A long overdue post; Transformers!
Transformers Alternators Mirage, who is a Ford GT.
Mirage with Grimlock (who transforms into a 2006 Ford Mustang GT.)
And now, for some 1:18 scale knockoffs; a Toyota Celica and a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX.
Toyota family, left to right: MR2, Supra, Celica, Land Cruiser
The knock-offs have more detachable kibble, and weapons that light up. Respect to them Chinese imitations!
Argh the light!
Back to originals: Transformers Cybertron Excellion (which is homage to Hot Rod) and Transformers Energon Powerlink Rodimus.
Excellion is a handsome robot, yes he is, next to clunky Rodimus.
I also found the rare Transformers Cybertron Soundwave. He even has a catridge-loading mechanism!
Stealth fighter jet, he now is.
His catridges transform into two weapons, and…
There are also mini versions of Excellion and Soundwave, with limited articulation, of course.
“Hey I’m parking here!” (Mini Excellion in Transformers Alternators Sideswipe, a Dodge Viper, to mini Soundwave in Transformers Alternators Windcharger, a Honda S2000.)
The token cheesy fake-background shot.
Transformers Classics Astrotrain points his rifle at the Takara reissue of Astrotrain. (I thought this was the only Transformers Classics release worth getting so far.)
They both transform into space shuttles… (spot the rubsigns!)
…and trains! I prefer the original Astrotrain’s steam-engine train design though.
