Transformers: The Last Knight - Review From Radio Free Cybertron's Brian Kilby

Despite the premiere happening right now, there have already been advance screenings of Transformers: The Last Knight. And Radio Free Cybertron's own Brian Kilby has seen it! His spoiler-free review is positive, and most surprisingly says that most of the rough edges we've come to associate with the Transformers film franchise are not present here. Keep reading for a sample plus a link to the full review in both text and audio formats!

Let me preface everything I’m going to say with this: This is the same dumb movie you’ve already seen four times already, perfected. It’s better than all of the earlier films, in pretty much every way. In a way I’m doing a bit of a disservice by calling it dumb. Of all the Transformers movies, this is the most logically consistent, thoughtful, and endearing. Most importantly, for me, it’s the first film that isn’t offensively crude, sexist, or rife with stereotypes. I can’t fault the movie for any of the crimes of its predecessors, and I didn’t once utter a groan while watching this movie. I can genuinely say that I liked Transformers 5, and I am not embarrassed to say so. In my own headcanon, in a way this is the first Transformers movie, and the ones that came before don’t count.

Odds are good there'll be more talk about the movies tomorrow night on Radio Free Cybertron! the live stream will start about 8PM US Eastern Time on YouTube, so be sure to check it out!

Thanks to Yenting Lai of TFND on Facebook, we've got some in hand photos of Nightbird from the newest wave of Generations Selects. Nightbird is a minor retool of Siege Chromia, just replacing Chromia's head. As seen previously, the accessories remain just the same, though an alternate configuration or two has been seen to try to present some of the parts as forming a melee weapon of some sort.

The newest wave of Generations Selects is starting to be available overseas, and TFND's Yenting Lai has posted out of package photos to Facebook this afternoon. First up is Powerdasher Zetar, the retool of Weaponizer Brunt as the G1 drill-type Powerdasher. Powerdasher Zetar features a new head and drill accessory which can attach to 5mm pegs for placement in robot and vehicle modes.
