    Its the only game in town. If you want to support HasTak making cool new versions of semi-obscure characters you sort of have to back it. That's why I'm backing it even though I don't like short-ass Victory Leo (that's Ginrai ffs)

    It's likely that once you get it in hand, should you hate it, you'll be able to move it on very easily.

    I backed it but there's a lot recently that's gave me pause for thought like the cost of Rodimus, Shattered Glass and some serious QC issues with the super-expensive Ark. Putting out a $350 HasLab with alleged problems is not helping the icky feeling.

    Oh I really dig what I see and happily back it. I just meant in relation to the mentioned QC issue of Haslab Sentinel.

    The next wave of SS Bayverse Deluxes has officially been revealed and there are still no pre-orders. I find that a bit more off.

    Wave 4 of Kingdom hasn't even officially been revealed yet.

    I won the very same KO AOE Grimlock at the beach last Tuesday. Cost us £20 and over 1500 tickets but the whole family had fun and it was much better then what else was on offer without murdering the bank.

    I think he generally stands up for what he believes in. Like there's a YouTuber called Michael Mercy who is supposedly especially catty bts. Analog there and others clubbed together and bought him Unicron only to find Mercy allegedly likes to manipulate his circle of friends somewhat. Analog puts out a video to that effect, something quite unusual for the toy community IME at least.

    Yup, there's thoughts to be had about the future! Part of me backing it was the likely ability to sell it (probably at profit too) if it came to that.

    I really could do with Sunday deliveries making a dedicated comeback!
    ...

    Here's proper pics for the new MOTU and Super 7 stuff. Looks great!

    I was looking to see what the price of G1 Blitzwings are these days since I ordered the Legends+ scale Thunderbolt from MFT and would like to have them side by side. Came across this instead :p

    Awww, thanks y'all. Really appreciated.

    @Shepard Prime and @Xaran Alamas - Ta for picking up on that. Setting up the shot with posing, angles and (as much as I can get away with indoors) lighting just makes the next bit that much easier. And fun!

    Milliput or plastic shavings melted in solvent are the two main methods. Milliput being the easier starter option.

    After selling it, and having remorse ever since, finally picked this back up from @Destronus
