The Transformers: Battle Tactics app has updated, as well as provided us our first glimpse of what the upcoming Galvatronus combiner will look like once Voyager Class Cyclonus is released. (Cyclonus's torso mode features the head to Galvatronus.)

I'm not sure what to think about this.

Is Galvatronus going to be in the comics, or is this just something fun Hasbro is doing? I like Cyclonus' current role in the comics. So much depth has been put into him, and would hate he go status quo on us with Galvatron. Keep him with the Lost Light crew.

I'm not a big fan of the idea of Cyclonus being a combiner, and especially not a fan of him being called Galvatronus in combined mode.
Since I am more than content with my Generations Cyclonus figure, this new one is an easy pass for me.

Not even that. More like...excessive 'meh'.

Was anyone really surprised by this? He's the equivalent of the counter to Ultra Prime. That's all. It's possible he might get new limbs eventually like prime is but for now it's fine. It won't be in the comics, it's just a toy.

I'd be cool with a scourge limb maybe because then BOOM! Scourge and sweeps.

I would buy this if they made a Scourge combiner limb. That way I can add 4 sweeps to the main torso.

This has to be something goofy that Hasbro cooked up since he's time hopping with the LL crew and not having anything to do with the stuff happening with Galvatron on Earth.
I'm with you, this is just going to screw up everything they've accomplished with his character in the comics if they have him side with Galvatron especially if it's done for the sole purpose of giving legitimacy to Hasbros' dumb idea.

He won't be. Combiner wars is only a 6 issue event for IDW. The only bots from the lost light that are crossing over are the protectobots(which Im shocked they're being included in the comic). This is just a toy and that's all. Combiner Wars is going be a toy line going into 2016. It's a way to get a lot of combiners and just for fun. You don't like Galvatronus? Fine, don't buy Cyclonus or just keep him in his individual mode. It's like Huffer, windcharger, thundercracker, Megatron, Armada Megatron, Huffer and Bomshell. Just toys to go under the subtitle.

It's like throwing a fit were getting this and not other classic combiners. It's going till 2016, were probably going to see some of them later. Calm your tits people.

Never said I didn't like the toy idea. In fact it's a shame I see more Cyclonus in the pic, less Galvatron, but cool nonetheless. Just inquiring who is going to show up for Combiner Wars. Hoping we get Abominus, I know we got one during Prime's run, would like to see in this set, or better yet Predaking in the same way as Devastator, all Voyagers. One can hope and wish right?

It looks so little like Galvatron I don't really care what they call it. I'm totally sold on Voyager Cyclonus and probably won't be using his combined mode.

I'm a little more interested in his apparent mind control puppets running around at his feet. Is that Wildrider?

I wouldn't put a lot of faith in another Titan combiner. I'm not pointing the finger at you but remember when Metroplex was announced? Everyone and their mother was saying "well obviously we're going to be getting Trypticon, Fort Max, Scorponok ect." What did we get after Metroplex? Nothing not even a redeco of the Metrotitan or Necrotitan.

Devastator is a one and done thing like metroplex was. Could we get Predaking or Abominus? It's totally possible, but it'd be a voyager and four deluxes or we'll get at least one more original Combiner after the fan built team or...they will be the last one. Who knows. It's great we're getting combiners to begin with. Makes me think the only reason were getting combiners is because every character but a couple from 84-87 have now been modernized.

As much of a fanboy I am, I also look at these from the other point of view. If you make the predacons or terrorcons, can you retool/redeco any of them? Probably not so you're going to make those molds and use them once, or fun pub will use them someday for whatever crap they can think of. Or, you can play it safe and use the more popular combiners that can be retooled and repainted over and over like three of the protectobots being retools of stunticons and aerialbots which make sense. It's close enough. I won't be surprised if we get the combaticons and swindle is Offroads mold, vortex is a deco of alpha bravo and this is extreme but brawl is rook and maybe a new blastoff. It works. I'm a huge fanboy but I'm just happy with what we get.

Would it be more legitimate to gripe about not getting non-classic combiners like Landfill or Ruination? :grin:

You're right, the animal-based combiners are too individually specific for retool purposes.

Sorry Seacons, your not up to bat.

It does seem to be a decent-looking torso, at least.

I don't know if animal combiners are completely off limits. It's not like they can't just repaint them, give them new names and call them Autobots. There are plenty of Autobots with animal themed names and it's not as if all of the CW figures are based on established stories. Repainting the Predacons and calling them Chainclaw (Razorclaw), Catilla (Rampage), Sky High (Dive Bomb), Groundbreaker (Headstrong), and Gunrunner (Tantrum) would be fine with me. Bonus points for all five being Pretender names. ;)

I... really like this! I'm as surprised as anyone.

It just looks like a super solid torso. Whether we get proper limbs for him in the form of Sweeps or, even better, a deluxe Nighstick is an open question, but I'm on board. :D
