Optimus Timelord's Achievements


Newbie (1/14)



  1. Just got these oversized Perfect Effect Reflectors. Cheap and cheerful, but will make good MP Reflector custom fodder... [
  2. My first iGear conehead arrived this morning. Just had time to take a few pics before going to work :-)
  3. Your avatar has all my favorite things!

    Though Prime seems to be missing his 12ft scarf...

  4. The good news: they've knocked off a Human Alliance figure... :) The bad news: they chose HA Sideswipe :( KO Sideswipe in different colours
  5. I wouldn't panic just yet, I think Paypal is the only confirmation... I sometimes get a shipping notice later, sometimes the package just turns up at the door! Guess it depends who's doing the processing.
  6. My latest KOs... Oversized Classics seeker... ...and oversized G1 Dreadwind (comes with a Powermaster partner, although he doesn't transform into engine and there's no Powermaster unlocking feature) From www.kotoys.com
  7. There are a couple of gold paint apps (inside the air vents, at the tips of the wings, and on the tops of his feet), but the head isn't painted. It's not gold, but compared to the original dark grey MPSS head it is definitely more bronze-tinted plastic. Overall I'm extremely pleased with this figure (like I said, I wouldn't normally buy clear TFs - I don't see the point - but this is one time there's a good reason for it). Swapped the orange vertical stand he came with for the standard clear one. Not a lot to report on in the packaging; just a black & white instruction booklet and character card. And standard MP3 SS sticker set.
  8. :tflaugh I wasn't planning on taking *any* pictures! But he looked so good in the display case I just couldn't resist! ;)
  9. Got MP Ghost Starscream in the post today... This is my first clear TF, after a *very* careful transformation I had to put him on display immediately! :tfevil Might have to try and do something to make those hands blue though...
  10. Well I guess this scuppers that expensive Jizaitoys WST Sixshot exclusive which was reported a few days ago! These should be good - Justitoys did a grand job on WST Blaster and Shockwave.
  11. No probs, I'm sure you'll be happy with him. Oh, and he's much better sized against G1 Blaster too! :D
  12. I've got him, he's actually very good for a KO. Best thing is he can display alongside MP seekers :love No real flaws, except mine seems to topple forward at the drop of a hat (he has plastic feet not metal like the original). A few paint app issues, like the eyes in the wrong place, but overall a really great buy (for the price). Comes with a very nice Laserbeak and a so-so Ravage (no foot articulation). I'm in the middle of a custom upgrade to give him the real MP treatment :win
  13. Your Blitzwing is one of these :) It's an old KO, I found them in a small store, they had 6 stashed in the attic, I bought them all, got the store dude to call his supplier, but no more. I gave them all to Mike. I probably got the last 6 available in China :) You sir are a God! :wave I've been trying to get one of these for ages, I even got Mike on it through the Toy Hunter service last year, but he couldn't help. The scale is really impressive, and Blitzwing is my fave triple-changer. Thanks dude! I'm hoping to paint him up G1 style. :D
  14. Here's my latest from www.kotoys... Supersized G1 Blitzwing!
  15. I used the KOToys Toy Hunter Service to get those :) Mike at KOToys can get anything on taobao also. yup, set of 3, pic of the package in my album, better to get the 3 pack anyway, better plastic and chrome parts, Thanks for that Paul, I've emailed Mike and he's gonna keep a look out for them for me :D In the meantime, I got me an oversized Dirt Boss; I don't have the real one for comparison, but I know for a fact that this is much much bigger!! And here's oversize Soundwave and Blitzwing; Laserbeak and the black Ravage (who has no ankle articulation) came with Soundwave. The green Rumble and red Ravage are similarly oversized; Rumble's head is backward but Ravage has all articulation intact.
