Alternator Hot Rod (SDCC 2007 Exclusive)


Alternator Hot Rod (San Diego Comic-Con 2007 Exclusive)

While my stuff from SDCC hasn't arrived, the package from HasbroToyShop has.

While I won't be transforming him any time soon, I can definitely say he looks boring compared to my KISS Play Hot Rod.

I just like the white stripes on the car instead of the more gimmicky flames. But at least he's different and not just a straight up Hasbro release of the Takara version.

And I'll never warm to the Rodimus or Rodimus Major name. He'll remain Hot Rod here in the Attic!

Alternator Hot Rod is the 1977th Transformer that I've acquired.

Hasbro 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime


Hasbro 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime

20th Anniversary Optimus Prime is the 1844th Transformer that I've acquired.

The greatest weapon ever created.



Shockwave becomes a gun.

And Megatron becomes a gun.

And Browing becomes a gun.

(cover your kid's eyes)

KISS Player Autolooper


Autorooper and his awesome Traffic Cone Gun

Autolooper has finally arrived!!!

Alas, Takara/Tomy has decided not to give him proper license plates out-of-the-box.

In fact, I have to put all his stickers on him.

I really really really hate putting stickers on toys. I always fuck them up and once you do you are damned for all time.

KISS Player Autolooper is the 1822nd Transformer that I've acquired.

Alternator Mirage


Alternator Mirage

I came across a Mirage today. He's the first I've ever seen in the wild.

And man is his quality poor. His face vents are damaged (see above) and there's glue on certain parts that made him really hard to transform.

The face damage is a shame though since I consider his head sculpt to be one of the, if not the best, Transformer heads ever done.

Mirage is the 1795th bot added to the Attic of Love.

My Stern life and my TF life just unexpectedly crashed into a head-on collision of disastrous proportions.

There's nothing worse than listening to Howard Stern do a live ad for the Transformers 20th anniversary DVD and Howard not knowing a damn thing about what he's reading.

He then lists off all of the people who did voices and asks why the hell he has never heard of this film. Howard then asked Robin what the hell Transformers the movie is and she really doesn't know but says it is robots that transform into things.

Gary then jumps on a mic and trys to explain but even he doesn't know but he says his kids like Transformers.

What a cluster fuck of an ad.

Man oh man Sirius could have provided them with a bit more info, or at least scripted the live ad a bit better.


TakaraTomy KISS Player Hot Rod


TakaraTomy KISS Player Hot Rod

TakaraTomy KISS Player Hot Rod is the 1764th Transformer that I've acquired.

I think per square inch of plastic he's probably the most expensive too. Way too damn expensive for a non-die-cast figure.

But what's a loser to do.

Alternators Optimus Prime


Alternators Optimus Prime

Ok. So I've never opened the one that Giga found for me a while back.

Hell. I've never actually seen any of these on retail shelves until today and since he's been kinda rare I got one to finally open.

Honestly I'm no fan of the bot mode and since I have Masterpiece Convoy I consider him my "Optimus Prime" for the Binaltech/Alternator line.

So I've decided that this guy will indeed be the Ginrai of my group. Hell, that's what he was originally going to be in Japan before Takara merged with Tomy and birthed the KISS Player abomination so why not.

Plus he'll stay in truck mode as well.

Alternators Optimus Prime is the 1736th Transformer that I've ever purchased.
