Big news to start the week out right! As I'm sure you've already seen, we finally have the first clear image of Devastator posted, which you can see here.

The following news is based on rumors, but the sources behimd all of it are known for their accuracy and honesty, so the info's quite solid. (That being said, please take all of this with the smallest grain of salt because Hasbro's plans are subject to change at any time.)

Fellow Seibertronian, Shajaki, found new information he compiled from fellow fansites TFW2005 and Cybertron.ca. The data he's provided has been truncated so we can get right to the point.

TFW2005 boards member Mr. Chaos reports that a friend of his has uncovered new Generations Combiner Wars figure names in the Walmart computer database.

Among those names, he's uncovered the following:

Voyager Cyclonus. Apparently, he will be the wave-mate of Protectobot Hot Spot, both feature similar coding (Hot Spot is B2397, and Cyclonus is B2398), and are one digit off in UPC (Hot Spot is 63050929832, and Cyclonus is 63050929833).

Optimus Maximus, a white redeco, will be in wave 4 (his code is B2727, with the UPC 63050932502).

Mr. Chaos confirms the names and UPCs of the Protectobot wave, which seems will all be available together in one wave, wave 3. (This will be the first time a full team combiner has been released in one wave, and will hopefully be a continuing trend for the future of the line.)

Blades - B2393, UPC 63050929828/
Streetwise - B2394, UPC 63050929829
First Aid - B2395, UPC 63050929830
Rook - B2396, UPC 63050929831

Wave 4 is supposed to consist of the Autobot "Masquerade homage" figures - those being Sunstreaker, Ironhide, Prowl, and Mirage.

No wave numbers provided, but Legends Blackjack, Huffer, Groove, Warpath, Viper, Rodimus, and Skywarp are also coming up in the system.
As we already know, Blackjack and Huffer are wave 2 and have begun seeing release in various Asian parts of the world.

It seems that the Transformers Battle Tactics game has been giving hints about Cyclonus all this time. In game images provided by down shift of Cybertron.ca we can see shared design details in common with Silverbolt's toy, that is supposedly the basis for the upcoming Cyclonus figure.

Not to be outdone, it seems Viper is Powerglide's recolor and strongly resembles the Rattler aircraft from GI Joe. We had originally reported on the possibility of these figures, here, courtesy of fellow Seibertronian staffer Va'al.

Some big news, big things to come, but that's not all! Fellow fan Venksta, of Renderform fame, has uncovered and shared some info with the fandom as well:

Rook, the new Protectobot recruit is a new mold figure and carries a mix of Universe (2008) Onslaught and Scout-Class Breacher from Hunt For The Decepticons, the one who was partnered with Voyager Class Sea Spray in that same line. Venksta goes on to say that it's a six-wheeled, SWAT-type vehicle, while lacking a gun turret.

It's expected that we'll see reveals of these figures and more at this year's Toy Fair in New York City, the second week of February. Seibertron staffers, including Seibertron himself, will be on site to bring us news on the fly as the event unfolds, so remember...

Keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news amd updates, plus the best galleries around!

Looking forward to getting a Voyager class Cyclonus toy. Even if it's a repurposed CW Silverbolt toy.

Speculating that white deco Optimus Maximus is meant to combine with the Masquerade Autobots team.

Hoping this Means the rumored Generations Leader class Ultra Magnus toy is a new mold. Would like it to be inspired off the earth mode IDW Ultra Magnus comics art design.

Even with a massive retool, I just dont see the silverbolt mold as Cyclonus. I liked the deluxe mold and could care less about bigger toys. If anything they should have made a voyager galvatron to be the torso.

With knees up there I'm not even considering Devastator.

I was struggling to understand why Ironhide and Prowl would make up part of a gestalt called "Fakeasuar," which sounds like a faux-dinosaur. Then I realized it was an attempted portmanteau of "fake" and "Menasor," which should probably be spelled "Fakeasor" instead.

Sorry about that haha it was a little late when I was typing that :HEADHURTS:

I don't care what others are saying, that Devastator is a thing of beauty, I really couldn't care less about if he's G1 or not. My only concern right now is if he has any accessories or not, because that could be a deal breaker for me if it's just the figures.

I'm really hoping for a g1 or IDW styled Galvatron :D

Wasn't that rumored earlier (or am I just crazy)? Anyways, yeah, a Galvatron would be a welcome addition to my shelf, hopefully he's a retool of leader megs or an entirely new voyager mold.

You know what would be really cool on the Masquerade homage figs? Keep stunticon colors in alt mode, autobot colors in robot mode.

I do really like the look of this guy, but based on the fact that its Leader Class and is Thundercracker, make it a low priority for me. This will be one that I'd pick up if ever on sale

Well, that's really an underwhelming toy.

Depending on how the Armored Swat Vechicle for Rook is designed. Was think it could be repurposed as a CW toy for Swindle or Brawl.

Think it will pull of a nice G CW Cyclonus toy. Not everyone likes the small toys, this is for them.

That CW Silverbolt toy has a 7.5 inch robot mode. Being repurposed as Cyclonus means it'll scale nicely with UT Mania King.

Not everyone is building the ultimate final Transformers toy collection. Where they just buy one character toy to complete the set and that's it.

Some of us just collect our truly favorite characters and that's it. For those that do this. We can afford to have multiple updates of the same character in different sizes in the same fictional toy universe.

So, my question is, are we going to see a U.S. release of Slingshot to complete Superion. Or, are we going to need to get AB?

Well...there's that.

I really hope it looks better in finished product.

I'm glad that everyone else seems to be pleased with what they're seeing.

Forgot to comment about Leader Thundercracker.

I'd be perfectly contented if Thundercracker were the only Seeker we were to get from that mold, as that body design is his and his alone.

They just need to do a new Voyager sized Seeker and milk it for all it's worth.

Now that you mention it, it is a little sad that we haven't yet gotten a G1-esque Voyager Seeker mold. The only lines that have given us Voyager (or Voyagerish) Seekers, regardless of G1-ness, are Armada, Cybertron, Movie 1, Animated, and ROTF. :-|

I think without context or scale it looks strangely small and fragile. Then again, display models often either cut corners or don't take advantage of poseability.

For me, a simple test would be if he can bend his knees and pose a little. It always seems like combiners are forever straight legged, which while statuesque is somewhat static.
