Sonokong Big Convoy Mammoth Optimus Prime

Sonokong Big Convoy Mammoth Optimus Prime
I'm not a Shellformer, this is all armor
Welcome to a review of the Sonokong Big Convoy AKA the Mammoth Optimus Prime from the Super Life-Form Transformers Beast Wars Neo (Is it just us or do the Japanese - and Koreans - really like long names?)

Before Hasbro got lazy and created a modern generation of Transformers "Shellformers", there was this guy.

The literal king of kibble.

This is what it means to be a "Shellformer"

To the uninitiated, Sonokong's Big Convoy is also known simply as "Big" or "Slammoth". He bears the title of Supreme Commander of the Maximals (It's a military title). But unlike other Supreme Commanders who are level-headed and friendly, Big Convoy is a "One-Man-Army" with teamwork issues and a penchant for simply destroying what is in front of him with his Big Cannon.

Bre Poisonne Cosplay

We recently came across a Cosplayer from Canada who calls herself Bre Poisonne on Instagram, and seriously, she has skills and the background to actually BE a real super-hero. Why? Here are her qualifications:
  • Circus Performer
  • Performs Aerial Acrobatics, specifically Aerial Hoops
  • Part-time model
  • Owns a ferret 
Need we say more?

Iron Factory IF EX-14 Ultimate Commander God Ginrai / Optimus Prime Review

Iron Factory IF EX-14 Ultimate Commander God Ginrai / Optimus Prime Review
Welcome to a quick review of the IF EX-14 Ultimate Commander - not God Ginrai or Optimus Prime depending upon the mode - from Iron Factory.

The early release packs of the Ultimate Commander from Iron Factory came with a nice bonus: IF EX-16A Alleria, The Lady Commander - AKA Arcee (Only NOT Arcee :) And not to be confused with their just announced EX-016 Pink Assassin which looks sooo coool) which is a very nice bonus from Iron Factory.

Iron Factory built the IF-EX04 City Commander figure. Feedback for this NOT-Ultra Magnus was favorable because Iron Factory built him to be compatible with the Transformers Generations Metroplex.

So they went and built an Optimus Prime.

Team Thor: Part. 2

Marvel just released another video showcasing the continuing plight of the mortal Darryl Jacobson, roommate of the Mighty Thor. Highlights include:

  • The Odinson is a douche who thinks that he's covered in brains. No wonder he's unworthy.
  • We think Darryl should be a bit more open here:
    • If a "god" from another dimension pays you in coin from his realm (They look like buttons, but who knows?) Perhaps you should have the metal tested first. You could be sitting on a fortune. At the very least the Agents of SHIELD will compensate you for them as they "Might be dangerous"
    • Same thing with the pumpkin - assuming he didn't get it from Earth.
This series really cracks us up and we're looking forward to Part 3 when they get a servant.

GI Joe 50th Anniversary Bazooka Action Figure Quick Review

GI Joe 50th Anniversary Bazooka Action Figure Quick Review
Yeah, I'll kaboom tank
Welcome to a quick review of the GI Joe 50th Anniversary Bazooka Action Figure.

Sergeant David L. Katzenbogen, from Hibbing, Minnesota was an Abrams tank-driver in the Third Horde (US Third Armored Division) when he realized that his multi-million dollar tank could be destroyed by some idiot walking around with a rocket launcher that was only worth a few hundred dollars. He put in for transfer after that.

Personally we feel he forgot about the part where the farmer has to walk. That, and this is no longer WWII where tanks relied purely on line-of-sight. Sneaking up on a modern tank today is much much harder. Then there's the range and improved armor.

But whatever makes him happy.
