Courtesy of Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 we have another video review for the latest Transformers: Robots in Disguise Warrior class wave: Sideswipe, the teenage swordsbot! Check out the video embedded below for the wavemate of Jazz, and find out your fellow collector's thoughts on the toy - does it pass the bar?

Well, Hasbro can't win them all. Sideswipe has a great looking car mode, two tone paint and all, unfortunately that's where the compliments end. While the transformation is interesting, a flaw in the design prevents the torso from coming together properly and staying together, making posing the upper half of the figure impossible. Perhaps the inevitable repaint will somehow magically stay together, but I'm not holding out hope.

Popular Youtuber Peaugh has gotten his hands on the Transformers Collectors' Club Exclusive Lio Convoy, and as usual fired up his video camera for a review! The Beast Wars: Uprising character is a retool of the Generations Orion Pax mold, sports a new head sculpt, and shares all this in common with the other Club Exclusive Nova Prime. Keep scrolling to see the Peaugh's review, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your Transformers News!

Our old Seibertronian pal Chuck has some new reviews for us: Legion Class Underbite and Fixit

The Legion figures from RID continue to roll along with Underbite and Fixit. While both aren't the best a Legion toy can be, Underbite has a solid vehicle mode, while Fixit has a very expressive robot mode. Overall if I had to recommend one go with Underbite as One-Step Fixit is the better overall representation of the character.

Thanks to wonderful fellow Seibertronian Generator_G1, we have a brief pictorial review of the recently shipped and released Generations Combiner Wars Leader Class Ultra Magnus in all his IDW aesthetics and features, such as Minimus Ambus. Read on below to find out what they think of the ex-Duly Appointed Enforcer of the Tyrest Accord, and for some nice in-hand shots of the toy, including comparisons with Classics Ultra Magnus and some more recent releases like the CW Armada Megatron and MP Smokescreen!

Generator_G1 wrote:Just to consolidate and update my mini review (which is all over the place..lol)

Just some thoughts on Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus to those who might be interested....

1. His front panel detaches easily from the front. It still locks back into place though.
2. His shoulders are mistransformed out of the box, you have to push up until you hear a soft click to lock the shoulders.
3, His ratchets on his hips are very similar to CW Optimus as they only have a limited range of motion. Replacement ratchets would help here.
4. His cab does not detach from the trailer.
5. His feet are also mistransformed. Also no ankle tilts.
6. Minimus is pretty much required to sit inside Magnus in bot mode as he fills out the hollow area in the neck.
7. His elbows and knees are very soft ratchet joints. No loud clickety-clack sound from them.
8. Head only swivels from side to side. Can't look up unless you pop of UM's head and MA becomes visible.
9. He is very hollow when seen from the back. I guess some 3P would like to make fillers for the back of this legs and arms,
10. No wrist articulation.
11. His hands cannot hold his guns securely. They always fall off. I guess UM has butterfingers or something.
12. He does not roll very well. His crotch drags along the ground.
13, Minimus Ambus cannot be in the cab when UM is in vehicle mode. The inside of the cab is where the head goes.
14. No waist swivel.
15. Arms goes full 350 degrees at the shoulder/ Bicep swivels are present.
16. Thigh swivels are present.
17. No light piping on the Magnus head. He does have the aviator shades like in CW Defensor.

Size comparison with other bots

Transformers News: Pictorial Review - Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Leader Class Ultra Magnus


Overall for me, the figure is a 7/10. He looks good on a shelf and is a very good representation of the IDW Magnus but the build quality is not up to par with the Leader Class Megatron / Armada Megatron that preceded it.

Video Review - Takara Tomy Transformers Adventure TAV08 Gregevor and TAV13 Nemesis Prime

In addition to yesterday's promo video, and of course, the Seibertron.com galleries, fellow member chuckdawg1999 has also just shared with us a video review of two Takara Tomy Transformers Adventure toys: TAV-08 Gregevor (Greejeeber) and TAV-13 Nemesis Prime. The latter is the one we've covered already, but the former, an homage to the 2000 RID line Rollbar, is in fact a male redeco of Strongarm, which you can find here for comparison. Check out the embedded clip below!

Takara always seems to deliver unique repaints that homage niche characters from their market, and black Optimus Primes. Gregevor is one of those homages going back to the early 2000's RID character Rollbar. Nemesis Prime I guess could be said is a tribute to Scourge/Black Convoy from the same line; even though there have been many takes on the black Prime over the years. Both are worth a look if you're interested in well done repaints.

We can always rely on Chuck to give us the reviews for the newest toys and once again he delivers. Here is what he has for us this time: One Step Drift, Fracture and the highly anticipated Thunderhoof.

With each subsequent wave the RID One-Step changers keep getting better. Drift is a nice scaled down version of the Warrior Class mold while Thunderhoof is a great representation of the animated design. All three are highly recommended but if you only buy one Fracture is it due to how tightly the Motorcycle mode comes together.

Fellow Seibertronian and toy reviewer chuckdawg1999 has shared a video review showing off the last ofthe Transformers: Age of Extinction Power Battlers - and its redeco into the Takara Tomy Adventure line. Check out below the embedded clip for Claw Crush Junkheap (of which youcan see our own galleries here) and TED-05 Junkion, identical in all but the name and the colour palette!

The final figure from AOE is a Power Battler, that's really hard to find! Junkheap has a really fun chest claw gimmick that's unobtrusive and works with the toy. Junkion is the same character only in blue; it's also much easier, and cheaper to find.
