New Generations Combiner Wars Legends Retailer Listings For 2016
ExVee - Monday, June 01, 2015

Mr Chaos, who has for months relayed information from the inventory data of a major retailer once again is bringing us new Transformers reveals. Pushing us in to what by now must be about the third assortment for 2016 (likely representing all the way to next summer), we have three new Legends named, including a very likely recolor, possible retool, and probably a new mold! Click through to find out who's incoming!

The latest additions to the Legends Class lineup include Ravage, who will almost certainly be a recolor of the previously listed Legends Class Stripes, likely with no remolding. Next is Rumble, who may stand a chance of being retooled from Rewind, also previously listed among what's being considered 2016's second wave. However, depending on alt mode selections, Rumble may prove to be its own unique mold.

What does seem likely as a new mold is Wheelie. One of a dwindling number of classic Minicar characters not yet updated in the current Generations Legends line, Wheelie has a good chance of featuring an alt mode similar to the original cartoon design. Of course, we could be surprised here, as we think back to Warpath which no one expected to be a minorly retooled Megatron. And with nearly a year between them, there's probably little danger of an orange Wheelie being too similar to the red or maroon Rodimus, if this would turn out to be another Blackjack recolor. Time will tell!

What's really interesting is the observable trend in next year's Legends figures. Among them we have today's reveals of Rumble and Ravage, added to the previous Stripes, Rewind, and Buzzsaw. There's several cassette characters, and it's highlighting a very distinct absence: Soundwave. And probably a Blaster as well. But much as it was between the end of 2013 and early 2014, it seems like a number of these specifically grouped characters sharing a size class might be in support of or themselves supported by a larger figure they can interact with. We can anticipate that the auto-transform disc-based designs won't be an element this time around, but all these listings certainly give the impression that somewhere we could be seeing new takes on Soundwave and Blaster, perhaps at the Leader price point. And that may also explain other notable absences, such as Eject and Laserbeak who could find themselves as pack-ins.

Of course, this is all speculative for now, but with Botcon right around the corner and SDCC not far behind, we just might get our first real hint of what's happening next year sooner than we expect!

UPDATED with a NY Sighting from Twitter user @cogmanhotrod! Multiple members of the 2005 Forums are reporting that the Power of the Primes Wave 1 Voyagers are now arriving in Minnesota ToysRUs stores! The Voyagers were generally lagging behind the other assortments in US markets, making this the first chance for fans to assemble 2/3rds of a Volcanicus and of whatever Starscream's combiner name is. Hopefully we'll know soon, but in the meantime, click through for a link to the messages!
