    Yup, there's been a little discussion about him in the TR thread yesterday (or was it two days ago ? 3 ? Who cares ? Alright) and I absolutely agree with you: He's a great toy.
    Love the jet mode. And Robot mode is just so perfect for my LL chug crew.
    Also, one of the bots I transformed the most the past few months. The transformation being so much cool.
    And I too, wasn't sure about him at first.

    The new Reprolabels/Toyhax sticker set for TR Megs looks pretty spiffing.

    I think I've only got TT Godbomber and MP Dirge incoming. Not sure what'll happen with the two TR boxsets in terms of UK availability, but assuming the worst I'm only really looking forward to Trypticon and the last two waves of Titans Return. With Power of the Primes probably not landing until December it's a bit scary to think that might be my 2017. Can MMC at least get another DJD member out?

    :lol 

    But yeah, and to be honest, just the fact that she could win, the simple thought that this is a possibility and not a fantasy like in the days of her scumbag daddy (and she's no better. Worst even, since people do believe she's not him), and even the fact that if she loses she could score a more than 40%, all that, is already a fucking disaster.
    Not a surprise by any means, hélas, far right have done their work since, oh, the last 12 years, but still...
    Well, disaster for disaster, best to get the one where she's not in control.

    Dammit I swore to myself I'll never go into politics here!
    This campaign have been an absolute catastrophy since too long now. And the remaining days won't be a dignity parade.

    ... Quick, a good news ! Well Nippon Yassan have FINALLY shipped my package. \o/

    Honestly, part of me hope it will stay calm like this. I mean, if not, I just don't know how could I pay for FT Omega Supreme and I so much want that thing despite not having the place for him at all.
    I say "calm" but... LG Godbomber, Trypticon, boxsets, TR wave5, wave6, LG Kup, Hot Rod, Gnaw, MP Artifre, new MP Primal, MP Dinobot (if 2017), MMC Tyrantron, MT Contact Shot, MT Downbeat, FT Phoenix, FT Springer, whoever make the best Seaspray, possibly FT Trailbreaker... Ok not that calm.

    *clicks fingers* LG Hot Rod! I knew I'd missed someone.

    >ahem< sorry, you were saying?

    Yeah, I must admit having a quiet spell does give me a good chance of clearing a bit more money off the old credit card. I'm kind of glad there's no big 3P things grabbing my attention

    Yup. It's like that formidable coincidence of Bandai starting to make shitty One Piece P.O.P. figures at the more or less same time I restart to collect TF again.
    ... Why did I write "yup" ? It's not yup at all, I didn't save any money.

    How about combining the two topics? Voting for which political party would get us TR waves 4 and 5 (especially 5) quicker? Are the Monster Raving Loonies still going?

    I'd lose inscrutability points if I answered that directly, young wanderer.

    Whoever makes Grey Kup a reality again may have my vote.

    Well, as today was a morning-til-2 shift and buoyed by my local Smith's having a couple of THJ Issue 8s to choose from (at least after work if not before), I am taking that (and the fact I made the train despite my circuitous route via Smith's to the station) as an omen to try a more ambitious afternoon TF scouting mission, wish me Bon Chance!

    *Clicks fingers * flippin' Seaspray! I knew a must have had slipped my mind!
