  1. My own reviews of Masterpiece Prowl, Bluestreak and Smokescreen - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Masterpiece-Prowl-Review-432249417 http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Masterpiece-Bluestreak-Review-432250158 http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Masterpiece-Smokescreen-Review-432250761
  2. My own pose of Orion Pax, he is a fun figure, well worth getting. The left picture is without the flash, the right with the flash
  3. Good article. I've still got my Binal Tech Smokescreen ten years later from it's release, I was one of the first to give it a review. Very much looking forward to MP Smokescreen. Also still have my MP-01. Hard to believe it's been ten years since those two figures were first announced.
  4. Thank you. The collection's grown a little since those pictures were taken, I added Generations Springer, Sandstorm and Blitzwing to the collection as well as other Transformers like Masterpiece Red Alert and others. Made some picture showcases of some of the new additions.
  5. Kup's not seen it all just yet -
  6. No matter where you go, there is always a fanatic or two, or more, being annoying -
  7. I pack away older lines bit by bit, likely next will be rest of Cybertron and Energon followed by a lot of the movie line, I intend on keeping the Alternators/Binal Tech, G1, Generations and Masterpiece around though as a whole.
  8. I'm in dire need of more room, have been for the past few years.
  9. This is my Transformers Collection so far, TF Prime Cyberverse Hyperspeed Wheeljack joined the collection several hours after these pictures were taken so he won't be seen - Picture 1 - Picture 2 - Picture 3 - Picture 4 - Picture 5 - Picture 6 - Picture 7 - Picture 8 - Picture 9 - Picture 10 - Picture 11 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-11-364784384?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=20 Picture 12 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-12-364785052?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=19 Picture 13 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-13-364785444?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=18 Picture 14 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-14-364785854?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=17 Picture 15 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-15-364786463?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=16 Picture 16 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-16-364786787?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=15 Picture 17 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-17-364787631?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=14 Picture 18 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-18-364788296?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=13 Picture 19 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-19-364789873?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=12 Picture 20 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-20-364791174?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=11 Picture 21 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-21-364792373?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=10 Picture 22 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-22-364793099?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=8 Picture 23 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-23-364794263?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=6 Picture 24 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-24-364795072?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=9 Picture 25 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-25-364795626?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=7 Picture 26 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-26-364796150?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=5 Picture 27 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-27-364796627?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=3 Picture 28 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-28-364797428?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=2 Picture 29 - http://reinahw.deviantart.com/art/Transformers-Collection-So-Far-Picture-29-364798341?q=gallery%3Areinahw%2F27245413&qo=4 I didn't show all the Transformers I have, some I didn't take any pictures of due to being tired at the time, others are packed away due to a lack of space, ones like all of my RID, most of my Armada, Energon and Cybertron, my Beast Machines and such.
  10. When MP-10 came out here in the UK last month he was sold one to a costumer, hopefully that will be done with MP-Soundwave so that it might, hopefully, reduce the amount that scalpers will buy while allowing those who are actually buying him for their collection can buy one. Would love to get MP-Soundwave, he'll likely be about £120/$120 since he comes with his tape bots. Not sure though.
  11. Isn't it about time that this was done to Bumblebee? Annoying shelf hogging cash cow.
  12. And another picture comic - Some 'Cons really should even bother trying.
  13. Masterpiece-01 has finally been ousted, behold the new Masterpiece-10 ~ Die cast isn't so great.
  14. With Hasbro hardly ever releasing anything in the UK, like MP-10 for example and their canceling MP-Thundercracker, and more Bumblebee than anything else appearing then I tend to find it hard to care when Hasbro announces yet another Bumblebee but can't be bothered to release much of anything else. It may be a minor thing, but it would be nice to find something that isn't sodding Bumblebee.
  15. Even Decepticons can be scared of the dark:
  16. Still no word from Hasbro on any news of Masterpiece-10 Optimus Prime being released here in the UK, it's looking more and more likely that they'll cancel him just like they did Thundercracker. There is no way I'm paying scalpers prices for him, Amazon UK even has him for upwards of £900 plus! I can't afford that, £100/£120 is the most I can manage for him. All I ever find is Bumblebee here.

      I managed to get one back in February, he's amazing.

  17. The poor, poor jelly babies -
  18. Human Alliance Barricade: I could just go the short route and say that he's quite the addition to the collection, but that would be pretty lazy. HA Barricade is a very good addition to a collection and well worth getting, if you are lucky enough to find him for a good price. The alt mode is as expected, it looks as powerful as it did in the 2007 movie and the little details fairly add to it. The ground clearance isn't great so it's best not to go rolling him along any carpets, but then all of the larger HA Transformers don't exactly have great ground clearance. Transformation is simple and you won't have any problems with it, it's almost like the 2007 deluxe of him with just some differences. The bot mode is great, a little modification on his upper thighs and he has better balance than without the modification. Basically the modification is just to snip off two blocks of plastic that prevent his legs from fully moving upwards in transformation, limiting his articulation. Those can be removed with a pair of flush cutters. Once done he has better leg articulation. The details are as good as hoped for, he's almost as tall in regards of head height as HA Bumblebee. Sadly he only has one hand while the other arm has a spinning blade, I've seen some people do modifications to give him two hands. The HA addition is nothing special really, just a small missile rack on the shoulder of his right arm and two gun like things that come out from beneath his torso. Frenzy, who comes with Barricade, is nothing special. He's one of the articulate HA additions but he's best just turned into his folder/engine block like mode and placed into Barricade's chest to fill a gap. I would go into more detail but I don't think that will be required, I'm sure others have read reviews of him and seen reviews of him. If you can find him, get him, he's worth it. But only buy him for a low price. Rating: 9/10 Human Alliance Soundwave: If there's a Transformer that could be considered a modern 'Holy Grail' for collectors, not all but those who very much would like to get him, it might just be HA Soundwave. We all know the story of why he's so hard to find so there's no point in my going into that. He's a rare one for sure and not easy to find for a fair price. The alt mode is great, the doors open in the gull wing style, the details give just enough detail without giving too much. The rear plate saying 'Superiour' is a cute homage, but seems out of place. The inner detail, like the larger HA line in general, is nicely detailed. He does look very cheap due to the dull grey used, but he doesn't feel cheap thankfully, he feels solid in alt mode. The transformation is daunting at first, but once you've done it once or twice it becomes pretty easy as long as you're careful not to rush the transformation. The bot mode is great, there's a lot of detail in it although he does seem to have an ape like appearance due to the size of his arms compared to his spindly looking legs. He does have some light balance issues, the tripod feet don't help much but with effort you can get him to stand just fine. He has a fair amount of articulation, much like Barricade does after the thigh mod, although his HA mode is little more than Laserbeak turning into a missile launcher. Laserbeak is nothing special, he's detailed but in all honesty he's pretty useless. Other than turning into a missile launcher, which the human character can stand on and use, he has no real use. He can sit somewhat okay on Soundwave's arms, if you're patient with balancing him. His missile launcher mode tends to make Soundwave pretty top heavy though and in Soundwave's alt mode he can't be stored anywhere unlike Frenzy can with Barricade. He just sits there getting up a little room. Finding Soundwave is not easy, but if you can get him for a good price then take the chance to get him due to how rare he is and how hard he is to find. He is smaller than most of the larger HA figures, only taller than HA Skids and I would guess Mudflap as well - not sure on Mudflap since I can't find him anywhere for a fair price. If you do get the chance though, and don't mind his balance flaws, then get him for your collection. Despite his balance flaws, Soundwave really is a great figure and worthy of being in anyone's collection. Rating: 9/10
  19. Human Alliance Barricade and Soundwave arrived today, a lot sooner than expected. They are excellent, well worth the waiting and hunting for them, now I wait for the flush cutters to arrive so that I can chip away those plastic blocks on Barricade's upper thighs and give him better balance. Would be nice to find HA Mudflap and Reverb for decent prices now.

  20. I finally did it, after so much searching and waiting, I've finally got Human Alliance Barricade and Soundwave coming in the post! Barricade for £41 and Soundwave for £48.49! AT LAST! Now to wait for them to arrive

    1. Sparkless


      Not a bad price my friend. My TRU MP Prime got here today...Oh yes. Awesome


    2. Smokescreened


      Nice! I'm still waiting on word on his UK release, so far nothing.

  21. I've got Hound and Soundwave of those. Hound isn't bad, a slightly larger version of the Universe Hound's alt mode and Soundwave is okay.
  22. Still no word on a UK release though other than the vague - 'Later this year'. Very much wanting to add MP-10 Op. Prime to the collection, but I refuse to pay over £100 for him. We've gotten hardly any TF's in this country other than Bumblebee and his many repaints.
  23. I miss being able to find any Transformers. All I ever find on the shelves are Bumblebee, it's all I've been finding for the past two or three years. Would really like to find MP10 Optimus Prime, Thundercracker and more Generations.
  24. I wonder if I should buy Human Alliance Skids next week while he's cheap enough. Love my Human Alliance Jazz, Bumblebee and Sideswipe - Although Jazz is the best of the three. Would still love to see an HA Ironhide appear.

      I would have liked to get Barricade, but he's being priced at upwards of £130 now. A tad much to say the least.

    3. Shadowpanther


      HA Barricade is so high due to HA bumblebee clogging shelves & preventing HA barricade from getting stocked on shelves.

      This should be a forum thread, not a status post.
