Philippines Transformers sightings

Postby Auto Bot » Sat Aug 25, 2007 12:32 pm

Can i do a posting for another country? Haven't seen one here yet.

Pls post your TF sightings in the Philippines here. As most sightings will probably be in Manila or Cebu only, it helps to indicate which specific mall or hobby shop, or specific place the toys are seen.

Thanks. :)

The Toy Kingdom at SM Cagayan de Oro slashed their classics by 25%. I got the bulk of my classics there. Now all that is left is classics Astrotrain. I saw a Cybertron Metroplex there too. Only one was left

Sure. No problem. I already got my BB Concept months ago.
If i find one, i can hold it for you.
If it's a problem bringing it to you, or you change your mind about it, i can always keep it.
But i'm not really into keeping more than one of each. So i won't be a greedy bad ass.

yo autobot, ya still got some beast wars figs to sell? :grin:

anyway, bad news here in iloilo, the SMs still haven't slashed their TF classic prices...garn! i called the toy sections earlier this morning and they all replied the same: no memo from their management. sigh.

i'm holding out for a replacement to my SS and Rodimus, i got a pretty bad batch of their 2-pack and i'm looking to get a proper SS & Rod the way they were released. my SS's cockpit glass in the nose area doesn't align with the rest of the cockpit glass, and my rod's right elbow is soooo loose right off the box, there's no possibility of bending it.

Is that the Classics?

There's a way to fix Rodimus' loose elbow. Take out the pin to separate the lower arm from the upper. Apply colorless nail polish to the portions where 2 piece meet and slide against each other. This will add micrometers of thickness to the plastic without harming it. Put back the pin. You'll have a brand new tight elbow.

I have to see your SS to be able to suggest possible remedy.

I don't have beast wars. All i have for sale right now is Skybite.

Maybe you can soften the plastic with a hairdryer then carefully push out the pin with a mini screwdriver.

I usually don't encourage softening the plastics or changing its consistency.

I've read in some thread here about how to punch out the pin without harming the plastic.

Basically dealing with the direction of the punch out.

If i can reacall which thread that is...

The one with flames.

I've seen one at the basement of Megamall. Forgot the shop name. It's near the LiL's Tamiya shop. Going for 2000Php, on consignment.

That's a couple of weeks ago. Haven't checked yet if it's still there.

i think some online shops have this... here are the links, some may not be updated so it's best to just email them if Alt Rodimus is available or not.

http://www.greattoys.net

http://www.wasabitoys.com

i think they also ship internationally.
