Transformer of the Day for April 30, 2009


-Faction: Decepticon
-Era: Generation One (1984-92)

-Function: City Commander
-Motto: My Power Is Everything; Defeat is Absurd”
-Notable Toy: Reissue (Takara, 2005)

Notes: While I don’t quite agree with how every Megatron in the multiverse must at some point become Galvatron (and in the case of the Unicron trilogy, become him again and again and again), I love the original character. I love the figure and the transformation, the skilled warrior (in the movie) and the lunatic leader (in the cartoon). And it was more than gratifying to have him finally reproduced in proper colours in 2005.


Can you believe we’re a third of the way through the year already? I can scarely believe that we’ve gone through four months of transformers, a total of 120 ‘formers in all, and there are still so many good characters and toys ahead.

And away we go!
