Transformer Space Pirate AHOY! Thundertron!

I have a thing for Pirates.  They are cool and there aren’t many Transformers that are classed as pirates, so when I learned of Thundertron here being a pirate, I had to snap this guy up right away!  Annoyingly though he didn’t get released here down under.  But luckily the good folks at Amazon provided a way, and at half the local price as well.  Nice, but not surprised really.

Game Review– Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a little game review, and so here I thought I would go back a bit and get a crackalacking on one.  As a result, I have chosen Sonic and SEGA All Stars Racing as my review.  Why? Because I quite like it and would like to lead into Racing Transformed later on.  So away we go!

Queen’s Gate Puchitto series…

Since I appear to be going through some of these silly random ‘lucky draw’ figures, here is another set I found.  These characters are based off the off-shoot from Queen’s Blade, Queen’s Gate.  This ‘story’ allows for femme fatales from other universes to join together in the Queen’s Blade books/world.  I mainly got this set as they have versions of Alice in there.  And she tickles my fancy. 

The whole set Comprises of Lili from Tekken, Dizzy from Guilty Gear, Mae from King of Fighters, Iruha (from I don’t know) and Alice from some eroge and Alice in Boost form (who is the ‘secret’ character).  Please note that some of these following shots could be classed as NSFW. Although very mildly

New styles of Masterpiece Convoy

Finally, after taking these images when I first got the toy I am going to post them on my blog.  I’ve been putting this off, as I ended up taking a massive HEAP of pictures.  Thus, here we go. 

Masterpiece 10, Convoy.  This guy is a redesign for the Masterpiece line.  Smaller in stature and cleverly designed, he lacks a lot of the weight and chunk of the original Masterpiece Convoy, but is a much more poseable figure with good weight distribution and is closer to the cartoon look of Convoy/Optimus than the first.  Hard to believe, as I thought that MP1 was a pretty impressive figure and looked pretty bang on, but this guy has a few little additions, that while not that much individually make for a smoother and better proportioned robot AND vehicle mode.  Let’s have a look see.
