Rounding out the Wave 1 combiners is Ultra Prime! In terms of proportions and articulation, Ultra Prime suffers a bit in comparison to Superion, but is still a stable, articulated combiner of massive proportions. The mold won't see its full potential until it becomes Menasor in the coming months, but it's not bad. Continue to full review
Now that we've looked at all the Deluxes, there's only one thing left to do: break out the Voyagers and combine everything! Superion is specactular. A big, solid figure with good articulation and a massive gun. Which would be cause for a high rating if he weren't
full of tinier men. Continue to full review
They sure make some weird looking jets nowadays. RAC concludes the Combiner Wars Wave 1 Deluxe reviews with an even odder man out than Alpha Bravo: the displaced Stunticon Dragstrip! If this is an indicator of the quality of the remaining Stunticons, we're in for a treat. Continue to full review
Previously known as Fireflight, Firefly's the only Aerialbot RAC owned as a kid, because it was the one with actual color. How does he stack up to Skydive, and how does he limb? And what is that gun of his? (SPOILER:
It is totally a flamethrower.) Continue to full review
While Superion's review will come later, Silverbolt still has to stand on his own as a toy. How good is he at doing that, both metaphorically and physically? How did they handle Superion's gun with the big, silly wings on the sides? And what does a ratcheting joint look like from the inside? RAC answers all these questions and more in today's Combiner Wars review! Continue to full review
Transformers Legacy: The Art of Transformers Packaging
, by Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster is the newest entry in the realm of Transformers art books, and the latest offering from the team that brought us The Ark
and The Allspark Almanac
. But Transformers Legacy
goes in a different direction from prior art books which focused on the art of a particular video game or TV show. You may think you've already seen it all when
it comes to G1 and G2 box art, but you've never seen it like this. And I believe most everyone will find at least a few things within that they've never seen before! Read the full review!

The dub for Robots in Disguise in 2001 grabbed a lot of people's attention while it aired, but little has had ongoing staying power with most fans. Sky-Byte is one such element, thanks in no small part to the voice performance of Peter Spellos. Having previously been updated in a Botcon box set, as well as getting a new life in IDW's comic continuity, the character's popularity is well acknowledged. It's not too surprising for Sky-Byte to get a retail update in the 30th anniversary Generations line, but was Voyager really the right size class to put it in...? Keep reading!

Folded in to the IDW universe to justify placement in a pack-in comic book, Tankor has since become a supporting cast member in the Windblade miniseries, beginning to gain an identity besides being the result of product placement. Which is good, because this Tankor is probably still a little too small to interact well with Maximals... Read the review!

They opened the coffin.
And what was inside makes no sense... yet. But before all of that, all of this, there's The
Question: what was the outcome of Megatron's trial, and how did the greatest war criminal in Cybertronian history end up in a position of command on the Lost Light? "World, Shut Your Mouth Part 3: Predestination - A Beginner's Guide" is written James Roberts with art by Alex Milne. Colors by Joana Lafuente. Continue to the full review!
