Combiner Wars wave 2 has begun shipping from various retailers all over the world, and some are even showing up at retail, but in all of the rush to find the next new figure to add to the collection, we tend to forget just who it is we're adding to the roster.

Well, Hasbro hasn't forgotten that biographies are a necessary and longstanding component of the Transformers universe and wave 2 is no exception. Hasbro's newest Combiner Wars releases have included new extended bios for the current wave of figures, such as Air Raid, Breakdown, Dead End and Offroad.

With Seibertron's assistance we now have full scans of the packaging bios for you to enjoy, below:

Even better, the bios are done in LSOTW-style personal data logs.

LOVING Offroad's bio. Especially the last part, since it supposedly represents the fans' feelings about him :x

Maybe one day, hasbro will give us a rung figure. Shame I think it will be very far off.

Robotmel; that nova prime...i can totally see that happening, but who would his limbs be?

Also is the second picture supposed to be?

Those bios are great. especially Off Road's. If they do something similar for Alpha Bravo, will they mention his arch nemesis Rated X? :lol:

So do we know, are these printed on the cards, or front and back covers of the comics?

One thing that has always bummed me out over the years is that the illustrators how do all this great package art get no credit. These are really nice paintings, I'd like to know who made them. They should be at least allowed to sign the art.

I want to say they are on the cards. It would be logical but I dont know if cards come with them. could be back of the comic.

I was thinking the actual blister cards, not the collector cards. I think if they come with comics, they dont come with collector cards.
Interesting though, I found Huffer and Blackjack yesterday and they DID come with cards. It's nice that since the Legends can't come with comics, they still get some art.

I think they may be on the back of the comic, as the image before each bio is the cover for the pack in comics provided.

The cardback would have to advertise the Combining gimmick, as well as display other types of information (like copyrights and addresses). This is most definitely from the comics.

Sorry, I was thinking the little collector card. If these dont come with a card then it has to be the comic.


EDIT: yeah looking at it, its definatly the comic and there are no cards. I should look more carefully.

I liked the cards though. I was hoping to still get them with the comic. :-(

oh well.

The first wave of deluxes only came with the cards because they were in fact the international release of the figure sold domestically due to time constraints. From wave two on, all deluxes will have comics, and the legends, voyagers and leader class figures will instead have the cards. Any deluxes released outside of the U.S by hasbro, including Canadian retail should have cards as well.

Off-Road walks in Maccadams, sits down next to AlphaBravo.

OR) Hey fellow newbie, my team still dosn't like me, they want the old guy back, they keep going on that he's been seen somewhere far away, and that there are signs he could show up here again...
AB) Could be worse, at least you aren't a helicopter.

FULL DISCLAIMER:
I love both these guys, can't wait until Offroad is available here. :)

I'm seriously considering getting two Offroad figures and turning one into an alternator nemesis prime. The colors are perfect and the head swap (probably from deluxe classics prime ) won't affect transformation! Then I'll make him part of Cyclonus team :CON:

I wonder if Hasbro will try to get the so far unreleased Wave 1 Deluxe comics distributed in the US. I imagine later production shipments of that wave will come in the intended "US" packaging now, but what are we to do for those who have already purchased the "international" batch? Maybe they can offer a mail away for the four first issues of "Combiner Wars"? Or, perhaps, at least offer them online?

The first wave come with pre dark cybertron issues though don't they as combiner wars itself doesn't start till next month spread across three issues Transformers #39, Windblade 1# and a one shot (I think it's a one shot at least)

Offroad walks into a bar.

He staggers back and says, "What the scrap, Dead End?"

Dead End says, "Shut up and take your lumps, new guy."

Nah. I'm too much of a purist to own that masquerading monstrosity they're calling Optimus Maximus. Sunstreaker will stand alone. The only combiner I'm getting is Devastator. Maybe Menasor if Takara puts a Wildrider in their set.


You do realize CW Suntreaker may not look like his G1 self right? Everything points to him being a retool of CW Breakdown:

Hopefully they'll give Streaker a remolded chest plate to go with the new head sculpt. If not, I'll still pick him up. G1 Sunstreaker's chest kinda resembled Breakdown's chest.
