Happy Boxing Day! (Bumblebee Review Too)

I think the day after people's Birthdays should be called "Wrestling Day", for no reason other than Boxing Day. 
Do you want to know what I got? Well I'll tell you anyway!:
4x Deluxe Transformers (Ratchet, Ravage, Brawn and Lockdown)
1x Voyager Transformer (Stratosphere, it has a tiny Transforming Optimus Prime)
1x (Noticably Stouter) Book of General Ignorance
4x Boxes of Chocolate (I dislike them more each year)
1x Transformers Game (PS3)
1x Kirby Super Star Ultra (DS, Getting it in a few days)
3x Shirts (Got Today)
2x Shower gel (Always a good sign!)
That's it. The only ones I didn't know I was going to get were the shirts and the Book of General Ignorance.
Deluxe Bumblebee Review

Hope you had a good day yesterday. I promised my next review was going to be Bumblebee so here it be:

Bumblebee is an Autobot scout whowas sent to earth to find the Allspark
The main gimmick of this bumblebee is the cannons that are hidden in the front of the car, I forgot to take the picture of the cannons but thanks to the power of Stock Photos I have aquired a picture from the internet:
Here he is next to Sam Witwicky
This Bumblebee doesn't have a number/licence plate like the Human Alliance one
The front:

The doors open, they've even moulded seats:

Just imagine the Transformation noise
Here's the robot mode:
Sam Witwicky comparison
Side and back view
With the cannons:
I'm a bit tired so it might not be as good as the other reviews, they probably could have made the chest transform and wrist articulation, it does have moveable thumbs though so he can hold things.

Darn Memes! & Other Randomness

Sorry for the (nearly a month) absence, I was busy (LIES!). I didn't have anything to put up(Truth this time). ......Do you know the meme "OM NOM NOM", if you don't: it's the sound people make when they're eating (apparently), this originated from The Cookie Monster from Sesame Street when eating cookies, also, have you seen the Doctor Who episode Terror of The Autons? With the plastic chair that eats Mr McDermott? And the SUPER SCARY doll? Probably not, but I've wasted 2 minutes, Yes, an entire TWO MINUTES OF MY LIFE to make a picture just so you know I'm still here.

Not only do you get this picture above, you also get another one for FREE! A Doctor Who logo that I made:
Also, Today is Poppet's birthday so I've made a picture:
If you don't know what it is: it's based off a Poirot book cover, specifically "The Labours of Hercules".
Happy Birthday Poppet!

New Comic Preview

Bah-weep-Graaaaagnah wheep ni ni bong.

I am in the planning of a Transformers comic, one that has a storyline.
The robots are mainly based on Generation 1 Transformers, so you might be expecting something like this:
 But the comic is going to be set in Victorian England, as shown in this preview:

Yet again, this isn't it. all I've really done is a rough plot and one character: Jazz:
I might change Jazz's appearence, I'm not sure.
I've thought of a name, "Primus save the Queen"(Primus is like a God to Transfomers), but I don't really think it's a very good name, so I'd like you to think of a name, you can suggest more than one name if you want, there won't be a prize but I will mention the person who thought of the name, I may keep the name "Primus save the Queen" if you're entering remember it's a Transformers comic set in Victorian England. Bye!

Transformers computer drawing: Sunstreaker

Hello, today's post is a picture is of Sunstreaker. Sunstreaker is the twin brother of Sideswipe (Don't worry, I don't know how robots can have brothers either!) they both transform into Lamborghinis. He thinks he's better than everyone and hates his paintwork being scratched. That's why this picture exists:

If you don't know what the picture is about: Sunstreaker has a scratch on his forearm and he's shocked about it. The autobot symbol is off the internet beacause I can't draw good autobot symbols. the next picture is a mix between a preview and just for fun:
I call the cat Jaden after the main character from Jedi Academy and you probably know who the little yellow fellow is, if you don't, I'll leave you waiting. cwowo rooohu whwokao aoahscwo!(No, I didn't sneeze, it's shyriiwook for "see you next time". Bye!)

Decepticon Starscream Card

How long ago was it since I last posted? 3 weeks of something I think. Anyway... This is a card I made with Starscream from Transformers, the second in command to Megatron on Earth (The real second in command to Megatron is Shockwave, who is on Cybertron), he is also the leader of the seekers: Starscream(The one in the photo, White and Orange), Thundercracker(Blue) and Skywarp(Black and Purple).

The picture of Starscream is one I've drawn myself that was originally Sunstorm (They're identical in shape but I wrote Sunstorm under) that I coloured in, the Decepticon logo background I found on the internet and cut out on a Craft Robo (Not a Transformer!) so I had to make an outline, The "DECEPTICON STARSCREAM" on the sides I based the text on the box of Leader Jetfire (Which I shall be reviewing later) that just said "MECH ALIVE" so I made the design of some of the letters.

I'm entering this card into Lothian Crafts Challenge #5 "For A Man" Because people who grew up in the 80s have probably seen Transformers and might remember Starscream

Transformers comic: All that Jazz

I've decided to make a short comic about Me and my sister's favourite character: Jazz. Optimus Prime and Wheeljack are also in the comic. The place where this comic is based is the Ark, the ship that the Autobots used to search for Energon, the Ark crashed in the side of a volcano in the desert. I've called the comic "All that Jazz"

I've put what could be called an easter egg related to Transformers 2.
Also, the background's supposed to be orange but its scanned it yellow.
This is the first comic I've made and I'm very happy with it.

Omega Supreme Picture

Hello, this isn't a computer drawing this time, this is one I drew by hand and coloured with pens.
Omega Supreme may be the biggest known autobot and he is part of the Guardian robots.
He also talks differently e.g."Power: Optimal. Mission: Destroy Megatron."(War for Cybertron). the next few he doesn't actually say, someone's made these up: "Favorite punctuation mark: colon." "Storytime: informative." "Characteristic speech pattern: averted.".
Anyway, Here's the Picture:

Not exactly cartoon accurate but i think it's a good picture.

Transformers Leader Optimus Prime Review

Its been quite a long time since I last posted. This time it's another review of the leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime, This one's very different to the voyager class one I reviewed before, a lot bigger too. This Optimus Prime can combine with Leader class Jetfire.

Vehicle mode is very detailed and accurate to a Peterbilt 379, which Optimus Prime's vehicle mode is.

Photos of different sides:
Photo above has Sam Witwicky from the Human Alliance Bumblebee because Sam is actually more in scale with Optimus Prime than the Human Alliance Robots
Optimus's vehicle mode makes engine noises by pressing a button on the back of the vehicle.

Still, no transformation, straight to robot mode!

Robot mode. Optimus is very tall in this mode, He's the tallest Transformer I have, bigger than Superion (Who I should be reviewing sometime). He is also very detailed in Robot mode.
To show how big he is in robot mode, Human Alliance Sam is in the photo below
Photo's of the side and back:
Optimus also has the blades as seen in the movie
He has a Cybertronian glyph on the blades
Optimus Prime's head:
When abutton is pushed on Prime's chest, his eyes and chest light up, his eyes light up green on the figure but in the movie his eyes are blue. I've took the batteries out so don't bother looking for the lights on the photo
The gears in Optimus's windows move too

I've read that this Optimus Prime is hard to transform but if you are considering buying it for anyone don't let the difficulty put you off, its not as hard as they say it is, the instructions aren't very helpful but if you need help Youtube has lots of videos on how to transform Optimus from vehicle to robot and back. That's My review for Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Leader Class Optimus Prime

TFA Drawing: Starscream & Seekers

Amazing, 2 posts in 1 day. This time it's Transformers Animated Starscream and his clones. I'm listing the names and what part of Starscream's personality they have. The uncoloured ones aren't listed. Right to left:

  • Starscream (All)
  • Thundercracker (Egomaniac)
  • Skywarp (Coward)
  • Ramjet (Liar)
  • Ramjet with helmet
  • Sunstorm (Suck-up)
  • Sunstorm with helmet
  • Slipstream (Unknown)

Again,please put in the comments which is your favourite one. Next picture is probably Wreck-Gar.

TFA Drawing: Blitzwing

A new post after a few weeks, but it's not a review today (Even though I've only done 2 reviews so far).
This time it's a Ms Paint Drawing. A drawing of Transformers Animated Blitzwing, the German accented Triple Changer with 3 different personalities: Calm, Angry and Crazy. He may be my favourite Transformer in Animated. I got the idea to draw it because my Sister (You may see me mention her in other posts) Showed me a picture of Blitzwing that someone drew, so I decided to draw my own Blitzwing.

Here are the three heads of Blitzwing, uncoloured first, then coloured: Calm, Crazy and Angry in that order:

The only non-default colour that i used is Angry's face. Please put in the comments which is your favourite head.

Transformers Human Alliance Bumblebee Review

Today I'm going to do a review on Human Alliance Bumblebee. He's Voyager sized and transforms into a Chevrolet Camaro

The human (Sam Witwicky) can sit in the drivers seat or the passenger seat

Bumblebee has the Chevrolet logo on the front, but the Autobot logo is nowhere in his alt mode
The number plate on the back has "4NZZZ454" on it, the Zs are probably a joke on Bumblebee's name. This photo's a bit blurry
Again, no tranformation so it's robot mode
Bumblebee is very big (obviously) next to Sam. He's not movie accurate but he's still a great figure. The seats make his forearm guards.
Bb's back, has the whole top of the car on it

Now, the weapons
Probably the most obvious weapon is the cannon arm which fires missiles.
He has a battle mask that drops down over his face
A double barreled cannon over his head
A chaingun on his shoulder which a Human character can fit in. Blurry again
An overhead cannon that a human character can fit in on Bb's left arm

Also, you can fit Sam on the cannon arm but it's a bit pointless because there is no human interaction with it

Now the front and back of Sam Witwicky. He has shoulder articulation, waist, top of leg, knee and neck articulation
That's my review for Human Alliance Bumblebee and Sam Witwicky. There's two things I think they could do to make it better: A right hand so you can change from cannon to hand and back and a more realistic colour car seats.
