    (That's an awkward conversation to follow.)

    'Cause I know we all like looking at magazines (and because a while back I mentioned that I'd take a look), here are some scans of the TF pages from Hyper Hobby magazine for February 2008.

    Nothing earth shattering, but still fun to see what's in the Japanese toy mags this month.

    my work car however is white, and an unmarked Ford Crown Vic Police car so in that aspect = Prowl with attitude. and yes it has the undercover flashers as well.

    So they chromed Classics Grimlock, that's a funny idea. I'm not sure it works with the mold, but it's got G1 cred.

    Haw, the little mini-allspark cubes that come with the Japanese figures are in scale to Microman.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Not sure what it is, but the black G1 Ironhide looks kinda cool.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    It's an exclusive they have there - colored after their movie counterparts. There's a black ironhide and a lime-green Ratchet.

    And in answer to your inevitable question, I have no idea what they were thinking when they made "Starburst Battles Ratchet"
    All Hail Darth Schmitsky!

    Got bored today and figured out how to make stop-motion videos. First idea that came to mind was (of course) Transformers. After a quick test video of MP Optimus giving me the finger I made this one.

    That one is of Allspark power Landmine. It seemed like one of the easiest ones to start with. I got lost on some of the frames, but let me know what you guys think. I'd like to make an Incinerator one sometime during the week but we'll see.

    That one is of Allspark power Landmine. It seemed like one of the easiest ones to start with. I got lost on some of the frames, but let me know what you guys think. I'd like to make an Incinerator one sometime during the week but we'll see.
    Very very cool. The light and color flickering is a little odd and the camera moves around a little and the focus is a little soft, as if it's locked onto the background instead, and the background fabric moves too much, but it's still quite nifty to watch. It cries out for sounds, and for the bot to do a little something at the end for the final payoff, you barely get to see him in full bot mode. Great job starting out!



    Figgy B, you see the TF photo with that animated press release? Leader Prime looks so lame! What's the dealio?
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    "In Brooklyn, a castle, is where dwell I"

    yeah, it was well after dark when I did it and without proper lighting I had to rely on the flash. I'll have to download some better software than what I have for it right now. It's far too simplistic to add sounds or edit it any way. Working on uploading my second attempt now. Not exactly a giant leap in quality, but getting better. Baby Steps.

    Done uploading. Tried using Black Incinerator but I didn't realize how hard it is to make out the details on that figure. Next time I'll use the US version. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6wrOMZC1O0
    Still no sound. I tried moving the camera around the figure a little while it was "transforming." I didn't notice that I moved it past the view of my background and made the TV visible. Just in case anyone was wondering, I was playing Forza 2 and taking pictures at the same time. Talent, I know.
