Upon this edifice shall an action figure deemed unworthy to live be burned until dead. Thus was the will of the public. Thus spake the voice of the people. So shall it be done.Continue reading “Action Figure Execution II”
Tomorrow is my birthday. This costs $100. If just 20 of you put in $5 each, we could make this happen. We could put this glorious ’80s style LEGO spaceship into the hands of a young man who desperately wants a miracle. You can change a life. For just $5, you can change the world. The power is in YOUR hands. Just open your hearts and give!Continue reading “Chris’s Shameless Birthday Postathon”
Attention TransFans: the TF3 Flip-Outs kids meal toys at Burger King might be of interest. I just picked up Optimus Prime and Megatron. Not gonna open Megs up, because, like Shania Twain, it don’t impress me much. But Optimus is nice. Not because of the toy, which is kind of useless, but because the “Autobots, roll out!” audio clip it plays really is Peter Cullen’s voice. That’s a win for a $1 toy a disgruntled, poorly trained teenage burger monkey hands you through your car window.Continue reading “Chris digs the Transformers 3 Flip-Outs at Burger King”
I saw this at TRU the other day, and almost bought it for its sheer weird 1980s wonderfulness. How does this happen? Who makes the decision to cross these franchises and pit these two characters against each other? What insane genius decided to sculpt and color these characters in their early ’80s appearances? And why the hell does it cost $30? ‘Cause I think if it had been $25 I would probably own it right now. But $30? Nope. They lost me. Just barely, but they lost me.
By the way, Mattel, if you release a Darkseid vs. Hordak set, I promise I will own that shit at any price. Just throwin’ it out there.
This is a new Transformer from the upcoming Transformers: Dark Of The Moon. It is a NASCAR stock car that turns into a robot with a mullet. In case that didn’t register I will repeat it: it’s a NASCAR robot WITH A FUCKING MULLET. You understand that he’s making fun of you, right? He mocked black people in the last film and now he’s mocking NASCAR fans. And in the end, if you see this movie, he’s mocking you.Continue reading “Michael Bay Can Suck My Dick”

This is Drag Strip. He’s a Transformer, a Decepticon, a member of the Stunticons, and one of the most memorable little toys I’ve ever owned. Not only does he provide a much needed limb for Menasor and turn into a pretty cool little race car, but he has six wheels. Why does he have six wheels? Click the pic and I’ll tell you all about it.Continue reading “Chris’s tribute to Drag Strip”

Optimus Prime transforms from a protoform that looks like shit…
…to a robot that looks even more like shit.
