    Morg, sorry to hear of woes. You know there are many ways you can reach me, broseph. Let me know of any assistance I can be.

    Banjoted, probably useless to say so, but have a good stag-do.

    Cheers everyone for the good wishes.

    I've spent the morning playi...uh inspecting these two. Very under-rated figures. Plus a gold star for me for taking photos that aren't bloody awful for once!

    Dear Dan, Please please PLEASE keep having fun, MUCH MUCH MORE FUN!

    Ta.

    Hope you're warm, dry, comfy and next week the wheel turns for the better for you, Morg.

    Modding done right. Oh so right.

    Now someone make a Pathblaster so the moment of highest tragedy can be re-enacted (also Belated :bday  , Neuta!)

    Since stickering him up with G1 detailing, I've re-discovered the joys of RTS Tracks. I'd initially considered removing the Tribal Gubbins but mixing and matching CW Mirage turned out so well I thought I'd gamble with just whacking his old crest on top.

    [​IMG]

    NOICE! As a Bonus I also discovered the G1 Black Light Gun I gave him slides and stays in quite well under the nose of Fight Mode too!

    A CHUG design that has stood the test of time, still don't like those feet though.

    Vanessa, I've PM'd you about Blackarachnia!

    Steve, they're two of the Dinoking guys from Victory. Japanese exclusive combiner from 1989, had pretender shells, in Europe we had a different coloured version of the bots that combined into Monstructor. These are the 3P updates from FansProject - Dinoichi and Dinoni (Dino one and two)

    I think.

    All the best
    Maz

    I'm an even more rubbish Transformers fan than Stevil, because I have no idea who the original characters are either.
    :eek: 

    Edit - Thanks Maz, seen PM and replied :thumb

    I know the feet have to be skinny for transformation but those 2 toe greeblies ruin a perfectly sleek looking foot.

    [​IMG]

    I other news I popped into town to scope out prices for a keyboard bellows brush to give my displayed TFs a decent anti-dust once-over but was confused on exiting B&M's to realise I was carrying THIS:

    DSC_0001.jpg

    Now I promised myself I'd wait patiently for Titans Return Soundwave but I couldn't turn down a Soundwave in perfect scale (for me) with CW Megs for only not quite six of your whole Earth pounds.
    B&M are taking a clear swipe at Smythe's, the shelf label even quotes their price for comparison.
    Sadly, or maybe luckily, there were no Roadbusters otherwise I might have ended knee deep in them to assemble an arsenal. The larger B&M's still had a shelf price of £12.99 and I felt too cheeky doing a price check already having a bargain in hand. I'll wait and see.

    Wowsers. For six Billy Crystal Immortal Skeletons, I could be tempted for a Roadbuster or a Whirl.

    In the end, space will do for me. I've probably got to admit I will never get another voyager-class figure. Not without getting rid of one.

    The only problem I foresee is me ending up spending £15-£20+ getting a G1 Concussion Cannon for him. D'OH!

    MMC Spartan really is a joy to pose and hold. I found the shoulder clip kept coming unplugged with every arm movement, but I think it was not correctly set in pace.

    SOme limits to leg articulation at the thigh, but he can do the run, he can kneel...bloody lovely figure. Quite a matte finish on the yellow that really works too. Head sculpt is marvellous.

    All the best
    Maz

    Hi Guys, just thought I'd stop by to say hello. I've been a member for ages but I'm new(ish) to posting on the boards.
