  1. Loving all the non-TF pics. As much as everyone here loves TFs, I'm sure a ton of us are also fans of other toy lines and the GD forums never get as much attention. That is why I always thought this section should be changed to just Toy Discussion.

  2. All my Optimi thus far...




    Why do a lot of people display GF Galaxy Convoy/Cybertron Prime with his wings upside down?

    Because that's how it is in the instructions?

    In Hasbro's version anyways, which is clearly a mistake seeing as how the animation model and the Japanese version of the instructions have the wings pointed up, guns underneath the arms. All the sculpted details are also on the other side of the wings.


    I'm not familiar with the Yamato line so I didn't know that they hadn't released a square-faced Strike Valkyrie.

    Well it's not so much to do with Yamato. Strike and Super Valkyries are only defined by the type of Fast packs they are equipped with. The only difference between a Strike and Super Valkyrie is the right booster has the laser cannon instead of the missile pod. The core Valkyrie is still the same. A VF-1S is a VF-1S. There is no "square-faced" VF-1S. The VF-1S has always had a rounded face in the animation and line art, the toy just had the square face because of poor toy technology back in the day.

  3. Whee...


    - Cybertron Defense HotShot [from TRU]


    [Too lazy to take a pic of an older figure...]


    Wasn't planning on picking up a second CD HotShot, but at TRU's "1/2 price for a deluxe", who wouldn't take CD HotShot for $7.47CDN? :thumb


    My TRU's deluxe area is conveniently empty now that this sale is going on :roll

    Same here. I was hoping to find a Unicron but they were totally cleaned out.

  4. Whoohoooooooooo


    - Energon Wing Saber [loose complete, from Chiggy Von Richthofen]

    - Cybertron Crumplezone [loose complete, from Chiggy Von Richthofen]

    - Alternators Optimus Prime [MISB, from eBay]

    - Alternators Optimus Prime [MISB, from eBay]



    I got extra Primes because I bid on like 3 of them on eBay, and I won all 3 auctions (the other one I got with my Alt Mirage last week). Besides, at least now I have one with a proper set of hands.

    I needed a second Crumplezone that I wasn't going to pay full price for an MISB one for a kitbash that I think everyone can guess. (I was going to say "I need one that was loose and cheap", but that... can have other meanings...)

    E-WingSaber... well, he's a brick, but having 2 of these guys is just makes E-OptimusPrime so much more playable! "Grand Convoy uber Wing/Cannon Mode"!!! :thumb


    Nice set. The only thing I think didn't choose properly was that Wing Saber. Sure, I was supposed to buy the e-version on BBTS too and chose SL, cause they were out of E-version, but it was a fortunate move.


    To be honest, e version looks for me like mold with some unfinished paint job- Those small details that E-version lacks make a great difference...



    Oh, yeah, I definitely agree with you all the way that the SL version of Wing Saber is WAYYYYY better. :thumb

    But there's something about a "$10 loose complete" one that I can't pass up on. Besides, the kitbasher in me will probably just add the missing paint apps myself...

    Well if you do, don't forget the black paint on the Wing mode hands. I owned Energon Prime and Wingsaber for a while and after selling them off (and you got the Prime FG :tftongue ) and getting the SL versions I noticed the huge difference. They just looks so much better.


    Now for what I bought. Alt Mirage and Camshaft. :clap
