    Yeah it stabilised the non-doglegged jet fanmode by tabbing the legs together to sub for the stock crotch tabs.
    Having now experience the figure at £14.99, I suggest folks wait until he is £5-£8 tops! :p

    New shoes successfully broken in....walked an hour to the cafe on the Nutbrook Trail, had a hot chocolate and a bacon sandwich plus a pasty to take with me for my tea before a nice walk back via the nature area at Straws Bridge on the edge of town where I nodded to the swan lurking near one of the bins and he let me pass without incident. I won't tempt fate by attempting to put anything in that bin without it's permission ;) 

    All very nice and chilled and I found it easier to relax in a public place by myself than if it was in the middle of town so I'm probably going to make it my regular routine for Fridays as they're only open Friday-Sunday and whilst the weather's nice I might even take a book with me as there's plenty of spots where I could do that and not be disturbed....reading is something I want to rediscover as I free myself from the spell of the medications that were killing my ability to concentrate and to that end I've got a new book about Andre The Giant on the way which I'm looking forward to because the WWE had nothing to do with it so it'll be much closer to actual history instead of their version which'll be about as truthful as a Hulk Hogan interview.

    The new shoes have a lot better ankle support than my trainers and there was none of the rubbing around the ends of my toes that I'd been experiencing that had caused several blisters so looks like they'll work out nicely for £36.99! :) 

    Robots = I've now had a look at Core Class Tasmania Kid and didn't immediately burst out laughing so I might give it a go at some point.

    @Retrograde,
    With you on Modulok, the Horde shelf is one of my favourite Origins displays so it'd be nice to get him before too long!

    The combining gimmick was my favourite thing about these, despite its actual awfulness...I mean, how many arms does one robot need?
    It may even have turned me into the combiner-simp that I am today.

    Love me a boot, the Sunday one is the highlight of my toy week, and my visit to our little seaside afterwards for a stone skim and a coffee (the boy gets Pepsi and a hot dog), is the non-toy highlight too!

    Buying all of CW Bruticus in ASDA seems like a lifetime ago now...because it was.

    I digitally sign up to this petition.

    Don't stress, he takes 3 days off for TFN, so slips back again, we're safe till the end of the year.

    The word 'dribbled' in the sentence after those particular names was very well timed.

    Although I accept the niche location, the best boot sale I have ever experienced is, like the excellent cheese, Cheddar.

    This is a very clever social commentary quip, nicely done.

    Bumble-rack and Bumble-ruin innit?

    That last pic has this energy:[​IMG]

    Due to system issues dept at work hasn't been able to do any work all week. However we "need" one person on site to man the phones and tell people we can't do shit. This afternoon is my turn. Sat in our part of the office on my own so I brought my latest purchase in for company. Transformers Prime Cyberverse (no not that one) Predaking.

    Well, that's just Prime.

    Waiting on a new head for DLX ROTB Prime, then we'll properly have him out and put through his paces.

    Trashmaster for £17.49? Oh, go on then!

    Courtesy of the Entertainer. They also had night-ops Simba for the same price.

    None of the chase SWMGS vehicles to be found unfortunately.
