with more slides! In the single largest leak we've yet seen out of Weibo, the entire first four waves of Power of the Primes
have been leaked. We've got a Dinobot Combiner, the Terrorcons, a glimpse of the next Leader Optimus Prime, and much more! Keep reading for a list of what's here and why we're pretty sure it's all real!
Transformers At The Moon has another collection of never before heard deleted audio content from the G1 cartoon. "Roll For It" is the next entry, coming in at about 8 minutes of material. No fully new scenes are contained, but there's a fair bit of expansion present, a small portion of which with audio issues, which are speculated as being a possible reason for those lines being cut. The full transcript is quite lengthy and was published separately from the Youtube video. We've copied that in the full post below for ease of viewing, so click through and enjoy! And thanks once again to Transformers At The Moon for this great piece of history!
Transformers@TheMoon has posted their final tape from the very first episode of The Transformers,
"More Than Meets The Eye, Part 1"! This one is a bit light on new material, but we do get more of voice director Wally Burr directing "body english" takes! This isn't the last of TF@TM's material, but they've finally reached the end of the first third
of the 1984 premiere. Click through to listen!
Today on Weibo, X-Transbots has shared new photos of their Master Mini series of figures. Now in production are Boost, based on Windcharger, and Hatch, based on Tailgate. These are part of X-Transbots' Masterpiece-compatible line, and each features an option part or two to help the figures reflect either media appearances or be a little more toy-oriented. With these samples being from the actual production run, retailers should be seeing these come in stock pretty soon. We've mirrored the photos, so click through to check them out.
TFSource have just let us know about a new pre-order listing for the X-Transbots MM-VI Boost and MM-VII Hatch Not MP Windcharger and Tailgate figures. These two Masterpiece scale pieces include different interchangeable parts, and include both die-cast and ABS parts. The set of two figures is slated to arrive in December, 2015 for a pre-order price of $129.99 USD. Read on for order links and images below.
From the Facebook page of Genmon Photo Vault, we've got a great look at the color testshot of Boost, X-Transbots' take on Windcharger. Though this example is said to be without any paint work, it's already looking quite nice, and the photos go through a nice overview including a step-by-step look at how the arms and legs transform, plus size comparisons with similar figures. There's also a couple quick glimpses of a testshot of Hatch - the unofficial Tailgate sharing this mold. Click through to check it out!

we have many photos from the third party panel held at TFCon Toronto Saturday afternoon. While this represents only a portion of the showings (reportedly they had hundreds of slides to show during their approximately 45 minute run time), there's some items of definite interest, not the least of which is TFC throwing another combiner in the ring in the image of Victory favorite Liokaiser.

Forums member TMan has posted a topic and video for what he calls the Evolution of Windcharger! In this video he gives us his take on the many different Transformers figures this toy has made for/ Watch the video to see his round-up review including the G1, Alternators, Reveal the Shield and Combiner Wars Windcharger figures.
Huffer shared some space with Windcharger as a recolor nobody really wanted. The mold is so much Optimus Prime that to try to give it a different head and pass it as a character who is expected to look much different seemed to be asking the impossible. Plus the design of the figure had never been all that well regarded. But I learned that we were wrong about Windcharger, and I think we were wrong here too. Read the full review!
If you want a Powerglide that doesn't tower over the majority of your other Classics-style Autobots, looks like the original toy and cartoon design, and got released in the correct colors on the first try, you're in luck! And all you had to do was wait seven years. The effort of making Autobot Mini-vehicle characters in the current Legends size class carries on this year, getting in to more remakes to try to update as many characters to this uniform size as possible. Windcharger might not have necessarily needed it, but some will definitely agree Powerglide did. Keep reading
In fairness, what could Tailgate have really been reused as if not Windcharger? Granted, in a way Takara answered that question a few years ago by making Reveal The Shield Windcharger in to Marvel comics character Wipe-Out. While that's probably a little too far afield for Hasbro, it would work a little better using Tailgate's mold than it did just making a black Windcharger. But despite the collective yawn of disinterest this Windcharger received when it was unveiled at Botcon 2014, this isn't something that should be easily overlooked. Keep reading!
There was a lot of information delivered from Toy Fair. Some of it came as reports from those who attended, but most of it was in the form of photos. With so much out there, it can be a little hard to keep up with what's what, so we're going to bring you the highlights of the coverage and break things down for you. Is Constructicon articulation really that limited? And why are they so big? How small is Minimus Ambus? Why is Defensor sad? Click through for the answers to these questions and more!
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!
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!

The Combiner Wars coverage carries on, and tonight we finally have our first real look at the combined form for Optimus Prime. While we've seen Menasor, Optimus has unique parts setting his combined form apart from Motormaster's torso configuration. Also seen in these pictures from a fan interaction event at the Singapore promotional display we've covered previously are packaged instances of four of the Legends Class figures, Thundercracker, Windcharger, Bombshell and Powerglide.
