Toy Review: "KRE-O" Battle Changers Grimlock

Grimlock is just the right combination of dedication, stubborness and raw power to be one of the most potent warriors in the Autobot army. With his battle skill he also makes a great leader for the powerful Dinobots! Check out my first "Battle Changer" review: Grimlock!

Convention News: Botcon 2016 Exclusive #3 revealed: Ramhorn!

Following the reveals of Tarantulas and Ravage, the Official Botcon web site has announced its third exclusive: Ramhorn! No, not Blaster's cassette-bot, but rather one of the members of the Tripredacus Council! Based on the "Combiner Wars" Brawl sculpt (with a drill you see) this figure also sports a new head sculpt based on the character's appearance in the "Beast Wars" cartoon. Check out the description from the Botcon site below:

Toy News: "Unite Warriors" Galvatronus on the way?

TF Yuki is on a roll! While I was at New York Comic-Con he posted an outline that looks very much like Cyclonus' Galvatronus torso and head combined with Rook, a couple Aerialbots and a Stunticon. Could we be looking at all new characters? I hope so!

While Combiners have been getting a bulk of attention in the "Transformers" toy line, other lines are also delivering the goods news-wise. The awesome TF Yuki has posted an image of the upcoming Thundercracker figure from "Legends"! This color scheme is based on the G1 figure of course, but it also draws inspiration from Thundercracker's appearance in the "Armada" toy line! Check out the image in the embed below.
