    Hi all, got some new things up on the eBay, mostly smaller WFC stuff this time. As always I'm happy to do deals for forum members, so let me know if you see anything you like!

    darkfusion333_6 on eBay

    Also got three Slitherfangs besides the one here I'm looking to sell, unfortunately they have some cracks in the clear plastic, so if that's not an issue shoot me a DM and I'd be happy to talk further :)

    It does appear to be US-centric, and also infers that they aren't slipping either GI Joe Vs. The Transformers or The Headmasters Mini in chronologically, so there's gonna bE a couple of weird narrative jumps/skips - it really seems that the TF compendiums can't catch a break, there's always some borking of the running order, like Hachette running "Dinobot Hunt" before completing the first Shockwave-centric arc with a captured beheaded Prime, GAH!

    I love this set in all its colourisationisms, and I think I have those 2 plastic bits at the bottom of the box somehow, as I've never been near a boxed one, what are they for?
    Thanks.
    (I have the upgrade kit on my one on display).

    Ridiculous photos from a weekend full of TF shenanigans?
    doesn't sound like something I'd do...

    They are spreader bars, it's an early concept which was later developed into Earthrise.

    Love it when you can properly put a G1 combiner together...

    ...might have tried to create a robot ice-cube with the packaging of a cheap Reaction Reflector from One above..

    No, not bothered what she thinks, not like she is going to go all 'Chainsaw man' is it"?

    I believe they've said they want to include Marvel UK too, but this 1st volume is just the US #1-#44. 2nd volume might show some insights into further plans?

    glyos box from america arrived.

    the gylos people were cool enough to include a free mordle, which is like a soft rubbery goblin thing.

    my american friend was cool enough to include a free motu snake man at arms and an alternators sideswipe :eek: 

    even without that, this would still be a very good day. this robot fella is the ideal desk toy. hes hefty, glows in the dark and has 38 parts, so theres hundreds of alternate builds.
    great craic if your boss lets you use a hair dryer at your desk to separate the parts.

    Was looking at that on TFWiki last night (I’m updating my spreadsheet/making the mother of all lists which I hope would do you proud @Hobart Paving) and I thought @rikkomba has that.

    He’s magnificent.
