Transform all over the place.

Oh yeah, a 4th film is out later this month, has dinobots and what not. Sadly the Cyberverse has been reduced to repaints (though one comes with a BW basic Terrosaur repaint of all things, flip changer ftw).


I broke down and imported the Japanese version of Generations Waspinator, he's freaking good. Those colours are spot on.


Seriously glad to see Beast Wars figures appearing again, have a Rhinox and Rattrap en-route so stay tuned jerks.


If you haven't got a Waspinator, import this version, so nice. DO IT.


Oh Cyberjets, you are the bee's (not that Bee) knees. And this G2 deluxe Dreadwing who is a repaint with a new head of IDW Stealth Bomber Megatron in those 1994 colours. Glorious, and lets face it: those Cyberjets are perfect toys, they could be remade for Cyberverse or those Legend's two packs and all they need is heel Spurs.


I also picked up this Beast Hunters Prowl, a minor retool of Smokescreen. Not a bad deluxe and my first Beast Hunters mainline figure. His head sculpt is excellente too. Shame about the roof and bonnet kibble on his arms (fake robot mode chest). Still no regrets and yeah that head sculpt is fun.


Oddly I've never taken photos of this duo, they combine into an ice cream truck in the 2nd film before getting their own individual alt modes. Love'em or hate'em (they're not characters you're meant to take seriously) I love this truck mode and the 2 bots are goofy and adorable.


Anyway, that's it for this post so have some sexy Z-Bots, the only set I had, Robertcop, Not2D2 and Elephant-209.

  2. Looking into collecting Transformers, what line do I start with?

    Also, I know you have plenty of 4 inch figures, does any Transformers line fit in with them well?

    1. Collecting Transformers, it all comes down to what you like the look and are willing to pay.

      If you want perfect high end modern interpretations of the original 1980s Transformers, you should go with the Masterpiece line as that's really kicked into high gear lately (too costly for me).

      You could for the Generations line which does smaller, less pricey re-interpretations of characters from all the years and does a lot of tie ins with the current IDW comic run.

      You also have the various movie, tv show related toys.

      Try tfwiki.net for info on everything Transformers, fiction and toys.

      As for 4inch compatible Transformers, most deluxe class bike-formers are about 1/18 scale, anything else are in their own scale (and fluctuate constantly)
