  1. Thrust is a good figure, like the other Seekers, but it's not worth the high mark-ups that you're finding on the secondary market. Then again, if you're a collector you kinda need it to complete the team.
  2. Besides being useful to scare family members, Blackarachnia is actually a solid figure, better than the Masterpiece some say. Transformation at first looks a little complicated but everything comes together well and after a few go-arounds is rather easy. If you're a fan of Beast Wars then this figure is definitely worth the pick-up.
  3. While I'm happy that Beast Wars fans are getting updates to some of their favorite characters, Optimus Primal feels like a lot of work for very little in return. Some steps of the transformation are needlessly complex and fiddly, a simple leg fold would've worked better than a double knee. Playing with the figure really makes me appreciate just how great the original Primal toy was, and I recommend picking that one up if you've never experienced it.
  4. This is an interesting set as it really shows how far designs have come in almost four years. P/CP is a great figure and sells the set if you missed out on the POTP release. Barricade like the Siege release looks really good and might just be the best use of the mold. The shades of black and even dark brown used really make the figure stand out. If you're debating on buying the set I recommend going for it because there's a chance once it's gone, it's gone.
  5. Scourge is a fantastic figure and would definitely fit in the Masterpiece buster category if there was a Masterpiece Scourge. Sure the figure is a shell-former, but it works since the shell is an integral part of the robot mode look. You have to have Scourge to complete your 86 update shelf.
  6. Kup from the Studio Series is a great figure. While not the best representation of the character, it's hard to decide between this and the Legends version, I think this figure offers some interesting gimmicks that tie into the movie aesthetic well. Kup is a crusty old codger who is worth a place in your collection.
  7. Sure Deep Cover is the 8th or so repaint of Sideswipe, but it has blue accents so it gets a pass from me. Based on an early 2000s Ehobby exclusive that, was an homage to a Diaclone release from way back in the day, Deep Cover has quite the pedigree. The coolest aspect of the figure is that this is a 1:1 scale representation of the character if it was real. Most versions of the Sideswipe mold are still easily available so find one that works the best for you.
  8. Blurr is a good figure that suffers from some mold limitations. Transformation is fun with a few interesting bits, although some tabs are a bit too hard to peg together. The underarm pylons are an eyesore and unavoidable, but not as bad in hand. Overall this figure is worth a pick-up but not a first-round grab.
  9. Although it's part of the Kingdom line Cyclonus is a MUST for your Studio Series 86 collection. Transformation is solid, robot and jet mode are spot on to the animation, there's nothing more I can really say about this figure. Highest possible recommendation.
  10. Jazz is a brilliant figure and a near-perfect homage to the original animation model. Transformation is smooth and fairly simple that's satisfying going to and from the vehicle mode. I can't recommend Jazz enough.
  11. ME GRIMLOCK KICK BUTT!! That this figure does do, in spades. Studio Series 86 Grimlock is a fantastic figure, from the deco to the articulation and transformation. Sure there are small nit-picks here and there, and Wheelie could've been better, but for most of us, this is the Grimlock we've been waiting for.
  12. The Deluxe Class version of Prowl from Cyberverse does a few things better than the Siege or Earthrise versions. Some collectors might be turned off by the new style of white plastic that the figure uses but it feels good in my hand. Overall I'm a big fan of the blue deco as it's a nice change to the usual black and white traditional look of Prowl. Between Prowl and Starscream it's hard to choose but I do feel Prowl belongs in any Cyberverse collection.
  13. Technically this is an ok figure. It also embodies everything I find wrong with the movie aesthetic and the toys that try to recreate those designs. You might enjoy it, but I don't. If you buy it, good luck. Oh yeah, There's a mini Shia Lebouf figure included too.
  14. Deluxe Class Starscream is a fantastic figure and probably the best version of Cybervervse Starscream that we're going to get. Transformation is involved but satisfying, every step has a point and parts come together well. The blast effects are solid additions and really make the figure come alive. Very highly recommended.
  15. The Buzzworthy line is a celebration of all things Bumblebee, and I love it. This figure, a surprise right at the end of 2020, looks to fit in with the Kingdom Core Class figures. Transformation is relatively easy, any issues are due to the size and ball joints being ball joints, and I have to tip my hat to the weapon storage. Spike, while being simple, is a fun little addition. All in all, a great set.
