Very much torn about the Ultra prime combiner and the associated limbs. I'm hating the over abundance of the repaints in this line but at the same time, the novelty factor of the overall combiner is drawing me in. I might actually even go so far as to buy the whole thing, Huffer included even though I know full well I'm going to bitch about it at the same time I'm admiring the combined form. How messed up is that? 8-}

Torn on this set. I like the vibrant colors from the Menasor, and I have enough white already with Superion. I wish there was more color in Defensor. Tough call on whether or not these will be added to the rest of my combiner wars so far. Very happy with the figures and combiner mechanisms so far though without question.

i would rather have a voyager ironhide figure but having ultra prime combine with his fellow autobots would be cool too

Put a pre-order in for Cyclonus and he will replace Universe Cyclonus.

Changed my mind and now I'm passing on everything else from wave 2 onwards because of the arms modes. For me Dragstrip is the only Deluxe from the first two waves that can form a proper arm mode and I don't like mis-transforming the others to make them look right.

Goodness!!!

Cyclonus looks awesome, just sold my Henkei one, soo replaced.

Why does First Aid have an axe? He's like the sweetest of the protectobots out there.

I have no problem with Ironhide being a head retool/repaint of one of the combiner suv/van things.
Didn't like the Universe/classics version and love Combiner Wars, so. Well, I'll be buying every limb/torso bot for sure anyway. Not sure about all the legends, but damn, these also look amazing this time. Great scale choice Hasbro!

Now if only they made a 12 episode OVA about combiner wars, cell animation not the soulless 3d stuff.
And a bit more Gundam 00/Seed/Wing serious :D

Thanks for the pre-order link. Ordered the entire CW wave Three. Got one CW Defensor with Groove and Cyclonus.

Paying under $100 for each Six member CW team. Is galaxies better than paying $400 or $600 for a Third party combiner team.

Speculating these CW combiners will be hard to find in stores when their first released like FOC Bruticus and CW Wave One is. That's why i'm ordering them all online.

BBTS says CW wave Three will be in stock in April. Guessing CW Wave 5, That is the rumored autobots Masquerade Fakesaur. Will be in stock in May-June.

Speculating this is good news for those computer listings that had CW Computron and CW Bruticus in them. Thinking These toys will get released in Spetember-October. Calculating it should be quicker to make and release these toys as most might be repurposed earlier CW toys.

That Ironhide looks great but I'll be very disappointed if we don't get Ruckus from this mold as well.

Don't mind CW Ironhide and CW First aid not being vans. Prefer the Pick up truck and Hummer vehicles as they look meaner, stronger and a nod to the movie vehicles.

Speculating CW Rook will get repurposed for CW Brawl and CW Nosecone. Guessing CW First aid will get repurposed into CW Swindle.

Courtesy of fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999, we have a video review of the final deluxe of Transformers Generations Combiner Wars wave 2, and the last (as if it matters) member of the Stunticon team - Dead End (I guess). Check out thoughts and video below (like, whatever)!

Dead End is a fantastic figure, and easily one of the best deluxes that has been released under the Combiner Wars line thus far. Transformation is unique, featuring a hinged door below the knees that secures the entire back half and lower arms in car mode. A very easy recommendation.

Sorry, when you mentioned seed I kinda threw up in my mouth. Seed was overrated rubbish (as a whole, first series itself is okay but destiny destroys everything) plus 00 and seed used a fair amount of computer animated animation.

I'm all for an animated combiner wars though (based on IDW comics of course)

Good to know that Dead End is a solid figure. Makes me even more itchy for my pre-orders to arrive.

Makes me think of the "jaws of life" tool emergency workers use to crack open vehicles to rescue trapped passengers

@zerowolf,
I enjoyed Seed & 00. The main robots weren't 3d models ;)
Yes Destiny was a letdown, still I enjoyed certain parts of it.
What's your favorite mecha animé?
Besides the obvious Neon Genesis answer of course.

Jaws of life, I thought you were going for that bone saw to crack open chestbones. But that other one sounds less violent.
Or they could't given him those Sideswipe punch things as electric shock reviver things.

I'm all about the things today.

Can't wait for my Megatron to arrive, it's taking forEVER! :michaelbay:

No problem.

Also, Why do you skip wave 4? Wave 4 is the autobot combiner team.

God, that Cyclonus looks horrible. Lousy altmode (top bit looks dynamic but then it's sleekness is destroyed by all that blocky crap underneath) and the robot mode just looks like junk. Massive, massive downgrade from the Universe/Classics mold. And all this constant redeco/retooling in the line is yet more damage to the actual character's individualities. No decepticon or autobot in their right mind would choose to have the same body type and altmode as someone on the opposing faction. Fine if they're in a allied squad like seekers or whatever or the supposed 'siblings' of Sideswipe and Sunstreaker (though that never made sense for me in G1 since they didn't share the same mold at all and what the hell was Red Alert then? But hey at least they didn't share the molds between both factions like they've done since)

Oh well, at least Leader Megs looks great. I may get that and pass on the rest of the line so far. Was never fond of the combining gimmick to begin with.
Re: Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Wave 3 available for Preorder (1659638)
Posted by prjkt on March 6th, 2015 @ 6:40am CST
the original Red Alert was a Sideswipe re-tool, so the Henkei/Generations version was pretty cool for nostalgia value, and the Sunstreaker/Sideswipe pretool idea was a pretty cool concept.

I kind of like the idea of having nemeses amongst the Autobots and Deceptions - brothers fighting brothers etc, I can kinda deal with that level of retooling with that sort of head-canon in mind.

Is it just me or is the leader of the protectabots face showing in his ladder while in "fire truck" mode? In the official images currently.

Which brings me to my next 2 points.

Mis-transformations in "official" images. Who else is tired of them letting some mis-transform something then use it as the official image?

Secondaly that is the worst fire truck mold in a long time. It was clearly meant to be Onslaunt for the combaticons.Just like how Prime was clearly mean to me motor master. Or Alphpa Bravo meant to be vortex or the helicopter from the protectabots. I think its First Aid, not sure i never like that team so i have no clue what all their names are.

Dead End looks nice. But the grey on the side of the car sucks. It’s like an annoying difference Hasbro does on purpose just to allow Takara to produce a more cartoon accurate version.

Also, the weapon blows…literally.

Ahhhhh. Nothing goes better with that first cup of coffee, then people sharing what they DON'T like. Hey! look my coffee cup is still half full. :D
These Protectbots look like a bunch of fun to me.

Questions.
1. Is Streetwise a retool of Dead End? the only similarity I can see are his thighs.
2. What would everyone rather have for Ironhide, a repaint of Off Road or First Aid? I'm leaning towards Off Road's truck style. Seems tougher than an ambulance.

Another thought, what if Prowl is a repaint of First Aid? He is an SUV in the comics now, correct?

Weeelll, they got me. Preordered the whole Protectabot gang. Saves me the trouble of trying to hunt for them whenever they may show up in stores. Even got Cyclonus too. Was on the fence, but right now, the only way to order Hotspot was with him so I bit.

The only one I didn't order was Warpath. And Tailwind, er, Viper because there's no separate listing for him :-(
