Thanks to a heads-up from our own Sabrblade, we have our first look at the Junkion combiner teased by designer Mark Maher in the Hasbro Pulse livestream this morning. Feast your eyes on.....

Transformers News: Junkion Combiner Revealed by Designer Mark Maher

Using Trashmaster as the torso, Scraphook and Axlegrease as legs, and Crashbar and another (unrevealed Junkion?) as arms, Junkasaurus comes together looking pretty awesome. Mark revealed this on social media just a little while ago, and we're glad to bring this to your attention!

What do you all think about this combined mode? Are you going to get those Junkions you may have missed or on so you can create your own Junkasaurus? Let us know your thoughts below!

DAMN, not only is a Junkion gestalt an idea long overdue to be realized in plastic, I'd say this is also the closest we've yet gotten to a toy of Dragon Beast from that early TF:TM draft, despite its components not being passable Predacons of course.

Now I feel lazier than ever for still not having kitbashed PotP Elita-1 into a Nancy for 4 PotP Wreck-Gars with new heads to a attach to. Someday, Garbagia-Infinite, someday...

Is there any other time a combiner team has snuck up on us in such a manner, not revealing that they were such until some of their components had been in stores a while? Were there rumors of the Fossilizer gestalt from the time we knew of their Weaponizer-esque Mix-n'-match abilities?

EDIT: I know the Breast Force were introduced that way in the Victory anime, but they were obviously a gestalt team if you had even one, right? Or did a lot of European kids never realize they'd been somewhat cheated by the Rescue Force?

Oh, RESCUE, right! Anyone else think this thing was partly inspired by the Scrapmaster?

It is the mother of all coincidences that Hasbro planned to release a big dinosaur-shaped robot combiner made of non-dino-based components in the same year that BotCon is also releasing a big dinosaur-shaped robot combiner made of non-dino-based components.

Very cool.

I plan to get Trashmaster, Strongarm, Bombshell, Shadowstriker and Dreadwing. I'll probably get Detritus, too, but I want my Hound(!).

I was all about the core Optimus thing until I saw the price.

I'm guessing two of the not autobot junkions will work for the legs over the mix matched non decepticon junkion, looks like a cool idea.

Only just noticed the combo of faction symbols on detritus, nice :) much better than the silly merc symbol. Plus having him first will give a better idea if I want to replace classics hound or not.

I didn't realize that was a new junkion as the other arm I thought it was detritus, cool

Dreadwing looks much better with the official reveal, I think the leak only had yellow paint apps on the face and wrists

This one has it on the wings and nose cone as well

This honestly looks pretty cool! I'm probably just forgetting some but I don't think we've really had a combiner that's a beast like this that isn't...RotF Devastator or something.

Off the top of my head, there was this fiction-original Beast Mode version of Unite Warriors Lynxmaster.

Man, the stream was cool today.

Snarl looks good as a robot and stegosaurus, but I am still not sold on the leg mode.

Shadow Striker just continues to make me unreasonably angry, just like Bulkhead. Just call it "Universe" Shadow Striker, not Cyberverse, and I think I'd be better.

Strongarm is a neat concept, but dammit, I hate that they used the Elita mold. That mold is pretty mediocre, and she is not nearly thicc enough.

Bombshell is OK, he might go well with FOC Kickback. Still need to find Shrapnel.

Detritus looks pretty decent, I will get him for the dinobot/junkion shelf.

Bludgeon is surprisingly really cool looking. They actually made that work really well. I will be getting him.

Trashmaster is excellent, that is such a cool new guy! And I love the Junkosaurus combiner mode, that is nifty and unique!

Dreadwing looks smart, I love him. He is mine.

the Prime/Bee set is pretty nice. no interest in me, but still a nice little pack.

Even that wouldn't fix everything since she's still colored more like Side Burn and has none of Universe Shadow Striker's deco.

But I'd at least feel better about it. That is not Cyberverse Shadow Striker, and it saddens me that they are basically checking that box off using this one.

Yeah. It simply makes no sense to G1-ify the Cyberverse designs since the Cyberverse designs are already G1-ified as they are. They're even more G1-like than the Unicron Trilogy designs.

Exactly, there isn't a good reason for it.

i like what they are doing, fusing designs and such, I do, but it feels odd when most of the figures are accurate, but select ones are fusions, and the fusions usually end up being the ones that I care for the most.

Also, In the stream they mentioned the movies in the Legacy talk. It makes me think/hope maybe some live action influent will makes its way into Legacy. Maybe a Blackout or proper Barricade. I'd like that.

Junkasaurus should be about the same size as other CW/UW/PotP combiners. This also works out perfectly considering the good guys were short by 2 in my overall Combiner Collection. This closes the gap.

I'll be substituting in Tow-Line for Axelgrease (to keep a faction-aligned combiner). Here's to hoping the Crashbar retool to make the other arm isn't also a Decepticon Junkion... :-s

I'm still getting Axelgrease though because all the Junkion weaponizers are really great.

Wouldn't they really be G1-ifying the Car Robots moreso than Cyberverse. I know this is Shadow Striker, but we know it's really Speedbreaker.

They said in the stream that this is specifically Cyberverse Shadow Striker, and that they merged in design elements from the Universe Shadow Striker's original Side Burn mold in order to G1-ify Cyberverse Shadow Striker.

I know what they said, but the true base figure is the Speedbreaker figure the OG Shadow Striker was based on. The car mode is doing most (if not all) of the Cyberverse work as she doesn't have a whole engine block for a chest...

I posed the same question in the thread specifically about the Livestream. Yes very odd indeed.

There's quite a few Buzzworthy items that haven't been officially revealed yet. Maybe at SDCC?

So is this showing a second Motorcycle deco we don't know about? It looks like two differently deco'd torsos in the shoulders.

They are really trying to get me to buy Scraphook. I just want more motorcycle junkions.

Hoping we get a redeco of Trash master as RB Salvage. The mold in interesting to me but I just don't know that I feel these Junkions. Having to be more selective with my purchases.

Probably not. A CW leg is part bot and part thigh from the torso bot, this guy is all bot leg and it's bent. Plus notice how big Mark's hand is behind it.

I imagine a lot of people will swapping Axelgrease for Tow-Line to get a more cohesive Autobot combiner. That's assuming the mystery limb is an Autobot. Is Trashmaster an Autobot?

I really like Junkasaurus, it's properly crap.... as a compliment. LOL. Feels like it's inspired by ROTF Devastator.

What's I'm struggling now is what to do with the limb bots. Should they be all Autobots for color/faction harmony... which mean doubling up on the same figures, or get the Decepticons ones? I don't usually double up on the same mold (except of course for the likes of Seekers & Datsun bros etc.), and the mixed colors is not without its charms for "a piece of junk"-asaurus combiner. Decisions...decisions...

They intentionally made that thing look like a fan-made kitbash. I suppose that's fitting for the Junkion aesthetic, but I just don't find it appealing. Usually I'm a sucker for a combiner team, but I think I'll be giving this one a pass.

There's just something about "Junkasaurus" that reminds me of Zod or Ultra Zod from the GoBots. Maybe it's the head and mouth thing. Maybe it's that it kind of has wheels for hands. Maybe it's the overall stance. It just reminds me of Zod.

I'd love a set of five done up in blue to represent Zod. I tried to think of five actual GoBots it could be made from but Throttle, Night Ranger, Dart and of course Scooter are all Guardians which leaves Cy-Kill as the only Renegade motorcycle. Throttle and Night Ranger would've been perfect though since they're both completely blue. Even Dart is part blue like Cy-Kill. Both Throttle and Night Ranger also come in white but the blue toys were used for the fiction so it would be difficult to change their factions like it could've been for the decos that weren't used in fiction by making them new characters.

Otherwise it would be Flytrap who is part blue, using Trashmaster as a base.
Buggyman who is all blue from a retooled Scraphook.
Stallion who is also all blue from a further retooled Axlegrease.


Maybe each piece becomes a different Blast drone or something? Five different Blasts combine to form one Zod.

The beauty of Junkasaurus being a combiner made up of both Autobot and Decepticon-aligned Junkions means that it technically belongs to solely neither faction and can be used for either-or. With that in mind, were I to make Junkasaurus a bad guy (or an anti-hero type), I could easily pit Junkasaurus against this year's BotCon-exclusive combiner Dinostorm.

The Junk combiner looks sick as heck, in the one main pic marc showed, included in the seibertron news article, it looks the the other arm opposite Crashbar is just an all tan/sand recolor of him? I wonder if its a stand in for the eventual retool. If its anything like Scraphook into Axelgrease i could see it turning out pretty neat and easy to add to my collection

Junkasaurus just rocks, plain and simple. I love it when we get hidden "semi-official" combined modes in there. And I like that this isn't just a standard humanoid combined form. It's all around something cool!

Designer notes for Strongarm

https://www.instagram.com/p/Ct0ASGeMTcG/

Officer Strongarm is popping out of the animated 2015 Robots in Disguise portal and into your collection! I always felt she was a stand out character in the series and from the overwhelming response the team got on the livestream the other day, all of you thought the same!
.
A welcomed cybertronian police woman and an appearance from the RID series is really what Legacy brings to the table. Now I know what alot of you are thinking, was the Elita One mold the perfect base body for this character. The team thought it would be great to have these two side by side with some similarities, they make a great team featured here. Also, just some more insight, some other concepts and ideas are always in flux utilizing different molds for pitches so availability and timing always play a factor.
.
Koki san from Takara Tomy really did a wonderful job making this partial remolding the very best it could be. Some screenshots I captured from the animated series look almost identical to how she turned out here.
.
I pushed pretty hard on trying to get all the deco I could for this character. In her animated appearance, there were definitely some details and colors that seemed to jump around quite a bit. Even alot of the promotional art and toys for her had so many things differentiated it was hard to choose the right direction. I felt the two tone blue was a must and the face deco came out outta this world. Noted for future reference, the factory had quite a time trying to live up to the highly complex deco on such a small surface. The design journey on some of these characters keeps me up at night :lol: !! The final look though is so worth it in the end!
.
Also, some of you may notice I’ve upgraded Strongarm here to an officer of the cybertronian police instead of a cadet. I feel she’s earned her stripes taking down the likes of so many crazy characters from that RID series. I’m excited to further make a solid police force with Prowl and some Autotrooper’s.
.

I'm picturing Animated Prowl and RID Strongarm with some Autotroopers investigating the deaths of G1 Prowl and Ironhide. 2023 toys are weird. :lol:

Now mix that Breast Force idea with Kiss Player & the Kingdom Blackarachnia style and you got yourself. ...

Mazinger Afrodai with mega boob torpedoes that transform into robot rocket dudes!

And have Megan Fox in lingerie say you suck at gaming in the commercial > Full circle

This is going to be an expensive wave for me, I'm getting everyone except Core Snarl. Trashmaster looks fun, Bludgeon looks surprisingly good for the minimal retooling that went into him (although I'm surprised they didn't paint the turrets on the sides of his feet, considering they were molded there for Bludgeon specifically), Detritus is pretty much perfect, my thoughts on Bombshell, Shadow Striker, and Dreadwing haven't changed, and Strongarm....actually looks pretty good? All her kibble's in the right spots, the head sculpt is spot-on, they completely reshelled the alt mode...my only gripe is that I just wish her head was slightly smaller for the sake of improving her overall proportions, as-is she looks small compared to her original design just because the head is too large.

Don't understand the point of that Core trailer set though, everyone I've seen who would consider it was immediately turned off by the price.

That's one thing that stood out to me with Strongarm, the head looks out of proportion to the body.

I dunno if that was posted before, but here's a "video review" of Nemesis with her whole transformation sequence showcased.

She's cool!

We have news that Transformers Legacy Evolution Nemesis Leo and Dirge have been found at Canadian retail. They were found at Gamestop stores, but not at the same time/locations, so they are shipping and arriving separately. The image below is from a Montreal location.

If you have found them, share your sightings with our community in the sightings section and on our boards in your region related thread.

Edit: we have been made aware that these have been found in US Gamestops as well.

Oh, I'm 100% considering it, but the only cause for pause on my end is that I already own a core Optimus. That said, the different color might win me over at some point :lol:
