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 […]

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’ […]

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 […]

Michael Bay Has Ruined My Childhood

“Michael Bay, you’ve destroyed my childhood!”. It’s a common phrase (or something far worse that I’m not willing to repeat here) that’s seen online every couple of years each time a new live-action Transformers movie is released, either cinematically or when it makes its way onto home video. There’s no getting away from the fact […]

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 […]

Transformation: Opening My Optics To The Rest Of The Transformers World

Up until several years ago, I was a Transformers G1 cartoon fan. I genuinely struggled to get into anything that was not G1 cartoon, or a toy that came from the G1 cartoon. This may not sound like much of a Transformers fan to many of you. The Transformers universe is so diverse now with […]

Game Review:- Transformers – Commodore 64 / Spectrum (Ocean Software)

Gaming has always been my first love, right since the 1970s and despite the high-street presence of the toys and comics and daily serialised screening of the G1 cartoon, I tried to avoid Transformers first time around. However, as someone who was passionate about gaming on the Commodore 64, I was eager to own as […]

Fiction – Prime Target

This was it. Weeks of meticulous planning have led us all here, to this point right now. A single lapse, a moment of confusion, indecisiveness or just plain bad luck could destroy everything we’ve worked so hard to achieve. It was almost in my grasp. I reach out, willing my fingers to comply with my […]

The History Of Transformers Video Games Part 1 – The 80s

It’s not just toys, television shows and comics where the Transformers franchise has been dominant for over 30 years. For almost as long as the brand has been in existence, we’ve been treated to a plethora of video games for almost every major platform. In this ongoing series, we’ll be looking at this chequered history […]
