As 2013 races towards its conclusion, collectors are taking stock of all the new Transformers figures they’ve added to their collection in 2013, a year that saw the Takara Tomy and Hasbro Masterpiece lines engage a higher gear and really start giving fans what they supposedly wanted. A year that …

Transformers GT – Part 4

Transformers GT - Mission GT-R accomplished


As quietly as it came, TakaraTomy’s Transformers GT toy-line has seemingly given us its last offering and wrapped up with as little fanfare as when it launched.

The Mentality

Joustra Diaclone Battle Convoys - stamping variants


Don’t judge. You can’t judge, not in this game, with its myriad population of collectors and enthusiasts.

A proper TF Racing Grid


How do you spice up a Transformers niche sub-line that is struggling to garner attention and respect at a time when Takara Tomy, Hasbro and various 3rd Party companies are churning out all sorts of varied and quality product?

Transformers GT – Part 2

Masterpieces in their own right


Amongst the avalanche of exciting Transformers Masterpiece revelations, the imminent arrival of the biggest Transformers toy ever and Takara Tomy’s Transformers Go! series, news of the Transformers GT official release got a little buried.

Transformers GT – Part 1

Gentlemen, start your engines!


What do you get if you cross G1 Transformers characters, moulds from the Binaltech/Alternity conceptual era with Japan’s premier touring car series made famous in the Western world by legendary Sony PlayStation racing series Gran Turismo?
