    I think I'm gonna have to buy that Bludgeon, the chances of Hasbro doing anything close to that...
    ...

    @Dropfire You'll be wanting at least prescription drugs for Kingdom, mate.
    ...


    Curiosity got the better of me so I ordered Teela here.

    Make sure your headphones are charged, I got caught out by the SO after saying I was editing her sisters family photos for her but instead was watching the 1986 movie :D

    Do we know how tall the Super7 Ultimates Transformers are? I have yet to see any in-hand pics or videos of wave one yet!

    Just watched Kingdom episode 1. As turgid as expected. What I wasn't expecting was for beast Megatron's voice to give me covid.

    Assume same size as their other stuff, so 6”/7” scale.

    Shame they haven’t mentioned a UK stockist - previously C&C have got the nod.

    Couple of brilliant things in Radicons today!

    Firstly, 3D printed sound effects for your figures!!

    ...and then a way to infinitely improve the Masterverse Skeletor figure -

    See this is where I found things quite difficult. Rattrap was trying to sound like his old counterpart, and to be honest it seems like it was written that way too. It greatly annoys me to see it done this way and then not to at least try bring back some of the originals. I think this is where Hasbro doesn't understand the nostalgia part in some ways - it is the voice that makes a lot of the characters.

    And I really dislike Primes voice, even more than before. Talking slowly to convey injury as he can't make the character sound injured as he talks says a lot about the skill and expertise of the voice actor.

    I felt like Rattrap was... how to put this... like he was trying to go for that SORT of voice, without trying to go for exactly mimicking the voice? Which I am inclined to say is a better way of doing it that getting someone to try and mimmick exactly. I'm all for the principal that if you're going to cast new people, given them a chance to perform the role themselves rather than forever be in the shadow of other actors.

    Prime remained the weakest performance.

    ...

    Forgot to say before, I liked the direction they took with the Maximals and Predacons being from a dark future rather than doing exactly the same thing as Beast Wars

    Thank you both for the birthday wishes. Just back from having an amazing curry, jalfresi, ghaly masala, jaipuri and manchurian. Rolled out!

    Got an inferno transformers wise which was nice. Now need to pick up a Grapple. Anyone got one spare? Also need a hoist too.

    Got a transformers and a terminator comic book as well as logan blu ray, bsg the plan, bsg 1980 and loads of sweets.

    Oh, also got a Boba Fett made from nuts and bolts, it is cool.

    Away to order a bad cube blaze and mp spin out, maybe. Still trying to convince myself.

    Got my Galvy with sloppey shoulders, he's taking no blame for anything ever! Lol

    So I'd definitely recommend this figure though there's some weird choices going on. The box art and no fucking ties are welcome though.

    20210729_210950.jpg 20210729_211202.jpg

    That face sculpt obviously won't be for everyone. And if you look closely the torso is made of some super weird, textured, slightly shiner material. Plus the top half of the torso reverts back if you try to twist it :confused: 

    Another thing to note is the loin cloth will even hinder a running pose a little, never mind leaping or whatever. Couldn’t even get a good pic!

    20210729_211656.jpg

    A second closed fist to go with the one you get would have made sense.

    There's no backpiece on the harness for the sword, the harness' support part has to hold it.

    20210729_212544.jpg

    The wrist bracer and guard are removable.

    The plastic quality is about the same as the Filmation Classics so not quite the same as standard Classics. Certainly a few steps above Origins.

    The shield's the right size at least.

    All that said, he's got real presence and he'd make for a perfect display piece or a gift (to yourself). Definitely recommend.
