    Seriously though, if you're collecting toon figures, it's gotta be the holy scale chart.

    MP52 is pretty much perfect in size, although Shockwave is actually a touch too small.

    You can probably tell by The presence of Magic Square Prime and The repaint I've done on Megatron and Ratchet that I ain't collecting toon or slave any scale chart ;)

    Dunno what that is but I love it.

    This is the sort of 'I'll check to be sure' feeling I get when wiring a plug or socket :oops:

    Thank you for your replies.

    My son does suffer a little bit with hay fever and he has recently lost one of the top front teeth with the other one close to departing. I do wonder if a combo of that has caused sinus matters /increase amount of phlegm that is trickling down into his throat that has caused him to suffer an irritating cough.

    He hasn’t presented with any other covid symptoms so hopefully he gets the all clear.

    If you find yourself with the movie Eternals Sercei, I'd be interested. Want one to make a Quintessa, since they're both played by Gemma Chan.

    That's a great looking display you have there.

    The trailer did nothing for me. But it finally popped up in recommended yesterday and I watched the scene preview thingy it does. It was the bit where Skeletor is going on about the age of greyskull is over and begins the age of skeletor (I'm guessing it was his initial skeletor reveal by how they did it). That preview got me interested enough to give the show a chance.

    Once upon a time a finnish director made a film about a fictional band called Leningrad cowboys that tried to get a break in America. Think Spinal Tap but a few factors stranger.

    This fictional band decided it wasnt enough to be fictional and kept going for several years after the movie, holding concerts and releasing records decades afterwards.

    This video is from a concert in Finland just a few years after the Berlin wall fell where the SOMEHOW managed to get the Red army choir, yes its the actual red army choir of the soviet military, in concert mixing russian traditional songs and american rockabilly. Its absolutely insane and absolutely awseome.

    In case anyone hasn't seen it, there's a 20% off voucher on eBay that works at Hasbro's shop

    It's a little dragged out but watch it at your own pace and I think you'll like it.

    That's the sort of madness the world needs more of.

    Every time I go to their shop page it sends me to the mobile app which doesn't show anything, even though the site obviously does.

    PCR test results are usually within 24 hours still.

    Silver Legs, ShowZ, and need to see about customs. £65 with a currency fee free card (I got a slightly bigger discount on shipping as ordered with DS Starscream).

    You're too kind. With any luck(?) you'll be able to hear Virtual Dave and I wang on about it and other displays in a couple of weeks or so... Provided I get my arse in gear and do the editing.
