    By the way, Takaras Perceptor is made from a very light, cheap feeling plastic, much like I've seen reported about Hasbros Perceptor. The whole frame that his scope fits on, with the metal bar and sliding piece, feels kind of weak and worries me a lot, even after half a day.

    Add that to the lack of paint on Takaras compared to Hasbros when making a decision on whether to get him.

    Part of the reason I decided to get Legends Bumblebee was that his clear windows contrasted with the black ones belonging to TR Roadburn. Throw in the painted hubcaps and you get one yellow family-friendly domestic vehicle versus a red sporty street racer complete with tinted windows.

    LG Slugslinger arrived today. Thanks to distribution it was way easier to get the legends version than Hasbro’s. I really think the gold chest circles are an essential part of Slugslinger though, so this was definitely my preferred version.

    My first experience with Takaras target masters and I totally dig them. Tempted to pick up a few more Legend bots just for more target masters.

    Hmm. I'm really surprised that Mayor Megatron has gone this long without a new Galvatron transtector. One that's a real transtector this time.

    Thinking I might just leave my LGs in my HLJ warehouse until January's LG shipment comes in but I really want to get my hands on Slugslinger and Octane. Decisions, decisions :p

    There’s still a legends Megatron toy on it’s way on a few months.

    I figured that would be president (beast) Megatron finally stepping up or BM megatron (or some other incarnation) freshly arrived. Especially given the different headmaster form.

    Does this mean we'll never get a Legends Goldbug?

    Hmm... I have a feeling it does not arrive today. It's in custom clearance since tonight and nothing changed, even though I send them all needed documents in advance. Damn. And I deliberately set my alarm to 8:30 even though I went to bed not until 4 in the morning :(  If it comes tomorrow or tuesday I'm not at home all day... :(
