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):
Kultur comes in a deceptively small box. This is due to the fact that he is shipped in his vehicle mode, which is more compact than his considerably larger robot mode.
