    MHZ Ultimate Commander - SS ROTB Prime OSKO - just arrived from ShowZ. Dude looks like Zippy The Pinhead :/

    The tiny noggin doesn’t help the oversized smokestacks look any smaller either :S

    Inspired by @Lothar Hex and his photos of the OSKO. I'm not two-shedding, just enjoying! :cool:

    It's a great design. Wish I could have afforded the original Nox at the time but this guy suffices. Plus dual chainsaws is always cool. Think I've settled on my preferred display option too.

    Hi folks. Long time, no post.

    Bought my first TF in what seems like forever yesterday:

    Couldn't turn him down for £12 from Smyths.

    2024 so far,

    1.Newage Wheeljack (EX)
    2.Dr Wu Sandstorm
    3.Mech Fans Toys Astrotrain
    4.Newage Ratchet v2

    Next robot might be a rare official purchase in the form of Studio Series '86 Wreck-Gar but if not it'll probably be Newage Slag (cartoon) and the Newage Windcharger/Tailgate set which have been pre-ordered for a while.

    Ditto, nice to hear from you mate.



    Been messing about as usual
    Situation-wise, its all....

    "Optimus, camouflage, CAMOUFLAGE....oh, why do I bother...."?

    IMG_20240324_111108_0.jpg

    but Scenario-wise, its all.....

    Screenshot_20240325-124257~3.png

    ..that was a lot of (admittedly, quickly done...) effort, I'm glad it was worth it...

    ...oh, what am I doing with my life?

    ...wait a minute, I'm at work, so its all good.

    Laters.

    Oh, wait, here's some boot fodder, glad I was right in my suspicion that lionboy was a TF.

    IMG_20240324_113420_8.jpg

    Laters again.

    I feel like the Thrilling 30 IDW Springer looks leagues better than the Wreck n Rule one I have in every single mode.

    I bought Trashmaster and Scrapheap (both on cheap) for my son and just had a great weekend making Junkasaurus out of the two of them.
    Will pick up Crash bar too but it's not even essential to make a convincing Junkasaur. Recommended!

    That second picture really, really reminds me of the Red Viper from the Manta Force line. I take it there's zero link between Manta Force and Diaclone in any fashion and it's just one of those weird cloud pattern type things in my brain?

    Edit: I looked up a picture of it, and I think in my memory I've actually mashed together the Red Viper and the Black Barracuda, as the RV doesn't look as much like that pic as I first thought, other than the lovely red colour. D'oh!
