    New Arrival - Two classics meet for the first time - GW-206K ICERC & Friend

    Another day, another parcel. I had a couple of G's and a couple of Transformers arrive this morning and I could resist posting about one of each (the two not in here are a GW-6900KG and a Perceptor Takara 19 re-issue Transformer). The subjects of this post though are a GW-206K-7JR ICERC Frogman and an original Generation 1 Japanese D-17 Soundwave with Rumble and headphones. That's two wonderful examples of each type. Allow me to proceed with the eye-candy...

    The GW-206K was listed as used on the store that I bought it from but as I've bought quite a few G-Shocks from the same store, I had a good idea that they often over exaggerated any possible flaws or marks with their watches. Upon arrival I immediately gave it a good inspection and the only slight mark on it was where the side of the strap had rubbed against the blue of the cardboard box. A quick clean with a baby wipe though and this came off easily. Everything else was spotless, it basically could pass as NOS.

    Now, onto Soundwave. I'd probably guess that this is a rarer beast than the Frogman. At least in Europe, if not in Japan. This was nabbed off of Yahoo Japan and I was the only bidder. My winning bid was only 4500 Yen, that's just under £40! That's an unbelievable price for such a great Transformer. Now, I guess lots of collectors probably passed this one up due to the wear on the box (tear at top right corner and corner wear) and the fact that it has been played with, stickers applied and has a few bits missing (instructions, two missiles and plastic cassette case). It did come with the headphones though, something which only this version was released with. None of the USA or European releases had them and neither have any of the re-issues.

    For me though, the fact that it has been played with just means that I can play and transform it to my hearts content without the risk of it losing more value . My sons GI Joe and Marvel figures had better beware, the mighty Soundwave is soon going to teach them a lesson or two. Unboxing this immediately brought back some great childhood memories. I can remember getting a Soundwave around the same time as my first Sony Walkman. When I wasn't listening to Thriller by Michael Jackson on the Walkman, I had this strapped to my belt or jeans pretending I was .
