    I think I read somewhere Aura Sing was killed between episode 3 and 4, possibly by Bobba? But that was old EU, so she could very well come back in the present. I'd be happy for her to come back, other than her cameo in Phantom Menace, I know her from the PS1 game Star Wars Demolition. She was on a Swoop and her special was a sniper rifle that could blast the picked up weapons off her target as well as cause damage. Man, that was a fun game. If Bossk was on the sail barge, he could easily have jumped off before the explosion. After all, the guy with the white tail thing round his neck survived, makes sense others could have too.

    I've only played the first one, but I've watched plenty of reviews and cutscenes of the other two. I gave it a pass on the first one because it was her first adventure, but she's just as bad in the other two. Give me sassy, athletic jumping around doesn't give a monkey's Lara over realistic lara any day.


    Also, Yes, Worms was awesome. Loved playing that with my brother and dad back on pc in the 90's. Original Worms, of course.

    Ownership of a grapple hook would take you one step closer to being the Batman.

    If memory serves, it's the weapon that took out Devy in ROTF.

    Of course, there is one railgun that rules them all....

    Nice magnets.

    My little cadre of miscreants began with worms, progressed with worms united and peaked at worms 2. I was quite the dab hand at the ninja rope and threading the super-sheep down the little blow-torched tunnels to kill mein enemies.

    At one point I had the Yorkshire Tykes Soundfiles mapped to my windows functions. Helped to lessen the annoyance of a program crashing when instead of an annoying ping it said 'oh bugger'.

    I think next time one of my mates suggests a game night, rather than cards or something, I'm going to suggest huddling around the PC for a game of worms. I mean, we can still bet on that :p

    Yeah that wrinkle occurred to me too... naturally if either were to be dropped I'd drop Thunderblast.
    On the other hand we got Hubcap and Bumblebee who are both yellow. On ther other other hand Hasbro seem less willing to take risks on Fembots.

    And yes, we need Nautica! You'd think her having a highly distinct alt mode to any of the multitude of car or bike fembots and the occasional jet would be in her favour. A heavy remold of Scourge could certainly work. His altmode is practically perfect but for me just a head swap won't cut it, this torso is too barrel chested.

    :lol  Run away!

    If Star Saber is a testbed for future combining super mode gimmicks, perhaps he could herald a new Thunderwing?

    Haven't got the abs for that - but I'll bet I have the bodyfat ratio to go for Wombatman!

    You know, I could see them retooling Star saber into Thunderwing now that you mention it.

    No deskbot today as I have to go into the office for training this afternoon and at a Dr appointment this morning so woo.

    Instead watch me rock back and forth as I watch my C&C order for Slug and Gnaw not be dispatched immediately because I'm an impatient and anxious fucker.

    MPM 03 bumblebee ko on tfsafari for 30 quid? Hmmmmmm....... Go on then. It is Bee after all. Was only gonna do Prime and Megs, to have the movie and the G1 side by side. But I do have G1 MP Bee v1 so it'll still work (realistic alt modes! Yey!). Resisting the 100 quid starscream and 40 quid ironhide on kapow though. Don't want to go all the way on mpm's. Also threw in two sets of go better studio wheels for earthrise ironhide and ratchet. Best looking wheels I've seen.

    Raining here too. Been waiting for it, first time since I patched the roof that it's rained and need to see if it worked. It looks like it has. Hopefully it'll keep raining a bit and I can check fully.

    C&C emailed me this morning to say my Gnaw/Wreckgar and Slag have shipped. I was hopeful I may receive them on Wednesday given they had processed over the weekend. Looks like Friday/sat will be more like it. If it comes on Saturday I’m out for the day for my son’s belated birthday bash.

    I bet, you receive your order before I do...

    @Insurgent - is that the LT KO of MPM Bee? I have that. Really happy with it.

    Dropping down here on the Essex/Suffolk border.

    Yeah, the LT ko 1:1 size. LC03 I think is the number. He'll go nicely with the LT Prime KO I have. Glad to hear you're happy with him. Anything I should watch out for with it? The Prime needed a couple of screws loosening in the foot to stop his ankles snapping, and his waist screw.

    @Seeaich don't know if you know of these, but saw these FEITE Diaclone bits and thought they might be useful for your base population projects. I know you've got various bits and pieces but can't remember what you used in your Max.

    Roof fix is 99% there. Instead of constant dripping from multiple places, it's just the odd one drop from one place. Think I'll go out and put another layer of covering down, with some more angles around the connections, and that should have it done. But at least it's now barely dripping. Progress!

    My dive into 3rd party legends starts with this little lad. I’m incredibly impressed, and I’m seriously considering purging some of my collection to get more.

    After finding out about the fan mode Ironhide/Ratchet mode and the nonnef kits, I’m no longer content to use the Deseeus drone as Diaclone Ironhide - need a black version of the Earthrise mold with the nonnef sled kit for maximum Diaclone goodness.

    I got my mafex homecoming spiderman v1.5 from them last year. Was the only thing I've ever bought from them, but it was from @bcm77 recommendation, and I believe he's bought from them a couple of times.

    Now then,
    Which is a priority?
    Board out the loft
    Install kitchen
    Install bathroom
    Paint and decorate whole house
    Set up workshop
    Set up display room
    Build art studio
    Replace flooring and build furniture

    Or……..
    Ensure I am up to date on any pre orders and make sure I don’t get behind on my collecting?

    Its a tough one isn’t it!
    I hate being a responsible adult…..
