    * = Yeah, I know the shot's reversed but you try getting a Sh!tcam to focus on the fluid-immersed text of the WORLD'S SMALLEST MAGIC EIGHTBALL!!! (Absolutely worth the sick squid price IMHO!)

    Greetings Thredizens! Currently in another hotel room in another cold and faraway city. With new toy joy. It’s a pretty good feeling I do declare.

    Also Kapow uncancelled my Sandstorm after I wrote explaining what had happened. Hurrah! Now he can fight helicopter buggyman over the name, just like Divebomb. Then fight Divebomb. Whoever wins gets to be called Divestorm, loser gets renamed Sandswoop and has to send an application form to Grimlock.

    The Ark tried scanning for the dominant life form both times - it got it right with the dinos but got confused and scanned vehicles and machinery later.

    Now explain how it scanned dinos that weren't even around in the same epoch, also how did it think cassette tapes were a dominant form of life but humans weren't...

    Fucking awesome.

    We love Little Shop Of Horrors at Casa Napalm and have seen various stage productions of it over the years.

    You'll know this, but others might not, that the Director's Cut has the original kaiju esque ending to the movie. Blew my daughter's mind when we watched it last month :lol

    Beast Hunters Cindersaur. Target exclusive two-pack with Smokescreen, not sure which shop had him over here. There was a Blot recolour (as "Blight") and one of Predaking too. :) 

    That mold did get recoloured a few times for AOE/TLK. I have all of them.... :rolleyes: 

    Edit: Ninja'd by @MyTea Boc ! :D

    I always thought the Ark took into account the role and function of the Autobot/Decepticon it was scanning for which is why the seekers were F-15’s and then Ratchet was an ambulance. I’m stumped on why it thought Soundwave should be a cassette player but then again what else could he really have been? I’d have said surveillance van of some kind but let’s remember to suspend our disbelief ;)

    I mean, technically it wouldn’t really know considering how alien Earth was to Cybertornians ;)  then again why didn’t it scan Megatron and choose a tank, it’s literally a mobile gun :rolleyes:

    PvP would be so much better if he scripted his reviews, he is just so cringey most of the time and just makes up sentences that dont make sense

    I like his format since it’s usually easy to see what he’s showing, but man it’s like he reads from a thesaurus. Just tell us about the figure :rolleyes:

    Cool! Forgot that the IDW comics were being translated into French.
    I wonder are there any other languages that these were translated into (other than English, Polish, Japanese and French).
