    I'll take that as a highly repressed, "Thanks for the suggestion."

    EDIT:
    I'd wager these will be too pricey for you but nevertheless for reference:

    Getting increasingly fed up with waiting for IDT to send me the Rainmakers, which, possibly/probably is no fault of theirs, as now being suggested as a November release?
    A few more days and it'll be 6 months since I paid in full (insert Eric B & Rakim video)! Gonna cancel that pre-order, get pay back y'all, then order once Hasbro decide to make regular stock available. :( 
    Something, something, pennies worth of interest, something! o_O  #importstock

    Sup guys, not been posting much but those are some juicy leaks. Count me in for beasties, prime bulkhead and kickback. I'm sure I'll pick up others.

    Putting breakdown in wave four is a recipe for disaster, surely?

    The reason I've not been posting much is I've fallen down the 40k rabbit hole again and this time I've been charmed by the spooky space terminators. I decided to add a bit of purple for that Transmetal Tarantulas vibe.

    Evening!
    That SS86 Grimlock (that I was talking about the other day) has arrived - next door, who are not in and are still yet to return. I hope they haven’t gone away for a holiday or something lol!
    Got Friday off, going to hit a couple of Smyth’s and see what I can pick up too!

    I didn't mean to buy this toy. It must have happened when I was drunk because I genuinely have no recollection of ordering the set and was mystified when a shipping notice for it appeared in my emails. At some point in the past I must have preordered it and then deleted the evidence. Who knows.

    But I've gone from not liking it at all to not minding it after taking some photos (gallery link in my sig).

    Finally found the Alt Swindle head for my OS KO BB however, I've hit a bit of a stumbling block as the neck joint isn't quite long enough for the noggin' to clear which means that he's constantly looking upwards.

    I can't mod the head as I'd be taking too much of it away so I'll have to find something to cannibalise for a larger ball joint and mod a new joint into place. That should be fun as I've never done anything like that before!

    Here's a picture of him with a blob of blu-tak holding it in place. It doesn't look too shabby at all:

    His ankles really do need some floor polish on them as he cannot stand up for toffee.

    From Space Dad to Space Bad. Amazing what a simple deco change can do to a character.

    I just received my Evac from Toy-fu today.
    It's truly marvelous, one of the most underrated voyagers ever made. Three successful gimmicks, two excellent modes, a fun transformation, and technically it's a Prime.

    Not gonna lie though, I'm liking that stand a lot more with the yellow v logo. Still meh on it, but now its a oooooh meh.

    Saved that. They'll be perfect to add onto my dinoforce for their nose spikes.

    A little lambkin, gamboling in a dewy meadow.

    It ate the pot noodles.

    Also there seems to have been a list of upcoming TFs leaked? Been super-busy and missed the excitement! Am just assuming I'll buy all the G1CHUG, especially if it's Magnificus. Plus Knock-Out. Maybe.

    Moving into new place tomorrow so have to hit the sack. Happy nightdreams, Thredizens!

    Yeah, definitely looks more suitably premium now, which just emphasises how daft the grey version was for a tier drop, I mean at least two tone shade it to hint at the final varied colours, right?
