Seibertron's own Counterpunch has started a series of articles on how we, Transformers fans "have it good".

This series of articles will focus on what was good about certain toy lines of figures, focusing on the positive, rather than the negative.

In his third article, Counterpunch discusses all that was good and right with the Superlink/Energon series.

Let me take you back to 2004 briefly to the day I saw the first pictures of Transformers Energon Toys. “Those look terrible. I’m not buying that crap with its stupid clear weapons.”

Then I went to Wal-Mart and saw them putting out the display pallet for Energon. Ten minutes later I had picked out all the best paint app figures and was on my way into nearly two years of bitter frustration. I loved every minute of it.

Before talking about the toys, I want everyone to understand something about the Energon line, especially you new ‘movie’ people…This was, by far, the most difficult, evil set of TF toys to find in retail, ever. Concept Bumblebee you say? F’ your Bumblebee. Find me an Energon Grimlock and Swoop.

Seibertron's own Counterpunch has started a series of articles on how we, Transformers fans "have it good".

This series of articles will focus on what was good about certain toy lines of figures, focusing on the positive, rather than the negative.

In his second article, Counterpunch discusses all that was good and right with the Micron Legend/Armada series.

The title alone brings with it a tide of discontent, disappointment, and overall dislike. Arguing for the high points in this line is like playing Devil’s Advocate. Childish, lacking articulation, and gimmick heavy, Armada is the whipping boy of modern Transformers lines. I have to admit, after being taken in by RiD, I was certainly taken back by Armada. Many of my early purchases of this line were actually due to boredom or just to buy something ‘fun’ (I was working a miserable, exhausting job as nighttime security for my University…). Needless to say, my first take on the toys, like many people who see them today for the first time, was not necessarily positive.

Interestingly enough, the line started to sell really well. Not only that, but there was a lot of hype and excitement around the series, much like Animated is causing today. There were people who were unhappy with this new series, but for the most part, those folks were able to get by on the new and exciting reissue G1 toys that were appearing from Takara. Hard to believe in a way, but Armada got less popular with collectors as time went by, where as most series toys seem to see a slow but steady gain in popularity.

Why take another look at this series? Do we really dislike these toys to the degree that popular opinion would suggest? I don’t think so... We all know the bad, I’m going to review some things which might just change your mind, well, that or have to justify to your girlfriend and/or wife why you are spending $40 on a Mini-con.

Seibertron's own Counterpunch has started a series of articles on how we, Transformers fans "have it good".

This series of articles will focus on what was good about certain toy lines of figures, focusing on the positive, rather than the negative.

In his first article, Counterpunch discusses all that was good and right with the Car Robots/Robots in Disguise series.


I'm going to start this conversation with RiD/Car Robots as the basis. Beast Wars was fine and good, but I think of Car Robots as the Preface to modern day Transformers both in style and substance.

When I first saw RiD, I was to put it mildly, blown away. This was everything I had hoped for in Transformers from when I was a kid. Detailed toys, great sculpting, TOYS THAT WERE ACCURATE TO THE SHOW, and a Train combiner! (how f’n cool was that? Seriously, I'm an American kid and we never got that before)

Then, I found out that these toys were complicated. Damn Sideburn is really hard to Transform. What's going on here? Prime and Magnus combine? Megatron is a frickin puzzle? This was way, way more than I remembered from my G1 days of flip the legs out, pull the arms, flip the head, you're done. These toys were engineered in a way that was asking for adult and older collectors to actually handle them. They looked great and were fun/tough to transform.

Iron Maniac, Seibertronian and fellow Detroiter, has shared his review of this custom set.

We can all be jealous because he was able to score it for the comparably small amount of $60 (as opposed to the Ebay $150-$300).

The creator of the set is a group called the TFClub, and they also have plans for other customs to help to really jazz up your boring Transformers including the Emperor Starscream Upgrade Set for MP Starscream, and the armor/trailer for CLASSICs Ultra Magnus.

Join in the already existing discussion here.


We are looking forward to more reviews by Seibertronians that purchase this creative additions.


Now if TFClub would only set up a pre-order page for this stuff...

Seibertron's own Savagery, has informed us that IGN.com have started a new article: "Annoying Character of the day", and opened with none other than Wheelie himself.

It seems the Number #1 reason for Wheelie gaining the Inaugural Annoying Character of the Day wards is his incessant rhyming. To check out IGN's full report on why they believe Wheelie deserves such an honour, please click here.

So what do you think? Are IGN right? Does Wheelie deserve such an honour? Discuss below.

Beast Wars: Ascending #4 teasers from Simon Furman

Simon Furman has once again updated his blog, this time with many hints and teasers about the upcoming Beast Wars: the Ascending Issue #4, to be released Wednesday the 9th of January.

In his short recap Furman discusses Guido Guidi and his efforts on the art side, after replacing Don Figueroa who left the series at after issue #3, and a brief recap of the issue.

Furman concludes his synopsis with a cryptic clue...

Suffice it to say, the action starts on page 1 and doesn’t stop until page 22. And inbetween there’s triumph, torment and tragedy aplenty. No one is guaranteed to survive (and many don’t) and no happy endings are assured. In fact, as so often happens, the ending is also a beginning. Those who know their Beast Wars will be pleased the final scenes on page 22 (I hope!).

There are spoilers aplenty in this blog update, especially for those who may have not kept up to date with the series, so consider yourselves forewarned.

Furman also has a link to Don Figueroa's cover for Issue #4, which you can also see below:
