They Call Me The Seeker….I Been Searchin Low & High

(Geek mode ON) The name “Seeker” was a term originally coined by fans to describe the Decepticon Jets of the same mode, eventually adopted by Hasbro and various comic continuities. (Geek mode OFF)

Lobster Tales

I once read somewhere that it must have taken a VERY hungry man to eat the very first lobster.  Who would’ve thought that this oversized bony & spikey insect looking thing from the sea would taste oh so good!  But I'm getting off-topic….this isn’t a food blog afterall.  Meet Clawful, the Warrior with the Grip of Evil!

An Law-Full Entry

Beach-head (Joe trainer): What's that bow-wow doing here? 
Law (new Joe recruit): That's my dog, Order. He's trained to sniff out explosives. Order, seek! 
Beach-head: This is supposed to be YOUR test, Law! 
Law: Hey, Law and Order are a team, man. He find the bombs, I drive the car. We tried it the other way, but it didn't work.

Et Tu…Bruticus?

In 1986, Hasbro released 5 new Transformer toys; Onslaught, Blast-off, Brawl, Swindle & Vortex, collectively known as the Combaticons. Together, the formed into a larger robot, Bruticus (think Voltes V or Voltron).  (geek mode on) In the world of Transformers they were known as a combiner, or gestalt (geek mode off). Anyway, aside from the fact that you had 5 smaller robots that could form into one bigger robot, there really wasn’t anything that special about them.  Like most Transformers back then, they sorely lacked in the articulation department, and so it was like 5 bricks getting together to form one big….brick.
