    FOC Grimlock with bits of Darksteel. He's been mostly finished but on the bench for a couple of years now as I am a lazy sod

    He's a retool of ROTF Lockdown, which wasn't especially Bayverse either. But honestly, ROTF had some really great and weird new designs, and was probably the most creative point in that era of the franchise. I'd say it would be worth looking out for a few at TFN this year, but... well... :(

    Well, they had to go somewhere, right?

    RIP Thundercats reboot.

    Also, regarding continuity, I know this series has been touted as a continuation of the original but I find it much easier to think of it as a reboot or an aligned continuity.

    Like all reboots and reinventions it's just pick and choose. Marvel and DC have made a habit of being wishy washy with continuity, if you enjoy a story it happened, it you didnt like the story it didn't happen.

    Every time I think I have it narrowed down I think of an exception like Adam being 200X young Adam, so I've decided to just treat it as it's own thing. 'Toyguru' Scott recommends treating it as a multiverse. Smith himself said legally it can't be a continuation of the original and so it was a spiritual successor. Or some shit. But either way it was cribbing all round it and adding new stuff too.

    If I watch MOTU will I have a clue what’s happening? I never watched the original and what I know of He-Man is just general pop culture stuff

    @Prescient Has more details I believe.

    You'll be fine I reckon. And if you're not in all seriousness try She-Ra.

    I think that's probably the perfect level of interest needed for entry.

    Had a big clean in the house and unearthed all these lads for photos for sale. Feel free to peruse;) 

    Pretty much all my 2020 leftover lockdown purchases. Between these and my fondness for most of the 2000-2010 lines I am thinning these out.

    and @Siege Fan

    It seems this keeps happening on deliveries. Driver shortages etc etc. If you discuss politely on live chat you'll get a 10% off voucher and free dpd premium delivery on your next order or the difference back between next day and standard.

    Even dpd was a day late for me.

    Fyi for others, Game southampton has double dealer and ratbats in. Forbidden Planet loads of kingdom red alert.

    The hunt for the decepticons and reveal the shield sublines are both movie lines, but had some awesome stuff. They were just after rotf when designs and quality were at their peak and don't exactly lean into the movie look. That turbo tracks and jazz figures everyone had in their generations shelf for years came from there.

    Oddly enough, this did make me want to watch that thundercats again.

    That was the level i had. There's a brief intro at the start to set the scene, and other important info is given through dialogue, so while I'm sure there are references that will be missed, you will easily be able to follow the story.
