The end has come. An army of Titans rise from Luna 1 to purge Cybertron at the command of Sentinel Prime. Prowl lies dead, Red Alert has joined Sentinel. With only Fortress Maximus and Cerebros left, how can Luna 1's protectors possibly save the day? "Last Light", written by James Roberts, art by Priscilla Tramontano, colors by Joana Lafuente.

Highbrow is one of those long awaited character updates in to a modern toy. Unfortunately those don't always go great on a first try. And when it's trying to carry forward engineering concepts from a previous figure, that seems to make it even more difficult! But, maybe Highbrow is okay if you just want to set it somewhere in robot mode and not try to do anything with it...? Click here

Chromedome reuses a great deal of engineering from Dead End, Streetwise, and all those related Combiner Wars figures. But this is no simple remake. Chromedome exceeds his predecessors in a number of ways and makes a surprisingly good figure! Click here to see the review

Alpha Trion's biggest flaw is how much inspiration he draws from versions of Alpha Trion that you may not know or care about - an oddity considering obsessed with G1 fidelity the designers have proven themselves on figures like Blurr and Scourge. That's the biggest
flaw - and a subjective one at that - but not the only
one. Click here to read and watch our review of Alpha Trion!
Astrotrain is just Sentinel Prime. Or actually Sentinel Prime was more or less a "pretool" of Astrotrain. And while the War Train mode might not be our train of choice, it's a pretty solid triple-changer. And Darkmoon is probably the best round-headed Titan Master so far!

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... "Titans Return: White Light" is written by John Barber and drawn by Livio Ramondelli. Click here to read the review!
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. "Things We Said We'd Never Do" is written by Mairghread Scott with art by Sara Pitre-Durocher and coloring by Joana Lafuente. Click here to read the review!
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!
