Re: Reids Other Collection


I've been itching lately to get some pics up of some of my recent Transformer acquisitions. So without further ado.

Just a few random acquisitions. A Takara "Pepsi" Convoy, G1 Commemorative Decepticon Piranacon, and a Chinese KO Devastator. --Log in or sign up to see linked image content----Log in or sign up to see linked image content----Log in or sign up to see linked image content----Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

This has been the real source of my excitement lately. I've grabbed a few Masterpiece figures recently, most notably the new Hasbro MP Soundwave and Acid Storm. I really LOVE these figures. On the one hand I wish there were more to choose from here in the US, and on the other, they're so dang expensive that having a release once a year is probably enough. --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

Lastly, the current state of my Soundwave focus. --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

There are a few things going on in this picture. The Transformers Music Label Soundwaves in the little black boxes, a really nice pre-rub G1 Soundwave, in box with unapplied stickers, a few Pre-transformers cassettes, the Hasbro and Takara MP's, Encore Soundblaster, the GIANT Chinese KO Soundwave, and a Commemorative Series Reissue.

I'm really happy with how its coming along. I'd love to get great big acrylic cases for all these stuff, MP's and otherwise, but there just isn't the money yet, and when there is, I want to use it on more figures, not acrylic! emoticon

Thanks for looking!
Reid

Really nice Transformers collection, Reid! I really like the Masterpiece Soundwaves. I see that you've got both the Hasbro and Takara versions. I love that the Hasbro one included all of the tapes. I also really like the Soundblaster figure. That Pepsi Convoy is really cool too.

Thanks Johnny! Yeah, I was pretty excited to get the MP Soundwaves. The Hasbro one was a pain to try and track down, I was calling TRU's every day for a couple weeks to see if they had any in. But it was worth it in the end. The fact that he has all the tapes is just awesome!

Re: Reids Other Collection


I suppose its about that time to do an update on my recent acquisitions. Been focusing pretty hard lately on transformers. This is a BAPE exclusive Convoy (Optimus, obviously). BAPE, which is short for "A bathing ape in lukewarm water" is a Japanese clothing company that teamed up with Takara to do some Transformers inspired clothing, as well as 3 exclusive Convoys, this green one, the grey one which is seen next, and a red one. I got the red one, but it was pretty beat up, so I sent it back to the seller in dissatisfaction. Oh well, I'll get another soon. I REALLY like this green one. I enjoy seeing Optimus in different color options, the green is great, and I love the green camo trailer.

There is a thin layer of plastic wrap surrounding this one, so it looks a bit damaged in the pic, but it mostly is just the plastic wrap reflecting things oddly.

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

Next is a bunch of Masterpiece TF's I've gotten lately. I'm really trying to make a dent in this collection since there aren't SOOO many, but I just dont have too many Takara's, so I've got a ways to go before I'm caught up.

This first one is Soundblaster, which I LOVE, since its both a masterpiece, and adds to my ever growing "Soundwave" focus.

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

The ever awesome Grimlock! I have the US Hasbro version of this figure, but wanted it on the Takara box too. This is a recent reissue, which can be seen by the 30th Anniv. sticker on the box. I still need to get the 25th. Anniv. [sign in to see URL] though the only difference is that sticker. emoticon

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

In keeping with Grimlock, this is my Hasbro Asia, Cybertron Con exclusive Grimlock. I LOVE this box! And I'm so incredibly happy with it in general. Other than a VERY tiny dent on the bottom left corner, the box is perfection. I hope to get these graded someday and I have no doubt it will grade very high.

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

Masterpiece Generation 2 Sideswipe. I find it interesting that given the small number of masterpiece figures they've released so far, they would choose to release a G2 version of a figure. I suppose it wasn't too hard since they already had the molds for G1 Sideswipe, Tigertrack, and Red Alert, but still an interesting decision. I like the figure though.

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

I didn't take a picture of them because they're sealed up in special little boxes from BBTS, but I also have the masterpiece Sideswipe, Tigertrack, Prowl, Bluestreak, and Smokescreen. Just need to get my hands on a Red Alert and I'll have all the recent Lamborghini Countaches and Datsun Z's taken care of. I'm reluctant to buy these off ebay though, since there are so many knock-offs out there.

Speaking of knock-off's, this is a Chinese KO Sideswipe. He was cheap and I liked the idea of a gold variant. Wish the box was in nicer shape, but buying these KO's from China, they rarely arrive in perfect condition. I was a bit surprised how beat up it was considering it was boxed, not just thrown in a mailer envelope like they often are. Oh well though.

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

Finally rounding out the TF's is a special edition Linkin Park Soundwave. I threw RT in the pic just for scale. I was impressed at how big the box is on this figure. I was very happy to add it! Basically this is a gold version of Soundwave, Lazerbeak, Buzzsaw, Ravage, and Ratbat.

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

And this is a shattered glass Soundwave vs. Blaster. Idea here being that in this storyline the decepticons are the good guys and the autobots are the bad guys, so there is a more good guy color scheme on Soundwave, and a darker color scheme on Blaster. I love the box art.

Lastly, my 3 SH Figuarts Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. White, Green, and Red Rangers. I am eager to get the others and finish off this set, but have been so TF hungry lately that these have taken a back seat. I really like these figures a LOT though. My fiance actually got me the Green and Red rangers as a birthday gift, they're the first toys she's bought me! I think she did a pretty nice job!

So thats it for now. Thanks for looking!

Great stuff, Reid. Especially love the Soundwave stuff. That Soundblaster is awesome! I usually don't go too crazy with the Masterpiece repraints, but I've really been thinking about picking that one up. Especially since it comes with Ratbat. Not to mention that Soundwave with the black color scheme just looks cool!
