It's that time of year! Amazon has posted a wealth of new official photos for new and upcoming products. Leading off are the Robots In Disguise Titan Changers figures, the new transforming entries into the large-but-affordable line of figures. Next up are Legion Alpine Sideswipe, who is totally not Red Alert, and 3-step Night Ops Bumblebee. Lastly, we have some official photos for Combiner Wars Generations Leader Starscream in both modes. Read on to see, and for links to the Amazon pages!
The TCC has tweeted a new closeup image of the headsculpt for Subscription Service 4.0 combiner Thunder Mayhem today! Based on G1 Thunderwing as seen in his iconic "We Are THUNDERWING!" panel in the Marvel comic, the image shown is said to be the actual sculpt. We'll see how that sculpt translates to final product, but fingers crossed as it's really quite nice! Keep reading to see the image.
If you've recently ordered any Combiner Wars merchandise from site sponsor Robotkingdom, you may have a small delay in your preorder being shipped. The good news is, the delay is to include the new sticker sheet for Defensor and Optimus Maximus! The promotional images only show a few of the stickers applied, but some added detail on your Protectobots and 1984 Team couldn't hurt anything, right? Read on for some images and more details!
With roughly a week to go before the order period for the fourth figure subscription closes, the Transformers Collector's Club is following through on its promise to get current renders of the remaining figures out to their customers and potential customers. Today's entry is Bludgeon, the core of the Mayhem Attack Squad combiner(and a remold of Onslaught, the as yet unreleased remold of Combiner Wars Hot Spot). Furthermore, a new gestalt head is promised - which presumably we'll see in the upcoming render of the combined form. Read on to see Bludgeon!
Autobase Aichi reports that, like Superion and Menasor, there is now a sticker sheet for Combiner Wars Devastator that has appeared in Taiwan! Unlike those sticker sheets, which were available with any sufficiently large purchase, these are only being offered with the purchase of Devastator himself. Hopefully these will find their way to other online retailers as happened with the first set of stickers. Keep reading to see the sheet, the instructions, and some before and after images!
Hisashi Yuki has posted a silhouette very familiar to US Combiner Wars fans on Twitter! While Twitter's own Bing translation is something incomprehensible about a "Time Warrior," Google Translate gives a more teasing tone, translating roughly to "I wonder when I should reveal the next Unite Warrior? Maybe next month?" Should be interesting to see TakaraTomy's take on Optimus Maximus, but until then all we've got is this silhouette. Click through to see it!
So by now you may have handled either Combiner Wars Optimus Prime or Motormaster, and noticed that the hip ratchets are kind of finicky. They leave the legs either bolt-upright or in a very
broad stance - an issue that transfers over to Ultra Prime or Menasor's hip articulation. Interestingly, reports are coming in from early Japanese purchaser of TakaraTomy's Unite Warriors Menasor that this Motormaster does not have these problems. More information as it becomes available, but for now read on for photographic proof!
Be honest with yourselves: haven't you wanted to get to know Alpha Bravo a bit better? TFW2005 has reported on a set of photos that have surfaced of the rare Combiner Wars Wave 1 pack-in comics! To ensure that Wave 1 hit promptly last December, Hasbro shipped the international packaging versions to online retailers, so the comics were largely never seen with figures. But they've turned up at a Taiwan comic con, so we can now read the long-form bios prepared for the Aerialbots(and Dragstrip). Keep reading to see them!
The Reprolabels core team have posted their latest update on their Facebook page. Get a look at their new upgrade sticker sheets that add more details and highlights to your already awesome Transformers toys. This update features lots of updates for Transformers Combiner Wars figures with what is sure to be a popular set for the Combiner Wars Devastator combiner team that will take things up a notch for those with the mass market release. Also, we have new sets for Protectobots, Ultra Magnus, and More figures you can see below.
New images of Subscription Service Spinister surfaced today, and small tweaks are in evidence compared to the previous render. Autobase Aichi was kind enough as to provide a comparison image so you can see the changes: the largest change is that all the black paint on the figure is gone, but this also resulted in more accurate teal windows/toes for this reuse of the Combiner Wars Alpha Bravo mold. Of course, as this is still just Photoshop work, the final product is very much subject to change as happens regularly. Click through to see the photos!
Hisashi Yuki is still at it, posting new images of TakaraTomy's upcoming releases! Today we've got two images of Legends LG16 Slipstream hanging out with a testshot of Unite Warriors Groove, the all-new Deluxe-scaled motorcycle bot that's part of UW03 Guardian/Defensor! Odds are excellent Yuki has more photos of both on the way, but for now click through to see today's offering!
UW02 Menasor is due out any day now, and Hasbro Asia will be exporting it to non-Japanese Asian territories as often happens. Those who acquire Menasor through their distribution will also receive this collector's coin, shown to us courtesy of Autobase Aichi, packaged in a replica of the figure's chest. Keep reading to see the images!
Ever since Hasbro revealed their Combiner Wars version of Combaticon Blast-Off to be a jet instead of a spacecraft, there's been rampant speculation that TakaraTomy would likely elect to make their own version of the character. Today, Hisashi Yuki has posted a sketch of G1 Blast-Off to Twitter with a message that seems to suggest he's pondering how to best mix the G1 cartoon and toy design elements. Keep reading to see!
Unite Warriors UW02 Menasor comes out later this month, and Hisashi Yuki of TakaraTomy and Twitter fame has a new photo for us! Showing the Aerialbots (as seen in UW01 Superion, previously released) and Stunticons facing off, Yuki notes in the tweet that Superion is rarely seen on shelves now after its release a few months ago. Combiner Wars seems to be doing well in both the US and Japan. Read on to see the photo!
Giovanni Sanchez of the Transformers Colombia Facebook has posted an image of Battle Core Optimus Prime combined with Air Raid, Quickslinger, Rook, and Alpha Bravo and white third-party hands and feet for a extremely white version of Optimus Maximus! But also noteworthy is the look at the torso, which sadly refutes the rumor that the inner torso has been remolded in any significant way. Keep reading to see for yourself!
