Toysday: Mastermind Big'uns/Big Guns

     Both of these next Guys are thanks to the excellent folks at the Chosen Prime.I was astonished at the massiveness of both of these in hand and even in package. Somewhere between a big voyager and a leader in size.


     I have good memories of Roadbuster as a kid- that funky orange/green/brown paint scheme. He was a gift...maybe from my ex-brother-in law, who for all his selfishness, managed to do a few cool things for me.

     My G1 Roadbuster is long gone- I have the DOTM Roadbuster, the Generations line Voyager Roadbuster, and ...this.

R-23 Dicamus




     And now, the newest release- IDW Thunderclash

R-33 Collisus

Toysday: When Dinosaurs Ruled the Shelves Part 2

     In Part 1 we discussed the Hasbroaceous era. Now we Skip onward to Planet X's Fall of Cybertron styled Dinobots, and there are six. Planet X has some truly amazing engineering, although some occasional QC issues mar this. Nevertheless, they are a great, fun part of my collection. There is fantastic posability in Robot mode, and even good posability in Dino mode/ They look amazing in both modes.

    Some of these have shown up here before, but now I have the lot...


Caelus- FOC Swoop


Neptune- FOC Sludge



Summanus- FOC Snarl


Quirinus- FOC Slug/Slag


Vulcun- FOC Grimlock



Triton- FOC Paddles
(incidentally the only paddles toy ever made)
FOC Cappy
