    Any of the outstanding (or even already done) sports car Throttlebots (Chase/Roadburn, Searchlight, Freeway), and/or orange & blue recolours with Runabout's head (but with a blank visor replacing the eyes/nose part) as the Ground Soldiers Warrior & Sergeant from the Devastation game. INSTABUYS ALL!

    I wonder if they did make the Throttlebots would the do what they did with Tigertron compared to Cheetor and make Wideload larger than the others ?
    If they did would that be a good thing or a bad thing.

    I'd be fine with wide load being the same size as the rest. But a big bastard would be good too

    I kinda wish they made a more cybertronian appearing rotating for Siege toy moulds and didn't expect people to use the Earthmode ones.
    I think some may exist - but everyone just presumes the plan it make the toy look Earthlike - but for me that is the oppostite - I want the mould to look Cybertronian. Heck one could even argue that pivoting toes might benefit as it could increase accuracy a bit for Crosshairs.

    Went for a sortie to the shop earlier and came back looking a bit like that episode of "Only Fools & Horses" where Rodney comes in soaked and Del says "What's it like out?" to him.

    I did have a coat on to stay dry-ish but was still rocking the shorts and got the obligatory "aren't you cold?" at the shop....I consumed gravy earlier, it warms every fiber of my body :D 

    Rumblings about a new Marvel Legends Toad figure possibly getting a reveal this week. Crossing all digits that haven't been wounded by ferrets as he's a major want for the X-Villains shelf.

    Research on Jaffa Cake donuts has revealed Morrisons have 'em to order on delivery so I'll see if the Ilkeston branch has some in.

    Sure, can you shoot me a PM so I remember who wanted it? My memory is terrible these days.


    I think they'll be £199 posted again, minus any reward points people have to cash in etc.



    Thank you! I've been working on it tonight cause there was a glitch (not Tarn) but it's fixed now so it'll be running as of tomorrow for people.

    "I work for Optimus Prime!"
    "Really? You saved me from Scorponok's little rebellion, nursed me back to health, then delivered me here, the one place Scorponok can't touch me! Now, where would you say your loyalties lie, Counterpunch?"

    - The Transformers S04E10: 'The Autobot Who Came In From The Cold' (3/5)

    That's fair. It's one of the reasons I get Starscream fatigue so quickly, that and a general aversion to getting the same character twice. Thundercracker can hopefully bring some more bold colours to the mould. But I have to say, I'm a little bored with seeing the same characters being rehashed in every line, so 'Thrust' was a breath of fresh air.

    Incidentally, I rewatched the Cybertron scene to see if I could spot Thrust at all, and as soon as I was actually paying attention to the seekers in each shot it became obvious that there was very little shot-to-shot-continuity with them! Thundercracker and Thrust appear all over the place, with no regard to where they were a half-second ago. I wonder if adding T-crax to the SS line along with Thrust is just leaning into the joke?



    Also, way to go lads, you flew right above the tower, then fired missiles that went down and hit... the base of the tower. Can't help but think you could have been more efficient about this.

    Cheers, Kev!

    Right. It's the scene where Laserbeak plays back what he recorded.

    Yeah, I get that. It's always annoying that we have to go through '84 Seekers before we're allowed to get the more interesting (to me) Coneheads. It probably doesn't help that Thundercracker and Skywarp were for 30 years big personality vacuums. Seriously, god bless Jon Barber. If anyone ever released a version of Thundercracker that came with his wife and dog I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    If Hasbro started releasing any figures with compatible humans they'd have my money without question. And yes, you said it Buster: give T-crax his doggy.
