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.

On a related note, I'm really loving the Universe Classics. Prowl and Sunstreaker have both been released... Continue Reading →
I'm a sucker for buying new games for my mobile phone, and so I was pleasantly surprised this week when I checked the New Games section, and found a G1 Transformers game available.
