Fellow Seibertronian Ebonyleopard has already provided us images of the alt modes for the Chaos on Velocitron set and now not only does he have the robot modes, but he also has a written review for us, which you can find below. Allow me to spoil something first though, Quickswitch does not have the retooled helmet shown in the Hasbro renders. Instead his body is a straight up redeco of Sixshot.

Ebonyleopard wrote:Ok. So, Fastclash Aka Fastlane is incredibly simple to transform (though so was his G1 counterpart). BUT, there is transformation elements in him that do not get used in his conversion but is obviously built in for his clone brother, Cloudraker. So it's a definite we'll be getting one of him.

Rodimus Prime head is nice, the colors are much more muted than Hot Rod's with a slight Magenta like color on the crest of his forehead. The diecast is only in the face of the TM, not the whole TM.

Nautica is pretty much what you'd expect from a Blurr repaint. Same transformation, though her head definitely goes in nice and snug (was almost worried I was pushing too hard to get it in place. The connection hole was pretty tight). There is no given name for her TM, so I guess he's wholely Nautica.

Laser Prime is EXACTLY like the already release nor traditionally colored Prime coming out now. His head is much more light blue than I was expecting. I'd say, if you gotta get one, you might as well wait for this boxset to come out and just own it once as a Prime. G2 color scheme does look nice on him and while the stickers are decently added on, some seem to be just slightly big for the area they are covering (particularly on the chest) and of course, who wouldn't rather put the stickers on themselves if something is going to have stickers?

Quickswitch is indeed his father's son. He's pretty much a straight recoloring of Sixshot with the only different thing being the TM face plate. He does indeed have the same helmet as Quickswitch. Easiest way to make them look dramatically different from one another is to not pull out the chest wings and just leave them inside their inner compartment. That being said though, his paint is well done. They've pretty much nailed the color scheme. Really the thing that would have made it stand out more would have been if they gave him different weapons (Render form folks, you got some work to do. New guns for Quickswitch, a gun for Fastclash, and a wrench for Nautica).

Overall, is the set worth $99? I think so. They're nice updates of their G1 (or in the case of Prime G2) counterparts, and while many are repaints, the paint jobs are decent enough to visually make them look different from their original mode brothers (or fathers).

Now to get another Hot Rod for the Rodimus Head (and maybe someone will make a trailer attachment for this Hotrod like they did in the past for the old Generations Rodimus). :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK:

Fellow Seibertronian Ebonyleopard, who found the Chaos on Velocitron set at Toysrus earlier today, is finally opening the box and giving us pictures as he goes along. Below you will see how the set is held in the box with a good look at all the 4 Titan Masters it comes with.

There are no cards but the inner poster, which is the same as the box art, has some tech specs on the back and we have a picture of that along with pics of all the alt modes. The titan Masrers have no names of their own. Also, as you can see, the Lazer Prime trailer is all stickered up, so not a tampo, unlike what fans were hoping.

Looks like street dates wont get in the way of the Navy! gcruz907, a member at TFW, found most of Transformers: The Last Knight Wave 1 at Navy Exchange in Norfolk, Virginia. The street date for these toys is April 24th and it was clearly not respected. Navy Exchange is a retail store run by the Navy for their people and they had the voyagers (Prime), deluxes (Barricade, Bumblebee and co), legions and turbo changers, according to other users who confirmed the finding. The leaders are not part of the first wave and are due to come out later, so they were not there.

As proof, all we have from gcruz907 is this picture of Voyager Optimus Prime. The hunt is on, may the odds be ever in your favour!

A Truck in a Funny Blue Hat
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
It’s battleground: Earth once more, as the uneasy peace between Optimus’ forces, the Junkions, and G.I. Joe collapses amidst betrayals and subterfuge. Will Optimus Prime and Pyra Magna be able to put aside their differences—or is war really the only way forward?

Transformers News: Review of IDW Optimus Prime #5
Still a better love story that Twilight


Story

The turbofox excrement hit the ventilator last issue, as you might recall, with Sharkticons pouring out of the Junkion corkscrew ship by the thousands, Pyra and Optimus not entirely seeing eye to eye (and the complications, if you will, seen in the Ghost Stories annual), and the human side of the alliance still being the squishier part of the two - not ideal in most combat situations.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Optimus Prime #5
Shut up Spike


For an issue that is very, very much tense and building up to a potentially even bigger rupture point, John Barber manages to work in a lot - and I mean a lot - of humour: quips, side comments, snide comments, jokes, tension being maaaybe defused by the likes of Wreck-Gar, Cosmos, the captions, even Aileron and some early snark from flashback cameos. Prowl is undoubtedly not amused.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Optimus Prime #5
Prick-a-boo


The narrating voice this issue belongs to Arcee, whose story is still somewhat being developed, and we get to find out more about her attachment to Sideswipe, why she needs him to live, how she might do that, and how her skills will turn in handy in this new fight erupting just over Earth again. The tone, at times, feels a little discordant with the action taking place, I'll admit, but not entirely distracting.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Optimus Prime #5
Arcee you


A number of readers and followers of the story have commented on the ruthlessness of Optimus Prime as seen in the preview, and speculation is running high on why he might be behaving this way after all. There may be more to it in the flashback again, as it develops both his motivations (next to omnipresent Prowl) and, in a very nice parallel track, Soundwave's. More on this below!

Art

Kei Zama returns to the artwork after the one month fill-in, and we get to see even more of her Sharkticons in action, plus the dynamism of the various action sequences in the issue are brought out in their wider framing without losing any of the detail that her style focuses on. Plus her Optimus looks truly menacing, with the broken faceplate and warlord stances.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Optimus Prime #5
point in case


Staying as the staple connector between artists is technicolour wizzzard Josh Burcham, and I still really appreciate the contrasts between flashback and current time, plus the paler palettes used to counteract the heavier inking of Zama's style - Junkions and Sharkticons both continue to look excellent, and battles are even more vicious as a result.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Optimus Prime #5
goooore


Where I mention above that the Arcee caption monologue can be jarring, the result is definitely tuned down by the lettering, marking them out as separate, in effect, from the action in the panels they show up; the lettering choices by Tom B. Long make it easy to separate and follow equally. Cover-wise, we have a full TF roster with week with some excellent Casey Coller/JP Bove, Andrew Griffith/Josh Perez and EJ Su pieces to accompany the main Zama/Burcham one. All can be seen in our database entry for the issue, here.

Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

What started out potentially a just-action-fight-scenes sequence, turned out to be a pretty excellent chapter rushing towards the finale in the next issue, and a highlight for many characters involved in the cast: Arcee gets her moments, though I expect more next time; Jetfire, Aileron, the Colonists get some nice time, Cosmos is thrown about and even Optimus himself has a decent block of character added to him.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Optimus Prime #5
babe


But it is Soundwave that absolutely shines here, and shows his true Decepticon ideological self - echoing some of the best revolutionary discourse, showing his actual political inclinations, deploying the skills that made his so valuable to the purple cause in what could've been a devastating new conflict - and resulting much scarier (if HECK YEAH) in the process. Suck it, Funny Truck.

Seibertronian Chuckdawg1999 has sent us his latest review for the Robots in Disguise one-step changers Sideswipe and Drift! Drift is another use of the butterfly transformation while Sideswipe is an all new mold. You'll find Chuck's thoughts below along with the review!

chuckdawg1999 wrote:While there's a large number of fans who just can't get behind the concept of simplified figures, the RID One Step changers make for interesting desk toys. Drift is done in the butterfly opening style which if I'm honest, has been way overused. Sideswipe, features a fantastic new transformation that I hope to see more of in the future.

New Characters

When your bots are becoming battle-worn, you can rely on Medics to step in and keep them on their feet.  Prepare to make some room in your teams for new bots First Aidand Reflector.

First Aid (Medic)
Highly empathic, First Aid really feels for those he treats, and so works tirelessly to repair the seemingly endless damage caused by war.  That laudable character trait makes First Aid slightly reticent in battle, but he knows that in the end if the Autobots don't fight - and win - the hurting will never stop for anyone, and so he struggles on.

Deploy Medibots - Deploy two Medibots, each with an ability to shield friendly bots blocking 40/45% of incoming damage.

 


Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Big Bang
Reflector (Medic)Three bots (Viewfinder, Spyglass and Spectro) in one, Reflector exists to observe, record and document - in other words, spy on people.  He (they) love to find fault in others, and learn their weaknesses, so that he (they) can later exploit that shortcoming.
That said, in a crunch, six hands are better than one.

Reflector Team Up! - Summon Spectro and Spyglass, each with an ability to shield friendly bots blocking 40/45% of incoming damage.
