G2 - TURBOFIRE


This was my third review ever and as you can see it was barely a review. I LOVE short reviews that are to the point, so I was trying to keep them under 60 seconds. I am not Nicholas Cage however....and I am not wearing my hat that I wear almost everyday, all the time. I sleep in it. I bath in it. I have sex in it. Ask my wife! She hates it.

GRAY PLASTIC not my FRIEND



I know the economy is suffering, but do we have to suffer as consumers/collectors because of it? Every Transformers figure that is coming out these days either has substandard plastic or nasty gray plastic. Don't get me wrong, some of these molds are bad ass. If I were a plastic fembot I would totally jump Bludgeon's bones, but I am a 28 year old geeky toy collector who wants my bots looking like they do on the packaging. On most of the figures, like Bludgeon or Lockdown, its just a little annoying. However, when I got Scattershot, it was just plain terrible. Great mold, nice detail, but almost half of him was made of that horrible gray plastic. So I took matters into my own hand and repainted him how I thought he should have come. might not be everyone's taste, but I think he is a shit ton better.

HALLOWEEN


We had an awesome Halloween this year! My wife and I took little Bellabot trick or treating door to door for the first time. She usually goes to a school event called trunk or treat, but this year wanted to go through the neighborhood and scare the shit out of people dressed as a vampire/bat thingy. She had a blast! Only problem is she didn't understand that you aren't suppose to have conversations with the people when they open the door. She was trying to talk their heads off about her day. Nothing scared her at all the whole night. I tried...believe me. I ended up getting slapped at one point because I scared my wife when I was trying to scare my daughter. It was indeed a good time and cannot wait until next year.

Generation 1 Transformers Repro Stickers 84-85


I came across a CD for sell of sticker formats for Transformers Generation 1 Autobots/Decepticons Series 1 and 2 (84-85.) It included high quality images of the sticker sheets as well as a sticker guides for placement. All you have to do is buy sticker paper from Wal-Mart or Office Depot and you are set! I want to use it for some of the custom figures I have made. Big thanks to Wolfkang1 for passing this onto me.
