April Hauls 2019

Postby Thatotherguy » Wed Apr 03, 2019 12:42 pm

New month = new Hauls

Starting off strong with Siege Prowl and Ironhide arriving Monday and MP BW Megatron today.

Also, purchased the Borderlands remaster for PS4. Unfortunately won’t get much of chance to play it before I head off on a 3 week holiday.

Couple bits from Studio Series, thanks to weird NZ distribution....

SS Shatter - falls to bits as per reviews, but i like it, nice little figure, neat alt mode.

SS Scrapmetal - Was on the fence about these movie constructicons, but this guy alone might have sold me, he's awesome! Cool transformation, tight joints, nothing falling off lol, and both modes are just excellent! There was at least four of him at Kmart in Manukau.

SS Sideswipe - A nice new update, good all rounder really, love it!


Thanks Kmart!!

Shatter and scrap metal and from Kmart which get there stock from aus so it's not really our normal products hense the wave siege

Edit: so shatter doesnt have her eyes painted which takes away from the head alot, i used a gundam marker on that spot and it looks a ton better, scrapmetal looks very basic and could do with some reprolables plenty of good stickering space for it

a few hauls to report:

Picked up a few SS at farmers today.
Image

MP Megatron he's a beauty, but damn is he fiddly.
Image

filling some gaps in my Legend class collection. Still looking for a Devastator in ROTF colours.
Image

Excited to get my hands on a Go-Bot BugBite he was my Bumblebee growing up, I always wondered why he looked so different to his G1 cartoon but then I saw what G1 Ironhide looked like.

Quite a few things but this was the stand-out from today:

Image

Incredible thing it is. MP10 is my favourite TF so let's see how I go messing with this.

Not even a toon aesthetic fan so...

I haven't transformed it yet but I am blown away at how much this is the OP from my childhood. I thought I understood before but only now do I truly get why people are so enamoured by the toon aesthetic.

First haul post in an age for me.

Bitten by the bug again, oh well.

Studio Series Scrapmetal - Neat figure. Looking forward to building Devastator.

Siege Soundwave - Awesome! I think I'll be buying a lot more Siege.

Siege Ironhide.

POtP Slash

Also a bunch of Siege battlemasters.

Siege Ironhide yesterday. I really love this line. Best since, well, ages.

If you like the Bayverse forearm cannons you may like this. Used FOC Starscream's cannons.

Oh, and you don't need to remove them for transformation and his stock hammer-gun friction clips in between.

If you want the cannons to show the top detail then yep, you'll need to swap 'em.
Image

I ordered the gap-filler kit this morning. Completely unnecessary but I enjoy the figure enough to warrant it. Just a load of fun :)
