    The first Constructor bot I go to transform and he has a problem - two right arms on Concrete. Meaning he can't tab together, and can't go into either alt or combined. Absolutely gutted. Have dropped TFS Express a note to see what they can do.

    Whoooohohoho I'm still a-train, ahh hey iiiiiiiiii i'm still a train!

    If you clean the crumbs after, yes!

    Cheers Seeaich! Can't (and wouldn't) argue with any of that. I may go home tonight, pick him up and re-read these words.

    And cheers @Dreago that is possibly the best thing anybody ever said to me about these wee reviews.

    Well, that's pants.

    Surely it's precisely the kind of thing the retailer will sort out.

    All the best

    TFS Express have said they will request a replacement part (as opposed to offering me a replacement figure) and also directed me to Toyworld, saying I might get more luck directly. Any hint of it not being sorted and I'll return and refund the whole thing because, yeah, fuck me. Hopefully Alan will sort it though.

    At least it's not Magento which I've had the fun of having to play around with recently...

    I once tried to install Magento. It failed. That's as close as I've ever gotten with it. I'll be working on a custom Laravel build as soon as I get this Wordpress shite out of the way... Something to look forward to.

    *skids in to the thread, already days late for the topic*

    What are we looking forward to in 2017?

    On their way to me soon, nothing can stop it:
    Archforce
    Cybertron Crumplezone

    Need to pick up when I have time (possibly this year):
    TR Triggerhappy, Quake, Shuffler

    Will we see them at retail? Does it matter? Money and time are literally a joke to me:
    TR Perceptor, Twin Twist, Octane

    What the hell is a Cogman?:
    TF5 Cogman, Sqweeks

    Got a pleasent surprise today! Guy on a another forum sent me a spare Beast Wars (1996) dinobot as I emtnioned he was my favourite character but my classics mold broke a while ago. But he also sent me a beast wars Rhinox! Gave him mroe than psotage for it.

    Anyone else thing the original Beast Wars toy is far better than trhe classis one for Dinobot? Derpy raptor face aside.

    Welp, I quit my job earlier this month and today was my last payday - they shafted me and I'm down around £250, so all of the Transformers I'd sourced and planned on getting this month ain't happening.

    BALLS.

    Still, I did manage to cheer myself up slightly after a visit to The Asda....

    Well I suppose it was asking a bit much for Dicemus to make it in 24 hrs even if it would have been nice. Still not even updated tracking on Cosmobattles - it left Japan and went........Somewhere. I suppose next week i'll have to get into the nerve shred of "negotiating" with a Japanese retailer about what to do if it is fucked. It would have been so much easier if Kapow had gotten this sod in.

    It's going to have to be a quiet weekend having gone for those IF Seekers.

    This hobby has reduced my patience to that of a four year old.

    For work I had the fun of building a custom docker image with a working Magento 2 setup with MySQL and our in house plugin to make it easier to test out changes. Not my favourite program and hopefully I won't have much to do with it now in the future :)

    Oh sweet, my brain just farted this lovely guff:

    If we're getting TR Brawn, there will probably be an Outback repaint. Straya!
