Bludgeon was weak? he was a decepticon, but he was also honorable, a very non-evil trait.


Honor? Honor has no place in the Decepticon ranks! You gots to be a bad mofo, dammit!

'Nuff Said


I MUST get that. Transformers and Coke, two great tastes that taste great together!


I'm so anti-Astrotrain. How the hell can he fit all the Decepticons inside his space shuttle? It just doesn't make sense - plus he's an evil decepticon. I hate him so much.


It's called Mass Shifting. Just like how Soundwave could turn from a human sized cassette player to a giant robot. Actually, I don't know how it stands now, but the people in charge of the new TF movie thought Mass Shifting was stupid, and as such Soundwave would NOT be a tape player. If the concept CG scene I saw stays true, he is now a helicopter.

Have no fear our fair Cheapy, there shall be a Live Action Transformers movie coming out in 2007.

To be fair, there already was a Pepsi Prime, this is just a homage to the original.

Last I heard, they're actually entertaining some extent of mass shifting now in the new movie, but that remains to be seen.

Don Murphy is the movie's director and as well, he's also a fan of the community, therefore little details are leaked.

- Confirmation that there is some mass/volume shifting in the current script but not a lot.
- Arcee is still in the script, but does not appear a lot.
- When asked if things are still OK for a 7/4/07 release, Don responds "stay on target".
- "deals are still being worked out" for most of the alternate modes, so what is in the script now may be subject to change.
- When asked about how far off the casting process is, and if he's discussed this with Michael Bay, Mr. Murphy said "BUDGET is next, it will be a big discussion BUDGET"
- Assurance that "Michael WANTS to make the film." - In response to a question about Michael Bay's level of enthusiasm for the movie.
- And a hint that Don hopes to see furture Transformers Movies after this one, "Suffice it to say, I still believe that this film is gonna be the first of many, many cool Transformers films."

Has anyone bought any of the new Cybertron toys? I got one for a gift for someone (Vector Prime, I think). It seemed like they put a lot of work into making it.

Still love the alternators, though they're hard to find. Except for Swindle and Battle Ravage, of course.

I've got all of them so far, except for the repainted minicons (I love minicons, but can't justify buying the umteenth repaints of em). If you liked Vector Prime, then you'll love the line. VP is imho one of the worst. I buy them because I love the engineering/puzzle solving involved in the transformation, and VP is as simple as you can get.

I'd definitely say Cybertron is the best main line since Robots in Disguise, though Energon had a couple great figures too. Check out the Galaxy Force (japanese Cybertron) episodes though, much better than Cybertron.


Oh, and I have all the Alternators released thus far, displayed nicely on an old grocery store display so it looks like a parking garage.

I've got Vector Prime, Megatron, Optimus Prime and Sideways. I also got the minicons and small megatron and starscream. Overall I'd say their quality is top-notch, but I'm still waiting for the 10th anniversary Beast Wars.

So what do you guys do with these toys? Do you play with them? I like Transformers and everything but I don't understand the point of owning any. Plus, knowing that asshole Astrotrain is out there somewhere really pisses me off. Eff you Astrotrain.

I do, whenever I need a nostalgic feeling, but generally I just let them adorn my room.

You really have something against Astrotrain don't you? Did you have a traumatic experience when you were little?

I occasionally go through my collection and transform them all. Not actually "playing" with them per say. I treat them as essentially puzzles, like chinese puzzle boxes. That's why I loved Car Robots (RID in America), cuz most of the figures were extremely complex, and fun to figure out. Instructions are for lamers!

Speaking of instructions are for losers, have you tried transforming the Nemesis Prime from Transformers: Universe? The Black Mammoth one? Several people I read about said that it was a pain in the arse to transform, but it was a cynch for me. Just checking to see if you had the same trouble or what.

I was never able to track that down at Target (exclusive I think?), but I did import the Japanese Big Convoy, which to my knowledge is the same thing. I had no problems at all, except I can't find any good ways to hide all the kibble left over. Friggin Mammoth pieces everywhere.

Friggin Takara making Hasbro make that Prime instead of Trailbreaker, or somebody else that should be a truck. We already have Masterpiece Prime, why a (imho crappy) new one? I saw a sweet digibash of this guy in black with a cover added to make it Trailbreaker though, that was pretty sweet.
