War for Cybertron Soundwave: SUPERIOR!!!
Category: Technical Stuff … Toys

Just playing around with the WP media upload function. I've never had a problem uploading images via FTP and writing the image code myself (and admittedly I don't like how WP writes it, so I've been editing the automatically generated code to my liking anyway), but the automatic generation of the smaller images is pretty helpful!

WfC Soundwave: SUPERIOR!

Soundwave as a Cybertronian boombox?

Anyway, the new Transformers Generations Cybertronian Soundwave (which takes after the character's appearance in the Transformers: War for Cybertron video game) is definitely replacing the Titanium Soundwave as the default G1/Classics representation of the character in my collection. Fun figure, and he's fairly fanmode friendly to boot! Soundwave normally turns into an armored Cybertronian car of sorts, but the above is my attempt to turn him into an alien boombox in functional reference to his original representation as a cassette deck. 🙂

Happy birthday to Kiddy Phenil!

Kiddy Phenil!

And to me, as well. 🙂

Went to The Cheesecake Factory yesterday for a dual birthday lunch with my dad -- when we ordered a slice of cheesecake, they brought it out with a candle and sang and everything. I know some people find that sort of thing embarrassing, but I think it's rather sweet! I miss candles, too -- I can't remember the last time I got to blow one out for my birthday. I really enjoyed it, such that I think I'm going to buy some scented candles for my room so I can light them and make wishes and blow them out whenever I feel like it. (more...)

You get three guesses...

...why I want this figure, and they don't count if I've already told you. 😉

Golden Pharaoh

Hint: It's not because I give even the slightest crap about Golden Pharaoh as a character. Super Powers figures were not my childhood playthings!

But I do give a crap about Cobra Commander and the Baroness.

Cobra Commander and the Baroness!

I've never really cared about the 3.75" scale before, but sexy figures like these (and cheap, laughable, yet oddly appealing figures like these) are making a convert out of me. COBRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!

The Shredder Forever!

Shredders unite!

Had Turtles Forever featured this unholy alliance, I think the outcome would have been very different! I need to retake this picture with Metal Mutants Shredder, though... that little purple fiend definitely deserves to be included in the Shredder mashup.

THE CHATTERER

Probably my favorite Cenobite in terms of design. 🙂
