Transformers are way better than Gobots

Soundwave was the original letter page host. Followed by I think Blaster. Then Grimlock. With Dreadwing being the final host. I've probably got that totally wrong. 

I remember having to write a letter for English class once. Being a mad Transformers fan I decided to do it as if I was writing in to Grimlock. Warning him that he needed to be nicer or I'd have to apply my VVH type device to him. Only I didn't have a cool name like Variable Voltage Harness for it.  It was something crappy like Dinobot Hurtomoeter. The letter was read out by the English tutor. Not sure if I cringed more remembering the incident or during the reading.

You have. Blaster was last. After Soundwave for some reason Ratchet had one issue, then the very popular Grim Grams, then Dread Tidings, then Darn N Blast (with Blaster). Which broke kayfabe because he was dead by that point.

I tried to write a Christmas essay about Transformers in primary school but my teacher was no help at all. When I asked for help spelling, she thought it would be “Sibertron” and when marking my work deducted a mark because she assumed “Devastator” was a spelling mistake.

Had a blinding Xmas

Parents got a minty mint Takara Smokescreen from somewhere. Not a mark on it.

Watched the latest Netflix Earthrise, despite all of the promise, it was quite underwhelming and seems to be rehashing the movie, again. shame as there was some good bits, especially when there was some action around a planet that harks back to G1 and a welcome surprise and also the purge on cybertron was bleak as anything as well.

I didn’t know those retro TF Funko Pops existed. Damn, I’m tempted.

Nor did I

Wave 1 is Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, Soundwave and one other i think, Shockwave.

Re: Earthrise. The pacing is all over the shop, slow moving in parts and as soon as stuff really starts happening, it’s over. The repeated use of character models again is jarring. A group including Bumblebee and Wheeljack fighting a re-coloured Bumblebee and Wheeljack was pushing it enough, but Impactor’s design is far too distinctive to be recycled as a generic.

Spoiler removed because I forgot how to tag them.

I really liked Earthrise up until about half way through where it really lost me. I need to give it another watch but I just don't think it worked. Not really looking forward to Kingdom now because I don't have much interest in Beast Wars. Doesn't mean it won't be good but I doubt I'll get nearly as hyped for it.

Someone has taken some of Peter Cullens Optimus Prime lines from other shows and films and put them in the place of the voice actor on War For Cybertron.

Makes it sound so much better in my opinion.

If the IG link doesn't auto preview that is a sweet Transformers The Movie custom poster.

It is unreasonably annoying me that he's used the TargetMaster version of Hot Rod for some reason. And it's unreasonable, because that's a fantastic poster.

I've promised myself I won't delve into KO's but they do look cool.

Got this fella in the post today. My first new Prime since I was a kid. One of the few that I actually prefer the Kingdom box to the Earthrise box.
