Fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 was able to grab the third Seeker from the Combiner Wars Legends class line, part of wave 4 of the line overall which has been appearing at retail this month. There are some changes, it seems, so check out the video review below!

Skywarp completes the G1 Seeker trio quite nicely. Sure it's a repaint of Starscream but that was a solid mold, one I think is much better than the Classics Deluxe mold. Finding this online may be tough due to mark ups and scalping so an in-store purchase may be your best route.

I really wish Rodimus had flames on his chest and he could have his fins. Still he is a fun toy and I like him more the more I play with him.

As much as I'd like to, the chances are nil. Didn't Hasbro say at SDCC that any beastformers for CW weren't in the cards? They shot down rumors of Predaking and a Dinobot combiner. Which I suppose reflects on them not producing Terrorcons and Seacons as well.

Although, with any luck, maybe Titan Wars will show some reuses of the molds as a sub line, assuming any deluxe class figures will not be directly related to the Titan figure's function and won't be dedicated entirely to the suspected _____master systems. Fingers crossed for Technobots!

Hasbro shoot themselves in the foot by saying they won't make something the 3rd parties can rub their hands in glee and then go out and make things like Horrorcons, Terrorcons, and so on for quite some time.

They are already making them, this wont change anything. And people will buy them for 100$ a piece and then years later Hasbro will release their own version and then the 3p version will have a lower secondary market value. Nothing really changes from them saying anything.

No, for 2 reasons:

1. Hasbro already said there will be no beast combiners in the near future (at least 2 years).
2.They are instead releasing these dinobots under the generations Emblem:

They all have classic heads like this:

Then how do they explain Sky Lynx? coz he's a beast!(a mythical one at that), granted he only makes up the main body of a combiner! & the limbs are not beasts......but still!

I cant explain it. I can only tell you what Habro said. They said that any traditional combiners with beast alt modes you might have been expecting are currently not in development.

Well....I've obviously exposed a loophole right there!

It's either beast combiners all together like Predaking, Abominus (Legion redeco please), Piranacon and Monstructor, or Beast Wars combiners like God Neptune, Magnaboss and Tripredacus.

There's a difference between a torso, and an entire set of of 5, that would, logistically, have to be retooled several times to appease G1'ers and make a profit. Unless they have some clever use of the skylynx mold waiting for us, I think that was just a love letter to fans.

I love it: Hasbro puts tons of effort into Combiner Wars (and repaints), and special effort on Devastator. Fan poll for favorite combiner is created: Predaking (the one they didn't plan on making) wins. :grin:

Sky Lynx's altmode is a vehicle. The dinobird mode is his robot mode, so he can get around the "no beast combiners" thing.

And, when he was revealed at the panel at BotCon, it seemed like the Hasbro team just really really REALLY wanted to do Sky Lynx for some reason.

The only beast combiners they might do are the ones that don't exist? Doesnt sound like anything anyone would ever want.

But he wouldnt make sense as scramble city combiner since he was not done that way in G1. The only animal combiners Hasbro are leaving out (not including redecos) by not adding to this scramble city concept are Abimimus and Piranacacon. He will be released as a rightfully intended titan class figure (if you want the real G1 experience) in the years to come so I wouldnt worry about that.
