Review: Transformers Titan Returns Deluxe Class Twin Twist

Hello Hero Club, this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. It is great to see that both Twin Twist and Topspin made in into the Generations line. Seeing as both characters are somewhat more obscure than even several of the Generation One characters it is awesome to see new updates for them. Twintwist isn’t too different compared to “his brother,” however the new tooled parts really help separate him from Topspin. In conclusion if you are fan of the Wreckers or the “Jumpstaters” than I highly…

Anyway, Kinsey Locke will be played by upcoming IT actress Megan Charpentier. For those who have no clue what Locke & Key is about. “Locke & Key revolves around…

Review: Transformers Robots in Disguise Warrior Class Windblade

Hello Hero Club, this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review.  Today we will be taking a look at Warrior Class Windblade from the Robots in Disguise 2016 toyline. In my opinion I think Robots in Disguise 2015 is one amazing show for only one major reason. It is great to see both Drift and Windblade jump out of their comics for the very first time in an animated production. I personally think that Windblade could be one of the best Transformers in the line since there…
