Got Rescue Ratchet. Very cool figure, though lacking in detail. I'll be painting in some black and silver to take care of that, though :)

Only figure left from the movie line I want is Premium Jazz. Is he good? In comparison to the other figures, that is.

The Jazz mold is pretty decent. His arms are kind of fiddly, but the Premium paint scheme makes up for it.
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.

Recent acquisitions for me if anyone cares reading about them:
  • Comic-Con Exclusive Classics Nemesis Prime (blue windows FTW)
  • Comic-Con Exclusive 6" Titanium Skywarp
  • BT Arcee (actually, she's quite a nice figure)
  • Break (the penguin)
  • G1 Ramhorn (my Blaster finally has a tape!)
  • Knock-Off Tigatron that's signifcantly bigger than BW Cheetor (regular Cheetor, no Transmetals)
  • Universe 2.0 Tankor
  • Universe 2.0 Galvatron (I actually like this Galvatron figure)

Thanks, Zeeks! Great job! :up:

The Jazz mold takes a little getting used to, as he doesn't really have lower arms like you'd expect from most others. But the most odd thing about him is that he has no midsection. The upper torso attaches directly to his waist. On the nice points, Premium is the best for display with all the painstaking details picked out, which really should have been on the original release. And the Automorph is subtle, but very effective! (and works!) He's not as great as some of the other Deluxe figures, but well worth getting!:D

OK, now for the real reason I posted here. (and to not derail any further) I got Animated Grimlock and Slag (AKA Snarl) yesterday in Wal-Mart. Opinions will be posted in another thread.:)
Got a complaint?

After a couple days worth of debating with myself, I bought Universe Powerglide (rather than Silverbolt) at an Ohio TRU. Pretty cool.

Also, I know this doesn't belong here, but I ordered a CM's Corp. Brave Gokin Genesic Gao Gai Gar. It was on sale for 14,000 yen, or I probably wouldn't've. I'm excited!

Well, the title of this thread suggests otherwise!:D

Ahh, right...the title doesn't say they have to be newest Transformers aquisitions, but I think they typically are supposed to be, ha.

I'll talk more about it once I have it, in the "Other Toylines" part of the forum. Maybe...

A cheap-but-fun, store-bought one, or one of the professional-grade ones I used to spend way too much money on and always seemed to break?

Just ordered Masterpiece Megatron from BBTS and Animated Soundwave from Hasbrotoystore.com.

Also got Lockdown but it's a gift for a friend.
All that was needed was a catalyst and the machines of war are set in motion.

My Takara classics Astrotrain came today and I really like it a lot. If only I could read Japanese then I could undrstand the comic.

Aaagh brain ache! I don't know any German. But that's mostly because I figured Spanish would be more useful. :D

I've learned a bit in my days as a Pro Yu-Gi-Oh! Player. Also a bit of Japanese and a bit of French.

The only part of that I don't quite get is in the second line...what is "halten Sie" doing in there?

The rest, though having a couple little problems, I believe I understand and I won't start an argument on here because you may very well speak it better than I do.

I said I only know a BIT. Most of that was by Google Translator.
