After so far being only able to see the toy in straight-on side or top-down shots, Fengshou Laoren on Weibo has posted pictures showing the upcoming Combiner Wars Sky Lynx from far more flattering directions. Seen now are nice looks at the shuttle and robot modes, and a shot of the underbody showing how the combiner body mass blends in to the rest of the toy. We've got the photos mirrored, so click through and take a look!
Hisashi Yuki has been a little lax in posting Transformers-related toy photos recently, but has made up for that with a great shot of UW-03 Defensor (or Guardian, if you prefer) preparing to engage the massively looming UW-04 Devastator. While Defensor had been set to ship out this weekend, its release was pushed back two weeks, resulting in both combiners coming out during December. Defensor is due 12/12, and Devastator is reportedly expected to go out Christmas Day, leaving both just around the corner! Keep reading for the full photo.
From the 78dm.net forum, user xccain has shared two photos of Generations Sky Lynx, due as part of 2016's second Voyager assortment. These images give side on views of both the regular robot-beast mode, and an attempt at fulfilling the Hasbro design team's hint that the lynx mode could also be coaxed out of the design. This result seems more like a griffin, but it's a start down the path until more people get a chance to figure out the alternate transformation. Click through to see the mirrored photos.

Anselm Lin has posted several additional images of Legends Class Shockwave. In this new batch comes a photo of the back of the packaging showing in color the integration with Onslaught's vehicle mode, plus some size comparisons, and demonstration of Shockwave's capacity to be carried as a gun by most any figure with 5mm-friendly hands - which may be subject to hand shape, as a square projection can be seen just in front of the 5mm handle, potentially ruling out figures with larger or unusual hands shapes.
