    Anyone know if the official MP Hot Rod came with a Matrix, or do I have a KO here?

    There's nothing like glaring at a crossword clue, driving yourself mad(der), then finally Googling it to find that 'travelling holdall' = carpet bag. Yes.

    - The Transformers S04E17: 'Revenge of the Monsterbots' (1/5)

    He does look cool, but the complete inability for the robot chest to tab together (as in: it was never even designed to do so) is a constant source of disappointment.

    I think they'd still prefer a moderately successful Spider-film they own completely over a super-successful one they have to share with The Mouse.

    Annoying thing with kids is they just keep expanding everywhere. Physically, emotionally, etc.

    Glad you're excited by the lad, Chris. I'm still going to hold out for a funky redeco of some kind though.

    Divebomb was an absolute joy, but the others... Less so. Ravage was a bit clumpsome and didn't pose well, and Cruellock looked good but barely transformed.

    I hope your fears proved to be unfounded.
    Laudible.

    Towel, sir? Or perhaps you'd fancy something with a dryer gusset?

    Cowboy time!!!!!

    Pistols is so 1800's, lets go for the modern duelling technique of a dance off or tiddlywinks! Winner takes all although you might want to wait until I am King of Scotland.

    King Decepticreeps100 does have a ring to it, all hail King Decepticreeps100 (as @barry sweeps in, with an actual brush, and turns you into a mealie pudding) See, the movie got it all wrong!

    Intriguing update on Legacy Motormaster

    It remains a hard pass for me. Possibly harder now. I can see why showed Dragstrip, and no-one but Dragstrip, first. TF Prime fans, prepare to riot.

    I’ve managed to play for a couple of hours since Friday’s early access. Sadly don’t have time to battle the queues and 2002 lobby errors.

    Enjoy when you get in!

    Of course, it’s nothing unexpected. I understand the disappointment many have had but I wouldn’t have the time to nolife the game anyway these days.

    I’ve been debating the idea of playing FF in during work hours, working in the evening when the queues are higher.

    But I think we all know how that will play out.

    Do you remember that teal-y blue got some milage for Hasbro. They must have over ordered it by the tanker load

    It all makes sense, sorta, except Breakdown :confused: . I don't mind them tinkering around the edges but that just sounds like 'We need the mold again later, sooooh...'
