I was waiting in great anticipation over the course of this week for some Transformers I bought to arrive. Since they were posted by EMS, I made it a point to check their status daily using EMS Tracking. It was fun to see where they are and know how soon I might expect them. On 15 July, the status on the EMS system said "Delivered". So I headed home, with great anticipation and a tinge of excitement I might add, full expecting to see a slip of paper in my letter box telling me to collect my parcel from concierge.
They didn't arrive. This was Thursday.
On Friday, I checked again. Still no slip of paper from concierge.
I sneaked a check on Saturday. Still nothing.
This morning, I got a call from concierge through the intercom. The lady at the other end said "you have 2 parcels waiting for you to collect."
"Wow!", that's great news I thought.
Went for lunch and came back to collect the stuff. I broke them out right-away and transformed them with E. These are what arrived today:
- C-347: Sonic Bomber MIB;
- C-349: Road Fire MIB;
- C-303: Minerva (stickers unapplied);
- Construction Patrol; and
- Race Track Patrol.
I like the Race Track Patrol. It is one of the crazier but to me, quite special patrols. I can't put my finger on why, but its a great set of figures. I was completely blown away by Sonic Bomber and Road Fire. To be honest, I never expected them to be such nice figures and also never expected them to come with motorised action as well. They are the very standard G1-type 'brick' figure with very limited articulation and that's just the way I like it. Very nicely sized and very classic G1-esque design for a line that was at the very tail end of G1 and so much better than the US and Europe releases of the same year. I have them right next to me as I'm writing this. heh.
Here are some preliminary pictures, more to follow obviously.
