We are still missing a couple of limbs from Defensor, in terms of reviews, but the smallest Protectobot of the Transformers Generations Combiner Wars line has its own clip, thanks to regular YouTube reviewer peaugh. Check out below the embedded video for Legends Groove, the leg-humping, chest-hugging motorbike in the line!

He has also posted reviews for Blades and First Aid, if anyone is interested.

And to round off the video reviews for Generations Combiner Wars Protectobots, Seibertronian Decepticon Sunstorm points towards some additional peaugh videos, showing off the remaining two figures: First Aid and Blades! Respectively retools and redecos of Offroad and Alpha Bravo, check them out below.

I really like the look of First Aid with the exception of the backpack. I also like Blades, because he's a retool of the Amazing Alpha Bravo, but neither of them are my main priorities. That honor goes to Hot Spot, Groove, and Rook.

So you are not necessarily getting the combiner as a whole?

Good news for Irish Combiner Wars fans, Hotspot and Cyclonus are coming in mid-June

Still no sign of Motomaster, Air Raid or the rest of the Stunticons

Of course I'm buying the whole thing. I'm just saying, if I was at a store and couldn't buy them all, then I would get Hot Spot, Groove, and Rook first, and First Aid, Blades, and Streetwise second.

Oh I see. Though I do suspect there will be some people out there who will only get hotspot.

You mean like just random limbs that you can attach anywhere? I like that idea.

But isnt that what they are doing with the remaining 4 deluxe limbs of 2015?

Sort of yes. If they're going with Fake Menasor then they've still got sort of a unifying team thing going on, but they're also not characters who are usually part of a combiner, so it goes both ways. It's certainly more random than the Aerialbots, Stunticons, or Protectobots, I grant you that.

Thanks man! I actually think they were never going for fake menasor, its just that a lot of autobots are cars and thus the stunticons are the best molds to reuse (although they could be reusing the retools of the protectobots too, which doesnt really make it fake menasor anymore). I think this was just a fun idea to make the most of this line and the molds and to attract kids and parents to the idea since they are more conscious of Optimus than any other character in this line. It's a calculated decision to them but not really a theme for hardcore fans, hence why it looks more random and "fun" to me.

I don't see why, because all of the Protectobots look fantastic.

This sounds legit to me.

The idea of 'fake Menasor' always seemed a little iffy to me. The fact that it was such and obscure episode... they are picking characters that weren't involved in that episode, and even in the episode fake menasor looked just like menasor... the justification never really sounded right to me.

I think a more realistic one was that a lot of other Optimus Primes combined in later series... and MotorMaster and Prime were both Semis...

Someone over there suggested that, rather than art for a future retool, it might be concept art for what became the Alpha Blades mold. Given the strange design of the combiner hand, I'm inclined to agree. And if anybody would have rockets on their arms, it would be Vortex.
