    Built this fantastic little manga only Gundam model this week, the Moon Gundam, so called because of the weapon array on its back.

    It's those weapons that are the reason I'm posting about this as Bandai did an absolutely brilliant job with them.

    I've brought many Gundam models over the years but few have ever really got close to capturing that feel of a scene straight from an animation of a new type pilot summoning their psychic weaponry to their defense as this has.

    Did take quite a while of playing around with it and it's many display options to come up with that but that's how I'll leaving it.

    More pictures:

    On the subject of Magneto it looks as if Curibo will be getting their stock of the MAFEX one next week :) 

    MAFEX Gambit also appears to have been released in Asia as well.

    If I ordered Super 7 Michelangelo from Kapow I could have got him earlier for cheaper. If I’d ordered green Ranger from anywhere else I’d have him now (I’m a week shy of having had him ordered for a year - is that a record?!).

    If I’d ordered my Slags from somewhere else (rather than switching from Pulse) I’d have them now. The joys of the preorder lottery!

    Y: The Last Man review – a stale, male manbaby mess

    What sorta moron admits they weren't in a good mood and looking at their phone during a 'review'?

    'Tomorrow we'll have Piers Morgan reviewing Batwoman. The comments will be switched off to prevent a repeat of the above' (check them out, they rightly rip into that excuse for an article)
    ...

    @Primacron Yup, keeps happening to me too. It's bad when The Entertainer has better stock than dedicated geek e-tailers :eek:

    I like that, was sorely tempted when it first came out but figured he'd look too simplistic among the other toys. But in that pic he looks pretty great. Might earmark as a cheap alternative to Planet-X Coeus in fact!

    You are doing Primus' work.

    I admit to putting 4 days' dispatch on all my ebay sales, as I live deep in the Savage Land (Aberdeenshire) and posting something is nontrivial!

    From those leaked listings...
    - High interest in Deluxe Crankcase, Voyager Blaster and (if the design is nicely G1) TF6 Deluxe Ratchet. Red helmet with white crest, sort of Siege Ironhide height, and they have my sword (money).
    - Medium interest in Core Iguanus & Skullgrin, Voyager Jhaxus, maaaaybe Titan Cybertron Metroplex depending on level of g1ification, TF6 Voyager Soundwave if he looks better than Siege.
    - Low interest, probably depending on income as well as design, in the Stunticons. Interested to see how TF6 Deluxe Brawn looks, too. If he's K Huffer/Pipes size or even ER Cliffjumper size, could be tempted.
    - Bonus interest: Walmart Road Rocket because Spotlight Galvatron, and Walmart Cosmos if he looks better than X-Transbots Klaatu *but* not if I have to jump through hoops for either of them!

    Better keep up the looking for work if I want it all :)  But my 2 or 3 high interest ones should be allowable to myself, one way or another.

    You can get a batch shipped from Aliexpress for the same price as a stamp more or less. We probably both spent more on the electricity required to type our posts than it would cost to buy them!

    A very big thank you to @Popemon for sending out the leg fillers for ER Arcee. Arrived within a day. Top chap.

    I considered putting them on Elita-1 and Lifeline but Arcee that cheeky minx secured them.

    Look at those pins :drool:

    Looks like I’m going to be getting a set for both of Arcee’s mould sisters. :rolleyes:

    If you want a cool alternative and have money to burn, I really like the second chance guy. Kind of over priced I think cos the alt mode i shit. But the bot mode is my favourite of the lot. Edit: its quite a bit cheaper than Planet x Coeus (about $60 I think)

    Getting toy buying withdrawal! But as I have Iron Factory Cyclonus due anytime now from Omegalock I can wait.

    I bought a t-shirt instead in teepublic's sale...

    Thanks for the info, good to know that we may get one of the cassettes at least. It would be a real shame if Hasbro didn’t release the cassettes like they did for Soundwave, but this is Hasbro we’re talking about so….
