Just in from Robot Kingdom are packaged photos of Brake-neck and Quickslinger, the Combiner Wars versions of Wildrider and Slingshot. New with these shots are clear looks at the bios for both characters. Interestingly the Menasor diagram on Brake-Neck's package still shows Offroad as part of the team while Superion goes for the full classic lineup. Robot Kingdom says they'll start shipping these on May 1st. Keep reading to see the pictures!
Taking to heart the explained ideas of how Cyclonus functions as the core of a combiner, GIKPA who frequently brings interesting photo shoots has produced a new gallery featuring Galvatronus. Starting off with Cyclonus conscripting several Autobots and Decepticons, we get a look all around look at Galvatronus, leading up to an encounter with an Optimus Prime. We've mirrored a selection of the photos, click through to see them and get a link to the full set.
Mr. Chaos has returned, spreading information gleaned from retailer inventory computers. His update tonight brings us confirmation of a full Combaticon team, featuring the entire original roster of characters. But the surprise comes after that as the next Deluxe wave looks to be another Autobot Car assortment. And the news is rounded out with a set of three more Legends. Click through for all the details!
Sol Fury at TFW has taken high-res photos of the comic pack-ins with the wave 3 Protectobots, giving us a look at the extended bios for all four Deluxe class characters. We also get a look at a couple of the designer desk pages, with some interesting things. Rook is shown with creative use of numerous Combiner hands in robot and vehicle modes, but most revealing is our first look at a likely Vortex retool of Blades/Alpha Bravo! Click through for the images and details.
With the latest comic solicitations, we've learned about the one-shot Combiner Hunters book coming this summer. What stands out about this are the two covers consistently rendering the same three characters in distinctive alternate colorings. The extended info also mentions the first appearance of the Fan Built Combiner character, and that's when things begin to come in focus. It's a bit speculative, but could we be seeing the first hint of an SDCC exclusive here? Keep reading!
Youtube reviewer chuckdawg1999 has revealed an interesting surprise found on the Designer's Desk page of the the comic book packed with Combiner Wars First Aid. Where the same page of Offroad shows a probable Ironhide alternate head, First Aid seems to have a Ratchet-inspired head. We've darkened the lines on the image originally shared with Seibertron to more clearly show the shape of the head, so click through and have a look.
Apparently available to purchase in Brazil, TFW member osenator took the opportunity while visiting there to pick up the 11-inch Optimus Prime Cyber Battalion Commander figure. Having posted a few quick shots of the toy, the one sad confirmation osenator can provide is that it indeed does not have working knee joints, though otherwise it's a pretty cool looking design! Keep reading to check out the mirrored photos.
Victor Wong has posted a few photos comparing the new Generations Cyclonus to the second edition of Mania King, giving us a look at how one Voyager-size figure stacks up to the other. And as it turns out, they suit each other pretty well! Vincent Lee then went back and took photos with the original release Mania King, whose colors seem to be a better match to Cyclonus. Now all we need is a Scourge in a similar size range! Click through and have a look at the mirrored photos.
Thanks to a lot of people sharing photos via Facebook, we've got an excellent sampling of images for Combiner Wars wave 3. Most notably we get some looks at Viper and Groove, who have been a little neglected in coverage otherwise - although Warpath is nowhere to be seen yet. We also have some fun looks at Cyclonus, Galvatronus, and a guest appearance by Cobra Commander! Keep reading to check that out and the full list of credits!
Finally from TFND user GENETIC, we have a gallery of the combined Defensor, following one at a time looks at each of the team members. Hot Spot made a huge impression, and since Toy Fair everyone has wondered how well Defensor will work. Unfortunately the answer is not great. Bending the hips make it look like its ribcage has collapsed, although apart from that it's not doing too badly. We've got the photos mirrored, so click through and have a look!
The Fan Built Combiner voting has been over for a little while now, and while a few results were revealed, much of the options remain a secret - likely to be revealed at SDCC this summer. However, the Transformers Facebook page may have let another slip. Based on the phrasing used, it sounds very much like the chosen foe for the as-yet-unnamed combiner will be Galvatronus. Click through and check out the quoted statement to decide for yourself!
It looks like the best was saved for last, because TFND member GENETIC has posted a gallery of Voyager Hot Spot, and it looks absolutely amazing. Of the three Voyager molds we're due this year, this looks to be the winner hands down, outperforming even the unexpectedly praised Silverbolt. It remains to be seen how well the torso mode will work out, but Hot Spot looks strong enough to purchase just for its own robot mode. Click through and check out all the photos!
Once again, Transformers Dioramas brings us some interesting new photos from the Hasbro exhibit room at an event taking place in Brazil. On hand in the showroom were entries in the Cyber Battalion series of large, simple figures borrowing much from Legends and Cyberverse engineering. The 11-inch Optimus and Bumblebee were displayed, along with the 7-inch Megatron and a previously unknown 7-inch Optimus Prime taking after the Generations Legends mold most recently reused as Huffer. Click through for the pics!
The Brazilian fan site Transformers Dioramas has uploaded numerous additional photos of Titan-Class Devastator from the ABRIN 2015 event in Sao Paolo. Devastator is in slightly better shape in most of these photos, although some aspects of its configuration are still on the unfortunate side. But many of the shots are our first chance to see these details on Devastator. There's a lot of photos, so click through to check them out!
