    Here's the thing about birthdays, right.. Lady Napalm always nails them. A cheeky bottle of rum, my favourite treats, a set of er.. Transformers or something(?) and... AND...

    ..a video message from the voice acting legend that is David Kaye. Unbelievable. Just fantastic.

    And thank you everyone, notifications through the wazoo and it wasn't even @doucoo :lol  I'll like and respond in due course. Happy birthday @MissingSea!

    Apparently we’re getting a blue ‘Silverstreak’.

    Yay!

    My most wanted Diaclone repaint is now a red Hoist (preferably served with a yellow Trailbreaker).

    I see, thanks! And that does sound strange, everyone in this universe is X-TREME!

    Also, you shouldn't eat LEGO figures ;) 

    Oooh is that that Wrecker Combiner? :O

    Oh man this guy xD

    I really need to retrieve my old BW toys from the storage unit they're in. No idea what condition they'll be in as I didn't pack 'em...

    Oh wow:jawdropper: :jawdropper: :jawdropper:  She's a keeper! And birthday message from David Kaye? Yesssssss.

    I’d be all over a red Mirage in his Kingdom mold.

    Yes, it's Ruination, or most of him with Blast Off as one foot. He's the only toy of Xaaron there is, so as a Marvel UK fan I kind of have to own one. And I do. Hurrah! :) :oops: :rolleyes: :cool: :D 

    Me too, but he has to have his toy-face, a la the "invisible" version! :)

    So HoF Maverick arrived at last...and he is great...the bot mode is ok but the jet mode is sublime...one of the best Jetformers out there...Only a small bit of kibble (the arms) but as they are exactly where the F-14 carries its big missiles and bombs you can easily head-canon it as a weapons/recon pod.

    The plastic looks much better in hand, as does the paint job...but said paintjob could have been a bit better and carried over to the underside.

    So, while the seekers may have better bot modes i dont think anything is as god in alt mode...the only thing that could come close is TR Blitzwing if you took off the turret and tank treads

    Does seem crazy that they only used that face on a figure that was pretty hard to come by. I'd love a Selects red Mirage and even a black one like they sell in the dodgy G1 fakes line.

    Received my Kingdom Red Alert for ID toys last week. Very nice figure, but I did do some touch ups on the rear lights and vents on the doors. I also added a nicer Autobot symbol on Red Alert's Chest.

    I did see the news on the Kapow Toys site about Sandstorm being delayed and no date when it will be available. That was a bummer as I am looking forward to that figure.

    So here's a genuine criticism of Kingdom Galvatron - his hands. They're well-moulded as hands go, but it grates a little bit that the tooling budget had room for the TWO spaceship guns AND the matrix-onna-chain... but not hands that open like ER Optimus or SS86 Hot Rodney. I would happily have given up the spaceship guns in return for hands that can grasp the matrix properly.

    Roll on upgrade kits I suppose, but perhaps I'll wait to do it for the grey version only.

    You know, my childhood lego frequently ended up with tooth-marks in from using my stupid gob to prise them apart, but throughout my entire life I never managed to accidentally ingest a single piece. That's got to be an achievement.

    You can have your red Mirage AFTER I get my Slapdash.
