    That was Drunk Vertex, this time I'm sober*. And the running robed rascals fleeing fearful flames (as if directed by one Michael B.) do indeed enthuse me greatly. :) :D :cool:

    They haven’t even bothered with a due date. Maybe I should email to cancel, they’ve had more than enough time to get one in stock and I’m sure he will be in January sales

    419 Eater gets on teevee! Top stuff. :lol 

    Speaking of scams, there's a fake email going around pretending to be from the NHS, about ordering test kits "for the omicron variant" of Covid. Playing on peoples' fears in an uncertain time, disgusting. :mad: :(

    Stuck on a slow train to/from hell with low battery and intermittent internet.

    Anyone else seen this cheapo cement mixer guy in Entertainer? Trying to think who he could be repurposed into.

    They put out a post the other day saying not to bother asking them about due dates, just to check the website.
    I also notice they're now charging 15% for cancelled preorders unless they're delayed 3 months or more. I don't remember this being the case originally, but I may be mistaken.
    Rodimus was due in September, so you're probably safe anyway, and they refunded both of mine without a charge.

    I popped into the Salisbury store today on the off chance they might have had a few black Friday bits left, but they didn't, and I may be imaging things, but it seemed like there was a little less stock there than there used to be.

    Always Sunny s15 ep 1 and 2 dropped last night. Strong start to the season.

    If you've never watched Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia you owe it to yourself to give it a watch. After Red Dwarf of course.

    Begging time:

    Would anyone who has ordered extra of the Haslab Star Saber be willing to put me in line for one?

    I held off at the time as it was over my limit for a figure, but since that has been blown out of the water I really desperately have a hard case of regret and FOMO.

    Any offers greatly appreciated!

    Consistently amazing show, thanks for the heads up on the new series!

    Decepticons Forever, indeed. And I haven't transformed a brand-new cassette-cat since 1984. Great release, too dear of course but tickled that they made it.

    That BeeBrawn looks rather nice doesn't he! And if I'm not mistaken his clear plastic "window" (I'm going to say they have those on Cybertron so they can give rides to the tape-troops and other mini minions) is actually a separate piece, and they haven't just molded his whole chest in clear and painted it? Goodness me.

    Also @bcm77 a B2 Silverbolt might be very nice, he could get redeco'd as a properly huge Bomber Megs, the better to batter Starscream (loved that issue, all the more so as Screamer was drawn as MP-3).

    Are MMC Foxwire and Ni any good? As it seems Mors is not an option anywhere I’ve looked but Omegalock have the pet and Nickel, I’ve seen a few video reviews where Nickel seems a little awkward and after Cynicus broke within 20 mins I’m a little hesitant to buy without more intelligence…..
