How to Transform Transformers into a Modern Day Franchise

When the Autobots first assembled in 1984 and began their onslaught on the mainstream media, the entertainment industry looked very different than it does today. Despite the fact that the toys dominated our view of the brand for most of our childhood, with the G1 cartoon and Marvel UK comics for support, there’s no getting […]

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.

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 […]
