Planet X PX-06 Vulcan (Grimlock)

Planet X has given the people exactly what they want when it comes to Dinobots. Instead of going in line with Master Piece, and even the Combiner Wars aspects it is staying true to the War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron toy-line.

Initially Planet X did a test to see how many people would be interested in the idea of them re-making Grimlock. Considering overall the toy Hasbro produced is not terrible, even with its empty chest and other tiny problems. Well folks… We got what we asked for…

Here is the first test run… And what we do know about Planet X when they show this stage its not far or much different from here.


Do you enjoy the TFcon last weekend?Here are more pictures of our PX-06 Vulcan including a comparison puctures too.This is not the final design yet.

War for Cybertron Trailer – Flashback Monday!

So Mondays can always be a difficult start for anyone! So lets look back at the original trailer for “War for Cybertron.” And lets never forget what happened on Cybertron many millennium ago.

Custom Plasma Axe

I have had this axe sitting on my desk since before Christmas. Unfortunately I have not had the time to take pictures and paint it until this last week.

My son has been a fan of the War for Cybertron and now Fall of Cybertron lines (we are a little behind.) One thing we have noticed with the toys from these lines is the lack of melee weapons. So I set out to make an axe just for him!

The results I was pretty happy with for the most part. Version 1 of this model was a bit rough and required a lot of sanding on the handle. WFC Optimus hand has a higher fit than most 5mm hands. However once sanded down and painted I noticed no chipping or peeling which is a success! My past works would have this peeling because of being to close to the 5mm fits.

Check it out.

War for Cybertron Optimus Prime

I have been looking and looking and looking and looking… Him being about a few years old now and an excellent figure it was a little bit of a challenge. I was finally able to get a decent deal for about $30 + free shipping on eBay. Typically most $15 deluxe Transformers within a year or two (OR if the line ends…) the price typically doubles. For this guy most of the eBay listings were any where from $30-$50. The “Favored” Deluxe sized Transformers double in price or go for more. (More on this later!)

War for Cybertron Optimus Prime is a “Deluxe” Transformer. However when compared to some Deluxe Fall of Cybertron Optimus Prime you will quickly see that he is actually a little larger.

Without a doubt this Optimus Prime is now one of my favorites. Almost everything about him is awesome. His face sculpt, proportions, even to some extent his Transformation…

Now there is one problem with this figure. His transformation is probably one of the most difficult transformations I have seen to date. Tons of rotating and precise positioning in order to get him exactly right. I did not photograph his vehicle mode yet, but have plans to in the near future.

War for Cybertron Optimus Prime is now my third from the line. (Megatron, Bumblebee, and now Optimus Prime.) I own just about every Fall of Cybertron figure and when these WFC stand up next to them they look pretty dang terrible. Don’t get me wrong! They still have a place, but possibly not for long in my collection.

The quality of WFC figures have a stronger plastic, and are pieced together with higher quality parts.

This figure literally makes the Fall of Cybertron line really seem ridiculous as much as I loved getting the Fall of Cybertron series, however now I can see how much a rip off it was. As the WFC line is SO much better from just looking at the quality to say the least.

War for Cybertron Optimus Prime in my opinion is definitely one of my top 10 Transformer Toys.

If you do not have this figure I would recommend getting him before he becomes even more difficult to get.
