Weapon: Electro-burst Rifle
Got Sharkticon Megatron and Skylynx Friday. Nothing special with either.

Got Megatron with Chop Shop and Starscream with Waspinator from HTS today.

I really like both of these, but when displaying them with Optimus and Bumblebee, I noticed a few things that may or may not be known. Optimus can combine with Roller in vehicle mode. The tabs coming out of Roller's front connect into the slots in the bottom of Prime's legs/back end. It makes a trailer of sorts for Prime. You can also lock Blazemaster's rotors by pressing down slightly on them. Obviously, it was known Chop Shop connects to Megatron's tank mode. No secrets discovered on Starscream...yet.

Can't wait for Metroplex later this week.

TFWiki also made mention to this. Thought it was pretty neat, but I plan to shoehorn Roller in with my Classics Optimus Prime as extra armament and as a cute little partner. I wouldn't necessarily call it a trailer, but it is rather nifty.

Got Metroplex from Amazon today. Man is he huge. I almost broke off one of the bottoms of his feet when transforming him into robot mode because I forgot to fold them up, so be careful when you transform him to make sure all the parts are where they need to be. The head is really bothersome to me. For one thing, his visor does not rotate like it should, and nearly every time I transform him the helmet pops off a little.

Finally found my Sandstorm at retail yesterday. Like alot of people have said he really is a great remold/repaint and does seem like a whole new figure. The wheels do give it a dune buggy like feel. However like the the other two before he's getting displayed with the MPs since they're more in scale with those in robot and at least 1 vehicle mode. They're actually taller than my Sideswipe. I'll just customize a deluxe for him to go with my generations. An awesome figure he is though. You better get one if you havent yet!

Generations Bee and Trailcutter from the IDW series. Trailcutter A+ deluxe mold. This version of Bee in person I would say A-. The doors bother me that you can keep them in place while moving the arms other wise nice mold.

Masterpiece Soundwave :grin:

I called my local TRU and when they siad that they did indeed have him in stock, I hauled ass down there only to find non on the shelves.

Panic.

I grabbed one of the clerks and told him that I just spoke to someone on the phone less than an hour agao who notified me that there were some in stock. As it turns out, there was one left in the back (probably on an employee's desk).

Soundwave is pure awesomesause.

Now all I need is a Masterpiece Ratbat. No doubt they'll include him with the inevitable Masterpiece Soundblaster repaint.

Got a Trailcutter today. Sucks that he is so small compared to the usually shorter Autobots but he looks nice. One other thing and I dont know if it's been brought up before but his and so many others tech specs are all off compared to the original rankings. It;s so easy to just go online if not in their archives to get them right. Jeez!

A big part of my collection contains Generations/Classics/Universe/RTS (etc., etc...) Transformers. I just love these.

My newest (and favorite) TFs are 30th Generations Legends Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron and Starscream. All from either www.comictoys.nl or www.archonia.com (both Dutch/Belgian webshops).

FOC Grimlock from HTS via FedEx/USPS; saw 3 weeks ago at W*M, then a week later still there, by last week he was gone. Searched every local store (K-Mart, Target, W*M, TRU) to find--no luck; found one on ebay, got beat by an auto-bid at last seconds literally, no good prices on Buy It Now either. Thanx HTS.

I got a Classics Devastator, NIB for $75, at Retrocon. My wife's saving it for XMas, though. I told her she'd better find a good hiding place for it!

Walked into a Target and found both Hoist and Thundercracker! I already got Hoist at Walmart a bit ago, but Thundercracker was a new sighting for me. He looks epic next to FOC Screamer! Can't wait for the Skywarp to come out. Come on Hasbro... I am here... I am waiting.
