Perfect for Halloween
Thrust from Target 2 days ago.
And Blurr arrived today from Pulse.
Comic does not have a slip cover/sleeve.
That's my only gripe on the entire package.
Some Buzzworthy finds... and Tarantulas (who I got for relatively cheap). Bee was hard to fit together in alt mode, and Blackarachnia couldn't at all (compared to my regular one, who fits together in alt mode fine). Nemesis Primal's shoulder pads and sword connections are a bit tighter than I would like, but he holds together fine. And Fangry... he's actually surprisingly solid. Yes, knees are loose like 99.9% of the Fangries here, but not impossibly so.
Found g1 kup at a local shop he's really cool
Got these two today
Astrotrain never learn…
He’s like a terrifying new Friday Night at Freddy’s character!
I'd forgotten how much I loved the Transformers Prime line, and getting the Breakdown & Vehicon pack has been a fun nostalgia trip. Also, R.E.D. Starscream is oozing with far more charm than I ever expected.
Um, hi, my name is ophy… and uh, Friday was expensive. I started the day ordering a dive computer as I get back into scuba but then suddenly had a Japanese G1 transformer on order… hopefully terror chicken comes out soon too. Um… within a couple hours I was preordering all the RPG materials and deck builders from Renegade and uh, I guess I’ll be slinging much pizza for awhile. *sits down*
A few that I hadn't gotten around to posting until now.
Snap the Magic Dragon from Pulse.
The Pit of Judgement set also from Pulse. I've never been an MIB kind of guy, but I have to admit, part of me didn't want to remove them from the box. This is so flipping cool and I'm really glad I pulled the trigger on it when they put it up for pre-order the second time
And lo and behold the Sparkless Seeker I got from Walmart is actually a Sparkless Seeker! I'm going to be using him as the WFC version of TFP Skyquake.
Earthrise Scorponok arrived today along with my other purchases over the last 3 weeks!
Found this guy at Target. Pretty psyched.
Two major finds this week. I feel like I should play the lottery.
Got the one and only POP I wanted...
I didn't really intend to get Inferno because I don't think he works the mold as well as Grapple and I think Artfire (who I preordered) looks much better. But Gamestop's sale earlier this week meant I could get a total of $20 off Galvatron and Slug (both yet to arrive), and since Inferno was $23, it meant adding him would only be a $3 increase to my budget. So... yeah, he's here and my opinion on him hasn't changed much, but I will admit he's still good. Feels more solid than Grapple if nothing else. Fun to do waterman posing. (Edit: its been long weekend, I meant firefighter or at least fireman )
And here he is with the rest of my '85 bots. Smokescreen is in my BBTS POL and Skids will be here someday to round them out.
Gamestop coming in clutch with the $19.99 Gnaws and price adjusted my earlier Slag order so got him for $43 shipped!
The app burned me on 1 of 2 ordered so robot Kingdom saves the day!

G2 Megatron Shoulder Adapters so you can place his cannon in G2 style. Available in various colors and L\R orientation. I grabbed both L\R orange. They slot in very securely! The left one has a lot more detail for some reason but that's the one I care more about. The price was right, too!
Kingdom Galvatron Pin and Arm Covers. It's unnecessary to fix the "low shoulder" issue with these. Also makes for a very cost effective and decent-looking "hollow forearm" fix!
Siege Springer Sword Clips so you can attach his blades in different places. I went with a Baraka-esque configuration! These are really versatile, and I'd love to see similar items for other edged weapons from War for Cybertron toys. Especially since very few figures in this line have a wrist rocker for use with swords. @Dachande
Kingdom Ultra Magnus Matrix Holder. It's only visible when he's unarmored--just an extra detail you may enjoy! Note that this only works with the Matrix from Earthrise or Kingdom Optimus Prime. It does NOT work with the Matrix from SS86 Hot Rod, the one from Kingdom Galvatron, or the one from Netflix Optimus Prime. Transformation-compatible, it does not interfere with the unarmored head or anything else.
