    TBH I could do a better Dracula custom with an SS86 Scourge. That thing's going to be, like, £40 minimum too I bet :S

    Hi Everyone,
    So, it's time that I bow out of the collecting game. It's come to the point where I don't have the space anymore and the figures I'm buying are staying boxed and mostly sealed with the odd exceptions (ER Starscream, Netflix Bee, Siege Nemesis Prime). I've been collecting for collecting's sake for some time now and have not realised it.

    I'm going to be selling off stuff bit by bit so I don't overwhelm myself or the thread and so I can build up a reputation as a fair and reliable seller. I've mostly been collecting Classics stuff (Universe through Kingdom) and some 3P (PE Warden, FP Dinobots and Headmasters) to give you an idea of what I will be making available. I do have some of the harder to find recent releases (ER Coneheads, Runabout, SW and TC, Siege Ratchet, Selects Seacons) that I'll be looking to sell at reasonable prices.

    So let's start things off with.

    Earthrise - Seeker Elite (Ramjet and Dirge) - Opened - Sold = Opened but still secured in box
    Earthrise - Thrust - Sealed - Sold
    Siege - Takara Nemesis Prime - Loose - Sold = Complete but no box or instructions. - Sold
    Earthrise - Bluestreak - Sealed - £20
    Earthrise - Allicon - Sealed - Sold



    All prices will include postage within the UK which I will look to start shipping out from Monday.

    PM me and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

    But... you eat plastic robots! :confused: 

    Thanks. Not sure what the Decepticons will be up to yet or who they'd be teaming up with (and inevitable betrayal) The Borg are probably the most notable TNG villains but I dunno... Ferengi are right out :lol 
    While not strickly a TNG new race, Romulans could be interesting what with the mutual levels of sneaky backstabbing :p 

    Meh. Not doing it for me and not invested enough in the other property to be worthwhile on that front either.

    ...

    In other news, while I am not watching the trailer as I've not finished the first one yet, I am pleased to hear a trailer for Insomniac's Marvel's Spider-Man 2 has been released, as well as a Marvel's Wolverine game. Given how fantastically they have handled Spidey I can only imagine they'll do Wolverine justice. From the article I skimmed they apparently pitched a Wolverine game to Marvel rather than Marvel being like "Oh hey make us a Wolverine game"
    Long story short, I guess I'll be buying a PS5 in a few years as they're quoting 2023 at the moment for the Spidey game :D  if I'm in luck they may well have made a slim version by then and possibly a cheaper version, which is what happened with me and the previous two Playstations.
    Well ok technically my brother had a PS3 I used for several years but when I got my own it was a slim version and on discount :D

    If Q_Prime is sorted or has to pass, or just plain doesn't respond to his multiple taggery... and you can work out shipping to France, I think @Large is still after one...

    As others have said, changing SS86 Scourge's 'hovercraft' into a coffin would have made for a fantastic "Dracula".

    It's a real shame that Hasbro just went with 'Dracula = Bat = Mindwipe'.

    The novely of the figure does appeaal to me, but it's going to be one that I think long and hard about buying.

    UPDATE - He has a 'soft goods' cape? Sold! :oops:

    Have the paradron medics been reissued?
    There's suddenly loads popped up on eBay - under a hundred even with shipping. If you missed out, now may be the time.

    ...

    I need to look up the Mindwipe mold, but yeah, from memory it's bad. And apart from Gigawatt the crossovers aren't exactly thrilling relative to price!

    My attachment to the Universal monsters is actually from Kenner Ghostbusters then I started to appreciate the movie designs. NECA are doing fantastic versions.

    Brenden, I'm so sorry brother. Sincere condolences.


    oooh, love it, I'm in.

    Man, this is genius picture! Love it. Hell, I'm jealous I couldn't think of anything this creative. Bravo.

    Gnaw is on its way from ID.

    Apparently they’re only getting 75% of their Slags in initially. Looks like my Slags are in the other 25%. :( 

    If Pulse get theirs first I will be full of the tears.

    sooooo you're saying the best way to hide pot is to make a diorama and make it into trees?

    I am so impressed by this. Bookmarked for the future. Btw, maybe it's my filthy mind, but from some of the titles, was fully expecting these too be far too adult to open at work :D
