The Titan Master figures vary between really cool, and meh. Here we have two figures that are kinda cool; Shuffler is a total package with three solid modes, while Repugnus' weapon mode is kinda iffy. All in all these two are solid additions to the Titan Masters. Read on for the full review.
On Youtube, chefatron has a video up for the two pack of Cloudraker and Wingspan. The set which will be coming to the US as a Walgreens exclusives contains the other half of the clone pairs that were started in the Chaos on Velocitron and Siege on Cybertron sets. In the video we get a good overview of the two figures, along with quick comparisons with other Legends figures for general sense of the size of the robot and alt modes. You can find the video embedded below!
With some lingering doubts about where or when the Transformers Titans Return Trypticon would land here in the States. It only seems appropriate to torture everyone with a bevy of video reviews so you'll know what you are missing in the latest Titan class figure release. The super-duper G1 redux, complete with a 160+ stickers to apply is really beefy. Read on to watch five different reviews of this super-sized Transformers after the jump.
Thanks to lichlute on Youtube, we've got a video review to share for the just-revealed exclusive two pack of Wingspan and Cloudraker. In the US the second pair of Clones will be a Walgreens exclusive, but in at least some parts of Asia the set seems to be generally available. This video of course focuses on the flight-type pair, but also gives plenty of shots with Fastlane and Pounce throughout. From the alt mode grouping toward the end, it becomes quickly evident Fastlane got the short end of the stick in the design of these toys. Check out the video embedded below!
We've got two videos to share tonight for Titans return Misfire, the first retool of the popular Triggerhappy mold originally seen with wave 3. First from xcorpeo is a quick review which gives a good look at how the retooling has changed the transformation versus Triggerhappy, plus giving a basic rundown of the figure. The second video is more of a photo slideshow, but it manages to get in and show off a lot more of the small details of the toy. You can find them both embedded below!
On the Youtube channel of lichlute, we have another video - again in Chinese - showing Titans Return Windblade. This is the third figure in the parts-reuse family previously comprised of Scourge and Highbrow, again sharing several core parts, but otherwise wrapping an all new figure around them. This gives us our first good look at the back half of Windblade's vehicle mode, which had generally not been photographed in any detail before. Now we can see that may have been on purpose. To see for yourself, click through to watch the video!
The Youtube channel Non Majors has posted a video for Titans Return Overlord - in Chinese - giving us a first look at the highly anticipated figure in action. In the video we get to see Overlord in robot mode, along with the transformation to its vehicle modes and configuring the base mode. Overlord is of course a retool of Sky Shadow from Wave 4, with the upper body/jet component being largely or entirely new sculpting, though of course it still works much the same way. You can find the video embedded below!
For a convention, Takara got the great idea to release the heads that appeared on the Hasbro versions fo Chromedome, Hardhead, and Brainstorm. These heads were paint matched to the respective Legends deco and look fantastic. Also included were repaints of the Brawn, Skytread, and Grimlock (Clobber). The set is fairly cheap and worth it if you collect the Legends figures and would like the Hasbro heads as well.
The lone new mold in Titans Return Wave 5 at the Legends price point, Seaspray is a long-awaited Classic style updating of the G1 character, which is sure to drive collector demand. Much more cartoon and original toy -oriented than the Voyager several years ago, but as a toy on its own merits, will it sink, or swim? Click here to watch the review!
On Youtube, Chefatron has shared videos for the just-released (in Asia) Titans Return Octone (Octane) and Blitzwing. The videos go in to some good depth about what's different on these figures versus the Optimus and Megatron uses of the base molds so you can get a solid idea of what these new releases have to offer, plus a look at each figure on their own. And if you want a nice bit of shock, watch for the Titans Return Blitzwing and 2013 Generations Blitzwing. Cripes.
Both videos are embedded below, so come take a look.
Prowl is the second of two new Cyber Series figures coming out in some international markets. Thanks again to chuckdawg1999 on our forums we have a review to share with you for this figure. Though like Jetfire it has some of the characteristic design choices of its line, like absent mid-limb swivel joints and such, all in all this looks like a pretty solid Prowl figure to join the lineup of these larger scale, simple toys. Check out the review video below.
Our forums member chuckdawg1999 has gone after the newest offerings from the Generations Cyber Series, the line of large figures based on engineering designs of Legends and Cyberverse Class figures, designed for select international markets outside North America. In this video we get to see Jetfire, a moderate retool of the previously released Starscream figure. You can get a look at the differences between the figures, and how those impact transformation, all in the embedded video below!
We've got another quick review from the RFC Reviews channel as diecast takes a look at the one fully new mold from the Chaos on Velocitron box set, Fastclash. The trademark-renamed Fastlane had been stated at the Toy Fair Q&A event to be a unique size class between Legends and Deluxe, but as diecast demonstrates in this review, the figure seems very decidedly just a Legends Class. You can find out all about that and more in the video below!
There's a lot of versions of this mold in the pipeline, with a proper Laser Optimus Prime and Triple Changer Oct
ne being the two most notable. But, is it worth having this specific version? Well... Click here to read and watch the review!
From chuckdawg1999: "Better late than never! Soundwave has been a bit hard to find in the US, but I was able to finally get the figure. Like most repaints/retools there are some things better on Soundwave and some things that are worse. Overall what I liked about Blaster, I like about Soundwave and I'm happy to have what I feel is a proper update to the G1 toy."
