    Gotta admit, having recently started enjoying the movie the best figures, I am liking this new Megatron. It actually has a decent alt mode.

    Sadly I fear it'll suffer from shite paint apps like most of the movie figures did. Might have to wait until Japan paints then properly if that is the case.

    Dip it in three melted Callipos, call it Sunstorm, and this cross-eyed goon is gonna buy it.

    Judging by 2016 and 2017 so far, not quite so slowly and gently as one might prefer!

    Not chipped in with the conversation about your circumstances, @banjoted, there's nothing I can properly offer as a non-parent seems a bit condescending/arrogant/facile to spout advice/reassurance to an actual parent under the circumstances but well done you and positive vibes nonetheless!

    Made a literal milk run to the nearest, usually-even-shittier-for-TFs Tesco before Sunday closing and, lo & behold, they actually had some RID Legions and on offer at a hair under a Fiver.
    Now £7 quid was no deal but under a Fiver?!
    Of course this mad wee bastard was coming home with me in the shopping bag with a 4-pinter in it!

    He did need a few tweaks one I freed him though...

    I kept having mishaps with that damned right tail light though, after the left went a doddle (& freehand too!) after smudging/squidging it yet another time before it had dried, I just scraped off and masked it with tape...
    ...and it's STILL not as neat as the freehand one but it'll do, goddammit!

    Frog mode also needed some finishing moves...

    The frog's got his throat and is ready to toady off treasure-hunting!

    Nice Sharpie job @Seeaich :thumb  I feel baffled by legion Springload's paint app on his front grill. Tbh, I would have preferred they used black paint on the top half rather than silver. It just seems a schoolboy error.

    Queuing up alcohol and snacks, the dominoes number is on speed dial, getting ready for Wrestlemania to kick off. Folks who I usually watch it with are over there this year so I'm all by myself.

    Might set Metroplex, Fort Max and Devastator up on the couch with a beer each and pretend I'm not...all by mysellffff

    Y'know, I didn't think of that! My brain went straight to "that'll need fixing" instead after spotting it on first transformation.
    Now that you point it out it really is totally daft, when they could have matched the plastic colour with I'd wager cheaper paint too! If they're gonna cheap out on paint as they seem to be doing with RID (and they really are pushing it with £18 Warriors with barely any), do it with a bit of common!

    TR Cosmos (I ain't missing out on him again!),
    TR Missfire and Slugslinger (Triggerhappy's got to have someone to hang out with.), and more Titan masters!!!!!

    I managed to stay awake through both the HOF and Takeover so hopefully a third night in a row won't kill me. I'm already feeling sleep trying to catch me out though...tempting me.

    Takeover was great. No shenanigans, just cracking matches all the way through and a really tight show all in. The tag match will go down as one of the best of the year and it's just a shame they didn't finish that with DIY or the Revival going over. Mania will be too long, with too many shenanigans but I am looking forward to seeing where The Rock turns up and what other surprises they have. If I could have just one thing it would be that Kenny Omega or Kaz Okada would show up, but being as both are so deeply involved in NJPW at the mo there's zero chance of that happening. Chances are I think they'll trot Hogan back out, Finn Balor will attack Triple H with Mick Foley also getting involved, HBK will do something and that's about it.

    God bless 24 hour Domino's.

    Almost three hours without a post? Thus I conclude that @RobotoChan inflicting Bay on the thread has killed it.
