  1. Got me to be a BW fan ( warmed up to it because of this episode but before this I loathed the series)
  2. Henkei Minibots Content per pack #3 'bots #3 biocards #1 instruction sheet (Pics on the way) Just picked up all #6. So what's the complaint? Well some mix up between the Spy team and Attack team. In their bios, Beachcomber is more of a pacifist as portrayed in the "Golden Lagoon" G1 show while Warpath is more like Gong personality. Well the teams are divided into: Spy-team: Wheelie,Adams,Warpath Attack team: Gong, Cliffjumper, Beachcomber I'll begin with the Spy Team: 1. Wheelie has been upgraded into another concept car that transforms into a"near"accurate G1 robot representation of himself. For his size he has 8 points of articulation and goes well with MP Grimlock. He is highly detailed from his blue optics down to his energon "slingshot". But Takara kind off dropped the ball by going for the lighter yellow color instead of the G1 orange. I give him a 4 out 5 (for loosing the color) 2. Adams (Cosmos) another great upgrade.......sort of. He still transform into a UFO disc like vehicle but this time he's got a rear fin. Colorwise, almost like the Universe version except instead of blue markings along his circumference, it is silver. He has this cybertronian markings around his arm, his arm btw looks buff compared to the G1 version. Positives, the original's head tend to collapse on himself while this one, it stays up. Very detailed down to the blue optics and his colors is a darker green than the original. He tends to be back heavy. Points of articulation 6. I give him a 4.9 out of 5 3. Warpath: my personnal favorite. The tiny titan with tourrettes syndrome. An excellent representation of the character. If you can get a hold of the old Marvel comic # 16 - #17, Don Perlin drew him this way so for all sense and purposes this is his true cybertron mode. Does he have gimmicks? Takara added a feature where you can retrack his gun barrel, which is very nice but he lost the 360 ability to point the weapon as opposed to his G1 counterpart. I also like the red/maroon shiny plastic used on him, nicer than the G1 color. Points of articulation? 8 if you adjust his rear threads, he can also bend his arms at his elbows. I give him a 5 out of 5 Now the attack team: 1. Beachcomber: an upgraded dune buggy with a machine gun on his back. Simple in transformation with an anime accurate face/mouth plate. He is a much lighter hue of blue when compared to the Universe version whose color is more G1 toyish. I noticed that my universe version is somewhat misshappened on the front so it transform a bit misaligned. Details? same as the other two (for its size) and has 6 points of articulation I give him a 4.8 out of 5 2. Gong/Brawn: a change in vehicle mode but still an SUV. Color is more of a military drab green as opposed to the Universe version. And his chest module is more yellow than orange. Fore arms too have been repainted into a more silverish color. Details? One complaint is like the Universe version, the face shouldn't have been black because it tends to obscure his face details. POA around 6. I give him a 4 out of 5. 3. Last but not the least, the paranoid 'bot with the big gun fetish who is probably overcompensating because of the shortness of his stature (a lot of short things do that I suppose)..................Cliff/Cliffjumper. Basically a mini me of henkei/universe Bumble B. A very simple transformation of the former and can stand side by side with the G1 original. POA is 6 and I noticed his back pack doesn't snap tight to the back groove making it a bit loose. Of course, monetary considerations aside for Takara, re-using the Bumble B mold and then slapping the name Cliff on him, I'd have given him a 5 out of 5 if he had his own original head molding............so instead 4 out of 5. A great effort by Takara/Hasbro though the henkei version wins hands down (with the exception of Wheelie) for the packaging. Here are the comparison shots..........Henkei and G1: Wheelie: G1 and well............ With old Grimlock himself..... Old short stuff himself with the gun fetish Gong......... Hippie boy Beachcomber Cosmos And loudmouth himself.........Baam, boom and zowie!
  3. I wish I can get a Shockwave code. Mine is the PS3 version btw.
  4. Yup. Some showing their age but basically in pristine well cared off condition.
  5. Thanks for adding me to your circle of friends bro!

    TFA Arcee Acknowledging some picture references from tfwiki.net and seibertron.com contents: # 1 Arcee supercar # 1 wing kibble # 2 swords # 1 blister pack/card backed Background: It took HasTak all this years to finally make a direct homage to everyone's favorite fembot from the 1986 movie ............as in she actually transforms into a car. Though also borrowing from the recent hermaphrobot IDW storyline, she also comes with two energon swords to better cut you with (I'm looking at you Jhiaxus) Review: Anyway back to the lady herself. The stylized design fits her well. How the engineers of Takara fit her lithe body into the cybertronian car mode and still come out looking feminine is a feat itself (I'm looking at you Override) Other gimmicks include light piping: Btw, the highlighted details are my customs to make her look more like her animation art work, including lip gloss Kibbles? Well she has those twin ailerons which gives her a futuristic look but IMHO ruins her visage. You can also stick/store her energon blades into her rear...............fender(?) ( that becomes her shoulder armor in robot mode) Articulation? I count 10. Though the amount of poses are kind of limited (especially her front wind shield which prevents her from actually sitting properly) Differences with Hasbro's? Matte finish, silver autobot sigils (a second run of the Hasbro version is said to have a slightly different finish) and some additional/changes in paint apps on her feet and torso. My actual unit: full body shot "Mission accomplished........sir!" Slice and dice baby! Complaints? Heard that constant holding of her energon blades tends to break her thumbs. So, unless you've got two versions of her, avoid doing so like a plague. Her neck is also too......thin, if not handled carefully, it's a stress point which may lead to breakage. Price: Good and bad or is it due to Hasbro's idiotic system of distribution? A lot of scalpers have made a killing off her. She was quite hard to find as a TRU exclusive. but lately, there were reports that TRU sold her on-line as a buy 1 take 1 50% off promo so go figure. The Takara version too is quite hard to find, (not sure if the Japan version too is a limited release or just that demand for her is also as high) Rating: 4.8/5.0 owing to the fact that we finally have the closest official thing to the original. So nostalgia on my part plays a huge factor on my rating. Good luck finding one brothers!
  8. This is in honor of the upcoming 3rd pressing of the "King" of the G1 combiners! Contents: #5 Predacon mechanimals (die-cast version) #1 sonic sword #1 Predaking head #1 X-ray canon #2 spiked fists #2 canon feet #1 wing glider thingie a lot of kibbles from the various mechs' weapon #5 instruction manuals Pictures: Weapons Close up face Goliooooooon! Full body shot Right side "Blazing sword" The guy's so big I need two shots of his back Toes of doom! Left side of his legs Background: Either a minion of the Quintessons ( in the DW and anime universe), Megatron's primo hatchet men (IDW) or plain old hunters, this group is among the most wanted of the Destron gestalts. With a similar temperment like the recently released Piranacon, this beast mechanimal transformers know how to use their killer instinct. In his bio, he has no peer (well except for his royal awesomeness Sky lynx). His most finest hour (and animation) IMHO was in the Season 3 episode "Call of the Primitives". All this PR and I almost didn't buy him back in 1991(he was btw my first combiner). Similar to Devastar/Devastator, this combiner had to follow a specific combining sequence: Razor Claw (main torso),Headstrong and Tantrum feet even though Rampage and Divebomb (serving as his arms contrary to popular belief, can be interchangeable) At first look, his colors (orange/yellow/black )are like meehhhhh but it does grow on you. He is quite heavy but very stable (thanks to Tantrum and Headstrong's back pack canons. He's got a Go-lion/Daltanious lion head on his chest (caused a lot of controversy back then with Bandai). Owing to the greatness (I'm not backing out from the statement) of the QC back then, this 'bot of mine is as tight as a virgin. smooth molding, clickty click locking of the connections. To add more to his being a bad@ss, his fists are like spiked!, like them street gang thugs! Poor Bruticus never knew what hit him (reference DW storyline) Is there anything wrong with this figure, due to old age, his dang labels (especially Razorclaw) keep on pealing off. and he tends to slouch forward. He also sports some articulation, 9 in fact, so he was also somewhat advance for his time. So in honor of the upcoming fall release (which also looks awesome), the "King" will be making a comeback.....again.....and is sure to be sold out! Rating: When I first bought him...............I found it ugly so 2/5. But after all these years, he did grow on me...............4.99/5
