After our very own comparison review from fellow Seibertron.com staffer shajaki, we also have a new Designer Desk video from the official Transformers YouTube channel, featuring John Warden and the G2 deco of Combiner Wars Bruticus! Check out the clip embedded below, and take a stroll down memory lane too, with the first version of the loud neon character here, and the Fall of Cybertron take here, too!

I really feel most of the wording used in that promo would be more fit for Menasor.

Went to great lengths to recreate G2
Exemplifies everything that is cool about G2: bright colours, agressive style
Cool for fans to have an opportunity to have him

This is all more for Menasor who we never had an opportunity to own before and who is more G2 styled than Bruticus since he actually has G2 symbols.

Also, Hasbro finally confirms that indeed Shockwave references the Action Master deco.

I still wish we'd get a CW G2 Defensor. No one ever got to own an original G2 Defensor, either.

Keep on wishing, I am with you 100%. I am really *hoping* against all odds for all the same reasons, and more, we see something at SDCC. LioKaiser as far as I know has not been confirmed as the end of CW(although to be fair, Hasbro rarely announces when something is over, only when it starts). But for completeness sake, if no other, we need a G2 Defensor.

:APPLAUSE: I love that the good Doctor used shajaki's picture for the news post headline image.

Now that's some stinkin' Fan community right there! ;)^

I had no intention of getting G2 Bruts, but he's getting hard to resist.

I don't see why they wouldn't. They can milk the molds for more money than releases of the individual figures. And they've only released the First Aid version of that mold three times; as First Aid, UW First Aid, and UW Ratchet. It's the least used, so you'd think they'd want to sell more versions of it to recoup more of the cost.

In that case, that means Hasbro only used the first aid mold once. We really shouldnt count takara with mold use because they really are independent companies and what one does does not have impact on what the other one decides to do in the end.

At this point the CW molds have been completely tapped out and everyone's eager to jump on TR. G2 Defensor is an incredibly tough sell at this point. Wouldn't surprise me if we never even see Liokaiser, either.

Liokaiser is a done deal, he's likely already been produced, or is being produced right now... G2 Defensor would make for a nice sdcc exclusive next year, or down the road, you know, whenever hasbro decide to start offering actually good exclusives there >:oP

The final wave of Transformers Combiner Wars Voyager Class figures are now showing up at Ross. The figure in this wave that will pique the most interest is Sky Lynx as some had trouble finding it at regular retail. Onslaught was also spotted at Ross. If you are still on the hunt for these figures now is the time to start hitting your local Ross stores. The figure in the image below was found at Ross in Wichita, KS for $13.99.

Whoa! $13.99 for a Voyager? Do they have any other figures like Deluxe class?

That's pretty lame that they missed using the G2 Decepticon symbols for G2 Bruticus. They got that right for G2 Superion and Menasor. Ugh...

I saw Onslaught and Scattershot at a local Marshalls for $14.99 too.

Oh, Ross, where would we be if not for your wonderful abundance of post-line, poorly distributed releases?
I may have to look sometime...

I shall resume the hunt with renewed vigor! $14 for his magnificence isn't a deal to be passed upon.

Hasbro really has no control over what stores order. Blame the retailers like Toys R Us, Walmart, Target, etc...

Come on man, dont you know Hasbro has nothing to do with this? This is all on the retailer end. These came to North America in abundance a few months ago, as proof of this toy being found elsewhere in very large quantities.

However, the retailers had a lot of older stock they probably over ordered they wanted to clear first. And now that titans return is near, Toysrus and others dont want the older line and either chose not to buy more from Hasbro or to sell their excess stock to market 6 stores. This happens often and is rarely the fault of the supplier.

:lol: Sorry if I laugh at your pain, but taht is a funny statement, tha I can agree with.
