Combiner Wars Generation 2 Superion Giftset Review

The 90's. An explosion of colour and noise wherever you looked. The dayglo physical intensity of the WWF. Happy hardcore. Glow Sticks. HAND SHARK!!! And in 1993 the Robots In Disguise of old met rave culture, got hammered on a great big bag of something frisky and smashed down the doors of your local toyshops, quite possibly looking for their mate Vera. This was a pie eyed comeback decked out in neon and stripes and animal print and while it tanked, it's also looked back upon with a sincere fondness like all your best worst nights out.

More Than Meets the Eye: Has the Lost Light Lost its Way?

Tarn talks people to death. Not that different from Swerve then.

When it began, More Than Meets the Eye seemingly went un-noticed by a lot of the fandom but as time went on it started carving out an increasingly influential niche for itself. The main Generations line of figures were starting to be influenced both in releases and appearances by the unusual quirky comic but then Dark Cybertron happened and gradually many readers have this feeling they can't quite put their finger on but it feels like the series has lost its teeth.

Masterpiece MP-28 Hot Rodimus Review


Hot Rod, Hot Rodimus, Rodimus Minor and just plain Rodimus are the names of the same character from Transformers history. From hereon in, I shall be referring to the character as Hot Rodimus.

Originally a generation one character from the 1986 movie, Hot Rodimus was one of the first figures to be released that were made especially for the Transformers toy line and not borrowed or licenced from elsewhere.
