Latest Acquisitions

I'm at a time in my collecting when I'm in a reorganizing shift by getting rid of a number of my newer figures, but for some reason I couldn't help but pick these guys up at my local Walmart.


Optimus Prime & Autobot Roller
 The only reason I picked Prime up was because "Autobot Roller" was included and
that he also "transforms" into a mini figure as well.








Autobot Cosmos & Payload

This set is probably my favourite out of the bunch.  I always felt Cosmos from the cartoons was a bit of a goof (maybe it was the voice that they gave him which turned me off) but this mold with its articulation and vibrate green colouring is absolutely fantastic.






Autobot Skids

Now this was a lucky find for me.  After walking into my TRU fully expecting to be disappointed as per usual I was pleasantly shocked to find this lone Skids out in front of the other Generations figures.  Pushing my wife to the ground, I hurriedly tore him off the hanger and after picking my wife up, I excitedly explained that a number of fellow online bloggers were having issues finding him.


........and no, I didn't really knock my wife to the ground.




These next Kre-o figures I bought just because they are main charcters and they were on sale for $2.99.


I like how they gave Megs his arm cannon.












KRE-O Abominus

Abominus was on sale for $6.47 so for half price this was a good buy as well.



Swerve & Flanker

Swerve was bought based on his potrayal in the comics.



 




All in all, a few fun purchases that didn't break the bank and won't take up a lot of space in the closet.
