    Bought Zeta Superion today. Help me god.

    I have Zeta Bruticus coming in December too when the new re-release comes out.

    Currently using UW Devy as my MP Devy but now with these Zeta and XTB combiners I have, he really doesn't cut the mustard. Toyworlds Devy is looking a bit out of fashion now however I feel. I'm hoping we get a more 3P Toon Devy soon

    Trying not to be too completist with these, as there’s a few insanely priced box sets of Micromasters I’d love to have but not at insane prices. These arrived via Gear4Geeks, whose customer service is crazy good, along with a few random stocking fillers. Can finish the Race Car patrol (I think) and then got the others to possibly repaint into slightly different figures, or just to improve the look

    That is the best place to put fruit. (Matron.) Kazoo Enterprise buzzes as it flies! When in atmospheres anyway. :) 

    Found this pic on the Interweb, no idea who took it:

    I like it! :) 

    Also Masterverse Stinkor is the first figure from that line I've wanted:

    What a stinker, eh? :cool:

    Amazon.com customer service chat is now an automated bot that will take you in circles around the problem.
    My Cyberverse Dinobots arrived earlier and They were loose in the box with no packaging protection.
    It’s a miracle Sludge is okay as he’s got no plastic blister but poor Snarl looks like the blister was folded in half to fit in the box.
    Will try again tomorrow when I’m in a better mood.

    Ouch! :(  Hope you can get some satisfaction from them. I contacted them about my Micromaster set that arrived with the toy box torn open inside the shipping box, but they never got back to me. :(

    I was thinking about the possibility of a small sub-line of Gi Joe Transformers and what crossed my mind is they could easily to Select series takes on them too - with Night Attack or other decos for Cobra and Tiger Force for Gi Joe.
    I think Brown Box Gi Joe Transformers Tigerforce toy as bonus releases would be really nice.

    A couple of them being MASK decos is a nice thing about them. (Stinger and Hurricane) - I'd rather like a Botopolis if anyone is selling one.

    I like the colours on the Nemesis-looking one very much but my interest is entirely dependent on final price.

    Hnnnnnngh. Fingers crossed I can find and afford a Megs spoiler box on payday :S

    I have a custom in mind for this geezer but there's no fucking way I'd pay £35 for him. I'd even balk at paying staff discount prices if he turned up at FP tbh.

    There's something about this Laserbeak that I really like, but there's also something about it that I just don't like at all. :S

    I know a lot of people really didn't like this guy when he came out but I still keep hoping I'll see him and big Prime for a reasonable enough price for me to buy 'em.

    I got RED Starscream for nothing and I STILL feel ripped off.

    If they DID do a pinless classic Spidey I'd want him in lighter colours - not as light as this, but at least a couple of shades lighter than what we got DAGNABBIT.

    See that Roboskull is absolutely SMASHING its stretch goals! Absolutely desperate to get onto this one.

    At least last year when Dirge and Ramjet arrived all beat to hell I got to “chat” to a person who sorted it out almost immediately.
    It’s to late at night/early in the morning for this.

    That iron fist is a great wee fig.
    I would read that book cover to cover.

    My Crankcase had one of its leg pegs explode. Still a damn fine figure.

    Nice.

    Fuck. Sorry to hear that mate. Hope the chat with your wife goes well tomorrow.

    Need a link to this gear man, need to direct folks to it for Xmas gifts :p 

    I love that movie rifle.

    That is a doc I can jam with

    Both half of that figure are great, they just never quite felt like they belonged on the same figure to me. You've made it look very decent though!

    My Snarl wasn’t in great condition, but at least it wasn’t replaced by herbal medicine like Sludge!

    I paid £26 for Skelegod and he isn't even worth that. He'll be 20 soon enough and 15 not long after, he's already on Bargain Max.

    Yeah, current pinless Spidey definitely needs good lighting!

    I make that 5:30pm on Friday, UK time - Wallet fire extinguishers, on standby.

    Only 40 minutes long though, which is a big worry! The Hall of Fame stuff will probably take up a good 15-20 minutes of the time. So I'm starting to doubt that we are going to see many new figures. :(
