Review of Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers #1

Hello Seibertronians, First Gen here with a (hopefully) better late than never review of one of the most anticipated comic books to be brought to us by IDW Publishing, Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers #1!

Our story begins 3 years in the past from the current story arc, Transformers Ongoing, in the Autobot Penitentiary Garrus-9. Under seige by Decepticon attack, Fortress Maximus and the few Autobots who are left to fend off the attack, fall to Overlord and his destructive onslaught. From there we get taken back and forth through time, witnessing the induction of new "Wreckers", the reappearance by a very influential human from the Autobots past, a Decepticon manhunt and ending with an "explosive" finale that will have you second guessing.

Story: Written by Nick Roche and James Roberts, with the script being done by Nick Roche as well, Last Stand of the Wreckers is a serious, comedic and sometimes dark comedic treat that is sure to please. From the showmanship and brass rule of fan favorite Decepticon Overlord to the servo busting between the Wreckers, the story flows very well despite the time displacement that occurs throughout the comic. The story and mood of Last Stand is a stark contrast to the serious nature of Transformers Ongoing, offering light and dark humor amidst well timed action. Seeming to take page from Transformers Animated at one point and even throwing a Star Trek joke in there, Last Stand is setting itself up to be an instant classic.

Official Review of TRANSFORMERS: Last Stand of the Wreckers #1

Art: Aside from writing and scripting, Nick Roche also took on penciling and inking duties for Last Stand. G1 fans will be pleased to see that, like the story, Nick took the book in a more traditional direction, giving us familiar faces and throwing a couple obscure ones in there for good measure. Nick also made sure that the art fit the scenario, giving us some great comedic facial expressions, one ala Blitzwing from TF Animated (along with some chin-tastic hints), and hard, edgy battle scenes that capture the horror of battle well. Hardcore fans and casual readers alike will definitaly enjoy the visuals provided. The colors on the panels are very well balanced and background imaging is present on most pages, giving you the feeling of being there rather than just Bots and Cons standing in emptiness.

One of the most pleasing things about the book is the way Nick did the namedropping within the script, negating the need for "nametags" like we've seen in Ongoing. If you are a casual reader that only picks up a book every so often, you'll be fine reading Last Stand. The book even includes a More Than Meets The Eye type profile in the back for one of the "new" Wreckers, giving you more background on the seldom seen bots.

Overall this book delivers on all levels. It was fun to read, great to look at and is shaping up to be a great addition to the Transformers Universe. If you haven't gotten the book, I highly recommend that you do. Last Stand starts with a bang, ends with a bigger bang and will keep you on your toes to the last panel.

Avid Canadian Transformers collector Pascal has gotten his hands on a trio of Revenge of the Fallen figures that have yet to be released - Scout Skystalker, Deluxe Lockdown and Deluxe Ratchet. Take a look at some of his well thought out insight about each figure below...


Scout Skystalker
Pros:
-Combines with Mindwipe (nothing fancy, just pegs on top of him in jet mode)
-Well integrated hand weapons (part of the underside of the wings and the wings themselves). Can be hand held or clipped to the forearms

Cons:
-No rear landing gears
-Visible head in jet mode

Deluxe Ratchet
Pros:
-Cool weapon gimmick in robot mode: as you insert the weapon's post into the forearm, two little grey parts deploy automatically
-Good range of articulation

Cons:
-Too much junk hanging off the underside of the vehicle (barely clears the ground and visible from the sides and the rear)
-Hip kibble gets a bit in the way (but can be moved)

Deluxe Lockdown
Pros:
-Fantastic nod to Animated Lockdown, only movie-fied
-Transformation that is at the same time somewhat similar yet different to Animated Lockdown's

Cons:
-Rubber parts (right hand weapon, left hand, wheel spikes)
-Car mode doesn't really look like it belongs to the movie universe

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.



Altogether, baltmatrix shows that Barricade is a worthy addition to the Human Alliance series. If you're interested in getting Barricade before Christmas, then you can order it with Human Alliance Sideswipe. Keep in mind BBTS's shipping schedule.

Transformers Encore 19 - Big Mission 3 Review

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.

Transformers Encore 19 - Big Mission 3 Review

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!


Transformers Encore 19 - Big Mission 3 Review

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.
