Benscollectibles on Youtube have posted a few new video reviews for the Transformers Generations Combiner Wars figures. Get an in-hand review of the Optimus Prime, Silverbolt, and Firefly figures that we first saw last summer at BotCon and SDCC. Read on to watch all three of the video reviews below for more information on these Transformers toys.

The Transformers Facebook page has uploaded a Designer Desk image, featuring the newest Aerialbot, Alpha Bravo. The Slingshot substitute is shown at each of the major design steps, from sketch, to model, to production-plastic sample and deco sheet. But the real bonus from this glimpse behind the scenes are the head sketch and helicopter art. The latter could very well be what to expect of a Blades reuse of this mold, and while the head is quite generic, might that be the pre-tool alternate? Only Toy Fair can tell us, but in the meantime keep reading to check out the full image!
