grimlock is a growing dinobot - my toys are alive 13

This is the 13th comic from my old comic series, My Toys are Alive!

All that candy can’t be good for Grimlock! But maybe it isn’t bad, either. This comic was made and posted originally a few days after Christmas 2011, hence the tiny Christmas trees and the candy. Grimlock is always looking for candy in my apartment and usually just takes a tiny nibble or so before Prowl or someone else stops him, but this time he gets to consume an entire overflowing jar.

But is there something special in that jar of candy? Why is it labeled ‘Do not eat!’? Hmm!

grimlock is a growing dinobot - my toys are alive 13 transformers fan comics featuring dinobot grimlock candy and prowl

Hope you enjoyed the comic!


Post-comic notes:

Hasbro Masterpiece Grimlock was gifted to me by a very good friend during my birthday in 2010. He is a huge Grimlock fan, and the only Transformers toys he collects are anything Grimlock-related. I can’t exactly remember when it was, but for sometime he wasn’t having any luck finding a Titanium War Within Grimlock, and I got it for him on his birthday.

He often asked me why I wouldn’t buy the Masterpiece Grimlock, and I would say that only Optimus Prime is allowed to be “the big guy” among my bots. I guess he got tired of trying to convince me to buy one for myself and got me one himself as “payback” for me finding him a War Within Grimlock. :-P

Anyway, I thought that evolving my old Hasbro deluxe-sized Grimlock to the Masterpiece one would be a good move for the comic. G1 godzilla-like Grimlock looks more amusing than the Hasbro/Takara deluxe-sized one.

Oh, and this is now the last of the My Toys are Alive replays! It will be all new comics and stories from now on, though I may still post up old 1-panel oldies as I find them in my files. My toys have piled up since then (ouch, my wallet…) and boy, can they get unruly when they aren’t being featured or photographed.

I’ve also decided that there will be more than just stories and comics in this blog. I may just post up toy picture features or unboxings once in a while when things in my life get too busy.

toy showcase: kre-o microchangers combiners - constructicon devastator

I *love* the Kre-O microchangers series. And when they came out with 4 packs of combiner/gestalt goodness? I had to rush to the nearest Toys R Us the moment there was confirmed sighting of their stock arrival.Now, I understand that there are Transformers fans out there who are rather disappointed with this series - they'd rather see more awesome bots and figures being produced by Hasbro. I am not against them, cooler bot toys would be awesome, too. But I do love me some Lego minifig-style bots. They're easy to play with and bring around and take silly pictures with!There are a total of 4 different Combiner packs so far: Decepticon Bruticus, Constructicon Devastator, Predaking, and Superion. That's 3 Decepticon gestalts versus 1 Autobot gestalt. Not fair, Hasbro! :P But whatever, I guess they went by popularity? I don't know.Here are the main covers of the boxes:And the front flaps that showcase the individual Kreon bots:Notice how they only make use of 4 bots for each …

fun with a personal bat signal

On my second viewing of The Dark Knight Rises (awesome movie, by the way!), the cinema was selling a popcorn and soda combo that came with a projector pen. Yes, I am well aware that cinema popcorn is highway robbery in disguise. But I like my movie munchies, so there. :P Anyway, about that projector pen -- I thought it would just be a random pen with a flashlight on one end, and the writing tip on the either, except that since this is a TDKR promo, it would have a Batman logo on the side.When I got home and tried the flashlight out, it projected a Dark Knight Rises Bat logo! Freaking awesome! I now have a personal mini bat signal. :D Woot!Batman and Robin were more than willing to pose with the new toy.Here’s Batman with a solo, err, trio shot of bats.Even Catwoman wanted in on the action. Something about black also being her color, and loving shadows and being adaptable. Yeah, something like that.She actually wanted her close-up picture featured instead, but she was in a frantic hurr…
