    The only thing is that, with that title, I am mandated to compare it to these game trailers, which are among the greatest TF pieces ever made (not to mention brilliant song choices- something that is really key to developing TF mythos, IMO).

    He was released by Takara as an exclusive in 1997, sold separately and with Rhinox. In 2000, Hasbro sold him on their Hasbro Collectors website, where he was repurposed as Ravage/Tripredacus Agent.

    An interesting tidbit came out of the 2019 Toy Fair regarding the live action Transformers films.

    Several online media outlets have reported the following:
    I hope this means the upcoming films will be set in the 1980s rather than present day. As an older fan of Transformers, I appreciate the film being set during the period when it was initially introduced. It's also a simpler time. This would also allow more distance from the Bayformers in the sense of time and continuity connections.

    Those are CG renders. The actual colors won't be metallic.

    Sorry to burst your bubble on that, but I felt it necessary to keep things in perspective. Metallic paint tends to be a bit more expensive than standard paint applications. They can use metallic plastics at the outset and then use base color paint to make the figure. Metallic plastic is cheaper. Takara often did metallic paint, but with the push for brand unification between the two companies, metallic paint applications will probably be more rare than before.

    I'm a bit late on this due to Toy Fair coming when it did, but in honor of Valentine's Day this month, a tribute to G1 and BW couples.

    For anyone that didn't catch this yesterday, Paramount put out an April Fools 80's style commercial for Bumblebee's home video release on VHS.

    KBB (third party Transformers company) has finally released their 2nd creation - Bumblebee. You can see it on tf-direct.com.
    I did some research and I hear on Facebook that it's OS (OverSized). I was hoping for something more in scale with the Optimus Prime I bought from them. I know it's only $15, but I'm thinking of waiting to see if they come out with a non OS version. If not, I might pull the trigger on him so my Optimus has a buddy on my shelf at work.

    I used to be hyped by the series but the films kinda killed it for me. I need to catch up with them but can't get around to do that.

    Can we get Stan Bush to do a cover of the Avengers Main Theme with cheesy eighties lyrics?
