Generation 1 Reviews




Personally I'm not a big fan of the misleading type of April Fool's Day prank. I'd rather just do something silly. So today, we have a review of a landmark figure: the first third-party figure to be knocked off and sold in an Easter basket at US mass-market. Appearing in baskets at Walgreens, Robot Warrior Series Airplane Model began live as Fansproject Explorer, which in turn was based on Combaticon Blast-Off. Continue to full review




Things get hairy as Trypticon and Fortress Maximus both come gunning for Metroplex! Can the Autobot/GI Joe alliance stand firm against the Decepticobra forces? Tunnel Rat's Fantastic Journey To The Center Of Fortress Maximus is written by Tom Scioli and John Barber, with art, colors and lettering by Scioli. Continue to full review




Lastly(for now) Marcus Goh has posted an image-heavy review of Year of the Goat Optimus Prime! GoatConvoy is a reuse of the G2 Laser Optimus Prime mold, later used for Scourge and e-Hobby Ultra Magnus. It sports faction symbolless discs here, and something about the hot energon pink projectiles is really appealing. Keep reading for selected images and a link to Mr. Goh's full review!




Screenwriter Marcus Goh has posted a brief but photo-laden review of the G1 Insecticons reissue set! He seems to be very pleased with the purchase, and gives a good look at Bombshell and Skrapnel vs. their modern Legends counterparts. Keep reading for selected photos and a link to the review!




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!




A funeral is crashed on Earth, and the "deceased" crashes back! And a trial within the walls of Metroplex is a mockery of justice. Meanwhile two robot autopsies are planned, one for each planet... only one of the subjects is still alive! The Transformers Vs. GI Joe #3 is written by Tom Scioli and John Barber, with art, colors and lettering by Scioli. Continue to full review




In the ruins of Harmonex, Dead Trypticon lies dreaming... until Megatron comes to wake him. Primacy #1 is written by Chris Metzen and Flint Dille with art by Livio Ramondelli, letters by Chris Mowry.Continue to 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!




Jazz reminisces over his role in the war and the peace as he infiltrates a human base to locate a Cybertronian life sign. Things, of course, do not go according to plan. "Earthfall Part 4: Full Fathom Five" is written by John Barber with art by Andrew Griffith with flashbacks by Guido Guidi and Brendan Cahill. Colors by Josh Perez and Joana Lafuente. Continue to full review




First contact between Cybertron and Earth (as represented by GI Joe) didn't go so well. Second contact is coming... and it couldn't be any worse, right? "I Saw Three Ships" is written by Tom Scioli and John Barber, with art, colors, and lettering by Scioli. Continue to full review
