    Patrick Moore explaining cheats and walk throughs was genius casting by the production team. "When in the mansion go up the stairs, then look in the hallway cupboard, take the sawn off shotgun. Insert the two carrots you found on the doorstep and blast that manpig all the way back to pre civilisation. Good luck adventurer"

    Maladjusted Nerds best stay away from Toy Galaxy, that channel has become a favourite of mine

    It's more about the toy history buffs, or would-be ones. Think academic with an ego getting their bona fides questioned by their rival.

    Vicks First Defence always works for me?

    Transformers: Generations - Shattered Glass Optimus Prime & Ratchet 5.5-7” Action Figure 2-Pack

    Use HASBRO at checkout, even with postage it should be a good deal. I use them all the time. Look around for other shit too!

    No idea, I just remember it from a TF Annual my brother has as a kid. I know it was G2 as it had a purple and green tank Megatron in it :D

    Oh wow, that's a neat bit of info!

    I'm still making my way in this world :D  looks like @Astro-Furby got you sorted though:thumb

    They work really well as minibots for mainline TFs. I think MFT captures the characters really well. Until Hasbro have a proper go at them, MFT versions will remain in my collection.

    Did you order via AliExpress?

    I think you will be safe and have time to enjoy these before Hasbro get them done.

    I think we will get an official one but even if there is a delay you get to enjoy the MFT figures you have ordered.

    I am looking forward to Pipes and Puffer. Just a bit miffed that the fillers were so good for Huffer I’m on the hook for fillers for these as well.

    I found these old pics:

    They're certainly not dreary, despite group designation.

    Thank you. That shot's a personal favourite. He's an amazingly photogenic little fucker.

    And I think that highlights some of the issues with the channel: a)It's possible to be right and still be a total twat (tone is everything in communication, right). b) Dickheadish rants and digressions lead to unhelpful conflation, which is the enemy of a clear argument. c) Take shit less personally, you petulant bumhole. d) try not to insult people as much, you stinky fanny.

    The guy's a joke, man. But it's like watching people get in a strop on Love Island. Which is to say, highly entertaining.

    or

    Anyway, with all this talk I thought I might fling my ring into the hat. Enjoy.

    yes i ordered via Aliexpress. While i see the potential for being good scaled minibots, i'm technically building my collection with another criteria...

    Those pics with Swerve are hilarious! Poor dude, in the cartoon the most memorable thing he did was getting stomped by Trypticon

    Oh man, i love those dudes! A shame Hasbro didn't do a thing with them and i think i'm the only one that would buy three repaints with those color schemes of the Deformation Space Starscream. DS could also give them personalized details in the wings, like lightnings for Ion Storm and flames for Nova Storm
