The truth comes out. But which truth, how far, in what way, and to the benefit of who? And even after all those questions are answered, there's still Mayhem - and the Noisemaze - between Prowl and the Wreckers, and safety. Transformers: Sins of The Wreckers #4
is written and drawn by Nick Roche with colors by Josh Burcham. SPOILER WARNING:
this review is more in-depth than is typical for our comics reviews, so events beyond the official preview may be revealed! Continue to the review!
Ravage bails out the unlikely reinforcements that have arrived before the assembled Decepticon forces can overwhelm them, but their shuttle is shot down, forcing them to crash near the Necrobot's fortress. Elsewhere, Megatron negotiates his surrender to Tarn, in exchange for sparing everyone else on the planet, but this is not the endgame Tarn desires. The Dying of The Light, Part 3: Your Fierce Tears, written by James Roberts, art by Alex Milne, colors by Joana Lafuente. Continue reading the review!
Like most later wave figures Wreck-Gar might be a bit difficult to get. Which is good, since there's not much to this figure.
Wreck-Gar is a repaint with a new head from CW Legends Groove, so if you liked that figure you'll enjoy it again in orange, if not all I can tell you is the hips are tighter now.
Originally meant to be a part of Sky Reign any and all mention of it's 3rd mode has been removed from the packaging and instructions.
If you're looking for a modern Wreck-Gar, there are better options than this for you to explore.
Optimus Prime must address the Council and attempt to justify his actions, but Starscream will let the colony delegates see nothing except the beginning of a history of conquest by Primes starting to repeat itself - a point of view Optimus does little to refute. Meanwhile, Arcee and Galvatron take a moment to catch up and talk about the current political climate. All Hail Optimus, Part 3: The Medium And The Message, written by John Barber, illustrated by Livio Ramondelli Click here for the review.
The DJD's theatrics allow the stranded crew a brief reprieve inside the Necrobot's fortress - an opportunity that will not be wasted as everyone begins searching for some means to survive the coming storm among all of the advanced technology held within. But an unexpected discovery may reduce their options from few, to none. Read the review here!
As we reach the end of the box set, it's time to look at all these wonderful toys combined. Surely the whole will be even greater than the sum of its parts! Well, yes and no. And mostly no. But it's not to say that there isn't value to this package. It just maybe isn't the value advertised on the box. Click here
to go to the review with video, text and photos, and be sure to check out all the previous G2 Menasor set reviews in case you missed one!
Finally as we get to the end of the individual figures, it's time for Motormaster. And certainly nothing better personifies what this box set - and perhaps all of G2 as a concept - is about. Plus as an added bonus it's a largely very nice example of the Motormaster mold ...albeit with a minor issue here or there. Click here

Blackjack was a good name for the original colors of this figure, but the G2 is far too bright for that to fit descriptively. Instead we get a tiny package of bright, pretty color bundled on to a fantastic mold, giving us one of the stars of the set! Not bad for being the smallest, simplest figure in the package. Click here
for our coverage, with video, plus text and photos. And stay tuned for the last two reviews coming up as we finish off the set!
We finish out this week of reviews with Dead End, who rounds out the Deluxe portion of the G2 Menasor set as perhaps the best example of deco among the car molds in this set - if not the best executed deco on this mold period. Click here
for today's review video along with text and photos version. Then be back here on Monday as we pick up with the last two figures from the set before moving on to Menasor itself!
Next in line in our reviews of the Combiner Wars G2 Menasor set is Drag Strip, the quiet member of the team. While certainly far less garish than any of the other members of the team, Drag Strip stands out for having a really tasteful deco that's been wonderfully updated for the Generations version!

In day two of our coverage of the Combiner Wars G2 Menasor set, it's time to take a look at Brake-Neck. The renamed Wildrider in a yellow so brilliant that it baffles a camera's autofocus is a no less shining example of why this set is so excellent - plus here's another chance to grab the mold featuring this head sculpt if you couldn't buy last year's Brake-Neck!

Optimus Prime orders a West African town bombed ...with kindness. Around the world Optimus Prime's allies and supporters carry out missions designed to safeguard people's freedoms and provide humanitarian relief. But the humans aren't ready to trust the intentions of the individual who just annexed Earth, and the EDC plans a counterstrike. All the while, Optimus Prime suffers from more visions of approaching doom. "All Hail Optimus, Part 2: Edge of The Earth" Read the review!
Across the galaxy, a broadcast is heard. In it are the last words and instructions of a portion of the Lost Light crew, evidently awaiting a death to come within a short few hours. But even as Optimus Prime himself makes ready to mobilize and go to their aid, it''s revealed to be a hopeless pursuit: The signal was transmitted three weeks earlier, and all the ''bots have surely long since perished.

This is the end of Combiner Wars. Okay, that's not actually true. Thanks to boxsets with further recolors and retools, Combiner Wars will probably carry on as a sub line for at least the rest of 2016. But in terms of full new molds, we are at the end. Sky Lynx winds up being the final expression of this design style. Except for Blast Off, I guess. Okay, so maybe no part of this is even true. But look, we have an honest Generations Sky Lynx here.
