My sudden re-ignited infatuation with these G1 Transformers continues this week with a review of Hasbro's Sergeant Kup from the Transformers: Generations line. Most G1 fans by now would know that Tomy Takara produces the 'bling-ed' up version of the same figures under the Transformers: United moniker (the line used to be called Henkei for those who remember). I too, was among those who completely shy away from collecting any TF figures since the Henkei line's demise some time ago. Little do we expect that Tomy Takara would revive the line, completely re-named the line and inadverteredly winning back the hearts of Henkei collectors who have since stayed away from the line (refusing to buy any of the Hasbro versions) . Having said all that, I'm actually reviewing a Hasbro figure today rather than a TF: United figure (eventually I will when Wheeljack comes out soon......woohoo!). I present to you, dear loyal readers, my humble review of Sergeant Kup!

I've mentioned about the all-new Thundercats animated cartoon series some time back, and I've also mentioned about how we were denied to having Mattel aka Matty collector to produce the action figures for us. Why Matty why?!! Why did ya' have to let the license slip to Bandai? I always believed we should give Bandai a chance and see what they could muster at their end. Who knows, Bandai might spring a surprise! And a surpise they gave when the first preview pictures came out. Everybody now...Thunder....Thunder...Thundercats....NOOOO!!!!!! Why oh why they had to be this ugly?
