Takara Transformers Masterpiece MP-25 Tracks

masterpiecetracksrobotOne of my favorite G1 Aubotcars was Tracks since it transform into a plane mode and fly.  Now Takara has made a Transformers Masterpiece version and it looks sweet.  Tracks in robot mode looks like his G1 cartoon days and transforms into the iconic 1970’s Chevy Corvette Stingray.  Tracks can transform into his classic G1 flight-mode.  The Masterpiece figure also comes with other extras, like a flight display stand, Raoul figure and Blaster in boombox mode.

2015 is Year of Transformers Combiner Wars

transformerscombinerwarsWith the G.I. Joe toy-line not making an appearance at this year’s Toy Fair, who knows what Hasbro is planning for this long toy franchise.  Though they have announced they’ve hired a new Brand Manager Mark Weber for the G.I. Joe toy-line.  Well, at least Hasbro got the Transformers toy-line correct and this year should be outstanding again.  The theme for 2015 is Combiner Wars.  Many of the first waves have hit retail brick and mortar stores now.

The Loyal Subjects x Transformers Wave 3

laserbeakI remember buying The Loyal Subjects (TLS) x Transformers Wave 1 blindboxes, because I’m a sucker for anything G1 Transformers related.  The vinyl figures were decent and it looked cute.  Since the 2013 Wave 1 release, TLS have upped the ante with their Wave 2 release with more points of articulation, accessories, sounds and lights.  Now with this Transformers Wave 3 released the vinyl figures move a little like action figures and have cooler signature weapons related to the character.  Some figures have light up LEDs or sound effects.

A $5O Pen! But it Transforms.

optimusprimepenCan I sell you a pen that cost over $50.00USD and holds not too much ink?  Well, you will buy it if you’re a Transformers and G1 Optimus Prime fan.  Produced by Sentinel Toys, this is Optimus Prime Convoy pen!  In robot mode, the action figure looks close to the classic G1 cartoon series and has good articulation.  After you’re finishing playing with it and you need to do some homework, you can transform it into a pen.

lanciawheeljackrobotThis is a definite must-buy for G1 Transformers fans – the Masterpiece MP-20 Wheeljack.  Like all of the Masterpiece series the robot modes and articulation is great, but this car mode looks sweet as Wheeljack is based on the Lancia Stratos Turbo 5 rally car.

Custom LEGO Transformers: Ironhide & Ratchet

transformers 00The Transformers G1 Ironhide and Ratchet were always cool toys but the transformation from car to robot mode never looked right.  Then a few years ago, iGear produced very accurate G1 Ironhide and Ratchet lookalikes from the cartoon series, but they were tad expensive for knock-offs.

Fatlace x Transformers = The 2nd Drop

This past weekend, Fatlace released Drop 2 of this Transformers graphic tee collection.  I really like how they use the classic Transformers G1 line in shirt designs.  You can drop by Illest SF or LA retail stores, but my brother said it’s better to just buy it online at Fatlace since the stores sometimes carry a limited selection.  You maybe dropping a dime on these but it’s well worth it.
