Saturday (last week), Amazon.co.uk, I received Aquarion Complete Collection.
I would have posted about this last week, but I discovered a nasty fault on disc 1 which rendered part of the disc unplayable, so I had to get a replacement sent out to me.
Aquarion was a series I first discovered when someone showed me an image of the Assault Type Aquarion toy (such is the notoriety of being a recognised black repaint fanatic) either slightly before or just after I began to branch out into collecting more than solely Transformers (I forget the exact details, but I do recall buying the toy before watching the series itself).
Wednesday, All The Cool Stuff, I received...
- Reveal the Shield Optimus Prime
- Reveal the Shield Perceptor
- Reveal the Shield Wreck-Gar
- Universe Classics Windrazor
The new Laser Prime mould is a flawed recreation of the original Laser Prime's perfection with kibble hampering its articulation and a stupid orange tab on his right shoulder that also gets in the way.
As for Perceptor, I do like robot mode, but the transformation of his backpack and arms in particular almost had me sling him at the nearest wall (the instructions weren't too helpful)!
Thursday, toy-wholesaler.jp, I received Skull Magnum and DX Lost Driver.
This is my first (and probably only) belt and weapon purchase from Kamen Rider W (a.k.a. Kamen Rider Double), so I went with the option that ultimately represented 3 of its appearing Riders in Skull, Eternal and Joker (I'm currently the process of acquiring a T2 Joker Memory at the time of writing this entry).
The Skull Magnum is a very simplistic gun with limited sounds, but I do love the colouring of this over the Trigger Magnum (like there was any doubt of that).
Then there's the Lost Driver which is basically a Double Driver with half its gimmick removed, and even then it serves little purpose when all the necessary electronics are housed inside the Gaia Memories themselves.
