These were waiting for me while i was away from the country
Trailbreaker finally decided to join the Lost Light. Welcome.
The tiny tyrant, NA Straxus, showed up recently courtesy of ShowZ
(I'm actually going to feel bad tossing the box; I still have Batman #497)
And for a more unconventional purchase, someone in a FT group I'm a part of on Facebook made custom cards for FT's Guardian Robot (and Reflectors) since FT never bothered to include one themselves. Not sure if they're a member here, but it's one of the only worthwhile things to come out of that group for me (a lot of the group members can be quite...cranky about certain subjects), and it satisfies something that's always bothered me (the original release not having a card).
(I got another St. Vincent vinyl too.)
ER Snapdragon from Target's online clearance sale last week. Fun, stupid figure with great QC. Definitely worth the $14.
A while ago I complained about Optimus Primes that devote valuable engineering real estate to getting a Matrix in his chest, even when it makes no sense for that version of Optimus to have the Matrix. At the time I was talking about MPM Bumblebee movie Optimus! Anyway my Optus Pexus arrived today.
He's good! I'm pretending the Matrix that came with him is a bomb.
So, gamestop, which usually has higher prices than target/Walmart had these at a $14.99 pricepoint...
...and for whatever reason, blitzwing was $12 due to their pro day sale that was going on Saturday/today.
Thrust was my favorite bonehead as a kid, but I'm liking how dirge is looking, despite not being a fan of this line and its simplifications (despite the still overpriced pricepoint)
Miami and Mediterranean
(ah, a fellow St. Vincent fan )
NA put out some great packaging art for its Galvatron mold releases. I'm waiting on EX Darius to arrive but I think I need to cop that Straxus as well.
Same shipment that brought Optus also brought this guy. No slight to Dai-Z, who (with the exception of his horrible waist) I like, but man, wild what a few short years does to toy engineering.
Got me Starscream and Yakuza 6 (gonna have a backlog of games for a while)
Just got NiB SIEGE Springer in since there is no leaks/rumors of a Sans Battle Damage release and unfortunately my copy suffers from loose joints, scuffed paint, warped swords and his chest won't tab in.
I've contacted the eBay seller I bought it from and am trying to get an exchange or a refund but I'm pretty bummed out. I was hoping to commission someone to clean this guy up for me so I'd have a set of pristine 86 bots but it seems I'm gonna have to wait a while longer for that.
I'm hoping my Kingdom Beastie figures from Pulse don't have any major issues like this.
You purchased a used, complete, unbroken, loose siege springer off of eBay... and then complain about it here?
Not only that, but you want to keep it AND get a refund? When you were gunna customize it anyway?
What is wrong with this famdom?
Bruh it was New in Box, why don't you ask before accosting.
I also said I was looking for an exchange or a refund.
What is wrong with this famdom?
Im just as confused as well. Lmao.
