Toy Review: Generations Skywarp

in Decepticon, Deluxe, Generation One, Generations, News, Seeker

Skywarp is a sneaky Decepticon who enjoys his fair share of pranks. His ability to teleport in an instant does nothing to temper this tendency, but Megatron tolerates his behavior since his abilities come in handy during combat! Take a look at my review of "Generations" Skywarp!

Generations Voyager Class Sandstorm Reviewed

in Autobot, Generation One, Generations, News, Triple Changer, Voyager

Sandstorm is a fun guy but he often takes unnecessary risks on the battlefield. With his Dune Buggy and VTOL modes, he generally keeps himself in one piece, but other Autobots are constantly worried about him. The one thing they have to admit though is he never backs down from a fight and relishes the opportunity to prove himself in combat! Check out my review of Voyager Class Sandstorm!
