    I cannot justify £1000 for a combiner that I have no real attachment to... Think of the number of holes in the collection that Generations could fill with that? Think that's the plan for now!

    Honestly, I know it’s MP but no combiner should come anywhere close to £500 nevermind £1000. Just madness at that point, and as you say all the holes you could fill in a Generations scale collection.

    At this rate it almost looks like a Takara tactic to boost Haslab Victory Saber to get a host of fans going "F*** THAT! I'll punt on Pulse to try and get Hasbro to mainline a Raiden instead!" and max fund it! :lol 

    Phase 1 of Project: Shins of the (adjacent to the) Wreckers: Mags Factor is done...

    Cobalt blue base coat to have a clear blue top coat in Phase 2, as no single straight blue shade I could find in Mr. Hobby looked quite enough of a match or suitable complimentary to his blue plastic's shade by my eyes.
    Amazing what that bit of shin silhouette alteration does for his leg looks even at this stage though!

    :D  That's the ONLY reason you like me? :( 

    Aww <3

    :lol 

    The fans, definitely. FT are shooting for the moon, but people actually buying it?!

    "How could you forget your own son, Maxy?" :( 

    ...

    So I took a punt on Energon Omega from @joetele but I keep flip flopping on if I like him or not x) I'm just not sure about the colours and the chonky moldness, he doesn't really GO with anyone else I have... on the other hand the way he combines from the two vehicle modes is pretty cool! I dunno. If I do end up passing him on I will of course give you lot first refusal as it feels a bit wrong to go straight to eBay when I bought it from a fellow fan who probably wanted it to go to someone who'd appreciate him :-/
    We shall see!
    Hopefully once my two family birthdays this weekend are over with I can get that other stuff I've been meaning to put up up on eBay like TL Jetfire etc.

    I’m not thinking of Raiden in terms of a team or combiner but more along the lines of A PLETHORA OF CHOMKERS.

    Personally Takara Raiden will be my Bot Mode and Moon Studios is my Combiner mode to scale with the rest. Best of both worlds

    I forgot there was a third party one in the works as well, what are the chances they get a cease and desist order from Takara?

    I heartily concur!
    Say £180-£200 as a Selects Titan or HasLab would be far better value, even if the design was heavily simplified and compromised.

    A very good point, I spend about £3-£400 a year, and would not be surprised if I've finally filled all the larger gaps in my collection by the 40th anniversary of the franchise in 2024!

    Also, go Victory Saber!
    Tier 3 looks to be within spitting distance :)

    I think Hasbro have got MCU iron people down to a fine art:

    Damn, I haven't played a new Metroid game since... Prime 3? That was back in '07. Oof.

    I loved Fusion back in the day, so I'm sure I'll have fun with this one. I just wish Nintendo would release all their old games for new platforms once in a while.

    You hear that Nintendo?! LET ME GIVE YOU MONEY!!!

    Though I'm so engrossed in The Witcher III, I'm not sure I can start another game.

    Fuck it, it's Metroid.

    That would be insidious, evil and damn effective. And if that evil gets me a shield and some micro-dudes.... I might be alright with it.

    Course not, you have that incredible wit and charm! Plus delicious human brains that my crab people comrades will one day claim for the exalted feast.

    I keep thinking of RID Rail Racer, and yeah the individual both modes weren't exactly elegent they were oodles of fun. So I'd take that standard of figure x6, with cool train modes and a bitchin' combiner.

    That moon studio Raiden... what scale is that?

    Now resisting the urge to get all the mpm guys. They look awesome.

    This week's Lower Decks was pretty damn sweet. Definitely the dark horse of current Trek.

    Steel bookcase for the game, a collection of postcards from Metroid through to Dread and this gorgeous, massive hardback collecting together concept art from all of the 2D Metroid games. I'm swerving looking at the Dread section as it's comprehensive and no doubt contains spoilers.
