Fresh from our forums, chuckdawg1999 has brought us a two-in-one video covering the first two Dinobots in Power of The Primes. Deluxes Swoop and Slug (Slag) have beaten Grimlock out to retail by a little bit in the US, so we get to see how one of the first Classics
-family updates for the rest of the Dinobot team turn out before we find out about the latest take on the oft-revisited. You can find the review video embedded below!
The Centurion chase continues as the Revolutionaries work with Arcee to rescue two of their own! But who needs rescued... and who has other plans? Transformers: First Strike #1

Aileron's team of colonist soldiers finds Jazz in Mexico - but it's not a happy reunion. Out at Sanctuary Station, Thundercracker's busywork points to a minor mystery that may swing back around to some larger events. All this, and trying not to start a war between Earth and Cybertron!

Issue 10 of Lost Light
which hit shops earlier this past month kicks off the "Mutineers Trilogy", finally taking us back to the ship for the first time since Rodimus and company got the boot over a year ago. Over the course of that time, I have not had good feelings about the series, regardless of which name it happened to be going by at the time. That wasn't a new situation; the 40s of More Than Meets The Eye
really struck me the wrong way and started the process of falling out. But despite dropping Lost Light
from my monthly read, I wanted to come back and see how this anticipated storyline would play out.
Just in tonight from the RFC Reviews channel, we've got a video review by diecast for the Generation Toy Tyrant, a figure based on IDW Megatron in his stealth bomber phase. Having appeared previously in toy form as a small Deluxe in the official Generations lineup in 2013, this larger format might find more appeal for its general scale, coming in just a bit taller than MP-10 Optimus. We've got the video embedded below, click through to have a look!
It's almost time for the big ceremony admitting Earth to the Cybertronian Council of Worlds! ...wait, I feel like we've been here before. Have we been here before? Well, yes - but not from the Revolutionaries' point of view!

Stardrive has had it - with Autobots, with Decepticons, with Dire Wraiths, and even with her fellow Solstar Knights. So then, what is she going to do about it? Rom Vs. Transformers: Shining Armor

Things are going a bit wrong. The delegation from Earth has traveled to Cybertron, as has a group of the Earth-based Transformers in order to work out entry to the Council of Worlds. But an untimely explosion, cut off communications, and tensions are rising quickly. With Optimus Prime and Arcee off world and out of reach, Aileron has to take command. She is so going to hate this day. "Primeless, Part 1", written by John Barber, art split among Sara Pitre-Durocher, Fico Ossio, Paolo Villanelli, and Kei Zama, with colors for all by Josh Burcham.

Joe Colton has to be stopped and Scarlett and her team are the only ones with the knowledge that Optimus Prime needs. So it's time to bust them out of prison! But it's not going to be that simple - on any level. First Strike

Holy crap! Transformers has too many names on their packaging. But this is Walmart Exclusive Transformers: The Last Knight Autobots Unite Deluxe Class Autobot Hot Rod.
The younger generation needs Transformers as well. If you want your children to have Transformers that are slightly more involved than Rescue Bots, then this is the way to go.
From diecast on RFC Reviews we have what we're pretty sure is the first video review for Meteor - original recipe style, that is, G1 cartoon inspired rather than Galaxy
Meteor. Meteor goes for as much of a cartoon-inspired look for Starscream as is practical on a figure that can still transform, and that efforts looks quite successful with mainly smooth surfaces, bright colors, and slightly rounded edges that clearly set it apart from where the official MP Starscream was aimed. The video review is a little over half an hour. Check it out embedded below for your first in hand look at this brand new release!
Scarlett, the Joes, MASK, and their Cybertronian allies know exactly where Joe Colton is going and have a good idea of what he's trying to do. Unfortunately it's not their planet, and they don't get to decide how the pursuit will be handled - or who will handle it. First Strike

Finding themselves on an alien world, four intergalactic factions work towards different goals. But how to achieve those goals isn't something anybody agrees on - and the differences don't fall squarely along party lines. Rom Vs. Transformers: Shining Armor
