In a case of incomplete image processing, it seems a bit of extra data found its way in to the stock image of Generations Menasor. With some adjustments to the levels, you can clearly read a portion of a list of filenames, which reveal Huffer and Blackjack on the list of upcoming Legends class toys. Blackjack is very likely Menasor's chest buddy, based on the Micromaster of the same name. We've enhanced the stock photo, check it out for yourself. Thanks to Jalaguy for originally discovering this!

Autobase Aichi has passed along some stock photo finds showing the previously leaked Protectobot-themed figure packs. We now have a look at all five members and can see Hot Spot lacks the purpose-made head from the GDO toy, but uses parts of Grapple's tooling.

Keep reading to see the images!
That wasn't much of a wait, huh? BaCon has snapped more photos of upcoming Generations Combiners Superion and Menasor! The combiners will be sold as individual figures consisting of a Voyager Class for the mid-section and Deluxe Class figures for the limbs. It seems to me like Superion's gun is a robot unto itself... and it looks a lot like Legends Powerglide. Also, it looks as iff Motormaster is possibly a recolor of the upcoming Voyager Optimus Prime. More info as it becomes available, but for now keep reading and check out the gallery! These will be see these out in January 2015 as the start of the "Combiner Wars" to follow Thrilling 30.
We were told combiners were coming for Generations 2015, and here they are! Menasor and Superion are on display at SDCC 2014, and we'll be uploading pictures here as we get them!
