Excellent man, I'm glad you were able to find the pair, I've only got $19.96 left on my Lay-by :D

Haven't opened Breacher yet, but I'm slightly disappointed by Insecticon.

How odd the exact two TF's I got this week.

Now if I can just find some deluxes.

Gah! I'm flailing like a Sloth in a washing machine trying to find a Terradive. I tried 3 separate Targets yesterday and today and did the same last weekend with no joy. Tried the same amount of Toyworlds over the last few weeks and nothing newer than Wave 1 Generations...Bleh.

On the plus side I've had these fellas drop in from ebay. Had fun today restoring them as best I can before new reprolabels arrive. Below is how they look after the plastic was bathed in Polident Denture Cleanser (this stuff is seriously frickin' awesome), the screws were bathed in Diet Coke to remove rust and the stickers were removed using Ventti Premium Lighter Fluid. If you're wondering where Cyclonus' gun is, it's sitting in a jar of H202 in the back yard. Gonna send the chrome parts on Galvatron off to NSW to be re-chromed if it's not too expensive (waiting on a quote for his 3 chrome parts) but otherwise I'll be spraying them with Spaz Stix Mirror Chrome. Will put up higher quality pics of the finished products in due course. :)

On Thursday I found the reissue Transformers The Movie soundtrack at JB Hi-Fi. I've been looking for this album since Autocon mentioned he got it a while back... and I was expecting it to be just the same as the original TFTM CD (or cassette or LP :)) - but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it's not.

Aside from an entirely different cover, it also features additional tracks that were never in the original album, such as score music from Vince DiCola and the Stan Bush version of the movie theme song. While these tracks are nothing new themselves, it was great to have them on the same CD as the vocal songs from TFTM. Yay! :)

26th September 2010, 01:22 AM

From Big W Chullora. It seems that today (Saturdat 25th) several Sydney Big Ws stocked on Generations wave 2.

Now that we have Starxus, they should release a Generations Scrounge :p

Generations Megatron and maybe Darkmount today? Im still not sold on darkmounts alt mode.

GoktimusPrime
26th September 2010, 08:59 AM
I must say it's a lot better than his original G1 alt mode (http://tfwiki.net/w2/images2/2/20/Straxusaltmode.jpg), which is just too bizarre to sell to joe public. I don't mind the tank mode. I'm not a fan of the battle platform mode though... looks rather half-bummed.

26th September 2010, 10:40 AM
The 'Battle platform' mode is supposed to be his flying canon mode but boy! It is certainly something they just made up, it's not part of the design at all, it's something someone clearly made up. At least they are not advertising it as a triple changer as that would be deceitful otherwise you could leave any TF in mid transformation and call it a 3rd mode.

I like half tread tanks, they're like the sporty cousins of the real thing. If it helps seal the deal, Darkmount is f'ing awesome, I'll also be grabbing the Skullgrin retool aswell :)

26th September 2010, 04:01 PM
I got a better offer! Happened to stop by my local toyworld and discovered Generations Red Alert and Soundwave.

I like Skulgrin more than Darkmount-I like the head and i like the colours!

http://i1032.photobucket.com/albums/a409/Darkone666au/SEP28ACQ-2.jpg

I'm actually surprised with Sandstorm, for a repaint he ceratinly does give off the feeling of G1 Sandstorm, albeit not a Triple Changer, and fit's in well with the other CHUGU Legends Class figures. :)

WFC Megatron and Straxus are absolutely awesome, really fun to Transform and muck around with I found, especially Straxus as I've become quite a fan of this Tyrant since reading a number of issues of the Marvel Comic. :D

Doubledealer
28th September 2010, 11:12 PM
Yeah Darkmount is blardy awesome, Geologists can only dream of owning a pick that hardcore. :D

For me, WFC Soundwave, RotF Elita-1 *shudder* and the new Takara Prime & 'bee sets arrived today! The TFA sets display fantastically in the box as expected so that's where they'll stay. I'm interested to hear the 'Story' on the back of 'bee's box. If anyone who knows Japanese could translate it pour moi it would be very much appreciated!

Unfortunately not Goki. This is the one thing that I would have liked since I am displaying mine in the box. Also, the box is smaller than the Armada / Energon versions if anyone would care to know.

Very nice! My bro bought me Hard Hero Prime for my 18th birthday, he's great so I hope you find one. Only problem was that our new kitten at the time took a shining to his antennas and mid-chew knocked him off his perch! Prime being Prime though, he faired okay after the fall and the damage was pretty minor considering (one of the antennas snapped off). Luckily dad's a dab hand at the old DIY so he managed to fix him up so you can hardly tell! :D

Orders from the past month all arrived on the same day, of course, ticking off the missus but sending me and the kids into raptures.

From Paulbot: classics Smokescreen and carded Longview (thanks!)

From Popculturepooka: movie Wreckage, energon Sharkticon, robot masters Starscream and Mirage, and energon Grimlock and swoop (thanks!)

From ebay: crystal henkei/classics Optimus and Rodimus (I thought I had missed out on this for good when Robot Kingdom sold out, but I saw this on ebay with an option for an offer, so I offered about RK's price... and it was accepted!:D)

and from target today: Breacher (mighty fiddly transformation for a scout - vehicle mode is great. and even better, target's toy sale was still on so it was 20% off the price! :D)

Calm down, calm down :) I will be posting pics, most likely tomorrow which will include all new photos of my collection. It will be my last major update for quite a while as I have semi-retired from collecting (my pre-ordered Predaking will be my next and last acquisition for this year).

It definitely does come packaged in bot mode from the photos / reviews I have seen. And yes, I won't be opening him either... he's sleeping :p
