    @incapable hulk, when will you produce a stop motion remake of Queen's bohemian rhapsody, with Purtle Megs Rex, ER Sky Lynx, SS 86 Grim, and TR Skullcruncher.

    What is that jeep mold for the Jurassic Park set. Will it surface in Generations?

    It's Storm Jet so quite easy to Storm-something/Something-jet it but "Storm Jet" doesn't really say "Space Shuttle" to me, seeing as technically it's a "rocket ship" with rocket engines, no jets!
    Plus their base colour is off white compared to the prior Micromaster, and so some time ago...*Wobbly Video Flashback transition effect*
    Not before I get my Toy Colours Galvatron, dammit!

    Well thats Super7 Tarn and G2 Megatron pre-ordered. I was aiming on only getting Tarn, but the reveal that the G2 Megs gets his comic blue face and a hand that holds the extra Bludgeon head that will come with the Bludgeon figure was just too tempting. So that's some classic cover re-enactment going on next year (hopefully).

    Possibly since it’s the first use of this mold. My money is on Armada Red Alert.

    Appears to be an all new and Ford-licensed mould, my guess would be it’s a one-and-done like Netflix Bee as Ford will always want their slice; let alone any stipulations set out by Universal?

    As always, I’m happy to be corrected….

    Gorgeous. And there's no doubt I'll end up with the Set at some point - it'll just be sub £100 when I do.

    So the Haslab Rancor gets Fat, Sweaty Kebab-in-a-welder's smock Bloke as a desperation bribe? Hmmmmmm, tempting but still a no.

    That's got to be a joke right?
    Otherwise these sick fucks need locked up.
    I thought it was bad enough KFC tainted their gravy with mayo for that gravy burger, but this is a national tragedy.

    Beautiful.
    And I concur.
    Think tyranancon is my favourite version of the Kingdom mold so far. Jurassic Park on the outside, evil dinobot on the inside.

    That’s coming tomorrow. ;) 

    Thanks dude!

    The JP93 mould is completely new. As it’s a modified Ford Explorer I can’t imagine we’ll see it used again for anything other than Jurassic themed repaints if at all.

    There was a repaint of the Explorer planned planned for series 2 of Kenner’s Jurassic toyline back in the day, but it was ultimately cancelled. I’d love to see them do that, but it’s so obscure and niche it’s 99.9% certain they wouldn’t. There’s only a single picture of it in existence, from the old pack in catalogues.

    I'm afraid I must play curmudgeon here, I really hope T'Other Red gets a dedicated mould, although Legacy Skids having similarly unsightly knee blocks may not bode well on that front.

    If I had to define the last few years in a sentence that’d be it. How is this guy? Not attached to him but vaguely know of him, still loving my little Siege dude.

    I would be tempted but what I really after is a junker G1 skids with a reasonably intact rear wheels and bumper so I can repair my original one, which was my first ever tf. Has anyone got anything suitable?

    IDT have the Jurassic Park set in stock for preorder again. Got my order in. Will be keeping the Dino but the vroom vroom can take a long walk off a short cliff!
    If anyone just wants the car then keep me in mind!

    Been a slow week for bots for me. Instead I bought some tools that I arguably don’t need!

    :lol  Brilliant Bobby! Mad scientist…..


    The toy gods have been kind to me tonight. As I’ve mentioned, my lad is wanting Fasttrack for Christmas, and was going to be heading for an online purchase as per the suggestions from you kind folk. Online Smyths says :
    762D9F40-F180-424E-BF10-C64C342D3F96.jpeg

    Had to go to get a click and collect Xmas pressie for the little one tonight, a leapfrog laptop, and just went for a passing ramble down the TF aisle……

    Score! Bargain price of £12.99 to boot!
