From Soundwaveman on Youtube, we have a pair of new videos tonight. While wave 1 is just barely officially out around the world, The Last Knight wave 2 has unexpectedly become available in part, in the UK. Sqweeks and Drift seem to be the only representatives of the second wave that have turned up so far, however. Drift is a heavy retooling of the Age of Extinction toy, while Sqweeks is of course entirely new. The videos go in to a fair bit of detail on the toys and stand as an excellent first real look at these two releases. You can find both embedded below!
Chefatron from Youtube has one more video review to share this weekend, featuring the Activators Class Soundwave from RID Combiner Force. The Activators are the Mini-Con-interactive action feature style figures. Soundwave is paired with Laserbeak, and using Laserbeak in vehicle mode deploys (non-firing) missile launchers. Apart from that, you can see the admittedly limited articulation and the transformation, though most of that was revealed a while ago in a video featuring Soundwave's prototype
, but it's good to see how the final version worked out. Click through to watch!
On Youtube this weekend, Chefatron has posted a couple of videos for new Robots in Disguise toys that have started to hit in Asia. First up is a pair of videos for two new Legion figures reflecting some of the updated Decepticon cast in the new season of the show, Cyclonus and Heatseeker. The videos will show off the basics of the two figures, including transformation - and sometimes the best part of these tiny figures are the clever ways they have for getting from one form to another! Both videos can be found in the full post below.
More figures released under the Turbo Changers header, the Knight Armor figures feature spring loaded helmets and very simple transformations. Grimlock is an ok figure with the most interesting helm, while Bumblebee suffers from weak knees. Optimus Prime is the best overall figure with an almost Samurai motif to his helmet.
Just in tonight from the RFC Reviews Youtube channel, diecast has a video featuring Berserker from The Last Knight wave 1 Premier Edition Deluxe assortment. Giving a good look over the figure, as well as the packaging which is compared directly to the likes of Star Wars Black Series, we get to see if this figure holds up to the higher suggested pricepoint. We've got the video embedded in the full article, so click through to watch now!
Rum-Maj's plans are disrupted by the Sharkticons' sudden change of heart. As the battle comes to its conclusion and the lives of Junkions, Cybertronians, and Earthlings hang in the balance, Optimus Prime reflects internally on how he got here, and whether he's changed as much as he might like.

Our forums member chuckdawg1999 has shared another video with us. This is a look at the first two waves of the Crash Combiners play pattern in Robots in Disguise Combiner Force. The first wave of two packs, Optimus and Strongarm, and Bumblebee and Sideswipe have been available for a while, but wave 2 pack of Skysledge and Stormhammer are just now beginning to hit in the US, and this video gives a chance to get a look at these new figures - including seeing the components get swapped around and mix and matched! Check it out embedded below.
From our forums, TMan978 has shared a video of an interesting new figure. Wei Jiang, known fairly well for making upscaled, surprisingly high quality knockoffs of both official products and the occasional third party item has recently made an upsized iteration of Generations Arcee, theoretically scaled to Masterpiece figures. There's a few other things altered with the figure too, though probably more on the minor side. Check out the embedded video below to have a look at this offering.
New on the forums today, our friend chuckdawg1999 has shared a video with us for Deluxe Barricade from the first wave of Premier Edition The Last Knight figures. Highlighting the more "traditional" body design and nice loadout of accessories, this figure seems to be the high point among this initial Deluxe offering, over Berserker and the two redecos. You can find the video embedded below in the full article!
On our forums today, chuckdawg1999 has shared his video covering Barricade and Hound from The Last Knight's Turbo Changer assortment - known more commonly as the One Step Changers. These two are the only new molds from this first assortment, reflecting the characters' updated robot and vehicle looks for the new movie. You can get a good look at both figures as well as see their conversion action from vehicle to robot and back in the video which we have embedded below. Click through and have a look!
The folks over at TTPM Toy Reviews have posteda quick video review of the Knight Armor Turbo Changer Optimus Transformers: The Last Knight figure. Get a look at the Turbo Changer class figure that will be out in stores soon.
Tonight via diecast on the RFC Reviews Youtube channel, we've got a look at Toyworld's unofficial Cosmos figure, Space Racer. Scaled to fit in with Masterpieces using MP Bumblebee as a guide (meaning it's in the neighborhood of a regular Deluxe), Space Racer seems on the less complicated side of third party, but ultimately the review of the figure does not seem super positive towards some of the design decisions made. The review is embedded below, click through to take a look and learn more!
Straight from our forums, chuckdawg1999 is bringing a new video for Deluxe Berserker from The Last Knight. Having been briefly available online against the street date, we get a little bit early look at one of the two new mold Deluxes for the first wave. And maybe not a great one, as the transformation process seems to take several minutes in the review, owing at least partly to its panel-heavy nature. You can find out more about it for yourself by watching the video below.
Prowl is the second of two new Cyber Series figures coming out in some international markets. Thanks again to chuckdawg1999 on our forums we have a review to share with you for this figure. Though like Jetfire it has some of the characteristic design choices of its line, like absent mid-limb swivel joints and such, all in all this looks like a pretty solid Prowl figure to join the lineup of these larger scale, simple toys. Check out the review video below.
Our forums member chuckdawg1999 has gone after the newest offerings from the Generations Cyber Series, the line of large figures based on engineering designs of Legends and Cyberverse Class figures, designed for select international markets outside North America. In this video we get to see Jetfire, a moderate retool of the previously released Starscream figure. You can get a look at the differences between the figures, and how those impact transformation, all in the embedded video below!
