The TFCC has posted another mockup image of their upcoming Marissa Faireborn and Afterburner set. Introduced in G1 cartoon season 3, Marissa Faireborn was subtly hinted to be the child of GI Joes Flint (Dashiell Faireborn) and Lady Jaye. The figure is made from the GI Joe Resolute
Scarlett mold and includes a flamethrower; her Autobot bike partner Afterburner does not seem to transform. Keep reading to see the photo!
IJK Productions has posted a review of Masterpiece Prowl to YouTube. Decent-looking figure, but kind of funny to watch MP Soundwave tower over him to that degree. Keep reading to see the review!

Robot Kingdom has posted more images to their Facebook page, among which are better images of the die for G1 Optimus Prime that give a better idea of what exactly is on this sprue. The blue and vac-metal parts are gang-molded - no surprise to anyone who's ever scraped the chrome on their figure - and it seems as though there may be removable stops to allow the shortening of smokestacks for US rereleases. Keep reading to see the details!
The dub for Robots in Disguise in 2001 grabbed a lot of people's attention while it aired, but little has had ongoing staying power with most fans. Sky-Byte is one such element, thanks in no small part to the voice performance of Peter Spellos. Having previously been updated in a Botcon box set, as well as getting a new life in IDW's comic continuity, the character's popularity is well acknowledged. It's not too surprising for Sky-Byte to get a retail update in the 30th anniversary Generations line, but was Voyager really the right size class to put it in...? Keep reading!
