TFW's Combiner Wars Skydive In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 12-22-2014 at 05:04 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Skydive-Robot-18 We've got an early Christmas treat to share with you, in the form of a gallery of one of the new glorious Combiner Wars Transformers! First up is Skydive of the Aerialbots - one of the Wave 1 Deluxe Combiner Wars toys, who can form either an arm or a leg for a larger gestalt.

Skydive sticks close to his Generation 1 predecessor with this updated toy, right down to the general transformation - though there is some clever "scissoring" of the legs when going between jet and robot modes. The general transformation is shared with the other Aerialbots. It's simple yet effective - my only critique is that the arms do not really tuck away. However, the robot mode is solid, and there are not too many sacrifices made for the sake of combining. The deco is good, though personally I'd liked to have seen the thunderbolt details of the original retained - the gold stripes do not have the same amount of punch, in my view.

Overall, Skydive is a solid toy, as are his fellow Aerialbots, who we hope to share galleries of in the coming days. Check out Skydive in our new Combiner Wars galleries section below and see what you think of this cool addition to the Autobot air force!

Combiner Wars Firefly Production Process

Posted on 12-21-2014 at 09:33 PM by Jacer under Generations / Classics
10613039_755115617891968_7068596877394342228_n Thanks again to the Official Transformer's Facebook page, we get a quick look at the production process of Combiner Wars Firefly! The image shows the progress of Firefly from the first sketches to grey prototype to the final design.

This is a follow up to Alpha Bravo which they did a couple days ago. What is interesting is that we have the same head design in the top right. Did they forget just to change the template or is there some more similarities between the two figures than meets the eye?

Discuss your thought in your discussion thread!

Combiner Wars Alpha Bravo Production Designs with possible alternate head design

Posted on 12-19-2014 at 03:30 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
10847621_748593971877466_5072151466422126161_o The official Transformers Facebook page has updated with a pretty cool compilation image that traces the evolution of the new helicopter member of the Aerialbots, Alpha Bravo. Alpha Bravo is a reimagined Slingshot, though the comics by IDW make him a separate character in his own right.

This image charts the progress of a Transformer design from the early sketches, through the grey model prototype phase and the color charts, right down to the final design.

The sharp eyed might notice, though, that there is a different head in the top right of the document to the one on Alpha Bravo. Alpha Bravo has a faceplate, a visor, and other details around the head are also different. Which begs the question - is this an earlier head design before concepts for the character went a different direction, or is this a stealthy glance at a potential alternate head for use on a remold of Alpha Bravo as Protectobot Blades - whose head features some of the design elements shown in the sketch, and others could be explained away as Hasbro's reinterpretation of the classic head design. There's also a red version of the helicopter mode right beneath the head - so could this be a tease at Blades?
