Thanks to nemesispringer of TFW2005 for finding this new image of Optimus Maximus, the upcoming recolor of Combiner Wars Voyager Optimus Prime! Hosted on thetoyshop.com, it's slightly more of the painted image we've seen before, and significantly clearer: he's shown in his combined form, and his arms seem to be Sunstreaker and Mirage, both rumored from the "Masquerade" wave that appeared in retailer computers early this year.

YouTuber chuckdawg1999 has posted a review of Wave 2 Stunticon Dead End! He likes the figure, citing it as his second- or third-favorite Stunticon - but he's not thrilled with the exhaust pipe weapon, which doesn't make that convincing of a gun. Keep reading to see!

Thanks to @GeneralTekno on Twitter for this one! The story is that artist Livio Ramondelli, responsible for the The Transformers
side of the Combiner Wars crossover, has confirmed that Cyclonus will not
be appearing, thus there will be no impetus to redesign or move the character from his More Than Meets The Eye
appearance in order to have him conform to the Combiner Wars crossover. And frankly, that's a relief. We'll update this story if we get a more direct confirmation of this but for now, keep reading to see the tweet!
It sure looks that way. TFW2001 user scubaboy31
has posted an image from the back of the Combiner Wars Wave 2 pack-in comic which shows various behind-the-scenes images, and one of the illustrations looks very much like Stunticon newcomer Offroad with Ironhide's head. This has been the speculation for a good while now: that the Ironhide that turned up in retailers' computers would be remolded from Offroad to combine his movie, pickup truck self with his G1 design in much the same way as was done in Transformers Prime.

Since the reveal of the long-form bio notes included on the pack-in comics starting with Deluxe Wave 2, there's been more than a little curiosity of who was behind them. Written in-character as either Rung or Soundwave, the profiles feature an interesting and entertaining style that's caught a lot of attention. While we rarely get to find out just who's responsible for describing the characters on the packages, thanks to John Barber this writer's identity has been revealed. Keep reading to find out!
We reported previously on Combiner Wars including pack-in comic issues starting with the second assortment of Deluxes. What we didn't know until today was that the back page of each comic features a long-form character bio. Each is written as a report from either Autobot "Psy-Ops Specialist" Rung, or Soundwave and are written with some interesting details - especially in Offroad's case. Early adopters of wave 1 may have even more incentive now to double dip when the reships of those figures take place. Keep reading to see scans.
