Robots In Disguise MacDonalds Toys March 2017 DUTCH edition

Use Subtitles for description please.
Here is a video I made on 24 march 2017 and edited today because of personal issues.
 


These were available in the Netherlands in march of 2017. I have translated were I can, but further questions will be answered. The music is a reworking of the Robots In Disguise end theme, I changed it tonewise from a B to a D.
Enjoy.

RID toys by Dickie


Robots in Disguise toys by Dickie toys

Recently, I walked into the local lowcost store and saw some Transformers toys ! While being not too impressed with the current Robots In Disguise Cartoon, it only me a whole 2 seconds to decide that I liked these little cars. In the vein of the movie RPM (click link for example) toys from a couple of years ago, they are each about 5 centimeters long and 2 centimeters wide and do NOT transform.

They look nice on my desktop and will be collecting the rest of the series. I have 6 'figures' now, who are the main cast of the show.

Project Weight 012: 16-23 Februari 2016




Hi everyone,

Welcome to part 12 of a series of blogs about my weight.
covering 16-23 Februari 2016.

My starting weight was 105.5 Kilograms and my ideal weight, considering my length of 1.85 meters would be 85 Kilograms.

Currently, I would be pleased to hang around the 92 kilgrams area but my main goal is to reach under 100 Kilograms.  

I have changed a few things. From now on(actually previous week) I weigh myself on a tuesday.

AND that's 8 Kilograms LESS than when I started!

Later in the year I will start with sharing recipes.
Until next !
