    I'm in the same boat mate, he's not going to be super rare though, he'll turn up for reasonable money soon enough.

    Welcome to the boards, don't venture too far from here. The movie and Prime discussion boards legitimately scare me, and the general discussion area can be borderline mental.
    Also, venturing too far can cost money and time if you stray into the 3rd party or customs area.

    Enjoy!

    Ha - that Countach mold would look good in pink and with flowers on it but matt black? Sinister and fabulous all at once. Do it man!

    Welcome Jack!

    Awesome on Weapon X and Blue Bluestreak. 5-a-side not so awesome, we lost but the boys done well, it was a game of two halves......

    Ouch, break the dude in gently ;)  Of course, having said that, Jack will be scoring obscure MTMTE comic covers once Maz starts :) 

    In other news and about an eon after you all, Bluestreak is a thing of beauty. Perfect alt-mode and robot mode. Very excited about Smokescreen now but can't see how he will surpass old Bluey. :D

    Streak is deffo going be the best of the 3 and for me I think it's because in alt mode he has that classic car look that the other 2 seem to be lacking.

    He was one of the figures I got as a kid (still have him) on birthday.
    I had asked for Inferno, but ended up with Skids. And I'm glad I did.

    Nope, I'm still on it. Can't wait to get Diesel and combine them all.

    Hi Jack.

    They scare you? How do you think I feel? And I have the ability to ban people.

    That's a good point. The classic car vibe it has going on is what elevates it above Prowl imho. Smokescreen has that race car thing though, it will be close. :)

    Agreed. I totally understand it in most cases, but there is a little voice in the back of my head saying 'You are going to charge me a mark up and not even open the damn box for me? And we need retail because...?' *waves at Andy* Love you man! :) 

    I hope its the last one, because I dont give a damn about accuracy. But, six wheels on Drag Strip already puts it ahead of FP for me.

    This is so true! The general (toy) discussion feels like care in the community in action most days! Welcome to sanity, Jack.

    Right, Thursdays or Fridays in the next few weeks.

    Gentlemen, any advance on that? Any Thursday or Friday coming up soon that would be particularly magnificent to drink on?

    If you don't enjoy it, whats the point? I've seen many times when people jump all in like fanatics, and then after 6 months burn out never to be seen again. I remember once a kid shaved his head a couple of weeks after starting at the Shaolin Temple UK, and which point one of the Sifu's (himself not a monk) asked the kid;

    'Are you a monk?'
    'No.'
    'Then why have you shaved your head?'

    Also I personally don't believe in grades or belts. The trouble is the uniform for this school has traditional Kung Fu trousers which are huge (like tents) and held up by rolling them around your waist... but because my belly isn't as flat as it should be and my kicks are very high my trousers have fallen down a couple of times. If I've passed (lol, 'if') I get a sash/belt which means I can hold my trousers up! I'm sure there's some sort of metaphor there.

    As to Pubecon mk2, can we make it a Friday? I have to train on Thursdays!

    Edit
    Also gonna pop in to Orbital around lunchish. Gonna grab a few comics methinks.

    For those meeting up in Leeds on Saturday, keep an eye out for me as I don't know what you all look like. Because it may be cold I will be wearing a bright yellow beanie hat - you can't miss me. If you see me, make yourself known ;) 

    Also, just started using the comics app on my android tablet and downloaded the first 3 issues of MTMTE... it's rather good isn't it? I think I may have to continue reading it. I like the fact that I get the comic without having to add yet more clutter to my spare room.
