    Just got back from a trip to Hong Kong. Thought I'd share some pictures. Picked up an Animated Wingblade Optimus Prime, Takara DotM Arcee (reminds me of Prime Arcee!), the collected Animated "The Cool" manga (which comes with a nice little translucent Animated Optimus Prime figure!) and a JAM Project CD (including "Transformers EVO" and "Praise be to Decepticon" tracks!). I've also included some pics of me standing by a DotM display I came across at a Japanese shopping centre!

    I nearly bought a copy of the Transformers Generations 2011 vol. 1 book and the special Elite Guard repaint of voyager Animated Optimus Prime too, but the price tags stopped me. :(

    I did have a good time! Thanks!

    Yes, he is! I've been wanting him for a long time! So I was very pleased to find him.

    I did have a great time with relatives and shopping. Thanks! And I simply couldn't resist taking pics with that DotM window display!

    I bet it is!

    Before this trip, I hadn't been back to Hong Kong in many years too.

    Thank you! Hong Kong is a very busy place, but there's lots to buy!

    I visited Sino Centre in an area called Mong Kok to pick up my toy figs.. There's a few levels of small toy, CD and comic shops in there to browse through! But go after 1pm. The shops only seem to open around that time.

    @Black Oracle: No worries..so have you visited Malaysia at all? We have loads of TF's here to buy too...all under one roof (usually one or two specialist toy shops in malls) I might add..:D  ;)

    Congrats on your hauls, cool stuff! Wingblade Prime is cool, I just wish Hasbro would release it too because the shiny paint is bugging me :lol

    Oh yes! Over the years, my father has dragged me back to Malaysia many times! I have encountered some toy shops there on some of my visits.

    I like shiny things! So pretty to look at! :D 

    Correct!

    I've abstained from returning to Malaysia for maybe 3 or 4 years now I think. And unfortunately, I cannot remember the names of the shops I've visted on past trips. All i can say is that they were in KL.

    Oh yeah, but I put my Wingblade on my regular Prime. The shiny blue paint doesn't match the dark blue plastic on Prime at all, and because the paint makes the parts a bit thicker, the cannons don't like to stay on very well. It's still a very cool and impressive add-on, mind you. :) 

    Same goes for that Hydrodive Bee! I want that, but not in the icky Takara version :(

    It's always quite a chore getting round to see all my father's family, friends and business connections everytime we go back to Malaysia. Guess I've been scared off by them all!

    I'll likely be going back in Jan. next year tho' for my sister's wedding. Don't know if I'll have time for toy shopping tho'.
