Transformers Reviews
Generations
While we had assumed that Generations Chromia would be a remold of Arcee, she is in fact a remold of Arcee instead. Which is why it turned out to be okay that she shipped in the same assortment as Arcee. Also, she's the best of the three women we've gotten in Generations this year.
Generations
The long, long-awaited G1 Arcee figure is hitting stores now! RAC likes the figure, but some extremely otaku design choices detract from the overall enjoyability (and even G1 accuracy) of the figure in favor of making the Arcee of designers Hironori Kobayashi and Yuki "Kiss Players" Ohshima's very... personal dreams. Also, you currently have a 25% or less chance of getting fully functional hands. Continue to full review
Generations
They're from the future and they know a lot about history - a team from the Lost Light travels to Cybertron's past to protect Orion Pax, the logical target of Brainstorm's plan to change the timeline. But time travel never quite works out how you intend it to. "Elegant Chaos, Part 1: All Our Parlous Yesterdays" Written by James Roberts, art by Alex Milne, and colors by Joana Lafuente. Keep reading!
Generations
After he and Ratchet are taken prisoner by the Decepticon Gigatron, Drift is given a chance to win their freedom - by rejoining Gigatron as a Decepticon and leading him to a hidden army Drift discovered long ago. Drift: Empire of Stone #2, written by Shane McCarthy, breakdowns by Guido Guidi, finishes by Stephen Baskerville, and colors by John-Paul Bove. Read the full review!
Generations
More IDW based characters are typically warmly welcomed by collectors with IDW's modern comic contributions representing some of the best Transformers fiction we've ever had in our fandom's history. So just designing Brainstorm to go with his current design model in the comics would have been enough to please many collectors. But learning that the toy was being designed as a functioning Headmaster was a complete surprise and pushed Brainstorm another step farther... Keep reading
Generations
Tokyo is the battleground as Spike Witwicky is confronted by enemies both old and new. As the hunt for the Enigma takes focus, is it really a thirst for revenge that has moved Prowl to pursue Spike? "Onyx Interface, Part Two: VS.", written by John Barber, art by Andrew Griffith and Brendan Cahill, with colors by Josh Perez and Joana Lafuente. Continue to the full review.
Angry Birds
The battle for the Eggspark boils over as the Autobirds shell out some punishment in their attempt to crack the case of the missing eggs! "Age of Eggstinction" is written by John Barber, with art by Marcelo Ferreira, colors by Nikos Koutsis, and flats by Mike Toris. Continue to full review
Generations
Where's Drift? What happened to him after his disgraced exit from the Lost Light so long ago? Drift has taken on the role of wandering soldier, but how far will he travel before his past catches up to him? Written by Shane McCarthy, pencils by Guido Guidi, inks by Stephen Baskerville, and colors by John-Paul Bove. Read the full review!
Generations
The reverberations from Brainstorm's jump to the past ripple outward through time and space, but at the far edges the Lost Light is barely aware of the true scope of the effects as they work to understand the how - and how to stop him and undo whatever he's done. "The Custom-Made Now - An Elegant Chaos Prologue", written by James Roberts, with pencils by Alex Milne and inks by Alex Milne and Brian Shearer with colors by Joana Lafuente. Read the full review (WARNING: Contains spoilers!)
Generations
As seeds of doubt and distrust are planted, a widening rift pushes Optimus Prime apart from his team. Meanwhile some old acquaintances of the Transformers come out of hiding, drawing the wrong kind of attention from all sides of the secret war on Earth. "Onyx Interface, Part One: Signals, Calls And Marches" written by John Barber, with art by Andrew Griffith, and colors by Josh Perez. Read the full review!
Generations
MORAL CRISIS -- Four Autobots are presented with a damaged Cybertronian they can't identify. Surely they must help him survive, but what consequences will their choices carry? And how will the writings of a much younger Megatron sway the outcome? "Births, Deaths, and Interventions", More Than Meets The Eye issue 34, written by James Roberts, art by Atilio Rojo, with colors by Joana Lafuente. Read the full review!
Generations
It's storytime on the moon as Alpha Trion reveals yet another forgotten history of Cybertron to Optimus Prime. But is the intent to help Prime know his new enemy, or is it to ready him for a war still to come...? Written by John Barber, art by Livio Ramondelli. Read the full review!
Generations
A Civil War often pits one city-state against another... but nowhere is that as true as it is on Cybertron. Trypticon vs. Metroplex in Primacy #3! Written by Chris Metzen and Flint Dille with art by Livio Ramondelli and letters by Chris Mowry. Continue to full review
Generation 1
Transformers Legacy: The Art of Transformers Packaging, by Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster is the newest entry in the realm of Transformers art books, and the latest offering from the team that brought us The Ark and The Allspark Almanac. But Transformers Legacy goes in a different direction from prior art books which focused on the art of a particular video game or TV show. You may think you've already seen it all when it comes to G1 and G2 box art, but you've never seen it like this. And I believe most everyone will find at least a few things within that they've never seen before! Read the full review!
Generation 1
A funeral is crashed on Earth, and the "deceased" crashes back! And a trial within the walls of Metroplex is a mockery of justice. Meanwhile two robot autopsies are planned, one for each planet... only one of the subjects is still alive! The Transformers Vs. GI Joe #3 is written by Tom Scioli and John Barber, with art, colors and lettering by Scioli. Continue to full review
Generations
The first leader-class figure in a non-movie Generations line, Jetfire is an ingenious mix of design details from the G1 Skyfire robot mode animation model and a legally distinct approximation of the original Jetfire's vehicle mode. A few quirks and some chrome, but a really nice figure. Continue to full review
Generations
Black Shadow - or rather, Sky Shadow was an obscure entity to appear in Generations, having a fiction appearance in Victory for one or two episodes, limited to Japanese audiences. Crosscut goes a step farther. Crosscut is a Transformers character created by eHobby over a decade ago to facilitate using Diaclone colors for reissued G1 Transformers molds. Where can they go from here to find a new level of obscurity to bring to toy store shelves? Read the full review!
Generations
Nightbeat was almost Jazz. We had at least mockup images of a Jazz in Nightbeat colors with a new head and the speaker clip-on accessories replaced with search lights. And indeed, art of that very thing is on the copy of Dark Cybertron Chapter 9 shipped with the toy. But of course, Jazz-beat never happened, so we ended up with Goldfire given a Nightbeat head and colors, and sold with package art depicting Jazz. Um, oops? It's not like it matters, since at no point so far has Nightbeat been depicted in interior art with either body style, so... Read the full review!
