Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade, we found more stock images of Encore God Fire Convoy on Amazon Japan. These give us our first look at God Magnus' robot mode for this reissue as well as clearer images than before.

There are several changes from the original release like the addition of circles at the base of the small robot's pectorals. Powered Convoy lists more differences found when comparing to the original releases of both the robots and the sword.

Powered Convoy wrote:- It seems all the chrome short of the Autobot symbols, rims, and antenna is no longer chrome.

= Fire Convoy has C-001 on his front bumper .

- The most obvious change is the coloration of the Super God Sword. It's no longer solid blue with a blue sticker but clear gray / purple with a silver sticker. This is animation accurate.

Thanks again to site sponsor TFSource, we have further confirmation and official images of the new Star Wars Crossover series (topical, given the hype building for the latest instalment of the new trilogy of movies right now), with the Tie Advanced X1 we previously reported on as the first figure of the line. According to the site, the Darth Vader converting figure also includes five mini Stormtrooper figures, and potentially the dark father himself, along with a lightsaber (unclear as to what size). Check out the images below!

This new line from Takara features famous star wars vehicles that transform to Star Wars figures! The first figure is Tie Advanced X1, a prototype version of the tie fighter that transforms into Darth Vader! Includes 5 mini stormtrooper figures, and presumed to include a mini darth vader figure as well as a lightsaber.

Well here's something out of left field. The Combiner Wars G2 Menasor box set has been spotted at Target, at full-price, no less. This is quite odd, as the set originally only saw release at online retail in 2015, and showed up in discount chains like TJMaxx and Marshalls last year, skipping big-box retailer physical locations entirely. Not only that, but this comes more than two years after the set was released. Fellow Seibertronian Cprime18 spotted the big fella at a Target in San Antonio, Texas, and below is photo proof. Has anyone else spotted and anomalous releases like this? Please let us know! And while you're at it, you can check out Seibertron's own G2 Menasor gallery right here!

Ghosts, Machines, and That Joe Guy
A review of IDW Publishing's Revolutionaries #8, and a look back at the series


Just barely over a year after the initial Revolution issues hit stands, and several months after its originally intended release date, the final issue of Revolutionaries came out almost two weeks ago. As we were not supplied with a review sample from IDW Publishing, this review is quite late. Couple this with yours truly suffering from post-TFcon exhaustion and, well, sorry about the tardiness. How is this issue, and how well does it wrap up this series? Read on to learn more.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Revolutionaries #8 and a Series Recap
Remember, Titan Class Predaking next year!

Story

A book that started out being primarily about Kup and his human buddy Action Man has changed, with most of the plot from issue 5 and onward being directed toward the history of the Adventure Team (in-fiction, a predecessor to G.I. Joe; in reality, paying homage to some of the original Joe action figures hailing from the days before "A Real American Hero".) The narrative doesn't leave Kup and Ian by the wayside by any means, with their adventure still being the crux of the plot, but it definitely shares the focus in a big way as it has for the past several issues. Threads from the earlier (and too short) Action Man series aren't left aside either, which is a pleasing turn for myself and the three other fans of that book.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Revolutionaries #8 and a Series Recap
Most of Action Man's cast shows up! Mostly.

Of course, given the fictional roster of the Adventure Team in this series, by this eighth installment we've not had focus on its leader: "G.I." Joe Colton, the plot armored, narrative-charisma-sucking, walking Optimus Prime foil. While it's great to see John Barber playing with this universe's continuity in a masterful way that other series in this "Hasbroverse" haven't been able to live up to, Colton has the same detrimental effect on Revolutionaries as he does over in First Strike. In particular, I mean to say that this character takes away all the stakes. With the fakeout death he was handed in Revolution #1, coupled with the unfathomable good luck/timing/circumstances he keeps encountering in First Strike, prepare to have all tension zapped away once he enters the scene.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Revolutionaries #8 and a Series Recap
:yawn:

This is thankfully where the drawbacks come to a close. The cheeky, self-aware, over the top, borderline cheesy/campy nature of the book continues here, lending a charm that manages to overcome the more flattened Total Brand Awareness characters like Colton. From Skywarp's wisecracks, to Blackrock seeing insane unimaginable events occur that he laughs off with a smile, the potential of the Hasbro universe is realized to a pretty great extent on many of the panels within.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Revolutionaries #8 and a Series Recap
Remember Infraspace? No one will blame you if not.

Art

The line art duties are handled by series regulars Ron Joseph and Fico Ossio, and if you've read other issues of Revolutionaries you'll know precisely what to expect here. Though it must be said that just like many other artists more adept at drawing humans, as Ossio in particular shows, sometimes it just takes some time and practice to get drawing Transformers down. I do find myself agreeing with fellow site Administrator Dr. Va'al, in that the shifting artists throughout the course of the issue does take the edge off of some scenes.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Revolutionaries #8 and a Series Recap
Placing at least this issue after the entire nine-issue G.I. Joe run.

That said, the colors of David Garcia Cruz and Sebastian Cheng do help lend some consistency. Particular call-out is in store for the wonderful way in which these teams have found their voice through the techno-organic hybrid characters like Storm Shadow, Krieger, and Blackrock. Were it not for the incredible Guido Guidi Beast Wars pages (earlier in the series, not in this issue) I might be clamoring to see some of their takes on our favorite Maximals and Predacons!

As always, you can find full art credits and cover images in the Vector Sigma Database, just be wary of the spoiler filled character list!

Verdict

Transformers News: Review of IDW Revolutionaries #8 and a Series Recap
Right book, wrong time?

I have to admit that there's a part of me that goes easy on Revolutionaries from a critical perspective. It's not perfect, its surprises have been given away at every turn by publication delays, and there just don't seem to be many fans of the series. Despite starting from a disadvantage, this eighth issue is on par with the rest in its ability to just have fun and is both a fitting conclusion and a great, though sorely preempted, lead-in to the still ongoing First Strike.

For Revolutionaries #8:
. :HASBRO: :HASBRO: :HASBRO: :HASBRO: out of :HASBRO: :HASBRO: :HASBRO: :HASBRO: :HASBRO:


That wrap up may have seemed short, but this was intentional. We're not quite done here yet!

A Look Back on Revolutionaries

To say that IDW Publishing's creation of a shared universe of Hasbro properties has been less than well received by fans would be a monolithic understatement. My local shop's subscriptions are down for both Transformers and Joe, and things are worse for the Hasbroverse books with yours truly being the one and only Rom subscriber left in this pocket of Raleigh - they don't even buy extras for the shelf these days. Even our own site's owner has given up on Transformers comics for the first time in over 30 years. I was reminded recently by fellow podcaster Counterpunch that this shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. After all, Transformers fans went berserk and swore off IDW in late 2011 when they had the audacity to split the story into an entire two ongoings. It was only the quality of the stories that came after that made that whole ordeal, well, pretty forgotten.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Revolutionaries #8 and a Series Recap
How much do these things cost to make? Because I kind of want to fund a whole series of this.

You may be wondering how this is relevant to Revolutionaries. You see, of all the Hasbro Universe tie-ins, this series replaces Micronauts for me as the "one that I would recommend to Transformers fans" when looking at the post-Revolution material. It features characters from other properties, yes, but the core cast was established in John Barber's Robots in Disguise/Transformers run, with Action Man serving as a really fun "plus one" - not to diminish his role, but maybe it'll help some potential readers get over the G.I. Joe hurdle they feel has been placed in front of them.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Revolutionaries #8 and a Series Recap
Space Colton! That's not a compliment.

The first issue, and maybe even the first half of this series won't ameliorate much if your default position is that these comics have gone too far, there are too many properties, and there are too many series to buy and keep track of. The first four issues' story arc does its job, which at that point was to (from my perspective) keep up the hard sell of this Hasbro Universe of monthly comics. The first trade is available now, and if you pick it up you may be wondering why, in hindsight, I recommend this title. It's really down to this second half, as I feel it's going to be looked back at as a pretty special thing despite a few critical flaws.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Revolutionaries #8 and a Series Recap
They do, Mr. McCarthy, they do. They even referenced your story.

The continuity weaving that happens is outstanding in the entire run, but notably in the second half of Revolutionaries, you get all of the following and more: closure of a minor but conspicuous character absence in Spotlight: Soundwave; actual tie-ins to All Hail Megatron; references to Spotlight: Doubledealer; more closure on Kup's "Dead Universe" story; and even a de facto retcon of Hearts of Steel and Infestation 2 into the shared Hasbro Universe. This doesn't even touch on the huge amount of material pulled from earlier IDW G.I. Joe stories, which I don't have any real idea of but the later pages of Revolutionaries #8 go through several Easter Eggs related to those books. We've jokingly nicknamed the author John "Continuity" Barber, but in this series you may come to realize he's no-joking, scary good at this world-building concept.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Revolutionaries #8 and a Series Recap
To your left: Smarts, a good friend.

And then there's Revolutionaries #6, and you can find my review at this link. This might have had the fewest Transformers related panels and pages in the entire run, but is such a touching while simultaneously heartwrenching story that it really elevated the legitimacy of the second half as a good story that exceeded what should have been bounds made of Brand Building and Multi-Channel Cross-Vertical Storytelling Synergy. When the second trade comes out, it might be worth it just for this alone.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Revolutionaries #8 and a Series Recap
Well, maybe after First Strike?

And with that, it's time to wrap things up on this longer than normal review. While I'm sure any endorsement of these books will ring hollow to many readers of this site, for those of you not stomping your feet with your hands over your ears refusing to check out any IDW books right now, pay attention. You should give some of this series a chance, and also know that even if you just go and pick this one (or parts of it) up it doesn't mean you have to suddenly grab five other books at the same time. This will have you more than prepared for First Strike, if you want, and quite honestly will save you some time you don't need to spend as a "Transformers-only" or "Transformers-first" reader on other Hasbro Universe titles.

For Revolutionaries, the series:

Around 10 days ago or so, Amazon.com had a listing for Robots in Disguise: Combiner Force Team Combiner Galvatronus for the retail price of $29.99. That listing has since gone away, but yours truly was able to get a hold of one of the figures before the price skyrocketed, and with the figure now in hand, I would like to tell you all how the team combiners truly are an underrated gem in Transformers.

We will start with the individual robots first, before getting to the combined mode at the end. Up first, the arm bots and the female fliers of the group: Cyberwarp (yellow) and Skyjack (green). These 2 figures are interesting because they are very different from the Ultra Bee and Menasor arm limbs, which all use the exact same skeleton but with different parts. These 2 ladies actually roll up into their jet modes, and in robot mode they have a rake-ish jet nose behind their heads. The coloring is nice on them, even if there isn't much in the way of paint. The robot modes are alright, better than the other arm bots, and the jet modes are pretty cool as well.

Next up are the leg bots, the big bruisers Riotgear (red) and Treadshock (green). These molds transform the exact same as the Menasor leg bots, but they are a lot bigger and I really like the vehicle modes. These things are big wheeled bulky bruisers, and they remind me some of Bulkhead. I really enjoy them both, and I really with the Menasor legs were this size. Menasor would looks so much better with the bigger legs.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review for Transformers: Robots in Disguise Combiner Force Galvatronus

Up next is the torso bot, Cyclonus. Continuing his new combiner abilities, first granted by Combiner Wars Cyclonus/Galvatronus, this Cyclonus is a great torso bot, probably the most convincing of the 3 torso bots. The jet mode is pretty sleek, and the purple is rich and a really nice plastic color. Robot mode is pretty good too, though he continues the Motormaster trend of not having actual hands, and his robot mode head is a bit low in this mode. Overall though, he really isn't that bad, quite a decent, spiky bot with an interesting transformation.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review for Transformers: Robots in Disguise Combiner Force Galvatronus

Here we have Cyclonus with his team. I think they look pretty good together, and it's kind of cool to see a Hasbro combining Cyclonus finally get a team, since only the Takara Unite Warriors line had given him a team so far. These were some good choices, and overall I think this is the best of the 3 in terms of individual team members.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review for Transformers: Robots in Disguise Combiner Force Galvatronus

Transformers News: Pictorial Review for Transformers: Robots in Disguise Combiner Force Galvatronus

And now we finally get to the combined mode, which is a pretty sweet looking thing. Cyclonus has his shoulders swivel up and a new super Cyclonus head slams down over top of his regular head. I really like the legs on the combined form, and they are definitely my favorite of the line. The arms are cool looking, but the hands are a bit of an issue. They are really nice and spiky, but when he holds his gun, he can't really close his hands, so it looks weird for him to hold his weapon.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review for Transformers: Robots in Disguise Combiner Force Galvatronus

Speaking of the gun, here it is. It is a pretty decent mold, and he stands out as the other 2 combiners only have swords, so it's the only ranged weapon given to a combiner in the line. It can be held in robot mode and stores on top of Cyclonus in jet mode. It can peg into that same slot for jet mode in combined mode on Galvatronus' back, but mine will not stay.

Finally, here we have Galvatronus with Menasor and Ultra Bee. Check them all out together!

Transformers News: Pictorial Review for Transformers: Robots in Disguise Combiner Force Galvatronus

Transformers News: Pictorial Review for Transformers: Robots in Disguise Combiner Force Galvatronus

In summary, the Combiner Force subline really has been an underrated line. The crash combiners have been really fun, and the team combiners are pretty great too. All 3 definitely have something new and interesting to offer, and for smaller $30 combiners that aren't that complex and can't pose much but still transform, don't have leaning or stability issues. and can be combined and decombined quickly, they are pretty good.

Overall, Galvatronus to me is the more creative in terms of individual team members, while Menasor has the best overall combined mode and combined mode head and Ultra Bee is personally the coolest of the 3. They are all good figures, and between them cost less than a regular Combiner Wars combiner. they also gave us our first and second ever 5 bot combiners (Drift as a sword in the show counts!) that have both male and female transformers in them, which is pretty neat!

Final conclusion: pick up at least one of these guys. They are worth it, and they are lots of fun.

Pictorial and Video Review for Transformers Titans Return Grotusque with Fengul and Scorponok

As many of you remember, last Thursday, Hasbro dropped a surprise bombshell on us with the revealing of a Titans Return Grotusque complete with Titan Master Fengul and Scorponok, rounding out the Monsterbot trio and the quadruplet of diecast Titan Masters. Yours truly was able to get a hold one of these figures, and I would now like to tell you why Grotusque is one of the best deluxes of Titans Return and why Scorponok is fun too.

For the official Seibertron galleries, you can check out the reveal gallery and the display gallery. You can also view G1 Grotusque for comparisons to his original form.

We will start with the bot mode, and I apologize now for the lighting of the images.

Bot mode is gorgeous, and very well painted. The bot mode is fun to look at, with the puffed out chest area complete with the beast mode lower jaw area proudly standing front and center. The colors are really loud and great on this figure, with the shoulders getting some surprisingly good attention to detail. He even has that little triangle dead center of his chest.

Transformers News: Pictorial and Video Review for Transformers Titans Return Grotusque with Fengul and Scorponok

The head sculpt is pretty good, though I wish it was a little closer to the G1 toy's flirty/pouting face, but it is still nice regardless. He still does look grumpy though!

Transformers News: Pictorial and Video Review for Transformers Titans Return Grotusque with Fengul and Scorponok

Now this mold is a retool of Titans Return Twinferno, his fellow deluxe Monsterbot. The retool is very obvious in the lower part of the body, with everything from the waist down being the same as Twinferno, just in new colors. The wings are also the same, as are the guns. The arms, head, and upper chest area, however, are new, and it really helps him stand out from his Monster-mate. The Titan Master's body is also the same, though the head is new (to be seen later).

Now up first for comparisons, here we have the Monsterbot trio together at last! While it is a bummer that Repugnus is not a deluxe as well, he still looks cool enough, and you can always play musical chairs with the heads!

Transformation on the lower body is the same as Twinferno, but the upper body has some nice new tricks. The arms are pretty basic, rotating 180 degrees at the bicep and having some flip out beast claws, but the new beast head is where the transformation shines. the lower jaw folds out of the upper chest while the upper beast head flips up over from the back.

And the result is a pretty great beast mode! Now anyone who likes Monsterbots will remember: they are supposed to be ugly as sin, it's part of their thing. They are supposed to be ugly monsters that scare people, and this guy does it very well. His beast mode is great in it's ugliness, looking so good yet so bad all at the same time. A great beast mode, the mode where he really shines!

Transformers News: Pictorial and Video Review for Transformers Titans Return Grotusque with Fengul and Scorponok

Also of note, the beast head has tabs on the side for his guns. While they can store on his back like Twinferno, you can also mount them on the beast head. This is more for robot mode storage, but it's a really funny thing you can do in beast mode!

Transformers News: Pictorial and Video Review for Transformers Titans Return Grotusque with Fengul and Scorponok

Here we have the Monsterbots in beast mode, and all 3 shine together here. They are a perfect team, and I am really glad I got to complete the team.

Lastly, we'll take a brief look at Scorponok, who finally got his release, and Fengul! The robot mode for Scorponok is the same as Ultra Magnus and Thunderwing, and is once again diecast. It looks pretty nice, and I enjoy the colors. Fengul is based on Daburu, Twinferno's Titan Master, but with a new head based on a saber tooth tigers, which is yet another battle beast reference! The paint work on Fengul is really good too, the best of the line.

Below, you can check out Fengul, and then a comparison with the 3 Monsterbots and Scorponoks Titan Master robot modes.

And finally today, Scorponok in head mode. It's a nice head, yet feels a bit too small, like this was a head that really needed the voyager treatment with the things deploying on either side to beef it up. The Head looks really funny on Grotusque, but really works with Tidal Wave!

Transformers News: Pictorial and Video Review for Transformers Titans Return Grotusque with Fengul and Scorponok

In conclusion, this whole set is a great pickup. Grotusque is the best of the Monsterbots here, and is really one of the best deluxes of the whole line. I really enjoy this figure, everything about him is dumb, fun, ugly, beautiful, and he should be a figure people actively hunt down.

Scorponok is pretty cool too. While he is not my favorite Titan Master, he is still really cool, and will be a great addition to his larger generations toy when we finally get one.

While this set was only available for about an hour on HasbroToyShop last Thursday, it will be available again online soon, much like Arcee, so keep your optics tuned for all the latest Grotusque and Scorponok news here!
