I know the feels. I have Superion and Menasor, but probs won't be getting Defensor until the fall. I cannot for the life of me find G1 Megatron for less than $50 anywhere, and all my stores have Armada Megs, but not G1. Plus, I'm looking for Magnus in the fall too. Now that it's official, I will probs get the 4 limbs and Optimus to make Ultra Prime hopefully :BOT:


Yeah I am hoping to get Cyclonus and some limbs of my choice, just so I have a CW gestalt finally. :HEADHURTS: I am REALLY excited about Ultra Magnus though! :DANCE: And Devastator! :michaelbay: 8) #-o :roll: =; :HEADHURTS: :SICK: I-) :???: :evil: [-(
RANDOMNESS!

Cyclonus shall be mine. I am working on my Lost Light crew, and this Cyclonus looks really good to me. DEVASTATOR! He is on my Christmas list. I want him soooo bad. I will have all my "G1" Combiners! :BOT:




Devastator is my absolute FAVORITE COMBINER EVAR!

:KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK:

At this point, DEFENSOR is my favorite. Badass name, many different components, and He looks frikkin awesome :BOT:

Well. I ordered my Quickslinger. Bbts has both of them in stock but one per customer. Which is kinda awesome. Anyway, can't wait to have an all jet superion. Not getting breakneck. I really like off-road and I don't care if he's not 100% G1
I have been into transformers since 1984.
While I love G1 I also love new innovations and takes on the characters.
I prefer official Hasbro releases of stuff for the most part
I'm not a huge fan of Japanese original Transformers media or designs.
It's easier for me to say which are my LEAST favorite toy lines: Beast Machines, Robots in Disguise.

Me too. Sale of the figs opened at midnight EDT, and as of 45 minutes later, both are still available in stock. If they sell out overnight, BBTS will be doing another big release at 10-AM, if anyone wants to snag one of these.

I got my Brake-Neck from Amazon, so I'm set on both. Been fiddling with the Protectobots too. It would, indeed, be kinda bummer news if we couldn't get the Takara Groove...

BBTS put both Quickslinger and Brake Neck on their site at 12:01 today. For the first Fourty minutes the site was going slow and kept freezing. Somewhere around 12:50 am, the site went a bit quicker.

Was able to order One Brake Neck and One Quickslinger from the BBTS site.

Think it was a smart move by BBTS to limit the ordering of One item per person for the toys. As it makes sure more get at least One each. Limiting to one per person also make it harder for the scalpers to profit off of this.

*sigh* I hope Groove will come out like Brake-Neck and Quickslinger just did at BBTS.

Still... :DANCE:


Though, in lesser good news, Quickslinger was sold out at 1:25 AM EDT. If you missed him, check BBTS again at 10 AM EDT. Happy hunting!

I find it very hard to believe Hasbro won't make deluxe Groove available through the same sources as Quickslinger and Brake-Neck. Not only are they disappointing their market (who are still mostly going to get Rook because it's a cool mold that fits well with the team) but they are also passing up on making money, and that makes no sense as this is Hasbro we are talking about. They are all about the Benjamins. :ic$:

Maybe it just won't be available this year. Maybe they will wait until next year in the hopes of maximizing profits by making sure everyone buys Rook first because of the uncertainty of Groove's availability. :-?

Another possibility is that Hasbro wants to release Afterburner first and then do a minor retool of that into Groove, thus leaving the Takara G1 style figure as a Japan exclusive while still eventually giving everyone else a reasonable option. :PEACE:

It didn't go up with no warning. TFW had this message on their front page news site Yesterday Seven hours before 12:01 am, Alerting fans.

TFW wrote: Just now 4:54 PM May 21, our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store posted an update to their Facebook detailing how the Combiner Wars Quickslinger and Brake-Neck will be made available. The update gives the pricing - $17.99 each - along with stating there will be a one-per-customer limit. Most important is that there is a solid release window for these going online to order, which is 12:01 am on May 22nd. If you miss that, don't worry - BBTS will be posting a second wave at 10am EST on May 22nd.


There were also rumors last week. That May 22nd was the official release date. for BBTS and maybe other sites to list and sell CW Break Neck and Quickslinger.

Quickslinger And Brake-Neck Now Available At BBTS, TFSource, TRU & Target

Postby Autobot032 » Fri May 22, 2015 1:28 am

Weapon: Switch Blade Tail
Ah, Quickslinger (Slingshot) and Brake-Neck (Wildrider), you've finally come along to G1-ify our Superions and Menasors.

First, it was Amazon!

Then, it was Walmart!

And now both BBTS and TFSource get their listings out there for all to shop! (It should also be noted that they both played by the rules and followed the street date of 5/22 (AKA May Mayhem) while Amazon and Walmart did not.)

Up first, the BBTS listings for Brake-Neck and Quickslinger:

Brake-Neck

Quickslinger

You'll notice that they're both currently sold out, but don't panic. A quick read of either figure's sales page will bring you to this very important disclaimer that you must read and follow in order to receive your much needed figures.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to an extremely limited supply from Hasbro, we are enforcing a strict limit of ONE PIECE PER PERSON on this item. We realize the site will allow you to check out with more than one piece, we kindly ask that you order only 1 piece. Orders for more than 1 piece will be delayed, manually reduced, and refunded. Please help us make this process smooth by ordering only one piece.

Please also note that we will be releasing inventory in two waves. The first wave at 12:00 Midnight Eastern Standard Time and the second wave at 10:00 AM Eastern Standard Time on 5/22.


So, as you can see, one per of each figure and the second wave will be available later this morning at 10:00 AM EST/7:00 AM PST

And now for the TFSource listings, both of which are preorders and neither figure is currently in stock at the current time, but are expected on 5/25 and are on their way to the warehouse as we speak.

http://tfsource.com/combiner-wars-web-exclusives/

They also have a disclaimer which must be read, quoted below
Now up for preorder - Combiner Wars Quickslinger & Brake-Neck! Order yours here: http://tfsource.com/combiner-wars-web-exclusives/
These are en route to the warehouse and instock next week,we have a limited amount of each, strict limit of 2 pieces per customer, while supplies last!


Target and TRU also have them available. (NOTE: They have no restrictions mentioned, so apparently there are no limitations as to how many you can order at a time.)

Target

Quickslinger http://www.target.com/p/transformers-ge ... ickslinger

Brake-Neck http://www.target.com/p/transformers-ge ... brake-neck

TRU

Quickslinger http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.js ... search&cp=

Brake-Neck http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.js ... age=search

With BBTS already sold out on one wave, the second surely to sell out, and TFSource also receiving a small amount, now's the time to preorder or start button mashing asap. Even more so if you're an Australian collector, since it's been confirmed that they will not receive distribution in Australia, sadly.

While you're waiting for your order/preorder to be filled, check out our galleries of these two new Combiner Wars additions by clicking on Quickslinger and Brake-Neck's names.

There was only a 2nd "menasor" portrayed in that episode that happened to be Autobots using their own special powers to create this illusion. Winchargers electric field provided the static electricity to hold them together. And Mirages hollogram powers provided the disguise. There was no Autobot combiner. It was an illusion. We never saw what was under the hologram. And even if you have a vivid enough imagination that you want to "pretend" that this was what was under the hologram, they used the wrong autobots. So its not even a homage to the masquerade episode. Its just a really lazy repaint. Ironhide with no window on his chest ? Cmon now ? Sorry to be such a killjoy, but I stand by my opening comment. These repaints are really going to suck...


I'm gonna be that guy, cause it's buggin me.

Mirgae's holograms? No. That would be Hound, who wasn't part of that combiner. Mirage was, and his "power" is invisibility.


Besides Mirage's invisibility, he can actually change how he appears, albeit in limited duration. Mirage aka Dragstrip (re-watch the show Masquerade again) and you'll hear Mirage state so...about maintaining the Menasor head.



I always took Mirage's Line "and I can hold this phoney face" to be a thinly veiled complaint abou having to look like Dragstrip, as there was never any other insinuation that his power was anything other than just invisibility.
