The next two galleries come with an eyesight warning - these are not the combiners your parents knew! Taking the Superion and Menasor sets as is, Hasbro has redecoed them, including adding the G2 faction symbols, into their Generation 2 neon, gold, wonderfully tacky incarnations - and you can check them out below as sample, with the full galleries here for the Aerialbots and here for the Stunticons.

Maybe they'll be in wave three of next year and they don't have anything to show for that far in advance. Since they didn't want to have just one voyager per wave, maybe they're releasing Scattorshot earlier than the rest of the Technobots.


You realise this response would be just as easy to understand without the sarcasm? 8) I was initially confused and posted as such. Is Betatron a new name for a combiner made of Scattershot and the 4 G1 cars, or is it the new name for Computron due to copyright? If so, where is the rest of Computron?
Your post clears part of that up, so thanks :)

I think Victorion in molded plastic colors is going to look amazing. New feet and hands? Hasbro is listening.

The G2 redecos are sweet and something desirable for collectors.

I'm not even a staunch Combiner Wars advocate and I think they did a great job.

(Except Scattershot...that could have gone better. I do think the limbs are forthcoming though. I just hope they are club exclusives because your collective rage is delicious.)


Not sure that last line is necessary, dude :-( The G2's and Victorion not withstanding, (G2's are self explanatory and Victorion was obvioulsy re tools from the poll options-and I have no problems with any of them) I see nothing wrong with being disappointed that what started as a great line with Superion is quickly descending into 2-3 years of the same molds re-hashed over and over.
It's been a long day full of bickering and I just don't see the point in everybody keep jumping on each other. Pretty sure negative views on a product are still allowed.
I have TT's Defensor on pre-order, after that my only interest is Bruticus; and even then I may go for TT if Blast-off is a new mold because I need some variety. After that, I'm not that fussed.

Potential Technobot reveals at a later date may change that, but I'm guessing they will be more re-tools. Scattershot already is and I have no interest in him as he is. May not be the happy jingle of celebration everybody wants to hear, but it's the truth. :BOT:

I AM happy to see G2 Menasor join Superion, but it's not something I can afford, especially when, through no fault of it's own, it's yet more repaints of molds I will already own most of twice as it is. I want Victorion, but price and time of release will decide that.

That's Takara's department since they're the masterminds behind the Masterpieces, not Hasbro. And Takara only just recently announced MP Ironhide and MP Optimus Primal, and Hound's rumored to be the next one after Ironhide, so don't expect any more news to come so soon.

Well these look wonderfully hideous, hope they aren't all at that bloated price point, I've gotten all of my combiners for ~$70 so an extra 30 is NOT cool for the G2 figures, not sure it's even worth it for Victorion.

those new photos are fantastic, seriously, thanks to all involved.

Victorion looks better, but still feels like they are all lacking detail to break up that red.
The individual bots are lovely seeing them up close. My only real gripe since earlier today was the colour mapping, these photos prove I love the overall sculpts :D

G2 stunticons are tasty...

The Stunticon repaints look all right in alt modes so I'll probably pick up the 4 Deluxe cars.

They're box sets if I remember correctly, so unless you're going hunting on the internet, prepare for disappointment >:oP

one of those ironic idiosyncrasies I might exhibit as a tf collector is that though I'm somewhat disappointed by these releases as in none really interest me, I'm actually kinda happy as it gives me a breather to catch up with the rest. Scattershot might be of interest only if they come up with some new limbs... And never cared for or liked the g2 aesthetic, so the others are passes.

Between the combiner wars show and ankle tilts, hasbro might have its faults but I must admit that they seem to be listening more to their adult customer base.

Hope they decide to somehow sell the new hands and feet as upgrade packs.

Then I'll just use the funds I was putting toward Defensor for it, and sell any team members I don't want to those who do. :HEADHURTS:

With this G2 Superion announced, I'm getting ever closer to reassembling my childhood Generation 2 toys in modern versions. And while I hope G2 Devastator is in the works, I hope for the sake of my wallet it doesn't come out anytime soon.

Very underwhelming presentation....

I guess the Victorion reveal could've stolen the show if it didn't look like complete crap in high heels.

Eff it!

I would've been stoked if hasbro had been selling bags of triple-barreled shotguns and breakdowns gunblade at botcon for ~$5. I would've bought several >:oP

No plans for Beast combiners yet

Not true. I have a few friends with sources and CW Predaking is in the works, but no other beast combiners are... way to straight up lie, Hasbro. They totally could have teased us with that (but leave the identity a secret)

Would you have liked it if it had a third color for detailing? Like silver racing stripes, or other designs. I do think the limited pallet really undermines the grandeur of what this figure was supposed to be.

Yup. Known these guys for years. They see plans and prototypes and a lot of other stuff. They said the Titan Wars promo was an accident as Hasbro sent the artist the wrong concepts. Apparently Victorion was supposed to be more remolded with more whites and pastels

Wait wait

COMPUTRON/BETATRON'S COMBINED MODE IS LITERALLY SUPERION REPAINTED

HOW IS THIS IN ANY WAY ACCEPTABLE

That does it, I'm buying Quantron.
