Theme : Leader for the Ages - Autobot
Brand : Hasbro
Make : China
Year : 2007
Box Size : 30cm x 20 cm (LXH)
Transformers : 14cm

This is my favourite Transformer collection because it features a remake of 1984 optimus prime.
Great contrast can be seen between these two.
Getting a hold of this set was tough for me.
When I first saw it a Takashimaya Shopping toy department, I was pondering...buy or don't buy!!!
Because I've brought a lot of Transformers after watching the movie within one week.
My budget was burst!
Then I decided to NOT buy.
Went home...
But can't help thinking about it because it has an old 1984 optimus prime!
So, I told myself... Buy it and make it the last one!
Meaning not getting anymore Transformers at least for the next few months!
When I went back, it was SOLD!!!Too late.
Left with no choice, I searched the web in Singapore.
There was one person selling it but as stated by the seller, the box was slighly damaged.
I didn't want a damaged box...
For the next couple of days, I went in search for Optimus Prime.
I think I visited all the toy stores in Singapore.
No one has it.
I even wrote & sent a picture of the item to "Toys R Us" head office to check on this item
"No" was the reply, they didn't have this.
Hope of finding this seems faint. I gave up!
But two months later...
Guess what!!!
I found it at Toys R Us store!
There were many boxes, maybe 50 or so.
Happily, I got Optimus Prime back HOME! Yippes...

Box Size : 18cm x 30 cm (LXH)
Transformers : 14cm

Big Daddy

Bumblebee
Theme : Deluxe Class - Autobot
Year : 2007

There seems to be many different versions of Bumblebee in this series.
Not sure how many but I did saw one with weapons packed inside.
Buying this was like trading in stock market.
The usual price was S$26.90, selling at all departmental stores.
All was sold out.
Transformers were selling like hot cakes here in Singapore after the movie launched.
(Well, it got me crazy too!)
Finally, I found a shop that said they still have it at their warehouse.
I would be able to get it the next day.
The sales told me it was S$29.90.
Well, a three dollars increased was fine since I'm not able to get it anywhere else at the moment.
I told them to reserve one for me and I'll get it the next day.
The next morning, my phone rang.
The sales said their boss changed the price to S$32.90 and asked if I still want it.
Well, what can I say...
Told them to keep for me and I'll go get it in the afternoon.
It's not over yet!
When I reached the shop.
The price shoot to S$36.90.
I think stock market shares also don't change so fast!!!
Quite annoyed with them but at least the sales did keep it for me.
Deal closed! (Finally...)
One week later, the price shoot up to S$60 which I think it's crazy.
Many toy stores quoted this price.
The thing that pissed me off is that many kept quite a number of this Bumblebee in their stores.
They must have brought all and left the department stores empty.
Collectors would have to fork out more money than the item is really worth.
What madness!!!

Transformers toy scene in Singapore, August 2008 :
Recently, many of these Transformers collectibles prices has fallen to even less than 50% of the original price.
There are sales in most of the departmental stores.
Imagine my heartache when I saw a the Limited Edition Optimus Prime I paid for S$59.90 is now selling at only S$20.00.
I even saw a Deluxe Class - Bumblebee on sale for S$16.90!!!
Other smaller tranformers with price of S$16.90 is also reduced to S$8.00/S$5.00...
