Generation 1
Generation 1 Reviews




Kickback is a nice toy with just enough new complexity introduced to the G1 transformation. It's the intangibles that drag it down just a bit... like how well it fits in with the other two Insecticons and how well its Titan Master interaction works (see:grasshopper-shaped footbath.) None of that sinks a great toy... but by fixing either or both of those things it could be just that much better. Click here to read and watch the review!




Bumblebee's okay. He's flawed, but unlike Wheelie most of the flaws don't interfere with the ordinary operation of the toy. With the still-truly-excellent Classics Bumblebee mold out there, though, it's a bit tougher to forgive some of those flaws... Click here to read and watch our review of Bumblebee!




Sixshot is the most anticipated Leader Class release in Titans Return - until Overlord, anyway. But it made a big impact when it debuted at a show in mid-2016. In hand, well, it has its ups and downs. It's not really beholden to the linewide gimmick of Titans Return which some will see as a distinct benefit. But it's also trying to do a lot within a very strict budget, and that's something that rarely turns out beneficial.

It's Metroplex versus an army of undead Titans, and everyone on Cybertron and within the Council of Worlds is giving everything they can to help him! ...except for one person, and Starscream is very much not happy with them. Desperate Times is written by Mairghread Scott with art by Sara Pitre-Durocher, and colors by Joana Lafuente. Click here to go to the review!




Optimus Prime allows several colonists to join his efforts on Earth. But a mission involving Cybertronian derived technology goes poorly, requiring Optimus to intervene personally and again witness for himself that the world is anything but accepting of the future he envisions. Recalling his days as Orion Pax, super-cop, he reflects on a Cybertron unaccepting of the future its then-Prime held in mind for it. "New Cybertron Part 1: To Walk Among The Chosen" written by John Barber, art by Kei Zama, colors by Josh Burcham.Click here to go to the review!




More Than Meets The Eye continues, and the title of the issue is enough of a spoiler that we don't feel right about using it here! So, Transformers: Lost Light #1 is written by James Roberts with art by Jack Lawrence, colors by Joana Lafuente and John-Paul Bove. Click here to read the review! (And as always, we've striven to be as spoiler-free as possible!)




When we last left Titans Return in More Than Meets The Eye #57, the actual return of the actual Titans had been delayed... until now! How will Windblade, Starscream, and the rest of the Council respond? Ping is written by Mairghread Scott with art by Sara Pitre-Durocher, and colors by Joana Lafuente and Priscilla Tramontano. Click here to read the review, but be warned that there are Spoilers that have already been revealed in the solicitations.




Who is Rom and why did he kill four GI Joes, including team founder Joe Colton? Tragic misunderstandings spiral into all-out war in Revolution Chapter Two: The Divine Source of Liberty as written by John Barber and Cullen Bunn, with art by Fico Ossio and colors by Sebastian Cheng.

Alpha Trion's biggest flaw is how much inspiration he draws from versions of Alpha Trion that you may not know or care about - an oddity considering obsessed with G1 fidelity the designers have proven themselves on figures like Blurr and Scourge. That's the biggest flaw - and a subjective one at that - but not the only one. Click here to read and watch our review of Alpha Trion!




Astrotrain is just Sentinel Prime. Or actually Sentinel Prime was more or less a "pretool" of Astrotrain. And while the War Train mode might not be our train of choice, it's a pretty solid triple-changer. And Darkmoon is probably the best round-headed Titan Master so far!

RAC reviews SDCC Tablet Soundwave! It's a nice figure, about Voyager sized, and you might think the articulation is a mite weird and limited in places - but that's a tradeoff for its one trick. And what a trick. Click here to read the review!




Computron is pretty neat! The ankles and other weaknesses in the legs may bother you a bit, but they don't ruin the figure for RAC. The legs aren't Menasor bad, though. It's a good looking figure, and has the most new parts in a Combiner Wars boxset since Victorion. Click here to read and watch the review!




Strafe... he's so close to being the best possible Strafe! Some detachable guns and some red thighs, and if half of what I've heard about Unite Warriors Blast Off is true, this Strafe - based on Combiner Wars Wave 2 Aerialbot Air Raid - would blow him out of the water. Or, er, sky. ...space? One of those. Click here to read and watch the review!




Afterbreaker is a remold of TakaraTomy's Deluxe Groove that may entail less mayhem to get a hold of. And if you're a one of each mold kind of person, Afterbreaker - formerly Afterburner - is the better of the two to have. Click here to watch and read the review!




Lightsteed... well, he's a red Streetwise. Which doesn't really match G1 Lightspeed no matter how much the deco tries to tell you otherwise. He's a good robot, a car whose paint doesn't match its shape, a decent arm, and a problematic leg. Unfortunately, leg is his official position on Computron...
