  1. $14.99 at Target and even the little-ass Cyberverse figs are $9.89. I won't be buying any more of the new Transformers a) cuz I'm trying to not buy anything made in China anymore and b) cuz 15 bones for those figures, or $23-25 for Voyager and near $50 for leader are ridiculous.

     

    If I buy any new toys, Star Wars, TFs, MOTU, whatever, it'll be secondhand. I'm done giving my money to companies that produce all their sh*t in China and all the exact same quality (i.e. none). I tried to boycott Chinese stuff completely 2 years ago as a New Years resolution and only made it to about April before I gave up. F'ng everything is made there, much of it by people in near slave-like conditions.

  2. Can there be a new thread for this stuff that bans TransFan2? This and the "What I bought today" thread are basically his anyway, and he contributes nothing more than pics (can't be bothered to respond to other people's posts or comments/questions directed SPECIFICALLY to him) that probably 80% of the time have nothing to do with Transformers. I get tired of wading through all his Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Nintendo magazine pics to see other people's stuff.

  3. SDCC Starscream!!!

    post-14856-027341100 1312239987.jpg

    I put him next to Trypticon for a comparison so you can see just how big the box is.

     

    What exactly is that? A Starscream big enough to hold a GI Joe guy? I wasn't even aware of it until I saw it start popping up on Ebay.

     

    Better than MP Starscream?

    By no means better than MP SS. Its just a repaint of the GI Joe Skystriker, with Starscream style stickers. A great novelty piece merging TFs and GI Joe, but it doesnt transform. Honestly, the best part is the GI Joe scaled Megatron gun. The jet is just too big to display in any way other than hanging from the ceiling.

    If you were not able to get this from HTS for regular price, I DO NOT recommend paying ebay scalper price for this - its just not worth more than $50. Hell, its really not worth $50

     

    Cool, thanks for the info. Does sound like a neat piece for a collector who's more on the GI Joe side of things than TF. I'll take your advice and pass on it!

  4. Good ol' TFSource!

    :tfgrin

    BTW, I've been checking out the DOTM figs at Target when I go. Don't plan on buying any, but for those of you that have, are the Voyager class figs smaller than the first two movies? They look barely larger than the TF1 and ROTF Deluxe class figs.

  5. Here's my haul for today.

     

    Ran by Toys R Us to see if they had any DOTM in stock...this was the scene I came to: ed9c227f.jpg?t=1305438686 (It hadn't been put out yet. The person I talked to working the floor said DOTM would be going out on Sunday.)

     

    So, moved on & went to Target.

     

    Managed to pick up these from Target:

    ebb461fb.jpg?t=1305438690

    43e66ddf.jpg?t=1305438691

     

    and then I had this waiting for me in the mailbox from Toys R Us's website:

    f71213bc.jpg?t=1305438693

     

    And so it begins! lol

  6. Haven't posted in a while but here are a few recent additions. Figure I should get them in before the DOTM onslaught on Monday!

    Awwwwwwww...for the love of...

    REALLY?!?!?!?!? F'NG REALLY?!?!?!?!?

    Every other day with this non-TF crap on a TF forum.

    Sweet f'ng jeebus you suck.

  8. 0920000952.jpg

     

    And with this--just like that--my G1 collecting is all done and over with :/ but Yay at the same time..this has been fun.

     

    What figure is that? It looks like a cassette, but one I'm unfamiliar with.

     

    Thats Slamdance. He is the combined gestalt mode of the Autobot cassettes Grandslam and Raindance. http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Slamdance

     

    Cool, thanks for the info. I had no idea those guys combined together. Interesting!

  9. Finished up a couple things recently.

     

    Firstly, got the last 3 Marvel comics I needed. I now have all of the original run, 1-80. Will work on the Headmasters and Universe next, though they shouldn't be too hard to find in sets.

     

    cimg0487t.th.jpg

     

    Secondly, got the last Predacon I needed. I now have a nice Predaking, which includes a nice C8 box for each fig as well. Damn, Predaking is just badass. Love that fig.

     

    cimg0490v.th.jpg

    cimg0491v.th.jpg

    cimg0492z.th.jpg

     

    Also, picked up a nice G1 Huffer. Cardback leaves a little too be desired, but overall, ok.

     

    cimg0489r.th.jpg

     

    And lastly, since it doesn't matter what the hell gets posted in this forum, He-Man figs.

     

    cimg0497j.th.jpg

  10. The white prime cab is only a component to Ultra Magnus, not Magnus himself. He is not Ultra Magnus until he is fully assembled, as the original box clearly shows.

     

    Has/Tak passing the white cab off as UM in the Masterpiece and Classics line is embarrassing.

     

    I don't care what TF Wiki, the "canon", comic books or anyone else says.

     

    Forgive my forthrightness, but it's a pet peeve of mine. He's been my favorite character since Christmas morning '86.

  11. A couple recent additions. Got my G1 Prowl in the mail today. And ROTF Sideswipe is a milestone for me: first Transformer bought in a foreign country. Picked him up at Tesco's in Perth, Scotland. Damn pricey, though! Was like $18-19.

     

    Boy, sure can't wait till we get Europe's VAT tax later this year/early next. :tdown

     

    Anyhoo...

    Sweet Jeebus. Really? I mean, really?

     

    Not TF's. Not even robot-related.

     

    DOES.NOT.BELONG.HERE.

     

    F*CK. Every week with this shite. This is a TRANSFORMERS board.

     

    Uh-oh! To paraphrase Tweety Bird, "He don't know Transfan2 very well, do he?"

     

    Actually, this is like the 3rd time I've complained about it. I don't expect it to change, of course, but every few months it drives me nuts. An American Idol magazine from Wal-mart? WHO GIVES A F**K!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    Post your hauls here. Pics welcome. Get something new? Want to tell someone? Soooo, post 'em.

     

    Post your hauls !!!!!!!!!!!

    To be fair, there isn't anything in the opening post limiting the subject of a haul.

     

    Ridiculous. The fact that is "haul" thread is on a Transformers message board is meaningless?

  14. Ultra-Mattus, may I ask how much you've spent on that big beautiful bad-ass up to now? Good luck w/ the last piece.

     

    Picked up 2 more members to build a couple NEST strike teams, Strike Mission Sideswipe and Alliance Bumblebee. I need to get 2 Armorhides, then I'll have two teams:

     

    NEST Ironhide

    SM-Sideswipe

    Brawn

    Armorhide

     

    Magnus (Defender Optimus)

    Alliance Bee

    Brawn

    Armorhide.

     

    Plus whomever Legends Arcee wants to hang out with.

     

    You mean Predaking or Ramjet? lol Just kidding.

     

    I'm right at about $300 so far. Expensive, but I've been trying to get them with their boxes too, so that jumps up the price. It'll probably be up to $400 when I finally get Rampage. Here's hoping it's sooner rather than later.
