I first got back into collecting Transformers back in 2000 and my collection has grown from 8 to now hundreds of Transformers. They span many lines: G1, G2, Machine Wars, Beast era, RID, Armada and others. But today I have added my 2nd all time favorite Transformer to my collection, a transformer that I have been wanting for many years and holds a special place in my heart.

Please allow me to introduce you to: OMEGA SUPREME!!

Last week I picked up both TRU MP Optimus and MP-12 Sideswipe. Both are pretty great figures.

This is what I've gotten in the last week or so

Maketoys Giant--great figure in my opinion a near perfect classics Devestator, the only thing that keeps it from it is that it isn't official. 10/10

Matty Collector Voltron yellow, green, blue, and black lions with their respective pilots. Already had the red with Lance. Voltron is massive and a little top heavy. The auto transforming gimmic keeps it from being perfect though. 9/10

Both Iron Army two packs. Made a mediocre POC figure fairly cool, but the 80 dollar price tag is a little excessive, the figures themselves are rather simple looking scout sized figures. 7/10

Fall of Cybertron Bruticus. Just not a fan of this mold. I'm fine with having just the one. 7/10

Fall of Cybertron Prime, Shockwave, and Jazz. First two are both nice looking figures, just on the small side. Jazz is meh, his classics version is so much better.

Prime Dreadwing, Knockout, Prime and FE Cliffjumper. Dreadwing, Knockout, and Cliffjumper are all great figures, outside of that stupid lightup weapon that Dreadwing has. 9/10, Prime though has to much kibble on his back for my taste.

MP-12 Sideswipe. Very nice figure, worried about the size and really dislike the plastic tires. Does look great in both modes. 8/10

MP Sunstorm---I'm a sucker for jets especially ones that have something of a knockoff flair. Have no use for the crown stuff, and rather it didn't come with it just to reduce the price. 9/10

The Ultimate gift set with G2 Jazz and Combat Hero Prime. Didn't open this, left it sealed since I have a version of those molds already. Both are favorites of mine and look nice in the box. 9/10

Black Animated Rodimus--Nice mold and the price was right. More of a impluse buy for me.

ToysRus Hotspot--Have a few of this mold already so I left it in the box. Nice bright blue with the new head. Was very tempting to crack it open.

5 blind packed Kreo figures not sure I really like the transforming gimmic these have, rather they just made the figures like the first group.

Opened up MP-12, is it worth $80+ ?
I hope those that are waiting for a Hasbro version will get a Hasbro version. I'll definitely get another if Hasbro release a version of MP Sideswipe.

I was worried about the size. While its a nice figure I doubt that I pay close to 90 dollars for another version of that mold. To me its closer to a 50-60 dollar figure mainly because of its size and lack of rubber tires.

I think $40 would be a fair price if he gets released by Hasbro...

Ok that makes more sense. The real issue is the conversion rate from yen to dollar right now.

I've picked up FE Starscream and Voyager Dreadwing from TRU over the past couple weeks. I just love this SS mold. I already had it as Skywarp, and it hasn't gotten old yet. I'd be after the exclusive Thundercracker release if it were a little more affordable. Dreadwing is cool, but feels a little cheap in hand. Looks pretty on the shelf though. Dread-ful MechTech weapon. Mine will use the sword exclusively. Oh, and he has 2 right feet. The difference between the feet is so subtle that I wonder why they made them different molds at all. Was just asking for a mixup, it seems.

Also, I saw a decapitated Weaponizer Bumblebee on the shelves at walmart. Just thought you guys would like to know. The head was nowhere to be found, either. Looks like someone plucked it out through the "try me" hole in the front of the package. Funny.

It's fairly common. I've fixed a couple like that, as the head was just loose in the box in those cases.

Got voyager Ultra Magnus and Thundertron from Amazon. Both good figures, although I rate Thundertron a little higher.
