    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.

    Yessss. I was curbing my enthusiasm until I'd read reviews, but now I can't wait to get some headphones on and enjoy some eerie isolation sci fi.

    Edit: Just bought on eBay with 20% off code FALL20. Came to 37 quid.

    Kraid, meet boot.

    Didn’t take him long to remember which side he’s on.

    Anyone got a hint of where Gen Selects Galvatron is available for pre-order? Don't know why I didn't pre-order him when he became available (think I was waiting for pay day, then forgot) he's sold out at the usual places (kapow, ID, Pulse)

    I'm assuming most places will have him available when he becomes in stock after pre-orders go out but I'd rather put an order in if I can.

    Also has Artfire been pushed back?

    Those two figures are all I have on my radar at the moment I think until next year (probably Tigatron and Terrorsaur even though I took down my BW display...)

    Transformers Generations Selects War for Cybertron Galvatron - Leader kingdom Galvatron

    Or

    Robot Recruits

    I haven't bought from either before but plenty here have, so I'll let them advise!

    I'm guessing that the trainbots are so expensive because Takara anticipate that they've got a more niche appeal?

    But fear not those who have balked. Just sit back and enjoy the show when the inevitable quality control issues somehow surprise everyone.

    Niche appeal? I think you mean corporate greed. Then again, there was apparently a market for Kiss Players once upon a time sooooooo

    My first MP was MP-8, he’s now my only MP and unless we get MP Black Shadow & Magnificus (we won’t get the other Dinos, Takara have missed a trick so badly their pimp died) he can be the last too. It’s already getting close to the point where the ridiculously-rising prices for ever-diminishing plastic mean I’ll have to cherry-pick CHUG, nevermind anything else. Current plan is to beast it while the beasting’s good, but am increasingly resenting the clear-plastic barely-deluxe scout-size carbots.

    There still is, but they have to bribe the guards to get parcels so it’s a bit slow nowadays....
