I don't think anyone was disappointed when Toy Fair 2013 revealed a new Springer that was a full representation of the character's status as a triple changer. It became more impressive shortly after when the Hasbro reps went on to reveal that Springer had been under development for two years to get everything right. With twice the design time as the average Transformer, this had to be something pretty fantastic, right? Continue to the full review.
Even before the addition of the Disc Minion gimmick, Soundblaster is my favorite figure in a very long time. He's huge, satisfyingly bulky, and fun, and feels completely out of place in the 2012 toyline- in an entirely good way. Continue to full review
The first in the series of five Combaticons, I don't know if Onslaught specifically has been much anticipated, but he kicks off what is for sure one of the most looked forward to groups of 2012's retail Transformers product. Onslaught has the greatest burden on his shoulders - literally. It's easy to anticipate bad results when a figure is responsible for becoming the backbone of a bigger structure, but the actual sacrifices may not be as severe as you expect in practice...

I wanted this Prime for possibly the dumbest reason ever: there's an Ultra Magnus coming from the same mold, and with the price-cutting shrink in Deluxe stature, War For Cybertron Optimus Prime would be significantly taller than Ultra Magnus. I can't accept that! Continue to full review
With this bio establishing itself in Transformers: The Movie events, let's just assume that by "encouraged to spend extended leave," it really means Magnus sent a box of Ratchet's wreckage to Junk and said "Hey, see if you guys can fix this." Counting Wreck-Gar and Scrapheap from my main work over at figurereviews.com, this is my third pass with this mold, and it's pleasantly surprising just how distinct each one has been owing simply to deco changes and unique heads each time around.

If I'm not mistaken, this is at least the second or third Decepticon Megatron's supposed to be terrified of, or at least wary. Let's see... Straxus/Darkmount and Thunderwing, too. Megatron's quite the worrier, it seems! Sky Shadow is about as obscure a figure as you're going to get in Generations: while Darkmount was based on a US comic character and Thunderwing a US-released toy with a lot of fiction behind it, Sky Shadow is from Transformers: Victory, a Japanese-only release.

Wheeljack hasn't had a good G1 representation in a long time. There was Armada, but that character was Wheeljack in name only. Then there was Energon, but due to name right issues they went with Downshift. Then Cybertron came and got us closer, but the colors where all wrong. Generations looks to finally give us an honest to goodness Wheeljack that harkens back to the 1984 original. To check out the rest of the review, click here.
After 5yrs and much venting by fans, the seeker collection can finally be had by all. With Thundercracker's release in the Generations lineup, all 6 of the G1 seekers have now been offered via retail (even if Skywarp was a Target exclusive). But how does it compare to the BotCon version from 4yrs ago? Read this review

It happens every time, doesn't it? Right as the last (and usually most desirable) wave of figures hit prior to a new series starting up, pickings are extremely slim. One of these scarce figures is the re-introduction of Warpath, a G1 original who has been absent from shelves for far too long. To read the rest of the review, click here.
You couldn't have a Galvatron and a Cyclonus without a Scourge, now could you. Generations has sought to right the oversight during the Universe 2.0 releases with a fresh take on Scourge, now sporting a stealth jet alt mode. See how he stacks up in this review.
Slowly but surely, the newest wave of Generations figures are trickling on the shelves. One such figure is Sergeant Kup, who hasn't seen much action since the 1980s. He makes his glorious comeback, but should he adorn your collection? Read this review

Sometimes, Hasbro has a knack to hit a repaint right on the head. Other times, a repaint just seems like a quick way to throw something out at the expense of soiling the tribute. Skullgrin is a repaint (with a new head) of Darkmount. Does it hit on the head... or does it soil? The answer may lie in this review.
Believe it or not, Generations is on it's winding down before the release of Reveal The Shield. Going out with a bang, the last original mold for the Generations line will be the Super Pretender Thunderwing. Check out how this 22yr old mold translates into the modern day by reading this review.
Some of you have literally been waiting years for this. That day is now closer. With the widespread release of Dirge, only Thundercracker has yet to be represented in the retail market. Find out how Dirge stacks up with the 2007 BotCon version, as well as the G1 version, by reading this review.
Most people agree Drift is easily one of the best Deluxe molds of the year. It was only a matter of time before they repainted this great mold for another character. Their choice: Blurr. Blurr? Really?! Is this mold a good fit for Blurr? Want to click here and find out?
