A War is coming in 2015... Combiner Wars!

As previously rumoured/reported Hasbro will be rolling out new versions of Superion and Menasor and both teams will come with a sixth member providing extra armor or weaponry!

Check out the latest photos from this years SDCC 2014 below.

Thanks to eagle eyed General Tekno over on the TFW2005 boards, the previously shown Generations Voyager Optimus Prime could be just a cheeky repaint of 2015 Combiner main man Motormaster!
I will let the General explain...

General Tekno wrote:So that core robot on the Menasor is DEFINITELY the new Voyager Prime mold we got teased back at Botcon. The back view of the combined mode makes it pretty obvious.
Also, I'm gonna guess that the Legends addon dudes for the combiners (Menasor's chest car, Superion's powergun) will come with the hands/feet, on account of the hands/feet being completely different colors than the limbs. (And no way they'd paint those given the moving parts)

Interesting!

Are there seriously rotor blades on Superion's legs? I'm a really big Aerialbots fan, and having one of them be a helicopter is so far removed from what is okay in my mind. Not to be the one guy complaining, but that really gets to me :-x
These look like really early prototypes though, so I hope that's not finalized

You know, for $15 - $25 toy releases, I think they look pretty alright, aside from some wonky posing. I don't expect them to look like the third party few hundred dollar releases, because they, well aren't, I think the hasbro samples look good so far.

Ladies and gentlemen, put on your anti-nerdgasm pants on! Starting off our coverage of San Diego Comic Con 2014, we have our Breakfast Event images, which show off our first look at combiners Superion (first teased at BotCon last month) and Menasor! These combiners, part of next year's Generations: Combiner Wars series, are prototypes and show display pieces, hence the hot glue on spots and some wibbly bits and pieces here and there.

As many have guessed, Menasor's central figure is indeed a Motormaster redeco of the Generations Voyager Optimus Prime (also first revealed at BotCon) figure! Also worth noting is that Superion and Menasor are joined by additional characters which are not actually a part of the traditional Aerialbot and Stunticon teams... Superion wields Legends Powerglide as a weapon, and Menasor uses an as-of-yet revealed Legends buddy to form Menasor's traditional car-torso-shield!

Check out the images below, which have been mirrored from our full gallery of the Breakfast Event, which can be viewed here!

I like Superion. I think I'm ready to retire FansProject's Superion in favour of this.

I do not like Menasor. I will keep FP's.

I'm curious to see the rest of the reveals... under an hour to go.

These two are a step in the right direction, but not characters I particularly care about so I'll be passing on them.

I quite like the idea of Legends figures lending some support.

Not bad. It'll be interesting to see how they look transformed properly, especially Superion's arms...are they that long or can they be configured better? :-? Superion's legs look hella silly though #-o

Time to put my negative nancy hat on-I'm super miffed Motormaster is a prime re-paint! :-x MM should be his own bot. Proper miffed and cheesed off now :evil:
.....

Wait...does that mean Prime can combine with things? Does that mean if I make a Thunderclash from Prime...he could combine with things....?

Miffed status alleviating slightly...

It doesn't look like Motormaster is a redeco of the Generations Voyager Optimus Prime - the hinges and configurations are all wrong - but I could be wrong.

Menasor's blue chest gun looks a lot like G1 Skyhammer's gun, though...

Want to see what they look like as individuals. They don't look that bad combined but I'm not real interested in either one.

(Also secretly hoping this leads to a Predaking down the line. I'll buy the crap out of an affordable Predaking.)

Makes sense and it only reinforces the fact that Optimus will be forever tied to his rival. >:oP

I'm not that miffed about as I have Henkei Convoy already and thus have a separate entity from Motorbreath. Remember, AoE Evoution 2-pack for those that don't ;)

And I'm predicting 4 teams, given that Hasbro has said there will be 16 Deluxes in all.

Not really digging Menasor, but that's okay because I never really liked him anyway. Superion's looking pretty cool. Once he comes out I'll probably move the FP one to the Energon shelf where it sort of belongs.

I'd say Superion, Menasor, Defensor, and a Bruticus that doesn't suck are most likely. Still gonna hope for Predaking.

These are the most encouraging things I've seen since the announcement of Metroplex. A serious step in the right direction. Bravo! :APPLAUSE:

I seriously see myself using that Superion, and expect it to not look at all out of place amongst my 3rd Party combiners. Finally - an Autobot combiner for my collection (I've been lukewarm on the 3rd Party ones). I think I'll hold onto my FP M3/Intimidator for now. Honestly, my biggest nitpick with Hasbro's version are the horns. They're a bit off. I'll still pick up the Menasor set for their bot modes, though.

I definitely think "Combiner Wars" is a tongue-in-cheek reference to Hasbro taking it to the 3rd Parties. This is awesome.

I don't think we'll be getting the Protectobots as there's a set of them already in the works. The Combaticons... too soon after FoC? :-?

Menasor kinda has thunder thighs going on. Not bad overall though- loving the head with those horns. Also there seems to be an extra Stunticon forming his chestplate. New character ahoy!

*Prepares for inevitable GEEWUN rage*

Superion looks good, although I think he actually looks a bit TOO G1-accurate. He looks hugely blocky and he's got the birthing hips of the G1 toy- which is not good (especially as IIRC those hips broke all the damn time). Also liking how the extra Aerialbot forms the gun, a la Seacons.

(Also, HasTak/3P take note: We need Seacons!)

What I'm not happy about is the hands and feet being separate pieces. Now granted they do seem to transform into weapons for the individual robots, but myself I'd rather the individual bots had good weapons and the combined form had claws/guns for hands like the Energon combiners than giving the combined form hugely hand-like hands (and oversized ones by the looks of things) resulting in unconvincing separate weapons.

Still, I'll wait for the in-hand images to decide on whether to get these or save up for Uranos and Intimidator. Alternatively I might just get the remaining figures I need for my Energon Superion (with a bit of finagling you can make the Windrazor into an arm with an elbow and a 4-fingered claw if you leave out the weird plank-thing). Because I love cannon hands.

I'm reserving judgement on the combiners till we see the actual finished product. These were obviously rushed to be on the show floor and are still very much in the prototype stage. It does explain why the new Voyager Prime looked so bad though, it was designed to be Motormaster.

They're alright i guess. I'd probably buy them once refined.
Those feet on both combiners are pretty teeny weeny though. I'd like to NOT have to buy a 3rd party upgrade to fix that. That's my only gripe really.

It's Hasbro. It is what is. They FINALLY sorted out their combiners to become "reasonable" but too little too late if you ask me. I've seen WAAAY better combiner figs for years now with 3rd party stuff. It's like watching the slow kid in class finally figure out how to do long division after getting it wrong time after time ,failing, while everyone else blasts past him to the next grade.

Oh.....and why are those shoulder cannons pointing back at Superions head?
I also noticed how bad the hands are. No articulation and look how the weapons peg in!! They peg in to some silly little hole between his thumb and wrist. Look at that tiny wee axe in menasors hand ....or should i say hatchet. Yeesh. Keeep trying Hasbro. Please.

Because of course budget restrictions or the fact these need to be sold to kids (and thus be safety-tested and be relatively simple) has absolutely nothing to do with it. Nope. Must be that Hasblow can't do combiners and that Transformers should be given to iGear so we can have a masterful recreation of every animation blunder-induced variation in Optimus Prime's model.

It's a hastily-readied prototype. It's not finished and it was awkwardly posed/transformed.

Hasbro have tried to do combiners for years and still can't get it right. They might have finally done it with these but we will see when better, official pics get released. Yes, third parties can do better because they aren't designed with kids in mind. this is exactly why Hasbro needs to start looking into doing a high end line. they know the collectors are out there and are willing to drop the cash for great designed products but they are letting other companies rule the roost. They can still produce the kids stuff, I have no issue with that. The best example is LEGO. There is a company that mainly produces kids toys but they have a very successful collector range of large, expensive models that adults can buy and enjoy.

I know you think your being witty and super smart and i'm also a fan of sarcasm. But i think you've completely forgotten how pretty much every new combiner Hasbro has ever done in the past decade was almost a complete abomination of nonsense. Yes i understand about child safety laws and budget restrictions but that has nothing to do with properly proportioned and aesthetically pleasing combiners. The combiner formula was established in the 80's and they seemed to have completely forgotten how to do it till just now.

Combiners are looking good, even the Stunticons, now that I've seen pics of the individual figures. Still, I don't really collect Stunticons so I'll likely skip. The Aerialbots are looking very kibble-heavy, but what can you do. Something's gotta give, I'd rather have awesome bot & combiner modes and sacrifice a bit of vehicle mode realism. So far these are must-buys for me. I just hope Hasbro doesn't screw it up by making them neon colors or something like Fruiticus.

One thing I am really glad for is that they're kicking AoE to the curb instead of dragging it to death for 2+ years like the last few movie lines. Thank Primus.

I wonder if anyone got pics of the RiD2015 toys? Curious to see how they turn out. I may skip the line if it's mostly kid-focused, but I might pick up a few gems if there are any.

The new show reminds me of TRON: Uprising. Which makes sense, as they're animated by the same studio.

All I have to say about the combiners is, real hands, real feet, I'm in. I did notice on Superion that Powerglide just attaches to what looks like the classic gun so I'm glad I don't have to use it if I don't want to.

Kinda bummed that the assortments will be breaking up the teams, would've like one wave to be one team. Yes I am a bit worried that certain limbs will be hard to find.

Nice to hear we're getting Transforming Kreos, just as long as they're not built to rule.

Is that Platinum Prime/Grimlock set the leader set we saw at Bot Con? Word of advice, DON'T ORDER OFF KMART.COM trust me.

New combiners? Possible combiner action in the comics? I'm one happy fan :) Plus if most of you dont like them, then all the more for me :P

Also to whoever brought up Lego and their adult collector products, your forgetting one simple thing, those adult items are still made of Lego, which have gone through the safety tests etc. Hasbro can't just package what they normally make every day as an adult thing. Although having said that isn't he mmasterpiece line for? Hasbro seem to be doing fine the way they doing .thing
