Side-Tracked: Recent Haul of "Such" (173) - X Transbots Apollyon (aka "proper" G1 Masterpiece Megatron)

Collected my Apollyon (aka "proper" G1 Masterpiece Megatron) last night!!! Very happy.... Cost approximately SGD174.15 after a SGD10 agent fee offset...


A nice drawing of Apollyon on the inner box... A bit squashed on the side but doesn't really matter...


And the box splits into 2 to house Apollyon and the accessories... The lower openings have broken seal tapes, hopefully is the seller open to check before sending out, and not a re-furbished version... hahahaha... me a hygiene freak... The boxes also open up at the glued flaps very very easily too... Anyway, don't really care...


Also comes with a remedy pack that consists of a super cute mini screwdriver and 2 replacement sockets for shoulder joints... I will be trying to enhance the existing sockets with super glue methods first, if fail then switch to these 2 new ones...


The "collector's" card is super thick and think it is made of plastic...


A closer look at the tray of accessories... Lots of stuff, probably won't be using.... Like the Vector Sigma key the most... maybe will consider getting Apollyon to hold it when displaying... And I notice the infamous orange cap on the black barrel, which many Apollyon owners seem to have a difficult time getting it off... I pray hard that mine won't...


... and my prayers are answered! The orange cap is not even glued at all, and I can just gently slide it off!!! Lucky....


And here's the tray containing Apollyon... Nice... Oh, the silver barrel also has an orange cap...


... and like the previous one, it is also not glued on !!! ... Many thanks, Apollyon!!! From here onwards, I shall address you as... MEGATRON !!!!


Megatron, time to pose... hahahaha... Joints are quite ok actually, and still has the common shoulder problems but not very serious...


And very lucky to have the Fusion Cannon's LED to work properly! Batteries included! Hahahaha...


Today manage to find some time after my dentist visit to try the transformation... actually it is not too difficult after looking so many Youtube clips... Need to do a bit of shaving and trimming sometimes to perform the transformation step... can be forgiven... hahahahaha... Parts don't really fit perfectly though... but still acceptable...


A back view of the gun mode... Handle is too freaking big!!! Hahahahahahaha...


The "armoured-on" gun mode... Don't really know the actual name... hahahaha... very happy...

  1. 1 question, your apollyon is version 1 or version 2? version 2 has dark/greyish color pin under the fusion canon.. V1 is white color.(pin tat connects the canon to his arm)
