The Great Cybertronian Write Off - Week 3

The mission is to entertain Earth during this extended period of home stay, and so the write off begins...The Great Cybertronian Write Off!

Well, actually, it began three weeks ago. But it has been raging ever since, and every week it just feels like it's getting more exciting, or at least it is for myself, tikgnat, Sixo and Toybox Soapbox! For three weeks now we have been posting daily G1 toy photos and mini reviews, woven together with the visual magic of early UK and Euro G1 paperwork designs. Myself, Sixo and Toybox Soapbox have been on writing and photo duty, with tikgnat executing the stunning design work. The idea has been to give everyone something - however small - to look forward to daily while we live our lives mostly from home. This short blog post will summarise my contributions to Week 3!

You can catch my Week 1 and Week 2 summaries if you've missed any entries, and you can of course follow the #GCWO hashtag on Twitter and Instagram for the daily dose.

And here are the full-size versions of my Week 3 entries:

Day 16 - Ravage

Day 19 - Mirage

If you'd like to see the full-size high quality versions of the rest, check out Days 15, 18 and 21 by Toybox Soapbox and Days 17 and 20 by Sixo on their individual blog summaries.

Huge thanks again to tikgnat for design magic, he is also responsible for putting together the image at the top of this article, inspired heavily by the back of the 1984 UK pack-in toy catalogue. Remember, don't accept any cheap imitations of The Great Cybertronian Write Off, whichever obscure toy robot fan event they may be from!

Remember to continue checking #GCWO regularly on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for more daily doses of G1 Transformers mini-reviews, photography and nostalgia in the ultimate Transformers crossover event of the year!

All the best
