Whew! That’s a lot of TFs! I knew October was gonna be special, when back in this post I said October is off to a great start. 24 TFs for the month. That’s gotta be a new single month record, even for me. 7 figures came out of TF Prime, and the other 17 all belong to Generations. And out of the 17 Generations, 5 are Fall of Cybertron, and the rest GDO. I guess this month more than makes up for the last few months, where I found virtually nothing in the stores.

Out of the 24 figs, 13 are repaints of molds I already have. Still, Hasbro made them different enough for me to want them. They sure know how to keep me interested.

Notice I bought the little legend GDO Thundercracker twice. First came with the Ultimate Gift set from hasbrotoyshop.com, and the second was a standalone purchase at Toys R Us. I guess I could’ve left the the 2nd one on the shelf, but these little guys are rare finds so I couldn’t help myself.

But yeah, so many TFs in such a short span. I’m barely able to process it all. The pic below shows the only figures that I opened so far. And believe me I plan to open them all (except for the 2nd Thundercracker).

I recommend all these figures that I opened. Well, maybe except for Airachnid. Her robot mode is pretty crappy. But the heli mode is cool and she is a rare fig, so there are still some reasons to get one.

Today is also Halloween. So I thought I do a shot of all my orange TFs with a stuff pumpkin that I have. Check it out below.

And speaking of orange, here’s a plug for a totally unrelated topic: San Francisco Giants are world champions! As a sports fan living in the SF Bay Area, it’s something I must mention. Their colors are orange and black, very fitting for Halloween. Coincidentally, the victory parade is also on this day. It will be crazy in the city! I wanted to take a pic of my orange TFs with some Giants memorabilia, but can’t find any. Earlier in the year I went to a Giants game, and I got a Brian Wilson gnome as a stadium give-away. I sold it on eBay for $50, which I’ve come to regret now for 3 reasons: 1) It’s a great piece to take a pic with my orange TFs, 2) Now that Giants are world champs, it’s probably worth way more than $50, and 3) It’s a great memento to keep around for a championship year. Though Brian Wilson has made no contribution to this championship run since he’s been hurt since May, so maybe it’s not a big deal.

Happy Halloween everyone! Transform and Roll Out!

    Dude, nice! But I’m seriously getting annoyed with pre-orders. What’s the point when everyone else is getting them in before me? I pre-ordered the Ultimate Gift set back in summer and still haven’t gotten a notice for it. *sigh*.. Nice pick ups though!

    Hmm that’s weird. I ordered the Ultimate Giftset in the early half of this month, and about a week later they arrived with the FOC Combaticons (though Blastoff was shipped separately and I got him a few days later). I was surprised at how quick I got the GIftset, since it was before the estimated arrival.

    I’m opening the Combaticons next! Really want to combine them, tho I’m told Bruticus is less than stellar.

    Well, I love Bruticus. There are some really good alternate transformations that help his appearance a LOT. Check my site in the next few days seems my G2 Set arrives today!

    Wow you are getting G2 Bruticus already? You must have bought from BBTS. I’m getting mine from Amazon, it wont’ ship til Nov 21st :( Can’t wait to see pics on your blog.

    I’m considering getting this set:
