On the Transformers Facebook page, we have another image outlining the development process for Firefly, the renamed Fireflight figure from the Combiner Wars Aerialbot team. This image also carries the same very generic head sketch, making it less likely to have any significance of its own. The sketches on the right may show minor potential revisions, but for now this image is a good look at the basics of how Firefly's toy came together. Keep reading to check it out!

Revealed at Botcon this past summer, there's been much curiosity and concern over the whereabouts of Leader Class Generations Megatron who's had no new press since.

Also listed is a solid case of Leader Thundercracker coming in April. You can check out both listings after the cut!

Combiner Wars is the topic on everyone's mind right now, and the new Optimus Prime finds itself high on that list. Despite a less than warm reception when revealed at Botcon, opinions have been changing as we've seen more and more of the toy. And like it or hate it, you can't deny that this Optimus is a huge wall of robot for being a Voyager pricepoint. We've got a couple pictures to illustrate, so keep reading and check it out!
Nichloas' Figure Reviews has finished out the first wave of Combiner Wars Deluxes with a video featuring Skydive.

Youtube user thefallen835 has uploaded his review of Combiner Wars Silverbolt, fresh in stores this week in various places around the UK. This nearly half hour long video goes over a lot of the toy, including both primary modes and the combiner torso. Unfortunately just as with the earlier video of Optimus, a full video for Superion will have to wait a bit longer. Click through and take a look at the review embedded below!

While we're still anxiously awaiting stock to arrive at US retailers, our friends around the world are beginning to enjoy the first wave of Combiner Wars.

16 Deluxes were promised for the 2015 Combiner Wars series, and having learned possibilities for the first dozen, today we might have our final four. Seen in a major retail computer listing are Prowl, Sunstreaker, Mirage, and Ironhide
. While not precisely the Masquerade team, the intent seems evident. This is likely a full recolor wave, so depending just how Hasbro meant "16 Deluxes" there could still be another team to reveal, but for that we'll probably have to wait for Toy Fair. Keep reading for more information!
While one sighting was reported last month, its veracity came in to question. Today there is no doubt - Arcee and Chromia are in stores in the United States!

Matt Guzy from Awesome Toy Blog, and fans Ruminus and MetalSamamon are among those who've found the toys and posted photos for proof. To all those seeking an Arcee, good hunting!
Fakebusker has put up new photos showing Combiner Wars Drag Strip. Notable as compared to previous photos of the toy, we now have comparisons with a number of common prior toys so we can get a real sense of the size of a Combiner Wars figure.

Fakebusker has also written a short review of the toy, and you can find both by clicking the title link!
Noted Shapeways designer fakebusker has gotten a copy of Bombshell from the 2015 Combiner Wars Legends line and posted a series of photos showing off the toy's details, as well as showing its size relative to other similar existing Legends toys, and Bombshell looks surprisingly big compared to Skrapnel in robot mode, but compacts down quite a bit in insect mode. Keep reading to see all the pictures and more information!
