Our fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 has shared another Transformers Generations Combiner Wars wave 2 figure video review, and we keep to the Stunticons with Breakdowm! Check out the embedded clip below, and their thoughts, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub.

Shakedown, Takedown, you're busted! It's Breakdown, probably one of the best known Stunticons due to its use as various Bot-Con exclusives over the years. The hip joints will take some getting used to, but once mastered pull off an ingenious leg transformation. I expect this mold to be used often in the years to come.

chuckdawg1999 has given us a good first look at what to expect from the upcoming Stunticon Offroad in his newest video review.

Here's what Chuck has to say:

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Like Alpha Bravo, Offroad is a new character that shares some design cues from an older character, in this case Wildrider. Since it uses a transformation scheme that is very reminiscent to the Aerialbots one has to wonder if this a retool or at the least shares a buck with the Autobot team. Offroad might be my favorite CW figure released thus far and is the stand out member of the Stunticons.



Is he worth your money and time? Check out the video review and see if he's the right fit for you, and when you're done, come on back to the forums to share your thoughts with us!

It should be noted that Offroad is a shared mold and has already been retooled into the upcoming (and unreleased) First Aid from the Protectobots team in wave 3. Most of the torsos, limbs and Legends figures will be retools and redecos of one another to save costs for Hasbro and allow them to produce more figures for us to enjoy and create custom combiners.

Looking for the fourth limb to your Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Superion? Look no further than Hasbro's Air Raid, according to fellow Seibertron.com member chuckdawg1999! And if you don't believe us reporting it, read on below for their opinion, and check out the video review of the missing Aerialbot embedded below.

This is it, the final member of the Aerialbots, and the final limb for Superion. Air Raid is probably my favorite limb since the jet mode reminds me of the Skystriker from GI Joe. Transformation is very similar to the rest of the team right down to the fantastic hinged leg joints. If you're a fan you've probably already have this figure on order, hope it comes to you real soon.

Fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 brings us our first proper look at the second wave of Transformers: Robots in Disguise One-Step changers - and actually sounds quite positive about the new version of Steeljaw and Grimlock, plus the first toy we have of new character Fixit. Check out the embedded clip below for more!

While many collectors pass on these toys due to their simplistic nature, I think they're missing out on some fantastic engineering. There are three figures in this wave and each one features its own, unique transformation. I think most people will go for Fixit since that's the new, kid friendly character, but Grimlock and even Steeljaw have something to offer.

After posting our galleries of the recently released Power Attackers Chainsaw Thrash Vehicon and High Octane Bumblebee figures from Hasbro's Transformers Age of Extinction line yesterday, we received several requests for a video review demonstrating the articulation of these figures. Unfortunately, due to their gimmicks both figures suffer from a lack of articulation. If you're at all familiar with the Power Attackers (or Power Battlers depending on who you ask and what day it is), then you know what you're getting with these figures. Check out our video review below on Seibertron.com's YouTube channel.

Transformers: Robots In Disguise (Animated Series) Pilot Review

The new animated series Transformers: Robots in Disguise has aired already in the Australian cyclone-lands, and Seibertron.com board admin Burn was able to both watch the Pilot and report on it without giving too much away! Read on below for a breakdown and thought cap on this new venture for team Bumblebee.

Burn Reviews Transformers:Robots in Disguise


So I guess this job falls to me after having watched the two-part "Pilot".

First and foremost, from what I've seen of the series from the initial character designs, through to a few short videos, and then the toys, I wasn't expecting much from the series.

Suffice to say, I've been pleasantly surprised.

The show, may be ... fun. There's a number of moments where you just have to laugh. Put that down to the characterisation, all of the characters are incredibly unique. So let's run through them!

THE CHARACTERS

Bumblebee - The veteran, reluctantly thrown into the leader position of a bunch of misfits. It's so weird hearing him talk ...
Strongarm - The ride-along, a stickler for the law. She quotes the rules more than Red Dwarf's Rimmer quoted Space Corps directives. Young and out to impress her ranking officer.
Sideswipe - The perp, reluctantly dragged into the mix when arrested by Strongarm. Very little respect for authority, but being one of the good guys, he'll fall into line eventually.
Fix-It - The mini-con, in charge of a prison transport ship that has crashed to Earth. Currently suffering glitches which you could describe as dyslexia. Not really living up to his name ...
Denny - The father, a collector of ... things ...
Russell - The son, not a collector, typical cartoon human kid
Grimlock - The Dinobot, an escaped prisoner from the transport ship, a little amnesic over a few details, not a fan of Underbite. Also nothing like previous Grimlocks.

Which brings us to ...

Underbite - The Chompazoid, the first escaped prisoner we meet. The Popeye of the Transformers world (his spinach is anything metal), a body builder type personality who loves his muscles ... a lot. Fun and interesting character. And not a Dinobot.

Oh and then there's that other guy who's dead ... kinda ... he's still preachy.

THE ANIMATION

I liked it. The aesthetic may not be my preference, but it worked quite well for my liking.

THE STORY

It was different, it was unique. This isn't your usual "Optimus Prime and his team are out to stop Megatron and the Decepticons with help from the humans". This is a whole new team with only one character we know well. It's a bold new move, and it works. It proves we don't need established names to enjoy a Transformers cartoon. Just give it a good story. As I said, there's little bits of comedy. Underbite, despite being the bad guy, is a character you can get behind.

OVERALL

It's good. It's worth watching. It's got potential. Some series you watch "just so you can join in the conversation", this one is WORTH watching because I think many will enjoy it, and so you can join in the conversation, right here, on the Energon Pub forums!

A YouTube video by fellow Transfan Darkon633 provides us with the first video review of Robots In Disguise One-Step Changer Fix-It. Fix-It is part of Wave 2, which is currently shipping to retailers both at brick and mortar stores, such as Walmart, and online retailers such as Entertainment Earth.

Before you run off to buy this little mechanic bot, check out the video review to see if he's right for your collection. In the video, there's a scale comparison and in robot mode he seems to scale quite well with the rest of the Warrior Class figures.

When you're done watching the video, come on back to the forums to share your thoughts!

Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Kal El, we now have the first video review of the Armada version of Generations Leader Megatron, which was previously reviewed here. The 2015 Toy Fair also allowed us to take a bunch of pictures of him for those interested in seeing more.

Kal El also has a review of the G1 deco version of Leader Megatron and will also be posting a comparison video. You can follow his reviews here.

Fellow Seibertronian member gema has gone through the painstaking task of preparing a pictorial review on their own blog for the soon-arriving Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Leader Megatron. Even further, they then shared the imaged and thoughts with everyone else in the Energon Pub, and you can view a selection, and some thoughts, below!

One of the biggest complaint heard during his announcement was that his alt mode. Megatron transform into a silver tank instead of a gun. For me personally, I think I can understand Hasbro's decision behind Megatron's alt mode. They tried giving Megatron a gun for his alt mode but due to legal issues, he ended up being a Nerf-like gun (Classics, 2006). So, either funny looking gun or badass tank, I preferred the latter.

[...]

I hated him when Hasbro released his promo pictures but in hand, man, he's gorgeous! Despite unable to give Megatron his G1 alt mode, Hasbro did a really good job giving him G1 robot mode design. May I say, even better than MP-05?

[...]

Megatron comes with a ball-jointed head (wide range), ratchet joint on the elbows, wrist swivels, waist swivels (limited unless you push the tank tread on his back upwards, giving clearance. The hips are on universal joints with swivels just below them. The knees are on ratchet joint and there's small, almost none, ankle tilts.

[...]

Combiner Wars Optimus Prime can be considered a big voyager and personally, the size of these two really works as I always prefer the bad guy to be bigger. But the biggest question about Leader Class Megatron was when Takara posted a picture comparing him (Takara Version) with MP-10 Convoy.

We've seen the galleries already, but in an amusing turn of events the Seibertron.com store sold one to fellow user chuckdawg1999 - who has shared a video review with us, coming full circle!

Hyperchange Optimus Prime is a fun figure, existing as a halfway point between One-Step Changers and Power Battlers. The figure while simple is dense and solid with plastic, giving it a heft that I've missed over the last few years. One flaw is the size doesn't make it optimal for desk toy status, but that shouldn't detract you from seeking this rolling power of awesomeness out!
