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…

Review: Transformers Titan Returns Leader Class Overlord

Hello Hero Club this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. Before anything else I can say that it is quite “frustrating” how Hasbro and Takara decided to design Overlord. It was a expected that Takara Tomy would make their version of the figure more accurate, however sadly it didn’t turn out to be the case. With that I can personally say that I enjoy Hasbro’s take on the figure much better. Although I don’t have Sky Shadow I can understand why many fans enjoy the mold and…

Review: Transformers Siege of Cybertron Week Finale Final Thoughts & Comparisons

Hello Hero-Club this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. To finish off Transformers Siege of Cybertron Week I will be comparing the various figures in this boxset along with showing my final thoughts. The overall set is 50/50 in my opinion since it includes some duds such as Thunderwing due to it only being a Titan Master and the lame Tidal Wave release. The other figures in the set in my opinion are pretty good, although it is a shame that in order to get all the…

Review: Transformers Siege of Cybertron Week Day 4 Magnus Prime

Hello Hero Club this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. The final figure in the Transformers Siege of Cybertron box set is none other than Magnus Prime aka Ginrai. From what I can tell this figure is pretty much a straight on repack of the Takara Legends release so it is nice to actually get an affordable Leader Class figure based on a Takara Tomy design. The legs are a bit wonky, although it seems at least on mine it doesn’t suffer from the loose joints…

Review: Transformers Siege of Cybertron Week Day 3 Tidal Wave

Hello Hero Club this Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. Moving on day three of Siege of Cybertron Week we will be taking a look at Tidal Wave. Out of all the figures in the set I personally feel this is the weakest especially since it doesn’t really work as an update to the character in my opinion. While the robot mode tries to look like Tidal Wave from Transformers Armada it just doesn’t click in my honest opinion especially since he is no longer composed of…

Review: Transformers Siege of Cybertron Week Day 2 Metalhawk

Hello Hero Club is this Darkon633 and continuing on with Siege of Cybertron Week we will now look at Metalhawk. It is quite interesting to see this character get an official release by Hasbro (outside of the Botcon release) especially since this character didn’t make into the original G1 Hasbro toyline. While the choice of using Triggerhappy mold makes sense it isn’t all that accurate, although it does at least work for the character. If you have the Triggerhappy mold then this figure will not have any new surprises. In…
