Transformers BotBots Ol' Tic Toc review

The idea behind the Lost Bots is that they're all items who have gotten separated from their teams. So if you look at the west wing of the Transformers BotBots mall, you'll find today's character hanging out by the music store up on the third floor.

Dumb ass company stops selling Lego-inspired gun cover

The brain geniuses at Culper Precision were selling a covering for handguns that made them look like toys.

a colorful gun with bumps that make it look like it's made of Legos

You know, because kids playing with guns and accidentally shooting someone isn't already a huge enough problem in America or anything. Unintentional shootings rising 30% in the past year wasn't enough for Culper, who demanded more more MORE preventable gun deaths go unprevented.

A (now-removed) listing on their site said "Guns are fun. Shooting is fun. 30 rounds full auto is fun." In 2021, there have already been 183 unintentional shootings by children, leading to 73 deaths. In an Instagram advert for the cover, Culper said "here's one of those childhood dreams come to life."

When an advocacy group contacted Lego about the idiot product, a cease-and-desist letter was soon on its way to Culper Precision, and a product that never should have existed in the first place was no longer for sale.

AtLA: Toph addendum

As mentioned in today's review, the character who eventually became Toph Beifong was initially conceived as a boy. Here's that early concept art, when the character was still known as "Sud":

The name was used for Roku's earthbending master, the design influenced Toph's opponent at Earth Rumble VI, The Boulder, and his personality went to Bolin in Legend of Korra. Not a bad legacy!

Transformers BotBots Snorg the Conquerer review

So far all the Retro Replays we've reviewed have been repaints of existing molds. While that might have been a fun gimmick for a tribe based on "the past," It also would have been kind of limiting. That's why today's BotBot is something new!
