This week in Poundland, I found 2/3 scale multi-coloured Constructicon 3-packs with no accessories bar the occasional gun. Also a 3-pack of Legends of Cybertron Jetfire (I think), Scourge and a dinky version of pteranodon-chappie. Also also jumbo versions of LoC Optimus Prime and Soundwave.
"I used to think it was a terrible thing that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'what if life were fair, and all of the terrible things that happen to us came because we really deserved them?' Now I take great comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe." — Marcus Cole, Babylon 5 — A Late Delivery from Avalon
Restock of Legends today. Also KO Dreadwind and Darkwing. Really crappy affairs its the one with the legs just sticking out the back. I first saw them 11 years ago though they were oversized. Darkwing comes with a powermaster. Its legs dont move. Dreadwind doesn't get one. Odd.
Some fine tat in Poundland Clydebank on Sunday. First up we had generic transforming robots BUT they were in packaging identical to Transformer Classics basic packs except that they were called 'The Changeable Robot'. Ooooo.
Next up were the 'Earth Armed Escort: Superduty Hero' toys, oversized knock-offs of Cybertron legends toys. Groovy.
Last but not least was the Dreadwind knock-off, or the 'Air Craft Transformable' if you prefer (in a logo strangely similar in typeface to the TF BM logo). Of interest was an 'also in the range' picture of what looked like a Galaxy Shuttle knock-off. Haruuuuuuuuuuummmmmmm.
Woah! I didnt realise that the colours were all mixed colours my store had all the same sets. Really the two pack figures though not real transformers are quite good. I also love the expression on Hotshots face.
Will need to check the local pound shops around me, as I need a replacement Mixmaster knock off, as the cab on my hong kong knock off version broke far to easilywhile dismantling it. Doubtful I will find one, as Kilmarnock Poundland never has any knock off, or any kind of transforming robots when I go in.
Good bye dancing Jazz. May you continue to dance for ever some where else.
