    Haha.

    Maybe the next car boot fare will yield the rest of Dragonstorm for him/you.

    Ok seems my ultra cheap MIB Catwoman and Harley figures are actually MISB, both were single taped and tied into the plastic tray...making this even more of a bargain

    That video should be the standard, going forward. I hardly even bother with paper instructions tbh as most of them are unreadable. Anything I can't figure out intuitively with the help of looking at pics of both modes on the box I just watch a video of.

    Really impressed with what I've seen of Acoustic Wave. Definitely glad I preordered him and the cassettes, just hoping they don't BOTH arrive at the same time, as per current rumours :S

    @Apollux I figure a half-powered up Johnny Storm alongside his sister making faces won't look good, so I'm going with his standard release and her exclusive to minimise the visual damage. Especially since Ben and Reed will be powered up anyway.

    @Xaran Alamas,
    Rebecca did her version of the foot check this afternoon. She lurks under my bed and waits until I'm dusting a shelf or adjusting a display and then zips out and CHOMP! :D 

    I reckon ferrets could help the NHS with blood tests, they're very efficient at extracting it :D 

    "Afraid of needles.....no problem, we have a cute furry creature to get the blood instead" :D 

    @barry,
    Cheers, I think my Dad must have had a word because so far Mum hasn't made any remark along the lines of "I told you it wasn't a heart issue" which would have not been necessary but that doesn't normally stop her. I was just trying to be sensible and not taking anything for granted because I'm now at an age where heart problems can be more likely to occur and I really felt odd, it wasn't a normal stomach ache type of feeling or a tightness I'd associate with asthma which I had problems with when I was younger, I didn't know, so that's why I rang the docs.

    I've gone cold turkey on soft drinks before and wasn't exactly bouncing off the walls because of it so that'll be less of a problem and salty snacks are pretty easy to ignore as I just avoid the aisle in the supermarket.

    More exercise will be the harder thing to motivate myself to do but if I stick to basic stuff like walking I'll fare better because there's always an element of competitiveness around gyms that I can't be arsed with.

    @Astro-Furby,
    I think I'm OK with fruit juice in limited amounts but have found in the past that I'd have to have really tiny glasses of it at a time, it's the same with eating actual fruit, really small amounts eg 6 grapes or something daft like that.

    I'm good with milk, so I can still have it in cups of tea and the occasional milkshake isn't being ruled out either :D

    Crusha no added sugar is just devine, along with Maryland Sugar Free Choc Chip Cookies smothered in Tesco own brand sugar free nutella and Saindburys sugar free milk chocolate, makes eating sugar free almost as good as full sugar food

    The great injustice of the Prime wars has been reversed!

    Indeed it is. Its called Metal Deformation F22. Not sure which company it's from, plastic feels a bit different to the legendary prime and bee ko, but it doesn't feel cheap. Die cast only in the feet. I got it from Mosen store on aliexpress for £72 including postage and import fees. Like i said, that ls-04 looks good and the ss mould is fantastic for a mainline series, but masterpiece needs that extra oomph. And this guy delivers! Even his back thrusters can be posed.

    Hm. I was going to say your photo was broken but it showed up in the quote. I had thoroughly repressed ever seeing that... thing.

    They'll be sorry when I set up my dodgy Hong Kong back alley KO company. They'll be sorrrryyyyy...

    Hey! I... uh...

    I mean, fair point, but still.

    Late Yodel.......and there was me about to accuse them of losing it. IMG_20211028_185007.jpg

    The manliest Demi-god, the one being that can beat up He-Man for his lunch money and wedgie The Hulk.......this utterly ridiculous character makes me smile. That's a good thing.

    Geeky Nerd Toys I think. Then Comics. IDT still has for PO. Kapow the only one from the usual etailers who are out of stock.

    Possible Collectibles and others might be just as competitive.

    I managed to get BZ done with GNT on the deposit plus payment over 8 months at £15 pm. Last payment November. Comics is your place if you don’t want to go with GNT as I don’t think they give a deposit only option now.

    The tapes are not coming at the same time. They are releasing a month apart, as which has always been stated. TCP accidentally said they were incoming as per quote
