Transformer of the Day for February 9, 2009


-Faction: Decepticon
-Era: Generation One (1984-1992)

-Function: Warrior
Fear is the Element That Unites All Losers”
-Notable Toy: Henkei (TakaraTomy, 2009)

Notes: Dirge is my favourite seeker and one of my favourite Transformers. Pity he ends up as the short pack in so many assortments like the myclone and Japanese PVC lines, or exclusives to Botcon or Ganbo stores. I even took a stab at a Classics version for TFCon 2007. Death comes to those who don’t make a play for his impending (and colourful!) Henkei release.

  4. [...] the same cannot be said for a number of the non-screen follow-up toys. Given my love of all things Dirge, it’s little surprise that this little wonderful rendition of a Harrier jet would be on my [...]

  5. [...] one for me because he’s one of my favourite Transformers. Such that I actually grabbed the limited Henkei release with the crazy wing colours (and which I actually quite love, even if they are not show-accurate). And of course I have the [...]
