    Also @Beefkr10z

    With the speed of the sell out on HOF and Sports Direct, they either had a final pallet or it was customer returns.

    So Game, still part of the sports direct group delivered sky lynx today.

    Just look at the packaging...It exists!!!! No plastic bag like HoF/SD but a real box even with the air cushions too. Guess that's why it's £58 not £40. Case fresh, sharp corners etc. 100% worth the extra money imo.

    I got the delivery refunded as following some lengthy web chat we estsblished that despite their site saying order by 7pm Friday for Sat delivery, they no longer provide this.

    Well, that's Maverick ordered from Sports Direct, thanks for the heads-up! :)  £30 shipped, guess that's normal Voyager price in these bold new days. :rolleyes: 

    Now we shall see what, if anything, transpires... :D

    Sorry mate I missed this one, I got him from Australia on eBay at a bit of mark-up. I think @Napalm got his from Robot Kingdom at RRP. I haven’t had to pay any import on mine since he sailed through customs. Haven’t had a chance to open him yet.

    Apparently I am now leader class
    upload_2021-7-26_11-57-43.png
    Which either means I'm big, or Voyager size with a lot of accessories.
    I'm inclined to say the latter :lol 

    Hmm not specifically anything independent as the two of them form the upper torso and arms in combined mode, but it might well be possible to fan mode something.

    Edit: Neat

    Edit2: Indeed! Talkin the Magic Henshin thread is she'll be able to combine with the girls in some way, my guess is either as an alternative to the Dragon Tank and/or Scarlet Sonic (the red girl)
    Also Beetle Lady Villainess is coming, and some other concepts by the main art guy though they've yet to be confirmed if they're coming or not, or if they're just fan art or not.
    Big Fire Bird MagicHenshin Series Said thread

    :lol 

    :lolol 
    Is that the Twincast from MP Roadrage? And that's Vertebreak... who are the soldier guys?

    Ahahah, poor Vehicons. Especially if the fan theory that they're made in the same was as Starscream's clones are, that means somewhere there's an original Vehicon feeling the pain of every single Vehicon :lol 

    :bday  @Napalm @MissingSea

    Ah, are the Animutant ones the European releases?

    Mjolnir toolbox? o_O

    Huh, not seen that green G1 Grimlock before. I guess RiD2015 had some precedent for a green dino Grimlock :O

    Wow, nice haul. Is that some of your BBTS stuff coming to fruition? Didn't realise the Wind Raider was out yet.

    They're Call of Duty Mega Construx figures. They scale really well with MP cars... not so great with CHUG. But when they're around things like dinosaurs and the like the scale issue is a non-issue.

    What IS an issue is that Mega Construx don't make any figures that aren't licenced, so you can't get regular people in regular clothes. I've got Game of Thrones, Halo, Borderlands and CoD figures, but a normal person in, like, jeans and a t-shirt? Nooope.

    Honestly, I'm not just saying this, but a range of figures the height of lego minifigs but realistically proportioned? I WOULD EAT THAT SHIT UP.

    Yup, and the Wind Raider should hopefully hit the UK soon because this one was PoL'd for weeks before shipping which took further weeks!

    Sold it last week, sorry! You don't have ebay alerts set up for it I assume?

    It sold for just under £40 on auction.

    :lol  I don't know what you're talking about, I bought mine when I was hella drunk and he's lovely. He has a special place right at the back of my favourite shelf, next to two Korean Headmaster KOs.

    I can never sell him now. I feel unworthy even to dust him.
