Review: TF5 Voyager Nitro

September 9, 2017

Decent in both modes, but a pain to transform.

Review: TRU Exclusive Infernocus

August 27, 2017

Looks nice, but they still haven’t fixed all the limb problems. Don’t get unless you really want to spend time fixing its flaws.

Review: Titans Return Deluxe Wave 5

August 26, 2017

Windblade with Scorchfire, Misfire with Aimless, and Twin Twist with Flameout are all good toys. My own copy of Twin Twist is a bit iffy, but I’m told by others that most copies don’t have the problems mine does, so I’m willing to go Strongly Recommended on it.

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.
