    Thanks. I think you are already in on BZ which has a shield. With regards to Commander/leader size figures not many with shields spring to mind. Will ponder on this.

    That tiny Hotrod came via a TFSafari order. It was a freebie gift. I was hoping I could get more characters in that size. The figure does transform.

    That is TE-01? How is he?

    Really looking forward to mine now. Waiting on Omegalock.

    Sounds like the wait will be worth it.

    You got a great result there. I was lucky swerving import vat with Superitron at the start of this year when I bought through Wish store on AliExpress. Quite the contrast to XTB Monolith in getting the aerialbots quickly into gestalt mode

    I’ve had some Thundercats on preorder since January 2020.

    I’ve taken in a bit more Canadian culture:

    Folks avoid Collectors Den is my advice, been trying every which way to get a refund on a cancelled item for a month now. Not a single response. Prior to that emails were ignored about a missing item and I believe @Gumblor Gimbles spent some time chasing up an order with them.

    He’s fantastic, genuinely glad I traded out my KO44.

    Should have listened to @nice sideburns at TFN2018 when he showed me this…. But to have picked it up at such a ridiculously good price feels like I’ve robbed someone.

    Very satisfying figure and purchase.

    How is the Masters of the Universe Mega Construx stuff?

    First, Point Dread is really cheap at Smyths, oooh, nice, but no, I say, I don't need to start a new collection, I have no other MOTU stuff. Disclaimer: I was really big into MOTU 200X, had loads of the figures which were very photogenic. May post some really old pics if anyone's interested. But I sold them all in a big toy purge years ago, had to streamline my collections.

    Er, anyway, trying to resist that really cheap Point Dread and then Seige Fan posts up that Amazon Castle Greyskull, which seems like a really good price. I don't need it though, right? I should stick to Lego stuff.

    Good choice. I'm sure he'd have approved man.

    Not really, I get them from behind and yank them out well enough. Haven't had much issues with them on my Prime, but my nemesis version, they are a little trickier.

    Yikes. I'll be quiet and wait until 2023 for my action master man to arrive :(

    I love it. So far only partially assembled greyskull and the battle ram, but I love the figures.

    Maybe it's a Nemesis thing being a bit tighter on the pin joints. I only have the netflix nemmy version of the mould. Guess I just need a bit of practice on it.

    A trip to Smyths in Mansfield may be in the offing tonight as my eldest wants to get FIFA 22.

    I will not hold myself responsible if Dad comes back with one of those cheap MOTU Mega Blocks sets and a DX Triple H Survivor Series figure! ;) 

    Speaking of WWE figures, finally got to collect the basic Seth Rollins figure which I wanted for the noggin' for my custom John Marston figure. Now to find some time to start it! :D

    Me too!
    Not had any shipping update or delivery date estimate as of yet. Have you?

    I also added MP Bumblebee with him so it will be a double present when he arrives.

    Lovely stuff - I couldn’t pass on this MP OP for that price given all the rave reviews about the job TE have done. I’m even more looking forward to it. I’m pleased you are happy you made the right call. Hopefully Omegalock are in receipt to ship to me.

    Both of those acquisitions look great Brendan. Gambit has a lovely face sculpt. Did the jacket come with him or was it taken from another figure you have?

    With regards to Sonner Toys, my one order with them which was placed in May, they have now updated the details on their website. Only in the last few weeks they have altered from Expected in Stock May 2021 to TBC:

    A5F17CFD-A6D5-4C2B-869A-58CFEC7CD7E1.png

    I really should crack on with that refund. No further update or news for me from them. Sigh.

    EDIT: @w00dimusPr1me - I’ve had zip news from Omega. I think I paid the whole lot up front so I’m expecting them to just ship out once in receipt. With a couple receiving from ShowZ I think we won’t be waiting much longer

    I would have waited an eternity for this. Then I remembered eBay existed.

    Might be the case!

    So this....


    Bit underwhelmed. But that was my experience with the Mando trailer. Cautious optimism mode engaged.

    Post away, plenty of 200X fans here. I'm only buying the MC sets for the figures or whatever I can use from them, the actual builds I don't need as I'll be buying the Origins versions or own them already.

    Yeah, they must be going through the inbox, finally. There's a mistake with mine though as I'd paid in full for one item and so far they think I didn't.

    Post 200x stuff! I recently got back into it and binged the whole show. It was the He-Man revival we didn't deserve.

    I bought few toys that I'd previously sold or never owned, but stopped once I found myself eyeing late wave rarities that command a penny or two.
