Review of IDW Transformers: Optimus Prime #15

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 06:24:00 CST

(image) Surfeit of Cool A Review of Optimus Prime #15 Free of any explicit spoilers, but several implied ones made it in here. Already very cool, but way cooler if you imagine it with the sound box. This week in Transformers comics, quality returns with the arrival of Optimus Prime 15, "The Falling, Chapter 1: Surfeit of Primes". Much more than a mere exercise in thematic brand synergy, this latest chapter of John Barber's Optimus Prime starts an ominous new chapter for our heroes - not to ...

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 21:43:00 CST

(image) Ready for some tiny Masterpiece goodness? Regular toy reviewer and fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg1999 has done a video review for the latest MP release, MP 15/16E, Cassettebot vs. Cassettetron. They've been released for a few weeks now, and as Chuck explains, they homage some very obscure figures from two different Encore releases from 2012, Soundblaster (who came with Enemy and Wingthing) and Twincast (who came with Stripes and Nightstalker). While Masterpiece Stripes uses the MP Ravage ... View the full news story on Seibertron.com by clicking here.

Wed, 3 Jan 2018 00:56:00 CST

(image) Thanks to regular reviewer and Seibertronian Chuckdawg1999, we have a review of Takara Transformers Legends Bumblebee, a slight repaint of Titans Return Bumblebee which also comes with a retooled Headmaster Titan Master version of Spike, featuring the face of Cerebros as he appeared in the "The Rebirth" episodes of the US G1 series.

Machinima Transformers Titans Return Episode 9 REVIEW

Tue, 2 Jan 2018 17:12:00 CST

(image) Happy New Year, Seibertronians! With a new year comes more Titans Return, and so we arrive on the ninth episode of Machinima's animated series. Head-scratching moments abound, so let's just dive right in! We open right where the previous episode left off, as Fort Max stands before Trypticon with Optimus, Windblade, and Emissary in his hand. And almost immediately off the bat we're reminded of one of the series' biggest issues. Fort Max is pelted with bolts from the same cannon that fired ...

Video Review of Takara Legends LG-55 Slugslinger

Sat, 30 Dec 2017 13:30:00 CST

(image) Seibertron's very own Japan corespondent, Matt, has sent us the very first video review of Takara Transformers Legends LG-55 Slugslinger. He does a great job at comparing it to the original toy and showing where some deco choices come from. It is interesting to note that while the Hasbro version (which we also included a review of or those interested in comparing) is usually meant to be more toy accurate, this Takara version does have very important features that the G1 toy had which the Hasbro ...

(image) Welcome back, Seibertronians! If you celebrate it, I hope you had a very Merry Christmas, you had a good time with your friends and loved ones, and that Santa left many robots under your tree. But let's forget about all the happy feelings we've acquired over the past few days and immediately throw them into a pit of despair and agony, because it's time again for Machinima's Titans Return! Okay, I'm being overdramatic, because this series on the whole is still leagues better than any ... View the full news story on Seibertron.com by clicking here.

Hunted down on his own ship, the master manipulator has one last trick of his sleeve—something so shocking, so audacious, that it would put the most evil Decepticon to shame. No one is safe as the Mutineers Trilogy reaches its jaw-dropping climax. Self-awareness is good, I guess..? Story This week, we return to the Lost Light, and look at the ...

As you may remember, these Infobar figures were revealed a good ways back, almost a year ago now, and back in February we posted a story about what these figures are and what they do.

Machinima Transformers Titans Return Episode 7 REVIEW

Tue, 19 Dec 2017 14:52:00 CST

(image) So, we've finally reached the seventh episode of Machinima's Titans Return animated series. Last week was miles away from the best episode we've gotten thus far, so does this week's fare any better? Let's find out and dive deep into Episode 8 of Titans Return. Before we get into the episode we're greeted with a title card that presents the name of this episode. You heard it. We really should.

Power of the Primes Voyager Starscream Pictorial Review

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 12:15:00 CST

(image) While many are enjoying their deluxe and legends class toys from Power of the Primes, which have been fine for the most part, the voyagers are definitely the most divisive toys from the line. For a reason that still boggles the mind, Hasbro never did reveal that Voyager Starscream could turn into a torso, nor is that torso mode found in any promotional or stock images. This simply added more mystery to a toy that many were lukewarm about. So below is a pictorial review to help you see what the ... View the full news story on Seibertron.com by clicking here.

But let's delve into the new episode and figure out exactly why! Here's Titans Return Episode 6! We open with a (pretty cool?) shot of Trypticon, who's still raging through the city completely unopposed now with the death of Metroplex in the previous episode.

The figure includes a smaller, deluxe-ish Hot Rod figure, which then interacts with the armor for the Evolution gimmick, including some partsforming for the ...

In Depth Look at All New Transformers 4.5" Toys in Video Review of Megatron, Optimus, Starscream and Bumblebee

Fri, 8 Dec 2017 23:11:00 CST

(image) Chefatron has posted a video review of the entire set of the 4.5" figures part of a new generic line simply labeled "Transformers". This video features Megatron, Optimus Prime, Starscream and Bumblebee. Each of these transform in 3-4 steps but have a very different range of articulation from one figure to the next, as we find out in the video. Megatron and Starscream, for instance have ball jointed elbows which both Bumblebee and Optimus Prime lack. The size between the toys is also slightly ...

As the final One-Step Changer in said line, the figure seems to be a positive note to close out on, featuring a good-looking vehicle mode, effective transformation and a robot mode remarkably accurate to the character's in-show appearance (albeit with some significant kibble on its back).
