    I have a lot to say on this subject (check out my signature) ;) 

    I ended up liking Kingdom least in many ways but it's extremely close between all three tbh. The pacing is better than the previous two instalments and Megafan aside the Beast Wars characters are done well enough I suppose... but what a pathetic ending to a pointless war and needless quest? Prime is the real bad guy of this series, for hogging all the attention, speaking to damn slowly and essentially indirectly killing hundreds, maybe thousands, maybe more of his fellow cybertronians... what a prick.

    Fantastic toy line though.

    Phew, my invoice email for Slag turned up from C&C overnight.

    That will be Dinobot number two in my hands next week.

    Me too. Its good to see more movies dipping their toes into outright lovecraft these days. Still a shame Mr. Del torros St the Mountains of madness fell through

    Fuck sake. Didn't know Stanley was up to no good.

    Ditto, gnaw is processing

    Yeah. Mountains of Madness might be my favourite of Lovecraft's works, so I hope there's a decent big screen adaption some day.

    Morning All,

    That’s Slag, Wreckgar and Gnaw balance paid with C&C like others have.

    I checked Pulse to make sure no safety orders with them. Just Wreckgar cancelled. I have x2 Gnaw at the processing stage with them. What’s the chance they mess up the payment?

    Old you say...

    If it's any consolation I enjoy garden centres more than toy shops these days.

    At this point I'm gonna stop asking questions and just be happy. They left it with a neighbour, despite me never saying I had neighbours it could be left to. Still, yippee!

    Underrated bit of highly enjoyable schlock IMO, Jamie Lee Curtis in lead plus always up for some elder Sutherland Ham!

    Went in cold to both Spring and The Endless and enjoyed both, particularly the former. Definitely not where I expected it to go!

    I still haven't combined mine. Or installed the tighter joints. I think the thing is that I have no attachment to Star Saber the character, he's just a cool design that hits all my buttons (cool jet combing to be a bigger jet, cool robot with sword combining to be a bigger cooler robot with a bigger sword). But in terms of Ultimate Final Combination, Victory Saber always seemed a bit... meh, compared to something like God Ginrai. It's just a backpack and some platform boots.

    (Plus I scratched the gold chest bits on Simba the first time I tried to transform him).

    I love Power Baser + Gor Armor, but I can't help but think that in terms of an actual toy both him and Victory Saber just become a bit too unwieldy at that scale. Lovely display pieces though.

    Also, in case no-one else has noticed, Ocular Max's Springer (Saltus) is in stock at Omegalock. I lasted about twenty minutes before ordering. Let's see if the great run of Springer toys continues...

    Oh yes, the "we're all one big family" and "we care about our staff's welfare" bullshit rapidly goes out the window once profits are under threat. Good luck in (I assume) finding another role mate!


    Haha! My sober voice talks me out of stuff. Drunk voice on the other hand.... Everything is a great idea! :lol 


    Me too

    Very old, not particularly good photo, but the only one I could find of my 3.75 Guardians lineup. It's a shame Hasbro have abandoned the 3.75 lines (other than Vintage Collection to placate the hardcore SW fans). I do have the MCU guardians in 6 inch scale, as that was the only scale you could collect the full team.

    @kgorman79 and (I think) @SJW we were discussing the Wheel of Time a few months back, have you seen the trailer for the Amazon series?
    I'm cautiously optimistic...

    Ooof, no, far too much maintenance all that. I'm of the opinion that vegetation is fine everywhere except around my house.

    I feel you, I got way to excited by a bargain giant bag of bird seed I got the other day...
