Retailers in the United States have begun activating their stock of the special extra Combiner Wars figures Quickslinger and Brake-Neck tonight. While individual policies and performance are varying, we know at least that BigBadToyStore is rationing out their supply with a strict limit, and a staggered release of the figures in to inventory. But given these are appearing at every major and most specialty online stores, they should be relatively plentiful at least in the short term. To find out more, click through for links to our reviews of the figures!
The Planet Iacon Facebook group managed to get some photos of Titan Class Devastator, but not the standard one. They appear to have turned up an early sample of the special edition Devastator that will be sold at SDCC this July. However, unlike most expectations, this is not featuring a Generation 2 inspired yellow or (more correctly) orange deco, and instead seems to be a "premium" style G1 deco, in much the same way Metroplex was offered in 2013.

Figure King Magazine scans are starting to pop up, and thanks to Taghobby we have our first look at the Transformers content. Alongside some upcoming recolors and first releases in the Transformers Adventure line including RID Drift, and Legends-Class Powerglide and Cosmos, we have some brand new reveals, including what seems to be our first Takara-original Combiner Wars limb with Deluxe Groove. Check out the scans and more details by clicking the title!
With their street date of May 22 fast approaching, Brake-Neck and Quickslinger - Wildrider and Slingshot - continue popping up in listing pages on retail websites. The latest of these is Walmart's US website, where they were briefly marked as in stock at a price of $16.96 before having their status switched back to unavailable. Remember, most all major retailers and many specialty toy retailers will be carrying these come Friday, so don't worry about missing your chance!
Weibo user Starscream has fed us out another new look at Titan Class Devastator. Today dressed in an ascot, we get a demonstration that the giant's right forearm actually escapes having a hollow side. It turns out Scavenger's chest plate is made to rearrange itself and act as a gap filler to both solidify the look of the arm and make it feel a bit more incorporated to the whole. Sadly it seems Bonecrusher-arm has no such benefit, at least according to some scrutiny given to Toy Fair photos. Click through and check out the photo!
It may be sooner than we thought before we're able to get hold of Combiner Wars Devastator. Just after the listings appeared for Brake-Neck and Quickslinger late this week, Amazon'com now has a listing page for this year's big ticket Combiner Wars piece. No price is listed right now - it's marked "unavailable" - but we do get a first look at the clean, unretouched stock photos for Devastator and the individual Constructicons. Click through to have a look at all of them and the link to the Amazon page!
Amazon has posted product pages for the Combiner Wars iterations of Wildrider and Slingshot, Brake-Neck and Quickslinger. While they briefly showed with in stock status at a price of $16.99, they've subsequently been reset to "unavailable" pending the street date of May 22. But just in case a few more slip through, we've got the links in the full post below, plus links to our reviews of both figures. So click through and keep reading!
Weibo user Lost-Zzl has shared several additional images of the black Generations Skids that turned up early today. In these more detailed shots we can see the deco includes some subtle gold shading in the door stripes, more solidly tying this to being Diaclone inspired. Unfortunately there is no more sign of what this toy is meant for than when we started, but the complexity of the deco certainly implies a premium format, if not Botcon use. Click through and check out the photos.
GENETIC on the TFND forums has come through again and given us our first comprehensive look at Ultra Magnus, the highly anticipated Leader Class Combiner Wars figure. Along with our first good size comparison with Classics Optimus Prime and an overall really detailed look at everything this figure has to offer. Spoilers - It's not made to carry Deluxe Autobot cars around. We've got the photos mirrored, so click through and have a look.
Weibo user Starscream has brought us our first look at Starscream. The recolor of Thundercracker whose existence was strongly hinted by a mistakenly published bio on the Australian Toys R Us site and an almost simultaneously released comic book cover is now proven fact with these first photos of the toy in hand. These pictures show the toy wearing a crown, implying that will be an accessory as it doesn't seem to match either the Masterpiece or Cybertron Supreme Starscream's crown parts. Keep reading and check it out for yourself!
Anders Lin has returned with several new photos on the MR TOY+ group. Following the quick look at Ultra Magnus yesterday, now it's all about Minimus Ambus, as we get to see a close up of its robot mode, its brief transformation steps, and a vehicle mode turnaround. Of note, this example of Minimus looks to have the movie-style Autobot logo tampographed on. Otherwise, it's looking good, especially for being possibly only slightly larger than the partner figures Generations Legends used to come with! Click through to see the mirrored photos.
Tonight, eHobby posted a couple of new shots of their upcoming Grand Scourge exclusive to Twitter. The Combiner Wars Optimus recolor based on a piece of Transformers Superlink merchandise is seen first carrying its massive sword borrowed from Beast Hunters Ultimate Optimus Prime, and then merged with the Stunticons, borrowed from UW-02 Menasor. Keep reading to check out the new pictures!
On the MR TOYS+ Facebook group, Anders Lin has shared several new photos of Leader Class Generations Ultra Magnus. This toy which was the surprise hit of Toy Fair this year is heavily influenced by the IDW intepretation of the character, right down to the inclusion of a tiny Minimus Ambus to ride along with him. These photos give a basic overview of the toy, including a shorter hammer that can be made while leaving one gun free. Click through and check out the mirrored photos!
Apparently last month, Weibo user Starscream grabbed a picture from an event that prominently featured Combiner Wars, and displayed there was the full packaging art for Optimus Maximus, the wave 4 combiner featuring Autobot cars and an Optimus Prime recolor that as yet has not been officially revealed. The photo has only a portion of the art, but along with a sample previously circulated, we've pieced together a mostly complete look. Click through to check that out and some quick extra info!
We've expected it since day one, and finally we have evidence that we're going there. Art clearly depicting a G2-colored Superion has appeared as a display poster at a currently unknown event. Very much looking like the style of a blown up package design, it appears that by whatever means we see G2 Superion released, it will be in giftset packaging - also coming as little surprise. This appeared in the background of a shot from Weibo user Starscream韋, and we've highlighted the relevant parts, including a peek at G2 Air Raid. Click through and have a look!
