Binaltech Asterisk (BTA01 to BTA03) - TFsource Article

Postby Maz » Tue May 21, 2013 5:02 pm

Once in a while, spin-offs can be enjoyed more than the source. I prefer Stargate Atlantis to SG1, Deep Space 9 to TNG, Spawn: The Undead to Spawn and Ketchup to tomatoes. In late 2005, when the main Transformers Binaltech line by Takara in Japan began to wane in popularity, just before it was placed on indefinite gardening leave, Takara had one more shot at re-inventing the line. This adventure was called Binaltech Asterisk and was a final hurrah for this line under Takara before they merged with Tomy and Binaltech tumbled down the priority list. Some of us remember this episode very fondly. Asterisk, not afterthought!

Weapon: Atom-Smasher Cannon
The Asterisk line was a good marketing attempt. My only disappointment was Broadblast. They really should have colored him red to be Ironhide not Blaster. His head mold even screams Ironhide.
