Big thanks to Jaydisc for the lovely movie 1 repaints that will be unleashed and join their movie/ROTF brothers on my display soon.

Also picked up an electronic scale from Kmart. Should help me work out postages without going all the way to the post office and make things much quicker.

ROTF Deluxe: Cannon Bumblebee. I have to say he is easily my favourite of the deluxe movie Bee's. His arms are a huge improvement and the movie accurate head is fantastic. If I had to fault him I'd say they should have used gunmetal grey instead of what looks like a greeny 'The Fallen' colour on the mechanical parts and the gimmick should have been dropped to allow the chest to segment for movie accuracy. Still, for me he's the movie Bee of choice to display in robot mode with the rest of the gang. :)

My haul from Big W:

http://itfdb.com/temporary/tf/DSC05293.jpg

ROTF Cast
Fallen
Mudflap
Ravage

At these prices, I figured I'd consider getting cast. Like Jetfire, I plan to have a first-hand play with all of these before opening my own and committing to keeping them. Surprisingly, I'm most intrigued about The Fallen. I think his colors look great and of course, he is the title character.

ROTF Gravity Bots

I only planned on getting BB, but my son loves it, and he's quickly shying away from BB and becoming a Prime man, so I got him a Prime, and who doesn't love shiny Corvettes? :D

And last but not least, while doing a friend a favor and laybying a Lego Death Star, I couldn't resist, and laybied one myself. Pardon the stock photo. I'll post an original in December! :D

Where did you find Sideways and Sideswipe?

I actually got them last week during K-mart's 20% off sales - I've noticed these 2 are the hardest to find (I haven't seen them at any of the current sales although there was a lone Sideways at K-mart Casula this morning). So I wasn't going to take a risk and wait for the sales so I grabbed them there and then.

2nd July 2009, 09:33 PM
Picked up Mudflap and Ultimate BB 2 at the sales today.

What a terrible time to go shopping... but I guess the price was right at $88 for BB and 18.95 for Mudflap.

Passed on Ravage as I don't collect many from the 'bad' side...but he is a pretty cool looking figure!

- Jetfire (swapped at Target Southland before they all disappeared!), Ransack, Legends Prime / Jetfire from Kmart
- All the others from Big W of which the credit card is crying now. :o

P.S: I love Leader Jetfire! Had to test a few because some of them the lights were not working and some you had to push down very hard on the chest. Mine was just perfect and the grumpy old bag is cute when he talks!

Actually I went in not really expecting them to price match but surprisingly they did after I showed them the catalogue. It was hassle free too, just grabbed it, showed the store manager who approved it, then told the checkout operator and walked out. I wish all price matches were this easy, I'd do them more often.

What's Autobot Rescue Squad "Jalgar"?

6th July 2009, 01:02 AM
I am very disappointed at K-mart (Sunnybank) the reason is that they weren't allowed to match big w's prices for voyagers because when they rang Big w they didn't have it in-stock so I ended up having to pass on demolisher,mixmaster,starscreen and ironhide! "GRRRR... I hate you kmart!"

Unfortunately, that's their price-matching policy - it has to be instock at the story they ring. It's just bad timing that most BigW stores are cleaned out of TFs at the moment, especially the Voyager size.
Go to Myer (like Carindale if you are still in Brisbane), as they have the early wave stuff like starscream and Ironhide, and their current sale has them at $40 each, which is only $3 more than BigW. Plus, it'll give you the chance to enter their competition to win the golden Optimus figure (just make sure you buy each toy separately to enter the competition more times - each entry form needs a different reciept number).

One of four Autobot toys released in Europe and here after Actionmasters (1992). They are recolours of four Japanese toys, and since they didn't have actual names on their packaging in 1992, fans just call them by their original Japanese names.

Nice but I managed to arrange something at k-mart australia fair, they can match it there and they can hold it till today so I'll be picking up mixmaster, demolisher, ironhide and startscreen!

Got G1 Bumblejumper/Bumper today in a nice custom card:

http://www.geocities.com/wow_frostwolf/loot/060709.jpg

Unfortunately the figure is far from being in good codition, all his metal parts are rusted and fixed in place (arm/wheel pin) and the painted bits such as the back bumper are worn badly. Looks like a kid had a lot of fun in the bathtub with this toy - I am in partial refund talks with the seller as he neglected to mention these 'small' details :mad:

He is going to be a bit of a restoration job but once I finalize issues with the seller, I will get cracking and I am confident of being able to bring him back to a respectable state.

BTW:

Doubledealer, that turbo master looks awesome!

TakaraTOMY's waves are sometimes different from Hasbro's.

There's no toy by that name in the catalogue. Interestingly enough Breakaway and Knockout are called "Autobot Breakaway" and "Autobot Knockout" in Japan.

Stratosphere isn't out here yet, but have been found in America, because it is in the next Voyager assortment (after Megatron/Mixmaster/Fallen/Ratchet). So should be out soon.
As for the Deluxe waves - all this early release stuff is from all over the place, so give it a few weeks for it to all settle down and we see stores restocking after the July sales with new stuff.

When I watched the movie, I was thinking the same thing - the score doesn't seem as good as the first. When I got the CD and listened to it, it was exactly that - not as good as the first. And some of it sounded like music from Gladiator and Star Wars Ep1 (and another movie I can't remember the name of).
And the Soundtrack only had one song on it that was worth listening to a second time (the first track), as opposed to 5 tracks on the first Soundtrack I thought were okay.

Did you read the manual?

The fun of Transformers toys is to treat them like puzzles that need to be solved. If you always follow instructions, you don't get the same sense of accomplishment of doing something on your own, without any help from anyone or anything. And like watching a movie, you only really get one chance at surprising yourself, so don't spoil it if you have the patience.

The procedure I use on any figure that isn't too fragile to risk it - is to start off with just the toy to see if I can get it into its other mode, and if not, then I look at the packaging photos first... and then as a last resort, I look at the instructions. And most times I check the instructions afterwards anyway to see if I missed any gimmicks or see if bits aren't where they should be.

In the case of Jetfire, I got most of it done, but still had to refer to the packaging pics for the placement of the arm joints (to make the jet nose sections line up), and I had to look on the instructions for the strap bit (which someone else here posted a clearer description than the instructions had).

I used the instructions (which weren't very helpful) and it took me 46 minutes to transform Jetfire (although I was interrupted a few times by Yukikaze :p)! Just so fiddly -- and figuring out what to do with those straps took a while too (because the instructions are totally useless in that department).

roller: z0MG! SALTMAN-Z!! You must bring that next time you attend a Syd meet!!!

Should be fairly close. The Japanese magazines used to promote Alternities as BTs in a new Movie Deluxe size/scale, and had shots of Alternities Convoy standing next to Movie Deluxe Bumblebee.
