It's damn cool but I have the 1/12 scale NECA one and could easily fashion poor Mr Kinney from some cheap figures - which I will now do!

You're a genius! Lol :D

I've been able to fix them but some TMNT figures turned up as absolute garbage.

Got some more photo shelves from B&M which are really for toys. Also got a sticky-back 'glitter black' roll to make a handy background out of for toy photography.

Oh, and Transformers Top Trumps... The artwork, the stats, the "you're cheating, somehow!" :lol:

Got some awesome Venomized Pops (Punisher, Miles Morales), and Iron Maiden Eddie.

This was great too

I collect notebooks occasionally now; they'll all be used over my lifetime, I promise...

Oh, and this is just fantastic

Looks good. I still have my Masterpiece Prime MP-01 in a cupboard. I'm a player not a collector so it's not mint anymore.

Bought our youngest a Nintendo Switch yesterday. No idea if it's any good, but she is very poorly, and seeing that made her smile, which she hasn't done a lot recently. :(

Kills me when something you've been looking forward to shows up broken (Transformers Astrotrain).

Did however get some Lego baseplates that will make for a nice 'car event' (monster trucks, supercars, even a dune buggy), and a really long street scene complete with a burning burger bar :lol:

Basically I realised I could have an awesome City shelf too, with just some cheap vehicles representing police, fire brigade and so on.

This for £30 in Home Bargains:

https://www.lego.com/en-gb/product/mobi ... show-31085

Love it!

A bunch of Lego base plates at £3.50 each from Tesco.

A Walking Dead figure who will go great in an eventual diorama.

Some 'cheap' Transformers (as they go).

Aero Caramel was disappointing, too sweet for me and isn't 'stringy' caramel.

BTW, anyone looking WWE figures should check out Home Bargains; good two packs and stock of single figures just in.

Private Eye annual 2018 - 38p in Tesco (no, me either, but it's great).

PS4 Anthem for £2.12 in Tesco... I don't know the first thing about it, but for that price we'll give it a go.

Caved and bought Marvel Legends Thing, a brilliant Hot Wheels car with a deck of cards design, a Walking Dead comic book Negan figure for a custom, and a glow in the dark Batman Dorbz (which I'm now gonna test lol).

It's not even worth the £7 I paid for it (Lego prices were crap a few years ago, they're scandalous now), but I have a full-on display just from a few key vehicles and needed a cool bike, so...

Marvel Legends Superior Octopus is great but the tentacles aren't. And yes, even I'm wondering about that sentence.

Got a great little Hot Wheels Hotweiler car.

McFarlane's Animated Batman figure ain't all that. The hips are nonsense so he needs the stand he comes with, and the cartoon design skinny legs really don't help. He's also got the head articulation of a car door ratchet.

Lego City magazine came up trumps with a firefighter with a drone and a mini police car that'll go lovely with what I'm planning (I've gone full Sim City with cheap Lego sets).

Bought a Sonic lenticular cover notebook - it's got one frame of animation and even that's illogical, so it's going back.

Got a spiral bound Sonic notebook that's good at least.

Hot Wheels Batman pack and one with a spanner for a spoiler have unfortunately been left in my mate's car...

Dyson V11. I originally wanted a stick vacuum cleaner soon after we bought our house. SWMBO didn't. Now SWMBO doesn't like carrying the Dyson cylinder one up and down stairs and has declared that we should buy a stick vacuum cleaner.

Picks up a lot of crap, even after the old Dyson had been used a few minutes before. I suspect the lifetime filter of the cylinder needs to be cleaned but we will still keep it around. No hassle of having to get it out, set it up and then use. Light and portable means you can do a quick clean up within seconds.
