Toy Review: "Generations" Titans Return Triggerhappy with Blowpipe

Triggerhappy is a bit loopy to put it mildly. He is not a sharpshooter, but he loves to blast things on the battlefield (Autobots or otherwise). The best thing to do in battle is just point him in the general direction of the enemy and let him have fun! Today I bring you a look at "Titans Return" Triggerhappy with Blowpipe!

Movie News: New "The Last Knight" poster features a Knight from Cybertron

It seems to be a big day for "The Last Knight" news as another poster has been released for the film! This time out the poster features an unknown Knight from Cybertron on the battlefield with King Arthur's Knights. This ties into the "Secret Past" trailer posted earlier today and further pushes the narrative that the Transformers universe on Earth is about to get a lot bigger!

While the image has no character name attached to it, fan speculation indicates this might be Steelbane, who was shown at Toy Fair 2017!

Movie News: New "The Last Knight" clip from the MTV Movie Awards

Last night the MTV Movie Awards were held to much fanfare. "The Last Knight" star Mark Wahlberg brought a clip from "The Last Knight" to present ahead of its June premiere. The clip shows a quick cut of a scene where Cade Yeager (Wahlberg) meets Sir Edmund Burton (Anthony Hopkins). It also features the introduction of Hot Rod and Vivian Wembley (Laura Haddock). This was one of the scenes shown to fans at the IMAX event back in March though I noticed the cuts are much faster in this preview clip.

Art: Full images of "Titans Return" package art

One of the best parts of Transformers figures is the awesome packaging art featured on many of the boxes and cards going back to the original Generation One era. The "Generations" line has been fortunate to have great artwork throughout its history, however often that artwork is cut off to accomodate the needs of the packaging design. "Titans Return" is no exception to this but now thanks to the Hasbro Transformers Colombia site we now have full images of some of this artwork.
