    I believe the idea was to just include the one bot from the Armada team. Assuming an issue with the molds may have meant that was not cost effective.

    Oh I meant a different squad from Armada, apologies for fumbling the name. @Seeaich above got what I meant :) 

    So, anyone interested in Takara Encore Skids?

    Box has seen better days but complete and generally in good knick.

    Unsure of a reasonable price for him as he's not MISB/New which is all that's on eBay.
    Thinking £35 incl S&H (UK).

    DM if interested.

    Ah I see. Thanks :) 
    Hmm presumably would have been in some combination of red, white and blue assuming it would be using the same plastic colours as Sky Lynx... I think the gold on Sky Lynx is painted? I can't remember...

    Though speaking of repaint Astro Squad, does anyone have name suggestions for them as I have the normal version? I gather the colours are based on a Minicon but as I recall the name doesn't really lend itself to being split up.

    It’s well worth it in my opinion. At the weekend I put up a gallery of it on my site, if anyone is on the fence and needs convincing. Unsurprisingly this was loads of fun as Jurassic Park is one of favourite things.

    Puluz 25cm. There’s various brands and they all look the same, probably made in the same factory and a different logo applied.

    Not that I have it but I recommend next size up as a minimum. Especially if you’re just using your phone as it has a bit of a fisheye lens (unless you have a fancy phone).

    @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.
