    @barry won't be around to accept your appreciation of his so called comedy, as he's hastily packing a bag and leaving town before CNN set up round his house..

    Just remembered: Authentics Alpha Shockwave has appeared in my local B&M.
    I don’t want it but if anyone wants one at cost + postage I’m happy to sort something out.

    Is this the 2002 Grayskull? I actually need the left hand turret and gun placement if you end up with spares of those. Not sure how I lost those I'm usually better than that.

    Oh great, thanks! I'm wondering if it's the downward pressure from the plastic ties in the box that's warped the plastic a little. I've now wrapped a load of the missus hair ties around it and left it in the airing cupboard, we'll see what that does.

    It doesn't come with those unfortunately, but I'm pretty sure I saw those parts on ebay last night?

    I spoke to the dude today and aside from a spirited discussion about hasbro and their varying levels of treatment for their different brands, he told me they had not been put on the website yet.

    I also bought a bunch more.

    Yes, I will balance the colours out later because they are triggering my ocd too

    Probably end up with a solid connection, might not even need to leave it overnight. Let us know because that’ll be another one to try, never considered the airing cupboard either!

    Those are wonderful, how much and are there more colours?

    I wish! Btw, if anyone has resisted and have now caved on BW like I might have done (you'll never prove it), now's the time between clearance prices and limited availability on the likes of Dinobot and Primal short of scummy Pulse prices.

    The scale's way off I reckon (I'll test it later) but I might have Jumanji's Elusive Jaguar here facing forward but on a lower level near the back of the Skull Throne or whatever it's called.

    Excellent, I too intend a flying squadron for mine!

    i only saw these colours in stock. £5 each which is a steal IMO.

    also have this bigger one for £7. I saw this in white and green.

    I will definitely be picking up more because they are pretty cool and well engineered and it would be nice to add some verticality to my displays.

    Also if this is how much effort Bandai put into their stands then I think I might dip my toe into an actual gundam model kit

    Welp, Mashley has failed me - the Battle Masters have not landed, at least in this part of West Yorkshire, as yet!
    Though a Discount Sky Lynx has joined the Spy Patrol 2s & Battle Squads on the wee Hasbro shelf section, as well as some kind of Cyberverse Prime (which version it was has entirely slid off of my brain), I thought it said £48 squid but it's more likely the £58 - my attention left the building once realising there were no roadfellas!
    Also had a cheeky peek in TK Maxx whilst on my Aldi Rum Run in case Buzzworthy Bumblebee Madness had occurred but, nope, no "Oh my god, what's the World's Collide set doing here?!" to report. Though the Buzzworthy Megses had obviously been cleared out, in fact all that remained of their paltry TF stock was a last set of the Siege Micromaster off-Road Patrol.

    Not a total bust as I still came home with 2 x sets of the Final Faction Covert Arms pack (for Turbo Board-ing, 1 x spare in case my more ambitious idea fails in execution), 1 x the Air assault set for a Stolen/Borrowed Rocket Pack for Core OP (unfortunately it turns out to not be as plug'n'play as I thought from the snaps posted during our Final Faction talk), some top-up Mr.Hobby Aqueous Hobby Colors (Shine Red, Sky Blue, & FS16440 Grey - I'm taking the punt that the FS Grey will be pretty close to toy Galvy's grey), an A4 piece of 2m Styrene board (for reasons), and, of course, the RUM!

    EDIT: Ignore me, the Rocket Pack is indeed attachable sans modding, the posts hook over the front wheels mounting, and the wee hinge for his cab "lid" clicks right in the top recess! I'd assumed it pegged on when it wedges/clips securely instead - D'OH!

    I have a query though, Lads, what's a good mid-range Stanley-ish (the wider disposable retracting blade sort) craft knife to finally upgrade from my cheapo Poundland remaining one that's splitting itself, not looking to go to that sort of Leatherman high end, I just fancy a craft knife that'll last a bit better, any suggestions for a good value/durability finger-nicker?

    That’s wonderful, what website can you find them? At £5 those other ones are a steal too but £7 for that is incredible. The style works well with Transformers, but then again they’re designed for mecha I assume so you know.

    That's great! They look much better made than most of the others I've seen
