    18,630 backers, what are the chances we get the shield and Micromasters? I think at this point if we don’t I’ll be a bit miffed.

    Thanks to Shabaz's alacrity, experiments proceeded. Sadly peacock green had no effect on Paleotrex II, as I was hoping to do him in a Castle Greyskull homage deco BUT the brown dipping I gave Ractonite worked in mere SECONDS to give him this gorgeous museum piece patina (also a suitably warmer tone for a Maximal good guy)...

    So I did it to the pernicious Paleotrex too, and it also worked on him!

    I did want to do him as a moss-covered skeleton with an overall "Green Knight" theme which I may still do with some paint apps, thinking about re-naming him Vertrex in a pun that's also a nod to our surreal scientist superposter. :lol 

    And MASKromastering begins with a baby step...

    Rhino what I'm doing!

    Good work as usual! :D  Enormously flattered to share a pun with a skeleton dinosaur moss-man, seasonally appropriate too! :) 

    Today I ventured forth from Yonderville, suburb of the City on the Cold Shore, and as if by accident have returned home with Beasts. Reissue Beasts to be precise. Tickled with them overall, especially Cheetor (who made me laugh out loud) and nifty-new-colours Megs; minor reservations about Primal due to mold flash and the irritations intrinsic to the mold but I’ve been after one in his original deco for a while, and Rattrap is more fun than I anticipated (and has the best grrrrrrimace in pet-mode). :) :D :cool:

    After leaving Cyberverse Sludge and Snarl in the basket on Amazon I finally pulled the trigger and ordered them.
    Really hope I can get the Swoop, Slug and Grimlock to go with them.
    Hopefully going to the wrestling tomorrow to catch Will Osprey and the Revolution Pro Wrestling roster.

    Ectotron doesn't fit in the trailer but looks good coming out of it. Will try transforming it tomorrow.

    With the exception of phantasm, insidious and frankenhooker I've actually watched those all in the last few months.

    Frankenhooker? Dare I ask?

    Nice paint jobs dude. Rhino looks well. Fossil guys... even better

    I'm hoping it massively jumps and we get something extra. Purely going from galactus getting a additional figure

    Looks good like that I’d say! And he’s a chap who enjoys his wardrobe, every deco full of snap and pop. :)

    Loving these shots, but you are starting to make me wobble. Ectotron is one I've been on the fence with, I would like it, but at the same time, been resisting it. Seeing him with MP10G is really weakening that.


    Discovered a film called Jurrasic Shark 2: The Aquapalypse. Watch the trailer. Not the movie, just the trailer for it's sheer awefulness. It's somehow worse than Velocipastor.


    Potp Dino's are rather cute, aren't they? Got slag and Snarl chilling out with me at the moment, thanks to @Apollux and his lovely deals. Just need to find a cheap grimlock and they can go all Volcanicus until I get round to turning them into the Dino Force.

    Dug out all my junkion bods, bodies all 10 present and accounted for just need to dye/paint wastoid gamma (the last groove) and then I'm waiting on 2 chests for junkyard/scrapheap and head/chests for hazmat and recycle

    Finished off rubbish left today and painted scrapheap's head right he just needs his chest now.

    For my (stupidly unlikely) dream would be the other two rescue members. But if not I'd take more micromasters or one of the weaponisers redone

    GTA remaster sounds cool, I'd like it if they could link the games together somehow, perhaps with the airport's so you can move between the three cities at will.

    It's the head from Deluxe Transformers Adventure TAV Bloody Knockout! ;) 
    Funnily, the TAV BK comes in what appear to be Bluestreak/Silverstreak colours?
    Hmm..? :)

    Absolutely fantastic game that’s flown under the radar for years - the Collins missions were great, and you could buy buildings / destroy competitors buildings if I remember correctly?

    And of course, it had a great soundtrack too. Talking about it makes me want to get a PS2 if I’m being honest!!

    This.

    Silver Panther Sex Mask is definitely the way to go.
