Walked home. Went to the post office to pick up parcel #5 in 2 days!
This was loot from Specimen-17, basically parts and odd and ends that I needed.
Canadian Bluestreak box - yet another for my Bluestreak collection!
Vintage TF notebook featuring Bluestreak in front
GiG G2 Sideswipe with package, complete
Scoop complete (finally)
04 x Thrust launchers
01 x Thrust short missile
Above, he is pictured with the Japanese version of his G1 counterpart, D-50: Motormaster, a rare piece in itself.
I just got back home with this piece. What makes it extra special is that I picked it up together with 3 other local TF buddies, whom I have gotten to know recently (we already have a What's App group and talk daily!). It was great to pick this up together, go for some food and a drink and to meet them for the first time.
No, I didn't buy 2. One box is for an old friend in Singapore.
Ermmm, I still blame James Roberts, the omnimalevolent writer of IDW's More Than Meets the Eye series. Why you might ask? Because he single-handedly made me want and focus on certain TFs that I otherwise only have a passing or moderate interest in is why. In other words, I start to buy more, on the basis of the stories he writes.
An example? I recently went and bought a Japanese boxed C-104: Brainstorm while I was in Japan when I already had a very minty USA boxed one.
