Toy Review: "Authentics" Starscream

Treacherous and powerful, Starscream has unlimited ambition but it is often betrayed by his own lack of self control. I finish up my review of the 4.5 inch "Authentics" with a review and gallery of "Authentics" Starscream!

Toy News: Takara Tomy "Power of the Primes" Stock Photos including Inferno

Amazon Japan has posted several listings for "Power of the Primes" figures along with official stock photos! The Japanese "Power of the Primes" releases are supposed to be the same as the "Generations" releases so these photos give us a good idea of what the figures will look like when released as part of "Generations". Some of these products are either already out or have been seen before, but these shots give us a detailed look at Novastar and Inferno, both of which have not yet been released! These figures are all due in Japan on October 31, 2018.
