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!

Newsarama has published the full preview for the final issue of the First Strike miniseries. While this issue hits shops next Wednesday, we will still be getting a handful of tie-in titles coming out for a bit - and of course there's always the post-crossover-aftermath-restructuring to look forward to! War for the Core! Deep within Cybertron, the ultimate weapon to kill all Transformers is about to be activated! Meanwhile, Elita One plans to stop the weapon—by killing every human on Cybertron! Either way, looks like some species on Cybertron is going down unless Optimus Prime and Scarlett can save the day… Keep reading to see the preview pages!
You probably never thought you wanted a combiner version of Revenge of The Fallen Jetfire. But you would be wrong, and talented customizer @ChromeTyranno is here to demonstrate that! Starting with a Combiner Wars Cyclonus and incorporating parts from the Uranos unofficial Superion to help remodel it as a Blackbird, the end result is an impressively on-target looking interpretation of one of the few positively-remembered elements of ROTF - and it even has a movie Optimus torso mode! We have several exclusive photos of this project to share, click through to get a good look now!
Just to be entirely clear, as of the time of writing they are not in stock for purchase. But, Walgreens has added a listing page to their website for the exclusive two pack of Cloudraker and Wingspan, bringing the completion of Hasbro's Clone offerings that much closer. Canada has already seen these hit retail in some capacity, in their case via EB Games - though still with the Walgreens sticker on the packaging. This move puts the Clones on track to start hitting around the same time Brainstorm did last year. Keep reading for a link to the page!

With Optimus Prime trapped on Cybertron, the Autobots track down their missing friend, Jazz—and find themselves under fire from humans armed with Cybertronian weapons! Expected in shops Wednesday, November 1, 2017. Keep reading to see the preview!
Following on from our article describing a behind the scenes video introduced by FJ DeSanto and Adam Beechen that was published through the go90 platform, we now have a Facebook video version of that to bring you which can be viewed globally.
