Coming to us from Danh Le, we have some new coverage of part of the initial Deluxe assortment of The Last Knight's Premier Edition line. Having seen a fair bit of in-hand on Barricade, Berserker, and Bumblebee already, one thing not really shown was the transformations for the new molds. Today we have a pair of videos that walk through the processes from vehicle to robot and back to vehicle. Bumblebee ought not to have any surprises, being largely reused from Age of Extinction, but Barricade and Berserker should be much more informative! The videos are embedded below, click through to watch!
TFormers Forums member chuckdawg1999
has reviewed the Legion Class version of Robots In Disguise Legion class Groundbuster, better known in the show as Groundpounder! (And known on certain printings of his instruction sheet as Groundbutter!) Chuck doesn't seem too taken with the figure, but I'll let him tell you about it. Keep reading to see the review!
Diecast of Radio Free Cybertron has posted his review of Toyworld Assault, their take on Masterpiece Thrust! He's taken a comprehensive look at this impressively large alternative to Masterpiece Thrust, which towers over even MP Starscream. And it even comes with a very large and impressive stand! Keep reading to have a look.
Our forums member chuckdawg1999 is back once again with a new toy video for us. This time he's bringing a look at TakaraTomy Legends Astrotrain side by side with its Hasbro Titans Return counterpart. This gives a good chance to directly compare the two releases, find out about any differences besides deco, and see which you might prefer. We have Chuck's video embedded below, so click through and give it a look!
We've got another review video from diecast on the RFC Reviews channel, talking about Downbeat from Maketoys. Downbeat is one of a surprisingly small assortment of unofficial Masterpiece Jazzes, which bring slightly different ideas to the table. Downbeat seemingly isn't perfect, though it presents as more a collection of small problems than any one significant one. You can see the details of vehicle and robot modes, and the lengthy, but honestly pretty nice looking transformation process in between. The review is embedded below, so go ahead and watch right now.
Just when you thought they were gone, they're back! This box set is a platinum edition / Entertainment Earth exclusive, the Liokaiser set! Based on Sky Reign and heavily remolded with different deluxe appendages, is this set worth your money? The cost is lowering on some places like Amazon, so watch, subscribe, like and whatnot to see if this set does anything for you!
Hot Rod is a good figure in the Titans Return line. It's not better, or worse than its Classic version, it just is. Car mode is good with a passable robot mode. If you're on the fence and have a version of the Classic mold, you can pass this figure up.
Danh Le, who originally shared the first images we brought you of the initial Deluxe offering for The Last Knight's toyline has uploaded a pair of videos to Youtube featuring these toys. The first video which is about 23 minutes long shows each of the Deluxes in a basic overview. The new molds do not get transformations demonstrated, unfortunately. A look at Barricade's vehicle underbody helps make clear that it won't be complex, however. The second video is narrated slideshow of additional images of the toys. We've got both embedded below, so go ahead and check them out!
The RFC Reviews Youtube channel has finished out videos for the three new molds from Titans Return Deluxe wave 4. Radio Free Cybertron's diecast has posted the video review for Perceptor, featuring the return to the character's classic microscope alternate mode, and the mobile artillery secondary alt mode also inspired by the original toy. You can see the transformations for both, as well as the usual run down of articulation and a general overview of the details. The video is embedded below, click through now to watch!
Changing gears a bit tonight, diecast from Radio Free Cybertron has posted a new video to the RFC Reviews channel showing off a testshot of Arch Enemy, the first figure in the Master Builder series from new group Fans Hobby. Despite being a testshot piece, the review demonstrates good design and build quality overall with an appropriately simple transformation. And about twice the volume of the original official Robots in Disguise Scourge toy! We've embedded the review below, so go ahead and take a look!
Once again on the RFC Reviews channel, diecast from Radio Free Cybertron has posted a video review for one of the new mold figures from Titans Return Deluxe wave 4. Kup and Flintlock is tonight's entry, and we get to take a good look at it through articulation and transformation, as well as side by side with the original G1 toy. We get a closeup look at the head, and some side by side shots with other Titans Return figures, revealing Kup is surprisingly on the tall side! All that and more are in the video, embedded below. Click through and have a look!
Over on the RFC Reviews Youtube channel, diecast from Radio Free Cybertron has posted a new video featuring Topspin from Titans Return Deluxe wave 4. The review does a good job showing off what the figure can do in articulation and highlights some improved tolerances on the Titan Master neck connector. And in both robot and vehicle mode, we get to see how much bigger Topspin is compared to typical prior Titans return Deluxes. The video is embedded below, so click through and check it out.
Titans Return wave 4 includes two new molds at the Titan Master pricepoint. The Monsterbot Repugnus, and Shuffler, who is based on a Japanese exclusive individual release Headmaster Warrior. Neither has received very much attention yet, but on Youtube chefatron has uploaded a pair of videos giving a quick look at both little toys. Though not the most detailed takes, they do give a workable overview of what both have to offer. The videos can be found below, embedded in the full news post!
Forums member chuckdawg1999 has shared another review with us, of the the second piece in the initial assortment of Activator Combiners from RID Combiner Force. Bumblebee and Stuntwing perform similarly to the previously seen Strongarm set, gaining a "Stealth Force" style augmented vehicle mode when the Mini-Con is attached, while still having a very basic robot form. You can get a good overview of what this particular set does in the video, which is embedded below.
Titans Return Deluxe wave 4 has the unusual distinction of including five different toys on its first run. While case revisions can lead to this after a certain time has passed, since the start of Combiner Wars, initial assortments have uniformly held four different molds. The new-face recolors Krok and Quake join three new molds to make wave 4 - and surprisingly these recolors are getting just as much attention as the new guys! Chefatron has some early reviews of both of these affording a good chance to look over both figures and see if these need to go on your shopping list for the near future. Keep reading to see both videos!
This set is an interesting package. Drawing upon elements once found in MASK, Strongarm is a simplified transformer that springs up into a monster truck type vehicle. Trickout, Strongarms companion, is a fun little truck that serves its purpose. Most collectors will pass on this set, but kids will love it and it makes a fun desk toy.
Following up on ExVee's Gnaw Gallery, RAC reviews the figure! He's a cute little guy, and the troop-builder you'd want a Sharkticon to be. He also has a fun Titan Master interaction! Shark Mode is a little bit better than Robot Mode, which bears the brunt of the Legends budget's compromises, but nothing about the figure is outright bad. Click here to read and watch the review!
We've got a first look in video form at the just-released Stormshot from the new assortment of Robots in Disguise Warrior Class figures, thanks to chuckdawg1999 from our forums! Leading off the Combiner Force sub-branding, Stormshot is an all new mold Autobot jet. While the video sadly fails to provide any information about the poseability of the robot mode, we get to see the transformation and a little detail on the accessories. The video is embedded below, so click through to take a look!
