    :lolol  Priceless.

    I couldn't have said it any better myself.

    I remember when I got back into TF's and online. It was so much fun back then. Now I just feel like I'm circling the drain.

    Yeah, i think if you're into Lego you have to get a custom made frame case... It'll cost less and look allot cooler i reckon.... Seen some people have made for their SW minifigs, they look better than the small boxes...

    Hi.
    Regarding your good news, congratulations! The Fort Max bit made me laugh! :)  Good luck there.

    The bad news bit - Pain in the arse customs charges. You've had a long wait for your parcel, finished with an extra payment. I've got the Sideswipe figure already. I hope you like it. I think it's a great figure that looks amazing in either mode. I've read loads about the scale sheet/graph thingy, but for me Sideswipe is a tiny bit short. Overall though, great figure.

    Just finished assembling The Battle of Helm's Deep (£49.99 at Tesco!). Good lord, it's sodding enormous. I have no idea where I'm putting it.

    Jebus down to 50 wingwangs now,
    I pretty much check daily on lord/hobbit lego prices but never seen helms for 50,
    I too have recently built helmsdeep and for some reason i prefer how it looks without the exploding wall and add on wall sections,
    Im contemplating using the bricks from the moria set to alter helms deep, make it bigger but I've no idea on where to start, Im just not creative enough,

    In other news....
    Ding....ding, seconds out round 2
    Im gonna be a dad again,
    Baby is due end august, should be easier 2nd time around and not as expensive, hopefully lol
    So i may have some unexpected/forced sales to make on my masterpiece/i-gear/tfc combiners collection,
    Nothing needs selling just yet, but you lot will be the first to know.

    Congrats Wasp :)  Been there, done that; best of luck to you all...

    I've just seen the front page, Shattered Glass BW? Really? We get a resurrection of Machine Wars, a real oppurtunity to incorporate and expand it and they give us this?

    Whoever signed this off at Hasbro needs taking outside and giving some serious developmental feedback...

    There seems to be a mould problem with Henkei Thundercracker the little ridges in the arms that hold his guns in his shoulder are all worn down and for that reason the guns don't fit well without lots of nail polish.
    Ironically the CHMS one is typically a lot better.

    I'm debating between eggs on toast or pancakes for breakfast. Then theres always marmite on toast. I think Ninja turtles has warped my ideas of crumpets. It thinks cricket thanks to Raphael' little exchange of banter with Casey jones!

    What I find annoying is no more saturday morning cartoons! So I'm going through my DVD collection, currently on Galaxy Rangers if anyone remembers that!

    Mould degradation. Later runs (Generations Thundercracker etc) used a new set of moulds.amusing that the Fakey McFake version doesn't suffer from that issue though.
