LG27 Blaster Legends Comic Translation

Well, after what finally feels like an age,  I’ve finished editing Blaster’s comic from the Legends line.  I really went all out with this baby.  It was fun!

A big thanks must go to a very nice chap who goes by the handle of Gold5 who sent me some nice high quality scans of the comic.  Thanks my friend!  You’re a real champ!

So, as usual  I’ll provide the Japanese, Arrowed and no arrows.

Because Gold5 went to the effort of scanning them for me, I even went and translated the bio too.

TF Legends Comic #1 Translation


The pack in comics of the Legends toys take a fair bit of time to work on, so to move things along, I’ll be working on the online comics from Takaratomy’s website as well.  As a result, here’s the very first of the comics, featuring or darling Transformer Fanatic Rattrap.

In a little extra challenge, my proof-reading friend asked me if I’d ever thought about reversing the comic for Left to right easy reading.  So I gave it a try.  This time, I’ll provide a Japanese one, then straight translation, then finally left-right version.

So, please enjoy Issue #1.

Legends Dinasaurer, Titans Returns Trypticon Review.

Finally, my video review of the mighty Legends Trypticon is finished and man it took me a while to make.  However the reason it did so was because I spent a lot of time doing it.  Obviously....

I am rather pleased with the result.  So, may I present my Legends Dinosaurer or Titans Returns Trypticon video review. 

Incidentally, from my brief googling, it's probably the shortest video review of this guy on the web.  Just a shame my video doesn't seem to show up in the web searches.  Probably because I don't post enough, but hey.  The little guy keeps on working.

Enjoy and leave a comment if you like.

Top toys of 2017

So here I am once again, doing a top toys of 2017.  And battling with the stupid table layout of live writer.

Once again, I’ve kept a list of all the toys I’ve nabbed over the year and this year is looking a little low on the count, with a definite reduction in lines.  You can plainly see that I have been focussing on Legends figures, that and the reduction in quantity is mainly due to a change of living circumstances.  This year has been a bit low in regards to Masterpiece releases especially due to the year being full of  recolours.

Here’s the list of 2016

These are the toys for this year:

  • Racing Miku 2015 team Ukyo (figma)
  • Bruce Lee Yellow Tracksuit version (Figuarts)
  • Team Rocket (Figuarts)
  • Magneto (revo Yamaguchi)
  • Kup/Char (Legends)
  • Sharkitcon & Sweep #7 (Legends)
  • Trypticon (Legends)
  • Hot Rod (Legends)
  • TriggerHappy (Legends)
  • Brawn & Repug (Legends)
  • Kickback & Clouder (Legends)
  • Broadside & Repug suit (Legends)
  • Misfire (Legends)
  • Doublecross (Legends)
  • Megatron (Masterpiece)
  • Kondor and Apeface (Legends)
  • Rewind and Nightbeat (Legends)
  • God Bomber (Legends)

Once again, honourable mentions go to the whole Transformers Legends line with their headmasters.  I seriously love the crappola out of these guys.

Legends Comic Translation LG21 Hard Head


Ladies and gentlemen!  I am proud to present, finally, the translation of Hardheads in pack comic! 
Like, properly edited and looking like a comic. 

AAAAaaaand the best news is that after carefully going over the comic, my run down of it’s story is the same as my dodgy typing up of the story back when I reviewed the toy.  His bio was translated there as well, so READ IT.


Enough blah blah;

Energon Hot Shot, Reflective Review

While trawling through an old back up drive, I managed to find a little project of mine that I worked on while in uni.  It was a basic and HTML programmed page for my own hosted Transformers review page.  Oh the chuckles I had while looking at this.  So, since I am still alive but sadly have less time for blogging, I thought I would post what I did there on here.  Slightly changed as I had a few text links linked to pictures, and it’s just easier to embed pictures in blogger.  So here we go.  Enjoy my na├»ve views of toys when I was a younger grumpy old man.  Enjoy the work of my wonderful 3.2 megapxiel camera when I had very little idea how to use it.

First Review I’ll post will be for (drum roll please)  ENERGON HOTSHOT.

Incidentally, that’s the style of the page I was going for at the time.
