I like action figures and take pictures of them, sometimes offering commentary. I also reblog odds and ends that may seem jumbled. This is all a reflection of who I am.

Orion-Neos said he was always a big fan of Bossk, me too! I’m always happy to have a reason to photograph Bossk. One of my favorite figures!

Hey! I’m Internet famous! I’m not sure what that entails, but thanks for the Bossk photo!

Gozan’s Walker & Spider Crawler
| Legends of Chima | Lego | 2014 |

These two Lego sets were picked up at a Canadian Toys R Us, which had better prices than their US counterparts on most of the products I looked at. I enjoy the polybag sets, but they can be a pain to track down, often exclusive to one store for a limited amount of time. So, when I see ones I like I’ll pick them up on the spot in most cases.

Gorzan’s Walker has a neat design with ball-socket hips and weapons the pivot and rotate. He’s pretty exposed, but I suppose a gorilla based minifigure can take a couple hits. The Spider Walker is an equally pilot-exposed transport. The legs all pivot and there are two exhausts in the back, which I imagine Sparratus uses like a nitrous to flee.

Stinger
| Transformers: Age of Extinction |
| Hasbro | 2014 |

I found Stinger at a Walmart in Canada, where I discovered my employee discount crosses borders. Despite being a Walmart exclusive in the US, the Canadian release doesn’t indicate anything of the sort. This is the same country I found many toys exclusive to Toys R Us in the states stocked at Target, so ‘tis a magical land to be sure.

Stinger shares his mold with Knockout from the Transformers Prime Cyberverse line with paint application to (sort of) match Bumblebee’s nemesis from Age of extinction. I think the mold suits Stinger well even if it’s not at all accurate. Besides, it’s looking less and less likely we’ll get anything other than Cyberverse-scale Stinger toys for the main line. This same toy is also available in a three-pack with a Cyberverse Bumblebee and a deluxe Strafe, who appears to be unchanged from his regular and Toys R Us releases.

I took a picture of Walmart Strafe, whom I am retconning into Beast Wars Terrorsaur because I don’t have the original, and messed around with filters. These are the results with the original included, top left. Also came up with a story idea for him that I will probably not go anywhere with. It ignores his demise in season two of Beast Wars, mainly because he was one of my favorite characters from the series:

Donning a new color scheme, Terrorsaur returns to an Earth where the only other Transformers are in stasis and trapped under a mountain. With no one to command him and stable Energon across the planet, he is finally happy, at peace. But, will it last?
Home at last. Stopped by a Walmart about 1/3 of the way home and they had their exclusive Transformers packs out. I just picked up these two, mainly for the Beast Wars molds used for the Dinobots.

I’ve been in Canada for the past couple days, the Surrey/Vancouver area of British Columbia, so if anyone was wondering why the lack of posts that’s why. I don’t have a data plan for my iPhone, so I’ve had to rely on spotty, free wifi. As the pictures above suggest, I picked up a few things during my stay. I’ll go into them more later. Can’t wait to get home tomorrow.

I’ve done this before, and it got a pretty good response, SO. Anybody who reblogs this will get their own action figure photo.

Meaning, I will write your username down and incorporate it in the photo with different figures. Feel free to reblog with a certain character you’d like in your photo…

Bossk has always been a favorite of mine.

What are those
Those are doughnut holes. One of the best things to come out of Canada.
