Transformers D.O.T.M. – Topspin

A while ago blog buddy Jason Vorhees  http://jasonvorhees.wordpress.com/   sent me a nice little package containing some real cool Transformers figures and since then my interest in them has grown.Now while most people are collecting Prime and Generations , I’m pretty content with the less popular D.O.T.M. movie series line of figures.I do,however,see the gripe most collectors have with them.The lack of paint on some of these deluxe figures is what hurts the line the most IMO and Topspin here is a perfect example.In car mode he shines and the weapons look good on the vehicle.It’s the lack of paint in robot mode that I’m not too thrilled with.There is way too much gray in this figure and it really takes away from the overall design and sculpt.Aside from that he’s an all right figure and will be put on display next to my D.O.T.M. Optimus,Bumblebee and Thundercracker.Enjoy the pics!

 

Newest Addition To My D.O.T.M. TF Collection!

Meet Autobot Topspin!My kids and girlfriend found some of these D.O.T.M. TF on clearance for 5 bucks and picked up a Bumblebee for me.Later it hit them that i already had a Bumblebee figure so they switched it out for  Topspin.This was one figure I really wanted from the D.O.T.M. series because of  the role he played in the movie. Topspin is part of a three man Autobot sub- group called the “Wreckers” and made an appearance along with Leadfoot and Roadbuster later on in the film to provide back up for Optimus and the Autobots.TF  D.O.T.M. is by far my favorite of the three movie releases so this line will  stay on my radar.  I’ll crack this baby open tonight and post about it later on this week 😉
