Went to Kmart at midnight for their sale... didn't realise only select toys (i.e. old shelfwarmers) are on sale, not all toys. :( I was planning on grabbing Skyburst on sale, but it wasn't, so I left it.

Grabbed Deluxe Ironhide though -- not on sale, but $25 is a fair price (considering that the last several Deluxes I've been buying have been at $30). Does anyone know if the 5-pack PCCs are on sale at Big W?

BigW has deluxes at $19 and the 5pack PCCs are $30. Yes they are on sale. I grabbed PCC as fodders yesterday

Dear god that is a Helluva lot!, congrats Damned on the milestone. :D

Today I went down to my local Big W for the Sale with $50 and came back with these guys which cost me $49.25 :D:
ROTF Decepticon Mindwipe (Last one)
PCC Decepticon Smoulder (Last one)
ROTF Decepticon Divebomb (3rd Last one)

Not bad I thought.
Love Bi-Planes, Mindwipe looks awesome in both Alt & Bot modes and Smoulder isn't all too bad considering I'm not particularly interested in PCCs.

Tell you guys what though, I don't think Big W Dapto has sold a single ROTF Leader Class figure or ROTF Supreme Class Devastator figure today at all, the RPMs, Legends, Scouts, PCCs, Deluxes and Voyagers are flying off the shelves but even at sales prices, nobody seems to want any of the big guys. :(:p

Picked up from the post office yesterday, after I returned home - Alternity Starscream and Skywarp (with bonus Cybermissiond DVD from RK), Box of PVC Act 10 (I wanted one of the regular ones, and hoped for a chase figure, but the seller already had them all opened to look for the rare ones), my Dion group order (still haven't received my own Membership Dion figure yet), and the Punch/Cyclonus group order.
Plus today, I bought FAB Arcee, after failing to find one in America.

1st July 2010, 10:28 PM
Picked up Drift today for $18.66 @ Big W.

If I had more money I'd have come home with TFA Ultra Magnus Leader, Optimus Prime Leader and Starscream Leader too. Unfortunately I don't have $170 bucks on me to blow like that.

BigPenney
2nd July 2010, 10:25 AM
How'd your first one break?

The ball socket on one of the upper legs cracked, making the joint so loose that the ball would just fall out.
I tried repairing it with glue but as soon as i put the ball in, it would crack again :(.

Why didn't you return it if it was originally faulty?
I didn't notice anything wrong with it till about 2 or 3 months after buying it, so i wrapped tape around the leg :p, put it on my shelf and kind of forgot about it till yesterday when I saw the other one on the discount trolley :D.

+1 - it was supposedly a Triple changer - Plane , robot and horse:). Shame it never saw mass production and release.:( Would've been awesome

Congrats on the book, looks amazingly mint Eruntalon, ebay? may I ask how much it set you back? Trying to locate that version (deluxe) as well - I got the HK release one with the dark cover, but I wanted a newer one coz my book needs binding plus I wanted to get both versions:D

They look very nice, don't they? I like the colours on Cheetor and Tigatron, but for me, the alt-mode only seems to work for Ravage (as a modern interpretation of a cassette - often used as computer storage devices in the 80s).

Is that a Voyager Class Bulkhead? If so, are you happy with it? I'm interested in getting one...

Leader, $20 nib. :)

I have all of the animated leaders now. They are great fun to play with. Once I figured out bulkhead, (because of the wrong instructions it came with), I transformed him a couple of times. I also did figure it out just after taking that picture on how to raise the "head" section to clip the arms in too, so it's all good. :) Bit of force required to lift the whole section up.

Its a very nice book to read. Lots of colored pictures and drawings of the characters - with third person bio included. MOst of the characters featured here includes all the rest of the background cast - like rattletrap, Grandus, Yoketron Strika, Rodimus Prime, etc. Plenty of tidbits which explains how the process of designing a character goes about. plenty of other data to expand the TFA universe lore - kinda like issue # 8 of G1 MTMTE. Mostly focuses on Season 3 of the TFA series. At $27.47 it's worth buying IMO.

Picked up HA Bumblebee and PCC Searchlight as part of the K-Mart midnight opening for the toy sale. I love HA Bumblebee! Can't wait to get Sideswipe & Skids off layby.

I put Seaspray, Starscream, both PCC 5-packs, AA Bumblebee, AA Ironhide, HA Skids, and HA Sideswipe on Layby. I wanted to do a Christmas layby, but you have to wait until 1 Dec before you can pick it up! :( So in 8 weeks time, those guys will also be mine!

Well there is actually a board game in the pages :D:D

I havent bothered to thoroughly examine those pages yet. Im still reading the bios - its a nice approach to making out a character bio - not presented as matter of fact but rather from the point of view of.... , each 3rd season episode as well is narrated like a story not much like summary of data. What I like really is the product line up pics, and the unreleased toys section as well as the prototype sections which sadly will never see production. shame :(:(:( Also some elaboration/plans on the supposedly Season four for Animated which got canned due to the release of the Movie - Animated was after all a filler line/series to keep the hype up leading to the Movie. BUt Im so glad they actually developed a whole universe ( which is a mishmash homager to all preceding lines as well as variations all its own.

Picked up the All Spark Almanac Vol.2 today at a certain mythological creature named shop ;).

I have to say it's a nice swan song for the series. Vol.2 is much much better than Vol.1. It covers all the bit players and cameos with write-ups and all of season 3 covered and completely dissected. Eg. The members of Prowls old dojo (Cyber Ninja Corps) broken down, size comparisons of all major characters, a board game in the middle of the book, all the different "Supremes", all locations given all the minuteast of detail. Nothing was left untouched. The back end of the book touches ont he toys with pictures and a LOT of prototype shots of existing and non existing molds. This book satiated my hunger for more Animated with every speck of the lore covered.

TFA fans this is a MUST have. G1 fans will get a kick to see all the tributes and Animated versions of oldies ;).

MISB Road Caesar Giftset.

The only minor fault is the crack in the clear plastic on Blacker (I think Kyle might have molested it during Customs :D ) but apart from that is brilliant and bigger than I thought.

Hey valkyrie_76, you know that ain't really Road Caesar until you combine them. ;) :D :p
Is that the reviewer that says "BULLSH*T' all the time?
Oh no, he uses far more choice words than that. ;) The video's worth watching because he shows you the code to access continues (you can use it an unlimited number of times) - which, unless you're a gaming genius - you're gonna need it! (cos the default is 3 lives with no continues and no checkpoints) I wish I knew that code when I was a kid... I never even clocked level 1. :( :(

"The hit detection is very biased. To begin with, you're such a big target anyway, but if something comes anywhere near your perimeter it counts as a hit. However if you're trying to hit an enemy and your bullet goes anywhere other than dead centre, it passes through. And everything's so small, so fast and moves at such irregular patterns hitting your mark is like trying to p!$$ into a shot glass that's spinning on a record player that's strapped to a running cheetah's back while you're riding a unicycle on a tightrope blindfolded!"

Picked up the All Spark Almanac Vol.2 today at a certain mythological creature named shop ;).

I have to say it's a nice swan song for the series. Vol.2 is much much better than Vol.1. It covers all the bit players and cameos with write-ups and all of season 3 covered and completely dissected. Eg. The members of Prowls old dojo (Cyber Ninja Corps) broken down, size comparisons of all major characters, a board game in the middle of the book, all the different "Supremes", all locations given all the minuteast of detail. Nothing was left untouched. The back end of the book touches ont he toys with pictures and a LOT of prototype shots of existing and non existing molds. This book satiated my hunger for more Animated with every speck of the lore covered.

TFA fans this is a MUST have. G1 fans will get a kick to see all the tributes and Animated versions of oldies ;).
Where did ya get yours? Send me an sms, now your review is so making me want one right now! Would Borders have it?

I was like "There all the same thing you stupid *****!" but you know people, they like to get cocky so I left it.

Does it come with the instructions on merging chromia and acree?

I think Hasbro has officially stated that they're not including the combination instructions in with Elita-1 (probably means they can simply reprint the Chromia ones) but will put the combination instructions on their website at some point.

In the mean time, there have been a few good unofficial combinations worked out using Arcee & two Chromias.

Bumblebee initially scanned for $50. Cheats

Well $50 is the RRP on the HA figures. KMart just decided to lower their price on Sideswipe and Skids, but never lowered it for Bumblebee. The price had been lowered for the toy sale though. But the toy sale did finish on the 14th.

A shame they didnt have the supermarket way - if you scan it wrong, first item free and subsequent products 10% off!

The regulations governing supermarkets and retail outlets are different though, and considering most people only buy one item rather than multiple copies of the same item, you shouldn't be entitled to what is essentially theft. More often than not (as happened with you) you will get the price seen on the shelf but to try for more than that is just petty.

Sorry if my language is strong but I get enough people trying to pull that one on me when I work at Target, that I kinda get a bit sick of people trying it. You don't get something for nothing!

Oh, and in other news I picked up Generations Thrust, Optimus Prime, and Bumblebee from Uncle Pete's the other day.

It's funny how inferior the Classics Seeker mould now seems when compared to modern toy designs like Drift and the WFC figures. The mould seemed like such a breakthrough when Starscream was first released in the Classics line up, but only 4 years (has it been that long?!)later the engineering seems really inferior.

I noticed that Hasbro acknowledges this with more accurate transformation ratings now. Thrust is rated as a Level 2 Easy transformation, compared to WFC Prime and Bumblebee at Level 4 and Drift at level 3.

The WFC deluxes are even acknowledged as more advanced to transform than Voyager Sea Spray.

I was waiting in great anticipation over the course of this week for some Transformers I bought to arrive. Since they were posted by EMS, I made it a point to check their status daily using EMS Tracking. It was fun to see where they are and know how soon I might expect them. On 15 July, the status on the EMS system said "Delivered". So I headed home, with great anticipation and a tinge of excitement I might add, full expecting to see a slip of paper in my letter box telling me to collect my parcel from concierge.

They didn't arrive. This was Thursday.

On Friday, I checked again. Still no slip of paper from concierge.

I sneaked a check on Saturday. Still nothing.

This morning, I got a call from concierge through the intercom. The lady at the other end said "you have 2 parcels waiting for you to collect."

SWEET!

Today's stuff.

I wanted to get the WFC game, but wasn't sure what version I should get, so I bought both, Xbox and PS3, just in case (Harvey Norman price-matched Dick Smiths' $54 for each).

So I figured that I needed a console to play the game... and now that I had both formats of the game, I couldn't decide which console to get - PS3 for $440 or Xbox for $398...

So I bought both...

And then I figured, I really need a proper TV to plug in these consoles, so had a look at one they had - 32", Full HD, LCD TV... below cost price at $768...so bought that too...

I've been naughty today.

(plus had to get some HD cables and surge protector, plus a year's subscription to Xbox live).

The invoice said I saved $330, but spent $1940... No more new toys for a while. :(

It might be a little while before I get online as I need to practice with the singleplayer campaign first (on PS3 first).
The PS3 is more for the bluray player, while xbox is more for long-term gaming, as it's much cheaper console is making it more popular with the general public. But both are to give me more access to people who do online gaming, and more of an incentive for me to make more time for myself for leisure time (if I don't get out of the house much for fun these days, I can bring the fun to the house instead).

Last Friday I also found some new RPMs at BigW Garden City - the new Diecast ones.
They look and feel so much better, making the original plastic ones look like knockoffs. And they are priced at the new lower $4.74, compared to old $8-10 price, making them more competative to Hotwheels/matchbox.

I found 7, but the card backs suggest that there are at least 11 new ones out in the first assortment, which includes 'Metal Heroes', 'Nest' redecos, and 'Stunticon' redecos.

Below are the 7 new diecast ones on the right, compared to 4 similar plastic ones on the left.
http://www.toycollectors.com.au/1007a.jpg

Metal Heros series (8)
1 - Bumblebee (above)
2 - Jetfire (above)
3 - Optimus Prime (above)
4 - Soundwave (missed)
5 - Barricade (missed)
6 - Ironhide (missed)
7 - Sideswipe (above)
8 - (unknown)

NEST Global Alliance series (3)
1 - Bumblebee (missed)
2 - Optimus (above)
3 - Ironhide (above)

Stunticon series (3)
1 - Bumblebee (above)
2 - Barricade (not out yet)
3 - Lockdown (not out yet)

(other series will come out later)

I think it is good to have a re-release of the main characters in diecast, otherwise these better RPMs still won't sell because they would only be weird redecos or unknown characters.

The downside is that the diecast ones are now too heavy for the Devastator Trackset to launch (which might have been a factor for doing plastic RPMs in the first place). And Jetfire is too wide to fit as well, even with the wings folded up.

Did you buy both consoles new Griffin? I think you can get them cheaper pre-owned ... and did you get the Xbox360S? (they're quite massively improved over the old ones ...) ...

Yikes! I was indecisive about which console to get for ages but finally chose the PS3 which meant I happily purchased the WFC and ROTF games (during the Dick Smith sale) for the PS3.

I just haven't actually purchased my PS3 yet :o. But if enough of my stuff gets sold [/Shameless Plug] I will feel comfortable to splash out on a new console.

I find I don't have much time to play video games which is why I'm still holding out. I don't know how you'll find time to play games on two tv-based consoles!

The regulations governing supermarkets and retail outlets are different though, and considering most people only buy one item rather than multiple copies of the same item, you shouldn't be entitled to what is essentially theft. More often than not (as happened with you) you will get the price seen on the shelf but to try for more than that is just petty.

Sorry if my language is strong but I get enough people trying to pull that one on me when I work at Target, that I kinda get a bit sick of people trying it. You don't get something for nothing!

Well since you were not at the Kmart store at the time, I feel it is necessary to clarify the situation.

Where the HA toys were kept, it had $35 each and all the toys were sitting there all mixed up. I did not see a $50 price tag.

The fact that Kmart reduced it to $35 in line with the other two indicates that they had a pricing issue? I would have been happy for the manager to show me, but they didn't.

Whilst this is a public forum, the thoughts you believe in may not necessarily be shared by your employer. As such it is in your best interests to keep these thoughts to yourself for the sake of your employment. :mad:.

A pack of small black fold back clips would do the job easily. You shouldn't use a bonding agent because you might want to reconfigure it some day. The panels are easily switchable and you can do a rectangular or square Teletraan or a box. Flexibility. Bar also the stickers, which are pretty crap, this is an awesome set and as close to a Teletraan playset as I can get. heh.

Show me a picture of how the plates join together and supposed to clip together from the back and I'll see if I can think of something.

Best not to glue something that big together as it is likely to break when you carry it anywhere and when it does it'll look ugly.

2 x Seacons (1 x The_Damned):D ... Although my wife had some rather low brow comments considering his colours and the nice chrome sword.:mad:

Finally managed to secure a nice Highbrow for sub AU$100. :) Getting a strong System Shock vibe from that Headmaster. Very cool!

you clip it from the back not the side or the front. I used these. (http://www.pintorex.co.uk/photos/foldback%20clips.jpg) the 15mm or 19mm ones will do the trick.

I'll take a pic to show you. seriously, you can't tell at all that its clipped and its solid as a rock after that.


ah yes these work like a charm at the back wall panels HD, but Ive also reinforced the floor to wall connection with blu tack - works really well:D:D:D Now I can play with the set and not fear of an "earthquake" effect going to happen when I do fiddle with it heheheh:D

ROTF on the Wii from Target for half-price.
I have heard bad reviews but the kids enjoyed it when they hired it and it is two-player.
And a Legends Devastator for me. This is the third one I have bought from the one store. The first two were for two of my sons, although the youngest will be annoyed when he sees mine. His is a birthday present and his birthday ain't until September. "Where's minnnnne? :("

Got myself a Generations Thrust :D Thanks to those that let me know where they were sighted. Picked it up at DJ's Castle Hill today. The best bit - didn't cost me anything cause I unearthed a DJ's voucher which I completely forgot that I had. Also picked up a copy of RE5 for PS3 just to use the remaining amount. Now, I just need Dirge to complete my coneheads :cool:

Something different - went to the Rotary book fair up in Dural this morning and found myself a couple of bargains -

G2 Stamp Block Set
Find Your Fate Adventure Book "The Invisibility Factor"
Fighting Fantasy Gamebook "Scorpion Swamp" (in unread condition - most happy about this because this was my first ever Fighting Fantasy book)
