I’m trying to catch up on some of my 2012 reviews before the end of the year, so today I’m doing two Transformers Prime figures in one review. Dead End and Wheeljack End may share the same body, but their unique head designs and paint apps
It’s Monday night as I’m writing this review. Like a lot of other Masters of the Universe fans, I’m anxiously waiting to hear if the ultimate Castle Grayskull playset is going to be a reality, but the website must go on, and it seems I’m never
This week, I’m looking at the Transformers Prime Gaia Unicron. This is the first Prime import that I pre-ordered before the press images were even released. I’ve been pretty happy with Takara’s exclusive figures so far, so I thought I’d take a chance on this guy. If only I knew then
I’ve apparently been buying toys faster than I can review them, which is always a dangerous thing (especially for my wallet). So I’m doing a double dose of Transformers Prime since Bulkhead here has been waiting for a couple weeks already.
I thought I’d finish off the week with the other figure that came with Terrorcon Cliffjumper. Even though I already had a Hasbro Soundwave, I decided to try out the Takara version too because I wanted to see the differences and I love dem Microns!
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 their SDCC exclusives.
I’m trying to get the last couple Transformers Prime figure reviews up before the next wave starts to hit. This poor Vehicon got put on the back burner for a couple weeks while I worked out some of the newer figures. But it’s finally his turn.
One of my favorite figures in the Transformers Prime line is the First Edition Starscream. His cocky expression and ability to formulate dramatic gestures make him extremely fun. When Takara announced they were doing a Skywarp repaint based on the FE, I had to have it.
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 for Planet Comicon.
It’s taken me a few weeks, but I was finally able to track down a First Edition Transformers Prime Cliffjumper for a decent price! It ended up being the Takara version (which was sadly cheaper than Hasbro’s), but at least I was able to snag one.
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!
