KFC KP-06 TRU MP10 Masterpiece Optimus Prime Hands Review

December 15th, 2014

That title is a bit of a mouthful.

Mmmm. KC Masterpiece…

What’s that? Oh, the review. Right.

TRU MP10 isn’t just my favorite Optimus Prime, it’s one of the best bots in my collection. Even picking it up tends to give me a good feeling, from the heft to the colors to the articulation to the transformation and even the character. It’s even better than some chicken slathered in delicious barbeque sauce, freshly fried and breaded, just waiting to drip those delicious juices from-

REVIEW. MUST REVIEW.

AND THEN GO GET FOOD.

Action Pose – MP Optimus with KFC Hands

December 10th, 2014

Now that I’ve written that title, I kind of want tiny drumsticks to put in Optimus’s hands…

And he could actually hold them now, since now his hands are much more articulated.

Just pretend the Ion Cannon is a turbochicken leg or something.

Action Pose – Orion Pax vs Devastator

October 1st, 2014

IDW Orion Pax was the badass supercop of Cybertron. The only way he could top that was to become Optimus Prime.

That’s why when the Constructions were suspected of combining without a license, there was only one bot who could defy scale and continuity to axe them about it. To their face.

Action Pose – Double Blaster Bumblebee

August 1st, 2014

The blade on Battle Blade Bumblebee looks like it’s mounted backwards and looks obvious when stored.

Not that the blaster is that much better, at least if you transform it according to the instructions.

The MOAR You Know – Generations Skullgrin Scale

July 21st, 2014

My Classics shelves mainly have Deluxes and Voyagers. Scale doesn’t matter as much for that, as it’s better to just go with what you think looks good when it comes to a collection that has bots from different design aesthetics and even different lines, but some characters are better suited for small stuff like Cyberverse, Legends, or even Scouts. Legends Bumblebee looks great on a Classics shelf because Bumblebee is supposed to be small.  The same goes for Legends Swerve.

Officially those bots are meant to go with other Legends bots, but really it’s a nice way for HasTak to get better scaled bots for a Classics collection.

But what about doing the exact opposite, putting something like a Deluxe in a Cyberverse collection?

Action Pose – FP Brainstorm Jet Mode

July 14th, 2014

One of the coolest things about FP Brainstorm is definitely the transformation.

One of the other coolest things about FP Brainstorm is the result of that transformation, which is one of the sleekest and most kibble free jet modes on any Transformer.
