Combiner Wars Demolishor More New Pictures Of Testshot Retool Head Sculpt

Tformers - 3 October, 2015 - 18:24
Finally tonight, Captured Prey has taken extra photos of the Demolishor-headed testshot of Combiner Wars Onslaught, giving us much better looks at the head sculpt. This copy retains the Bruticus combiner head, though there's no certainty that would be the case for an actual production copy, perhaps still leaving a mystery for this version of the toy.

Combiner Wars Scattershot New Testshot Photos Of Silverbolt Retool

Tformers - 3 October, 2015 - 18:17
Captured Prey's Facebook has been updated with photos of the three Combiner Wars testshots they've recently received. First up from these is Scattorshot, the Silverbolt retool revealed during SDCC to a ...less than warm reception, especially when it was announced the other Technobots were not coming with. In any event, the testshot comes off a fair bit better looking than the sample at SDCC, so click through to have a look at it!

Tformers - 3 October, 2015 - 17:55
This weekend at Roll Out Roll Call, Fun Publications had hand painted versions of next year's subscription figures Bludgeon and Impactor on display, showing them in their planned decos with at least early castings of their new head sculpts. Differences should of course be expected before the final versions. The Club also released a new mockup image of Ramjet, next year's membership incentive figure, explaining that instructions would be provided for the newly devised way of moving the head to accommodate the crest in vehicle mode.

Sell, Trade, Or Keep Bad YJA Wins. (Microman Micronauts)

Gangustars - 3 October, 2015 - 15:54
Here is my problem, I got some duplicate toys in a purchase that don't live up to my expectations. These are toys that didn't really even factor into my purchase as they were included in a lot that had others things I wanted. So some, if not most, would probably say this isn't really a problem at all.
This pic above shows the "leftovers" from the lot I won. And this is the actual size of the auction photos, and the only pic of the contents of these Romandoh Microman 21 sets. I knew I was getting 2 incomplete sets, each missing figures. I didn't think there would be any real issues with the figures that were included. Why should I? The seller didn't state there was a problem with any of the toys. I know I should be more cautious when buying via Yahoo Auctions. YJA doesn't require high resolution pics be used, they don't even require good resolution pics. And many YJA sellers don't use more than 3 pics, even though there's plenty of free image upload sites available, even in Japanese. Then there's the "junk" phenomenon. More on that some other time because it didn't apply to these toys in terms of the auction description. And when it comes to issues with these toys, it's only in regards to 3 out of the 5. The M166 Saram and M151 Evan figures are in great shape.

The trouble children in my winnings are M151 East, M152 Eric and M164 Sammy. The first and most glaring issue was that some parts on each figure had yellowed a bit. East's capsule, and blue body & hips. Eric's waist and shin's show minor yellowing. And while this version of Sammy was always a bit of a yellowed grey, he shows a bit more actual plastic discoloring now.

The joints are also not exactly tight on these figures. Romandoh figures never had the best rubber bands inside either. The figures all show some dirt too, maybe from being displayed in the open. They are however complete with their wings and unbroken. In the end I have 3figurs that has some wear, some discoloring, a bit loose but presentable, and definitely photogenic. I doubt I could get much in trade/sale for these, so I am leaning towards just keeping them for use as props or desktop decoration.

And then there's still this sexy beast...

Getting an extra M166 Saram was a nice bonus. Even though I have a minty Saram tucked away in storage, I can't part with this one. The figure is so damn cool. I don't know if it's been directly stated that this is supposed to be the same Saram that leads the Microman Micro Change robots. But if he is that makes me want to sell him even less.

When shy, artistic Anna moves to the seaside to live with her aunt and uncle, she stumbles upon an old mansion surrounded by marshes, and the mysterious young girl, Marnie, who lives there. The two girls instantly form a unique connection and friendship that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality. As the days go by, a nearly magnetic pull draws Anna back to the Marsh House again and again, and she begins to piece together the truth surrounding her strange new friend. Continued...
