  1. Star Convoy is a great use of the POTP Optimus Prime mold that unfortunately is showing its age. The legs on Convoy have a tendency to pop off while the combined Star Convoy has weak ankle joints except for the pivot which is extremely helpful holding the figure upright and distributing the weight. The overall look is fantastic but maybe wait for a sale to pick this figure up.
  2. Impactor is a solid hunk of plastic beef that follows in lockstep with the name Wrecker. Transformation is smooth and satisfying. This is a figure that will have a long life on desks of many G1 comic fans. Definitely worth the pick-up.
  3. Barricade is a repaint of the Generations Selects Smokescreen figure and it is gorgeous, the best looking Transformers figure that I can remember in a long time. My favorite aspect of the figure's deco has to be the gray/lavender combo that's used on the limbs. Highly recommended.
  4. Out of the three Datsun brothers, Smokescreen is my favorite since the character got quite a bit of development in the G1 cartoon. Like Bluestreak, Smokescreen comes with the shoulder launchers that are clearly based on the animation model for G1 Smokescreen. If you can find it for a reasonable price Smokescreen is a must for any collection.
  5. Jetfire is a fun Deluxe sized Cyberverse figure with an unobtrusive gimmick and good articulation. The plastic may feel thin in some areas and the ball joints will loosen over time. Overall this is a fun toy that should be in your collection.
  6. The Grimlock included with this set is the best Cyberverse figure I've handled. Transformation is fun and very intuitive. The Trash Crash armor piece is ok but doesn't add much except for some color. I recommend the set based solely on the Grimlock figure alone.
  7. It's the 35th anniversary of The Transformers; pause while we all realize just how old we are... OK. Bluestreak is a nice looking repaint of Prowl that features the iconic shoulder blasters. If you're looking to complete the car bros, then Bluestreak is a no brainer, but I have to say the figure stands on it own quite well and is well worth the purchase.
  8. Refraktor was one of the surprises from the Siege line when it/they were first announced. Once the blacklight images were revealed on the packaging rumors started of some sort of set that would include three figures plus some extra parts to complete the camera look. Well, if HasCon 2019 had happened this Reconnaissance set would've been one of the exclusives. Featuring three of the Refraktor molds done up in the original G1 toy colors with an extra flash, camera grip, and housing to better complete the camera look. It's a cool set and an easy way to get all three members of the team in one shot.
  9. You can watch the video to find out about the toy but right now I'd like to tell you about Chris Hyatte. Chris wrote for many sites back in the late 90s to the early/mid-2000s and besides bringing a unique view to Pro-Wrestling help create the concept of "Scholarly" reviews of comics and toys. Right now he's not doing so good so if you can contribute click the link below, if not enjoy my review of MP-44. You Got To Be Kidneying Me
  10. Somebody wasted a question on this? It was probably the production mold that's unusable, if Hasbro wanted to they could've made a new one from the master mold but they probably didn't want to spend the money, daddy needs a new 911. The better question would've been how are people going to be able to see the figures in box if they're removing plastic windows?
  11. With the release of this set we now have SEVEN versions of the Tetra Jet mold and a complete set of the G1 Seekers. Skywarp is like any of the other versions of this mold but with a slightly different facial expression. The Battlemasters just reminds me of what we could've had with a few different barrel parts. If you're not set on completing the dastardly trio there's not much here to recommend then.
  12. Hasbro always seems to have store exclusives for its current Transformers lines and Siege is no exception. We've already taken a look at Ratchet but Hasbro delivers again via Amazon a trio of pretty good repaints. G2 Sideswipe is the third use of the mold and in many ways the best. Slamdance is a great figure as long as it has both its wings and the left foot doesn't break off. Trenchfoot is the Blowpipe mold in black and red, that's about all. I can recommend the set but don't wait for discounts since once it's gone, it's gone.
  13. Another point that might be a reason that people aren't going in on this is the fact that this is Hasbro, the company that brought us Prime Airacnid, Armada Sideswipe, Prime Wars P/CP and countless other "bad" toys and toys misassembled leaving the factory. Imagine paying close to $630 (tax and shipping) only for Unicron having some defect and your only options are sending it back, or trying to fix it yourself.
  14. Deadlock is the name Drift used when he was a Decepticon, represented here in the Cyberverse line using a design that looks a little like Drift's Generations toy. Unfortunately, the weapon gimmick doesn't work as well as it should, like almost every other Warrior Class figure, and the plastic feels cheap in certain spots. Those issues aside I quite like the figure and think it's actually one of the better Warrior Class figures in the line.
  15. The Siege Micromaster Off-Road Patrol are ok robots, great vehicles, and a weapon mode that should be burned with fire. The combined blaster had the potential of being great but the tightness of a peg and hole connection, as well as no real way to lock the legs in, leaves it wanting. If you have or are interested in getting the Target exclusive 10 pack then I don't think you need to pick this set up.
