After years of searching, I finally have one of my holy grail items...
This came in Kabaya’s Milk Caramel back in 1985 and was available in three colors, red, blue and yellow. It’s a different mold then the decoy Keshi released the subsequent year.
And here is the complete trio in red, left to right: 1985 Kabaya’s Milk Caramel Keshi Laserwave, 1987 Shockwave Decoy, red variant and, 2018 Super 7 Keshi Shockwave.
Now I just need the blue and yellow versions and my Shockwave collection is complete!
Definitely have to get him! Bonus that I love helos and he looks like the real thing!
Nice! How'd you end up getting him?
Mechanic Studio not-Pipes. I really wanted a legend Pipes that would be toy accurate, and this one scratches my itch.
A friend of mine that buy s and sells keshis came across him and picked him up for me. I've actually been searching eBay for several years for one of these, and even spent several days scouring shops in Japan for them when I was there in November.
Got these pressies slightly early - one's from Mrs Ottertron and one's from me to me
So, I like Starscream MUCH more in hand than I was expecting to - he's very poseable, although I wish his feet came out a bit further so he doesn't look like he's on tippy-toes, and his alt-mode bottom doesn't irk me half as much as I thought it would - and much as I like Soundwave's chomky robit mode, his regular alt mode is just a load of nothing that leaves his robit mode with a lot of pointless kibble that I will probably trim away. Lamp-post mode or GTFO.
One of few Siege figures I'm keen on. Mostly only because he's an add-on for Fort Max.
That's a good friend.
Just need starscream (and maybe galaxy convoy) and im done with wave 2
I’ve been looking for this guy for a while now. Enter this toy store today, and there he was, waiting for me.
It was a chubby bastard kinda week! All these lads arrived this week, and POTP Inferno & Jazz and CW Cyclonus just got their asses REPLACED with a quickness!
Yes. He said it was a wedding gift. Best gift ever. Arrived in the mail without any forewarning. I was shocked and surprised. And extremely happy. I have been looking for one of those for years.
That's where i srarted.
Then i brought the rest of the line in one day.
Well Glyph & Hatch (an OC of mine from a Hello Carbot Santa Fe) welcome my new Botbots, including my first Series 2. I found these on the bay about a week and half ago. Got them for $8.
This guy look really nice.
Transformation is not so nice.
Getting the jet cone transformed takes a bit of time and patients.
Some BotBots, Cyberverse 1 step Hot Rod and some BotCon things I picked up on a whim. The excitement is later this week when a pile of loot arrives from BBTS!
Man I miss Botcon stuff. Even though they were just repaints with occasionally a new head, for some reason, FunPub just knew how to make appealing TFs. Especially when they chose vibrant colors or really weird color schemes to homage or just plain be some of the original characters. Sorry, just got all nostalgic. I got a box for my Machine Wars set recently and seeing the two you got has kind of made me want to complete the whole set.
Also, Ollie Bite (I think that's the hat's name) is pretty awesome. I ended up with two and hilariously, one has a crooked brim and the other is perfectly flat.
I’ve been picking up some Machines Wars stuff lately and that’s what got me into the Botcon Machine Wars stuff. I miss the figures they put out as well. I miss the whole thing, actually.
