My poor civic was just costing me too much money and I had to trade her in. I don't know if a lot of you give your car a name because I do. My civic's name was Amber. The new an improved car of mine is now an SUV and her name is Veronica. Don't ask me why but there is something about "stripper" names that I just love! Of course I will be putting on the decepiticon symbol that I made several years ago. BUT the best part of having a new car is the new tech equipment that comes with it. I can sit here all day and tell you but it's not the point of my post. With my new vehicle you can have wallpaper as your screen. You can upload any image that is .jpg and is 1920x936. Here it is...
Of course everybody that I know, knows that I am obsessed with Transformers. You want to get me anything for whatever occasion it may be, get me something with Transformers. My brother and sister-in-law decided not to buy me something but to actually make it! When you look at this, you'll probably think that they bought it somewhere. NOPE! I've been watching them make these for other people (not Transformers related) and it is incredible!! I can't believe they took the time to make me this string art Autobot symbol! Thank you guys! I love you to death!!

Last week I received my two GT-R's that I have been patiently waiting since the first day I saw them! Let me tell you that it is NO comparison to Hasbro. I wish I had a little more money in my pocket because I would buy all my toys from Takara. They have the most amazing quality and detail I've ever seen for Transformers! Not only that, they use metal!!! When you pick one of these guys up you really feel that you have a nice piece of collectors item in your hand. You just want to buy more of them! I HIGHLY suggest that if you love the Altenity line from Takara that you have to get one of these. A little on the pricey side but it is well worth it! The Japanese anime girls are pretty cool but nothing that I'm in to. In the pic here is Optimus Prime and Saber.
Arrived Saturday was my Kreon Micro-Changer Series 02 - Case of 24 Blind-Bagged Figures!! They include:
Since I got a pack of 24. I'm selling the rest of them on Ebay. If you do the math. I get to keep 12 figures and you get to buy 12 figures. You are guaranteed 1 of each. Trust me I made sure the numbers are all there. I don't know if any of you figured it out but it is VERY easy to know if you aren't picking duplicates.

COMPLETE!!!! Finally, I found in great condition, and not an absurd amount to pay of Beastbox, Squawktalk, Grand Slam, and Raindance. All four of them are in beautiful almost mint, untouched condition. It has probably taken me a few years to get these little bad boys. I do have to say I'm a little disappointed that they are not metal? Why did they change that in 87' (Overkill and Slugfest) and in 88'? I will not display them as Squawkbox and Slamdance. They combine with one another and are twice the size they are in robot form. Honestly, they look a little cheesy and love them as their alternate forms much better. Plus, they will look better on my shelves next to the other cassettes. Next I have to gather them all up for a group photo!
Reprolabels have been very busy making stickers for my Kreon army. Just yesterday I received the 1st wave they have released. Superion, Galvatron, Quickslinger, and Sunstorm. Just by looking at the sticker sheets has made me so happy! I'm so excited because if you look at them and put them next to the G1 characters, you can see the similarities. It's awesome! oh the memories! It seriously reminds me of doing the same with my G1 guys. I'm already in love with this line and Repro has done a great job on making them that MUCH better to have on my shelf. I highly recommend them to anyone that is collecting the Kre-O Kreons. I can't wait to see who they are working on for the next wave.
Devastator is the first of my new acquisition of the Kreon Micro Changer Combiners. I also found Bruticus, Superion and Predaking. They are absolutely amazing! If you compare them to the G1 toys...it's pretty damn close! I have only one complain, that is they left out a 5th and in Devastator case, a 5th and 6th character. I'm ok with it only because they are shrunk down significantly so how would you be able to do it? I know that there is a way for me to get Blast off on Bruticus's right arm. The others, not so much! Anyways, I strongly suggest that any transformers fan should have these guys on their shelves. I'll have comparison pics soon. If you haven't seen them side by side then your mouth is going to drop when you see how great of a job Kre-O did in replicating their originals. Bravo Hasbro for FINALLY getting this done the RIGHT way!!
Masterpiece Rumble and Ravage!! They showed up at my door step last night as I was just pulling in the driveway!! As usual I don't have time to play with them but Rumble alone with his jack-hammer arms is simply amazing! True to the cartoon. I can't wait to open them up tonight!
I've been going pretty crazy with the new Beast Hunters line. I think it's great, new, exciting, and something different since the Beast Wars/Beast Machines era. There is a little resemblance of it. Beast Wars was a great compliment to the G1 cartoon. I think Hasbro needed it because G2 was not cutting it out. I think the same has happened. Nothing really has been good since the Generation/Universe lines. Of course this is all my opion because I value my collection a lot! When I look at it, the movie ones just are blah, the combiner series are just plain ole horrible! I bought 2 and got to got a present. I don't even want them on the shelf because they take up space that is needed for other plastic crack figures, like my Kreon army.
