New haul for the month...

Finally, a haul albeit a tiny one...literally and physically...haha..

WST Prime and Megatron VSX Gift set...

Apparently, this is an exclusive from Hobby Dengeki magazine. WST is not really my cup of tea but since I got it pretty cheap, well...just another addition to my existing Prime collection then :)

Omega Sentinel...

Eh? Didn't I post this earlier?

Anyway, with the Omega Sentinel, I completed 2 things :

1. reunites both the Omega brothers ie. Omega Sentinel and Omega Supreme
2. completes the Big Bots series

No wait....am I seeing double here?

2 Omega Sentinels? Wowwww...Yup, I can even afford to display one while keeping one MISB!

Enjoy...the pics once again...

Fish heads COMPLETED!!!

No, it has nothing to do with fish head curry or assam fish head...wonder why the sudden hunger pangs? Hmm...

Armada Primes series aka Fish heads (check out the head and you'll understand what I meant) is finally completed with my last conquest of the TRU Magna Convoy set!

For the benefit of all, there are actually 6 redeco of the same mold : (lucky draw piece excluded)

1. Hasbro Armada Optimus Prime
2. Takara Armada Optimus Prime
3. Hasbro Armada Powerlinx Optimus Prime
4. Hasbro Kmart exclusive Optimus Prime
5. Hasbro Costco Optimus Prime
6. Takara TRU exclusive Optimus Prime / Magna Convoy

....and I HAVE THEM ALL!!! Hahahah...evil laugh...

Check out the TRU exclusive Magna Convoy set (ie. Powerlinx Optimus Prime + clear red Overload)...

Cute stuff...

Are these cute stuff KOs? Whatever it is, they are nice...and cheap!

1. Clear black wst nemesis prime
2. Clear wst G2 prime



The yellow brigade...


Finally, got my Sam's Club yellow Optimus Prime! aka yellow fire brigade :)

Item is loose, complete but wth, still a rare item...

With this, my God Fire Convoy collection is near completion, only missing the TRU Omega Prime and Cybertron Giftset... the latter is available on Ebay but not so keen to own as the differentiation vs the normal God Fire Convoy is not significant enough... God Magnus is similar to the Sam's Club version ie. the darker legs which I already have...Fire Convoy has a dark (black colored) chest piece which is the only difference...

Hmmm....the former at RM1.8-2k on Ebay...should I get that or BIB Brave Max??? Tough choice huh?

red and yellow brigades...

KO prime?

If you define anything that is non-Takara or Hasbro as KO, then this piece from Masterminds Creation is definitely high-end KO.

This is the brand new Knight Morpher Commander KM-01. This "Optimus Prime" transforms into a train instead of a truck (refer 2nd pic).

My Prime collection continues...

More Optimus Prime...

From left : Machine Wars Optimus Prime (MISB), Action Masters Optimus Prime (loose)












Machine Wars Optimus Prime (US version) has the same mold as its European counterpart (Thunderclash). Only the colors differ and the latter was supposingly the original mold to be produced.

I've been hunting for the Action Masters OP since I first laid eyes on it on Ebay :p but a MISB-condition costs a bomb, hence had to settle for a loose, complete one instead (for only a fraction of a MISB one, of course)...

Now, hunting for Thunderclash...heheh...

Wishlist updated...

My 2010 Magna Jet Convoy wishlist updated :

My Top 3 hauls of 2009...

Last year was the "re-birth" of my TF haulings after a hiatus of 2 years...it was also timely in view of the re-kindled interest due to screening of the 2nd TF movie...

One could noticed the frenzy transactions in the market which has also resulted in rocket-high prices of selected items and sadly to say, I too jumped on the bandwagon...

It was another year of heavy investments...hopefully, it had been a fruitful one...I believe I had forked out few grands here and there (not to mention, the Japanese anime haulings as well...).

Hence, I thot it would be nice to recap some of my haulings here, mainly focusing on what I believe would have been my Top 3 of last year...

So, enjoy...in no particular order / sequence...

No. 1 - Ginrai collection (Godginrai, Fire Guts and Nucleon Quest)

No. 2 - Primes MP collection (MP01, MP01b, MP04)

No. 3 - Fire Convoys collection (Hasbro RID Optimus Prime, Takara RID Fire Convoy)

One haul which is still in the making / work in progress if I may say...would be the Magna Jet Convoy collection, consisting of :

1. Takara Armada Optimus Prime + Jetfire + Overload (completed)
2. Hasbro Armada Powerlinx Jetfire + Ultra Magnus (missing Optimus Prime)
3. Hasbro K-Mart Exclusive Optimus Prime + Jetfire (missing Overload)
4. Hasbro Costco Optimus Prime + Jetfire + Overload (all missing, found a source for them though but cost is rather high on this set...hmm...)
5. Takara TRU Magna Convoy (still looking for one...again, this set costs a bomb too...sigh...if only money grows on trees...haha)

Looks like those missing ones would be my targets for 2010...together with many others...haha...

New hauls...

Last haul of 2009...

To accompany his RID brothers, here's the Titanium Optimus Prime...bought from Ebay US.

(err....am I seeing DOUBLE here??)



My Japanese anime collection...

First post of the new year 2010... yippee... but non-TF related!!

It's nice to be able to showcase my Japanese anime figures collection (finally)....after my 3 days spring-cleaning exercise at home...

.... and please, no nose bleed ok? lol...
