Thanks to Snakas over at Autobase who has posted a simple review with images for the Beast Hunters Ultra Magnus voyater class action figure. Get a look at the repainted / remolded version of voyager Optimus Prime made over as Ultra Magnus. Our guess is the other mold was not used to save money on CGI modeling a new character, so we get a redux of the Optimus Prime character. Check out the images and review that has been translated from Japanese to english below for more details.
The mastermind behind the creation of the Predacons is here! Beast Hunters Shockwave features a couple of nifty and unobtrusive gimmicks but a pretty blah vehicle mode that prevents him from being a definitive rendition of everyone's favorite logic-driven cyclops. Continue to Full Review
Continuing directly off last season's cliffhanger ending, the first three episodes of Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters begins to introduce major changes from what we knew in the first two seasons of the show. If only we could count on the majority of them to be followed through on. Read the full review! (WARNING: Contains spoilers!)

I never bought either of the previous Prime Voyager Primes. Honestly, the design did little for me and the show even less to motivate me towards a purchase. But when I saw this toy for the first time, I knew I had to get it. Every once in a while, it's possible to look at stock photos of a toy, and have a moment of complete clarity where you understand everything about it. For me this was one of those occasions.

Predaking is a little larger than the average Voyager last year, and more "back to basics" in terms of execution. This is what many had expressed desires for the pricepoint to get back to, and hopefully Predaking shows promise in how that's been delivered. Read the full review.

Thundertron is a significant figure in a lot of ways: the first toy made from a character in a novel, first of a new faction, first Beast Mode-sporting figure in Prime-Robots in Diguise, and one of a handful of space pirate Transformers. But, is he any good? Continue to full review

No longer a mere white recolor of Optimus Prime awaiting power-up armor that will never come, Ultra Magnus is now That Big Blue Guy With The Hammer. Far as I'm concerned, that's a serious step up. This Magnus, which has yet to be represented in the Prime animation, is available in both Cyberverse Commander and Voyager sizes, so somebody clearly likes the design. Continue to full review
The recent history of Transformers games on the Wii has been less than impressive, thanks in large part to needing to be redeveloped off the framework of games for more current systems. Transformers Prime: The Game moves to break this trend of shaky-at-best ports by developing a new software title specifically for the Nintendo platforms. This effort has definitely not been misplaced, as we seem finally to have a Transformers game for the Wii that's actually worth playing. Continue to full review.
