Review: Power Bank Optimus Prime

October 20, 2017

Cute idea and a decent 6500mAh power bank, but the robot mode could have used a bit more work in the design room. Very mildly recommended.


Review: Titans Return Blitzwing

October 18, 2017

Good robot mode, but significant problems with the vehicle modes, and a few design elements that seem to have been forgotten halfway through. Mildly recommended.

Review: Titans Return Deluxe Slugslinger

October 14, 2017

Pretty good re-retool. Slugslinger is the only new character in the final wave.

Review: TF5 Deluxe Drift and Sqweeks

October 12, 2017

Drift is an okay retool of the AoE version, more colorful. Sqweeks is surprisingly good, recommended.

Review: Titans Return Octone

October 10, 2017

Octane, Tankor, Octone, whatever…the mold works better here than as Prime, that’s for sure.

Review: TF5 Voyager Scorn

October 5, 2017

Recommended, would be strongly recommended if not for a couple of flaws.

Review: Walmart exclusive Hot Rods

October 4, 2017

Legion Hot Rod is uninspiring and unlicensed but decent, Deluxe Hot Rod shows what could have been done with the RiD2001 shellmaster style if they’d kept at it. Both recommended.

Review: Siege on Cybertron

September 27, 2017

Not as good as Chaos on Velocitron. The mold changes in Magnus Prime are mostly bad ones for the toy on its own, being meant to help attach GodBomber.

Review: TF Cyber Battalion BB, OP, Prowl, Jetfire

September 16, 2017

They’re all very clearly budget toys, but Prowl and Jetfire are decent within those limits.
