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…
Transformers Energon Rapid Run

I rather like big, blue, and bulky. He still ended up being one of the Energon era’s most abundant shelf-warmers though. Poor rookie.
Transformers Energon Deluxe Class Prowl
Rolling out with another Deluxe Energon figure, our very own Formula 1 Police Car Autobot, Prowl! While a somewhat memorable member of the animated cast, I’m fairly certain this figure was really just rabble with many of its Deluxe Class brothers-in-arms. Nevertheless, Prowl is a neat little toy in his own right, with the vehicle mode being particularly appealing.
Transformers Energon Leader Class Optimus Prime
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.
