We recently reported on some good news regarding Unite Warriors Menasor, where the side-to-side hip ratchets on Motormaster had been modified to give the toy its correctly intended stance and movement range. The news gets better, because via multiple reports we've determined this same change has made it to the production of Battle Core Optimus. Thanks to payres on TFW, we have a couple photos demonstrating the new and improved leg positioning. We've got them mirrored, so keep reading to have a look!
Combiner Wars meets Masterpiece in another photo shoot from Gikpa, who has found a way to attach the Masterpiece Bumblebee mold (the G2 variety in this case) to the Combiner Wars Optimus torso, and still getting Legends Rodimus in there too! While the method of combination is not shown in these photos, it's still an interesting and not at all bad looking custom combined form. We've mirrored a few of the photos, but there's many more at Gikpa's Facebook, which you can find linked below. Keep reading to check it all out!
Genmon Photo Vault on Facebook again offers a set of excellent photos. This time looking at the just-released Unite Warriors Menasor wearing the Perfect Combiner PC-01 hands and feet and the PC-04 body kit. Besides showing how the parts look on the Takara release, they do a great job of demonstrating just what kind of mobility Menasor can have using the parts. If you've been on the fence about either upgrade, these might be what sells you. Click through to see it yourself!
Hasbro wants to know more about the fans, or so seems to be the message conveyed by a detailed survey opened today. Seemingly spearheaded by Hasbro UK, they're interested in responses from all over the world and indicate that the results will be shared with the relevant branches when finished. The survey isn't brief - depending on your level of detail it may take some time to fill out, and we can't be sure how much effect this will ultimately have. But if you'd like to add your voice to the collection, keep reading for a link!
Coming from Moon_Base_TF on Twitter, we have a few photos showing off a complete Optimus Maximus, notably giving us an early look at the combiner that very few have managed to assemble so far. But beyond that, it's also shown using the white hands and feet from Perfect Effect's PC-05 set, and the Menasor torso add-on from PC-04. Both things work together to make a pretty nice looking finalized combined form. We've got the shots mirrored, so keep reading and take a look!
Just in tonight, Amazon.com has listed Battle Core Optimus Prime from Voyager Wave 4, stating it will begin shipping later this week. So far this figure has seemed to pop up solely in Asia, while the associated Deluxes have been working their way in to distribution here in the United States. It now looks like we'll be winning the race to see who gets the other half of the combiner first, if Amazon's promised date holds true! Keep reading for a link to the product page.
Thanks to Masabon1980, we've got a ton of photos of the just-released Unite Warriors Menasor to share with you. Featuring significantly modified deco compared to the Hasbro releases, all of the Stunticons bring something different to the table, but the greatest change may be to Motormaster. As we reported earlier today, TakaraTomy has adjusted the pattern of the outward ratchet joints in Motormaster's hips, allowing a more natural stance that follows what the toy was obviously designed to do. We have 50 photos mirrored, so click through and have a look!
Hisashi Yuki has tweeted a set of photos showing off Unite Warriors Menasor again. In the latest batch, Menasor is seen wearing a solid set of each Stunticon, showing the many solid colors possible if you too would happen to have three extras of each Unite Warriors Stunticon limb! Which seems unlikely, but not unprecedented from some Japanese bloggers at least! If you're curious what Menasor would look like with four of TakaraTomy's nearly solid yellow Drag Strip or any of the others, keep reading and take a look!
Unite Warriors Menasor will be released this month, and Hisashi Yuki is promoting it with some Twitter photos. In the latest, he shows a Menasor with the components arranged a bit differently than usual. Everyone sports some variation, though some of it eliminates points of articulation from Menasor, seemingly to trade knee joints for effective ankle tilts to perhaps aid the combined mode's stability. Click through to check out the new photo!
While the wish for actual Combiner Wars Scourge/Sweeps will likely go unfulfilled for the foreseeable future, one enterprising fan has made do in the meantime. SkyQuake, who has for some time designed custom connector parts to add other figures to CW torsos has apparently worked out a method to attach Generations Scourge as arms and legs, finally making a version of the Galvatronus many probably really want. No information right now on how the connection works, but it's a pretty cool looking solution. Keep reading to check out the photos!
Today seems to be a Windblade kind of day! Adding to it, Priscilla Tramontano, whose art can be found in various Transformers publications, has tweeted a piece of linework from issue 6 of the current Windblade title. According to Tramontano, this specific art won't be seen in the book (though something like it probably will!), but it's a nice piece and an interesting look at the development process to go along with the step-by-step that was posted earlier today. Click through and have a look!
BEAST WAR! On EUKARIS, the colonists are more than just robots in disguise-they're whole new breeds of Transformers! But while WINDBLADE and STARSCREAM struggle to gain allies on this brave new world, an ancient power seeks to force them off the planet!
Brian Dagley, who yesterday reported the first in store sighting of Combiner Wars Deluxe wave 4 has today posted a couple quick shots of the set combined. In the absence of Battle Core Optimus, he used the regular Optimus Prime, resulting in an Ultra Prime rather than Optimus Maximus, but a nice looking result all the same. Sadly, Rodimus seems to get a bit lost in the red of the torso, but nothing can be perfect. We've got two pictures, so click through and check them out!
More from Victor Wong on Facebook, now showing off Voyager Wave 4's Battle Core Optimus out of the box. A quick photo overview shows off the toy, including a side by side with the original release of Combiner Wars Optimus, although at least in that mode the robot head is the only point of retooling. Despite one combined form shot, we still haven't gotten a look to see the rumored retooling inside the combiner chest, but hopefully soon! Keep reading to take a look.
Coming via Josue Cahua of the Transformers Colombia Facebook group, we've got a word of warning about Titan Class Devastator tonight. While we haven't been able to track the original source yet, an image was posted showing Mixmaster severely cracked, with an attached warning to not over extend the Devastator ankle tilt joint. We can't know how likely this is to happen in general, or if this resulted from pushing the toy beyond its clear limits. But we want to make sure everyone is aware to be on the lookout and take care with Devastator's left leg. Keep reading to see the full image!
