Thundercracker and Skywarp!

From Newage.  These guys are tiny.

50219271106_d19243efbc_c.jpg

Thundercracker with other legends sized TFs.  Ordered a Starscream from eBay, and I'll snag a Coneheads set at some point.  

Speaking of Coneheads...

Amazon came through with their exclusive Seekers 2pk.  I wish Dirge wasn't surprised all of the time.  Shut your mouth, Dirge, you're letting the Insecticons in.

Colors feel off.  Ramjet always seemed off-white, not pure white.  Both should have stripes on their wings.  I'm sure Hasbro will repaint these guys to sell at Walmart next year.  Thrust is due out in a future wave, as a regular release.

Perfect Effect's Nemesis Prime.  PE released an awesome Powermaster Optimus/Ginrai cab figure a few years back, which replaced the cab of the Hasbro and Takara Super Optimus and Super Ginrai figures.  Then they retooled that mold and added an original trailer, inspired by both God Ginrai and Jetwings Optimus from Bayformers.  This is that retooled cab, minus the trailer.

Not quite as tall as Earthrise Optimus, but a pretty good fit.

Kieth's Fantasy Club (KFC) Ditka.  Needs support to stand.  I can't get the legs to collapse to return to either vehicle mode, but both the tank and the jet look good.  I can't recommend this guy, even at the $85 I paid.  If you want a decent Masterpiece scaled Triplechanger, Open and Play Big Springis an excellent take on Springer, and can be found for around $50.  

I might track down a DX9 Gerwalt Blitzwing.  The tank mode looks worse, but the jet is more realistic (the KFC Blitzwing has a very boxy, G1 toy jet mode), and it can actually pose and stand.

Oh, it seems those Target exclusives are real, I found GI Joe Classified Roadblock!  Very cool figure.

I'm starting to think about paying scalper prices for Skywarp and Thundercracker.  

Dirge and Ramjet arrived today.  My Dirge had a molding error on one of the pegs that holds the legs together in jet requiring me to have to carve a little bit of it off to allow the peg to fit.

Don't!

Just watch Target's site.  I snagged one this afternoon, for in-store pickup.  They're starting to hit again.

Target.com had them this morning.  I placed an order, but wasn't able to choose a shipping type.  It said they'd deliver it by this Friday.  I guess I'll see.

I've had one recent package completely lost in USPS, and there are two others which are looking like they're lost as well.  So, I wish I had been able to choose UPS or FedEx, which aren't having the same problems locally.

@Gabriel Good luck!  I hope your Seekers show up on Friday.  

Once Thrust comes out, this could be the third set of Seekers I've completed.  I current;y have all six from the Classics mold, as well as Iron Factory's set.  Still need a vintage or reissue G1 Ramjet (I have the G2 version) and MP Dirge to complete those sets.

Dirge was my first Seeker.  Massive fondness for his distinctive wings.  Massive nostalgia value.

I hadn't noticed the open mouthed headsculpt until you mentioned it.  My first thought upon noticing it was...  well, I'm not going to say my first thought.

Second thought was that he was yelling, "I am the scales of justice, conductor of the choir of death!"

Third thought was that he was singing a Minmei tune: "To be in LOOOOOVE..."

Newage PBS (Prowl, Bluestreak, Smokescreen) complete!  

50306969077_febdc7e742_c.jpg

Now to get Ratchet and Ironhide.  And Bluestreak variants.  

50306968692_3618bc3c14_c.jpg

Latest wave of Micromasters.  

50306130658_4a95661cef_c.jpg

Hammerbyte is cool.

Snapdragon is cool, too.  It's nice that all of the first wave of Headmasters have received updates.

I was grocery shopping in one of my local Walmarts on Saturday and something told me to go look in the toy section.  I originally went to see doll stuff but saw the boys toy aisle and figured I'd check that out.  And I'm so glad I did because I found one of these guys!

He was the last one there so I snapped him up at $29.99.  I looked for any cassettes but didn't see them or a spot for them either.  It was cool finding him because I really had no clue he was even out.  So if you get a gut feeling on stuff no matter where you are.... FOLLOW IT.  😄

I gave up counting the girls I own, they keep multiplying and won't stop.

There aren't any cassette reissues for Blaster this time around, unfortunately.  I have a Takara reissue that came with Steeljaw, but never got a hold of the other cassettes.  I'd love to get Ramhorn and Eject, to replace the childhood copies I no longer have.

@F-15alice That Flame Toys Megatron looks incredible!  I haven't bought any of their figures yet, but I did get to handle Tarn at TFcon a couple years ago.  Very impressive.   I'm hoping for Jazz or Hot Rod in this line.  Or Galvatron...  I'd need Galvy for sure.

Mastermind Creations Reformatted R-48 Optus Pexus.  Transformer of the year.

50923476787_d9dcf98f16_c.jpg

Based on IDW Cybertronian mode Optimus Prime.  Insanely posable.

Modern voyagers have gotten small...  Seriously, Jazz is an old deluxe class, Thrust is a 2020 Earthrise voyager.  

50947961367_b2be067d9f_c.jpg

Combiner Wars leader Megatron scales well, but isn't quite up to Optus Pexus' standard.
