  1. Probably small news with Botcon 2014 going on, but here it is.

     

    If you find the TF: Age of Extinction add in your Xbox (360 in my case) dashboard, firs you get a movie trailer, but after you watch it you are able to download a movie Grimlock prop for your avatar. It consists of a T-Rex with a movie skin, it's larger than the avatar, it walks around and spits fire once while your avatar tries to stay out of the way. It's a shame the avatar doesn't ride him, since mine still has the Optimus Prime outfit from Fall of Cybertron.

     

    You can also watch two other trailers, some still images from the movie and there's a sweepstakes you can enter but it requires you to play Titanfall.

    Edit: Took a few pictures, here are the best ones.

  3. I went to Target today, 4/28/14, and went by the toy section not really expecting to see anything new on the Transformers section, with the TF4 toys coming out soon and all, hopping to at least find wave 4 of the Kre-O individual packs (no luck). They did have a couple of Generation Whirls though.

     

    What I did find was that all the TF Prime Beast Hunter toys were on clearance. Legion (they actually had all 4 individual limbs for Abominus), Deluxe and Dragon Assault Optimus where 30% off, while Voyager Darksteel & the Abominus pack where 50% off. Also a few of the Construct-bots had the 30% off, but it didn't seem like all of them did.

     

    I'm sure Target is just making room for the movie toys, which is ok, to bad they didn't have a better selection of Beast Hunter toys though. If they drop them to 70%, I might even stock on birthday presents for my nephews.

     

    So if you where still thinking of that Abominus, or maybe making a Legion army, or just needed a good price to go for those Predacon Rising repaints, here's your chance! Happy hunting!

  4. Well, I just came back from Target, and Deluxes, although not much, went up from 14.99 to 15.49. And that was just on the regular Prime figures, they didn't have any Generations.

     

    If that's just Target raising price to then put discounts, I can live with it and just wait until after Christmas. But if it's Hasbro rasing prices, well, that's goodbye for me buying for my collection, for my son and for my nephews' (and I have plenty) birthdays and Christmas.

     

    So, with me, they loose about 3 customers, plus no more recomending the toys to other people (which I do a lot).

     

     

    And if we add it up to Michael Bay on TF4 (I refuse to give one more cent to him, don't car if it's TF). It sure looks like they are trying to push away fans and collectors.

  5. I was posting in another tread, and made this quick mock up to illustrate a point. I decided to share it here to give the idea to either the customizers who do such great work and share it here, or to Hasbro.

     

     

    Either way, this is Generations Springer's body (redeco of DOTM Tamahawk) with Fall of Cyberton Shockwave's head.

     

     

    I believe that in the right colors, it would be a great Whirl.

     

     

    Enjoy!

  6. I got today from TRU the new Generations Springer. And as I had it in robot mode in my hands I couldn't help but thing that that head just didn't sit right in that body, lake a crapy head transplant.

     

    Than it hit me, that body would be great to make Whirl, you could even just replace with FOC Shockwave's head and repaint the whole thing. (Hint for Hasbro and customizers in this site)

     

    So I took a couple of minutres (since I'm short on time) and did this montage.

  7. Arrived in the mail today, Tuesday June 8th.

    -Transformers Generations: Cybertronian Optimus Prime

    -Transformers Generations: Cybertronian Bumblebee

    As for the quality... The boxes are in great condition, no shelf wear and not full of tape on the back like you get when you buy in retail sotres; the paint-job, as fas as I can tell without opening them (yet), couldn't be better.

    As an extra detail to be noted, they are tied with the new twistie-ties that look made out of fabric.

  8. Went out camping, and decided to take a couple of my TFs with me and try some shots, I think this where the best ones.

    With that face, he makes me thinks he´s related to Animated Wasp.

     

    Optics, I hereby order my armored Prime to return to his docking bay in surrender to your sweet Matrix upgrades! smiletf.gif

    I still want to thank you for the great inspiration on the parts - great ideas!

     

    Well, it´s a good oportunity for him to upgrade again!

  10. I took this pictures at the mall, kind of as a test, see if I could make it look as if Optimus was there. What do you all think? How does it look?
