Verrrrrrry happy with my Transformers acquistions over the last two days. :D

First of all, thanks to canofwhoopass_87 I now have a G1 Gnaw! This guy is incredibly awesome and I'm very excited to have one of my own, hehe.

Another big thanks goes out to Griffin for selling me a set of the legends class ROTF constructicons! These toys are a must have for the movie toy collectors, they're just too much fun (full marks on the packaging too, the Japanese style makes preserving the cardbacks a hell of a lot easier than Hasbro's efforts)!

Thanks leige! I'm sure you'll find one at the right price one day and then you too can become a member of the sharkticon massive. :D

I bought my first movie Megatron today in the form of Legends Class Megs (had Bonecrusher & Brawl before but had to add them in the pic for good measure :p). Highly average bot mode but the tank mode is most exquisite.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v106/AE_King/LegendsMovieBonecrusher-Megs-Brawl.jpg

Also happened across the Ice Cream Twins & Jolt! Not really a fan of Jolt, he's just so bland in both alt and bot mode mainly due to his boring colours. If he was, say, bright purple with gold accents he would look awesome. :D

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v106/AE_King/MovieJolt.jpg

The twins though? What can I say, these along with Legends Devs are some of the coolest/funnest toys I've ever laid my grubby mits on. Surprisingly complex transformations, great colours, unique alt mode, great paint apps and detailed bot modes...All that and TWO transformers for the price of one. Buy it, buy it, buy it!

FAB Long Haul, a special fig being the first my partner has bought for me! She even picked out the one with the best apps! :D

He is really an awesome figure and my first FAB! If any other FABs are up to his quality I wouldn't mind getting them!

g1 hasbro takara is what i am collecting

The reason that what you're saying is confusing us is that Action Masters Soundwave is also G1 Hasbro Takara. In fact it's G1 squared, because it's one of only a handful of G1 era character toys that was a second incarnation of another G1 toy.

I like the FAB's but be aware that most of them are glorified large Legend figures. There's a few I can recommend:

Movie 1
- Brawl
- Frenzy
- Ironhide
- Blackout (or RotF Grindor)

RotF
- Optimus Prime (different mold to movie 1 version)
- Skids
- Mudflap

Avoid: Jetfire, Starscream, movie 1 Megatron, Sideways.

Because three of us ordered a case, which comes with three spares (and it's the same three spares in every case). So I sold two of the spares to kup at a bargain price. The other will live in my car :)

Devastator's very poor depiction in the movie lowered my enthusiasm for this toy. I wouldn't mind getting a full set but I won't go the extra mile for one. I picked up this two as a chance buy from Dirge when I went to pick up my Henkei Dinobot that I had loaned him - I will probably get the others in the same way but since I no longer care for this take on Devastator as a character, it doesn't matter to me if it takes a long time or if it doesn't happen.

And thanks dirge and kup for your replies. I wasn't really impressed on them as well after I played with them, they are good as individual figure but not as devastator - and I think the head hangs a tad too low.

4th August 2009, 09:36 PM
Thought you might be interested. I just opened bruticus an in my opinion he is exactly as I expected, typical encore quality, it is no worse than eject/rewind or some if the minibots but not as crisp as omega supreme.

The mold seem to be ok but not great, onslaught is the worst, vortex's legs and brawls guns are rough on mine and like most encore stuff it would be 100% better it it was assembled with more care.

I think it is a little better than the club seacons, if you like encore you should like it.

It isn't the best encore but it was worth releasing, care and effort has been put into the release and it is still a quality toy. I think if it has metal parts there would have been less complaints but whatever.

Encore jazz had it but was awful I'm my opinion, this still feels and looks like the toy it is ment to be.

Encore Cassettes Vol. 1 & 2! Ratbat is the real standout for me as I never played with one as a kid and his transformation is great - very intricate for such a small-fry! Dunno about the gold weapons though, while a nice change they do look a bit tacky. :p

Congrats on the pickup. I had gold weapon Ratbat as a kid, until someone stole it :( - the one I had now has silver weapons which feel "wrong" to me, so I'm keen for this reissue myself (it's in the mail).

Thanks chaps, I'm well chuffed with them. Sorry to hear about your Ratbat, Dirge. I think you'll be more than pleased with this new one though! The chrome is so...shiiiiny *goes into shiny thing trance* I wonder how many kids snapped his ears off by pulling his wings outwards before lifting them up. :p

No "affiance" taken. :D It's very simple - because for much less than it would cost to buy a complete G1 junker or toy with sticker wear and scratches, you get the same toys and they're minty fresh.

(Though sometimes suffering from mould degradation.)

(Curious to know others personal opinions)Cassettes like Ratbat are hard to find without broken ears, plus the price of one or two full accessories original tapes is about the same as an reissue pack.

Some people want toys in better condition (or cheaper), some feel the nostalgia's not the same if it's a reissue.

No offense taken. Sky Shadow nailed the reason for me. I'm actually curious of the reverse. Why would you prefer a 20 year old version?

Some people like to collect only originals, for purity purposes, like I don't collect fan-made or replica stuff. Saying you have a Gen1 collection that are actually from the 80s has more value (not talking financial value) than a collection filled with reissues. Plus there are people who do collect them for financial/investment purposes.

I have a lot of reissues because I prefer a nicer looking collection when on display and to play with, and they are a lot cheaper option to achieve that.

Picked up All Hail Megatron #13 and the IDW Energon Vol 1 TPB.

The Energon trade continues IDW's fine tradition of poor quality reprinting of Dreamwave comics. The only reason I'm half tempted to recommend the book is that half the story is set in Western Australia.

Really it's probably cheaper to buy the individual issues anyway which did have issues with murky colouring but at least all the speech balloons were in sharp focus.

Picked up the ROTF Sideswipe & Megatron Legends today... I have very mixed feelings!

Sideswipe is excellent tbh, but Megatron is a huge FAIL! Even at $7 he is a massive rip-off and I would NOT recommend him! For starters - the plastic his legs are made from is so brittle it actually broke as part of his first ever transformation! Yes, that's right... AS PART OF HIS FRIGGIN TRANSFORMATION!!! :mad::mad:

I mean, surely the designers/manufacturers would release that his legs HAVE to be moved in order to transform him... so why make it from stuff that can't take it?! Not to mention the stress marks... Grrr! :mad:

And of top of that, he doesn't even stand properly anyway cos he's poorly balanced! Don't buy this figure - it's CRAP! :mad:

That does it... with this and everything else... I'm over ROTF now!

For some reason they don't make them with the Decepticon faction symbol. Pity because I was going to rebadge my car with the available Decepticon badges but seeing as that wouldn't match the valve covers I won't be. I could rebadge it as an Autobot but my car looks more a Decepticon than Autobot

Sorry to hear about your experience with Legends Megatron. :( I just transformed mine once and then left him in his alt mode. I think his tank mode is still worth it as it's the most screen accurate and has the nice premium paint but otherwise it's not the best. His arms remind me of those creatures from Dead Space. :p

They are actually. Don't be fooled by Skids bigger arm being a gun in package, you can flip it over for his normal hand. Their alt modes are solid with the typical FAB trademark of simple legends like conversion. They make look like the same mold but they aren't although they are engineered similarly.

MP Starscream in G1 colors has two versions - The japanese (takara) one doesnt have the "battle damage" paint scheme which added to it. You can tell by the packaging coz it has that F15 silhouette on the lower front left of the packaging with of course japanese scripts - they call MP starscream USA edition. Hasbro's version doesnt have the F15 silhouette sticker in front at all and yeah has that dirty "battle damage" paint scheme.

18th August 2009, 11:07 PM
I'm pretty sure the Takara one has battle damage as well. I think the only difference is an insignia on the nosecone.

I'm pretty sure the Takara one has battle damage as well. I think the only difference is an insignia on the nosecone.

Takara did away with the weathering paint scheme jay. A lot of people had fanboy whinges about it on the boards when the then US Walmart exclusive G1 colored MP version came out. A lot were annoyed with the darkened wing joints and wotnot. So takara instead had theirs in silvery light grey and not so much that Screamer looks like hes a burnt toast. I have the Takara version. Its one of the factors I considered when I was buying him coz I had a look at a loose Hasbro version one, didnt really like the "battle damage" Hasbro had going - much like the MP prime they issued with the same random dark paints here and there, totally unnecessary IMO.
