    Beautiful and solid figure even if the "transformation" is him doing a push up. Unfortunately I got two right shooting hands so I can't get the best poses until ShowZ sort that.

    Nice to see invoices heading out for the Rainmakers - hoping for one from Comics & Cocktails at some point soon too.

    I think Prowl and Ironhide should be arriving today from Bargainmax to brighten up this rainy day (at least it's not frigging sweltering though).

    Anyway, let's get a wash on.

    I'm one of those rare ones that does get the few MPs I still own down off the shelf for a mess about every now and again. That is why I stan so much for MP Grimlock and Star Saber, they are fun to transform.

    But 100% agree with you, I'd rather the hollow part be under-wrist than at the side, but I'm sure there is some engineering choice behind it.

    Time to consider shelving in the bathroom - let 500 robot eyes stare at you and yours while on ze crapper.

    It is a general pondering by myself - baseless theory really, just that both organisations seem to have trouble getting the figures out before anyone else despite their proximity to the source. Not really a complaint, I'd rather get my figures from fine retailers such as yourself ;) 

    :lolol

    I’m in love with all the Dino rider themed fan modes. Really cool.

    Thanks! I'm quite happy with how they turned out, and a big part of what I do in game now is tweak their bios whenever I get a new idea. The best/worst part is that I do the same for all my crew members too, even though nobody reads those but me :lol

    Oh wow! Deleted as spam! Ha!

    I won't plug the thing I'm apparently spamming you with again. Instead I'll say I've started attending a nice little Transformers meet up in Brighton, it's been really good to have a few beers and a chat with fellow collectors. Plus I get to see (be tempted by) some cool stuff. For example.

    It puts me in mind of that bone-riders subline of Bonesaurs that never made it to market. Such a shame, I'm sure much fun could have been had riding some bones.

    Mon Ami, you do realise reminding everyone of him has just reset the clock on his "Surprise! You totally gave up & forgot about this guy!" release on BargainMax or somewhere - For Shame! :p  We all who wouldn't pay the Toll need to just give up & forget for him to suddenly appear!

    They look amazing! I'm currently using some 3 tier clear plastic acrylic ones but could get some of these to fit in the gaps I have.
    Out of curiosity could you fit a Combiner Wars combiner on the top tier?

    Not had a thing myself yet :( 


    You and me both, Slag will forever be his name in my house (and apologies to those who may or may not be offended by this, it certainly is not intended to)


    I feel like they hate me, not had anything through :( 

    and rightly so!

    I'm guessing I won't be getting mine anytime soon then ... wouldn't be first time, I was literally one of the last to get my Scourge

    I'm so sorry. I hadn't read it properly. Forgive me?

    My display space is currently very stretched due to buying way too much stuff so I'm always rotating several shelves which isn't ideal but will have to do for the time being, just a bit annoying that I'm now at a stage where some new arrivals will have to stay in the packaging.

    AEW might be more tolerable to me if they lost Excalibur as that'd at least make matches more listenable instead of having to turn the sound off :D
