    Lacoste Mirage & Cocaine Alert. :D :) 

    (He's got Red Alert's head so that's who I've decided he is. Of course, he may have sampled so much of his own product that he feels like Sideswipe. Optimus and Ironhide will be very upset. :eek: )

    On a budget, this was coming across sales/clearance here at the end of the year.

    Ratchet was with a coupon/offer at Target.

    Then came the WalMart clearance. Didn't feel a strong need for Sideways and the BB movie characters. But I think HasTak made some interesting toys out of these. Have thoughts of doing some kitbashing, actually. The BB movie characters to me could use better heads. I'm thinking Ironhide might be a drone, exo-suit, or even a FixIt.

    SS86 Arcee will be donated to the local holiday toy drop box.

    My intention was to make Silverstreak here into a Prowl. But I have to say, even though I already have Bluestreak, this version of the mold is nice. The color absolutely pops and has no imperfections. The joints all move immaculately. I don't know if this figure was said to have yellowing, but the white is like a toothpaste cap, it's so white. Strange that this guy is being so clearanced out. One of the best QC I've seen on a figure in quite some time.

    Long story short my FOMO got the better of me.

    UK store Toysmyths has him months ago and I was planning to buy him when he was on sales. The store however were "sold out" online days ago. I am familiar with the store in that they always leave one stock unaccounted for (I guess for online reserving purpose). I visited it instore just incase and I was right, they had one left!
    The backup plan was just waiting for UK online toy store Indemand Toy to put him on sales instead but I was impatience as he is one of my fav characters!

    Overall he decent. Robot mode look good and I liked his cartoon like porportion with the large shoulder and the narrow waist and thigh. Dino mode, he is suprisingly small! Yes I know the mass basically went from height to length as length wise he look long now! Also the leg transformations remind me of voyager Prime Predaking but more awkward to transformed.
    The main nikpick is that he could of had more articulation like actual movement like wrist rotation (annoying the first doesn't rotate inside into the arms), actual dino arms movment like SS86/ G2 Grimlock and the hinge on the dino head is weird? Like the lower jaw pin is different to the head so when you make the head look down, it make it so the lower jaw is longer than the head! Another dislike is the asymmetric with the feet with one having spikes! I know the spikes goes to the back but I rather have both feet having no spikes at all.
    Also the tabbing the head and dino arm at the robot back is annoying at time as in you have to the forceful with it! Have notice the tab is like two halve fused together but it's not fully align properly!

    This is isn't a Transformer, I know. But it technically is a "transformer", in the sense that it's a transforming robot toy. Sorry, when I was a kid, Mom called all toy robots "transformers", saying that they all fell under the same grouping lol.

    Anyways, I found this thing at Target, and I was impressed when I brought it home and put him together. It's called the Gotham City Guardian. Batmobile and Batwing combine together to make this big bot. Initially $100 at Target, was reduced to $67.99 and then I had another 25% taken off. So it came out to just a little over $50. Still, I was both shocked and impressed with how big it is.

    Walmart was STACKED

    As for Ironhide, Ratchet, and Percetor, I'm not really collecting G1 anymore and I have DOTM Ratchet and 07' Ironhide so I have no reason to keep the them. Currently selling them for $10 each on my sales thread if anyones interested.

    Hoping we get Que so I can have a trio of Wheeljacks.

    This mold still rocks and this time, instead of sounding like Linkin Park, it's Primus.

    My Ross actually had something interesting! Normally ours get shit compared to what ya'll apparently get, but I stopped by one on a lark looking for Micro Galaxy Squadron (nope, nothing on that front) and stumbled upon this. I'd been content to pass on her before, but for $8ish, why not?

    eBay regularly has her for less than MSRP right now, especially if you can win an auction.
