N.Y Toyfair 2020 Fallout

HOT DAMN! the toyfair on this weekend has me excited.  Mainly about the information on the rest of the Earthrise line.  I will admit that the first bunch of releases for Earthrise, just being Optimus, Wheeljack and other guys we’ve seen a billion times before didn’t really get me all that excited, the information from Ty Fair has got me all a flutter!

If you want to have a gander at the show and pictures that I couldn’t be bothered listing, check out this very informative post listing them all which has links to follow to the various galleries.

Legends Blitzwing video review

After almost, or more than two years trying to do this review, I finally have it done!  Why did it take two years?
A combination of writer's block and videoer's block.  I'd record the talkies and sound bored.  I'd take the video, it was crap. This happened more times than I would've liked.... Eventually I settled on a nice in-between where I was satisfied with what I said, how I said it and managed to keep the video short.  I also was happy with my attempts at animations and creating graphics and stuff.

Battlemaster Smashdown

I’ve been pretty unimpressed with Battlemasters from Siege so far.  They’re small (not cheap) and generally lacking paint. The two Battlemasters I’m actually interested in are too big for their purpose and one is an exclusive.  Yes, I am talking about the guys needed for Spinister’s weapons.  So why do I have Smashdown here? 

Because he has an animalistic robot mode.

Gaming of 2019

After Androgyne’s game post, it kind of got me thinking about the games I’ve been playing this year.  Although nowhere near as numerous as his, I think I’ll try listing them down with some thoughts as well (in no particular order).

Cutthroat POTP Figure review

CttStereoHead
I’ve had this guy sitting on my desk for a while now.  Actually I got him out after the Swoop review because they are, well, body-buddies.  However as I’ve spent some quality time with him, playing, fiddling, road trips etc. I’ve come to the conclusion that Cutthroat is more.

My link to Cutthroat is erm, not strong.  As a kid, the Terrorcons were the closest I ever got to completing a gestalt team.  Well, I had Blot and Rippersnapper, both of which I’ve always thought were awesome. At the time that the Power of the Primes line would include the Terrorcons, I was super happy!  Also, I was extremely excited that they were still called the Terrorcons. I thought Hasbro would run away from that term after, well the way that the word terrorist and war on terror etc etc is used by the media… Especially considering how Rippersnappers actual function in G1 was a “Terrorist.” But that's for the eventual Rippersnapper review.

Enough about other stuff, let’s look at Cutthroat right NOW!

Androgyne's 2019 game purchases in review

Heller there! Is this the first guest post on Tets’ blog? I think it is!

I’m in the same boat as Mr Tets, having moved to Japan from Australia a few years ago. I’m an avid gamer, but back in Australia, it wasn’t so easy to find affordable retro games, and my interest waned. But in Japan, it’s a different story, great games can be had for pennies all over the place.

Over the years I've played a lot … and sold a lot of them too, for one reason or another. I can’t play some of my old PAL games here now (or it’s a hassle to), so I end up buying a lot of what I've already played, along with games I haven’t played at all. Scattered amongst those I still get some modern games too.

This year, I may have went overboard, and felt the urge to put a quick comment on everything I picked up. I did play almost all of them afterall! So here it is, a quick comment on every game I bought in 2019, in order of purchase. Enjoy :)
