Adding to my Wheeljack Collection

Photo-A-Day 2.0 #01921

today I had a great day for adding items to my Transformers collection. I had pre-ordered a set of five of the G1 characters because the set included a Wheeljack figure. I was so excited about this because these figures are cartoon accurate in color. This set arrived in the mail today.

After krav class I went off to Target and there I found another Wheeljack figure. That one I had been searching for ever since I missed out on getting it via pre-order from Hasbro Pulse. I’m glad I missed out because today at Target they had Target Circle week and Transformers were 30% off. So, I picked up the Wheeljack figure and also the Blaster and Brawn figures. I did not have the original Brawn figure. It was one of the earlier minicons and I always thought I had that figure but I did not. I also thought I had the original Bumblebee and yet I did not own that one either. So, I’m adding this Brawn figure into my display as well.

The Wheeljack figure is awesome, it actually transforms into Wheeljacks original Cybertonian form. The figure also fits the bumblebee figure that is in Cybertonian form that had been released a couple years ago. I wish I had picked up that figure. Now I cannot find it anywhere. At least not for a fair price.

On the day after my birthday I stopped at the comic book store and picked up the most recent issue of Transformers. This new run of the book is the best I’ve read. When I got there I did not have this particular comic in my pull box, it had a different cover but I had seen this cover and I knew I wanted it. It looks amazing.You have Starscream crushing one of Soundwave’s tapes and yanking out the tape. Kids today would have no idea what that even was not to mention how cool it looks.As an 80’s kid who had a ton of tapes and has had mishaps like that before it was such a cool cover.

The LEGO sets are from my Aunt Cindy and Uncle Wayne. They picked out the most perfect set for me, too. I was going to get that set for myself and even considered getting three of them to do all of them. The camera reminds me of my father’s old pentax camera. The one I learned how to take photos with. I’m looking forward to building this.
