    Hi Folks,

    I’m looking to move on a few figures, not in any particular rush, but do feel free to drop me a PM with an offer. I’ll leave this up for a week or two before listing elsewhere.

    Full disclosure: I’ve not sold on here before but have bought a few figures and hopefully that was an easy enough experience for the sellers.

    The figures:

    · Generations Selects Deluxe Red Swoop (loose, comes w/ all accessories and instructions)
    · Generations Selects Deluxe Ricochet (loose, comes w/ all accessories and instructions)
    · The Last Knight Leader Dragonstorm (loose, comes w/ all accessories and instructions)
    · Earthrise Titan Scorponok (comes w/ box, all accessories and instructions) - sold 17/12/21
    · Siege Deluxe Chromia (loose, comes w/ all accessories)

    All figures are well looked after, pretty much same condition as they were out of the box, smoke-free, pet-free home. Happy to provide any requested photographs.

    Happy shopping!

    The Tigatron availability made me swiftly check their site, he is indeed in stock; import figure with import price. On Pipes and Slammer, any news on when these chaps will be available?

    Seems to be across a lot of the Board - I can see my own images but not a lot of what others have just been posting - including @Napalm post above which was bound to be gorgeous, but isn't loading for me.

    The selects one is the only one I’ll get, glad to see options for all though :) 

    I snagged one of those MM packs too, nearly left it but so glad I didn’t…!!! Watch me do nothing on the Saturday other than rue not having early access :lol

    Genuinely more excited for the kids show coming back than Revelation. And while I won't spoil it, especially after learning of some of the upcoming characters :D 

    I nearly ordered them but the spending has been insane recently and there's a chance Smyths will just put them out at £15, so...
    ...

    Just watched Shang Chi, can't say I was impressed. I didn't find anything about it to have been handled truly well tbh. It's just nowhere near as clever as it needs to be.

    Somehow the training sections are better choreographed and edited than the fights, and that's a real bummer for a martial arts movie. The humour is weak and the stuff around his mum doesn't bear the slightest scrutiny at all. And my Jet from Gladiators, you'd need to really enjoy CGI for that third act, especially since it's not on the big silver screen.

    I was so nonplussed my brain barely wondered what the credit stingers were about (and I still don't care). And that's another thing, potentially the weakest cameo uses in a Marvel movie yet! :confused: 

    Genuinely enjoyed Bloodshot more and it's a super-predictable Vin Diesel movie :eek: . Urgh, I hate adding to the 'never watch again' Marvel pile that is Iron Man 2 and Thor: Dark World :(

    After some deliberation Cacus is gonna be displayed in robot mode. While I fucking love the dino mode and he does just about fit on the Grim shelf in that mode despite it's length, his small dino feet and weird centre of gravity make me think he's gonna fall the second I look away.

    That's why I'm just getting the two I care about at full whack - just in case Wave 3 ends up being the one that ISN'T in massive abundance and on clearance at Smyths - Andra and Stinky can wait until £15 rings up at the till. IMG_20211113_201840.jpg

    If you had told 17yr old me that 50s me would spend any amount of time on a Saturday night massaging shock-oil into Fake HeMans crotch I think he would have chucked himself under the nearest bus.

    Totally agree, what's handy for me at least is the show will have been aired by then and I can determine if Andra and Stinky are essentially just expensive cameo figures in my terms!

    That is Tony Leung playing Shang Chi’s dad. He is one of Hong Kong’s greatest actors. Check him out in Hard Boiled with Chow Yun Fat and Anthony Wong (2 other great HK actors) and also Infernal Affairs. (I might be repeating myself so apologies if you are reading this twice.)

    The training scenes are always the best bit in martial arts films. They are showing you the secrets and making you think if you trained like that you will level up to greatness like in Drunken Master, Snake In The Eagle’s Shadow, Warriors Two, Prodigal Son etc…

    Simu Liu and Tony Leung don’t have the same pedigree martial arts training background as Sammo, Donnie, Jet, Jackie and Bruce etc… but they did well for their level. Simu surprised me but then I found out he done Tricking back in the day and he is quite athletic. The greatest martial arts actor in the film is Yuen Wah (Eastern Condors, Dragons Forever, Iceman Cometh (don’t watch Donnie’s remake, it’s pants!), Fist Of Fury (cameo)), Kung Fu Hustle who played Guang Bo, he was one of the 7 Little Fortunes (Jackie, Sammo, Yuen Biao, Corey Yuen).

    I think the Mainland Chinese audience like all that CGI fantasy animal stuff so Marvel probably had that in mind.

    BTW for those interested Donnie’s new film Raging Fire has a limited release in the cinemas in the UK.

    I'm starting to think that my Yodel driver isn't just "running a little late" and that he's not now going to deliver my second Goldbug today.

    I also got the e-mail this evening and along with Revelations Fisto I'm looking at finally getting Origins Mosquitor as well!

    Of all the figures I've gotten this year Origins Fisto has been up there with the best ones I've kept on my desk to fiddle around with as the articulation is just enough to allow for some decent poses and he's pretty sturdy so I never feel like anything will break.
