    Christ, I hope Pulse review their release dates for Jackpot and Terrorsaur too. March seems a bit...much?

    Sorry to say I've already cancelled the duplicate order.

    Oooh no! Anything that you can highlight? Sorry asking a lot of questions. Didn't get much sleep and have to work as well. Limited brain capacity.

    I think they have changed how often you have to pay for the service now.
    I believe doubled the price if not more from what I read in a FB group.

    Thanks! Ahhhh the price did double? I thought it might have but I couldn't remember. Hmmm yes makes it more difficult to be viable.

    Sorry the only one I saw on Amazon UK was Jackpot and he's 'out of stock' now.

    Annnnddd gone... Ah well. Were these guys on the Ever Given or something? I absolutely LOVE how a subsidiary of Hasbro has no idea what's coming until suddenly POW! there it is.

    OK, if this was a COSPLAY at TFNation and funky transformation was achieved by the cosplayer leaning forward and tucking their hands by their hips: AWESOME.
    On a plastic toy.... it's a guy COSPLAYING as a Pterosaur! Come on! Glad a lot of you guys are loving it.

    He was so utterly crucial to the Siege story line though...! (Wasn't he?) Maybe people are customising him into a statue?

    OK, that makes Arcee look INCREDIBLY sexy which means I probably have some issues to work out.

    Alright hear me out: Eva Green voices Arcee in Rise of the Beasts... That would cause me so much confusion!

    I’ve found In Demand pretty solid, only had one order where things have been in stock but not got them (and I’m chasing that up now). Hasbro Pulse is a pretty cool concept though, though my local yodel delivery is very hit and miss so that’s a slight concern…

    Quoted for truth and also to let you know I've been pulling/pestering for him too.

    In other news, all my slots are filled (Ooo-er!) For HasLab Victory Saber, thanks to @Decepticreeps100

    Bunged in my order for Terrorsaur, glad most people seem happy with him. Not bad for a retool in my opinion :)

    Yus. She definitely could have slide into that role with ease. But I do enjoy goth blanchett's turn as Hela.

    I'm sure there is a suitable Marvel character still on the shelf that she could play. Sage from X-men maybe?

    Thus is the glory of gravy!!


    I remember this last year with the ER Galactic Odyssey guys, the dates would be moved forward and back. But I'm hopeful that Jackpot does land from Xmas.

    Today, life is good.

    Yeah! More Black Widow please.

    Scrapface had a pretty decent paint scheme, so the people like me that had one and liked it have probably all bought two more so that they can now have a Scrapface camera.

    I still have some Road Rages to shift on too, I may have over estimated her availability here, hit me up :)

    Fire buddies are back together thanks to some friendly social media folk.
    They look awesome as a team:

    Not entirely sure they scale in alt mode though? Thoughts?

    I'm low-key hoping that if toy colours mainframe doesn't pop up with a titan ark repaint, that Hasbro will say fuck it and sell him on his own as a selects figure in toy colours.

    It's been said before (by myself), but your doing Primus' work Apollux!
