Benscollectibles on Youtube have posted a few new video reviews for the Transformers Generations Combiner Wars figures. Get an in-hand review of the Optimus Prime, Silverbolt, and Firefly figures that we first saw last summer at BotCon and SDCC. Read on to watch all three of the video reviews below for more information on these Transformers toys.



The long, long-awaited G1 Arcee figure is hitting stores now! RAC likes the figure, but some extremely otaku design choices detract from the overall enjoyability (and even G1 accuracy) of the figure in favor of making the Arcee of designers Hironori Kobayashi and Yuki "Kiss Players" Ohshima's very... personal dreams. Also, you currently have a 25% or less chance of getting fully functional hands. Continue to full review



Robotkingdom has put up solicitations for Wave 2 of Combiner Wars at the Voyager and Deluxe scales, with a shipping date of mid-to-late January! Looks like Hasbro is trying to aggressively follow up on the success of the Age of Extinction toyline- and probably push to get new product stocked so we don't end up with eons of pegwarmers like we did with Dark of the Moon. Keep reading for links, wave breakdown, and pricing details!



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!



The Transformers Facebook page has uploaded a Designer Desk image, featuring the newest Aerialbot, Alpha Bravo. The Slingshot substitute is shown at each of the major design steps, from sketch, to model, to production-plastic sample and deco sheet. But the real bonus from this glimpse behind the scenes are the head sketch and helicopter art. The latter could very well be what to expect of a Blades reuse of this mold, and while the head is quite generic, might that be the pre-tool alternate? Only Toy Fair can tell us, but in the meantime keep reading to check out the full image!



Pre-holiday toy distribution can be an amazing thing sometimes, as the United States has gone from zero to nearly full availability of Combiner Wars in a short few days! Pushing the cycle forward we have our first reports of Combiner Wars toys hitting store shelves, with the Legends assortment making it to Target locations, priced at $9.99. So far Austin, Texas and North Little Rock, Arkansas have been confirmed and more are sure to follow. These will be everywhere soon, so hold tight and save your money! Click through for the photo evidence.



Want to get started on the best Transformers comic ever written for cheap? Comixology has the first volume of James Roberts & Alex Milne's More Than Meets The Eye on sale for $4 for a limited time! This includes the first three issues of the book plus the one-shot "The Death of Optimus Prime" that immediately preceded the beginning of MTMTE and Robots In Disguise. Keep reading for the link!



Chuckdawg1999 has gotten Combiner Wars Legends Wave 1, and has posted a video review for the whole wave! In addition to the recolors Windcharger and Thundercracker, new figures Bombshell and Powerglide are here as well. Chuck says the new figures are best in wave- fortunate, since everybody would want Powerglide even if he was bad. Keep reading to see!



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. Robot Kingdom has come to the rescue however, offering up preorders for the first 2015 Leader assortment featuring Megatron and its retool as Armada Megatron, offering availability in early 2015. Also listed is a solid case of Leader Thundercracker coming in April. You can check out both listings after the cut!



PaxCybertron has posted images of Legends Windcharger to Twitter! A remold of Generations Tailgate, Windcharger is looking good and lacks the hood-chest inaccuracy of the otherwise-great Reveal The Shield Scout-class toy. Keep reading to see the new Windcharger for yourself!

PaxCybertron has posted images of Legends Windcharger to Twitter! A remold of Generations Tailgate, Windcharger is looking good and lacks the hood-chest inaccuracy of the otherwise-great Reveal The Shield Scout-class toy. Keep reading to see the new Windcharger for yourself!


HK-TF user Sam Chan has posted an image of Combiner Wars Superion standing next to MasterMind Creations' FeralRex, their take on G1 Predaking. While FeralRex does have some height on Superion, it's not very much. So far, Combiner Wars Superion is stacking up to third-party combiners pretty well in terms of size and looks. Keep reading to see the photos and judge for yourselves!


Blacklai has come through again, giving us a nice, meaty gallery of Superion images. Superion looks much better than Fall of Cybertron Bruticus by basically every metric: articulation, proportion, heft. He's also using Powerglide in Gun Mode for the complete package- keep reading to see the gallery!


While we wait for Blacklai to post his own shots of Superion, here's a handful of photos from a Singapore event, by way of the Transformers Addict Facebook group. Superion is on display and looking pretty decent! Also present are Powerglide and Bombshell, two of the upcoming Combiner Wars Legends class figures. Keep reading to see!


Blacklai of TFND is continuing his Combiner Wars photo spree with Superion's core, Silverbolt! Looking somehow both more modern than the Universe figure but also equally G1, Silverbolt transforms into a jumbo jet with a big block of robot folded up underneath. Tradition! But this isn't the end- Blacklai signs off with "to be continued," so hopefully Superion photos are forthcoming soon. Keep reading to see the photos!


Just in via Amazon product listings are updates for the Transformers Combiner Wars Alpha Bravo, Dragstrip, Firefly, and Skydive figures. Along with the official images that have been circulating already, we have some extra details on these figures with the product descriptions that have been included in the listings. Read on to see them all now.


iTunes has posted the 3-page preview for this month's issue of More Than Meets The Eye. It's difficult to say too much about this issue without spoiling issue #35 for those who haven't read it, so let's stick with saying it features Orion Pax in the pre-war era. Keep reading for the official version of that blurb along with the three-page preview!


Blacklai continues his Combiner Wars photosets, posting 22 new images of Aerialbot Firefly to TFND! We've mirrored them here, and he looks pretty good! Firefly is shown in Robot, Vehicle, and Leg modes, and looks pretty good in all three- particularly in his very G1ish jet mode. Keep reading to see the photos!


Blacklai1979 has posted images of Stunticon (and stand-in Superion limb until Combiner Wars Wave 2 hits) Dragstrip! He's looking pretty good, and comes with a swordgun to complement the HandFootGun that all Combiner Wars Generations Deluxes will include. While you wait for the Star Wars Episode VII trailer to load, keep reading to see Dragstrip in Robot, Vehicle, and Arm modes! UPDATED! to reflect the original source of the photos and to include all 27 photos of the figure!


Singapore fangroup Planet Iacon has posted images of diagrams showing Superion and "Ultra Prime," Combiner Wars Optimus Prime's super robot mode. These use only the Wave 1 limb-bots, so each of the Autobot combiners is making use of Stunticon Dragstrip in some form or another. Since they seem to be emphasizing the Scramble City mix-and-match aspect for Combiner Wars it works but still... weird. Keep reading to see!
