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!
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!
The Transformers Design Team wants you to settle a hotly-contested question for them: which character will be the 2017 Titan-class figure? Starting this coming Tuesday, fans will be able to choose between three classic large-scale characters for the Titan figure to follow up on next year's Fortress Maximus. Keep reading for all the details!
From now until November 21, the Target Cartwheel App is offering a 25% discount on Transformers toys. This could be a good opportunity to catch up on Combiner Wars if you've been eyeing the wave 4 recolors in anticipation of the imminent arrival of the Combaticons, or to pick up some Robots in Disguise toys you hadn't quite got around to yet. Whatever the case, don't miss the opportunity to take advantage of this sale if you can help it! Keep reading for more information.
Adam Pawlus of 16bit.com has posted what may be the first picture of Scattershot in the official combined form of Betatron depicted on the toy's packaging. Besides showing the recommended placement of the limb robots, this also shows finally how Scattershot's torso mode turned out in terms of color, seeming to lack any significantly contrasting shades and being reduced to minor variations of red. As these are just now beginning to make their way out from US online retail, we're sure to see more soon. Click through to check out the photo!
By way of Entertainment Earth we've got a first glimpse of the next Voyager wave in packaging. Onslaught and Scattershot will make up the first Voyager assortment of the 2016 Combiner Wars product lineup, though most retailers are listing them as arriving this month. This listing image presents the pair at somewhat low resolution, but does verify the "Scattershot" versus "Scattorshot" spelling. Click through to have a look!
Hisashi Yuki has sent out a string of tweets containing nice photos of the individual Constructicons, who will be appearing not too long from now in the form of the UW-04 boxset. These photos show off the newly added individual guns, plus give a bit of a look at the improved arm jointing for a few of the robots versus their Hasbro counterparts. With this being one of the biggest Transformers releases for Japan this season, I'm sure we can expect to start seeing more of this set turn up in Yuki's studio. Click through to take a look!
While there's probably little question in the minds of most as to what Blast Off should
turn in to, TakaraTomy's Hisashi Yuki decided to give the new Twitter Poll function a spin yesterday by asking for votes on this topic. Of course our interpretation is that this is just leaving more hints for fans that when Unite Warriors reaches Bruticus, it will see a space shuttle involved rather than a recolored Slingshot. But if this could have truly decided things, rest easy: with the poll nearly over with, space shuttle has a commanding lead over jet fighter. Keep reading to see the tweet (in Japanese).
It seems that the G2 boxset versions of Combiner Wars Superion and Menasor must be getting close to reaching retailers as more and more pictures start turning up. From Facebook user Bensimus we have a couple shots of the brightly colored combiners battling, trading between victory poses over each other. As for when we'll see these officially for sale, we don't quite know. But one source has implied they might be dated for the beginning of January! Stay tuned for more info, and keep reading to see both photos.
Transfan2 has gone to Twitter posting lots more photos of the G2 version Combiner Wars Stunticons this evening. While we started a little slow with just a few group shots and a bit of Breakdown yesterday, the entire group has now been covered, and even includes some legacy comparison shots with the original Stunticon molds in their G2 colors. Well, a few of them at least! It's a fun looking set, and rather exciting for those of us unable to throw $30,000 at one of the few vintage sets out there. Keep reading and check out the photos!
Transfan2, longtime advocate for G2 Menasor has obtained an early copy of the Combiner Wars G2 Menasor set, and taken a few photos which he's shared at TFW. The photos show the Stunticons as a group, as well as specifically highlighting Breakdown in both robot and vehicle mode. These initial photos are slightly low-res, but ought to just be the start of our getting good looks at these figures. Keep reading to see the mirrored photos.
Via sponsor BigBadToyStore, we've now got first looks at the product photography for the Deluxe Combaticons, previously seen in packaged shots only for non-US markets. These images give us a good look at these Deluxes in their production plastic colors and paint decos. Joining them is Leader Class Skywarp, looking very close to the sample displayed at the Hasbro booth at this year's Botcon. Click through to check out all the new images!
Tonight, Hisashi Yuki kicks off messing around with another combiner's formation by giving us a new photo of Convoy Grand Prime. The variation of the day has each limb brandishing its own individual weapon, effectively covering the combined form in knives and a shotgun. This time out it's also using the straight-leg alternate transformation rather than the official configuration of using the hips to pretend the lower torso isn't non-existent. If you'd like to have a look at the combined Autobots waving dangerous objects from every limb, keep reading!
