Toy Review: "Timelines" Carzap with G.B. Blackrock

Among the many projects set up as part of the "G2" initiative on Earth are Transformers borne from the "Block Town" division. One of these is an enthusiastic young Autobot named Carzap. Optimistic and brilliant for an Autobot so young, Carzap is a formidable addition to the Autobot army! Check out my review of "Timelines" Carzap with G.B. Blackrock!

Toy Review: "Robots in Disguise" (2015) Warrior Class Sideswipe

Brash, reckless and overconfident, you'd think Sideswipe would not be an asset to Team Bumblebee but this Autobot is also brave, fast and skilled making him invaluable to their efforts to recapture escaped Decepticon criminals. Check out my review for Warrior Class Sideswipe!

Toy News: Air Attack Optimus Primal Platinum Edition revealed

Thanks to the folks over at Planet Iacon on Facebook we now have some unofficial photos of what appears to be an Optimus Prime themed release of Optimus Primal! This uses the Air Attack Optimus Primal sculpt from Beast Machines and gives it new colors. 2016 is the Year of the MOnkey, making this release even more appropriate. Even better? If these images are accurate, Primal's packaging shows that he needs batteries and has lights with sound, meaning his original electronics are intact!
