Is he missing a golden round thing on his left side of his stomach?

2nd June 2010, 01:17 PM
Was it one of their loose ones or a proper packaged one?

If loose, then it is more likely a factory second/reject (like a lot of the other loose figures they seemed to get their hands on lately).

If a proper packaged one, then check if others are having the same problem, as it could be like that with all of them.

Well its a loose one, actually its missing a rotary blade and this photo might explain what is wrong with it. I have highlighted it with red

It looked like they had just restocked the shelves tbh... I've never seen the TF shelves at my local Big W so well stocked, nor has it ever been so quick to get the latest releases. :p

(Btw, I might be wrong, but I think it's 2 Sea Sprays per case along with one Ratchet and one Payload)

Received these today courtesy of Iceburn:

I've been wanting to get a hold of the Golden Disks since I saw pics of them, I loved Beastwars and thought that these were absolutely necessary as they were a main fixture to the series. The Micromasters are in absolutely great condition and I'm digging the pair of them, now to trac down the little cop car to complete the emergency patrol. :D

http://i1032.photobucket.com/albums/a409/Darkone666au/JUN02ACQ-2.jpg

Finally, back in Megatrons grasp! :p, I'd also like to thank Icey for the cool little Movie Bumblebee statue, he's tiny and gold and was unexpected. :D

They are cool (http://www.otca.com.au/boards/showthread.php?t=7721). I have a few myself. It's weird that they're advertised as part of ROTF but only have '07 movie characters :confused:

Picked me up a Hunt for the Decepticons Dirge today.

I like the g1 touches to the robot mode (shoulder intakes, cockpit-looking thing on the chest, the conehead) but man was it fiddly to transform. And the previously mentioned cockpit looking thing keeps falling off.

My five-year-old son picked up the Jolt rpm to go with the devastator racetrack i got for them last month.

It's been a while between drinks (maybe because of the Transformers drought) but today I got my drank on and bought the delightful Generations Thrust. Now all we need is a leader class Broadside for him to land on...Great toy though, love the chrome cockpit and thrusters (which, for people yet to purchase this fine toy, are hidden under the rear stabilisers in the packaging).

4th June 2010, 09:57 PM
Damn... the more I'm seeing of Thrust, the more I wanna rush out and get one (great pic by the way Doubledealer).

I'm kinda conflicted ATM :confused: I need to curtail my spending habits by sticking to lines that I actually want and before all these sightings came about, resigned myself to collecting WFC toys only.

I don't see this ending well for my wallet. Come to think of it, placing my thoughts on a forum for Transformers ain't gonna help cause I know what most of you would say - "just get 'em all" :p

4th June 2010, 10:54 PM
Thanks (and blame :mad:;)) to Heroic Decepticon for inspiring me to acquire my current holy grail and the greatest Transformer combiner of all time, Liokaiser! Additional thanks (and further blame) to him for also inspiring me to acquire them individually boxed (as opposed to in a boxset) for the great box art.

These are the legitimate Chinese reissues from 1995, and the figures are in wonderful condition. Good stickers, although one or too are sloppy placed. Tight, but not stiff joints, and no GPS damage.

I don't normally say this, but "LOL". :D No, I'm fairly sure that Killbisons don't generally have NEST stickers on them.

Well done on your purchase, Jay - I can tell from the "interesting eBay items" posts that you've been making over the past year that you've had your eyes on Breastforce for quite some time. :)

Mine doesn't have the 'NEST' deco on it. Mine's the boxset version.

That and the fact that if it was supposed to be there, even as a 1995 Chinese reissue, it would still predate any other reference to NEST by fourteen years.

jaydisc
4th June 2010, 11:58 PM
Yeah, I never thought it was related to modern day NEST (or rather vice versa), rather just coincidence. I can't seem to find a pic anywhere of that side of Killibison. Maybe that's his bad side. It's also seemingly the only transparent (and textual) sticker. I can't come up with any sound theory explaining it.

I suspect the previous owner must have had an extra NEST sticker lying around at sometime over the past year and decided to stick it on there. It's literally a 21st century ROTF NEST sticker - it even has the insignia: http://tfwiki.net/w2/images2/4/4d/NEST_insignia.png

5th June 2010, 10:20 AM
How downright bizarre. Hard to imagine a collector possessing these deciding to augment their stickers. I'll take a more detailed look this evening and ask the seller (who claimed to be a proxy seller).

5th June 2010, 11:16 AM
Awesome, jay. Kiokaiser is the epitome of G1 combiners - and a worthy grail. I still remember the feeling when I got mine way back when - so yeah I can imagine how thrilled you must be.

And thanks for the Lego acquisition:

My pickups so far this month. There's was a second Drift at the Big W I grabbed this guy from this morning - any Sydneysiders interested, LMK (I stashed it!).

I didn't notice at the time, but it seems Sashimi (the goldfish in the background) wanted in on the photo...

I went to Big W Campsie. There was a big fun fair there which had blocked off most of the road. I circled around and found no street parking and then I thought to dare and drive into the Shopping Center car park which was mad house but persisted with the streets. I circled for ages but suddenly I felt the touch and got the power to go into the eye of the storm and found parking!

http://kupscigar.com/2010/050610.JPG

I was lucky to find all 4 Generations toys. I took the last of them and felt very happy as I was very close to missing out. These toys are almost literally flying off the shelves leaving the crappy ROTF stuff in the dust.

I have not been toy hunting since 2007 for something that I was truly enthusiastic about. It's a good feeling and I hope its not another 3 years until the next time!

Thanks again.

kup
5th June 2010, 07:29 PM
I don't think your toy is a KO, more likely that the previous owner decided to put the NEST stickers on Kilbison because he also has a 'bull' theme.

I'll check my Kilbison and let you know if the copyright stamps match.

kup
5th June 2010, 07:39 PM
I think you are safe. The copyright stamp on mine is almost identical except for it lacking the 'Made in China' bit and the other arm doesn't have a stamp.

http://kupscigar.com/fixes/killbison.JPG

It's fine.

By the way, congratulations on getting the Liokaiser! :)

BTW: I just checked by European Killbison and the copyright stamps exactly matches yours. It is now confirmed that yours is legit since the Chinese probably used the European Rescueforce molds.

Mmm... as I suggested, those are all ROTF stickers (note also the 4-sided movie Decepticon eyes.) I honestly think the toy itself is fine, just that someone thought it needed sprucing up with some extra stickers. :rolleyes:

Yes I heard of it but I didn't know if it was ever released.

I am surprised by how close it seems to the official toy despite both being based on the same character model.

That statement... doesn't make much sense :S

if they're both based on the same character model, it would make sense for it to be similar... in this case, they're both based on the same character, but different character models - one being his cybertron mode and the other being his earth mode... I think your statement would make a tad more sense if you mean that it's surprising how similar the two are eventhough one's the cybertron mode and the other's the earth mode - chalk that down to the actual designers of the robots though - the design was really similar between the two from the start :)

Nice, who's the blue Bumblebee?

It's actually a blue Cliffjumper, and was released in Europe and Brazil during Gen1.

Brazil and Argentina had a variety of recoloured Minivehicles (Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Windcharger, Brawn, Bumblejumper) during 1985 and again in 1987.

At the TFwiki website (http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Carrera_%28G1%29), Carrera is shown in blue.

From the TFU website and TFwiki (http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Category:South_American-original_characters):

Carrera (http://www.tfu.info/1985/Autobot/Carerra/carerra.htm) was Cliffjumper in green, white, blue, gold.
Jipe (http://www.tfu.info/1985/Decepticon/Jipe/jipe.htm) was a brown or blue Brawn (as a Decepticon).

"Death" Starscream isn't that toy's actual name. It's just Starscream Black Version (Takara went through this phase where they did random black repaints. Thankfully that doesn't happen anymore! (http://www.takaratomy.co.jp/products/TF/products/mp/mp01b.html) :p ;)).

But I don't blame rampagesss for unofficially retconning it as "death" Starscream to give an otherwise random black repaint some purpose. I did the same thing with the JafCon 9 black version of Convoy (http://www.tfu.info/2000/Cybertron/JAFConvoy/jafconvoy.htm) (in the Gokiverse he's "Matrix Death Optimus Prime") :)

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y227/goktimusprime/Transformers/primedeath.jpg

how do u know its not the other way around? in alt mode the guns sit more straight lined up in the brown ball joint. also looks more straight in robot mode when he his holding them. nevermind i was talking about pointing backwards and u pointing forwards in alt mode so they are the same:o

so when in alt mode the guns pointing forward indent on inside:D

Other than the annoying blades that hinder elbow articulation when retracted, Prime is amazing. Also, the grill bottom halves can be extended to form heels for the feet. None of the pictures or reviews posted showed that before. Makes the figure more stable in robot mode.

While not real "Transformers", they're perfect for integrating with a Transformer collection:

Defender is new. I've had Combat Calibur for a while. Their combination of die cast, more matte colors and great detailing works well when displaying them together.

Another acquisition by proxy - Legends Devestator.

This is for my son's 8th birthday next month. The poor little guy has been saving up his pocket money but at $2 a week it'd take him aaaaages. He was proud enough when he had saved up $11.
I'm a bit worried about the complexity level but I guess he can always call on me.
I've read some disquiet about its price but it seems alright to me. Individual Legends are $7, and this has seven figures making it $49. It would have been nice if the price was less for "buying in bulk", but at least it doesn't cost more than seven individual Legends.
