Following on the inventory data confirming Combiner Wars Cyclonus, we've learned that the Transformers Battle Tactics game has been giving hints about this already. In game images captured by down shift of cybertron.ca we can see through the chibified proportions their their Cyclonus has design details in common with Silverbolt's toy, especially evident in vehicle mode. We also have clear indication that Viper is Powerglide's recolor and strongly resembled the Rattler aircraft from GI Joe. Click through to see it all!



A source whose name is being withheld at their request has reported finding more new Combiner Wars information in the inventory data of the major retailer for which they work. Voyager wave 3 is now expected to consist of Hot Spot whose vehicle design was revealed recently, and Cyclonus which seems to validate a standing rumor of the recolor/remold for Silverbolt. The listing also include Voyager Optimus Maximus, which can be guessed as being the white recolor whose boxart we saw that gave us the first hint of Legends Rodimus. More established information was verified, which you can keep reading to see the recap of.



Daniel, @2Danomite2 on Twitter has shared a few more shots of Combiner Wars Motormaster with us, this time showing the details of just the Menasor torso mode. The surprising thing which Daniel subsequently verifies is that virtually everything above Motormaster's legs is new parts compared to the Optimus Prime iteration. As it was yesterday with the inner details, today we have a first look at the sculpt of the closed chest doors which are much less "fake chest window" than on Optimus, and if you ask me looks even better than having Blackjack inside! Keep reading and check it out!



Hasbro has posted its product page for Leader Class Thundercracker with official images and a product description! A seemingly chrome-free remold of Legends Jetfire, Thundercracker seems to come with most but not all of Jetfire's gear, with the iconic booster pack sensibly excluded. Keep reading to see!



2Danomite has followed up his first round of photos with some shots of Motormaster configured for Menasor, although three-fifths of the combiner still consists of Aerialbots for now. But this notably gives us a first chance to see the remolding for the inner combined-mode chest which up until now has always been concealed under Blackjack in the promotional photos. We believe the outer chest doors may have changes as well, but we're still waiting to get a look at those. Meanwhile, click through and check out the new pictures!



Twitter user @2Danomite2 has posted images of his just-arrived Voyager Motormaster! The figure is looking good, and Daniel says that he ordered the case from Entertainment Earth. If so, we can hopefully expect preorders to be filled soon from other online retailers. Keep reading to see the photos!



Hisashi Yuki has once again posted an image of the upcoming Masterpiece Star Saber, but this time the V-Star seems to be giving Arcee, Windblade, and Chromia a lift. Most notable about the photo is the fact that Arcee sadly uses the open hands which are not very good at holding her accessories - you can see in the photo how far her gun sticks out of her hand. All three figures in what Yuki seems to refer to as the "Woman Robot" series are due to be released in Japan on Valentine's Day, February 14th. Keep reading to see for yourself!



After being delayed more than once, it seems the rather late fifth issue of IDW's The Transformers vs GI Joe will finally be hitting shops during the month of February. Comics Alliance has released the preview for this issue a bit early, so we finally get to see a bit of what comes after issue 4's use of "weapons-grade magenta." Comics Alliance reported it would ship alongside More Than Meets The Eye #37 on 2/4, but John Barber has since verified on Twitter it will ship on 2/11. ...possibly with MTMTE #38. Click through for the mirrored preview pages and a copy of the solicitation blurb!



ComicsAlliance has just posted an interview with Mairghread Scott, writer of Windblade, about the upcoming Combiner Wars crossover! Revealed is the length of the crossover- six issues over the course of three months - and the fact that Windblade is going to continue on as a book after its conclusion and that Scott has longterm plans for the series and character. Scott also drops hints about a character she's wanted to write for ages making an appearance... Keep reading for excerpts and a link to the full interview!



The Higekuma Toy Blog has posted an extensive gallery of photos of the first half of Legends LG-08, Swerve and Phaser! A recolor of Generations Legends-class Swerve's US Mini-Con Flanker, Phaser looks at first glance to be in a more traditional space-shuttle white, but there was a second reason for that: Phaser's gun mode has been painted to look as much as possible like My First Blaster, the remedial training gun given to Swerve in the pages of More Than Meets The Eye! Keep reading for a sampling of photos and a link to the Higekuma Toy Blog so you can see them all!

Autobase Aichi has posted a pair of blurry, fleeting images from German Toy Fair of Combiner Wars Devastator! There's not much else to be said except that he does look like Devastator and does appear, judging by the Silverbolt in the background, to be larger than Superion. Check it out!


The Collector's Club figures aren't the only exclusive Transformers to have fallen into the hands of eBayer lena81822 of late. Also in the seller's listings is Transformers Cloud Hellwarp! A Beast Wars II-inspired recolor of Generations Sky-Byte, Hellwarp is an upgrade of Skywarp (with Cloud appropriating Takara's version of Fall of Cybertron Skywarp to serve as that universe's version of the character). Shark Mode isn't shown, but there's a solid gallery of robot mode photos. Keep reading to see!

The TFWiki's Tumblr Page has posted sprites and bios for the upcoming mobile game Transformers Battle Tactics, and in so doing has given us a full bio for Alpha Bravo complete with a function and details on his weapons, just like the old days.

Keep reading to see it for yourself, along with sprites for Bumblebee, Optimus Prime and Wheeljack!

A new image that has surfaced on Terminal Video Italia, an italian toy retailer. appears to reveal there will be a Transformers: Robots in Disguise 2015 SIdeswipe figure coming in Three Step Changer class. Interestingly, the image seems to be have been posted accidentally with the Warrior class Bumblebee figure. Shown, is part of the figure instructions depicting the three different change stages. Read on to see the image now for the full reveal.


IDW artist and colorist Josh Burcham found himself inspired by the deleted scene from More Than Meets The Eye #22 that was posted by writer James Roberts at New Year's, and took it on himself to bring the scene to life. The result, posted at the 2005 forums, is an absolute delight and captures the spirit of the scene perfectly. Keep reading to see for yourself!


Hasbro's official Facebook page has shared a message confirming what we'd been told at cons before: in recognition of Megatron's faction change at the end of IDW's Dark Cybertron storyline, the upcoming Leader-class figure can be displayed with Autobot or Decepticon faction symbols! How this will be accomplished remains to be seen, since the Decepticon symbol in the promo shot is tampographed on. More details as they become available, but for now keep reading to see Hasbro's message!
