2016 Seibertron.com Year in Review - A Beastly Task

2016 Year In Review - One more day is left, and this year will be over. If you look at 2016, there have been too high a number of dark moments outside of the life on the boards.

Beast Wars - This list was seriously a labor of love. It seems the Transformers were introduced to me at the perfect stages of my life.

But enough of this, there's a lot of words coming at you so let's get started!
