So we've show you our usual high definition take on the recently released Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Voyager figures - Silverbolt and Optimus Prime - but how about we update that with an even better look at Superion, the Aerialbot combiner (with a limb that cheats in the form of Dragstrip)? Head on below, and click on any image for the full gallery! It includes poses, comparison shots with Classics, Generations, Legends class, Deluxe and Voyager, of course.

In addition, check out fellow Seibetron.com user chuckdawg1999's discovery regarding Dragstrip's spoiler and a tip about getting that leg mode to snugly fit like a warm, fuzzy Deceptisock - for some Scramble City re-enactment! It's right over here.

Good god, that Prime truck mode is fugly. The robot mode, not so much. What class is he?
Silverbolt and Superion, on the other hand, are not unimpressive. Strangely, the 1 I want now is that TFU Silverbolt...

This dude is looking damn good! Really impressed by Hasbro's offerings this year, and this caps off a great year for me. That's a fantastic looking Superion, without having to shell out 3P prices to boot.

The big badass gun that comes with Silvrebolt looks great on Superion, but lol @ the toothpick in the Drag Strip hand though. :lol:

The Aerialbots

I second that. With Turbomaster repaints to boot :DANCE:


That would be like...double good.

I don't have proper words for the kind of goodness that would be.

In my blackened heart though...I fear Botcon will do it.

Remember when we could get cool stuff like that from Target or Walmart as a Black Friday special?

Like the yellow RiD Landfill? I believe that's the only special repaint we got for that day, the rest were all special repacks.

My hopes out of the Combiner Wars toys? Inevitable G2 repaints of Devastator, Bruticus, Superion, Menasor, and Defensor (assuming we get 3 of those).

My expectation out of the Combiner Wars toys? Dinobots as a combiner finally. It's not something I want at all, but I think there's oddly a lot of fan demand for it. If we get a Predaking to battle "Dinoking" (or whatever they end up calling the combined Dinobots), I guess that'd be pretty cool.

Anyone else hoping they can take the Combiners Wars concept in a different direction and give us an updated Skylynx (he's a combiner of sorts) or Omega Supreme (parts combiner).

You know, I've wanted to see that concept in reality for a while. I'm a staunch supporter of the G1 Dinobots (especially comic Grimlock) and 1 of the things I always thought special about them was the fact that they were a team that didn't combine. However, just thinking about it, how menacing would a combiner made of Dinobots be? It would certainly be a match for Predaking, perhaps even more.

Gonna have to go against you on this 1. Those were 2 characters and toys that I always thought were the lowest in G1. I never had the Sky Lynx toy, but the character in both the cartoon and comics was annoying. Omega's character in the comics was passable, but in the cartoon he was almost pointless, and the toy was just dumb. I understand what they were trying to do, but IMO it failed miserably. It was not appealing to me at all. But, that's just 1 little kid's opinion. :)

"Menacing" is putting it mildly:

Very happy with the whole idea of the combiners. Hope we get Devestator, Defensor, Computron, and though we might not get him...Magnaboss. We also might not get my favorite Decepticon combiner, Bruticus, what with his recent release in the FOC bracket of Generations.

Meh... I hate to admit it, but Alpha Bravo is actually growing on me. I'm still going to buy the Beezleboss Slingshot that's coming out because I want it accurate and G1 as possible, but AB is definitely growing on me.

More money out the window.

Superion looks ok if you bend his knees and elbows. But standing straight he looks like crap. Uranus is a much better superion.

I should certainly hope so for a toy that costs 5.5 times as much ($85 versus $450)! A Lamborghini is a much nicer car than a Corvette as well, but the Corvette is still pretty damn nice.

Is it some sort of expectation that once a team combines, the gestalt becomes a much less intelligent being?

The combined robots brain is made up of 5 minds that don't 'gel' all that well and it causes confliction which reduces the overall intelligence. At least that's how I see it...

Superion looks awesome!

And I have him! Still need to do the combi transformation.

I love the line, best overall TF line so far imho.
Megatron is still underway :(

Are there any pictures of combiners other than Menasor/Superion? I read a lot of names, but those are only rumors right?

At the original prices plus the upgrades Uranus cost me close to $600. Hasbro is improving with each combiner but they really need to work on the monkey arms. And that flop coptor was an insult to fans. You cant tell me the coptor wasn't done on purpose as a "marketing decision". Do you support the coptor decision ? I know you wont buy it but how do you feel about the upcoming 3rd party slingshot ? Would you agree that sometimes hasbro can be their own worst enemy in that regards ?

It's not that that guy isn't smart, it's an all out monster. A psychopathic, barbaric, killing machine. Kills Autobots, Decepticons, you name it.

I disagree.
Obviously.

I think the Alpha Bravo dude wasn't a bad choice. If it was a jet and called Slingshot I'd be just as happy. And four jets who kind of look the same, I understand Hasbro's point of view.

I'm not bothered by monkey arms, but I can understand some people are.

I'll look for some comparison shots with Superion next to Uranus in combiner form.
But I always am in favor of Hasbro/Takara (a.k.a. real Transformers) bots than third party stuff.

But I do own Hercules, because they look good, great scale and solid bots.
Don't know if I'll keep him, have to wait for the Combiner Wars Devastator.
I have way to many robots for a small appartment and keep op buying -_-
