    Vangelus your right, Shadow Scyther looks pretty good when it's combined with the crystal Rodimus. I don't have SG Rodimus or Wildrider, and after seeing the pic of the crystal version with the armour, it was a no-brainier, as well as being the cheapest option. [​IMG]

    Batroc the Leaper was crippled when he was defenestrated (or encouraged to defenestrate himself, I forget which) by Deadpool during the Joe Kelly days.

    As far as Wingblade Prime as a Botcon exclusive goes, given that DJW loves Metalhawk, I wonder if he'd work as a repainted and reheaded version of that toy.

    I totally came in here to post that picture of mine, it's good to know this is getting some good circulation. Hell, I've even seen it on Twitter a few times :D 

    When I ordered the Shadow Scythe I knew I would never have a black Rodimus repaint (though I will soon, thanks to Chans Formers :D ), so when I saw my clear Rodimus just sitting there, I thought "Hey that might look good". I put the Shadow armor on, and ran to get my camera to take that pic, it was pure magic in toy form!

    Mmmm.

    I went back and checked my BIS Rodimus, sure enough, stress marks on the shoulders. Oh well, nevermind, the joint still works fine, and now my Classics Hot Rod (+ Protector = Rodimus Prime) now has an awesome yellow back wing! :thumbs2:

    My Rodimus doesn't have stress marks (but then again he doesn't transform any more (a part broke on my original 2006 Rodimus (chest hinge) so I switched out that part.) Cyclonus does have stress on his legs where the arms peg in but I don't mind too much.

    Ive only been listening to the pod cast since july but this has to have been one of the stranger ones. Between Vangelus' pot smokin reference and Lupis talking about sticking action figures up his husbands butt, i was really quite confused by the whole thing.

    Lupis, it was actually Mongul who ended up ripping out Arkillo's tounge (I also thought that the Mattel one had his tounge in his mouth, the DC Direct one has Arkillo with his tounge around his neck). Also, do you hate all Monguls? I look foward to you not reading the threads & this hopefully being mentioned to you on WTF@TFW 134 :lol

    I think the WTF@TFW catchphrase/slogan/thingie should be Vangelus's "Spark yourself".

    Just thinking of when he said, "I'm going to go checkout china(something).com while I spark myself" a while back still cracks me up. lol.

    Congrats on doing what hundreds of millions of dollars couldn't do. You made the twins worth remembering. Almost.

    for you guys, the best use of DOTM Ironhide's mechtech weapon
    YouTube - Filthy Sunstorm

    in all seriousness, the mechtech weapon is the most fun part of that toy.

    vangelus, I also like having actual Cd's. i'm a little ol' skool though. For me it's not just having a hard copy, but I like the actual art that comes with alot of albums. I just picked up "Major Lazer" and it has a foldout scene and a sticker sheet where you can place your characters into a scene ala those "storybook" ones back in the day with those plastic restickable stickers.

    anywho.....

    I too like the artwork, it's just so difficult to find the bloody things unless they're charting nowadays. It was a very sad day when the record store in town closed down.

    Liked the artwork so much I went out to find vinyl versions too. now that is some nice work.

    Of course there were Dinosaurs in Wales, once upon a time the world only had one continent and then split.

    UK dinosaur types:
    Biggest Longest Heaviest carnivor dinosaurs * T rex * Giganotosaurus * Spinosaurus

    Also Vangelus is right about the letter Z, it is pronounced Zed. Nobody anywhere in the world other than America pronounces it ZEE. You say ZEE to anyone in England (where the English language was formed) they'll tell you to stop talking like a daft bugger :lol

    That...that link is awful. Spinosaurus should be the heaviest, followed by either T. rex, Tyrannotitan or Giganotosaurus.

    Must resist urge to fix...fiiiiiiix
