Following the lead of the Deluxes, Power of The Primes Legends Class figures have begun appearing at Targets in the US, and I was lucky enough to be near a location with stock on hand! So this evening we've got a video review for the brand new Windcharger ready for you to have a look at. It's a pretty good toy whose worst problem seems to be a bad deco choice on the head - any other issues don't stand out nearly as much. Click here to go to the review!

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.
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!

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

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

Of the three Transformers SDCC related exclusives, this is the one that missed. A $50 version of a already-overpriced $30 toy with fancy but easily-damaged packaging, and a chance for, but no guarantee of, an interesting Transformers: The Last Knight
keepsake. Put it this way: to differentiate it from "Primitive Prime"
in preparing materials for these reviews, RAC dubbed this one "Pointless Prime." Click here to read and watch the review, and see the gallery!
As Optimus, Pyra Magna and Starscream wait to receive a very important phone call, Alpha Trion relates a story of the origins of the first Cybertronian unification, brought about by The Primes long before known history began.

Primitive Prime would've been cool even without the benefit of being only $5 more than a Leader class figure usually is. But he's also that - if you got it in the very
brief window it was available. But he's a fun recolor, has a great new set of accessories, and his head turns into a tiny robot named Shreddicus Maximus.
