We talk to James Roberts!

British writer James Roberts ushered in a new golden age for Transformers comics with More Than Meets The Eye, an emotional, thoughtful and exciting drama that ran for 82 issues between January 2012 and November 2018. While the comic was not to everyone’s taste, the series had an overwhelmingly positive reception and did what few Transformers comics have ever done – brought new fans into the … Continue reading We talk to James Roberts!

High-End Baby Bumblebee Movie Figures by Killerbody

Perfect for those that like high-end babies! Like Angelina Jolie. We’re reporting on these mostly for their absurdity and the audaciousness of that $69.99 price. These figures are pitched at a different class of bobble-head collector; someone with a lot of money and, it seems, poor eyesight – their claim of “Totally Ten Different Characters!” is a deplorable lie. Glancing at the poster reveals their … Continue reading High-End Baby Bumblebee Movie Figures by Killerbody

WFC: Siege Prowl and Chromia In-Hand Images

Thanks go to Autobase Aichi for these pictures of the soon-to-be-released Prowl and Chromia, part of the highly anticipated second wave of War For Cybertron: Siege toys. While there are some stunners in Wave 2, we can’t help but feel that Prowl and Chromia are together the low point of the series so far. Chromia has some nice detailing, but that can’t hide the fact she’s … Continue reading WFC: Siege Prowl and Chromia In-Hand Images

Prime 1 Studios Blitzwing Statue Images and Details

Let’s be real about this, folks. If you want to call this “Blitzwing”, that’s up to you, and you’d technically be correct. But that’s a bit like calling the Tesco own-brand cola that your wife buys “Coke”. You’re just lying to yourself to make it easier to swallow. This is Starscream. Starscream how he was always meant to be in the movies. Back in 2006 when … Continue reading Prime 1 Studios Blitzwing Statue Images and Details

WFC: Siege Wave 2 Micromasters In-Hand Images

Thanks go to our friends in Japan Snakas Blog for providing us with a look at Ravage, Laserbeak, Stakeout and Red Heat out of package! Wait. Red Heat? Wasn’t that a film? It was actually two films, released less than three years apart, in the eighties. Hasbro couldn’t get the rights to “Red Hot” we suppose, presumably because it’s not defensible as a trademark and because it has … Continue reading WFC: Siege Wave 2 Micromasters In-Hand Images

G1 Warpath and Gears Re-Issues Coming Soon!

Here’s … Continue reading G1 Warpath and Gears Re-Issues Coming Soon!

Generations Selects Swoop and Ricochet Available for Pre-Order

Me Swoop no see retail release! A short time ago, mysterious listings began to appear for “Red Swoop” and “Ricochet”. Hasbro must’ve done a deal with Ronseal, because for once we got exactly what it said on the tin: repaints of Power of the Primes Swoop (with a red chest) and Jazz (in his Guy Fieri cosplay) . More surprising perhaps was their method of … Continue reading Generations Selects Swoop and Ricochet Available for Pre-Order

We Talk to Simon Furman…

It never ends-SHEEEAGH! When Transformers was plopped out of Hasbro’s Rhode Island factory in 1984, the toy maker demanded a full assault on the malleable minds of young American children to help their new toys sell. An animated series and monthly comic book were commissioned at once, to the immediate delight of the target audience. All three of these siblings then swam across the Atlantic like … Continue reading We Talk to Simon Furman…

2019 Optimus Prime Re-Issue Spotted at US Retail

The latest incarnation of our beloved G1 Optimus Prime has been seen in the wild! Well, this one certainly had a relatively short gestation period. Only a few weeks after the rumour of a new (old?) Generation 1 Optimus Prime re-issue hit the interwebs, the toy has been found at retail in the United States for the grimace-inducing price of $50. As might be plain to … Continue reading 2019 Optimus Prime Re-Issue Spotted at US Retail
