    Of all the versions of those two moulds I've got, the SG Prime and Ratchet ended up the best QC (in fact, all of the gen selects have been good bar the vehicon and breakdown set) so I had high hopes. Fingers crossed SG Megs the Second will be better...

    Yeah, that appears to be what happened. Other two parcels arrived separately.

    Brilliant, cheers!

    My OP was a disaster, excess plastic and paint in far too many places including his head.

    Any of the 40k Mcfarlane figs you ordered with Sonners available to you via Comics / IDT / Kapow in their sales? Might be worth a consideration.

    I’ve just got that Space Marine Lieutenant in limbo with them. I don’t think they are going to get it in.

    That doesn’t bode well. I’ve waited this long so I will see out this week and start the refund process over the course of next week.

    Thanks for confirming they are sending a generic response rather than tailored to my enquiry.

    Hope everyone's good.

    Had an anxious couple of days. Had a call from the care home, my aunt suddenly gasping for air. She went off in an ambulance. Doctor reckons pneumonia, from food going down the wrong way. This has happened a few times as she has trouble swallowing due to her parkinsons. She's discharged within a few hours without treatment, but doctor has prescribed some anti-biotics tablets... but she can't swallow solids as she has trouble swallowing due to her parkinsons. Now its gonna take a day to get a liquid form, so in the mean time the carers are bricking themselves that she may well end up back in hospital worse than she was yesterday. I reckon the hospital must be under a lot of pressure, trying to keep beds free. Cos they obviously didn't read her notes and in the past they've kept her in for observations.

    Right, robots! With a heavy heart I think I'm gonna sell LG Black Convoy. As beautiful as she is T_T I'm looking for £50 inc delivery & fees. No box or instructions, but from what I can tell the figure is immaculate.

    Gworks has the Nonnef upgrade set with a choice of horn options but also a toy homage head as well as the sword which may be redundant for you?

    Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the hit new gameshow "Oh, SH*T! IT'S SHABAZ!!!" because, yes, my Pulse Sale Splurge is out there today?! When I saw it was listed as "expected tomorrow" this morning, I though I'd gotten away with it BUT, oh, SH*T - It's Shabaz!!!
    Currently hoping I haven't missed him, as tracking does not say "Delivered", and he's still out there mid-speedrun...

    Backlog of 50,000 Frieght Containers in Felixstowe alone..........I wonder if my RK Slaug is still in one of them? We could be looking at some serious hold-ups on stuff by year's end.

    And MP Raiden may be CW Combiner sized? At £1K over here that's going to be a spicy sell.

    Damn. A few months back I said CHUG style at MP prices and a few weeks ago I joked in the G1 appreciation thread that they'd cost more than I paid for my vintage set.

    I was kidding TakaraTomy. I was kidding.

    I do. The G supposedly stands for Giant (as well as Gattai and Great), so I think it's false advertising if nothing else!

    Raiden will be the same height as MP Ultra Magnus, smaller than CW/UW Devy, etc. Unless they come with multiple mini figs, there's no way this can be described as giant in CHUG, let alone MP.

    I've officially written off official combiners for MP now.
