Kabaya Classics Starscream TakaraTomy

It's a maze!

Yum, now I have a little puzzle to put together!!  Thanks Smooth!

Took me about 10 minutes and an x-acto blade, but here he is in all his miniature glory.  The thing transforms but requires dis-assembly.  Booooo!

Metroplex takes a walk – causes 8.9 Earthquake in Japan

Woke up today to hear that a giant earthquake hit off the coast of Japan and has caused a disasterous tsunami that is currently sweeping the Japanese coast.  The footage from this is remarkable, but the results will be horrible.  Our good friend and fellow collector Professor Smooth is safe and sound, but has relayed a few important facts since the disaster began.

Japan is in a permanent state of earthquake readiness. That’s why (so far) the death toll is at 32, rather than 100,000 plus (the Haiti and Indonesia quakes were smaller than Japan’s).

Smooth also says this is being reported as the fifth most powerful quake to ever be recorded in modern history.  WOW!  To think I’ve gone through most of my life without hearing or having any idea what kind of destruction a wave could have, now it seems almost common place.  At least now the United States can quit satiating Charlie Sheen and care about something beyond themselves for a few days.

Didn't Prime tell you to stop doing jumping jacks while on Earth!??!?!

I recently got in touch with Smooth and apparently things are getting worse every minute:

It’s unbelievable. I can’t overstate how insane this is. There are oil refineries that that are just acres of fire. A miles-wide wave of cars and buildings and fire and death has obliterated at least one town. Tens of thousands of people are stranded in Tokyo.

So for now, we must pray, wait, and hope…


Amazon.co.jp has a sale – Mountains of TakaraTomy Animated

TakaraTomy Animated Transformer toys on sale

While Chicago is in a whiteout, Japan is in a definite BLACK OUT!

Circle the globe and you will be in a little old place called Japan. Apparently, it’s time to clean house at their Amazon website and almost every Transformer toy across the board was drastically reduced. Can you say TakaraTomy Animated Leaders (regularly $80 + shipping) for $22? Ummm yes please! This photo is not of all my toys but it is a sight to behold. I have a few choice items in this bundle, but even with the shipping, I will be making out like a bandit. Come to me Shiny Black Soundblaster!!!
