Action Figures & Their Beers – On the razor’s edge

The good folks of the nearby (nearby to me, anyway) Hunter’s Brewery of Ipplepen once again put their brains and backs into turning out another brew, this time, described as “The Ultimate Pale Ale,” produced in collaboration with The Bluebeards Revenge, a local business described as “The Ultimate Shaving and Grooming Brand for REAL MEN.” Made with Citra and East Kent Golding hops, this ale is bottle-conditioned, unpasteurised, and unfiltered. It’s 5.1% ABV, and tastes as sharp as a razor or cutlass. Imagine the sharpness of a lemon, but without the actual lemony taste. That’s what you get with The Bluebeards Revenge, along with some hearty malt and a bottleful of refreshment. This is some very nice beer. Image

Well, I reckoned I needed a pirate to go with this beer, given the name. The guy alongside the beer is the BotCon 2014 Decepticon Pirate Cannonball from the “Knights vs. Pirates” boxed set. He’s basically the Decepticon version of the Dread Pirate Roberts, one of the most recent in a line of captains (the fifth) who all use the same name. He’s based on the Transformers: Prime Ratchet mould, which is annoyingly fiddly with a tendency for parts to pop off mid-transformation, and I think his knees were swapped around and put on the wrong legs. Also, I know it’s supposed to have been fixed before the 1990s were out, but I’m still a bit worried about Gold Plastic Syndrome on this guy. I’m not fond of this mould at all, but the character, from what I’ve read of him, seems to be a fun-loving guy with a bit of a sly streak to him, and easily commands the loyalty of much of his crew, so he must be doing something right.
