Chuckdawg1999 is back at it again. Following off of Ultra Bee yesterday, he's back to show off the second of the team combiner sets in RID Combiner Force: Menasor. As Chuck puts it, Menasor is slightly more traditional with five team members, though there's only three distinct molds within the set. You can get a basic rundown of each toy and the combined form in the video - embedded below, of course - and see whether this set looks like something to bring in to your collection. Click through and have a look!
Today, our forums member chuckdawg1999 stopped in to share another new video with us, giving us one of our first in-hand looks at a team combiner set from RID Combiner Force - Ultra Bee! After some people lost enthusiasm toward the Crash Combiners upon seeing them, it'll be important to get a good look at find out how these team sets came out in execution. With two more after this, and these more or less being the "headliners" of this sub-branding, a lot might be riding on these guys! Click through to see the review.
Berserker and Megatron are the new molds from wave 2 of The Last Knight One Step subline. Megatron is fantastic, if you buy one, one step figure make it Megatron. Berserker is fun, but most of the robot sticks out underneath the truck. While both make fine desk toys, Megatron is by far the stronger of the two.
The lone new mold in Titans Return Wave 5 at the Legends price point, Seaspray is a long-awaited Classic style updating of the G1 character, which is sure to drive collector demand. Much more cartoon and original toy -oriented than the Voyager several years ago, but as a toy on its own merits, will it sink, or swim? Click here to watch the review!
Premier Edition Bumblebee is hampered significantly by the fact that you could get the mold five bucks cheaper three years ago. It's not a particularly bad or outstanding example of figures from the later movie lines, but it seems to have lost some robot mode paint since the Age of Extinction. Value is a personal, subjective thing in the collecting world, but it sure doesn't feel like twenty bucks of toy to me. Click here to go to the review!
This is a really cool figure and makes me excited for the other versions of Megatron yet to come. Transformation is simple but enjoyable and the end result is a really sweet looking jet. Highly recommended as I feel this is the best Knight Armor figure thus far.
On the Youtube channel of "TfMaster", we've been treated to a video giving us our first detailed, in hand look at Voyager Hound from The Last Knight Premier Edition wave 2. The video has no dialogue, but does include some text overlays to point out select things, and largely tries to just give a good look at the toy, including a walkthrough of the transformation. It also highlights some details that might not have been widely known before, such as the figure having a removable helmet. Since we haven't had any real photo coverage so far, we've also snapped some stills for closer study. Find those and the video below!
TMan978 has shared his latest video with us on the forums today, taking a look at the recent release from Fans Hobby, Feilong. The Masterpiece-scale unofficial take on Doublecross looks surprisingly large, especially when placed side by side with the Generations equivalent Twinferno. Feilong seems to follow the example of Arch Enemy before it in having a more simple (by the standards of third party goods) transformation, as well. We have the video embedded below, click through and have a look!
New on the forums, chuckdawg1999 has shared a video with us for the Activator Class Combiner Force Sideswipe from RID. This joins the already released Bumblebee and Strongarm from this pricepoint and shares the play feature of an enhanced vehicle mode when the partner Mini-Con is attached. We've got the video for you to check out in the full post below, so click through now and get watching!
RAC continues his look at the Transformers: The Last Knight
figures provided to us by Hasbro! Today is the only non-Bumblebee entry he has queued: Legion Class Optimus Prime and Barricade! Both are reuses of previous molds with new paint jobs.Though Barricade's paint isn't much in robot mode... keep reading to see!
On Youtube, Chefatron has shared videos for the just-released (in Asia) Titans Return Octone (Octane) and Blitzwing. The videos go in to some good depth about what's different on these figures versus the Optimus and Megatron uses of the base molds so you can get a solid idea of what these new releases have to offer, plus a look at each figure on their own. And if you want a nice bit of shock, watch for the Titans Return Blitzwing and 2013 Generations Blitzwing. Cripes.
Both videos are embedded below, so come take a look.
From Soundwaveman on Youtube, we have a pair of new videos tonight. While wave 1 is just barely officially out around the world, The Last Knight wave 2 has unexpectedly become available in part, in the UK. Sqweeks and Drift seem to be the only representatives of the second wave that have turned up so far, however. Drift is a heavy retooling of the Age of Extinction toy, while Sqweeks is of course entirely new. The videos go in to a fair bit of detail on the toys and stand as an excellent first real look at these two releases. You can find both embedded below!
Chefatron from Youtube has one more video review to share this weekend, featuring the Activators Class Soundwave from RID Combiner Force. The Activators are the Mini-Con-interactive action feature style figures. Soundwave is paired with Laserbeak, and using Laserbeak in vehicle mode deploys (non-firing) missile launchers. Apart from that, you can see the admittedly limited articulation and the transformation, though most of that was revealed a while ago in a video featuring Soundwave's prototype
, but it's good to see how the final version worked out. Click through to watch!
On Youtube this weekend, Chefatron has posted a couple of videos for new Robots in Disguise toys that have started to hit in Asia. First up is a pair of videos for two new Legion figures reflecting some of the updated Decepticon cast in the new season of the show, Cyclonus and Heatseeker. The videos will show off the basics of the two figures, including transformation - and sometimes the best part of these tiny figures are the clever ways they have for getting from one form to another! Both videos can be found in the full post below.
More figures released under the Turbo Changers header, the Knight Armor figures feature spring loaded helmets and very simple transformations. Grimlock is an ok figure with the most interesting helm, while Bumblebee suffers from weak knees. Optimus Prime is the best overall figure with an almost Samurai motif to his helmet.
Just in tonight from the RFC Reviews Youtube channel, diecast has a video featuring Berserker from The Last Knight wave 1 Premier Edition Deluxe assortment. Giving a good look over the figure, as well as the packaging which is compared directly to the likes of Star Wars Black Series, we get to see if this figure holds up to the higher suggested pricepoint. We've got the video embedded in the full article, so click through to watch now!
Our forums member chuckdawg1999 has shared another video with us. This is a look at the first two waves of the Crash Combiners play pattern in Robots in Disguise Combiner Force. The first wave of two packs, Optimus and Strongarm, and Bumblebee and Sideswipe have been available for a while, but wave 2 pack of Skysledge and Stormhammer are just now beginning to hit in the US, and this video gives a chance to get a look at these new figures - including seeing the components get swapped around and mix and matched! Check it out embedded below.
From our forums, TMan978 has shared a video of an interesting new figure. Wei Jiang, known fairly well for making upscaled, surprisingly high quality knockoffs of both official products and the occasional third party item has recently made an upsized iteration of Generations Arcee, theoretically scaled to Masterpiece figures. There's a few other things altered with the figure too, though probably more on the minor side. Check out the embedded video below to have a look at this offering.
