Coming to us from Kevin Liu, we've got our first look in video at the Deluxe Cogman figure from The Last Knight. This video covers transformation from car to robot, which has a couple of unexpected turns along the way that make the process look interesting to do. And of course we get good overviews of both modes as well as a quick showing of some alternate head choices on Cogman's "transtector". The video is in Chinese, but it's a great look at the toy. You can find it embedded in the full post below!
From chuckdawg1999 on our forums, we have a look at Wave 3's brand new Deluxe Bumblebee. While Chuck highlights the relative smallness of the robot mode (and bad use of packaging space in the Premier Edition boxes) what really seems to stand out is the involved transformation from car to robot as demonstrated in this video.

On Youtube, Pancrazi has posted two videos for Premier Edition Leader Class Dragonstorm from Transformers The Last Knight. The review itself is not in English, but is easily followed along with visually for the basics of the toy. The second video is a warning message in English describing a breakage problem focused on the dragon heads, as reportedly multiple units between Pancrazi and people he knows have had damage or outright breakage almost immediately out of the box. It looks like this could be another toy to be wary of from the start! Click through for both embedded videos.
Starscream comes to Windblade's rescue, but is not prepared for the enemy he must face. As Vigilem turns his attack to Starscream's mind, it's now up to Windblade to save them both and stop the echo of the corrupted Titan from escaping.

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!
Misfire is easily one of the most unique and cool looking vehicle modes G1 had to offer. Which also meant coming up with a way to represent that in a Classics collection was mighty difficult using existing toys. Generations finally got around to updating this character, but naturally TakaraTomy came and stole some thunder by showing their Targetmaster-included version before Hasbro's was released! But with the mold otherwise the same between, let's take a look at how Misfire came out. Click here to watch the review!
Once again we've got a new video from the RFC reviews channel, where diecast shows the Shadow Fisher upgrade kits for Masterpiece Ironhide and Ratchet to replace and reposition the door panels off of the hips for a cleaner look. Installation is demonstrated on Ironhide and at the end both figures are shown with the modifications completed as well as showing that Ironhide is still fully capable of transforming with the replacement parts installed. You can find the video embedded below!
On the RFC Reviews Youtube channel, diecast has posted a new video for the Leader Class Transformers The Last Knight Megatron. Probably the most exciting entry in the price point, which gained a lot of attention and anticipation since its reveal at Toy Fair this year. The figure looks great, but the instructions apparently are not, judging by the video. Check out that and more in the review which you'll find embedded below!
While in the US we were giving most of our attention to San Diego Comic Con over the course of last week, Japan was getting its unique edition of Leader Class Optimus Prime in TakaraTomy's The Last Knight series. We have a nice video from wotafa on Youtube that, while in Japanese, very clearly demonstrates the toy, including the shield that is the focal point of its changes from the prior releases. One point proved in this review is that the shield can remain unpartsformed as a backpack if so desired, and in doing is a bit more tidy than the original version of the toy still. For this and more, check out the video below!
The Titan Master figures vary between really cool, and meh. Here we have two figures that are kinda cool; Shuffler is a total package with three solid modes, while Repugnus' weapon mode is kinda iffy. All in all these two are solid additions to the Titan Masters. Read on for the full review.
Meet Stardrive! Found by Rom and raised by the Solstar Order, she's not your average Spaceknight. But, by virture of being a Spaceknight, she's not your average Cybertronian either... Rom Vs. Transformers: Shining Armor #1

On Youtube, chefatron has a video up for the two pack of Cloudraker and Wingspan. The set which will be coming to the US as a Walgreens exclusives contains the other half of the clone pairs that were started in the Chaos on Velocitron and Siege on Cybertron sets. In the video we get a good overview of the two figures, along with quick comparisons with other Legends figures for general sense of the size of the robot and alt modes. You can find the video embedded below!
Something a lot of us have been anticipating since the Saturday of Botcon 2016, our long-awaited - and long-requested - updated version of Overlord from Masterforce! Or maybe IDW. I suppose he was mildly important there, too... I was able to get my hands on one of these a little bit ahead of the US distribution, and so we've got a detailed video review for you to check out today going over the figure, its vehicle modes, and what it shares with Sky Shadow.

Thanks to diecast on the RFC Reviews channel, we've got a quick look video review for the Valvotron figure being offered by Valvoline as part of the promotional run for Transformers The Last Knight
. Valvotron was available by submitting a receipt for an oil change or the purchase of a quantity of Valvoline motor oil from participating retailers, and the figures are now being fulfilled. You can check out the embedded video below to get a look at the figure up close!
