The Titan’s Cannon

So, this week’s geeky purchase is Perfect Effect’s PC-14: The Titan’s Cannon. Or to put it simply, a giant laser gun for Fortress Maximus. Originally part of their “Warden” figure, the blaster is inspired by the accessory that came with the original G1 Fortress Maximus, now shipped separately and with a new adaptor piece so...

Titans Return. Or How My Wallet Learned to Hate Hasbro

So, a big part of my general Geekery remains Transformer collecting.  However, it was a hobby that had largely fallen by the wayside over the last decade aside from displaying the figures I already had.  The arrival of the movies led to a style in the toys I ended up not really caring for. If... Continue Reading →

Revenge of the Fallen

So, I've now seen the film twice.  Yes, I do love my giant transforming robots. I've seen both the normal and Imax version, and enjoyed it a lot.  In fact, the two things that annoyed me first time around (the twins and the length) grated a lot less on a second viewing.  Aside from the...

More Blackest Night Figures

IGN does it again.  This time an interview with the guys at DC Direct about the upcoming Blackest Night figures, including a look at the range, with many figures we hadn't seen.  Including a brand new Kyle figure 😀 I'm going to be so incredibly skint.  Loads of these look worth having.  Kyle and John...

DC Direct @ NYCC

I've just been looking at Action Figure Insider's DC Direct gallery from the NYCC. There's some really nice stuff there, including some nice close-up, hi-res pictures of the upcoming Blackest Night figures (well, minus the two "surprise" figures anyway).   They looked really nice in the preview shot we'd been, but these pictures are even better,...

My Giant Robot HAS Legs!

Well, that was easier than I thought. The local Woolies had clearly only just put out a new case, so I grabbed all the figures I was missing. And with the prices down to £4.50 each, and a 20% voucher they're currently giving out, it only cost me about a tenner. I must admit, I'm... Continue Reading →

My Giant Robot Has No Legs!

Grrrr. I hate these collect-a-figure things. Marvel Legends were famous for doing them. Basically, each figure in a wave would include a piece of a much larger figure, so by collecting every toy in the wave, you'd have all the bits to put together the final figure. As a result, I've got random bits of... Continue Reading →

City Commander

Some new pictures of the upcoming City Commander trailer for Classics Ultra Magnus can be seen here I can't afford it sadly, but its certainly drool-worthy, and hard to resist for a big Ultra Magnus fan like me. On a related note, I'm really loving the Universe Classics. Prowl and Sunstreaker have both been released... Continue Reading →

Megatron Rising

Well, we're just over the halfway mark now in Transformers: Animated. This is easily the best show since Robots in Disguise. While I enjoyed Cybertron, Armada was quite painful for most of its run (surprisingly since the plot was actually good - just badly executed with really annoying kid sidekicks) and Energon I just got...
