    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.

    Anyone here used curibo.co.uk?

    It does look legitimate but I wanted to check

    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…..

    "Quick driver, the Dingo is up to his old tricks!"

    Wombatmans calling card can be cubed poo. Left on the forehead of criminals he has apprehended.
    Naturally, the police do not consider wombatman an friend.

    I'm sure you know the proper choice *glances out window at over-grown garden and unfinished polytunnel*

    Get the toilet working, then set up your display room whilst catching up on preorders on your breaks!

    Woody Harrelson's Tobias Beckett is said to have killed her off screen some time between Episode 3 and Solo. Of course, he spends most of that movie lying so it could well be nonsense.

    Cool, Im trying to decide between Mafex, Yamaguchi or Marvel Select for my next figure...Psylocke.

    The Select version has the best look, the Yamaguchi has the best articulation and accessories and the Mafex is in between the 2 in terms of looks, accessories and articulation

    Nothing like a bunch of Marvel Legends arriving and every one of the three having QC issues.

    The joints on one Iron Man required the hairdryer (first time I ever had to do that with Legends o_O ) and has a massive paint blotch on his leg, the second has a pauldron glued in a different position to the other, and Ultron has a lotta dinges and paint that was ruined by being boxed too early on one side :mad: 

    I understand shit can't always go right, but the general quality has taken a nosedive from around the time of that rubbery AIM army builder and hasn't really recovered IME. The paint is usually the first sign :rolleyes:

    Knowing and doing are two very different things. Hmmm

    Ah a good compromise is definitely a useful suggestion.
    I must ponder my options!

    A package containing Jawas will be here tomorrow....Utinni! :D 

    Worms = Played the first couple on the Amiga and thought they were fun but haven't played any of the more recent ones.

    @Insurgent,
    I've only seen her cameo in a film that no longer exists in my canon and clips of when she appeared in The Clone Wars so I was just thinking of another character to potentially appear which would make sense for that series.

    I remember SW Demolition but don't think I ever owned it, I had that shitty fighting game Masters of Teras Kasi though.....plenty of crap SW games before EA came along and turned the galaxy far, far, away into a Death Star sized lootbox :D 

    @Seeiach & @MyTea Boc,
    Will Wombatman be part of the UK Thread Cinematic Universe? If so I'm playing The Ferret.

    I'm not the mustelid based hero the city needs right now but you'll get him anyway because he likes to ferret about :D 

    @Astro-Furby,
    I've had several MAFEX figures from Curibo and had no issues, one time when I cancelled something they even refunded the deposit which I was totally not expecting.

    Psylocke is one of the 3 other MAFEX figures I have pre-ordered but I might cancel as I'm not really fond of either headsculpt. Definitely keeping Gambit and brown costume Wolverine though!

    @Siege Fan,
    That sucks, will have to check my Ultron when it arrives. The worst figure I have for rubbery plastic is retro card Storm who's legs wilt every time the weather warms up and she flops even with chunks of blu tack under her feet.

    It's made extra annoying as she's part of the cartoon X-Men lineup so kind of essential....if Hasbro re-do her with pinless joints or Medicom make a MAFEX one I'll happily bin this one.

    Does Pledge or nail varnish create enough friction on Legends joints I wonder?

    C&C have the Ork's up for pre-order at £36 each. I've gone with a single deposit on a Big Mek in the end.

    Not sure....given the plastic Hasbro often use I'd be expecting it to melt the figure, I'm suprised it even holds paint :D
