Starscream

Posted in Toys, Transformers with tags , , , , , on November 7, 2012 by Jason

I wasn’t sure exactly what line this Starscream would be considered part of.  Judging by the figure, and card back it looks like it would be part of the Reveal the Shield line.  But that’s not the case.  From the front of the card, you could beleive that it would be from Gnerations.

Can you see what I’m talking about?

I found this at The Christmas Tree Shop.  There were also 3 other different figures, which were Bumblebee, Optimus Prime and G2 Megatron.  With the exception of the G2 Megatron, the other 3 figures are all in the Reveal the Shield line.  These figures do not have the rub sign, and they also come with weapons.  From what I can see, I’m thinking that these may be a Canadien release, and The Christmas Tree Shops ended up with the overstock(I will be going back for Megs).

He looks good in robot mode.  But as with all figures in this scale, you can’t get him in too many different poses.

Almost 100% of the time, I prefer the robot modes when it comes to my Transformers.  And even though Starscream will be displayed in robot mode, I think his alt mode looks pretty damn good.

After I took these pictures, I was able to get those little bars on top to actually snap into place.

I think these are priced fairly at $4.99, and were a totla surprise find.  I’m also thinking that this may be my favorite Transfromer in this scale.  Very cool!

Who’s your mummy?

The past few days have been cloudy and a bit chilly.  Leaves have not started to change or fall to the ground, but Fall is creeping in.  This is just the perfect mix for me to start getting into the Halloween spirit.

The Christmas Tree Shop is a goldmine when it comes to seasonal decorations and whatnot.  This little buddy cost me only one dollar.

It’s a pen, with a pop off mummy guy.  Now you can click your pen with a purpose!  It’s kind of awkward to write with because it is top heavy.  Now honestly, I wouldn’t have bought this pen without the cute little mummy on top.  Just look at him.

This pen will be in my inner coat pocket everyday I need a coat.  The Christmas Tree Shop always comes through.  I strangely fell like doing a crossword puzzle.
