Transformers Purchased in August 2012

September 1st, 2012

August has been kind of a eventful month for me. But not as far as TF shopping goes. In fact, I only bought 2 TFs this month, and it’s not from lack of hunting. Anyway, they appear below.

  • TF Animated Wingblade Optimus Prime, eBay, $42.74 shipped

  • TF Prime Cyberverse Ultra Magnus, Walmart, $9.96

There’s just a total lack of TFs in stores at the moment. Wingblade OP is a eBay purchase. And Ultra Magnus is a Cyberverse fig, which I usually don’t buy. I could’ve very well not bought any TFs this month. Scary!

Anyway, I bought Wingblade OP because I love the wing attachment. Even though I already have two Hasbro figures of this mold, I still felt justified in spending the $$$ for the wings. Plus this Optimus is in clear red plastic. In my opinion, this is one of the best molds in the Animated line. When this fig first came out, he was well into the $50s. In the low $40s, I didn’t even blink and just got one. TF Source had this on sale this month for $47. I almost bought OP there, but thought I check eBay just in case. Sure enough, some seller in Malaysia had it even cheaper. I wonder if a lost shipment of TFA Wingblade OP just suddenly turned up somewhere if they all got so cheap so quickly.

As for Ultra Magnus, I got him simply because he’s Ultra Magnus. I think Cyberverse is a fun distraction, but nothing I get too excited for. Still, I love the character, and this figure turned out to be a winner. He’s simple like all Cyberverse, but I have fun transforming Magnus back and forth. All 4 limb joints are kinda loose, but nothing a little clear nail polish won’t fix. The hammer weapon is cool too.

Even though that’s only 2 figures for the month, August does come with the release of Fall of Cybertron, which must be mentioned.

I’ve had the game for several days now, but had no chance to play it at all. I recently bought a new home, and anyone that has purchased property in the past will tell you that it’s no trivial matter. There’s a lot of crap that comes with the transaction. It hasn’t left me with much time, so playing FOC and making posts on this blog has kinda fallen by the wayside. But I should be done with it all soon, and I’ll be back in Prime form for even more TFs in no time.

I gotta do better than 2 TFs in Sept. I’m expecting a huge order from TF Source. Hopefully the Giant green set doesn’t get delayed again. Transform and Roll Out!

    Ah Fall of Cybertron, good game but be prepared for headaches from the amount of awesome it has in it!

    You’ll love Fall of Cybertron, just remember to blink.

    Wingblade Prime looks nice, wasn’t he one of the last few Prime things released? I remember he was supposed to get a Hasbro Voyager Class figure but that never happened[I think]

      I finally had some down time yesterday and tried it. FOC IS AWESOME! Can’t wait to play more. My PSN account is HsunamiPrime, if you want to play online 🙂

      Wingblade OP probably was one of the last Animated figs released in Japan. He never got a US release, which is a shame. Some fans get this fig just for the wing attachment and put them on the US version of the fig. I might try that myself…

        I only have Xbox 360 so no PSN……sucks.

        Seems like in the end Animated Figures got shafted, like every other transformer figure line lately. They announce some good figures then at the end they cancel em or they never get released in large quantities.

    Wingblade Op and BB were supposed to see US release. Too bad that didn’t happen. Another lost opportunity for Hasbro I think. That game is tons of fun. I’ll be back to gaming as soon as I finish putting down paint on hegemon/megs.

      Yeah dude Hasbro is always sticking it to us. I’m lovin’ FOC. It is harder than WFC like you said, I’m still only on lvl 3 🙁

    Well congrats on the new house HP! Keep your eyes peeled for me online with FOC. Ultra Magnus looks awesome, I’m looking forward the FOC release of him too, next year!

      Thx aptkane! I’ll look for you online, though right now I’m still trying to go thru the campaign, in what little gaming time I have. I wish more TFs would come out already. Nothing in the stores right now.

        Ugh, I know, there is NOTHING in the stores at all! I’m just hoping one of these days I’ll see the FOC Combaticons on the shelves!
