Easy retool for Quickstrike.
Silverbolt needs an update for sure!
"We are not the Decepticons!"
Or are you?
Very cool redeco and he comes with a lot of extra stuff.
A face only a mother could love.
I wasn't too interested in 1986. But I like all these sculpts. I decided from an objective perspective, the Thrilling 30 Springer is more dynamic and "different" from Siege. I'm going for a curated collection, anyway. I like the mix of things that look deliberately different from another. The Thrilling 30 are still available at BBTS for non-scalping prices. I admit I am only disappointed that the box isn't the Japanese one. Would have been much cooler.
A lot of people are lukewarm on this Kup. I think it looks great. I have the original Kup somewhere. Wasn't a great figure. But was a great character.
No strong love for HotRod. But… I can't pass up this figure. This is a masterpiece worthy retail figure. What I wanted that chunk 'o plastic to be that I had as a kid.
[Edit to add 10¢ review: Kup's head is big. It makes him out of scale a bit with the CHUG Siege figures and HotRod. Has anyone else pointed this out?]
Wingfinger from Amazon on Wednesday and the two from the toy market today. If I may say, got quite a good deal for slipstream:
Came home from work today to find a smashing box o' things waiting for me courtesy of @Convoy
Couple of Hexa Gear Governors, a bike for them, a pack of MSG beast heads for customising Hexa Gear vehicles and Throne Of The Primes Optimal Optimus!
Weirdly, the main reason I wanted him was so I could have an Optimus Primal in pre-Munke mode like in the new Beast Wars comic, but the big lad is cool too. I shall be popping the pin to separate Primal from his backpack so I can have both munke lads knocking around at the same time and getting the 3D printed and TDW upgrade kits for 'em forthwith!
My third Centurion drone and the amazing Skelivore! I'll need to get 1 or 2 more of him... Anyone looking to get rid of theirs?
Got a few Transformers since I was here last! I'm finished with 3rd Party and today got some Transformers Universe figures in.
Got Dynastron in earlier this month.
Got the Earthrise Skywarp and Thundercracker Set completing the Earthrise Seekers and got a vintage G1 Shockwave
Got a great looking Masterpiece Sunstreaker KO
Got in a Transformers Optimal Optimus, been wanting one for a very long time. I love the Chrome on this figure paid only $7.99 and it's missing shields, robot mode head and missiles
And the latest additions were today's additions:
Transformers Universe Jetfire, Hound, and Bumblebee
Still waiting for a Masterpiece Shockwave to arrive and waiting for Transformers Beast Wars Transmetals Depth Charge and Optimal Optimus.
Just wanted to finish up with Transformers and cleared the To Get List also got Kingdom Rhinox in the other day so I've had my fill of Transformers for now.
Found at the Vintage Toy Mall. I'm going to open the box later to see if I got everything.
This guy arrived today and I'm extremely impressed.
2 down 3 more to go!
Finally got myself MP Tigatron, and the recent NECA Puppetmaster dudes.
So Tigatron... Beast mode? Good. Robot mode? Good. Transformation? Aside from the finicky panels going back to beast mode, good. But the play value? Pretty low. Definitely feels more like a display piece than some of the other MPs I have. But I can't complain too hard.
The Puppetmaster guys are pretty fun. Decent accessories, pose well for their size, and the sculpt is detailed and solid. Hope we get another wave of these guys with Jester, Leech Woman, and Six-Shooter in it.
I also find it entertaining that they're in-scale with MP Tigatron.
Loving your RTS Jazz purchase! I have the same one and can’t bring myself to purchase any other version of him that came out recently.
About the past month or so. TFW a good chunk of your preorders pop in rapid succession.
Mail call brought Magic Square "Deadly" Perceptor today. Wish he was a bit bigger/taller, but doesn't look too bad on the riser. Definitely more cartoon accurate than any Perceptor that Hasbro ever released!
eBay strikes again!
Ironic name for a white figure.
Very nice haul these past couple days. The only missing parts are some of Strongarm’s accessories, Stratosphere’s back wings & back panel, Strato’s mini Optimus, Landmine’s missile, and Scoop’s targetmasters. Overall, really good though. Longarm’s gonna hurt me a little to open it though.
TWFsales strikes again!!! Thanks brotha, so thrilled with these... trying to complete these like the botbots line is frustrating!
TTC lot from a great fellow board member fam... lemmie' know if you're ever looking for something yourself @IgnikaMarcus !
The hunt is real. Congrats! I bet it can be really hard to finish some of these smaller and more obscure sets. I feel like this is another opportunity to summon @rikkomba
