Forums member chuckdawg1999 has brought us a two in one review. Throwing all sense to the wind he imported Titans Return Wheelie and Rewind from the brief early Australian release and has prepared a video about the two figures for us. Have a look at the transformation, some of the design details and more. You can check all that out in the video, embedded below!
Our friend from the forums TMan978 has stopped by once again to share a new review with us! This time it's a video looking at DX9's Doombringers, the three pack of Legends-scale Galvatron, Cyclonus and Scourge. Taking a detailed look at all three small figures, including quick size comparisons with a range of other similarly sized toys, you can see the details of each figure and their modified decos versus the individual releases. The video is embedded in the full post below, so click through and start watching!
The Youtube channel for Kal El Reviews has followed up from the original posting of the review for Titan Class Fortress Maximus with two more videos with a little more focused coverage. First is a comparison video running through the similarities and changes between 2013's Titan Class Metroplex and the new Fort Max. After that is a video running through the step by step transformation from robot mode, to ship, to battle station, and back to robot again. We've embedded both videos below for your convenience, so keep reading and check it out!
Optimus Prime reaches out to form an alliance with Soundwave, to the discomfort of the majority of both their respective groups. But to confront their common enemy, Galvatron, bold choices are called for. However, as the assault against the Decepticon ship is mounted, no one is prepared for the weapon Galvatron has waiting.

Death approaches, as certain as the setting sun. In these final moments before a hopeless battle begins, unexpected discoveries answer questions long held, and important choices are made that will change lives from here going forward - for as long as it lasts. The Dying of The Light Part 4: At Close of Day, written by James Roberts, art by Alex Milne and Hayato Sakamoto (pages 14-18 only), colors by Joana Lafuente. Click here to read the review!
After giving us in hand photography earlier today, Kal El has posted the first review of Titans Return Fortress Maximus on his Youtube channel.
While it doesn't cover the transformation processes, the 25 minute video does give a general look at all three modes, the articulation, a before and after with the sticker sheet, a demonstration of the electronics, and a quick run through of the Cerebros and Emissary components. It's a lot of information, and more may still be coming!
The video is embedded below, so click through and take a look!
If you were a fan of Gobots back in the 80's then you will want to check out this new review of the Machine Robo: Revenge Of Cronos Eagle Robo/Leader-1 figure from Action Toys.
Along with Wheelie, Goktimus Prime has uploaded a video showing Titans Return Rewind. The Legends figure draws lots of inspiration from the IDW comics as shown in the robot mode. The video also shows the data tablet and tank modes, as well as giving a look at the screen sticker with cassette "wallpaper" based on the deco of the original G1 Rewind toy. You can click through to take a look at the video, embedded below!
A small amount of Titans Return merchandise has hit retail in Australia, and we haven't had long to wait for fans to start showing them off. From Goktimus Prime we have a Youtube video featuring Legends Class Wheelie.
The video shows off the clever transformation engineering, a quick rundown of the robot mode's build, and a short segment on what will or won't fit in the vehicle mode's occupant compartment. The video review is embedded below, so check it out!
The final member of the team is here, the smallest, and with no new parts. But yet, somehow it seems that Rust Dust is the best of the bunch! Funny how things work out, isn't it? You can find out everything that sets Rust Dust apart by watching our video review and checking out the text and photos coverage as well! Click here

In this second set, of what could be called Wave 1 of the Minicon Weaponizers, we have our first repaint in Sidewipe, and a new sword Minicon named Windstrike.
I was surprised that there wasn't new tooling on Sideswipe, as the new armor bits use the existing ports and slots. Care and a great deal of patience must be used in attaching the armor to Windstrike, as the attachment ports are spotty as best, and attaching the swords to the back of Sideswipe; there's only one way for them to go.
Hasbro gives G1 fans the final piece needed to complete their Combiner Wars Defensor with this new Deluxe series Protectobot Groove figure.
The TFCC FSS 4.0 is rolling on, with Grabuge, otherwise known as Ruckus!
This figure is a fantastic repaint of Offroad, and the tightest version of the mold I've handled.
If you're buying this on the secondary market it's a solid figure on its own.
RAC reviews Kids Logic Devastator, a really attractive high-end figure with lights, sounds, and a lot of articulation! But also a few issues with fragility - some likely isolated to this copy of the figure and some more likely to be systemic. Click here to go to the review
and see for yourself!
The second of the two cars in the Combiner Wars Victorion set, Jumpstream is a general improvement over Dust Up in several ways, though depending on your tastes, one or two things may not seem quite as positive in the end when you put the two car characters side by side. Plus with the Breakdown mold not entirely being a fan favorite, can this remold help attract some new fans? Click here
