Toy Review: "Transformers Generations" Orion Pax

in Autobot, Deluxe, Generation One, Generations, News

Long before the Autobos were led by the wise and powerful Optimus Prime, there was Orion Pax. No less heroic than his Autobot leader persona, this Autobot faithfully served in the Autobot security forces, ensuring Decepticon plots were foiled wherever they would appear! Check out my review of Orion Pax!

Toy Review: "Transformers Generations" Trailcutter

in Autobot, Deluxe, Generation One, Generations, News

Trailcutter considers himself a cheerleader among the Autobots. He always has an encouraging word or a joke to share to help keep spirits up. Deep down inside however, he sometimes worries he's just a burden because of his high fuel consumption, but other Autobots respect his abilities including his powerful force fields! Start your week off checking out my review of "Generations" Trailcutter.

Movie News: "Clevver Movie" video - Michael Bay responds to Hugo Weaving's "Megatron" comments

in News

Recently actor Hugo Weaving (aka Megatron in the feature films) made comments about his role as Megatron. Director Michael Bay has now fired back. More after the video embed.

My opinion? I think both Bay and Weaving are right. Weaving's role was a simple ADR role with lines that he didn't even understand, which is no surprise. It was a quick paycheck. Why would that have any deep meaning? That said - he probably could've been a bit more gracious in his phrasing.
