Toy News: "Power of the Primes" Volcanicus grey model photos

During HasCon 2017, VIP fans were allowed to spend time inside a specially designated "VIP lounge". In this area VIP fans could interact with guests including members of the Hasbro Transformers team. I was fortunate enough to be at the VIP lounge when John Warden from the Transformers team revealed the combined grey model for Volcanicus! I put these photos up on social media previously but they are now on BWTF for all to see. Some fun facts:

  • Volcanicus' head sculpt is a callback to the head of Mega Dinobot, the Energon combiner formed from Grimlock and Swoop.

Toy Reviews: "Generations" Cyber Battalion & Commander Review Roundup

With the Walgreens release of the Cyber Battalion figures gathering momentum, many fans have asked "Are these Legion Class? Deluxe Class?". Given how relatively rare these figures have been until now this is understandable. Well, wonder no more! Before the release of this line at Walgreens BWTF reviewed the Cyber Battalion figures (minus the newest releases Jetfire and Prowl) and the larger Cyber Commanders. Check out my reviews linked below:

Last week "Generations" Cyber Battalion figures began to appear at Walgreens in the United States. These figures were previously only available in select countries outside the U.S., so Walgreens carrying these figures is a big deal for fans who want these figures, but do not want to pay premium prices for them.
