Generations Reviews




Hellbat exposits the depths of his villainous nefarity before ordering the deaths of Ratchet, Drift, and the late-arriving Grit in the chamber of the dormant stone army! Drift: Empire of Stone #3, written by Shane McCarthy, breakdowns by Guido Guidi, finishes by Stephen Baskerville, colors by John-Paul Bove. Read the full review




Rounding out the Wave 1 combiners is Ultra Prime! In terms of proportions and articulation, Ultra Prime suffers a bit in comparison to Superion, but is still a stable, articulated combiner of massive proportions. The mold won't see its full potential until it becomes Menasor in the coming months, but it's not bad. Continue to full review




Blackrock explains the unknown origin of civilization, while Prowl tries to put the past aside and work with Spike to achieve the goal they vaguely share. Meanwhile, Galvatron tries to convince Arcee that Prowl may not have anyone's best interests at heart other than his own. "The Onyx Interface Part Two: ONOFFON" written by John Barber, with art by Andrew Griffith, and colors by Josh Perez and Thomas Deer. Keep reading




Optimus Prime's Cybertronian vacation is interrupted before it begins as a string of violent murders strikes the ghettos outside Metroplex, and only he cares enough to see justice served for the dead Decepticons. Transformers: Punishment, written by John Barber, illustrated by Livio Ramondelli. Read the full review




Now that we've looked at all the Deluxes, there's only one thing left to do: break out the Voyagers and combine everything! Superion is specactular. A big, solid figure with good articulation and a massive gun. Which would be cause for a high rating if he weren't full of tinier men. Continue to full review




They sure make some weird looking jets nowadays. RAC concludes the Combiner Wars Wave 1 Deluxe reviews with an even odder man out than Alpha Bravo: the displaced Stunticon Dragstrip! If this is an indicator of the quality of the remaining Stunticons, we're in for a treat. Continue to full review




And now, the new guy! Alpha Bravo is subbing for Slingshot to make the Aerialbots less boring, and he largely succeeds. His chopper mode and arm mode have a few light hangups, but by no means is he a bad toy. Continue to full review




Previously known as Fireflight, Firefly's the only Aerialbot RAC owned as a kid, because it was the one with actual color. How does he stack up to Skydive, and how does he limb? And what is that gun of his? (SPOILER: It is totally a flamethrower.) Continue to full review




Time to look at the Combiner Wars Deluxes! Skydive is up first, giving us the first look at the unified Combiner Wars engineering. Robot, Jet, Arm, Leg... how does he stack up in all those modes? The Road to Superion begins now! Continue to Full Review




While Superion's review will come later, Silverbolt still has to stand on his own as a toy. How good is he at doing that, both metaphorically and physically? How did they handle Superion's gun with the big, silly wings on the sides? And what does a ratcheting joint look like from the inside? RAC answers all these questions and more in today's Combiner Wars review! Continue to full review




Voyager Optimus Prime is a Combiner Wars core, designed to combine with four robots who become Ultra Prime's limbs. RAC... does not have those robots yet. Historically, combiners don't always do well in their individual robot forms... so how does Optimus Prime stack up as a Voyager all on his own? Continue to full review




While we had assumed that Generations Chromia would be a remold of Arcee, she is in fact a remold of Arcee instead. Which is why it turned out to be okay that she shipped in the same assortment as Arcee. Also, she's the best of the three women we've gotten in Generations this year.




The long, long-awaited G1 Arcee figure is hitting stores now! RAC likes the figure, but some extremely otaku design choices detract from the overall enjoyability (and even G1 accuracy) of the figure in favor of making the Arcee of designers Hironori Kobayashi and Yuki "Kiss Players" Ohshima's very... personal dreams. Also, you currently have a 25% or less chance of getting fully functional hands. Continue to full review




They're from the future and they know a lot about history - a team from the Lost Light travels to Cybertron's past to protect Orion Pax, the logical target of Brainstorm's plan to change the timeline. But time travel never quite works out how you intend it to. "Elegant Chaos, Part 1: All Our Parlous Yesterdays" Written by James Roberts, art by Alex Milne, and colors by Joana Lafuente. Keep reading!




After he and Ratchet are taken prisoner by the Decepticon Gigatron, Drift is given a chance to win their freedom - by rejoining Gigatron as a Decepticon and leading him to a hidden army Drift discovered long ago. Drift: Empire of Stone #2, written by Shane McCarthy, breakdowns by Guido Guidi, finishes by Stephen Baskerville, and colors by John-Paul Bove. Read the full review!
