Toy Review: "Power of the Primes" Outback

Outback is not one to follow the easiest path. He is stubborn and will often argue that his way is the right way! Deep down inside he sees himself as another potential casualty of the eons long Autobot/Decepticon war but that does not hamper his dedication as an Autobot warrior. Check out my review and gallery of Legends Class Outback from "Power of the Primes"!

Toy News: "Titans Return" Repugnus listed on Amazon

In 2016 Hasbro released an updated version of the G1 Monsterbot Doublecross as "Twinferno" in "Titans Return". Then a year later they released both a Titan Master Repugnus and a Deluxe Class Grotusque. This seemed to round out the three G1 Monsterbot homages, but many fans were left unsatisfied by Repugnus seemingly being erm...shortchanged by only having a small figure (pictured left with his G1 counterpart).
