    Weren't Airazor and Tigatron shown to be together in the early episodes of Kingdom? I know everyone likes to ship the ladies, but seems that Tigatron/Airrazor part keeps getting forgotten. To me, the Spider/Falcon pairing was very one sided to a very flirty spider. Although if it was a full series, maybe we would have got a love triangle going between the three of them, with Airazor having to choose who she wanted to be with, BA or Tigatron.

    Doesn't surprise me those folks are getting very uppity about Afterlife seeming to replace their woman power film. Just yet again showing social media is given way too much power and influence in this day and age.

    As for the egon thing, I will only accept that if they bring him back as a silent ghost cameo to perhaps save his grandkids in the final battle or something along those lines. Which I was fully expecting to happen along the lines of anyway. But if they use cgi to bring him back as a living human.... no. Also, that would go against the story (of what we know about it from the trailers anyway. Not looking into the story as I want to not be spoiled).

    My god you f****ing LEGEND!
    I've not seen this in years, didn't realise it would or could be on YouTube in full!

    I can't say I care if it is or isn't.
    I really dislike the film and not for the reasons most do, so I just ignore it. But I'm not going to shout at people or tell them they are wrong for liking it lol

    I lasted a whole 15 hours, but cracked in the end and ordered Iron Monger in the Pulse sale.

    I think it (the UK version) could only be on Youtube due to a slew of rights issues until a recent Limited Collector's Bluray by All The Anime which is now sold out, and at ridiculous prices after market now. Bit gutted I missed it myself.

    I just wish they'd make stuff like this easily available digitally for those of us who are perhaps more legally minded and want to "own" it.
    I'd give my left arm (well maybe not, possibly my right) to own Transformers series legally digitally and many other cartoons / anime's from my childhood, but most are just not available and like you say out of print on physical media so even harder to get.

    I think im gonna get a KO of the Revoltech Psylocke, the original comes with 4 really nice swords that are perfect for other 6" figures, along with a 2nd set of parts or customising and spares if my figure breaks it seems a deal for about £16

    Be aware that it's an actual piece of crap. Mine snapped at the waist after about 5 mins. Then the arm snapped off at the elbow. Also face looks like a blow up doll.
    Weapons are absolutely lovely though.

    Just bought 12 Gnaws, 4 Wreck-Gars and a couple of Slags. Psst, don’t tell @4249david

    I relented and bought Netflix Cheetor, Primal and Rat baby, 25% off isn’t too bad and I was eying them up and kidding myself that I wouldn’t crack!
    Also bought Draculus, why? I don’t know, something to do with wanting to spend more money on anything I suppose.

    I also saw reviews of a KO Revoltech Deadpool and Figuarts Rocket a while back and it was the same.

    We may live in an age where some Transformers KO's improve on official figures but elsewhere is still a case of not getting taken in by the lower price.

    It's OK if it's just accessories you want but the figures themselves are usually pish.

    Yeah i have a few KOs of these import figures, most have broke in some way but only one that make them unposeable

    Mafex (or was it SHF?) Wonder Woman just crumbled to bits, Figma Tracer and Mafex Spidey have one really loose hip ball joint that falls off when you move it...and both Yamaguchi Deadpool and Wolverine had a joint break but I was able to fix both.

    KOs usually look ok as long as you just want them for a decent pose...but to be fair originals can be a pain to pose as well

    As long as you know what to expect when buying them there is nothing wrong with getting a cheap figure

    Just like Star Wars is only 2 and a half good films out of 9, Ghostbusters is only one good film out of three. Don't @ me.

    (Indy is two and a half good films out of 4. Star Trek is 7 good films out of 13. Maybe. I haven't seen Beyond. Transformers is one and a half good films out of 6, although I'm tempted to make it -5 for the "Romeo and Juliet law" scene.)

    Oh sorry, I was winding David up.

    Of course, I will also let you have my PIN number too if you like?
    If I get any of those figures again I will let you know as I just don’t keep the packaging for any of them these days.

    The Ark is a complete missed opportunity, has QC issues in the shoulders and the middle of it's alt, and will be on sale in Argos after Xmas (no joke). I can't help you with Prime!
