And all it took was a completely different writer to make him a good character!
..Sorry Shane.

(I have stuff on the way for July. I'm waiting patiently by the postbox.)

EDIT: And Transformers Prime Cyberverse Commander Ultra Magnus and Skyquake arrived. Cyberverse collection complete! For now anyway.

Two weeks ago I came second in a small give-away competition on the IDW Forums and received the IDW MTMTE TPB #1.

Today, I popped into Classic Comics on Bourke Street (I didn't even know the place existed until this morning) and picked up TPB #2 of MTMTE and TPB #1 of RID. They were $22 each, which seemed like a good price for a 5-issue book.

I would say that's a pretty good price, excellent even.

I was pretty surprised to see them so cheap. Everywhere else I've looked (including online) seems to have them $30+.

Generations FOC Wreckers Wave- Impactor, Whirl, Roadbuster, Topspin and Twin Twist. Not shown A horrible combined mode.
(Seriously. These are terrible transformers. Not poor quality or flimsy they're just...bad. too many compromises have been made to make a robot/vehicle/limb and everything suffers for it. A lot of my eagerness to get an FOC Bruticus has been dulled.)

http://i1249.photobucket.com/albums/hh508/Tallestblue/2013-07-03181056_zpsca57f757.jpg (http://s1249.photobucket.com/user/Tallestblue/media/2013-07-03181056_zpsca57f757.jpg.html)

So hooray for actual GOOD Transformers!

Transformers Prime Cyberverse Commander Shockwave, Ultra Magnus and Skyquake, and Transformers Generations 30th Anniversary Legends Starscream with Waspinator and Megatron with ChopShop.

now these guys I love. I'm a sucker for the Prime Cyberverse figures, but Legends Starscream and Waspinator are perfect. something about the idea of the two of them working together and bickering all the while is wonderful. Megatron is neat too, although I think he'd work better in his traditional colour scheme. perhaps Takara might do that?

If so, that toy's an Ultra not a Voyager (Ultras cost $70 whereas Voyagers are $45). :)

Pic to come, after I've flattened out the card, and really assessed what it is.

Card is a beater. It's all bent up. Whole, just bent. With some flattening, it may be acceptable for display.

I couldn't pass it up for $14.

As a classics collector who is a life long Decepticon fan this figure has constantly eluded me since I started collecting in 2010. In my mind the 1988 cons were the last good lot of g1 American figs. Japan's victory and the euro figs of 91 were great as well but nothing the Americans did reached 88 levels of awesome again.

This arrived today. Absolutely thrilled, as it's a definite grail item for me. Beautiful tight joints. It's missing the chest sticker, but that's pretty normal, as they're just flimsy paper.

After all the dicking around I've done to try and get everyone in Wave 1 (in the end I've just spent nearly $10 ordering Dirge on ebay) - I found Wave 2 all in one go!

Found at Big W while on holiday in Bathurst NSW

I picked up some Lego pieces that were recommended to me as a solution to that. They're neck-pieces with a back-piece, so you can still have the Kreons look right and actually see the chest art.

They were only 8cents a piece (plus shipping), and available in a few different colours, including greys that blend well.

It's been quite a few months since I've had anything come in, but when it rains it pours - pre-orders! Lot from RK aside from TFSS Scourge.

Aside from their obvious gimmick (which I am a poor sucker for), I find it really hard to recommend the Go! Combiners. The plastic they used feels strong and I have yet to find any stress marks, but it does not feel premium. I guess I was expecting a bit more in that area, and in paint aps. Whilst the combiner fists can hold his weapons steadily, the 5mm ports are just slightly too big to hold Microns which defeats the purpose of their combined sword mode for me. Lastly I can find no way to love Jinbu's plane, robot, combiner torso, combiner legs, or combiner head modes.

Senator Rabat is a work of art...

First,Take DotM deluxe Laserbeak. You have to remove the head, tail, and the front torso that hold the legs. Some unscrewing is nessessary.

Transform Bee in robot mode. Pull back the roof kibble on his back enough to squeeze the back torso part that hold the wings on his back, the hollow part toward the bot.

Squeeze everithing so that it all hold tight. Rotate the wings in the right direction..

If you did it right, everything should hold well. No tie-wrap, no strings, no screws, no glue needed at all.

Give the Bee original weapon to another figure and give both Lazerbeack guns to your new and scary figure!

Uh, cheers anon. I think there's also way to do it while keeping Laserbeak's legs too.


And now that I'm at my desktop I can properly see what you did to his eyes. Yikes! I thought it was just the light at first, but you've made him look downright terrifying. :D Awesome!

Please forgive the horrible photo.

Latest BBTS order arrived today, consisting of:

Encore 19 Big Mission Cassette 3 Set

Generations Legends Series 2 - Starscream and Megatron. Starcream is AWESOME. So thrilled to finally get a toy of this beautiful Guidi design!!

Cyberverse Prowl

Ultimate Gift Set (It was only $20)

Kre-O Beast Hunters Dragon Assault and Venom Strike Sets x 2 of each

Beast Saga Kingdom Of Sea Death Set

Igear PP05 Reissue (the one with the extra Tote head. I just didn't want all the extra accessories, 3 Ironhide heads is enough, really)

iGear Bushwhacker (I really like the look of this guy, just not as Outback. He'll be displayed with the weird alternate head, as either an arctic guy named Frostbite or the first Autobot raver named Glitz)

iGear Cogz

Igear Veer

Pacific Rim series 1 figures, set of 3 (need I say any more?)

Of course, the DAY after I shipped this, the Rainmakers and series 1 Construct-Bots came into stock. Grrr.

Nice haul man! :eek: Some fantastic items in there. :cool:

Got 9 of the new Kre-O Microchangers.

Some jerk had taken all the vehicons, Acid Wings (noooooo!!!!!), and Lugnuts.

I have to say, Arcee is, hands down, the best Kre-O they've made. Just beautiful. Ironhide's helmet works perfectly, and she just looks perfect: feminine and badass.

17th July 2013, 05:15 PM
I'm not a huge fan of Kre-Os, but I did get Arcee and I do agree that she's one of the better ones. I do like how she doesn't conceal the paint apps on her body with some kind of vest or armour like other Kreons do.

They look nice to me, but I wish they had done the curves thing that Lego does on their female minifigs, as I think it would capture her shape more.

They look nice to me, but I wish they had done the curves thing that Lego does on their female minifigs, as I think it would capture her shape more.
I'm personally really glad that they didn't do this for 2 reasons:

1) It would make it more difficult for Hasbro to reuse the same mould-parts for other characters (unless they made more female Kre-O TFs).

2) I'm not a big fan of the female Lego Friends figures as they project this body image stereotype onto young girls. The standard Lego figure is androgenous^androgynous so it can work with either males or females, I don't see the need to have feminised Lego figures... especially when they don't make masculinised male Lego figures for superheros etc. Lego Batman and Spider-Man look like the standard androgenous body shape instead of having ripping pecs etc. :/ Also, part of the appeal of Lego figures to me is having a variety of characters using the standard androngeous^androgynous body shape! Changing it feels like 'cheating' to me. :o

Received Quakewave yesterday - my first 3rd party figure.

Besides one loose hand (opaque version) - thickened the ball joint post up with some clear nail polish, it's incredible. Really digging it. Plus, it's the version with (obviously) the opaque hand/gun, as well as the new arm piece for the hose placement.

This month is pretty quiet for me - a couple of Mega-SCFs coming in, but most of my stuff should ship (including Metroplex, MP Soundwave(s), Acid Storm) to get here early next month.

Certainly. I've ordered Soundwave from Robot Kingdom, and Acid Storm (and a 66 Batmobile) from toysrus.com vis MyUS for dropshipping.

I could order the Batmobile from ToysRUs, but iParcel screwed up, or is not compatible with Chrome for Mac or something. It was an absolute PITA and I had to contact them to cancel, as TRU had no record of the order. By the time I arranged a dropshipping account, SW was sold out.

Soundwave should ship out August 1st, and the Acid Storm/Batmobile should be shipping out any day now, just set it to ship from MyUS after it arrived earlier today (Wed US time).

Yeah, with a couple of exceptions, I'm exclusively Hasbro for MP figures.

Got Airachnid today. I know everyone says she's a rubbish toy, but my justification is she's a show character (I have the rest of 'em) and it was only $10. Lots of complaints about Knock Out too but I recently opened him and thought he was alright. This new girl may stay sealed for a while though.

She is a bit rubbish but like you said, got to have her because she's in the show. I recommend the legends of you can find it at a woolies. It's almost a better toy.

Knock out is fine once you figure out his arms though I wish they'd spent the paint budget on highlights and not a color the same as his plastic. ..

Interesting pick up today... driving through one of the suburbs with curbside collection and my wife said she saw a transformer. Went back and picked up an Animated Ultra Magnus. (Assume that counts as an aquisition? :))

Didn't know who it was at the time becasue I've not followed that line but managed to look him up... his helmet spikes have broken off, missing the 2 knee guards and the 2 small panels at the back of the cab and his hammer but otherwise pretty good knick! The electronics and lights even work (didn't know about them either until I realised the shoulders locked in :o)!!

That sucks to hear Millhouse ...hopefully acidstorm wasn't damage at all..? give you even more reason to pop him open and played with :) ... so how is he...you going to review him?.. post some pics... im still waiting for my to come when my friend has the time to post it ...

I'm pretty flat out this week, plus I figure that there's a tonne of reviews on the net already. It's cool, but its another seeker, y'know? Decided he's probably going to be displayed in alt mode.

Figure looks to be fine. Batmobile took the brunt of the damage, but even that's ok.

A couple of strongly worded emails to Toys R Us and I've got a 20% refund coming my way. However, since the damn reshipping from my dropshipper cost way more than anticipated (dimensional weight was a killer... the box from TRU was 2ft x 1ft x 1ft, so dimensional weight was 25 pounds), it goes onto a credit card that copped it this month.

Oh yay! Enough for everyone! Well me at least :P -- Nice haul though, did you pay for the whole case?

As for me I picked up a YOTS Optimus, which I must say I do love. But he does sadly have a few flaws. I have to keep his chest doors closed due to one of them being really weak, feels like it wants to snap and has stress marks on it. Pops right off if I try to bend it all the way out, being the main one. And a nice T-Shirt from my sister.
