    Need to get back to my couch to 5K as soon as this covid malaise passes.. feeling mostly better, will go for a test tomorrow to make sure I am fit to join the unwashed masses in the streets, and also need to get back into playing some football.

    As far as resin printers go, I think the Elegoo Mars 3 is the best option right now for both price and quality, but resin printers come with their own baggage - you'll need some kind of resin washing apparatus and a UV curing kit. Their quality is amazing, though.

    I love the lighting on Wreck Gar!

    Alas they never made a KO of that figure, just Tracer and Reaper. You can still get Widowmaker though, Kapow have her instock for £70 and she is a great figure and Tracer is £44 on the Blizzard Gear Store. Or get the KO Tracer and paint her...one of her ingame skins has purple trousers

    But be warned...once you get one of these Overwatch Figma girls you will want the others, after getting WM I ended up getting a proper Tracer, Mercy and D.va

    Postie has delivered Slag and green Thrust this morning and then my discounted Hoist and Trailbreaker also showed up -because who doesn't want doubles of figures that are about to get red and blue recolours (possibly) ?

    Now, do I want ToyHax labels for the duplicates?

    Going back to the new boys, Thrust's head can be turned, for those that were worrying that it was locked forward. He can manage some slight left/right movement and he can also look up.

    Slag is awesome, but one of his 'wings' refuses to tab-in in robot mode, will have to investigate if I'm doing something wrong.

    Armadabee Thrust has quickly become one of my favourite voyagers. The transformation was cumbersome at first, but it's actually quite straightforward - legs can be completely transformed before moving any other part. And the alt mode has room for Armada Inferno, which is awesome.

    Quick question, is anyone interested in MP10 before I sling him on eBay?

    He's second hand but are effectively like new as only transformed once.

    Thinking £75 including delivery?

    DM if interested, pics available upon request.

    Edit: MP36 on hold for Insurgent, and MP Star Saber under first right of refusal for SJW

    Those prices seem very low. Are you selling them without their minicons?

    It's a shocking attempt at the accent.

    I don't mind PvP, I mean there's probably a pair of jeans in my wardrobe the same age as him and Hasbro have basically sanctioned him with promo figures and upcoming movie materials access. Best of luck to him.
    ...

    GamesMaster is coming back

    So long as it isn't loaded with reality gimps and Instagram types I'll probably give it a go. It's likely never recapturing the egos and weirdness that we're floating around in the 90s though.

    I could be persuaded to sell mine for the right price. It’ll be a week before I can look for the boxes though.

    Without a giant Sir Patrick Moore head it's doomed to failure...

    If nobody has asked if they can take SS off your hands I would be keen.

    Many thanks.

    Kapow have him for £16.95, admittedly that goes back to virtually his normal price once you add postage - but if you can find a few things to bulk out the order it becomes more of a bargain.

    New Gamesmaster needs Dominik Diamond levels of crappy double entendres and Brian Blessed in the Patrick Moore role because a giant Blessed head shouting advice would be amazing :D 

    Always remember the episode where Frank Bruno was a guest and he took part in a contest with some skinny oik on one of those arcade machines where you put on a boxing glove and punched a pad. The oik wound his arm up in a comedy fashion and took a run up whilst Frank did a short jab and almost knocked the machine over :D

    If I had the funds, I would go for that mp36 at that price. As it stands, it would be a few months before I could budget that in. Need to be responsible.

    Also need to save for haslab starsaber.

    Also need to save for house stuff.


    Stupid responsible adulting stuff.

    The haute tension between Dominik Diamond and Dave 'The Animal" Perry, the mountain of jokes about wagglin' ya joystick and the Dexter Fletcher series. Weird indeed, but I'm glad to hear it's getting a new lick of paint and coming back.

    It's baffling why our legacy broadcasters, for want of a better term, have seen the video game boost and watched Twitch do great business yet still remain obstinate to providing content for gamers. They're leaving money on the table.

    Hmmm....I wish I knew how much I was getting paid on Friday as I'd go for MP-36 myself. :S
