TFW2005 user SidneyY has posted a translated interview with TakaraTomy designer Hisashi Yuki, who talks at length about the decisions that went into Superion and why Takara's version has different deco and has reintroduced Slingshot to the team. He also talks about the Japanese Legends line and his hope to create new products for it now that all of Generations will be shunted into Unite Warriors. And of course he talks about MP-24 Masterpiece Star Saber, and how it was engineered to use as little paint as possible to avoid chipping on the complex toy.

Twitter user @tsukumo_TF decided to help Legends Huffer not feel so left out while his wavemate Blackjack was being a chest decoration for Motormaster. With some simple fanmoding, Huffer can now take position on Ultra Prime, and looks really nice doing so! This works the same way as early pictures showed Thundercracker, by grasping the pegs on Ultra Prime's chest. The same caution may apply though: Mind how you fit Huffer on there or risk the hands breaking. Click through to check out the photos!
Hasbro's Greek website has posted official images for upcoming Combiner Wars figures! We've got Voyagers Hot Spot and Cyclonus plus Legends Groove, Viper, and Warpath.

Seibertron user Bounti76 has located Generations Brainstorm at TJ Maxx! The discount store chanin is charging $15.99 for the figure, which is not only pretty reasonable but makes it fairly likely that you'll soon be able to find it at the Ross discount chain for a dollar or two less. Keep reading for the photographic proof!
Chuckdawg has posted a new video for the final Hasbro Aerialbot just starting to get in to distribution with the rest of wave 2. Air Raid is a heavy reworking of Skydive, and the video shows the new elements of the toy in both modes, as well as finally showing a fully assembled Superion. But apart from a fully joking segment near the start, the contents of the included comic are not disclosed, so it will remain a mystery a while longer what this wave is packed with.
