While Seibertron.com has provided a bunch of photos of the newly announced Combiner Wars figures, showcased at the US Toy Fair, we now also have a video for you. The first video shows what was found on the showcase floor, which includes Defensor, Ultra Magnus and the new Legends figures. The second shows the assembly of Leader Magnus' Hammer.

UPDATE: We have also shared Seibertron's video showing how Minimus Ambus and Ultra Magnus interact with each other, mirrored below.

Well damn. As much as this line is irritating the heck out of me I may actually have to pick up a few of these. Viper is an instant buy-on-sight figure just because of my love of GI Joe and the Warthog. Prowl looks cool enough that I may actually have to pick him up just to replace my current Generations Prowl but I can do without the rest of the Protecobots. Yes, i know that isn't "Prowl" in the pictures but come-on. You all KNOW that yes, that is indeed what they are going to give us as Prowl. I'm a bit irked that he doesn't look anything like the IDW prowl but it looks better than them repainting Rook and passing him off which is their only other option since they are too lazy to give him a new mold.
As for Magnus, I was excited when I heard the news but the thing suffers from the same SHS (Shrunken Head Syndrome) as Devastator and the cab looks like a bulldog or pug that chased after a parked car at full tilt speed and caught it. The minimus (yes, I left it lower-case on purpose) figure, at first glance, looked like one of the Prowl mini-cons but after closer inspection is far more underwheleming than that so I don't have to worry about missing out on adding that one to my collection of Mini-Cons.
All told, I'm not nearly as impressed or excited as I should be about this line. I thought Hasbro was going to step up their game for this line and actually coordinate with IDW and make this whole "Combiner Wars" thing an actual Event. I'm just not seeing it, not the coordination with designs nor do I see the IDW story taking the absurd twists it would have to go through to keep the designs in line with what they already have established. This is FAIL central and it has only just started with absolutely no logical way to straighten the mess out.
Do it right or not at all Hasbro. We're getting sick of the mediocre results for the last 10+ years.

And "Megatronus"? Really??? With Cyclonus as the body? Can somebody say "Random Drug Testing"?

You want to do a truly "out there" combiner that has nothing to do with anything but will still make folks snatch it up like dime store candy? Give us a Megatron combiner with limbs resembling his past iterations. War Within and Armada style tanks for legs. A G2, Voyager size Tank for the body, Cybertron and Beast Wars styled arms and Beast Machines Megabolt for the Head. THAT is what you should have done instead of that insanely shiny Leader class creation you gave us.

If I had a dollar for every name I heard for the combiner made with Cyclonus today, I'd have a lot of dollars. Not entirely sure they officially said what it was, though I may have just missed it. Info overload in my brain right now!

Honestly, so far from everything at toy fair, this is the only thing that scares me, because what does this mean for the comics.

Pardon my wha? moment. Cyclonus is a combiner too? So not just a retool of Silverbolt without the combiner element but an actual combiner? #-o

Verily.

I mean, Megatronus would be more in keeping with the current theories of the Thirteen, and the Enigma, and Galvatron sort of taking over stuff and Optimus going Ultra Prime to stop him.

But why Cyclonus?

Unless, of course, these toys have nothing to do with the storyline by now.

Yup.

Voyager Cyclonus (looks fantastic) going to combine to make Galvatronus

I think it's a mix of "directly related to story" and "cool repaints we can do to throw out some additional IDW characters just because".

MP Magnus is G1 Magnus
CW Magnus is IDW/Modern Magnus

I actually prefer the appearance of this guy, so I guess I'll have to start saving up.

Yeah, that was the second part of my line of thinking too.

Just had some good timing on the floor to grab that demonstration and figured we'd share it, even if it isn't the most mind-blowing thing. Haven't seen much material about it elsewhere either, but yeah, just wanted to post it for the heck of it :)

Speak for yourself. =;

It's one thing to have incredibly negative/critical opinions, which is your right, but it's another thing entirely to pretend that somehow, those opinions are representative of everyone here.

It doesn't not make sense... I dunno. I don't need Cyclonus to be a combiner, but if he were, well, something either Unicron or Megatonus related would be totally baller. :CON:

Yes, agreed!

One thing I was just thinking is that I love how a lot of these appear to be finished products, molded in the correct color plastic with paint apps, rather than fully-painted prototypes. Which *hopefully* means that we can expect the actual releases to look just like this, and not lose 1/4 of their paint apps on the way to production. And it might also mean that these will be released sooner than one would expect. :D
