The Second San Pablo Comics Festival is a celebration of Philippine comics where one can buy independently produced Filipino comic books (as well as imported ones) and meet the people who create them!

There will be a comics art exhibit, art contest, writer and artist signings, comic book sales, mini- tutorials, mini seminars, panel discussions and many more!

San Pablo too far away? Think of it as a vacation! Think of it as getting away from it all! Think of it as decentralizing Manila and spreading the comics love to the provinces! Plus, you'll get an AWESOME view!

See you there!

RoTF Bludgeon Gets Reviewed!

11.11.2009 - Check out what's the latest action figure to be reviewed this month. We feature the RoTF Bludgeon as the Transformer of of the month. If your having a second thought our resident TransFan Miko Matsing aka Eisen in the TF forums gives us his insight on the famed master of the Metallikato. You read more and discuss about it at our connections:



new Prototype found of Frenzy/Rumble-type robot.

picture found here.

an image surfaced showing what appears to be a classics style frenzy/rumble prototype that fans speculate as either an official hasbro prototype or another fansproject not unlike the voyager sized MP prime or the new Deluxe Springer figure seen a few months back.

    appearing to be scout in size and a well detailed sculpt that updates the look of the classic G1 cassetticons Frenzy and Rumble, it is still unclear if in any way this figure can interact with the classics ravage released last year or if this is any indication of a classics soundwave any time in the future.

only time will tell whether this will see any release at all or be shelved and forgotten. either way it's hella cool.

news from:


Optimus Prime Wins Pet Party!

10.26.2009 - Special thanks to Ms. Andi Manzano for this tweet on the recent Halloween Pet Party, where one contest winner emerged. A chihuahua wearing a Optimus Prime get up besting the the other dogs in the recent event.


Movie Two Packs Sighted.

10.24.2009 - Though this is old news some won't notice these RoTF movie two packs, that might either save you from looking for two separate figures in your collection. It rare these days that you see two figures bunched up together.

Like the recent sighting of Sideways and a newly repainted Blowpipe (what a name... Hasbro must have ran out of decent ones) based from the Dropkick 2007 figure.

TransFormers Sale Forecast.

10.22.2009 - Transformers toys continues to be on sale for 50% and 30% off. They are getting sold out since Playkit (a local distributor for Hasbro products) had slashed down prices early this year. Mostly due to the arrival of the movie line, and the discontinuation of the Animated series.

The Universe line was also on sale and it has been trending the past months. that the most sought after are now gone from the shelves.
