Fall of Cybertron News
The first reimagining of Bruticus didn't exactly mean the return of the Combaticons, since the characters' names and personalities were nothing like the G1 versions - but for the second instance of the Combaticons Reimagined, that changed. Today, we're looking at the game and toys that reintroduced the classic Combaticons (or at least their very similar counterparts from an alternate universe), Fall of Cybertron! Read on to learn more.
To mark the release of Combiner Wars Wave 5, TFormers is taking a week to celebrate what is possibly the most celebrated - or at least revisited! - combiner team of them all: the Combaticons! Often imitated and duplicated within Transformers, the Combaticons are an important part of the line's lore in almost every continuity. Click here to go to the feature page, and check back every day between the 18th and 24th for more reviews and more articles on Bruticus and all his offshoots and offspring!
Planet X has posted a set of testshot images for their upcoming PX-06 Vulcan figure! Vulcan is PX's take on Fall of Cybertron Grimlock, and as you can see from the comparison shots in this set, it's significantly bigger, bulkier, and less hollow in back than the Hasbro version. Keep reading to check it out!
Thanks to Radio Free Cybertron's Diecast for the heads-up! As befits the name, Amazon has a Transformers deal for their Prime Day promotion! Amazon Prime members can get the Covenant of Primus - the super-slick book that recounts the entire history of the Transformers Aligned Continuity - for only $30! This deal is a Lightning Deal, meaning it's only available for roughly the next three hours. Click through to see the proof and the link!
Planet X has updated their Facebook page with photos of a color sample of the upcoming PX-04 Summanus, a Fall of Cybertron version of Snarl! With a sword very similar to FoC Grimlock's and what appears to be a Scatter Blaster, Summanus is looking really good! Planet X says that this isn't the final production version, so we'll be sure to keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, keep reading to see the photos!
Not an upgrade kit, but from the perhaps appropriately named "Guilty" group is an Ultra Magnus designed in the style of War For Fall of Cybertron, taking a more traditional looking vehicle mode than the Optimus recolor of 2013. This figure is on the large end of Deluxe size, probably comparable to a 6-inch Titanium figure, leaving it a head-scratcher where this is intended to fit in with a collection. This sample is extremely hand-painted, and a production piece will likely look much smoother, but this should give an idea of what to expect in the future. Click through for all the photos.
Robotkingdom has posted images of PX-05 Quirinus, Planet X's take on Fall of Cybertron Slug! Slug, formerly Slag, is a pretty good likeness to his FoC model. If you were a fan of the game or Mairghread Scott's Beast Hunters comic, this is one to keep an eye on. Keep reading for the images!
Along with Iron Giant's Maiden, the Legends-scale Windblade, Iron Factory also showed off a set of Soundwave and his two most popular companions, Ravage and Laserbeak. While the Robot Mode for Soundwave is based on the War For/Fall Of Cybertron model, the vehicle mode for this Legends-scale figure is pretty clearly something new. Since there's no way for Ravage and Laserbeak to turn into Soundwave-scaled tapes or discs at this size, they turn into small drone-like vehicles that double as gear for Soundwave! Keep reading to see!
Planet X has shared new images of their upcoming Neptune figure to Facebook. Better known as the Fall of Cybertron version of Dinobot Sludge, Neptune is looking really good and should fit in with your Generations FoC Grimlock just fine. Keep reading to see the photos!
