TFW's Combiner Wars Optimus Prime In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 01-31-2015 at 02:35 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Optimus-Prime-Robot-12 Wrapping up our photo gallery coverage of the first waves of the Combiner Wars, we're taking a look at the big bot himself, Optimus Prime! Combiner Wars Optimus Prime is a Voyager Class version of the Autobot commander with inspirations from the current IDW comics design (as well as taking cues from Transformers Energon Optimus Prime and maybe even the Powermaster Optimus Prime / Ginrai).

Optimus Prime is very much a toy. He's big and chunky, and has that certain "larger than life" feel to him - the kind of feel the Autobot commander usually gets in fiction. Poseability is good, and you can squeeze a bit more lateral arm movement out of the toy by unclipping the shoulders in robot mode. Optimus has two blasters, one based on the iconic Ion Blaster, which combine into a larger weapon that looks good held in two hands, or held by the gigantic Ultra Prime combination.

Ultra Prime is a cool extra for the toy. There's some great points on it, such as Optimus' hands providing 5mm sockets for shoulder mounting weapons, as well as the chest details featuring a very Transformers Energon looking Matrix. On the less pleasing side, the legs are a bit awkward thanks to the way they transform, and while there's scope to adjust them to suit your taste, they are the weakest point on the design.

Overall Optimus is a cool design and worth checking out, either as himself or as one of his upcoming redecos / retools including Stunticon Motormaster. For now though, please enjoy our gallery at the link below:

Transformers: Robots In Disguise Mobile Game Update

Posted on 01-30-2015 at 10:45 PM by SilverOptimus under Robots In Disguise (201x)
Transformers-Robots-In-Disguise-Mobile-Game-Update A new update is available for the Transformers: Robots In Disguise Mobile Game. This update brings several new features including a sneak peek at the upcoming Comic Book and New Characters from the show.

We've noticed that the update is not available for every country yet and is not available for certain devices as well; indicating a staged rollout. Lots of design features are added, with better performance and shorter loading times.

Warning! Unfortunately after updating, the game progress goes back to the beginning (Yes, the entire game resets) and this is something you need to watch out for.

Cutscenes are added before and after missions so that there is a storyline going on, instead of just going from one mission to another. So, people who are highly sensitive to Spoilers should avoid playing.

The official update description:

***Transmission From Cybertron***
  • Updated Interface
  • Power ups are now easier to pick up
  • New languages available (Polish, Turkish, Czech, Slovakian, Hungarian, Romanian, Swedish, Danish, Finish, Norwegian)
  • Added mission finished sequence
  • Added comic book story images
  • Added many more unlock codes. Keep searching!
  • Minor tweaks and tune-ups continuing to improve the app

You can grab the game from the following locations:
Android: Google Play Store
iOS: iTunes Store

Transformers: Windblade Interview with Mairghread Scott

Posted on 01-30-2015 at 03:01 PM by Matty under Comics
windblade3 Comics Alliance had the opportunity to sit down with Transformers: Windblade writer Mairghread Scott for an interview about the upcoming Combiner Wars comic storyline.

As always, if you want to remain completely surprised and spoiler free, be safe and skip the rest.

The interview dives into the background of Windblade and her mini-series comic, her tie-in to the Combiner Wars, as well as what lies ahead for the popular fan created character. We've already received confirmation about Windblade's future, but for even more reassurance Scott once again confirmed what we all want to hear:

Comics Alliance: What plans do you have for her going forward? Is it right to say that the book will be continuing onwards as a series, even after “Combiner Wars” wraps up?

Mairghread Scott: It is absolutely right to say. Transformers: Windblade will not only continue after “Combiner Wars,” it will be dealing with the events of “Combiner Wars” for a long time. As far as plans go, I have way more plans than I should, for a lot of characters.

Almost none of them are nice though.


The Combiner Wars will start in March, who's ready to find out what Scott is hinting at? Make the jump to discuss your thoughts!
