Few would guess the last piece to be reissued from the original Transformers Generation 1 series would be the music scores. Even though the original cartoons have been reissued, updated and restored multiple times. Fans that have been asking for copies of the Original Sound Tracks (OST) masters have finally gotten theirs, on vinyl of all things. IF, they were fast enough to buy one of the 2,000 copies that sold out in less than 10 minutes. The good news is a second pressing is in the works.
We've followed Robot Politics through to its natural conclusion through Robots In Disguise
on to Till All Are One.
What's the next logical step? Add wizards, of course! Transformers Vs. Visionaries

Something a lot of us have been anticipating since the Saturday of Botcon 2016, our long-awaited - and long-requested - updated version of Overlord from Masterforce! Or maybe IDW. I suppose he was mildly important there, too... I was able to get my hands on one of these a little bit ahead of the US distribution, and so we've got a detailed video review for you to check out today going over the figure, its vehicle modes, and what it shares with Sky Shadow.

and might be best skipped if you have not read but intend to read the comic. It may also be worth skipping if you're a diehard fan of the book, because it explains why I'm not anymore. Click here to read the review
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
featuring video, plus text and (lots of) photos!
