    Three Youtubers in a south London flat together - hijinks ensue.

    Only being BBC they wouldn't be allowed to namedrop Youtube. It'd just be "on the internet".

    Huh. He fits in better than I'd have expected.

    Nemesis, do you think he might do the maiden Japan box heads for the Universe inferno and grapple figures?

    you know, at first i feared that Pipes would've just been a blue Huffer (knowing Hasbro) but i have to say that i'm positively surprised that Hasbro actually made an effort to change the chest detail and the head and to also add a swivel that allows the cab to turn on the back. Still, i would've liked it even more if the cab itself had a different front like the original Pipes had

    Cool. No rush on it, just curious. I found a pair of the full kits on a website for a tenner each, but then shipping is something like 60 dollars so I never pulled the trigger. It's only really one solitary head I'm after, I'm fine with the rest of my rts junkions having the stock body frames.

    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"

    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!

    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:
