Takara Tomy Legends Wheelie and GoShooter LG29 review and pics!

Without delay, lets get started!


Boxing and contents

Takara Legends Wheelie
 


 


 


 

Looking good here. Wheelie is very difficult to find now unless you shop at Ebay. I obtained this figure for $25 shipped. Once again, I hesitated to buy this legends toys and paid a higher price when I finally wanted him. Anyhow, same old Takara gimmick where it comes with a comic-relief style manga. Wheelie and Goshooter are playing soccer against Galvatron who is using Megatron's head. How the high and mighty have fallen. Not to mention, Wheelie is also making trouble to Arcee and the other female autobots.

Here is the full synopsis:


Out of the box (Wheelie and GoShooter):

Takara Legends Wheelie
 


 


 


 


 


Takara Legends Wheelie
Both in focus

Shuta Go is a human that partnered up with his living transtector, GoShooter (flip those two names in reverse). Shuta is part of the Super-God masterforce G1 continuity; a continuity I am unfamiliar with. Anyone interested, click on the link for his full bio: Not much to say about GoShooter. Easily transformable and love the visor for his headmaster gimmick.


As for Wheelie the toy, I'm glad Takara/Hasbro made a legends assortment rather than the overgrown deluxe remold Jazz figure we had a few years ago. Too bad this Wheelie doesn't come with his slingshot. Wheelie is nice looking though sometimes the different shades of Orange just put me off. The glass case on his chest is superb looking. However, my Wheelie figure isn't without flaws. Sometimes Wheelie has trouble standing because his foot is just flat out straight with all that weight in his body forcing him to fall backwards from time to time. The arms would sometimes peg off as I am trying to transform him, which can be troublesome to some collectors. The idea of a arm falling off is never a good sign, but in this case it's easily re-attachable.

Thank God for a good day in the Big Apple Final days; Oct 25-26, 2016 Columbia University and Chelsea Highline

Columbia University

 


 


 


 














Why Columbia University? Got a chance to check out this fast moving campus and this is where they shot Ghostbusters (1984) and the Spider-man trilogy.

Brooklyn Promenade




 


 

Let the pics do the talking. Started out a little late this day but nevertheless this is a good place to stroll by and take some decent pics of the city. Recommended if you are in Brooklyn.

Thank God for a good day in the Big Apple Day 6; Oct 23, 2016 Times Square and Central Park.



Thank the good Lord Jesus that it was a sunny day. Today I spent most of my time in Times Square and Central Park. I had to stop by and take pictures of Madison Square Garden of course.

Some of the random places I shot, which included the Disney store, Rockefeller Center, NBC tower, and Radio City Hall.

Thank God for a good day in the Big Apple Day 5; Oct 22, 2016

Let day 5 commence! Wall St!

 


 


 


 

This pic above is the Manhattan Museum of Arts in Ghostbusters II (1989)


 


Wall St was nice. Not to mention, it was overcast this day with very little rain. The hardest pic to get was Charging Bull. This was the best pic I got. I then went to Koreatown to eat. I first walked by the Manhattan Municipal Building again where I shot the grassy area across this time. This is where they shot a scene in Spider-man 2 (2004)
