I promised that I would take the time and get some pics up of Chinese version MP GOLD looking Sideswipe. Here he is...gold as ever! I added reprolabels stickers to him to make him so much better!
I think I'm back for now. It has been a tough month or so with a new baby girl in my life. Blogging will be easier but taking pics is another challenge on it's own. Hopefully, as the weather is getting colder I will have much more time to sit in my basement and take pics of transformers that have recently been added to "The Vault".
Since my last post I've had my hands on:
Generations Rattrap - Can not say anymore that this is a perfect figure! To the point where my wife from far away thought it was a real rat lol!!
Generations Tankor - Honestly, my least favorite of the this line. Boring, plain, and nothing really to him. I only got him just to make sure I collect them all.
Generations Roadbuster - STICKERS!!! Big big fan of stickers. Great mold, great color scheme, very very close to his G1 roots. I don't own the original but now after having this one I have to get my hands on one.
Generations Sky byte - Colors on him are mesmerizing. love the yellow, teal, blue, grey, white look. Something about it just works. Of course the design/mold is right on. Excellent figure and should be added to all collections! Must have!
New to just a couple of days ago are:
Generations Crosscut - Redeco of Generations Skids. He has nice red shiny chrome.
Generations Jhiaxus - Redeco of Generations Armada Starscream but almost a total rehaul of him. Significantly changed. His 1st appearance wasn't until 1993 (G2) comics. I've known very little about him but I guess a lot of fans have been waiting a long time to finally get a figure. He is pretty sweet with bright orange colors.
Generations Nightbeat - another classic toy that has only been seen a coupe of times. I have him in a club exclusive that hasbro did a while back ago. Since then he hasn't been introduced to any line. His original was a headmaster but Hasbro did away with that in this figure. He is a redeco of bumblebee and goldbug.
Generations Wingblade - She is a very interesting figure because she was made for the fans, by the fans themselves! Hasbro had made up a poll of various questions, and two main ones were, it had to be a female and a jet. Really nice figure. I would definitely recommend picking her up, especially us fans demanded her! She carries a killer sword that I think Optimus or Megatron would be VERY jealous of!
I did something that I said I would NEVER do but he just was screaming buy me, buy me! I bought a KO version of MP Sideswipe...but before you start judging me, he is a full gold version! Seriously, if you put them up side by side, you can not tell the difference. The Chinese are incredible. Obviously, the plastic used is very cheap and he doesn't transform fully. I can't explain it but you can tell it's cheap. Hey, I paid $35 from china with free shipping!! Why not? I also added stickers and he looks pretty bad ass now! I will make sure that I get pics of him.
Oh and before I forget....In the mail right now is MP-20 Wheeljack!!! He should be arriving this weekend.
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.
