ROTF Blazemaster.
 

No longer looking for RID Dreadwind, but I still need Smokejumper. I'm also in need of Mammoth Nemesis Prime's tail piece, as my figure lacks it. Send me a PM.

Bought a second-hand Alternators Meister at Long beach Comic Con for $25. It's in excellent condition, except for a very tiny chip at the front of the hood panel, and it includes the gun. No instructions or box. Though I can always print out the instructions online.

Crap. I wish I bought more alternators back when they were cheap.

Hunting for in-movie characters, so I bought ROTF Jolt and the Fallen. A nice side is that the price for Voyagers had dropped a bit. Saw Mixmaster and Stratosphere, but they fail to impress me. (Mixmaster, for one, I'm waiting for the green-and-purple repaint).

The Fallen is an okay toy. Nothing special. BUT I LIKE HIM! He needs a staff...

Haven't opened Jolt yet.

Got the G1 colored ultra Powerglide, even though I have the first release. I swapped the clear blue engine parts with the orange ones from the white Powerglide, and they both look better for it.

I also saw the repaint of ROTF Sideways, and the black with red stripes looks awesome. I was tempted to pick it up, but no.

The single-packed version of the previously K-Mart 12 pack exclusive Mini-Con Bodyblock.

YES, THEY EXIST!

Just picked up four ROTF figs last night. First up is the Deluxe Gears. Totally a nostaligic choice. G1 Gears was my first TF as a kid, yadda yadda...

Then an interesting trio of Scouts.

Ejector and Scalpal!

And Dune Runner, the surprise of this batch! Bought completely on impulse, but I'm really liking this one. And I hope the odds are good that the inevitable redeco will be an Outback homage!

I already consider him to be a Outback homage. Not the right colors I know, but the Bio's right.

Anyways I picked up RotF Jolt the other day.
Good figure for the bot with no lines.

Got classics Ultra Magnus & Skywarp from BBTS. Pretty spendy, though.

Here it is, the next day, and my Henkei classics Jetfire and Ramjet have arrived from ToyArena.

Now the day after that, and I got ROTF leader Jetfire, who is pissing me off, and the Ice Cream Truck twins. At stinkin Walmart.

Picked up Thrust a day or two ago. After months of hunting down the Breakaway mold, I finally got it in a sexy red/purple color. If you were turned off by the original's color scheme, pick this guy up. The mold is fantastic. The jet mode has almost ZERO kibble.


The robot mode is a bit of a mixed bag. The head is articulated, but unless you have tiny fingers, good luck moving it.



The waist has a full 360 degree joint HOWEVER due to the bar connected to the waist that clips in on the back the joint is rendered useless. The legs however are fantastic, with TRIPLE jointed ankles.



Great mold, and I'm hoping that it gets another repaint in the future... maybe Sunstorm or a new Ramjet?

ROTF Arcee and Swerve last Sunday.
Saw ROTF Supreme Devastator and have decided not to buy him based on the fact that he is $170 AUS!, massive and the fact the individual vehicles don't have robot modes to warrant a purchase.
 

Destruction is my specialty

Found and picked up RotF Leader Jetfire at my local Walmart yesterday.
Got The City Commander Accessory kit on order with BBTS too. Hopefully it actually comes out this month.

Well, I caved and went out and bought Deluxe Jolt. And I'm glad I did. Although he looked cool for the 3 seconds he was onscreen in robot mode, the car was a big selling point to me. I had thought the robot mode looked a bit second-rate in photos (hence how long it took me to actually buy him), but he's actually got a superb robot mode (as ever, Hasbro photographers did not do him any favours! By the Great Mongoose, they should give the toys to people who know how to transform a Transformer and how to pose!).

Very very pleased indeedy. Nice, well-thought-out simple transformation, amazing poseability, great moulded detail (if lacking a few paint apps - a theme running through this line, bar Mixmaster who seems to have gotten every colour he could have requested...), and bulky to boot.

Picked up Breakaway. I love how the one mold I was waiting for wouldn't show up until I found it's repaint..

I could use the big green guy behind Thrust and Deadpool, Long Haul... He's the only Constructicon I've yet to have.

Anyway, I went out shopping for a new mouse, but I also got ROTF Arcee.

Unemployment really really sucks, I mean I've only been out of work a month or two but it's getting really deppressing. Thanks to expenses such as driving lessons and food and my EMA only covering half of that I have pretty much no money so I can't buy TFs, go out, get new clothes etc and it's driving me up the wall!

Fortunatley I remembered I have a savings acount that I hardly touch because my local Halifax branch are never any help so it comes in handy for emergencies such as needing money for a trip to London next week

So anyway TRU are having a Transformers sale so I was able to accidentally buy my first TFs in ages (oops). Classics Blades at half price and ROTF Bludgeon and Whirl at a tenner off! I'm pretty sure thats the same as finding twenty quid on the floor so it's good fo me! Go check out the sale.
