Transformers Toy Review: Titans Return – Deluxe Class Sergeant Kup with Flintlock

I don’t know what it says about me, but two of my favourite Transformers characters are Ironhide and Kup. The two cantankerous, bashed up old warriors. Both have similarities in their characters and both have had some pretty naff toys over the years although Kup can claim to be coming out ahead in that respect, […]

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 […]

Transformers Toy Review: Titans Returns Broadside with Blunderbuss

The Generation 1 triple changes have been some of my favorite characters: Astrotrain who changed from a realistic NASA space shuttle to an old fashioned train was a cool contradiction of technologies. Octane was a fun anti-hero who, although he was a Decepticon, played the part of hero due to being hunted down by Galvatron. […]

Transformers, Roll Out! How Hasbro’s Robots took over the World

People of different ages from all over the world fell in love with the Transformers as early as September 17 1984, when the first episode of the 30-minute American animated TV series was launched. It did not take long before Transformers: The Movie was seen in cinemas in 1986 but grown-up fans wanted more, and filmmakers […]

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. […]

Combiner Wars – Legends Class Powerglide Toy Review

When I was a kid, I had one Transformers VHS tape. It contained two episodes that I watched over and over again because that’s all I had until a few years later when my step-brother came along with more. Those two episodes were season three’s ‘Call Of The Primitives’ and ‘The Girl Who Loved Powerglide’ […]

Titans Return – Deluxe Triggerhappy Toy Review

Here we go with another Deluxe Titans Return review. This time I’ll be looking at Decepticon Triggerhappy and his Titan Master partner, Blowpipe. This figure came in wave 3 and what a pleasant surprise he was. I was born too late and missed the first coming of the Transformers. I got the tail-end of it. […]

Titans Return – Deluxe Blurr Toy Review

As I mentioned in my review for Legends-Class Bumblebee, the Titans Return line has impressed me. Along with some new and awesome representations of classic characters, the transformations have been interesting and the sculpting has come on leaps and bounds. So without further ado, I’d like to give my thoughts on the very first TR […]

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 […]

Toy Review: Titans Return Legends-Class Bumblebee

Another year, another Bumblebee. It seems Hasbro has a real love for making a multitude of Bumblebee figures year in, year out. This year is no exception with the Titans Return line bringing with it yet another version of this iconic little lovebug. I will admit, when it was announced, I was suprised they didn’t […]
