Angry Birds Transformers Telepods Video Review

I review the Angry Birds Transformer two-pack of Sentinel Prime and Bludgeon and the Energon Racers 5-pack with Grimlock, Optimus Prime, Starscream, Lockdown and Soundwave.

The toys are simple, but they unlock some neat features within the game, not the least of which is fully restoring health instantly, without using those precious coins.

Hoist’s Top Ten Transformers – TF: Animated

Welcome to Hoist’s Top Ten Transformers series! In these articles, I will be showing off the top ten transformers figures from my collection. The top ten from each toy line will be chosen and the series will culminate in an overall top ten.

Honestly, I’m not that big a fan of the Scavengers. Don’t get me wrong, I like them, but their story has kind of been a throwaway for me so far since it hasn’t really contributed anything to the main story of the comic. I might change my mind if they ever manage to bring themselves and Grimlock into the fold of the main story. But I have to pick one, so I’ll pick Spinister. This big, dumb, trigger-happy bot really brought a smile to my face every time I saw him on the page.

He’s simple minded and violent – almost the Decepticon equivalent of the G1 Dinobots. That being the case, I thought it was fitting that the group ended up finding Grimlock and have taken him in a part of their group, even if it’s only as an insurance policy right now.

Probably the biggest reason I chose Spinister – I still have his G1 toy from when I was a kid.
