From the top...
The magnificent Wal-Mart exclusives thanks to STL! Just looking for a second Big Daddy now to open!
The awesome Takara Classics Megs thanks to Jaydisc! Inspiring my repaint of the Hasbro version this guy is staying MOISCPB!
The brilliant Classics Cliffjumper Kit thanks to Kyle! Love it so much and even Bumblebee gets a gun out of it!
The scholastic Robotic Desk Set thanks to me! I own opened Japanese versions of these but meh...can always do with more!
The all powerful G1 Optimus Prime there I am very proud of! I got him for five dollars and he had all his chrome rubbed off, the red paint was chipped to buggery and the stickers had looked like a dog chewed them, swallowed them, regurgitated them and then reapplied them.
I touched up his paint, re-chromed his bits, got him a shiny new set of stickers and finally acquired new fists and a gun and he is now good to continue the never-ending battle! Nice work me. Top job!
Sexy G1 Sky Linux from some random ebayer in HK who was selling him at a good price!
And finally the back of my lady there modeling the gorgeous Autobot jacket from Madman which I am loving walking to work with it's little in-built iPod interior pocket and Autobot insignia zipper.
Happy all round!:)
EDIT: Thanks again to the helpful and friendly members of this forum for assisting in my acquisitions. You guys rock!

:oDon't hate me for this, Repro Photon cannon and double barrelled gun showed up in the post today for Fort Max. Quite high quality copies as far as looks go, the plastic is of a lesser quality and from what I remember a lot lighter than the originals but unless you have had previous experience handling the 2 guns you wouldn't know.:D

It looked familiar to me, but flicking through the Generations book I'd have never guessed the owner, because I almost missed it as I skipped past the later Gen1 era JP toys. I was quite surprised to see that it is Star Convoy's gun, which is an odd score for you (a spare if you have the rare original, or the expensive, hard-to-find reissue, or end up getting either later).

The Ultimate G1 Book. If you're a G1 Fan & you don't already own this book, get your hands on a copy! (Well, everyone except for benben cos he'll just end up drooling all over the pages :D)

It was ¥ 8,799 (It set me back around about $90 one week ago). Kinda pricey but well worth it.

Here are the ISBN's. I'm sure they'll help you out when you're googling it.

I was eyeing that one too. I managed to nab one for $50 and its stitting at the inlaws house. Amazon Japan wouldn't post it to my aussie address for some reason. If I remember correctly there was another one for 10,000yen brand new apparently.

There are quite a few non-deluxe editions kicking aorun on Yahoo auctions japan. I scoured around some jap book shop websites for a bit, but didn't have any luck there.

I dont mind helping on the translating front, but I do have slow internet and am usually a busy monkey, so it may take me a while.;)

Thanks Guys. I just had a really good look at it. Awesome galleries (I never knew there were so many Micromasters & Pretenders) and seemingly thousands of conceptual designs :p - It's basically a Picture-centric G1 encyclopedia.

But what it's really done is made me wish that the 14th of May would get here sooner = http://www.ezydvd.com.au/item.zml/798922

Repro'd up.

Music Label Soundwave who just looks so much more Classic now.

First Omnibot done. Overdrive needed it the most.

And Springer who I got as a belated Christmas gift from Stencilator. Cleaned him with turps and a toothbrush first, chromed his gun, engine and wheels, replaced the rubber tires and finally stickered him all up. w00t.

Fresh stickers really seems to bring them to life! It's as though they jumped in a time machine & showed up in 2008. :p

STL
5th April 2008, 09:38 PM
That does look good but its a bit too retro for me. I like the newer classics b/c they have more modernised looks. I reckon stickerless Soundwave looks more classy and new whereas those stickers age it.

However, if given the opportunity to pursue one cheap, i'd definitely get some stickers cos it is a nice look but i'm not about to tarnish the only 1 i have.

Tetsuwan Convoy
6th April 2008, 04:21 PM
I think whats the point in having all the Transformers look the same? That's why I am glad the the Classics aren't carbon colour copies and have some detailing differences (just for an example). The Soundwave stickers do a good job, but I see Music label as a "newer" version so will keep him different. No denying those stickers do a good job though.

New stuff for me

What the hell were they thinking with BM Rattraps size? Ratzilla?
Finally got a TM Tarantulus and he is fantastic! My favourite character in the show by a long shot.

Black Arachnia is pretty good too. One question though, in spider mode, does her head just look up the spiders bumb? Seems to be a lot of robot heads in animal bumbs in what I have experienced with Beast Machines.............:eek:

benben2142

GoktimusPrime
6th April 2008, 04:49 PM
hipps?!?!? (o_O)


What the hell were they thinking with BM Rattraps size? Ratzilla?
That's nothing compared to Nightscream and the infamous Supreme Cheetor. Air Attack Optimus Primal is also huge, but is actually a decent toy - i.e.: the figure justifies its price point and size, whereas Nightscream and Supreme Cheetor are oversized Megas/Deluxes (IMO the best BM Cheetor toy was the Deluxe Night Slash Cheetor ;p)

Tetsuwan Convoy
6th April 2008, 04:55 PM
Yeh, I remember mucking around with a mtes supreme cheetor and its quite an un-gainly figure thats fer sure!

What struck me as most odd though for BM Rattrap was that the show had him so small, yet the figure is larger than Primal (mega vs delx). I know that they don't worry about scale, but I think if a less complex deluxe figure was made it would have been a much better toy. Just seems a little silly really.

GoktimusPrime
6th April 2008, 07:50 PM
Yeah, the scale is completely off in Beast Machines.

Even though Transformers has never had a consistent scale (e.g.: Blaster is taller than Devastator) the scale has never been too grossly off scale - they're reasonably close enough for people to suspend disbelief and see them as being approximately the same scale.

For example, you can see in this pic that although Deluxe Bonecrusher is much smaller than Leader Class Optimus Prime, they're close enough that they can still "visually interact" with each other...

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y227/goktimusprime/Transformers/Movie%20poses/moviepose_optimusvsbonecrusher.jpg

The problem with Beast Machines is that some of the figures are so greatly off-scale that it becomes much harder to suspend disbelief and visually perceive them as being approximately within scale to each other.

http://www.axaday.com/Museum/Tour/Tf/0608.JPG
Take a look at Nightscream on the back left there! He's towering over most of those Maximals yet in the show he appears to be Basic sized! Phwoar!

Part of the problem with the way that the BM TFs look in the show, I reckon, is that Hasbro - in a rush to get the show out at the same time as the toys - only gave Mainframe animators conceptual sketches of the toys, long before the toys were completed. Just a personal theory of mine - we do know that the show was made very quickly. In North America it actually aired before the toys hit shelves, which had never happened before.

http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn204/Pulse_Warrior/Random/JungleBonecrusher-BotMode.jpg

In my opinion, that is one helluva lot better paint job than the original. Even the arm kibble doesn't take anything away from it. Too bad they missed a few things - namely the head, forearms, hips & legs. But hey, no complaints from this end. If there was some overgrown bushes near my place, I would have taken an action pic (You know, with the whole jungle thing) but that can wait for another time. :p

In my opinion, that is one helluva lot better paint job than the original.
Yeah but to be fair the original was going for more movie-accurate colours which is more faithful to how the actual vehicle looks in real life (albeit with custom oversized prow).

Actually, even the original toy is less bland than the movie model! Of course, in real life army vehicles are going for pure practicality and functionality, not looks.

most importantly, is that its complete except for the buildings which can be replaced with other non-TF gimmicks

Rather impressed by TC Prime - kibbly but good idea. Most of the attention has been paid to the vehicle mode so robo-mode is kind of kibbly but a great idea nonetheless.

What I don't get is when comparing your flood of questions about Masterforce over here: http://www.otca.com.au/boards/showthread.php?t=377 & the fact that you've only just acquired the Masterforce Box Set - it just doesn't fit together.

What I mean is... Have you been researching the story first so you can watch it at a later date?

- G1 Slugslinger and his targetmaster Caliburst: I had a very very anxious moment playing w/ him. The Decepticon Targetmasters are renowned for snapping at the hinges and I dropped mine onto the floor. The gun burst into two pieces and my heart thumped wildly. Grabbing at the two pieces I stared in horror momentarily before realising the front of the gun came off! Phew. But yeah, dropping the Decep Targetmasters is the last thing I want to do.
I think he's a pretty nice toy overall.

* Strafe should have white missiles, the Decepticons Cyberjets were the ones with yellow missles. However this Strafe also has a Decepticon logo (see below) which makes me think that this is maybe the Japanese version that came with extra stickers... but I'm not sure. :confused:

No, that's the regular Cyberjet Strafe. Both he and Jetfire had Decepticon logos, even though none of the _Decepticon)_ Cyberjets did. Air Raid has USAF logos.

Methinks it's just a regular Hasbro one with the wrong missiles.

What are your thoughts on Transcanning Prime? He looks very weak in both robot modes. Protoform has lots of gaps but great poseability. The guns look real nice on Prime but it looks really kibbly with stuff hanging everywhere.

I was considering one but I just broke the bank in a massive way. It might be a month before I'm even able to consider buying stuff again. :o:(:eek::D

EDIT:
I got Landcross myself but was the original in this Micromaster size or was it in a larger size? I've seen 'em on eBay but was never too certain and figured I might have to get both the original for the larger and the smaller reissue. Or am I just plain wrong?

iceburn
11th April 2008, 11:56 PM
gimmick wise..its rather innovative and cute
i would prefer the protoform compared to the scanned mode (really kiddish) and found it hard to transform into vehicle mode hence no pictures taken for that...

money wise, i say keep it in your pocket unless you wish to invest in it as part of the movie collection. i also regretted getting Landcross.
btw, i won't be bringing it along to the sanddown fair as i fear of losing the mini-parts (which i did drop a couple of times while attaching it)

sorry (melb) guys :P

??? The reissue Multiforcers are the same size as the originals. Micromasters are typically about 5cm whereas the average size of a Multiforcer is 8cm. The reissues were marketed as Micromaster Deluxes because they were reissued around the same time as the Micromaster gestalt reissues and sold in a similar fashion at convenient store outlets and being blind packed with black chase variants. But in G1 they were never marketed or portrayed as being any kind of Micromaster.

And if you think the Multiforcers are puny don't forget that the Pretender Monsters/Dinoforcers are even punier, with the average height being 6cm! Monstructor/Dinoking is only 14cm!

My eHobby Tapestry arrived during the week. It has (from a Japanese POV) every toy and recurring non-toy characters (Arcee, Unicron, Gears, Sky Lynx and so on) spanning G1 & G2.

I'm not going to take a photo (Purry, the pink cat, isn't feeling well), so here (http://tformers.com/transformers-e-hobby-transformers/9277/news.html) is TFormer's gallery. The gallery won't show it, but it's made of a polymer rather than paper. Wonderfully done!

Before anyone asks, Japan didn't get Gears or Sky Lynx back in the day. Along with Warpath & Cosmos, they weren't released in Japan until recently. Omega Supreme's upcoming release is a first for Japan also. Jetfire is featured as another show-only character - not Skyfire. Takara couldn't release Jetfire in Bandai's market!

Funnily, the Omnibots are featured, despite the toys never being released in Japan and the characters not appearing in any Japanese TF Cartoons.

Don't worry, i know how u feel. I have one from my childhood and he's still complete and in great nick (which is amazing for how old a toy he is) but I still felt like I was dumped in pool of green when I saw that box again.

It was massive and the artwork on the back was beautiful! Boy do I wish I hadn't thrown those boxes out when I was a kid. :eek: :(:mad:

I grabbed this hot little custom of eBay from Kelvin! It really is a pretty sweet looking Megatron and I was glad that I could afford it cos I luckily had an extra $60 that week. So I'm counting my lucky little stars :)

http://img170.imageshack.us/img170/598/dscf3650kw1.jpg (http://img170.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dscf3650kw1.jpg)

It really works nicely and the same mod could be made to Galvatron and still rock. I love the evil face mold, it's really meticulous and detailed. The curves and everything are absolutely awesome. To top it off, the base mould has plenty of articulation too. Thanks so much again Kelvin. Never thought I'd own one of these after seeing it on your site but am so glad to have it. It'll be moving right into my shiny Megatron collection.

Well, I've put up quite a few collection pics over at my Flickr stream (If anyone wants to have a look, that is). Those pics were put up due to some very influential TF people on the Flickr Community. :rolleyes:

But as you may well remember from the time when I first took some snaps of my TFs way back when, I'm currently severely impacted by space issues in my room (in that a vast majority of my figures were moved into position, had their photos quickly taken & then packed away again). So you could say these pics don't show off my collection in their best light (that's why I'm kinda reluctant to post 'em here too).

But if you guys & girls want me to post 'em here in my collection thread, just gimme the big Yes-ser-ree & I'll do it. :)

Get on the RK newsletter. They do broadcast the specials.

And something I've been looking forward to for quite a while arrived this morning:

I've only gotten to open Bulkhead so far and I'm absolutely in love. The toys are solid, clever, everything clicks into place, feels firm. I feel like a gleeful 7 year old!!!

EDIT: YES, we missed the RK window. Right after our first order, they introduces the Full Set of Classics deal which we missed out on and after we placed the second order, they offered the free watch.

here comes my micromasters lot from ebay:
(sorry borge, i'm keeping skystalker even though its incomplete)

http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii226/icebu12n/P4210638a.jpg

most of them are incomplete so if there's anyone with spare accessories or even the micromaster, please please please let me know.

i've a couple of doubles to get rid off here too and will post them up in my sale thread later in the week.... e.g. overlord, tailspin, flattop (base, without missile), roughstaff missile x 1, seawatch, road hugger, whisper, orange dump truck (sledge and hammer), ironworks crane staging platform

Ah, so I see you've changed your eBay name. I was pretty sure someone here would've won that lot. I was going to bid myself but alas my present predicament prevented me. Which was of course to your benefit. :p

Woo Hoo! I just bought a MOSC BW Silverbolt! :)

Too bad when he gets here, he won't be MOSC anymore (not a single one of my TFs have stayed sealed). :D

Heh. I know that feeling. I've bought sealed stuff for $200 and similar prices, only to open and de-value. If I'm spending that sort of money, I want to be able to enjoy my purchase :)

Mate, I know exactly what you're talking about. Of every single TF I've bought sealed (Alts/Binaltechs through Reissue G1's), I haven't physically been able to restrain myself from taking the TF out of it's package & playing with it - no matter how expensive it was. Even though this Silverbolt has stayed sealed for some 11 odd years, he can't stay sealed forever :D (even though someone like Verno would probably rather that I keep him sealed :)).

Animated Voyager Optimus Prime from eBay.

A great figure with a fun transformation even if the "spin" gimmick on mine is a really loose.

The spin on mine is pretty loose as well, kind of annoying

:eek: Bloody Hell, How dumb am I?

That same seller just talked me into picking up a 2nd TF from him so that I could save shipping costs. Now I'm also getting a MISB BW Inferno! (If there was a face with his hand covering his eyes, that's the one I'd be using right here).

Has this ever happened to you guys - buying a 2nd or 3rd item from a seller even though you had planned to purchase only the one?
