Not only am I plastic crack collector, I play video games. Of course I pre-ordered Fall of Cybertron for the PS3. I have all three gaming systems and usually play the PS3 most of the time. I think overall, it's better graphics and gameplay. You can argue with me all you want that Xbox is this and that. There is a reason why I have the other two systems Wii for Zelda series, and Xbox for Halo/Gears of War series. Anyways, I got an email Friday telling me that I have a code to play the demo 5 days before it's released to the public. WOW!! It was amazing! You play the part of Bumblebee saving the Ark from the Decepticons destroying it. Towards the end of the demo, you see Megatron and Optimus fighting one another and they end it right there! It was awesome! I can't wait for the full version to come out!
Marvel Comics decided in 1986 to make a four-issue limited series of G.I. Joe and the Transformers. Basically, it's the Autobots, G.I. Joe, Cobra and the Decepticons fighting for control of a Power station called Alpha (a mobile nuclear power plant that can beam energy across the globe). But Shockwave has other plans for the station using it to destroy Earth.
Insufficient amounts is referenced to the main series of the original comics.
So Bumblebee dies and comes back becoming Goldbug. Dirge gets blown up to bits when turned on against by Serpentor. Ha! Bad guys just never can be trusted even when allied! Optimus Prime and Megatron are both killed off in the series. Poor Blaster was upset...Last but not least Serpentor replaces Cobra Commander.
Overall, a collection that I must have only because it's the first time that Transformers and G.I. Joe have crossed over. Story-wise....nothing that great!
Here I have the IDW's Transformers Spotlight issues. I started to put them up on my walls. I don't have the entire collection.....yet. I'm currently working on it. It's something else to add to the room besides a bunch of robots posed. Up next will be the Marvel Transformers comics. I need to find room for the 1st 40 issues. After that I have to make sure I have room for the last 40 that I am currently working on it. That will be a while until they hit the walls.
So the series of spotlight's are consisted of single issued stories in G1 fictional universe. Each story is featuring an individual character.
From what I know the stories from each character are based off previous comics and all relate to one another as some point. The entire collections consists of:
I finally got him transformed! He took a little while because of how gentle his plastic is. Overall, he is amazing! I love the entire mold from robot to alternate. Awesome detail. Perfect color scheme. He has a real chain that attaches from him back to his arm as all shockwaves do Now I just need some decepticon stickers on him to make him official. My set up for taking pics is not working correctly right now. As son as I get that fixed and working again, I'll have much clearer and better pics of him in all different angles/transformations.
KM-03 Knight Morpher Cyclops (Shockwave) with Bonus Mini Sub appeared on my doorstep yesterday! I walk into the house and my girlfriend says I have a package. Totally forgot and didn't realize that he had shipped already. I looked at the box and it was weird shaped. Opened it up and the box is long and narrow...I take him out and was shocked (no pun intended lol) of the size of him! He is about 15" long and a good 4" in height! He has some weight to him toooo! WOW! I couldn't believe it. I own Night Morpher Optimus and he is nothing like Shockwave. This is what I have for pics for now. I started to transform him but was having a hard time. I'm afraid to pull and push, the plastic is a little on the thinner side than Hasbro and Takara's toys. I'll have pics of him in robot mode shortly, but for now here is a sneak peek.
Me? I'm a Transformaniac through and through. I've been collecting for over 20 years and my collection is starting to outgrow "The Vault"! I collect, maintain and refurbish my Transformers and I am always looking for new (and old) ones to add to my 900+ plus collection. Feel free to check out my collection, as it's ever-growing and I'll be updating my blog with new Transformers as soon as I get them.
