New Generations Combiner Wars Legends Retailer Listings For 2016
ExVee - Monday, June 01, 2015

Mr Chaos, who has for months relayed information from the inventory data of a major retailer once again is bringing us new Transformers reveals. Pushing us in to what by now must be about the third assortment for 2016 (likely representing all the way to next summer), we have three new Legends named, including a very likely recolor, possible retool, and probably a new mold! Click through to find out who's incoming!

The latest additions to the Legends Class lineup include Ravage, who will almost certainly be a recolor of the previously listed Legends Class Stripes, likely with no remolding. Next is Rumble, who may stand a chance of being retooled from Rewind, also previously listed among what's being considered 2016's second wave. However, depending on alt mode selections, Rumble may prove to be its own unique mold.

What does seem likely as a new mold is Wheelie. One of a dwindling number of classic Minicar characters not yet updated in the current Generations Legends line, Wheelie has a good chance of featuring an alt mode similar to the original cartoon design. Of course, we could be surprised here, as we think back to Warpath which no one expected to be a minorly retooled Megatron. And with nearly a year between them, there's probably little danger of an orange Wheelie being too similar to the red or maroon Rodimus, if this would turn out to be another Blackjack recolor. Time will tell!

What's really interesting is the observable trend in next year's Legends figures. Among them we have today's reveals of Rumble and Ravage, added to the previous Stripes, Rewind, and Buzzsaw. There's several cassette characters, and it's highlighting a very distinct absence: Soundwave. And probably a Blaster as well. But much as it was between the end of 2013 and early 2014, it seems like a number of these specifically grouped characters sharing a size class might be in support of or themselves supported by a larger figure they can interact with. We can anticipate that the auto-transform disc-based designs won't be an element this time around, but all these listings certainly give the impression that somewhere we could be seeing new takes on Soundwave and Blaster, perhaps at the Leader price point. And that may also explain other notable absences, such as Eject and Laserbeak who could find themselves as pack-ins.

Of course, this is all speculative for now, but with Botcon right around the corner and SDCC not far behind, we just might get our first real hint of what's happening next year sooner than we expect!

Business Insider reports that the letter sent to all ToysRUs employees explaining the company's current state and laying out their lack of severance has set a timetable for the closing of stores and warehouses.

Thanks to SurgeOpressor we have a sighting report of the new assortment of Cyber Battalion figures featuring Shockwave and Sideswipe, plus some new photos of Shockwave. The figures were purchased at a Walgreens in San Francisco (of which we assume there must be a staggering number all told) with at least one other sighting in the same area indicating the beginnings of distribution for the new wave. They're priced the same as their predecessors at Walgreens, around $18, though it seems to vary by location. Click through to check out the new photos.
