    Great if you have the room!

    Bargain on the van bros! I saw an MP11 at an equally ridiculous price earlier lol

    RE: Childcare, without wading into muddy politics what is happening isn't going to benefit anyone. Carers or parents. Another crazy decision by ******s running the country that have no clue what they are talking about or dealing with. I would imagine that by the time they talk about rolling it out nationally they'll be gone anyways.

    I hear ya and i would agree, problem tho is fitting it in around my job and my littleboy (both me and the misses are f/t workers) so we pay through the nose in childcare,
    i usually finnish work around 3 (postman) and my legs are nackered,then its me and the boy till 6-7 and honestly by that time im done and really dont feel like going to the gym,
    but a quick 30min workout on a rowing machine at home i can fit it in as and when, would be alot easier (and cheaper in the long run)

    i had a running machine as well and ours turned into a massive coat rack,
    ile just buy a air one for no more then 200 and take it from there:)

    Oooooo my £36 AF 'bee has just arrived! Love the alt mode :D

    Wheels roll perfectly too altho it appears the seats won't stand fully.

    EDIT - I also have to say the hood isn't as bad as it looks when you have it in hand....that being said I'll probably get around to doing the mod sooner or later it just isn't as pressing anymore.

    Plus the Spike you get is far better than the guff you get with MP10......

    Chuffed!

    I've PM'd you. I like what I'm seeing:) 

    Superb in alt mode.
    I really do love this figure.
    Yeah, seats won't fully stand on mine either.

    Will have to have a browse someday soon I think. Once I work out where the biggest ones are :) 

    He does look good, but I think I'm a bit spent out this month, some inconsiderate person sold me Soundwave this month and he just arrived today ;)

    Agreed!
    Alt mode looks so cool!

    :) 
    You'll be happy with it I'm sure, good little figure.

    First impressions on Soundwave?
    I remember when mine arrived, I looked at it for a while, and just though - WOW! I still haven't transformed mine. Put in into a few different poses, then put it on display.

    They'll have to wait until tomorrow, work doesn't like me opening and playing with toys here :) 

    Though they're accepting of gadgets, mainly as we're a tech company I guess!

    Yup :D 

    You won't regret it man, fits in nicely with MP's. I'm actually considering transforming that top shelf all into alt mode because of him now and that was unheard of before.

    Looks like everyone forgot about Beast Wars on Wednesday. Are people still interested in the watch through?

    On another note. Got another WIP custom on the go.

    Still need to paint his thighs in the lighter blue shade and add some orange detail onto him somewhere. Jet Vehicon General was just so bland and since Jetstorm is the Jet Vehicon general, it seemed to make perfect sense, shame Tomy didn't call the Silver the Elite and release one like this as General.

    How old was she at the time? :D 

    I still like some of the old LPs music. Just try not to think about the singer...

    Bollocks, wish I'd read this before PMing you now :lolol

    "Last Train Home" is about the excuse his last girlfriend gave about having to leave at 8.30.

    I just went back and looked at a load of old songs they did, forgot they did a cover of "Shoulder To The Wheel" by Saves The Day. Anyone else like STD (NO YOU STOP RIGHT THERE YOU DIRTY LITTLE MONKEYS) back in the day?

    Balls. The "Cool hidden features nobody knew about" thread I used to enjoy looking at has been taken over by the joyless ******s who seem to infest the rest of these boards. Why do I keep looking outside of here?
