Gee, hard to say considering how mediocre 2012's fare has been... Masterpiece Optimus Prime (though the hunt for him was a massive load of butthurt). None of the others really stand out to me. :/ Most of my more exciting acquisitions have been of toys that came out before 2012, like _finally_ fi... read more

I have to agree, 95% of the Prime line up are just exceptional figures. And to think I hated Prime when it first came out. Wheeljack changed my mind and then I started collecting at that point. Unfortunately, 2013 is starting to be a let down.

I'm surprised at all the votes for Dreadwing. He was a bit of a turd to me IMO. 2012 was a bit of a letdown for me and I'm losing interest in the figures, so I don't think I could muster up a list for myself.

MP Optimus Prime FE Prime Optimus FOC Soundwave + Laserbeak MP Optimus Prime is just awesome. His poseability really impressed me. I wouldn't say he's better than MP1 Optimus, but he ranks right up there with him. FE Optimus Prime always looked great in the promo pics and I was afraid ... read more

Vehicon is most certainly on top for me. It's among the closest thing there is to perfection in a main line deluxe figure and one that the fandom can mostly agree on which happens.....never!!! FOC Shockwave is another very solid deluxe figure and nice representation. Prime voyager ... read more

RID Vehicon, that mold just kicks ass, and along with Just Vehicon has retool and custom potential (I'm listing them together since it's essentially the same mold) Masterpiece Optimus Prime, the new mold shows that you can do better than "perfection" Masterpiece Thundercracker, I... read more

It's a good day for artistic endeavors by Transformers fans! Tonight we have a batch of photos to bring you from Alvaro Valdivieso Paredes, who's gone to Facebook posting his custom built Autobot starship Ark as seen in the G1 cartoon. Though this one might take some cues from the mild redesign it had for its appearance in Beast Wars rather than being strictly original-cartoon-derived. Though no distinct scale is given, seeing the real estate it occupies on tabletops helps give a sense of its bulk. While it may not be the biggest ever, it's no less impressive, and you can keep reading to see it in full!
It's certainly not a new thing - Transformers fans wanting to represent a favorite character can and do show remarkable talent in recreating robots in costume form. And so it was with Anthony Darkenstein (I so hope that's his real last name) who created a fantastic costume of G1 Galvatron to wear around the Calgary Expo that took place this weekend. This skillful effort was rewarded as he managed to turn heads not just at the show, but all over the internet as photos of him made their way around social media. We've collected a few of them, so keep reading to have a look for yourself!
30 years ago, you may have had a G1 Grimlock under your Christmas tree. But this July, Hallmark is offering the next-best thing: a G1 Grimlock in Dino Mode to hang on your Christmas tree! He'll run you $16 for a fairly compact, non-transforming Dinobot. Keep reading for more details!
An enterprising fan in China has apparently decided to take it upon himself to add a Metroplex of appropriate scale to help display his collection. We don't know the name of the builder (but if you do please let us know!) but these photos show some impressive building work, starting with a metal frame. One image even suggests it's designed to lay down for the battlestation/ship mode, though that's not depicted in the finished image. Despite being taller than a human, it seems this is still not quite big enough, being shown with Smallest Transformers. But it's still super impressive building! Keep reading to see the pictures!
The Hollywood Reporter has posted a story on the Hasbro Cinematic Universe writer's room, which will be getting underway shortly! It's headed, once again, by Akiva Goldsman (Batman & Robin, Batman Forever, The Da Vinci Code) with such noteworthy authors as Michael Chabon (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay) and Bryan K. Vaughan (Runaways, Saga). Keep reading for the full roster!
