    More Trapper Wolf stock? I know where I'll be at 6pm then.

    Rebecca ferret is in slightly bad books because she did a toilet in the kitchen. Took literal seconds to clean up and a couple of squirts of pet friendly disinfectant prevented any stink but Mum was whinging about it for the next half an hour :rolleyes: 

    Going to watch the next episode of Gone Fishing later which appears to be a Christmas one.

    If you could hold it until Wednesday, I'd be happy to take Waspinator off your hands!

    The other thing with Scourge is that there's some evidence that his alt mode was designed to be a land based vehicle and the cartoon decided to make him a spaceship just cos.

    So who knows, really?

    Not sure how widespread this is, but I spotted and grabbed a Galvatron with the correct shoulders from Linwood Smyths just now. The other one in there still had the wonky shoulders.

    Those feet figures are gonna have to be made of really strong stuff to take the weight of 6 figures ontop of them and not crumble.

    At least MMC made it optional. You could have the standard five, or you could have a sixth to bulk out the back a bit too. Adding Carnivac as a mould reuse for Rampage makes sense.


    I'd heard he was meant to originally be a hovercraft. As in one of those ones that scoot across land and sea at ground level. Which does mean his shape makes sense.

    Cheapest option is the double-detolf homebrew. Two units joined together with the middle glass panels removed, some people cut the wood top and bottom to make sure they connect closer to eliminate dust issues.

    Wish I knew! I was pondering this for my collection today.
    Ultimately, I’ll knock up some temporary shelves and then build some proper shelf units out of decent hard wood, maybe cherry, and put some glass on the front to keep dust out.

    looking forward to it.

    Nice collection, love those lines!

    I had an ikea detof(?) one and it was great for a lot of stuff but it'd be far too narrow for these guys unless you want those primes two to a shelf.

    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.
