The worst of the new Aerialbots, although I wouldn't quite call this a bad toy. While I can partially excuse some of the weaknesses in the engineering, I'm not so forgiving about the robot mode colours and downright annoyed this toy has no weapon.

All that and a can of coke, Air Rider is one of the best basics in Energon to date. The colours, paint mask and sculpt are all great, the robot mode is very playable and the plane mode solid.

About bloody time. We've waited almost two decades for an Arcee toy, and this toy delivers fairly well as a G1 Arcee in a new configuration. As an Energon toy in her own right, Arcee is a very good basic, with nice colours, two solid modes and a kick-ass

Blast Off has a very good robot mode and a good chopper mode, but the colours aren't as nice as they could be - which is proven when you place him next to Vortex, who shares the mould.

Two fun modes, weaponry galore and colours that really work and make this toy a great homage. Even if you don't care for Bruticus, I'd recommend this toy.

While there are some minor flaws, Bruticus is a great Gestalt comprised of five very good components. The G1 tribute is readily apparent and all four components actually work as arms or legs.

A really good mega, and he's quite big for a mega. Of course, Bulkhead was sold as an ultra, thanks to the Afterburner Unit. It _really_ doesn't work in chopper mode, but does add to his robot mode. The gimmicks are a mixed bag - the transformation sounds

Two good deluxes make up this set, and while Checkpoint has more flaws he's the new character here. Prowl and Checkpoint go well together and the combined form, Powerlinx Prowl, is greater than the sum of his parts.

Nice colours and details make a great beast mode, but a simple transformation takes its toll on a disappointing robot mode.

Not quite as cool as Superlink Bruticus but still a pretty good gestalt in his own right. Worthwhile as a set despite some weak components.

The beast mode is designed to be a Godzilla homage, which brings some unusual design elements with it. The transformation is a little too cute for it's own good, since it introduces some problems, but it does result in a fun robot mode that's difficult to

A tribute to two G1 characters at once, yet this toy still has enough going for it in it's own right that I like it. The name doesn't fit the tribute, but Downshift is a good toy in his own right. His energon weapons are an asset and both his combined mod

Both modes are well designed with excellent play value and the electronics are a nice addition rather than a central gimmick that holds him back.

The Energon combiners are generally of a very high standard, but they really dropped the ball here. The colours are terrible, the hips hurt both modes and the robot mode is gimpy. If you're not getting the set, this is a toy I'd recommend against Duststor
