Hasbro Transformers Generations Titans Return Sentinel Prime Action FigureMeet the old boss! Pummeled and dumped off by Megatron in the comics, Sentinel Prime is an Autobot leader that generally just doesn't have what it takes to lead the good guys in the way we're used to seeing. This time around, he gets a proper full-sized Voyager-class toy that shares tooling with Astrotrain, meaning (unsurprisingly) he's a shuttle, a train, or a robot. He's pretty good! He's also a lot lighter than previous toys.

Sentinel Prime's transformation is similar-but-different from Vector Prime many years ago. What's really interesting is that despite being the same height, there's about half as much mass in him. He's lighter - thanks to the lack of electronics and gimmicks - with fewer big moving parts too. Articulation is consistent with the last few rounds of Voyager-class toys, clocking in with about 17 points of articulation - 18 if you count the double-neck joint provided by the design. Not only does the removable head partner rotate, but there's an assembly where it plugs in that rotates as well - this is a significantly different range of motion than we're used to seeing, but it doesn't allow for the figure to look up or down or anything. Tanks to his unique transformation, he has ankle joints that allow for some more unique poses, but it's worth noting they aren't rocker ankles like some other figures. The range of motion certainly is on the happier side of what we got on Combiner Wars - which was still quite good - so you'll probably enjoy the bright orange warlord and his ability to blast things. Well, imaginary blasting, the figures no longer have spring-loaded weapons or anything like that.

The Titan Master gimmick means you have a little robot that becomes the head - and in this case, it's a tight fit. Too tight. I had to take a file to the neck socket after taking some pictures, and I might have to file it down some more because it really is just that tight. It's a great idea, but just be aware you may need to put in some effort to make it the best that it could be because it is seriously, sincerely, a very tight fit.

This 1.5-inch robot Titan Master Autobot Infinitus is a nifty one - and he looks a bit like Astrotrain. The figure has jointed hips, knees, shoulders, and a rotating head which comes in handy when serving as a head for a larger robot. He has no other accessories, but he makes a heck of a nice pilot for the vehicle modes. If you can get him off the neck socket, anyway. It's tiny, and it looks nifty.

The train mode is a lot like Energon Omega Supreme, in that it's long and has a ton of guns on it. Transformation is a snap - it really is easy - and you can plug the figure in the driver's seat and the guns on the sides. One of the side 5mm holes is a little loose, so you'll need to be careful with how you position the handguns in there. The wheels roll fairly well, but there's a wheel right smack dab in the middle that doesn't quite touch the ground. The detailing on the vehicle is pretty spectacular - you'll see tiny wheels, little doors, rivets, and windows depending on where you look. It's not really like any conventional train, but hey, it's a nice vehicle. Getting three modes out of a toy is tricky, so the effort is absolutely appreciated and it turned out fairly well.

The shuttle mode fares better, looking more than a bit like a space ship - almost like the Ark or even Vector Prime's vehicle mode in some respects. The bright orange with clear yellow pilot's seat reminds me of a 1980s toy, and you'll see a ridiculous amount of detailing on the vehicle if you get in close. Nothing is flat or underdecorated, although it might be hard to notice all of the work put into the toy thanks to the bright colors. They're quite striking. Unlike some of the other toys, there are no little pegs on which for figures to stand - you've got a pilot, or nothing. There are several places to mount 5mm guns though, and one of the included weapons does have a seat for a Titan Master figure if you so choose. Little landing skids can fold down in vehicle mode, but aside from that the only real interactivity of the vehicle mode (beyond transformation) is putting the pilot inside. I like it.

New "classic" characters are hard to find, but Hasbro has done a pretty good job integrating newness into "Generation 1" as Generations progresses. New-to-toy characters like Drift, Straxus/Darkmount, Windblade, and Victorion expand the line and its life by giving us new stories and new takes on old ideas. Right now, we don't know exactly how Sentinel Prime will work out in the Titans Return comic book crossover this year, but it seems he's likely the new bad guy and odds are you won't know that you would have wanted (and missed) this toy until it goes off the market. You might want to snag it early - it's a fun toy in its own right, and it's not like you aren't curious about how the whole Titans Return head gimmick works anyway.
