Episode Review: Transformers S01 Ep01 “More Than Meets the Eye, Part 1”

“Prime told me there’d be days like this” More than Meets the Eye Part One serves as an introduction to the epic war between the Transformers. We learn that the Transformers are a unique race of robots who live on the planet Cybertron. Early on in the show, the scene is set as we see […]

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. […]

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.

Episode Review: Beast Wars S01 Ep03 “The Web”

Following on from my review of the opening episode of Beast Wars, the two parter continues where the story left off, with Optimus Primal and Predacon turncoat Dinobot bringing their head-to-head to a close as they challenged each other over the position for the leadership of the Maximals…

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 […]

Merchandise Review: G1 Transformers Top Trumps

I’ve been a fan of Top Trumps ever since I was a kid. Despite its simplicity, it’s a fun, compelling game and the sheer diversity of licences that have been attached to the brand in recent years have made it truly collectible. Gone are the days of sports cars, military vehicles, and relatively mundane subjects… […]
