    Have a browse of gaming and/or gfx card forums. Football forums can be just as bad and I never went back to he-man.org as I couldn't bare it but tbf tfw is probably as bad, if not worse now.

    Everywhere has utter bells, especially where there is a choice. It's just the way it is.

    Tru dat. Every. Single. Hobby.
    Par example...



    Gather the good souls to your circle, punt the sh*tbirds into a good Ka-BLOCKing. Ya don't bring anything to the table, ya don't get to sit at it.

    Speaking of sh*tbirds, what kind of motherlickin' idiotfool could love a stupid, unposeable brick of a figure that by it's very existence is an affront to modern toy design, I ask you, eh? Eh?

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Alright, the sarcasm isn't entirely justified as clearly I am a rare beneficiary of fantastic scissor-hip QC but I really think that the Breakdown/SS mould is a tiny bit of grand design, overly maligned due to the prevalence of said loose hips sinking his ship, and the more frequent these days Hasbro paint deco fail also exacerbated by the hivemind echo chamber.
    Yes, it's true he's got the ol' tiny thigh/anime shin problem, the plastic colour could literally have been a bit more solid for it's own good and the lower legs are indeed hollow but for that CW Sunny gives an alternately & additionally articulated combiner arm, the only extra ankle articulation besides the Rook variations and the prettiest of the modern Sunny faces. He's a premium paintjob and solid hip QC away from being a classic, if only Hasbro hadn't gone with that godawful Alternator-ish chest plate and just given him & Breakdown a faux canopy chest from the start - I mean it's not like it hid the remould/re-use plan even as that was obvious from the off with the HFG and it's additional integration points!?!

    Basically what I'm saying is, everybody's wrong but me.

    Picked up Hotrod on my lunch break. Was ringing up at £18.97! Luckily the sales assistant fixed the price for me so no worries.

    Bank Holiday, the wife and kids are out... So obviously it's time to take toys into the garden. (Apologies for the billion pictures.)

    Bit of lippy and some off white in the right places and it makes all the difference!

    Can almost ignore the lack of ankle tilt.......some nice red specs would be the cherry on the cake though.

    Luckily I don't frequent most of what you've listed and I gave up on He-man.org long ago because it was actually pretty dull, but nowhere else I do frequent (toys/films/general Berkeley) has quite the same objectionable, neuralgic and baffling lack of tolerance to dissenting views as is in evidence in several threads currently on this Board.

    That complete strangers feel able to talk down to somebody/anybody about their finances - even after it's been explained in painful detail why - over the purchase (or not) of a FUCKING TOY is beyond unreasonable and into unbalanced.

    This place has that and I've never experienced it anywhere else. Thank Goodness. Luckily it isn't in every thread by any means, and it does seem to be a subset of MP Collecting that is frankly the worst. That anyone could express admiration for a writer/poster then swing that around 180° on the basis of a couple of comments tends to say more about that person than any of the crap they are directing.

    Prediction: the Toxic Fandom thread will be too toxic to enter again, without any hint of irony.

    But the dude hectoring in psuedo-scientific fashion about MP Dinobot Fail!!! Is worth a read and chuckle, even if only to highlight precisely what I've been ranting about.

    Forgot about the Marvel v DC fanboys too!

    Yeah that thread is hilarious, I can't figure out if he's a troll or if he's really pissed off though.

    I think the tragic thing is that guy is for real.

    Marvel V DC is pretty easy to rise above (and ignore) when you like both. And I do.

    Thank fuck Porn doesnt require this sort of debate. It's all tongue in cheek.

    With the last of my PayPal stash I have just ordered the X-Trans Trailbreaker. I now will have three MP-a-like Trailbreakers. And one of them is Keef.

    I am everything I stand against. I am a Monster. Punish me.
