Our good friend Diablien has posted a video review for the recently released Henkei Ghost Starscream. This video review is not like the others we are used too. Much like the figure it is reviewing, it is a rare gem. Diablien goes over the history of Ghost Starscream, an intricate look at the packaging, the instructions, and comparisons to other uses of the mold. This overview will surely make you drool if you don't have the figure in your collection!
You can check the video out on Youtube or embed in this news post.

Looks like most of us won't be waiting till January for Human Alliance Barricade. Youtuber baltmatrix has gotten Barricade off of site sponsor BigBadToyStore and has taken the time to review the figure. He goes over articulation, transformation, interaction with Frenzy, and just about everything you'd expect from a video review. You can check it out on Youtube, or embed in this news post.
A Seibertronian shows some great class, as Energon Pub Member Diem has gotten his hands on Transformers Encore #19 - Big Mission 3. Residing in the Land of the Rising Sun, Diem has gotten the upper hand on us folk waiting for our pre-orders to come in. He's more or less reviewed the four mini-cassettes; Laserbeak, Rumble, Frenzy, and Overkill. His invaluable advice and purchase can be seen below.
I finally managed to get my hands on Encore 19. This set includes rereleases of G1 toys Condor (Lazerbeak), Frenzy, Rumble and Overkill.
First up is Condor. This figure is probably not too lusted after since anyone who's bought a G1 Soundwave in the last decade has this guy. That said, his weapons seem to fit more snugly than Encore Buzzsaw who, for me at least, had loose pegs. Unfortunately, the sliding system at the base of his neck seems to be having a small problem, with the result being that this bird is looking off to the side the whole time. It's not drastic, but if you're buying this set just for him be aware of the issue.
Next up, Frenzy and Rumble, or to avoid RIBFIR incidents, Fremble and Runzy. They have the diecast elbows and toes, and their joints hold up just fine. Thankfully their sproingy head mechanisms stil work well, and their faces are painted silver rather than white, as someone (I forget who) was worrying about. Notably their thigh stickers, which appear on both the box photos and on the instructions, are absent. I t looks like there may have been a last-minute change,or maybe a factory problem that'll be sorted out on later releases.
People have been saying of the photos that Fremble (the blue guy) looks a slightly different colour to his original release. Sadly, my 1985 Fremble lives in the UK, so I can't check, but from memory he looks the same shade, or very similar. If anyone can give a good example of another blue TF to compare him to, I'll be happy to check.
I was pretty excited about Overkill, since he was the only mold here I didn't already own. And yeah, he's fine. His jaw isn't the tightest joint ever, but it isn't exactly loose. And his legs can still come apart, even though the instructions don't say it. Be careful though, his body starts to come apart a little too!
As per the other Encore cassette releases, they each come with a clear tape case.
I imagine that this may be the most popular set of cassettes so far, what with the first use of the Fremble mold since 1987 (I think) and with three popular characters...and Overkill included, I recommend this set. My prediction is that this set could well sell out, so get in fast guys!

The Transformers fandom finally gets a look at Human Alliance Barricade outside of the plastic packaging prison. MidnightBliss over at TFW2005 offers a little review and images of the fourth instalment to the Human Alliance toy line. Check out a snippet of what he has to say and a picture below....
Transformation is really close to the deluxe version. A few more little steps added and that's it. Like Bumblebee he has a weapon for one of his hands. The left hand is a "spinning blade" that pops out when you press the gas cap on the car. Frenzy can ride in the car or under the hood ala the deluxe version.
Video reviews have quickly become a cool way for Transformers fans to learn more about new and upcoming toy releases, giving fans a lot more info of a toy "in action" before they take the plunge and purchase it.
Seibertron.com's own Toom1275 has gotten himself into the act. He has posted a pair of videos on YouTube featuring Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Legends class Soundwave and Wheelie.
Included in the videos are size comparisons with Legends Bumblebee, the deluxe class versions of Soundwave and Wheelie and also a look at their transformations.

When the first designs of a Generation One Arcee toy were made, many of you, including myself, weren't even born yet. 2010 looks to be the year that we finally get an Arcee figure that somewhat resembles her Generation One self. Let's just say it's been a long time coming.
Youtuber Peaugh has gotten Animated Arcee and Cybertron Mode Ratchet, both brand new figures. He goes over the usual - articulation and transformation. In other words, it's an entertaining look at a couple of figures we will soon own in the future. Check out the Arcee and Ratchet reviews on Youtube or embed into the news post.
Cybertron Mode Ratchet
Hasbro stated that these two will be released in Spring 2010. However with them already being in the company of a handful of collectors, does this mean that their release will be earlier?
If you just can't get enough of the third instalment to TakaraTomy's Alternity toy line, then Youtube reviewer Peaugh has taken videos of both figures. Both listed as Alternity A-03, Bumble (Champion Yellow) and Cliff (Red Pearl) take the forms of a Suzuku Swift. You can check both of them embed in this news post or linked to Youtube below.
We haven't heard anything about Takara's 'Shanghai Attack' Demolisher in quite some time. For all we know, it's still Takara only and Desert Combat (Red) Rampage is the only movie-accurate Constructicon to be issued by both Hasbro and Takara. Regardless, GenZhao at KOToys.com was the first to take a gallery of the figure, and now has made a Youtube video for it. He goes over the usual, transformation, articulation, and comparisons to the original. You can check out the video on Youtube or embed in this news post.

For those who have ordered the CDHW-01 Devastator Head off of CrazyDevy, it looks like your package will be arriving in the near future. Energon Pub Member Torneira recieved his today and has taken some pictures. You can check them out below, as well as what he has to say about the product.
Well, I have received the new headmold for Devastator and I must say it looks very cool. It needs some assembly with a cross head screwdriver but it ain't too difficult. Unfortunately to turn the light on or to keep it burning, when it's placed inside the head is the hard part... It took me several attempts, due to the sensitivity of the little led-light. But I succeeded to do so atlast.
Batteries are included and need to placed inside with the written side (+) upside down in the rightupstanding head. You can re-use your screws from your Devastator figure to attach the head tight on the body. But the instructions on the backside of the package will show you how to do it.
