  1. ROTF Mindwipe with MAJOR props to Liege Evilmus for providing it.
  2. Picked up ROTF Leader Prime for $30 at the local Wal-Mart today. Now all I gotta do is repaint those stuck-out red parts silver/gray and I'll be good to go. Anyone have any recommendations for paint?
  3. $125 from selling old junk I don't need at a yard sale. Now I can get new junk I don't need!
  4. Was she traded up for the next best thing? Did you put her in different packaging and return her? You shoulda said something, I woulda bought her. Shes probably a TRU exclusive and thus, the difficulty in finding one. Damn scalpers. Nah man, I bet he got her from Amazon. *insert rimshot here*
  5. Gotta say, that's not a bad deal coming from a Chinese seller. Initial price was reasonable, i just wish shipping didn't cost so damn much.
  6. Found Scout Breakdown today while on vacation! Yay! Still no sign of Mindwipe or Skystalker though.
  7. Wait, isn't that ROTF Scout Brimstone? Where'd you find him?
  8. i picked up heartgold today. i read you can only lvl up once with the pedometer. BUT you can catch pokemon with it somehow Here's a valuable source of information about the Pokewalker if anyone's interested. I too, have myself a copy of SoulSilver and I'd be glad to accept any battle challenges. :P
  9. Found Bludgeon and Scattorshot at Target the other day, granted they were the only ones left. I also saw that they've stocked the new Iron man 2 line if anyone's interested in that.
  10. I recently purchased Lockdown and Brawn at Walmart recently, and I am quite happy with them. Lockdown is a great figure and a fantastic homage to the Animated line. The robot mode and the vehicle mode are both reminiscent to Lockdown's animated appearance, but it has it's own movie styling to make it a unique figure. Lockdown's vehicle mode is actually one of my personal favorites from the entirety of transformers. It's sleek and menacing, but also gives you insight into Lockdown's persona. He has a transformation scheme that's a mix of both Animated and Movie standards, meaning that it's mainly simplistic with a few instances of advanced conversion. I haven't had any problems with the ball joints on his arms. They're tight enough to pose, but loose enough to move without struggling, so it's more than likely that many reviewers received figures with QC issues. The only thing I have against this figure is the hook he has as a hand. The hook itself is made out of soft rubber, which will likely become brittle in the coming years, and is positioned in a way where in vehicle mode it just dangles off the bottom of the car and in robot mode where the "mech alive" gimmick obstructs the posability of Lockdown's arm. It's not a perfect figure, but it's strengths outshine its weaknesses. All in all, I would highly recommend it; especially for Animated fans. Brawn is also a figure I would recommend, although he falls a few short points below Lockdown. The thing that really stands out to me about Brawn is how much his color scheme changes from vehicle to robot mode. His vehicle mode is mainly a dull brown with a few black and gray accents, nothing too fancy. However, when he's in robot mode, his color scheme explodes into a multitude of different hues. He not only retains the colors he had in vehicle mode, but he also gains a main color of dark green, complemented by a metallic gold, metallic silver, and accented with red in certain places. I have to admit, I'm a big fan of his paint scheme. However, this isn't the only strong point of this figure. In fact, Brawn looks very strong overall, having a wide stature and an armored appearance. He is also very posable due to his transformation. Double jointed arms and knees as well as various swivels and a ball-jointed head can get some decent poses out of Brawl. However, the main drawback to Brawl is the fact that his vehicle mode kibble can really limit his posability in some places. Most of it is adjustable though, so he can still get away with a decent amount of poses. Brawn registers as an 8.5/10 on my scale.
  11. Found both Lockdown and Brawl at the local big-ass Walmart. I am very pleased with both of them.
  12. How many coats of nail polish would you recommend on a loose joint?
  13. The new rendition of the Battle Rollar figure arrived for me today. It's a great figure except for the fact that when it's head popped off it lost all traction in the ball joint in it's neck when I put it back on. Now i'm slowly adding layers of nail polish and waiting for them to dry. :(

  15. So I just came from the "Haul" thread to look at these photos and I have to say... Wow. That gun goes really well with Prime despite it being designed for a completely different toy line. The colors are perfect! One question though, do those shoulder pads actually fit onto Prime or did you use something to attach them?
  16. Found both N.E.S.T. Dirge and Ironhide at the local Target today. No sign of Bludgeon though.
  17. My Red Alternity Convoy just arrived from EdBomber.com My god it's beautiful. I'm conflicted about taking it out of its package now, I don't want to ruin the beauty. >_<
  18. I did notice that you did some panel lining for them. Looks good. :thumb
  19. It seems that the Power Rangers franchise has plummeted in popularity ever since Disney took over the U.S. distribution. Apparently, RangerCentral.com is showing an entirely new Bandai toy line slated for a 2010 release that's based on the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. If you look through the list provided, you'll see the Dinozord set that Optics has purchased. I guess people were getting sick of all that new crap they were pushing out. *shrug*
  20. Bought the ROTF Ice Cream Twins today. Gotta say, they're really neat desk toys. They've got plenty of poseability for being smaller figures and the combination gimmick really doesn't hinder anything in their robot modes. Their transformation can be a little tricky at first, but it isn't too hard to pull off after a few goes. I must point out that my figures in particular have have a very tight peg and hole system for their combined vehicle mode. When I try to separate them, it takes a bit of force to actually pry them apart. I'm not sure if this is the same for all figures or if this is just mine. Regardless, I'd definitely recommend them. 4.5 / 5 stars.
  21. Found and bought the Ice Cream Twins at my local Kohls. They've also been appearing all over the place at the local Wal-Mart too.
