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 […]

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 Things We Want from a New Transformers Game

It is fair to say that 2017 is shaping up to be an exciting year for Transformers fans. Not only is there the latest instalment of Michael Bay’s blockbuster franchise – The Last Knight – to look forward to, but also a new mobile game. Developed by Kabam Games, Transformers Forged To Fight is expected […]

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 […]

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 […]
