Pics of the upcoming Alternity Starscream and Skywarp have been released. I have been impressed with the Alternity series thus far and have grabbed every release. The sculpts and designs do look better than the earlier Binaltech series, though the size is a bit smaller.

Starscream and Skywarp look pretty awesome from the pics. I esspecially like Skywarp’s colours. Will definitely be pre-ordering these. :)

Ok, as if we didn’t see this coming, but Hot Toys has announced T2 – Sarah Connor. It does look like her, but I’ll most probably not get this. Purely cause I’ll be saving my moola for the different versions of Arnie! Bring on battle damages T2 Arnie!

The Powercore Combiners is something new from Hasbro that didn’t really catch my eye until I saw the 5 pack images. Basically a modern rehash on the Combaticons and Aerialbots. I must say, that I’m pretty sold on the new looks. Hope they turn out as good as it looks.

Transformers Generations is basically the Classics series 3.0. A retake on old G1 characters that fans love. The latest announcements from Toy Fair 2010 didn’t really excite me thus far. Only Drift from the TF comics and Thrust, which was released previously in Japan, caught my eye. Though Tformers.com did report that Darkmount, as seen below, did have a Straxus (from the comics) head sculpt. I would definately check that out.

Other pics can be found here and here.

Woot! The AT-AT in it’s full toy glory has been announced. Since I got the Millennium Falcon, I have been waiting to see what was next from Hasbro. And they didn’t dissappoint. The new figure looks huge ass and packed with accessories too!

Hasbro announced their plans for the year and there are quite a few things to look forward to, like their vintage line. I also did like the Birth of Darth Vader battlepack. oooo yaaa! More pics here, here and here.

Today is the official launch of Star Trek Online. This is the first MMORPG I’ve gotten addicted to since I retired from World of Warcraft a couple of years back, and I must say it’s addictive.

I’ve been playing STO since the open beta and I must say, the graphics are the first thing to stand out. It isn’t state of the art, but it’s damm pretty. Space and battles have never looked so good.

The game is a mix of space and ground battles and both are exciting and good looking. I quite like the pacing of the game and while there are a few bugs, it’s typical for any new MMORPG.

I can see many late nights killing Klingons and Borg. And great that we have a Singapore Fleet set up already. Check out GameAxis.com’s MMORPG forums (STO thread) for info on how to join. See you in the Alpha Quadrant!
