Review — MasterMind Creations CYNICUS R-12 (IDW Vos)

     Another Transformers toy review, and again from Master Mind Creations.

    Cynicus is based on Vos, another member of the Decepticon Justice Devision, from IDW’s More Than Meets the Eye/Lost Light comic book series.

    Vos is a creepy little con, who transformers into an awesome sniper-rifle, speaks only in Primal Vernacular and having a habit —or rather, hobby— of making others ‘wear his face’.

     In his rifle mode he is mostly wielded by other members of the DJD, but there is one panel showing him wielded by Megatron himself at some point during the war.

     As with all of their toys, MasterMind Creations have done an outstanding job on Cynicus! Beautiful detailing, great paint job, fun transformation and, above all, faithful representation of the comic book character.

    One thing stands out about this character far above all other Transformers toys that I possess: it is, by far, the most posable TF toy I’ve ever come across. It’s mind blowing how many poses I could achieve with it, and how easy it is to pose him. But I am getting ahead of myself.

    As with Tarn, he comes packaged in a lovely box, containing a short comic doubling as an instruction booklet, as well as, a collector’s card.

Review — RedBubble Printing

   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.

   Thus, a few weeks ago, I started work on a couple of designs of my own for printing with RedBubble. Using their guidelines I created the following three designs:

 

 

 

   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:
