    Thanks, I wasn't sure if they just meant in the US. Ok well either way it looks like no new bots til 2022 for me.

    Been a bit of a weird one trying to buy TF's the last year and a half. Hope things settle down a bit more next year. :) 

    Holy Enabling Enablement Batman!

    @Siege Fan I hope you're right about the Phantom, I was happy with my DoE version but now I've seen the striped undies variant I have a mighty need.

    The game is surprisingly very good, unlike Square Enix's last Marvel offering, 'The Avengers', which I never played and from everything I've heard I was totally justified in not wasting money on.

    The story, characters, and certain parts of the plot are an amalgamation of the Abnett & Lanning run of the comics that introduced the modern Guardians, and the MCU versions of the characters that most of the mainstream audience probably know them best from. Like, Peter Quill is a lot more of a hero and a leader like his comics characterisation, but he has the visual look and obsession with 80's pop culture from the MCU. It's a nice balance.

    The best part of the game is the soundtrack. There's a mechanic in the game that replaces the background music of a fight with a random track from Quill's 80's mixtape until the end of the fight, and earlier today I was in a hectic firefight with Rick Astley blasting 'Never Gonna Give You Up' in the background :D 

    In fact, this is also part of the game's licensed soundtrack :lol

    I don't know... the smirk makes it seem like he's saying something more like;

    "Brains... amirite?"

    Good to hear!

    FYI folks, I've lumped some items onto my ebay page to help cover an unexpected hole in the finances - if anyone cares to take a look.

    Yaaaaaas, I now have a colour changing Zartan!! I just need a hooded cobra commander and a Baroness who looks like a member of an elite international terrorist organisation rather then a Twitter cancel mob and my cobra wall will be looking rather good.✌️

    I reckon Baroness will get a single release without the bike eventually but the only option for a hooded Cobra Commander will be a custom head as it's presently something Hasbro are saying is off limits......I believe one of the Super 7 team mentioned they wanted to include one with their Ultimates figure but got turned down.

    Here's a painted example of the custom one I've seen for sale,

    I didn't go for the Mega Construx MOTU stuff in the end - I watched a few reveiws and didn't really like the look of the figures, which I know a few of you do. I know the Lego minifig is inferior but I have hundreds and hundreds of them, it's ingrained in me.

    But a couple of people did say yes to MOTU 200X pics, so here are a few really really old pics:

    So ignoring a key piece breaking apart within 20 mins, I managed a quick lunch break tinkering with Cynicus and he’s hella fun to pose and emote with, has a real Guyver look to him, and he can pull off some very balletic poses. I am still happy I got him, and the breakage has only slightly compromised rifle mode which by all accounts based on video reviews was kinda compromised anyway, I’ll see if I can get Tarn to hold him, but as a tinker toy he is worthwhile, if a little pricey based on the QC. I think I’ll have to be careful with all the light grey plastic as it’s feeling very fragile but luckily other than the sight nothing else broken or loose. Should have searched the forums first, but it’s fitting a toy bought with money from problems is kinda problematic lol

    I need to give myself a really good talking to or I'm going to end up buying one of these. The Eagles are 5", so it's quite a piece of real estate... for £160 !!! Not sure what dialouge is though? Dialogue's debauched cousin?
