We have seen in-hand images for the wave 4 Voyager of the Combiner Wars line, and now thanks to fellow Seibertronian blurrprime we have a video review of the figure too! Check it out embedded below, as we see comparisons with other truckformers and the Optimus Maximus combiner torso mode.

I can seriously see them repainting thisImage as Kup

coz not too long ago.....we had thisImage

both similarly looking pick up trucks, so hopefully we'll see a Kup not too long from now.

as for thisImage

how come there's no news of them repainting another stunticon as Sideswipe?

obviously there's thisImage

but we really need a CW Sideswipe, hopefully one'll happen....eventually :D

Considering the Rodimus chest piece and the white Prime (Ultra Magnus), I'm surprised they didn't try to make the '85 crew into a combiner.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Kup from CW, but again, without trying to offend fans of the characters, Ironhide and Kup just never really floated my boat. I'd like to see some repaints of Breakdown/Sunstreaker into the other Lambo bros.

I actually really like Ironhide, but I don't really get interested in Kup for some reason... :lol:

Agreed. I would like a "G1" Sideswipe and Red Alert, especially since Red was a Lost Lighter :BOT:

I would be seriously bent if we see any more autobot combiners before another scramble city decepticon team;

I don't care if they aren't beast combiners; make them up, or draft them from canon - I don't care - just give us more decepticons :CON: (and don't say tfss 4 - those are expensive exclusives - I mean retail releases)

Amen to that. More 'cons are definitely welcome. As long as they put in a 'con medic like Flatline we need a Flatline

Never heard of him, so I'd probably like him, really any :CON: would be a welcome change, I feel like I'm being smothered in goody-goody loser :BOT: I don't care about :BANG_HEAD:

Flatline is essentially just Generations Trailcutter with some remolded parts, but basically the same deco as is.

He's a G1-ized version of Movieverse Flatline:

I'd toss in Barricade too. He's already in IDW and pretty cool as a proud Decepticon police officer.

Barricade is another good choice. I would not mind a new G1 toy of him :BOT:

I'm sick of the goody goods too, especially when they overwhelm the Baddies.

We need a Flatline plus there aren't many Decepticon doctor/medics in toy form so it would be pretty good to have someone like that.

Barricade would be Awesome. Actually a whole bunch of Micromaster characters turned full sized bots would be nice. Brawl could pass as Bombshock with a new head and a colour scheme

I've cut back on buying toys but I totally caved for Viper because of the GI Joe/Transformers crossover.

Just finished up Defensor last week. I don't mind that Groove is the Legends figure. If he were a deluxe he would look really weird. I also think Rook is one of the most solid CW figures there are. The fact he can have a Power Fist (a la Warhammer 40K). His other gun is kinda crap though. I am disappointed that Groove can't really be configured into a weapon or arm-mounted shield. I really like the Defensor chest without him, but I don't really have a better place for him. Otherwise, for a number of reason, Defensor is my favorite combiner. He is solid, holds together well, has nice color balance, and is composed of rescue vehicles (I am a nurse IRL, so I love me some rescue vehicles).

I am really looking forward to the Combaticons so I can have 2 Autobots vs 2 Decepticons. I am disappointed that Blast Off isn't a remold of Alpha Bravo/Vortex/Blades mold. The windows on said figures look very much like the Space Shuttle's, and if they replace the tail assembly and arms, they could make a very convincing Space Shuttle. Having him just be a recolor of Quickslinger just doesn't do it for me.

I plan on getting Sky Lynx, but I doubt I will get his intended limbs. It is really dumb that Sky Reign has a bunch of cars for limbs. Also have all of the CHUG molds of all of his limbs and like them well enough. I kinda want to get doubles of some of the Aerialbots and repaint them as other characters. But I am not going to kid myself into thinking that would actually happen.

Yeah we need more 'Cons, it's annoying that the TFCC are getting a new con combiner. :BOOM:

It's a shame I can't make my Digibashes real, as well as making more Autobots, I am also doing Decepticons, currently doing the Skyscorchers as CW limbs

Michigan-based Twitter user Brian Dagley (@ShukuenShinobi) has not only found the entirety of the wave 4 limbs from Transformers Generations Combiner Wars line, featuring Sunstreaker, Prowl, Ironhide and Mirage, but has also shared some shots of the team along with Voyager Optimus Prime from the first wave. You can check out the figures in the images mirrored below, as they made their way from a Target in Sterling Heights - first US sighting - to Dagley's desk!

Mirage and Sunstreaker look great. Prowl and Ironhide... They do nothing for me.

I went ahead and pre-ordered Mirage and Prowl last night on BBTS. It'd be nice to find them at retail sooner than later, but I am not counting on it. Mirage was a must buy for me because I missed out on the Classics version.
Ironhide and Sunstreaker are an easy pass for me this time around, but that just allows me to save a little more for the Combaticon wave when it comes around.
