Toy News: Takara Tomy releases new photos of "Legends" Godbomber

Takara Tomy has released two new photos of the upcoming "Legends" Godbomber figure via their Twitter feed. The "Legends" line (the Japanese equivalent of "Generations") has long devoted itself to updated versions of classic characters, but Godbomber may be one of the less widely known characters. Originally introduced in "Masterforce", this character transformed into armor and a trailer for Ginrai. While not shown combined in these photos, it is assumed Godbomber will be able to combine with "Legends" Ginrai.

Toy Review: "Generations" Titans Return Decepticon Quake & Chasm

Decepticon Quake is not big on fancy things like "strategy" or "planning" when it comes to battle. He prefers to wade into battle, weapons blazing until everyone has fallen! Check out my review of Decepticon Quake with Chasm!

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!

Toy Review: "Generations" Titans Return Quickswitch

Quickswitch is able to transform rapidly between six different forms, giving him an edge in battle matched only by a handful of other Transformers. This ability also represents his tendency to switch moods unexpectedly! Check out my review of Quickswitch from the "Chaos on Velocitron" set.
