    No problems on the having it sourced, saves me a trip!
    And I agree on Galvatron's crest. That's the bit that finally made me cancel it.

    Well Black Friday spending done...

    Core 'Bee Shockers is neat but the big bulbous eye of the design really doesn't help on the super deformation/chibi front, and is it me or does he look utterly enraged at being in tank mode?

    Just absolutely furious, seething, the sheer self-loathing fury of a tryhard novice yoga parctitioner convinced they're doing it wrong perfectly embodied in a sub-4" transforming action figure.
    Maybe it's because Skywarp keeps humming "Face Down/Ass Up" every time he trundles by?

    Seeing peoples pics of Fire Guts made me take a look at Sixo’s review. Thoroughly impressive.

    I ordered the regular Power Baser God Bomber combo last week and didn’t realise they had space for the Headmaster Juniors to sit in the cab.

    Genuinely can’t wait for it to arrive.

    Can confirm it is appearing and hey I bought something from you the other day! :D 

    I find Autobot Impactor's Autobrand looks purple in most photos. I think it's an optical illusion because of all the surrounding purple. No idea why it'd be the case with Jackpot!:lol 

    Funnily enough the more I see of this guy's altmode the more I like it, heck I think I might prefer it to my Siegewave! It has this great Snowspeeder, skimmer kind of look to it IMO :) 

    They'd probably have to fight Disney's lawyers:

    Yeah :( 

    :lol 
    I'm still puzzled by the Core release :confused: 

    @Insurgent My Gigawatt had a similarly speedy dispatch! :eek: 


    Aww :oops:

    Yes the promo! Don't really get chance to watch much wrestling recently (and try avoid the chat in here too much as it seems to get opinionated!) but it does feel that AEW are making the most of characters that stand out. Lost faith in WWE when they refuse to push Cesaro, despite his talent.

    One arrival from the past week or so…

    I forgot to say this before: Has anyone made replacement beast hands for Maximal Grimlock? Hands down they're more frustrating in person!

    To be honest, that’s a very good price for an MP Prime, arguably the best bang for your buck if you don’t give a toss about the extra bells and whistles and just want a nice looking space dad on the shelf.

    That UW Devy would be rather tempting if this wasn't the period between Halloween and Christmas where I'm effectively broke.

    With the help of a little paint and the hopes of a better sticker set from Toyhax why not both?

    He didn't finish transforming him - there's a bit that folds out to fill in the gap between the folded legs and a 'window' that folds out from inside his back too. Tsk.

    Personally, I find he looks much more swooshable than the Siege brick. Kinda Snowspeedery.

    JESUS. PHWOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

    Oh arse. I was hoping for a couple more weeks wait :S

    Guess we'll be finding out if the PSX exclusive accessory is irrelevant or anger-inducing shortly then...

    Tsk. He's been OOS for weeks :( 

    You bargain-slinging bastard.

    Didn't do the shoulder fix yet? There are plenty of tutorials out there.

    Niiiice! Got a couple of spare shoulder plugs if you want them? Saves splitting apart the toy and potentially damaging the figure.
