    Nice. Pity Goldie discontinued the line as some of the figures were excellent and low cost chibi interpretations of the G1 characters. My favourites were Shockwave, Magnus and Grimlock.

    I've been back in Japan for about a week, have been pretty busy (sorry Tetsuwan Convoy, I'll try and see you soon!) but so far I've managed to score...

    1x Tamashi Stage Act 5
    1x Tamashi Trident Stage (have been after one of these for ages)
    1x loose Takara Legends Armada Deluxe Starscream
    2x pre-owned Legends Scourges (the space-boat ones).

    Thought I'd share a pic of this figure which arrived yesterday, in case anyone was interested in seeing it:



    Update: The test shot didn't properly transform so I carefully took it apart, alongside my regular release copy of the figure, to discover an interesting anomaly about the test shot. I don't know how many of these were produced or if they all suffered from the same production problem, but the large cog on the inside of one of his legs has a slot which is meant to be slid into a notch on the inner edge of that leg. It looks like the metal bar holding the cog in the wheel was inserted through the legs and large cog, without checking if the wheel had been placed in the leg in a manner so that the notch slid into the slot. As a result, the auto-roll gimmick doesn't work on the proto.

    Ordinarily I'd be disappointed as an error like that, however given the nature of the piece, it feels more like the kind of toy error where the wrong figure is packed in the wrong card.

    Very happy indeed.

    Edit: Actually I take that back - I'm not just happy; I'm highly entertained.

    It turns out that this particular test shot was meant to be submitted for Quality Assurance and it wasn't even properly assembled. Ah Hasbro - oh how you make us laugh.

    A pair of loose ladies...Hasbro Generations Windblade (bought mostly so I can give the sword to Legends Slipstream) and Takara Strongarm and Sawtooth.
    I've got a Deluxe Strongarm already but the small one looks pretty impressive and the set was cheap so I figured why not?
