Toy News: Official photos of 7 inch "Authentics" figures

Last month photos of 4.5 inch scale "Authentics" figures were released on Amazon. These figures appear to be lower priced figures that are aimed at younger kids and appear to be aimed at discount stores like Family Dollar or Dollar General. The initial line up featured Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Megatron and Starscream. Now a different size class of these figures has been revealed via Hasbro's web site: 7 inch figures! These are not only larger, but appear to feature more articulation than their 4.5 inch counterparts.

Toy Review: "Generation 2" Unreleased Go-Bot "Black Viper"

In the latter days of Generation 2, a set of Go-Bots figures were planned but never released in their original forms. One of these eventually came out as Spychanger Side Burn and Jazz, but today I bring you a look at its original release "Black Viper"!

Toy Review: "Power of the Primes" Voyager Class Grimlock

Grimlock is the powerful leader of the Dinobots. At his core he is believes in defending the innocent and Autobot ideals, but his methods sometimes shock his fellow Autobots! Check out my review of "Power of the Primes" Grimlock!

Toy Review: "Robots in Disguise" (2015) Crash Combiner Shocknado

Shockdrive and Warnado are enough trouble for the Autobots individually, but when they crash combine they form the powerful Shocknado who uses his electricity based powers to fry his enemy's circuits! Start your day off with a look at my review of "Robots in Disguise" Shocknado!

Rumor: Possible artwork for "Power of the Primes" Blast-Off released online

A while back it was rumored that an upcoming wave of "Power of the Primes" Deluxes would include Blast-Off. Fans may recall that during "Combiner Wars", Blast-Off was a redeco of Quickslinger (aka Slingshot). Meanwhile in Japan, Takara Tomy created a new figure based on G1 Blast-Off who transformed into a space shuttle.

Honorable, brave and valiant, Silverbolt embodies a lot of the ideals of the Maximals. Unfortunately he is sometimes a bit too trusting and naive which can lead him into a world of trouble! Today I have restored my review of "Beast Wars" Silverbolt complete with new commentary and photos!
