Generations Reviews




Jazz reminisces over his role in the war and the peace as he infiltrates a human base to locate a Cybertronian life sign. Things, of course, do not go according to plan. "Earthfall Part 4: Full Fathom Five" is written by John Barber with art by Andrew Griffith with flashbacks by Guido Guidi and Brendan Cahill. Colors by Josh Perez and Joana Lafuente.

Endgame! Windblade must discover the truth of the bombing, Metroplex's deterioration, and how it fits together. But with support falling away, time is running out and she may have to give up everything to find the answer. Written by Mairghread Scott, art by Sarah Stone. Read the full review




Rattrap getting on the list of Generations remakes was a surprise at the time. But not really an unwelcome one. Plus it brings us close to the main first season Maximal cast of Beast Wars being completely remade. We're only short an Optimus Primal taking after the style of the original. But it might be nice to see the Predacons get some more attention... Continue reading




Folded in to the IDW universe to justify placement in a pack-in comic book, Tankor has since become a supporting cast member in the Windblade miniseries, beginning to gain an identity besides being the result of product placement. Which is good, because this Tankor is probably still a little too small to interact well with Maximals... Read the review!




ExVee finishes off the most recent wave of Transformers Generations Legends with Tailgate, based on the iteration of the character from IDW's More Than Meets The Eye! But it's not exactly the little gem that Skrapnel/Shrapnel was... Watch the review now!




In a new TFormers.com video review, ExVee takes a look at Legends Class Skrapnel and Reflector, a long overdue Classics take on Shrapnel with a surprisingly well-detailed Reflector partner figure! Click here to continue to the review!




Youtube user Benscollectables has uploaded a pair of video reviews featuring the still unreleased pair of Generations Rattrap and Tankor, due very soon from their reshuffled case assortment. Check out both embedded videos for a good look at each toy and to find out what to expect when these start hitting retail!




Last of the wave, but certainly not least! Completing a trio of Seeker figures all released at regular retail within the space of a year, War For Cybertron Skywarp may only merit a cameo in his own pack-in comic, but he's an Excellent toy regardless. Continue to full review




It's the figure nobody expected! A reasonably obscure Double Targetmaster from 1988, Scoop returns to the modern Transformers toyline with his signature gimmick completely intact. Plus, he's amazingly, vividly orange. Continue to full review




A Mini-Con combiner that isn't a fragile, fragile statue? A combiner team whose robot modes aren't uniformly bad? An Armada-style Mini-Con Team with six out of seven good modes? The Mini-Con Assault Team AKA Centuritron is all of these things and more. Continue to full review




As we enter the 30th anniversary of the Transformers, Generations is once again featuring figures inspired by all corners of the Transformers universe(s). Whether you want him as Armada Starscream or Dark Cybertron Starscream (or both), this is a figure with decent articulation, an interesting mix of fidelity and deviation from the source material, and a lack of paint that hurts the homage factor. Continue to full review




Waspinator was such a favorite with fans during Beast Wars that plans to kill him off at the start of the second season were changed. Considering that, it's not really surprising Waspinator ended up as one of the few Beast Wars characters to be included in generations as it observes the brand's 30th anniversary. And between Universe in 2008 and the upcoming Rattrap, we have updated toys for all of Scott McNeil's first season characters. That may very well say something about how memorable his performance made them as much as anything else. Read the full review.




I do love when we get new toys based on G2 stuff. I don't have everything within that theme, but I try to get whatever I can because G2 was the start of Transformers for me. Beast Wars may be the general standard I hold other things up to, but G2 resides in a special place with me. So even while Megatron did little to wow me, I was looking forward to the Dreadwing remold that would give this mold a purpose in my collection. Read the full review




When released as Bumblebee, this mold had no particular design problems. It's a bit on the basic side, but it's pretty solid. Where Bumblebee fell hard was the deco. I don't just mean the paint, even though some of that was utterly atrocious, but also in the kind of plastic used for a lot of the parts. It had a terrible visual quality that ruined the entire thing. Goldfire comes back with a whole new set of plastic colors, and to the great benefit of the toy, none of them look like they have a second job as candle wax. Read the full review




Skids has had more than a little bit of an image facelift since he was adopted in to the main cast of More Than Meets The Eye. Before this, his most notable trait could either be considered as having fought and defeated Ravage in Marvel G1 before disappearing in to limbo for a few years according to the UK continuity, or just largely vanishing without a word in the US issues. Plus his utter unimportance in the cartoon, it's no surprise that the old days of the online fandom made a joke of his functional non-existence. Read the full review!
