I would not like to disclose the amount of doobies I've whacked, mainly as I've forgotten... Wait, what were we talking about? :p:D
I'd like to reiterate Fatbot's point though; Pics Or It Didn't Happen People. :cool:

1988 was the "worst" year in my collection with 1989 close behind with loads missing from the ranks with prices the way they are and some good finds latley i can fill those gaps slowley cause i am pretty bored with the mainstream movie stuff these days ...

I just got back from Osaka for a 2.5 day weekend, and it was ok (bar the torrential rain).
I did take up HD's have a look at Osaka guide which proved very helpful for TF hunting.

Hero Gangu.... oh dear. I think I fainted. My wife started taking pics of me on her iphone because she was in awe that I found my true resting place.

After being to many TF shops around the world, Hero Gangu is the best for G1, Beast era, Henkei (yes they had every single one), United, Botcon etc etc
I think I saw almost every piece avaliable....
However - it was expensive! $28000 for a Botcon Counterpunch, which I refused to pay and nabbed one on ebay for half the price. Windcharger RTS - 4900Yen (WHAAAAA!!!).
I did pick up a MISB Nemesis Prime for $45 AUD which I was happy about and a Masterpiece Rodimus Prime for $100AUD.
The other stores, Entertainment Jungle, Super Capsule, Mandrake Chaos all had a good range, but it was Hero Gangu which I liked.

As for Osaka, once was enough. if you go, go for 1 day (which you can see the bulk of the city then, and spend a day at Kyoto (about a 40min train ride from Umeda).

Will I return to Osaka? Probably with HD for a hunting TF trip.

After this trip, I have decided to buy a toy from everyline from here on end to open up a museum (prob in HK or Sing or Sydney) so people can appreciate the toy goodness.

@UltraMagnus: With regards to the $28000 Botcon Counterpunch, is that in HK Dollars? :confused:
(Because if that is either USD or AUD, then that is never going to sell! :p)

28000Yen (which is about $350AUD or $2800HKD) Its over priced. I bought one on ebay today for $180, which is much smarter :)

If you are desperate for 1 or 2 pieces, then Hero Gangu is for you.

An idea on prices (AUD)

Henkei Ironhide $110
Henkei Ratchet $125
Henkei Cyclonus $95

For an Aus perspective, you would be happy, but from a HK perspective, I found the range was superior in Japan, but so was the price!

1988 was the "worst" year in my collection with 1989 close behind with loads missing from the ranks with prices the way they are and some good finds latley i can fill those gaps slowley cause i am pretty bored with the mainstream movie stuff these days ...

Yeah, the 88 and 89 years are surprisingly difficult to complete. There are actually a lot of figures in those years and many are quite obscure. Good luck man!


Doobie continues to get whacked with g1 goodness. Arrived home tonight to find something orange, green and slightly 'venom'-ous on the doorstep.

deluxe insecticon Venom?

:) got it in one! These guys (deluxe insecticons) appeared at the top of the '85 in box catalogue (decepticon side!) and the goal of my g1 collecting has been to be able to reproduce that catalogue as a display, and a side display for the mailaways. I'm getting pretty close now with only a few gaps, but I knew these guys would be close to last.

I just got back from Osaka for a 2.5 day weekend, and it was ok (bar the torrential rain).
I did take up HD's have a look at Osaka guide which proved very helpful for TF hunting.

Hero Gangu.... oh dear. I think I fainted. My wife started taking pics of me on her iphone because she was in awe that I found my true resting place.

After being to many TF shops around the world, Hero Gangu is the best for G1, Beast era, Henkei (yes they had every single one), United, Botcon etc etc
I think I saw almost every piece avaliable....
However - it was expensive! $28000 for a Botcon Counterpunch, which I refused to pay and nabbed one on ebay for half the price. Windcharger RTS - 4900Yen (WHAAAAA!!!).
I did pick up a MISB Nemesis Prime for $45 AUD which I was happy about and a Masterpiece Rodimus Prime for $100AUD.
The other stores, Entertainment Jungle, Super Capsule, Mandrake Chaos all had a good range, but it was Hero Gangu which I liked.

As for Osaka, once was enough. if you go, go for 1 day (which you can see the bulk of the city then, and spend a day at Kyoto (about a 40min train ride from Umeda).

Will I return to Osaka? Probably with HD for a hunting TF trip.

After this trip, I have decided to buy a toy from everyline from here on end to open up a museum (prob in HK or Sing or Sydney) so people can appreciate the toy goodness.

maybe an ozformers trip and a crash on HD's loungeroom floor is in order :D

No, since 2009 there's been an ongoing series (6 books so far) that cover the current toys (with a primarily Japanese focus but comphrensive of all US releases too). They are collectively inclusive of everything from the 2007 movie toyline onwards. I'd planned to do a review this weekend.

I wasn't originally planning on getting the big Prime until I saw griffin's photo in the review thread. That totally sold me because it's really cool looking. And I figured since I'm not getting Ultimate Prime, I needed some kind of modern Prime with a trailer so Kre-O will do! I was a Lego kid but grew out it of but I'm officially addicted to these darn Kre-O sets. Once I build big Prime I will post photos and such in the review thread :)

http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t152/Rampage_017/IMG_1324.jpg

Basically Model cels are used by the animators to know how a character is supposed to be drawn.Each animator would receive a model cel of all the characters in a series.Sometimes there are more than one model cel for a character. In the transformers case there were usually at least two model cels per character. One cel showing that characters robot form and the other showing there transformed mode.

Best for me is that this is the non approved cell since hes called Ingestor and the colors differ form how he looking in the movie. Mainly the legs are all orange insted of grey, same with the head

I'm not smart enough to rort the system, so yes, yes we can. Didnt check the larger sets, but the smaller ones ship here no problem.

And I lied my total cost was $45, that included a DVD, they only cost me about $35, with the shipping for both sets and a DVD, was $12. Makes them even more value.

Thanks everyone I absolutely love having this Model cell of Unicron. Hes one of my favorite characters and i have all the toys mass produced (Except the lucky draw) Its even better to me since hes called Ingestor and has the non-approved color scheme. As for price let just say it cost a crap load and will be one of my only acquisitions for the month. The frame alone cost $150 because of the double matting and UV glass.
But it was all worth it, still can't believe i have it :D Now i just have to track down the planet mode cel :rolleyes:

Yes I have a Revoltech Ultra Magnus...but that's all what I've had before this one. And I actually regretted a bit on the Ultra Magnus, not because it's not good, just because of my own personal "perfect Ultra Magnus complex" lol...

To be honest at first sight I was kinda let down a bit as it's much smaller than I thought (or maybe it's just me, or my ruler). And it's definitely not that much detailed as you would have imagined based on the preview photos.

I've been playing with it for a good two hours now and began to like it more. It is still a fairly detailed figure, decent paint; poseability -- hard to say because somehow the one I've got has his left leg slightly longer than his right leg so the balancing is a bit tricky as it turns out. The joints felt not as tight as my Ultra Magnus. But then again I'm not sure if it's just mine or it's a line issue.

All in one, I think it's more an eye candy for it's paint and movie accuracy.

But oh yeah, the accessory pack definitely is value adding. The hands and weapons, that'll give you so much more to pose.

Bought my first Kreo in the form of Prowl today. Wasn't 100% convinced by the bot mode so I made quite a few changes, starting by raising the shoulders, beefing up the mid section, putting the windshield on his back etc. Going to try and sit the wheels currently on his forearms closer to his shoulders for even more cartoon accuracy. Also might try to twist the red stripe I've got on his back horizontally to resemble his roof siren. Kreo ****ing rocks!

Hiya guys! Been away overseas on family holiday since start of September, but still managed to squeeze in a bit of TF hunting.
Picked up


Basic Human Alliance Tailpipe (with Pinpointer (Targetmaster thingy) and Sgt Nobel) -- my only DOTM purchase so far, but I liked the fact that you get 3 figures and Tailpipe is pretty spiffy...
Mini Star Wars Anakin/Jedi Interceptor
United G2 Laser Prime (better colours than the Hasbro version IMHO)

a nice package arrived today full of G1 Goodies

*snip*

Mirage with Canadian Packaging
Iguanus
Bugly

Oh wow! - Nice acquisitions there Sharky! :eek::cool:
Both Iguanus and Bugly seem to be the most seldom in showing up, at least from my own POV so a big congratulations on those 2 man. ;):D


Bought my first Kreo in the form of Prowl today. Wasn't 100% convinced by the bot mode so I made quite a few changes, starting by raising the shoulders, beefing up the mid section, putting the windshield on his back etc. Going to try and sit the wheels currently on his forearms closer to his shoulders for even more cartoon accuracy. Also might try to twist the red stripe I've got on his back horizontally to resemble his roof siren. Kreo ****ing rocks!

*snip*

Congrats DD and glad to see yet another victim of Kreo's addictiveness, whilst the Official constructions seem a little... 'off', it is quite fun modifying and improving the figure with it's remaining pieces huh? ;):D


Some more g1 goodies

Backstreet
Guzzle
Grand Slam

*snip*

now all i need to do is find what i did wath raindance

Oh man, more sweet G1 finds Sharky! :eek::D
I really want to try and pickup a Backstreet, especially after just having read about him in 'Matrix Quest', but Grandslam & Raindance too as I'm yet to own a combiner on the Mini Cassette platform - That Guzzle cardback with it's art is simply divine too! :eek::cool:


Finally picked up my June Big W sale pieces :D
Not pictured Generations Scourge, Warpath and GoBots Bumblebee

*snip*

Good to see members still enjoying some DOTM hauls, congrats BB! ;):)


Finally my second set of Dinobots are complete:D ( not counting the accessories okay - just the figures) yay! Thanks to sideswipes brother for the figure :D

Slag has arrived:D:D

*snip*

Oh wow! - Congratulations Liege, yet another set! :eek:
You'll be able to start your own battalion of Dinobots shortly! ;):D


Love the dinobots, received my Snarl and Swoop as well from SB. I think I have enough and should stop collecting the dinobots, for now.:p

*snip*

More Dino Love! :D
Congratulations Hanprimus, it would seem you've already got a battalion of Dinobots! ;):cool:

I quite like G1 Ironhide, and Ratchet for that matter, for having a self contained battle platform but Blitz'v'ing is so damn cool huh?
Have you tested to see if Galvatron's sounds work?

Oh, and might I say you've made a fine choice for a mascot too! :D

Indeed it is and I agree, the designers on Kreo Sideswipe were surely smoking something with those shins/ankles. :p:D

Cheers man, indeed he is immaculate save for a minute amount of fine dust in various places and a couple of missing stickers; nothing that a cotton-bud and a trip to Reprolabels can't fix. ;):cool:

Thanks, the FP Shadow Scyther is legit which I got last year at retail from RK so $90? and the SG Rodimus is the KO by CHMS.

Definately yellow on purpose. I won an auction a week or so ago for some that were black. Perhaps it had something to do with year/country of release. I think i have a white one floating around somewhere too.

Thanks SB, the case was a freebie from robwin1974 himself - sort of came with the figure - if you buy the fig it comes with the case :D

Best to ask robwin where he gets his supply, heheheh. It does make the boxed figure look oh so... classy:) Makes me wanna buy those glass shelves and place it in there for better display.
