After the preliminary images of Hasbro Transformers Combiner Wars Victorion, site owner Seibertron provides us with a better quality gallery of the new combiner and her six different characters that form the gestalt - all of whom are still unnamed, though we may find out later today. Check out a small sample below, and click on any of the images to view the full works!

Can't blame Hasbro, we(the fans) created her. Her name, gender, modes, and color scheme were chosen by us.

And what's you get.


Nobody asked for 2 exact same alpha bravo redecos. We said we would like to of the limbs to be jets or helicopters, it was either that or cars and trucks.



Well it's what your getting. Treat them like the old school g1 clones or twins or like cassettes or even the prime vehicons. USE YOUR IMAGINATION

The twins have asymmetrical paint schemes. They also seem to be mirrors of each other as well. So for those of you who don't like them, maybe you can take them apart and reassemble them so that the asymmetrical, mirrored pieces are all uniformed on the two of them. That way there's a chance they'd look less similar to each other with the reds and teals being in different spots on the two of them instead of being half and half on those areas.

It might be what you're getting, but I sure as hell won't be getting her. Aside from the (honestly kinda neat) torso bot, they look pretty dreadful. Not to mention that this makes, what, 5 uses of the Alpha Bravo mold with bare-bones retooling? And those colours...That horrible mouthwash teal and fresh-period-blood red...

Between Wave 2 getting skipped in the EU and the sheer amount of laziness with mold-recycling (seriously Hasbro, enough with the pointless '84 Autobot limbs and save the budget for more molds or better retooling for the actual combiner teams) I am fast going off Combiner Wars.

Something is not right about Victorion's colour mapping.
Overall though, she looks good. The molds and the new heads work well, and the colours-in theory-have their charm, but it's not working as is.

Biggest gripe-a retool of Bravo with new arms exists and it WASN'T used for Vortex??!! :-x

Kind of like how the Wheeljack chest wasn't used for Sunstreaker.

Is she wearing lipstick? (the heli-fembot I mean)

It's not just that the helicopters have the same color scheme... or that Alpha Bravo never gets anything more than a head swap across 5 different toys now... it's that they don't look remotely feminine. The torso figure isn't much better, really boxy. At least they managed a little something by adding to the Dead End & Breakdown chests.

This is just what I was afraid of. Maybe they should have overridden the poll results and chosen molds that were easier to feminize.

The head of the Dead End retool looks an awful lot like Nightbird.

Kunoichi Autobot!

And aparently, Hasbro can make a dedicated hands and feet if they want to. This should have been the case at the very start of CW line, dedicated hands and feet and combining weapons.

This is a special set given special treatment. All the other CW toys (sans Devastator) don't warrant as much attention given their ordinariness.

It's pretty neat one has a visor and another has a faceplate, as lady bots for some reason don't typically get little things like that. But overall this set does absolutely nothing for me.

Well no. Hasbro provided us with a tiny handful of options to choose from, and without any clue on how it'd fit together. Did people vote for two helicopters, or did Helicopter coincidentally win twice? We don't know.


Plus the color option seriously underplayed how prominent that red would be:

Oh god, it looks......hideous! :SICK: I mean, the groove redeco looks alright, I guess, so there's that. But who asked for fruit punch mixed with blue raspberry slurpee colour? Who? I can cross this one off the list. So far, the only things I'm looking forward to are Smokescreen, Trailbreaker, Sky Lynx and Bruticus.

While all fans didn't agree on the options, she is still decided by the fans via majority vote. Like it or not that's how it is.

I wonder when her release windows is and if she's a gift set or individual releases (I can't see it being individual myself mind, maybe that's why she's shown here next to Go Superion).

Only reason I ask is that here in the eu never saw Windblade at retail

Hey, I always mix those two flavors together! They make the best-tasting slurpee. :P

"Blood-flavored toothpaste" is a pretty bold color scheme. :???:

Looking on the bright side, this will save me some bucks for Bruticus and Sky-reign wave. Not really interested in Victorion.

Also, don't even tell me that that is a Sea of Rust colour scheme. No! Sea of Rust should be something not hideous. Fuck! This is bullshit. This is why fans shouldn't be allowed to choose colour schemes. They choose the worst option. And it's really evident here.

It does make a tasty slurpee. But mixing those two together on a Transformer is not ok.
