    Thank you, but I'm (currently) safe. I've not been in the office for a while. With my current ongoing chemotherapy, they've already stated I can continue to home-work until 2022.

    The last round of chemo starts on the 12th, and 3 weeks later I have what is my final consultation on it. It's all looking good as they told me on Friday that the bloods they took before my 3rd round started had no cancer markers at all in it.

    @4249david Was it yourself looking SS86 Roddy?

    Cheers bud. I happened across this the same evening as it happens. Morgan was a star and combined my orders so I don't pay postage twice.

    I also found Rodimus. Comics have him for 80 delivered, so I figured that Collectable Kingdoms would only come in just below that assuming they kept the PO price on any items they have left once in stock. So I placed my first C&C order...

    Now I just need my MP Rodimus to complete that aspect of the planned display :rolleyes:

    What are they doing in the office if they are waiting for a PCR result? I’m assuming one of the govt. test centres where you go for a reason.

    Maybe your work does random tests or the person was planning on travelling?

    Anyway, it’s another weekday. Will there be another TF drop today?

    Shouldn't we have had another pair of Premium Finish reveals (and pre orders) by now?

    Take out Hatchet and add Blitzwing and Bulkhead and I echo an eerily similar statement.

    I do want a good Bludgeon though :)

    I work for one of those companies that pushes people into working situations the company thinks is right, but every employee knows is wrong. They wanted us back in the office (at 50% capacity) back in June, despite the Scottish Government saying not to.

    The person that got pinged had apparently been feeling grotty, and someone else in their family had been "PINGed" they went for a PCR test, but because they passed a Lateral Flow test thought it was safe to go to work.

    Many thanks.

    Draculus and Rodimus have two things in common:
    1) they have a vaguely Latin-sounding name for no good reason
    2) they seem unnecessary purchases but they are actually lots of fun!

    I'm hoping they go for that "brushed steel" look from the animation and he looks like he's an Elizabethan courtier wearing a ruff made of straw.

    Just this lad, Brian. I couldn't be arsed paying a little more on the prospect of reclaiming some of it by flogging the rest.

    So, 'reg'lar' Tigatron's not coming until January? So, effectively, he's more like wave fucking 5 then, in't he? Gordon Bennet! They don't half make it messy. So, if Jackpot, Terrorsaur, Pipes, Perceptor and Tigger aren't coming until 2022 then I think Selects Galvatron is going to be my last TF of 2021. What a weird year for 'em.

    For anyone still waiting for Rodimus from Sonner, I just got a message from them that "After a few weeks of delays we have been told that Rodimus will be with us next week."
    So fingers crossed.

    My SG Megatron is due today so today's #deskbot has been influenced by it. WfC Megatron.

    Love all the modes but in fairness it's mainly because of how stupidly big his fusion cannon. It is almost literally as tall as he is.

    I like big guns and I cannot be untruthful about it.

    @Rotorstorm I was just about to post this. It was getting cancelled otherwise, there's already one in my BBTS PoL!

    Hello chums, been offline with some fun depression which has resulted in not really being online. I'm OK, I'll get there.

    I'm trying to shift some stuff to raise funds - have a look below. Prices include P&P.

    CW Optimus £20
    Dead Prime £38
    Dirge £12
    Starscream £10
    Blaster (comes with little yellow cat) £9
    Netflix Wheeljack £15
    Nemesis - two swords, rifle and snake but no trailer or POTP cannons £28
    CW Skywarp £18
    Bulkhead £6
    Botropolis - the head has popped off one of the shuttle micromasters - nothing is broken, it just needs popping back in and my eyesight is terrible so I can't do it. £55

    I'm in the same boat, mostly nice to haves from here on out.

    Cheers, thanks for asking. Though it sounds like it might be more about minimum orders required to make opening an account with Hasbro worthwhile.

    E.g. 1 carton of ML or Black series every other wave might not be worth the admin for Hasbro UK to manage.

    Thanks for the response, feel free to send the guide to me in a DM so as not to clog the thread.

    In other news popped in a cheeky Tigatron pre-order today, looking forward to him and Terrosaur.... eventually arriving :)
