This guy is a replacement for my Pink Variant Hasbro Transmetal Megatron, of which I'll give you 1 guess as to where it broke? :(

After the advice of Goki and after he had kindly brought his own Japanese TM Megatron to the last Parra Fair, I decided on picking this guy up as a replacement due to the better construction and colour scheme and I must say that I got a Damn! good deal on him too. :D
(I love this figure so much, thank you eBay Guy, Goki and Takara! :D:cool:)

I can just imagine the meeting that took place re: Takara Beast Wars Metals - Megatron's design...

Boss man: So...Megatron. He's a T-Rex, that's pretty cool. But how can we make him cooler?
Staff member 1: Let's make him fly
Staff member 2: Yeah, make him fly and have wheels. That's how he rolls!
Boss man: Awesome idea's guys. I also suggest we position his fists close to his chest in alt mode so he can still punch people in the face
*cheers all around*

I have been really lazy to update as I go along (maybe its cos there's just so much to do in HK... parties, functions, dinners, hoards of people invading my place, thank goodness no kids... etc). Anyway, here goes...

27 Jan 2011
Finally caved in and bought PE Rumble and Frenzy :confused:

28 Jan 2011
Been a really tough week, mentally, so wandered around and did some shopping therapy. Encore Skids (HKD150), Encore Starscream (HKD280), TF Generations 2009 mail away exclusive Skids and Screech (HKD499), Fables #100, GL Corps Prelude to Blackest Night (man, how can there still be Blackest Night stuff out there that I have not already bought!) and Evangelion Chronicles #6 - featuring Gendo Ikari and EVA-01

http://inlinethumb04.webshots.com/14403/2065154850100811158S500x500Q85.jpg (http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/photo/2065154850100811158yVXEOp)

Today
Massive haul of United figures - Soundwave x 02, Cyb Megatron, Cyb Optimus Prime, Cyb Bumblebee, Cyb Cliffjumper, Grapple, Jazz and Tracks. Generations Grapple. The OZ Formers calendar arrived too! Also, MP-09: Rodimus Prime with extras.

http://inlinethumb06.webshots.com/22917/2123292780100811158S500x500Q85.jpg (http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/photo/2123292780100811158dZgyOx) http://inlinethumb35.webshots.com/42530/2286835930100811158S500x500Q85.jpg (http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/photo/2286835930100811158RMdldU)

http://inlinethumb07.webshots.com/46918/2340818020100811158S500x500Q85.jpg (http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/photo/2340818020100811158RSDCvp) http://inlinethumb54.webshots.com/18805/2884857850100811158S500x500Q85.jpg (http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/photo/2884857850100811158gBIxuH)

MP-09 is huge!
I was told that if the MP-09 is distributed by Hasbro HK, there are 3 extras that US or Japanese distributors won't have:
1. a gold coin with Rodimus' face and a very neat packaging.
2. a large black display box with silver inlay for displaying MP-09
3. a large (really large) black paper bag with the Rodimus flame and Autobot symbol (this bag is meant to carry both MP-09 and the black display box, so its really large)

I don't know if ppl who ordered their MP-09 through HK sites will actually get these extras. In anycase, the black display case is so large that its bound to increase shipping costs for shipping overseas)

G1 and pre-Transformers

Pre-Transformers MC-05 Reflector giftset - toys are very minty C9.5 condition and tight joints. There are very significant molding differences compared with the TF version of Reflector.

Word. That or mods need to remove it ASAP.

Thanks to our good friend Whoopster I received G1 Euro Snare & a ridiculously minty G1 Cosmos! Really chuffed with both of them, and relieved to find out the original Snare head is perfect for my custom LSotW Snare! It really is a sweet head mold, didn't realise it even has the cool pointy teeth design on the grill like in the comic, very cool. :D

Note - if you already have a Cyclonus or HotRod/Rodimus - dont buy this set, Rodimus looks and is very plasticy and not worth it. Lucky it was only $150HKD (less than $20AUD):mad:

oOOOH zoNE vARIANTS! niICE hd!! Everyone has a lot of awesome hauls wow!! Oh and that Microx is bringing so much good memories HD. Good thing I still got my MIcrox with me ( very first Transforming robot toys I have) but sadly the metal peg that holds the robot arms for pre Spyglass got broke while I was trying to transform it 4 years ago while packing it so I can ship it with me here(how ironic:(). Thus they shall forever be stuck in Camera mode.... btw how muchy did the Generations 2010 book cost pls?

@Hursty: Loving that TM megs - now I see the difference the Jap version has over the Hasbro breakalot version

@UltrMAgnus: NIce HAUL man!!

@ Double D: is that Snare head just place on top or is it fixed on? looks like it was tailored for it ei? Awesome!

@Mentok: nice to see your haul finally arrived. NIce!! oh and yeah address blacking out is just us ( your co-members) want to look after each other so that nobody hassles you by knowing who you are and where you live unintentionally.... for safety precautions:p

Got it for a steal off the b/s/t forum on tfw2005. I really want CC as well but looking at the quality(lack of) of this KO I'm gonna have to fork out for the authentic..... I might get the prime armour KO but CC deserves the real deal.

Yeah mate it's just perched on top (after folding back the white piece where Terradive's normal head sits). It'll look even better once the grill is painted gold too! It really is a perfect fit so unlike Guzzle this will be a pretty straight forward repaint with just a bit of remolding on the plane nose. Easy peazy. :D

GARBOIL: Welcome to The Correctional Centre.

NUT CONVOY: Your gaol is in a volcano?

GARBOIL: Yeah, it crashed here four million years ago.

NUT CONVOY: Really?

GARBOIL: No, over-run, we built it here. We find that the concept of not-being-scalded-by-boiling-hot-lava-every-day is a great incentive for convicts to reform and become constructive members of society. Hey boss.

PROWL: Welcome back, Detective Sergeant.

NUT CONVOY: ZOMG, Garboil... your boss is Robocop!

PROWL: Ha ha. Greetings, Nut Convoy. I hear you have the makings of a future policeman.

NUT CONVOY: I want to be an astronaut.

BURNING CONVOY: And I want to speak to my lawyer.

GARBOIL: I think someone wants a bit more lava.

BURNING CONVOY: Dude, I'm already on fire, what's a bit of lava going to do?

GARBOIL: Sigh. Fine, your lawyer's already here to see you anyway.

NUT CONVOY: Hi Voltron!

MAGNABOSS: Oily pit...

NUT CONVOY: I haven't seen you since you threatened to kill me right after I got the matrix.

MAGNABOSS: Ahem. Um... that isn't quite as bad as it sounds.

NUT CONVOY: Sure it is. Garboil, remember what Deathsaurus said?

GARBOIL: Nutso, my wife is not a slu...

NUT CONVOY: Not that.

GARBOIL: That we were ignoring the elephant in the room?

NUT CONVOY: The one with two long, sharp, curved objects.

GARBOIL: Tusks! Plus Magnaboss had motive, means and opportunity.

MAGNABOSS: I'm going to kill you, Lugnut!

NUT CONVOY: Motive, means, opportunity and he really likes killing people.

Got MP Rodimus today. haven't got time to transform it. But first impression: QC is not very good especially for a high end figure. articulation is great. visor gimmick is not well designed and mine is really loose to a point that it sometimes automatically flips down. I heard that the second batch would be better QC wise.

Yep - getting them now before they become even more popular. Especially with Perceptor, Warpath, Jazz, Tracks etc coming out they are so so so popular that I was worried they would sell out now :)

Curious, how would you rate the quality of the KO?

very low.

I dont have the FP authentic but the KO I got has loose hinges, visible stress marks and a partly snapped hinge for the gun and a popped "rivet" on the torso. Also there was the white fume residue left over from superglue use on one piece.

Oh and the inside piece of one of the shoulder stacks has the piece from the opposite shoulder by mistake. Normally the piece slides over NP's true shoulder and theres a raised portion that slots into the screw recess on the back but since the part is from the wrong shoulder the raised portion faces the front where theres no plug and is only held in place by the plastics gripping action rather than fixed in position.

Now mine was Second hand so alot of this could be the result of use rather than out of the box QC...... Im still very happy with the kit overall and knowing i could never have justified the Authentic at $250-$300 ish i can deal with these faults as the trade off but im not as picky as most other fans seem to be about such things......

The fig still looks flawlessly Boss in both modes but when switching its obvious its a KO..... I'll probably get the Prime armor as KO but since City Commander is the flagship version I''l have to get the proper FP one for him.

This book is amazing! and is highly recommended to anyone who is a fan of G1, cartoons or character art in general. ;):D:cool:

Beachcomber is a spare and hence is available to any reasonable offers. :)
Transforming Steam Locos, like Deego, rule! and he is actually different to the one I already have which is a bonus. :D
My Minicon army is slowly growing and I am very pleased to add the Decepticon Dark Saber to their ranks. ;):cool:

My arrivals from the past couple of weeks, after a very lean couple of months:

http://i475.photobucket.com/albums/rr118/gpls12/BILD2013.jpg

RTS Legends Prime, Megatron and Starscream - thanks to Big W
WSTFs Soundwave (and Ravage - not pictured), Hot Rod and G1 Prime's trailer - thanks to jimoinj

I'm really impressed with the quality of Legends Megatron! If only some 3rd Party made a stock, sight and silencer extension add-ons for him....

Hot Rod and Soundwave are what I expected, Hot Rod even comes with his dual pistols (not pictured though)

And to the bigger stuff:

http://i475.photobucket.com/albums/rr118/gpls12/BILD2033.jpg

Generations Red Alert (my Henkei version can now stay sealed, after long periods of temptation to be released from his plastic prison) - from eBay

RTS Voyagers Lugnut and Grapple - from my local Target :)

RTS Deluxe Jazz, Tracks, Mindset and Fall(Out)Back - from Walmart via eBay (for $50 USD + postage) :eek::cool:

I'm stuck on what to open first! Jazz, Tracks or Lugnut?? My dilemma for the next day or so :p

And then you walk all the way down to the far end of the shopping centre, and voila you are there.

If you catch the 745 Bus, then change to the 750 (or catch the 751/52 into Blacktown and catch 750 or 754 bus) that'll get you there too.

Some of the usuals that people have been getting too, picked them up at Big W last week.

Passed on RTS Bumblebee - have way too many figures in that mould -> Classics Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Henkei Bumblebee, Bugbite, Bumblebee 3-pack. That makes 5 figures in that same mould. :rolleyes:

My last day in Japan and at the airport now. Just got no Internet connectivity throughout (not that I actively sought it put though). Got some good acquisitions of rare vintage paraphenaliabut not too many toys.

1azrael and liege, apologies guys, the overlords I saw this time round is way way too expensive - each. MIB Overlord (c9+, quite flawless condition and complete with everything) is in the 60,000 to 80,000yen region. Didn't think you guys would be interested at that price, so didn't get them. Didn't see any loose ones or junk box but cheap ones. My guess is that overlords here are more in parity with market prices now, unlike the last time i was here when theywerehalfthe market price.... All about timing i guess. :(

Im living in HK at the moment, eventually will head back to Aus, probably when my collection is bullet proof :)

If you are a serious toy collector, then visit Singapore and Hong Kong at least once a year. The dollar is so good (not for me though) and airfares are cheap. One big haul in a weekend will make up for dribs and drabs throughout the year.

Completely agree with UM there. And if HK and SG are not enough, one can always fly to Tokyo over the weekend for less time and money than it costs to fly from Sydney to Perth/Darwin (as an example).

Hasbro items are also widely available here (but some pieces are strangely not seen), but with the Takara versions also widely available and at roughly the same price, there is very little reason to go for the Hasbro ones if one can wait a month or 2.

***

UM, I'm just back from Tokyo/Hokkaido, but got your little note about meeting up. Let's aim for that over the course of this week or next if you are free?

***

PS: Strange as it sounds, Hokkaido was amazing for G1 vintage TFs... amongst other good stuff, I got another Goodbye Convoy giftset is very near C9 condition with near complete paperworks... woot! Cost me less than what it would cost to get vintage C9 versions of Prime, Mirage and Red Alert on eBay...

Cool! I'm doing a Mong Kok, Ya Mai Tei run this Friday afterwork - feel free to join! Getting something for a few members

Another good thing which could be the cheapest option is an airasia or jetstar flight to Singapore.

Go to Singapore and make sure u get to go to the collector fair every weekend at China Square Central.

Things are generally the same price as Aus in Sing Dollars (which is 30-35% less than Aussie). Everything will be a 35% off sale and you will find so much stuff just there. Then go to all the other hobby shops over a day or two and you are laughing.

Eventually when I leave HK, I will probably come back 1-2 times a year and buy all my toys then. So much easier and less stress...

Being from SG myself, I completely agree with what you said.

I'm glad that you are helping members get stuff. It's something I'd really like to do (but have not offered yet) because my work hours are erratic and the missus really wouldn't be too happy if I spend my spare time buying and packing and sending stuff rather than with her. :(

I'm going on a run to Yau Ma Tei tonight because the shop owner there has reserved some rare G1 items for me. Just want to pick them up fast. As he usually says, 'if these things ever see the light of a display cabinate, they will be snapped up faster than a hungry dog's breakfast'.

I will slowly be updating the things I picked up from Tokyo/Hokkaido here over the next few days. I will be doing it bit by bit so that I can focus on each day's acquisitions more.

7 Feb 2011 - Day 1 - Tokyo - Nakano
- TV Artbook #69
- C-341: Greasepit MISB
- C-342: Airwave MIB, unused toys, stickers and paperworks
- C-343: Hot House MIB, unused toys, stickers and paperworks
- C-344: Iron Works MISB

Really happy to be able to grab all 4 MM mini bases at one go. Such a good feeling. The highlight today though, has to be the TV Artbook. The box art shots in the book are simply amazing and at a resolution and size that is much better than the art on the actual boxes of the respective toys themselves.

Cos the boxes just say "Fire Base," "Gasoline Base," "Build Base" and "Airport Base" -- which is fine for the Micromaster Stations themselves, but I hope the robots themselves have individual names. :/ (might check my TF Gen. book when I get home)

Just preordered a Wave 4 case of Generations Series 4- Warpath, WheelJack, Thundercracker, Kup and Scourge because I don't want to miss out on those guys. I will most likely share the love and put the extras up for sale but I'm not making any guarantees (Or sale threads) until I have them in my hands.
and I saved about $25 bucks in the deal too, so I might be sold on the whole preordering thing.

Other than one that I saw (and bought) in Tokyo in Jan 2010, I have never came across another device label Ravage in either AU, SG, HK or Japan in the intervening time.

That does not mean its rare though, it may just mean that I have not seen it again.

I will slowly be updating the things I picked up from Tokyo/Hokkaido here over the next few days. I will be doing it bit by bit so that I can focus on each day's acquisitions more.

7 Feb 2011 - Day 1 - Tokyo - Nakano
- TV Artbook #69
- C-341: Greasepit MISB
- C-342: Airwave MIB, unused toys, stickers and paperworks
- C-343: Hot House MIB, unused toys, stickers and paperworks
- C-344: Iron Works MISB

Really happy to be able to grab all 4 MM mini bases at one go. Such a good feeling. The highlight today though, has to be the TV Artbook. The box art shots in the book are simply amazing and at a resolution and size that is much better than the art on the actual boxes of the respective toys themselves.

8 Feb 2011 - Day 2 - Tokyo - Akihabara

Got lots of stuff on this day. No toys, but lots of vintage Transformers books and very interestingly, a vintage Transformers T-shirt in a very nice box (almost missed this one cos it was in a section far away from Transformers).

Not really going to name them cos I wouldn't know what to call them...

My Tokyo update continues...

10 Feb 2011 - Day 2 - Tokyo - (back to) Nakano

I was seriously considering getting the VSZ set at Nakano, so I went back there today to check it out. As it seems, the VSZ set was not good enough (to me), so I decided to pass. However, I did manage to pick up some good stuff...

- C-47: Grapple MIB, very minty and unused
- C-83: Sandstorm MIB, C9.5, untouched, unused, complete paperworks, unapplied sticker sheet
- eHobby recoloured Ravage and Laserbeak MISB
- (the real highlight of the day) Headmasters poker cards, unused and still attached as one piece. This is something I have never seen before and the quality is great.
