Waiting oh so patiently for the triplets to show up at my front door step. Yesterday was that day! Now I don't own the original one (Gnaw) for some reason. He's only one of 7 transformers that I am missing to complete my 84' to 86' collection. I do not have pics of them just yet. Finding the time to setup and take pics has been a real hassle to me and I'm hoping I get that chance soon. I've been slacking severely in this dept.!
The box definitely suits who these little voracious creatures, swimming in the water with their beady eyes glowing! If you ask me, very, very creepy! As far as the toy it's self: Absolutely great! igear did a wonderful job of making them G1 perfect! They transform pretty simple. The detail could use some repro stickers as there is no decepiticon symbols anywhere. Obsessed with stickers these days! Like the original, the tail becomes a chain and ball. They come with guns, yup, I said guns! There is a large gun and a small gun.
So far from what I've been seeing out there, this 3 pack is the best made toys. I highly recommended if you are a transformaniac like me!
What's for dinner?
I want to let you guys know that I will be back to posting regular posts in January. I've had a lot going on the past 6 months. My collection definitely didn't stop though. New and new crack keeps coming in that have been piling up in "the vault" I've also been working on revamping the site. Best of all, me and my wife are proud to say that we have a baby girl coming to us in Feb 2014!! Life doesn't end but slows down significantly. I will still make it a point to post more and consistently next year. Last but not least, my room needs a little rearranging cuz I'm finally running out of room! Nothing major but enough that things have to move from place to place. Until then Have a nice and safe holiday and Happy new year to you all!!
My poor civic was just costing me too much money and I had to trade her in. I don't know if a lot of you give your car a name because I do. My civic's name was Amber. The new an improved car of mine is now an SUV and her name is Veronica. Don't ask me why but there is something about "stripper" names that I just love! Of course I will be putting on the decepiticon symbol that I made several years ago. BUT the best part of having a new car is the new tech equipment that comes with it. I can sit here all day and tell you but it's not the point of my post. With my new vehicle you can have wallpaper as your screen. You can upload any image that is .jpg and is 1920x936. Here it is...
Of course everybody that I know, knows that I am obsessed with Transformers. You want to get me anything for whatever occasion it may be, get me something with Transformers. My brother and sister-in-law decided not to buy me something but to actually make it! When you look at this, you'll probably think that they bought it somewhere. NOPE! I've been watching them make these for other people (not Transformers related) and it is incredible!! I can't believe they took the time to make me this string art Autobot symbol! Thank you guys! I love you to death!!
It's hanging on "The Vault" door before you enter...
Last week I received my two GT-R's that I have been patiently waiting since the first day I saw them! Let me tell you that it is NO comparison to Hasbro. I wish I had a little more money in my pocket because I would buy all my toys from Takara. They have the most amazing quality and detail I've ever seen for Transformers! Not only that, they use metal!!! When you pick one of these guys up you really feel that you have a nice piece of collectors item in your hand. You just want to buy more of them! I HIGHLY suggest that if you love the Altenity line from Takara that you have to get one of these. A little on the pricey side but it is well worth it! The Japanese anime girls are pretty cool but nothing that I'm in to. In the pic here is Optimus Prime and Saber.
COMPLETE!!!! Finally, I found in great condition, and not an absurd amount to pay of Beastbox, Squawktalk, Grand Slam, and Raindance. All four of them are in beautiful almost mint, untouched condition. It has probably taken me a few years to get these little bad boys. I do have to say I'm a little disappointed that they are not metal? Why did they change that in 87' (Overkill and Slugfest) and in 88'? I will not display them as Squawkbox and Slamdance. They combine with one another and are twice the size they are in robot form. Honestly, they look a little cheesy and love them as their alternate forms much better. Plus, they will look better on my shelves next to the other cassettes. Next I have to gather them all up for a group photo!
Devastator is the first of my new acquisition of the Kreon Micro Changer Combiners. I also found Bruticus, Superion and Predaking. They are absolutely amazing! If you compare them to the G1 toys...it's pretty damn close! I have only one complain, that is they left out a 5th and in Devastator case, a 5th and 6th character. I'm ok with it only because they are shrunk down significantly so how would you be able to do it? I know that there is a way for me to get Blast off on Bruticus's right arm. The others, not so much! Anyways, I strongly suggest that any transformers fan should have these guys on their shelves. I'll have comparison pics soon. If you haven't seen them side by side then your mouth is going to drop when you see how great of a job Kre-O did in replicating their originals. Bravo Hasbro for FINALLY getting this done the RIGHT way!!
