Following the first image gallery, we now have the full video review by way of Kuma Style reviews on YouTube. This is a pretty stunning figure that commands a healthy price for all its detailing, posability and accessories. Read on to see the video, new high-res images and the full details from Kuma Style reviews.
Fresh off the forums, chuckdawg1999 has brought us a video review for the just-released legends series Slugslinger from TakaraTomy. LG55 features the Targetmaster Caliburst and sports a modified deco from the earlier Hasbro release. Chuck shows off both the Titans Return and Legends versions side by side to highlight the points of difference between them, though outside the choice of dedicated weapon versus Targetmaster, the only real changes come down to colors. You can watch the review right now, embedded just below in the full post.
Sunstreaker is the latest release in the Masterpiece Autobot car lineup, fresh out from TakaraTomy as of the end of December. We've got a couple of reviews to bring you of this anticipated counterpart to Sideswipe tonight. First up, Anthony from TFU.info
has made his video review debut looking at Sunstreaker, giving an essential overview in less than 7 minutes. Joining that in our mini-roundup is a longer format review from TMan978 on our forums who passed his video along to us today. You can find both embedded in the full post below, starting with the TFU.info review. Click through and check it out!
With the USA sightings rolling out on the Transformers Power of the Primes Voyager Star scream figures - Check the Wave Tracker to find yours
. It only seems fitting to have a look at what fans are liking about the latest and maybe greatest Generation 1 style edition of this classic character. Not to forget, there will very likely be more of this mold coming our way in the seeker characters.
Thanks to Kevin Liu we now have a very good look at Leader class Rodimus Prime, capping off the first wave of Power of The Primes. Kevin's video is of course in Chinese, but presented clearly enough to tell what's going on anyway. Most interestingly, we get side by sides with Titans Return Hot Rod, which shows the Hot Rod form of this toy to actually be a fair bit bigger. As Titans Return Hot Rod was already a bit big for a Deluxe, you can imagine the new one is surely pushing the boundaries of being comparable with Deluxes! The video as well as plenty of screencaps can all be found below - keep reading to see it all!
Once again via Kevin Liu's Youtube Channel, we have a new look at a Power of The Primes toy we're still waiting on in the US. Voyager class Starscream is on show in the latest video, giving us details about the figure that we haven't been able to see before. And some we have, like the verging on diastrous overuse of stickers on the jet body, and the incredibly simplistic transformation. We have our best yet look at the combiner mode, as well as the transformation process leading to it. We have the video embedded below, and we've taken full resolution screencaps to better show some of the toy's details. Click through to see it all!
Kevin Liu on Youtube has gotten hold of Leader Class Optimus Prime from Power of The Primes, and posted a video going over all the features of the toy. It's in Chinese, but it's easy to get the basics from the clear visuals. In addition since this is our best in-hand look at the toy so far, we've also taken a series of still from the 1080p video to give you a chance to get a good look at various aspects of the toy. We're not quite sure when the Leader Class will hit retail in the US, but we'd almost bet on signs of it before the holidays have come and gone. Click through to check out the screencap gallery and see the video embedded below.
Fresh from our forums, chuckdawg1999 has brought us a two-in-one video covering the first two Dinobots in Power of The Primes. Deluxes Swoop and Slug (Slag) have beaten Grimlock out to retail by a little bit in the US, so we get to see how one of the first Classics
-family updates for the rest of the Dinobot team turn out before we find out about the latest take on the oft-revisited. You can find the review video embedded below!
Just in tonight from the RFC Reviews channel, we've got a video review by diecast for the Generation Toy Tyrant, a figure based on IDW Megatron in his stealth bomber phase. Having appeared previously in toy form as a small Deluxe in the official Generations lineup in 2013, this larger format might find more appeal for its general scale, coming in just a bit taller than MP-10 Optimus. We've got the video embedded below, click through to have a look!
Holy crap! Transformers has too many names on their packaging. But this is Walmart Exclusive Transformers: The Last Knight Autobots Unite Deluxe Class Autobot Hot Rod.
The younger generation needs Transformers as well. If you want your children to have Transformers that are slightly more involved than Rescue Bots, then this is the way to go.
From diecast on RFC Reviews we have what we're pretty sure is the first video review for Meteor - original recipe style, that is, G1 cartoon inspired rather than Galaxy
Meteor. Meteor goes for as much of a cartoon-inspired look for Starscream as is practical on a figure that can still transform, and that efforts looks quite successful with mainly smooth surfaces, bright colors, and slightly rounded edges that clearly set it apart from where the official MP Starscream was aimed. The video review is a little over half an hour. Check it out embedded below for your first in hand look at this brand new release!
One more quick review from diecast on RFC Reviews tonight! FansToys recently brought out a replacement head option for their unofficial Masterpiece-style Grimlock, Grinder. This new head is modeled more closely after the look of the dinosaur mode in the G1 cartoon, giving an easy modification option for owners more inclined to that appearance. How easy? Well, diecast manages it in the space of about six minutes, and still has time for several off-color jokes in the process! Wow! Check out the video in the post below.
On the RFC Reviews channel, diecast has shared a video for the Hascon "exclusive" that caught most people's attention, Titans Return Arcee. This is the latest heavy retool of Blurr featuring a bonus die-cast metal Ultra Magnus Titan Master in addition to its own Titan Master Leinad. All information so far is that this will be available again outside of the convention distribution, with the info card at the event promising major retailers. Meantime, you can watch the video embedded below to get a better look at the whole set!
Diecast from Radio Free Cybertron and the RFC Reviews channel has a problem. That problem is the China-based marketplace website TaoBao. But sometimes this expensive habit of his benefits us, as today when diecast brings us a review of Cosmos Dominator, an unofficial light up Unicron bust that doesn't seem to have been picked up much by sellers outside China. But we've got a chance to check one out now, so click through to watch the video embedded below!
Slugslinger has a special place in my heart. It was the only Decepticon Targetmaster I had when I was young, so I knew I had to make sure I got the Titans Return update. I'll say it right now, Slugslinger's weapon is the best of the entire line, being the closest to the original G1 Targetmaster look, you almost miss the Titan Master interactivity. Transformation is simple but satisfying which leaves me wondering why its mold mate Triggerhappy is so involved. Even if it wasn't the last deluxe figure in the line Slugslinger would be a must have.
With Wave 2 from The Last Knight, the Legion Class finally gets some new molds, a trio in fact. Drift features an interesting leg transformation, Crosshairs has some interesting molding that resembles the trenchcoat, and Megatron is just an overall great figure. Hopefully, you'll be able to find these soon.
RFC and forums member, Diecast, reviews what is being called the ultimate movie edition Optimus Prime figure. The original Revenge of the Fallen mold has been reissued with new apps and updates as the Takara Tomy Hasbro Transformers Masterpiece MPM-04 Movie Optimus Prime figure. Is it more than meets the reprise? Watch the video review to find out.
