Just to be on the safe side I went ahead and reserved a room for the GRC.
I've never been to Florida. Never really wanted to go.
However, I'd kinda like to go to Epcot and stuff.
My god! Even in the package he's beautiful.
Takara really knows how to do transparent figures! He's goddamn pretty!
He and Crystal Convoy will make sweet sweet love on the shelf together.
Looks like he's number 2222 in the collection too.
A Transformer I've had on order for what seems like a year now will arrive tomorrow.
TFU Universe Windrazor, Ransack, Stockade, Overcharge, Sky Shadow, Scanvenger, Longview, Snow Cat, Treadshot, and Crosshairs. So... Ya think Hasbro is gonna trot out Mini-Con repaint sets every time they need to keep some names in use?
Found this the other day. Some of them are pretty cool repaints.
I know I mentioned something once and never followed up on it.
Anyway... in 2010 I hope to become a father.
No. I won't be birth'n no babies or such. I'll leave that to The Cousin and Hoop.
No. I've decided to adopt a child. Actually, I hope to adopt siblings. Two boys or a boy and a girl.
My life is surprisingly stable except for the bad back and knees and I'm not getting younger.
I'm staring at 40 right now and I realized something several months ago.
I had always wanted to be a parent. And somehow along the way I ignored that and went about other business.
But I realized that deep down the urge never went away. I just suppressed it and said "Oh... it won't happen."
Well... in 2010 I'm going to do my best to make it happen.
So hopefully by this time next year I'll be a father.
And yes... there will be a time in the future when even this little downsized Crack Den of mine has to become a child's bedroom.
And ya know something?
I'm cool with that.
I guess I won't really call it a movie figure since it doesn't actually appear in the movie.
At least I doubt it.
The only reason I bought him was because of his great helicopter paint deco.
The news copter is great.
Just think of him as being Arnie Pie's chopper.
I love me some Lio Convoy!
This is quite a nice repaint too. Hell... I've got this damn figure in so many other versions I'm surprised I got excited about it. (Though Botcon Razorclaw kicked all sorts of robot ass!)
I'm extremely happy that Hasbro chose to actually give him Lio Convoy's history instead of just doing their usual "Oh... Optimus Prime turned into a lion" or some shit.
Leo Prime IS NOT AND HAS NEVER BEEN Optimus Prime!!!
I don't care what Hasbro calls them now either due to losing the names or trying to remove the bomb damage aspect of their original names.
They will always be Shrapnel, Bombshell, and Kickback to me.
They were were $35 each or something. Way too much for my tastes these days.
This'll sound stupid but I probably wouldn't have felt bad if I'd bought the TarakaTomy reissues at that price but just to have these here from TRU?
The real G1 Perceptor I have is missing all his accessories including his microscope. Not much a Perceptor at all really.
Then again I did only pay like $3 for him out of some bin at either the Cowtown toy show or Botcon.
Funny. There used to be a time I could remember every stupid minute detail of where I got a figure. Now? Not so much.
