  1. damn you, we have too many dogs already and you make me want another pup -_- be careful, they're more addictive than plastic >_> I drove 1100+ in one day to get him or he was gonna be put down. !!!NO FRIGGIN WAY!!! New TFs are on the back burner though exept the real good ones till I get him all trained and caught up on his shots and medacine though. I've had him for 1 day though, and yeah he's a pansy, but he's such a chick magnet that it all works out!!! He's a just a good boy :tfevil
  2. Oh I got a good one this weekend! It's fully automated! Turns clear liquid yellow Turns little pellets into a musshy grey stuff Not only that it also poses the stuff all over the house without even being told to!!! Yep, I bought a solid door for my collection room, and got me a dog named Phil The Dog.
  3. Todays haul... 2 Movie chess sets at $8 each from KB :win Titanium Prowl Titanium Grimlock(now I have 2 of each) Legacy of BB set Animated BB Animated LockDown Movie Incinerator. For the sadness, I picked up a ton of everyday items at Walmart too, the cart was loaded. In the cart was a $35 Ultimate BB, I bought it, got a fair way from the store, redid the math on my reciept in my head and verified on my reciept that I payed full price :tdown I called a Walmart that was on my way home, and they said they were sold out, but would honor the $35 price. Traffic was horrible, so I just figured it I could do the same thing at the Walmart around the block from me, and sure enough, it rang up full price there too so I just returned it. This weekend is supose to be another rain out, so I intend on taking a ride tomorrow or Sunday to the one I bought it at with the $35 dispaly and knock some heads around :slap
  4. When't to Walmart in RiverVale NJ hunting for BlitzWing. Not only did they have him but he rang up for $10, so I ran back and got... Animated Grimlock Anumated Prime Animated Blitzwing(yep another one) the Movie Hot Shot redeco and a big thing of popcorn Check you price scanners, cause hey, Voyagers at half off are a beautiful thing!!! (I left the reciept in the car, I'll post a pic of it later)
  5. In the past 2 days I took in Movie Fracture, The Megatron transforming DVD case, Titanium, Grimlock and Prowl. The mailman brought me Alt Battle Ravage, Cybertron Scrapmetal, and Energon Towline curtiousy of Satan's Camaro A TPB copy of Maximum Carnage also arrived. BBTS is epanding their clearance sale, so for $8 I got 3 StarScream Barrel Rollers(one for me and 2 for the kids) some Spawn stuff, and also shipped my Pile of Loot which contained to much stuff to mention. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- And yeah I saw that Walmart display too, my store had one side all the Walmart movie deluxes, the otherside all FABs, they also had wave 2 of the Universe voyagers, but I passed on them since I already own the origionals.
  6. Cool, thanks for the tips and advice.

  7. I don't have a YouTube ID. I haven't made a stop motion in years, and those where on film. But a guy at my job knows how to line up digital pics, and I've had a story in mind.

  8. Tankor, Sunstreaker, and Prowl are great. Not only do they look terrific, they also have alot of play value. Especialy with Tankor, there are alot of different ways to position the parts beyond what the directions state to personalize him without going into a bash. The figures are light though, and you do have to watch for paint issues on Prowl. I recomend keep one packaged so you don't feel bad over inevitable battle damage. Galvatron though, he makes an awesome drone, kinda like Cybertron Unicron, but he's far to ambitious for his size. I know he was ment to be bigger, but instead of just scaling down the design, they should have retooled the transformation to fit the scale. Don't get me wrong, as fodder he works. As a display piece he looks good. However as far a Decepticon Leader goes, he's just far to fagile. So Galvadrone it is. ----------------------------------------------- PS, Animated BA... From knee to kneck, a great figure, even the head sculpt is great. Very redeaming to the Tarantulus redeco. My problems with her though are simply the plastic is too soft. Rubber legs just wont stand especialy when designed just plain wrong. The head topples to easy unless the weapon is stored which flat out kills the astetic of the figure. This generaly adds to my oppinion of Animated, it seems like they consistantly wanted to do something great, but at every turn gave up half way through. With the time between product and show preview, than show premier and figure release, that there would be plenty of time for QC, R&D and all that.... Instead 90% of the Animated figures I bought came crumbling out of the box. When compaired to 10+ year old Beast Wars figures who are still holding their own, and awesome new figures like Crossover Venom, and Spider-Man, I just don't see any reason for these half ass figuges. No excuse, I have rows of show acurate figures that are no where near as poorly designed. So here it is Has/Tak, if you wanna be cheap, I'll just keep my money. If you want those dollars though, I say make toys that hold together, and keep in mind that a "MASTERPIECE" toy needs to look, handle, and play well. One out of 3 just don't cut it.
  9. Be careful with Grimlock, loose joints are a plague on him. He is a respectable size, but things like the hole in his dino mode and nonmoving robot jaw make me just feel they didn't go the distance with this figure. The transformation is near dead on to the origional. With alittle more effort it could be one of the best homage's in TF history, but without them, he sadly falls to the fate of the "Masterpiece" Megatron in your sig(mines fine but thats only because I refuse to touch it. a nice figure, but far from a Masterpiece to me), and winds up being a fail. I'd wait for a sale or a clean second hand Grimlock. I know what your saying though about disapointment. Even with all the warnings, I still bought Universe Galvatron. I expected his left arm to keep jumping off, but that seems to be the only piece to stay on. As GALVATRON, yep, pure fail, as GALVADRONE he has some merit. Merit enough to make me want to look into a couple more so I can have a small assault team run by actual Galvatron. It's nice when something craptacular can still be made to work.
  10. This weekend, Acid Storm, Universe Galvatron, a 7inch Kratos from God of War, Premium Leader Prime(who's not so premium). Also have coming Infiltration, Hearts of Steel, Beast Wars The Gathering, Spotlight vol2, and another TPB that escapes me. It's not to much of a haul, but I've been away, just got a new niece(all cheer for Vickiemus), and grill (Charbriol Silver Smoker, with custom propain range) so TFs have been sidelined. Plus I'm kinda caught up on retail at the moment till Animated Swoop, Blitzwing, Magnus and the last 2 Titaniums hit my area... Looking forward to the eminent release of Classics Magnus' upgrade.
  11. A Hasbro box showed up today with a Combat Heros Snake Eyes and Timber(awww), 2 SDCC SkyWarps(complete Titanium Seeker trio, nice), and another Nemesis Prime to keep sealed.
  12. Just one more, roll some packing tape sticky side out and pat down the areas that some glass may have scattered. It'll pick up the fragments better than a broom. Last thing you wanna do is step on a stray sliver a month from now.
  13. Think thats bad, last lot I bought got shipped to someoneelse and I got a broken BumbleBee, and some stained beanie babies!!! First and hopefuly last time that ever happed. Seller did refund me in full and told me I could keep the package I got. I hung the beanies with wire from the top of my friends fire pit. That was fun As for todays haul, I picked up all the Classics Ultras, some GIJoes, -Nemesis Enforcer vs Falcon, BarBeQue, Hawk, and a long time favorite Bazooka. Also got the Damaged BB from the battle sceens set and sadly the final volume of the Masters of The Universe Series. I also ordered another SDCC Nemesis Prime and 2 SkyWarps. I'm figuring if Blitzwing is being sighted in mid to west US, by next week he should be in NJ along with Galvatron, that should be good hunting. I'm just pissed that I've got glass shards in my hand. So annoying...... Glad your deal worked out though. And you got to burn your anger. :evil I worked in a custom frame shop for a couple years, if anyone knows how much that sucks, it's Ol' Liege. Take a sponge or rag and wash in one movement in the direction of the cut, be sure it's just one move or else you'll lodge the tiny bits in deeper. If they're realy in there, heat a neddle and pry the bits out. DO NOT use any bacitracin or neosporin untill you're sure the cuts completely clean or else you'll seal in shards as thats basicly a filler for flesh(that would be a cool name for a metal song), then go wrap your self up. Just remember, the big pieces suck, but it's the little pieces that can actualy cause some long term damage.

    Welcome to the other side of the blackhole. We have coffee and crumbcake at the refreshment table. And just so you know tonight is BINGO night with special guest caller Ernest Borgnine.
  17. Got Crossover Venom today. His legs ar a bit bulky, but beyond that an amazing figure in both modes!!!
  18. 2 more DS StarScreams, drove 30miles for them, and an Animated Jazz.
  19. MailMan just brought me another Cybertron Unicron, a Movie Jazz, and another Cybertron Metroplex (been doing some army building)
  20. Looked around today. I found Animated Oil Slick, Slag, and SoundWave. I wasn't gonna get Soundwave, but I wanted LaserBeak as I thought it would be more articulated. Leaving the store I thought about how I didn't realy like this Soundwave, as the alt is a box and the bot looks like a Gorilla. So especialy since LaserBeak can mount on his back, I'm calling them BeastBox and SquawkTalk. Even have him on all fours with the bird on his back. Debating calling Oil Slick ChemLab?
  21. I left my camera at work, but my Nem Primes showed up today(only opened 1 though), I wanted to set something like this up. After all it's very rare I buy the same figure this many times, and each version looks great. I'm skipping the Shattered Glass version though, a crooked slogan and purple aren't enough to make me wanna pay BotCon prices. Now I just want the City Commander set to come out already :tflaugh
  22. Rampage's tank mode is my favorite, and I normaly leave him in it. It's not bulky, cumbersome, can't tip over, is well detailed and show acurate. Actualy my only quam with the figure are the way the beast legs hang off his arms in bot mode. Still he is awesome. Once they got serious about the line, the Beast Wars figures where no joke. They look great, and pretty much all of mine which are 10yrs or older are still holding up realy well. Nice job on that line!
  23. MailMan brought me another Armada Sideways, and a SDCC Nemesis Prime today. Some red would be nice on Prime, but he's still pretty awesome, a fine addition to the Evil Prime line up!
  24. Well whatever, the pics make me want it! Galvadrone who'll be a toady for my dreamed MP Galvatron, yep, all good to me!!!!!
  25. OK, but how come when a building falls the first poeple to have fingers pointed at them are the engeneers? Different scale, same principal. Anyone who's ever built anything can tell you, a hair line imperfection at point A will lead to a drastic problem at point Z which will usualy cause the project to have to go back to point A or be modified extentively. Workers are rarely blamed for an architect's failed dream. Anything designed and built falls subject to this rule. That said, I had alot more pics to upload but the site wouldn't let me so heres a slide, hope you enjoy http://s235.photobucket.com/albums/ee211/D...mview=slideshow I used planks and milkcrates to keep that old school "set up with what ever you can" feel. Nostalgia at it's finest. I will say this though. The set up wasn't as easy as it looks. It took a coulpe weeks to get the placement right, with alot of trial and error in the balancing. Trypticon and Metroplex shared the same large plank for a while till I decided it would be safer to discard that piece and set each base up on it's own tower. It's small scale, but it's also done right. If the origional layout tipped and fell, it wouldn't be the materials problem, or the weight of the figures. It would be mine and mine alone for not thinking every aspect through. The display is solid, it was engeneered properly, which leads to minimal QC issues in the layouts functionality. Although it may look crude, with proper planed backdrops that will be easy to install, this simplistic display will soon look detailed while still being easily modified. It's a job done right, as every one should be.
