    You lilly livered bastard, you didn't let these guys know there's a US led airstrike due on your gaff. You're like Iran or something.

    As there's no sign of a reply from ToyFu, I've ordered my TFN Big Broadcast 2021 Tee and a copy of Billy's book from MTMTE to support the event, given they've all done it for free again this year!

    To be fair, I'd have put in the support regardless of the Toy Fu Purchase and will probably do a Toy Fu donation anyway :D

    So, the seller has agreed to a £30 partial refund on Grayskull, happy with that. I've ordered a junker grayskull with the parts I need that I will hopefully be able to sell on once I've harvested it.

    Also, opened Rodimus, but I've got a horrid bug so haven't been able to truly appreciate him yet. Can't get the trailer to close either! Is there a non-modding technique that works?

    Also also, saw skylynx in game yesterday, 58 quid.

    I’m not sure how much it works but apparently if you keep it closed with a rubber band it’ll fix itself. I saw a post on one of the Facebook groups saying that gently flexing the orange plastic where the long pins are helps keep it closed. It’s worth a try?

    @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?
