Arcee is still the same Generations mold with all its flaws. Save one - this figure has new hands in order to heft the massive Combiner Slayer sword! How did it turn out, and in the end is the entire set worth it? RAC weighs in on that issue and more! Continue to the review!
The SDCC Kre-O exclusive for the year is a pile of fun toys and references to pop culture, all plucked from 1985 and wrapped up in a spiffy yearbook package. And in addition to an attractive presentation, it's also the most cost-effective Comic-Con exclusive of the year! Continue to the review for video and photos!
So Hot Spot, Rook, and Streetwise were all pretty great, Blades is decent, and First Aid is okayish. But, how do the Protectobots do working together? RAC has the answers in his review of Defensor, the eagerly awaited third full combiner to join the Combiner Wars! Continue To The Review!
Streetwise is a patient and skilled tracker who would prefer to incapacitate and arrest his opponents rather than killing them. Fast but prone to overheating as a police car, he's perfectly fine bringing in Decepticons with their lives intact - if not maybe their arms or legs. Read on for the full review!
A gentle, kind-hearted Autobot, First Aid wants to heal everyone and everything. And as a member of the Protectobots he's set out to do just that with the help of his surgical fist lasers, (de)crystallizer cannon, and... Medical Axe? Read on for the full review!
Shanna O'Hara has a serious mental condition. She believes that she is part of a special military task force whose goal is to repel an invasion of giant, living robots. Can Doctor Mindelbinder help her overcome her delusions and return to her idyllic life in suburban Springfield? Headmasters

The newest member of the Protectobots, Rook is fresh out of Cybertronian Military Academy, and he's a tank. Well, an armored vehicle. But functionally he's a tank, the team's big bruiser. But a bruiser with a head for tactics - if he figures out how to apply them in the field. Continue to the review!
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
