AoE Voyager Drift from TRU & AoE Deluxe Hot Shot from Big W.

These are $17 right now on Amazon. Not sure if I should jump on him and Slog who is also $17.

I just don't really want anything associated with that movie. Apart from maybe Black Knight Grimlock.

Wow that sucks. What do we think is the deal? Trying to force us to buy at inflated local prices?

Good timing I guess at least as I've got most of what I wanted for the year in the past two weeks in 2 x Jetfire, Rhinox, Masterpiece Smokescreen and Wheeljack. Hopefully no problems with Wheeljack as he was shipped a little over half a week ago from a Japan seller.

My brother picked up the Hasbro MP-03 Grimlock from Toys'R'Us on Saturday, so I did a quick comparison vid between it and the original Takara MP-8 Grimlock. Here's the vid :)

Hope you can check it out. In a side by side, it's definitely clear that Hasbro cut some corners!

TRU was actually about $10 cheaper than Kmart. TRU are currently discounting their AoE toys.

this actually happened in september but i wanted to wait until windblade arrived.. mairghread scott held a competition on her tumblr to suggest a song for any of the characters/relationships in the windblade series, and I WON A THING for the first time ever in my life, a signed copy of #3, for my suggestion of Gun by Chvrches (http://youtu.be/ktoaj1IpTbw) as a song for windblade / her character development via starscream :D

also if you remove the flippy panel on metroplex's shoulder and fold in windblade's heels, she slots in so perfectly that it almost seems intended

So I finally received my "Transformers: Legacy - The Art of Transformers Packaging" book from Amazon, although, not entirely in a fashion or state that I was expecting...

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B1o85DkCMAEPWJ8.jpg:large


...and with trepidation, I removed the poly-composite "Hessian" bag to reveal the package-proper...

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B1o86Y2CEAA5_5P.jpg:large


...to reveal what I've gotta say is the single worst packing job I've ever received from Amazon, all I can say is that this is very telling of their recent packaging cutbacks resultant of their recent fiscal losses (I suspect)...

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B1o87qVCAAADGFX.jpg:large


...which lead me to contemplate for several minutes evening turning the book over to see what awaited me, I did and was elated in relief by what confronted me: A safe & sound "Coffee Table" reference book of glorious art! :D

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B1pFiCgCcAAy78_.jpg:large


Besides some very subtle impact-creasing to the spine's bottom end, I'm really rather surprised it's in as good a state as it is, as Amazon's effort in preparing such a highly anticipated and malignly delayed tome for a trans-pacific journey is just piss-poor. :mad:

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B1pGUvMCYAAi5tb.jpg:large


I've had this thing on preorder since January 17 and it's awesome to finally have it, I just would've preferred for it to have arrived in a far superior manner to how it actually did. :o

Mine arrived similar to yours Hursticon, the outer package was in taters ... it must've been tossed around a bit I suspect, as the bottom left corner on the front was torn :( ... I even marked it as gift too :(

At least I have it now though, just wish the condition was better

i did consider that option, but luckily mine arrived safely, with bubble wrap too. I guess it might be a case of who's on shift during the packing process and how items are shipped out? Doesn't seem like it's a consistent effort on Amazon's part

Sinnertwin
18th November 2014, 10:04 AM
I use a cloth and a make up/paint brush or cotton bud for those hard to reach places. I'd try and avoid using a damp cloth as the excess dust may seep into the cracks and make it more difficult to remove. Primus is a large figure, so even a vacuum with the appropriate attachment may be a quick and easy option

I bought BH Wheeljack a while back. Pretty loose joint and fragile plastic. Bleh.

Guess avoid the Beast hunter toys from Toys R us eh?
Thankfully this month did give me some classics (Mostly Transformers Armada, loving the Megatron and Demolisher set I bought)

Just realized something I never did before... I had this toy too when I was a kid and I never picked it up...

When in bird mode and the missile is attached... it certainly looks like a gianormous reproductive weapon of mass destruction! :eek:

and it looks like its ready to be fired!

i was kind of curious so looked it up on wikipedia, essentially it seems that literally yes it cruises along, as opposed to something that follows a ballistic trajectory.

MP Wheeljack for $75 from TRU.
Most excellent! With the discount you're paying about the same as what preordering the TakTOM version would've costed you plus postage, only with the added bonuses of immediate ownership (so much better than the eternal wait for shipping!), easier exchange/refund options if there's any issues, and the instructions & bio in a language that you can understand! :D

As far as I'm aware the Takara animated figures aren't necesarily metallic so much as they are shiny and the Habro ones are a matte finish, much more like the appearance of the show

Hehe, you know me all too well Liege! :D

I have seen the Mashers one a couple of times at my local Big W and whilst I quite like it, I don't like it enough to spend $30 on it :o

That price to me is just a joke so I'll wait until it hits $20 or less and in the meantime I'll enjoy this awesome little mashup-ridiculousness that is Angry Birds: Soundwave-Pig! :D

Have you tried calling every TRU in the Sydney metropolitan area? Because that's what I did when I was after MP Optimus Prime until I finally found a TRU that had one in stock, then got them to reserve the toy for me. If that doesn't work, call TRU head office and ask them to source one for you.
P.S.: Gofigure is selling an MP Wheeljack at <AU RRP here (http://otca.com.au/boards/showthread.php?t=19838) ;)

I haven't, but I looked online and it's cheaper and easier to just grab wheeljack from there. Sure I have to wait a while but once it gets here, it'll be worth the wait :D
