Rum-Maj's plans are disrupted by the Sharkticons' sudden change of heart. As the battle comes to its conclusion and the lives of Junkions, Cybertronians, and Earthlings hang in the balance, Optimus Prime reflects internally on how he got here, and whether he's changed as much as he might like.

Optimus Prime and Pyra Magna meet at the singularity in the ruins of Crystal City to (hopefully but probably not successfully) settle their differences. As Starscream eavesdrops, Prime talks about the friends he lost in that place, including the story of how he met Bumblebee. Pyra Magna in turn has a story to tell, about how the Torchbearers' current incarnation came to be. "Ghost Stories" is written by John Barber with art by Priscilla Tramontano and colors by Thomas Deer, Josh Perez, and John-Paul Bove. Click here to go to the review!
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. Click here for the review of Sixshot

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

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

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!
