Transformers: Robots In My House

Hours after running this morning's review of Transformers: War for Cybertron, a package showed up on my doorstep featuring the toy versions of two of the game's Autobot stars.

I've been actively seeking these two figures out for a couple of weeks now, just in case they slipped out into stores early. I've been collecting Transformers for years, though once the movies came out my habit slowed considerably, generally limited to small run items and convention exclusives, like last year's Soundwave at the San Diego Comic Con.

With only two figures in the series, Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, the War for Cybertron toys seemed like a good line to hunt for.

And then Activision stole all my fun. Thanks, Activision.

Still, they're here, and no Transformer in my possession stays in its packaging for long. Anyone fancy a comprehensive review?


    a review would be great; would help me decide whether they belong in my collection (G1/2, Beast Wars, Classics) or not (Bayformers)

      The editor claimed that war for cybertron is the fucking catalina winemixer of transformers games. I want on optimus prime. word

      review from gametrailers

      also ign gave it a 9 lots of ppl gave it 8-9

    Optimus Prime and Bumblebee have been in Big W for over a week now. I'm waiting for Megatron and Soundwave to come out.

    Good news Mike, there are two more War For Cybertron figures coming: Megatron and Soundwave.

    Pics here:

    I have the Game, and I like the designs except for the tanks. They just don't look quite right.

    The Cars, Trucks and Jets on the other hand all look good. I especially like the way cars hover, Delorian style but when you boost, they drop to their wheels and haul arse on tires.

    I picked both of these up from Big W last week and love them.

    Pros: robot/alt forms, they look great no matter what form. Prime's truck is pimping, BB's car is cute and sleek. Looks like a Tron lightcar.

    Cons: Quality control issues. My prime's left foot had a tiny hole due to melting or the plastic mould wasn't filled completely (not a break) while BB's alt mode is far too tight. It just doesn't fit perfectly and there are large visible seems.
