More Legends to come! A Transformers story.

Been feeling a little down lately plus working lots. Still haven't gotten to finalizing the Metroplex review. Anyhow, I decided to complete season 4 of Transformers: The headmasters. I even got Windblade who is this current gen but I decided that I need some fembots. I also got Twintwist and Topspin whose G1 toys were made but were never featured in any of the cartoons/anime.

Hopefully I can review these folks soon. Laters.

Toy Review: Takara Generations Metroplex w/Scamper TG-23 review part 2 of 3!

Metroplex will clean up this mess!
Aloha Folks, back with part II. I had some issues with my uploads so it took me a while to fix it. Today we look at Alt mode and city mode for Metroplex. Without delay, let's get started! Oh, don't mind my messy room. *Special autobot appearances.*

Alt mode (No stickers applied):





Twist and shoot!

What the hook is used for.







Very easy to transform. I was amazed by his robot mode but his alt mode is easy to transform and play around with. It's nice for Legends scale robots. Metroplex serves as a carrier and a surfboard for the bigger robots. Haha. He looks kinda naked without the stickers though it will be remedied on the next and final Metroplex review. The pictures here don't really do his size justice. He is still that darn big! He looks awesome here no doubt. Scamper can use Metroplex's head as a canon. Neat gimmick. Play around with him for maximal fun. The western release has his ramps as black and its neat as hell. The Japanese release has him all white, something fans got turned off by but once again G1 animation colors the Japanese go by. Just FYI for those who wondered why the color difference.

Toy Review: Takara Generations Metroplex w/Scamper TG-23 review part 1 of 3!

At long last! 5 years out of his cage, Metroplex heeds the call of the last prime! I figured it was time to test the waters on this guy and man was I not disappointed.... at least not yet. Today I will take a look at robot modes for both Metroplex and Scamper. Part II will deal with alt modes and such while part III will deal with add on stickers and other things I missed in the first two parts. Without delay, let's get started!

*Warning: This is the Takara Generations release from 2013 and not the re-release of the Legends figure. Hence, there is no Manga (comic). Not to mention the voice clips in this release are English. I heard the re-release is now in Japanese. *

Boxing and contents





Man, that is one huge box to encase a huge figure! I will get to this part later on. It was actually a pain to remove Metroplex from his prison box because he is twist-tied and taped heavily into all these individual black brackets. It took me some time but he was freed at last. On the side of the box was his instruction manual plus stickers that are needed to give him some more detail. Its optional though. Anyhow, next category.

Toy Review: Transformers Takara Tomy Legends LG-46 Kup (Char) and recoil targetmaster

Hi folks. I guess I'm not out of the woods yet. I didn't want to let what I had keep me down so I'm going to do my best and do the things I like doing without straining myself too much. Any how, I pre-ordered LG-46 and a batch of other figures prior to my sickness. I had no choice but to ship it. Anyways, I wanted to get this Kup because he looks so much identical to his G1 toon part. I had to play with him. Results??? Let's get started!!

Boxing and content:





The comic book if you see in the bottom right hand corner depicts the scene where Rodimus Prime (Convoy), Blurr, and Kup (Char) left Seibertron in the Headmasters series. Kup pretty much settled on planet Micro. You can read the story translation here:

Note: I accidently mis-transformed Recoil in targetmaster mode for the entire shoot.

Alt Mode:


Very identical to his G1 toon pick-up truck look. The colors are fantastic here. No qualms here on entirely though I did have some trouble transforming him back to this truck mode after I transformed him to robot mode. Looking good so far.

Toy Review: Takara Tomy Transformers Legends Rewind and Nightbeat LG-28

Aloha fans, we are back with another TF review, unfortunately I left the next insecticon at my brother's house during my staycation there. So now I am left to do a quick substitute until I reacquire the Fansproject figure. Today's feature is none other than Rewind, one the autobot cassettes created to combat Soundwave's Decepticon cassettes. Without haste, let's get started!

Boxing and contents.





Boxing is your standard Takara packaging with attributes and a comic book. I was confused by what was going on. But I found the synopsis page online nonetheless so here is the link:





Rewind comes equip with a thin rifle which can be pegged to his right forearm or plugged on both hands. I love how he has his classic cassette look on his back but updated with icons such as the Wi-Fi bar, battery icon (he is down one bar), and familiar icons such as the Facebook icon that is shaped with letter T instead. His G1 inspired eyes looks alright. For once, I kinda do prefer the IDW Hasbro visor look. Anyhow, Rewind looks great here.
