    You can't kill The Metal
    The Metal will live on
    Waruders tried to kill The Metal
    But they failed, as they were smite to the ground
    Soldiers tried to kill The Metal
    But they failed, as they were stricken down to the ground
    Legions tried to kill The Metal
    Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
    They failed, as they were thrown to the ground

    Ah yeah

    In a thuddingly predictable way.

    And I'd always considered this a place of sober reflection.
    The very idea that something like Titan's Return is the product of a conservative mind is, in a thuddingly predictable way, wild. Some fuckers just love the sound of their own clucking.

    On which note, I'm told the 'MP line rebranding/ending forever' thread is a ride.

    I just meant Moira's accent.
    As interesting as it is that they're using material from Morrison's run, I find the way they're using it even more interesting. If this was just some ffwd rehash of E for Extinction I wouldn't be nearly as invested as I suddenly find myself. Mega-Sentinels and psychic affairs are just devices to be grabbed. It's clear they have a more ambitious agenda than just adapting old stories to animation. Killing off Gambit like that was really leftfield. And seeing a nation being destroyed like that in a cartoon was really something considering what's been on the news since October.

    I don't start work until 10am and, at least in the mornings, work from home.

    I suspect that Graph was made before Marvel became a Bomb factory.

    I would have gone straight for Power Baser, if I didn't already have Delta Poser and Thunderc*nt

    Prowl should be here on Saturday so it'll be intresting to see how that compares with the original Animated one which I had at the time of release along with a few other Animated figures even though I only ever saw the cartoon in a very abbreviated way as the You Tube clips at the time split episodes into several parts.

    Managed to walk all the way along the Erewash Valley Trail to the destination I'd been aiming for (Trent Lock) in about 2 hours 25 minutes so I'll have to have a look at the map to see how far the distance is.

    I slightly mistimed it as I got there way before either of the pubs opened so I doubled back towards town, went down the street I lived for the first 6 years of my life and had a look at my old house, then walked to Tesco where I used their facilities before getting the bus home.

    Pleased I got there and ended up walking for about 3 hours and 35 minutes total and saw a vole, some squirrels, various birds and said hello to some nice dogs and their owners! :) 

    Should the opportunity arise in the future I'll happily laugh in the face of any doctor that tries to tell me they know what's best for managing my issues because they clearly don't.

    Maybe I'll always have to take one or two medications for things, I'm getting older so that goes with the territory, but I'm freeing myself from the spell of the ones that were stopping me having any ability to change my situation for the better.

    Kinda (kinda? More like VERY) annoying that his Nebulan Buddies came in a separate pack. Also kinda annoying they didn't actually unlock his Transformations like proper Powermasters...

    Hmm. Missing Link Doubledealer?

    I’ve contacted the Official Rankings Board and they apparently had no idea it existed!

    They suggest cutting out a picture of it and sticking it between DX9-mini and MP-G. :)
