You might remember that exclusive sticker sheet that Hasbro Asia was promoting as a purchase incentive for Combiner Wars figures - thanks to YouTube reviewer TeamSKLeader, we get a nice look at this official add-on set, and find out its flaws and pros. There is a full list of videos showing them applied to the different figures, but the one embedded below shows the whole set, and general thoughts by our fellow fan!

Looks like a nice freebie.... but I gotta say I am LOVING the ones I got from Reprolabels a LOT more. Skydive was already my favorite combiner from this set... but the added details on the chest and arms really popped.

These... I don't know. They're ok, but they don't do much for me. Maybe the Silverbolt or Alpha Bravo ones since I don't have any add ons for them... yet.

Paid worse in this hobby, but I don't mind the looks of Bravo or Offroad and am perfectly happy renaming them. I do kinda want Slignshot though, since I have a thing for Harriers


CapturedPrey.com has Brakeneck and Quickslinger for pre-order at $18.00 each. I pre-ordered one of each and with shipping, just under $45.00 for the two. Compared to what I normally pay for 3rd party figures, $45.00 for two Deluxe Class figures is chicken feed.

I think they might have to basically make all the parts of each for that and then melt back down the unused parts, depending on what parts are on what mold sprue. Just a guess.

And I remember back when just getting a new head was something special. And even to back before that, to when it just plain didn't happen at all.



Yeah, but I'm greedy now :grin:

The biggest Issue with the decals is that they are the flat gray, and the overall quality of them are fairly mediocre. I have them on Superion and Menasor, and while they do look quite nice, closer inspection really shows the flaws that they have. Also of note, Prime does not have a set for himself. Only the Aerialbots and Stunticons do.One more note is that here in Singapore, the 'official' way to get them is to buy $50 worth of combiner wars figures in one batch. So while it technically can be considered a freebie, its actually a bit expensive in practice. >:oP

Strange question, but if anyone has Breakdown in hand... is there a way to transform him to better look like Sideswipe? If they're repainting him, I'd be really disappointed if he didn't have the classic car hood chest.

But Sideswipe is not one of the '84 Autobots who are getting CW figures. Only Ironhide, Sunstreaker, Prowl, and Mirage are.

I think I'm going to wait until BBTS or TFSource gets a hold of these guys. $65 for two additional figures I "technically" don't need is a bit too rich for my blood.

Here's to hoping Amazon gets a shipment.

OH! Guess I had Sunstreaker and Sideswipe swapped in my head due to the old G1 episode Masquerade. Thanks.

Nope, his chest doesn't do Sideswipe nor Sunstreaker. Only Dragstrip can turn around, of the Stunticon limbs.

Also, I found a better way to make Ultra Prime:

I'm still waiting for Motormaster, Huffer and Blackjack to arrive in Malaysia, and hopefully the stickers too. It would just be a few hours to Singapore by bus, but I'd wait and see, seeing the dismal reviews of the stickers...

One way to store your feests!

Image

Cool turret.

Another way to pimp Optimus Prime. I imagine you'd be able to pull out Menasor's horns for Motormaster, too!

I may be in the minority here, but I've never liked stickers much, and I think the Combiner Wars fires I have so far are fine without them.

Great. I just got myself the Complete Allspark Almanac, but once I get some more cash, that's gonna be my next...

...They're gone already. :BOOM:

Damn. I was looking forward to Wildrider. And I'll bet that 25% of the reason that they're all gone is scalpers.

Literally everyone whose been clamoring for Slingshot and Wildrider, and have known that they'd be exclusives from the word go, has officially given up the right to bitch about the prices. I.E You wanted this, now you've got it.

So, I got Drag Strip.

He's a great figure with a fun transformation, not unlike Alpho Brava's (Who I got last week).
His weapon is cool, and his hand/foot has some nice wrist-weapon molding. (Reminds me of a railgun.)

His alt-mode looks nice, though it obviously doesn't scale with a helicopter.

I have only two complaints, both probably down to QC.

His combiner joint is REALLY HARD TO GET OUT. I need to use clippers to get it out.

Second is the paint. His small forehead crest is sort of blotchy, and a bit of his face;s paint (near the visor) is missing. His dark-magenta paint doesn't match up with the magenta plastic (though it isn't really THAT noticeable), and it too is a bit blotchy at times. Last but not least, his cockpit's black paint is a teensy bit sloppy as well.


All in all, I give him an 8.5/10, as compared to Alpha Bravo's 9/10.

I wouldnt blame the scalpers. It doesnt matter either way. These are exclusive AND limited items (Hasbro is not making as much of these as the other limbs). And there was a great demand amongst fans. Takara's TF Adventure Nemesis Prime sold out in a day and he didnt have as much demand so why wouldnt this set sell out as fast? Any fan who wanted these bought them as soon as they were available. It's fine to not like the price and hesitate but this is what happens. I wouldnt blame anybody for it (except myself for hesitating).

That said, I am sure other online retailers will have these too. But take note of this and don't hesitate next time unless you are ok with not owning it. There is no way these will ever go on clearance.

It's not prices I'm annoyed by so much as the disappearing act. There isn't even a "sold out", the listings themselves seem to be gone.

The again, I'm not exactly one of the clamorers, I just want them because they go with the rest of the Combiner Wars "Scramble Nation" (I'm trying to make "Scramble Nation" a thing) figures.

Some of us didn't hesitate. Some of us just missed the window.

Fair enough, I missed out on TF Adventure Swoop as well. But I didnt blame any scalpers for an exclusive item selling out (Japan exclusive in this case). That's all I wanted to say.

Since then I learnt my lesson and kept up to date every day on the availability of figures either by keeping a close watch on online retailers or this news site (which becoming a staff member helped quite a bit). And I would recomend everyone who missed out on these to do the same like that they dont miss it when these figures are available at another online retailer. Seibertron will let you guys know the next time they are available so please keep a close eye on us.

Yeah, since this listing came and went, I have bought some insurance by getting the Takara United sets on BBTS. I figure if the preorder for just Slingshot and Wildrider ever happens, I will cancel my preorder for the Takara United sets.
