Another day, another Transformer.
I have to say that I have been impressed with the Generations line thus far. There are quite a few I didn’t get, but very few that I didn’t like. The figure we’ll be looking at today, was one I initially didn’t want.
Scourge wasn’t on my want list, but like most times, the ones I truly want are never on the pegs. Don’t get me wrong. I think he looks pretty good in bomber and robot mode. And the white and blue paint job is pretty sweet!
This ended up being a real pain in the ass for a level 3 transformation. Everything is well hidden and fits together so well, you don’t really see any of the robot when it’s in vehicle mode. And as we know, the directions did jack shit to help me with the transformation process. But about 20 minutes after I decided not to try and follow the directions, I finally got it! And the results are very nice.
As always, I think the robot mode looks awesome! This is one of the few figures that looks okay with the robotic facial hair. It didn’t translate too well in Revenge of the Fallen, but this looks okay. And he still manages to look like a pretty bad-ass Decepticon.
I found him at Target, and there were a few Wheeljacks and Thundercrackers as well. It figures that after i find the toys I really want after hunting for them, that they would be in steady supply shortly after.
Over the past week or so, I have been the winner of a few auctions on Ebay. After the ones we’ll see today, I only have one more that I’m waiting on. And that’s the one I’m most excited about. You’ll see when it finally arrives.
I don’t have a very big collection of He-Man figures, but there are quite a few figures I would like to have in my collection. Mantenna here, is one of those figures. When I was a kid, I thought this figure was awesome just because of it’s feature to raise and lower his eyeballs. Being part crab(is that correct?), and having multiple limbs probably figured into it as well. I don’t know if the crossbow is the correct accessory, but it came with the figure. He stands well on his own, and his eyeballs have very little wear(a big plus with this figure).
This here, is Dirty Dog. One third of the Puppet Land Band from Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. I already have Cool Cat, now I just need Chicky Baby to complete the band.
I got a few more games to add to my SNES collection. None of these are rare or stellar games, but they’re fun and they were priced right. I never played Buster Busts Loose(at least I don’t think I did). But coming from Konami, I’m pretty sure it’ll be a fun play-through(and it’s CIB, so it’s a win-win). Bill Laimbeer’s Combat Basketball came out during the SNES’s first year. I know I’ve played it, but I have no recollection of it. Super Pinball:Behind the Mask was popular game in my household in it’s day. I haven’t played it since, but I remember ir being a great pinball simulation, and it was addicting as hell! I’ll give ’em all a shot this weekend.
