Transformers Generations Rattrap

Presenting Transformers Generations Rattrap.

We're not really fans of the current incarnation of Rattrap. We prefer his incarnation in the animated series where he was something of an equivalent to Bumblebee.

Now he's like ... Starscream to Megatron. A schemer waiting in the shadows, but serving Starscream the First, faithfully ... for now.

This is actually an old shoot that we never were able to prep and post on-line.

It seemed like such a shame to let it go to waste, so even if Transformers Generations Rattrap isn't quite relevant anymore, we decided to put him up.

He's one of the coolest Generations figures after all.

Marvel Legends Thundra

Presenting the  head of the United Sisterhood Empire of North America, Thundra!

If you've got abs, flaunt them.

To the uninitiated, Thundra is a visitor to the mainstream Marvel Universe from a future alternate time-line where Earth is now known as Femizonia and is ruled by Amazon like female warriors.

Thundra came to the mainstream Marvel Universe to challenge the Thing and prove the dominance of women by beating the one male whom the Femizonias viewed as the most powerful in the 616 Earth - which is ironic since we know from the latest Fantastic Four movie, that the Thing lacks a specific male part.

Thundra would eventually become something of an anti-hero in the Marvel Universe. Thundra would stand toe-to-toe with the Hulk, become the head of the United Sisterhood Empire of North America, fall in love with the Thing, but eventually give her heart to another Earth 616 interdimensional visitor, Arkon the Magnificent, ruler of Polemachus, and become mother to the She-Hulk (Lyra). Thundra will join the Squadron Supreme when the dust settles from the on-going Secret Wars.

Star Wars Trade Federation Armored Assault Tank - AAT

Presenting a Trade Federation Amoured Assault Tank or AAT. You may remember these from the Battle of Naboo, but hopefully not with the image of Jar-Jar Binks hanging from one (shudder). 


To the uninitiated, this is the Trade Federation Armored Assault Tank 1 or AAT-1 or simpl AAT was the main battle tank of the Separatist Confederacy (Confederacy of Independent Systems). It was developed by Wat Tambor's Baktoid Armor Workshop - the same people that built Battle Droids, Super Battle Droids, MMTs, STAPs, and your average Spider-droid.

Combiner Wars Optimus Maximus

Presenting the Transformers Combiner Wars Optimus Maximus!

Or.... The Combiner Wars Sunstreaker, Mirage, Jazz and Ironhide, combined with The Combiner Wars Optimus Prime that has been modified with Reprolabels and further modified with the Perfect Effect Combiner PC-01 Black Hand and Foot Upgrade.

So it's a heavily modified Optimus Maximus.

No the Matrix does not glow, the Reprolabels  are reflective and just caught the light perfectly.

Anyway, Hasbro/Takara decided to go all Bio-Man on Optimus Prime. Since we're not fans of the rainbow coalition (They should have made Hound a member instead of Prowl. Hound is green and the new Optimus prime is white so it would have completed the Bio-Man prism) we're slightly more fond of the Optimus/Aerialbots gestalt.
