Transformers United Bruticus
& FansProject Colossus Review

One of the problems I keep running into lately is that I keep buying bigger & bigger toys. Toys too big for my “studio”, toys too big for just 6-8 pictures, toys that probably should get multiple reviews. I tend to put them aside when I’m choosing

iGear Mini-Warriors MW-01C
Chrome Spray Quick Review

I’ve got to head out of town (again) this week, so I’ve just got a quick review to finish of the week. I couldn’t find much in my toy room that would be a good fit for a quick look, but then the postman arrived with something

Transformers Encore
G1 Fortress Maximus Quick Pics!

This week’s schedule will be a little off. My Uncle passed away this weekend and I’m just about out the door on my way to Florida. As many of you know, this year has been sticking it to us here at IAT, but I’m tired of missing

FansProject DX Armored Battalion
Review (Holiday Edition)

The FansProject DX Armored Battalion Holiday Editions were on my radar for awhile, but I wasn’t sure I needed it in my collection. Mostly due to it being a set, I really wanted one, kinda of wanted another, and didn’t much care about the third. When

Transformers Masterpiece:
Frenzy & Buzzsaw Review (Part II)

In yesterday’s review, I covered Ravage and laid out the basics of what went into the Rumble & Frenzy mold. Today, I’ll take a look at Frenzy proper, the bevy of accessories that the figures come with and how they interact with Soundwave. Oh, and let’s

Transformers Masterpiece:
Rumble & Ravage Review (Part I)

If you’ve noticed lately, I’m buying a lot of Transformers, particularly ones that share molds. Those can be difficult to review because, other than paint, there can be a big “been there, done that” vibe. I’ve got an idea to combat that. Four Cassettes. Two Days.

Vault Review: TF Prime
Beast Hunters Hun-Gurrr

hngrTN

As fate would have it, a couple days after my Twinstrike review I stumbled across another Predacon on a trip to Walmart. So since I’m still having fun with the little guys, the next figure on the way to completing Abominus is

Fansproject Function-X1:
Code (not-Chromedome) Review

I’ve been buying a lot of Third Party Transformers, but I tend to not review them. Typically, I’ll do a MOTU or DC figure first if one’s available – but I’ve got to review some of these figures, particularly those from Fansproject – they’re piling up.

Vault Review: TF Prime Beast

twstTN

I’m not really planning on buying all the TF Prime Predacons, but the few that are out have interested me enough that I seem to be heading in that direction. So today I’ve got a little review for a little figure I

I remember a time when buying a Transformer was a rare occasion for me. But now things are heading towards the other extreme and I seem to always have a backlog waiting to be reviewed. So I thought I’d make a mini-theme

Tubes & M.A.N.A.T.E.E. Review

Did I miss a week or what? Some changes at work and a nasty bug kept me woefully away from my IAT duties last week. I’m still not quite back to 100%, but I have to get something posted before I go crazy. Today, ’ve got

Prime: Beast Hunters’ Ripclaw

ripcTN

I just found the second wave of Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters at my local Walmart. I passed on Smokescreen (for now), but decided to pickup another Predacon. Lucky for me, I’m much happier with Ripclaw than my two previous Predacon purchases.

Prime Frenzy & Rumble

When I ran across Rumble at my local Target a few months ago, I was pretty eager to pick him up. Unfortunately Hasbro hasn’t followed with his buddy Frenzy. I had to look towards Takara to complete the team, even though I

Soundwave Review (36 Pics!)

When I get into conversations with fellow collectors and regular readers, they’re often surprised to find about some of the “other” lines I collect. See, the truth is, I’ve been holding out on you guys. Some toys I collect never seem to find their way onto

Beast Hunters Lazerback

I was surprised to discover the new Transformers Prime Beast Hunters figures at my local Toys “R” Us already. After pushing aside the familiar yellow plague that is Bumblebee, my choice of which one to buy was made even easier by the

This week seems to be devoted to paint variants, so to go along with the trend I’m going to throw one more Starscream onto the pile. This time I’m taking a look at the BBTS exclusive Dark Energon version. This is a

4th Ann. Rager Review (MW-02G)

Yes, it’s another Transformers review. No, we’re not having a secret theme week. We’ll get to the big bad November Matty box starting next week, but sometimes you have to go where the fun is and for me, the fun has been with iGear’s Mini-Warriors this

As the end of the year draws closer, I find myself trying to catch up on some older reviews that I haven’t gotten around to yet. So in order to save a little time and hopefully fit more things into my schedule,

UFO Review (MW-04)

I had plenty of TFs as a kid, but my fondest memories are of the little guys. My (wonderful) parents were happy to oblige when I wanted a larger Transformer, but when their kid was easily placated by a smaller, less pricey one, they were smart

New York Comic Con 2012:
Armchair Coverage Round-Up

Another convention has come & gone and that means it’s time for a little Armchair Coverage here at IAT! I was away this weekend, but I came home & dived in to the news, taking some notes along the way. Some lines had big news

Vault Review: TF Prime Darkness
Megatron & Dark Matter Calibur

dmegTN

I’ve been falling behind on my Transformers Prime reviews over the last few weeks, so I thought I’d play a little catch-up and review two. Today I’ve got the monstrous Darkness Megatron and the equally intimidating Arms Micron Dark Matter Calibur sword.

Vault Review: Transformers
Fall of Cybertron Shockwave

swavTN

When it comes to Transformers, I’ve been mostly obsessed with the Prime figures (and their Arms Microns) ever since the First Editions started hitting. So I thought I’d be able to take a break with the return of the Generations, but Hasbro wasn’t about to release

Vault Review: Transformers
Prime Breakdown (AM-12)

Originally my plan was to write a review about the new TMNT figures I picked up at Toys R Us last week, but SDCC changed everything. With the disappointing follow up news to the Hasbro panel, I figured a review on Takara’s Transformers Prime

Vault Review: Transformers Prime Vehicon (Robots in Disguise)

I hope you guys aren’t getting tired of Transformers. I try to mix my reviews up a bit so that you don’t have to read about the same toy line constantly, but I also wanted to get this guy out of the

Vault Review: Transformers Prime Hot Shot

While hunting the Vehicon from Prime/Robots in Disguise’ third wave, I happened upon this Hot Shot figure at Walmart. I hadn’t planned on buying this figure. But when faced with a new toy during a run, sometimes the urge to bring something

Vault Review: Transformers Prime
Arms Micron wave 1

tfgoTN

I’m really enjoying the Transformers Prime figures. It’s a pretty well designed line with some interesting and unique takes on the characters. But what I like most is the Arms Micron minifigures that Takara is producing for their AM line of figures.

Terrorcon Cliffjumper

Just when I thought I had finished up my Transformers reviews for a while, the second wave of Takara’s Prime figures bits. I guess it’s fitting timing that their version of Terrorcon Cliffjumper is released just after Hasbro announced he’ll be among

Prime AM-05, Megatron

Megatron here is my last Transformers Prime review from the latest wave. I decided to take a chance on the Takara version because I was so intrigued by these new Minicon figures. Unfortunately a few issues kept me from liking the figure

Vault Review: Transformers
Prime Arcee (Robots in Disguise)

parcTN

I’ve been stalking my local toy stores for the last couple weeks for wave 2 of the Transformers Prime figures. Growing weary of wading through torrents of Bumblebees, I finally got lucky and happened across a single Arcee while out of town

Vault Review: Transformers
Dark of the Moon, Air Raid

Wednesday’s review is a bit late due to some Internet difficulties, but I think those are sorted out now. So without further adieu, here’s my write-up on one of the more interesting figures to come out of the Dark of the Moon

Vault Review: Transformers Prime
Soundwave (Robots in Disguise)

Last week I was lucky enough to stumble upon a fresh case of the new Transformers Prime: Robots in Disguise. I say lucky because my favorite character, Soundwave, is apparently only one per case and I was able to snag him. Yeah!

2011 Retrospective:
Highlights & Disappointments

Our 2nd installment in the IAT 2011 Retrospective is here: Highlights & Disappointments. Instead of doing separate lists, Vault and I tried a more back-and-forth round table article about what we liked and what we didn’t. It was an interesting effort, even though there wasn’t much

After a couple of weeks hunting, I was finally able to pounce on a fresh Transformers Prime case at my local Toys R Us. Arcee was already on my to-buy list, but Starscream was just too tempting to leave behind. And now

Reveal the Shield Lugnut

lugnTN

After countless weeks of continuous searching at my local ToysRUs, Target, and Wal-Marts, I finally found my Reveal the Shield Lugnut at TJ Maxx. Not that I mind, since he was considerably cheaper than first-run retail. I just wish I didn’t have to wait so long to

Vault Review: Transformers
Dark of the Moon Laserbeak

lsrbTN

I haven’t been too impressed by Transformers: Dark of the Moon toys. That may have something to do with the fact I haven’t seen the movie yet though. Two designs did stand out to me in the toy aisle: the terror dog Hatchet, and the overgrown chicken

Vault Review: Transformers Dark of the Moon Cyberverse Hatchet

I wasn’t expecting to buy any of the new Transformers movie toys until much later. Like in a year or so, when the non-movie movie figures start making their way to the shelves. But when I saw Hatchet at my local Target, he was just too

Vault Review: Transformers
Generations Deluxe Wheeljack

whejTN

I’m rounding out the week with one more Transformers review. One of the more interesting and destructive Autobots on the original cartoon, I’m really surprised we didn’t get a figure of Wheeljack sooner in the Generations line. But he turned out pretty good, so I guess the

Vault Review: Transformers Generations Deluxe Warpath

It’s time for Transformers Reviews Catch-up! I don’t know how it happens, but we always seem to be running a bit behind when it comes to Transformers. Today’s review is about one of the coolest looking Autobots that ever KABLAMMED! his way onto the scene, Generations Warpath.

Vault Review: Transformers
Hunt for the Decepticons Hubcap

hubcTN

I’ve been having no luck finding any of the “Reveal the Shield” Transformers that I want. Not just the nearly impossible ones like Windcharger and Warpath, but even Highbrow or Wreck-Gar. So I decided to satiate my TF need with a “Hunt for the Decepticons” Hubcap I found on sale at Wal-Mart. I’d been eying this figure ever since he was released, but I just never pulled the trigger on him. There was always something else, usually bigger and more expensive, to buy. So eventually this little guy just fell to the bottom of my buying priority list. But after a day of no luck at toy hunting, this guy was a nice surprise for five dollars at the last Wal-Mart I hit up.

Reveal the Shield Wreck-Gar

Vault put us a little behind, but never fear, the fifth and final review for Transformers Week is here! Friday wraps up with a look at everyone’s favorite Junkion, Wreck-Gar. Truth be told, I wasn’t sure if I was going to buy him when I saw

Vault Review: Transformers:
Generations Dirge & Thrust

seekTN

Can you believe that we still have a few unreviewed Transformers left even after Transformers Week? I know, it’s crazy. What’s worse is that we’ve put them off for so long that they’ve almost become Retro Reviews. OK, maybe not that old, but Dirge and Thrust certainly aren’t at the front of the collector community’s thoughts.

Transformers Week Reviews
Reveal the Shield Perceptor

percTN

I was hoping to get this review up much earlier today, but I got a bit behind. So for those of you who have been waiting, I apologize for my tardiness. But in my defense, part of the blame sets on the strangely articulated shoulders of today’s subject. Perceptor is a diva.

Reveal the Shield Turbo Tracks

Transformers Week continues with today’s look at Turbo Tracks from the Reveal the Shield line. Don’t let that yellow fool you, Tracks is right at home with your Generations line toys. Tracks proved a bit difficult for me to find at first, but I had to have him. He’s always been one of my favorites Transformers.

Looking at our piles of unreviewed toys, there are quite a few Transformers piled up. That means it’s time for another theme week! Every day this week, Vault & I will be reviewing a recent Transformers release. Mainly, Generations, but some RtS will find it’s way in too. Today, I take a look at (Sergeant) Kup.
