Thanks to Paramount Pictures, RAC has received a Blu-Ray Combo Pack copy of Transformers: The Last Knight
for review, in advance of its September 26th release date! Join him as he goes over the specifics of the set and its Special Features... with an extended aside about the film itself. Keep reading for the full review!
Of the three Transformers SDCC related exclusives, this is the one that missed. A $50 version of a already-overpriced $30 toy with fancy but easily-damaged packaging, and a chance for, but no guarantee of, an interesting Transformers: The Last Knight
keepsake. Put it this way: to differentiate it from "Primitive Prime"
in preparing materials for these reviews, RAC dubbed this one "Pointless Prime." Click here to read and watch the review, and see the gallery!
Thanks to Hasbro for passing this along to us. Nitro is from Voyager wave 3, and is also notable for exhibiting some actual character in the movie! It's also notable for poor quality instructions that can make the first transformation far from fun. But once past that, you have a pretty nice toy! Click here to watch the review!
I really wanted to like this movie. With the intense promotion for this movie. I was expecting an epic story with the many gaps to be filled in from the previews. Unfortunately, there was little new to see. It was as if all the trailers had been stitched together and run end to end. I know this sounds hard to believe, but we've seen a lot of it already in the previews. That said, what is there to like? It is watchable, unlike "Age of Extinction," which I cannot sit through no matter how many times I try. Read the Full Review Here
As one of only three new molds across all the price points for Premier Edition Wave 1, Berserker was under a lot of early pressure to be an ambassador for his toyline, particularly proving that the new toys lived up to the increased MSRP put to them. Whether that attempt was successful, well, that's for the video to tell... Click here to watch the review!
Having already touched on Turbo Changers, Tiny and Knight-Armored, it time to turn trilogy with the Turbo Changer Optimus Prime from The Last Knight. This Turbo Changer is what otherwise is called a One Step Changer. And in a lot of ways ends up being better for that comparative simplicity. Thanks once again to Hasbro for sending this our way!

The "Armor Up" or "Knight Armor" Turbo Changer Bumblebee was another of the items Hasbro sent our way with our sampler box of items from The Last Knight's toyline launch. This is the larger Turbo Changer pricepoint for the movie line, all of which will feature flip-out masks, representing an "armored up" state. This could be a fun thing if you like having something easy to casually mess with, except that some of the engineering feels like it gets in the way of that "easy play" concept.

Continuing to draw from the box of Transformers The Last Knight goodies Hasbro sent our way, we've got a video looking at two more Tiny Turbo Changers. This time it's both Lockdown and Crosshairs, letting us thoroughly examine the variations on super-deformed-car-to-robot. We've also learned a little more about identifying which figure is in which bag. I talk about that some in the video, and we'll have a more detailed guide coming up shortly.
