    PLA should be fine - it's pretty chemically stable, it's ABS plastic that you need to be careful around acetone.

    Hello Road Ranger and Puffer. Pulled the trigger with Pulse...

    Now lets see if Amazon UK get their exclusive at a cheaper price.

    FYI - Even with postage and import fees its about £1 cheaper to order them from Amazon US.

    Did Amazon UK get any of the previous 'collection' series, like Galactic Odyssey? I don't think they did...

    Deluxe, eh? When Huffer wasn't selling for £16 at Smyths, the poor thing still stank of overpricing.

    Anybody fancy splitting a Nemesis Prime Spoiler box with me ?

    I literally only need the trailer, you can have everything else including the box for £40+ postage ? I'll even throw in an Earthrise Prime trailer if that's your bag !

    Always the way of it.

    Pain in the hole.
    But yeah for ordering these guys. I fully expect to cancel the order and get it from somewhere else, as seems to be my pattern with pulse.

    I didnt notice the motif, but you're right, its in there.
    Yeah, i remember that. Should do a delta magnus armour colour with a black inside prime. That would be sweet.

    So yeah. Loving this nemmy pack. Haven't transformed him yet but i feel i more than got my money's worth, with the extras and battlemaster. Haven't dug out the energon cubes from the wheat yet though. Only real complaint is i wish the trailer had moubting holes for the big guns.

    Also, didn't realise siege was shorter than er.

    Arm kibble? Nah, those are deployable underarm dual cannons, galaxy Convoy style.
    20210927_181903.jpg

    Snake still is only ok as a shield. I feel the trailer door works better.
    20210927_182202.jpg 20210927_182321.jpg 20210927_182333.jpg

    Absolutely adore Giza. So simple, yet so effective. This is NP's sword.

    For when he really needs to bring the pain!
    20210927_182759.jpg

    Unfortunately, all this time meddling has resulted in SG Prime finding his universes Star Saber. The mythical Sword of Prima. And with it, he becomes even more dangerous! For with it fused with SG Vector Prime's Rhesling Sword which he took off the senile old fool when he gutted him, SG Prime now has the ability to slice open portals between dimensions and timelines, a feat he was unable to do with VP's sword earlier due to a temporal lock he placed on it with his final moments. Unfortunately, Primus is strong in the star saber and the fusion has unlocked the power.
    20210927_183235.jpg

    Now he begins his multiversal mission of destroying every optimus prime until only he remains, cannibalising their corpses to enhance his power with each one. Nemesis, being from the future, knows he can't die at the hands of SG, for his master's power flows through him. And he knows this Optimus dies at the hands of galvatron while Unicron is in orbit of cybertron in the distant future.

    Optimus believes his fate is not set. He will avoid the dark timeline and stop nemesis from coming into being. He will stop SG. He will be the last Prime standing. He has to be. No matter the cost.

    I ordered my Barricade/Punch/Counterpunch direct from the US Amazon site along with Shockwave, also got Spinister and Skytread that way. They showed up crazy quick too, less than 10 days from the US shipped. Couldn’t justify most of the Galactic Oddyssey boxes but Barricade and Punch were both pretty great. It’s good the Huffer repaints are at least available here though, even if the mark ups pretty high

    So 4 chapters for golden disk and we've seen listings for terrosaur, tigertron and jackpot which makes the wheeljack silhouette a bit of a mystery unless jackpot is using the wheeljack mould but that seems quite a curve ball

    @Insurgent Give that Roof what for, mate, it deserves getting a total plastering, er, unless the actual proper fix is some different method!
    I believe there has been some speculation that it could potentially be an Energon Terrorcon, like Cruellock, Divebomb, or Battle Ravage, though it is apparently the "Fossilizer" of Legacy so it could be a brand Newb, like the bonelads.
    I'm trying ta remember, there were an awful lot of Casualties that day! :p 
    I think you're right, IIRC all my GOCs came from the US.
    The Surprise UK Amazon stockings were the Blink-&-Miss-'em Coneheads, and Autobot Alliance set.

    @motorthing HOLY HASBRO ACTUALLY REVEALING SOMETHING ACTUALLY BUYABLE, BATMAN!!!

    I wonder does the Puffer/Road Rage Protrusion suggest that they are the only GDC 2-pack...
    Screen Shot 2021-09-27 at 19.30.38.png
    ...or could there be core/s?
    So we know Terrorsaur, do we know the other two yet? I've reached the point now that there's so many leaks/reveals where each new bit of info is pushing an older one out of my brain!

    Evening All,

    A very big thank you to @Apollux . I received MP Star Saber from him today. Nicely packaged up. Contents protected. Quick shipping and delivery. The figure has been well looked after. I’m a very happy punter.

    I just hope that whoever Wheeljack is they sorted out his QC issues, I’ve had to get two of him and two Exhausts just to get a single viable figure between missing windshields, non functional heads, missing shoulders….
