Combiner Wars Quickslinger & Brake-Neck Sponsor Update

Posted on 05-21-2015 at 04:54 PM by Sol Fury under Sponsor News
Quickslinger-Vs-004_1430374442 Just now, our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store posted an update to their Facebook detailing how the Combiner Wars Quickslinger and Brake-Neck will be made available. The update gives the pricing - $17.99 each - along with stating there will be a one-per-customer limit. Most important is that there is a solid release window for these going online to order, which is 12:01 am on May 22nd. If you miss that, don't worry - BBTS will be posting a second wave at 10am EST on May 22nd.

It stands to reason that other online stores who are also getting these - such as TFSource, and Captured Prey - will be putting theirs up for order at around the same time, along with Robot Kingdom.

TFW's Combiner Wars Defensor In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 05-21-2015 at 04:04 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Defensor-67 We've shown you the individual Combiner Wars Protectobots - but like any good special team, when they stand united, they become more than the sum of their parts. Rounding out our coverage of this great recent wave of Combiner Wars toys we have the gestalt formed of the five Protectobots - the mighty Defensor!

Fully combiner, Defensor is a solid robot - no hip issues like the Motormaster mold on this torso. In fact, the design of the combiner Defensor can best be described as a "wall" - his silhouette impresses the idea that if this guy is in front of you on a battlefield, he will hold the line no matter what. The individual Protectobots make fine limbs for Defensor, and special shoutout to the new guy, Rook, who aesthetically manages a shape similar to that of Groove, whose spot he took on the team (unless you are in Japan... ). Speaking of Groove, the Legends class motorcycle Protectobot forms a nice optional chestplate that locks in very solidly - no problems with him falling off like Blackjack.

Overall, Defensor is an impressive bit of Combiner, being a nice, big, solid robot, carrying on the excellent work of the individual Protectobots. As individuals or as a group, this assortment is very good - but we could say that of the whole line so far, really. Check out our gallery of Defensor at the link below:

Takara-Tomy Unite Warriors Groove & Defensor further information

Posted on 05-21-2015 at 02:55 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
4904810831747 Since the reveal of the Takara-Tomy Unite Warriors Defensor earlier today, there has been some confusion as to the nature of the release of Defensor and the all-new Groove who is accompanying the set. We have undertaken a translation of the preorder page on Takara-Tomy Mall in order to hopefully clear things up for our readers. The key points are that, yes, this set is a Takara-Tomy mall exclusive in Japan, and yes, Groove is a new mold for this set which is being said is "unattainable overseas", whatever that actually means. Since we cannot use a web translator on the images on the page, we've just translated the text immediately after the banners - check out our translation after the break.

Transformers: Legends Game Event - Best Of Episode - Me, Grimlock, King!

Posted on 05-21-2015 at 12:30 PM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
Me-Grimlock-King-Transformers-Legends The next DeNA Transformers: Legends event; Best Of Episode - Me, Grimlock, King!, is now live. This is the 2nd time this event was repeated. On June 1st, 2014 this very event was a repeat of the event which originally went live on May 17th, 2014.

ME, GRIMLOCK, AM STRONGEST! ME, GRIMLOCK, SHOULD BE KING!“ Over the course of several battles, Megatron and Shockwave have managed to get the idea into Grimlock’s head that, as the strongest Autobot, he should be the leader. "You always say that you are the strongest. Now prove it!” For the most part, Grimlock ignores this as he proceeds to smash in Decepticon heads, but the ideas linger.

“NOT FIGHTING BORING. ME, GRIMLOCK, WANT FIGHT NOW!” Tired of the lulls in combat after the Autobots drive the Decepticons back to their hidden base, Grimlock finally decides that the best way to keep the fighting going is to take over the Autobots. He and the other Dinobots make their move while Optimus Prime and Wheeljack are out on a mission, quickly overwhelming their teammates and taking control of the Autobot base.

“ME, GRIMLOCK, KING!” Now the “king” of the Autobots, Grimlock has the Dinobots begin preparations to launch a full assault on the Decepticons. Optimus Prime and Wheeljack, just returned from their travels, try to intervene, but are brushed aside by the mighty Dinobots. Meanwhile, Megatron and Shockwave prepare for the inevitable attack, looking forward to the destruction it will bring to their Autobot foes.

“KING GRIMLOCK LIKE KICKING DECEPTICON BUTT!” Can Optimus Prime stop Grimlock before he goes too far? Will Megatron be able to goad their new “king” into destroying the other Autobots? Find out in TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS - ME, GRIMLOCK, KING!
