You can't tell me that he looks absolutely amazing with Toyhax stickers! He already had a lot of detail coming out of the box, but the purple accents make this figure just POP!
I've been playing Transformers Earth Wars (mobile game) for over 3 years now. Are you shocked that I'm playing it!? I've come a long way from the bottom to the best decepticon team in the game. During my journey I've meet a ton of friends, they come and go. But there is a group of 7 that basically have been through it all since the beginning. Along the way a group of TF collecting fanatics formed. Sharing everything across the board of any kind of action figure collecting (mostly plastic crack). In those discussions is a guy named meatbunny. Hilarious as can be! Kinda looks like a hillbilly terrorist. Hahaha!! He's going to kill me for saying that! He has read all comic books, and knows A LOT about what is coming, and going. He, and I get along great! He is one of the 7 close friends that we have become over the years. Well, Mr. Meat is getting back into his collecting obsession, and he's finding the Siege line well before me. He is ALWAYS showing off! I gotta admit it's a little aggravating when I'm searching 5 stores (I'm sure he is too), and he comes home, happy, and dancing, waiting to show off to me that he has all of wave 1, or 2.
The point of my story is to thank meatbunny for getting me back into the craziness of trying to complete a series. I haven't done this since the Cybertron years. Back in 2005!! Just haven't really liked the previous series to want them all.
Yesterday I made my way to Walmart with no intention of finding new TF's. I came away with all, but 1 of of wave 2 (missing Cybertron Galaxy Prime), including a studio series Optimus Prime from the Bumblebee movie. SUPER SCORE!!!
Wave 1 includes: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Hound, Sideswipe, Skytread, Cog
Wave 2 includes: Soundwave, Starscream, Prowl, Ironhide, Chromia, Sixgun
When I first layed eyes on this line I didn't think twice about it. I honestly thought Hasbro was going a little too far into drawing my attention for more plastic crack! The pics were OK when they were being released...I decided that while I was out shopping at my favorite store that I would take a peek. My TF friends online have been raving about them, and I totally ignored them. The minute I picked up Optimus I NEEDED to have him. The look in the box was magnificent, once I opened him up and actually transformed him...wow the quality is amazing! The best part of the Siege line is that Hasbro, and Takara have teamed up to produce the best quality of a transformer. Now I'm on the hunt to get them all! I've also been obsessed with ToyHax stickers. Here is my Optimus Prime.
Me? I'm a Transformaniac through and through. I've been collecting for over 20 years and my collection is starting to outgrow "The Vault"! I collect, maintain and refurbish my Transformers and I am always looking for new (and old) ones to add to my 1000+ plus collection. Feel free to check out my collection, as it's ever-growing and I'll be updating my blog with new Transformers as soon as I get them.
