    I’d be peed off as well and there is still time for them to do the same to my order.

    I don’t have it ordered anywhere else.

    Amazon do have form for this.

    Entertainment Earth have got the Shattered Glass Prime and Ratchet two pack back in stock if anyone still needs one.

    My Slammer order is still live on Amazon UK. Ordered 30 Sept and 'expected by' 15 Dec.

    Great kitty cat, would love to see it repurposed. Can use to pick out details or bigger areas. I have a 2 mm and a 4 mm version of the molotow

    @nice sideburns Eyoop, Andy (and anyone else interested) in case you haven't seen the relatively new 1/60 SCALE COMPATIBLE TOYS & TOYLINES Thread yet, it turns out FEITE is actually Fei Te and also:
    Anyone with the wherewithal (and equipment) to 3D Print can expand their Diaclone gear with some neat odds & ends for cheap as free from his Cults page!
    I'd actually stumbled across this page before in a search but utterly failed to put 2 & 2 together thru the mere presence of an underscored name gap! D'OH!

    Just when everybody is desperately clearancing it, The Entertainer have got Rodimus in at £90 odd quid :D 
    ...

    Just thought of something, did Hasbro officially announce Panther and Waspinator? Because I remembered BBTS have those but pulled their listings for Pipes and Slammer. Currently they have a full deluxes set that only lists said beasts and not the missing two.

    Let it cure for as long as you possibly can. Also, a small brush and a cocktail stick will help you get into tricky areas.

    Crikey, he looks good!!!

    Speaking of, I'm hoping FP's Artfires come in this week as I don't want to have to wait too long to get the lovely lad. Definitely getting the fillers AND the Toyhax on him as he looks so wrong without his leg panels :D

    Is that a jim Cornette reference?!
    I love the drive through! The musical segments at the end always crack me up. I agree with 90% of what he has to say on the modern product! Class!

    Sorry to hear about the MUFC thing! I thought Maguire’s knee slide ears celebration didn’t do him any favours! What a heel :D 
    Hopefully I’ll be able to get up to Stamford bridge soon, I can sit in the cinema but for some reason the football still makes me a bit uneasy.

    99.9% I'm sure. I said I wanted to see how the auction played out and got another request.

    Dammit. Now I'm needing some walnut Whips.

    Charmingly debauched is the name of my band that does smutty parodies of popular nu metal. :p 

    They don't deserve you. Also another repaint of Megs into xaran.

    Speaking of, I could see a cheeky macadam from Legacy bulkhead.

    conversations like this make me think I should try my hand at customising again.

    Right?

    Fool! That's stage one of their mating ritual.

    I have my.own nurses outfit doug. It's crotchless, chest less and legless. It shows all of the parts of me you don't want to see.

    Jaysus that sounds like a qc nightmare man. Moss deserves better. He'd use his robot hand for good

    Typical Entertainer eh?

    I'm assuming your mean Xaaron and not, well, me :p 

    As for a Maccaddam, I like to imagine his altmode as some kind of compact fuel tanker. Seems appropriate.

    Just watched a ropey video claiming that Hasbro are rather angry with Paramount for pulling RotB to try and salvage potential box office earnings for obvious reasons. The suggestion was there's been nothing wrong with production, just a Paramount move before their contract ends.

    Make of that what you will, but I'm more interested in what potentially gets pulled forward to fill the store shelves...

    Been at OS KO Jeep BB tonight trying to put Alternator Swindle head on it and here is what I've managed to butcher:

    IMG_20211117_223506.jpg

    He looks really good but I'm a bit disappointed that I may not be able to transform him properly.
    Instead of trying to repin the head to the original neck joint, I whittled the neck joint down to slide into the head so I can glue it into place. I think his head is too big for the bonnet now so it won't close.

    I'll see what happens and may try something different if it crops up. I'll leave it as an Action Master for now as he looks cool enough.

    Isn't it every young person's dream to be immortalised as a repaint of a robo-stalin?

    I've no idea on the backstory on why it's been shifted, but I can confirm that it's a pretty significant issue for the TF team.

    RotB was pretty much meant to be the lynchpin of the line next year, with all kinds of retailers/merchandise and tie ins that now have to roll over an entire year.

    The team's definitely got their work cut out for them!

    If Maccaddam had an earth mode, I reckon the front cab of a Dray truck would be appropriate.

    Also, all round toy expert @Siege Fan , any idea what Joker this is?

    Having a clear out at home, and sales thread will be updated tomorrow - in the meantime, do any of you have any kids who enjoy nerf/marvel??

    All working, anyone wants them then a tenner gets them sent to your door! :)

    Accept the offer, delay shipping by 3 weeks and then cancel, claiming that your two sick children needed the box as a pillow.
