  1. N.E.S.T Base. 3A Premium Scale Optimus Prime Dark Source 1/18 scale USMC Customer Headsculpt
  2. I've been collecting for about 3 years and some change. (for Figures.) Comics I've collected all my life. I mainly collect Comics, Art, Legends and Transformers. You can always check me out on YouTube under Worldbreakerkou.
  3. As much as I spend my time online, keeping up with the latest reveals, leaks, and other news, there are still times when I walk into the store and still find a treasure that I had no idea existed. It’s amazing that, despite my constant browsing on forums and Facebook groups, I can still walk into a Target, a Walmart, or a GameStop and see something that has me say ‘WHAT?! THIS EXISTS?!’ Or even a simple ‘whoa that is way cooler than I had anticipated’. The latter happened to me much more recently. I am not a fan of transformers. Like at all. And my knowledge of the franchise is as surface level as it gets. But when I saw the Siege Optimus Prime earlier this year, I had to have it. I knew that the line was coming, but that was all I knew.! But then I saw it and I literally said ‘whoa this is way cooler than I had anticipated’. The former, where I found a figure or line I had no idea existed happened last spring/summer when I came upon the Jurassic World Legacy Collection at a Target. I knew there were figures from the new movie out, and Mattel had surprised me with how neat they were, but then I found Doctor Grant in the wild. It transported me back to my childhood and I bought up every figure in the line. Has anything like this happened to you? If so, which line or figure?

  6. There have been many animated shows for Transformers done over the years since the original G1 series premiered back in 1984. Some have been better than others, but for someone like me who grew up on the original, they never fully lived up to my expectations of what a new series should be, until now. The first chapter in the Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy premiers today on Netflix. While this new series is not a continuation of the original G1 show, it takes many aspects from that series and modernizes them in a way that I think will be very appealing to fans first introduced to Transformers back in the 80’s. The first chapter of this new show contains six 24-minute episodes. I don’t know if this was an intentional nod to the original show, but the first episode opens with characters Wheeljack and Bumblebee. Just like in the original, the two seek to replenish the Autobot’s energy supplies. In this version, we are presented with interesting twists like Bumblebee not being an actual Autobot. Instead, he is an independent scavenger hired by the Autobots to help them find Energon, the lifeblood of all Transformers. I think Bumblebee is presented here as a far more complex and interesting character than he was in the original series. The basic premise of the new show is essentially the same as always, the Autobots are engaged in a long-fought war with their more warrior-like counterparts known as the Decepticons. However, don’t necessarily expect your typical good vs. evil narration of this story like we’ve seen before. While the Decepticons are portrayed primarily as the bad guys here, like you would expect, their motivations for fighting the Autobots isn’t as cut and dry as you might think. Signals during the first chapter suggest the Decepticons actually may have legitimate grievances against their Autobot brothers. Like the original show, the Autobots are led by Optimus Prime who continues to exhibit the qualities of an honorable leader, and the Decepticons follow Megatron who is as ruthless as always. Once again though, don’t expect to see the same dynamics play out between these two leaders like we’ve seen before. The series takes great pains to hint at a past between these two that I think will make for a very interesting backstory, more so than what we have seen before, at least in the cartoons. While the series I think can be enjoyed by kids, I think the intent definitely was to make this one more for the adults. After all, this is a story about war, and they do a good job of portraying the effects of war can have on a civilization, very similar to what they did in the original Transformers animated movie. In other words, if you have young kids who might want to check this out, you may want to vet it first before letting them watch it. I don’t want to suggest it’s overtly violent, but at the same time things do happen that might be upsetting to younger kids so just use caution there. Overall, I liked the animation. It’s very dark, which is good in setting the tone for the story but made it hard to make out individual characters especially when it came to the many Decepticon Seeker jets featured in the battle scenes. Since all the Seekers have the same bodies, the only way to tell one from the other is with their colors, which did not always stand out well. The character designs are also true to their toy counterparts. Unlike in the original series, this was like watching the actual toys come to life on the screen. For the most part I think that is a good thing, but a few times movements like running looked a little off for some of the characters. One of the animation effects I really liked in the new show was Shockwave’s eye. I don’t know why, but I just thought it looked really cool. For the voice actors, I think they did a really good job here. When the new series was first announced, I was very surprised to see they did not bring in Peter Cullen from the original series and live movies to voice Optimus Prime. They brought in Jake Foushee who voiced Optimus for other shows. I had never heard him do Prime before now, but I will say he did a good job here. At times I actually thought I was hearing Cullen speak. Another voice I was really impressed with was Starscream, voiced by Sam Riegel. Many people over the years have tried to recreate what the late and great Chris Latta did for the character during the G1 series, and I think Riegel has come the closest to doing just that. And then there was Soundwave. While not quite as good as the original, they did a great job of recreating that unique tone Soundwave is known for from the G1 days. Going into this show I was a little leery. I was not terribly impressed with the Transformers: Combiner Wars animated web television series they did a few years ago. Even after watching the trailer for this new show, I had my reservations about it. I am very happy to report that those reservations were misplaced and that I walked away loving this new series. It’s not perfect, but I really think this is the show we fans of the original series have been waiting for and I highly recommend you check it out. Look for it on Netflix now.
  7. For you Back to the Future fans, it looks like based on this teaser released by Hasbro today, they will be doing a Transformers/Back to the Future mashup of the DeLorean. Details for this will likely be made this coming Friday during their Transformers Fan-Channel event which is said to show off 6 new items. Coverage for that event will be held over on TFormers.com. Last month we saw indications Hasbro was going to be doing a Transformers/Top Gun mash-up figure and last year they did a Ghostbusters Transforming Ecto-1.
  8. Thanks to these images that showed up on weibo.com, we have a look at what appears to be a Top Gun Transformers mash-up figure coming from Hasbro. It appears to go from F-14 fighter jet to a bot named Maverick. Since Hasbro isn't the master license holder for Top Gun products, this makes for an unexpected reveal but Paramount does have a new Top Gun movie coming out as well as working on several Transformers projects, so from that stand-pont I guess the mash-up makes sense. No details on where or how this will be released, perhaps as one of Hasbro's SDCC exclusives this year??? We will update you once more details are made available and of course until Hasbro actually confirms it we will also treat it as rumor.
  9. Netflix and Hasbro have partnered with Rooster Teeth to bring Transformers: War For Cybertron to Netfl;ix on July 30th. Rooster Teeth will produce the original series for Netflix and Polygon Pictures will serve as the animation studio. Transformers veteran FJ DeSanto (Transformers: Titans Return, Transformers: Power of the Primes) will serve as showrunner on the series with several contributing writers, including George Krstic (Megas XLR), Gavin Hignight (Transformers: Cyberverse), and Brandon Easton (Agent Carter, Transformers: Rescue Bots). It is the final hours of the devastating civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons. The war that has torn apart their home planet of Cybertron is at a tipping point. Two leaders, Optimus Prime and Megatron, both want to save their world and unify their people, but only on their own terms. In an attempt to end the conflict, Megatron is forced to consider using the Allspark, the source of all life and power on Cybertron, to “reformat” the Autobots, thus “unifying” Cybertron. Outnumbered, outgunned, and under SIEGE, the battle-weary Autobots orchestrate a desperate series of counterstrikes on a mission that, if everything somehow goes right, will end with an unthinkable choice: kill their planet in order to save it.
  10. Hasbro Pulse will be hosting a twofer for Fans First Friday on June 26th with a Transformers and GI Joe Events. Judging from the times, these are going to be TWO DIFFERENT reveals, not a crossover reveal, but you never know. Read on to see the official announcement and details.
  11. A company by the name of Super Impulse is launching a new line of 1.25" micro figures called "World's Smallest". These figures have three points of articulation, and includes a replica of the original action figure blister card, for display and storage, display stand and accessories. The are doing figures for G.I. Joe, Transformers, TMNT, Masters of the Universe, Power Rangers and Horror characters. Look for these to start seeing release in June and throughout the summer. You can pre-order these from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.
  12. Thanks to a listing found on the Amazon UK website, it looks like Hasbro is launching a new My Little Pony crossover line with other Hasbro based properties. The pony figures are listed at 4.5" and the Amazon listing gives our first look at the My Little Pony Ghostbusters themed figure. While not shown, other figures listed include Transformers My Little Prime and Power Rangers Morphin Pink Pony. There is also a boxset featuring the Ponies as Dungeon and Dragons characters.
  13. I've been collecting since I was a child in the 1980s; much of what I have reflects what I kept as a kid (G.I. Joe, Transformers, Voltron, Star Wars) but I have thinned it down to what I can show off to reduce a bunch of bins in storage. It is quite diverse with a lot of smaller toy lines represented; some of my favorites including Starcom, Captain Power, ExoSquad and COPS to name a few. The packaged Ninja Turtles were found in my grandparents attic when we cleaned out their house (fresh with a 1988 Kmart receipt). Cabinets are the Billy cases from IKEA with the optional doors and two DETOLF cases I got from a friend. My wife gifted me the basement when we moved in to do with as I pleased, these are the current results after 10 years of display.
  14. Ready for something really unique? Here's a Transformers/Marvel Legends Crossover Bludgeon! He was created using the Silver Samurai body and heavily modded helmet, Ghost Rider head, War Machine armor/forearms, TF Hoist shoulder for the backpack, Overwatch Reaper legs, KO TF Scrapper top for the shield, and some fodder parts. Bludgeon was primered with Bulldog Adhesion Promoter, sculpted sections using Aves Fixit Sculpt, hand painted, airbrushed metallic armor effects, and sealed with Mr Hobby premium Matte. His eyes are glass reflective and he has a 5mm port in his left arm. For more pics head to his page here: Pretender Bludgeon, Marvel Legends/Transformers crossover
  15. Deadline is reporting that Toy Story 4 director Josh Cooley has been picked by Hasbro’s entertainment studio eOne and Paramount to direct a big scale Transformers theatrical prequel that sources said focuses on an origin story. It takes place on Cybertron, the planet from which the good-guy and bad-guy robots came from. The film revolves around the relationship between Optimus Prime and Megatron. The film will have nothing to do with any of the live action Transformers film series and the Bumblebee spinoff. Hasbro/eOne is running point on the production of this film as making a big scale animated feature is easier than a live action tent pole because so much of the work can be done while respecting social distancing. That is an issue in the acceleration of the Transformers animated film, which has more or less begun production. The script was written by Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari and have been working on the animated film for several years. Both are credited with production work on Ant-Man and were the credited writers on Ant-Man and the Wasp. Josh Cooley is fresh from winning an Oscar for Best Animated Film for Toy Story 4 and Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Mark Vahradian and Hasbro/eOne are expected producers.
  16. I can take pics if needed, but here's a video of my collection. Pretty stoked that I just Cleaned up the Room
  17. Welp, here's mine, not as huge but it's decent :), wwell it is mostly consisted of Transformers and some plasma dragons from Mega Bloks which are rare nowadays or they're on ebay but are likely expensive not sure. Well it is mostly small since i really didn't make it up for most of collecting figures from other series like i have around 6 Marvel legends here, 2 Batman TAS figures there and a such. But i am indeed proud cause despite that i haven't gotten much chance to get more figures i definitely love figures for the most part. By the by, i do have some other figures but sadly i can't find them and others just broke miserably :(, sorry about that.
  18. How do Siege and Earthrise carry on the tradition of Transformers gimmicks and what would you like to see more of?
