Yesterday I was on my way over to Toys R Us to check out new plastic crack arrivals that I've heard that FINALLY showed up. I've been hunting down the Prime and War of Cybertron figures. So I walk in there and it's a complete disaster. Like a little 5 year old went in there and touched every single toy and just threw it where ever he wanted. Oh, I oughtta.... After I got over my hissy fit, I started searching through. I saw that there were generations figures still out for sale. I didn't even think twice and continued on looking at the Prime and War of Cybertron piles. Then this happened...
For those of you that know about transformers...These can ONLY be bought in the Asia market at Toys R Us.
I live in the US and bought Asia toys?? I couldn't believe my eyes when I seen them!! It's funny because I didn't noticed until the guy at the register couldn't ring them up. (completed missed the asia marking all over the packaging) Duh!! He had to use another one ( Wheeljack) to get me the correct price. Little does he know that I'm laughing on the inside "hey buddy, these are Asia toys, it's not going to work however many times you scan it!" hahaha
STEAL OF THE MONTH!!!!! Ya Buddy!!
I love this figure! I think he's the best of the microchangers line thus far. He is one of the best characters in the Beast Wars line. Poor bastard was always getting destroyed or demolished and would come back as if nothing happened in the next episode. He talked in third person, which was VERY amusing! I'm cracking up now remembering him in those episodes hahaha! The memories of being a young, naive teenager...
" Waspinator not want to be destroyed! Waspinator has plans"
Look who joined the group yesterday!
Hopefully, we will see Ramjet, Dirge, and Thrust to complete the seekers set...
I'll have better pics of Sunstorm in alt and bot mode soon. I needed to get them all together first. Oh the excitement!
Leader of the Decepticon Headmasters.
A Triple Changer, Scorponok's primary alternate mode is a giant scorpion, other mode is a defense base, stocked with with assorted tracking and communication equipment, repair and constructicon bays, as well as unlimited amounts of weaponry. His base mode is patrolled by Fasttrack, a partially autonomous armoured vehicle that can transform into a robot mode armed with twin photon cannons. G1 Scorponok is gigantic! He has to be the largest G1 transformer that I own. May have to put him up against Predaking and Trypticon to see who holds that title. Unfortunately, I do not own Fortress Maximus, otherwise we wouldn't be having this discussion.
My thoughts on little Scorponok. Like the other Kre-O characters from the blind packaging deal, he has different hand connectors to his body. He also has translucent parts. There seems to be a lot of translucent stuff in this line. I LOVE TRANSLUCENT STUFF! I'm a grown ass man, but I'm not afraid to admit that I am transfixed by translucent toys.
Scorponok's two builds are kind of unique. He definitely has some real pop with his claw hands and stinging tail.
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.
