Sightings thread - Palmerston North

Postby mr_sooty » Sat Sep 25, 2004 5:28 pm

Went up there for a wedding and popped into Toyworld and Kmart. Pretty standard stuff, new deluxe case at Kmart, Sharky, Slug's etc.

I know this is 'against the rules :roll: ', given that it's not a 'new' figure, but the most interesting thing I saw at Toyworld was an Armada Optimus Prime... the big one ("Superpants Prime"). Original colouring too, not the Unicron battles one. Haven't seen one of these for a while. Hardly surprising they haven't sold it, they're still asking $129.95!

That'd be the Galaxy Defender Armada Megatron knockoff. It's oversized and quite extensively retooled, a rather nice figure and a bargain for $20. Don't knock it 'til you own it. :wink:

Thanks for the heads up. Does that mean that the other More dodgy looking robot things (hideously painted chrome) are also fairly reasonable? They look just plain nasty

That train guy is a knockoff of Might Gaine from Brave Express Might Gaine. The silly chrome mask actually comes off, it's covering up his smaller, cooler head. I have the actual toy, it's great.

The giant space shuttle is a knockoff of Granbird from Brave of the sun Fighbird. Huge, cool toy, but not really worth getting if you don't have Fighbird, as he's made to combine with him [but requires some modification to actually do it, heheh].

The only other one I've seen is a weird blue thing made from lots of vehicles. Not sure what it's knocked off from, but it isn't a TF or a Brave. Has a cool sword all the same.

Just asking for the mo, but I might be keen if it's cheap enough.

Farmers here had a few SW TF millenium Falcons, and the usual stash of standard cybertron stuff.

Still no Bloody sign of Primus tho'... kinda beneficial as Im a lil short on ready funds at the moment. :)
