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.


Counterpunch continues on with the article, which you can check out in full in the original thread, and please feel free to add your comments and thoughts on the topic in Counterpunch's original thread.

Seibertron's own Counterpunch has come back from a deep undercover mission with a report regarding the safety of your toys, and how to keep your collection safe from the threats of sunlight, smoke and even terrorists.

Firstly a word from our agent Counterpunch:

Hey gang. This is not my most cohesive article I've done, but there were a lot of topics I wanted to hit on and one major one to work towards. Hopefully you can forgive the flow and ask questions to expound on anything particular to you. This article is geared towards collectors with large or soon to be large collection as a wake up call. My goal was to have this serve as a note to stick in the back of everyone's head as their collections start to grow and the small difficulties of ownership start to catch up with them.

This is all from my personal experience, so of course results may vary.

Also, I've been asked on a few occasions about my interviews. Be assured that they aren't done. Hopefully one or two can get pulled together soon (PM me volunteers!). My goal is to do actual video interviews at BotCon. 8)

In the absence of anything witty to say (it's 3:15 am) understand that I will personally come to your door to discuss any "criticism" you might throw my way.
