My Favourite… Character – Rodimus

When presented with as open-ended a question as “describe your favourite something-or-other to do with Transformers”, one can find their mind quickly becoming as blank and featureless as the void Unicron was so fond of back in the old Marvel days. And so, after a good deal of back-and-forth and trying to be all clever-clever […]

Making the Most Of Your Transformers Display

Adult collector conundrum 1: I love the things that I collect, I’ve got limited space to display them as it is and know I’ll want to get more in the future. Adult collector conundrum 2: If I cram loads into my display case I can proudly display my collection, but none of them really stand […]

10 Most Irritating Bay Movie-verse Characters

I see myself as something of an anomaly among  Transformers fans. I grew up with G1 and I like the Michael  Bay movies. What?! You heard me. For what they are, I find them quite entertaining. That’s not to say I don’t recognise some of the huge issues that the movies have. No movies perfect. […]

Transformers: The Last Knight Trailer Opinions

So the latest trailer has been released for Transformers 5 or ‘Michael Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight’ to use its full title. So I thought I’d write a little piece with my initial reactions. Now, say what you will about the Transformers movies but they are what they are. No-one’s going to these things for […]

We’ll Always Have G1

Hot on the heels of Simon Plumbe’s excellent article about the Bay movies: http://www.autoassembly.org.uk/michael-bay-ruined-childhood/ I coincidentally decided to show the first Transfomers Bay movie to my friend’s son today, and it was fascinating to see how he reacted to the movie. When I originally watched the movie, I was surrounded by people who were already very […]

Three Transformers Video Games We’d Like to See

Transformers is a behemoth in terms of its ability to generate spin-offs from its core product. Unlike other massive franchises such as Star Wars or Toy Story, Transformers began with the toy and grew from there to develop comics, books, films, animated series and video games. After Hasbro bought the Diaclone and Microman toy lines, […]

Does The Transformers Franchise Need To Take A Break?

While the toys themselves have been around since the 1970s, Transformers itself as a franchise has only been with us since 1984. However, in the last 30+ years it has reinvented itself and reimagined the toys, comics, and characters countless times to not only continue to appeal to new generation of fans but, taking a […]

G1 Plot Holes That Need To Be Fixed Part One – Can Autobots Fly Or Not?

There are still parts of the Transformers Universe that I have yet to explore, but I’m gradually getting there. I used to be a G1 and G1 only guy when it came to Transformers, but over the years I’ve learned to enjoy exploring other iterations such as Armada and Prime. It was when watching Transformers […]

Third Party Transforming Toys – Do We Know Enough?

We may be playing a game that we’ve indulged in since we were young children, but we’re not kids any more. We are in the position to make ethical, responsible choices about our purchases. With that in mind, I’d like to ask how much we really know about the purchases we’re making when we’re collecting […]
