Bought two TF t-shirts from Jay Jays today.

Unfortunately I haven't taken any pictures yet, I will give a textual description below:

[1] Red t-shirt, has the words "Cybertron University est. 1984" on the front. Has a picture of Optimus Prime in robot mode. Back is blank.

To see a picture of it, visit:
http://www.jayjays.com.au/jayjays.html

Then on the left, under the heading "Guys", click on "Tops". It should be the top left most t-shirt.

I don't have the exact URL as the whole site seems to be done in Flash (hence no subpage URLs).

[2] Black t-shirt, has the words "Heavy Metal" on the front. Has a picture of Optimus Prime and Megatron on the front. Back is blank.

Can't seem to find a picture of this one online..

Never dreamt that I'll be able to hold this in my hands one day! What a nice surprise from Mr. Postman again this morning: MP-04 and Gears, Swerve and Cosmos thanks to Tiby. :D Sure brought a smile to my dull Monday! I wanted so much to open it there and then, but had to go off to work. :( So no guesses to the first thing I'll do once I get home after work today. :p

3rd March 2008, 08:45 PM
Count me in there too STL.

Just out of curiosity where did those from and how much did it cost (approx)?

STL
3rd March 2008, 09:39 PM
I got them from the US on eBay. The bunch cost me approximately $16 each. I'm not sure there's something about vintage toys. The Hot Rod for example has blackened steel toes while the Jazz has really old stickers compared to the re-issues but there's something about them that makes them feel like a piece of history. Don't get me wrong, I love re-issues b/c they're so much newer. But there's something about holding a 20+ yr old toy that's still in good nick.

I still haven't decided if I'll see the spares. That was my original intent when I bought the lot b/c I needed the rarer cassettes, Trailbreaker and Chromedome. None of those usually come cheap. The cassettes going for up to $40USD each ($25-30 if I'm lucky), Trailbreaker is $60-80 USD and Chromedome is $100 USD shipped normally. I figured it'd be a bargain since it was sold as whole lot. Then I'd be able to recoup my cost by selling what I didn't need but now I'm not so sure anymore.

Meh. The vehicle mode is love, but the "robot" modes really suffer for that. I'll display it in vehicle mode, but once I've reviewed it I doubt I'll even go for the robot modes again.

I got Stockade and MW Megatron yesterday, both from BBTS.

Received the following today:

- Encore Sky Lynx, Scene Battles 03 Desert Attack and 04 Capture of Bumblebee from HLJ
- G1 Minibot Swerve from STL

Really amazed at how big Sky Lynx's box is. Can't imagine how big Omega Supreme's box will be when it is released and arrive in my hands

Dude, your acquisition streak is ridiculous. I'm thoroughly impressed.

STL
4th March 2008, 10:10 PM
Gee STL, did you buy all that just to get about six toys?

It ended up costing me about the same as if I'd gone to get those 6 separately except now I have a whole of G1 goodness. :D My aim after this is doubling up on my G1 TFs.

I am a bit upset about having to part with Sunstreaker, Sideswipe and Red Alert but they've gone to a Sunstreaker tragic so at least they're in good hands. When I do get around to getting doubles of G1, I fear I may regret this! lol

Dude, your acquisition streak is ridiculous. I'm thoroughly impressed.

My girlfriend is thoroughly not! Nor is anyone else actually. Oh and I shouldn't forget about my wallet.

Unfortunately I haven't taken any pictures yet, I will give a textual description below:

[2] Black t-shirt, has the words "Heavy Metal" on the front. Has a picture of Optimus Prime and Megatron on the front. Back is blank.

Can't seem to find a picture of this one online..

EEEk! I picked up those exact same t-shirts the other day..... We had better contact each other before any possible meeting, or else it might be highly embarrasing!

I got in the mail:
http://i91.photobucket.com/albums/k313/Wootnchoo/meeeee.jpg

He's cool! So hot n sexy! Question though, I see that Taktoms site and SL's instructions state the blue walking bit to be a puma. I was under the impression that it was a lynx (Sky Lynx, not Sky "Links"). Whassup with that?

Had a race between him and Star Convoy. In both Vehicle and robot mode Star Convoy left Sky Lynx eating his dust.

GoktimusPrime
5th March 2008, 07:59 AM
Yeah, according to TakaraTOMY he's a puma - the packaging also states it too. What's weird is how the other mode is just described as a "dinobird" which is kinda lame... I would've preferred something more specific like an Archaeopteryx.

GoktimusPrime
5th March 2008, 08:38 PM
Bird _are_ dinosaurs, strictly speaking, anyway d:

Yeah, but "dinobird" as an alt mode description is lame IMO because it's just so... non-descriptive. Especially when they're willing to be quite specific in describing his terrestrial robot mode as a "puma" but aren't willing to do the same for his aerial robot half.

Also somewhat interesting is that reissue Sky Lynx's function is "transport" whereas of course his original G1 function was "Lieutenant Commander" - and it's not as if it's a discrepancy between the Takara and Hasbro G1 functions (e.g.: like with Jazz, he was "Lieutenant Commander" in Japan but "Special Operations Saboteur" in Hasbro markets) because Sky Lynx has never been released as a toy in Japan before!

Mind you, "transport" would be a more suitable function considering his role as "Air Sky Lynx" in the G1 cartoon and comics. ;)

Soundwave statue. It's beautifully crafted with the energon crystals in the background. You'll even notice a the slight opening of Soundwave's chest to give the feel he's in motion. I didn't think I could get him at a good price but thank Casefresh for the good price (but terrible service)

:)My Darkwing is now complete:D, the 2 guns showed up today in the post:).
Here is the breakdown when you end up buying the items seperate for a single figure, Main Bot $37.00 U.S, Powermaster $35.00 U.S and the 2 guns $13.50 each U.S for a grand total of $99.00 U.S which surprisingly is about what they are going for complete. I normally find if you buy an item bit by bit you end up forking out more money:eek:.

Burn
6th March 2008, 12:06 PM
Yeah but it's also fun (and a little frustrating at times) to search for the little pieces and slowly bring old G1 figures back to life.

But i'm a lazy sod so I just went out and got a complete G1 Quake who arrived yesterday, and Encore Sky Lynx turned up the day before.

Big, big thanks to Stencilator for all these who must be a mind reader.:confused:

After reading the IDW books I got me a hankerin' to acquire Springer who I've been searching for to no avail and then out of the blue he arrives at no charge with the Gnaw that I did purchase from Stencilator. As well as the Kup at no extra cost as well.

Thank you Al. It is so much appreciated that I can't begin to thank you enough. The leader of the Wreckers was fast becoming my True Grail and I got him free when it was totally unexpected. He has been cleaning up beautifully as well and has got a new Autobot sticker and is now awaiting a fresh set from Reprolabels.:):):)

Whoa, that's awfully strongwilled of you. I can't last a week without my fingers getting eBay happy.

Oooh so tempted on the Barricade one, Iceburn. (but pics would've been better!) I have the Optimus and BB ones. Wish they'd do Ironhide!

Anyways, from Stencilator ol' buddy today:
http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/4838/dscf3520nl1.jpg (http://img530.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dscf3520nl1.jpg)

- TFM custom Sideswipe: he is awesome. He fits in perfectly with the original 5 Autobots plus Longarm and Landmine. Absolute gem. My 2nd custom and I hope to get more! (if I can afford it!) Thanks stencilator!
- X-Wing Starfighter: awesome alt mode and pretty decent robot mode. Why don't they use this mold more often in SWTF line? It's robot mode is far superior to those Jedifighers that Darth, Obiwan and co keeping getting.

got a TF shirt from jayjays - it's the Autobot insignia a sky blue shirt.

not really that much customising.. more like a head swap.... the grimlock head was an absolute b*tch tho... was on a swivel tack rather than a ball joint... .. so putting the megatron head was next to impossible

http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/5692/dscf3562vm6.jpg (http://img410.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dscf3562vm6.jpg)

Diamond Select Omega Supreme
Takara USA Starscream
Alternators Rodimus (thanks Griffin!)

Of the lot Omega Supreme brings the greatest joy to me. The statue is somewhat limited in which angles u can look at it from and so is very awkward on camera. I've tried to grab some of the best shots of him.

http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/3849/dscf3563fp7.jpg (http://img410.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dscf3563fp7.jpg)

http://img149.imageshack.us/img149/2049/dscf3564ni2.jpg (http://img149.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dscf3564ni2.jpg)

He is pretty sweet. I'm going to call him an Action Master. He has a tech spec on his beautiful box too. ;)

Considering the possibility of seeing a new G1 Omega Supreme representation any time soon, that was one of the things that really prompted me to buy him. I grabbed him from my local comic shop and got a really decent price for it ($265). However, since I placed my order the exchange rate has gone up and I could've probably gotten it for a bit less right now. Doesn't bother me though, it's Omega!

Paulbot
12th March 2008, 04:22 PM
Should I point out that there is an Action Master Omega Supreme?

The Animated Omega Supreme should be interesting when (if?) that comes along, although it probably wont be G1 enough to satisfy everyone. :)

That does look cool though as statues go.

My phone is refusing to talk to my laptop so I can't upload the pics.

I do like the new head sculpt compared to the original and the fact that the G1 transformation sound + blue eyes (though because of the way they packed it I can't confirm) is there instead of the crappy laser sound of the original. Initial impressions of the energon blade is that the ebay knock-offs look nicer.

Not at all. He set me back AU$15. It's got a yellowed Bubble and I think it chipped in postage, but it's still a steal to me.

Just bought me a Revy Prime & Megs 2-pack from Ebay.

Man, I feel dirty with myself...

These guys arrived today from California via Ebay & only one word is needed to sum 'em up = LURVE!

The only thing that bugs me a little is how stiff their interchangeable hands can be. My mate over in the US broke off his Meg's arm cannon while trying to swap his hands. I guess I've gotta be pretty careful.

Yesterday's acquisitions:

http://www.paxeiro.com/newstuff/190308.jpg

One of the ladies at work bought me the pen. It's so much fun, Bumblebee spins around as you write. So professional, too d:

Anime Streak, with the black hood, is one of the most underwhelming e-Hobby variants, since it's a fairly minor repaint. But it's something I've wanted for a while. The last great "get it while the dollar is high" for me.

So that'll pretty much concludes my eBay purchasing for quite a while :)

Yesterday I was in my local Borders with a 15% off voucher so I decided to pick up Infiltration. If I didn't have that voucher, I wouldn't have picked it up at all. In all honesty, I just can't get into comics. They don't excite me even one iota. Even though I own 3 IDW Graphic Novels now:

http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn204/Pulse_Warrior/Acquisitions/GraphicNovels.jpg

The only reason I picked 'em up is because they're G1-esque TF.

In the mid 90's, I used to collect Phantoms for a little while but then I decided to sell 'em to a local comic store.

At the moment, all these 3 IDW titles are doing is collecting dust.

Just another pointless acquisition on my behalf. :rolleyes:

I got a spare Bumbelebee, Brawl and Bonecrusher (the three B's) for spare parts thanks to Paulbot and STL:

http://lindalane.com/temporary/tf/DSC03337.jpg

STL also grabbed me the Ironhide/Desert Blackout 2-pack (not pictured). He also made the very bold statement that Ironhide was the best Legends class figure (ever or just the movie line?) I disagreed thinking that little Bonecrusher rocked, but upon closer comparison of the two, I must agree. Ironhide rocks.

Also, in the photo is Autobreadticon's gracious gift of an Easter egg carrying Optimus Prime ;) Thanks dude! Very sweet of you. You're welcome any time.

Lastly, is a Classics Grimlock who I already had, but who was given some incredible impromptu dental surgery by the amazingly talented Lcz128. LCZ showed up today to our meet and said he brought his paints and asked if there was any detailing any of us wanted done. Being a bit jealous of Iceburn's recently acquired Takara Grimlock's teeth, I asked if that could be done. LCZ sat in the lawn chair with a paint brush and did a pristine job impressing us all thoroughly. Thank you again!

Ah, so envious. How much difference a little paint does.

I reckon it's the best movie legends figure. Cybertron had a few very decent ones. I'm not sure how he compares to them. On further inspection, it's a pretty tough choice between the two. Bonecrusher has a far more accurate alt mode. Ironhide though has a superior robot mode with the arms actually having articulation at the elbows. The other quibble i have w/ bonecrusher is the lack of "split" claws on his back which I think are an important aspect of the original. That combined w/ my natural liking for Ironhide from fiction pulls him ahead ever so slightly.

There is none.

Hasbro has acknowledged the following existing store exclusives as part of the Premium Line:

Robo-Vision Optimus Prime = Premium Voyager Optimus Prime
Limited Edition Metallic Finish Megatron = Premium Voyager Megatron
Limited Edition Metallic Finish Ratchet = Premium Voyager Ratchet
Deep Space Start Scream = Premium Voyager Starscream

And thus, you will not see any of these figures specifically repackaged under the Premium moniker.

First Encounter Screen Battles Pack today!

I'm really happy with this cause I'm planning to give this barricade a premium paintjob and offer him to the lovely people here- and a bonus(that I'd heard about but wasn't sure myself)- which is that the chest-cavity-filling-frenzy figure is actually removable once you undo the torso (simple screwdriver action). There's a piece of plastic that Frenzy is folded over that prevents movement of him otherwise. Once removed, he pops out like usual!

Also, he was cast in a nice shiney (sparkly?) plastic. Cool stuff! :)

... which come to think of it- I haven't actually removed the sam, mikaela and frenzy from the packaging yet... which was the point I bought the pack for... haha! Silly me!

Finally after what felt like a horribly long time, I went to check out my local Big W today and found one lone Nightwatch Prime amongst Shelfwarmers Megatron. And at $76.73, I had to grab him, repaint or what, he's Prime! :p And here he is with Jungle Bonecrusher and Overcast which I bought couple of weeks ago.

And a possible good news is that my Boyfriend's aunty said she might have some of her son's old TFs from the 1980s still boxed! And she said I can have'em if she finds them! I'm keeping my fingers crossed. :)

I agree. Sky Lynx would suffer immensely w/out the gold stickers. I removed my Encore from it's packaging just to get the bio card and boy did the lack of stickers look bad.

When I was a kid, my mum use to do them for me. Maybe u should ask? The gold windows really are important to enjoy the toy

I agree. One of my stickers is slightly misaligned (I was practically asleep when I put them on) but I think Sky-Lynx looks heaps better with his stickers.

On BTW on the topic of acquisitions I received Beast Wars season 2 in the mail today.

Yer but I'm afraid he will stuff up, if you can label mine that would be great!

Benben You will find alot of the stickers line up with markings on the toy. Use them as a guide and your stickers should go on fine:)
