More Generation 1 News
z75sales, the eBay seller responsible for the recent G2 Menasor auction that shocked us all with a final price of $26,800, has posted a video detailing the source of the collection and its size and scope. Unsurprisingly, they're liquidating the collection of a former Hasbro/Kenner engineer. These first two videos explain how the authenticity of each piece is guaranteed, and give a look at the original prototype of Beast Wars Optimal Optimus! More videos are promised but for now, check out these two!
Retro Robot Radio and TFormers.com present one of the most bizarre paradoxes in the history of Transformers Audiobooks - Galvatron's Air Attack! This story was written in the short gap between the release of the 1986 toys, but before the release of the Transformers 1986 movie. The writers wanted to add in all the characters introduced in the film, but didn't know the plot of the film yet.. so they just read the tech specs for the characters and made something up.

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!
Butting in on his movie counterpart's corpse-wearin' ways, Hot Toys Optimus Prime Starscream Version is a slick, nontransforming figure of G1 Prime by the company responsible for all the pretty Iron Man figures most of us will never own.
