@SJW glad to hear you're all safe.
@MyTea Boc I hope you're feeling better.
How did I miss this? Fucking awesome.
Realised that the Baroness' sniper rifle was a wee bit packing clamshell deformed.
Boiled a kettle, and sorted that out.
Once cooled I checked that the grip adjustments (bit more shaving around the trigger guard) were helping her grip to not be so distending.
Then noticed this mega-"gun" did not, in fact, have a gunbarrel muzzle. It is one of the early "it's a blaster" designs after all. Bah.
Since the last bit of Joe I consumed had her nibs blatting high calibre depleted uranium anti-armor rounds (on US home soil no less!) at evil ninja cyborgs, of course this could not stand.
Good job I had a spare 3mm-ish peg left over from Scalett's crossbow's new bolt/s, then.
One muzzle fabricated!
I like your style!
Wa ha ha ha, I do hope so! #TeamPablo

Balance email for G1 Thundercracker and Hound from IDT this morning.
Can't wait for those to arrive - just a shame Thundercracker and Starscream have those comedy oversized Null-rays. I hope an upgrader produces come 'classic' sized ones.
Okay, this month's Altar of Acquisition coming up. There's a few, even something not Legends scale! Don't judge me.

A couple of questions for the hive mind.
1. What is Hasbro’s email for requesting a replacement part after losing the QC lottery. My Slicer’s eco-suit came with 2 right arms.
2. Which GI Joe crossover story/comic is TFC STC Rolling Thunder based on? @Napalm I managed to get one! . He is immense!
It's an unused design by as I recall.
Well, bloody hell @Siege Fan - your free gifts are amazing! Four issues of Shattered Glass comic, numbers 2 - 5! If anyone has a spare copy of the first issue, can they let me know?
Hmmm I've had some stubborn pins like that I've yet to sort, such as the very last one I need to swap FlixLita's left arm with the white one from a sacrificial ErArcee.
I've had things called hex drivers suggested to me which I gather are basically screwdrivers which you can put different heads in, including flat heads (and drillbits) whuch you can then use to apply a steady force to the pin by turning the handle, but I've yet to get one to try yet.
I think heating the plastic might loosen it a bit too, but I've not had a chance to try that either yet.
I've been advised that heating the pin should be a last resort as that can easily go wrong.
Sorry I'm not more help! Maybe someone in Radicons can be of aid?
Nice! Grimlock's midlife crisis/solo adventures colourscheme .
Mind you, I got the vibe that BW Grimlock is kind of like Wolverine, so this can just be his solo comic costume!
That's a bit on the nose!
Edit: Glad you are ok @SJW

If you bought it from Pulse, just use this form:
Good morning All,
It seems I have succumbed to some lurgy doing the rounds. My son is going to get the blame given he had the same symptoms a few days before. Fingers crossed you all manage to swerve such germs.
Thank you all for your kind words and apologies if I missed anyone.
@Insurgent and @Rodentus prime - I’ve had that issue with my car. Funnily enough the blow out didn’t register as a change in tyre pressure/balance.

It seems like my FT Parkour order (from Bombusbee) has got delayed between departing China on the 24th and being handed off to Royal Mail. Hopefully the delay won’t be too long. Anyone familiar with this tracking note? I’ve not seen that description before.
No other bot arrivals yet and did manage to get these two fellas out. I was pretty much all in on Ultramarines but have accumulated a crusader army of Black Templars to aid my small unit of Sisters of Battle and Grey Knights as part of a joint demon hunting army. I must admit I’m finding the BT marines far more fun and their individuality is shining over the Ultramarines from JoyToy.
The BT Marshall has a great sculpt and came packed with plenty of accessories. No immediate defects or QC issues. I’m convinced JoyToy are releasing too many too quickly and as a result we have seen more faulty figures being received. In comparison with other companies, they still have a ridiculously low failed QC rate given their output.
I had to have this BT marine with the lightning claws. If I had Wolverine in the 1:18 or 1:12 scale I would have him face off with brethren Brother Alberic here, Harry Hill style!
@Hobart Paving - I could possibly put together an alter of shame for what I have collected of the JoyToy Warhammer 40k range. Quite embarrassing really and plenty of POs for a lot more.
Marshall and brother Alberic along with 10 other BT marines can be backed up with this little chap:
At this rate my small crusader army will be rivalling the chaps from Macragge.
So, this morning’s arrival.
I had previously sold this little chap - and very much wanted to get the Buzzworthy 86 version, but I refuse to pay in the region of £50 for it as is now (should have pulled the trigger when he was readily available, I know).
However sellers remorse kicked in for the character and sculpt as a whole - he’s a cracking iteration of Cliff, so I’m delighted to have him back. May even see if I can paint / add some labels to make him a little more ‘86’… but we will see.
I don’t have the time to cobble together a group shot for the ‘altar of acquisition’ however I have had a busier March than expected!
I've got all the versions of that mould bar the buzzworthy(?) one with painted windows, and I probably won't be moving them on in the near future unless someone wants to pay ridiculous money for them. Really fun little guys, and I even prefer them to a lot of the MP versions I've seen
