    Finally got round to making the fossilizer combiner, he’s alright (limbs have a tendency to do whatever they want) but I think I will put it in the three headed monster mode that Tonton showed off in his video.

    Nemesis Huffer looks cool! :D 

    I have a friend who would totally do that... and their Dad too. One of them apparently once put an artist hand mannequin in the window giving the middle finger :lol

    Not forgotten dude.

    Soon, very soon. Have a zartan as well as his vehicle but the handlebars are broken.


    You are indeed the Betta kollector!

    Wow, amazing set up. Amazing display.


    Count me in, even got a pass already. Will try and do the weekend too depending on flights.



    Make it so, I have spoken and it is the way.

    I don't think we need a bigger boat though

    Better than whiffing like me at tfn next year!

    I'm changing no clothes all weekend!

    Ah sorry, I missed it. Was too late!


    Dip dab was the best sherbert. Don't know how many times I got confused by double dip and sherbert dip. School any error!


    So, is that actually a thing, being up to date on this thread?

    Absolutely! Had it as a kid, plus he's Fisto's horse. And will lead to Night Stalker. And has blast effects. And...

    Hey, BTW, that Masterverse Fisto has a die-cast fist, a minor miracle these days!

    "What happened Fisto?

    "It went rusty He-Man!"

    Die-cast in a mass market figure line is definitely a rarity!

    Fisto, Ram Man and Chopper.....the people behind MOTU had minds in the gutter :D 

    And wasn't Mer-Man originally going to be called Sea-Man? or is that just my mind being in the gutter? :D

    No, He was originally called Fillet-Tio. But that would have been too on the nose.

    Been messing with the Ark this afternoon, still can't decide if it's a work of genius or a pile of utter crap. The Iron Giant-y/Last Autobot form has really grown on me, but the fact the Ark barely stays tabbed together and that massive underside gap.........it's not a very good spaceship.

    Dunno. Jury's out.

    :D 

    Recently I was watching a YouTube video about the Rocky IV Director's Cut that's coming out and was reminded that one of Apollo's many nicknames was The Count of Monte Fisto so I got a bonus laugh :D

    According to that motu documentary on Netflix, Sea Man was the proxy name that they used until the writing and creative guys got involved.

    Skeletor was Bone Man, too.

    Good job that never took off, as I doubt we'd have ever seen Boneasaurs then...
