A huge thanks to Zippo for aiding me in the acquisition of these but also to all those who offered to help too as the guys are painfully hard to find. ;):cool:

RtS Perceptor, from Big W. I went there looking for newer Powercore stuff after talking to a friend about the Dinobots set, and I found 'Bee, G2 Optimus, and one Perceptor. Given how cheap Big W sells toys in relation to other shops, and that it was the only Perceptor there, I picked him up.

While I should fiddle with him a bit more, I do quite like him. I just wish he came with his own gun so he could be a science sniper. That said, he's been repurposed into robot Adam Savage.

Hursticon: jaydisc posted his acquisition post on the morning of April 1. ;)

Congrats on getting Grappel btw. That toy is damn nigh-impossible to find! Mebbe next time we meet up I can take comparison photos of RtS and United Grappel/le? (and remind to actually TAKE the photos next time, unlike last time when you brought Hasbro Magmatron over and I totally forgot to take comparison pics with Takara Magmie... :p :p)

Anyway, my first TF acquisition of the month:
1: Transformers drinking bottle
2: Transformers Energizer batteries. They're just normal Energizer batteries but it has moofie Bumblebee on the card. :p

...can you tell I'm desperate for Transformers stuff after days of endless findings of KO toys? ;)

I still have a bit to go, but I've definitely been working on a few kinks I've had in the past and I am quite pleased with the results so far. :)

Congrats on the Wheeljack Gamblor, I can't wait for my own! :D

I concur! Beautiful photo's, Hursty. Great toys too! :D

Cheers DD! :D
I've been trying to better my photo taking, one step at a time and I agree Grapple is cool but Lugnut is Glorious! :D

*snip*

not many to go now...

Congratulations Sharky, I imagine they're remaining MISB? ;)

I bought a new Transformer yesterday. He is white, has a bit of red...You get the drift

Ratchet? Skyfire? oooh wait! Red Alert?! :D:p

Nah, it's Blades isn't it? :p:D

Hursticon: jaydisc posted his acquisition post on the morning of April 1. ;)

Congrats on getting Grappel btw. That toy is damn nigh-impossible to find! Mebbe next time we meet up I can take comparison photos of RtS and United Grappel/le?

Cheers for bringing that to my attention Goki. :o:p

Oh I know what you mean dude with these RTS Voyagers, it's ridiculous how bloody sporadic and sparse these figures are! :mad:
If you'd like Goki?, I'd be more than happy to bring Grapple and Magmatron up to the next Parra fair and I'll definitely remind you to take photos. ;):)

Wow, things must really be dire if you're having to result to purchasing based on Backing Card alone dude, I'll have my fingers crossed for when you arrive in Taiwan mate. ;):)

Very nice pics/haul Hursty!

Man, where are you guys finding these RTS Jazz/Grapple? I'm on the lookout for em' for my brother in law.

Cheers GD! :D
Hopefully the pictures will continue to improve, but if it weren't for Zippo I'd have nothing to photograph. ;):D

These later wave figures of Generations and Reveal The Shield are stupidly rare or hard to secure - My advice mate would to be to keep your eyes on the Sightings threads and if someone spots anything you're after?, just drop them a PM and see if they can help. ;):)
Both Jazzcomp and UltraMarginal have been on the look out for the RTS Voyagers for others, including my self - Cheers again guys, so maybe get in contact with them dude. :cool:

Target stores man. But they're quite limited usually 2 -3 only as opposed to tons of that G2 laser Prime and Bumblebees:rolleyes:. My local Target had 2 and I texted the whole lot of Westie sydneysiders of the sightings, not sure who got it though as there was only 1 left after I purchased mine. Take heart though, Im guessing these will start to crop up once Kmart finally decides to restock their shelves.....keeping my fingers crossed. otherwise be on the lookout in the sightings thread. I myself am having problems locating Wreckgars locally, but I can wait , theyll shelfwarm hopefully later on.:)

I think you may have to have an understanding of how the case assortments work in order to figure out why the more popular guys in the RtS range are so scarce.

The Deluxe cases (revised wave) comes as follows (IIRC):

2 x G2 Primes
2 x Bumblebee
1 x Perceptor
1 x Wreck Gar
1 x Tracks
1 x Jazz

And the Voyager's as follows:

2 x Lugnut
1 x Strafe
1 x Grapple

Now you can see why G2 Prime and BBee are pegwarming and the other guys seem non-existent, they're shortpacked to start with - same goes for Grapple whereas Lugnut and Strafe are 'comparatively' easier to locate.

I got a free McDonalds Transformer (these toys were marketed as Transformers in this region) from a friend here. I got excited as it's my first Transformer toy acquisition not just for this month, but also during my current China trip! :)

Since I'm overseas without my regular acquisition mascot (The Collector), I'm using Beachcomber instead :p
http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y227/goktimusprime/Transformers/acquisitions/burgerbot1.jpghttp://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y227/goktimusprime/Transformers/acquisitions/burgerbot2.jpg

And just when I'd nearly given up hope of finding any more legit TFs here, I finally found legit Transformers (that I don't have)! :o It was in this little collectable toy store... I was directed to this main shopping mall, which had nothing but KOs... then I just wandered around until my "toy store homing sense" led me to this place! And guess what? They have Solar Storm Grappel!! I could never find this toy in Sydney -- had to purchase United Grapple, then I finally find Grappel on the other side of the freakin' planet!! (typical)

But anyway, I picked up from this place:
http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y227/goktimusprime/Transformers/acquisitions/acquisition_20110403.jpg
+ Universe Overcharge, 20RMB (2.94AUD)
+ Timelines Flareup, 45RMB (6.62AUD)
+ DOTM Deluxe Skids, 120 RMB (17.65AUD)

Not bad for 180RMB (AU$26) IMO... though I've been told that I paid too much and that I could've gotten a better deal if I'd haggled better. I did haggle for Flareup and Skids though cos both are loose w/ no backing card and no instructions and Flareup has no weapons. Evidently my haggling needs more practice. :p

They had other DOTM Deluxes there too - Starscream, Sideswipe, Ironhide... and some car I didn't recognise (Jolt???). But the guy was asking for AU$30 for it (and I was unsuccessful in haggling him down) -- so that was an instant pass. I might as well wait for the toy to come out in Australia and if I still want him - even if I still pay thirty bucks, at least it'll be MOSC w/ paperwork.

Glad to hear they arrived GH. ;)

SGB: Didn't know you were a fan of Beast Wars Neo. :) I found that show to be mostly particularly dull until the Unicron story arc at the end. MATRIX BUSTAAAAAAAAH!! :D

Anyway, I went back to that collectable toy store and got a refund for DOTM Skids cos one of the panels wouldn't transform properly. I then purchased DOTM Sideswipe for 130RMB (AU$19.20) and a MISB RtS Lugnut for 150RMB (AU$22.15)!

Actually, I've never seen the show. I purchased the BW Neo cels because I liked the artwork.

I..I uh, I purchased ummmm.....waves 1 and 2 of Powercore combiners Commander figures. (Scout &Minicon.)They were 11.99 each at Toyland in the Robina Town Centre.

I feel...dirty.

Nah, don't feel dirty dude - If you like them man then enjoy them! ;):D
Don't let us PCC critics stifle your fun. :cool:

The rest of all the stuff I purchased in Australia arrived.

*snip*

Another view

Now to sort this out and show how many of these items actually ended up in my hands.

Holy Crap Dude! :eek::eek::eek:
Man Zippo, you've done a great thing for those in NZ that are looking for all those figures not being released across the creek - That would've been an interesting Post Office trip though! :p:D

haha no not these guys.. they hardley seem worthy to keep MOSC/MISB he got opened up and transformed and then stuck in a box with the rest.. when the time comes they will have their own little corner on the shelf

Ah I see, I look forward to the photos of that shelf dude because I think: Individually PCCs suck but I'm curious to see what a Battalion of them would like like together. ;):)

I think you may have to have an understanding of how the case assortments work in order to figure out why the more popular guys in the RtS range are so scarce.

Oh yeah dude, I figured that would be the case with these later wave Generations and Reveal The Shield case assortments, It just sucks though that only certain stores are even bothered to order them and the Hasbro Marketer who put together these case assortments needs a "Bloody Good Kicking!". :p;)

Sorted out my Australia trip haul, and this is what I brought back for myself

*snip*

Buster Prime/Jetfire 2 Pack (Loose Complete as the box was too large to bring back)
Battle in Space 2 Pack (Loose Complete)
RtS Perceptor
RtS Grappel
RtS Lugnut
Last of the Wreckers TPB (Australian version)

Still a sweet haul for yourself Zippo. ;):cool:
What are the differences between the AU and NZ versions of the LSOTR TPBs dude? :confused:

I got a free McDonalds Transformer (these toys were marketed as Transformers in this region) from a friend here. I got excited as it's my first Transformer toy acquisition not just for this month, but also during my current China trip! :)

Since I'm overseas without my regular acquisition mascot (The Collector), I'm using Beachcomber instead :p

*snip*


Haha! Sweet! :p:D
Man, those little guys bring back some memories, I used to see them in plague proportions at the old local flee markets though I can't say that's the case anymore. ;):)

*snip*

Classic Transformers vol 3 from eBay at a horrible price.
BW Specs & some free goodies from the irrepressible Goktimus

Ooh...
I wouldn't mind getting my hands on copies of those BW Techspecs myself Gutsman, nice acquisitions dude. ;):D

some b'day pressies from last week :D
still waiting on the big one from my wife..... (oh for the love of god...hurry up usps!!!)

*snip*

janda :)

The only one out of those that I've got is Bludgeon and I can tell you for sure dude that he would make one wicked B'day Present! - Congrats! :D
(And Happy Birthday dude ;):))

My first acquisitions of the month ... three Beast Wars Neo animation cels.

*snip*

Oh nice SGB!
That is a very enigmatic, bust shot of Longrack there dude - Really cool! :D:cool:

Is it a bird? Is it a bee? No! It's disco lazer light-show Western Exclusive Recoil baby! :cool:

*snip*

LOL :p:D
I like that name DD, looks like he, Jazz and Blaster are going to get along quite well! :p

Received (or picked up I should say...) the following classics;
Mirage
Bumblebee
Voyager Megs
Voyager Optimus

Pics Dude! :D
Nah, good on you dude as those figures are all awesome IMO and Mirage is especially rare as crap to find these days at a reasonable price. ;):)

*snip*

Anyway, I went back to that collectable toy store and got a refund for DOTM Skids cos one of the panels wouldn't transform properly. I then purchased DOTM Sideswipe for 130RMB (AU$19.20) and a MISB RtS Lugnut for 150RMB (AU$22.15)!

*snip*

Ah man, that sucks about the Skids figure but at least you found a replacement figure in Sideswipe, but dude! - you got RTS Lugnut for a steal of a price man! :eek: - What do you think of him? :D
(He's Glorious right? :p)

Really? Are people that way inclined? I didnt collect Takara cause I cant read or speak Japanese, but after seeing the TF Collection boxes, I changed my opinion (still the best packaging IMHO ever). However re Generations/United etc then there has been an issue of figures that either line dont have - i.e. Warpath, Ultra Magnus, Cliffjumper all Hasbro.

Personally I like Hasbros but the difference in quality from Jazz JPN and Jazz US is incredible.
I guess that when they make these figures they dont think of these over 30s who are bitching about quality, but the 6 year old boys who will destroy it in less than 1 day :)

Massive haul today... arriving in the mail from RK:

United Decepticon & Autobot 3-Pack
United WFC Cliffjumper & Bumblebee
United Rumble & Frenzy (x2)

*SNIP*

Also picked up the following spares from K-Mart & Big W (due to their clearance pricing):

Generations Skullgrin
PCC Icepick w/Chainclaw (x2)
PCC Sledge w/Throttler
HFTD/AA Breacher (x2)
RTS Windcharger (x6)

*SNIP*

If anyone in Sydney wants a Windcharger and they can't find it, PM me and I'll sell you one of my spares for what I paid for it ($10).

Man which Kmart did you go to?

Jeezz... the amount of Ebay profit there...:eek:

Today's acquisitions are courtesy of Kmart and Target, couldn't resist these prices! :D

Hunt For The Decepticons, Voyager Class - Bonzaitron ($28.30)
Hunt For The Decepticons, Voyager Class - Seaspray ($30.00)
Hunt For The Decepticons, Scout Class - Breacher ($10.00)

I'll post pics tomorrow, but Voyagers at a Deluxe Class price point and a Scout at a Legends Class price point were just too damn hard to pass up - I highly suggest everybody makes use of these great savings! :cool:
(I saved $50 off of the normal RRP! :eek:)

Skyhammer and Undertow with their respective minicons:D also got Rts G2 Prime coz he was cheap :P though I might keep him imprisoned atm.

Also Managed to finally get my posters laminated in matte. Officeworks Parramatta finally has a machine big enough. 2 years ago when I went there the attendant said their machine couln't fit my biggie DW posters, but when I went there last week saw that the new machine (not so new from the looks of it though) and thought, hmm this could finally fit my posters and it did :D.

If you're referring to RTS (not HFTD), then they've actually been selling quite well - they're just on clearance because the local retailers are making way for DOTM toys.

As for HK, of course they wouldn't move and would need to be marked down - who the hell would buy a Hasbro toy when you can get the TakTomy version quite as easily and for not much more money?

GoktimusPrime
15th April 2011, 11:16 AM
Yeah but in HK most regular retail stores (e.g. dept. stores) primarily stock Hasbro toys, which is what most kids would get and are much easier to find. Hasbro toys are a LOT easier to find in HK than TakaraTOMY ones -- I don't know where people are finding TakaraTOMY toys in HK, cos when I go shopping there I mostly find Hasbro toys. Are they specialist toy stores? Cos regular dept stores like Jusco typically stock Hasbro stuff -- you get a few Takara toys in (e.g. Pepsi Convoy), but I suspect that might be a special import done through Hasbro HK.

There are tons of specialist toy shops here. Tons. Off the top of my head, I can think of at least 3 buildings where every single floor and every single shop is a specialist toy shop.

Collectors hardly shop at retail and it used to be the case that for Hasbro stuff, you can actually get it cheaper at specialist stores (1999 - 2009 thereabouts). Now there is a trend reversal where retail is actually cheaper, so the locals only go to retail stores like SOGO, Justco, TRU etc to scalp and resell at higher prices in the specialist stores.

3 key factors with my approach to photos now:


Daytime lighting from behind the subject. :)
Miniature tripod to reduce handling for more stable shots. ;)
Time-delays to also avoid handling the camera during the snap. :cool:

These have certainly helped, especially since acquiring a better camera isn't on the table as of now. :)
The pointers from Deceptic really have helped too. :cool:

United
UN1-22 (all of them)

Classics
Cliffjumper, Mirage, Astrotrain, Bumblebee, Hot Rod, Ramjet, Starscream, Grimlock

Fansproject
Shadow Commander, Protector, Warbot, G3 Trailer


What I realised is I have too many of these items so I will be selling some of them excess ones to members for what I paid for them. I will be in Melbourne for the next month so would be good to catch up and do exchanges.
I will sell for what I bought them for.

In all fairneess this is 6 months of postage items I have finally been able to open (hence why there is so much).... its christmas on steriods....

Generations: Scourge & Kup (finally in from tfsource after an 8 month preorder wait!), Thundercracker (gotta love the seeker mold) and my fave, Wheeljack.

TFUnited: Wheeljack(like I said, my fave!)

Finally, heart warming good luck story: calling at my local woolworths one night, found a former student of mine stocking a peg of RTS legends. Checking through all of them found 4 starscreams, one of which was that hens tooth rare unpainted face screamer!

Got all of this stuff from Bigbadtoystore.

It came pretty quick.

Was quite impressed.

Around $180 delivered.

I only really wanted to order the Macross Super Weapon set and given that delivery was quite expensive, I decided to buy the Alternity Ultra Magnus and the Encore Ironhide and Ratchet.

After I bought them from BBTS, I noticed they were missing their heads, but the packaging had cardboard heads, so they will do for me!

I would agree...problem is, they tend to change the freakin packaging once or twice and so it doesn't look consistent and uniform! bugs the sh*t outta me! I wanted to do it for ROTF leaders. then the yellow boxes came out instead of the red. so much for that idea...

Even throwing away most of the packaging (just turfed out Piranacon's box this morning), I've just got a lot of toys to lug back home.

Atm I'm looking at:
(from Australia)
+ United Grapple - arrived at my doorstep just as I was about to leave for the airport. I quickly opened the toy and left the box at home but took the toy with me.
+ Universe Legends Beachcomber
(purchased in China)
+ Universe Mini-Con Overcharge x2 (the spare is spoken for)
+ Flare Up
+ DOTM Deluxe Sideswipe
+ Motorcycle BuzzerBot (for fatbot)
+ Wasp Buzzerbot
+ Animated Blackout (for you)
+ Nut Convoy
+ Sergeant Kup
+ Reissue Piranacon
+ Sergeant Kup
+ Generations Scourge

That's a lot to carry around, let alone bring home in my carry-on luggage (cos I don't trust putting them in my main luggage)!! I'm seriously thinking about posting Wasp Buzzerbot and the Reissue Seacons back to myself via SAL. It'll take a while, but I can wait for Buzzerbot and the Seacons I primarily bought for the Piranacon parts. I'll bring the accessories home but mail the actual Seacons themselves - that way when I get home I can finally form Piranacon with my G1 Seacons and later when the reissues arrive I'll form them into Piranacon and display my G1s in individual bot mode again :) (that way I don't have to look at reissue Snaptrap's unsightly blue-green head! :D).

Got this from Demonac (Cameron)today. Cameron and I havent seen each other for ages so it was an absolute pleasant surprise to see him. I will catch up with him another day for sure.

Bought 2 TF off him - ROTF Cliffjumper, Dropkick and Evac.


http://img815.imageshack.us/img815/8417/p1100453r.jpg (http://img815.imageshack.us/i/p1100453r.jpg/)

Blackout is one of my favourite 2007 movies characters, so when Evac, an Autobot version was available I grabbed it.

The Sikorsky MH-53 is also featured in the 2007 Transformers film as the alternate mode of Blackout.

Even throwing away most of the packaging (just turfed out Piranacon's box this morning), I've just got a lot of toys to lug back home.
"snip"
That's a lot to carry around, let alone bring home in my carry-on luggage (cos I don't trust putting them in my main luggage)!! I'm seriously thinking about posting Wasp Buzzerbot and the Reissue Seacons back to myself via SAL. It'll take a while, but I can wait for Buzzerbot and the Seacons I primarily bought for the Piranacon parts. I'll bring the accessories home but mail the actual Seacons themselves - that way when I get home I can finally form Piranacon with my G1 Seacons and later when the reissues arrive I'll form them into Piranacon and display my G1s in individual bot mode again :) (that way I don't have to look at reissue Snaptrap's unsightly blue-green head! :D).
"snip"



I guess that's why your having a hard time. Even in Alt mode they would be a really tight fit now wouldnt they? also have to consider the weight of the hand carry I guess. It is doable but with much thinking. Cant you squeeze some in your wife's carry on... say the seacons and BUzzerbot wasp, in alt mode of course? Or looking at the list, all of it in your carry on - it is possible, unless your luggage is quite petite... I gave it a try (yeah Ive got nothing to do:p) and your stuff goes in the carry on of your wife ( not sure what these are but I would imagine, camera, towel, :D:Detc)

Got this from Demonac (Cameron)today. Cameron and I havent seen each other for ages so it was an absolute pleasant surprise to see him. I will catch up with him another day for sure.

Bought 2 TF off him - ROTF Cliffjumper, Dropkick and Evac.

Blackout is one of my favourite 2007 movies characters, so when Evac, an Autobot version was available I grabbed it.

The Sikorsky MH-53 is also featured in the 2007 Transformers film as the alternate mode of Blackout.

The Warbots Defender I got from Blackie arrived today in the mail. And well, he's freakin' amazing. So glad to have this guy in my collection.

I will say there are a few heartstopping moments when transforming this guy! The connector tabs for the Armoured car and Helicopter transformation are frighteningly tight!

Now to order the reprolabels sets and turn this guy into Springer!!

Picked up United Wheeljack today for AU$38.50... making him the single most expensive non-exclusive Deluxe toy I've ever purchased. Ouch. But at least I have the toy in my hands now.

I tried to haggle with the store keeper but he wouldn't budge. He knew full well that this toy is in short supply. Damnit.

Flameblast and Warcry come with bio cards which have a short back story for the characters. I wont spoil them for anybody but it looks like fansproject are putting together a pretty interesting story.

Cheers Janda. The prime one has folds though:o:eek::p:(:(:(. I couldnt find one without a fold and that isnt coming from Canada ( im trying to avoid the hassles of Canada post) so I settled for one that has been prefolded but having it sent in a tube to prevent anymore fold damage... hence I started a thread asking how to get rid or at least lessen the fold creases:o:o hehehe
