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.

Ford F-150 SVT Raptor

I am an avid chevy fan but it seems they have fallen off for the past year or so and Ford has held on strongly. I’m not a fan of Ford products, usually they are too much plastic or feels like they will fall apart but for once they have made an extremely appealing product. The Blue Oval has been talking about the SVT Raptor for over a year now, an off-road extreme straight from the manufacturer and it is as good as it looks.

Starting at around $42,000 the 6.2-liter V8 for the Raptor has been officially rated at 411 hp at 5,500 rpm and 434 pound-feet at 4,500 rpm. It has a lot of components for off-road use and can pretty much handle anything you throw at it. Hopefully more car companies will take on Ford’s cue and create for amazing specialized vehicles, as it seems they already have a lot of orders for this expensive truck.

Toyota Tundra Ducati Desmosedici Transporter with 500HP

A beautiful truck crafted for an amazing motorcycle, Toyota collaborated with Ducati to create the perfect transporter to handle all the tools and gear needed for any racer. And this Toyota Tundra was created for the Ducati Desmosedici RR, with its custom extended 6.5inch it can do that and more. A motorized loading ramp is incorporated into the bed as well as integrated tool and spares storage. Modifications to the car such a supercharger bump it up to 500 bhp and 500-lbs/ft of torque with the Ducati paint job and white stripes. I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on this vehicle! What a beautiful machine!

Truck Stolen

I got a call from my friend in the States late at night, something seemed up and he told me that my truck wasn’t home when he got home. He was shocked he called a friend of ours who had the spare keys other then him, but nobody moved the truck for two weeks now. I’m in shock, I’m not sure who would be able to steal something of that size. Now I’m just waiting to hear back from my friend, he was in shock and he is very pissed since he lives in a very nice area so its surprising that this could happen. I’m very pissed right now and I want to kill someone, and I know I’m going to have a huge fight with the insurance company, they don’t cover any of the modifications.
