Check the board's sales every now and then for decent prices of FE Vehicon.

I got this major haul from BBTS the other day, Yoda's loving it as usual because he has more friends :)

Picked these up at a toy store in Moonee Ponds today. I was actually looking for Generations/Classics line figures since I knew the shop stocked Transformers and wasn't very busy and therefore might have some old stock, but as it turnedo ut they didn't, but I haven't seen Arcee in any of the other stores I've been to, so I made a snap decision and bought her. Could have picked up Starscream cheaper elsewhere, but since I was already in the shop I bought him anyway. I'm really liking the Cyberverse Prime series, but neither of their weapons tab in very well which is a bit of a bummer.

Thanks Goki,:D Happy to finally get scourge as have been looking for one for a long time and couldn't seem to get it at a reasonable price. Just lucky that one of our members was selling, So thought i had to get him to add to the RID collection.
One thing i have wondered is why we did not have it released here? As he was a main character in the series.

<shrugs> Your guess is as good as mine. Australia missed out on quite a few RID TFs such as:
+ Scourge
+ Sky Byte
+ Slapper
+ Gas Skunk
+ Dark Scream
+ Railspike
+ Midnight Express
+ Rapid Run
+ Nightcruz
+ Mirage GT
+ Scavenger
+ Cryotek
+ Sideways
+ Axer
+ Scourge (Destructicon)
+ Bludgeon
+ Air Attack Optimus Primal
+ Megabolt Megatron (although we did get Megabolt)
+ Ultra Magnus (Spychanger)
+ Optimus Prime (Spychanger)
+ X-Brawn (Spychanger)
+ Scourge (Spychanger)

It was a store exclusive in America (April 2002 (http://www.otca.com.au/archive1.html)), so was less likely to be released here than regular release figure. So were many of those you listed there.
Mega-class (today's Voyager class) was not here at all due to the number of beast toys still in stores (the first RiD wave was all beasts).

GoktimusPrime
3rd July 2012, 12:29 PM
Yeah, and considering how badly the TM2s shelfwarmed it's understandable that Australian retailers/Hasbro would have been reluctant on bringing over repaints. ;)

As for acquisitions, the last figure I bought was Prime Deluxe Arcee, and will most probably be the only figure of this line I'll pick up.

'Mega' was a great size-class that was ruined for us by TM Scavenger, TM2 Scavenger, Animorphs Ax and Beast Machines Cheetor. After those shelfwarmers, Australian retailers (and fans) missed out on great toys/sets like Blast Punch Primal, Nightcruz, Mirage GT & Scavenger, Sideways vs. Axer or Team Bullet Train.

I agree. Hasbro really should have called this toy Inferno as he's so obviously meant to be! At least Takara did the right thing and named their version Inferno though.

Did not know there was a TM2 Scavenger though???
News to me too! Perhaps he meant TM2 Cybershark?

Yes, but my guilty conscience insists that I return them to the seller. There's probably some collector out there eagerly awaiting their arrival. If it seems too good to be true it probably is (see below).

Would that I could! Sadly they will all be going back to their address of origin. I was actually expecting a very different package in that box, and the seller has more or less indicated he won't post it until he receives proof the items sent in error are on their way back to him. I'm quite annoyed over the whole thing actually! Maybe I should send him an empty box... :p

Don't be too envious, postage from the US put that up considerably and the card is bent pretty horrifically so no collector would be happy with it. I was still really pleased though. Shipping was $19 each but when combined it came to $30ish (eBay is not telling me the combined figure anymore). I also won a bid yesterday or the day before for a MIP Battle in Space Rodimus vs Cyclonus for $15 that I was pleased with. After shipping it comes out to the retail price here, but as none of the shops near me stock it and it's out of stock on the TRU website, I'm really pleased to have won it at that price on eBay. I would have paid that much for Cyclonus alone, but getting a die-cast Matrix and a somewhat redundant Rodimus figure with that was pretty awesome.

I now technically own 4 figures from that Rodimus mould (they haven't all arrived yet) which makes up a pretty hefty portion of my infant CHUG collection: 4 Rodimuses (Henkei, Classics, RtS x2), 2 Gen Kups (each with an iGear head), 1 RtS Galvatron, 1 United Wreck-Gar, 2 RtS Cyclonuses and a Classics Starscream. I guess it's a good thing I like Rodimus so much! I'm even thinking of picking up the United Rodimus figure too... but not until I flesh out my collection a bit more with Jazz, Scourge, Wheeljack, Tracks and anything else I can find a good deal on. I'm also going to customise one of my RtS Rodimuses with the canopy mod and a new paint job. I want a really movie accurate Hot Rod, but none of the versions of the mould fit the bill perfectly.

Technically this acquisition isn't new or a Tf at all, but it is is TF related so Im still posting it here heheheh. I got the two artworks waay back but didn't wanna spend so much in framing them as framing here in Aus for some reason costs an arm and a leg:rolleyes: so I kept on scouting til I found finally in one of those dollar shops the frame that I think would suit it well. The artwork came with its own matting stuck to it so I had to adjust it in the middle but the matte kinda shows irregularity.... still, it's not so bad.
Hanging these two as overhead my headboard:)

Thanks. I thought so too when I saw em which is why I didnt wanna just frame them with whatever but at the same time I didn't wanna spend too much that the frame is more expensive than the item itself. :o
I got them from ebay... uhmmmm not sure if it was 2 or 3 years ago.... as per the ebay literature in the auction - it was part of an exhibit of Transformers art in the US. There are still several from that same exhibit that that particular seller is selling. I just can't remember the seller's ID.

Big W Blacktown. They were not in the aisle where the TFs are . these were located at the powertools area - corner shelves. They seem to have scattered the toys to corner shelves all over the store so as to boost the sales but if one wasn't looking all over the store you'd miss it.

After careful consideration I decided to pick up a TFP Voyager Megatron today. I was hanging to see what Takara would do with their version and now that I've seen clearer pics of it, I know that I much prefer the Hasbro release. Was also quite chuffed to see he was less than $40 when I picked him up this evening. :)

I have to say, he doesn't look like much in the packaging but once you have him in hand he's really quite fun. Much weightier than I expected too. I'm surprisingly enjoying this toy a lot more than I thought I would! And boy does the display look a whole lot better with a voyager sized Megatron leading the troops. *boots deluxe Megatron into the distance*

RK order came in, received the following:
TF PRIME FE Bulkhead
Revoltech Bumblebee
FOC Jazz
FOC Optimus Prime
FOC Shockwave

So far have only opened Revoltech Bumblebee, very impressed, detailing is amazing, paint isn't the world's greatest but its still pretty good. I'd recommend picking him up, his scaling is also right to put him with the other DOTM figures.

Hi all,

My elderly neighbours, who cleaned for alot of years, said they found this and some old tonka toys at a real estate clean.

They asked if I wanted it. :D

Am I right in thinking this is Ironfist/Fistitron?

Where to find the weapon from now.

7th July 2012, 11:58 AM
It's Ironfist. "Fisitron" is the name given to the BotCon figure because they were unable to secure the rights to the Ironfist name, but that's the original Ironfist which is either G1 or G2 depending on which packaging it came in -- but since you got yours loose, it's impossible to tell. Hence why a lot of fans call these toys "G1.5" :D

The weapon isn't that huge a deal TBH (it's a bit gatling gun with a scope on a skinny stand). I wouldn't stress over not having it. :p

Big W Blacktown. They were not in the aisle where the TFs are . these were located at the powertools area - corner shelves. They seem to have scattered the toys to corner shelves all over the store so as to boost the sales but if one wasn't looking all over the store you'd miss it.
Couldn't find them. I only saw Leader BBs, masks and TF prime deluxes in the powertools area.

Hmmm I hope they didn't reshelf again, but that's where I found them. They also have the TF Prime Driller and Jackhammer Cyberverse
These are located at the opposite end of the store - the toys section is at the right side when you enter the store. but these were at the corner shelves at the opposite - left side past the manchester, pillows, covers etc. Then you go were they're selling parts for toilets stuff, screws nuts and bolts, - hardware - theyve placed em in the corners shelves of each aisle- basically along the hallway.

My acquisition for today

I'm not really after him myself, but I've got most of the hard-to-find cast of LSotW (still missing G1 Guzzle and Stalker), so I'm considering trying to get the full set, with CHUGUR versions for Perceptor, Kup, and Springer.Just as an update, it turns out Overlord is 1: missing the instructions (don't care), 2: has a damaged box (don't care), and 3: has body damage (deal breaker).
If it seems too good to be true...

The other, presumably undamaged Overlord was ~80000, or just short of $1000. Kinda costly for my tastes.:(

I'm so glad I bought mine before "Last Stand of the Wreckers" (Correct storyline I Think). Mine about 3 years ago (maybe a little more) cost me $275.00 Aus complete in box.

Just did a browse around Uncle pete's after work which is luckily I did coz I spotted the only TF prime Autobot Ratchet they had. Theyve re stocked so the stalls were full but since Im not collecting botshots and Ive already got the first waves, finding this figure is has made my day :D - it looks kinda small though in vehicle mode....

there's were lots in BigW Blacktown. Was it cheaper at Uncle Pete's?

Not sure , prolly not since BIgW is on Sale but I didnt go there coz I only had 15 minutes before the next train so I made a dash to Uncle Pete - they were $25 for deluxes ( full price IMO) so Im guessing it's cheaper in Big W.
Im still looking for Cyberverse Dreadwing though... wonder when the other stores will have him not just Myers (they've run out already)?

Wave one of the Generations FOC toys. They're neat, but...Tiny. My favourite would be Shockwave, he fits nicely with my Prime Decepticons if a little short.
I'm honestly not plussed by Optimus or Jazz. WFC Prime is a better toy for collectors but I can easily see younger kids enjoying this Prime. Jazz actually disappointed me a little. he's very small and the plastic feels flimsy. But something tells me I'd love a Wheelie repaint of THIS Jazz mold. No pics, my laptop is on the fritz and I'm borrowing housemate's Laptop to bring you this post.

Grimstone doesnt come with any sort of tech spec blurb. All the other PCC I've seen have it on the side of the box. Dunno if they've been omitted from Grimstone/Steamhammer wave, or if they dont come on Euro version box.

MtMtE #7 and the Autocracy TPB.

Must say the paper quality in Autocracy is great, but the complete lack of any extras is disappointing.

Ahh nice! Wish I knew about the markets when I was there

I would have not had a chance without the HD directions.(thanks again mate:)) Even with them some were hard to find and most didn't open till 12 o'clock (or 3 or not at all:p)
they did have most things but some of the prices weren't right. mib scorponok, dezarus and trypticon all 1200 each. (admittedly the exchange rate makes it sounds worse than it is, maybe 1k aud each..) victory leo and star sabre 600 each or 1k for both. got mine for just under 300, not great but it was the first old tf i saw that i needed so jumped on it:o

Give us the full low down! :D More pics?

i'll get some up when i get back. flights tomorrow. Here's my packing effort.
i think i got my priorities right.
1. drink duty free booze quota.
2. buy robots...
Or vise versa

Yeah sounds like the prices they had at the Cybertroncon. Just waaaaay overpriced and they were not even in MIB condition.

And packing the stuff, its a pain isnt it? Trying to make sure it safe and wont be squashed :D

Wave one of the Generations FOC toys. They're neat, but...Tiny. My favourite would be Shockwave, he fits nicely with my Prime Decepticons if a little short.
I'm honestly not plussed by Optimus or Jazz. WFC Prime is a better toy for collectors but I can easily see younger kids enjoying this Prime. Jazz actually disappointed me a little. he's very small and the plastic feels flimsy. But something tells me I'd love a Wheelie repaint of THIS Jazz mold. No pics, my laptop is on the fritz and I'm borrowing housemate's Laptop to bring you this post.

The zombie features are best shown off in robot mode, so I don't think its absolutely necessary to open it in order to enjoy it :) So I guess your next dilemma is whether to display the robot in packaging or just have that awesome tin-zombie face sharing back at you from somewhere prominent :p

My thoughts exactly, definitely a top score there for el Cranko. I'd prob keep him in the box myself, but only because I've got Takara Zomjumper patrolling the glass cabinet already.

Camera has gone AWOL so no pics but I did receive Hasbro Prime Deluxe Airachnid and Vehicon s'arvy. So...I can absolutely see why people won't like this toy but for me Airachnid is well worth having, and not just for completions sake.

The thing I love about this Airachnid toy is just how genuinely creepy she looks! The arms and huge holes in the hands are truly bizarre but they add a kind of freaky element which just appeals to me for some reason! :p I like my Decepticons to be dark and menacing, and from this point of view Airachnid bests even the incredibly sinister looking Soundwave. I also really dig the tiny moulded Decepticon faction logos - wicked! Just hope Reprolabels brings out the iconic chrome/mirror stickers for her shoulders, that would really tie everything together nicely.

Kinda hard to play with a toy when it's in box though. :o

So I guess your next dilemma is whether to display the robot in packaging or just have that awesome tin-zombie face sharing back at you from somewhere prominent :p
Or have the box with the zombie-face looking out, and display the toy out of box next to or in front of the box. crankcase76 says that he's already opened it before, so it's technically no longer sealed and you can't really "reseal" a toy that's already been unsealed. So whether you display this toy in or out of box, it won't change the condition of the toy (which would be loose mint w/ box). So might as well display the toy out of box and have the best of both worlds displaywise (plus it makes it easier to access when you want to play with it :)).

crankcase76: as Doubledealer confirmed, because you've cut the seal (tape), it's no longer mint sealed, but loose mint. You can still transform and play with this toy, as long as it doesn't suffer from any damage or noticeable play wear, it will still remain loose mint. Playing with it once in a while really isn't going to affect its condition now. You're toy's not sealed no more -- so you might as well enjoy it! :D

Anyway, today I got 2 things:
+ Latest issue of MTMTE
+ A Transformers ball (for my daughter) :)

Thanks Goki,

Probably will just leave him in the packet, even thou I have cut the seal it is the only SDCC toy I own. So will keep him locked up I think, anyway I have a CJ on display and plus I need more shelf room as well.:D
