Thanks to fellow fan, Eric John A. Cruz and Cybertron Philippines, we have some great news to share with you: Combiner Wars Wave 3 is hitting retailers in Asia! (This is good news for the rest of us, means it's just a few weeks until they hit the US and other world regions!) Mr. Cruz shared this good news with us on our Seibertron Facebook page, which you can see his post here.

The wave is due to be released on April 18th in the Philippines at various Toys R Us stores, which you can see in the image mirrored below:

Transformers News: Combiner Wars Wave 3 Released In Manila (Philippines), With In Hand Images

Eric John A. Cruz > ‎Seibertron.com
Combiner Wars Voyagers, Deluxes and Legends wave 3 and Leader Class wave 2 will be distributed tomorrow, Saturday, April 18 at Toys R Us Robinsons Galleria (Metro Manila)


Since it's already the 18th in the Philippines, we have in hand images of Wave 3 to share with you, courtesy of Mr. Cruz!

Up first:
Leader Class Thundercracker (base mold is a heavily retooled Leader Class Jetfire, you can see him in our galleries)

Next:
Voyager Class Cyclonus (a redeco of Silverbolt, with a new head) and Hot Spot (a new mold!)

Followed by:
Deluxe Class Blades (a repaint of Alpha Bravo, with a new head), First Aid (A drastic reshelling/remold of Offroad), Rook (a brand new mold!) and Streetwise (Another drastic reshelling/remold of another figure, Dead End)

And last, but certainly not least:
Legends Class Groove (another new mold!), Warpath (a redeco of Generations Legends Megatron with a new head) and finally Viper (a redeco of Legends Powerglide in Decepticon/Cobra (G.I.Joe) color scheme!)

With them seeing release in the Asian region of the world, it's at least reasonable to assume that the April release date provided by BBTS is looking possible at this time, even though Amazon has them listed with a preorder date of June 15th. Chances are this is a special early release and June's the actual saturation release time frame, as soon as we know, you will!

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

At the same time brilliant and yet also :HEADHURTS:

Because on one side, yes he fits, on the other OH MY GOD he's like a dog on the neighbors leg.


It looks like it's holding on for dear life. I'll have to try that out when I get mine next week. Yes, even though I said I couldn't, Robot Kingdom got their shipments in last night. I'm so weak.

The way they fit together (Rook and Groove) I can't help but wonder if that's intentional, but just left out of the instructions. That was what I wanted to do if I had to buy Rook and now that I see it works, I'm fine with the purchase. He just won't see vehicle or robot mode, he'll be in leg/Groove anchor mode forever.

Excellent. Yesssss...

Yep sorry you are quite correct, looked at specific starscream thread.

The leader class thread is very active if not a bit of topic at the moment.

In all honesty the amount of fuss made over thundercracker made me think after seeing the comic that would be the hot topic at this time. It's gotta be almost 100% now we have had an image like the one we have in the latest issue. (I'm on mobile adding images is a nightmare)

While Canada did get the wave 2 deluxes before the states, that was just one or two boxes per store and they never got restocked. Canada has yet to see the legends and voyager molds and the deluxes were never restocked. So while Wave 3 might be coming, Dragstrip is the only stunticon I have still.

Ditto on the other side of Canada.

Sadly as of yet we haven't even seen wave 2 yet on general release in the UK. I can't even get Air Raid to complete Superion on Ebay!

Guess I never saw Viper's robot mode that clearly before. Suddenly, the Joe jokes are purged from my mind, and all I can see is PG being repainted into Combiner Wars Straxus. Much as I love Big Blue, it's not a retool of CW Megatron, so hopefully this will change once I have him in hand.

Er...there are a few on eBay. Importing will probably be expensive, but it's an option.

It's cool that Groove can combine with Rook. I wonder what it looks like in arm mode. Regardless, I am not putting Groove on the chest anymore since there are better spots for him. Still hope a viable shield mode that can attach to an arm can be made.

The Philippines gets everything. When I visited Manila, I saw stuff that you can only buy online in the USA. It was fun to visit a place where adult oriented hobby shops still exist. Cant speak for other cities, but here in Miami, today's economy has gobbled up small business owners.

As I and many others suspected it looks much better than the promo pics. I will be interested to see if the rumors are true and Groove gets retooled into Rumble and Frenzy.

Just wondering. Have you seen any pictures of Frenzy and Rumble in robot mode with the motorcycle alt mode? I have been googling and I can't find any :D

Huh... First I have heard of this rumor, myself. Is there any basis for this rumor, or is it pure speculation?

It's speculation, however in IDWs Transformers #35 and 36, it shows rumble and frenzy are now motorbikes. I and a few other people speculated this change could relate to a new toy or vice versa, similar to other design changes in the past 2 or 3 years.
