I haven't bought any transformers in a while, but I've been looking in my local Woolworths regularly just waiting for the economy to catch up with them . . .

The last week I got:

Universe Ironhide, Silverstreak and Sideswipe.

Pretty good week I'd say. :)

Hi! Got uni. Silverstreak at Wal mart, and, like my new Sideswipe, its joints were loose and certain parts won't fit together right. Looks like a trend is developing. I picked up the Megatron origin comic at Barnes & Noble, too.

Just picked up Ani Sentinel Prime last night, but I haven't had a chance to mess with him yet.
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.

That's ironic, I picked up The TickSentinel Prime's co-sell, Animated Swoop, today. Here he is with SnarlSlag and Grimlock:

I might just be willing to do the modification to the flail.
Got a complaint?

I picked up The Dirge and Roadbuster two pack today along with Movie Scout Armorhide and Storm Surge. Both with the intentions of changing them into Huffer(maybe) and Seaspray.

Like them all. No real complaints.

Got movie Mudflap from TRU today after missing his Cybertron incarnation. He's a very loud toy.

Picked up Universe Sideswipe today. Great toy, but seeing as I own Sunstreaker already, nothing I wasn't expecting.

On a short trip to Las Vegas (amongst gambling and drinking) I made a point to pick up a TF while there, and I got the Universe Special Team Leaders pack. Only just opened it late last night, haven't had a chance to fiddle with them, but they're pretty awesome. Plus, I don't currently own (until now) any one of the molds in the set...

Universe Classics Deluxe Silver... no, it's Bluestreak damnit. Now hopefully the next wave will make appearance on these shores

Found Animated Jetfire/Jetstorm/Safeguard yesterday, and promptly snapped him up (there were ten or so others on the shelf). Only to have him promptly taken from my grasp and told by my boyfriend that I can have him on Christmas day.

Got Wave 4 of Universe.

Hound is solid and actually my favorite of the wave.
Ravage is a bit loose, but it may just be mine.
Cyclonus is intimidating, but lacks posability.
Cheetor I'll cover in my review.

Got the Dirge/Roadbuster pack from Target and Movie Leader Desert Brawl and Animated Leader Megatron from Amazon, my first online purchases. :D

I traded my Zoids collection for Transformers with a lady on ebay. They just came in monday and include:
Armada Unicron
Cybertron Primus
Cybertron "God" Starscream. Ya know the big one.
Cybertron Galvatron
Cybertron Optimus Prime
Cybertron Nemisis Breaker
Cybertron Cryo Scourge
Cybertron Dark Crumplezone
Movie Leader Optimus
Movie Leader Megatron
Movie 70's Camero Bumblebee
Movie Barricade
Movie Starscream "G1 Repaint"
Movie Cyberstomping Bumblebee


I can't stand the Cybertron line but I got them for free(minus the cost to ship my zoids) Mostly went with the trade for Unicron and Primus... and spare parts.

Unfortunantly many are missing parts.
Unicron is missing a wing connector and 2 missiles. Optimus is missing a wing from the trailer and all his missiles... in fact almost all of them are missing their missiles... Primus has no index fingers and Crumplezone has no hands at all!

But all in all It was a good trade...

Managed to pick up Universe Ironhide today. He's got the blue face, which I will have to remedy, but other than that, I like him. He's proportioned kind of oddly, but he still looks cool.
