dang i keep forgetting to come here. i use instagram for my figure pics and stuff these days.
um let's see. I saw the bumblebee movie on 15th december. Kinda hated it. The film itself was ok but really unoriginal (felt like i was watching bits of the 2007 movie mixed with Short Circuit and why was Bee a puppy for most of the film except when he turned into red-eyed murder-bee near the end and yet charlie didn't seem bothered). Really disliked the g1 bots (and now Studio Series has that blocky Prime in it..ugh... We have Siege for all that G1-ness... And john cena was acting like he was in an actual cartoon and not a live action movie.. oh and so much 80s music just in case you ever forgot it's set in the 80s.. and bee randomly playing 'The Touch' of course cos meh...
Omegatron huh? Hm, I sold that last year for a nice amount. Was a cool toy but I had no use for it anymore
I cracked open the junker Millennium Falcon from when I sold a bunch of star wars figures and stuff for the charity shop almost a year ago, with intention of selling off the useful parts... and found five more figures somehow inside the main closed off area of the ship.. not the cockpit and not the purposely open area at the back.. they were right inside and i can't figure out how they got there but yay more money for me.
I treated myself to a second hand Unique Toys Challenger (Masterpiece The Last Knight Optimus Prime) for £80 I saw on a Facebook group. It is awesome. I can't get over how the chunky truck completely hides away inside the slender robot. It's insane. Also came with the pre-order bonuses of Merlin's staff in two sizes (tiny one fits a Mega Construx/Lego hand so Skeletor is holding it cos closest thing I got to a Merlin...
) and a sword for Peru Kill (UT Lockdown) much the same as the one that came with Studio Series Lockdown but much bigger obviously for the much larger Peru Kill but I'm not intending to get that figure (not making a habit of getting expensive TFs. OS Grimlock and UT Challenger cost me plenty) so I'll probably sell the sword to someone who has the figure and needs the sword.
Have ordered me Studio Series Jetfire cos I love the robot mode (it's so much better done this time than on the RotF figure) and will be buying the improved Prime to combine with occassionally too. (another expense. I need to slow down but dammit it's one of the best waves of Studio ever with improved Prime, Bonecrusher, Jetfire, DotM Megatron, Barricade and Sideswipe all on my want list).
Really liked that Doctor Who episode on new years day (except for annoyingly huge font on the location names, and the awkward 'funny' bit with the family when their wi fi goes down). Most interesting use of a Dalek in ages and I liked how it made it's own tank shell from alien and earth parts like the Doctor made her sonic. And it killed a load of guys too.
But people still complain.. blah blah... I thought the bit about UNIT was actually a very realistic reason (and as much as I like UNIT it was often too easy to wonder where the hell they were and probably costs a fair bit of TV budget to bring in Kate and a whole platoon of soldiers so having it shutdown through lack of funding made sense to me).
Hope you had a good christmas. My day was crap and lonely but boxing day was awesome cos my friend Kerry invited me over and we played games with her and her folks. Some word game called Banana that used scrabble-like tiles and then Cards Against Humanity. Both of which i've never played before but i won every round we played.
