Our Site

  • Our slowdown continues after the end of Transformers Animated in 2009, due to work commitments combined with buying less toys (as we weren’t that keen on the Movie figures).

  • We hold another toy display at Auto Assembly, this time Japanese G1 Exclusives

Toy Focus for the Year
The toy we are focusing on for 2010 is Transformers Hunt for the Decepticons Seaspray.  Although this figure is oversized and not really G1 accurate it is a really nice toy in it's own right, and a nice modern day representation of Seaspray.  Hovercraft Transformers are few and far between and HTFD Seaspray is one of the best.  His larger scale allows him to carry scout figures and he is a pretty cool, and farily popular toy.  We are suprised that Seaspray hasn't year featured in the Transformers Combiner Wars line however.
