The movie Transformers 2 The Revenge of the Fallen was released at theaters on July 2nd and it’s still going strong. As part of the advertising you will be sure to see all kinds of Transformers merchandise at stores including action figures. Nothing beats the original line of Transformers toys but I get kids at the store asking me what is my favorite one….
It’s clearly Grimlock. Love ’em to death….who doesn’t love a Robot that can transform to a Dinosaur! It’s gotta be cool when Grimlock converts to a T-Rex. Most of the kids who don’t know much about Transformers then ask me where did he appear in the second movie….Never. Hopefully, he will be appearing in the third installment.
Based on the recent TF 2 movie, I would have to say that “Mixmaster” is a pretty cool Transformers. From cement truck to a Decepticon bad-ass Dude, I kind of like this toy.
At 8 inches, the Voyager Class represents the mid-range figures from Hasbro’s Transformers 2 movie toys collection. And Revenge of the Fallen brings with it a whole new line of characters, leading off with an epic new figure: The Fallen. One of only 13 original Transformers, the Fallen is the ultimate nemesis of Autobot leader Optimus Prime. He is the newest of the Transformers 2 Figures and provides an strange ally to those such as Demolishor, Starscream and Megatron, but a worthy for for Prime’s team.

As seen in a couple of our Transformers posts, this year marks the 25th Anniversary of the Robots in disguise and the brand and franchise seem to be stronger than ever! Not only do we get awesome items like the 25th Anniversary, but fans are also fortunate enough to have the Transformers Animated series and an upcoming sequel to the hugely successful film. And speaking of which, let’s check out the trailer (and not just Megan Fox–Or Shia LaBoeuf, over whom many do seem to be swooning):
But live-action isn’t all there is, and some of the die-hard fans still resent what Michael Bay has done to their favourite Autobots and Decepticons. So for those who are only slight purists (we have nothing for those who accept nothing but Gen 1), there’s Transformers Animated.
In the spirit of the original series, we see pairings of man and machine united against the evil Decepticons, but this time played out in a style that’s dynamic, unique to the series and definitely visually stunning. It took some time for me to warm up to the show, but the current storylines are stellar and I have a feeling it’ll be around for quite a while longer.
Naturally, since toys are where it all because for the Transformers, I should also mention the massive collection we’ve got over in our online store. You can head over there to check out the entire line, but here are a couple shortcuts to the specific sections to speed up your search for that one special robot…
