My desire for Apeface started waaaay back in the 5th grade when I was living in Niagara Falls, New York. The Headmasters had just been released, but I only owned Scorponok and later Fortress Maximus. Yeah, poor, pitiful me. At any rate, it was well known among my classmates that I was still into Transformers...and I was the only one. The rest of them were busy talking about Debbie Gibson or Tiffany or whatever else was popular back then, but I was still buying Transformers. Just so it's clear, I had already discovered Guns N' Roses and Iron Maiden by this point, so musically, I was fine. At any rate, it turned out that there was one fellow Transformer fan in my class - a girl named Mary (I actually want to say that her name was Hillary, but that was a long time ago.). I don't know if any of you have actually been to Niagara Falls, but it's mostly farm land. And Mary would constantly invite me over to her house so I could help her slaughter chickens. Seriously. Anyway, one day Mary had a present for me - Spasma, Apeface's head! Mary told me that she wanted me to have him. I kept Spasma all the way until 2012 when I finally sold him at a nice price to purchase another figure. So for 26 years, I only had Apeface's head. Besides, I've had this image floating in my head for far too long:
|Seriously, I love Andy Wildman|
|I know I dropped my contact around here...|
El gorila invencible standing on his rear haunches, striking at a foe. My understanding that there are people that make an extension just for the likes of Apeface that will allow for a better overall look of the figure when attaching the head. I'll have to look into that.
As I mentioned earlier, this particular figure came with his paperwork.
So 26 years of procrastination have finally borne fruit. Am I pleased with myself? You bet. Is Apeface pretty freaking awesome? You know it. Up next, another entry in my ever-expanding collection!
