Hoist is the foregone conclusion. From the moment you find out there will be a Generations Trailbreaker (or cutter, whichever) you know that it's only a matter of time before it gets Hoisted. But I can hardly complain about that. While Trailmix might finish out the 1984 Diaclone car updates, Hoist is another part of piecing together the 1985 lineup, making him no less important.

Back in December when I reviewed Starscream, I was very much in support of the idea of a new set of seekers drawn off of that mold. Less than a year later, I've been rewarded with my next installment on that plan, and Skywarp is already on the books to hit sometime earlyish next year. The promise of the core three seekers in a total stretch of a little more than a year must be a relief to many given it took nearly five years to do the same thing using the Classics mold at US retail.

We saved the best of the wave for last! Trailcutter is a long-awaited character finally getting the Deluxe treatment- and a solid Generations figure to boot. Forcefield Face sadly not included, but go get him and pass his comic around! Continue to full review
Megatron was to be a black tactical bomber once before, you know. In G2 a recolor of Dreadwing and Smokescreen was intended to be Megatron and Starscream before it was canceled. I guess better almost twenty years later than never? The really funny part about getting the stealth bomber figure now? Megatron dumped this body in the ongoing right around the same time the Spotlight issue was published. Read The Full Review
IDW has been using the Orion Pax concept for a little while already, and that fits in with the direction the main Transformers books have gone of late. Hasbro's entry in to the Orion fan club is very unexpected, especially going so far as having IDW produce them a brand new story to sell with their toy. I guess Orion got important enough to prompt a legal claim on the name. But really, an Optimus by any other name, right? Read The Full Review
We've been pretty overdue for a new Classics Bumblebee mold. Even counting War For Cybertron (I prefer to pretend that one doesn't even exist, mind you) it's been about four years since the last new G1 type Bumblebee mold. Leading off a series of IDW design inspired toys, this toy has quite a bit to live up to, especially since the original Classics Bumblebee in 2006 was a very nice toy even in its 2010 rerelease.

Thanks to Shartimusprime who has shared his video review of the Transformers Generations SDCC 2013 Convention Exclusive action figure set. Get the scoop on the the biggest Transformers toy every made! From his robot the to base and carrier modes, this figure is just packed with transforming goodness that you can see in the video and gallery below.
YouTube reviewer Peaugh has posted a video review of the upcoming IDW-inspired stealth bomber Megatron! See the video for a rundown of the figure including a size comparison to Beast Hunters Sharkticon Megatron - and unlike a lot of coverage of this mold to date, the correct
Thanks to YouTube member Transformermegazord, AKA benscollectables, for posting a video review of the upcoming Generations 2013 Orion Pax figure! Watch the review of the young Optimus Prime- as seen in IDW's recent Spotlight series - for a detailed look at the figure as well as size comparisons to the Classics Voyager Optimus Prime mold.
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.
