    Good luck! I suspect you won't be doing much of anything while under its spell. Giving you my best

    G2 Ramjet is stunning - it's amazing the difference the new head/wings make as well. I'll bring him along next time I see you so you can bask in his eye-searing glory!

    Is Sandstorm currently available (as in not sold out everywhere)? I'm actually a little tempted, despite not really being a fan of seekers. (See also: the Rainmaker set. I'm finall succumbing to seeker love...)

    Thanks for posting this David.

    I missed this first time round Omega had them up for PO. I ended up PO’ing these with Bombusbee online store.

    I’m not sure if I will lose my $15 deposit if I cancel those orders and switch to Omega. I have a sneaky suspicion I will.

    Morning peeps.

    Draculas is...a thing that exists an' all. But I prefer my vampire themed Decepticons to be more bot than bat. ROTF Mindwipe is #deskbot of the day.

    Simply amazing pal!
    Every time I see these pics popup on my timeline in someway it makes me want to buy him even more, but I'm just not sure I can bring myself to go through the hassle of selling 2 bots (Siege Mirage and the Bird) plus then I'd need to buy a bracket or something to make his rocket launch actually fit / look more to my taste.

    But again, AMAZING Shots!

    I assume it was a cold shower so you tell me! ;) 
    (I mean if the waters cold enough you need to wear a Russian hat it must be bracing :eek: )

    Funnily enough I looked randomly myself for some reason. Seems like I got the last Tesla and Rig

    Time to cancel Bombusbee orders

    Ooh, not nice. I'm on it, have been for years. Started on regular single hit stuff, now on slow release.

    Everyone is different, but for me it's been incredibly beneficial for pain (but ironically have had to use in a cocktail to get true benefits).

    Having said that, and again everyone's different, I've found it debilitating for fatigue, and also incredibly addictive.

    I actually titrated down a few years ago, to come off them (pre slow release, and having only been on them for a couple of months), and did it properly, going from 2 per day to 1 every 3 days. The first day I was truly off them, I had full on Trainspotting withdrawal!

    I've recently halved my dosage (took 12 months!) but even now, if I am late to take my tablet, or woe betide if I forget it, I still get withdrawal symptoms.

    It's a nasty drug, and I want off it ASAP if I can do it without seeing a terrible increase in pain.

    So my advice is to take them to help your issues, but do your best to only be on them short term. Don't miss a dose, and when you come off them, take your time and reduce slowly and in small incremental steps.

    Wish you all the best with it

    Thank you, Jon.

    I prefer the ambiguity, I think.

    No Goldbug then. Crap. Crap crap crap. Now I'm worried.

    Still, SG Magnus might be intriguing. Either it's finally an excuse to do a Delta Magnus deco or they'll go full skele-face on him.

    The unfortunately-named Blaze Master, as is the second one. He... flies high.

    :lol  Thanks, Ash, forgive me if strangely enough I don't take nettiquette lesson from your good self, I'm afraid I prefer to stick to my idiosyncratic method of explicitly thanking folks for answers to my queries, without negatively dissecting them on a public forum when I could just not.

    Cheers dude. Much appreciated.

    He’s not too shabby. I sold my Siege Mirage but as you know I never planned to buy this. Ha.
