Fantastic! As a gamer this is a dream come true. Never would have thought in a hundred years I'd see a transforming playstation, let alone optimus prime! Takara has been impressing me since they started the whole masterpiece line. It's one thing after another...Hasbro where are you??
I finally got a chance to take a few pictures of my updated Toyhax labels. We will start with Masterpiece Wheeljack. His alt mode got the biggest update, making him not worth having without the stickers.
First off, changed the name from "alitalia to alitalla (G1 resemblance) to the entire car. Front, both sides and the wing. Added the Autobot symbol to the front spoiler. Sponsors on the front hood to the left and right.
Sponsor stickers all around. Front side hood, side door is just full of it. Back side. Best of all, I decided to add the rub sign exactly where the G1 wheel jack is. For this masterpiece he really needed that it, for that G1 look.
Rear has enhancement on the lights and of course, a vanity license plate.
In bot mode he got just a couple of stickers on his wrists and inside elbows.
Overall, just a stunning masterpiece and Reprolabels just made it one of the best ever printed! HIGHLY recommend both MP Wheeljack and the Reprolabels to go along with him. I can't stop staring at him every time I enter "the vault".
Because I NEED to have my Combiner Wars to be complete with the RIGHT guys, I had to buy Quickslinger (Slingshot)and Brake-Neck (Breakdown). I don't understand why they had to change their names but they will always be Slingshot and Breakdown to me! These guys are apprenently a limited quantity that you will not find at any Target, Toy R Us, or Walmart. From what I have seen you can only get them online through Robotkingdom.com and most recently post is Amazon.com. I got mine from Robotkingdom and came immediately last week. Not only did both Transformers come in but it came with a sticker sheet that I had seen online a while ago. Before Reprolabels, I said I had to have it but had no way of obtaining it. I gave up and Reprolabels released a ton of stickers for the Combiner Wars series. Of course, I have them all in my possession waiting patiently to be applied. I compared the two and said there is no need for the Hasbro sticker sheet. Reprolabels has done a way better job in the detail and placement of the stickers that I am going to pass on using Hasbro's. With that said, I have them up on Ebay. Please check out my auction. Click here for the following link. Happy Bidding! I am going to post what they look like so you don't waste your time if you aren't interested.
I'm still alive and collecting like crazy! Life with a 1 year has consumed every waking up moment that I have had. Especially planning for a 1 year birthday party for your dautghter. Now that time is back in my hands a bit, I can get back to my passion. Of course, I haven't stop buying plastic crack. It hasn't been as fun because I've been buying and they go straight to "The Vault." Also, my new obsession is Reprolabels. Wow, what a difference will your classics/generations look after applying these stickers! Right now masterpiece Ultra Magnus is getting an uplift. I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED this set from them. I can't wait to put pics up of him before and after. You will fall out of your chair. Of course, if you haven't bought or seen what he looks like with Reprolabels on him. I bought my first few of the combiner wars. Now here's the thing with this line...When I think of combiner wars, I think of only all the combiners. Nope, they have to release more Optimus's/Megatron's/Thundercracker's/Etc....Well, I'm not! I am strictly going for all the combiners. I'm dying to have these massive deluxe combiners on my shelves next to my generations/classics lines! It's about time Hasbro!! Devastator looks sooooooooooooo incredible! He is going to be steep money but he will be worth every penny! Him next to my Generations Metroplex is going to take up a ton of space (drooling).
I'm not sure how many people buy reprolabels stickers. I'm a huge fan of them. I saw with their last update with the Kre-O cassettes and immediately bought them! Not realizing until I had them in my possession that there were two pages full of characters I've NEVER heard of! Sundor was the only one other than your popular Frenzy, Buzzsaw, Ratbat, etc. I started to look them up online and read a bit about them just out of curiosity. Come to find out these were real toys that were special releases. I've always wanted Sundor. I found the only one on Ebay and he came with Gilt and Rosanna as a "KISS PLAYERS" package. No idea. Japanese animated chicks with a CD of songs. Big deal! I wanted my plastic crack!
Here's a little sneak peak of what showed up yesterday.
I will let the pics speak for this one. Like my previous post...BUY IT!
...and by the way, you can click on the images to make them bigger now! Finally figured out how to do that.
When I first laid eyes on this beauty, I pre-ordered it immediately!! Waiting patiently for a couple of months to add it to my collection. FINALLY! Yesterday I received it in the mail. Here is what I think of it:
It's all plastic, a little disappointed because it looked like it would have some metal to it. Not one piece. Detail is amazing. Right down to Optimus's face. Grimlock has some sharp ass teeth. Definitely not recommended for kids. It's a little bendy. Like Optimus's sword, his shield, and Grimlock's arms. One bad pull and they are off. I think it's great. I love the detail. The most amazing part of the movie scene is now in my collection. Of course, you get the blu ray copy of the movie. For $74.99 I think it's the best deal you'll get if you want to buy the movie. The blue ray copy alone is $34.99. Why not pay the extra $40.00 and get your self a sweet ass statue to add to your collection. I ripped this off Amazon but I'll get better pics of my own pretty soon.
