I’m glad to see Fun Pub is capable of remembering that Botcon didn’t begin in 2005, though they seem to only bother doing it when it’s convenient.  It’s a nice Homage to Apelinq, but of course, the mold is nowhere near as great as the Beast Wars Transmetals Voyager Optimus Primal.  The original had silver chrome, but they did use that on his Cyber Key.  I suppose you can’t put metallic paint on just any toy, but it would have been nice to have it on him.  Never been a fan of the silly surf board.

About lmb3

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
