Vintage G1 Optimus Prime Instruction Booklet (4/1/2021)
Posted by KidTDragon
We at shmax.com love toys. And we've decided that it's long past time that we honor the most important part of the toys that we adore so much. We're talking, of course, about the humble instruction booklet. Without instruction booklets, would we be able to figure out that Optimus Prime's arms have to be rotated out before flipping up his head, or that She-Hulk's hands can be swapped with the extra hands that she comes with, or that the control panely-lookin' sticker goes on the control panely-lookin' section on the Wind Raider? Yeah, probably. But we'd never know for sure, and who wants to live with that kind of nagging doubt all their life? So take a bow, instruction booklet. Today is your day! Or month, considering how often we update this thing. (Photo courtesy of Spiff-O-Matic, who's never opened an instruction booklet in his life, that rebel!)

Are you a fan of G1 Hound but wish he was better articulated, twice as tall, and named after a Diff'rent Strokes character? If you are, then Fans Toys has good news for you. (Photo courtesy of Spiff-O-Matic, who knows exactly what he's talking about.)
Robot Heroes Rhinox (1/1/2021)
Posted by KidTDragon
Rhinox is so happy that 2020 is over he started waving his hands in the air like he just don't care. And then his arms got stuck. That doesn't bode well for the new year. Can someone help him to a CR chamber? (Thanks to Hellscream333 for bringing the noise and the photo.)
Fans Toys' Stomp (12/1/2020)
Posted by KidTDragon
You can criticize third-party toymakers all you want, but you don't see Hasbro making an accessory homaging three frames of The Transformers: The Movie, do you? You're dang right you don't. Lucky for us, Fans Toys was there to fill that void with Stomp. (Eye-popping photo courtesy of Spiff-O-Matic.)
Robots in Disguise Galvatron (11/1/2020)
Posted by KidTDragon
Galvatron is the current record-holder for "Transformer with the Most Alt-Modes", able to turn into a whopping ten different things! I'd say that accomplishment deserves... a big hand.

The Loyal Subjects Bonecrusher (10/1/2020)
Posted by KidTDragon
"Chibi" is a style of caricature where characters are depicted with short, chubby bodies and big heads with large, expressive eyes. Normally the results are super-cute, but when the subject has a head that's 50% eye to begin with, you end up with Bonecrusher, here. Pleasant dreams, kids!

Itty Bittys Megatron (9/1/2020)
Posted by KidTDragon
Megatron has come up with his most devious plan yet. He's made himself small, cuddly, and just too adorable to resist! And I think it's working. I say we give him Earth, who's with me? No one? Okay, how 'bout we let him have Cleveland, see what he does with it, and go from there? (Thanks to the awe-inspiring Spiff-O-Matic for the AWWW-inspiring photo.)
Generation 1 Topspin (8/1/2020)

Since the anniversary of Woodstock is this month, Topspin has decided to celebrate by going au naturel. He's all about peace, music, and free love, and he doesn't care about your labels, man, so you may as well put that sticker sheet away. (Groovy photo courtesy of Spiff-O-Matic)
