You got it. Sucks being cheap labor.

Thanks, Notty. Where have I been? Working. I'm a contractor and technically, I'm only supposed to work 40 hours a week; however, I have to bring my computer home every night from work and sort emails for the projects that I'm working just to keep them straight in my head. The job is better than unem...

5. Nemesis Prime with the armor and soon, his two, little buddies that turn into guns. So much fun centered around one figure. 4. 2007 Movie Ironhide. Just turn the head around and you have Trailbreaker. Works for me! 3. Classics Devastator. The only original Energon gestalt model I actually liked a...

Latest acquisitions for me is the Ghostbusters game for PC and Transformers: War for Cybertron for PC. Both are solid games and loads of fun. I also put down my payment for Starcraft II and Civilization V.

Newest acquisitions for me are fairly lengthy since I finally got a job, I did a wee bit of a splurge (I was happy, alright?): The Warbot a.k.a. Springer The Rumble and Frenzy gun customs that are non-Hasbro Shadow Warrior 2007 Movie Ironhide to replace the one that broke. Movie Hoist Movie Mixmaste...

Crazy Devy is making much larger wings for Predaking. If anybody wants to shell out the money for an already expensive figure, go for it.

Peter Cullen Interview by Techland

An interview with Peter Cullen needs no introduction. He's the man behind the iconic voice of the leader of the Autobots that many of us grew up with in the 80s. With the recent resurgence of Transformers hysteria due to Michael Bay's live-action adaptations, Peter Cullen has been hard at work on t...

It's a rarity for me to buy games at any time and even rarer to buy multiple games at one time unless it's for a gift. That said, today, I bought the "Ghostbusters" game for the PC and "Transformers: War for Cybertron" for the PC. I also reserved Starcraft II and Civilization V. I'm really looking f...

Here's one that I haven't watched until recently -- Avatar: The Last Airbender. It was surprisingly good and pretty humorous in places. It had a very nice storyline and it didn't drag-on. It only went for 3 seasons but I think that was planned. Mako's performance as General Iro was good up until he ...

The Mythbusters really are the highlight of these video songs. Adam setting Jamie's sleeve on fire and then Jamie cooking Adam in the next video was quite funny. I'm surprised that Optimus Prime showed up in these. Is there something going on between Hasbro and Discovery? I seem to recall some kind ...
