Just double checked with her. Sorry, no 3-packs at her TJs
Checked the mail and just received my shoulder and hip replacement parts for Fans Toys Soar. After having to sell 90% of the Masterpiece collection, I got to say I am happy that I kept my Dino's.
I found them I finally found them muhaha!
Finally after searching many store! And yeah pretty expensive over here in Australia for $95 AUD.
For the american people that’s about 70$ (67.58) for a leader figure now
Unicron in the house!
After a horrible day at work I come home and what do you know Studio Series Optimus Prime was waiting for me, thanks Amazon & UPS!
I don't know about the rest but I'm sick and tired of Amazon sending my orders in bags not actual boxes, box was a little banged up but not as bad as say Cyberverse Prowl yesterday. Not so bad as I had plans to open them but when I had Funko Pops arrive like this earlier last week I was PISSED, I keep them in box and they looked like they got run over by a truck. So worried for my next Funko Pop order showing up next week.
Yep. Cringed everytime until I started including a second item when I buy a collectible from Amazon now. Ships in a box everytime.
And I cut down on single item impulse buys... Or perhaps I've increased my second impulse item buys...
Thankfully with my Funko Pops I was able to return them and get replacements that weren't so badly damaged.
I wish I could not do single item buys myself but with how sporadic Transformers go up for retail price anymore (I mean Bonecrusher went up for 11 minutes before selling out!) with Amazon it just ends up being that way. Missed out on Bonecrusher and was only able to get Prime, later getting Bonecrusher on order so I'm expecting him to come a little beat up and in a bag as well... oh well at least I was able to get them and the figures themselves aren't damaged.
My Siege Optimus Prime arrived today by mail - very happy with him.
I'd been leaning heavily on the Combiner Wars near-completion of the '84 G1 Ark crew to satisfy my desire for rounding out that bunch (subbing in a Cliffjumper kit-bashed from a TR Roadburn body and a 3-D head, and a Ratchet with a Botcon Ratchet head and a CW First Aid body). But the Siege Optimus is just light-years better than the CW Optimus for that G1 feeling from my childhood.
Plus, TR Brawn and POTP Windcharger, and Siege Sideswipe and Hound all seem like they leapt out of the '84 cartoon (at least in robot mode). I'm happy with TR Bumblebee and POTP Jazz (for now), but Siege is definitely killing it in the good nostalgia department. I'm looking forward to Siege Ironhide, Prowl, and Mirage, and hopefully the rest of the Ark crew (I'll need to see Ratchet before dropping the $$).
Local Con pick ups Zolocon (Warminster,pa)
Thanks to @Liokaiser for the Gears
Just picked up the Power of the Prime Wreck-Gar, and added him to my "TF: The Movie" area on my shelf (now if I could just find an acceptable Cyclonus to stand next to Galvatron and Scourge).
Obtaining this piece has been quite odd. I saw online a week ago that he was still in stores. I stopped into a Walgreens last night, and there was one on the pegs...but it would not ring up in the system. The Manager scanned it, checked their system...and then informed me they couldn't sell the item to me, since it wasn't in the system! I explained it was also on the site, but they claimed they couldn't go off the pricing there since it can differ. So, I quietly left, surprised they didn't want my money.
Cut to tonight, where I stopped into a different Walgreens, that had a few Wreck-Gars, and the tag had them on sale for $14.99! Took it up to the register at this one, and boom, it scanned!
Recent acquisition... black windcharger.
Slowly building that collection.
Visited my local Toy-Zilla today. Bought Studio Series Jetfire and Studio Series DotM Megatron.
Also got these guys loose;
And Cybertron Defense Hot Shot
Picked this up at tj max
That is eff'n cool... so that's the garage I keep hearing about... Needz it.
I have not heard of this what is it called? It looks awesome.
Bumblebee evolution 3 pack. It’s an amazon exclusive but for some reason they have been popping up in tj max.
Sideswipe was sent by a good friend out of Tennessee & bought Hound from my local Walmart yesterday.
