ExVee looks at a Bulkhead by any other name with Generations Series Hound from Age of Extinction. The guns may be the biggest selling point, but the figure's only serious problem is needing more deco. Watch the review!

It was a good time to be a Transformer fan and the combination of multi-marketing blitz and fan hyper-activity made 2007 a good year. Read on for the full review - SPOILERS AHEAD.

We don't want to drop any spoilers here, but as you can expect it was what we can expect from a Micheal Bay film. That is good news for some, bad news for others.

When does a figure almost completely take a back seat to the accessories it comes with? It happens, and Hound may be one of those cases. In this review, see why an arsenal of weapons might be the real selling point, and why over half of the photos focus on just the accessories! Plus ExVee talks about the very obvious true identity of this toy. Silly marketing departments. Continue to the review!

Another movie, another classic character name reuse that has no connection with its origins. Or at least, not in the typical sense. I have my own speculation on the origins of this Galvatron which I'll keep to myself, but might actually make the name applicable beyond trying to catch people with another semi-recognizable name. I'll talk more on the process of naming movie characters when I get to Hound. Read the full review!

I remember many movies ago when the idea of Dinobots was not exactly met with favor by Michael Bay. But hey, you get to your fourth and maybe you wanna change things up a little. Dinobots are not the only thing that's changed, but it's the bigger thing everybody points at for this movie and probably rightly so. I mean, you have a semi truck riding a dinosaur. How can you not love the imagery right there? Read the full review!
And now, the first of the movie Dinobots is up for review. Slug is still a Triceratops, but of course everything else is new. How has he fared with the transition to the movie style? How are the soft plastic swords? What's up with the pointy shoes? All these questions and more in the full review!
