Title: The small "Toy" scores thread
Post by: EngineerMike on January 25, 2014, 12:26:14 AM
So I don't know if I am allowed to start this or not, because its a web forum devoted to video games, but it occurs to me that many of my fellow RFGenner's are into toys. Many of us (myself included) like showing off what we get in our travels. Whether it be He-man, TMNT, Transformers, GI Joes,etc etc or even NERF, I figured rather than post in the small scores thread which is mostly intended for video game scores, I would start a new thread for our toys. So without further ado (this could be the beginning of a very short lived thread but) here are my latest scores:

i don't have anything to add because i don't collect toys, but there are some people who would definitely enjoy this thread around here!

Oh no? What about that Micro Machines DHL cargo plane you got for Christmas?  ;D

There are similar threads, such as "What Books Have You Purchased Recently," and "What DVDs Have You Purchased Recently," located in the Media Room section, so it's not like there aren't any precedents around here.

Myself, if I find a non-vidya score I wanna show off, I'll bring it up and show it off at the end of my small scores post. That way, anyone who doesn't care about my latest graphing-calculator or Nerf gun hauls can skip it and scroll down to the next post.

Fair enough Zag. I just figured (after seeing those TMNT figures posted alone in the Small Scores Thread) that us toy lovers can have a separate area to post stuff. My collecting pretty much revolves around Games, Action Figures and Comic Books

Managed to bang off some more turtles for my collection today:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/IMG_11791_zps19f23d9c.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/IMG_11791_zps19f23d9c.jpg.html)

Also decided, since every vehicle I drive usually has a plush co-pilot, and my current vehicle still didn't have a dash buddy, what better than my favorite Mario Bro:

Now I have all 4 turtles and Splinter. Just need that damn elusive Rat King figure.

I've managed to resist the urge to add to my Nerf gun collection for a few months now.

My Optimus Prime collection, however, is another story; I grabbed this from a Goodwill earlier today for $0.79:

W00t! Cyber Sword FTW! With lights, sounds, and the only true voice of the Autobots' main man!


Now when are they finally gonna put out a Nerf N-Strike dart-shooting version of G1 Optie's blaster rifle?

(http://www.charleswallacestudios.com/ebay/images/primes-gun.jpg)

What's the hold-up, Hasbro? You allergic to money? Or are you starting to feel bad for the sweat shop workers who manufacture your goods? Just tell 'em that, if they don't wanna see their weekly five-minute break get cut down to two minutes, they better get their asses in gear! Oh, and tell 'em to lighten up on the lead-based paint...

As long as they didn't put any orange on it, I would TOTALLY buy an Optimus Nerf gun!

Probably fifty-fifty that they will.

In any case, Hasbro will likely give it the same red-blue-pewter color scheme they've given their other Optie role-play weapon releases.

And yes, I do own a Cyber Blaster and Battle Rig Blaster.

My brother has been on a little spending binge since it's tax season.  I am still waiting on mine lol  But today his big package came in the mail. 

A huge Lego Fan he is for sure...but he's an even bigger Simpsons fan so put both together he just had to have it and ordered it directly from Lego because others were going for $300 or more a piece while yes it was on backorder he got it today.

(http://i.imgur.com/ylofXEM.jpg)

Just look at him pinning over it..he is building it now as we speak..its 2523 pieces of joy for him. He did pick up some game related stuff so check the small scores thread for that.  Nothing as fantastic as his Lego but still.

Title: Re: The small "Toy" scores thread
Post by: GamerNick on February 15, 2014, 02:06:34 PM
It's quite an amazing set and a decent price tag from what I understand.  You can order it on lego.com :-)  Personally I'd rather have one of those Castle Greyskulls haha but the Simpson Lego is pretty sweet! Especially when my brother is both a huge Lego fan has been since the late 80's and still has all of his sets and manuals.

I had a double of the M.O.U.S.E.R.S. so I convinced my buddy to trade me for one of these guys that I didn't have yet:

Nice! I haven't got my hands on any of the recent turtles series stuff. I have all but Mikey in the original turtle releases new sealed...but it's going to cost a bit to get a Michaelangelo.  But I have other original series sealed..I'll post pics eventually but they are in storage among other toys :-) Keep up the awesome work!

On the subject of Lego......"Everything is Awesome!" :

Wiley Fusebot, Panda Guy, Bad Cop, Emmett, Abraham Lincoln, Gail the Construction Worker, Taco Tuesday Guy. So far no doubles, but I have collected enough minifigs to know that, that won't last.

Didn't have too much interest in the Lego movie minifigure wave. But then I watched the movie.

Picked this nice little Star Trek Micro Machines set up today for $5.00 at a local store.  It's in pretty nice shape was a little dusty but cleaned it up good.  I had all of these when I was a kid except for the DS9 stuff (oh well). Also all of mine are out of the box and my Dad has all of these except the DS9 stuff still sealed in their packages, but I couldn't pass up on it. 

The other thing I got was Hawkman from the DC Super Heroes Series from the '88-'90 series I have all but the alternate version of the Flash Figure to make a complete set.

Picked me up a sealed boxed A-10 model for $0.99.

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/a10_zpsd274d97a.jpg)

Why the A-10, you ask?

Oh, only because IT'S THE MOST AWESOME MILITARY AIRCRAFT EVER! AND IF YOU THINK OTHERWISE, YOU SHOULD JUST GO BACK TO THE SOVIET UNION WHERE YOU BELONG, YOU TERRORIST-LOVING COMMIE SCUZZBUCKET! U-S-A! U-S-A! WHOOOO!!!  :guncannon:

Post by: EngineerMike on March 02, 2014, 02:29:34 PM
The A-10 is definitely an awesome piece of military hardware. I have the GI Joe Rattler plane based on this design, only Gi Joe got a little fantasy-like with the tilting VTOL wings. The scene hanging in the corner of my toy room (above GI Joe HQ):

Super stoked to have gotten the President Business and Where's my Pants Guy Lego minifigs. Also got a double of the hard hat Emmet figure but graciously gave him to Crabmasters appreciative little boy. Managed to find some Marvel Universe figs I didn't yet have as well. The team of Cloak and Dagger (which annoyingly, is printed as Marvel Knights on the packaging), Baron Zemo (which I passed on months ago and hadn't seen til yesterday) and a member of my countries version of the X-Men (Alpha Flight) Aurora. Say what you want about Alpha Flight, but they had interesting members. Like Aurora here, who had dual personalities, and a not-so-ambiguous gay brother (that I need to get for my collection)

I am by no means an expert on toy grades, but I do know my comics and toys well enough to "roughly" determine the grades. MLC is a LOT harder to determine than MOC, but a few factors will raise or lower grades of loose figures.

Hey now,

Picked up a set of four carded TMNT mini-figures earlier today:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/TMNTScore3-11-2014_zps8080b3c6.jpg)

The backing cards are in surprisingly good condition, seeing as how they were packed in a Savers grab bag. Sadly, Donatello's card has a couple staple holes through it around the hang-hook notch.

And, even though it's not a toy in the traditional sense, I decided to show my latest HP financial calculator pick-up just to see if a certain someone ever looks at this thread.  ;)


Title: Re: The small "Toy" scores thread
Post by: EngineerMike on March 17, 2014, 09:49:49 PM
Those TMNT figures are interesting. They look like they came out during the 200X cartoon series, but are definitely a nod to the vintage line.

My brother picked up a few Monopoly's for his collection and Mass Effect Risk all three were purchased from Go! Calendars and Toys which is usually a seasonal place which closes today and will reopen in November.  He also picked up a Not For Resale Demo Tape of Great Mouse Detective (it's actually the full movie).  Also picked up a sealed copy of Captain America the 1992 movie on Blu-Ray and Man in the Iron Mask I got from HPB for $1.00.

Got more TMNT figures. Pretty much have the whole line now except for a few figures (The key figure I'm missing is Shredder).

For those that don't watch the new series, Dogpound and Fishface are (kinda) the Beebop and Rocksteady of the new series, but way more rad. My friends wife picked me up April from south of the border, as I have never been able to find her locally, making her even more of a chase than Rat King.

Finally two months after paying for it I finally got my two box sets from Shout! in mail.  Guess they were waiting for Transformers to ship Beetlejuice. The litograph is offered to the first 150 customers who pre-order or purchase the Complete series.

Hey not really a score except for the few I showed off earlier..but they are past scores toy related but video game titled related.  Here are the board/card games we currently own video game title related..with the exception of E.T. had to post those because they are tied into probably one of the worst video game of all time.

Got me another Kraang

I grabbed this the other day for my gameroom. I like the look of it, but it is quite an unbalanced piece when it comes to standing alone. I passed up on an old skool Kraang at a toy show a few weeks ago. I'm kicking myself for that move.

Found this lego set (6006? I believe) for 2.49 at a goodwill. It is complete minus 3-4 common bricks, had the manual too. Unfortunately I dont collect legos, except for marvel/dc minifigs.

If someone wanted to trade some games or something for it I would be down.

Good score MrWunderful. That set is actually #6242. I would be interested but, A) I have no games to trade and B) I only collect Lego sets that fit into a modern day setting. I love my CITY Lego most of all. I will post a pic of my toy room eventually.

Dear toy guys,

My apologies for the fact that I'm about to bomb this thread with pics of toys I already had, so they aren't really scores but I wanted you guys to see them, let me know if I have anything good, and let me know if you want them in trade for games I want. Apologies to Mike and others as I am not interested in shipping to Canada. Truly I don't know what I want to do with this crap, just wanted to throw it all out there. Thanks for looking and thanks in advance for the info on this collection.

Carded Joes!? This Canadian is sad to not be able to have the opportunity of acquiring that sealed Swampfire or Despoiler. And MOC MOTU Orko and King Hiss? On the Ebay market, you are easily sitting on well over $1000 worth of toys there.

I'm sorry Mike, I really didn't mean to come in to your thread and then tease you with my stuff. If you want, I can PM you when they go on ebay (which may be as soon as tonight) since I do the global shipping option through ebay.

If you were me, would you do lots within each franchise or sell each piece individually?


Title: Re: The small "Toy" scores thread
Post by: EngineerMike on April 28, 2014, 09:40:30 PM
For the joes, transformers and He-man stuff i would have listed individually. The batman stuff i would do as a lot.

Please satisfy my curiosity and send me a link ASAP when you list the Gi Joe stuff

My package from singlebanana came today. Again, I am very happy with the condition of the GI Joes and have also included another score that is not toy related, but didn't feel like starting a new thread. So without further ado:

Here we have the Gi Joe team on the left consisting of (from top to bottom): Lt.Falcon, Doc, Dusty, Outback, Alpine and Low-Light. They are fighting a Cobra team of (from top to bottom) Scrap-Iron, Torch, Zarana, Ripper, and Buzzer. The prize in the middle is: The Uncanny X-Men #121 (May 1979) which is the first full appearance of the Marvel Canadian super-hero team, ALPHA FLIGHT!!! Alright, let the Alpha Flight jokes start.....

I had some of those Simpsons figures in my grubby paws the other day, but put them back. It's only a matter of time, before I start snapping these up, although I prefer "regular" type minifigs when they do a wave.

Title: Re: The small "Toy" scores thread
Post by: Boshamp on June 15, 2014, 12:48:35 PM
@EngineerMike: So it started in the 1950's as a box of body parts you would buy and shove into actual potatoes, shortly after being released, people were complaining about finding moldy potato heads all over their homes, so Hasbro went with plastic bodies. It was at that time released as a plastic potato head with a separate plastic body, both of which you could push the limbs into. Choking hazards forced them to again re-think the toy, leading to what you see here, which was released in the early 70's if I remember correctly. For the first time, it was released as a single potato with attachable parts. The pegs on the parts were measured to prevent choking, so the eyes were given super long pegs, and the other parts were increased in size overall.

Cool piece of history, Boshamp. Actual potatoes? very amusing. I never owned a Mr. Potato Head but had friends or other kids I knew who owned them.

This was the original, where you see Styrofoam in the box would be where you would use an actual potato during play. As you can see on the left, although it was marketed for use with potatoes since they were cheap and easy to obtain, you could use an onion, yam, or really any veggie sturdy enough to hold the pieces in place.

That was the kind I had as a toddler back in the late '70s. I apparently broke the pipe for it, which gave birth to a corny family in-joke that has endured to this day.

Speaking of kiddie stuff: calculators aren't the only Texas Instruments products I snap up at every opportunity:

Um... no, not really. After witnessing the appalling travesties that were Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon, I don't have much faith in Part 4 being all that great. Or even halfway decent for that matter. I must admit, however, that my reaction to the trailers and spots for Age of Extinction I saw on YouTube was, "Wow, this one looks like it won't be nearly as sh*tty as the last two." So maybe there's some hope after all.

SUPER KAWAII DESU HAPPY FUN TIME!!!
Wait a minute. Do I see... Optimus nipples?

Oh, didn't you know? That's a prototype tie-in toy for the fifth TransFormers movie, which will be directed by Joel Schumacher.

BTW If you think that's provocative, check out this screenshot from Autobots Gone Wild:

WHAT'S THIS?! You had several opportunities to pick up one of those bad boys, but never did?!  :grrr: And you call yourself a TransFormers fan?! You phoney fair-weather types make me sick! How do you even sleep at night with the shame you bear every single minute of your life?!  :nono:

20th Anniversary Master Piece Optimus Prime/Convoy is only the greatest TransFormer toy ever made! Well, okay, the second-greatest behind the original G1 Optimus Prime toy! Especially the Japanese release with the longer stacks, more chromed bits, and other cool stuff like a certain super-mega-awesome Japan-exclusive accessory! You know what: as soon as I get my home internet service back up in a couple days, I'm gonna show you just what you missed out on, just to make you feel even more guilty than you do right now... and deservedly so.

Until then: hugs and kisses!

Impressive debate on the defense of ownership for Masterpiece Optimus Prime. I have always defended that I need to complete my G1 collection first, before jumping into those bigger MP versions. My buddy was all psyched when I pointed out the new TransFans 3rd-party MP Dinobot Slag. He asked me if I was going to grab it. I have a really HARD time spending $200 on a non-Takara TF, especially when I don't own any of the G1 Dinobots. As for Optimus, I could have gotten a Toys R' Us version or a Walmart version. I have always held more desire to own the Masterpiece Megatron though. That way I could physically compare the scale of Megatron in P-38 mode between his G1, MP, and an actual Walther P-38.


Title: Re: The small "Toy" scores thread
Post by: Zagnorch on June 26, 2014, 07:25:10 PM
Hello again,

I considered grabbing the MP Megatron, but I didn't really dig the thin legs in robot mode. Otherwise, he looks reasonably solid. Besides, collecting just Optimus stuff is enough of a financial burden.

It also didn't help that, due to U.S. federal law making it illegal to distribute or sell realistic-looking toy guns, had I bought it, the seller would have been forced to super-glue an orange safety tip plug into the end of the barrel.  Thanks, but no thanks...

ANYhoo, you know what time it is? It's PRIME TIME of course! Which I can now keep better track of with this clock and transformable wristwatch combo I grabbed a few days ago:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/optipack4_zps89c5b2fe.jpg)


...aaaaand the Voyager-class "evasion mode" version that transforms into the G1-style non-flamey cab-over rig that us children-of-the-80s all know and love!

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/optipack5_zpsa7059313.jpg)


 I'm guessing the appearance of cab-over Optiumus was the result of Michael Bay finally caving to the incessant browbeating from bitchy purist fans who wanted to see more of the G1-style designs in the live-action flicks. I mean, they could've focused their collective anger at the awful scripts of the last two movies more than the robot designs, but where's the fun in that? Way to keep your priorities in order, fanbase...  ::)

On another note: I'll likely catch TransFormers 4 some time next week. Sadly, I don't have very high expectations; if it ends up not being as crappy as Revenge of the Fallen or Dark of the Moon, I'll be somewhat happy... I guess. :(

All right, enough boring nonsense; I'll leave y'all to your inadequate and inferior G.I. Joes, Masters of the Universe, and Ninja Turtles...   :P

That trailer is truly a sight to behold. Thats MP-01? Not MP-10? Either way, a nice representation of a 1980 Freightliner COE.

I am never against spending a half hour or so, doing something I found impossible at age 5, so I grabbed these from Walmart yesterday:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/B51B03D0-4ABF-47AE-99AA-8F00229B939A_zpsfb4hfvex.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/B51B03D0-4ABF-47AE-99AA-8F00229B939A_zpsfb4hfvex.jpg.html)

I wanted the Guardians of the Galaxy set mostly for the Groot and Rocket Raccoon minifigs.

I was more stoked to get this set though:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/8A7CE61B-9CF7-4B7B-A199-84E20B24264A_zpspttmkrr5.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/8A7CE61B-9CF7-4B7B-A199-84E20B24264A_zpspttmkrr5.jpg.html)

Photobomb courtesy of Francine. This set rocks. I love the pink and purple Sentinel. Blackbird AKA X-Jet is pretty decent but I felt I could have been done a little better. Its lack of any kind of landing gear kinda bugs me.

Play!:

That trailer is truly a sight to behold. Thats MP-01? Not MP-10? Either way, a nice representation of a 1980 Freightliner COE.

It's MP-1 with a separately-packaged trailer. They did release both together as a "Perfect Convoy" set, designated MP-4. The trailer is the 2nd-edition; the 1st edition was styled after the G1 'toon as opposed to the original G1 toy. I preferred the look of the 2nd edition version, so that's the one I picked up.

Sadly, I didn't find out about the MP-10 until well after it was released, and now it's too far out of my budget. Otherwise, I'd have definitely added it to my menagerie.

Speaking of which: I picked up a new mini-Optie for the big guy to build.

They seem to re-release it every few years, particularly in Japan. The japanese rereleases, although pricier, are preferable, as they have the long smoke stacks and still have die-cast metal in 'em.

Well when you finally do upgrade... can I have your old one?

The Nerf N-Strike Elite Strongarm is a worthy successor to the Maverick. They retail new for $12-$15, but it's been out long enough that you could find one at a thrift or yard sale for a couple bucks. If you do, for Eon's sake GRAB IT. Well, make sure it works first...

Found these at TRU while looking for games. I figured I could get the entire set of 4 all at once for around 8 bucks, so I went for it. Even though I haven't been a part of WoW for several years, I still think these look pretty cool.

Found this in a Savers "Grab bag" with a couple travel board games. It has never been played with, but the mini Donatello is missing. The stickers weren't even put on the pieces.

Nearest TRU is a half-hour away. I'll check if I get in that area.

ALSO I think after I complete my Saturn Set I am going to try and pick up the Star Trek TNG Figures and make a set..any thoughts?

Probably an easier goal than other toylines. I would assume you want to resume the collection with more carded figures? I'm not overly familiar with the values of the ST:TNG figures, but I doubt there are many that are expensive.

Yeah carded only...I haven't come across any that are two expensive and I can get quite a few at a couple toy stores here in the area

Yeah, I actually pre-ordered that "footlocker" set before it came out and boy, did it deliver! I really like how they incorporated all of the discs, but also how they left a jewel case tray open for The Movie since it  wasn't included.

From a surprise source, the Cobra Terror Drome.  And since I don't collect G.I. Joes anymore, it's up FS/FT.  Send offers for what you think it's worth.  I'm open to cash or games.  It's big, so be prepared to pay for a large shipping box.

There is some discoloration and it needs to be cleaned, but most of the pieces seem to be there.  The jet looks like it became a chew toy, unfortunately.  And there are few panels that have broken hinges.  But damn!  I would have loved this thing when I was a kid.

A childhood fave of mine as well; it was a double-whammy for a Transformers/Robotech fan such as myself. I played with that bad boy 'til he literally fell apart and the white plastic parts had yellowed. He had a pretty good amount of die-cast metal at a time when toys started the transition to all plastic. One of the most poseable TransFormers of its era, too, with solid ratcheting *click-click-click* joints in the knees, hips, and shoulders.

Kre-O isn't that bad, but it sure as hell does not compare to the far superior Lego.

Still kind of a cool set though, for the $25 it cost me. Has a nifty little light-up feature as well:

I sincerely think that's a misnomer.  As each unit is different, it's lifespan is different.  If you love your console and are not rough with it I think it will last the same length of time no matter what you do with it.  Only play games or watch movies too.  I'm still using the same original PS3 I got back in 2009 with no issues and I play PS3, PS1, DVD and Blu-rays in it.

Funny the subject of Blu-Ray should be brought up, 'cuz I was thinking of buying a copy of a certain movie* after discovering this bad boy at the haunted Toys "R" Us:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/robofig1_zpsfbd76751.jpg)
*Just the first movie. And the second one... on closeout.


(http://www.wearysloth.com/Gallery/ActorsN/38485-16148.jpg)
"I bought that for ($1 x 24.99)1.0875!"


Well he sure can't shoot would-be rapists in the beanbag while trapped in that plastic prison, so...


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/robofig2_zpsd2db8f1a.jpg)


Yeah, that's right: unlike some sociopathic freaks on this site I could mention, I like to free my toys from their boxes and display 'em loose, as they were meant to be displayed. And if you don't like it, then...


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OYXlFJztow


Oh yeah, that's the stuff:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/robocopaf3_zps189461c5.jpg)


Oh, and you gotta check out this awesome action feature-- just push the switch on the back of Robo's right thigh:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/robofig5_zps46e080a0.jpg)


Aaaaand...


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/robofig6_zps67d0cb61.jpg)


So, whattaya think, Emil?


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6F6u5TIUbI


If only the MacFarlane action figure had had that feature back in the day. And I'm still waiting on the removable helmet. However, the guys at NECA did a pretty good sculpt of the nostrils:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/robofig7_zps17d2a9e2.jpg)
Look closely at the left nostril, and you'll make out a miniscule, finely detailed booger.


Now you're probably wondering what I did with the jetpack and cannon-arm attachment accessories. Well, I put 'em right where they belong:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/robocopaf4_zpsdd283674.jpg)


I'll be damned if I'm gonna hold onto anything that reminds me of RoboCop 3.  >:(

Now when are they gonna come around to making a Clarence Boddicker action figure? Talk about a criminal act...  :(

Last year or so, I broke a toy collecting vow I had made to myself. No Masterpiece Transformers. Don't get me wrong, I thought that these "supersized" but faithful recreations of their G1 counterparts, were simply amazing. But at anywhere from $100-200, I felt that this toyline was too costly, and also too large to display in my already bursting toy collection. Then last year Toys R us did this:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/6247E04E-F0A4-4EE3-87B4-13B1F11DFE19_zpsch0tmopx.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/6247E04E-F0A4-4EE3-87B4-13B1F11DFE19_zpsch0tmopx.jpg.html)

At $150 how could I resist? Masterpiece Soundwave and every Masterpiece  tape character from 1984? It was a no brainer purchase. Oh, and that one is sealed Zag. I regret not getting two at the time, but a guy cant always afford that.

Flash forward to this year when, my buddy who also collects, was on vacation and toy hunting for me. He found the Masterpiece Grimlock for me but when reporting that they were on sale for $80 instead of the usual $100, I splurged and got two. Which made me happy cause it meant opening one.

A couple weeks ago, I was on Toys R Us website and found another Masterpiece to splurge on. Yesterday they arrived:

PROWL!!!!!

Newtralizer is one my my favorite characters in the new series. Funny that he is voiced by Danny Trejo.

Slash is cool too, and voiced by Corey Feldman! His toy scale is wrong though, compared to the animated version.

Mutagen Man was just one I had been putting off getting for awhile.

That is actually a pretty sweet handheld. I like the neon green scheme.

It looks like the one I used to own... where the d-pad totally sucked balls. I really had to mash that thing to get ol' Paccy to turn corners. You'd have to go back to the 2600 to come up with a worse rendition of this all-time classic. Downright awful.

Needless to say, I sure hope it's a later and much improved version than the one I got...

At $150 how could I resist? Masterpiece Soundwave and every Masterpiece  tape character from 1984? It was a no brainer purchase. Oh, and that one is sealed Zag. I regret not getting two at the time, but a guy cant always afford that.

Flash forward to this year when, my buddy who also collects, was on vacation and toy hunting for me. He found the Masterpiece Grimlock for me but when reporting that they were on sale for $80 instead of the usual $100, I splurged and got two. Which made me happy cause it meant opening one.

A couple weeks ago, I was on Toys R Us website and found another Masterpiece to splurge on. Yesterday they arrived:

PROWL!!!!!
(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/00B7C0DA-A21A-420D-83BF-A71A87DF3029_zpsanf9cgfq.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/00B7C0DA-A21A-420D-83BF-A71A87DF3029_zpsanf9cgfq.jpg.html)

Of course two, so one could be opened!

Car mode:

G1 & Masterpiece at the feet of the mighty Grimlock:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/31712B5F-7FDC-46B6-84AA-02531BE53909_zpsmgzbrda7.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/31712B5F-7FDC-46B6-84AA-02531BE53909_zpsmgzbrda7.jpg.html)



Oh wow, how did I miss this? Masterpiece Prowl is reminiscent of the Alternators / Binaltech line, which came out right after the original Master Piece Optimus Prime, and were roughly to scale with the Master Piece line. Sadly, while the Japanese Binaltech versions sported die-cast metal, the Western-release Alternators were almost all plastic, save for the screws and bolts holding things together. None the less, they were a challenge to transform, even with the help of the instruction sheet.

Met a guy slowly moving to my city from B.C.'s lower mainland and he has a bunch of goodies for sale. Grabbed a bunch of stuff monday night:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/9E68B790-3D7E-4DDF-8877-2403AB7F77E7_zpsva1slj0b.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/9E68B790-3D7E-4DDF-8877-2403AB7F77E7_zpsva1slj0b.jpg.html)

Mattel Electonics D&D game

100% Complete except for the instruction manual. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get it to power on...

What I mainly went to the guys place for was, GI Joe. He has my holy grail and I will buy it, but with these toys popping up out of the blue, I went for quantity.

First up, my CIB Killer Whale:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/863BB397-A6B5-4223-9BA1-3732523609D7_zpscuuqbxec.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/863BB397-A6B5-4223-9BA1-3732523609D7_zpscuuqbxec.jpg.html)

Blueprints, File card, inserts, and catalogs included. Condition upgraded my APC to a complete one:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/9145194B-E553-4D0E-9842-0D5F62FD217A_zpsyuajfp0o.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/9145194B-E553-4D0E-9842-0D5F62FD217A_zpsyuajfp0o.jpg.html)

Finally grabbed a Toss 'N Cross and a Slugger (missing gun) to go with their respective drivers:


(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/83E960B6-FF30-4171-A1EA-04556879EEDD_zps0bebyty2.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/83E960B6-FF30-4171-A1EA-04556879EEDD_zps0bebyty2.jpg.html)

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/269BB77D-7C59-454F-A8A9-8658F0542A33_zpsvuupzee1.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/269BB77D-7C59-454F-A8A9-8658F0542A33_zpsvuupzee1.jpg.html)

Slugger crossing bridge:

 A Nice complete Cobra Night Raven with TWO mint Strato Vipers:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/8AA007A5-80F1-47FF-9E30-5B54DFE0E338_zpsapia3sif.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/8AA007A5-80F1-47FF-9E30-5B54DFE0E338_zpsapia3sif.jpg.html)

And the last thing I got from the guy which I was stoked about was this rare but unfortunately broken, original 1982, mail-away, Mickey-mouse logo, Cobra Commander:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/87D9AC61-FCB6-47A2-B663-962FAD0358DD_zpspjasb0xz.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/87D9AC61-FCB6-47A2-B663-962FAD0358DD_zpspjasb0xz.jpg.html)

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/FB1A1C75-613E-4503-BACE-365FE4482DDF_zps1uqqgpzs.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/FB1A1C75-613E-4503-BACE-365FE4482DDF_zps1uqqgpzs.jpg.html)

And lastly, because I condition upgraded my APC and Hovercraft and my buddy condition upgraded to a complete Castle Grayskull, we traded our doubles and I got:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/1FE8CA43-A989-4D42-ACD6-EEE8FBC92645_zpslebnzixx.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/1FE8CA43-A989-4D42-ACD6-EEE8FBC92645_zpslebnzixx.jpg.html)

Hoping to get the pieces I need when I get the rest of the Joe stuff. I am pretty pumped though that I have a vintage to go with my Matty Grayskull:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/B46C1898-66EC-4766-8736-C5E884FD8A68_zpslhjhlufo.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/B46C1898-66EC-4766-8736-C5E884FD8A68_zpslhjhlufo.jpg.html)

Sweet Godzilla!

What follows is probably my greatest toy score as a collector...ever. First up (mostly complete) Masterpiece Megatron:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/BB261C03-35F9-4495-B8D5-6DD8A71AB246_zpsymca30jv.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/BB261C03-35F9-4495-B8D5-6DD8A71AB246_zpsymca30jv.jpg.html)

whoops! forgot the pieces on his shoulders

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/BBA6929D-F7CC-49B0-8624-667D5EBE17E9_zps8zsblwwt.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/BBA6929D-F7CC-49B0-8624-667D5EBE17E9_zps8zsblwwt.jpg.html)

scale comparison.

and been waiting years to make this scale comparison photo:

One of these things is not like the other...

Grabbed a rare Dreadnok Ground Assault jeep from the same guy:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/B75552DE-681C-41D8-B1E8-A9606B2CC6F9_zpsidj3ogfg.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/B75552DE-681C-41D8-B1E8-A9606B2CC6F9_zpsidj3ogfg.jpg.html)

And finally, without further ado, my holy grail of Gi Joe collecting, and finally mine:

Measuring in at 7 1/2 feet long, the USS Flagg Aircraft Carrier is the biggest and probably coolest toy playset ever produced. These things usually retail on ebay (5 right now) for anywhere from $700-$3000 USD. I managed to get mine for about $700 USD.

Felt that 32 figures on the flag weren't quite enough. Also recently got a second Star Wars Black Bespin Luke, and gave him a temporary home:

HEY NOW!

I finally managed to snag a World of Nintendo WARIO action figure at the local Tar-Jay earlier today.


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/warioaf1_zps1083e84c.jpg?t=1415836442)


This bad boy was so short-packed-- even more so than Link-- I'd all but given up hope of even seeing one at retail, let alone buying it. But I decided to check out the toy section on the way to the B2G1 video game specials, just in case. Needless to say, I'm glad I did.

Now you're wondering if I freed Wario from his package. Weird thing is, I didn't have to; dude's so freakin' badass, he busted himself out.


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/Warioaf2_zps752ff2e3.jpg?t=1415836512)

Besides, only Justin Bieber fans and aspiring serial killers keep their action figures packaged. And you KNOW who you are, you degenerates!

Fortunately, Wario seems to be adjusting well to his spot on the shelf:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/Warioaf3_zpse554ebe8.jpg?t=1415751312)

And as you can see, he's being his usual douchy self. Yeah, just go right ahead and taunt poor derpy-Knuckles while Silver has him in a trance, you insensitive lout. Wait 'til he finds out about you and Rouge's plan to swipe the master emerald...

YOU... SICK... DEPRAVED... SON OF A--

*AHEM*

Bad enough you keep your other figures imprisoned. But OPTIMUS PRIME?! That's taking it WAY too far! You're worse than Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot combined! Oh, so you're amused, are you? Well, you won't be so amused when you die and go to straight to hell for this unforgivable sin, where Satan has personally constructed a tenth circle for you to suffer in for all eternity! It's just for you.... just for you. No one else can burn forever in the tenth circle... NO ONE ELSE.

Um... you might want to consider getting a new banana runt candy for Silver to hold. The one he's got looks a bit pale... and likely VERY stale. I'm gonna ask Santa to throw a fresh box of runts into your Christmas stocking this year. And that last sentence sounded kinda wrong, didn't it?

Saw Toys R Us lowered the price of the MMPR Legacy Figures to $12.99 so I splurged and picked up Lord Zedd. I also picked up the comic turtles TMNT with the comics included. I already had Tiger Claw and Robotic Foot Soldier so I have every current main run TMNT in the package, until the next wave.

Actually no, I really only set out to collect the basic assortment playmates figures. The revoltech figures ARE AWESOME, but I just don't have that kind of disposable income (or maybe I do but I buy too much other shit!)  :leo:

Another figure I won't open, until I get a second one, just because they are as rare as platinum around my parts:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/A808E7ED-128C-4A03-A1B3-4B894E0CA597_zpsm54s96r9.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/A808E7ED-128C-4A03-A1B3-4B894E0CA597_zpsm54s96r9.jpg.html)

Hasbro really messed up by releasing the very cool and hot; Han Solo and Boba Fett, in the same wave as dull peg-warmers; Greedo and Slave Leia. The end result is all local stores around me, refuse to restock with current wave figures, due to over-saturation of store shelves with Greedo and Leia. Whenever any local stores put out the wave that had the Stormtrooper, it's usually only one assortment. Meaning one Stormtrooper. Been looking on ebay lately. Might buy a lot of 4 and be done with it.

Got a KO Masterpiece Smokescreen in the mail from China today:

First thing I noticed about the KO, is the box color seems to be more dull than a legit one.

I basically bought a KO to check out the quality and make further decisions to buy more KO's based on my review. For under $40 each, I think I will buy more of these guys.

I've seen those ReAction figures at various retail stores, and I am amused by how generic and barely poseable they are, just like action figures were back in the day. Kinda makes me sad to realize how relatively lame many of the old toys were when compared to today's super-realistically-sculpted and ultra-articulated offerings. Makes me realize how revolutionary ball-joints were when they became a regular feature in action figures. Way to go to ruin my nostalgia, ReAction.  :P

My gripe aside, I hope you sell that entire wall of toys. And with the Yuletide fast approaching, you just might, who knows.

Apparently, this one is the toughest to find in the set. I was able to grab all of the others locally. Shoot me a PM if you come across one and are willing to help. Thanks

Eh?

The engine above is HO, which is 1:87 scale. I was pleasantly surprised when I found it buried in the toy section of my fave Goodwill. When I lifted it out of its hiding place, I could tell from its heft that it was an actual working engine and not a dummy one. And just from the way the engine was laying in the box, I doubt it had ever been taken out of it. Judging from the shape of the cowling, the FP-45 is likely a passenger locomotive. I don't think Santa Fe has had passenger service for quite some time, though.


In case you care, here's a concise history of the FP-45: http://trainweb.org/jfuhrtrain/FP45data.htm

This thread has provided me with untold amusement. But it's time I steer it back on topic. Grabbed these the past couple days:

Picked these up while out and about, don't really collect action figures but thought someone might want them on here.

I will add them to my FS list.

PM me if you are interested in them

Even better yet this set is the glossy set and includes the stickers and a bonus card set

@cody my brother had some credit there so he got them for nothing lol since he traded in some rare magic cards...and the book and puzzle were $0.50 a piece at a thrift store.

That ED-209 is awesome. It's been awhile since I was able to post in my thread, but I grabbed a bunch of stuff. First up, some vintage Masters of the Universe:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/06AFC518-2260-4821-92B1-E884FC443D63_zpsf18seutp.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/06AFC518-2260-4821-92B1-E884FC443D63_zpsf18seutp.jpg.html)

The loose Teela is complete and in nice shape. Man-at-arms is only missing his mace. The Modulok is CIB but the box is opened at one end and a little crushed. The cardboard box on the left, is actually an original Screech, that came from a sealed case of them, so its a brand new toy for all intents and purposes. I watch the guy open the case up, and took one from the box.

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/086CFA52-3185-4324-8262-6431B0DD637B_zpsu87hurvm.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/086CFA52-3185-4324-8262-6431B0DD637B_zpsu87hurvm.jpg.html)

I find these Screech to be strange in their packaging. I assume they were mailed in another box with the part baggie included.

Next up some Transformers:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/CF9A4C22-E03F-4F97-B896-DDA5597A3DE7_zpsynktl0pw.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/CF9A4C22-E03F-4F97-B896-DDA5597A3DE7_zpsynktl0pw.jpg.html)

Ok so the Pretender Monster bodies are not exciting to most Transformers fans other than myself, but the deluxe Insecticon, Venom, was a good score. Just missing his axe.

Lastly, I was able to acquire an instant toy collection, of a toyline that I never owned as a kid, but had the chance to play with many other kids stuff. I present, from LJN toys (yes, THAT LJN) The Advanced Dungeons & Dragons toys:

The figures:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/150E9D88-DF19-4C32-B01C-65B9715B47AE_zpscp2qldzs.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/150E9D88-DF19-4C32-B01C-65B9715B47AE_zpscp2qldzs.jpg.html)

Nightmare with Warduke, Hook Horror monster, and Destrier with Strongheart:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/954B3FAD-E47D-49D9-BDEC-F66F7A68660E_zpsheu3tg4x.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/954B3FAD-E47D-49D9-BDEC-F66F7A68660E_zpsheu3tg4x.jpg.html)

And lastly, the complete loose Fortress of Fangs playset:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/F04C456B-0524-4086-B145-E960F554547F_zpsbmedi7n0.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/F04C456B-0524-4086-B145-E960F554547F_zpsbmedi7n0.jpg.html)

And because I drop so much cash, the dude threw in a '79 Twiki figure from the Buck Rogers toyline.

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/94734C3E-CADB-4685-86D0-2C8BAAA68B2C_zpstmzosacx.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/94734C3E-CADB-4685-86D0-2C8BAAA68B2C_zpstmzosacx.jpg.html)

What are those pieces in the bottom right corner?

Looks like they're from an old train set, here's a picture:
Maybe the blue pieces with the two pins sticking out may fit in the holes, but I'm not sure.

Picked these up the past week.

I really don't collect a lot of toys, I usually just pick toys if, I know they are valuable, and I can trade them for games. I will be keeping these though.  I found all these in a grab bag lot at goodwill. I also picked up a complete copy of Risk: Lord of the Rings Middle Earth Conquest Game.

Ah yes... MUSCLE figures and Battle Beasts were a couple of the also-rans of the 1980s toy scene. I recall Battle Beasts having the heat-sensitive rub-sign thingy that the original TransFormers had. As I recall, there were three signs-- Fire, water, and wood-- and the battle played out like rock-paper-scissors type deal.

Hey, you know what:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CL4zNgZPPHw

"Collect all 84!"?! Sheesh, it's like proto-Pokemon... or even proto-Skylanders... hmmm...

ANYway, I think they've rereleased the MUSCLE figures a few times over the years. The closest I've seen to a Battle beast revival was that Gormiti thing a few years back.

I got that LOTR Risk. I prefer plain Risk.

I remember getting my first batch of Millions of Unusual Small Creatures Lurking Everywhere (M.U.S.C.L.E.), that came in a silvery-looking garbage can. Never got battle beasts, but always thought they were kinda cool.

I will at some point, try and collect the entire first year or two of, Monster in my Pocket figures.

Hey now,

Got me an early b-day pressie in the form of Transformers Combiner Wars Optimus Prime, because f*ck you, you're not the boss of me:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/opt15a_zpsdjvhuois.jpg)

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/opt15e_zpsdevgyl6u.jpg)

This bad boy can combine into ULTRA PRIME with just about any other Combiner Wars arm-bot or leg-bot, be he Autobot or Decepticon.

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/opt15b_zpstzqylmzx.jpg)

Now you're probably asking yourself how such a thing is possible. I'll tell you how: it's 'cuz he's OPTIMUS MOTHERF*CKING PRIME, you insignificant little pissant. And if he wants to combine, he'll goddamned do it, and you're gonna like it... just like your mom does when Optimus combines with her while dad's at work, the rancid whore. So you might wanna think twice about touching that gearshift before taking your Peterbilt out for a spin.

You looking for VG's Vietnam '64-'74 or the Avalon Hill release of Axis & Allies at all? The latter is missing a few pieces, but I can replace them with pieces from an incomplete MB version I have lying around. BTW I have several more looking for a good home, if you're game... so to speak.

Meanwhile: looks like the new Optimus didn't hit it off too well with his shelfmate:

That Lord Soth Puzzle is pretty awesome. I got some nice toy scores recently:

First up, another new tabletop game:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/3325875B-9419-47CD-9303-03A979B39D8D_zpsh0cwshkm.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/3325875B-9419-47CD-9303-03A979B39D8D_zpsh0cwshkm.jpg.html)

Got Drizzt from Crabby. Also got Epic Spell Wizards and the Fallout collector edition from Crabby:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/B7F95CB8-AED4-4D48-8279-C2BAF1E0471B_zps2t1nwve3.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/B7F95CB8-AED4-4D48-8279-C2BAF1E0471B_zps2t1nwve3.jpg.html)

Smash Bros. Soundtrack from Club Nintendo

Next up, some 1980's toy goodness (my favorite kind), from my local toy hookup

Tiamat- from the 1983 LJN AD&D toyline:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/BE1A3F89-9119-4E04-AF5F-90D2F4B3FCA4_zpsevezhxyz.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/BE1A3F89-9119-4E04-AF5F-90D2F4B3FCA4_zpsevezhxyz.jpg.html)

Unfortunately, as the pictures show, Tiamat has a missing front foot. It sucks, but the piece is somewhat rare, and I really want to complete that toyline.

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/3B24650E-2F5D-425B-B166-C10FB879CB23_zpsqc3cwoeh.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/3B24650E-2F5D-425B-B166-C10FB879CB23_zpsqc3cwoeh.jpg.html)

I also got another rare piece for my collection. One that I couldn't pass up, and one that I am happy to have:

From Mattel, The 1981 Clash of the Titans MISB Perseus and Pegasus figure pack:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/2AA8F46A-CAAB-4D32-9B3E-B26132E554F1_zpsrrloafuq.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/2AA8F46A-CAAB-4D32-9B3E-B26132E554F1_zpsrrloafuq.jpg.html)

Box is a little beat and the front plastic (screen) is coming unglued in spots, but for all intents and purposes, this toy is sealed.

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/5CC7772F-3932-44F9-AA1E-B6D6F36DF1C3_zpsul0oyvay.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/5CC7772F-3932-44F9-AA1E-B6D6F36DF1C3_zpsul0oyvay.jpg.html)

Awesome Tiamat! I am playing a huge D&D campaign in 5e, where the big bad is Tiamat. My D&D group would be jealous of that. They made a Mini for Tiamat to use in the game, lets just say its not really that "mini". 

I have been wanting to get some of those D&D board games, they seem to be fun. It is kinda like running a short adventure but with pregen characters, right?

That's exactly what those games are like. The games come with a half dozen pregen characters that cap at level 2. There are about 12 or so pre-generated adventures as well, doing away with a DM.

The basic adventure is easy (as we discovered with Drizzt) the difficulty jumps up right away after that.

Enjoying the heck out of my Tabletop Thursday nights. Wil Wheaton has has been VERY influential with his Tabletop series on Youtube's: Geek and Sundry channel. Crabby has been very awesome in helping me acquire every game that I want to buy, AND I get to hang out with him to try out these games. Its pretty fun and rediscovering a chapter of gaming in my life that I had always wanted to reopen, but never had much opportunity.

No Metroid yet, but I did get these two:

3" figures are actually my favorite. Probably because of the original Pokemon line. Love that they're still making them too. Although they're just too pricey at retail. These were a bit less than 4$ each though.
They were only at one checkout lane in the entire WalMart. Found out because of a tip from my cousin who works there. Love that kid.

Picked up a Star Mario World of Nintendo fig - looked like a chase figure, and for $4, I said why not. I think I saw a few World of Nintendo posts here - any clue if it's worth something guys? Any interest? I'll likely slowly puck up the figures from Wal-mart, but thought I'd ask since I think they have more.

So we had a first annual entertainment expo called FanCon here in our sleepy Northern B.C. town. Crabby was set up in what myself, and many others considered, the best part of the whole thing. Gamers Alley. Crabby had tons of amazing tabletop games, so after coming so close to a victory last time my group played it, I grabbed this from his vending booth:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/2247ECB2-5AA9-4A0E-80BD-94008063EF6F_zpspad6v9kl.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/2247ECB2-5AA9-4A0E-80BD-94008063EF6F_zpspad6v9kl.jpg.html)

I went to the Con with a bunch of money, hoping for more nostalgic toys of my youth. and even older ie: Mego

They had zilch, so I decided to check out an older gentlemen gigantic comic section. His prices were very fair, so I grabbed a couple issues on the first day, a good amount the second day, and a few more on the last. These are the highlight books I grabbed (in varying grades) and why I bought them for my collection:


(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/8CC2777D-1B40-412B-B57D-F7AC9B64F581_zps9beadkv6.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/8CC2777D-1B40-412B-B57D-F7AC9B64F581_zps9beadkv6.jpg.html)

(top row for left to right)
-Swamp Thing #1(1972)- While it may not be the first appearance of Alec Holland as the DC creature known as Swamp Thing, it was his first issue. I looked for House of Secrets #92 (1st app.) but alas, was denied.
-Fantastic Four Annual #6 (1968)- !st appearance of the Negative Zone villain Annihilus and, the unammed baby of Sue and Reed (later named Franklin)
- Thor #132 (1966)- 1st appearance of Ego the Living Planet. Typical Marvel first appearance. Doesn't appear until the end of the issue, and the story is to be continued....
- Thor #134 (1966)- First appearance of the High Evolutionary

(bottom row from left to right)
-Tales to Astonish #90 (1967)- First appearance of Abomination (Emil Blonsky)
-Marvel Superheroes #13(1968)- First appearance of Carol Danvers, who eventually becomes Ms. Marvel
,-Strange Tales #146 (1966)- the first appearance of A.I.M.
-Tales of Suspense #48 (1966)- first appearance of the second Agent 13 AKA Sharon Carter, and the first appearance of Batroc the Leaper.

These books were also eagerly acquired:

Added this to my growing tabletop collection:

Snagged these tonight. Was super stoked for Chewie....

Even though I'm the Optimizer's biggest fan, I think it's best to let Han & Chewie lead this crew. But the team won't be truly complete without...

^   So, I've actually flow on Air China. I wasn't lucky enough to get to ride on an extended range 777 though, it was probably some knock-off Boing 7T7-3000RE or something.

Funny thing about that, my wife and I, plus our Chinese friend/host got to sit in the emergency exit isle. I was in the window seat. The stewardess comes by and nicely tells me that this is an emergency exit isle and asks that I don't mess with the hatch to open the window. Then she turns and says something to our friend in Chinese. After she walks away our friend says to us with a bemused expression and goes, "You know what she said to me? She (the stewardess) said, quite sternly, 'You watch him! Make sure he doesn't open the window!'"

Clearly I looked like the kind of guy who would decide mid-flight to get up and go for a walk....outside. We still laugh about this, and it's one of my favorite stories to tell of going to China.

Awesome, Big Trouble in Little China Action Figures, that made my day.

I have had these games on layaway for a few weeks from our very own Zag. Finally forked over the last of the money, and got em in a few days. I have been wanting Twilight Imperium for some time now. Fortress America has got to be one of the most patriotic board games, I have seen. (Just think of Red Dawn in Board Game form) Anyways, I think I now have the perfect game for July 4th.

Battle Masters is incomplete, but I think I can remedy that. That Battle Mat it has may have second use as a D&D board

Thanks Zag for the CUTIES, they are awesome, and they fit right at home with my M.U.S.C.L.E. collection.

Hey, speaking of games, check out what I picked up a few days ago, still sealed and everything:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/catan_zpsavreiu8k.jpg)

Now I want you to be honest: d'ya think I got a good deal on it?

On another note: those ReAction figures are so awful, they're awesome.

$5 for a sealed Catan. Good deal.

And I agree about the Reaction figures. Pretty horrible but that's part of the appeal.

Hey All! While these aren't really toys they are still cool -

-From Amazon my Mom got a gift card at work and she doesn't use Amazon so she gave it to me to use -
SO I got
-David The Gnome Complete Series
-New Adventures of Superman
-Two Star Wars Books

(http://i.imgur.com/sJ7NpuZ.jpg)

Then! I spent the rest on these two awesome items - both a blast from the past and sold new only on Amazon

I was obsessed with Gnomes as a kid. All started in Grade 2 when I signed out Gnomes by Wil Huygen, from my public library. Then subsequently caused the book to be removed from the library, when my teacher caught wind of the fact, that there was a topless gnome woman illustration in the book. Huh. Maybe I was obsessed with boobs not Gnomes. Either way, I really like both as an adult. lol

Hello again,

Before getting relegated to red-headed-stepchild status by the TransFormers-- and rightfully so-- the GoBots were the first to bring the joy and sorta-coolness of robots-changing-to-cars-and-back to western shores. And boy, did this bad boy bring back some nostalgia:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/gbcc%201_zps7ckwtp65.jpg)


Wow, what an original, inspired design!


(http://www.modelosaescala.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/starwarsatat.01.jpg)


Although the box is fairly beat up, the playset itself is brandy-new-- it's not even assembled yet, and the decal sheet's still intact:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/gbcc%204_zpssazu7df8.jpg?t=1437769710)


It even still has the old price tag on it:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/gbcc%205_zpsdpsfjorb.jpg?t=1437769714)

I bought like $100 worth of X-wing stuff off Crabby, months ago. Finally got to play, on Saturday. Now I am hooked.

This sucker eluded me but I got em. In fact any Kaiju that isn't Godzilla 1954 refused to show up at TRU. Hoping for another to pop up next. Maybe a Mothra or Mechagodzilla.

God, I hate you. Been looking to get the Zaxxon board game for some time now.

Hey, wait a minute... is that a lightsaber-wielding prequel-Yoda Infinity figure? Okay, now you're dead to me. I dunno what it is, but Yoda actually using a lightsaber just seems wrong to me. Yeah, I know, it's the standard armament for Jedi knights and masters, but... it just doesn't sit well with me in ol' greenie's case.

My attitude about this likely stems from the scene in Empire where Luke heads into the cave:

I recently fdropped eight bucks on this interesting Japanese toy robot thingy:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/gai1_zpsv5hqzlr7.jpg?t=1443803930)

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/gai2_zps1coyclrw.jpg?t=1443803930)


A not-quite-complete boxed BanDai Soul of Chogokin MX-27 GaiKing robot action figure with display stand. It's one of those highly customizable deals with quite a few Revoltech-like ball joints for great poseability, and possesses a surprisingly high degree of die-cast metal. The 'bot itself looks like a transitional model between Gigantor and Mazinger-Z, don'cha think? He's kinda Satanic-looking, too...


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/gai3_zpsbp2xbj6p.jpg?t=1443803930)


Although the box isn't in top condition, all the robot parts are nearly perfect. The only thing it's missing is part of the display stand... which, considering its asking price being up to $200 brand-new, probably isn't worth crying over.

I'm not big on buying from Wally World, but the deal I got on it was too good to pass up.

What is "it," you ask? Allow me to show you:

ANYway, I got an early Xmas present in the form of even more Transformer toys:

Two reasons why I freed this guy, from his cardboard and plastic prison. 1) I like to have my Vintage toys (or repro/reissue versions of) loose and 2) It is only right that Trypticon here, should be free to fight his Autobot Arch-nemesis

Mike, those Transformers toys bring back so many memories. I used to have both Trypticon and Metroplex as a kid. Really fun toys, and I'm sure they still are!


Title: Re: The small "Toy" scores thread
Post by: Zagnorch on January 18, 2016, 01:23:44 AM
Was never big on Trypticon, myself. But I definitely would've dug having Metroplex back in the day.

Speaking of which: I know they did a pretty cool redux of Metroplex a few years back. Dude transforms into a 2-foot-tall robot for goodness sakes. I'm surprised they didn't do the same for Trypticon instead of rereleasing the original G1 toy.

In any case, I'm still waiting for a few third-party upgrades to ship out. I can't wait to show 'em off to y'all...


Title: Re: The small "Toy" scores thread
Post by: EngineerMike on January 21, 2016, 06:53:39 AM
I was never big on Trypticon or Fortress Maximus as a kid for two reasons. 1) They were never in the cartoon. Trypticon showed up for like, two episodes? and 2) Nobody had them, So I never knew of their existence, until much later.

Metroplex, however, I have memories of the seething jealousy I had, over the neighbor kid getting one.

Just got in the first third-party upgrade for my Combiner Wars Constructicons:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/conarms1_zpsdfzsrdc1.jpg?t=1454307730)


The replacement forearms for Hook, Long Haul, Scrapper, and Mixmaster were marginally better than the originals...


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/conarms2_zpsqkvtibb8.jpg?t=1454307734)


...but I bought this more for the individual weapons, which weren't included in the Hasbro release.


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/conarms3_zpsfxsxkk30.jpg?t=1454308356)


Finally, Long Haul was given his very own special "upgrade," courtesy of this Constructicon compatriots:

For those that don't know me personally, I am semi-bonkers. my face in the pic proves it!

Anyways, this is the new Gentle Giant 12"Snake-Eyes. Its faithful to the '82 straight-arm, in every way...except size of course!

Here's a scale shot, with an original Snake-Eyes

So I did something, that I have never done, as a toy collector. Mattycollector, which is the website for all of Mattel's exclusive fancy stuff, offers a subscription service for certain toylines. The Master of the Universe Classics, have offered a subscription based service, since the beginning of the MOTUC toyline (2009) I finally decided to subscribe. This years subscription, offers He-man toys, that are designed/styled to look like the characters did, in the 82-83 Filmation cartoon. Without further ado, the first figure in the Grayskull Classics sub:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/CC77EDA0-4FC2-4929-A04F-45397633B2DE_zpssz6rmo1o.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/CC77EDA0-4FC2-4929-A04F-45397633B2DE_zpssz6rmo1o.jpg.html)

the package comes with a removable slip cover. once removed:

*SCOFF* MOTU and TMNT?! Those are, like, only the most BOOOOORING '80s toys EVAR! They don't even even change into planes or tanks and back!

Speaking of which: I picked up a TransFormers Generations Blitzwing a little while ago...

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/bl01_zpsp824vih4.jpg)



...and my third-party bitz upgrade set just got in from Malaysia the other day:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/bl03_zps1gerqeub.jpg)



First up: the clips to keep Blitzy's shoulders from comin' apart when I try to raise his arms.

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/bl04_zpsvsrvxsrl.jpg)

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/bl05_zpsl5np7p4v.jpg)



Up next: a bigger and purpler hand-cannon.

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/bl06_zpsqpmxg4rr.jpg?1456035245224&1456035246748&1456035254938)

It's not like he's compensating for certain inadequacies or anything--

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/bl08_zpsgxff9odk.jpg?1456035425782&1456035427017&1456035433859&1456035435324)
Okay, now he's compensating.



Aaaand finally, a brandy-new noggin that's more faithful to the G1 original.

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/bl09_zpskop9gbmr.jpg?1456035425782&1456035427017&1456035433860&1456035435324&1456035455113)



While I'm gonna miss the original head's triple-change tribute to the TransFormers Animated series...

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/bl12_zpsiapjyyiy.jpg?1456035425782&1456035427017&1456035433860&1456035435324&1456035455113)

...the replacement head's got an extra face of its own:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/bl10_zpsfzgan8v0.jpg)

Until then...

Next up, is LEGO! I like to collect the LEgo minifigures whenever a new set comes out. This is the first time, that I have completed the set:

I was stoked they released a Queen, to go with the King they did a few waves back:

Also, these golden warriors are apparently the guards of the Battle Goddess (also released a few waves back)

My fave this wave, has to be this guy though:

Hey now,

Its time, once again, to put more pics of my beloved toys up. First off, wanted to show pics of my Filmation He-Man, seeing as how I got a second one. Heeeeeeerrrrreeeee's HE-MAN:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/27724541-6885-45BE-A316-FE10B7A6D7C0_zps5rnudy2e.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/27724541-6885-45BE-A316-FE10B7A6D7C0_zps5rnudy2e.jpg.html)

Had to get the shot of him posing in front of Grayskull.

Here's a couple more:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/D65DE382-0232-4C40-BC45-E5B84152A44A_zpsuycxhddi.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/D65DE382-0232-4C40-BC45-E5B84152A44A_zpsuycxhddi.jpg.html)

That guy's WAAAYYY too poseable to be a proper MotU figure. back in my day, all the articulation MotU figures had were rotating squishy heads, rotating shoulders and waists, and a big rubber band holding the legs in place... and we liked it just fine! Why mess with perfection?

ANYway, I grabbed a stack of Lego Star Wars building manuals:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/toy%20040116a_zps0fqyypdk.jpg)

I was planning to flip these... but if somebody here is interested in any of them, perhaps some deal could be struck...

So its bad to change toy lines unless its Transformers? They shouldn't have made a big super poseable devastator either then?

You shouldn't be so busy with your concerns about my alleged inconsistencies. What you should be busy doing is packing up and sending your TransFormers collection to The_8_Bit_Donald, chop-chop! Um, unless you actually want to share CrabMaster2000's fate when he comes to power...  :P

Well they will have to get through Crabby first. I know Crabby personally. To see the guy at first glance, he seems very unimposing and non-treatening, but then you see the guys bicep and its almost as big around as my head, it changes the game. Do not disturb the sleeping giant, as it were.

Hey now...

Several third-party TransFormers upgrade sets I preordered last Christmas Eve are finally available off backorder, and will be heading my way fairly soon. Naturally, I'll be more than happy to show 'em off when they arrive.

In the meantime, last weekend I grabbed a couple complete open-box G1 TransFormers rereleases, both for $5, at a local Goodwill:

Time for a post. So I collect MOTU among other toys. Many of you are familiar with the ever iconic Castle Grayskull. Many though, don't know about the toy accesory that came out to accompany Castle Grayskull. Enter the Point Dread playset. In the He-man mini-comics, Point Dread was a location that was like the bad guys castle in Krull. It could teleport around, but unlike Krull, it had a bird-looking aircraft called the Talon Fighter, that had a Aerie like mount. The toy version, was cool in the sense, that the whole playset/vehicle actually went on top of the Castle. I recently got a second MOTUC Point Dread, so I could open it. I did a video review but I wont subject you all to that. Here's a couple shots of Point Dread w/ Talon Fighter, attached to the top of the Classics Grayskull:


(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/52D7C99D-D25E-419B-BB4B-DEE6817BBC74_zpsxr2znzlb.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/52D7C99D-D25E-419B-BB4B-DEE6817BBC74_zpsxr2znzlb.jpg.html)

And another of the playset, where it resides, in my toy room:

Got lucky this morning, and the package from MattyCollector showed up (before Canada post has a lockout and goes on strike).

 I already had a Skeletor from my Club Grayskull subcription, but when they released the figure for sale to the public, I felt greedy and decided to buy 2 more (limit was 3). These sold out in 4 minutes. I now have two sealed, so I could crack this open and enjoy!

Well, I was told on another thread, to get back to my toy thread, so here I am! Anyways recently grabbed more scores.

First up is a Matchbox truck I ordered from the ebay:


(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/C5B721E3-383A-4B8C-857D-E31E50AD5AD7_zpsm5b9jjei.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/C5B721E3-383A-4B8C-857D-E31E50AD5AD7_zpsm5b9jjei.jpg.html)

Box is a little beat up, but overall happy with the price and condition.

Stopped by my local Walmart the other day and grabbed this stuff:


(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/C69EF1B8-E060-4221-8E09-894F93426AB6_zpsbnwn3jcd.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/C69EF1B8-E060-4221-8E09-894F93426AB6_zpsbnwn3jcd.jpg.html)

I heard the Gold Mario is a bit tricky to get, so I grabbed him when I saw him on the pegs.

Hey, um... you think you could build that Lego airplane, then take it and throw it right into a wall, causing it to violently shatter into a zillion pieces? Oh, and could you film it, and PM me the video? I'd really appreciate it if you could pack as many of the "fun in the park" people in the plane as possible for max casualties. Maybe even voice a few of the people screaming in terror and yelling, "OH MY GOD WE'RE ALL GONNA FREAKING DIE" while you're at it. I know my request is pretty morbid and downright disturbing, but... the latest season of Air Crash Investigation concluded last month, and I'm going through withdrawal. It's just a little something to take the edge off, you know?

On a more serious note: a few long-awaited goodies are due to arrive some time tomorrow, and I can hardly wait to show 'em to y'all.

Until then...

Oh hey! I have that forklift!

Hey, um... you think you could build that Lego airplane, then take it and throw it right into a wall, causing it to violently shatter into a zillion pieces?
Well... There are 364 pieces in the whole set. Probably about half of those are the plane, with some of those being large specialised pieces.
The crash wouldn't be that spectacular. :-\
You can look at the instructions for the plane here though: Instructions (http://cache.lego.com/bigdownloads/buildinginstructions/6162757.pdf)

"Momentary satisfaction," eh? I can just imagine the immediate aftermath: there you are, chilling on the nearby couch, basking in the afterglow of your destructive act. Your gaze hits the floor, and slowly your eyes go to the spot near the wall to the debris field of the Lego plane and its occupants. You pull a Marlboro out of the hard pack, light it, take a deep drag, turn your attention to the scene of destruction again, and say almost under your breath, "was it good for you, too?"


Speaking of momentary satisfaction: a few long-awaited purchases finally hit my doorstep Saturday.

Well, well, well... what do we have here?

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/toy20ug03_zpsrevt8aww.jpg)

More additions to my Magnificent Menagerie of Optimoid Entities, including a special-release Kre-O figure, and TransFormers Generations' redux of Powermaster Optimus Prime! ANYway, we all know what's coming next... so let's just get it over with.

Why, it's none other than Orion Pax, the wimpy worker-'bot who would be rebuilt into the benevolent badass we all know and love today.

But that's hardly the only tribute to the Gen-1 show/toy line:

Yep, that's right-- this PowerMaster is also a HeadMaster! Say hello to Apex, named in honor of the trailer/armor that came with the original PowerMaster Optie.

All righty, time to check out vehicle mode.

Yay, my third-party upgrade kits finally came in! Dang things have been on pre-order/backorder since Christmas Eve of last year. Let's start with the replacement boom for Combiner Wars Hook:

I was never a fan of G1 Powermasters, but I must say, they did a good job on recreating the G1 Powermaster Optimus. Devastator upgrades are almost required. They add so much to the toy. Did you get the replacement "Mixer" for Mixmaster?

Hey now,

I was never a fan of G1 Powermasters, but I must say, they did a good job on recreating the G1 Powermaster Optimus.

I wasn't the biggest fan of original PM Optie either, mainly 'cuz he wasn't very poseable. I did dig his look, though, and some time back I bought the Japanese re-release of the God Ginrai/Godbomber set that eventually came to western shores as PM Optie... minus the second trailer and most of the chromed parts.

I'm hoping they'll do a redux of Laser Optie some day. That's the one with the tanker-trailer that opens up into a badass battle base that shoots loads of missiles and discs.

(http://tfwiki.net/mediawiki/images2/thumb/e/e7/G2toy_laser_optimus_prime.jpg/400px-G2toy_laser_optimus_prime.jpg)

Needless to say, I have a Japanese re-release of that one, too...

Tell me about it. As much as I dig the original, the enhancements make him even more badass.

 
(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/toy20ug16_zpsew3oi7wx.jpg)


After doing some digging, it's amazing how many cool upgrade kits, accessories, and third-party original-design toys are out there now. There are even a few knockoffs that are reportedly better than the originals in design, build, and detail. And don't get me started on the repro decal sets... which I might get to in the weeks to come.

I assume you're talking about this guy:

http://tfsource.com/dr-wu/dw-mixer/


Although the "upgrade" has a dead-on resemblance to the G1 original, I found the asking price a bit steep. Sadly, it appears to have been cancelled by the manufacturer.

Speaking of CW Mixie: check out his cab upgrade!

Hello once again, everyone. Although I promised last time to show off more of my TransFormers upgrade pickups, this time 'round I'm gonna show off a little something that hit my doorstep this morning.


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/mpp01_zpscmwwivgs.jpg?t=1469594286)

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/mpp02_zpstyysyxwv.jpg?t=1469594420)


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/mpp03_zpsawivflfi.jpg?t=1469594563)



Now I know what a few of you are thinking: What's the big deal about a knock-off of MP-10 Optimus Prime? Well, it IS a big deal... figuratively and literally:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/mpp04_zpsxcj9hgrp.jpg?t=1469594871)

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/mpp05_zpsayl0wlri.jpg?t=1469594984)



Not only is MPP-10 Optie bigger, he also possesses several extra sculpting and painting details that the MP-10 lacks, as well as some die-cast metal components. The producers of this knock-off didn't go for the quick buck, and actually aimed to make a superior product to really wow the collectors. And boy, did they really hit the bulls-eye here. They even included not one, but TWO Shia LaBeoufs-- one regular, and one emo:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/mpp06_zpsz56ponb3.jpg)
This is what what happens when you put Linkin Park songs into the movie soundtrack.



Oh, and did I mention MPP-10 Optie is actually a little larger than MP-1:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/mpp07_zpspebe9qi2.jpg)



Whelp, that's it for now. But before I go, I'll leave you with a little taste of what's to come:

And fans yet again will argue which Optimus, is the "Best scale" for other third party masterpieces. I like the scale of most everything that Hasbro/Takara has done for Masterpiece, but I have a buddy that hates that Grimlock isn't much bigger in robot mode. He has bought all of the FansToys Dinobots, and others. I am being picky. If it isn't Hasbro/Takara, I wont touch it.

Also, it saddens me that you refer to Spike as Shia Labouf. I couldn't bring myself to watch any of those godawful Bay movies, after the first one. I would rather wather G1 Season 3, before watching a Bay movie.

Hey now,

And fans yet again will argue which Optimus, is the "Best scale" for other third party masterpieces. I like the scale of most everything that Hasbro/Takara has done for Masterpiece, but I have a buddy that hates that Grimlock isn't much bigger in robot mode.

I'm not hung up on scale too much; if I find an Optimus Prime figure that I really like the look of, no matter if it's a high-quality knock-off or third-party fan-designed "original," I'll put it on my watch list, regardless of scale. The big concerns with me are (1.) the toy's quality, and (2.) if it is worth the asking price. Fortunately, there are usually a zillion YouTube reviews for just about every KO and fan-toy you can imagine, and I'll check out a couple dozen of 'em before I go on to the next step of wondering if it's worth the asking price. In the instance of the MPP-10, I got a good vibe from just about every review I watched, and it was within my discretionary-spending budget.

Now I'm saving up for the trailer...

Well, if that's the kinda attitude you're gonna have, then prepare to be disappointed by my next few acquisitions. I have a fan-designed "original," a KO, and more MP-10 upgrade kits on their way.


Also, it saddens me that you refer to Spike as Shia Labouf.


Blame that on the black-clad driver figure that came with the MPP-10 toy. His sorta-emo look got me thinking about the band Linkin Park, who had a song in the soundtrack of each of the first three BayFormers flicks. And who played the character that Spike was loosely based on in those movies? None other than Shia LaBeouf of course. BTW I'm surprised you still remember him, seeing as how he's not famous anymore...


Quote

I watched each sequel once, and that was all she wrote for me. Kinda sad when the most memorable scene from the sequels was-- *SPOILER ALERT*-- in Age of Extinction, when Optimus killed Frasier before he could shoot Dirk Diggler. I was like, "Holy crap, Optimus just killed Frasier! In front of Dirk Diggler!"

Real exciting shit, you know?

ANYway... if you have the stomach to watch, the confrontation starts at the 1:15 mark:

Hey now...

Yet another toy-score teaser to keep you on the edge of your seats! Just got my repro-label order in from Canadastan:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/toy20080316a_zpswan54d8p.jpg)


- All the label sheets on the left are for the Combiner Wars Devastator

- Upper-right label sheet for Generations Blitzwing

- Label sheets on lower-right are for Combiner Wars Megatron

- Two sheets of embossed Autobot logo labels were a bonus with my order

- StickerFixer adhesive pen


I also hit the local Harbor Freight and bought a set of tweezers and needle files to help me with these projects.


Coming soon: EXTREAM MEGATRON MAKEOVER!!!

Hey now yet again, fellow RFGentlemen.

Time to show off the results of the EXTREAM MEGATRON MAKEOVER...


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/toy20080316b_zpsli0kwoq1.jpg)


...along with BlitzWing's label enhancements.


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/blwg1_zpsqc6wzk2r.jpg)

And while you're here, take a gander at my latest pickup:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/minop2_zpssbfwtggp.jpg)


It's a knock-off of the Optie tractor/trailer combo from Takara's Japan-only Smallest TransFormers line, and features a few enhancements that the original lacks, including...

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/minop3_zpsodgi5rkq.jpg)


...two rifles and a Roller accessory with peg-hole to hold a rifle. And, as you might have noticed, one rifle is thicker (more "bloated") than the other... a tribute to the two different versions of the original G1 toy.

http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-toy-discussion/198426-thats-just-prime-quick-guide-bloated-fist-standard-optimus.html


Speaking of peg holes: KO-Optie's hands feature fist-holes to wield the rifles, as opposed to the original's clip-on dealie.

Aaaand finally: the trailer!


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/minop6_zps46u3oy42.jpg)


Unlike the original, which has a non-functional molded-on repair pod, the knock-off features one that is fully-functional, and features an opening canopy and articulated grappling arm:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/minop7_zpsuas64wtg.jpg)


Whelp, that's about it for now. And you know what? I've become a bit weary of TransFormers. I'm actually looking forward to Michael-of-Engineering-Fame's latest MOTU and G.I. Joe pick-ups to break up the monotony a bit. But before I go, I'll tease my next project:

The ship and accessories are in excellent condition, and likely have never been played with. Which isn't too surprising-- it is a GoBots toy, after all...  ;D

What can I say Zag? I'm just too scared to break my toys (even if they are completely rebuild-able like LEGO) anyways..

So Zagnorch keeps killing it in this thread with all his awesome toy pickups, but every now and then, I feel I need to show off some of my stuff, as well.

So first up, is another Masters of The Universe Classics Filmation sub figures, and the sub bonus figure for subscribing in the first place. I present, Beast-man and Evil Seed:

Sorry about the pics of toys in packaging. I should have doubles of each figure soon, to show off better. Next up, LEGO!

Hey now,

'Bout time ya came back 'round with some new MOTU & Lego stuff, Mikey. Even I was getting a little weary of all the TransFormers scores I was showin' off, and was looking for a change of pace. That having been said, take a gander at what I picked up  last  night:

Another day, another TransFormers score-- this time Blurr from the Titans Return series, which pays tribute to the Headmasters/Powermasters/Targetmasters lines:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/blurr4_zpsoex8rhiu.jpg?t=1473284149)



I didn't have Blurr out of his package for five minutes before he dove into the Micro Machines playsets I picked up a few weeks ago:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/blurr%20mm_zpseae0xezj.jpg?t=1473285533);)

Can't say that someone will ever see any version of Blurr in my collection, but I do have a G1 Wheelie, so its all downhill from there. Anyways, wish I could post some G1 goodness, but alas, it wasnt meant to be. In the meantime, I will post the Wave 1, of the MOTU Super 7/Reaction figures:

Wait... you're not big on having Blurr in your collection, but you already have a G1 Wheelie?! AKA The Orko/Snarf/T-BOB/Scrappy-Doo of the TransFormersVerse?! Are you intentionally trying to get me to have no respect for you whatsoever? Good lord, where did your parents go wrong?

Anyways, wish I could post some G1 goodness, but alas, it wasnt meant to be.


That's all right, I have that angle covered.  I've a big G1-inspired score heading my way some time next month. To quote The_8-Bit_Donald, it's gonna be YUUUUUGE. It's true! It's true...

Wow, they pulled off the impossible and made MOTU action figures that are slightly less poseable than the originals. And they probably don't have any action features or squishy heads, either. Color me impressed!

On the upside, at least they have more realistic builds, and aren't all 'roided out. That's the most Dolph Lundgren-looking He-Man figure I've ever seen... and it probably has better acting skills to boot. Not that it's a major feat to out-act Dolph Lundgren or anything. Just, ummm, don't tell him I said so, 'kay? Pretty please, buddy? Pal? You know I love ya, right? I was only kidding about Wheelie, you know...

Hey,

My buddy went garage sale'n on the weekend and bought a TON of vintage toys. He graciously allowed me to purchase a few of the items he grabbed because he already had them! So I figured we can switch it up this week with the toy posts. No Transformers, No he-man, no star wars...Hmmm...what does that leave for toys that Engineermike loves? Well Gi Joe of course...

I finally have a Thunder Machine to go with Thrasher:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/6AF9380C-3481-4224-9909-0A6E29DBEDE7_zpsymqnerdx.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/6AF9380C-3481-4224-9909-0A6E29DBEDE7_zpsymqnerdx.jpg.html)

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/207F798C-D97B-4755-B344-7D1E4C148CA8_zpsapqm7uco.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/207F798C-D97B-4755-B344-7D1E4C148CA8_zpsapqm7uco.jpg.html)

I love this thing. One of the big designers for Hasbro, Ron Rudat, has said that his inspiration for the design of this thing came from watching the Mad Max movies, and it shows! I love that it uses the front end of a Pontiac Trans-AM. Its ugly but in an awesome way

Next is the big ones. Never expected to acquire these items, but they were there for the taking so why not:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/818A4B1E-106D-4635-BE44-F5ECF07DFD05_zpsxcb2huko.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/818A4B1E-106D-4635-BE44-F5ECF07DFD05_zpsxcb2huko.jpg.html)

I already had Bebop, he is just in pics for scale.

Krangs android body is a bit dirty and has the fork on his head broken off, but I didnt care. The Transport Module is 99% complete. It's just missing 1/8 purple drills that go on the front

Last but certainly not least, I got another nice complete TMNT HTF item:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/9F67DAEB-FE5D-4282-977F-963089CA9CEC_zpsivvoiqas.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/9F67DAEB-FE5D-4282-977F-963089CA9CEC_zpsivvoiqas.jpg.html)

The Technodrome! Horribly off-scale, as shown by Bebop scratching his head beside it.


(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/9186543D-5B8A-412D-A893-5B1397D15579_zps20ndchjv.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/9186543D-5B8A-412D-A893-5B1397D15579_zps20ndchjv.jpg.html)

Krang has his own lab/office/???

But wait there's more! Stay tuned for part.2 of this score.


Title: Re: The small "Toy" scores thread
Post by: EngineerMike on September 13, 2016, 11:30:59 PM
Until the next TMNT score, I have these to post.

first is everyone's favourite green ghost:


(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/325AE223-B09C-4FD3-841A-88FF47C456BD_zpsb6lhtkxa.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/325AE223-B09C-4FD3-841A-88FF47C456BD_zpsb6lhtkxa.jpg.html)

My friend Jeff was reluctant to let this go, but he already had a Slimer, and they are both in great shape. I don't have any of the food accessories that he came with, but I am sure they will turn up. They usually do eventually.

Oh. By the way, did I mention that the guy that was selling all these toys, had an Indiana Jones collection, with movie grade prop replicas of: the golden fertility idol, Coronado's Cross, Sankara Stones, the tablet that Indy got the etching from (spoiler), Lao Che's box with poison and antidote, the grail diary, and a bunch more. Never ceases to amaze me what people in my small city of 100K, have brought here for the purposes of collecting. Our name is Prince George, and we have a problem. Anyways, I got home from work a little over an hour ago and a package was sitting at my door. I knew it was a MOTUC figure but it wasn't the one I thought it was going to be. Still stoked though. Now I have a loose copy of Skeletor's snivelling right hand goon:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/8C728148-B9DB-4D72-8EB2-CF35FF426CF3_zpsez1yiiwo.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/8C728148-B9DB-4D72-8EB2-CF35FF426CF3_zpsez1yiiwo.jpg.html)

Yes. I finally have a loose version of Beastman. And why not the bright neon Filmation version, to join Skeletor in conquering Greyskull?


(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/EE3F70E8-258F-4FE3-9217-CA3ABD8FBEF4_zps64pkgdcz.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/EE3F70E8-258F-4FE3-9217-CA3ABD8FBEF4_zps64pkgdcz.jpg.html)

But where is He-Man during all of this, none of you are asking? Well I'll tell you. Him and Teela are just chillin up on top of Greyskull in the Talon Fighter

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/9AC4AA00-BA2B-49C3-B788-52A86C3200F8_zps6dadsyme.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/9AC4AA00-BA2B-49C3-B788-52A86C3200F8_zps6dadsyme.jpg.html)

Alright. That's all for now folks.

Zoids are hellacool Zag. I passed up the opportunity to get the Lion in the box a couple years back. Ended up getting an original Clash of the Titans Perseus with Pegasus toy CIB

That's cool Flee! Those toys came out during a time in my life, where I was just starting to get back into buying toys again, but all my attention was focused on the Power of the Force Star Wars figures that came out.

Well don't tell anyone, but... I'm gonna resell the Red Horn kit and use the money to buy more TransFormers. Don't get me wrong-- I like ZOIDS. Heck, I even had a scorpion ZOID when I was a kid. However, I like TransFormers even more! Er, not that you could tell from my last gazillion toy-scores posts. ANYway, I'll bet most of today's young'uns don't even know ZOIDS debuted stateside/provinceside back in the '80s.

Speaking of '80s toys: I'll be showing y'all a YUUUGE tribute to one of the biggest playthings from that delicously decadent decade, reeeeal soon. Oh, and a fellow mystery RF Gentleman has told me of his intention to post a few of his fave playthings in the next few days. Oh the suspense!

Like I said before, my latest toy score is, in every sense of the word, YUUUUUUGE:

Hey, what's this:

Yesss... that's it, rub it for luck... oh yeah, that really maximizes my fortress, baby...

--whoah, I drifted off for a moment; sorry 'bout that. I'm not quite sure what happened, but I feel really unclean for some reason.

ANYway, we all know what's gonna happen next, so let's just get it over with:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/fortmax03_zpssoxzopki.jpg)

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/fortmax04_zps99hg8ddc.jpg)


Here's the instruction sheet, decal sheet, and tech-spec card. I really wish they'd go back to the original tech-specs, with the red cellophane dealie to decipher the thing. They brought back the rub-signs in some of the more recent lines, they sure as hell can bring back the old-school tech-specs. Oh well, let's take a first look at the big guy in the tray before I free him from--


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/fortmax05_zps9oynaps1.jpg)


Aw, son of a-- instead of making the box and tray a little wider to accommodate Fort Max's full... um, width, they decided to box him with his left arm detached! Of course, as soon as the arm's clicked into place, it's gonna be permanently attached, which means he'll never fit in the box again. But what if I wanna put him back in storage after putting him on display, huh?! How freakin'-a lame can you get?!

Now I'm in a real pickle: I can just leave Fort Max boxed and not display him... or I free him up, put him together, and never be able to re-box him ever again. Oh, what is a poor 'Norch to do? Y'all will find out soon enough.

Until then...

I made this on a metal lathe last night and finished it this morning. It's not perfect but it's my first try, well, first try that turned out right. I just kinda guessed at the shape as I went along.

(https://c7.staticflickr.com/6/5790/30437221766_ab50d5066b_b.jpg)

It spins for quite a long time if you can manage to start it upright. The handle part is so skinny it's hard to get it going perfectly up and down. Haven't timed it yet but pretty sure it'll spin for a couple minutes no problem.

Pretty much; they're just new heads with vehicles that transform into weapons. So they're Targetmasters, too. In fact, the Combiner Wars-Titans Return line is a tribute to the G1 Headmaster/Targetmaster line. They'll be heading into G2-tribute territory with the impending release of new Laser Rod/Hero Optimus Prime and tank-Megatron toys. Both will be triple-changers to boot: Optie will transform into a full tanker rig, as well as a futuristic fighter plane... which kinda makes him a re-do of Octane when you think about it. And Megs will do his best impression of Blitzwing as he can also transform into a fighter jet.

(FYI all the following images are from the TFSource.com web site)

And not that you care, but there's a Master Piece Megatron coming out that will be to scale with MP-10 Optimus Prime:

Now, that's the Master Piece Megs I've been lookin' for! Well, except for the non-chromed finish. But hey, you can't have everything. The only bummer is that, if I do order one, the distributors will be forced by federal law to open up the package and permanently glue an orange safety tip onto the gun barrel... unless I can convince present-elect The_8-Bit_Donald to get behind legislation to rescind that law when he gets into office. Heck, I'll bet he'd go for that, too! All I need is a couple million dollars in lobbying funds to get the ball rolling! Maybe the next four years won't be so bad after all...

Yeah, I saw that Megatron get listed as a pre-order on the (gouging) site Big Bad Toy Store. Sigh. A third Megatron to add to the collection I guess, To go with my original G1, my MP, and my actual Walther P-38.

Wasn't the Walther P-38 a standard sidearm of the Nazi German forces? Meh, it's infinitely better than owning a lampshade made of skin from a concentration camp victim, so there's that.

ANYway, take a look at my latest TransFormers acquisition! It's none other than the keeper of the key to Vector Sigma: Alpha Tri-

ANYway, have yourself a happy belated Canadian Thanksgiving...

Zag, You are correct about the P-38 being the preferred pistol of Nazi officers. But the pistol was used by German army, even before the rise of the Nazi regime. After the Krauts lost, the German army kept using the P-38 until 1994.

Makes sense; they were on a pretty a tight budget after the war, seeing as how they could no longer access all the plundered gold, artwork, and other valuables they sent to Switzerland for safe-keeping. Waste not, want not...

Grabbed this little guy on Blue Friday:

On a side note: probably the only semi-decent thing the live-action TransFormers flicks have ever done is make Bumblebee somewhat badass... the John-Turturro-golden-showers incident notwithstanding. It's a far from that little bitch in the G1 show who constantly got the Autobots in a bind...

Well, guess I will post again. Been buying more vintage Star Wars stuff, and another collector case came in the post, the other day:


(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/7F43B16B-C373-4514-89B1-BC2D5F95EF5D_zps4kyyuja4.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/7F43B16B-C373-4514-89B1-BC2D5F95EF5D_zps4kyyuja4.jpg.html)

Oooh! So shiny, you can see my reflection!

Lets open her up:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/97FCEC1E-0243-4FF8-A239-3C6F45CE0F5E_zpsovvepe7b.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/97FCEC1E-0243-4FF8-A239-3C6F45CE0F5E_zpsovvepe7b.jpg.html)

My cat clearly wasnt moving for this photo, so I just opened the case ON him.


I know I mentioned it awhile back, but my buddy promised to hook me up with some more TMNT stuff. This is what I ended up with:


(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/D8251888-3290-48EA-B35F-A40691F06140_zpsnkhn2510.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/D8251888-3290-48EA-B35F-A40691F06140_zpsnkhn2510.jpg.html)


Lastly, excited for Rogue One, and snapped these two up from Walmart:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/AD8A3294-D719-41E2-83C0-82DDF452BC6D_zpsqz69jzee.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/AD8A3294-D719-41E2-83C0-82DDF452BC6D_zpsqz69jzee.jpg.html)

I think its pretty rad, that Donnie Yen, now has an action figure.

That's all for now.

Vintage Star Wars collecting is a lot of fun.  Star Wars used to be my main collecting hobby before video games took over.  I had been actively collecting for almost my whole life but eventually burnt myself out on the modern stuff.  I still have everything but I only have my vintage stuff and a character focus (Zuckuss) displayed these days.  I'll still pick up stuff every now and then but game collecting has taken over as my hobby.

Here's a pic of how it's currently displayed.  I don't have a complete vintage collection unfortunately but it's pretty close.  Also there's some M.A.S.K. toys at the bottom.

Awesome collection! That Zuckuss figure is really sweet. He has been one of my favourite vintage toys, that I recently acquired. I love M.A.S.K. also. I had the Switchblade and Jackhammer as a kid, and at some point, I would like to get some nice CIB samples for my collection.


Title: Re: The small "Toy" scores thread
Post by: Bear78 on December 15, 2016, 03:10:17 PM
Thanks! 

Yeah, M.A.S.K. was an awesome toy line!  I have most of the first and second series but only a couple of the split second toys.  They can get expensive dues to all the parts.  IDW just recently launched a new M.A.S.K. comic book so maybe it will get some new life.

M.A.S.K.?! You mean those half-assed TransFormers wanna-bes? Why not just collect the real deal instead, like a real '80s toy enthusiast? :P On the upside: I'm diggin' all the Star Wars swag. Just make sure to never infect it with toys from the prequels...  :yuck:

Speakin' of the real deal: wait'll ya see what I got comin' down the line. Boy oh boy, will it be spectacularly-super-mega-awesome...

Great stuff! Used to collect the Power of the Force line. Used to have everything in boxes until a little hurricane named Katrina ruined the boxes, was able to save the toys at least. I always liked Bossk the most from the bounty hunters. Zuckuss is pretty cool as well

thanks guys!  Zuckuss was always my favorite because he looked cool and didn't get my love.  I got a lot of stuff in there from vintage / modern prototypes to one of a kind artwork.

M.A.S.K.?! You mean those half-assed TransFormers wanna-bes? Why not just collect the real deal instead, like a real '80s toy enthusiast? :P On the upside: I'm diggin' all the Star Wars swag. Just make sure to never infect it with toys from the prequels...  :yuck:

That's actually what most of my modern stuff is is Power of the Force.  I believe I have an almost complete collection and just missing a few late released vehicles.

A few more scores lately.

Added to my modern Star Wars collection:

Bought some World of Nintendo dudes:


(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/2971EECE-C82C-4323-8B65-84AC299750C3_zps9icqt5ld.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/2971EECE-C82C-4323-8B65-84AC299750C3_zps9icqt5ld.jpg.html)

Before I jump into a huge MOTU post, I want to show off the COOLEST Lego set, I have ever had the privilege of owning and assembling:


(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/F9A4536B-2522-4F52-B3A0-EA848DD6F9A3_zpsiviboxjd.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/F9A4536B-2522-4F52-B3A0-EA848DD6F9A3_zpsiviboxjd.jpg.html)

It was such a fun build, and at 4600 pieces+, it took me two days, with a combined 17 hours.

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/A11A1F71-E6CF-4EA8-969E-399058D356CD_zpst3kp9xtp.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/A11A1F71-E6CF-4EA8-969E-399058D356CD_zpst3kp9xtp.jpg.html)


Ok last is my MOTU stuff. Got the last figure in my toy subscription for 2016. He was my least favourite of all of them:

(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/8F2D406E-3B82-483B-963C-DD1114CADC11_zpsva9oniwb.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/8F2D406E-3B82-483B-963C-DD1114CADC11_zpsva9oniwb.jpg.html)

Terrible...

Some more He-man goodies:


(http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag478/michaelrancourt/B3D94841-A0C9-46C0-AC66-40BBEFA33C99_zpsxnpxmj7w.jpg) (http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/michaelrancourt/media/B3D94841-A0C9-46C0-AC66-40BBEFA33C99_zpsxnpxmj7w.jpg.html)

Been putting off getting one of these for awhile. This "technically" completes my Castle Greyskull. I bought two to open one:

The last thing I got from Mattel, was a Giant He-Man figure, to go with my giant Skeletor (Golgo 13 for scale):

Hey now,


Time to show off a few end-of-the-year TransFormers scores, starting with:

Hey now,

Wow, almost two and a half months since the last post, huh? People still paying off the bills from all that holiday gift shopping, I'll bet. ANYway, I'd better post my latest TransFormers Titans Return pickups before this thread falls off the front page.  :P


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/ts%20031017a_zpsmcopvs2i.jpg?t=1489114957)


I grabbed the Titan Masters Ptero, Sawback, Repugnus, Shuffler, and Nightbeat, along with Bumblebee, another Rewind, G1 Blitzwing, and...


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/ts%20031017b_zps5yi39reh.jpg?t=1489114957)


...ReproLabel sheet sets for Stripes, Rewind, "Spensor," and Blaster. The Spensor labels are for the second Rewind I bought, to make him resemble a Mountain Dew vending machine in cassette form. And the... um, stripes... on Stripes' label sheet are embossed.

But wait, there's more! UPS dropped off a few third-party upgrade kits and accessories earlier today. Now imagine my dread when I saw the top of the box:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/ts%20031017c_zpstzfhjfey.jpg)


As you can see, someone apparently used the shipping box as a step-stool. Fortunately, I was relieved when I opened it up and found the contents beautifully uncrushed:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/ts%20031017d_zpsnblcr0kp.jpg)


I'll fill you in on these upgrades at a later time.

Until then...

Hey now,


Just got in a few b-day pressies:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/ts%20032817a_zpshh1ipxhy.jpg?t=1490644229)

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/ts%20032817b_zpsexs5jca7.jpg?t=1490644229)



Of course, there's the obligatory Optimus Prime:

(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/ts%20032817c_zpsj1y56bjk.jpg?t=1490644229)


This particular Optimoid Entity is a triple-changing headmaster styled in the G2 Laser Rod in robot mode, and G2 Hero in tanker truck mode. He also transforms into a really awkward-looking plane, making him a tribute to the triple-changer Octane.



Then there's Titan Returns Megatron:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/ts%20032817d_zpspbd60ivt.jpg?t=1490644229)


Styled after the G2 Hero release, TR Megs transforms into a pretty sweet battle tank and pretty kickass-looking fighter jet. Sound familiar? Kinda makes me wonder if these bad boys are gonna be re-decoed and rereleased as Octane and Blitzwing some time down the line. If so, I'll definitely bite on Blitzie.

Until then, let me show you:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/ts%20032817e_zpsufyiasnb.jpg?t=1490644229)


just one more upgrade kit to go, and I'll treat y'all to T3H MOST 3XTR3@M TransFormers makeover yet!


But before I go, lemme show ya my most awesomest TransFormers score yet:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/ss%20032717f_zps2pyspgep.jpg?t=1490644229)

Um... hello? Anybody here? Bueller? Bueller?

Whelp, looks like I'm monopolizing this thread yet again to show off my TransFormers scores, starting with this MP Wheeljack knockoff:


(http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y409/Zagnorch/ts%20040917a_zpsxdsepyks.jpg)


This bad boy's pretty solid for a knockoff. If only the paint job was a little tighter, this would be a perfect imitation.

And he's just in time to help upgrade my oversized MPP10 Optimus Prime toy:

Feel free to monopolize it. I like looking at the stuff you put here.

When I was a kid, there were a couple of times my mom made me sell some toys at garage sales. The Transformers collection didn't come away unscathed from this. I must have been allowed to keep one or two because I still have Wheeljack and some Gobot.

Almost all of mine disappeared after a time. Well, except for G1 Jetfire-- AKA the link to the never-realized TransFormers/Robotech crossover-- which literally fell apart after several years of enduring nonstop play. I gave the remains to a gentleman who incorporated them into Warhammer 40K landscapes.

I also had the complete Constructicons/Devastator set, the Insecticon Kickback, Sunstreaker, and the minibots Seaspray, Powerglide, and Warpath. On the GoBots side I had the Super GoBots Destroyer and Staks, as well as the Puzzler combiner set I got on closeout. I also had Slicks (F1 race car), Spoons (forklift), and-- naturally-- this Bad Boy:

Hey now,

Glad to see that, at long last, I'm not the only contributor to the thread this year. That being said, I'm worried about Michael-of-Engineering-Fame's whereabouts.

ANYway, while I have a ton of TransFormers I intend to show off in the future-- including a batch of G1s I'm buying from a fellow RF Gentleman who shall remain nameless-- for the moment, I'll show off a couple things I picked up for flippage... with the proceeds going to buying more TransFormers, natch.

ANYway, here goes:


(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4294/35646770570_3363fa61c5_b.jpg)


- Complete Rokenbok Action Sorter & Conveyor: the box is the only thing in off condition; everything else is still wrapped and brandy-new.



(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4305/35865921432_84bcd2ccf7_b.jpg)[/url]

- Monogram 1:12 scale '57 Chevy coupe 3 'n 1 model kit: This is a fairly large model kit. Like the Rokenbok set, it's all brand-new and unassembled parts in a really beat-up box.


Until next time...

Hey now,

I bought a batch of G1 TransFormers from a mystery RF Gentleman, which came in the other day.


(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4386/36226367040_52d118a001_z.jpg)


All right, let's do this.


(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4411/36226366910_dfdd06b8f6_b.jpg)


It's geezin' time!


(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4393/36453981412_e047fe24b5_b.jpg)


Starting things off is Warpath, Huffer, and a Diaclone driver for my Japanese G1 Optimus Prime reissue. Warpath was one of my fave childhood TransFormers mini-bots (along with Powerglide), and I bought Huffer for my best bud as a b-day pressie.


(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4417/36453980692_aa48f12927_z.jpg)


Up next: a nearly-complete Constructicons/Devastator set (it's missing one gun). I'll show this one off a little later when all the CrazyDevy upgrade parts I ordered come in.


(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4407/36226366430_72befc2f7a_b.jpg)


And now, the main event! Sure it's all yellowed half to death, but I finaly got my hands on a fully functional Robotech/Macross Veritech/Valkyrie fighter G1 Jetfire!


(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4333/36226366130_b154dd5f6e_z.jpg)

Glad to see that these made it to you safely. I'll be curious to see what fantastical upgrades you decide to add to them.

Hey now yet again,


My Jetfire repair parts came in...

(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4409/35887316993_44591eb149_b.jpg)


...as well as more TransFormers upgrades and 3rd-party offerings:


(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4438/36302301250_497e388953_b.jpg)


Up first: Optimus Prime Age of Extinction sword keychain, and the 3rd-party Generation Toy Leaders set.


(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4365/36651611826_9f882bae0d_b.jpg)

(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4387/36650894926_333d1e85cc_z.jpg)


Although they're not of great stature-- both stand at about 4 inches in height from head to foot-- they sport some decent detail and are more than reasonably poseable. They're also roughly to scale with a 3rd-party Devastator set I have on backorder. Needless to say, I'll be sure to show that bad boy off to y'all when it comes in, as well as show off some comparison shots with my other Devastator sets.

Up next is a full-figure upgrade for Titans Return Powermaster Optimus Prime:

(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4416/35887316053_e621b1104d_b.jpg)


All right, time to break out my other upgrade set and screwdriver kit, and go to town.

Hey now,

Sorry I haven't posted anything new for several months... but fear not! For as you'll soon see, I've hardly been slacking on the TransFormers scores:


(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4679/27322355799_d6e7095652_b.jpg)



It's quite the mix this time 'round.  For starters, I ordered the first wave of Prime Master figures & decoy shells from the new Power of the Primes series, which pays tribute to the Pretenders line from the TransFormers' HGaSiaD&FEtMMS* period, AKA the late '80s - early '90s.


(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4600/27322355599_980e223ddb_b.jpg)
*Hilariously Grasping at Straws in a Desperate & Futile Effort to Maintain Market Share


Speaking of grasping at straws: I also grabbed a couple Micro Machines MicroMasters transports seen at the top, with Overload on the left and Erector (*SNICKER*) on the right. Below those is the Decepticon Demolition team, part of the mini-cons line introduced in PokeFormers TransFormers Armada back in the early aughts. Speaking of which, at the bottom is a Mickey D's Armada Optimus Prime Happy meal toy thingy.


(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4684/27322355439_1bd0b75951_b.jpg)


Getting back to goodies for the youngins: I picked up a loose Playskool Rescue Bots Optimus Prime car-carrier for next to nothing.

(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4679/27322355129_5cf5ff06d2_b.jpg)
Ultra Magnus is gonna be p!$$ed when he finds out Optie's stolen his gig.


I also dove into the third-party Trannies with a vengeance, picking up DX9's War In Pocket version of Soundwave, and Iron Factory's mini rendition of Shockwave. Each toy is about 4.5 inches high, and sports surprisingly good detail and poseability for its size. Mini Soundwave even has three transformable versions of Lazerbeak, Ravage, and Buzzsaw... or is it RatBat? Kinda hard to tell, but the super-mini-cassette-bots are also surprisingly detailed... which you'll see in a future toy scores post.

(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4642/27322355309_2f5f81ccff_b.jpg)


Another neat third-party offering I couldn't pass up: An oversized version of G2 Laser Optimus Prime, which is roughly to scale with the original Master Piece Optimus Prime MP-01 toy. I'll definitely be showing this guy off in a future toys scores post.


(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4684/27322355209_09e67beb4f_z.jpg)


Rounding things out is Combiner Wars Shockwave, and RiD Sandsting:

(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4733/27322354949_1cea6e6b6b_b.jpg)


But my fave piece in the batch by far is this bad boy*:

For anyone interested in these, they're Wal*Mart exclusive.  They're not just vinyl figures, they're Stretch Armstrong-like stretchy toys.  They are the most video game accurate piece of merchandise to come from the Rampage movie marketing blitz.

Went to the Jersey Shore Toy Show which was a relatively small affair but nice. I think I just took my first step into TMNT collecting.

Glad to see the last several posts have been offering some variety to the thread with more'n a few non-Transformers scores.

That having been said, take a look at what I recently acquired:


(https://farm1.staticflickr.com/899/27320101278_44cece1a0f_b.jpg)


It's a velcro-backed Hello Kitty Optimus Prime patch! Isn't she just t3h ad0rbz?!

But wait-- who's holding it up? Let's pull back to reveal...


(https://farm1.staticflickr.com/891/41194379951_4c3b8eb734_b.jpg)


... a high-end knock-off of MP-36 Masterpiece Megatron with head upgrade! I have a fusion arm-cannon upgrade on order for this fine gentleman, as well as a reprolabels decal sheet to give him a more G1 toy look.

But wait-- who's the big guy behind him?


(https://farm1.staticflickr.com/879/27320101018_b34c5a81ab_z.jpg)


It's none other than the Wei Jiang NE-1 MegaMaster, the upsized quasi-knockoff of MP-36 Megs! Now what do I mean by quasi-knockoff? I might explain in the future, if I feel like it. ANYway, he has a few upgrades coming as well, hopefully very soon...

Whelp, that's about it for now. Hope y'all had a wonderful Easter and/or April Fools, and until next time...

Not a current toy score yet, but I'm definitely keeping my eye out for this bad boy:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHNKCODov04

An even more oversized KO of MP10 Optimus that stands about 28" (71 cm) tall in robot mode, and would make a great ride for my RoboCop figure in truck mode. BTW I wonder how much longer 'till they release a 1:1-scale version? And don't even get me started on the trailer accessory for this behemoth.

See you next time when I show off my latest batch of TransFormers goodies...

Took advantage of the GameStop clearance sale.  These were half off the sticker price.

All right, time to show off my latest batch of TransFormers (mostly) mini-bots:

(https://farm1.staticflickr.com/845/41481810030_9b4c87f9fa_z.jpg)

- Power of the Primes Inferno, which is a repaint and slight redeco of Combiner Wars Protectobot Hot Spot. Personally, I prefer Inferno's red-and-black paint job over his predecessor's light-blue-and-red livery.


(https://farm1.staticflickr.com/834/42573080424_510d09fb68_z.jpg)

- On the left and the middle are the second wave of PotP Prime Masters figures, tributes to the Pretenders toys that showed up in the late '80s, near the end of the Gen-1 toy run. On the right is a Japanese Transformers Legends Shockwave figure with Cancer headmaster mini-figure.


(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1808/42573080554_68b1d1b2e6_z.jpg)

 - Above left is Centuritron, the combined form of the Generations series mini-con assault team. Above right is the Armada Emergency mini-con team. Below are a half-dozen Micromaster combiners, whose front halves and back halves are interchangeable. Each half transforms into its very own robot.


Aaaand finally, there's this bad boy:

(https://farm1.staticflickr.com/847/41481809740_b1c75c3968_z.jpg)


If this looks somewhat familiar, here's the likely reason why:

As you can see, Mega-Maid wasn't the only TransFormers reference in Spaceballs.


Whelp, that's it for now. Join me next time when I whip out another awesome bit of Spaceballs merch:

Title: Re: The small "Toy" scores thread
Post by: EngineerMike on August 11, 2018, 07:31:47 PM
So, for the mini bots, they released: Bumblebee, Swerve, Outback and Tailgate. For the bigger bots, they have released Starscream, and Hot Rod.


Title: Re: The small "Toy" scores thread
Post by: EngineerMike on August 11, 2018, 07:33:52 PM
One thing to note about these reissues. They all have been modified slightly from their original versions. The minibots all have "improved" faces, with additional paint deco.


Title: Re: The small "Toy" scores thread
Post by: Bear78 on August 13, 2018, 09:56:38 AM
Those re-issued Transformers are pretty cool.  I already have some of the original mini bots but man it's tempting to pick a few up. 

If they do a Soundwave again, I might have to grab him as I've never owned one and didn't get him the last time they did a re-issue.

I dunno, she sure looks a lot like the original She-Ra to me, and not that new early-teen one that has triggered a few basement-dwelling YouTubers for lacking the fappability factor. Jesus H. Murgatroid Christ on a burning bed, just get me off of this goddamned planet already. It's nonsense like this that makes me never wanna leave the house, you know?

DO IT! Stop being He-Man's real arch-nemesis, Beta-Cuck Soy-Boyģ, and grow a pair already! Toxic masculinity FTW! Actually, now that I think about it, Beta-Cuck Soy-Boyģ is an apt moniker for He-Man's alter-ego Prince Adam. And it definitely applies to Battle Cat's alter-ego Cringer.

Aaaand I am putting way too much thought into this. I'll just move on now...

Neat. Not really considering picking up any of these little guys, but I dig that they gave Bumblebee a G1-cartoon-accurate face. It is kinda weird that they went with the original card art featuring the mouthplate face, though.

Speaking of mouthplate faces: It's time to reveal the biggest (third-party KO) TransFormer yet:

That's where the good old-fashioned side-by-side comparison with my MP-10 Optie comes in:

Whelp, that's it for now. I would have posted more pics, especially the robot mode, but I'm waiting until the button-cell batteries arrive so I can power up this bad boy's light-up features. And he's got a LOT of lights, lemme tell ya.

Hey now yet again, esteemed RF-Gentlemen:


(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1842/44073488734_579227059d_z.jpg)

Now to flip the switch on the back of his head, and--


(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1876/29856750157_5073899ebb_z.jpg)



OH MY GOD HIS BLINDING STARE IS SUCKING MY SOUL OUT OF MY BODY I TRY TO RESIST BUT I CAN'T LOOK AWAY PLEASE SEND HELP

Optimus Prime & Knuckles? It's waaay better than 99.999% of those "____________ & Knuckles" memes polluting the interwebz. This is one crossover I can really get behind!

What's that, Knuckles? Oh, you're gonna drive Optimus all the way to Uganda, are you? Are you sure you know the way?

ANYway, let's check out all the other cool lights:

Sadly, for all of the lights this dude possesses, the headlights don't light up. A real bummer, you know?

Ah well, time to show him in all his robotic glory:

(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1843/43882924505_eccc813795_z.jpg)

Aaaaand finally:


(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1865/43882924705_49b8c93524_z.jpg)



Knuckles and Optie are really bonding; they just told me they're going as Master Blaster from Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome for Halloween. I can see that...

ANYway, I'll probably be sharing some size-comparison shots of Kaiju-Optie with my other TransFormers in the near future.

Until all are one...

Not a pick up per say but I pulled 2 boxes of 90s toy nostalgia out of my parents attic. I know the box on the right is mostly 90s X-Men figures but the other box is all kinds of random stuff. Let's see what we can find!

(https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/43424411_10102764167243858_1056325546931126272_n.jpg?_nc_cat=108&oh=e40e913f23fb8b1ee0001a35a1fd0f52&oe=5C197770)

First up is some Mattel Code Zero military figures. Such a cool forgtton line.

(https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/43522953_10102764171899528_2471034615423303680_n.jpg?_nc_cat=103&oh=035e2844e410b097a39e67dcb221a6f5&oe=5C5D8034)

The A-Team lunch box held a bunch of Matchbox swappable / building cars. Looks like they were called Connectables.

(https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/43325198_10102764178241818_5269966215547191296_n.jpg?_nc_cat=108&oh=34d3a9a858080322c4dd211808348652&oe=5C554C67)

Micro Machine ZBots! I forgot all about these guys.

(https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/43371654_10102764202133938_2548413553681891328_n.jpg?_nc_cat=109&oh=461fc7068f896a99d4c036fd2708bc0a&oe=5C584603)

Only MTG card I kept when I sold my collection. Don't get too excited, it's a "International Edition" which means it's not worth as much as an original black border Shivan Dragon.

(https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/43425695_10102764211320528_8560262398118723584_n.jpg?_nc_cat=104&oh=a8fad573fc2defe677b174bd4a08abd0&oe=5C152B9B)

Only Mighty Max toy I ever had. Never really got into these.

(https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/43331283_10102764270347238_5394742673422680064_n.jpg?_nc_cat=109&oh=b449ed0d4e76df1155be25cadce974a9&oe=5C1699E4)

Mattel Computer Warriors. Another random toy I only had one of. This one is looking pretty rough.

(https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/43375234_10102764316360028_5727659834942160896_n.jpg?_nc_cat=105&oh=2e6d5000ddc2fb2380961dc3e87a46e9&oe=5C4F0326)

Sega pocket power toy.

(https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/43392944_10102764331769148_1149986594539700224_n.jpg?_nc_cat=100&oh=957f8a6debc0a84b5a79526d633e1a6b&oe=5C1765EE)

Galoob Army Gear. I definitely had a thing for transforming war toys.

(https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/43357841_10102764446424378_4021944509985193984_n.jpg?_nc_cat=102&oh=a88bfcb836c610c430bd43b6cb1db64f&oe=5C58F5E3)

That's it for now.  I'll post some more pics when I go through the other box.

Started on the other box last night...

Kenner Mega Force. These things remind me so much of shmup bosses. Out of everything so far, I'm tempted to try and get some more of these the most.

These are new/updated versions of the classic Masters of the Universe figures, offered through Super 7. She-Ra is the only figure of those 4, that is an entirely new figure. The other 3, are redeco/repaints.

I dunno, she sure looks a lot like the original She-Ra to me

Hey now!

This one's for you, Mr. Michael of Engineering Fame! I hit the local Savers thrift yesterday, and found a few things you might really dig.

Let's see what I have here...

A complete MOBAT (MObile BATtle tank) with working motorized treads...

Awesome Joe finds!  That M.O.B.A.T. isn't quite complete.  It's missing the turret gun that slips over that cross part.

Scumbug is pretty creepy.

Which is prone to breakage, and quite often missing.

Hey now!

A little bit of Yuletide cheer from a certain RF Gentleman hit my doorstep this morning:

All right, let's dig in:

Oooh, a note!

(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4887/44502919220_7a06fd38fe_z.jpg)
THEY'RE NOT "JUST TOYS," DAMMIT! WHY CAN'T I MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND?!?!  :grrr:



*AHEM* Let's see what's in here:

(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4848/31380504407_14cbbeefe6_z.jpg)



Uh-oh, the robot parts broke free from their blister pack and got all mixed up! And with no assembly instructions to go off on. But that's okay, I figured it out:

Aaaaaand finally:

Time to turn our attention to a truly awesome combiner-bot, one I acquired some time back:



(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7856/40164524163_3ed7131907_z.jpg)


I was never too keen on Predaking back in the day, but after giving this big boy a good look, he won me over. While Devastator is still my all-time fave combiner, Predaking is now a close second.


(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7894/40164524093_7d19c3dca2_z.jpg)


Standing at about 18 inches, has some real presence. Still, there are a few things about the guy that could use a little... enhancement. You know, an upgrade. Only thing is, I can't think of any--


(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7841/40164524003_6b48a49c72_z.jpg)


Ah, there we go. Hey look, it's Shockwave, the Decepticons' resident mad scientist and ultimate logician, here to lend a hand! Well, he only has one hand of his own to lend, but that's neither here nor there. Seeing as how he's the inventor of the whole combiner deal in several TransFormers continuities, Shockwave's expertise should prove indispensable to the task at hand.



(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7911/40164523923_f7b80d2e20_z.jpg)



Aaaaand speaking of hands:



(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7835/40164523873_fe29a70d54_z.jpg)



Time to do the wing thing:


(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7850/40164523783_6a3577032f_z.jpg)
Dude, don't bogart the energon dipping sauce!



All righty, let's shore up that midsection! And no, the piece on the right is NOT what you think it is; get your mind out of the gutter for Primus' sakes!

See? Told ya!

(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7843/40164523563_7eafc409df_z.jpg)



Aaaand finally, an armament upgrade:


(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7917/47129506301_521857cd8c_z.jpg)



Oops, I forgot about this little feature! just lift up a door on the back of the hands...

TA-DAAAA:

Now THAT'S more like it!



Whelp, that's it for now. I'll likely be showing off a few of my more recent TransFormers acquisitions in the coming weeks... but don't hold me to that.


Until then...

Hey now,

I'm not showing off any new toy scores here right now, just posting a YouTube video that exploits covers the subject of, shall we say, extreme adult toy collecting! And no, I don't mean the collecting of adult "toys," I mean-- well, just watch the video and you'll see what I mean.

Hey now,

Recently, I took advantage of some savings coupons and Amazon gift card credit, and grabbed myself the latest Soundwave and a couple cassette minions.

For the last freaking time: YES, I DO KNOW THE WAY TO CYBERTRON! For the love of Primus, stop asking me that!



Whoa, check this out: his index finger is slightly extended from his left fist.

I was really worried that it might be incomplete or broken; that's usually the case with TarJay-salvage toys I find at Goodwill. I really lucked out in this instance...

Ummmm... hello? Does anybody but me ever even visit this thread anymore, let alone post in it? Meh, no matter. ANYway, A special package from the Land of the Rising Sun arrived the other day.

Holy crap, what could possibly be in there???



(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48690650183_bdb52f7e57_b.jpg)



Introducing...



(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48690990466_cdcc78a838_b.jpg)



...TransFormers Masterpiece MP-44 Optimus Prime 3.0, the most G1 cartoon-accurate transforming Optie yet!

 And now, it's time for everybody's favorite moment: the unboxing.

Wow, look at all those gewgaws & tchochkes, many of which are callbacks to several episodes from the G1 series. But before we get to that, take a gander at the tractor-trailer mode in all its glory:



(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48690990341_62a577fc3c_b.jpg)



Time for a little side-by-side with the MP-10 Optie:

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48690990226_9d7ab87f30_b.jpg)



And MP-44's robot mode is noticeably slimmer, sleeker, and less blocky than his MP-10 predecessor:



(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48691156912_5a31454c56_b.jpg)



All right, let's get a closer look at those accessories... let's fire this up!

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48691156327_2bef4650d5_b.jpg)

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48690649863_2d949eb988_b.jpg)



Along with the trading card, this bad boy comes with the two obligatory Masterpiece Optie accessories: the enegon axe-hand from that one episode...

And the Starscream-disguised-as-Optimus-Prime from that other other episode.

I've barely posted in here and small scores thread despite having picked up heaps of stuff this year. I'm extremely lazy and tired and apathetic... for reasons. But hey, I can at least hotlink pics I've already uploaded on instagram, if it'll liven up the place. Mind you, this isn't even every single piece I've picked up.

That new Prime is really nice! 

I haven't picked up much lately as far as toys go.  I did grab one of the newer Godzilla vinyls that Wal-Mart is currently selling just to throw on the shelf.  I think I got the 68 version if memory serves me right.

They have TransFormers Keshi figures as well, but I'm not completely sold on them... yet.

Time to unbox my latest TransFormers triple-threat score:


(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48756254596_f3c7878304_z.jpg)



Now you're probably wondering why I bought three Refraktors; I assure you there is a reason...


(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48771362156_e5ca13e32b_b.jpg)

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48755936938_9cc1bdc8da_b.jpg)



...and that reason is this:


(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48755936823_9b11141c98_c.jpg)



As some of you might have guessed, Refraktor is a modern tribute to Reflector, the first combiner team to appear on the G1 'toon show.


(http://i.pinimg.com/originals/ac/e1/22/ace122d09ac85f34f1f13b3fca4636e7.png)



Oh, they can also combine into this:

Until then...

Hey now,

That's really cool they built all those extra modes into Refraktor.


Thing is, even though the camera is shown on the back of the toy packaging, they don't provide an instruction sheet on how to transform them into the camera. Fortunately, I have YouTube to help me out when the instruction sheet is either incomprehensible, or nonexistent. As for the triple spaceship, I think that one might have been improvised by a savvy TransFan. And speaking of YouTube and savvy TransFans, I discovered how to do both transformations from a video by Wotafa, a fanatically enthusiastic toy collector from the Land of the Rising Sun:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nr5S5xWjLSY


Although I don't understand 99% of what he's saying, he provides really good visuals of the process as he changes the robots in spaceship mode back to robots, and then to the big spaceship and then to the camera, with a few side-by-side size comparisons with various Gundam mechs and other TransFormers Siege figures sprinkled in for good measure.


His video on how to transform MP-44 Optie also proved quite helpful:



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6pGQiBB6Lk



ANYway, I'll have a few more TransFormers gems-- and a few not-TransFormers gems-- headed my way in the next few weeks. So don't go anywhere, or y'all might miss 'em...

So I bought a bag marked "various 80's figures" at a toy show yesterday mainly because it had a couple of Battle Beasts in it and I could use some help identifying the other figures.  I believe the top 2 on the left and the sliver guy are Dino Riders but any idea on the others?

It was a Transformers weekend.

First, I found this Highbrow for $10 at a Vintage Stock.  He's missing his guns, the canopy, and one of the arms is broke off the head but he was cheap and displays fine in robot mode.

(https://i.imgur.com/JD8aIk5.jpg)

Then, I just couldn't help myself after seeing these at Wal-Mart...

(https://i.imgur.com/uWCkYLs.jpg)

I never owned a Soundwave when I was a kid so I figured it was high time I got one.  Sure it's a re-issue and not vintage but it works for me.  It'd be really cool if they re-issued some of the other tapes but I'm sure this is all we'll get.

They are Wal-Mart exclusive.  Use brickseek to track it down.  It's a bit on the expensive side IMO but I was willing to pony up for it.

Yeah, I work at Wally World so I check at least once a day. The site is telling me there's one in an adjacent town but I don't know if I'm down for 50 bucks plus a drive... :/ Maybe one day I'll be able to transform and roll out.

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48978784656_b71a9c3c50_b.jpg)


- Vintage G1 Soundwave reissue: While I try to avoid shopping at Wally World as much as possible, I have to admit I was intrigued by Bear78's score, so I broke down and bought my very own from the Wally World-Wide-Website for delivery to my front stoop. I've yet to encounter the cassette minions 2-packs, though. As for the main event: I'm still debating whether or not I should unbox this bad boy...


- War for Cybertron Siege Micromasters 10-Pack: these are just recolors of already-released Micromasters... none of which I've bought until now. A few of them pair off and combine into some neat-looking laser guns and swords.


- War for Cybertron Siege Mirage: originally, I just got him to keep Hound company... but he's startin' to grow on me.


- War for Cybertron Siege Springer: JER-RY! JER-RY! JER-RY! JER-RY!


ANYway, that's it for now; y'all have a good evening.

I opened up mine along with the mini cassettes. The did a fantastic job on the packaging though so I can see wanting to leave them packaged.  As for me, I wanted to play with them lol.

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49027019063_13cc78b9e7_b.jpg)


...but before we do that, check out this other TransFormers score I picked up from Savers a few days ago:

I also picked up this sweet-ass upgrade set for my Siege Leader-Class Optie:

Now where would this accessory go? Hmmm...



Oh yeah, I also found this:

What does the game's product number say about it's playibility level?



And even though it isn't a toy, this wonderfully whimsical art piece really spoke to me for some reason:

Eat your heart out, Da Vinci!



Another cool find-- that I ultimately decided not to buy-- was this Halloween-themed poop emoji thingy:

Alluva sudden, I have a hankering for orange sherbet soft-serve...



And now, a few upcoming playthings I'm looking forward to adding to my mighty menagerie:

I was wondering when ReAction would put out their take on the G1 TransFormers...


(http://www.thetoychronicle.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Super7-Robocop-featured.jpg)



(http://i2.wp.com/bloody-disgusting.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/DziL0eYW0AMszY3.jpg?ssl=1)



...and RoboCop, which includes three different RoboCops (regular, helmetless, battle-damaged), toxic-waste-melted Emil, the always popular ED-209, Kinney the ill-fated executive victim of ED-209, and-- the one I'm waiting for the most-- Bixby! Betcha can't guess how much I'd pay to buy a Bix figure...



(http://bloody-disgusting.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/maxresdefault-1.jpg)



On another note: why does each ReAction figure come with a disclaimer stating that it's "not a toy"? Ex-squeeze me?!


ANYway, let's get on with the main event--


(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49027019063_13cc78b9e7_b.jpg)


--oh, goshdarnit, I'm all out of time. I'm gonna hafta reveal my big score to you some other day; sorry 'bout that.

BTW if you're feeling anger and/or frustration over having to wait a day or two longer for the big reveal, just remember that it's all Shaggy's fault.

A Walmart reissue Optimus Prime, snatched from the clearance aisle.  They even put the clearance sticker on the bubble.  I removed most of the sticker, then got lazy, apparently.  Box is a bit rough, but I never had an original Optimus, just the Powermaster.  So, for $20, I picked it up.

They originally released it at around $50... which I thought was a bit of a rip. They probably could have moved a lot more if they added the trailer and gave it a $75-$80 price point.


ANYway, it's finally that time...for realsies. Let's do this!

Nice Omega Supreme, Zag.  Reawakens my itch to get Fortress Maximus, but I have to wait until the budget allows. 

$50 for the Optimus?  I thought the Rodimus was steep at $35.  While I definitely would have liked to see a trailer with it, I'm perfectly happy to have this Optimus on my shelf at this price.  I have the Generation 2 Optimus what came with the talk box if I get the urge to play in the sandbox.

He does indeed, my good man. Just like his G1 forebear, Siege Omega Supreme's wings transform into the tracks in his rocket base mode.

I've never had 2+ feet of thick, solid-fuel rocket
in my grip before... I feel so inadequate.


One bummer about this bad boy is that, unlike his G1 forebear, Siege O.S.'s tank isn't motorized. However, it's an even bet that there's some third-party outfit that's looking to rectify that little oversight.

I got a Japanese re-release G1 Optie tractor-trailer about a decade back; set me back about $85 all told. Pretty cool beans, lemme tell ya.

Hey, I thought that little guy looked familiar.  That's Countdown.  He's the commander of a Transformers toy near and dear to my heart:  The Rocket Base.  I may have to change my allegiance from Fortress Maximus to Omega Supreme since Omega here seems to have integrated elements from the Rocket base.

Great theatre on the Voltron of the Near Universe post, Zag.  I really love that piece, and if I didn't have an original Vehicle Voltron, I would probably hunt one down for myself.  A great piece to see.

I have a piece of my own to post, but I need a weekend from my weekend first.

Awesome Dairugger! 

Speaking of Voltron, I picked up 2 busted up black lions this past weekend.  Going to try and make 1 ok one out of them.  One is an original release and the one missing the head is the 97 re-release. Thinking I might just try and swap the re-release wings onto the original but I haven't decided what exactly to do yet.  Might be a big frakenstein buy the end.
