The Want List (21/7/18)

Here's where I shall keep a track of TransFormers toys and Third Party bits and bobs that I'm interested in laying my hands on... Just a simple list, but hopefully it'll document a few cool purchases... I also keep an Amazon wish list featuring some of these items but, while I know this sort of thing happens for some bloggers (and particularly YouTubers), in all good conscience, I neither expect nor suggest anyone buy these for me (other than, perhaps, close friends and family, for birthday or Christmas presents). It's just another means of tracking the figures and their availability.

Official Hasbro TransFormers:
Generations/Titans Return Overboard Bought (for use with the Nottingham Robot Co Overlord upgrade)
Generations/Titans Return Apeface Bought (for use with the Nottingham Robot Co Overlord upgrade)
Generations/Power of the Primes Dreadwind Bought (as above, though I've seen cheaper than their £21, but both together evens things out a bit)
Generations/Power of the Primes Evolution Rodimus Prime Bought (wasn't going to bother, but The Entertainer was selling it about £10 cheaper than most other places, before they'd even put it on the shelves!)
Generations/Power of the Primes Blackwing Bought at MCM London Comic Con
Generations/Power of the Primes Moonracer Bought at MCM London Comic Con (despite the horrific backpack)
Generations/Power of the Primes Nemesis Prime Preordered via Amazon (the new head for the Orion Pax analogue looks great, while the extra weapons - including an Arms Micron - seal the deal... but was there really every any doubt I'd get this?)
Generations/Power of the Primes Novastar (despite being just a repaint of the above)
Generations/Power of the Primes Punch/Counterpunch (Hasbro have clearly learned some lessons following the versions of this character released by the former Collectors' Club!)
Generations/War for Cybertron Chromia (maybe... not convinced of the retooling, but it's a Femme-Bot, innit?)

Cyberverse Windblade (Warrior class actually looks pretty decent)
Cyberverse Shadow Striker (if there's a decent, Warrior class version of her)

Robots In Disguise (2015) Deluxe Thermidor Bought (because Bisk is rather cool in hand)

Cybertron Longrack
Energon Dreadwing
Armada Overload (because picking up a second-hand Jetfire made we want to build the super-supermode of Optimus Prime combined with both!)

Beast Wars Metals/Transmetals 2 Blackarachnia Bought (since it was there, at Orbital Comics)
Beast Wars Metals/Transmetals 2 Tigerhawk
Beast Wars Metals/Transmetals 2 Megatron
Beast Wars Neo Big Convoy (maybe)

Offical Takara Tomy Figures:
TransFormers Adventure Strongarm Bought (because the other version I picked up wasn't quite 'right')

TransFormers Adventure Ground Vehicon General Bought (just because!)
TransFormers Adventure 'Joint Struggle' Sideswipe & Stepper Bought (mainly because Jazz was cool and the Hasbro Sideswipe is crummy)

Street Fighter II x TransFormers Convoy [Ryu] vs Megatron [Vega] & Hot Rod [Ken] vs Arcee [Chun Li] Bought (silly, I know, but actually rather cool-looking)

TransFormers Generations Senator Ratbat

Masterpiece Ratbat (maybe... Not 100% convinced by Badbat now I have it...)

TransFormers Live Action Movie Figures:
Masterpiece MPM-5 Barricade Bought (not madly keen on owning yet another Bumblebee or Optimus Prime, but this thing looks great)
Studio Series Bumblebee Bought (hopefully the last Bumblebee figure I ever want to buy... Except perhaps those based on the VW Beetle from Bumblebee's standalone movie)
Studio Series Blackout Bought (...mere moments after receiving an email notification from the Nottingham Robot Co.)
Studio Series Lockdown Bought (Hasbro's rebuttal to Unique Toys' Peru Kill has come a little late, but actually looks pretty good)
Studio Series VW Bumblebee
Studio Series KSI Sentry
Studio Series Shadow Raider (maybe - seems like an expensive way of getting a 'masked' head for Lockdown, but hey...)
Studio Series Dropkick (I'm OK with the helicopter version, but the car version would be my preference, assuming they make both)
Studio Series Shatter (not yet announced, but sure to come along eventually. Will have to wait and see about the jet version, but I'd certainly be keen on a car version)
Studio Series 'Blitzing'/'Blitzwing' (not sure that name's right/final, and a toy hasn't been announced yet, but fingers crossed...)
Masterpiece MPM-6 Ironhide (maybe - it's not flawless, but certainly looks to be the best version of the character so far) or...
Studio Series Ironhide (not sure about this one - looks OK, and certainly far cheaper than the Masterpiece version, since I'm not that invested in movie Ironhide as a character)
Bumblebee/Power Charge Bumblebee (actually looks surprisingly decent for a figure lumbered with a gimmick)

Misc Exclusives/Special Releases:
OTFCC BotCon Europe 2002 Rook Bought (as a pair with Glyph)
Studio Series Thundercracker Bought (took a chance and ordered on eBay, since there was no guarantee it'll appear in the UK in the wake of Toys'R'Us going belly-up... but, of course, it's not that hard to find after all...)
TFCC BotCon 2009 Scourge
TransFormers Cloud Hellwarp
TransFormers Cloud Starscream (maybe)

'Holy Grail' Figures:
Galaxy Force Chromia White Version/Minerva Type DVD set Bought!!! (minus the packaging and DVD, but not too fussed as I've not seen it available for years...)
TFCC BotCon 2006 Darksyde Megatron (appeared on eBay during late 2016 for the frankly insane price of $1,300, eventually sold for a just as loony $1,000. Also seen for €1,100 Euros, which is still nuts)
Encore/G1 Sky Lynx (because CW Sky Lynx just isn't quite right, and I like motorized features!)
Beast Wars Ikard & Tako Tank (actually not that difficult to find for a reasonable cost, I just don't have room for it right now...)

Third Party Transforming Robot Figures:
Iron Factory IF-EX16N Night Assassin Bought
Iron Factory IF-EX16A Alleria Bought (2nd time lucky)
Alien Attack STF-01 Firage Bought (looks absolutely phenomenal, considering its reported size)
FansToys FT-24 Rouge Bought (vehicle mode looks a bit odd... but easily the best-looking Third Party G1 Arcee right now)
Black Mamba Aries Nitrogen Bought (TLK Nitro upscaled and with an improved paint job? Don't mind if I do!)
Iron Factory IF-EX27 Shrikes Feather Preordered (I'd rather not get into my Seeker OCD, so I'm skipping the main three and going straight for the Femme-Bot)
DX9/Unique Toys K3 La Hire (having read some truly scary things about TFEVO's Hot Fire, I've decided to go for the other Third Party Hot Rod instead - if Unique Toys' Peru Kill is anything to go by, La Hire is likely to be much sturdier)
Mastermind Creations R-09 Eupatorium (if the price is right...)
This 3D Printed Thing of Beauty. I can only hope it gets mass produced at some point!
WeiJiang 'Robot Force' M02 customised Hound (because the KuBianBao version was actually a bit disappointing)

Third Party Accessories:
Perfect Effect PC-15 and PC-16 upgrade kits for TF Legends Super Ginrai Bought
Dr Wu DW-M08 Judgement weapons for TLK Optimus Prime Bought (on a whim)
Transform Dream Wave TCW-01 Bruticus upgrade set Bought (because the Perfect Effect one was a bit underwhelming in comparison)
Beezleboss BLZ-06 Iron Lady weapons set Bought
DNA Design's DK-06 upgrade set for Studio Series Grimlock
Fans Want It Alien Jet Engine Kit
FansProject TFX-ABT-01 Gas Tank Upgrade Kit
