Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Kingdom Galvatron Only thing I'm not massively fond of are the guns that look like the spaceship from the film. I'd rather have had the blaster, or nothing, really because it's not like Galvatron needs a gun with that massive cannon on his arm. I'm not sold on the ship guns myself. They're kind of ...

"Which one?"

"Yes."
Exactly the thing I was going for.

But more seriously, not gonna do a zoom thing as I generally don't do video calls.
And not going to try hunting down a tiktok as I'm too lazy to do so. Also I don't use tiktok. Yes, I'm boring.

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Kingdom Galvatron Mildly surprised to have been able to find one today, and fortunate that mine has the properly assembled shoulders. He looks better than the initial pictures that popped up a few months back. Easily the best Galvatron we've gotten thus far, though considering the competition that ...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Got my first darting today. Been about 3 hours and no adverse effects yet. Thinking I'm calling off from work tomorrow as a precaution. Don't need to wake up in the morning feeling like hell and having to fumble around for the phone to put in off. Can't wait for enough people to be suitably vaxxed u...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Earthrise Leader Optimus Prime : Snagged this from an Ollie's (an American discount chain). Not a figure I had any real interest in getting at regular retail price, as I have more than enough G1-style Primes, but was an instant get at $20. Prime turned out to be better/cooler than I was expecting. ...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Not sure if the account I've just removed with a load of COVID denying bullshit was a bot or a person, but the phrase "face diaper" clinched it. I'm inclined to say person, as they had made a reply or two in other threads that looked legit. Either way the post here had to go. That was bullshit stac...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Siege Omega Supreme Missed this the first time around for varying reasons, so snagged a preorder when BBTS put one up for it again. Finally arrived today. Hims a big chonky boy. But seriously, Omega's a little bit bigger than I expected. Hell, the rocket portion of the alt mode is surprisingly tall...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I've had some thought that they like to figure out the masterpiece design first, then walk it back for regular retail stuff. Hot Rod, Beast Wars Megatron, G1 Inferno and Grapple, etc. A lot of the visual design study seems to carry over, at least. Having just gotten a Kingdom Cyclonus today and giv...

Re: [The video game thread]

The recent news that Blizzard is going to be tarting up Diablo II and rereleasing it for a quick cash grab did very little to make me want to actually buy it, but it did a great job of getting me to install the actual D2 and LoD on my new computer and start busting heads with a Paladin. I'm not sur...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Studio Series 86 Scourge : I was surprised to find one of these earlier today, being that every other time I found anything from this line it was a lone Hot Rod. This is easily the best toy of the ol' flying bathtub they've made, and likely will be the best unless/until they're crazy enough to desi...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Carrying on from the previous comment, Convobat looks like he'd have the same potential wing issue. It's got the same material clash as Mindwipe. And both my Convobat and Mindwipe have the same loose ankles, so I expect that's endemic to the mold. And I have also opened my Legends Black Convoy. The ...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

That's weird. Just gave mine a look and the wing hinges appear fine.
I wonder if Convobat has the same potential problem. I'll have to look if/when I get to cracking that one open.

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Titans Return Mindwipe, and Wolfwire. Careful with these. Weirdwolf's basically guaranteed to have a part break around the cockpit, though it's mostly cosmetic because the piece is made of two different materials. Mindwipe's wings may also become very fragile over time, though it's not clear what p...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

So, carrying on from my prior comments about having a backlog of stuff, here's the list of stuff that I remembered existed by virtue of finally opening them. Combiner Wars Skywarp Titans Return Brainstorm, Chromedome, Highbrow, Hot Rod, Mindwipe, Misfire, Perceptor, Sergeant Kup, Slugslinger, Topspi...

Kingdom Optimus Primal: Well, being that I got T-Rex, I had to get Monkey to go with him. And basically everything I said about Megatron applies here too.

Ooooohhh, okay. I completely misunderstood.

How long has this pile been accumulating?
A little over 3 years, at least. It's not everything I've acquired in that time span though. For completely arbitrary reasons, some things have been opened and found space for.

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Kingdom Megatron (BW): Having never owned any of the previous renditions of BW Megatron's T-Rex form, I figured I had to snag this one today when I found it. Really solid representation of the character. Transformation and posability seem pretty good. Feels a little small for a Leader, in my view. ...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Oh, there's lots of ways to do it. Obviously you could do the usual subgroups or toyline groupings, but the sky's the limit, really. I tried color coding this summer, which is a neat effect. If the shelf is six feet wide, you could order them from shortest to tallest. If you've got multiple copies ...
