    The Ark (cool forearm design mechanism!) #Transformers #WarForCybertron #Netflix #warforcybertronkingdom

    When transformed into robot mode, his hands fold in to his sizable forearms. That doesn’t mean there’s a large hole there when his hand is extended! Check out the cool engineering on this beauty!

    Full gallery and review forthcoming. Thought you might want to check this out in the meantime!

    “Tonight at midnight, the final chapter of Transfofmers: War for Cybertron, KINGDOM drops on Netflix.
    I have the privilege of returning as Starscream and a few others, as well as (I think it’s safe to say now)lending my voice to one of my all-time favorite characters in sci-fi, Rattrap.

    I’ve had the immense honor of being in several different Transfofmers series now, alongside some stellar folks, personal heroes and very dear friends. These characters and franchise mean the world to me. Its hard to express just how much. I’ll try to find more words after watching for myself, but for now, to everyone involved, thank you so very much for trusting me with these fellas. To the rest of ya, hope you dig it.

    KINGDOM! Spoiler Free Review: #Transformers #WarForCybertron

    There is an old adage, which originates from a 1940 Thomas Wolfe novel “You can never go home again.” The idea here is that nostalgia “causes us to view the past in an overly positive light” and that the ‘home’ (past) that we often wish to return to, necessarily changes, just as much as we do over time. You can return to that place, but it’s not going to be quite the same.

    It is true. It’s not the same; and the “home” I’m metaphorically referring to here is Beast Wars, now in its 25th year anniversary. As I write and try to collect my thoughts, I’m reflecting on a particular scene with Rattrap. I won’t give away too much but suffice it to say, he’s on a mission. He’s infiltrated enemy territory, the stakes are high, but not a fate-of-the-universe high. There’s a moment, success or failure hinge upon his ability to use a Decepticon data pad. He’s fumbling around with it (because, of course, he’s totally unfamiliar with the tech), other characters (and we the audience!) are panicking because of course he keeps pushing the wrong buttons!!! Everyone is yelling at him. What will happen?! It’s hilarious! It’s intense! It’s CLASSIC Rattrap! My son and I, watching together, we’re cheering and yelling, oh my god! …. Yeah, this series is different than the original, but there are a few magical moments like this, where I felt like I was back in my early-20’s reliving the glory days of the Beast Wars and for that, I’m very grateful.

    Here's the thing. G1 fans are used to, even conditioned to seeing new and different versions of their 1980's favorites - every time a new series comes out. Since G1, we've seen a new looking/acting Optimus Prime battling Megatron in live action movies, Animated, Prime, Armada, RID, Cyberverse and countless comics from the days of MARVEL, to ongoing IDW, each creative team putting their own unique spin on things… With each iteration we've come to expect a new permutation of G1 characters. In short, G1 has been re-invented so many times, it almost feels normal.

    This is NOT the case with Beast Wars. That original series was so tight in terms of it's story and scope: A very small cast of Cybertronians from the distant future, travel back to a very specific time in Earth's past: before modern human civilization (thus no vehicle alt modes) but long after the G1 Ark Crash lands on Earth. Even from our first glimpse at the end of Earthrise, seeing Dinobot has witnessed the Ark’s crash landing on Earth - we can tell right from the start, this version of Beast Wars is going to be different!

    Are you ready for a new interpretation of Beast Wars?! Are you really though? … I mean, I noticed that Rhinox had FOUR FINGERS and a thumb on each hand! GAAAAAH! I honestly had to make an effort to not let it bother me! Beast Wars fans are picky! I know, because I’m one of them!

    One of the ways it’s different than the original: CG animation has come a LONG way since 1996! To see Beast Wars favorites, particularly in beast mode galloping over the landscape, swinging from trees, flying, expressing emotion, casting shadows (!!!) …. Is really a treat. This is what we always wanted from the original series, and finally now the dream is realized. Beast Wars in modern CGI is magnificent! Visually, this series is stunning.

    I think it’s precisely because Beast Wars hasn’t been “re-invented” before, that fans, like us, are going to react - STRONGLY - to every difference and every similarity… as compared to the original. My son grew up on Beast Wars. It was his introduction to Transformers. He knows it very well and considers himself as much of a fan, as I do. He and I watched together and we couldn’t help but react, vocally and emphatically! Most of it, we LOVED. A few things, we did not. We were mostly cheering wildly, occasionally cursing through virtually every

    Only four days left to go until the final chapter of the War For Cybertron Trilogy hits Netflix, is anyone else ultra excited to see them revisit the beloved Beast Wars series? albeit a completely different continuity and completely different versions of our favorite characters. I am really excited to see how they handle the story and characters.

    I'll be watching it as soon as it drops!

    Sureshot w/ Spoilsport #transformersg1

    He belongs in a very rare class of #Transformers figures, being one of the only G1 characters who has never had a modern upgrade and zero other versions of him exist in all the years of the brand's long and storied history! (Not even a Botcon Exclusive!) Alright Hasbro/Takara, maybe getting time to give this guy some love? Perhaps with all the Bumblebee toys and other more popular characters like Sunstreaker, the designers have just had enough with mostly yellow toys!?

    Sureshot and his Nebulan partner Spoilsport are one of the first series G1 Autobot Targetmasters. FWIW, when I was a kid, I painted his eyes blue with model airplane paint. Unaltered, this figure comes with white eyes on top of the black plastic head sculpt.

    Bear with me as I continue clearing through more old photos taken with my then state-of-the-art digital camera circa 1999 which I never got to uploading to the site! Better late than never. ;)

    Interesting thing about Thrust and that Cybertronian alt mode is that the deco may be an homage to the Thrust character in the Unicron Trilogy: Armada!

    “Happy #StudioSeriesSunday Transformers fans! Here is a preview of the remaining Wave 3 characters including Leader Class Grindor, Deluxe Class Bumblebee, Deluxe Class Jolt, and Voyager Class Thrust. These along with the ’86 Movie characters already revealed will be hitting shelves this summer!

    Good luck and happy toy hunting!

    Roger doger Optimus Prime! Roger Doger!! G1 Autobot Clones: Fastlane & Cloudraker #Transformers 1987

    Always thought it was a clever concept. Two "identical" robots that turn into very different things, in this case a <wink, wink!> *Cybertronian jet and road vehicle. Sure you have to use your imagination to to call this a plane or car, and sure you could tell them apart without needing to use the secret code 'rubsign' - but this was still the 80's and we were used to all that! The originals had diecast parts (the chest piece), they had a real heft and quality feel, even though they lacked any sort of pose-ability, typical for G1 toys in this era.
    https://www2.unicron.com/1987-transformers.html

    Unfortunately, they received only a brief cameo appearance in the G1 cartoons, The Rebirth Part 1, where they unsuccessfully tried to track down Pounce and Wingspan (Decepticon Clones) who had just stolen the key to the Plasma Energy Chamber! ... Always wanted more shows for season 4, oh the possibilities! Sigh ...

    “Transformers Reveals Pulse Con Covert Agent Ravage Figure and Teases Next HasLab Project (Exclusive)

    Transformers fans have a lot to look forward to lately, as not only are we getting new movies and the anticipated third chapter in the War for Cybertron series, but Hasbro's upcoming Pulse Con will feature a number of new figures for fans' collections. That includes a few Pulse Con exclusives, and we've got your exclusive first look at Pulse Con's new Transformers: Generations War for Cybertron Deluxe Agent Ravage and Micromaster Decepticons Forever Ravage figures. The two-pack features a 5.5 inch Covert Agent Ravage figure that transformed from robot to beast mode (specifically a jaguar), but also includes a 1.5-inch Micromaster version of Ravage that transforms from jaguar into mini cassette mode, but it gets even better thanks to a new HasLab tease.

    As you can see in the image, on the next slide, Hasbro is teasing its newest HasLab project, which follows the impressive Unicron project that brought in 8,000 backers to bring that project to life. Unicron was shipped out in April of this year, and now Hasbro hopes to follow that up with another dream product for fans. Hasbro says HasLab is the place to awaken another unique project along those lines, and the teaser image, which is in Japanese, hints at a new Transformers HasLab announcement coming soon. So, what do you think it is?

    You can check out Agent Ravage up-close starting on the next slide, and you can find all the official details in the description below.

    Transformers: Generations War for Cybertron Deluxe Covert Agent Ravage and Micromaster Decepticons Forever Ravage - (Ages 8 and Up / Approx. Retail Price: $44.99 / Available: November 1, 2021)

    "Decepticons forever! In celebration of 25 years of the iconic Beast Wars: Transformers animated series, fans can add this 2-pack to their collection, featuring the classic Predacon/Decepticon jaguar, Ravage! Ravage may have been reformatted into a Predacon, but after watching a secret message from his long-dead Decepticon leader, he realizes where his allegiances lie. This pack is inspired by the scene where Ravage joins the Predacons, converts into his former mini cassette mode and leaps into the Transwarp Cruiser’s tape recorder. This pack includes a 5.5-inch Deluxe COVERT AGENT RAVAGE figure that converts from robot to jaguar mode in 20 steps and a 1.5-inch Micromaster DECEPTICONS FOREVER RAVAGE figure that converts from jaguar to mini cassette mode in 4 steps. Pose out with 2 pistol weapon accessories and 2 blast effects and decorate DECEPTICONS FOREVER RAVAGE in cassette mode with the included G1-inspired stickers. Remake the classic Beast Wars: Transformers scene with package art inspired by the command deck of the Transwarp Cruiser that Ravage captains. Available exclusively on Hasbro Pulse in the US, Canada & UK in Fall 2021."

    Pulse Con will hit later this fall, and Covert Agent Ravage will be available on November 1st.”
