Transformers Prime – Beast Hunters – Predacons Rising

Chronicles the epic battle between the Decepticons and the Autobots in their mission to defend Earth and one day restore their home planet of Cybertron.

This is a sweet ending to the Transformers Prime series, it has been an amazing series with a fantastic storyline development with this 60 minute movie being the perfect final twist. With the end of the series I wasn’t satisfied but with this I was, but I can’t get enough of Peter Cullen, his voice will forever be the guiding voice of Optimus Prime. I couldn’t believe the ending, but I won’t ruin it for anyone but it was a hell of a final battle. I hope that Transformers continue on its success with the new movie and then another animation comes out, since this new one has a lot based on the next stage of the Transformers. If you enjoyed the series you will love this short movie.

Ironhide & Sentinel Prime By Frenzy Rumble

IS01

After so long a wait I finally got my hands on the custom Ironhide and Sentinel Prime by Frenzy Rumble. It was well worth the wait, but I hope next time its 3-6 months not over a year, but these are some very cool models. They look battle damaged, Ironhide looks big with those guns strapped to his arms, but I have to say that the detail on Sentinel Prime is impressive, gun in one hand and shield on the other.

They are the same scale models from Hasbro and the details were taken to another level by Frenzy_Rumble, he is known in his field and luckily enough I got these two from him. Now Sentinel Prime & Ironhide stand tall right next to my Takara Optimus Prime line up, I love the way they look and the detail that have been put into them. They have LED lights in their eyes and some of their weapons, you can tell that from looking at a few of the pictures.

IS03

The issue with FrenzyRumble from my previous post in November has finally come to an end, things have finally worked out with Mike. I got my models, and he explained his situation and at the time even offered to refund me the amounts I paid, but I really wanted the models and I was willing to go down that road and so we got to this juncture. And thankfully I have my Ironhide & Sentinel Prime, and they do look good on my shelf.

Review: Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A

Having lived with this laptop for about three months now, I can safely say it is without question the best PC laptop I’ve ever owned. Every review out there just raves about this machine. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Retina-esque 1920×1080 resolution in an amazingly high quality 13.3″ IPS display
  • Intel’s latest 17 watt Ivy Bridge processor with (finally!) decent integrated graphics
  • 128 GB SSD with fast 6Gbps interface
  • Just under 3 pounds
  • Decent 5 to 6 hour runtime
  • Classy brushed metal case and cover

Pros:

  • The best ultrabook currently out there, it seems Asus just keeps stepping it up, if you are looking for a thin powerful Windows laptop then this is it.
  • 4.5 to 5.5 hours battery life with full media use
  • Amazing Screen, Very Bright and clear Details
  • Light Up Keyboard, and a very nice feel to it
  • The SSD & Processor are insanely fast, about a 17 second boot time from scratch and 5 seconds from sleep. These are numbers we wouldn’t even dream of before.
  • I love the aluminum clean cut finish of the Zenbook, surprisingly it doesn’t get too hot
  • it has just enough ports to make it useful
  • With the USB 3.0 I managed transfers of 100 to 130 MB/s from my External Seagate HD
  • The best thing is the price as well, its an amazing machine for $1299 and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an ultrabook

Cons:

  • The only downfall is the annoying sensitivity of the touch pad
  • Windows 7 that came wwith the ASUS was the home version and had bloatware, so I decided to do a clean install which worked perfectly, and it booted even faster, it is up and running within 12 to 17 seconds, nice and smooth.

Specifications:

  • Intel Core i7 -3517U 2.4GHz
  • Widows 7 64bit Unlimited (I reinstalled it because of the bloatware)
  • 4GB Ram
  • 128 GB SSD
  • Intel HD Graphics

Simple Conclusion:

I love this laptop and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a thin and powerful windows laptop. I started using it everywhere, I take it everywhere with me and it has taken a few odd drops with no issues at all. Its fast, lightening fast and it boots up within seconds, I can’t recommend it enough, and the price honestly is very reasonable.

Transformers Takara – Optimus Prime MP4

I have had this in a box for over two years hidden in my closet, I got the full set of Takara Transformers over the years, getting one model after the other. So to start it off I decided to open the Optimus Prime Convoy MP4, I have always wondered what it would feel like and how cool it would look.

I was completely wrong it looked so much better then I expected. Optimus Prime felt so realistic and heavy, he is made out of PVC plastic and metal. The build quality is better than one expects from a toy model and since I had a few others to unbox later I decided to transform him into vehicle mode which wasn’t too difficult, even though there were a few moments that brute force was required and I didn’t feel like being patient. After 20 minutes Optimus Prime was in vehicle mode and I was extremely ecstatic looking at the set on the shelf, I’m looking forward opening the other boxes soon.

Review: Transformers Prime

Transformers: Prime is a computer-animated television series that premiered on The Hub on November 2010 with a five-part mini-series, which will be followed by a full season in February 2011. There are 26 episodes scheduled for the first season and another three seasons have been outlined by the screenwriters.

For a CGI animated cartoon it turned out much better then I expected, and they don’t waste any time and jump right into the thick of the story. Optimus Prime at the throat of Megatron with a lot at stake. This is part of the continuing storyline and I hope more autobots show up, I enjoy when they kick Decipticon ass. The first five part miniseries was a lot of fun, I’m going to be looking forward to the upcoming season.

Transformers: Prime – Trailers

I can never get enough Transformers, I do watch the animated show in Cartoon Network and its fun. The recent show was just new, and now they are coming up with a new one which seems to be more adult oriented and I like the computerish design to these characters. Check out the multiple trailers, so many of them. Too bad this is only a 5 part miniseries, I would want this to be a full series. I honestly want to see more of Rodimus, he is still one of my favorite characters from the original Transformers Animated movie from the 80s.
