We thank Seibertron users Immortal Starscream, Sabrblade and others for letting us know that Hasbro has written up a full profile on Orthia, the all fembot combiner. This article is on pulse and also includes some professional photos with their configuration. You can see the images below along with some of the article. You can read the full article here.

Led by Elita-1, this select team is made up of Moonracer, Novastar, Greenlight, and Lancer. They have a great power hidden within them that can only be unlocked when their unique sparks come together within a Combiner form.

When Cybertron faces its darkest days, Elita-1 and her team must combine together to meet their destiny and form…Orthia. The combination of their unique sparks infuses Orthia with the creation power of Solus Prime. This power gives Orthia the ability to forge immensely powerful weapons to be used against the planet's greatest threats.

Orthia stands up and fights when all seems lost. Her resolve has been forged in the fires of battle. Her legend steeled by the selflessness of sacrifice. It is in times of greatest despair that her greatest victories are won. She is light, she is hope, she is Orthia -- the fiercest guardian of Cybertron.

I like the photo of how Elita 1 is ptovidong air cover for the four girls on the ground. This almost makes me want to double back and track down the component members...

Almost.

I would rather have all the fembots not combine
And have them turn into their proper vehicle moded

Chromia's probably crying in a corner somewhere, but at least she has Ironhide to console her.

Having Elita-1 not be a jet would've been nice, as would having Nova-Star with her "pick-up" alt mode. But that's 2 out of 5, considering we've never seen Lancer and Greenlight's alt-modes, and Moon Racer is for the most part a stylized update.

She looks like she has ape arms in her combiner mode. Is she the mother of Optimus Primal?

looks like it's not just the moonracer that suffers from some of the wheel pegs not being fully formed. Still waiting for lancer to show but have still got to get green light and nova which may never happen as for the price I'd rather buy other transformers.

this is the really sad part of her sharing a mold with POTP starscream (one of the worst recent incarnations of my man screamer imho)

while she absolutely wears the mold better then starscream, the combined mode is still based off of the bayverse movie starscream, which I feel really hurts this set a lot.

well that and the fact that all the rest of the ladies are the same mold with all the good and bad that comes with said mold.

that being said, a well designed third party add on could really help this team out a lot. I have some ideas...

In my head canon, I use the idea of the Combiner Hunter set to tell myself that she is prejudiced and doesn't want to be part of a combiner.

Because the REAL missed opportunity here was to have Chromia as a limb not and LANCEr as a freaking lance-Battle Master. (And the arrangement of colors would have been way more attractive)

You've caught whispers. Maybe you've seen an Easter egg or two we've hidden out there. But now, you can dive in and discover the story behind the all-female Combiner, called Orthia. Your interest in this Combiner has unlocked a Teletraan-1 data file. Enjoy!

// Teletraan-1 data file unlocked //

COMBINER NAME: Orthia

TEAM NAME: Shield of Solus

POWER: Forge powerful weapons when team is combined

"In the darkest days, I am the light."

All know of the great and powerful Primes, the god-like bots who shaped the Transformers universe. And all know of the one called Solus Prime and how she forged the mystical weapons and artifacts the Primes used to battle elemental forces of evil. Those legendary weapons and artifacts remain among the most powerful objects in the universe. But known to only a few is her most potent creation: a fierce team of heroes, formed in her spirit to carry on her legend...

At the apex of creation, Solus Prime planted the seeds of a shared destiny within the sparks of five brave warriors. These protectors, united by common cause and uncommon courage, together form the last line of defense, a chosen few to be summoned in Cybertron’s greatest hours of need. They are the constant guardians. The unyielding defenders. They are the Shield of Solus.

'Orthia' - of Greek origin, meaning "straight". From the word "orthos".

[Definitely straight! :lol: ]

Im missing the last piece but for the love of all things holy Elita-1 is just not a fun toy to play with. I prefer them to be seperate. Im a little annoyed at how the tabs dont align as they should especially the legs. I might just hunt down Victorion or the Unite Warriors counter part instead.

Elita needed to be put on a flight stand for this and I personally find it wierd that they did'nt put the limbs out in release order. Moonracer, Novastar, Greenlight and Lancer. And put Chromia out the front as Elita's right hand Gal even of she doesn't combine so she can be included.

Nice. But I'm still holding out for the Perfect Effect 3rd party folks to make her a set of custom hands and feet. The default ones just aren't working for me - too 'butch' ;)

Just so long as they're more in line with Victorion's hands and feet, and don't needlessly transform (looking at you 2, PE and TDW), then I will gladly take a 3rd party set for Orthia.

I know the perfect add-on, and I'm not talking about Chromia:

Wait, can Seige Chromia also combine? And Nightbird? I didn't realize how many times this mold got reused...

Chromia and Nightbird are a different mold from the others. No combiner ports, either.

She can't because she's missing the Combiner Peg, and was never meant to combine, period.

The PotP Moonracer/Novastar toolings plus the Greenlight/Lancer add-ons are unrelated to Siege Chromia/Nightbird, aside from sharing minor parts like the thighs and maybe the hands. The latter is mostly new parts, differs in transformation in some spots and the type of joints is also different (swivels and universal joints vs. ball joints). Selects Tentakil on the other hands is a (borderline) retool, reusing the core body plus the peg, but changing out everything else. It's definitely noticeable in leg mode:

... with how parts are switched out 1-on-1.
