Kickstarter for the Ocular Echo Books Incoming

We took a bit of time to make this animated GIF for the Kickstarter page. Think we'll make more of them, they're tricky to get looking right, but it'll spice the page up a bit. We all know how much of a niche market vintage Transformers collecting is, so we'll need all the help we can get to make these books a reality. We are aiming to get the campaign up and running in two weeks. We'll keep you posted, there's a lot of moving parts to this. Please stay tuned.
Here's a link to the promotional video that showcases the project:

"Upgrades" Part 22 - Carnifex, Shockwave, and Contact Shot


Another batch of figures gets the upgrades treatment. I picked up a couple of figures a couple weeks back, figured I should toss them in the tent for a shoot.

Decepticon Small Pretenders


Finally got the last one to finish this trio. I've been a little lax on my US G1 collection since I started going for the international releases. But when a decent deal comes up on one, I can't say no.

So, I've been a little lax lately in my posting, but this is the reason, so stoked to finally be able to share this with you guys:

Coming to a solar system near you in 2017. Enjoy an energon fizzy for sharing and two if shared with a robotic lifeform!

"Upgrades" Part 19 - Masterpiece Seekers


After getting Skywarp yesterday, it's finally time to do a quick Updates post on the trio. There's a lot of extra stuff built into the Masterpiece mold that wasn't on the original, and more gimmicks than you can shake a stick at.

"Upgrades" Part 18 Masterpiece Star Saber and KFC Simba

I had to do these two together, Star Saber is my favorite Masterpiece so far, they went above and beyond on the screen accuracy and gimmicks without harming the figure's overall build. Couple him with KFC Simba, and they are amazing together.
