That's a Transformers Prime "Shockwave" on a CD base. Included "for scale" model is a CMG chappie on a UK penny base. Shockwave has had his joints glued up and the first bastard that tries to "transform" it now it's on a base will get a big fuck-off slap. I found the best way to glue the joints up was to squeeze some thin superglue onto a scrap palette, dip a cocktail stick end in the glue puddle and then run it around the joints. Capillary actions seems to draw it into ball-and-socket joints and then it seizes up nicely. Needs lots of groundwork texture and a spray prime next.
Shockwave is the first Transformers toy I've found that doesn't have obvious bits of car or lorry hanging off him when in humanoid form. Also nice that it was on half price offer at the Tesco at the end of my street.
Now we all now that the new
But when Matchbox do this ("Frost Fighter") for £1.25?
Get in. Games Workshop price £29 BTW.
Also found in Wilkinsons is a set of four military vehicles of wildly disparate scale for £4. The articulated lorry and tiny helicopters are not much use (although the helicopters ended up serving as "blow the fuckers up" objectives for a game of Gruntz) but there is a very nice Israeli Merkava II in about 1:120 scale. Probably more useful for Gruntz than 40K as it doesn't really match the aesthetic of 40K but at effectively £2 and of a sufficiently unfamiliar design it is good for 15mm sci-fi gaming. Funky camo scheme (inspired by the work of Ashley at Paint-it-Pink) helps with the sci-fi look as well.
