    You'll get plenty of blood, murder is fine, but you won't get boobs - Our cousins across the pond are terrified of the nipple.

    Stick one, or even worse two, of those in a film for more than a few seconds and you going straight to NC-17 territory.

    Nah the b&m is awful quality, literal poundland soap bottle tier guaranteed one of those ball joints is going to break before long.

    The starcats one by comparison is great and a solid official levels of quality build if you can track it down on aliexpress or the like and usually goes pretty cheap.

    Oh yeah, I definitely prefer "mature" to mean "grown up stories" rather than "ooh, look, blood, tits, and tits with blood on them, possibly in the shape of tits!"

    I remember Torchwood's first season with head-in-hands ;)

    Primus knows why the instructions say to peg in the beast mode legs, why disable articulation

    Have any of the recent Commander figures been reissued?

    Just wondering how likely Armada OP will get a reissue or repack?

    Jetfire (twice?), Skylynx and Motormaster have, so pretty likely i reckon.

    Did I read that TF: One is linked to the Bay movies while also being yet another soft reboot? While Earthspark is still a thing?

    adf58c5b-9ad4-4d5b-90a7-e14ceef52cc4_text.gif

    They need to ditch Bay to get anywhere. 'One' really is their last shot whether they realise it or not. Bay-linked productions have pissed in the well so often the Joe crossover could sweep the Oscars and only diehards would care. They've made less money with each movie and that's not even factoring in

    Higher budgets.

    More expensive cinema tickets.

    Inflation.

    Basically the audience has dwindled because it's still 50 Shades of Bay. Even the RotB box office numbers were massively misleading for the above reasons. A hard reboot is needed and 'One' really should have been it.

    Yeah he is. My favourite of the few Energon toys I have, Snow Cat is a close second. I've gotten a lot of figures these past few weeks but this guy is the one I keep coming back too, and now that I have Legacy Cybertron Starscream all I can think about is a new Energon update to complete the trio.

    Motormaster is 36 and Legacy Blaster a tenner at GAME. They've also got full price Code Red and other crossovers they'll eventually have to discount :p

    He's here. Hectic day so just put him together before I go.

    Box was smaller than I thought. Smells of pvc like a NECA figure. Very solid when all is tabbed in.

    Was super amused by your gun smuggling Wheeljack pic. Just opened mine but my copy is annoying as Hades at a pedigree pet show. :rolleyes: 

    Magmatron looks nice! Not everyone has wings on their head. He should be proud. :cool:
