Goldbug and Trailbreaker have finally started to show up in my local area, as have the rest of the RTS Legends figures and at $6.64 each They're a bargain!!! ;):cool:
I grabbed Soundwave for 2 reasons, 1. He is Soundwave :p, 2. He was $2.98!!! :eek::D
Very strangely, my local Big W has restocked in ROTF Legends figures and stupidly, apart from Soundwave, they're all the ones that have Peg-Warmed for over a year now - Who the hell do they employ to manage the Toy Departments around here?:confused::rolleyes:

A Reveal The Shield Battle In Space pack, A slightly Dyslexic Grapple and one slightly less than glorious Lugnut from Target. He's neat but there seems to be a 2 milimetre thick section of cockpit missing. Not entirely sure If I should take it back or just ignore it as he'll be spending most of his time in bot mode. And Yes, this is another instance of Shoddy QC for me in the Reveal The Shield line.

Here's a pic-

I caved in and bought the Battle In Space pack on special at Target. :p I might keep Cyclonus as "Armada"... undecided about Rodimus (might keep him so I can display one in vehicle mode).

I haven't opened the toys yet (I opened it up and took the comic out to read it, which was the main reason for getting this set... boy was that disappointing (-_-)) -- so I'm not sure if the Matrix comes with a chain to sling around someone's neck (like Galvatron II did). If it does then I'll put it on my Universe Galvatron's neck... if not then I'm not sure if I want to keep it. :/

Still giddy with excitement over todays haul! :p While Universe Inferno didn't do a lot for me, I reeeally dig United Grapple. The head sculpt is so much nicer, the shade of orange used is spot on (glad they didn't go brighter/darker) and that crane is a monster!! Very cool toy, highly recommended.

http://i661.photobucket.com/albums/uu332/Doubledealer_83/grapple.jpg

Universe Cosmos was next to be de-carded and once again I'm really impressed. Like the Classics seeker mold, the execution of updating a G1 toy was nailed 100%. He's up there with Legends Wheelie (both versions) & the recent Megatron for me. A must have!

http://i661.photobucket.com/albums/uu332/Doubledealer_83/cosmos.jpg

The last two purchases were made on my lunch break today (yesterday for you east-siders), those being RTS Cyclonus & Hot Rod and Legends Goldbug. Rather than post a pic of Cyclonus himself, here's all three Cycloni right before they combine to form...Triclonus! If you get just one Cyclonus, get this one I reckon!

http://i661.photobucket.com/albums/uu332/Doubledealer_83/triclonus.jpg

Goldbug wishing he was more gold and less 'sparkly mustard'

I know it's (sometimes) more cartoon accurate, but a Grapple toy with an orange head doesn't look right to me.

GoktimusPrime
4th March 2011, 09:36 AM
they should make a green Grapple repaint for Classicsverse Hauler. ;)

Like probably everyone else bought Battle In Space pack, I much prefer the purple they have used for Cyclonus from the original Hasbro release. ;)

I like both. Universe Cyclonus' darker purple is more G1 toy-accurate and thus more like the way he was (usually) coloured in the G1 comics. Also, Cyclonus was coloured in a darker purple in the fourth season of the US cartoon when he became a Targetmaster - so really, for Targetmaster Cyclonus the Universe colour is more show-like too. RtS Cyclonus' colours ("mid" purple) are quite accurate to his colours in Transformers The Movie, but I think Henkei Cyclonus' colours (more lavender) are more accurate for Season 3.

Reference piccies
Cyclonus in Transformers The Movie (http://tfwiki.net/w2/images2/a/a4/Cyclonus_tf2.jpg)
Cyclonus in Season 3 (http://tfwiki.net/w2/images2/6/6b/GalvatronCyclonusWebworld.jpg)
Targetmaster Cyclonus in Season 4 (http://tfwiki.net/w2/images2/c/c8/Cyclonus_tm.jpg)
Cyclonus in the G1 comics (http://tfwiki.net/w2/images2/e/e5/Cyclonusrod.jpg)

I like RtS Cyclonus because he does have the TFTM colours, but more appealing for me is the lack of mismatching colours on the thighs which was a problem with Universe Cyclonus. RtS Nightstick's colours also beat Universe Nightstick's colours hands down.

I was disappointed that the Matrix didn't come with a neck chain (I would've loved to have hung it around Universe Galvatron's neck), but I was impressed that it's shinier than New Year Convoy's matrix. :)

I agree, I saw (in Deceptic Optics collection) the black head version and it looks so much better, the Black tends to end the monotonous orange color of the figure and makes it more interesting, the UNited all orange version kinda looks dull. Though I wish somebody put some chroming effort to the hook :(:(, ah well looks like Ill be painting this figure when I get one.

It's crazy how expensive United has gotten here in HK (and even in SG I heard). The latest Wave (Perceptor, Kup, Blurr and Wreck Gar) retailed for about HKD$180/piece for all of 5 days and each piece jumped to HK$250 thereabouts. In SG, I heard that United Wreck Gar is going for SGD$50 or more. That's just nuts.

***

So today, a Saturday, and for the 3 week in a row my wife has to go back to work (banks just never let their lawyers get a break I swear. every deal must have been done and signed, yesterday).

Went for breakfast (alone :() and then went to the TRU at Causeway Bay which is 5 mins from my place...

... I basically picked up all the Wheeljacks and Thundercrackers on the pegs... (don't hate me :D)

I was thinking of buying another wheeljack and thundercracker and realised I have them on order! :)

Scalp my friend :) :) :) Wonder what happened to all the other waves that were suppose to be at TRU?
BTW - ask them for stock at the back - I guarantee there will be more of them

It's crazy how expensive United has gotten here in HK (and even in SG I heard). The latest Wave (Perceptor, Kup, Blurr and Wreck Gar) retailed for about HKD$180/piece for all of 5 days and each piece jumped to HK$250 thereabouts. In SG, I heard that United Wreck Gar is going for SGD$50 or more. That's just nuts.

***

So today, a Saturday, and for the 3 week in a row my wife has to go back to work (banks just never let their lawyers get a break I swear. every deal must have been done and signed, yesterday).

Went for breakfast (alone :() and then went to the TRU at Causeway Bay which is 5 mins from my place...

... I basically picked up all the Wheeljacks and Thundercrackers on the pegs... (don't hate me :D)

United Wave from etoys japan: Cant be bothered to take pics

2x Kup
2x Perceptor
2x Wreck-gar
1x Blurr

Slightly annoyed since the box that it was shipped in was bare thin with a thin layer of bubble warp- which does nothing. 2 of the boxes were crushed... I can't really be bothered to complain since they were pre-order price and cheap shipping and I will open those 2 anyway... but still- have learnt to really appreciate RobotKingdom's packing.

Already have the Hasbro/Generations on display. Also thought from early pics that Generations one was superior. Got a united one to keep misb for completion's sake and pre-ordered before all your lovely pics of the united version, which changed my mind :D

Caught up with Heroic Decepticon (and will almost certainly later this week) to get some Henkei goodness.

Causeway Bay first stop:

Henkei Ramjet
Henkei Sideswipe
Henkei Galvatron
Generations Scourge (i feel like creating an army).

On a side note, Generations/United are sold out so fast here. I am a bit surprised Hasbro arent releasing more.

I remember the good ol days of 1985 where there were a whole shelf at Kmart and all the seekers and cars there...

It's not whether I can afford it, it's the justification in spending $400+ for a MISB or AFA graded item that will forever remain sealed simply for the sake of nostalgia.

Having said that though, I'm still keeping my eyes out for a MISB or AFA graded one and may pick one up if it's the 'right price'. ;)

Not bad for $20, but should be $12-$15 like when Big W dump stock.

This has been my holy grail for years and my quest has come to an end. It's hard enough getting any of the issues post 300; it's almost impossible to find them with their free gifts still attached.

Now, to get it framed :cool:

Whats the backstory of the picture? And who is the guy 'ascending' in the middle?

Whats the backstory of the picture? And who is the guy 'ascending' in the middle?

Think Transformers the movie - Unicron finally comes to Cybertron and so every Cybertronian defends the planet without distinction anymore for whose allegiance is what.

Basically the story is that a United alliance of Cybertronians ( Autos and Decepts) have been teleported back to Cybertron to defend and defeat Unicron. This was done by a Possessed Emirate Xaaron ( the glowing ascending guy) - possessed by Primus himself.
He explains to all his "children that the chaos bringer must be defeated only by joining forces can they succeed and so they did.

Powernaster Prime is struggling to free the goodness in the Matrix ( the one thing which can defeat Unicron) since it has been tainted by Thunderwing's malign influence ( when he has gained control of the artifact - but later on been possessed by the matrix - See Marvel G1 - Matrix Quest). During this time Scorponok is leader of the Earthbound decepticons and has agreed to the alliance and died a hero in Prime's arms while attacking Unicron. Bludgeon takes leadership after....

As the story goes, Prime is able to free the goodness of the matrix but with the cost of sacrificing himself ( Prime's love doing this out of habit :p) which then paves the way for the introduction of Actionmaster Prime but that's a later story. Grimlock gets to be leader ( actionmaster Grimy) as per Prime's last wish relayed to Prowl.

The Marvel run from Matrix Quest onwards to issue 60 in US got me hooked , earlier issues are a bit of hit and miss story wise for me.

In UK G1 comics continued on with Rodimus being leader etc etc, thus have more comic # and also had different storylines, but was effectively tied up to the continuity of US whe Furman took reigns of the comic wrtiting for both. The UK comics has these freebie connect to make a big poster at the middle which you get when you buy religiously the issues - which are hard to come by nowadays WITH them posters ( as per 5FDP):) Hope that helps, other data Im sure Gok can provide

Sounds like the epic scale of a TF comic :p

liegeprime
12th March 2011, 06:22 PM
yup it was... I just wish theyd re do those stories but with todays art and drawing, that would be so awesome....the Tfs had character development back then, nowadays its get in as much Tfs in the pics for fanboy thingie but with nothing happening much to the story....:(:( Those were the times when you REALLY cant wait for the next issue to come out to see what happens ... not this drivel cliffhanger IDW tries to do but fails miserably... their idea now of a cliffhanger is basically cut to the middle of what is about to happen.. see next issue...in the back of your mind, "But nothing yet has happened!!1 What do you mean the story is over for this issue?!?"

Which is why a lot of people ( well oldies hehehe like me) got really excited when Generations Thunderwing got issued ( and was announced last Botcon) because basically the G1 figure sucks - there I admit it:D:p , BUT Furman made these characters oh so BAAAAAAD - Thunderwing, Bludgeon, Scorponok and full of character and life....

GoktimusPrime
12th March 2011, 11:29 PM
Congratulations 5FDP!! :D <envy>

yeah, there are some things in that poster that are, strictly speaking, canonically incorrect. It show's Prime pulling the Matrix out of his chest -- Powermaster Optimus Prime never had the Matrix in his chest. The Matrix was lost when his original body was buried in space, hence the Matrix Quest. Also, at the time the Matrix was actually in possession of Thunderwing. Furthermore, it shows Starscream "leading" Decepticons against Unicron... the Decepticon contingent was heroically led by Scorponok. Starscream's role (as well as Shockwave's) can be best described by this memorable song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZwuTo7zKM8)...

Brave Sir Starscream ran away
Bravely ran away away
When danger reared its ugly head
He bravely turned his tail and fled
Yes brave Sir Starscream turned about
And gallantly he chickened out
Bravely taking to his feet
He beat a very brave retreat
Bravest of the brave Sir Starscream!

because basically the G1 figure sucks - there I admit it , BUT Furman made these characters oh so BAAAAAAD - Thunderwing, Bludgeon, Scorponok and full of character and life....
Aww, I like Thunderwing. But yeah, Furman had an incredible nack of making otherwise forgettable toys really cool and memorable. He's even admitted himself that had he known what influence his writing would have, that he would've bought a box load of Bludgeon toys and made a motza by selling them today. :p

I think I've settled on getting it framed... dependent on the cost. I did think about getting it laminated and was going to ask Optics if it's something he does and how much, but I reckon it would look a lot more attractive behind glass.

I'm planning on hanging it in the new room (the one I had built last year) and I have a rule of no blu-tak on the walls.

I'd still be up for a CBD meet though :)

BW Airazor and Terrorsaur

BW Sea Clamp

(From Unicron). For my Abominus build up. (I had Blot as a kid, and damn, I forgot how pathetic that toy really is).
