    Today had a package delivery (Jurassic Park) and a surprise Target encounter (RotF Sideswipe).

    20211121_001832.jpg

    JP93 is a pretty mixed mixed bag. All the complaints I heard about the figure held true. Tiny head, floppy joints, car hood difficult to lift in robot mode. All disappointing. But what's not disappointing is how he looks! That vehicle mode is incredible and it works so well to make a fun bot mode. He'll definitely be displayed in vehicle mode for the most part. Here he is with the other crossover bots (my headcanon is that three of them landed near a pop culture museum and scanned the nearest vehicles not realized just how much they worked against being a disguise).

    20211121_000253.jpg

    Rexy (or Tryannacon or whatever they called her) is an absolute show stealer though! While she's not without her faults (backpack won't stay put well and I was afraid I was going to pull her hips before her crotch unwrapped, I had to pry it apart with a butter knife!) she makes up for with her... everything else. The robot mode is incredible, those colors work really well on BW Megatron's body and the new headsculpt is deathly menacing. She is not a bot to mess with. Dino mode looks great as well. As much as I enjoy the amount of character BW Megatron's color scheme brings to him, its nice to have this dino in more natural colors. Looks great alongside Dinobot too!

    Sideswipe is an update I've been longing for for a while now. He's easily one of my favorite Bayverse designs, if not one of my favorite Transformers designs period. But the DotM version irks me for me a convertible. I strongly dislike Transformers being top down convertibles. Thats not a disguise! I can forgive it for motorcycles because there's no alternative other than not being a motorcycle... but if they're a car, have a roof! I mean I get it that by this point in the films they weren't exactly staying hidden, but I dislike it on principal. So needless to say, I'm thrilled to have Sideswipe with a roof. The sleak new silver parts replacing the dull gray really make it stand an extra floor above DotM as well. Plus my local Target still sells Studio Series deluxes for $18 so he was even a few dollars cheaper than the DotM Sideswipe!

    My girlfriend got me Kingdom Waspinator as an early Hanukkah gift today and I don’t know. I wasn’t really sure how I felt about him because for me, the T30 figure is kinda perfect. I will admit the wasp mode looks pretty cool, but I have to give it up to the T30 figure being superior. Sure the older toy doesn’t have ankle tilts and has fewer paint apps, but I like just about everything else about him more. The gun is way better and more accurate for the T30 toy and I really wish they’d gone the extra mile and done similar to the Kingdom toy. The waist secures better. The bug legs as kibble are in the right place and are less obstructive.

    That’s not to say there isn’t a place for Kingdom in my collection. I’ll keep T30 with my Beast Wars while Kingdom gets added to my Starscreams.

    After much searching I found Reformatting Megatron. Not impressed. Missing one spare hand, I figured screw it, I don’t care. Opened him up, moved his arms, then turned his waist and he snapped in half. FML. Going back to WM, where they’ll probably put him back up beside this BB.

    Edit:Got a replacement. Hopefully this one doesn’t fragment itself. E81B7F8F-3B1E-4670-AF41-C1E9E8B8C175.jpeg 87787CA4-0991-4B9C-9985-B4AB96E42966.jpeg

    My wife and I went to the local toy store over the weekend and I found something titanically surprising!

    20211121_193022.jpg

    Trypticon! And better yet, priced competitively with online listings! I was a bit unsure about it since I definitely hadn't budgeted for him, but my wife saw my shock and awe at finding him and encouraged me to go for it. Boy oh boy am I glad I did. He's so much fun! And better yet, he appears to be a second run version and his hips move quite nicely. This guy looks incredible and is quite fun to play with. It's nice that Omega Supreme finally has someone to go toe to toe with!

    20211121_205632.jpg

    Full-Tilt is a surprisingly nice figure. His robot mode is nice and he has a killer headsculpt! Goes nicely with Brunt as Trypticon's mobile forces.. But the vehicle mode really sets him apart. I mean... That's the Tumbler from The Dark Knight. Like... thats a Batmobile and I love it!

    20211121_205616.jpg

    Trypticon's ship mode is a nice addition. It looks good but is the mode I'm ultimately least interested in. The giant cockpit section look really cool. Would have looked nice with the Ark if I still had it.

    20211121_195402.jpg

    Base mode is fun though! I always enjoyed making bases with Omega Supreme, the modulators, and Micromasters/Mini-Cons so I'm happy to have some new to add to the mix. Tiny bots and large bases brings back great childhood memories of having buildings/players for small figures.

    20211121_200805.jpg

    Oh! And his instructions came in the sealed baggie with his stickers, so those are fresh and unused but I'll have to set aside a good chunk of time to do those. I've only ever snickered up one figure before (T30 Whirl) and that took me long enough for a much smaller figure!

    I almost wound up not getting him for missing Necro. When inspecting Trypticon I couldn't find the little Headmaster and the shop owner said a few weeks ago someone stole the accessories from a Takara Legends Fortress Maximus (thats just cruel to do to a small toy shop owner!!!) and he figured that person also managed to steal Necro. But alas, we found him in Full-Tilt's chest thank goodness!
    Oh, and the shop owner gave me a Marvel Legends Songbird I'd been looking at a a freebie, which is exciting as she's one of my absolute favorite comic characters! I love shopping local.

    And since that was a lot of text... bonus dino kings pic!

    This apparently showed up 10 minutes after my BBTS order showed up. The guy who brought my BBTS order rang my doorbell, I payed my fee and went back to bed for another hour and a half. After 2 hours later I check my mail and another package is here. I look at my e-mail and it shows this package showed up just after my BBTS order arrived. Now why am I ranting? Because the Doorbell was underneath where the delivery guy placed the package. I wasn't even asleep yet. What, do I have to Pay Extra for Them to Ring the Doorbell or Something?!

    Does your mailman ring your doorbell everyday?

    Edit: your doorbell rang because you owed a collection fee... otherwise, why would they bother to ring? :rolleyes:

    I made that face as well.

    It's extremely rare that anyone has rung my doorbell after 2019. No one does it anymore. Not UPS, not FedEx, not the USPS, not Amazon, not Shipt, not DoorDash, and on and on and on. Ever so often it will ring but, it's typically I want to get away before you realize that I placed everything on the doorstep right in front of the door so that it's impossible to open the door even through there is space for it to literally go anywhere else while being "hidden" and elevated surfaces for food to go since you know food has to be a minimum of 10" from the ground at all times. Quantity over quality, gotta meet those quotas . . .

    When there is a large package yes most of the time. Not the ones that fit in the mailbox.

    Caved and ordered the seeker trio, siege and earthrise.

    For years my plan was to collect a seeker each from a separate line so they would look similar but be unique. However it was pretty wildly inconsistent. My only skywarp was universe (repaint of armada) who was voyager class. Then they made star scream a leader and a combiner and I was left with only two of the three. So since they were all available for a reasonable price I caved. The moulds are nice. Going to be strange getting used to beefy seekers but I'll manage.

    Come to think on it you are right...
    Despite having a door bell and a knocker, most delivery people just pound on my door with their fists to announce their presence like some kind of SWAT team.
