    #Transformers 2021 will Light Our Darkest Hour!

    Sure, 2020 was full of bad news & societal calamity. Yet in the midst of everything that’s going on, I predict this year ahead will prove to be Transformers greatest of all time.

    Particularly if you’re a long-time fan/collector, like us. It’s pretty incredible to consider where as a franchise things have been, and where we are, right now.

    Another longtime fan/collector/friend, turned voice actor for Starscream in #Netflix #WarForCybertron Starscream ... Frank Todaro wrote:

    “Man. Do you ever pause and try to take it all in? Picture where we were in this hobby so many years ago. Beast Wars dwindling, Beast Machines starting to ramp up, Car Robots and Armada putting notions of some golden age of G1 one day with super poseable accuracy. The mind-blowing ball joints of Cyberjets, the occasional homages like Downshift, re-imagining of Binaltech and now, here we are, with everything we ever wanted. ... Just crazy. Never lost on me...”

    Ah mean - wow, he is right! We’re only a couple weeks into the year and we’ve got LEADER Class Dinobot(s) in-coming! Grimlock, based on his designs in 1986 Transformers the Movie! To say nothing of putting Voyager Class Kingdom Cyclonus next to Studio Series Voyager Scourge! The design esthetic is everything I could ever ask for. The transformation is JUST RIGHT (!) level of difficulty, smartly designed, sturdy, rocker-ankles, rotating wrists turning head/neck pose—ability. You can find a few things to nitpick here, but to me, these toys are damn near perfect!

    If you’re a fan of #BeastWars (like us!), have you found Kingdom toys yet? They are incredible! Show-accurate robot modes, with a little more lifelike beast modes. The transformations are similarly just right level of difficulty. Put Voyager Optimus Primal in a cool battle pose next to Leader Class Megatron and tell me that doesn’t get you fired up! I also cannot help but compare the 2019 Masterpiece Blackarachnia to the $20 Deluxe toy hitting store shelves right now. The robot mode MP is unquestioningly gorgeous, the spider mode: not so much and transforming it back and forth? Take me an hour and frankly, I lose interest. It’s pretty - but not a great toy. Compare that to the 2021 mass release Blackarachnia toy. She is gorgeous in robot modes, the tranformation is FUN! And even the spider mode look damn near perfect. Let’s all tip our hats to the @Hasbro and @TAKARATOMY designers who somehow made a $20 Deluxe toy, better than a ~$150 “Masterpiece.” I don’t know how they did it, but THANK YOU - and bravo!

    If the *unconfirmed rumors are to believed, we may get a Titan sized figure of the G1 Ark later this year. This super iconic vehicle was featured heavily in the early days of G1 (jeez, you saw it in virtually every episode!), in Beast Wars and now the modern series on Netflix. While there has never been a decent G1 Ark toy before - this would, amazingly be the first!

    OH and on top of all that - 2021 will see the release of the mind-blowing $600+ HASLAB UNICRON! The actual release!!! As in, this thing is just going to show up on our doorstep, could be - ANY DAY NOW! ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ !!!!!

    Look, I know all things must come to an end. The magic of this incredible year of toys cannot last forever. But for me as we sit in the early days of January, I need to take stock of all this and enjoy the anticipation and joy what’s to come in this crazy year ahead!

    Fun with Gigawatt! I sure am glad that I'm not one of those people who paid $1985 dollars for one of the early preorders especially considering that Gigawatt has been restocked at many retailers and has been showing up in Walmart. Gigawatt pairs nicely with Vector Prime.

    “Refraktor 3-Pack” The Reflector Trio: Spectro, Spyglass & Viewfinder

    Very cool that these three recently had such a prominent moment in the story spotlight, during the second chapter of the War For Cybertron trilogy on Netflix. Afterall, the G1 cartoon often included many multiples of the Reflector clones, filling out the Decepticon ranks. Since this series features quite a few recolor/troop builders anyway - it certainly should include these three as well!

    This set is based on the original toy - the decos, and accessories offer a more authentic Earth-mode camera. You may recall the original was sold as a mail-order only exclusive, requiring the use of “Robot Points” cut-out from the packaging of other Transformers! Those were the days!

    Today the latest version includes modern day sculpting, articulation and pose-ability and camera tripod accessories help them each transform into a Cybertronian ship mode.

    Yea, I know - this set isn’t exactly brand new anymore. There are just so many great toys from this series, it’s hard to keep up!

    #Netflix Deco Cheetor, “Sparkless” Barricade, Rusty Ironhide (a Quintesson!?) and Crystal (?) Paleotrex - Images leaking across Chinese social media/Weibo (original source unknown) give us a glimpse of upcoming figures to come!

    FWIW, I absolutely dig the new color scheme for Cheetor! Bring on the multi-colored eye-variants, just like in the mid-90s!

    Rumor has it, the next @Takara #Transformers Masterpiece will be a MP Starscream v2.0 deco’d as Thundercracker. Not too surprising. What do you think?

    Source: Unknown. Photo circulating around Chinese social media (Weibo). At this time we do not have official confirmation via Takara site, so it remains unconfirmed - but seems fairly likely.

    What do you get when you combine the components of 3 Paleotrex figures? Whatever your imagination can come up with, that is one of the most fun aspects about these new Fossilizer figures.

    WFC-K Deluxe Class Paleotrex

    One of the most fun and exciting aspects of the Fossilizers is their ability to be customized to fit your own imagination and personal tastes, you can mix and match limbs, arrange the pieces in a plethora of different combinations or combine them together into something that only you can create, something new and unique. A very fun concept indeed and prime for army building. My son loves taking him apart and putting him back together in different ways and loves playing paleontologist with it in the backyard, digging up fossils and making the skeleton. Have you managed to find any Fossilizers yet? They should be in stores soon if not already.
