Transformers Generation Deluxe Chromia - Pictorial Review

Enough with combiners (for now), it's time an official release of a character whose 'type' doesn't make appearance quite often in Transformers universe especially in CHURG line (original mold). In fact, its 1 out of 2 of its kind to be officially release under the Neo-G1 line, both under the same wave (excluding TFTM All Spark Power Fracture who uses Classics Mirage's mold). Chromia, the Autobot Fembot.

Along with the other Fembots, Chromia first appeared in G1's The Search for Alpha Trion. Chromia, along with Moonracer and Firestar who are working under the orders of Elita One, sneak into Shockwave's headquarters to raid the energon cubes stockpile. As the mission went south, they escape and return to Elita One only to be ambushed by the Decepticons and Elita One captured.

After the Generation 1 timeline, Chromia (at least the name) made few other appearances in both cartoon and comic book, the most recent would be in the IDW Generation 1 continuity. Born from the hot spot (filled with unborn sparks) in Caminus, Chromia is a part of a distant colony of Cybertronians whose citizens had adapted to their new life by developing differentiated genders. Joined by Nautica, Chromia went to Cybertron as bodyguards for the Cityspeaker, Windblade.

TFC Ares [Project Ares] - Pictorial Review

And finally, another project completed, the inevitable review after TFC Phobus, Ares himself. But first, let's recap

Project Ares : Team Members

Project Ares : Alt Mode

Project Ares : Robot Mode

With Mastermind Creations Feralcons






Quite surprising to see that both versions of Not-Predacons has almost the exact same shades of orange, red and yellow.

TFC Phobus [Project Ares] - Pictorial Review

Finally, roughly 10 months after the release of TFC Nemean, Ares is now complete with the arrival of the last piece, Phobus (Not Divebomb). A little back story of Divebomb and the review of Phobus's MMC counterpart, Talon, can be found here.

So, let us begin.

In Package

Phobus's first surprised is the size of the box he came in. It was first hinted by RobotKingdom that Phobus will have the same shipping cost as TFC Nemean (Not-Razorclaw) and SR-71 Blackbird (Not-Silverbolt) however, having it in hand, was quite shocked with the size and the weight.

First and foremost! I"M SO SORRY FOR THE DELAY! Kind on busy lately with work and the baby, tried my best to complete this as soon as I can. Sorry guys.

It's combiner after combiner nowadays! After Toyworld Roar and Unique Toys Troll, I present to you, Warbotron's rendition of Abominus's rival, Afterburner of Technobots!

Afterburner is a member of the Technobots that was created by Grimlock in the episode Grimlock's New Brain to rival Abominus, that also made his debut in the same episode. Personally, the Technobots has the best origin of all the G1 combiners, watched the episode over and over again when I was a kid.

Unlike the toy, Afterburner was portrayed in the cartoon as mostly red, the same as the rest of the Technobots.

Unique Toys Ordin O-01 Troll - Pictorial Review

This review is courtesy of 1Toy.

Not every time a company can surprised the fans. After their debut release Warlord (Not-Predaking), Unique Toys released quite a few figures that showed significant improvement product after product. Most notable personally from me would be Mania King, their own rendition of G1 Galvatron. When people thought they are through with combiners, Unique Toys releases pictures of their version of G1 Abominus, dubbed Ordin and Troll, their Not-Blot.

Blot and the rest of the Terrocons made their debut during G1 Episode Grimlock's New Brain, assaulting the Autobots as they arrive at Unicron's head led by Grimlock to stop Galvatron from harvesting more anti-electrons.

Toyworld TW-D01 Roar - Pictorial Review

This review is courtesy of 1Toy. Preorder yours today!

Year of Dinobots indeed! Fansproject Columpio, despite being a great figure and surely a hit considering how big their fanbase are, is not really my cup of tea. Luckily, Toyworld also ventured into the world of the Dinobots this year with their first release, Roar (Not-Snarl)

Unlike Grimlock, Sludge and Slag, Snarl was created as the second batch of Dinobots, together with Swoop, by Wheeljack. The Dinobots in general are not really people-friendly bunch of bots but Snarl took it to another level. An unhappy and unsociable loner by nature, Snarl's actions are the ideas of the others, having not much opinions and even less expressing them.
