The Last Knight on DVD, cos I'm a sucker for punishment.

I find your lack of clairvoyance disturbing.
None of us can predict the future, mate. I bought TR Broadside online at full RRP (before shipping) because there was a time when it didn't look like that toy was coming out here. Now he's shelfwarming at cheap prices! But look at the big picture -- getting toys early usually saves time and money. There have been many more times where I've saved money by getting toys sooner rather than later than the number of times where it's turned out to be dearer.

but quite the interesting transformation for such a small figure. I do wish they were still doing the commander class size legends.

true, but I don't have them yet because they are part of a bigger pre-order.

The big box I sent myself from Singapore arrived after a week; so I present items purchased in Singapore during the week 25th-29th September

Finally picked up CW Computron at CSC (which is dying)


Found this MP Figure Stand at Robo Robo


Plenty on these at TRU Vivo City (super expensive as well)


Only found one set of these though at a smaller TRU store (also super expensive)


Been after Clampdown for a while, couldn't pass at this price


Expensive, wanted .. found them locally when I got back


Also expensive, wanted but haven't found locally


Didn't arrive locally, wanted, expensive


Oddly cheap ... more than double the price in Japan so glad I wanted


Again way cheaper than in Japan


Since the Takara Adventures line is dead, these had to come home

3A Age of Extinction Optimus Prime. Purchased online from Popcultcha on Tuesday, shipped out Wednesday and it arrived today. And the shipping was free. Very impressed.

This is a very good looking figure. He is the same height as MAS-01, although with a leaner physique. Still, he's a big bot and has very nice weathering and battle damage.

I'm looking forward to getting some more of these 3A action figures, especially TLK Megatron.

@Zippo, those TRU exclusives are super expensive here as well. $40 for the deluxes and $70 for the Infernocus.

Finally gave up on waiting for TLK deluxe wave 2 to show up locally. So made my first order from The Little Toy Company since they had them for an ok price

Could have saved money on shipping by going local pick up. But since I didn't know how to work that out I just opted to have it shipped

Placed my order yesterday morning. Arrived today.

So I can pretty much guarantee that now wave 2 will show up EVERYWHERE

Also grabbed a TR Seaspray since I was unsure we'd see him here either.

Very happy with my first experience with The Little Toy Company. Will likely shop with them again

and very happy with 2 out of 3 of the figures I bought.
Steelbane. Y U so floppy?
