Our friend from the forums TMan978 has stopped by once again to share a new review with us! This time it's a video looking at DX9's Doombringers, the three pack of Legends-scale Galvatron, Cyclonus and Scourge. Taking a detailed look at all three small figures, including quick size comparisons with a range of other similarly sized toys, you can see the details of each figure and their modified decos versus the individual releases. The video is embedded in the full post below, so click through and start watching!
Optimus Prime reaches out to form an alliance with Soundwave, to the discomfort of the majority of both their respective groups. But to confront their common enemy, Galvatron, bold choices are called for. However, as the assault against the Decepticon ship is mounted, no one is prepared for the weapon Galvatron has waiting.

Death approaches, as certain as the setting sun. In these final moments before a hopeless battle begins, unexpected discoveries answer questions long held, and important choices are made that will change lives from here going forward - for as long as it lasts. The Dying of The Light Part 4: At Close of Day, written by James Roberts, art by Alex Milne and Hayato Sakamoto (pages 14-18 only), colors by Joana Lafuente. Click here to read the review!

The final member of the team is here, the smallest, and with no new parts. But yet, somehow it seems that Rust Dust is the best of the bunch! Funny how things work out, isn't it?

Hasbro gives G1 fans the final piece needed to complete their Combiner Wars Defensor with this new Deluxe series Protectobot Groove figure.
The TFCC FSS 4.0 is rolling on, with Grabuge, otherwise known as Ruckus!
This figure is a fantastic repaint of Offroad, and the tightest version of the mold I've handled.
If you're buying this on the secondary market it's a solid figure on its own.
RAC reviews Kids Logic Devastator, a really attractive high-end figure with lights, sounds, and a lot of articulation! But also a few issues with fragility - some likely isolated to this copy of the figure and some more likely to be systemic. Click here to go to the review

The second of the two cars in the Combiner Wars Victorion set, Jumpstream is a general improvement over Dust Up in several ways, though depending on your tastes, one or two things may not seem quite as positive in the end when you put the two car characters side by side. Plus with the Breakdown mold not entirely being a fan favorite, can this remold help attract some new fans? Click here

Getting around to the cars from the Combiner Wars Victorion box set, we've got Dust Up! This is the Dead End remold, and while it has a little less remolding than the average in the set, but the parts it has are very nice looking, though not all of them work without some issues.

We're back with the next stop in the Victorion review series, hitting both uses of the helicopter mold at once! While I note in the video that one of the ways the mold was changed could only have happened in a box set, what's also true is that two toys using identical plastic colors like this in one "assortment" could also only happen the same way. A notable accomplishment, perhaps - but is it actually a selling point? To find out, click here

Get the lowdown and a detailed look at the new Transformers Masterpiece MP-30 Ratchet figure from Takara Tomy.
The truth comes out. But which truth, how far, in what way, and to the benefit of who? And even after all those questions are answered, there's still Mayhem - and the Noisemaze - between Prowl and the Wreckers, and safety. Transformers: Sins of The Wreckers #4
is written and drawn by Nick Roche with colors by Josh Burcham. SPOILER WARNING:
this review is more in-depth than is typical for our comics reviews, so events beyond the official preview may be revealed! Continue to the review!
Ravage bails out the unlikely reinforcements that have arrived before the assembled Decepticon forces can overwhelm them, but their shuttle is shot down, forcing them to crash near the Necrobot's fortress. Elsewhere, Megatron negotiates his surrender to Tarn, in exchange for sparing everyone else on the planet, but this is not the endgame Tarn desires.

Toy Scope has posted on Facebook a set of pictures and a brief review of a near-final sample of Browning II, the next entry in the Fansproject Function X unofficial Headmaster lineup. The review mostly talks about the details of the transformation (watch out if you like to stay surprised on these figures) and a short run through of the articulation in addition to some quick, more general comments. Plus we got a number of nice photos out of it showing off the figure's two modes. You can see a copy of the review as well as the photos below!
Takara Tomy are shipping their newly released Transformers MP-30 Masterpiece Ratchet action figure. YouTube reviewer Optibotimus has posted a video review of the figure giving us the out of box details on brother to MP-27 Ironhide. Read on to see all the details now on the Transformers MP-30 Masterpiece Ratchet.
The Transformers Cybertron line gave of some great figures. Arguably, one of the best Leader Optimus Prime molds ever made came from the Cybertron toy line.
Capturing all the essential Prime elements, its BIG, well articulated, has a great robot mode, a few alternate modes, and armed to the teeth.
What a better figure to throw back to in this review from our very own forums member TMan978 giving us the CHILL Review.
See how this guy compares to more recent Combiner Wars toys and the many features of the Leader class figure.
