Is the Transformers brand dying locally?

While I don’t think that there is any reason to worry too much about the Transformers brand dying on a larger scale, a trip to the local toy stores left me wondering if Transformers might be disappearing from stores in the near future. The prices of transformers toys have risen to an absurd level la...

Sorry that it took so long to get back to this. I asked one of the people who works in the local TRU why the transformers were suddenly so expensive and he even tried to check their computers for my memory of a lower price. Apparently the figures, in this case a generations deluxe, had been on sale ...

WTF Danish Transformers Prices?

I doubt anyone can help me with this, but I’ll give it a try anyways… I have been working most of the summer, and because of that haven’t been visiting the toy stores much lately, but I was quite surprised when I took a trip to the local TRU. All the transformers prices we insanely high all of the s...

That Spaniard helmets are actually about 15 years old, Warcry. It has just never been featured in any castle sets. They were used in some of the very last Pirates sets and were reused more recently in some of the Indiana Jones sets that were from the 4th movie. I really love the conquistador; I boug...

I have had a drivers license for a few years now, but I don’t have all that much actual driving experience due to lack of necessity.

I’m quite a fan of these collectable minifigures, I have actually succeeded at getting all of them including the Olympic ones. I like how they have a whole lot of new parts, and occasionally make figures that otherwise aren’t related to any existing themes.

It looks like you don’t have to worry anymore; the goal has apparently been reached.
I’m not all that much of a fan of He-man and the masters of the universe, but I do for some odd reason enjoy Pixel Dan’s video reviews of the figures.

[KITBASH] The Transformers #3 in LEGO

A LEGO site where I’m a member has a little contest about Superhero comic covers, and I thought it could be fun to try and make one.

Since my choice for this was a Transformers Comic I thought it was also relevant to post it here as well.

So… has anyone here seen some of the international versions of Top Gear? TV3+ where I watch Top Gear on has the English, the Australian and the American version. Admittedly I haven’t seen all that much of the Australian and the American versions. The Australian version is very similar to the British...

I saw the Bond special yesterday evening, and I have to say, that was a pretty good episode. Sorry if I spoil things from it. It was odd that only Hammond was in it, but I guess that helps give the special a more consistent tone. I always love seeing interviews with the people that were behind the s...

I have once heard that the reason for the lack of more ordinary stuff on the Top Gear TV show is that they moved those more practical aspects to the Top Gear Magazine instead. I haven't read the magazine, so I can't really confirm that statement. Then again, they do occasionally make jokes about the...

Well, I have to wait until the day after tomorrow for the Bond special, although it’s not all that surprising that something they made would end up being ambitious but rubbish. I have heard something about the hosts in general cartoonifying their personalities on the show, such as exaggerating the n...

Top Gear

With all the Brits and interest for British television I wondered if there were any fans of this poky little motoring show. Personally I’m quite fond of Top Gear and watch reruns on TV3+ it quite often. Admittedly it’s kind of stupid, but very entertaining. Also it can occasionally get a bit too fak...

That is one incredibly well-made Snapdragon. Even the proportions of the dragon mode are spot on.

The Legend of Korra

So…uh… has anyone else here been following the sequel series to Avatar the Last Airbender? The finale of the first season is next weekend, and I’m at least looking forward to it. I like the series quite a bit so far, pretty solid writing, good action and really pretty animation. The series has had m...

The first transformers I ever got was G1 Slingshot and G1.5 Falcon. Got them both and some purple butterfly knock off at a flea market during the last day of a vacation.

The first transformer I ever bought from a toy store was Beast Wars Scorponok.
