Today RAC takes a look at the first of the three primary forms that toy articulation can take: the hinge. Probably the most-used joint on Transformers figures due to their utility in transformation mechanisms, hinges still do a lot of heavy lifting for the humanoid form as well - especially if you do it properly and lift from the knees.

Though we had heard of Canadian sightings starting a little over a month ago, we've finally got word of Titans Return Voyager wave 4 making its way to stores in the US. Broadside is the only new figure in the case, and one was found in a San Antonio Walmart by *Deathblade

Distribution could take time though, as there are still lots of Astrotrains and Optimus Primes out there taking up the space. Best of luck to all toy hunters!
