Toy Robots In Disguise

12 September 2006 | Hisham | | Transformers

Once upon a time in my early teens I had to save my weekly allowance for a couple of months before I could buy an original Transformers G1 toy. I only managed to save enough to buy two: Sideswipe and Sunstreaker. Then later when I was overseas, I bought Wheeljack which I was unable to find when I returned back to Malaysia.

Last weekend back in Sitiawan I finally found Wheeljack somewhere in one of the cupboards, so I put the three of them together for a photo shoot.


Bumblebee Is Watching You Poop

I'm watching you poop!

I've refrained from posting any leaked Transformers live action movie bot photos... until today when I saw this image of Bumblebee from this site (who will almost certainly be a Chevrolet Camaro, instead of a classic VW Beetle) evidently, with great intent on watching you poop.

Beast Wars - A Series Review

07 July 2006 | Hisham | | Transformers, TV
Rattrap,Optimus Primal, Rhinox and Cheetor... no-prize for guessing who's whoIt was just past the mid-90s. X-Files was at its prime on TV and there was news of a brand new CGI Transformers series that will be airing on TV. Being an 80s child, the original Transformers series was one of the shows I followed fanatically. The thought of giant alien robots being able to hide among us in the form of Porsches, Lamborghinis, Lancia Stratos and VW Beetles was very exciting to me and my friends.

But after reading the synopsis of Beast Wars Transformers my interest waned. What's so hot about robots being able to transform into Earth animals on an supposedly uninhabited alien planet? Why is there even a need to hide?

I passed on the pilot. But sometime during the middle of the first season, I happened to catch an episode, thanks to the proddings of my friend Ishak.
