Another impressive haul, BB!

I just found the PS3 Ghostbusters game for $10! Yay! I've been looking for it!
Also Skids found the Marvel Legends Venom, with all his McFarlane-y goodness.

BAM two in a row!

Yesterday was good for me, I found TR Blaster, and Lego Disney Minifigures Maleficent. (Been looking for her!)
AND Series two of I Am Elemental (a toy line I helped fund on Kickstarter) arrived!

I still can't believe we actually got Leader-class mass release robots that turn into boom boxes in this day and age.

Anyways, a light month (for good reason given last month):
-Combiner Wars Liokaiser giftset
-RID2 3-step Energon Boost Bumblebee
-RID2 3-step Stealthasaurus Rex Grimlock
-RID2 3-step Drift (original color scheme)
-Rescue Bots Hoist (2.0 version)

Not much lately, though I did get some much-appreciated help from my aunt in Canada in snagging some of the Mini-Con Weaponizers:
-RID2 Hyperchanger/3-step Bisk (The transformation for this guy is SO MUCH FUN-- you split the entire toy into thirds and rotate the side sections around the midsection before collapsing them together again, transformed. This is what all simplistic TFs should be like.)
-RID2 legion Springload (YEEESSSSSS)
-RID2 legion Starscream
-RID2 Sawtooth (single-packed version)
-RID2 Lancelon (single-packed version)
-RID2 Windstrike (single-packed version)
-RID2 Decepticon Dragonus (Weaponizer, single-packed version)

Always impressive, BB!

I recently got TR Hotrod, Blowpipe, and Getaway. And I guess, Weirdwolf is in the mail, I ended up spending a little more than I liked because... I wanted free shipping on Amazon, and I didn't look that it'd been marked up. Darn you Amazon! I tried to cancel, but apparently it was too late. Oh well, at least I got 'im.

Okay, so Weirdwolf is a great figure, but he's got a fundamental problem His transformation breaks the hinge holding the cockpit hatch in place, a smaller red hinge keeps it functional, but still. That sucks especially since I'd accidentally spent extra money on him. The red hinge is made of a slightly rubberier plastic so you sometimes have to arrange the part to make sure it's in its proper place. I don't know how they let that slip out...

Yeah, I've heard about that-- which is all the more of a shame as he's my 2nd-favorite Titans Return toy so far, next to Triggerhappy. Luckily mine doesn't seem to have that problem, at least not yet. I'm hoping the inevitable repaint (if I had to guess, as Carnivac for one of the $100 giftsets) fixes the problem.

Bit of a busy month-ish time period with the release of TLK and the other lines not stopping-- I'm at over 3500 TFs now:

-Titans Return "Chaos On Velocitron" set
-TR Broadside w/ Blunderbuss
-TR Sky Shadow w/ Ominus
-Cyber Battalion Jetfire
-Cyber Battalion Prowl (Transfan2's online shop had this guy and Jetfire for a ridiculously low price considering how rare these are at the moment-- only ~$25 each. He could've easily sold these for three times that on eBay... glad he didn't!)
-TFSS 5.0 Pretender Optimus Prime w/ Hi-Q
-TFSS 5.0 Pretender Megatron w/ Spacewarp (Wonderfully executed, FunPub! Only 3 toys from you guys left-- Toxitron, Counterpunch, and the "mystery" 5.0 figure next month. I'll miss you guys...)
-Rescue Bots Bumblebee (jet)
-Rescue Bots Heatwave (dragon)
-Rescue Bots Brushfire (my favorite Rescue Bot so far in terms of looks)
-Combiner Force Activator Sideswipe w/ Great Byte
-Combiner Force legion Blurr
-Combiner Force "Crash Combiner" Skysledge & Stormhammer
-Combiner Force 1-Step changer Optimus Prime
-Combiner Force 1-Step changer Bumblebee

-TLK Turbo Changer Optimus Prime
-TLK Turbo Changer Hound
-TLK deluxe Bumblebee
-TLK deluxe Barricade
-TLK deluxe Dinobot Slash

-TLK voyager Grimlock
-TLK voyager Optimus Prime (this guy and Berserker are particularly brilliantly engineered, IMO)
-TLK Knight Armor changer Grimlock
-TLK Knight Armor changer Optimus Prime
-TLK Knight Armor changer Bumblebee
