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

More Generation 1 News
Yesterday's spotlight on Grimlock wasn't the end of coverage for the Dinobot commander, today the Transformers Game Facebook page has their own regular gameplay demo video posted, showing some stages and attacks not present in the "cinematic trailer" yesterday. We have screenshots and an embed for that, plus a collection of several lineart pieces for Soundwave, the cassettes, and Megatron's tank mode. Keep reading to see it all!
If you're of the age that you remember buying or at least receiving Transformers when G1 was fresh on the shelves, you probably remember the littler rubbery Decoys coming with. Takara apparently does, as they're reviving the concept, though these won't be packaged with regular toys. The Transformers Figure Collection will be released in capsule machines in Japan starting in January, reportedly for under 100 Yen. The lineup currently consists of just 8 Autobot characters, but maybe more will follow down the line. Click though to take a look!
With less than a week before the game is released, the Transformers Game Facebook is still hyping it up with teaser content. They've just posted the bio for Grimlock going over the basic personality and moves available in game. And along with that, Gamestop's Youtube channel has posted a "cinematic trailer" spotlighting Grimlock, with lots of samples of Gregg Berger's voicework for the character. As usual you can click through for the video embed and screencaps, plus the bio sheet!
Next week, IDW is headed back to New York Comic Con and bringing a host of captivating panels, talented signings, and essential exclusives with it! Located at booth #1844, IDW and Top Shelf will be your destination throughout the weekend! Transformers fans can catch up with Andrew Griffith, Corin Howell, Livio Ramondelli, and John Barber among other great IDW properties. Read on for the full details!
As expected, Transformers Game on Facebook has posted a video showing off the moves you can expect to face down in the Soundwave boss battle. Among Soundwave's array of attacks is calling upon Ravage and Laserbeak to help out, though Ravage doesn't show very prominently in this video. The video also highlights rather well the incomplete voice filtering, as despite being vocoded, Soundwave comes across rather soft and smooth. Not exactly fitting to what the cartoon taught us to expect. We of course have a number of screencaps, plus the embedded video, so keep reading!
