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 ...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

So... having added a 6ft stretch of shelving to a wall, I now have room to open and put out stuff I've had sitting around in boxes. Stuff that's been piling up since at least as far back as Fall 2017. I still need to figure out what gets priority for hitting the shelf, what gets skipped for now and ...

Hard Hero Unicron Statue: I've been wanting one of these since it was revealed as a Botcon exclusive back in 2002 and I finally managed to acquire one recently. It's as big, stupid and cool as I expected. Unfortunately it has to remain boxed up as I nowhere approaching a suitable place for it, espe...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

All this talk of Misfire is reminding me I have him and a bunch of other Titans Return stuff still in it's packaging sitting in a box or two because I have nowhere to put them. I really need to go through that stuff and see what I have and if I can make room for it anywhere I've got a lot of time f...

Smallest Transforming Soundwave - After being reminded of the line's existence by the recent World's Smallest versions of Prime, Bee and Starscream, I went decided to look for some of the old Smallest Transforming stuff from back around 03. Finally got a Soundwave. It's actually a little bit bigger ...

Re: [The video game thread]

While I still haven't gotten the one I really want to get(Macross Delta. Not because it's horribly expensive, but because only half the game is on the cart. The rest of it is DLC. It's free, but I don't know if a US PSN account will be able to download Japanese PSN DLC). Not sure how helpful this i...

Kit-Kats are my preferred chocolately treat. I have to give myself primary consideration as I rarely have trick-or-treaters and have to eat the candy all myself. That should be the primary litmus test for Halloween candy in general and this year especially: Is it something that'll get eaten if ther...
