    I stand corrected. I’ve only looked at Transformers.

    Gotta admit while Classified Storm Shadow is great I am disappointed there is no Baroness, I would have thought that would be an easy money maker

    Hmmm, got the previous version of this...

    Screenshot_20211023-203721_Chrome.jpg

    Missed out on this one though

    Might get Cap...

    Jesus, these are especially lazy

    Might be interested in Hulk and Toad but all of this is proving my half-assed theory they're running out of notables and takes most folks would want.

    That sobering Saturday night realisation that you have bought too much stuff out of impulse last year. Where do I even start!

    Thank you Joe, you're a star! ;) 

    So them Pulse reveals! I'm down for all of the Legacy TF's, even Arcee who looks the worst IMO. :p 
    Flamewar when? :cool: 

    Also for the folk who have been trying to pry apart the air intakes/nocecone/shoulder pauldrons of the Siege Starscream mould, I've taken one for the team! o_O 
    There is a short round post at each end of the intake which appear to be glued in - prying at each end with a small flat screwdriver, running it carefully into and down each side join has caused the posts to snap, releasing the two pieces from each other. :eek: 
    Definitely not my best work but it's an option now for a custom idea I have. :)

    I honestly can't remember but it was possibly one of these sites that put factoids which aren't necessarily entirely researched so I will defer to your knowledge, especially with first hand experience from the actors.
    Though as I type this I wonder if the article said they exploded earlier than expected? I can't remember.

    Well said. And all it would have taken for an error on the pyro engineer's (or whatever the title is) part, or a glitch in the triggering mechanism for them to go off at the wrong time...

    BTW do you have the T30/Takara Legends Jetfire? He's part F-14 and I'm 99% sure on moving on my T30 Jetfire.

    Or indeed even composite the shot, having the real explosives go off but not with the actors there.

    May or may not indeed... thanks for the heads up :) 

    I like how that looks like Wolverine keeps his spare hands on face on a side table with a photo of Jean :lol 

    Thanks for the info and experimentation. I have a different issue that my spare parts Seeker currently is missing the screws that connect those pieces to the body... fortunately they work with friction alone. I forget why exactly I left the screws undone but now I can't find the screws. I know I put them in a safe point, which was my first mistake! :lol 

    Also a yellow and red/orange Seeker? Interesting!

    ...

    BTW would anyone be interested in an Energon Omega Supreme? It's the one I bought from @joetele but I'm not feeling it... I think I generally prefer the more greebled WFC/Studio Series look and he's a bit too big block of toy look for me I think... he's mostly complete, has his head, has some slight paint damage and no missiles. Cost would be somewhere between £42 to £55 probably. £42 is what I paid Joe for it but I'll need to account for postage and such and I'm not sure how much that'll be yet. I'll get some photos together if there's interest.
    I'd like for it to go to a fellow fan as I'd feel a bit guilty tossing him up on ebay after taking it off of Joe so you guys are my first refusal group :thumb

    Now I see why Waspinator was a Kup retool!

    I recently watched the Death Wish films which was it was so obvious to me.
    Waspinator, Shadow Panther, Poisonous Fog, Phantomscope and MFT Wreck-Gar arrived today.
    Shadow Panther is a repaint so nothing new there. phantomscope is the same but a couple of differences to make it worth while.
    Poisonous Fog is a repaint and that’s it. Still nice though.
    I’m about to mess with Waspinator. Looks fun.
    Wreck Gar is simple and a bundle of joy.
    Also Mentis has been shipped from PSX.
    Also MMC are finally doing Autobot cassettes in the form of Steeljaw. Only been waiting years for them so I am chuffed. 6FF74181-7256-4873-8F0A-D00F054230C6.jpeg

    I’ve been sitting on the sofa with my debit card to hand ready to pop in a couple of preorders and……

    I’ve put it back in my wallet.

    Kickback was the only figure revealed that I preordered. Thought we might get Blaster, maybe some prequel Jedi from Star Wars Black, maybe Toad for Marvel Legends. Instead I got sod all!

    Went with Scarlet Witch, White Vision, Toybiz Cap and Venom.

    Skipped Iron Man as I’m not a fan of the horned helmet (snigger) and cel shaded figures don’t float my boat (my cel shaded Prime/Megs 35th anniversary figures are sitting somewhere in the lockup)

    I’m not going to lie, I am very tempted to back the Haslab Skystriker. It’s curious that they’ve announced the stretch goals already.

    I like the look of Laser OP & I hope they do a Toxitron repaint.

    There is loads of stuff in the recent reveals that I like the look of but nothing really screaming ‘buy me’
