My apologies for the double post, forgot it was the 1st Apr.

Received my Transformers Animated Unicron accessories pack today. Very happy with the lot. The stickers were a bit of a pain putting on, but well worth it.

Wow SentinelPrime, your on a roll lately!!:D
Abominus did you get it from BBTS? Cant wait for mine to get here hehehe.

OKis was a bit depressing the weather today, so to have a little cheer me up, went out shopping
http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb313/liegeprime/Aprilpurchase.jpg

TFS
TFA Jetfire/Jetstorm
Big W has the twins on sale less than $30 so I finally gave in and bought them
TFU Smokescreen from Kmart ( they've also restocked lik local Big W)

Older stuff i didnt post pic of, just included them now
Micromasters
MTMTE Vol1

NOn-TF
MvA - B.O.B. - luv it! :D
First ever, ever, ever - SW droid FX-6.... only because he'll be of use in the Med repair bay by ratchet et al.;)

Cheers!

Abominus
1st April 2009, 07:50 PM
Yea i did get it from BBTS, in regards too is it worth the money. Not sure how to anwser that, I personally love the TFA line and am one of those people that simply need to have everything, but in all respects I think the figures look just as great without them. Although having Ratchet now with the right kind of Weapons/Medical aid's does look really awsome.

Animated Shockwave (cartoon coloured version not G1 colour)

Did you acquire locally or import?

Linthart
3rd April 2009, 07:47 AM
Did you acquire locally or import?

I was about to ask that question myself but i remembered that a guy from hasbro i met at the toyfair said that they were no longer bringing in animated voyagers because they are shelf warmers.

Deluxe is a safe bet for them though

So we've missed Skywarp, shockwave, wreck gar and atomic lugnut.

However, we are expected to receive g1 shockwave and sunstorm as an exclusive.

Hopefully we (demonac, griffin and myself) stated our case adequately that failure to sell voyagers locally is detrimental to local spending and boosting retail sales as we are forced to send our money elsewhere

I recall someone sighting Wreck-Gar, and Sunstorm has definitely been sighed in NSW.

G1 shockwave and sunstorm we spotted at Hobbyco which is an independent store i believe. they ony had 4-5 sets? (clarification needed :))

I've found Wreck-gar in melbourne at a comic shop which was way overpriced as it was imported but also likely from the secondary market

Linthart
3rd April 2009, 09:29 AM

Nope. 5 points of articulation. arms and legs up and down, heads left and right.

They're pretty solid

3rd April 2009, 09:31 AM
Mighty Muggs do NOTHING. They just stand there and look stupid. My wife thinks it looks cute. :/ The head and shoulders move... that's IT. It is such a massive waste of twenty five dollars... especially considering that it's the _same_ basic Mighty Muggs mould that they use for every other freakin' Transformers, Star Wars, Indiana Jones etc. Mighty Mugg. And it's hollow on the inside too, much like a rotocast - a technique used by a lot of toy manufacturers to save money because they use less material. Yet it costs $25?!? (o_O)

I'm _not_ fond on anything that's not playable... not even statues or busts. Little PVC figurines I don't mind so much. At least Q-Robo, Robot Heroes, SCFs, HoCs etc. have unique individual moulds. At this size the super-deformity also makes it ridiculously top-heavy too.

I just don't see the appeal in these things at all. I just bought one out of frustration after a long and unsuccessful hunt for TF toys - and just to have _one_ Mighty Mugg as an example in my collection. I have no desire to waste another dollar on any more of these things.

Highly unrecommended.

Yeah, Minotaur would have acquired stock from overseas, so I wouldn't take it as any indication of Wreck-Gar being available locally.

Wouldn't HobbyCo be considered likewise?

You're not the only one. I thought the head came off and you could pour tea inside (or at least store stuff in there) :o

GoktimusPrime

The head is too round to do that - it would roll and spill your drink. They're called Mighty Muggs as a descriptor for the people who buy them. :(

Thanatos
3rd April 2009, 01:20 PM
They're comical, I think that's their point. Gok's wife has a point, they're "cute". You could put one on a desk at work as a "nick-nack" or something quirky but not for the hardcore transformer fan.

$25 is too much for a desktop nick-nack IMO. (-_-) It's also quite big and would take up a lot of space on your desk too ... I don't have much spare space on my desk at work. The only deco I have is a Transformers Animated rubber and a KT Bumblebee figurine (http://omochayaya.kilo.jp/amc/cg/amc009622.jpg) both at the base of my monitor, which is adorned with TF stickers. I just don't feel like I got $25 worth of value from this thing...

3rd April 2009, 10:57 PM
OKies thanks for the info, so I wont be umming and aahing at them Mighty Muggs anymore, its just like them Trolls Dolls then, with "some" articulation. But at least with Trolls though you get to brush their hair and make a wish heheheheh, and they come in various costumes.... and makes a good gift for whatever your occupation is.

Not to mention that their hair is also highly flammable. :D

Mighty Muggs collectors like the fact that the smooth surface lets them customise them to make any character they want (e.g.: Time Warrior). Apparently Hasbro even sells blank Mighty Muggs. Somes similar to other such toys like Stikfas and Microman - but these toys are cheaper, not rotocast and highly articulated.

Wow... he's shelf-warming all over the place here. :p But I know what you mean... took me forever to find Universe Cyclonus and now I'm seeing him in a couple of places.

Atm I cannot find hide nor hair of Universe Inferno or Animated Wreck Gar! Swindle also eludes me - only saw him once at Myer who were selling Animated Deluxes at a ridiculous $10 hike, so I passed that. Haven't seen him since. :( But I just know that after I get them (possibly will have to import them) then I'll be seeing them everywhere.

This guy. Nice update!

Henkei Dinobot

MP Grimlock (AWESOME!)

Minibots Spy team and attack team. Really like Adams (Cosmos) and Brawn. Cosmos was my first TF, so its cool to see him getting some love. Brawn has much better colours than the universe one. More a khaki than bright green.

Encore Cassettes. Now I have Eject and Rewind!

Got me some opening to do! And no time to do it in...:(

7th April 2009, 02:29 PM
The new Hot Shot sure is pretty. Have been very keen to get my hands on it since it was revealed. Looks like its going to bring the goods. From what I can gather only the Henkei version has the twin guns. Haven't spotted a Universe version pic with any guns.

I'm jealous of all the MP Grimlock owners too. But it's still too expensive for me to make the import.

Strangely enough both have their foreground 'character' card moved up but both figures are clearly factory sealed
a freak batch?

a freak batch?

I have to suspect that something went wrong with their packaging machine during a batch of toys and this is the result. They toys inside are just fine however but what caught my attention was that both had the same issue and were factory sealed.

Okay guys, watch me predict the future - the time is now 14:20EST -- I'm going to head into Castle Hill after work, so I'll be there around 15:30-16:00 ... I'm gonna hit Target and sweep Castle Towers and I bet you anything that there will be no Animated Blurrs or any other new toy that I need/want there!!

If I'm wrong and you see me posting a new acquisition tonight, I will eat my hat. (and post a pic of that too). I'm _that_ confident that all the new stock will be gone by time I get there.

I'm only talking about toys btw - I'm gonna check jayjays for any new TF clothes, so that doesn't count. Only toys.

Thanks mate, it is a great feeling when you complete a collection you set out to finalise. It's kinda like full circle as the TFC collection and Hasbro reissue got me back into Transformers again. I started with a few but never thought I'd be able to get the set after being so far behind and even contemplated giving up. So glad I persisted :D:D:D

Found a surprise in my post box that almost brought a tear to my eye (fortunately I was in a public place, so restrained myself).
I was only at the post office to pay for a bill, and just checked my mail box while I was there, because I'm not expecting anything at the moment. But there was a collection notice card in there for a registered item, and I had no idea what it could be.
I went to the counter and was handed a small padded envelope, with Kyle's return address on it, which had me really puzzled.
Opening it up, I found a copy of the first Volume AHM book, autographed by the Perth comic duo at the recent signing session over there, and a note saying that it was from 'fellow fans' for 'everything you've done for us Ozformers fans over the years'.
Thanks heaps to those responsible. You really shouldn't have, as I don't do this to get anything in return. But you guys are great. I really appreciate the gift. (hugs to all) :)

Lucky I wasn't planning to get this before BotCon (IDW sell their comics and TPBs there), so that I didn't end up spoiling the gesture by already buying this.

That said, I'm not planning to buy a Grand Maximus any time soon either... :p

2/ When you hit "Post Reply" (not Quick Reply) scroll down to "Additional Options." You'll see a section called "Attach Files." Click on the "Manage Attachments" button and a small window will pop up. In that window you can click the "Browse" button and find the file on your computer to upload then click "Upload." Alternatively you can also upload from a URL by copy and pasting the URL into the "Upload File From a URL" bar and then clicking the "Upload" button.

Finally, after 2 straight months without a TF purchase, finally completed my G1 collection with these:

http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q305/Redboost77/Acquisitions/chopshop1.jpg

I actually had this toy already but it was lacking stickers and had major paint chipping. Finally found this lot of 2, one without paint chipping and ALL stickers and one in below par condition. Will probably be offloading the second one to either my nephew or will sell it.

I'm gonna need to import Wreck Gar and Shockwave/Longarm... can't find either of them anywhere in stores. (-_-) Gonna wait a while though as I just put an order for Henkei Inferno through after a looong time of unsuccessfully hunting for him. :( Hasbro Australia's TF distribution (or lack of) is reeeaaally annoying me. :(

Anyway, got these today:

I'd say patience usually but I reckon you did the right thing. There's normal a delay in our distribution compared to the US but things do eventually get here. The exception of course is at the tail end of a line which in this case is Classics 2.0 where we're far more likely to miss stuff. I'm pretty worried about missing out on it myself. But what I think might happen down the line is what's happening to the Thundercracker/Ratchet movie voyagers at Myer. There's a bunch of Classics 2.0 Voyagers sitting around somewhere that Hasbro will eventually need to flog off. But of course that might not be for over a year.

@Goki - Inferno's showed up over here in Toyworld Fremantle -if you still want one of the Universe versions one of us Perth crew could probably sort you out.:)

jaydisc
15th April 2009, 05:43 AM
After spending a couple of weeks in the USA, I'd be very concerned if you need any of the remaining Voyagers in the Universe line, much more so than those in the Animated line. I've only found 1 x Inferno and 2 x Overloads in all my hunting. So, if they're that hard to find here, I think it will be even harder over there.

On the hooks, I menat for the boxes of the toys, the cardboard can get easily damaged and just wanted to reinforce the packaging a bit.

Yeah, one of my Year 9 boys has that exact pencil case and he said that he got it from the Reject Shop. :) I'm currently satisfied using my Animated Pencil Case, although it's already showing signs of damage :( - besides, it would be confusing if two people in the same class had the same TF pencil case -- unlike the Animated Pencil Case it doesn't let you 'customise' it with a name. But the rear side is really neat too as it's clear blue and iirc it has some TF logo moulded in. That Autobot symbol is mildly magnetic - it kinda sticks to the image of Bumblebee. I should probably get myself one for use outside school. I have no idea what - I already have two other movie pencil tins in my TF room - ah, like I even need an excuse! :D

Got these two pieces at the Perth Nexus toy fair yesterday sat morning.

I was really hoping to get hold of this bumblebee mold at the fair & even though I couldn't find my preferred Henkei version, the black/yellow colour scheme is really growing on me. I'll have to rate this version ahead of the original yellow/white one and just behind the Henkei's more classic look.


ANd as for the KO Binaltech hound, it is actually rather OK despite it being a KO. :o

The finishing on this piece isn't as fine as you would expect on the original... e.g. ball joints a little rough & vehicle mode panels not fitting perfectly.

But at $15, I find it difficult to complain. He looks quite good standing next to MP Prime. Saves me the trouble of having to hunt him down on ebay and shipping him in.

All in all, a $35 good haul from the fair.. but i'm beginning to regret not picking up the loose animated prime and animated grimlock from Kyle! (having some major space issues in the house at the mo).



PS - ANyone knows where I can get autobot stickers for my figures? Bumlebee and hound do not have autobot logos.

I checked two other stores (Fountain Gate, Dandenong) hoping to find more for the others asking me but nothing there. Worth checking your local Target though!

omg. My local target has 0 voyagers. :(
would love an overload and inferno! :D

Bloody typical. The week my stuff arrives, it appears locally on Aussie shelves cheaper than I paid. F@#k you Hasbro Aus.!! :mad:

Picked myself up Transformers Risk to go with TF Monopoly. Haven't played it yet but it appears to have more rules than the original.

Also got some G1 Optimus floor mats for my car
