Titans Return Astrotrain has pulled into the station…er, spaceport.  A repaint/remold of Sentinel Prime, for me he was the version of this mold I have really been waiting for since his reveal.  I’m going to keep this post short as well, but there are a few things I want to note.  Check out the gallery to find out!

I love Decepticons (and Predacons). I love all shades of purple. Legends Galvatron, for me, really should be one of those “chocolate in the peanut butter” type of moments.  Did he make the cut?

From the moment that he was announced, Fortress Maximus has been the top priority for my collection. The G1 figure was one of those holy grail characters that I only recently acquired in the form of the reissue, and getting an updated version was an absolute dream come true… and a dream that never seemed to arrive fast enough. Now […]

As I wait for what seems like it an eternity for Fortress Maximus to arrive, I decided to address the Titans Return Wave 1 deluxes. At this moment they are likely arriving at a toy store near you.

I can’t count the number of times I have looked forward to getting a mold and once I’ve had it in my hands, decided that it was not what it appeared to be in the pictures online. The disappointment of spending hard earned money on plastic crack, just to have it turn out less than stellar is a sting many […]

Not much of a surprise but many online stores now have MP-32 Optimus Primal up for pre-order, including our sites sponsors.
