A quick little showcase of an old, tiny Transformers Energon figure – the Terrorcon Divebomb. I’m sure this guy was a master shelf-warmer during Energon‘s glory days; the Terrorcons and Omnicons never really made much of an impression on people, I wager. There were scores of these guys flitting around in Energon, this figure alone is just a dime in…

Though once he gets his mid-season upgrade to Roadblock I couldn’t care less about him… Either way, I did of course own Inferno’s toy counterpart as a child, and…
