Swerve, Soundwave, Skywarp and Perceptor

Yep more galleries of toys to come. They include Swerve (that I have seen at Target), a black repaint of Soundwave (sheesh how many repaints does he need?), Masterpiece Skywarp in packaging, and Perceptor.

Swerve - Red repaint of Sideswipe that remains one of the best designs from the ROTF line
Masterpiece Skywarp - Was a Japan only exclusive, now will be available in Wal-Mart stores in a few months. It’s simply a repaint of Masterpiece Starcream from a few years ago. If you don't already have that toy, this one should easily be at the top of your purchase list.
Black Soundwave - Not sure but this could be an E-Hobby exclusive so will not be cheap. A repaint of the deluxe toy. The image to the right is from here.
Perceptor in Packaging - Exclusive to Toys R Us, Commemorative Series G1 Perceptor is a re-release of the toy from nearly 25 years ago. This had been previously released in Japan only about three years ago as part of their "bookcase" series (#19 I believe).

Of note, this is the 2,000th post on the blog. Lot of writing over the last four years and probably more to go. (source)


  1. keep'em comming I know tranformers news is alittle slow now but that doesn't stop me from checking this site 2 or 3 times a day!


  3. I have a toy related question. I have been researching the Arcee bikes online and the potential combiner aspect. They have to combine, it is the only explanation for their wonky robot modes. I understand that the third bike (Moonracer?) hasn't been released and might not. Does anyone have any info or has anyone attempted to assemble Arcee and Chromia?

  4. Attn all TRANSFORMERS fans in the New York/ New Jersey area. Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, NJ, will be showing "TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN" on their IMAX DOME screen for a limited engagement starting this Friday Aug.7. It is the LARGEST IMAX DOME SCREEEN IN THE WORLD! Don't believe me?, come on down and see for yourself. Log on to for more info.

  5. Wow! Nice blog. I liked it.
