The last of Combiner Wars is here, as the line seems to transition into Titans Return - but some of the bridging figures are already out - and fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 has a video review of the Legend class triple-changing (!) Buzzsaw to offer. Check it out below!

Although the Titans Return line is over a year away, Hasbro is giving us a taste by releasing Buzzsaw, the minion of a character who's toy has yet to be announced. Which if made, will be released closer to a year and a half from now. Surprisingly, Buzzsaw is a triple changer with involved transformation steps between each mode, the highlight being the "Vehicle" mode that has a peg which allows Titan Masters to ride.

Pass. It's 'bird' mode which should be it's main form given the character, is just so horrendously designed. The original G1 figure looks better.

Buzzsaw is greatly executed. He looks really cool and he forms a titan masters skateboard. Pretty neat! :BOT:

What's the point of three modes if they all look awful?

The original Buzzsaw from Sound wave in the 80s and the one that came with War for Cybertron Soundblaster were the best. This one is just junk.

I'm beginning to worry that this wave wont reach general stores just like skids was impossible to find in the UK if not by buying the whole wave through specialized stores. Asides from the US hasbro store (which only shippes to US) it seems impossible to find the figures loose, and I'm not gonna spend <40$ for chop shop which is the only figure I want from the wave. Heck i'd rather buy 4 chop shops instead...

is this to be expected for certain waves? seems strange though for something coming out just before xmas to be on short stock... or is there little audience for chop shop, soundwave? How does this work? Am I missing something in which case can someone enlighten me?

@ Susha - I can't speak for the UK, but these showing up at HTS is the first we have seen of them.
There have been no reported retail sightings of these yet. Sometimes the UK (and Europe?) gets stuff before the States. Like some of the first waves of CW, but it's usually the other way around, no? It's kind of too early to tell.
I know you like your Legends scale, but I think you have time. I wouldn't worry to much just yet. ;)

Yeah that one still has a slightly blockiness to it's wings but it pulls it off far better than this new mold, actually looks enough like a bird and very cool in it's own right too. I kinda miss it. I had it for a while but got sold in a big cull of items due to bills and expenses. If I ever find it cheap at a car boot sale or charity shop I'm nabbing it.

So I ordered my Shockwave and others last Wednesday night, Thursday I got a shipping notice with the label created, but HTS still says they have not shipped yet. Anyone else having this issue? It's really frustrating me :BOT:

Probably still trying to swallow that pill, if you get my drift. My order's not quite here yet, but it is like three or four hours away in Charlotte, NC. Hopefully within the next three days it'll be here.

While it is very close and shouldn't take too long to get here distance considered (I got the slower free shipping), I'm just really upset that HTS says they haven't actually shipped it yet. It's like it's been sitting in the warehouse for 5 days :BOT:
