Once again chuckdawg1999 is on the forums showing off some new Robots in Disguise for us. This time he's finishing off the current run of Mini-Con Battle Packs with Grimlock. Most notable for being able to have a giant dinosaur head clip to the robot mode's arm, that's shown in some detail in the video, along with the usual walk through of transformation and accessory run down. You can watch the video, embedded below - keep reading!
Our forums member chuckdawg1999 has shared a new video with us, starting off a look at the second wave of RID Mini-Con Battle Packs. This video goes over Bumblebee with Mini-Con Major Mayhem. After a quick look at Bumblebee in both modes and the Mini-Con, we get a look at the armor which seems to be a reasonably improved experience versus the wave 1 figures from this price point. Click through to have a look at the embedded video.
Thanks to jas d on Youtube we have our first look at Combiner Wars Sky Lynx in video. Sky Lynx is at this point likely to be the final new mold designed for Combiner Wars, and so has a lot riding on it. Unlike Brawl who carried similar hopes, this video suggests Sky Lynx is managing to pull it off for the most part with no significant flaws called out. We've embedded the video for your convenience, but caution is advised if you're susceptible to motion sickness from fast movement in videos - there are some amazing things happening here with post-production image stabilization!
The TF Upgrader Facebook page has shared a video copied off the Youku streaming video service featuring an unpainted sample of Masterpiece Ironhide. This is the same item seen in photos recently, from the same individual whose name sadly cannot be correctly displayed here on the front page. While few will be able to get insight from the narration of the video, we do get to see the transformation performed starting around the 8 minute mark in the video. We have it embedded below, so click through and take a look!
On our forums we have yet another video from chuckdawg1999, this one following on Warrior Thunderhoof with a look at Warrior Class Quillfire.

On the forums, chuckdawg1999 has shared a new review with us yet again, showing off the newly available - and long-awaited - Warrior Class Thunderhoof.

We have the video review embedded below, so keep reading and take a look!
From the Starblight Youtube channel we have a first look on video at Combiner Wars Wheeljack. While photos have already told a great deal of the story in terms of absent deco elements in robot mode, the video gives a good overview of the entire situation with the toy. Plus, we get to find out that it's packed with Windblade
Vol.2 #2, part 3 of the Combiner Wars event. We have the video embedded below for your convenience, so keep reading and check it out.

Straight from our forums, chuckdawg1999 has brought us a review of Mini-Con Battle Pack Sideswipe from Robots in Disguise.

Finally tonight via OptimusPrimeSG is a review video for Road Rage, the recolor and retool of last month's Masterpiece Tracks.

We have the video embedded, so click through and check it out to find out more about this figure!
OptimusPrimeSG next up has a video looking at Clampdown, the police redeco of Masterpiece Red Alert, who joins an ever lengthening line of releases of that Lamborghini base body.

OptimusPrimeSG has produced videos for the assortment of Masterpiece figures that have released this month, and we're starting with his look at Bumblebee Red Body. TakaraTomy's I.O.U. for a Masterpiece Cliffjumper that is probably very far down the Masterpiece development line right now, it's probably not a good stand in for that character, but otherwise how is it? Watch the embedded video below to hear more about it!
