Review: Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime/Orion Pax set

August 12, 2017

Recommended, although if you already have WfC Optimus you might want to sell off this one, it’s not all that different (mostly brighter).

The instructions are SO much better than the murky crap we’ve been getting from Titans Return:

Review: Trypticon

August 12, 2017

If not for all the hassle getting this in shape, it’d be strongly recommended. As it stands, recommended, and only if you’re willing to do some work on it or know someone who’ll do it for you.

Review: Titan Masters waves 4-5

August 5, 2017

Repugnus is decent, Shuffler excellent, Ramhorn a pretty good retool of Shuffler.

Review: PRiD Team Combiners wave 1

August 1, 2017

Menasor is a little better than Ultra Bee, but neither is that impressive. Power Core Combiners were better overall, despite the lack of individual robot modes on the limbs…the individual robot modes on Menasor and Ultra Bee components are pretty weak.

Review: TF5 TRU exclusive Deluxe Skullitron and Megatron

July 21, 2017

Skullitron looks nice as a robot but the dragon mode is horrible. Megatron is a headswap of T30 Stealth Bomber Megatron, with none of the flaws fixed…and it’s still a better overall toy than Skullitron.

Review: TF5 Voyager Megatron, Hound

July 16, 2017

Megatron strongly recommended, Hound recommended.

Review: TF5 Legion class wave 2

July 7, 2017

Megatron is good, Crosshairs is okay, Drift is an okay design applied to the wrong character.

Review: TF:LK Premier Voyager Optimus Prime

June 17, 2017

Really good engineering, but still turns into a Bayformer. Recommended.

Review: Titans Return Seaspray

June 11, 2017

Seaspray is recommended. I didn’t get the Cosmos redeco, but it’s a good mold and if you missed the previous version, it’s worth getting now.

Review: Titans Return Sky Shadow

June 9, 2017

Recommended, an all-around good toy.
