It took six months from placing on pre-order with Little Toy Company, and finally got my Quintesson Judge, Slitherfang as its pet, and Rung as a perfectly sized prisoner with (to my mind anyway) a passing resemblance to a Lithone. Am pretty happy with them and did not even suffer too much with attaching the spare heads.

Won an eBay auction for a busted up TFA Magnus over the weekend and he showed up today.

The right facing shoulder was glued shut and both the antenna were snapped off, perfect candidate for some radical customisation.

MP Shattered Glass Optimus Prime from eBay.

Edit: Just realised after transforming it, that the right side mirror has been broken off. Does fit in with the broken window aesthetic, so I'm not too upset plus it only cost me $160 shipped and otherwise complete with everything.

Funny you should mention that, when I was rearranging my collection a short time ago, I realised my Prime was missing a piece too. Back of his shoulder. So doesn't bother me too much either coz I display the front lol

Earthrise Sunstreaker, Trailbreaker, Runamuck, and Gen Select Tigertrack and G2 Sandstorm all via The Little Toy Company.

Finished what I want from Earthrise now. Having now finally seen Sunstreaker in person I’m sadly unimpressed by the chest (which I was hoping was just looks-odd-in-photos thing)

Could you explain your chest issue please? I also find the chest quite off putting due to what i can see is a massive color mismatch but everyone i have spoken to online says it doesnt look that way in the flesh.....

I'm not speaking for Paulbot, but I can confirm the chest (and forearm) colour mismatch is horrible IIRL. Altho will admit it does look even worse in some photos.

I've seen many people saying the same, that's it's not bad in person, so that was my expectation.

But in person, the difference is noticeable to a degree I'm not happy with. In the right angle, under the right sort of globe it can kind of pass, but for the most part I can just see the yellow paint standing out.

It most definitely is a mismatch - I also have a copy on my shelf.
I was just looking at your photo and it's glaringly obvious from here.

Yellow paint and plastic are notoriously hard to match. Just look at pretty much any movie Bumblebee ever.

Skyfire
15th March 2021, 09:16 PM
Yup, Sunstreaker's yellow paint is obviously different in photos and real life. Here's mine. (http://www.otca.com.au/boards/showthread.php/27608-A-curious-Earthrise-Sunstreaker?p=636522#post636522)

Netflix Megatron from Kmart; Armada Thundercracker, Tidal Wave, Wheeljack and 21 Minicons from MayzaPrime on eBay; Gen Selects Black Roritchi, SG OP and Ratchet and 3rd Patrol Cassettes from DorksideToys.

Also was able to get in an order during Target's toy sale for click and collect. 4 Deluxes and 2 Botbot packs. Managed to get 1 of each deluxe. Was going to return Paleotrex since I already have one but decided to keep it.

Siege Springer from Amazon. I did buy it previously over a year ago but sold it off as I was never a huge Springer fan. Kinda needed it again to complete the cast since they are now releasing Blurr, Kup etc.:rolleyes:

That's it for retail figures for me for this month, unless I can find Airrazor.

From Big W, now reduced to $5 each (from $10 from $19):

The price is now much closer to the 1989/1990 price for these little bots. :)
