Do you mean Mindset? I bought him purely for he obscure G2 reference :grin:.


Didn't mean Mindset. Was listing non RTS figures whose molds were reused for RTS.

Is Lockdown considered Movie? His aesthetics really don't fit in with it.

Btw, more on topic, finally got ahold of the mandatory Generatiosn Wheeljack :)



Congrats on finding Wheeljack! I found one mine a few weeks ago on sale (the last 'Generations' left at my Target!). As for Lockdown, I know he appeared in the movie-verse fiction in that form. Poor Breacher. D:

Really? Did not know that

As for getting Wheeljack, not really an accomplishment on my part. I can't really shop around at toy stores so I do most of my purchasing online, and Wheeljacks are readily available on HasbroToyShop.

Got my first Classics/Generations last month with Wheeljack. Fell in love and felt like a kid back in 2nd grade again. My only criticism is that his waist/hips should be able to pull down below the windshield in bot mode for both looks and added height. Other than that, he's an ideal G1 Wheeljack. Gotta find Tracks now!

Found RTS Bumblebee at Ross and, though I was less impressed, he's still a great representation of G1 Bee and I can get some great poses out of him for display. I just wish he had a gun, wrist articulation and more leg and ankle articulation. Also wish he had a waist, but I guess I'm nitpicking. Love the head sculpt, big feet, squat proportions, and transformation scheme.

Picked up Kup at TRU. He's a good representation of the character, but he seems less inspired than other Generations figures. His legs are bland, though I do love his big feet with great ankle articulation, and the panels on his forearms are too large. I love his rifle, color scheme, head sculpt, and the automorph torso transformation.

Huge thanks to DinoJack86 for hooking me up with Perceptor, Warpath, and especially Jazz. DinoJack86 is a pleasure to deal with and look forward to buying from him again.

Perceptor is a little lanky in the arms and thighs with a tricky transformation and an unstable bot mode, but he still looks great displayed in bot mode. Accurate color scheme, I love the knobs on his forearms, his foldable chest plate, and his retractable shoulder cannon with translucent sight.

Warpath's blockiness really works for him. He looks tough, though I would love wrist and ankle articulation.

Jazz is like the crown jewel of Classics molds! Absolute perfection. The designers going the extra mile with his speakers feature is just the icing on the cake. Awesome.

Went to Marshall's yesterday and they had Kup, Wheeljack, and Junkheap for $7. Picked up Junkheap. Now I HAVE to get Wreck-Gar! Will no doubt display him riding Junkheap in bike mode. The legs are weird, they're uneven in length and articulation, but no problem - he's a Junkion! I love his waist articulation and his battle axe! I'm impressed with details such as the translucent light on his forehead, the sculpting of his hips, the turrets on his chest, and his handlebars.

Sears does have a very tiny toys section, but most of the stuff is on clearance and they wont have any more toys. While being there, might as well go transformers hunting.

I got TWO TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE PROWL, MOC FOR ONLY 12.50$ EACH! Of course, I open one to play with and the other will be kept sealed. Unfortunately, it was covered in price labels, but for the price I paid...
I also found there a Cyberverse Shockwave for 16$ instead of 23$. I never found him anywhere so that's a nice bonus.

Finally, in that shopping mall, RiD Shoundwave was everywhere. Full price at 18$, but I have him at last. (Forget to find him in my neighborhood.)

I'm very happy right now. So, any of you guys foud some miracle hauls in store?

You lucky dog! Congratulations. I'll get my hands on Prowl eventually, but I'd kill to find him for less than $20.

Picked up Generations Darkmount, I've been wanting this thing for ages. :) I never realized he had so many extra joints though, WOW. So many ways to move this guy, so many great poses, and a pickaxe/cannon for a weapon? What can't Darkmount do? =P~

I do have to say though...that kibble kind of annoying some aspects, but it's also a nice weapon rack for his grand total of three clip system weapons. xD Mine also has rather loose thigh swivels, is this a regular problem of the mold?

My Darkmount had the same issues. Eventually I sold him to a local hobby shop. He is a cool looking mold, but I grew tired of having to constantly adjust his kibble. Also, I found he isn't very well balanced. :BOT:

RAcast,
You shouldn't have any trouble with the heel balljoints or any points of articulation on him in terms of wear. He was actually pretty durable as I transformed him back and forth and I owned him for almost a solid year (04/11-03/12). :BOT:

I def play with my Transformers. :grin:

I just got Classics Cliffjumper and Skywarp the other day. I just got back into collecting when these guys were out at retail. Had both of them in my hands at the time but said "I already have Bumblebee and Ramjet. I don't need repaints."

Boy do I regret that one now. Especially the Skywarp/Magnus pack. I could have bought 5 of those for 6 bucks each. Stupid stupid stupid.
Check out my collection!

Just scored a Classics Skywarp sans launchers and missiles at Salvation Army for less than $5.00. He was packed in with tons of Bionicle Happy Meal toys, some Star Wars stuff, Pokemon, G.I. Joe and others.
I figure broken down I paid less than a quarter for him.

I pioked up a Reveal the Shield Perceptor at ROSS for $4 the other day. I just picked up Universe Powerglide complete and Universe Silverbolt complete for $15 each. I'm attempting to complete my classics line by finding the remaining TF Universe figures I didn't pick from a few years back. I still need Iron Hide, Prowl, Sunstreaker, and Onslaught. If anyone has any of those they're willing to work out some sort of an agreement on, let me know. XD
