    Yes definitely Camay gone wrong, if he wasn't a villain in Transformers he would work well as an adversary for Captain Underpants.

    Trapper Wolf secured. Would have liked a 2nd because a friend wants one but there was a 1 per customer limit.

    @CZ Hazard,
    Is that a Storm Collectibles beat 'em up lad?

    The quality of the effect pieces suggests so, not a line I collect but I love what they've done with some of the Mortal Kombat characters.

    The one Storm figure I have ( 1st version of Jushin Liger) is fantastic and I have a friend who's said their Lobo is decent. Still waiting for more news on the Gatchaman license, specifically whether there'll be a full team or not.

    SG Optimus and Ratchet turned up today.

    Went in on them because I'm really enjoying the SG line, and I'll be honest I wasn't expecting much - but DAMN that Optimus pops in hand ! Photos really don't do him justice !

    Oh had my PulseCon BW Ravage sent out today that was cool. Tracking number isn't active yet but I'll guess Thursday. It's being sent Yodel so it could be a day early or 2 days late and next door going by past efforts.

    Those Junkions look cool has anyone ever made the female junkion from the movie?

    No, they don't :D  IMG_20210418_105216.jpg

    He's my favourite repaint just for the vibrancy of the colours. I'd deffo be down for a Toxitron just to see how that would pop on this or the Siege mold.

    IMG_20211025_075752.jpg

    My other favourite mold. Liking the way TCrack actually photographs with that light powder-blue look rather than the sort of turquoise-y blue he seems to appear to be to my eyes.

    And.......I missed the Crapper Wolf thing again. Oh well.

    Tis the rather lovely diorama I bought of the legendary @Brooticus a few months back, he designed it with a led lighting system underneath. I full on Love it.

    Ah your already of my, I was looking for a suitable looking stake for her to drive through his heart for a follow up pic :p 

    Glad they didn't opt for dara. I know he's an avid gamer, but he's a bit too excitable for the game master chair.

    Custom job might be the way to go. He'll of a collection. Costco Prime is a purty fella.

    Yeah, I've been eyeing up the Axel Stone and Tekken ones for a while and took the plunge with the Kapow sale. Very impressed.

    I don't feel the need to collect whole ranges either, happy to pick and choose favourite characters from each video game as they work well together. I hope they do Final Fight at some point.

    There is a ship in Star Wars based of a very specific Sauropod vertebra, to give one extreme example of inspiration….
    Was the Umbaran Starfighter from Clone Wars inspired by an Apatosaurus vertebra?

    Totally missed MPM BB Optimus for £85 because that's not my bag, baby. (Despite the design's utterly vast improvement on "Real Life" OP.)

    You guys know!


    Might be asking a series of (basic) questions as I try to work out what versions to get off G Works.

    When did the Dinobots have orange swords?

    BTW I thought Slag’s horns were red in the cartoon but they were grey, just red in the toy. The toy memories are strong!

    Hmm SS86 Slag already has grey horns. Is there a good alternative to Nonnef for a red sword?

    Dark Max from SOR4 might tip the balance in his favour.

    Lets add to that; Shiva vs Ryu. Akuma vs Devil Jin Kazama. Paul Phoenix vs Axel Stone. Blaze Fielding vs Chin Li. Kazuya vs Sagat (battle of the scar).

    Nerds.

    One beat 'em up character in the Storm range that has tempted me a bit is King from Tekken as being a wrestler he'd be fun to pose fighting with Liger.

    The one failing with the Liger figure is that they didn't make him to scale with other wrestling lines but he's otherwise great, I want to get the black and gold variant eventually as well.
