    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.

    SS86 Slug working out to about £60 on Amazon USA for those of you who were as slow as I was….:confused: 

    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!

    Are Hasbro - who now have their OWN Webstore - really going to flub the last knockings of Kingdom this badly?

    Amazon who "lost" my Prowl/Hide pack will now get dibs on the fucking version of Tigertron I actually want?!!!

    Why do you do this Universe?

    Don’t get me wrong, he’s shown as “in stock soon”, but he’s orderable at least….

    I don’t have the best track record with Amazon having been mucked around by them on more than one occasion so we’ll see!

    Seems to be something wrong with Chrome - I tried removing it and reinstalling it and even set the date back on my computer, deleted some caches - tried turning all the add ons off, deleting the secure licenses, removing all cookies for that site and the anti-virus and firewalls nothing fixes it.

    I tried it on other browers all the Chromium based ones have the same error and Firefox says the site is fine, and when I look at the certificates on Chrome it says they are valid - but it keeps telling me the time is wrong. (I don't have any virus) - there is supposedly some hijacking script that can mess up your time and date validation - but I can't see how to know if I am effected by that.

    So it looks Like I can use the Hasbro Pulse and Indemand sites but only on Firefox now - which is "weird" to say the least. everything else is working perfectly fine... which is why I can't help but wonder if it's something very specific to a client service those particular sites use.

    But I think I reached the limits of my computer knowledge on this one.

    I saw this also :( 
    Here's hoping he pops up on Pulse like others have done or maybe IDT get some import stock.
    I can't not buy him, but don't want to be paying Conehead seekers price

    With hindsight, they had to, though it was a bizarre move and so weirdly vicious by their standards (implying she didn't care about the cinemas and was greedy). Even apart from pissing off the biggest female star in the current sociopolitical climate, longterm a firm like Disney was gonna have to call on her in future somehow.

    I wonder if the upcoming multiple Marvel writer lawsuits didn't help along with Disney+ supposedly not growing at the pace they need. The Mandalorian furore did a number on theirs by all accounts and it's not like Star Wars has it's historic lustre right now.

    Shambles was the real star of the trilogy and still doesn't have a figure.

    Honestly Yodel might be the safest part of the whole Pulse transaction :oops: 

    The camera is glorious.

    The Inferno mold is the only one I have a real problem with for scale, it's miniscule! :eek: 

    Brian, that was my exact reaction! All I can wonder is did they mix it up with the GD repaint, but then the latter half of Kingdom is making less sense than a Japanese VCR manual.
