Decades aren't the same as centuries. If the new decade didn't start until 2011 then 1980 wouldn't have been in the eighties and yet 1990 would.

(And sure, there was no zero AD, but there was also never a 1AD, a 2AD, a 3AD all the way up to 524AD, since Dionysius Exiguus didn't even make up the AD dating system until 525AD. A year he made up himself! Using something so arbitrary to decide that 1980 was in the seventies is an anomalous logistical leap.)

I was discussing this with Zed recently. It seems that the year when a decade or millenium starts is mostly decided by popular oppinion than actual year counting.

You gotta love that wacky Roman calendar of ours.

Man you can find some good bargains from Canada but that wait really is a killer isn't it. I similarly waited 3 months for my second Menasor to arrive from there - it was sent by "Xpresspost (LOL) International".

Awesome buys though so looks like the wait was worth it!

There's also an alternate robot mode transformation for Punch's legs that's reflected on his box art and the front of those instructions you have there. It helps explain why there's aspects of the toy can that he doesn't otherwise use (it's in the red box below):

LOL... It's all good. It's actually the 1989 Chinese Hasbro reissue so it's legit (note the sticker on the top right and assortment code on the bottom right). For some reason the pic of the fake has been removed. I linked it to TFW so they must have deleted / moved it.

I want Raindance and Grand Slam just because they did make a canonical appearance in G1 (comics; Underbase Saga)... a pretty stupid appearance too, they were just treated as data storage devices rather than sentient Autobots (they were referred to as Autobots but never portrayed as sentient beings... bah)... anyway, they're a low priority, but they are on my "want" list.

What I do like about the alternate transformation is that it means the two characters look a lot less like it's just the same guy who turned around and pulled back his toupée. They have different arm and leg configurations and are different heights - it makes the Decepticon army look not quite so stupid that they don't realise the two robots are the same bloke. :)

Picked up a Transformers Animated plate, cup, and drink bottle from Target the other day.

Also got a chrome Decepticon logo for my car which I just fitted. I placed it on the petrol cap cover in case it gets lifted and my car gets scratched. It would be easier to repaint rather than having to do a whole quarter panel. It's sad to have to do this, but I am aware of others on the board who have had theirs stolen.

I've read that the Korean versions of the Takara GF versions are exactly the same designwise (i.e the paint apps, chrome etc follow the same design pallete). For instance the korean wing saber has the gold n silver chrome and they even fixed the head defect that was present in the japanese ver.

Also I bought through RK's ebay store, might be only an ebay promotion? :confused:

Vector Prime: The Japanese version of Vector Prime features more show-like colours whereas the Hasbro version is white. I'm surprised you don't already have one considering your namesake! :)

Interesting to see that Transformers in Korea are now being distributed by a company called Mocom instead of Sonokong. Wha--?! Wing Sabre's Korean name is Ultra Jet?! (o_O) Perhaps that sounds better to Korean kids than "Wing Sabre"...

Vector Prime: The Japanese version of Vector Prime features more show-like colours whereas the Hasbro version is white. I'm surprised you don't already have one considering your namesake! :)

Interesting to see that Transformers in Korea are now being distributed by a company called Mocom instead of Sonokong. Wha--?! Wing Sabre's Korean name is Ultra Jet?! (o_O) Perhaps that sounds better to Korean kids than "Wing Sabre"...

Although I acknowledge the Takara version of Vector Prime to be more show accurate and overall a nicer paint job - The white Hasbro version ain't too bad either and I like it. I have both versions and was thinking of selling the Hasbro one after getting the Takara release but I am not sure now since I somewhat like it.

I agree. Both versions have their merits; just depends on your taste, and obviously if you're the kind of person who goes for show likeness, then the Takara version would be for you. I have the Hasbro version and I'm happy with it. :) I'm just paranoid about the white plastic yellowing! :/

I like the white colour on the hasbro one, it's very brilliant and contrasts well with the blue. however the deficiency in the paint apps, the bland cyber planet key and bendy-plastic wings lost it for me.

Yeah I don't have a Takara one, but I have the other three Hasbro releases (along with an extra Galaxy Force one) so that should make up for it. :D

Yeah I like the white on the Hasbro version - wasn't even aware that it wasn't show accurate since I've never seen any of the later cartoons (post G1) :o

My favourite version, strange as it may seem, is the gold/bronze coloured Galaxy Force version :eek:

After 3 1/2 years, and many hundreds of dollars, I finally completed the collection of BotCon 2006 toys, with the arrival today of Laserbeak.
(the red one at the front on the right)
http://www.otca.com.au/1001a.jpg

And on Monday (according to a message from DHL on my phone), the first of my big toy splurge this week, arrives - JP black Movie Optimus.

I was a bit naughty this week. After all my travelling in November, and the lead up to Christmas, I didn't have the time or money to keep up with TFs purchases. So I did up a list last weekend of what I wanted that is currently out that I wanted (was about 40 items), and comparing prices on several online stores and ebay, I ended up buying about 30 of them, costing me about a grand! Egads!!!

(list below is pasted from my files - prices are US$ - I left in the links in case others wanted to track down these items but couldn't find them for less)

My JP Black Movie Optimus arrived on Monday, which is pretty fast for something that didn't cost much to ship.
Has the same sound chip as the regular (Hasbro) Optimus, which I guess the Takara ones had as well.
I was surprised to find inside the BluRay case, a flyer promoting the new Animated series for Japan in 2010, and a couple of stickers.

Two things amusing...
1 - I now own a PS3 game for TF2 and the BluRay as well, but don't have anything to play either of them on. :p
2 - In a few days time I should have a third version of the Movie Optimus Mould (the 2-pack with Jetfire is in transit), but still haven't actually sat down and taken the time to transform the one I got 7 months ago. :eek:

Kyle
20th January 2010, 01:14 AM
Did you receive the bonus Legends Stealth Bumblebee with your JP Black Movie Prime? It is indeed different from the Hasbro version (which has been released and bought by fans at Hong Kong TRUs).

Both JP Black Movie Prime and the 2-pack one have much tighter joints than Hasbro Prime, except for the knee caps.

griffin
20th January 2010, 02:00 AM
Did you get the bonus Legends Stealth Bumblebee as well?

Oh... My... God...

I totally missed that. I just went and had another look in the box, and sure enough, it was in there. When I pulled out the big boxed Optimus and the Movie, there were some bits of cardboard and a white block that I didn't get a good look at, but just thought it was a block of styrofoam to keep the stuff from moving around.

That is like, the best surprise I've had in ages... to find a toy that I wasn't even expecting (I had no idea that the 'bonus' toy with the DVD had it's own bonus toy - I thought Stealth BBee was just a JP TRU exclusive). That makes this limited edition toy even better value - take out the cost of the BluRay, the Legends figure and the shipping, and that Leader sized toy isn't too much above what some stores here charged for that size class.

That litttle find has just made my day. Thanks Kyle. :D

If you haven't transformed a rotf leader Prime yet, it might make a good post to set a timer and take a photo every 5 minutes from the unboxing to chart your progress. It took me about 40 minutes to transform him the first time and I was using instructions :o. But your superior transforming experience points (about +2350 greater than mine) should serve you well.

WOOOO! I finally hit 1337! I managed to score a swag of G1 toys for free, and I also picked up the Encore Cassettes (thanks to dirge). Fastlane was the first toy I grabbed from that lot, so I'm counting him as my 1337th sevenrfournfivefzerormthreer!(7r4n5f0rm3r)1!one!!~ ;D

I would say they will stay that price until all stock is gone, it seems they just want to get rid of them

animated voyagers are still $49.95 which is interesting

S'alright, I still have my original Mirage and Sunstreaker from my childhood. :) And before anyone asks, no sorry, I'm not selling these extras. My original Mirage is broken at the waist whereas this extra one isn't. I'm keeping them both so I can have one of each to display in robot and vehicle modes on my shelf. I don't intentionally collect doubles to do this, usually I do it when I get reissues. But since I got these babies for free (and we know that they won't ever be reissued), then yeah, I'm gonna keep them.

That Skystalker is also an extra for me, so I'm selling my old one. See here (http://www.otca.com.au/boards/showthread.php?p=147121). :)

I got the Classics Megatron vs Optimus Prime pack, Universe deluxe Dinobot, Cheetor and Smokescreen.
But due to some idiot in the postal services employ I got a box of damp figures (see "I need to vent" for more).
So yeah, I'll probally either sell them, play around with them or just chuck them out (yeah, I'm that annoyed at the moment).
I like keeping the packaging, sorta hard to do if it's falling apart from wetness (in my experience, wet cardboard/paper never dries well).

Yeah it never does dry well but the best you can do is try to keep the packaging 'straight' as in its natural shape and allow it to dry and let fate take its course.

It is totally Engrish. This is Budiansky Grimlock. There should be no comma anywhere between "me" and "Grimlock", they've put spaces before any sets of exclamation marks on the entire box and comics Grimlock has never said anything like "Humans are pest !!" Even at his least eloquent he eliminated verbs or pronouns or changed the case of subjective pronouns to objective ones, he didn't change plurals to singular. It's written by someone who can't properly write in English in the first place, let alone successfully imitate a dialect.

EDIT: and come to think of it, I doubt he would be meaning "Humans are a pest" anyway, he'd mean "Humans are pests." Which in Budiansky Grimlockese circa Marvel US #30-50 would be something along the lines of "Me Grimlock. Humans pests." :)

Ok well I didn't consider the punctuation but you've made a good (exclamation) point or two there. Can't say it would bother me though.. I guess the box would look better without the dialog box.

EDIT: yeah your probably right, "Humans are pests" sounds like something Grimlock would say
