It's no secret that Hasbro planned for Legends/Combiner compatibility, but over the past week we have seen some great alterations to known combinations along with some great fan-made ones. Now Seibertron.com is happy to bring these great lesser known combinations to light!

To start things off, Kah Fei Shang has shown off Thundercracker working as a chest piece for CW Optimus Prime. This would work likewise with the other Legends Seekers (Starscream, Acid Storm and upcoming Skywarp), but what makes Thundercracker special is current turncoat status in the IDW comics.

Also, these Seekers should be compatible with CW Menasor, and might look especially fetching with a Skywarp chest piece!

Next we bring you a multiple Blackjack power-up to Menasor, thanks to Gikpa. While its not quite discernible how the pair of Jack's are situated on the shoulders, they sure give him a beefier look! If you're not interested in that bit of overkill, have a look at the alternate configuration of the chest Jack. It should connect the same way as the standard setting, but is a nice alternative to the "car parked on chest" look. Think about what this could mean for the upcoming Legends Rodimus!

Legends Huffer, Nemesis Prime, and Optimus Prime can all take a seat on the open chest cavities of CW Optimus and Menasor. It's as simple as positioning the Legends figures hands in a way to hold on to the two handles protruding from either Voyager's chest. How funny would it be to have Voyager Optimus combine with his Legends counterpart? Special thanks to Twitter users @FigureReviewers and @tsukumo_TF for the inspirational pics!

Even earlier Legends figure Skrapnel has found a way to clasp on the to Optimus/Menasor chest. Twitter user @frenzy_altron shared with his followers that he has the same method as Huffer and Nemesis Prime to hold sturdily aboard!

Hasbro's next stab at a Legends Insecticon, Bombshell pulls double duty as a Targetmaster and a chest piece. His gun mode is pretty self explanatory, and his hood ornament mode holds on like all his predecessors.

Saving the best for last, Seibertron's own Cobotron has come up with a great way to incorporate Legends Powerglide as a chest piece! Holding on to Primes chest pegs for dear life much like the others, he makes another nice addition to the hood ornament brigade!

In closing, you may have not been aware of the multitude of possibilities with these Combiner Wars figures and their Legends counterparts. A large number of mold sharing has made the options nearly endless!

If you have come up with something new, please share it! There's always new things to learn and things to discuss in our forum, The Energon Pub. Stop by and pull up a seat!

The first pic with Thundercracker on Prime's chest gives me a Road Caeser vibe.

Great to see you getting into more editorial bits and bobs here on Seibertron. ;)

I have noticed that the front paged Combiner Wars Fanmode Round-up doesn't display all the photos as they may have been hotlinked via various Social Media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter which a lot of work places and businesses tend to block as they don't want you having too much fun!

Any chance they could be hosted by Seibertron? :-?

Nice haul dude lots of goodies in there. Looking forward to your reviews :grin:

Don't do them like Peaugh just did recently with the CW Stunticons the reviews were pretty average at best.A bit disappointing.

Sorry Peaugh but our old mate Chuck did a pretty good job of reviewing Offroad today.


LOL! I kinda like peaugh's reviews. My reviews are nothing fancy to be honest. Uploading now, so any feedback is appreciated :)

Going back to the 'chest bots', I wonder if any 3rd Party has thought about creating a Powermaster type articulated figure to plug into Ultra Optimus' chest cavity?
This could offer a decent bot mode, some clever articulation and an aesthetically pleasing 'engine' mode for the chest cavity?
Just a thought. :-?

Once they're all released it looks like we're going to be in for some pretty sweet and/or completely ridiculous fan created Combiners.

A) Be split into separate shipments, sending Motormaster in 5-7 days, while putting off delivery on the Deluxes until 3/27-ish?

B) Hold everything until 3/27-ish, since it's one order, and you'll have to wait for ALL of them to be delivered once they are all available?



Held. And by that time they will be at retail.

Cobotron@ the one with prime wearing prime? Looks a little like a super ginrai to me ;)

I thought the same thing. :lol: I also thought if there was a white Magnus of that Legends, it would be a cool little nod to a City Commander situation.

In that case I may have to get a legends prime to become my ginrai thus ultra prime can become super ginrai. ..wwhat to do about God Ginrai though. ..

Come to think of it, Voyager Prime is begging for all sorts of attention.... :-?

-Powermaster and Godbomber additions
-Nucleon Quest/Black Convoy version
-Fire Guts Ginrai
-Energon homage limbs

I don't care who tackles it (Hasbro, Takara, Funpub, 3P) these need to happen!

I was thinking the same thing. Especially with car limbs. Similar, but not exact.

Looks fun. Makes it worthwhile to look into buying multiples of the legends figures.

I like the triple-black-jacked as well.

I transformed Bombshell very differently, it seems - more like the smart gun from aliens - but I can't upload the pic.

I know very little of GI Joe so if someone told me Human Alliance Icepick was a GI Joe crossover, I'd believe it. Sure looks like one.

Then again, if you told me it was an NHL crossover transformer, I'd believe that too.

I vill vait and see if Viper hits Marshall's down the road, so zhat I might get him for $5.75...

So now we have incentive to army-build with other legends besides Skrapnel? Curse my being too patient on Nemesis and Cliffjumper!
