    Probably the main criticism of MMC that I have is that they've made all 3 modes look great, hows a chap ment to chose?:confused: 

    Yep, last episode I watched was Nature calls, I will make a point of watching Megatron Rising at the very least.
    I think along came a Spider was the most memorable/enjoyable episode for me.
    And Blitzwing so far my favourite character.

    In regards to the suit...........rolled up sleeves or not rolled up sleeves?

    I'm surprised I haven't seen photos using MP10 to reenact images from the Prey storyline in the comics.

    Reenacting that story is the first thing I'm doing when it's Leo-opening time!

    Of course, to do it properly would require all five Predacons, and a suitable treeline. :) 

    Thoroughly enjoyed the Citizen Stack comic, of course it is made of enablium sulphate but I shall resist! And dream of MP Magnus. :)

    I've not seen a 3rd party Razorclaw next to the Botcon one either.

    Just scored me a Beast Hunters deluxe Prowl in TRU Newbury park. Was the only one there, very surprised to see him......impressed with the design, mold certainly works for Prowl.

    ......and my faith in humanity was repaid when I forgot to take my credit card at TRU (in a rush!) and I came back an hour later to find the staff had kept a hold of card, awesome!

    He is a nice use of the Smokescreen mold, shame they left the references to the net and armour in the instructions.

    He's only 1 per case, which is why Home Bargains only seem to have one of him out at a time.

    I'm looking forward to the TFCC Subscription Barricade using the Prowl version of the figure.

    That was really fantastic, I really enjoyed that and the art as well. Looks like Stack-goers are going to get a seriously memorable package.

    It also reminds me how desperately I'd like to have new TF comics to read, RiD and MTMTE 28 can't come soon enough.

    All the best

    :lol 

    I think Super Dimensional Fortress Macross and Macross Plus is where it's at, mate. Subtitles all the way.

    And, Macross "Do You Remember Love?" is epic too, basically summarises the original series in movie format.

    Glad you guys liked the Citizen Stack comic, shame they "fixed" my work and contracted "I am" to "I'm" and ruined a Haiku in the process :( 

    First person to catch all 78 in-jokes, nods, references and easter eggs included in the comic gets a copy of X-Men 1.5 on DVD*

    I'm pretty tired of being excluded from competitions such as this on account of my limited intelligence.

    Morg said you were the man to ask :) 

    I am on episode 4, its getting worse!

    I've been eying up some figs to buy too but they appear equally confusing and in some cases eye watering expensive

    If you're into the original 1/55 scale Jetfire-a-likes, drop me an email if you still have my addy and I'll talk your ear off!

    You may even learn how to avoid landing yourself something as crystal mint as this!

    Wow, I think I had a tiny third-rate KO of that (or at least it had a similar deco so it may have been meant to be the same mech; the mold wasn't the same) back when I was a kid! As I recall it spent most of its time being beaten up by Decepticons....

    All this Valk stuff is making me recall that I still don't have a Jetfire....it's a bit like realising you're hungry. :)
