    Yep, solid advice for Smyths. Proven by my experience with Kingdom Waspinator. Talk about a bug infestation :oops:

    Thank you, you old fogey ;) 

    Nah that's fine :)  I just got confused :lol 

    I raised an eyebrow at that too. Alternatively I wonder if material costs have bumped what they could get away with as a 'large deluxe' with Siege into the Voyager price bracket now?

    Three? Ironhide, Ratchet and...? Or did you just have two of one of them?

    I must admit, part of me wishes I had got the Ironhide from that set, the riot shield looks pretty great.
    That said, I guess if we do get a new 'better' version, people might be looking to move their ER Vanbros on sometime... hmm.
    On the other other hand, I have all the Siegehide mold uses, twice in the case of Ironhide as he's waiting to be customised ^^. I just find that mold really satisfying. Then again, Ironhide was the first Siege bot I bought... that was a slippery slope :lol  it's probably a narrow toss up between Siege and PotP for percentage of the toyline I own... I know I own all/nearly all the PotP Deluxes and Voyagers because Combiners :D 

    I stand by my view that this sort of behaviour by streaming services accounts for half the... let's say 'Third Party' streaming of TV shows. Sure you'll always have people who just don't want to pay but there's a hell of a lot of us who would happily pay if given the chance to watch this stuff!

    Then again I think internet region locking is bullshit in general :mad:

    Surely SS86 Ironhide is going to be some lower legs and a feebly reaching arm with his middle being a molten effects part?

    Shattered Glass Ratchet, maybe?

    I was gonna mention taking to the high seas earlier. Choppy waters was where I caught Cyberverse...

    There's no excuse for shows not being available now. Whatever a streaming service will pay the IP owners is always gonna be better than it just using up server space. And it's not like that disc money is what it used to be!

    Can any of you game folk clarify for an old head like me - if I have Xbox game pass, does that include/incorporate what used to be ‘Xbox live’?

    Game Pass is just the large library of downloadable games, Game Pass Ultimate however does include Live Gold which allows you to play online multiplayer.

    @Siege Fan,
    Totally agree on supermarket websites making home delivery more like a lottery, I'd sooner go round the store as that way I know I'll get what I want or be able to find an adequate substitute instead of their seemingly random choices.

    That's what kills me, 'item unavailable' when you know there's enough of it in the store for the whole community!

    And the automatic refund for the Pepsi? They refunded the wrong Pepsi... it's been one of those days where I wanna just fucking headbutt stuff.

    Well I almost had an Elijah Price moment when selling Takara Unicron.

    When the email came through "Do you have any pictures of the item outside of the box, its for my son for Christmas"...
    Your son?? You do realise this is a rare Japanese figure, that was highly sought after in a much better colour scheme than the hasbro version, and you want to give it to your son... for Christmas???"

    In reality though, when boxing it up I realised I had all the twist ties still in the box - so spent far too long putting them all back on and making it look as new as I could. Think it will pass for brand new now!

    No problems, he's for my cousin in Pakistan anyway so no rush. (As long as he gets here before the 19th when I fly out).

    Sigh, well - in a completely predictable fashion - someone dived in at the very last second on evilBay and outbid me on Trash Talk & Cogwheel. :( 

    Guess its a pair of figures I'm never destined to own.

    Yeah I haven't heard pretty much anywhere near as much as I normally would have by now.the clampdown is real.

    If you like John Cena there's a few of his movies on Star including one from this year 'Vacation Friends'.

    I also enjoyed the 'What We Do in the Shadows' spin off series with Matt Berry and one of the fellas from 'Sirens'.

    If you like straight horror the have 'The Strain'.
