Comic Fiesta Mini 2014, which will be held in Penang Times Square on the 27th and 28th of September, welcomes yet another guest cosplayer to its midst.
It’s been moons since any major announcement for the greatest event of the year, Anime Festival Asia 2014, which will be held on the island nation of the Lion City.
With the passing of Anime Festival Asia Indonesia 2014 last week, looks like the officials finally decided to release some info for the upcoming end-of-year event.
As quoted above on the post title, I really didn’t expect myself getting this figure at all.
Re-released as a complement to Michael Bay’s latest movie Transformers: Age of Extinction (Known as Lost Age in Japan), the Voyager Class AD-12 Revenge Optimus Prime is based upon its appearance in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2nd movie in the Movieverse), having nothing to do with the latest movie at all… ^^;
Albeit too complicated in design, I’m fascinated with the over all feel of the original Movieverse Optimus Prime ever since I saw the 1st movie, but the only good-looking figures of him are a rarity nowadays.
As mentioned, I never intend to acquire this one at all, instead I’ve placed my attention to Voyager Class AD-02 Classic Optimus Prime which is featured on the early parts of the latest movie: Movieverse Optimus Prime Robot Mode with a classic G1 Vehicle Mode.
I’ve pre-ordered AD-02 from a local store called Toon Shoppe along with a third-party mod parts set for my Fall of Cybertron Grimlock, but so far I’ve never hear any news from the store.
When asked after a couple of months of official release date of AD-02, the owner uncle of the store told me I can get a refund if I could no longer wait (Which I did) but he threw in another surprise at me when I finally pay a visit a few weeks later (I paid a visit one week prior but his shop had already closed for the day by the time I reached it).
I’ll definitely black list this uncle’s store from now on after I got the PO’d stuff since according to him I’ll give up my deposits if I cancel them, spitting all sorts of mumbo-jumbo excuses such as the local distributor being Hasbro, their Takara Tomy stocks will always be behind schedule from official release dates, blah blah blah…
