Energon Grimlock by Firestorm

Rated: G •
Summary: Review of the toy.

Afterburner (Superion torso) by Dirge

Rated: G •
Summary: 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.

Air Rider (Treadshot) by Dirge

Rated: G • star
Summary: 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.

Arcee by Dirge

Rated: G • starstarstarstarstar
Summary: 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

Autobot High School Reunion by KristalShaga

Rated: G •
Summary: Ironhide and Hotshot decide to go back to their Cybertronian High school reunion. Kicker and Meisha come along too and the three discover that Ironhide's had a troubled past in his school years.

Bad Kicker! by KristalShaga

Rated: G • starstarstarstarhalf-star
Summary: Ironhide and Kicker story! What happens when you leave a rookie in charge of a human teenager for the night? A LOT of stuff can happen, that's what.

Blast Off (Blackout) by Dirge

Rated: G •
Summary: 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.

Bonecrusher by Dirge

Rated: G •
Summary: A solid payloader mode and a very good robot mode, Bonecrusher has good colours and a nifty transformation.

Bootleg DVD Review - The Battle of Energon by Firestorm

Rated: G • starstarstarstar
Summary: Review of a bootleg DVD containing TF: Energon episodes.

Brawl (Kickback) by Dirge

Rated: G •
Summary: 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.

Bruticus by Dirge

Rated: G •
Summary: 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.

Building a Bond by KristalShaga

Rated: G • starstarstarhalf-star
Summary: Kicker and Optimus get angry with each other and Kicker ends up getting sent to the past on Cybertron by Jetfire's newly built time-machine. He then sees Optimus and the others as toddlers, and tries to dodge Starscream's older cousi, Steel Lock, a scient

Bulkhead by Dirge

Rated: G •
Summary: 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

Checkpoint and Prowl by Dirge

Rated: G •
Summary: 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.

Command Ravage by Dirge

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

Command Ravage by Firestorm

Rated: G • starstarstarstarstar
Summary: Review of the Energon Terrorcon figure.

Constructicon Maximus by Dirge

Rated: G •
Summary: 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.

Cruellock by Dirge

Rated: G •
Summary: 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

Divebomb by Dirge

Rated: G •
Summary: A good homage to the G1 character, Divebomb has two good modes, nice weaponry and great play value.

Doctor Ironhide by KristalShaga

Rated: G •
Summary: Kicker gets sick with the chicken pox and Ironhide's left to watch him at the base...Yeah things will get crazy.

Doomlock by Dirge

Rated: G •
Summary: As recolours go Doomlock is a great toy - the colours are great and significantly different from those of the previous toy and he has oodles of play value for a basic.

Downshift by Dirge

Rated: G •
Summary: 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

Dreadwing by Dirge

Rated: G •
Summary: 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.

Dreamwave Pockets: Transformers Energon vol. 1 by Firestorm

Rated: G •
Summary: Review of the graphic novel.

Duststorm by Dirge

Rated: G •
Summary: 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
