I also have a spare matrix, so think it’s time to see who can carry such a burden… Hopefully I’ll get to tinker with Hotlink, but that’s a fine looking robot even just in package.

    Yeah, that's exactly what I'm talking about. You get similar things in other fandoms. I haven't liked Chibnall's seasons as Doctor Who showrunner, but you can't have a decent conversation about that without one side going "Chibnall has RUINED Doctor Who forever with his wokeness and women and wokeness and my childhood has been DESTROYED" and the other side going "you just HATE women and want all Doctors to be white men forever!!!"

    It's... very tiring.

    That appears to be the SS86 version, given the solid gold neck, wrist gaps and Wheelie on his shoulder.

    I can take the ultra boyish Tom Holland as Nathan drake, he's got the charm. But fucking marky Mark as sully? Ye what?!

    Ancient barrister Ian McElhinney selmy or dam Sam elliot...

    Pure tune.

    My uncle was a stripper. Wall paper, paint, his clothes. He was an erotic decorator.

    Yes. Yes. This pleases me greatly. Nice work bro.

    Yup, I am way choosier with Lego now than I've ever been. Partly because of the price (biggest toyline in the world even though the stuff gets almost immediately discounted by necessity), but mostly because the TFs hurt my wallet like nothing else!

    I understand us transformers fans aren't the brightest, but I never expected us to be that dumb.

    Well, maybe. OK yeah there's definitely people stupid enough

    Someone will boxswap and return an FE Bulk to WalMart in Legacy box. Always someone who thinks new equals better.

    All this talk of FE Bulkhead made me want to find me copy, which then led to me wanting to find my FE Megatron, which then led to me remembering I'd lost his fusion cannon, which...

    Anyway, long story short, I've just ordered ApC Toys version of Megatron and MMCs version of Thunderclash from RobotToyBase. I'm really pleased with getting Thunderclash as I'm sure I've looked before and not been able to find him anywhere. Which I guess is no surprise, what with him being the most awesome Autobot who's ever lived.

    Shattered Glass Starscream mini review...

    First off I don't have the comic, so you'll just have to pretend I'm one of those factory sample dudes :p 

    I think he looks amazing anyway, but the swords immediately put him into must purchase territory, even at £37. Though that is still an inexcusable ripoff. The red, white and blue look definitely eases the pain though...

    One thing to note is the swords are painted translucent plastic and tight in his hands, so do be careful.

    We're all well-used to this mold by now, so there isn't much more to say other than it's a shame I personally don't like the colours on the alt mode.

    Looks amazing in the photo box but like a flying Ratchet out of it :confused:

    I'd argue you need Pretty Fly For A White Guy whatever, but I couldn't honestly say he isn't laughably expensive or that the alt won't hurt your eyes. Suspect some small paint detailing would have sorted that though.

    Anyway, the main takeaway is that he's a super-posable swordsman. Like your real dad.

    Joel Schumacher will spin if it doesn't.

    Yeah, people will insist on giving kids Lego before they're old enough to understand it's more fun for adults :D
