    Polymer Clay Toon Link

    Had a jolly holiday season this year spending the Sunday before Christmas going on a straight 18-hour clay molding/sculpting spree. You know I’m desperate when I throw myself that deep into my crafts.

But that didn’t stop it from having its…

    Energon Optimus Prime…out of the Unicron trilogy Primes, (of which I’ve proudly owned all three simultaneously now thanks to this) this guy’s the most underwhelming of the lot. I’ve owned this toy before as a child, and other than being a design wreck, it’s also considerably smaller than its brother Primes, most notably in Super Mode.
