A mix of FansProject and MakeToys releases.

A mix of FansProject and MakeToys releases.

Over the past several years third party releases have forced collectors to change collecting focus, shift our budgets to accommodate the staggered release dates, all while filling in holes of our collections.
As third party …

Who’s Winning?

Official and unofficial Transformers at TFSource

Official and unofficial Transformers at TFSource


We have recently floated the possibility that we are experiencing another golden age of Transformers collecting, and a majority seemed to agree with us that the live action Transformers movies have been good for the health of the brand. With so much choice available, the topic of choosing my purchases …

Is This The Golden Age?

Golden Age Transformers from TFSource

Golden Age Transformers from TFSource


Is this the golden age of Transformers? While it’s tempting to look at years gone past and recall the good old days, we might actually be better off as fans and collectors now than we ever have been. If we consider the toys that are available to us, to our children, the new media we have …

MMC Salvia Prominon at TFSource


And just like that, she’ got your attention. Mastermind Creations have just released the next two female Warriors in their Reformatted line, R-09 Eupatorium (Elita-1) and R-10 Salvia Prominon (Solus Prime). These two join mould mates Azalea, Zinnia, Stealth Azalea, and Asterisk Mode Azalea in homaging the Fembots from Generation 1 Transformers lore, mostly. There’s no …

MMC Cynicus – An Original Creation

MMC R-12 Cynicus available here at TFSource

MMC R-12 Cynicus available here at TFSource


Surely about 5 years ago, something like this would have been completely inconceivable? A high quality transformers product created by a new company, completely unaffiliated with the official manufacturers and based entirely on an original character created for an official Transformers comic by a fanfic writer who made it and illustrated by …

Felisaber & The New King

Cap

Reformatted R-07 Felisaber available here


I’ll admit, after receiving Tigris and being able to form the mighty Feral Rex as a modern update of the fully combined Predaking, I felt as though MMC’s Feralcon project had been completed. I knew Felisaber was due, and that he was integral to the Battle For Moritorus story line accompanying the Reformatted line of 3rd Party figures, but he …

Continuum Hexatron – The Perfect Upgrade

Cap

Reborn


First there were Transformers. Official Transformers. I liked those. Then there were 3rd Party figures based on Transformers. I ignored those for the most part, before FT Quakewave was forced upon me. Prior to that, one design caught my eye and I always looked at the galleries and teasers despite standing firm against the unofficial onslaught of Not-Transformers product.

Age of Combiners? Dinobots? Wheeljack? Extinction?


2014 has been an incredible year for Transformers collectors, even moreso than 2013 was. This year saw the completion of MMC’s first 3rd party combiner “Feral Rex”, who most people would argue dominated the 3rd Party Predaking wars, as well as the start of the 3rd Party Dinobot Wars where FansProject, FansToys, ToyWorld and others raced to release their interpretations of …

Azalea

Cap

Window to the soulless


There’s good reason for everyone to be excited for Mastermind Creations’ Reformatted R-08 Azalea. MMC have an excellent recent track record with Terminus Hexatron, Bovis, Leo Dux and Talon all hailed as big successes with lasting appeal and quality befitting high end Transformers collections. It is also a chance for collectors to add an Arcee-inspired Transformer to their collections from a credible manufacturer, …
