    Unique Toys Warlord! It’s decent. A few QC issues but I think this version of Predaking fits in better with my collection than any of the other versions.

    I've been out of the live action movie figure collecting, but couldn't pass up a $40 concept art Megatron. He's amazing in bot mode, but I'm not as enthused about his alt modes as I was hoping I'd be. Lots of fun to pose though!

    They’re pretty good for the price, less than £15 from AliExpress. Build quality is ok, quite hollow but sturdy feeling and all joints are nice and tight. I’d definitely recommend picking 1 or more up.

    Just put in for my order for him yesterday. The price kept bouncing around all over the place last week. $24.99, $36.15, $47.51 ... Seemed like I'd see it at one price, but by the time I was able to actually buy it the price jumped. Finally he was back to MSRP so I threw it in the cart and bought it.

    Got Gamer Edition Starscream and Windblade at Target today!

    May13th2024CollectionAdditions1.jpg
    -Also I've got Classics Ultra Magnus and Optimus Prime coming from Ebay and a part needed for my Classics Nemesis Prime to get him completed!
    -Will have Transformers Studio Series Bumblebee Voyager Shockwave coming from Amazon this week so I think I'm pretty much finished up with collecting Transformers this month even though there are plenty more I want but most are new releases and those can wait.

    IMG_1286.jpeg Got some more of the early Cyberverse figures in. After realizing the main line was only 25 figures in Japan, half of which I already have and many of which are small one-step changers, I decided I might as well complete it.

    In general I like Cyberverse, although a lot of its best seems to be in the Hasbro-territory exclusives. Takara-Tomy didn’t get to the line’s full, weird breadth.

    Of these early offerings, the best is Megatron by a long (ahem) shot—genuinely one of his best tank outings in terms of transformation and overall enjoyability, and with one hell of a gimmick. Optimus and Bee both do interesting things, but also frustrating ones, and I feel like I need to be treating them and Windblade with kid gloves—the last thing I want out of one of the kids’ main lines. As an objectively responsible adult though, I can be careful with them… Windblade has an intuitive but not unsatisfying transformation I really like, and a take-it-or-leave it gimmick, but is struck by female-Transformer-design(tm) that has me a bit weary about the longevity of her razor-thin elbow hinges. Why oh why? Just give this girl some bulk! But I do find her a pretty fun and tidy jetbot, even if you do have to ignore some visible hands. (Plenty of Generations-lines jetbots share the same issue while tidying up less cleanly and being more fiddly to transform.)

    Cyberverse is a real grab bag, unlike its kind of radically consistent follow-up in ROTB (another Takara-Tomy mainline I completed), and Japan missed many of its best parts, but there’s fun to be had here if you’re willing to engage with it. Plus spring-loaded pop-out weapons galore. As a Triggerbot fan, I am here for it.

    Technically not a purchase, but got him in a trade at a place called The Exchange. Not one penny spent, either. Mainly traded in some old electronics and I was shocked to see that they had him behind glass.
