The packaging for both figures was a little battered, but the figures are okay and I display them out of the box. Any comments on these two figures are welocmed.


er...did you get them already or are you just still considering buying them?

If you guys are looking for some TF movie figures, Check out specialty shops in Makati

I saw

Final Battle Jazz
Dropkick
Barricade
G1 Repaint Starscream
Thundercracker
Rescue Ratchet
Longarm
Arcee (deluxe class)


They also have a Musiclabel Soundwave in both colors and the Rumble and Frenzy earphones


I finally managed to get my Longarm


Do you know the name of these specialty shops?


Those shops would be greattoys and best toys
They also have Optimash Prime :P


What about the prices? That will be one important factor to decide to visit the place or buy the item.

Here's my latest report...

Greenhills prices on some items i had the interest to inquire:

Deluxe Scorponok 700
Deluxe Dreadwing 700
Deluxe Swindle 700
Deluxe Wreckage 700
These cheapest base prices are still negotiable. Depending on your connection or skills. Some shops had them at 800, 1000, and up.

MP Skywarp 4200~4500. Cheapest last price is 4000.

Leader Brawl 3899~4000

Deluxe Payload 1000

Deluxe Longarm 1200~1800
Deluxe Dropkick 1200~1800
Some shops will get restock tomorrow, possibly agree to a price as low as 1100 or 1000. Just my own speculation.

Takara G1 minibots keychain
Pack of 4 at 680~700.
Includes Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Gears, Brawn.
Awesome little toys if you detach the keychain.

Metroplex is only worth it IMHO if you can get him below SRP...Primus is totally worth the dough you spend, but if you can get it lowered, much better. 8)

Is Cybertron Metroplex the one that transforms into some sort of construction or demolition vehicle?

I saw metroplex in our sm and gaisano mall. It was at SRP. Since its a leader class, it retails for 2999.95. The Primus sighting was relayed to me by a friend. It is at Gaisano in Butuan City. I'm going there this weekend to verify it. I'm not sure about the price.

yeah, i think 3k's the going price for Metroplex. wait for the sale, at SM (though i think this has only happened once to me) if you know in advance that there is a 3-day and you have an Advantage card, try asking for promos. last time, i got another 10% off the discounted price for a total of 20%. this was during the first day of the sale, and the promo was additional 10% during the first hour of the sale (10 AM-11 AM).

who knows, maybe you'll luck out and get 20% off Metroplex! that's huge savings. 8)

For me, I don't think it's worth it. This version of Metroplex has been collecting dust in SM toys stores for months. Possibly even years. Been seeing those since before i started collecting, before 2006. They don't seem to move.

Nice sig zemps! Lioconvoy is a great toy.

I may have to wait for their Halloween sale. I thinks thats the earliest 3day sale before Xmas. Hopefully he's still there. Any thoughts on Cybertron toys? I don't have any yet.

I don't have a Cybertron toy yet and he's the only one available. Have you try any from that line?

Nope. I collect only Classics, Movie, and a few Alternators.
But i've seen some cool Cybertron series toys.
Metroplex looks acceptable in robot mode. But the alt mode is totally whacked!

I don't like Cybertronian alt modes. It doesn't mean anything to being a Transformer.

i have Smokescreen.great alt mode (based on a luxury car) and recolors (he really matches G1 Smokescreen!) but PITA transformation. his neck looks too long in robot mode. but pretty solid figure nonetheless.

a have a friend here who collects Armada, Energon & Cybertron. he showed me a few of his Cybertron figs and they're all pretty good, as in the toys are more solid than the classics and movie line. funky alt modes too. 8)

my advice? if you still have some Cyb deluxes hanging around, might as well buy 'em. a pretty solid and fun toy line.

if you have the cash to spare, then go get him bro. 8)

he's pretty much of a shelf warmer these days, but chances are there are only 1 of him per mall, or so i think. so if another collector gets him then pretty much you'll have to look somewhere for your Primus fix.

just a friendly reminder though...if you're getting him at SRP, better think that at that price, you can get at least 4 deluxes. just a thought bro, go get him if you're decided. :D

Thanks for the reminder zemper. I would really think twice though, if only there were deluxe figures available here locally worth getting . its been so long since my last transformer fix.

When you're in Metro Manila, you can try the major malls. Within the malls there are also independent toy shops that carry various collectibles.

Anybody from metro manila in this thread?

Viramall at Greenhills. Also other parts of that compound. There's Shoppers something, just beside Viramall, behind the theater. I think it's 2nd floor or 3rd floor. You'll find more than 10 shops to choose from.

Also, most SM Toy Kingdom shops. But these offers official release at official prices only. Line up very limited.
