Transformers: Age Of Extinction – Leader Class Optimus Prime Review

I enjoy the Michael Bay movies. There. I said it. However, with each movie, I make an empty promise to not buy as many of the toys this time around. Of course I break that promise every time. Usually what leads me to break that promise is a sense that I have to complete a […]

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, […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Toy Review: Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Deluxe Smokescreen

When it comes to Transformers, I’ve always taken quite a different approach to most collectors. With one or two exceptions, I’ve not been one for buying as many toys as possible from specific ranges or aiming for complete sets and buying everything as it is released. I’ve never understood those who have gone out and […]

Geekology – Masterpiece Tracks & Road Rage

The Geekology team take a look at the Masterpiece releases of Tracks from G1 and Road Rage from what some know as Neo-G1. The full video will direct auto-play if you read more…

Episode Review: Beast Wars S01 Ep03 “The Web”

With the pilot episode out of the way, which I’ve already taken a look at in more detail previously, Beast Wars’ first season can commence properly with its third episode, The Web. Now that we’ve been introduced – albeit briefly in some cases – to all of the show’s primary cast, it’s time for the […]
