Toy Review: "Generations" Titans Return Twinferno with Daburu

Twinferno's two heads in beast mode are not just for show, they actually have two separate personalities! Often time this Autobot can be heard arguing with himself. There is one thing both personalities agree on however: they love to trash Decepticons! Check out my review of "Titans Return" Twinferno with Daburu!

Game News: Star Saber arrives in "Transformers Earth Wars"

Transformers fans playing Space Ape's "Earth Wars" game were in for a treat tonight. If you duked it out alongside your Alliance, a prize offered in the current campaign is a crystal that unlocks the Autobot Star Saber! Seemingly based on his G1 persona, this version of the character also has a bit of IDW Publishing Ultra Magnus in him as he talks about lectures (which other Autobots find boring). The storyline also opens up a threat being set up by Deathsaurus! Check out the screenshots attached.

Toy Review: Titans Return Sergeant Kup with Flintlock

Sergeant Kup is one of the oldest, wisest Autobots around. He believes experience is the benchmark of maturity and never hesitates to offer up a story that he thinks will help in a situation. The Dinobots especially love Kup's war stories! Check out my special advance review of "Titans Return" Sergeant Kup with Flintlock!
