    Slightly disappointed that the forearms being stuffed in there stuffs up the possibility of modding him for TR and having the cab canopy as an actual TM-manned cab but the Whack-A-Mole head retraction seems like it could facilitate a wee vehicle mode gunnery station, as is it's a perhaps of the "If I see it on Sale Discount/Clearance" and have the whim to experiment from me.

    They're slightly less decent figures from the DJD, but they're still DJD so they're worth owning. The whole team together does look fucking awesome.

    Do mods ever read the constant drivel we spout on about, I wonder if it's as stupid as I feel, realising that we have a monitoring service. Some of the absolute bobbins I can offer up is less than an acquired taste. Apologies silent guardian robots.

    Really like the look of him but it won’t fit my G1 requirements.
    Just wonder how long until we get a new G1 Brawny boy.
    Got to give PvsPr some props for casually dropping Ratchet into the background so you know he has it.

    I assume they take one look at the board and realise the sheer amount of worked needed to tidy up before they shrug shoulders and walk on by.

    The Sphinx meets Mehitabel. Cassette-cat is full of recordings of Archy reading out his poems. (Decepticons are very fond of poetry, don'cha know?)

    Still haven’t overcome how great the very first Snes OST sounded like.



    Such a mood.

    Des bisous !

    Sorry to be the bearer of Bad News, Bobbie, but you just missed a round of Pre-Orders from GWorks, and he's gone back into hibernation so you'll need to keep one eye on his Twitter.

    I remember that one!

    So you say :sly: ;) 

    I have but only some episodes and many years ago when I was a kiddo. I must admit, you lot have had me wanting to look it up at some point as I feel I'd appreciate the humour more now than then :) 

    Ooh nice idea for Silverbolt! Always like a reimagining. As for being military planes I'm not sure if this is something I'm misremembering or just my brain made up but I seem to remember at some point Hasbro or someone trying to claim the Aerialbots are all civilian planes, that the limbs are air display planes... granted those tend to be military aircraft :lol 
    'course in G1 I feel like they somehow tried to pretend Powerglide didn't turn into an A-10 aka one of the toughest war planes out there :lol 

    *Looks at your Username* Checks out :thumb  And I agree! And yes yes, will be on it for Red Dwarf.

    Red Dward? That's a new one! :lol 

    Yes yes I'll watch it...

    Accurate.

    ...BRB need to find a moon prop.

    I feel like this might be Monkey Paw wishing... they heard we wanted Buzzsaw and are now confused we're not happier :lol .

    Ok ok already! :p 

    :lolol  That whole sketch is comedy gold!

    :banghead: :lol 

    Cockpits are valid when we have mini/micro/assorted masters around :D 

    Actually kind of surprised we've not really had Minicons or the like in live action yet. Cogman is probably the closest as an actual character. Not counting Allspark mutated appliances.
    Maybe Squeeks? I'm going purely off TFWiki here mind you.
    Oh wait their take on Wheelie too I guess... though if we talk about human sized bots I guess only 'Alice' the Pretender from RotF and Cogman?

    A few pages back when we had got even further off topic than usual a mod did come in and ask us to TRY to stay on topic and informed us if they cleaned out ALL of the off topic posts in this thread would only be 9 pages :lol . They claimed not to be kidding. :confused: 

    20211202_171728.jpg Rung checks the swooshability of his Ark toy.
    I love that that face also works for making wooshing noises :D  TBH I think I'll keep that as his 'default' face :lol  it amuses me!

    They can't even decide on an arbitrary point in time to go back to, because they can see @doucoo might visit us in the present day from any point in time, and that'd mean starting from page 1.

    As pointed out, that'd be a lot of purge work.


    I also like to think that all the USA mods like to drop in and marvel at our dry British wit and secretly enjoy our quirky sense of humour :lol .

    Or something...:confused2

    Finally got my refund from Sonner today! Unsure if its in response to my angry email last night (actually a normal email but with the phase 'This is not acceptable' in there) or if thats just when they were gonna get round to it anyway, but who cares.

    Will always remember the night i got in from work to a surprise Titan Scorponok delivery from them, but kind of like a once great relationship that went sour.
