SDCC 2015: A Look at the Kreon Class of 1985

If you’re looking for good photos of this toy,um, sorry. I don’t have a good photo setup at the moment, but I hope to change that in the future. Enjoy these official press photos, won’t you? Review sample provided by Hasbro and Hunter PR. When Hasbro announced that there would be a follow-up to last year’s Comic Con Kreon exclusive set, I got giddy. While I’m not a huge collector of Kreons, I understand their appeal. I also can get behind themed sets that are just fun, if not completely goofy. The Yearbook Kreon sets are just that – whimsical

Final Transformers Club Figure Revealed – Chromedome!

We all knew this was coming, and Chromedome was probably the most anticipated figure, so it makes sense the Transformers Club would reveal his figure last. I really love the look of Chromedome’s deco on Wheeljack’s body.  It’s a fantastic recreation of the G1 character, and yeah, the robot does the same fakery with the chest panel, but it still looks great. Except for that CG head.  It just looks out of place, right now, and we’ll have to wait to see production samples.  It looks like it’ll be good, but there’s something a bit… off about it, with it not being

Waspy Has Plannz – Apparently A Double Date With Thrust

Hot off the comic reveal of Thrustinator yesterday, the Transformers Club revealed the full figure mock-up of this fusion of Waspinator and Thrust, as well as the 3D design of the new head: In the blurb on their website, the TCC said that Waspinator got a new body after the events of “Beast Machines”, but he has to share it with Thrust.  This new merged “Thrustinator” has planzz which we will see very soon. I can’t wait.  This is so odd, bizarre, and unexpected that I love it.  If it weren’t for the fact that it uses Dirgegun’s mold, I’d say

The TF Club Reveals Final FSS Character — And You Won’t Believe It

Today, the Transformers Club revealed the final pages of the FSS2.0 Preview comic, and you can read them via this link: http://transformersclub.com/TCC_FSS2.cfm In this comic, we see more doings of Heinrad and Rhinox in Axiom Nexus, spying on a new uncatalogued reality that seems to be changing and picking up bits and pieces of other realities all the time.  In it we see Chromedome, Stylor, Rewind, and Treadshot, in addition to the previously seen Barricade and Fisitron.  So that’s the five known characters… but who’s the sixth? It’s Thrustinator, a post-“Beast Machines” Waspinator/Thrust, apparently.  At first I thought, “How the heck

FSS Updates from the Transformers Club

FSS2.0 Week continues for the Transformers Club.  On Tuesday, they released a 3D rendering of Rewind’s new head: Looking good with the camera, there!  I’m still jazzed about this toy. Then, last night, they uploaded 2 pages of the 7-page FSS preview comic to the TCC’s Facebook page. Page 1 Page 2 In it, we see Rhinox and Heinrad viewing a timestream in which Fisitron and Barricade are having a… disagreement about certain crimes Fisitron may or may not have committed.  In it, we also see a reference to “Oil Slick”, who may be another FSS character, or may be

The Next Transformers Club Figure Makes James Roberts Smile…

…and the rest of us weep bitter tears, each tear filled with our hopes and dreams.  THANKS JAMES. Anyway, the next figure to be unveiled by the Transformers Club is… Rewind! I love this figure.  I’m especially happy that it’s a mold that was released only in Japan.  I never got the tape-tank twins, so I’m eager to get my hands on this one.  The deco is fantastic, the new head sculpt with the camera lens is awesome.  Yeah, the alt-mode doesn’t fit with what we saw in the More than Meets the Eye comic; I’m willing to overlook it cause the

The Latest Transformers Club Figure Reveal Is Fisitron

Also known as Ironfist, Fisitron is a redeco of Wreckers Roadbuster, who in turn was a remold of Fall of Cybertron Swindle.  This particular version of Fisitron hails from the Wings Universe, where he wasn’t a member of the Wreckers team.  Instead, he was part of Metalhawk’s Elite Guard team, where he went toe-to-toe with the Combaticons multiple times. So, what do you think?  It’s a good update from his original G1 toy, keeping the same general color scheme. It’s kind of weird they went with the Elite Guard symbol as opposed to the Wreckers symbol, especially since 1) they
