*sigh* Why do I get so angry sometimes...because this is my second attempt at this post. Thanks for nothing Google blogger. anyway, lets see if I can remember what I wrote down the first time (this will also teach me not to save before I do something else).
So here I am at Starbuck's (only because they have comfy big chairs to sit in...you think Tim's would have learned something by now).
I picked this beauty set up (along with one for my friend "M") from our dealer friend "E"; the 2013 WST Dinobots Vintage Edition Limited 888 Pieces. I can't get enough of these WST figures for some reason, especially the legit ones (ya, I know you 'tards, they are all essentially KO's, but I'm referring to the better made ones by companies like JustiToys and to a lesser extent individuals like Herotoymaker). I'll be doing a big post of all my WST's in the near future...I'll need a good chunk of free time on a day off or after the wife goes to sleep to pull them all out and do photos.
|Front box art - some bad mutherf#ckers|
|Read box art - Dino's treating Constructicons like yesterdays news.|
|Lift the flap - Cartoon accurate prehistoric beasts|
|Title on box front - "Hey, I can read Japanese, it says Vintage Edition"|
|Top left of front cover - "Me Swoop say, you only get 888 of me"|
|Inside flap - these guys definitely rowdy, arrogant and lowbrow...like me!|
Do you see the discrepancy with the profile of this set....last sentence....limited to 800 pieces....so then why on the cover does it say "888 PCS LIMITED" ?
|Not for children.....good thing I don't play by the rules byatches !|
- WST 5 Piece Dinorobot Dark Retribution Giftset (500 made; Black; TF Source exclusive)
- WST 5 Piece Dinorobot Giftset Comic Edition (300 made; Chrome and Silver; TF Source exclusive)
Here's pic of my friend "M's" Comic Book Edition boxset:

Now, here's the new one both of us just purchased; notice the difference (other than the photo quality...sorry I was using my iPhone at the time)
Maybe some pics of the inside will clear some things up:
|Cartoon accurate :|
- Red swoop chest
- Clear Slag legs
- chrome Slag horns
- Grimlock's neck piece dark clear
|Comic accuracte :|
- blue Swoop chest
- chrome Slag legs
- red Slag horns
- Grimlock's neck piece light clear
That's it for now. there are a few more pics I have to add that show a discrepancy I don't understand but I don't have them with me at the moment. They'll be up soon so keep an eye out.
Keep on transforming,
