I was lucky enough to be able to attend Botcon this year in Dallas. I didn't attend as a preregistrant, and a majority of the regular exclusive toy set's offerings didn't really catch my interest. However, the add-on souvenir sets began to call to me almost the moment I saw them in the display case when I arrived Thursday afternoon. Alas, Fun Publications knows their craft and paired really excellent toys with slightly less thrilling ones, and so I had to buy two sets to get the two figures I most wanted...

If I buy the same mold twice, I very rarely buy the same character from the same mold. And I initially wasn't planning

Other times, they fall off the mark. This review looks at Transformers Reveal the Shield Strafe, which borrows a mold from the previous movie line. Can a Bayverse figure really make a good G1 tribute? Jump to the review

It always seems that Hasbro discontinues a line right when the selection gets good. Take Transformers Reveal The Shield Lugnut, for example. He was to be part of the first and only Voyager class wave to hit the Reveal the Shield subline. Unfortunately for him, that release came a bit too close to Dark of the Moon. You can go on the hunt through various clearance chains such as TJ Maxx or Marshalls to find him, but is he worth the exercise? Read the review here

Everyone's favorite TV talking, axe wielding, ear-to-ear grinning Junkion is back in the saddle... literally. Wreck Gar has returned to his G1 roots thanks to the current Reveal The Shield line. See how he stacks up in this review.
What better way to start a review wave of Reveal the Shield wave 2 figures than with the top dog himself, Optimus Prime? This Deluxe class version has often been compared to the G1 Laser Prime, and it certainly looks the part. Will Prime follow the latest trend of Deluxe offerings, which have offered some surprisingly good molds? Check this review for the answer!
Originally, Japan featured a Transformers 2010 3-pack featuring Cyclonus, Rodimus and Galvatron. Seems Hasbro knew what a mess Galvatron was, because they left him out and have blessed us with the simple "Battle In Space" 2-pack, featuring Classics Rodimus and Universe 2.0 Cyclonus. So what's the differences with this re-release? Jump to this review

Since 2007, fans have been dying to see Jazz return to his G1 roots. With Reveal The Shield, that hope has come. Jazz not only gets his old paint job back, but gets a look that captures his original essence. But is regression a good thing? Find the answer in this review.
Rolling along on the Reveal The Shield reviews, we come up to Fallback. In a previous life, he was known as Outback. However, that name is being used elsewhere. This might be a movie inspired figure, but can it work in a retro application? Check out this review

This time, you won't even get through the first wave without getting repaints shelled at you. Borrowing from the HFTD lineup, Reveal The Shield offers up a new character by the name of Mindset. Check him out in this review
December has come early, as Reveal The Shield is now leaking out into stores! Starting our 4 figure review block of this new line is Turbo Tracks. His Alternators figure didn't do Tracks full justice, as there was no flight mode. Will this new Deluxe mold fill the bill with it's flight mode? Read this review
