    :D 

    Funnily enough, I've not actually watched Hentai xD

    Yes yes I forgot about Shockwave :p 

    I love how you find all these weird Transformer altmodes :D 

    The lack of beast mode articulation is the single main reason I've not been drawn to buying the Beasties I think.

    :lol

    I've been thinking that folk complained about the deaths in tftm but really if the cartoon had been allowed to it would have shown a few deaths of characters through season 1 and 2. After all the whole story was pretty much about a war between two factions it's only realistic that there would be casualties.

    I wonder if there are episodes where the deaths would have fit better and been more meaningful.

    Then again the comic managed to kill off characters and make it work so I guess we sort of got that to some extent.

    Bit fiddly getting the feet transformed now, but doable. I'm very pleased with this.

    Had him pop his head up in tank mode and say hi to my wife. She laughed.


    Would anyone be interested in buying my doctor who and dalek figures? Got 1, 2, 4, 8, 9, 10, 11 and war doctor, plus various different daleks.

    The Henkei toys are lovely but I actually think the Classics is better on this rare occasion. The Henkei tries to go G1 like the 85 toy, but the design is based on the Pretenders Classic version. It means the US Classics version is actually more faithful to the intended design influence.

    Netflix have even stretched out the would-be child-friendly MOTU. All the quality and potential is right there so naturally they made ten 25 minute episodes where characters say and do things merely to kill time.

    How many other massive brands are they gonna tarnish this way? So far it's Marvel, MOTU and Transformers!

    I did the same with my Pulse orders. I regret paying for the premium membership now. Hey ho, more sales for the smaller businesses!


    TFSAFARI sent me some ramps which are solid. Also the ark stand thing. It’s simple but effective and I like using it as a prop.
    Also, Newage Hephaestus arrived! I ordered the full set from TFS Express so had to wait a bit and live vicariously through YouTube. However, it was worth it, individually they are what you expect really. It’s not Generation Toy but they are a stark improvement on Hulkie. Some have very good articulation the rest are only lacking in the foot area otherwise damn good.
    Combine mode is where this set really does shine though, trouserformer but I am happy with this as it reduces compromise in various areas. Articulation is amazing! Ab crunch and unhindered waist swivel are highlights.

    am i right in thinking leg fillers fold out and do away with the need for the partsforming shield piece? if so, nice!


    worryingly, I've convinced myself over the last few days that I'm gonna have to get a Studio Cell Unicron. Probably the new grey one as its cheaper and more available. whats gonna be my best option for getting hold of it? preliminary searches seem to indicate around £250 on ebay or aliex, $300 on show z or tfsafari, so probably around the same with shipping? am i equally as likely to get clobbered with customs via each of those? any other suggestions? ta

    A fucking flight stand. The fact that Leo's gun was a Tier 1 bonus is ridiculous anyway, but when others have quite rightly pointed out we're still missing tail whips and shields, somebody is taking the piss. Bonus items should amplify the experience, not complete it.

    I preordered the grey one when it came up on ShowZ and it arrived without getting caught in customs, though no guarantee you'll have the same luck.
    Absolutely love him. Looks fantastic in both modes and the transformation is pretty straightforward (only needed to look at the instructions in one or two places) even if there's a lot to do thanks to the sheer size of him.

    Just been fiddling with mine today as I have a sort out of a few bits to get rid of (definitely not this!)
    I'd love it if MMC found a way to reuse/remould their Eris for this (wings instead of tracks onthe back, maybe?). Or just any new, larger version really...

    I didn't think I was going to get any of the Unicrons, but Studio Cell Pumpkin version is absolutely perfect, absolutely what I wanted. Colours. Size. Outline. Weight. And that head/face design!

    Kudos to anyone who has the Haslab version, it's just a little larger and backpack heavy that what I would like and I'm not personally a big fan of the face. It's a great WFC Unicron and there's so many versions of Unicron there is definitely a place for him. Studio Cell was perfect for my needs.

    Ah I remember getting the Spectrum 128k as a child. Happy and simple times. Psychedelic load screens. RIP Sir Clive.

    100% agree. I was already miffed about the V-Lock cannon not being included as it’s a key part of Victory Saber.

    In the defence of the stand, the Victory V they’ve molded into it is pretty cool. Someone in the main thread came up with this but thought it would be really awesome for the final tier to upgrade the display stand to play the Victory theme and have some voice clips, maybe some lights or something? Now that’d be worth it.

    Give us the fucking whip and shield Hasbro.
