Of the three Transformers SDCC related exclusives, this is the one that missed. A $50 version of a already-overpriced $30 toy with fancy but easily-damaged packaging, and a chance for, but no guarantee of, an interesting Transformers: The Last Knight
keepsake. Put it this way: to differentiate it from "Primitive Prime"
in preparing materials for these reviews, RAC dubbed this one "Pointless Prime." Click here to read and watch the review, and see the gallery!
Primitive Prime would've been cool even without the benefit of being only $5 more than a Leader class figure usually is. But he's also that - if you got it in the very
brief window it was available. But he's a fun recolor, has a great new set of accessories, and his head turns into a tiny robot named Shreddicus Maximus.

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!
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!
It's our third day looking at the SDCC Exclusive Combiner Wars Devastator set, and in this video it's all about Hook! Has it managed to be one of the better representatives of the team, or do evils lie hidden here, head and shoulders above the other Constructicons? More videos will follow on the remaining members of the team, so keep watching to see it all! Meanwhile, click here

In part one of a three-part series looking at the Combiner Hunters boxset, RAC reviews Windblade! Looking slightly Super Saiyan and sporting the invisbility-granting Spectrospear, the Fan-Built Bot is still sadly the weakest of the three molds in the set. But the new deco is pretty nice, and the fan on her head is finally usable! Continue to the review!
As promised during The Unboxening, ExVee is taking a look at each of the Constructicons individually, starting with Scrapper! How does the famed Elbowless One otherwise hold up? And can the chrome chest even be tolerated by the eyes of man? More videos will be coming very soon for the rest of the team, so keep watching for ongoing updates! Meanwhile, click here

I'm actually surprised this figured wasn't originally named Huffer back in the Cybertron series, it fits so well. Anyways, he shares Armorhide's COE semi mode. He is mainly yellow with blue accents and some orange showing on the front bumper. There is also a splash of green below the passenger windshield. Scripted on his doors is "Cybertron Wrecker Service". Read Review
Springer lost a mode, settling to be an armored transport. He shares his mold with Cybertron Defense Hot Shot. Primarily a light gray in color, there is plenty of fluorescent green thrown in along with some blue and yellow. While the green harkens back to his G1 color scheme, it looks slightly out of place on an armored vehicle. Yet, strangely, it looks halfway decent as well. Read Review
Weirdwolf borrows his mold from Cybertron Snarl, which was also a wolf. The color scheme is similar to his G1 counterpart, that is to say kinda gaudy. He is primarily yellow with forest green, white and orange accents. Not the kind of colors you see paired up often. Read Review
Alpha Trion was to be one of last year's exclusives, but for reasons unknown he wasn't released until this year. He shares Cybertron Vector Prime's alt mode of an interstellar craft. The colors are mistakenly A3's. However, the combination looks odd on this figure. He is primarily a lavender color with crimson red and white accents. Read Review
When BotCon announced a 6th mystery figure that was exclusive only to Primus package buyers who attended the show, they made it sound like it was another Decepticon. However, that was not the case. Turns out the figure was Mirage, which is featured in the exclusive comic. Mirage is the Classics version. However, this figure is done entirely of clear blue PVC. No paint apps or stickers of any type appear on him besides the rub sign towards the rear. This is a representation of his cloaking ability. He retains his F1 race car alt mode. Read Review
Dirge is an exact repaint of Ramjet. He retains his G1 paint scheme of blue with gold and gold accents. Unfortunately, his wing makeup is also exact to Ramjet's. It's a shame they couldn't give the fuselage tailfins to him that he had in G1, but nothing's perfect. Dirge also suffers the same fate as Thrust and Ramjet... the visible head in alt mode. With the head pointing on the floor, it's not a big issue. His transformation is identical to Ramjet's.
Bugbite is a repaint of the Classics Bumblebee figure. He is white with purple graphics. The headlights are also shaded in purple. Some people have called this gothic looking. I can see where that impression is thrown off. I had a QC issue (go fig) with the roof not lining up to the hatch leaving a big gap. Besides that issue, it's every bit as good as Bumblebee. Bugbite is also equipped with the Waverider accessory. Read Review
Dreadwind takes his mold from Jetfire and is a jet in alt mode. He is primarily white in color with some purple, gray and turquoise accents on the wings and belly. He has double barreled laser rifles on either side of his cockpit. Besides the fists sticking out towards the back, this mode is relatively clean. You can see where the armor snaps on. That's a sacrifice versus using pegs which would look worse when not in use. Read Review
