Autobots!

And on a similar theme...


Again, Swoop takes focus. What can I say that I haven't said already about my personal favourite robotic transforming pterodactyl? The Wheeljack Alternator is completely lush, combining my love of Mustangs with Transformers - perfect. Even though he is a bitch to transform! And the Bumblebee (Goldbug?) is a Legends mini-bot, and belongs to Emma.


If I was Decepticon Communication Officer and I was this outnumbered, I'd give up too... This is my vintage G1 Soundwave, pretty worse for wear and in need of repair. It was a gift from a friend, and I think it's going to become a bit of a restoration project for me.

Slight Change of Tack... DINOBOT ATTACK!

As my obsessions shift every now and again, I find it hard to stick to one particular theme. And so, on a different note (but from the same album), I present... The Dinobots!

Transformers Animated Dinobots Swoop Grimlock Snarl

I had no choice but to start with Swoop, as he's my favourite; in fact, when I was a kid I made up a song about him. I still remember the words, but they will never be published. The G1 Swoop was impossible to find when it was out (edit: this may explain why) and I never had it, so when the Emcat got me the Transformers Animated Grimlock for Christmas, it didn't take me long to make amends...

Transformers Animated Dinobots Grimlock Snarl

Snarl used to be called Slag, and it's a name he's going to keep in my collection. Since the Dinobots were reduced in number for the animated line, I can understand why the moniker Snarl was used instead - it's cooler sounding, and potentially less offensive to us sensitive Brits... Don't get me wrong though, if Sludge and Slag/Snarl/whatever they call him are also re-designed/released, I'll be all over them.
