Picked up these guys today
Just arrived via Amazon
Studio Series Arcee, Chromia, & Elita-1
snagged studio series shockwave on my way out of work tonight, LOVE this guy!
Got myself a little LG BP250 Blu-Ray player for my bedroom and tried a trick I found online. Now it's region free and I tested it already with 200x He-Man series, which was only available as a complete set in the US. While it was declined before the trick, now it works like a charm.
And after I got proof it works, I ordered all the Transformers TV shows that I can only get as a complete set for reasonable prices with region code 1, which would normally not work here. So cool. I just hope they are sent in time. I just got the He-Man DVDs from the US in about 2 weeks, if the rest is send in the same time, everything's cool.
Transformers Beast Wars
Transformers Beast Machines
Only thing missing now would be Beast Wars II and Beast Wars Neo, but I read that there were no english dubs anyway, except for the fan dubs I already downloaded some time ago.
Ah and by the way: I ordered TPB of Beast Wars The Gathering and Beast Wars The Ascending. If they never release that on Comixology, I had to get it in printed form.
very nice! i absolutely love my G1 bludgeon, can never have enough of the bludge
Finally came in. Very pleased
I was so excited to see them in RotF but then they killed them...
While everyone is out hunting for toilet paper and bottled water, I found some botbots series 4 and 5 packs.
The series 4 5packs complete my series 4...
The series 5 8packs begin my series 5 quest...
(I think I got all the right ones?)
And i didnt have to grapple with anyone for grapple...
And yes... I scored 16 rolls of TP and a case of water.
No pics because both items are going to be sent to AFA for the whole “acrylicarbonite” treatment the moment I get paid.
Item #1: “Vintage G1” Bumblebee
This one came from TFsource. It was my first order from them since 2016. Not a big fan of how they packed it. But I still expect this to score a 90.
Item #2: “Vintage G1” Gears
This one came from an eBay seller. From what I have seen the carding is an 85-90. But after comparing it to others on eBay this might be the best for what I paid.
Now to hope that they will make the rest of the “series 1” minicars...
Wait... you have no pics, but these are the new current rereleased g1 minibots from walmart?
And you're AFA'ing them?
Or these are legit 80's carded figures?
If 80's carded, how in the hell does tfsource have any?
Lots of pics. Has things shipped from BBTS and Transformerland. First box opened is from Transformerland. Robot Heroes, RID Car Brothers, Laser Prime and the unreleased Target Movie scouts are the highlights.
Found me some good old G1 Rarity goodness on ebay & can't wait to receive it:
Earthrise Wheeljack and Cliffjumper.
They’re the Walmart ones. TFsource only has their “wave 1” release because it sounds like there was extra stock made for those. While “wave 2” was a different case. Plus they sometimes get the originals. But that is both costly and rare.
And yup! I am getting them graded! Both for the hope of building a “series 1” minicar collection and have something to pass down when that time comes. So why not start with these since the current cost are ~$65 USD (before shipping)?
My girlfriend and I own and operate a restaurant and today one of our regulars came by our mobile unit (we are working out of it right now because she still recovering from Hodgkin’s) with this guy. He’s in rough real rough shape (nacker even). He’s left arm isn’t connected to his body, lots of broken hinges, yellow and, of course, no accessories. But he’ll be in my collection forever. It’s kinda scary out there right now, but gestures like this make worth braving this mess.
And yes I did Lysol the shit out of him.
Found these two on a supply run, and I even scored some flour and rice as well! Still no saltine crackers though, guess I’ll just make my own.
That hotlink is beyond awesome... I wish I had pre ordered one
Had heard they were sighted in Canada...
Might need you to become my supplier,
I don't know if they'll let me send rice and flour across the border though. I'd probably have to stash them in some Voyager boxes or something.
