Grimlock is the powerful leader of the Dinobots. At his core he is believes in defending the innocent and Autobot ideals, but his methods sometimes shock his fellow Autobots! Check out my review of "Power of the Primes" Grimlock!


Shockdrive and Warnado are enough trouble for the Autobots individually, but when they crash combine they form the powerful Shocknado who uses his electricity based powers to fry his enemy's circuits! Start your day off with a look at my review of "Robots in Disguise" Shocknado!


Honorable, brave and valiant, Silverbolt embodies a lot of the ideals of the Maximals. Unfortunately he is sometimes a bit too trusting and naive which can lead him into a world of trouble! Today I have restored my review of "Beast Wars" Silverbolt complete with new commentary and photos!

While many of his fellow Dinobots are surly, Swoop is much more good natured and positive. However his beast mode terrifies his enemies, something he takes full advantage of as he blasts them from the sky! Today I bring you my review of "Power of the Primes" Dinobot Swoop!

Happy New Year to all of our Transformers: Earth Wars community!

Fight and Die

A special kind of spark brightens Kup’s eyes as he remembers that day…

Traitor by nature, Starscream stands over what’s left of his former master. Smashed and broken -but still fearless and hardened- Megatron offers him what he always wanted: an opportunity to show his worth.

Meanwhile, Motormaster storms the Autobots base in an all-in attack. Defeat seems certain and final… but nothing is certain when facing the might of the Autobots.

If there is one thing Triggerhappy has it is enthusiasm. As he fires his weaponry he is always laughing like a maniac paying very little attention to what he is actually hitting. My "Legends" reviews continue with a look at Targetmaster Triggerhappy with Blowpipe!


A few days ago Empire Online released a first look image from the upcoming "Bumblebee" movie starring Hailee Steinfeld. Now thanks to Paramount BWTF now has a high quality version of the image showing Hailee Steinfeld with Bumblebee in vehicle mode. He is not a Chevrolet Camaro but rather a VW bug.
