    Man the amount of dust my transformers have gathered is ugh. Took me more than a day to really get in there and clean them up. Waiting on some figures to come in and that might be if for a while I'm out of space.


    Yup. I LOVE TFs but always strive to have a more adult "optimized collection". AKA: No side fluff.

    As a TF fan, i have an appreciation for just about everything that gets released. Everything has it's cool points. However, if i bought them all, i'd have figures stacked top-to-bottom in my whole apartment and it would just be obnoxious. So i try to limit it to those characters and their iterations i really like.

    Example: I really, REALLY liked what they did with Titans Return Soundwave. But since i already have both Masterpeice and G1 Soundwave, which is about as good as it gets for that character, i can't justify the $$ or space for the TR release.

    Yea, I've been collecting Generations/Classics for 11 years and despite some cool updates, I cant afford to buy everything lol.

    I rarely buy more than one "version" of a character unless the former version was really bad. (Universe Galvatron 2008) says hi)

    I like buying figs mostly of G1 characters I never had as a kid (Which is a lot)

    Exceptions

    Optimus - I have MP-10 and the Classics 2006 mold
    Megatron - I have the 2006 NERF Voyager and the Combiner Wars Leader(Which I use as a pseudo MP since its a relatively big figure)
    Galvatron - Universe 2008 Galvatron broke on me and so I bough the recent TR Galvatron. While the head sucks, its a MASSIVE improvement over the previous iteration.
    (Interestingly the head sculpt on the figure was great with a crappy body, and the new figure is the opposite case.)

    I pretty much don't have the same figures outside of Soundwave, Superion, and Bruticus and some masterpiece counterparts.

    I will say this I loved the seeker mode and collected pretty much all of those from the original to the rainmakers repaints that came out a few years back.

    Anyone know who this 3rd party bot is supposed to be? Made by DX9. I assume it's their take on some character, like their TF releases, but don't recognize it.

    Looks like it came from an anime:

    Naaa. There have been a few others. Coincedentally, one of which was a recolor of Kup.

    I really just want the redeco of the WFC mold. The Kup mold is cool, but I like the Generations look a bit better.

    Always loved Rodimus Prime! Glad to see a new version. The moment i saw the new Rodimus, my wallet shuddered in fear.

    Same goes for that Skullgrin! He was always my favorite Decepticon pretender. Looking at the G1 original in box on my shelf right now.

    The Zeta Aerialbots looks pretty damned good...and the X-Transbots Stunticons Cars are only $40! The DX9 Stunticons are about the same height as the MP Seekers, but their car modes COMPRESS so that they are scale size to the autobot cars in vehicle mode. It looks freaking AMAZING.

    Found Twintwist and Misfire at local Target!!!!

    My target is weird. The selection is sparse but, that's usually where i find new stuff. My wal-mart always has a lot but, the same figures warming the shelves.

    Looking at Misfire now. Damn. I remember everybody being nuts over the original classics line-up and alternators. Those were cool but they always ruined it by trying to "update" the bots. Such as different or modern altmodes.

    Titans Return is the first line to really nail it, and be the "G1 of my adulthood".

    I got the Optimus Prime evolution 2 pack (WFC repaint and TR Kup repaint with new head).

    It's a strange pairing because the WFC figure is a fair bit smaller than the Orion Pax figure. It's clear how far Hasbro has simplified their figures. The WFC mold came out in 2010 and just has so much more going for it. Two points of articulation that are absent are ankle joints and wrist swivel. I weighed the current and previous generations release of Orion Pax. While they weigh the same, the original release has more detail, doesn't appear as hollow, and better painted. It's clear the direction the line is going. Hasbro is trying to do more with less.

    That price is hella nice. Was planning on waiting for a KO, but I might have to jump on that.

    I'm assuming that you've ordered from them before. Are shipping costs pretty reasonable? That's the one thing I always hate about preordering stuff from JP sites.

    I'm looking forward to Zeta Toys Aerialbots. I'm probably going to order their Swindle before the week is out.

    Not personally, but know a lot of people that have. I order mine from AmiAmi.

    I don't know about y'all, but this is another pass, if I do say so myself. It's a AKOM based repaint (Rebirth) recolor of Hot Rod with the MP-09 US release Targetmaster. I like the first release colors better, and I sold the US MP-09 but kept the Targetmaster. I'm good on this one.

    Pretenders! Yes!

    Damn you Hasbro/Takara, for exploiting my G1 love.

    Edit: I may be alone in this but, screw you guys. I always thought Pretenders were a stylish gimmick back in the day. It was also fitting that the Autobots were humanoid looking, and the Decepticons were various fantasy monsters.

    Oh wow.... 3rd party, cartoon paint accurate, MP-Starscream. That doesn't cost an arm & a leg to get. Unlike the official releases.

    It looks OK. If you were just diving in, I could see why someone would prefer that over the original. Otherwise, I'm good with what I have.

    I got the BBTS Siege on Cybertron set today. All I wanted was Prime. Sold every figure sans Tidal Wave within 10 minutes of posting it. Tidal Wave will be the Quickswitch of this set.

    EDIT - Just got a buyer for Tidal Wave
