Takara Tomy - Starscream (ROTF)

F-22 Raptor Aircraft in Vehicle Mode...

In Robot Mode...

Starscream in ROTF series is definitely an improved version as compared to the 2007 movie series. The aircraft in vehicle mode looks "unique" when the "so-called tattoos" are painted on the body this time round. When in robot mode, the two parts I like the most are its movie accurate head sculpt and detailed chest parts of the body. When turning its head, it activates the orange colour moving gears around the chest areas. I guess this is a "bonus" given to me. The only part I don't like for the figure is the feet which are too small. Anyway, this is still a great figure to have for collection. You may also view the transformation via Peaugh's video here.

Enterbay - "Burrows & Scofield" in Prison Break

(Picture Source: Enterbay's Blog)

Holy S-h-i-t!! Enterbay is going to release my favourite characters in "Prison Break". I am wondering on the techniques Enterbay use to paint the tattoos on the torso of the figure. Looking forward to see their head sculpts as well...

Land of the Lost

The movie plot was bad. Most of the jokes were dry and expected and sometimes really dumb. I can feel the movie company tried very hard to make the story funny and exciting (by adding a T-Rex dinosaur chase), but still not up to my expectation. The only part that was "gross" to me is when the male lead was bitten by a mosquito and nothing caught my attention from the rest of the story. Anyway, this is one of the worst movies I have ever watched this year and my movie rating is 1.5/5.

Hasbro - Chromia (ROTF)

In Motorcycle Mode...

with Figure Stand...

Figure Stand becomes Snap-On Cycle Cannons!!

In Robot Mode...

Initially, I don't like Chromia as she is a motorcycle and I found she looks weird when in her robot mode. After watching the movie, I changed my view and decided to get this figure. Her left arm looks very cool with spinning gears and launching missile. Chromia also looks nice when we display her with figure stand. Anyway, you may watch the transformation via Peaugh's video here.

Will Hot Toys issue another version of MJ collectible figures this year?

It was sad to hear the sudden death of Michael Jackson earlier this morning. Due to this incident, most of the Ebay sellers have increased the price of its related mechandise, toys and collectibles today. Since Hot Toys had issued 12inch Michael Jackson collectible figures in Billie Jean version, will Hot Toys issue another version of Michael Jackson collectible figures this year?

AcTiVision - Transformers ROTF (PSP UMD)

Wow!! See both head sculpts from Enterbay, awesome right??

Hasbro - Ransack (ROTF)

In Biplane Mode...

In Robot Mode...

After watching Optibotimus Video here, I decided to get this figure. Ransack was obviously not in the movie and it's just one of the Scout Class figures released for ROTF toy series.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

There are more robots with human alliance, more fighting scenes with gunshots and explosions in the battle fields. The battle scenes are more spectacular than the first instalment. I love watching the process of transformation either from the Autobots or Decepticons. The new Decepticons are amazing especially the "Devastator" and majority of them are huge in size. Sideswipe is super cool and Bumblebee is "fierce" this time round. Surprisingly, Blackout is back and still, no sight of Barricade. There was a scene which I like the most is the part when Optimus tried to save Sam and fought with Starscream, Megatron and Blackout. But that was the sad part in the story as well. Nothing much from "Jetfire" which I expect it will play an important role in the movie. I also enjoyed the ending part when Optimus took body parts of Jetfire to upgrade its fire power for the final battle with Fallen. Megan Fox is still hot and sexy, and she looks mature than before. Anyway, it is a MUST watch movie and I love it very much. Will watch the movie again (should be few days later). Also looking forward to get the DVD and my movie rating for this one is 4/5.
