Overhaul - Energon

Again, another show I didn't watch. Apparently at some point the transformers got their own planets. Heeyaawww, this guy was apparently from the jungle planet. They come with a thingy mcbob that as a symbol of their planet on it and when inserted into the slot, it unlocks a special this case..he fires his gun.

Even though this guy is one of the smaller toys, he's very well put together..has some nice weight to him and is very solid.

I like the claws on him..reminds me of wolverine of course.

He's pretty good for posing swell, although his arms do a little bow pose because of how he that's a little odd.

But overall, I like em.

Here is trying to tame the all mighty Mooseatron.

Thrust and Inferno - Transformers Armada

I have to admit, I've never watch any of the new cartoon shows..I may have seen a show here and their but for the most part..didn't watch it. Here is a variation on the old classic Thrust. The original was a Maroon colored jet. This guy is green and comes with a little mini-con that changes into a truck with missile.

They were suppose to combine to become more powerful or something like that in the show. Again..I never watched it, so I don' t know.

The color meh..I always like it when they keep a hint of color from the originals. Sometimes a new colors works..sometimes it doesn't. Here I don't think it does.

The jet form is pretty cool. I like the bulkiness of it, like a harrier jet I assume..the little truck can sit in the back of it. Without the truck, it looks really empty...not complete.

The figure itself..I guess there is where they went for the homage to the classic. They kept the classic coned shaped head. And that's all I really like about the robot form. I dislike that they didn't give him hands..instead he just has thrusters for hands. That blows...and the over all put togetherness of him is so cluttered and the bulkiness I liked in jet form..I dislike in robot form.

The missiles on his legs just get in the way..the giant (dong) like jet canopy between his legs is in the way, his wings can detach from his back and when you press a button, it spins. But its just so..its not well put together, it doesn't pose well at all. Everything gets in the way of everything else.

The robot form overall, I just don't like it. While the little Inferno guy...well, he's small and bulky and his transformation is down right simple. Not much to say about him really.

Here they are spying on the neighbors.

Soundwave - Animated

By far, probable one of the more popular characters in the franchise.I never watched the animated series, so I don't know how they portray any of the characters or anything like that. But from the design here, its always cool to see them keep that homage to the big bulky chest.

The Truck itself is pretty slick. He holds together really well when he is transformed.

His overall design, seems clunky, not the best pose able design, but just okay.

Laser beak I'm not too keen on. Too simple for my liking and looks way too big. A fun variation on the old classic for sure.

He seemed pretty excited here, that was until I lost all respect for him when I found out he was listen to Justin Beiber.

Cheetor - Beastwars

My first blog posting will be of Cheetor from the Beastwars series. This guy isn't from the original line, he is a re-release from a few years ago. But I don't care if they are originals or not, I just like transformers in general. I even take them out of the boxes, oh my!!

He transformation is pretty easy and its nice little piece, compact and its not too basic. I like em..I don't know if he follows the original design, but its a good one.

The cat formation is pretty ..well not well put together, the legs are really stiff looking, but hey, its not too bad.

Here he is, he wanted some peanut butter, I told him to to ahead if he can reach it.mmm, peanut butter.
