Once more from our friend on the forums TMan978 we have a video to share. The wave 3 Legends assortment is finished off with this review of Gnaw, the troop-build bait for 2017's Generations offerings! Good thing it's packed multiple to a case. You can watch the video embedded below to get a good idea of how this figure works in practice, and to see even more, you can go to our Titans Return Gnaw photo gallery
as well! It all starts just below, so keep reading.
Once again straight from our forums, TMan978 has shared a new video with us. Continuing through the newest Legends assortment, today we have Kickback, the very long-awaited final member of the original Insecticon group. The video shows some thorough comparisons with earlier entries Bombshell and Skrapnel (Shrapnel), plus the usual transformation demo and looks at the toy's two modes individually. The video is embedded below, so click through and watch now!
Thanks to our friend on the forums, TMan978, we've got a new video tonight showing off Legends Class Bumblebee from Titans Return wave 3. While most everyone has focused on Gnaw out of that wave, Bumblebee has flown a little under the radar since this assortment started to become available. In the video, we get to see the robot mode's detail and poseability, the transformation, and a great look at the vehicle mode. The video is embedded below, so click through to watch!
Thanks to our forums member chuckdawg1999, we've got a very early video review of Titans Return Sixshot to share. The video serves as a good walkthrough of each transformation, even attempting a version of the "Wingwolf" mode invented for The Headmasters
series. The video does also confirm what we suspected: The Titan Master need not be removed for any transformation, allowing for a basically "perfect transformation" if one so desires. The video comes in, understandably, at about 26 minutes. It's embedded below, so click through to take a look!
Chuck from our forums has shared another quick video with us. This time it's Fangry from Titans Return wave 3. The new Titan Master replicates the most memorable visuals of the original iteration of the character, focusing on the weird werewolf/bat monster thing. ...which now turns in to a dragon. Well, everybody needs a hobby, I suppose. There's also a weapon mode which sure does exist! We've embedded the video, so click through to have a look!
Our forums member chuckdawg1999 has sent along his video review for one of the wave 3 Titan Masters. Sawback is an homage to Lione, one of a set of obscure Autobot Master Warriors available in Japan during the run of The Headmasters
. In this video, we get an overview of Sawback, from shield mode, to lion, and then to Titan Master vehicle, with a quick look at the Titan Master Sawback itself. The video is embedded below, keep reading to have a look.
We've got another video from John Garringer to share. The newest review is Twinferno from Titans Return Deluxe Wave 3. This figure represents the Monsterbot Doublecross, who probably had his most prominent appearance in fiction in the Japanese The Headmasters
cartoon. This video shows off both modes, a walkthrough of the transformation, and some handy height references with other Classics-style figures. The video is embedded below, so take a look!
Thanks to Matt Guzy from Awesome Toy Blog, we've got a full video review series for the just-released in the US Liokaiser Combiner Wars boxset. Unique retools make for a reimagined take on the Transformers Victory combiner character, centered around Dezaras, and featuring an Arms Micron extra team member. The full series is collected together in one playlist for easy viewing, and we've got it embedded below. Click through and start watching!
John Garringer has uploaded a review video to Youtube for Triggerhappy, from Deluxe wave 3 of Titans Return. Besides being obviously really nicely styled as all the photos so far have demonstrated, the video conveys an extra strength of the figure in showing a really interestingly engineered transformation that starts to break out of the recurring pattern Deluxes had started falling in since Combiner Wars. The video is embedded below, check it out!
Despite numerous photos already released for it, Iron Factory's Lord Scorpion figure, based on G1 Scorponok, never had a clear comparative scale revealed. Thanks to a video review by Pancrazi, that has finally changed. The figure, while very bulky, seems to be just a hair taller than a current Deluxe as seen in the video. The video otherwise runs through the three modes and shows poseability - as well as what looks like a very sturdy build. The video is in Chinese, but the visuals are clear to follow. It's embedded below, so click through for a nice demo of this figure!
Our forums member TMan978 has shared with us his video review of the recently released Masterpiece Thrust! The second of the conehead retools of the revised Masterpiece Seeker body, Thrust drew concerns related to the large wings attached to the legs, but that's at least one worry that can be laid to rest by this review, as they seem to have very little negative impact on posing. To see that as well as find out the other details about the toy, keep reading to watch the full review embedded below!
Diecast from Radio Free Cybertron has come through once again with an early Titans Return review! This time on his Youtube channel he's showing us Titans Return Wave 3's Hot Rod, a very long-awaited updating of the character. For those keeping score, this is the first new Classics style mold for the character since 2006! Diecast does report some mild individual QC issues on his copy, but hopefully those won't be prevalent in the overall production run. We've got the video embedded below, so click through and start watching!
Our very own TMan978 on the forums brings us another CHILL REVIEW. This chill review has been a long time coming, as we get a look at the Walgreens Exclusive Transformers Titans Return Brainstorm & Teslor. Read on to see the full video review below.
Since we got a deluxe G2 Prime in Reveal The Shield, I was hoping for a larger scale version that looses the movie aesthetic. With this Titans Return figure, we get that, and it is good. While I would've preferred a separate cab and trailer, I fully understand the design choices we got. The only real negative I can find are the loose hips, but those aren't nearly as bad as they could be.
Diecast from Radio Free Cybertron got in a special little something over the weekend, a small fleet of Legends Class Titans Return Gnaw. The delightfully design-faithful updating of the G1 movie Sharkticon is shown off in a full length video review on Diecast's Youtube review channel, where you can see some good size comparisons and a run through of the transformation from robot to tooth monster. We've embedded the review below, so you can get a good look at the toy that everybody is going to want to troop build!
The figure is just out in Japan, but already we are seeing a video review of this figure on YouTube by way of reviewer tumacher.
Get a look at this Masterpiece Edition in a two-part review that covers the Beast Wars Maximal character out of the box and all the details on his robot and alternate gorilla modes, for the complete look at this new release from Takara.
Power Surge Sideswipe is part of the simplified line of RID figures. Sideswipe is a chunky robot, that reminds me of 80s Transformer. Activating the sounds is a bit awkward, with or without the Minicon attached. Most collectors will pass on this but I can really see kids enjoying it.
Having caught everyone by surprise with an unannounced debut at retail last month, we've got a review from our forums member TMan978 giving us a great look at Warrior Class Starscream! Much like Megatronus last year, this is debuting first as a Clash of The Transformers Toys R Us exclusive, but should appear at general retail a little later with some small variation to set the two apart. We've got the video embedded, so check out the full post to watch and get all the info on this figure!
