I’ve been a good boy. I’ve been saving my money, mostly for the National Expo this month. I did not go to the Official Transformers Convention this past weekend. It’s been a long time since I’ve splurged on a major purchase like this. I just couldn’t take it any more. I needed to buy some new Transformers. I set out early this morning with that goal in mind, and I have succeeded in coming home with no less than five new entires to the collection.

New Toys!


Brand spankin’ new, still have yet to be sighted in the US, are Sharkticon and Energon Hot Shot. Sharkticon is a cool shark-like battleship who will probably not be appearing on the Energon TV show. I already have the first release of Hot Shot but the colours on this new version look pretty cool, and the artwork on the card is awesome. I also bought Rodimus, just because I hadn’t picked him up yet. Then there’s the two Mega-sized toys, Shockblast and Mirage. Shockblast is a new Decepticon who looks a lot like the G1 character Shockwave, and Mirage is the upgraded form for Tidal Wave. These two guys have been very hard to find in the US and this is the first I’ve seen of them.

I probably should not have spent that much money all at once, but it feels good to carry home a big bag full of new stuff that I’m sure to enjoy instead of something small and expensive.

Despite this new toy influx, I’m still way behind on buying all the stuff I want. Granted, the stuff that I want is everything, but still. I don’t have the Energon Optimus Prime, Jetfire, Ironhide, Starscream, Prowl, Demolishor, Snow Cat, Scorponok…. and the list goes on. To say nothing of Megatron, who, as far as I know, has yet to even appear in Canada. Watching the Japanese episodes of Super Link with subtitles has made me want all of these toys even more.

Damn, I need some money. Somebody pay me and I’ll draw you a pretty picture of something. Ok? Ok!
