True story: as a kid - just as a joke - I took some of my Matchbox cars and drew TF looking robots and stuck them to the underside of the cars so that they could "transform" to robot modes by flipping them up. My friends and I all laughed at the sheer lameness of the idea. :p

Off to a slow start this month... not many new releases appealing to me at the moment, only really adding older ones (but still not G1).

Courtesy of an eBay purchase arriving, added these guys today:

Energon Slugslinger (pretty cool transformation process!)
Energon Downshift (not bad looking robot mode - worthy homage to Wheeljack)
Energon Mirage (decent looking, but s***load of kibble!)
Armada Wheeljack (just plain lame...)

Na, it's just Hasbro Canada likes to be cheap... er cost-effective and use the same cardback for multiple figures. Looks like for ROTF they're doing it by wave, the first few waves of Universe just used the Sunstreaker card art on the front and a generic back similar to this.

I think you'll find that a lot of people on this board don't think Legends are "the most hated class in transformers"!

I don'tthink it's the most hated class. Moreso the most disliked class. I don't like class. They offer cheap, generally inferior versions of toys already available in the scout, deluxe etc. size class.

The only time they're of any interest is when they're unique - eg. EZ Devastator, Wheelie and the Mini-bots. But generally speaking they are a pretty pathetic size class.

WTF, I don't understand! Legends to my knowledge is the most hated class in transformers, why is every acquisitions post on legends???

I don't hate them, nor do I love them... I have a certain feeling of indifference to them! :p

They're definitely not my favorite class since they're pretty limited in all aspects, but read below to understand why I've been getting so many of them.

But generally speaking they are a pretty pathetic size class.

I pretty much agree on that one... the only reason why I've been buying them recently is because I felt that I had to add some ROTF toys to my collection.

Quite frankly, I'm not a big fan of how 'organic' the character designs of the ROTF TFs are, so I can't really be bothered shelling out the moolah for the deluxe or voyager size molds, so legends size will suffice. :D

blackoptimus: Legends were pretty ordinary when they first came out four years ago, but since then HasTak has gotten better at making Transformers in that size. If you compare TF1 movie Legends Prime with ROTF Legends Prime you can see a massive leap forward in design. The former is suck while the latter is pure awesomesauce.

I got Tales of the Fallen #2 and Best of UK Prey #1 & 2 today.

*teehee* a "retarded" costume. :p

Man, that sucks about the card. Happened to my Machine Wars Megatron - the box was opened for inspection by Customs who just carelessly shoved everything back in and bent the card in half before shoving it in to force it to fit. Makes the crease on your Windmill card look good!


what do you about that? if you buy a mint in box then they open it but you bought for the misb how do you stop them

I just whinge about it. There's not much else I can do. And oh, it wasn't in transit from a store - I'd posted it to myself after moving back to Australia after living in Japan. It wasn't sealed, I'd already opened it and played with it... I just wanted to keep the card. Not happy that it got bended in half though. :(

I also love that of all the Megatrons that I've had shipped into Australia Machine Wars Megatron was the only one to be inspected by Customs. :p

...then after all that trouble of obtaining all my Machine Wars Transformers from the US to Japan, then sending it from Japan to Australia, after moving back to Australia the "US KayBee exclusive" Machine Wars line COMES OUT here... and they're _EVERYWHERE_. And they shelf warmed for years! Har!!

Nice haul indeed Snipes and good going on the cheap Atomic Lugnut, Dirge. :)

I received my brand new copy of the Atari PS2 Transformers game in the mail yesterday - I've only had the chance to play it a small amount so far but what I played was excellent. Love jumping over ravines by careering towards them in car mode, transforming at the last minute which effectively hurtle/long jumps you over onto the other side. The action is very smooth and overall it's just a joy to play. Many thanks to Jaisun for bringing this game back to my attention, always wanted to play it!

Also managed to find a lone ROTF Ejector at Redbank this afternoon, he's great!

Here is my take from my Japan trip, except for G1 Skids, I bought him on ebay while I was over there. I picked up a Fallen because could never find him in Perth, then what happens.. I check out KMart when I get back and there he is on special for less than I paid for him in Japan.. I bought him again anyway :)

Ok, here's some recent hauls of mine.

http://i379.photobucket.com/albums/oo232/Bullfinger/CopyofP1010792.jpg

Left to Right:

Classics Ultra Magnus in anticipation of the upcoming armor release.

Movie legends Scorponok, seems much superior to the deluxe figure.

BM SpyStreak and BW Fuzor Bantor. Two great basic figures.

Classics Inferno, A wonderful figure, apart from tha fact that nearly every joint is loose to the point of floppiness.

http://i379.photobucket.com/albums/oo232/Bullfinger/Laserbeak.jpg

I also grabbed a movie Booster x10 in a sale. I've done this mod *Here* (http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-customs-kitbashes/138090-real-gear-booster-beak-neck-articulation.html) to give the figure neck articulation. I think he makes a decent classics Laserbeak, to my mind at least.

Yay, you got it! =oD

I'm so glad you like it, some people playing it for the first time in the day of the PS3 might turn their noses up at the PS2 graphics, but it's good to see you're enjoying it for the game it is, not it's age =o)

Even on sale, I feel ripped off having paid $40 for Darkwind the other day... he's by far the lamest TF toy I've ever purchased (and that includes the Topspin Jumpstarter I got as a kid!) :D

For sure! He's just so 'meh'... I returned the one I bought, I could think of much better uses for $40. I gladly kept Countdown though, he's cool =o)

I was actually surprised at how fantastic the graphics are for the Playstation 2. The huge amount of onscreen detail coupled with the vast environments makes for one very impressive looking game - and the high frame rate never drops a bit!

So glad I found the sniper rifle mini-con...The difficulty ramps up very quickly when playing in Veteran and having this chap at my side is making all the difference at the moment!

Are you using an Olympus? If so I use the guide function (on the settings wheel) and then choose the 'close up' option in the shooting guide when taking pictures of things like Transformers. This may help, it may not. :p
