    That's the new Maz running pose, the LorDzeeD touching toes pose.

    I enabled myself with the Worlds Collide pack! Led astray by tarty Arachnia!

    Of course now I'm liable to enable folks with the Beasties :p 

    Cheers, just wish I'd ordered from BBTS weeks back like I should have done. Now they're out of stock.

    It's a massive case of Profit>Storage Cost with them, even for small retailers. It's why Tesco has them and even B&M don't discount them just to clear the shelf.

    Cheers! I may have ordered Scorponok. Hard to say. Yes. Beg your pardon, yeeeeesssss.

    Chippy tea was yummy and now I need to snooze.....no wonder I relate to ferrets so well as they're partial to a snooze post snack. They've got me well beat on flexibility, speed and cuteness though :D 

    Got a message from my buddy in the States and he's posting Classified Series Baroness with bike tomorrow :) 

    Which will leave Storm Shadow for my other main Cobra want.

    If the next one is based on that art I'll have to do a headswap with the one that comes with the Master of Disguise Zartan as the head on the artwork looks too "Mortal Kombat" and whilst I don't mind that kind of styling for the Red Ninja I'd prefer a more traditional look for the main man.

    Opening this up to the TFWUK Brains Trust, I'm stuck for what to do with Micromaster Barricade (Runner) II, anyone got an idea for a Micromaster or Mini-Con he can sub for/be modded into?

    I have yet to get him, if I even get him but if I do I will treat him as either a future version where he has changed into a micromaster, an alternate universe version or a new character, perhaps a partner for Barry, like Frenzy from the bay films

    Bit of a deep cut, but you could repaint him into Circuit, from the Sixturbo Micromaster team

    Not a close enough car mode for me I'm afraid the Roller Force/Barricade(Runner) bod reads as more a Baja Buggy, like Fizzle. He's a bit tiny for a fizzle though...althooooough That does remind me that there's Wildspark the Japanese deco knocking about...hmmm...

    I love this grumpy looking little bastard. I especially love him after unhooking his waist to give him a proper hunchbacked look like he had in the show.

    Just had a read through the KP Rodimus booklet and packaging and...jeez.

    I know 2004-6 aren't really the best years of franchise, but who thought that when a line of fully licensed, Western style-storyboarded, 1:24 die-cast transforming cars didn't sell well because there were too many repaints, a line of fully licensed, 1:24 scale plastic retools of the same moulds, partnered with just unreal art and retail for a higher price would do better?

    Funnily enough, a quick run at the TFwiki tells me that the chap doing these designs [not talking about the bots] is also the same fella who 10+ years down the line brought us MP Inferno, Megatron and Sunstreaker. Silver lining I guess?

    Those others look better though as the ones I found don't have the nice big packaging around them for display. They're just the little figure on their little card.

    Nice but i am hoping for a single figure release of her, the bike is a bit too cartoony for me.

    I would rather just buy a couple of 1/12 real world bikes for my Joes to use...them you get to give them your favourite 2 wheelers

    Since I discovered Google Pay doesn't seem to have a Contactless Limit that I can hit, I haven't used a bank card in ages, let alone the magnetic strip.

    The bike will be an accessory for various Marvel Legends Deadpools as the colour and style fit him better :D

    Lovely. I would love to own this but I just don’t have the space or cash sadly. Typical.

    I will admit, you're coming closest to getting me to crack on this one - the Iron Giant vibes are strong with this one. Well played.

    IMG_20210817_133829.jpg

    Obviously I'm going to be on the hook for the inevitable G1/Premium finish/G2 versions......but I'm learning to love Redhead as he is. Give us Snarl and Sludge with similar simple-but -genius leg transformations please. Even the "ugly" backpack folds away better than "non MPs" have any right to in hand.

    However hollowing out the Horns is going to remain one of those baffling WTF cost-cutting cheap-outs that the fractions of grams saved can't possibly justify.
