Toy Review: "Generations" Titans Return Alpha Trion & Sovereign

Sometimes called the "Father of the Autobots", Alpha Trion is an ancient and wise figure who represents some of the best elements of all the Autobots including bravery and self-sacrifice. While some dismiss him as a disorganized old 'bot, he holds knowledge many Transformers cannot conceive of! Check out my review of "Titans Return" Alpha Trion.

The "Tiny Turbo Changers" are small, blind packed figures that feature characters from the live action Transformers movie franchise. These tiny figures transform in one or two steps and there will be well over a dozen to collect in the first wave. Check out this brief demo from Toy Fair 2017!

Video: "Robots in Disguise" Combiner Force Menasor demo

in News, Prime, Robots in Disguise (2015)

"Robots in Disguise" enters a new phase this year with the introduction of "Combiner Force". Riffing off last year's "Combiner Wars" series, one of the new characters being introduced in "Robots in Disguise" is the Stunticon Combiner himself: Menasor! At Toy Fair 2017 I was given a partial demo of the figure's combination. While the entire figure was not functional, this video shows off one Stunticon being transformed from vehicle to robot and then to limb. Menasor will come as one boxed set and retail for $29.99 USD.
