Bintech Collection

Today, I decided to revisit this excellent toyline for a friend and colleage, Katsura-san. He showed me part of his collection made up of many beautiful cars. I would also like to introduce him to a wonderful world of Transformers.

A toyline made for adult and car lovers the Binatech.

There are too many excellent pieces for this toyline but I have only time enough to feature 2 figures. Without the transforming instruction manual it took me hours to transform just 2 . Tracks and Mirage.

Same mold different colour and a new head. Vola!! We have Mirage on the left and Hot Rod on the left.

Both of them transformed into FORT GT


A closer look at the beautiful car it transforms into....

All Binatechs are 1/24 scale. And like most Die Cast Car model it comes with very detailed interior, completed with steering wheels, Gear stick and handbrakes handle.

Another key gimmick of the toyline is the steering wheels. For all model the front wheels and turn from left to right and both side of the wheels are synchonized like a real car..

Now lets take a look at Tracks and Silver Streak.

Tracks transformed in to a Dodge Viper.

When time allows, I will take more pictures of the rest of my Binatech collection.

Transformers Zone.

Little was known about this series, in fact there was only an Opening episode and the rest of the story was continued in Comic strip. It was 1 year after the Victory Series. This series has later little new characters and all the Decepticons were recycled from older series. To name a few..

King posedon, Trypitcon, Predaking, Overload... and... i can't rem the rest.

At the request of a friend, I am posting some pics of my Transformes collection. But I was too lazy to take them out from my display to show them individual.

And lately, I manged to get the Wonderfest Exclusive. CMS Dia Atlas..

Want to learn more about? Watch the animation here.

Part 2.

Featuring my favourite purchase of the week.
Bought quite a few stuffs lately.
1. MP-06
2. Voyager Optimus pime
3. Long Arm
4. Transformers Movie G1 Jazz (Redeco)
5. Transformers Movie G1 Starscream (redeco and retool)
7. BT- Electro Disruptor Rujin
8. And my most anticipated CMS MMS Dia Atlas.

Finally I got something the rest of the world are not buying.. CMS Dia Atlas. I will be talking more about it in my Next post.
Lately, everyone seems to be collecting Transformers. there was no exclusivity anymore. About 2 years back, a lot of Transformers collectors seems to lost interest in Transformers and wew talking about quiting. ( I almost gave up too) How things have change in just a few months. With the announcement of Transformers Movie. Fans were filled with anticipation. And when images of the Transformer movie characters were reveal. The movie was faced with so much critisium many fans thought it would be a flop and wanted to boycott the movie.
But when the movie is out. Michael Bay has his last laugh. While Hasbro executives would no longer need botox as their facial muscles must has been numb smiling.
BT18. Rujin, BT at one point was only selling at 1500 yen.. How the world of Transformers has change.. I have to pay 150 for BT 18 and 180 for BT 17.

I could not even buy an extra piece of open it out.... So you guys can only see the box.

Robovision Optimus Prime.
I have feature Robovision Optimus prime before, but I decided that the last time did not do
this wonderful toy enough justice.

To me he is certainly one of the best toy that come out from the Transformers movie toyline.
My limited vocabulary will not do enough justice this wonderful toy. I will let the pictures to the talking.

Comparison with leader class prime.
