Sixshot is the most anticipated Leader Class release in Titans Return - until Overlord, anyway. But it made a big impact when it debuted at a show in mid-2016. In hand, well, it has its ups and downs. It's not really beholden to the linewide gimmick of Titans Return which some will see as a distinct benefit. But it's also trying to do a lot within a very strict budget, and that's something that rarely turns out beneficial. Click here for the review of Sixshot
featuring video, plus text and (lots of) photos!
First contact! Optimus Prime greets Earth's latest offworld visitors, the highly eccentric and extremely modular Junkions! But the GI Joe unit under the command of Zilong Qian wants a shot at the new visitors as well. Offering friendship and exchange of knowledge and technology for access to Ore-13, the Junkions come in peace...

It's Metroplex versus an army of undead Titans, and everyone on Cybertron and within the Council of Worlds is giving everything they can to help him! ...except for one person, and Starscream is very much not happy with them. Desperate Times

Optimus Prime allows several colonists to join his efforts on Earth. But a
mission involving Cybertronian derived technology goes poorly, requiring
Optimus to intervene personally and again witness for himself that the world is
anything but accepting of the future he envisions. Recalling his days as Orion
Pax, super-cop, he reflects on a Cybertron unaccepting of the future its
then-Prime held in mind for it. "New Cybertron Part 1: To Walk Among The
Chosen" written by John Barber, art by Kei Zama, colors by Josh Burcham.Click here to go to the review!
More Than Meets The Eye

As happy as I was with Hot Rod, Triggerhappy goes just that bit more beyond. Now sure, I have a prior attachment to the character design that might otherwise inform such a thing, but imagine how pleased I was to see that even if that hadn't been the case, Triggerhappy got made really, really well! I can't wait to see what comes along for this base design in later reuses and pretool alternate parts! Find out more on the review page

Maybe the real Knights Of Cybertron were the friends we made along the way. ...okay, probably not. But this issue is
about the friends our Decepticon friends the Scavengers have made along the way. More Than Meets The Eye: Revolution

Hot Rod has needed a Classics style updating for a while. The Rodimus from the 2006 line aged very quickly, a fact that became very evident with its rerelease in 2010. But with troubled Masterpiece releases between then and now, the question must be asked: can we actually get a good Hot Rod toy? Yes. We can. Head over to the review

Twinferno is the Monsterbot Doublecross, with a new trademark-friendly name. At least he's less likely to be casually confused with Doubledealer now. Despite some fairly positive aspects to the toy, it's overall kind of disappointing thanks to some of the design choices. You can find out more about that on the review page

Thanks to chuckdawg1999 on the forums, we've got a look at the last new mold piece from the third wave of Titans Return Titan Masters. Autobot Ptero is the red pterosaur that has suspicious similarities to Swoop, but that's silly because Swoop is a blue Dinobot. The quick video walks through the beast mode, the weapon configuration, and the vehicle form, plus gives a quick look at the Titan Master's head mode. Keep reading to see the review, embedded below.
