About a month ago I was grocery shopping in Shaw's. As I was checking out my food I saw a display of Optimus Prime! It's one of those that has the Blu-Ray/DVD holder. Anyways, I asked the kid behind the register what they do with them after they are done. He called his manager and she was so nice to say that I could put my name on the back with my phone number and they would call me when they are done with it. I walked away all happy and so excited! At the same time I was like "come on, Pete, you really think you're going to get a call for that?" Totally killed myself ha! 5 weeks go by...I'm in and out of Shaw's every week. Didn't even think twice every time I looked at it. Yesterday, got a phone call. "Come pick up your Optimus Prime Display!"
Finally after waiting for 4 years I got a hold of Alternators Rodimus! I've had my eye on him for a while but just couldn't find him. I mean for a reasonable price...I was not looking to spend $100 when I could get him for half that! He now is in my possession.............YES!!!!!
Overall he is very detailed. Love the visor that goes up and down on his helmet! Mold is great! The car is just sexy all on it's own. License plate is awesome..... "Too Hot" It's probably on my top 5 Rodimus's of my collection.
You know most kids dream wanting to be a cop, firefighter, fly air planes, being a doctor. When we get older all that just fades away. We look and see what they are doing and say why in hell do I want to go into a burning building?? (That's me any ways) I had a dream to become a vet. I LOVE animals! I couldn't do it because with the good comes the bad. I have a soft, warm heart and just can't see them go through pain. So I decided to work in manufacturing. Anyways, I'm getting off track now. My current dream other than being married, house, kids, and "big boy" toys, I want a gold plated Transformer! Lucky Draw...They make them VERY VERY limited. Less than a 100. In this case they are only releasing 10! It's on my list next to owning a Lamborghini.
Transforming Cross Stitched Transformers...what an incredible idea! I'll be asking my sister in law to be making these for a Christmas. She is very very crafty and I can see her making me something like this. Only tricky part is how the hell did he get them to transform too!???

It's about time! It's said that he is going to be his original colors from the anime series! I can NOT wait! I have the greenish blue ugly looking one but it's not the same. Growing up everybody knows Starscream as the red, gray/white, and blue airplane. It's nice to see that Takara finally woke up to produce a more G1 accurate Starscream. Hasbro did....
He's slated to be released March of 2012. He comes with a crown, cape, shoulder armor, and a pilot.
SO I just received an email from BBTS stating this:

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 900+ 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.
