    Appreciated!

    Seeing someone you would die for go off with someone you can't be 100% trustworthy of is flippin' hard, I know we can all keep in touch a lot easier these days with social media being what it is, but there's always that element of doubt that can eat away at you. I hope you're able to get through it and your daughter has some nice stories to tell you when you next see her!

    Looks great, hope so, as I just looked again at how much he cost me! :O
    I really wish 3P would stop forcing a spot for a logo though as I think he could use a bigger Autobot space. Plus did he need a swappable spot? Just peel off and stick another on.

    Thanks man. And fear not - I always have a million things to write, figures to play with, games to play, books to read and things to watch to keep me going. I'll make good use of the time.

    Cheers guys.

    @banjoted I really sympathise with your situation, I couldn't imagine being apart from my three, but as others have said I'm sure your daughter will have a good time, and will love to tell you all about it when she comes home. :) 
    Take care.

    A question for @banjoted and @Sixo - With FT Phoenix's stand attachment, did you find that once you replace the adaptor section on - say - Sovereign/Soar's stand to match the Phoenix figure, it can only support his weight when the jet is pointed downwards? I tried installing the adaptor the other way but it won;t fit into the stand that way.

    Gonna make for some unfavourable angles in jet mode photography, but it is what it is.

    All the best

    I don't recall having that issue, to be honest... I did check my pics too, and it seems that I was able to shoot a couple at a straight angle.

    I am presuming the retail version will come with a full stand, but this is why I am always pleased to have a couple of those flightpose.com stands too.

    Well, you definitely get +Dad points for being able to step back from the situation and treat it logically, rather than letting emotions get in the way. As you say, it's a great opportunity for your daughter. Anyway, like you say, this is a safe spot on the interwebz, so you know we got your back.

    I simply needed to tighten the screw on the adaptor, problem solved!

    Thanks again everyone. Love you x

    Mr Amateur Hour over here only found the stand adapter as he was packing Phoenix away for his return journey home.

    So I was thinking Bout the UW Baldigus/Ruination bunch that's just coming out now, and thinking:

    • Huh, finally got the articulated toys they deserved back in 2001.
    • 2001 was... wow, 16 years ago. Wow.
    • But still, way too late to be using G1 moulds, right?
    • The original Combaticons were from way back in 1985, which was...
    • Oh my god, 16 years earlier.
    • TIME IS A CRUEL AND SPITEFUL GOD TO MURDER US SO SLOWLY AND GENTLY

    Going to cruelly gloss over the far weightier issues of family and perishing in the vortex of time in this thread and just say it:

    That movie voyager Megatron? Woof.
