Toy Review: "Robots in Disguise" (2015) Warrior Class Blastwave

When it comes to weaponry, Blastwave is the 'bot the Autobots turn to. If something needs to be blown up he has his dual barreled cannon. If the battle gets up close, he can slice Decepticons with his ultra sharp sword! Today I bring you a look at Warrior Class Blastwave!

Toy News: Toy Fair Australia reveals "Titans Return" Slugslinger & Misfire

Fellow fan Griffin recently attended Toy Fair 2017 in Australia and visited Hasbro's Transformers booth. The display focused on "Generations" and "Robots in Disguise" with two surprise reveals: Titans Return Slugslinger and Misfire! It has been speculated for a while that we would see these figures thanks to Triggerhappy's presence in the line but this is the first visual confirmation we have seen. I have mirrored a few of the photos here (including some G1 figures offering a side by side look with their modern counterparts).

DVD News: Shout! Factory to reissue complete the G1 Japanese series

In 1987 the American version of the Transformers cartoon stopped producing new animated episodes of the original "Generation One" series which left man fans without new entertainment to go along with their toys. However in Japan the adventure continued with three full animated series: Headmasters, Masterforce and Victory. About six years ago, fan dreams came true when these shows were put out by Shout! Factory in a complete boxed set (they were also available as individual shows).
