Nice to see the tower is still erect.

It's kind of surreal when I think about how small the Transformer's fandom was when I first joined here over 14 years ago. It was near impossible to find anything Transformer related outside of secondhand shops or comic book stores. Eventually, thanks to a lot of us, dedicated fans, a very large res...

Generation Arcee

Have these figures seen the day of light in retail? Is she only available online? I've found Brainstorm at TJ Max and Burlington Coat Factory. I still have run across Chromia also.

Bought a 3D TV!!!

I watched Alice in Wonderland 3D. It is unreal. It's just too bad you can't fully utilize the 3D feature unless you get a movie specifically made for 3D. It's pretty close to watching a movie in IMAX. I haven't tried to watch a normal bluray with the 3D feature yet. I saw Avatar in IMAX and it was a...

Been a while!

I wanted to see how everyone was doing and who was still here. I kind of forgot the address here though. It took me a couple of tries, but i found you guys. It's a little upsetting where you get directed when you miss the last "s" in transfans.

I have all the classics. I also most of the Henkei also. There is a huge diffence. The most significant is Sunsteaker. Hasbro barely paint him yellow. The yellow is thinly painted and the black windsheild taints the yellow. Takara most use a better quality paint because Sunstreaker's chest is a brig...

I got them both. I haven't opened them yet. Got them for $80 a piece. Dirge is pretty cool, but Thrust's a little disappointing. He isn't accurate. He is mostly a repaint of Starscream with a conehead. The wings were done all wrong. The only original piece molded are the tail fins. They also put the...

Omega did exist, maybe. I think Powermaster Prime had the Delorean. Omega had a Trans Am, I think. I was suppose to race it. I know he lived in Chicago. Doesn't Ryan from Seibertron, Astrotrain99 and Smooth all come from Chicago? Hmmm, I wonder.

For the five seconds they actually used, it was a lot of work. I filmed from 5am to 11am. But it was all worth it. It had a great message. Here is another video of me. I'm featured in the first clip. I'm the one doind the bad flip kick.
