The Earth based Autobots are doing cleanup operations in the aftermath of the final battle with Galvatron''s Decepticon faction. Meanwhile, Earth''s new Autobot City has its first visitor, none other than the resurrected Sentinel Prime, and he has some business with Alpha Trion...

Computron is pretty neat! The ankles and other weaknesses in the legs may bother you a bit, but they don't ruin the figure for RAC. The legs aren't Menasor bad, though. It's a good looking figure, and has the most new parts in a Combiner Wars boxset since Victorion. Click here to read and watch the review!
Scattershot v2.0 is definitely an improvement over the Betatron version. The International Edition is going to add yet more features, but I feel like within Hasbro's typical limitations this is the best possible Scattershot we could have gotten. Click here to read and watch the review!
Strafe... he's so close to being the best possible Strafe! Some detachable guns and some red thighs, and if half of what I've heard about Unite Warriors Blast Off is true, this Strafe - based on Combiner Wars Wave 2 Aerialbot Air Raid - would blow him out of the water. Or, er, sky.
...space? One of those. Click here to read and watch the review!
Afterbreaker is a remold of TakaraTomy's Deluxe Groove that may entail less mayhem to get a hold of. And if you're a one of each mold kind of person, Afterbreaker - formerly Afterburner - is the better of the two to have. Click here to watch and read the review!
Starscream has ordered Windblade to spy on the Combaticons - or else her secrets will become known to all. It's a difficult position to be in - but unlike Starscream, Windblade has friends.

First a word of warning: The Transformers #56 was written to be published before this issue. The shipping order got switched however, which means that this issue has quite the spoiler in it - but one that would be inconsequential at this point without the recap paragraph on the credits page explaining exactly what's what. So while it may not be specifically necessary to skip reading this issue until after TF 56 comes out - the timeline will just be a bit out of whack, mainly - definitely skip over the credits page so you can go through without the context that spoils everything.

Lightsteed... well, he's a red Streetwise. Which doesn't really match G1 Lightspeed no matter how much the deco tries to tell you otherwise. He's a good robot, a car whose paint doesn't match its shape, a decent arm, and a problematic leg. Unfortunately, leg is his official position on Computron...

Nosecone is a reuse of Brawl, possibly the worst mold in Combiner Wars. But one of the errors with Brawl's torso joint has been fixed! It's no longer nonfunctional, just weird and ugly. But even so, this Nosecone's TakaraTomy competition is the Rook mold, possibly the best mold in Combiner Wars. Oops. Click here to read and watch the review!
The boxset's New Guy, Scrounge is actually a pretty old guy, hailing from a 1986 Marvel comic. A friend of Blaster's who met an ill fate, Scrounge gets a second chance at life as a Technobot. Scrounge's Targetmaster buddy Cybaxx, though? Far as we know, he's entirely
new. Click here to read and watch the review!
Clobber is a T-Rex in silver, gold, and a dark metallic color. Stop me if you're heard this one... But while the Crashbash mold is great on its own, the Grimlock homage is damaged a bit by paint/plastic mismatch. Click here to read and watch the review!
Onward into Titan Masters Wave 2! Skytread inherits Terri-Bull's vehicle and Titan Master body but has a new face and color scheme all his own, both derived from G1 Duocon Flywheels. He's really good, but if you already have Terri-Bull, it'll come down to your relationship with completism and how badly you want a (really nice, admittedly!) Flywheels head.

Don't let your Nucleon break! Find out about the problems and learn solutions to save Galvatron's Titan Master in this review! But aside from issues stemming from the Titan Master, Galvatron actually turned out surprisingly nice! A small thing or two still afflict it, but we're close to getting that ideal Classics Galvatron here! Click here

Galvatron's plans on Earth have been ruined, but as he blasts off again in Astrotrain, Optimus Prime is unwilling to let him escape to become a threat again, sending Arcee and Cosmos in pursuit. On Cybertron, Starscream's worries grow when he recognizes the newly risen Titan as the same one that proclaimed him "chosen". All the while, the president of the United States prepares for the escalation of war against the Cybertronians.

Sentinel Prime is back! ...and what's the one constant about Sentinel Prime across all universes? He's a jerk.
"The Last Autobot" is a Titans Return
