Browning Destron M-1910 KO (Red & Blue ver.)

My Red and Blue Browning KO's have arrived!  There's actually 4 of them (two of each) in this box; two for me and two for my friend "M".  Here's just the tease as I had started to shoot them today but of course ran out of time due to family constraints.  I hope to do the rest of the shooting tomorrow and have everything up for you guys maybe even the same day.

Smallest WST G1 BAPE - "Convoy Reissue BAPE "

I's been almost a week now since my last real posting so I have to apologize. 

You start a site like this, and everything is gung-ho from the start.  I was doing good there for almost two months and then "real" life starts to take over.  This was really starting to bother me because I have all these ideas but to sometimes wait till family/work time is over, I'm just plain exhausted to do a nice photo shoot,  and some research, then write it up, and then proof/rewrite everything.....basically, I needed to put something up.  But, it couldn't just be anything.  It had to be something that is different that what you normally read from people......let me tell you,  when it arrived I was really pleased.

So here it is.....a green box.

"Me Grimlock say, anytime Dinobots are here then must be good!" 
I don't know why but I always have to talk like that when the Dinobots are around...I guess it's to pay

Masterpiece Acid Storm

Well, here it is,  Finally arrived....another, Seeker...damn, I mean Acid Storm.

I have also included the list of all the previous Seeker molds that have come before Acid Storm. to date, I only have Takara's Coronation Starscream, and Hasbro's Thundercracker and Acid Storm. We'll see how things progress if I end up getting the other ones.  Anyway, enjoy the read and the pics.

MP-01 Acid Storm is a green and black redeco of the MP-11 Starscream and is sold as a Toys R Us Exclusive.  His designation of "MP-01" falls in under a new Masterpiece toy line designed for the international market.

The Transformers Masterpiece is a secondary branch of the Transformers line made by Hasbro/Takara Tomy.  They are recreations of specific characters, either famous or from key scenes.  The MP's are significantly larger than their originals, with more detail, more complex transformation processes, and with more posability, while maintaining the integrity of their original visage.

A nice new packaging display
The first Seeker mold (MP-03) released back in 2006 was of course, Starscream.  He comes included with the following:

Feels Like a Masterpiece of A Storm Is Coming ......Maybe An Acid Storm ?

Looks like I should be receiving Masterpiece Acid Storm sometime today.  I'll keep you guys posted.  I do hope that this will be the last MP made with this mold.  I have watched a few reviews on it and one guy felt that there may be some degradation with it but that may just be his opinion.

I think most people that are into the MP line would love to see the coneheads and I'm sure that since they can get three figures out of it they'll pump it out somehow.

It seems that the Masterpiece figures are the new bread and butter winners for Hasbro; Transformers wise anyway.

Barring an un-forseen delivery mishaps, I will do a unboxing shoot today or tomorrow.

The Variables Pistol To Robot - aka Browning KO

I thought that this would be a excellent time for me to do a little review on this piece since my friend "M" and I should be receiving our blue and red Browning KO's in the mail shortly....providing there is no production issues. Here's the link for that posting.

This is a little piece that was part of a KO lot that I had purchased off of eBay back in 2012.  Total cost of the whole lot equally divided, I basically paid $25 for this figure with $4 shipping.

Ah...the good old days when you could buy your kid a gun from the store.

Here's a list of what was included in that lot:

G1 Predaking / Reissue Predaking / Mini KO Predaking

So......what are we going to talk about today......

I popped over to my friend's "M's" house on Friday and while he was showing me his TF shelf, he commented on how he was going to have to reorganize some things and put this or that away, so I figured this would be as good a time as any to take some quick pictures of some of his Predacons (yes, these are not all of them either).

So here is the overall display of what he had out.

BACK L-R : G1 boxed Razorclaw, Rampage & Tantrum, G1 Predaking, G1 boxed Headstrong & Divebomb
FRONT L-R : Mini KO Razorclaw & reissue Razorclaw, reissue Tantrum & Divebomb, Mini KO Rampage, reissue Rampage

TRU Shelves

I'm not sure what to say about these shelves so maybe I'll let the pics speak for themselves.  Hold on tight for this shit show of pics....

First off, here's the same shit that I see as soon as I walk down the aisle.  I always look at the bottom first since that's where they usually put the bigger boxes and the only good thing

Monstrosity Issue #1

It had been quite some time since I had read any comics....we're talking the span of years here.  And this is such a shame to me because other than movies, I don't believe that there is another form of entertainment that combine both the visual and literal art forms together without really any limitations.

Even injured and missing a fusion canon wouldn't convince me to mess with Megs.
Up until recently, I had been pretty focused with my comics sticking mainly to the likes of Wolverine,

Kabaya Dai Atlas, Sonic Bomber & Road Fire

I picked this three box set up earlier this year from my dealer friend "E" for $20.

Dai Atlas, Sonic Bomber & Road Fire
These are part of the Transformers candy toy series produced by the  Japanese confectionary company Kabaya.  Each individual toy is basically a snap together model kit with a sheet of stickers for detailing.

Browning M-1910 KO's Blue and Red Version Limited Edition

I was at work on Thursday and saw this info online at .

I was extremely surprised as I hadn't heard any whispers of this happening so I immediately called up my fellow TF hunter "M" and he was on board right away as well to place two orders  for each of these figures.

I still haven't really gotten into a lot of my figures yet, but we are both into KO figures (or I should say to the extent that as long as they are good quality KO's).  In some cases the KO's are even better than the originals in my opinion but I'll get into that later.

So this is just a posting to say that I have ordered these two figures and with any luck they should be arriving sometime early October at the latest.

This is what they come with :

Autobot Springer & TRU

I was sitting on my couch tonight and my phone went off.  It was my buddy "M" who said he was at our local TRU and that they had finally received in a new shipment, albeit of figures that have been out in the States for some time now.  So he was asking if I wanted him to grab me an Autobot Springer since he was getting one for himself.  "Sure, why not"

Here's some pics he took for me while he was there today.

Here's the two Springers "M" grabbed for us today.

WST Lot - Soundwave, Optimus, Starscream, Prowl & Megatron

Here’s my latest arrivals.  Won this lot in an auction off eBay recently for the great price of $65.  I already most of these figures with the exception of Soundwave and Starscream, and with Soundwave normally commanding the minimum price of $50 on eBay this whole purchase really was a steal.
I know WST figures really aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I really enjoy the detailing of the figures and when you combines them with big sets, like that of Metroplex and such, they just fit in perfectly for displaying.

Here’s a brief history and some pics of my WST's that just arrived that I had hinted at in my previous posting below this one.

New Arrivals

Just wanted to post a little tease since this item came in the mail today.  I'll do a full posting review on it within the week but for now I'll leave it like this.  Five items came inside this box.

My Local TRU Display

I was out yesterday running some errands and decided to check out my local Toys R Us.  This was my first visit in quite some time since my friend "M" and I have both managed to secure ourselves the Hasbro MP Soundwave and MP Acid Storm (but I'll talk about those two aquisitions when they arrive in the near future).  Let me tell you, the amount of gas, time and frustration that I'm saving myself is like a breath of fresh air. 

I hate you with a passion TRU and here is a picture to prove it :
