Takara Micromasters "Berserker" Six-Wing (White Chase version)

I don't know why but I love these guys! So much better than the all black or all red chase versions.

Takara Micromasters Six-Wing is the 1913th through 1918th Transformer that I've acquired.

Transformers Universe Ro-Tor, Skydive, Storm Jet, Fireflight, Air Raid, and Siverbolt

Ro-Tor, Skydive, Storm Jet, Fireflight, Air Raid, and Siverbolt are the 1782nd through 1793rd added to the Attic of Love.

Micromaster Superion is da bomb!

G1 Micromaster Blaze Master

Evebird gave me a Blaze Master. He's missing the peg that holds his blades on but such is life.

This is the 1730th Transformer I've ever received.

G1 Micromaster Countdown

What are the odds of me ever finding just a loose Micromaster Countdown?

I already have a complete Countdown with full base and I just love this guy!

And he was only a $1!

Note: This is the 1678th Transformer that Nala has purchased!

G1 Micromaster Combiners Sledge & Hammer and Oiler & Slide

Picked up 3 more Micromasters I needed. The fourth (Slide) is an extra since I already have one but the dealer wouldn't separate them.

Number in Collection: 1622, 1623, 1624, 1625

Ok. You can berate me all you want about it.

Yes. I broke the rule started in early 2005 about buying duplicates of Transformers. Towards the end of Armada and during the Energon line that strange fucked up collector/fan mentality creeped into my logic and I ended up buying duplicates of mass produced figures. Yeah. A lot of them I got on clearance and so forth., some even 70% off retail. But that's not the point.

There's no good reason for a healthy-minded individual to have duplicates of mass-produced Transformers. The "one mint-in-box, one for display" mentality is bullshit and for some reason, I went that way mid-way towards Energon and said "No more from now on!".

But I'm going to make exceptions every now and then and the TF Universe "Constructicons" were one of them. I had never intended to open them since I keep most of my Universe crap in-box for the sanity of storage and display in the Attic.

But I so needed to have an out of the box Bonecrusher because of his inherent spiritual calming capabilities. Yes. A character named Bonecrusher can actually have some good in him where Nala is concerned.

So anyway, I ended up not only buying another set to open, I figured I'd get another set of the other 2-pack as well so I can have all four open!

I am the lame. I know. And if there is an afterlife I'll be judged accordingly by Allah, El, Jesus, Odin, *fill in the blank* for my extreme lameness in this life. (Though rumor has it that if you manage to acquire a Lucky Draw Black Fire Convoy in this life, you get like 100 virgins in the afterlife! Or is it 100 fresh links of kielbasa? Or is it 100 vats of daikon kimchee? I don't remember. Actually I think it is 100 virgins cooking 100 links of kielbasa while making 100 vats of daikon kimchee while listening to Peter Gabriel!)

Numbers in Collection: 1558-1561

G1 Reissue Star Convoy and Micromaster Hot Rod

I ended up going in on an auction with Mr. E. He wanted the reissue Galvatron and I've always wanted a Star Convoy so now I have one.

He's kinda boxy as most later G1 figures were.

But I do like is box art!

And I only paid like $58 for him.

October 22, 2005 - KB Exclusive Trainbots

My oh my what a cracky day here in the Cowlands.

On a tip from Evebird I headed to KB Toyworks and lo and behold the Micromaster Trainbot Combiners were finally released.

This is the first domestic release of the Takara SixTrain mold here in the States and other than the inappopriately named Swindle, used for the left leg component, I can't find fault in these guys.

Yeah. At $3.99/each they are a bit pricey considering it takes 6 of them to merge into Rail Racer but I do likes me some Micromasters.

Since they are an exclusive I bought one to open and one to keep mint-on-card for the future of the collection. Store exclusives are the only time I will be buying duplicates of any retail Transformers. I learned my addiction issues with Energon and Armada and thankfully won't have that problem again. I still have extras to get rid of.

Numbers in Collection: 1439-1450.
