Fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg1999 has a video review for one of the latest figures in the Generations "Combiner Wars" line: Chop Shop, a retool of Skrapnel.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:It's interesting when obscure characters get an upgrade. Two years ago Chop Shop was the Minicon partner to Legends Megatron, and now the character has been upgraded as a repaint/remold of Skrapnell. The color pallet is a little flat making this figure an easy pass.

Technically, it's labeled as Combiner Wars, even though it's blatantly Titans Return, so...

In other news: my Shockies finally moved out of Charlotte! Not as good news, they only moved thirty minutes east, and delivery has been delayed from today to Saturday (unsurprisingly). :BANG_HEAD:

Same, I believe that all non-priority shipments are being done via truck to save space on the freight planes, so I guess that's one mystery solve. Though, if mine don't leave indy soon, mine'll be delayed until monday :HEADHURTS:

*edit: mine just left indy, will most likely be getting them saturday :KREMZEEK:

My estimated delivery has been bumped from today to Saturday also.

Why? Because...

A little classic Andy to pass the time while we wait.

No need, as you can read from the title, we have here a Generations Legends Class thread that is perfect for speaking of the legends class without having to divide anydiscussion during the transition :)

What about the wave 2 2016 combiner wars stuff (sky reign and wreck gar)?


Combiner Wars will run along side Titans Returns at the start. At least, that's what they told us in the second session in the Google Hangout w/ Hasbro. Ryan was in the first, maybe he can confirm that. (I'm at work and don't have my notes in front of me :P)

Well, it may happen at the stores depending on how quickly stock gets purchased, but I doubt they would send out larger waves comprising two series', that would really clutter the shelves or shortchange figures - neither of which would be good for the consumer :(

Early 2016 seems far too optimistic. Don't forget that there was that info sheet that one store showed that said the line would launch with Fortress Maximus and we still haven't officially seen that figure yet and probably wont until Toy Fair. Mid 2016, around June/July, seems far more likely.

Any overlapping will simply be old stock mingling with new stock, I can't see them releasing cases from both lines at the same time to stores. However I think Hasbro has learned a few things from our complaining when transitioning between lines this time. They typically change directions in the Generations line at the end of the year leading to tail end waves being understocked in favor of the next line as well as the entire franchise being understocked thanks to the post holiday glut when stores reset their aisles and clearance out old stuff. A mid year release would avoid that glut and if they have the timing down they can avoid CW 2016 wave 2 from being understocked in favor of TR wave 1.

But I don't really have a lot of hope for stores right now anyway. At least in my area they're really lagging behind everyone else. I've only just seen Ultra Magnus and Thundercracker in stores and the Protectobots are only just now being stocked even though I've seen the Autobot cars for at least a month now so they probably wont be stocked for long. Hopefully they get their act together next year.

WHAT?? Chop Shop's a pass? Shame on you! Of the entire wave, he's the one I am most excited about. Between Pipes being what, the 5th use of the Prime mold, and not being nearly as cool as the CYB Armorhide homage to him, and Buzzsaw's rediculous looking pylons in his bird mode... (I will probably regret not getting Shocky though, but I am a sucker for relative scale and I prefer the big Voyager Shocky from Prime over the Legends sized ankle-biter)

I feel like some of you guys are forgetting that the "Early 2016" labels are brick and mortar street dates. Yes, BBTS, TFSource, etc. have all gotten the W1 2016 figures in, but that's because when they leave Hasbro's hot little hands, they only go to one warehouse. It's gonna take another month or so for the Combaticons to trickle through a Brick and Mortar store's distribution from regional to state to local warehousing and then go to the stores.

I thought he was fourth:

Prime, Nemesis, Huffer and Pipes. Am I missing someone? What I find sucks about pipes and others is that my subconscious keeps bringing up that the very same mold sold for the same price last year and actually had a targetaster triplechanger with it.

So you would also count every japanese release of combiner wars molds for the same characters another use of the mold?

Well, people count the G2 redecoed versions of the same characters as well, so yes?

Unless you're only strictly speaking of Hasbro releases.

But arent the G2 characters different characters from the G1 characters even if they have the same names?

I a mainly using the mold use definition from tfwiki. For instance, lets look at animated ratchet:

The sprues for this mold included heads for both Ratchet and Ironhide, a later release in a new deco. It was later retooled to make the BotCon 2011-exclusive Fisitron and Autotrooper toys.


That line doesnt mention Takara Ironhide as another use of the mold even though the deco for that figure (which I can attest to) is similar to the difference between the generations takara optimus toy ou brought up compared to optimus.

Hold the phone. So G2 Optimus Prime (Laser Prime) is the same character from G1 Optimus Prime?

G2 Sideswipe is different from G1 Sideswipe. SO I just figured these were characters from that same G2 universe.
