  1. Back on December 8, 2010, my room suffered a major flood coming from an emergency fire sprinkler pipe in my room. My floor was destroyed, part of my wall and some of my boxed figures were ruined. Two months later, on February 9, 2011, I received my best birthday present ever....my rebuilt room. I shared the news last month, and even promised pictures. Well, now I have them. So here they are:

  2. glad he got to ya safe and sound :)

    holy moly i thought i drove fast! on a left turnnnn nascar training :)

     

     

    I used to autocross, using a Ford Focus ZX3 as my driving platform. Since I started doing it, I just haven't been able to make turns at a slow pace without gunning it. Cornering has just become a speed obsession with me.

  3. So I was going through my collection, and I decided to open up my ROTF Bludgeon, Animated Japan Wingblade Optimus Prime and Animated Japan Blackout.

     

    ROTF Bludgeon: My first impressions, upon opening this figure, was the vehicle mode. Quite the awesome looking tank mode. What kinda soured my liking a tad was the handle of the long samurai-esque sword. This handle makes up the end of the main tank gun barrel. The plastic was a tad bent but that's something a little hot water and a vice can fix. What bent me out of shape was the sword itself. No chrome, which made it a very lackluster sword. Even the smaller blade, tucked away in the hidden sheath, sucked. Transformation was pretty easy, and can probably be performed without taking a glance at the instructions. In looking at the figure, in both modes, I think this thing could use some paint apps. Light piping would have helped out a bit in the robot's head too. I know some of you like this figure but I am just going to go ahead and bust a confused Caesar and give it two thumbs horizontal. I'm so-so about it.

     

    Animated Japan Wingblade Optimus: At first, I wasn't too sure about the clear plastic on this figure. It's two modes in one box. The standard Optimus has all parts in transparent plastic. It gives a nice effect to the figure but it doesn't do it any real justice. Weapons are the same as the US Spec Voyager version. Transforms all the same. Now what comes solid painted is the Wingblade parts. The backpack is given a nice metallic candy red finish, while the shoulder cannons and winged gauntlets are given the metallic blue. The gauntlets just port onto Optimus' hands. Each gauntlet hand is slightly spring-loaded, with a slot on the finger portion to accomodate the Magnus hammer. The jetpack clips onto the lightbar, all the while the shoulder cannons peg into the jetpack and just sit there with no secure fastening to Optimus' shoulders. The figure also came with 2 projectiles to plug into the shoulder cannons. All in all a very nice piece but it could've been a lot better had they just stuck with solid plastic rather than translucent. A thumb and half for this one.

     

    Animated Japan Blackout: Now this Voyager is awesome. The vehicle mode features six vulcan cannons (2 on each arm, 2 over the top of the vehicle). Transformation is very simple. Pull out the tail rotor, flip the waist section and legs down. Flip the legs out, rotate the feet out as well. Bring the arms down and flip out the hands. Take the cockpit section apart and fold it back till it snaps into the holes of each side of the center chest assembly. Fold the main rotor blades down like the Movie Blackout, and you'll have yourself one menacing Decepticon. The tail rotor clips into either hand, and features a disc launcher. For what it is, it is quite an awesome figure. He really came out nicely done. Two thumbs up for this one.

  4. RTS Windcharger: This scout is full of badassery. The transformation is simple, reminiscent of Hubcap. The red plastic looks like a custom candy finish you see on hot rods. The hand cannons are a really neat feature as well. Two thumbs up for this scout.

     

    HFTD Tomahawk: This is a pretty awesome deluxe figure for what it is. The transformation is relatively easy, and the robot mode looks simple yet aggressive in it's own right. I couldn't resist renaming him to Rotorstorm to kinda sit in on my Wreckers squad. Two thumbs up for this guy as well.

  5. My haul for today:

     

    Fansproject Protector Armor

    Sidearm kit

    Iron Man 2 Modern War Machine

    Iron Man 2 Ultimate Avengers Armor

    Marvel Universe Modular Armor Iron Man

    CrazyDevy King's Power Parts Sonic Sword

     

    and my last week's haul was a 2011 Ford Fiesta SE.

     

    Coming soon, my rebuilt room.

     

    Daaaamn someone got an early tax return! :D

     

    haha I wish. I'm actually owing the IRS this year. The toy haul was something I had going with BBTS, all store credit for some of my duplicate unwanted figures. As for the car, I gave up my 2002 Ford Focus ZX3 (Cliffjumper) due to an exhaust system fail that wouldn't let me pass smog. As for my room, I've been somewhat roomless (homeless so to speak, since both my figure collection and myself reside in there most of the day) for a whole month and a week. The guys responsible for the rebuild are barely going to start it this Wednesday (1-12-11). So hopefully, in a couple days, I'll have a room again and so will my Transformers, Marvel Legends, Iron Man figures, Voltrons and Megazords.

  6. no ETA just yet. still going through some things with insurance. its been about 13 days now. sleeping on the couch is quite uncomfortable. as for that megazord i got, yeah it does look naked without the dragonzord but i'm hoping that they are making one to accompany this thing.

     

    Oh, hauls.....well, technically they're not at my house yet but I did win a couple auctions on E-Bay for a Marvel Legends Domino, X-23 (X-Force skivvies), an Iron Man 2 6" War Machine and a MOSC Marvel Universe Archangel (blue face). I also purchased the new Family Guy - It's a Trap DVD (HILARIOUS).

  7. As promised, here are pics of the damage my room took in. This was my worst thing to ever receive

    That all occured back on the 8th of December. Kinda sucks that my collection and I are still roomless to this day. But aside from all that I did get me a 2010 MMPR Megazord back on December 10

    Also, yesterday I picked up a 2011 Marvel Universe Series 1 Iron Man

  8. the carpet was 3/4 soaked. my room had 13 minutes worth of water spillage into it before i was even able to locate and shut off the water main. luckily most of my electronics still work but my collection and I are pretty much homeless for the time being. I'll work up some pics of the damage as it is one of my worst hauls EVAR!! lol
