May 2012 update

TRANSFORMERS PRIME CYBERVERSE ARCEE & VEHICON
I've been giving Prime/new RID a miss but theres some characters/designs that i've been interested in. Prime Arcee is an angsty version of the character and Steve here is cannon fodder in the show. The deluxe version of the Vehicon is damn hard to find.

TRANSFORMERS BOT SHOTS OPTIMUS, MEGATRON, BUMBLEBEE, STARSCREAM, BARRICADE, MIRAGE, ACID STORM, NEMESIS
A new line combining chibi design, auto transforming and rock-paper-scissors game where you select weapon by switching the chest panel, then colliding 2 figures head-on to trigger the transformation to reveal power level...it sounds more retarded when i try to explain it. But its kind of fun. Theres even this online game thingie which i havent bothered with.

I usually dislike black repaints but Nemesis is pretty nifty and Acid Storms weed culture reference is too hilarious to have been unintentional. Well played, Hasbro intern.

THUNDERCATS CLASSICS 8" LION-O
Loved the Thundercats as a kid but being a bigger MOTU fan i didnt own much in the way of merch. This is one of the rare Bandai based toys i own and i gotta say they really know how to make non-robit action figures. Brb making Lion-o spy Cheetara in the shower using Eye of Thundera: HOOOOOO
