the chest drawer on my tripty is fine. nice and tight even with full tilt clinging on

@  Dekafox : (25 September 2017 - 10:14 PM)

Mine seemed to ahve teh slight door warping too but it's not bad enough that Full-Tilt's weight pulls it open, so I haven't bothered with chest screws yet

@  Dekafox : (25 September 2017 - 10:13 PM)

I did the hip compression too when I got mine earlier today. It was hard to tell when I did it enough(and the end of the spring still hurt a bit after a bit of doing it) but seemed to work fine. Also seemed very tail-heavy when I worked on getting him to stand angled instead of upright

@  BlackMax : (25 September 2017 - 08:51 PM)

@Tm_ You can be a dude on a TF message board, that's not half bad.

one of his legs was tight so i had to do the fix. hes all better now

Sad to say, I'll likely be picking up The Last Knight this week. If nothing else, it should look fantastic on 4K Blu-Ray, and my 4K OLED is still new enough I'm willing to watch things I hate if they look stunning

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 01:34 AM)

Yeah, I picked it up last time when it got the 3-D conversion re-release treatment

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2017 - 12:57 AM)

To be honest I think I'd rather a copy of The Lion King over a copy of The Last Knight, and I already own a copy of the Lion King on bluray...

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 12:36 AM)

I spent some time looking for a thread about The Lion King before I figured out the movie you actually meant

Arrrg! Just as I was about to make my first purchase from BBTS in years: their website up and dies on me.

Picked up Slugslinger. Awesome figure except for some unfortunate mold degradation. His fists are so loose and held just by friction. Hopefully they don't start falling out randomly.

Oh, odd coincidence, this afternoon my PS3 wasn't turning on. I seem to have fixed it tho.

Oh great, my PS3 stopped reading discs. Brilliant.

don't get any water on your trypticon, and don't feed him after midnight.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2017 - 10:42 AM)

I've had mine for two weeks with no problems. Just don't be a hamfist with it.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2017 - 08:36 AM)

@  Telly : (20 September 2017 - 09:00 PM)

just ordered tr trypticon. should have it monday :)

@  OrionPax44 : (20 September 2017 - 04:57 PM)

@Robowang I have one somewhere and I can send it to you. Don't worry about it. Just let me find it

@  Bass X0 : (20 September 2017 - 04:43 PM)

Sometime last week, I purchased Hasbro Windblade online then a day or two later, Takara Windblade was announced for only £4.99 more making me instantly regret buying Hasbro's Windblade. Guess I'll be giving Hasbro Windblade to my nephew for Christmas then.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:24 PM)

That whole flat-rate shipping thing makes the math easy.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:23 PM)

4 bucks

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:15 PM)

Hmm. How much is shipping from BBTS?

@  NightViper : (20 September 2017 - 02:09 PM)

Set of the four is still $22 at BBTS

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:00 PM)

Ramhorn is currently available from a third party seller via Amazon for $27.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 11:47 AM)

Anybody have the TR PM OP trading card they don't want? I lost mine! Will pay you for it.

Dr Who's sonic screwdriver 'invented' at Dundee University
QUOTE
Scientists claim to have invented their own version of Doctor Who's famous sonic screwdriver.

The Dundee University researchers have created a machine which uses ultrasound to lift and rotate a rubber disc floating in a cylinder of water.

It is said to be the first time ultrasound waves have been used to turn objects rather than simply push them.

The study could help make surgery using ultrasound techniques more precise, the physicists said.

Anyone listen to the various Audios from Big Finish or BBCAudio?

I finished on the BBC Audio first story with Tom Baker (Doctor 4) {Hornets Nest part 1} and found it somewhat weak...a lot of long passages of being narrated at about what happened in flashback. The big finish dramas are usualy more...dramatic.

We've listened to Hornet's Nest and Demon's Quest, and found both pretty lacking. Most of the other audio stories seem a lot better.

I've heard this coming season is a short season (Short to our American eyes, anyway) in order to stockpile the budget for the 50th Anniversary, so if that's the case it would make sense if they were already deep in the planning stages.

Not to mention it's the 50th Anniversary - I'd expect all the stops to be pulled down and guest stars aplenty to be had.

Same number of episodes as in the past. Will start in the fall and run the Christmas episode, believe it or not, on Christmas Day. Then the rest will be in the spring. 6 in a row than 8.

Rory and Amy will leave just before the Christmas episode (episode 5?>) Then Jenna-Louise Coleman will make her appearance as the new companion in the Christmas episode.

So no shorter season, no stock piling money. The only rumor that has been acknowledged is that there will be no multi part episodes, just stand alone.

The same series of posters included HIGHLIGHT to view:
the Eighth, Ninth and Tenth Doctors, as well, so I'm certain all the stops are to be pulled no matter what.

Eccleston has been pretty clear about not wanting to return, so I'd guess he's out, besides archive shots. McGann has been adamant about coming back and even had a new outfit designed (with Sonic Screwdriver). It would be awesome to at least 8s final moments before regenerating into 9. Tennant is definitely ok with coming back last I read.

Trial is worth going through to the end, at least once. Trust me. You want to be there as we lead into the final part.

@BigFinish: I am a HUGE fan of Big Finish, but budget forced me to cut them a few years ago, so I am woefully behind except on the BBC4 8th Doctor (Paul McGann being one of my favorite Doctor's after all). I have heard mixed reviews of Tom's return, mainly since his voice has drastically aged, which makes things feel off for a lot of fans. Do yourself a favor and acquire any of the following to see how good Audio Who can be:
5: The Kingmaker, Key2Time series, and any of the Turlough ones, Excelis Dawns, Omega
6: The One Doctor, Arrangements for War, Real Time, The Wormery, Jubilee, Davros, Actually almost any of his.
7: Fires of Vulcan, Bang-Bang-a-Boom, The Reaping,
8: Chimes at Midnight, Seasons of Fear, Neverland, Zagreus (40th anniversary special), The Next Life, and the entire Lucie Miller arc (BBC4 Radio)
Side stories: the original Dalek Empire arc, Kaldor City (Not by BF, but so hugging good), and the UNIT stores were fun.
Unbound (New actors/What if's): Any of this subline is worth hearing with actors like David Warner and Aribella Wier as the Doctor.


@50th Anniversary: While I am sure we are going to go for a HUGE anniversary episode, there are some hard truths to face: Eccleston wants nothing to do with Who anymore, Colin and Tom Baker have both aged badly (While 5, 7 and 8 can still pull it off), and no matter what we could wish for, The Brig and Sarah Jane are gone icon-screamer.gif icon-screamer.gif icon-screamer.gif

Still. Last I heard, the 50th was meant to be an independent special next year, not part of the upcoming series at all, or at very least, part of the NEXT one after this upcoming one.

Indeed. I don't think there's any way in hell Eccleston would return, because he has expressed a lot of somewhat vague disappointment with aspects of the production during his brief tenure.

I still think it would be interesting if they used Benedict Cumberbatch as the 4th Doctor, his take on Sherlock reminds me a lot of Baker's Doctor. Have Tom in some other role if he is up for taking part in another special.
