Didn't it used to be benben's unofficial "job" to begin the monthly acquisitions threads? :rolleyes:

I hope people realise it's meant to be a joke :)

I just picked up Omega Supreme but I can't play with it because I'm at work.

Had a moment of excitement when I started opening the HLJ box and the first thing I saw was Jetfire!! But that was just the battle scene art on the back of the box :rolleyes:

Nice package arrived from the USA today - inside was a bulk lot of animated...

Deluxe Prowl
Deluxe Ratchet
Deluxe Bumblebee
Deluxe 2-pack Optimus Prime
Voyager Bulkhead
Voyager Optimus Prime
Voyager Grimlock :D

Yeah I already had Prowl and Ratchet but the guy wouldn't split up the lot so I'm trying to sell them on at cost (Bulkhead too as I plan to get the Leader one). As usual works out to about $20 per deluxe and $30 per voyager.

PICS!

Well, no RK package for me today afterall :(
But, hand delivered by my wife's friend after her trip to Japan, was this beauty, my first Beast Wars toy, TM-SP DX Convoy!
http://www.australian-postcodes.com/tm-sp-dx.jpg
She dinged the box a bit in her luggage, but i'm not complaining, he only cost $25 including shipping + COD charges! I would have got a Megatron (same price) but feared the boxes were too big .. and was right, talk about a waste of space! Also this toy has surprisingly the worst case of twist tie hell i've seen since i got back into TF's! But the end result was worth it, he really shows me how good a large size figure can be without electronics!

2nd July 2008, 01:40 PM
From Paul today..(thanks)
- Universe Downshift....looking cooler with each repaint variant!

BigW's early sale...@ $19

Yes yes...both are spares. Tempted to get the voyagers but thinking they won't be missed.

Iceburn got the Stealth Bumblebee for me today, and I gave him Universe Downshift (finally got rid of it) so it evened out my total number.

I was playing with Omega last night and it's very cool to finally have one, but the motor's noisy huh?

I suspect htey're holding out for hte morning of sales. They are very good at holding onto stock. At BigW Epping today, I saw a lot of unopened boxes being amassed - no doubt to stock after close

Will keep an eye out for u as I'm after them myself

First up....

Extreme right (Universe Downshift and Movie Stealth Bumblbee from BigW) are what i've mentioned earlier. From DirtyDigger (Animated 2pack, Bumblebee and Ratchet). The rest are from the Kmart Sale!! - Yes, I've opened up Bumblebee and Prowl...the others (spares) will be opened today

http://img68.imageshack.us/img68/1199/p7030538gi9.jpg

Totally Awesome night guys!

This is from Kmart too and for my wife-to-be:
(can't seem to find the one that was on the first few pages of the catalogue!) I'm going hunting for it again today....

woo! i gots me two henkai crystal convoys

Ooooh. Envy on the Crystal Convoys... is one for sale? :rolleyes:

I'm going to do one big update that spans back to late May, which I've held off doing due to the board's pic issues, so I ask the purists to forgive me for not breaking this up into the appropriate, separate, acquisition threads:

1. First up, at the end of May, LCZ128 and I ordered Takara's two Battle Mode (aka Premium) figs, Leader Prime and Bumblebee.

http://lindalane.com/temporary/tf/2008061.jpg

2. Next, spread out through June, I grabbed Animated Wave 1 and 2 Deluxes, the 2 pack, and Voyager Prime (the last, courtesy of STL, my errand boy):

http://lindalane.com/temporary/tf/2008062.jpg

3. In between some of those purchases, I grabbed my first MP, the venerable MP4. Very cool. Although the fact that the front facia of the cab in alt mode is not flush is almost unforgivable.

http://lindalane.com/temporary/tf/2008063.jpg

4. I scored some extra Hasbro Classics Voyagers from the Myer sale (ignore those Henkei's. It was too high up to separate for the pic):

http://lindalane.com/temporary/tf/2008064.jpg

5. July 1st, Alpha Trion and Weirdwolf arrived, ALMOST completing my Classics, only leaving Clear Mirage to be acquired.

http://lindalane.com/temporary/tf/2008065.jpghttp://lindalane.com/temporary/tf/2008066.jpg

6. Last night, we had an absolute ball at Kmart. We were out to 3AM and due to our ruthless price matching and cashier error, I'm positive Kmart lost money due to our visit :D. Right before, Digger passed on the Lego AT-AT he grabbed for me earlier in the week, and I put a Millennium Falcon on lay-by! (w00t! Excuse the stock photo. I'll post a more personal photo once I've paid it off ;)). I, like the rest of us, also grabbed a bunch of Animated at RIDICULOUS PRICES ($19 for Voyagers, $18 for Deluxes) which I only purchased in order to return my previously purchased-at-full-retail-priced figures. Again, I ask the purists me, this time for the Non-TF acquisitions. It's all just so much more impressive in one post :)

http://lindalane.com/temporary/tf/2008067.jpg
http://lindalane.com/temporary/tf/falcon.png

7. This morning, I did some more price matching around reducing the price of my existing collecting and got these two from TRU for the combined price of $49.66 (Thanks Big W Catalog!)

http://lindalane.com/temporary/tf/2008068.jpg

8. Now, best for last. I got this in June, and again, while it arguable belongs in the Non-TF section, this one I'm sure even the purists will forgive. Inspired by gamblor and LCZ, I got me a "piece o' glass"!

I did a lot of "umm"-ing and "ahh"-ing about how to approach putting my collection in glass, and decided that the Ikea Detolf was the best way for me to go for now. It's cheap ($179), looks nice, and I can get three of them for about the same price as one larger piece of glass, like Gamblor's. Also, I figured for $180, it was a good starter piece, if only to help me evaluate future glass purchases. Regardless of all of that, I'm thrilled! Here she is:

http://lindalane.com/temporary/tf/2008069.jpg

I'll update my collection thread with more detailed pics of the shelf's contents.

That's it!!! It's great to have the board back at capacity!!!

3rd July 2008, 02:10 PM
Beautiful Jay. :) After seeing lcz's glass cabinet last night and now yours I would so rush out and buy one tonight....if I had the room.:(

Good score on those TRU Voyagers as well. Hanging to find them myself.

Awesome haul for me today. Not quite as good as Jaydisc of course but definately good :P

Went to Kmart thinking of getting me the scouts, maybe some Animated if they were cheap. Since everything was 20% off, and as a Coles Group Employee I'm entitled to 5% more discount, I snagged Animated Ratchet, Blackarachnia and Cybertron Mode Optimus Prime (who I can't believe I almost passed up! He's excellent! Thanks for the tip Jay :)) and I also got the Allspark scouts Warpath, Storm Surge and Crosshairs - these three I know are repaints, but I never owned the originals.

I will go back and price match Big W's Voyager Prices to Kmart before the week is out and try and get myself Evac and a couple cheap movie figures at prices I'm actually willing to pay.

Still can't find Animated Voyager Optimus Prime. I hope he's out when Target have their sale.

Congrats Kurdt!

And Orion, how could you call that bad kharma? The fact that Hasbro AU tries to sell you something that retails for USD20 for AUD50 is the bad kharma. He didn't freakin' steal it!!

Take it back. Kmart won't lose out. They'll happily give you another, and send the old one back to Hasbro, who will hopefully start getting the idea that it's not worth cutting so many corners.

Nice buying and having stuff AVAILABLE on sale. :D Thanks goodness Kmart in Blacktown isn't as packed with rampaging moms laybying stuff. Went in the TF shelf and went WT.... where's all the TFs? There were only a handful ... then I went around a little to the side section where it says MORE TOYS HERE... true enough, an aisle full of TFM and SWTF and TFA , whew!

here what I got.... the TFM Evac I got from Big W as well as some Lego, the rest from Kmart. Might have to go back next week ( thank goodness its a 2 week sale) to layby more new Lego City packs. As usual I passed up on Bulkhead - waiting for Leader class and Bumblebee, waiting for activator size. After seeing Kyles post of size comparison even though he looks like a stocky midget in activator size I can deal with that rather than his hydrocephalic, giant deluxe version... almost missed Blackarachnia, she wasnt on the shleves, but on one of the side trolleys seems like someone tried to hide the 3 remaining figures under a bunch of ratchets...

okies just a small edit. Just finished posting this then the postie rings and its one of the 2 packages ive been waiting for the whole week. Still one more which Im really anxious about coz it shouldve been here earlier but still no sign ( G1 reflector)....

Glad to hear. Good choice. Remember there's no rush though. Just patiently wait until it's in stock again. ;)

I'm a bit addicted to this price matching stuff, and after a few runs, I'm a bit experienced, so I scoped out the best register to go to, and with a bit of bulldozering, a Big W catalog, the Kmart Price Guarantee AND the extra 20% off, this is my best work yet:

*looks at Ginrai Powermaster prime Reissue*
:D

That's different though. The Hasbro 'reissue' of Powermaster Prime is Powermaster Prime. Yeah its the Ginrai 'improved' version of the mold but the only real differences from the original release of one to the other was just the shiny chrome and retractable fists (not counting Apex/God Bomber armor).

To me the difference qualify more as improvement to the mold than something that defines the character as they are both the same.

So for toy wise for me the difference between a PM Prime and Ginrai is the package that it came with.

So I have the Hasbro commemorative reissue of Power Master Prime released with the Ginrai improved mold. To me its Power Master Prime.

I did not like the plainness of the original PM Prime release as it felt real cheap but loved the Ginrai mold upgrades made by Takara...However I had watched Masterforce and was all too aware of the difference between PM Prime and Ginrai to buy a Ginrai and 'pretend' it was a Powermaster Prime.

The compromise?

I bought the Hasbro Commemorative released that had the Ginrai upgrades plus it was called Optimus Prime so I didn't have to pretend otherwise because officially it was him.

In the future I may get a Ginrai who will be 99% the same as my Hasbro reissue PM Prime with the only real difference being the packaging they came in but for me as a character driven collector, it would be two entirely different characters who look almost the same.

kup is right:
Apex Armour Optimus Prime = Optimus Prime
Ginrai =/= Optimus Prime

...and it's not just the packaging; Ginrai doesn't have that awful over-extended chrome-stripped missile that AAOP has. :)

Excately, although I do like the name Meister better...I sitll refer him to as Jazz
Usually I say "Jazz" when speaking in English and "Meister" when speaking in Japanese, regardless of if the toy is from Hasbro or Takara. To me the Anglophone names just 'roll off' my tongue easier when I speak in English and the Japonic names likewise when speaking in Japanese.

For example, when speaking in Japanese I will refer to Autobots/Maximals as "Cybertrons" and Decepticons/Predacons" as "Destrons" - but when I speak in English I usually just use the Anglophone names, even if I'm referring to a Japanese series. e.g.: when speaking in English I will refer to Breast Force as Decepticons, not Destrons. I just find that it feels strange to use the Japonic names when speaking in English and vice versa when speaking in Japanese. *shrug*

I'm still surprised that the movie Transformers all retained their Anglophone names in Japan, e.g.: movie Jazz is called "Jazz" in Japan, not Meister et al.

- GF Dinoshout
- GF Thundercracker
- Robot Masters Road Rocket
- GF Road Storm
- Wave 1 and 2 Movie Robot Heroes

I can't say I'm as impressed as I thought I would be w/ the Ironhide Robot Heroes. The detailing's a bit disappointing for my favourite TFM character/toy. But Dispensor and Starscream are great. Brawl too! The Battle-mask BB is also very cool.

GF Thundercracker actually was a very snug toy. All other versions I've got of him do not clip in very snugly at the gunbarrel. I wouldn't have gotten this if I wasn't trying to complete Galaxy Force and grab the tech spec trading cards though.

Dino-shout is quite a cool toy imo. Very neat for a Scout.

- TFM Voyager Mudflap and Inferno

- TFM Ultra Jetstorm

Jetstorm's also a spare but he's custom fodder for down the line. Has anyone noticed how cool the Animated Deluxe boxes look when you line them up on the side? I really really dig it. Heck, it makes me want to actually buy MISB versions just so I can display them like that when I find enough space.

From my price-matching endeavours yesterday for our fellow board members Pansy and Powdered Sunflower :
http://img185.imageshack.us/img185/2585/dscf3798xz9.jpg (http://img185.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dscf3798xz9.jpg)

'Twas the hardest attempt I'd had to date w/ price-matching. I tried first Greensborough which had no shortage of the Voyagers. Relying on the receipt from last Wednesday, the BigW phone number, I'd figured I'd easily pull it off. I approached the young service counter chick at the service desk and she was about to put it thru when her senior walked up and asked what's all this about? She explained and then the senior turned to me, and told me that I had to present the catalogue. I told her that I had BigW's phone number, she could call them to confirm the sale was still going on. She then said that the onus of proof was on me to prove it. I said that since she'd have to call BigW anyway to ask if the item was in stock, why didn't she do that and ask if the sale was in fact going on. She just smugly said, not my problem. No catalogue, no price match. As you can imagine, I was very agitated at that stage but kept my composure. The younger chick went into bat for me too, saying that it's just a phone call but her senior glared at her and she went quiet as a mouse. I said to her, look at the receipt; another K-Mart store less than 5 days ago, had price-matched for me. I asked her nicely if she could contact that K-Mart. She said she couldn't do that. I asked why? And she said that's just their policy. She then said something about if BigW's so great, why don't you go out there and get it? The service counter chick and I exchanged glances and she said apologised to me that she couldn't do it anymore and offered to put it on hold w/out layby. (not that it mattered btw since it'd mean driving back when instead I could try another K-Mart). It was her rude and abrasive manner that really irritated me. The other chick clearly saw no problem and inconvenience and could see her senior was just being a self-important gnat for the sake of it. It was my first knockback price-matching and my failure stirred me forward, making it almost a personal vendetta even though the toys I was hunting weren't for me. I was determined to see it through.

Arriving at the new Westfield in Mill Park/South Morang, I equipped myself with a catalogue and regathered my composure so as to not come across as aggressive. Whenever I price-match, I always do it with a smile and an unassuming manner. In this case, I grabbed both a movie Voyager (Starscream above), two Scouts, and then the 3 Animated Voyagers. The rationale was that the movie Voyager would match the one in the catalogue and then I could point to the "Assorted Styles" to say that the Animated Voyagers fitted that mold. The two Scouts were detractors to prevent it from appearing I was there to just purely price-match. The ladies here were extremely helpful and friendly. It certainly helped that I was courteous. The first checkout chick and I had a good 7 min casual conversation despite the fact that the line was queuing up while her boss tried to figure out the price to enter. I actually said to her, I really shld move aside so you can serve the counters. She just said all she had to do was smile and they could wait and we continued chatting though I did at times turn to people in the queue behind me to courteously inform them I was taking awhile. The manager then apologised to me for making me wait. She then personally put through the prices in (she was smart tho, she realised there was an extra 20% I'd be getting if they just entered the price of $23 odd) and processed it She even referred to me as "Mr. [STL's last name]" and thanked me numerous times for my patience. We joked about some Gobstoppers I was buying and how trips to the dentist can be a horrible experience. I said bye to her and the other checkout chick and left.

The two experiences were just so overwhelmingly different. I had a nice sense of satisfaction of being able to price-match.

Anyways, my debrief as well as experience just in case anyone else intends to try.

Oh, and look out for my column later this week. ;)

When lcz128 and I went to TRU to grab the Inferno/Mudflap, the guy had to grab a ladder to get Jetstorm too. He was pretty sure they were all the same figure until I asked him to look more closely.

Keep the blinds/curtains of his room more than half-closed while at the same time keeping him out of direct sunlight :)

As promised, photos of Crossover Venom! I think you guys are gonna be pleasantly surprised by this guy (and hopefully the range!). His detailing is awesome in both modes (wait till you see his head up close), and the car is virtually flawless (the bottom rivals Alt/BT for how well it hides robot mode).

http://www.australian-postcodes.com/venom-muscle.jpg

His chest transform is a pain in the ass, no thanks to Hasbro instructions, but rest assured he does clip in everywhere very nice. Only real problem i have with him so far, is his articulation is hindered a bit from wheels on shoulders and big knees. Surprisingly, he's not stubby in person like most other photos we've seen.

- Botcon 2008 Starscream
- Botcon 2008 Divebomb w/ bio card
- Botcon 2008 Razorclaw
- Botcon 2008 Ricochet
- TFM Deep Space Starscream

Firstly, you might notice the aircraft carrier. My gf's friend got it for me. I've been hangin' out with her a bit while my gf is o/s and i've been mentioning how I wanted display sets for my TFs. She usually (well, regularly) teases me about my obsession but I was quite surprised to find this. It really is excellent as a display piece. You can set up a whole of cool battle scenes with it and its great w/ the Superlink/Energon Aerialbots/Combaticons.

While DSS and Botcon 2008 Starscream were wanted doubles, Razorclaw and Divebomb were not. The seller for my Ricochet actually lost his bio-card and offered to compensate by giving me Razorclaw for free. The Divebomb I did not expect at all when I opened the package but it seems he is trying to compensate me for making me wait almost 1 and half months for the item. Basically first he lost contact, then told me he lost the bio card and told me he'd give me extra mini-con, then lost contact, then said the item would arrive within 7 days.

I'm not sure what to do with those two. They're not exactly crying out to be kept...

Oh, and I'm also torn about what feedback to leave the seller now. I was originally going to give him a negative b/c of the time I had to wait. However, since he's given me a spare Divebomb w/ bio card I feel like I should give him a positive. I contemplated a gray too but am not totally sure. What do u guys reckon?

And w/ a bit of help:

I originally wasn't going to keep Stealth BB but then I opened the toy and played with it and then thought about Goldbug. And I reckon he makes a fine looking one with the inverted BB08 colours. Really digging him.

Wow, Stealth BB's bot mode looks pretty good in your pic. Not bad at all.

Awesome aircraft carrier and I'd give the seller positive. I rarely judge a seller on an error, but moreover how they deal with it.

Picked up the new Universe Legends Starscream last night from Kmart! I got it 20% off, cos the sign they had up read "20% off Transformers", which was actually incorrect... it should have been "selected"! ;)

Anyways, I asked the guy and he said they'd have to do it :D I only wish they'd had other TFs there that weren't already on special, so I could get them cheaper!
