Review – MasterMind Creations KULTUR R-18 (IDW Tarn)

    My first contact with Transformers was in the 1980’s through the UK Marvel comics, followed by the cartoon aired on Sky One. I knew then that I’ve found a story and characters I’d love for life. Through the years I watched all the cartoons and read the multiple comic book iterations, but none (including Marvel) have ever come close to the masterpiece that is IDW’s take on Transformers.

    IDW’s Transformers has a fantastic plot, fabulous characters, great humour and gorgeous art.

    One of their original characters that immediately jumped out at me was Tarn, leader of the Deception Justice Division (DJD).

    He is featured most proeminently in the More than Meets the Eye series, which now is retitled as Lost Light.

    Sadly, or perhaps thankfully, Hasbro doesn’t pay much attention to the Lost Light crew, and thus, there are few toys available that are based off of this comic book series. Thankfully, this gap is being filled by the third-party manufacturers, like MasterMind Creations who created this absolutely gorgeous figure of Kultur (aka. IDW’s Tarn):

RedBubble Printing – Review

   Some time ago I stumbled upon a website, called RedBubble, that —among other things— print custom artworks on T-shirts. Their t-shirts are of really lovely quality and the printing on the fabric is sharp, clear and lasts long with the proper care during washing.

   Two of the designs are of Transformers Prowl (IDW version) and Soundwave (TF Prime version), as well as a design of  the White Walkers from Game of Thrones. I am a great Walker fan and firmly in the camp of the undead. XD

   With the designs done, I ordered my t-shirts from RedBubble.

   The tees arrived promptly and the printing was fabulous. The colours were 99% accurate to what I was seeing on my screen, which delighted me endlessly. Usually, it’s a bit of a challenge to get the colours right in printing, but not with RedBubble.

   Here are a few pictures of the t-shirts:
