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...

Nosecone is a reuse of Brawl, possibly the worst mold in Combiner Wars. But one of the errors with Brawl's torso joint has been fixed! It's no longer nonfunctional, just weird and ugly. But even so, this Nosecone's TakaraTomy competition is the Rook mold, possibly the best mold in Combiner Wars. Oops. Click here to read and watch the review!
The boxset's New Guy, Scrounge is actually a pretty old guy, hailing from a 1986 Marvel comic. A friend of Blaster's who met an ill fate, Scrounge gets a second chance at life as a Technobot. Scrounge's Targetmaster buddy Cybaxx, though? Far as we know, he's entirely
new. Click here to read and watch the review!
Clobber is a T-Rex in silver, gold, and a dark metallic color. Stop me if you're heard this one... But while the Crashbash mold is great on its own, the Grimlock homage is damaged a bit by paint/plastic mismatch. Click here to read and watch the review!
RAC likes Wheelie, especially as a robot. And if you're one of the lucky few who gets a Wheelie with no tab problems, you'll love it! But if you're not, transforming him may be a thing for you - but you'll still probably like
him quite a bit. Click here to read and watch the review!
You can call him Terri-Bull, or you can call him Horri-Bull, but you can also
call him the second-best figure of the wave. Today RAC wraps up his coverage of the first wave of the Titan Masters pricepoint, and declares it a success! Click here to go to watch and read the review!
The second entry in the Titan Masters Wave 1 assortment, Nightbeat is weird. Shooting for G1 accuracy but doing so with a bizarre expression and not enough paint, this seems like a compromise that isn't going to please much of anybody. Click here to go to the review!
A double-issue to tie it all up, and every wild idea left in the memory banks gets thrown at us. Transformers vs. GI Joe #13
is written by Tom Scioli and John Barber with art, colors, and lettering by Scioli. Click through to read the review!
Someone is taking a very forceful look into the minds of Decepticons... and the most obvious suspect is kinda
the ruler of Cybertron. But like everything with Starscream, it's not that simple. The third ongoing book is here! "07:00:00"
is written by Mairghread Scott with art by Sara Pitre-Durocher and colors by Priscilla Tramontano. Click here to read the review!
