Best Hasbro Toy: Deluxe Class Rook. Hasbro went all out on Rook,his unconventional weapon ports plus his bulky proportion make for a really good combination.



The Best Toy Reveal: Combiner Wars Bruticus

Best Official Toy (H): Platinum Insecticons Old look with new plastic just brought back the nostalgia, just what I wanted out of them.

Best Official Toy (TakTom): Nightbird I cant believe they went that far back and made a toy for her after this long you would think everything had been done.

Best Masterpiece Toy: Road Rage Looks gorgeous the colors really pop. I had never known of this repaint.

Best Unofficial Toy: Sever I love the transformation. Looks complicated but super fun.

Best news Item: Combiner Wars animation announcement I cant wait for a more adult styled cartoon.

Best Toy Reveal: Titan Master Galvatron A headmaster Galvatron is just a brilliant idea. Center table was a good call.

Best Official Toy: Combiner Wars Prowl. ( He just looks so nice, especially when you compare him to the rest of his team. )


Best News Item: Combaticon Awareness Week. ( I just though it was very interesting to remind myself of all the good and bad that a Bruticus had to offer throughout the years. )


Best Toy Reveal: Masterpiece Optimus Primal ( As someone who doesn't currently collect Masterpiece figures and is a huge fans of Beast Wars, I am excited for this. I home it turns out well. )

Sorry for the double post, I can't edit.......




  • Best Official Toy (Hasbro) - Voyager Hot Spot - great robot mode, awesome articulation, makes great use of the ladder, and makes a great torso too boot.
  • Best Official Toy (TakaraTomy) - Unite Warriors Devastator - the best version of a pretty good toy
  • Best Masterpiece Toy - Blue Bluestreak - he just looks fantastic, and I'm not even a fan of the character
  • Best Unofficial (third party) Toy
  • Best Comic Issue Or Storyline - More than Meets the Eye issue # 44 - awesome story, especially those final couple pages
  • Best News Item (any category)
  • Best Toy Reveal - Skylynx - This came out of nowhere!!!!

Best Official Toy (Hasbro) – Combiner Wars Titan Class Devastator! The articulation of the combined form, despite its size, and the fact it’s a combiner and holds together perfectly is amazing. The sculpts of the combined mode as well as all of his individual Constructicon parts, in both robot and alt modes are superb!


Best Official Toy (Takara Tomy) – Legends LG15 Nightbird Shadow! Great rendition of a previously used mold with newly sculpted head. Additional unique weapons and an excellent homage to the original cartoon character.


Best Masterpiece Toy – MP-11T Thundercracker! The modifications made to the transformation/figure since my first experience with it’s like (Hasbro Masterpiece Starscream) were a breath of fresh air! They made this figure far more like one should expect from a Masterpiece series.


Best Unofficial (3rd Party) Toy – WarbotronWB01-E Fierce Attack (aka Onslaught)! Not only does this figure complete the (not) Combaticons set to make the very impressive “Brute” combiner, but this guy is massively impressive all on his own. The Transformation, sculpting, paint applications, articulation and plastic quality are all top notch!


Best Comic Issue or Storyline – Combiner Wars storyline! It was fun to have a story to go along with the figures being produced outside of the latest animated series.


Best News Item – Voting between Omega Supreme, Trypticon and Scorponok as the next Titan class figure!


Best Toy Reveal – Early shots of Titans Return Leader Class Power Master Optimus Prime!

    • Hello and welcome to "That's Just Prime!" Ep. 240! Today we're taking a look at the 2022 Holiday Optimus Prime!    
    • As an appropriate way to close out a bumper year of G1 cartoon production material being uncovered and brought to the public. The Sunbow Marvel Archive is now able to add one more full storyboard set before 2022 comes to an end. David Wise' debut episode - Attack Of The Autobots - now joins S.O.S Dinobots, Heavy Metal War, City Of Steel, Atlantis Arise!, Sea Change and Cosmic Rust as the seventh storyboard set available online. Drawn by six artists, including Peter "Aeon Flux" Chung, this set appears to be working off the first draft script instead of the finalised one. As the majority of dialogue is completely different to what was broadcast. Also, Act II includes a vastly different look and approach to the episode's central plot device: the recharging chamber To view Attack Of The Autobots directly, head to the dedicated gallery page: The Sunbow Marvel Archive: The Transformers MP 700-19 Attack Of The Autobots full storyboard For the six other television episodes, as well as the complete boards for Transformers The Movie, head to the main gallery index: The Sunbow Marvel Archive: Storyboard viewing gallery index
