Wishlist updated...part 2

Hasbro Armada Powerlinx Optimus Prime shipped out from US 21/1/10... received on 28/1/10 but wtf...seller sent me the normal Armada Optimus Prime instead!! Seller offered refund of USD10... bought another Powerlinx Prime loose, complete instead...local seller some more...

Hasbro Costco Exclusive Optimus Prime + Overload bought! Awaiting shipping from US... now to find Jetfire to complete the whole set... another headache, seller has yet to dispatch my item...now filing a complaint thru Ebay...just filed claim with Paypal 10/1/10... yeaa...good news!! Seller has shipped it via EMS...

Sonokong Armada Overload bought! Shipping from HK...cheap, after conversion >RM130...Takara version will cost slightly more than double. Cheapest found so far RM280 MIB... item received in good condition 9/1/10...yeaaa....my Powerlinx Magna Jet Convoy completed!!

Next on my lists :
1. TRU Magna Convoy...found the source but the problem is how to conclude the transaction via COD...hmmm.... gosh...item SOLD!

2. Lucky Draw Armada Optimus Prime...this would definitely be the ultimate collection but at RM5450.00, I would seriously need to think about owning it...not to mention, where the heck am I going to find that amount of money??? Just imagine the amount of chap fan I could be eating in months (maybe years...lol)...

Wishlist updated...

My 2010 Magna Jet Convoy wishlist updated :

Hasbro Powerlinx Optimus Prime MIB on the way from Ebay US... this should complete wishlist no. 2...

Adding in Hasbro Armada Optimus Prime* and Takara Armada Jetfire later today...yea yea...that should be wishlist no. 6 (Ooopsss...wasn't in the list earlier)

* note : the only difference between the Hasbro and Takara version is the color of the shoulder area and the so-called fish ears which is gold and yellow respectively...

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...
