As of yesterday we finally got a full look of Power of the Primes Predaking! He is my second most anticipated combiner in the whole Combiner Wars/Titans Return/Power of the Primes series. Devastator of course is by far my favorite combiner through all the years. I'm super stoked to have him in my possession!
One thing that I've noticed with all of the combiners being released is that they don't have their weapons!! Where is his large gold sword???!!! I'm sure a 3rd party like Perfect Effect will come out with one, but really Hasbro!! I was definitely disappointed in Grimlock, who becomes Volcanicus that he didn't get his flame sword! Perfect Effect came through once again to give him that Grimlock retro look he deserves. No matter what Predaking will end up next to the rest of my combiners.
When I first laid eyes on the sneak peek pics I wanted him immediately. I just couldn't wait for him to be released. The masterpiece collections are far superior to any other line of transformers. Any collector should have them part of their collection. Sun streaker is definitely one of those "must-have" transformers.
He is amazing awesome!! Takara hit him right now, and then some. I can not believe the detail. One thing that I've been nervous about for the past few masterpieces is that they are super sensitive. DO NOT pull or push on any of the parts. This one especially since they have plastic piece between certain jobs so that they don't rub. It appears that they are painted surfaces that could chip off if not transformed correctly. All said and done...BUY IT!!
All my masterpieces are labeled with Toyhax stickers. They give them the childhood feeling of the G1 look.
I know I'm a few days late to this but.....YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!
Let's break it down for a bit. Lettering is the most notable change. It's totally different than the "transformers script" in the previous 4 movies.
Who is the last knight? It appears that the sword that is in the title is the one that Optimus found on the alien ship. I'm guessing he is the last knight?! But it can't be because he ends up in Age of Extinction heading into space looking for its owner. hmmmm......Let the hunting begin.
As life takes me from place to place, it gets a lot more exciting. This is my 3rd house that I've owned and all 3 times I've had a chance to display my prize possessions. Now I've only had "The Vault" to show off my life gathering of plastic crack; never a 2nd half of a house. Let me start by saying that I have the most amazing wife. Not only is she into my greek-ness; she invites it into the house. She is a Star Wars fan so of course I had to incorporate some of that into the geek cave.
Most of the pics I have below are self explained. Let me explain what is going on over the couch...ALL LEGOS/KREONs!! Two outside larger displays are all transformers, and all the ones in the middle that have the red background are Star Wars/Marvel/DC/Turtles/Clash of Clans/Game of Thrones. Basically, it's the rest of my favorite super hero/comic things. Best way to display them is using LEGOS!
Since our last post; I've made significant progress. I have a new couch coming in today to tie the room up together. I have tons of Transformers/Star Wars/Marvel/DC toys and memorabilia that is ready to be displayed and hung up. I've been collecting them for the past few months in preparation for this weekend. I know you are thinking "why does he have all that non-transformer crap?" Well, not only do I love transformers, I'm totally into Marvel/DC. My wife is a Star Wars that is obsessionally obsessed! The deal is that I would put a few of that in my "geek" cave. No biggie, it's actually really awesome stuff. Unfortunately, the vault has taken a back seat to get my geek cave in perfect condition. That room is such a mess and extremely overwhelming now that I basically just threw everything in there. Good thing is I have plenty of time to get them displayed correctly. I'll have pics up soon so I can show you guys the disaster! Until then, enjoy your weekend, and keep your transformaniac-ism tuned in!
We recently bought a house for ourselves. We needed something to raise our little girl in, rather than a 2 family. Now that I am all moved in, I have an entire basement to myself. It's going to take a little while to get it up and going. But mainly, I have a separate room for the "plastic crack" toys. It's coming along VERY nicely! Along with a new room comes new updated pics of all my G1 toys! YES!! Finally, I can transform, take pics, and transform again! It'll probably be the last time in my life time I ever do this, especially to these particular toys. I have old beat ones that my daughter can play with. I'm nervous as it is since they are over 25 years old now. Enough rambling. I present to you my G1 Optimus Prime:
For the past 3 weeks or so I've been working on a pretty complicated and tiny project. They are called Metal Earth by fascinations. You build little 4" transformers, about the size of Legends, out of metal! They are the most fascinating thing ever invented! (No pun intended lol) They do require a lot of patience and time. You need to use your imagination in rounding the metal piece where needed. Lots of bending and tiny, tiny little tabs that hold it all together. No glue required. Right now they have Optimus, Soundwave, Bumblebee, and Megatron released. I'm sure they will have lots more coming. I have half way done with Soundwave at home. At work, I just completed Optimus. I'm VERY impressed in the quality, and most of all the detail is amazing! G1 Optimus all the way!
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??
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.
