    Let the announcements of the unobtainable begin! (possibly)

    I've been let down by RM today, Ramjet and Rodders were both supposed to be delivered today... The delivery window has been well and truly missed.

    Still, at least Mirage and BW Grimlock are here and are both lovely.

    A quick Google around reveals that their drivers are generally(?) self-employed, which was a bit of a surprise as I'm sure I've seen the liveried vans relatively recently. Mind you, the pandemic has comprehensively buggered my sense of time.

    Perhaps Yodel were caught between the not-cheap likes of Parcelforce and the not-real-employers likes of Hermes and took the downhill path.

    Further mantelpiece rearranging has occurred. Still want a taller Soundwave than Siege, to balance MPKO Shockwave, but I've crammed the coneheads on now for improved visual balance generally. Apologies for naff photo and naff wallpaper:

    I now have enough to put in a competitive tender for local council services. Just need a bunch of cheap, non-unionised Junkions to do the actual work .........

    I know the feeling, my nephew just assumes I'll have TFs any time me or anybody else shows up!

    Maybe get your daughter to try the 80s intro? It's got an even better tune than He-Man's!

    The Sweep looks a slightly different colour from Scourge.

    Glad it was that up first, I missed the start.

    That Perceptor is sexual.
