    Well that was a waste of bandwidth.

    Nowt I needed (as much as you can need plastic robits). So I bought a set of Japanese Industry Standard precision screwdrivers and a Master Chief figure from Amazon.

    Was briefly pondering Sandstorm but I have the G2 Ramjet version so I'm good. Guess this bonus cash will pay for SG Megatron and Starscream from Pulse...eventually.

    I've given up trying couldn't get past the star wars stuff without the website crashing. I know they get a lot of stick but they don't do themselves favours by making sarcy comments to people.

    It is a bit fanficcy. All maximals and predacons were killed by tigatron who went savage and orange and is being manipulated by the only other survivor. But... you said tigatron was the only survivor?

    Tigatron looks great. If he was 30, I'd go for him to join the Beasts Of Burden crew. But 35 is too much a mental block to justify for a non show character when I'm getting the show version anyway.

    New wheels on ratchet. They make a world of difference.

    I’m away with work and all sorts is happening.

    This. Something about a cheap Huffer. And two more Golden Disc packs.

    God dammit.

    @Siege Fan et al did I miss the launch of the new (non ks veraion) he-man and the masters of the universe animation on netflix and the discussion in here about it?

    Just started watching it, much like the new she-ra it's more fun and watchable.

    Nope, it sez they were killed by the Quantum Surge, not Mutant Tigatron. The initial phrasing is clunky but it's clearly an attempt to make the last paragraph a more suspenseful surprise reveal with it's "But wait!".

    Not as much good stuff as hoped although the centurion drone pack was welcome.

    As predicted Earthrise Scorponok was indeed listed.

    Do I don't I....

    I listed a Centurion Drone pack on ebay for £50 opening bid back in Jan/Feb and it sold for about £180. Given it was a Global Shipping Program sale I imagine the shipping and import duty would have been a lot for the buyer as well. Compared to that £50 is a bargain.

    Vaguly depressing to see stuff I paid full price for now going for 3/4 or 1/2 what I paid.

    That's the roll of the dice though, you can never predict what will sell like hot cakes and what will gather dust.

    gg IDT. The only item I want is their SSbee Starscream, but I strongly suspect it will be on clearance for under 25 GBP at some point.

    I can ask my girlfriend if she wants to sell hers. Any games you're looking for?

    Yup, a bunch of us here have watched it now. It drags a bit because Netflix but overall it's a far better start than Revelation. And at least it's not literally deathly serious! I do wish they'd given it a dedicated title though as it's even difficult to Google!

    It's a great marketing strategy, I was so pleased to actually view the sales stuff I probably ordered a few bits I'm not bothered about because I could.
