Site owner Seibertron is once more on the field at San Diego Comic Con 2015, and has been perusing the Hasbro booth - which has added more figures since the Preview Night gallery (found here). Most intriguing? The fully combined Victorion fan-built Combiner debuting in the Combiner Hunters one-shot from IDW Publishing!

The combiner reutilises previously seen molds, such as Alpha Bravo (two of them! they're twins!), Voyager Hot Spot, Breakdown, Dead End and Legends Groove - though all in a unified colour scheme with red, aquamarine and silver accents, plus a massive combinable sword and new hands and feet add-ons. Check out the images below.

G2 Superion!!!

Also, it seems they all get new hands except for Groove. Breakdown, Hot Spot and Dead End/Wildrider all have new open hands while the Alpha Bravo twins get new forearms entirely. Hasbro needs to mass produce that sword and those hands and feet and get them out there for all the combiners. While I'm one of those people who don't mind the standard hands and feet, these new ones look great. Especially those new feet. I really like that color scheme too. It's like a G2 figure, it's so gaudy that it's beautiful. The new heads and chest plates came out nice as well. I can't wait to see this done in molded plastic instead of the paint, they're going to look so much better than they already do.

Wow, just wow. Looks like a few new head molds to go around (I think). That sword is amazing as well. Only problem, the colour scheme, but it also doesn't help that it's shiny at this point.

Also, I see you G2 Superion...

Well, G2 Superion confirmed. Rated X, you get your Golden Slingshot.


EDIT: As for the big woman herself, while I'm not really into fembots, I'll pick her up because she looks cool, and I'll probably give her hands to someone else like Maximus or Superion.

I am sure it will look less shiny when they use molded plastic instead of paint. I am confused with the twin alpha bravos though. WIll Hasbro just be releasing the same toy under two different names on the packaging?

I'm sorry, but that colourscheme looks plain bad.

I'm not a big fan of the single bot modes, but I'm loving the Gestalt, so if I got the set I'd keep her in that

Also, that G2 Superion, just brings back bad memories of my G2 Slingshot, and the curse of Brittle Gold Plastic Syndrome

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.

The twin helicopters aren't exactly the same. They have different heads and their Autobrands are on opposite sides of their chest.

I think people are too quick to judge. Bad paint job and bad lighting. I want to see the official pics and the actual toys before I decide if it's terrible. That being said, I wish they weren't all the same colors, but I'm curious to know what the fiction will be for these. Are they a special team? Did they all get new paint jobs when they started combining?

Also, if they've showed G2 Superion and Victorion already, WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO REVEAL AT THE PANEL!?!?!? :shock:

Look at it this way folks, the color scheme is very end of G1/early G2 colors and it is. It's not that bad when you think of the old predators, pretenders and power masters

Who's the motorcycle who makes up the breast plate (as in the character?) and, is it just the ligthing? Victorion's colors kind of hurt my eyes.

Ugh. That colourscheme is horrible (although the rough gloss paint isn't helping at all). As for the molds, the torso bot is kinda cool, but the limbs range from OK to GUH.

On the plus side, the sword is really cool, and so are the hands and feet. Though what they're going to do outside of combined mode I do not know.

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.
