Join Masterpiece Shockwave and Hot Rod on their 3 week Machu Picchu hiking trip – bring a back pack!

First time hiking, guys?

Divine powers continue to wash us over with delights as new full-color photographs featuring Masterpiece Shockwave and Masterpiece Hot Rod hit the web today. It’s of note that TFsource posted grainier versions with “DO NOT COPY” plastered all over them.  I lol’d.

The full photos displaying the accessories and alt-modes are just as glorious as the initial reveal a few days ago.  There’s just one aspect shared by both of these guys that I can’t help but mention and that’s the absolutely enormous backpacks. It looks like these dudes independently graduated college and heading out on a quest to ‘find themselves’ in a foreign land. I suppose neither took the time to watch or read “Wild” either.

Backpacks aside, both of these are just simply awesome additions to the Masterpiece line.  Shockwave appears to have a lot of customization available such as options of styles of hands (clear or opaque), his own “Shockwave” gun, a detachable hose, and you can even omit his cannon-hand!

Look at the hands!!!

Hot Rod still looks a little bit like two different sized robots cut in half and re-attached at the waist.  He also appears to be following a bit in the footsteps of Masterpiece Rodimus Prime with his accordion style chest transformation.  Well, we just can’t have it all and I cannot wait to get these guys in hand.  Great work TakaraTomy!

Combiner Wars Victorion has been revealed

This pretty much sums up fan reaction to Victorion. Colorscheme: Accurate! Thanks Allen for this funny tidbit.

All I’ll say is that I was expecting all the female characters we know and love to become the parts that combine into Victorion.  I was NOT expecting a bunch of inverted-Seacon-colored genericons.  I didn’t like this idea to begin with and am definitely not stoked on the results.  Oh well, kudos for trying something new.

Guilty or Innocent?

Guilty or Innocent?

This tee at RIPT Apparel today hits all the right buttons: All five of them.  Who doesn’t love a minimalist sharkticon in place of a Trademark symbol?  Will we see this tee showing up at Botcon 2015?  Only time will tell.

Autobot Tracks: in case you didn’t already know, he’s gay

A Friend of Tracks

The crest of The Friends of Tracks

Most fans of Generation 1 know a few of the ongoing fan-made conjectures, such as Beachcomber is a hippie, Arcee is kind of a swinger bettern Hot Rod and Springer, and of course, Track seems so very… very… fabulous?

This is a pretty common consideration amongst the Transformers fanbase including a specific group of Botcon-goers that refer to themselves as the Friends of Tracks. The name of this non-official group is based on the assumption that Track is in fact a gay robot. This has trickled out beyond just the hardcore Transformers fan base as indicated by this top 10 I recently found: “The Top Ten Ambiguosly Gay Action Figures.”

Tracks receives the 9 spot on the blog, and it seems rightly so. My favorite part is the description of Raul as a “hot hispanic boy.”

I for one commend the vigor of G1 Tracks and I hope some day he too can feel free to join his human breatheren in celebrating his sexual orientation. Until then, we will continue to raise an eyebrow at the flame-decal toting Corvette of awesome.
