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.

2007 Movie Voyager Class Optimus Prime Review

The first Transfomers figure I'm going to Review is the leader of the Autobots, Optimus prime. He's Voyager sized, I got the 2007 movie Prime because I didn't like the giant Autobot symbol or the Cybertron markings on the ROTF Optimus. Most of the pictures are out of focus or too dark but I'll try to get some more pictures later.

The driver in vehicle mode disappears up into the seat when you open the door. The driver is not removable without modding, the lights at the front are clear plastic so it looks like the lights are on (I don't know why anyone would have their lights on during the day.)

 There's an autobot symbol on the front, better look at the front and lights.
 The back is a bit hollow, the four squashed circles which connect the shins to the knees are diguised as lights.

I'm not showing transformation so it's straight to robot mode.
Optimus Prime's chest has a fake cab, the real cab is on Prime's backpack, Prime's backpack sticks out quite a bit, the smokestacks are used as guns and can store on his back, how they should be stored makes the guns stick up a lot so I fold them down.
I fold them down like that, it also hides them.
This picture's too dark but you can see what he's doing.

My only comlaint with the figure is that the missiles shoot at random times, it only really happens when I push the missile in after firing, I think it's because when I push it in the spring gets too compact and tries pushes it out causing it to fire.

Thats my first review so it may not be very good. I'll try to get better pictures later.

New Blog

In this blog I should be putting posts about things, and maybe reviews about figures that I have e.g. Star Wars figures and Transformers.

General Grievous I've drawn on MS Paint, not done yet but should comlete it.
