Transformers Takara Armada MC-06 Optimus Prime

One of the few Armadas I had. Had, means I sold this. Sold it last year because I had the full version with trailer. I got this from Singapore. This is the deluxe version of Optimus Prime Armada series.

Dragonball Z Super Battle Collection No. 18 Gotenks Bandai

The normal version of Gotenks. Gotenks are transformation of Go Ten (son of Son Goku) and Trunks (son of Vegeta). Made by Bandai, I got this from a warehouse sale few years ago.

I loved this character in manga particularly against evil Majinbu. A different of variety of combo moves with Picollo.

There are newer version of this issued by Bandai. More articulations.

Transformers Energon Wing Saber Hasbro

Another Powerlinx character. Wing Saber.

There isn't much to talk to about this guy. Another Energon character that price went up after the Transformers the movie came out. One of the harder character to get in the series. Capable to powerlink with most of the other Autobots.

Sold this piece 2 years ago, clearing my Energon series.

Transformers TF-05 Six Train Zone Series

Takara TF-05 Micromaster Six Train. Little I knew about this lot. I had this from ebay a few years ago.

I sold it at the end of the day. I only had this micromaster combiner alone, so I felt weird and I sold it off. Too bad the prices for this shot up so high lately.

Transformers Energon Grimlock & Swoop

I never really seen this in the series as I didn't really finish the series anyways. The deal is sometimes when you relate to Grimlock and Swoop, the toy will be a HOT item. This twin pack was fast sold out in the market. If lucky enough, toy shops might had it in a slightly higher price.

I had this for a while before I sold it last year. I prefer the vintage Dinobots than this.

Coke Coca-Cola Metal Signs

Coke Metal Signs to me are quite memorable than cans. Unlike cans, metal signs are only available to Coke Stores so getting one is uneasy.

Plain Coca Cola Metal Sign...Vintage "Old-School" Coke Bottle Metal Sign, I prefer this one. Mainly because my interest in old items.

Gifts from my brother in US, bought from Coke Shop in US.

Coke NYC Times Square Post Card

A lovely Coke Edition NYC Times Square Post Card. Picture is partially chromed. A gift from my brother from US.

Transformers 2: Fallen and Devastator Revealed?

Got these picture from the Web, apparently from

Do u believe they are real? Devastator looks menacing and cool to me.

Transformers Energon / Super Link Takara Grand Convoy SC-01

Takara's Energon SC-01 Grand Convoy. 1 of the most hideous Optimus Prime ever made.
The Energon series came after Armada series which I missed it. I would say this is the weakest Prime we've seen in time. Sold this piece last year, I got an extra Hasbro piece.

Transformers Classic Twin Pack Jetfire Grimlock Hasbro

Jetfire and Grimlock was released individually at first. However, later on, they were released together in a Twin Pack exclusive at a slightly lower price.

The box itself is already a beauty.

Back of the box
The front panels can be open to reveal the 2 robot mode of Jetfire and Grimlock.

The bad part is Tomy Takara Henkei has started to re-release the classic and universe series with additional chrome parts. Henkei series looks more promising.

I'm selling it off, I'll keep the Tomy Takara Henkei version.

Transformers Universe Aerialbots Superion Hasbro

Hasbro re-issued Micromaster Aerialbot's Superion under Transformers Universe line a few years ago.
Earlier than this, they released Defensor as well. Nothing much to talk about this. To think about it, the price for the full set is a bit pricy for the size of the toy.

Sold this last year.

Transformers Alternators WindCharger Hasbro

Transformers Alternators no. 10, WindCharger (Honda S2000). Surprisingly I got this at a very good price. It was a few years back. Alternators were not that popular at the moment, I would say it was Binaltech era. However, when collectors found out about paint chips caused by Binaltech's die cast, Alternators price sky rocketed.

Sold this piece last year, clearing for space.

Transformers Galaxy Force Flame Convoy (Scourge) Takara

Takara's Flame Convoy or Scourge by Hasbro. A triple changer from robot mode to single head or triple head flaming dragon. It is first issued by Takara before the series made to US. Later on a whole line of Cybertron from Hasbro issued based on Galaxy Force. After the released of Hasbro, Takara version became more popular and pricy too. Recently, it is reissued again under Transformers Universe's Bruticus. A blue version was made under Hasbro named Cyro-Scourge.

Tranformers Alternators Swindle (Box Type) Hasbro

There's 2 Swindles in the Transformers Alternators Line. This is the earlier version. There will be another "bowl" box version released as well. Swindle is actually a repaint of Hound version. However, both this 2 characters are extremely unpopular among Transformers collectors. Most likely because of its Jeep mode.

I sold this last year, clearing off all my Alternators line.

Transformers Binaltech Asterisk 01 Alert with AI + 02 Sunstreaker with Junko

Transformers Binaltech Asterisk 01 Alert with AI + 02 Sunstreaker with Junko. It's suppose to have a set of 3. However I managed to purchase 2 of them. Due to the success of the binaltech series, Takara experimented with a new line called Asterisk with 3 figures. Asterisk line came with a small girl PVC figure. Takara seeing the success of Binaltech was trying to tap to a different market. The results? It was a big flop. The whole idea was dropped and instead Kiss line was created after that.

I sold 2 of them after I decided to clear all my Alternators and Binaltech series.

Hasbro Star Wars SDCC Obi Wan and Yoda

Released in 2007. Star Wars Coin Edition SDCC Obi Wan and Yoda! The figure is to remembrance the "original" Obi Wan and Yoda. May The Force Be With You.

GI Joe 25th Anniversary Doc MISB

I'm not a big fan of GI Joe but just post this since I had this one with me.

25th Anniversary DOC, I'm not so familiar with this but I was told this is a limited piece. Not sure about this either.

Transformers Cybertron Optimus Prime MISB

This is another reissue by Hasbro by adding a Cybertron Key to the character. Cybertron Optimus Prime is issued during the Galaxy Force, / Cybertron era. This is an extension line of Cybertron and Hasbro had been making a "few" extra characters to sell under this line before the Transformers the movie.
