What's On Your Transformer Shelf?

I was over at my friend "M's" house today and he brought me to his office to show off what he had on his shelves at the moment.  You will have to excuse the quality of the photography as since this was impromptu I had to use my phone.  He is still in the process of looking for some locking glass display cabinets so he only has the one shelf for now…but what he has on it is still pretty sweet.

I normally like to include as much relevant info as I can when I do my posts, but there are

Call Me Ruination or Baldigus…Just Don't Call Me Late To The Fight!

This is all started with a name…..Ruination. Hook, line and sinker. They had me.  Okay, so it is basically Bruticus but that doesn't matter to me.  Anything with a name like that I had to have!  Before you think that's a weird way to buy something, take some time to consider how we as a society have been conditioned to buy products based on looks, names, or colours alone and then it starts to make some sense.

Gorgeous animated artwork on one side of the box
BOTTOM RIGHT BIG LETTERS : Japanese Baldigus (バルディガス Barudigasu)
Just a completely sexy looking box! It has everything that I love the most when looking at packages:

  • I prefer figures that come in boxes
  • I don't understand any of the writing on it (it just tends to lend a little bit of mystery and fascination to the piece)
  • Fantastic artwork,
  • It's from Japan thus making it a rarer piece for us living in North America.
This was actually the first piece that I ever purchased directly from Japan; the sellers name

Continuum - An IDW Transformers Reading

For us who have already started, and for those who have not yet opened themselves to the fantastic new world of the IDW Transformers comics, I post this as a consideration on how to relive again, or start anew your love and appreciation for some old and new found characters.  (Thank you Maz for your inspiring post on the "Power of Fiction").

I've been a comic reader for as long as I can remember., mind you within that span of time, my interests have waned in and out.  I can't remember how or what made me initially pick

G2 Megatron (MISB)

So as you can see from my previous post, something arrived in the mail on Friday…..and this was it. (Heroic Decepticon, not surprisingly, picked out what it was).

I've been looking for quite some time trying to find one in as good a condition this, and at a reasonable price of course.

Final price eBay.....$144.  Unfortunately, as I mentioned in my pre-post, this particular

New Package Arrival

This big box just arrived today. I was really angry when I first saw it; first off, it was just sitting outside my front door.  I don't know how many times this has happened to me, and even moreso to my friend "M".  I'm glad I don't live in a bad area, but nonetheless, it wouldn't take much for someone just to be driving around to stop and take it.

Someone played soccer with it.

 This is just ridiculous!

My second complaint is that I don't know who to blame this on. Was this a result of the

Robot Coffee Points VIII

Here's a piece that's relevant to me since I have a son just about to turn two, and while he is a few years away from asking questions like this I'm sure it will come at some point.

SOUNDWAVE : "Wet foot, dry foot, high foot, low foot.   THE END"
FRENZY : "Daddy, can you tell me what music was like when you were younger?"

SOUNDWAVE : "Hmmmm…. now that I think about it, I think I can do better than tell you."

Diaclone K.O. Constructicons - Devastator Part 4

These three guys were part of a lot purchase I did on eBay back in 2012.  Though they may not be legit versions, as a knock off they did a good job, and so I'm going to throw them in as a continuation of my Devy postings.

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

G2 Yellow MOSC Constructicons - Devastator Part 3

So in my third instalment of my Devy collection here are the only pieces I have, for now, of the G2 Yellow Constructicons that I purchased back in early 2012.

Unfortunately, I paid no where near the steal prices that I did for my G2 Orange MOSC

G2 UK Constructicons Grey Parts - Devastator Part 2

In continuation of my Devastator theme, here's another set that I picked up earlier this year.
$14 each + $2 shipping....all in all, I would say a good price .

These European-exclusive versions of the Constructicons are yellow, but with the darker purple from the original toy instead of the lighter Generation 2 shade, with a few

G2 Orange MOSC Constructicons - Devastator Part 1

I was lucky enough to stumble across this listing for a complete lot of 6 MOSC G2 Orange Constructicons along with its 5 Crazy Devys Most Wanted add ons back in 2012 from eBay.  I can't remember exactly, but I do remember talking him down in price as well.

An awesome and terrifying combination of all six Constructicons; Scrapper, Scavenger, Bonecrusher, Hook, Long Haul, and Mixmaster, Devastator is purely brutal and his main
