Thanks to Planet Iacon who's posted some new images of Transformers Generations Sky Linx comparison: G1 vs Combiner Wars version action figures. This set of images very cleverly matches up the the classic Generation 1 toy in similar modes to the new Combiner Wars Sky Lynx for a wonder view of old versus new! Read on to see the images below.
Fengshou Laoren has posted some additional photos, now with Sky Lynx in his combined state of Sky Reign - well, mostly. Sky Reign is intended to go with the second assortment of Autobot cars, but for now has to make do with the Optimus Maximus limbs for this demonstration. We get a look at how things come together on the combiner's back, plus the last couple photos show Sky Reign using aftermarket hands and feet for a bit more flexibility. Keep reading to check out the new pictures!
Hisashi Yuki has again taken to Twitter with a familiar-looking silhouette! Asking fans to please wait just a bit longer for the reveal whilst marking the change of the month, Yuki has updated the silhouette he posted previously with some flashy purple speedlines. With Optimus Maximus/Ultra Prime due to be released as an Energon/Super Link homage in Japan, it's a safe bet Galvatronus will become the equivalent Galvatron (or possibly Galvatron General.) Keep reading to see the image!
After so far being only able to see the toy in straight-on side or top-down shots, Fengshou Laoren on Weibo has posted pictures showing the upcoming Combiner Wars Sky Lynx from far more flattering directions. Seen now are nice looks at the shuttle and robot modes, and a shot of the underbody showing how the combiner body mass blends in to the rest of the toy. We've got the photos mirrored, so click through and take a look!
Hisashi Yuki has been a little lax in posting Transformers-related toy photos recently, but has made up for that with a great shot of UW-03 Defensor (or Guardian, if you prefer) preparing to engage the massively looming UW-04 Devastator. While Defensor had been set to ship out this weekend, its release was pushed back two weeks, resulting in both combiners coming out during December. Defensor is due 12/12, and Devastator is reportedly expected to go out Christmas Day, leaving both just around the corner! Keep reading for the full photo.
From the 78dm.net forum, user xccain has shared two photos of Generations Sky Lynx, due as part of 2016's second Voyager assortment. These images give side on views of both the regular robot-beast mode, and an attempt at fulfilling the Hasbro design team's hint that the lynx mode could also be coaxed out of the design. This result seems more like a griffin, but it's a start down the path until more people get a chance to figure out the alternate transformation. Click through to see the mirrored photos. Updated with more images!
Newsarama has posted the full length preview for next Wednesday's Transformers #48, featuring the improbable teamup of Buster and D.0.C, which may give us the answer to the ultimate question: Who will be written with more depth and personality, Marissa Faireborn, or Thundercracker's dog? Click through to check out the preview, and come back early next week when we bring you the first review of the issue!
Anselm Lin has posted several additional images of Legends Class Shockwave. In this new batch comes a photo of the back of the packaging showing in color the integration with Onslaught's vehicle mode, plus some size comparisons, and demonstration of Shockwave's capacity to be carried as a gun by most any figure with 5mm-friendly hands - which may be subject to hand shape, as a square projection can be seen just in front of the 5mm handle, potentially ruling out figures with larger or unusual hands shapes. Keep reading to check out the new shots!
Anselm Lin has gotten hold of Legends Class Shockwave, one of the four figures from the first 2016 assortment, and shared some pictures via TFND. In these photos we get good looks at the robot and alt modes of the figure in final production colors, as well as shots from the instruction sheet showing the suggested interaction with Onslaught and Bruticus - as a jet pack. We've got the photos mirrored, so keep reading to take a look!

Transformers Asia has revealed images of collector's coins for two figures scheduled to ship in December: MP-11T Masterpiece Thundercracker and Unite Warriors UW03 Defensor! Amusingly, the Unite Warriors coin package is based on Defensor's chest - including a chestplate made from the Legends-class Groove this figure doesn't come with. Keep reading and see for yourself!
