Put me on your list please
Hope everyone is doing well. I've just been reading a lot and sitting on my ass watching tv and playing vidya. What's everyone else up to? I don't even know who's around anymore. Are people like Snake, TBlocks and Challenger still knocking about?
Honestly nothing new is really grabbing my attention at this moment in time. I got into the first season of Last Kingdom if you're into historical Anglo Saxon and Viking aesthetics but my interests started waning in season 2 and haven't really picked it back up again.
I read most of the book series that The Last Kingdom is based on a few years ago, was a good read but I got a bit bored of it just being Uhtred being betrayed and failing to get Bebbanburg over and over again. The show was pretty cool but it lost my interest too lol
I caved and bought Siege Shockwave. I feel so dirty because it's a Voyager with armor that I don't even like but I really wanted it...he still looks pretty good if you just hide that armour away in a box
I want to see if I can fit it on anyone else lol
Ordered TR Overlord too. It's not entirely accurate to his IDW representation, but since the TR one is £40 and the Mastermind Creations one is like £200 I don't really care
Alright I finally got around to the alt mode photo shoot
Is that Bumbleprime the 3A one? Damn that looks good. Not gonna lie, I cannot stand a majority of the post-DOTM Movie designs, especially with those uncanny metal-human faces. Galvatron from AOE is literally one of the worst things I've ever seen. TLK Megs is a sexy motherfucker though.
I've been learning stop motion with an app on my phone, experimenting with my Transformers. Here's Galaxy PrimeOUR WORLDS ARE IN DANGER
TO SAVE THEM WE MUST FIND THE FOUR CYBER PLANET KEYS
I wrote an article on my picks of five of the worst figures to exist, enjoy.
Anyone remember a short lived Transformers TV show called Robots in Disguise? It was a series made in Japan that preceded the Unicron trilogy of shows (which were also Japanese-produced).
Of course, who could forget the shark poet himself?
If I pull back the skin, my pp turns from 8=D into a 8==Э
I'm in love. I like the Masterpiece figures, but I personally find it kinda boring to just be a screen accurate representation of the character, so I prefer stuff like Siege. I wouldn't mind that Shockwave thoughIt does annoy me that they've suddenly changed to trying to pull off 100% cartoon accuracy in the last few years, instead of just settling for the 60-75% they used to. I don't mind cartoon style, but it looks weird having realistic cart parts Sideswipe standing next to squashed cartoon Bumblebee. Even the Starscream I have doesn't really match because it's a super old mold compared to the other 3.
The smaller ones don't really grab my attention much but when I see one for a good price I usually snatch it up, got SS Barricade for a tenner a few weeks ago which I'm happy with.
As for the comics, IDW has collected the entire run into trade paperbacks of both phases, including all released material such as spotlights etc.
I'm not sure how clued in you are on the comics, but when phase 1 ended they split off into two concurring stories, More than Meets the Eye and Robots in Disguise. MTMTE was actually where I started earlier this year and I enjoyed it a great deal, despite missing out on loads of stuff happening beforehand. About a week ago I decided to go back to the paperbacks and read it from the start, and it's great. Some arcs and art can be a bit meandering, but it's a great experience overall. The paperbacks have both RiD and MTME included, so you'll read a few issues of MTME before switching over to RiD and vice versa. Personally I find MTME because it's more of a lighthearted and funny space adventure whilst RiD is more focused on the efforts to rebuild Cybertron.
I've been reading it all on Readcomicsonline, but you didn't hear that from me
I used to have a whole bunch when I was a kid, but I sold them all. Wish I didn't now, but I've bought a few of the high end collector ones over the last 4 or 5 years
I'm in love. I like the Masterpiece figures, but I personally find it kinda boring to just be a screen accurate representation of the character, so I prefer stuff like Siege. I wouldn't mind that Shockwave though
honestly my entire perception of transformers has been completely tainted by michael bay
I can't lie, that's what got me into it back in 07 but the comics and some of the cartoons are really good
Anyone else here into Transformers? I've been really into the franchise this year, binging the comics hard and collecting my favorite characters' figures. I just picked up Titans Return Sixshot today and I'm really happy with him, though the limbs are a bit floppy.
