It's not perfect, but for sure it comes closer than even Cybertron Red Alert. Crossing fingers.
I’d prefer a dedicated mold, but it’s very passable with a new head and his colour scheme. I’d be happy with it.
Get in. Won £20 on it as well
De Gea apparently played so well the score was kept to only 4. He's actually been good this season but the defence and midfield continually throw him under the bus and he can't keep everything out.
Maguire should have been left to rot in that Greek jail for misbehaving and trying to give it the "Don't you know who I am?". Utter bellend.
I am considering putting a quid on Chelsea reaching double figures by half time next week and a further quid on the increased likelihood Ronaldo will be gone in January because he doesn't want any of this shit on his record any more than it already is.
The official club narrative will still be "Ole has progressed the club since Mourinho", even though Mourinho actually won trophies"
Really liking the alt mode on that Bumblebee. Obviously the robot mode is harder to pull off but the G1 episode 1 alt mode looks super smooth.
Totally agree, I've never been convinced the batteries were even a short term answer.
Isn't garlic bread the future?
Electric cars are useful too, but it's bread, garlic and sometimes cheese. Revolutionary.
Got my Origins Bumblebbe. He's neat. Couldn't transform him fully at first which confused me, turns out there was a bit of plastic flash stopping me folding one of the legs completely, quick slice with a craft knife and all good. The robot mode is very kibbly but at the size I've seen worse. The alt mode is a lovely little urine coloured hockey puck.
You can tell the accessories were used as an excuse to bump up the price point. The somewhat neat rocket back...which I'm pretty sure Bumblebee never had, and the useless energy conductor things. Yay I have 5 orange plastic sticks...now what?
Shameless Saturday shill folks :
Brum Bots For Sale Items!!
Feast your eyes, sure I can add some additional discount for U.K. Threadizens
In thunder, lightning, or in rain.
(I hate this toy)
LOL, yeah I picked up Cyberverse Commander class Bulkhead in a bag of bits on Facebook. The full size PRiD version is on my work desk, him, Ultra Magnus, Megatron and a host of others have been waiting for me to move so they can come home.
I picked up that metal TARDIS plate from The Who Shop 20 years ago. Dr Who is my other passion, I’m currently working on an attic display cabinet too.
Pictures when ready.
Hello Percy, well done on escaping from the factory old chap.
That gap in his back is horrendous, but at least there is a convenient socket/screw hole below it to plug the inevitible filler piece into.
UPDATE: T30 Rhinox now sold.
Also, just noticed Wierdwolf's tail isn't pictured however, this is included.
HOLY SHIT, to the calendar you go!!!
Nah, it's too low res. Also it's one of my least favourite toys in my collection.
News breaking that the United board have called an emergency meeting.
Like the Judas Priest song, some heads are gonna roll!
Apologies for the earlier KFC enablement and any affect it may have on your diet
I've got 2 Character Options ones, the 4th Doctor's and the recent release of the 2nd Doctor's.
I've also had these laser sculpted crystal ones which came with light up bases for several years,

(I haven't removed the cellophane to help keep the dust at bay)
The bases can also pull double duty with smaller Transformers,

To say it's pretty much a refinement of the TR Transformation, it ain't that refined IMHO. Seems to me a chunk of the aesthetics for 'scope and tank mode have been binned for a waist and ankle tilts, though benefit of the doubt one assumes we're supposed to turn the head around rather than PvP's visible face case (and if he's right, then it slides further down in my estimation). Still TR < SS'86 in my book. The deploying caterpillar tread extensions in tank mode is an overlooked Triggerhappy Twist Tier bit of design engineering. Plus a better put together microscope mode (at least when muggins here remembers to put it the lens/cannon down correctly instead of hooked into the tank mode-specific tabbing point - D'oh!)!
It's been a day of sorting out today to see what can go and what stays.
This fella is a forgotten gem.
Feck, I now have no taste!
Some will say my taste left me years ago, especially in fashion and conversation!
Also my anniversary tomorrow and we were getting a curry in. So cruel, I love my food!
Time for a vindaloo my good man
Ah, after yesterday’s drama, today is a better day. Karma doing all the work.
