Rinzler and More Transformers!

So, it’s been a while since I showed off some toys…and since someone caught me buying Transformers figures to day and gave me a funny look because I’m twenty-seven…I figured this was a good time to go “YES, I COLLECT TOYS, WORLD, LEAVE ME ALONE” in an immature and blog-worthy fashion. :D As you can tell by the all-caps. I’m very hyper today and you’ll probably notice…

Moving on.


Fear Rinzler

Rinzler. Also known as Tron gone awesome.

Well, don’t get me wrong, Tron was always a pretty rad guy and he always had a set of moves–but let’s face it, in Legacy he took a level in badass.

You may have noticed I have a preference for Rinzler over Tron. *cough* It’s probably the helmet. Or the purring. Or the bad boy thing. Or the fanfiction potential between him and S–

Figure. This is a figure of Rinzler and I found it on sale. Isn’t he just the cutest? :D

(Phew. No one caught my slip. Ha ha ha. And no one will ever know because I’m being so sneaky and…I’m typing out loud aren’t I?)

Hey look! Hexadecimal thinks he’s a stud too! *throws distraction at everyone*


She thinks he's a stud, too. And hey! They could actually get together!

Okay. Enough of that. The rest of these are from TRANSFORMERS.

I got a tiny Starscream. He’s the perfect size ratio to the Skyfire (Jetfire to those who jus tread the toy boxes and didn’t pay attention to the G1 show) figure I already had. Being a huge fan of the uh, Starscream & Skyfire bromance…the following was unavoidable:

Starscream and Skyfire

Don't you like me?

You can’t blame Starscream for wanting his buddy back. Skyfire might be the only person who’s ever really cared about him.

Starscream Gets Closer

Come on~ You know you like me!

And Starscream is stubborn. Skyfire shall cave!

Starscream and Skyfire cuddle


Jet Snuggles have commenced. Transformers is the only fandom where jets can snuggle. *shoves them together and giggles like a five year old who discovered pixy sticks*



Thundercraker: He's Mr. Serious and Thinks Too Much

(Would you believe I found that at Khols of all places?)

Hmm. Another Decepticon good at getting all your attention? Well Soundwave of Course!

Soundwave and Laserbeak

Soundwave and Laserbeak. Insert "Awwwww" here.

His Prime!Version is probably my favorite version of the character. He’s got an amazing amount of personality for a guy who never says anything. And the toy confirms the little thing that pops off his chest is Laserbeak. Something I was never quite sure of, but never bothered to look up officially.


Look! It's Chromia Arcee!

Look! It’s Arcee! And I didn’t have to resort to Ebay to get her! XD I literally walked by the shelf and went “That can’t possibly be what I think it is.” *yoinks toy off rack* “…This is Arcee.” *scours shelf for another one* “YES.”

Now all I need is an Arachnid figure to come out. For…reasons. That won’t involve a camera. *cough*

I still wish they just would have kept her name as Chromia. Because come on. Prime!Arcee is Chromia. She’s even the right color! XD

Battle of the Arcees

Chromia vs Arcee! Because if it was Arcee vs Arcee they'd both be pink.

I’m starting to think I shouldn’t be allowed to have a camera near action figures. Just be happy I’ve never gotten into the photo-comics game. Or else you’d get a storyline that makes this possible:

Arcee x Soundwave

He's such a good listener.

*runs away cackling madly into the night*

Arcee. Rules.

Making Arcee a Toys R’ Us exclusive was the cruelest thing I think Hasbro could have done to the Animated Toy line.

That said – I looked for her in Toys R’ Us. I looked for her quite often. But, I work normal hours which means I could never make it to the store on delivery days. So, thanks to other rabid fans and scalpers – I was out of luck.

And I refused to pay $30+ or more before shipping for a $12 figure.

Well, one day I got lucky. I was browsing Ebay and saw one for $10, I went ‘okay’ and went ahead and bid. I got outbid immediately so curious of the other person’s High Bid – I went all the way up to $21. And then – I find an Arcee for $9.50 that ends in 20 minutes. I went ‘what the hell?” and bid. And ended up winning her for $11. I was freakishly happy and if you follow my Twitter you probably heard me squealing. (Thankfully someone who knows who he is outbid me on the other figure. XD)

She arrived in the mail and I am, very very happy. This is a nice figure and well worth it. They really should have printed more of her because she would have sold out no matter what.

But – I’m going to show you pictures of the other Toys R’ Us Exclusive figure first just to hold out the suspense! :D

Cybertron Mode Ratchet – I actually found him in the store. And he’s a cutie:

Cybertron Mode Ratchet


But none of you care about him (as noted by the fact there’s still another figure of him sitting on the shelf in my local Toys R’ Us…) So here’s Arcee!!

Animated Arcee Poses

She is Hard. Core.

I was not a huge fan of Arcee in G1 – sure I adored her paired up with Springer (OTP!) but she was mostly just there. And that thing with her and Daniel later in the series was just plain creepy. Animated Arcee – now her I liked. She was still meek and modest, but you could tell she was well, useful. Girl was a school teacher! You know she had some brass.

Animated Arcee Poses

She glitters.

And let’s face it – her Animated ReDesign was slick and probably called back to the original G1 design more than most of the cast. This figure just looks good – and it glitters. *_* (See, this is how Glitter is done Edward Cullen! Take some notes!)

Animated Arcee Poses


And best of all – the figure revealed some other fun stuff about her, like the fact her weapon of choice is dual swords. You know she used those on her students. :D

Ratchet and Arcee

Awesome Duo

And much the way Animated drives me crazy with screwing with my OTP’s (G1 Optimus x Elita-One & BW Silverbolt x Blackarachnia somehow morphing into TF:A Optimus x Blackarachnia) – it does it again messing with G1 Arcee x Springer to the above. Ratchet & Arcee in Animated are ridiculously adorable together.

Figures Battle

Blurr is Jealous

And now Blurr is jealous because he’s no longer my favorite TF:A figure. It’s okay, Blurr! Your’e still the second favorite!
