New Galleries: Combiner Wars Defensor and the Protectobots

New Galleries: Combiner Wars Defensor and the Protectobots

Protectobots - Transformers Combiner Wars galleries are back with a vengeance. This time we take a high resolution photographic look at Combiner Wars Defensor and his component Protectobots Voyager Class Hot Spot, Deluxe Class Rook, First Aid, Streetwise, Blades and Legends Class Groove. You can find all these guys in wave 3 of Combiner Wars. In this iteration of Defensor, Groove has been replaced as a limb by newcomer Rook and relegated to forming chest armor for Defensor.
New Galleries: Combiner Wars Legion Class Ultra Magnus, Skywarp, and Cliffjumper

New Galleries: Combiner Wars Legion Class Ultra Magnus, Skywarp, and Cliffjumper

Legends - Another Seibertron.com gallery for the weekend, featuring some ambiguously placed Generations Legion figures of Ultra Magnus, Skywarp and Cliffjumper. Why ambiguous? Not only do these go almost hand in hand with the galleries we posted yesterday of Motorbreath and Thundercracker, they also sport the Generations Combiner Wars packaging and logo, though without the Combiner Wars banner. At the same time, they are simple repaints, much like two figures in yesterday's galleries, of the Optimus Prime, Starscream and Bumblebee that were re-released with Age of Extinction. Just to make it clearer for everyone.
New Galleries: Combiner Wars Cyclonus and Galvatronus

New Galleries: Combiner Wars Cyclonus and Galvatronus

Cyclonus - Our latest Seibertron.com figure gallery features an unexpected repurposing of a previous wave figure: feast your eyes below on Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Voyager Cyclonus! The figure is a fairly significant remold of the Silverbolt toy, featuring a new head, torso, paint job, wings - and an entirely new combiner head, ready to form an almost Decepticon leader - Galvatronus, nemesis to fan-built Victorion and possessor of mind-bending powers.

An image of Generations Arcee in a new deco surfaced yesterday and now more images have appeared online, courtesy of Daimchoc's facebook page and his friend Oscar Fung. These images also feature the Generations Chromia mold in a new deco. While people have been quick to assume that these decos are made to mirror the Combiner Hunter team from the IDW comics (pictured below), this new deco on Chromia is far from similar to that specific deco, which is more along the lines of the how the toy - Read More
