    sorry for the title, but anyway. today's my birthday and i have a whole bunch of money left from my graduation money (i dunno what to do with the rest. probly save it). but anyway, i figure, it's my birthday so i thought i'd go to target and get whatever the hell i saw. well, i only ended up with an animated soundwave and a movie premium bumblebee (that was suprising, but i just had to get it). i was dissapointed not to see uni. galvatron and acid storm and animated grimlock still eludes me, that target is terribe at stocking stuff, but also included in my birthday haul are SDCC nemesis prime, henkei grimlock and hot rod, and takara collection reissue hot rod :) . those last few are still in the mail though :( . so thats my haul, what d'ya think?!

    edit: also, today i went from being a teen kid at heart to being an adult kid at heart. :D 

    UPDATE!! PICS OF MY HAUL!

    OK, here are some pics of my haul and some funny stories to go with them!

    My haul released from their plastic prisons:

    [​IMG]

    And finally transformed:

    First up, Nemesis! He arrived fresh from HTS today. Took em 22 days, but he's here.
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    And then Soundwave, who turned out to be just mediocre at best.
    [​IMG]

    Premium BB: The funny story I mentioned above. I took this awesome pic: [​IMG]
    and then as I tried to put him back in car mode, I ended up screwing up the automorph on his hood
    [​IMG]
    so I'm afraid he's stuck in bot mode forever. He's the first Transformers I have ever broken in my year of collecting.

    Now Grimlock. I'm really scared of scratching him because of all his chrome.
    [​IMG]

    And my favorite out of my haul: HOT ROD!!!

    [​IMG]

    And here's the gang transformed

    [​IMG]


    ANOTHER UPDATE (AND ONE MORE TO COME BY NEXT WEEK. then this thread can finally die already)

    So looky what just came in the mail :D 

    [​IMG]
    Me trying to pose Henkei Hot Rodimus like the box art. Also, camera focusing phail.

    [​IMG]
    So pretyyyyyyyy.

    [​IMG]
    And with the the rest of my haul (so far)

    So what you all think?!

    I'm getting the Henkei version because it looks like Skyfire from the show, however if you like the G1 Jetfire Hasbro is the way to go.

    im 18 today premium bb seems similar because its essentially the same toy but opening this one just brought back all those memories from last summer :) . it was also special because i thought it had long been off shelves, i feel like today is a really lucky day. i really wish i had pics but i wanted to wait until i had all my figs because just the two i got from the store wouldn't seem too impressive. i dunno how long that'll take though. lets just say, pics too come hopefully soon.

    he'll look quite a bit different in robot mode, i'd say..the black is replaced by a lot of grey.and the head is different...im sure u know that already though...how'd u like animated soundwave? its a funny figure, imo...i love laserbeak transforming into the guitar, but soundwave is a bit boxy..and my one's legs are a bit loose, so he's not too steady with laserbeak on his arm...so i pose him playing his guitar :D  very nice figure overall, i'd say though

    i use the rockin guitar pose, too! i was happy to find my soundwave's legs weren't too loose, i know that had been a widespread problem from the reviews. i'm happy with premium bb moreso because of his posability, my original was really floppy and hard to pose. i dunno about the head though, it's neat but also kinda small for the body. eh, anyway i'm satisfied!

    it took him so long to arrive, i had kinda lost interest in him. when i got him, i was reluctant to open him, i thought about reselling him either here or on ebay but i opened him and i'm pretty happy.
