    Don't know if it'll be of interest to anyone, but Smyths have dropped the MOTU Mega Construx Panthor at Point Dread from the already reduced £30 to £25 and now to £15, which seems pretty reasonable. 191323_7.jpg

    Vinegar fact = Ferrets hate the smell of it.

    Fireworks = Organised events in parks, fine. Allowing randoms to buy them so they can do it in their gardens without a thought for any animal they or neighbours may have I'm less fond of. One of the reasons I moved Ferret HQ inside was because of that kind of thing. Now Rebecca will just bury herself under all her blankets and sleep whilst the racket is going on.

    @SJW,
    What @Dobbie said, an OSKO of the Magic Square set.

    It's a very good price compared to the legit one but I have the same issue with the car modes, they're too cartoony for my taste and lacking the realism that Newage will bring.

    Here's the render of Newage Breakdown,
    NewAge H36 Hitcher Breakdown - Show.Z Store (showzstore.com)

    That Countach looks as good as MP12, no mean feat at that scale but they've done it before with their Nissans and Jazz.

    So my willpower lasted all of about 30seconds after that disappointing 1027 stream.

    He looks great, I'm likely going to keep the packaging which is an honour in my space starved household.

    Glad to see people are as excited about the new Blaster as I am too!

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

    Hellraiser (30th Anniversary Edition - Official Animated Video) - YouTube

    I'm guessing this is an accurate depiction of what occurred during a typical night out with Ozzy and Lemmy :D 

    @barry,
    Whilst my focus on other stuff can be all over the place I seem to be good at the self care thing, got to be careful I don't confuse it with self love 'cos that apparently leads to blindness :D 

    Football again later. Hoping for a Ronaldo goal but Spurs to get about 5 as I don't want Ole to fluke his way to staying in the job like he's done several times previously.

    If they lose all the next 3 games then the club have a 2 week international break to replace [email protected] Boc's cake based philosophy deserves a chance!

    Another 30 years of progress pic of the best non-comic version of Batman, and whilst he newest McFarlane figure has the best articulation its proportions are all wrong, the DC Collectibles version is clearly the most show accurate but at the time the original figure was so darn good:

    I’m delighted to see you caved and did the sensible thing. It’s a lovely thing.

    I, too, am delighted with the Blaster news.

    The Smyths discount selection process seems to entirely be based on: is it out of stock in Jspaced’s area? Great then knock it down to peanuts.

    "Hey! Give that back!"

    "You have the man-tan, but I have ALL the Power,"

    In my headcannon Herc gets drunk with Skippi and the Recorder and wakes up on Eternia.....where hilarity ensues.

    Blaster when? And how?

    I don't get it... if they bothered to paint the lights, why are all lights yellow? I assume they are aiming for Sunbow accuracy?

    At least, Kapow has in stock some great stuff:
    - MCFARLANE TOYS BATMAN 1966 THE JOKER
    - MARVEL LEGENDS DOCTOR STRANGE SUPREME WHAT IF?
    - STAR WARS THE BLACK SERIES GALEN ERSO ROGUE ONE

    I always wanted a Galen Erso, it's like a dream come true. I wonder if it fits inside Kingdom Ultra Magnus.

    Not a clue, no real interest myself other than a Legacy version.

    That retro Hercules headsculpt is one for the ages, really does the character justice.

    Rebecca ferret is in an amiable mood as she allowed her claws to be trimmed with minimal fuss and then sat there licking up salmon oil from my hand with the slightly glazed eyes of someone really enjoying something, a bit like me when I'm devouring pie & chips with gravy :D 

    @barry,
    Dad's gotten quite adept at stepping in to shut my Mum's BS down because he's as sick of it as I am. Just this morning he had to do so again when I made a casual comment about what type of ferrets I'd like to get in the future once Rebecca's gone (I really like the angora breed as they're super fluffy) which prompted Mum to start off on a rant about how "You're not having any more whilst I have any say" at which point I said "Good thing you don't have any say then" and walked off.

    EDIT,
    @Brum Bot,
    New RVD pre-orders,
    Rob Van Dam (RVD) (Tiger Stripes) - WWE Elite 91 WWE Toy Wrestling Action Figure by Mattel! (ringsidecollectibles.com)

    (Chase Variant Ying Yang) Rob Van Dam (RVD) - WWE Elite 91 WWE Toy Wrestling Action Figure by Mattel! (ringsidecollectibles.com)

    Will probably just go for the tiger stripe one as I'm not familiar with the attire for the other one.

    I also like the 2002 Hogan in that wave but will wait for the eventual Ultimate Edition version of that attire.

    Experimenting with mould making, trying the silicone sealent and cornflour method. Tried some old white stuff I had spare first and that didn't work, didn't think it would tbh.
