Revoltech Optimus Prime VS Megatron.

There are so many versions of Optimus prime and Megatron in the 23 years of Transformers history. G1 alone. Each artist/ designer/ sculptor has their own interpretation.

Revoltech took on Dreamwave's interpretation and made it thiers.
I have so much fun playing with them.
I decided that I should take more pictures of them
And I took so much pictures of them I decided to stitch them all together.

DC Direct 13" Superman Classic
Look, Its Lazerbeak! Its Starscream! No its Superman.
Yes, Superman. He is not a transformers and he shouldn't be in this blog.
And in fact I hardly buy any other toys other than Transformers. This is exceptional (Of cos this is not the first time) LOL.
On a trip to a local flea mart 3 weeks ago. I set my eyes on This Superman. My childhood hero.
There have been tonnes of Superman figures in the market, However, DC directly has been a little disappointing. The 2 Superman figures DC direct 13" ( i.e. Superman Return and Superman (with Clark Kent outfit) ust didn't have what it takes to convince me to . I missed out on HOT TOYS Superman return. Everyone has been saying that he looks really good. But I don't really think that he has the right figure to do Brandon Ruth justice.
I am really hoping that TAKARA has one in the making.
Until then I am really happy with DC Direct 13" inch Superman Classic. On first look at the cover. It does have a little resemblence with THE SUPERMAN Christopher Reeves. On closer look, his out fit looks great and he has the hunky figure to carry it.

The suite is really well made, stretchable and yet don't cause the joints to spring back. Allowing Superman to hold in the pose I want him to.

Up up and away....... Faster than a Speeding Bullet.
I am not good with words. Let the picts do the talking. DC direct Superman Classic, the superman all fans must get.

And till I find more time to play with my Superman. Enjoy the pics again LOL...

It's been a long time since I feel compelled to take pictures for my collection. Over the last few months Takara Tomy and Hasbro suddenly realise that they have been neglecting the Decepticons in the Binatech/ Alternator series, previously all the Decepticons releases are usually repaints with a new face/ head. I dont even bother to open them.

Soon after the release of Ravage, in just 1 month Rumble was released (End of Feb 07). Ever so compelled to open them I fight the temptation. Cause.. they dont have anyone to lead them.
Takara/Tomy never fail to satisfy the "needs" of their longing fans. Soon after the release of Masterpiece Starscream, picture of Megatron begin to surface. He is one masterpiece that every TF fans have been waiting for since MP Optimus prime. I am sure prime himself was feeling lonely.

It was a long foreplay. from MP-02 to MP-04, But the wait is well worth it.

I've read some reviews of MP megatron that aren't so positive. I do admit that some of the parts of megatron are sure to fall out. But I dont see how could be more ingenius way of designing this masterpiece. While I am not going to do a review on him ( with so many on the web already I am just going to post some pictures megarton and the rest of those that have been waiting for him.

Friends and Foe.

The fight that every fan has been waiting for. The MASTERPIECE VSX.


Optimus: Feels good Megatron? I would've waited an eternity for this.

Lets take a look at ravage. While he might be a little different from other Binatechs./ Alternators.
1. He doesnt transform into the robot mode.
2. In his alternate mode (Car) the front wheels doesnt swerve from left to right.
3. And there was already a previous incarnation of Ravage (retooled of Tracks)

Now to Rumble, he is shorter than the average binatech/Alternators. And the transformation is far simpler than any of those I have transformed. So is Ravage. Transfomation for both are pretty straightforward.
