  1. it's not a toy, but i bought a 13" macbook air.

     

    i had a macbook before, but i put that through its paces.

     

    i needed a new battery for my 15" macbook pro, but decided to get the macbook air instead, i'll deal with the battery later.

     

    but man this thing is light, i love it. but then again, i don't think there is an apple product that i own that i don't love.

  2. still here.

     

    there's just not much to report lately.

     

    sometimes i don't understand stores. they sell a bunch of gift cards for christmas and now their aisles are practically empty so now people have nothing to spend said gift cards on.

  3. I really love these third party transformers companies jumpin on the fan bandwagon! They have been producing neccessary accessories and upgrades for G1 figures and more! I always wondered why my G1 Ironhide and Ratchet did not come with normal robot heads like all the other figures. Without proper heads they looked too much like the GoBots. But little by little thru the years third party companies have kept evolving the head molds for G1 ironhide and Ratchet.

     

    It started with the reissues having a paper cut head versions:

    **Then they got upgraded to a real plastic head mold that attached to a slot on the back of the figures. They also were allowed to fold the head down and allow them to stay attached to transform to vech. mode.

    **And now the latest upgrade I have find is by a company called GEAR4Toys. Got my set thru BBTS. This upgrade allows the whole figure to look more fuller and what it should have looked like it first came out. It comes with Head attached to a upper chest half attached with more flexible arms. It also comes with hand pistols, an extra light up battery. Yes!!!! One extra cool feature the eyes light up by simply pressing a small button on the back of upgrade.

     

    The only two slight down sides are: 1) You have to use the figures original arms and fold them around to the back of the upgrade pieces and them rest up agaist the piece to keep it attached. The upgrade pieces do not snap on or attach to the slots on the figure's back like the earlier head molds did. 2) These upgrade pieces cannot stay attached when transforming to vech modes. Not that big of a deal though.

     

    Overall I am extremely pleased with the new improved overall look these upgrades give my G1 figures. I love the light up eye feature and the heads do turn a complete 360 degrees around. I highly recommend these latest upgrades if you want to finally give your G1 Ironhide and Ratchet a more fuller robot look!

    i may have to pick those up as well. thy really really make ironhide and ratchet look incredible.

     

    last thing i bought was the TRU exclusive predator and alien two pack (they're my first from each franchise) and i'd have to say that they're awesome especially the alien.

     

    and snake eyes which is awesome.. tons of accessories. i love the silencers he comes with, and that he's got a holster on his leg for his hand gun and it's suppressor.

    NOW BRING ON MASTERPIECE RODIMUS PRIME.

     

     

     

  4. opticsp - you are so very right. however. i'd love it if they released a version where the markings were painted over the masterpiece F22 scheme. i think that would be an rotf movie masterpiece. oh.. and that prime looks INCREDIBLE. nice work

     

    and devil. very cool picture, now you need to do some photoshopping and add some light rays and what not then it'd be perfect. lol

     

    i can't want to have my masterpiece hot rod doing that.

     

    god i really cannot wait 'til the end of this month. masterpiece hot rod/rodimus is going to easily be my favorite figure of all time.

     

     

     

  5. very cool pictures. they kind of remind me of the day after tomorrow.

     

    the one thing i don't get is how that iron man 2 line was handled so terribly.

     

    i mean, they have a TON of slightly different 3.75" iron man figures.. and barely any bad guys. whiplash in the movie had two suits.. the race track suit and the final battle suit. yet.. they only made one version of him and ONLY in 3.75"? sounds pretty stupid. not to mention that that figure still has yet to hit the shelves in the targets and toys r us's in my area. they also should have made all of the hammer drones. i know they made a couple of them, just not all of 'em. and the ground assault ones you can only get in the nick fury two pack.

     

    what they should've done is.. along with the iron man/war machine walmart exclusive 6" figures, they should've released two whiplash figures in that line. one of the exoskeleton and the other of the final battle suit. those six inch figures are great.. but who needs three iron men and one war machine.. give us the bad guy from the movie. there has to be some big time morons working at hasbro to not release a 6 inch whiplash.

     

    it's like releasing a leader class prime in the first movie wave.. then a year and a half later releasing a scout class megatron.

     

     

  6. you need to pick him up, out of everything new released so far.. (other than leader starscream) he is by far my favorite. hasbro really did an incredible job with jazz. it's just a really smart design. i dug out my 07 deluxe jazz.. and i can't believe i ever even bought it it's so ridiculously terrible, it really ruined what was a cool character in the movie.

  7. targets in montgomeryville and plymouth meeting both have one human alliance jazz each.

     

    i SERIOUSLY suggest everyone purchase a human alliance jazz. not only is it easily the best human alliance figure, but it's one of the gems of the movie style figures, right up there with buster prime and leader class starscream.

     

    great weapon, great articulation very very good transformation, great colors, the addition of the flip down visor is awesome, his knees have sort of a swinging side to side joint which allow his feet to lay flat on whatever surface you choose to display him. i also love that they added those collarbone piece, and i especially LOVE that the sides of his chest are able to angle up on the sides.

     

    things you should now for accurate transformation are.. his arms push up a little into his shoulders so that they don't look ridiculously long. and the thigh pieces swivel in to the front and actually click into place, it take a little bit of a push, but they do.

     

    oh.. and i also love that they added a mock spoiler on his back. it would've been nice if his back pack spun around so that the true spoiler was there.. but it's not a big deal at all. at least they thought about that aspect of his appearance and added a mock version.

     

    after getting this figure i really wish they hadn't killed him off in the first movie.

  8. man, human alliance jazz is incredibly, best human alliance figure by far.

     

    he's the first human alliance figure that i haven't needed to customize at all. with bumblebee i had to flip his legs, and angle up his doors, and with sideswipe and skids, i remove their backpacks in robot mode.

  9. Last Saturday the Plymouth Target was in the process of their fall shift. The only TF I found was Mindwipe. He looked so lonely on the shelf too...

     

    definitely not the case now.. it's got everything except the exclusives.. as of the other day that is.

  10. damn you. i went there today and saw bumblebee and i had a feeling jazz had been there at some point.

     

    oh well, i didn't bring enough money for that today anyways.

     

    i'll have to wait til thursday to go looking.

     

    but it seems like everywhere around here is stocking new stuff. i saw cyber ops bumblebee at the willow grove TRU. looks pretty cool, but he's way to big to fit into my collection.. not to mention too expensive for what/who it is.

  11. i finally found drift (again, i saw him when i picked up wfc prime and bumblebee, but that's it)

     

    the target in plymouth meeting has most of the new stuff, everything except leaders, there's a tag for cyber ops bumblebee but none instock (or left) when i got there.

     

    the new iron man transformers are out in the iron man section, and the new clone wars figures are stocked.

  12. that's it, i'm going to start collecting donations to buy you leader class starscream. if you have rotf leader prime, you NEED starscream bumblebeetounge.gif

     

    what about a flyers jersey!!! at least one of those jersey shirts.

     

     

    i REALLY wish toys r us would restock the generations figures. i still need drift and thrust.

     

    i can't believe walmart and target haven't stocked anything new. they're losing out on money. their transformers sections are terrible. target is EMPTY except for mudflaps, and walmart just restocked.. so now it's FULL of old figures.. like rotf deluxe barricade. yuck.

     

    oh and the phillies just won in extras and now they're only 2.5 games behind atlanta!!!

  13. man, i SERIOUSLY cannot wait til christmas to get masterpiece movie starscream. that thing looks ridiculously accurate to the real F22 which is one of, if not my favorite jets.

     

    oh.. and masterpiece rodimus prime. i really cannot wait to see the prototype images this weekend.

  14. Leader SS is on my do not want list. Im being more selective with transformers. love hubcap and brimestone.

     

    we are no longer e-friends.. and i'm calling rendell an am going get him to deport you out of this state.

     

    you need leader starscream. NEED. lol.

     

    Sorry to but in on your boards guys but Tim is right. Furthermore you deserve Starscream.

     

    hahah. that's a good way of putting it.
