With new threats looming in the wake of recent events, Starscream turns his focus back to creating a powerful defensive base to protect himself, and maybe Cybertron as well. And all it will take is changing the mind of one enemy - with a bit of specialist help. "The Price of You" written by Mairghread Scott, art by Sara Pitre-Durocher, colors by Joana Lafuente.

With the second wave of Premier edition toys hitting retail, the reviews for the Transformers The Last Knight Autobot Drift figure are starting to hit youtube. With this being one of the remodled toys in the class, we figured a post rounding up the many videos up for this guy would help others decide if they want to get this one, or not.
Chuckdawg1999 is back at it again. Following off of Ultra Bee yesterday, he's back to show off the second of the team combiner sets in RID Combiner Force: Menasor. As Chuck puts it, Menasor is slightly more traditional with five team members, though there's only three distinct molds within the set. You can get a basic rundown of each toy and the combined form in the video - embedded below, of course - and see whether this set looks like something to bring in to your collection.

Today, our forums member chuckdawg1999 stopped in to share another new video with us, giving us one of our first in-hand looks at a team combiner set from RID Combiner Force - Ultra Bee! After some people lost enthusiasm toward the Crash Combiners upon seeing them, it'll be important to get a good look at find out how these team sets came out in execution. With two more after this, and these more or less being the "headliners" of this sub-branding, a lot might be riding on these guys! Click through to see the review.
On pre-war Cybertron and present-day Earth, the battle is over. But for how long? And who will be the first one to take up arms? "The Next Day/And The Next"

Brawn was surprising, both because Titan Master Brawn had already happened, and because Legends-class Brawn ended up being SO GOOD. Oh sure, it''s not perfect, but its problems are only minor, and most can be fixed with a paint brush (or Gundam Marker if that''s more your speed). Now we just need his destined recolor/retool to be made... Click here to watch the review!
Titans Return Legends wave 4 featured the expected recolor of wave 3's Bumblebee in Roadburn - a renamed Throttlebot Chase. ...along with a reship of Bumblebee. Good job, guys. It was my first exposure to the mold, as I had chosen to skip Bumblebee and wait for the next character. Overall, I'm happy I didn't buy it as another 'Bee, but the design still isn't firing on all cylinders. Watch the review right here!
Berserker and Megatron are the new molds from wave 2 of The Last Knight One Step subline. Megatron is fantastic, if you buy one, one step figure make it Megatron. Berserker is fun, but most of the robot sticks out underneath the truck. While both make fine desk toys, Megatron is by far the stronger of the two.
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!
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!
Premier Edition Bumblebee is hampered significantly by the fact that you could get the mold five bucks cheaper three years ago. It's not a particularly bad or outstanding example of figures from the later movie lines, but it seems to have lost some robot mode paint since the Age of Extinction. Value is a personal, subjective thing in the collecting world, but it sure doesn't feel like twenty bucks of toy to me. Click here to go to 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!

This is a really cool figure and makes me excited for the other versions of Megatron yet to come. Transformation is simple but enjoyable and the end result is a really sweet looking jet. Highly recommended as I feel this is the best Knight Armor figure thus far.
All hail the useless one!

On the Youtube channel of "TfMaster", we've been treated to a video giving us our first detailed, in hand look at Voyager Hound from The Last Knight Premier Edition wave 2. The video has no dialogue, but does include some text overlays to point out select things, and largely tries to just give a good look at the toy, including a walkthrough of the transformation. It also highlights some details that might not have been widely known before, such as the figure having a removable helmet. Since we haven't had any real photo coverage so far, we've also snapped some stills for closer study. Find those and the video below!
