One of my favorite Transformers figures from last year was the Revenge of the Fallen Lockdown. So when Hasbro announced they would be reusing that body for the Hunt for the Decepticons Axor figure, he definitely joined my buying list. The only problem was I just couldn’t seem to find him anywhere.
If you’re a Transformers fan, one thing you can always count on is the inevitable repaint figure. Even in lines as small as the War for Cybertron, Hasbro’s able to squeeze at least one in. So to wrap up our coverage of the War for Cybertron figures, here’s my review of Cliffjumper.
The year is almost over and you wouldn’t believe how many Transformer’s the IAT crew have sitting around, still waiting to be reviewed. I blame Matty and the torrent of DC Universe Classics they’ve unleashed upon us in the last couple months. Anyways, we’re finishing up our War for Cybertron reviews with Megatron.
Well, my long search is at an end. After months of making the rounds between my local Wal-Marts, Toys R Us, and Target, I finally found a Transformers: War for Cybertron Soundwave. It’s been a very long time since I’ve had to hunt for a figure that hard, but lucky for me, I think it was worth it.
I got into Transformers Animated so late that the only releases I've "waited for" have been the 4 recent Toys R Us exclusive figures (& some unreleased items). I haven't gone back and gotten "them all", but I've picked up my favorite characters. And when it comes to favorites, that certainly includes Rodimus Minor.
I don't really have a Transformers budget, but I try to keep an eye on the franchise. I was hooked as a kid and there are certain characters I just have to buy when they get a new version, a redeco, or a reissue. But an e-mail from reader Jason L. reminded of one favorite character that I've never had as a toy: Kup.
A couple weeks ago I reviewed the new War for Cybertron Optimus Prime. I had bought Bumblebee with him and meant to review him the next week. My intentions, and attention, got subverted by other toys though, but now I’ve returned to Mr. Bee before he becomes entirely obsolete.
