Transformers Facebook Teases Combiner Wars Quickslinger & Brake-Neck - Update: Fully Revealed!

Posted on 03-24-2015 at 04:09 PM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
0 The official Transformers Facebook page has just posted something many fans will be delighted to see - following up on our news from yesterday, they've now teased the rumored and highly-anticipated Combiner Wars Quickslinger and Brake-Neck, who are the renamed Slingshot and Wildrider.

The photo that's been posted reads "The rumors are true." They also say "Yes, they’re coming. You know the names: Brake-Neck and Quickslinger. Want to see the faces?" This also gives us a peak at the figures' packaging.

A few TFW2005 boards members - artiepants and Shin-Gouki - also put the image into Photoshop, giving us a small glimpse of their vehicle modes. As many had been expecting, it looks as though Quickslinger will be a redeco of Firefly, with Brake-Neck being a redeco of Dead End. You can see for yourself after the break!

Keep an eye out, as it looks like we may be getting a full reveal soon!

Update: Aaand that was fast - they've now been fully revealed, confirming our previous speculation:

"Ask, and you shall receive. Here are the Generations Combiner Wars Quickslinger and Brake-Neck. They’ll be joining the battle and hitting online retailers in May!"

Mark your calendars for May, folks! It also sounds like they may be online exclusives - we'll keep you updated as to which retailers will be carrying them if so!

Diamond Listing - Combiner Wars Slingshot and Wildrider

Posted on 03-23-2015 at 02:39 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
unwarsuperion9_1424037410 Friend of TFW D-Drive has sent us some truly awesome news! It seems like a Generations Slingshot and Wildrider - using the names Quickslinger and Brake-Neck - might be on the horizon and arriving in our collections this side of the summer!

While searching the Diamond site I found these 2 listings.

TRANSFORMERS GEN DLX QUICKSLINGER AF CS
TRANSFORMERS GEN DLX BRAKE-NECK AF CS

It would appear Brake-Neck/Wildrider and Quickslinger/Slingshot come in cases of 8 of the same figure, retail for $17.99, and have a ship date right now of May 27th 2015.


It's worth noting that Quickslinger and Brake-Neck are previously established substitutes for Slingshot and Wildrider, used for the Bot Shot and Kre-O versions of the characters in the past.

TFW's Combiner Wars Offroad In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 03-22-2015 at 03:04 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
Offroad-Robot-30 It's time for some more in-hand galleries of the Combiner Wars toys, and with the recent announcement of a Menasor set for Japan, now seemed like a great time to take a look at the Stunticon Japan is not getting - Offroad!

Like Alpha Bravo, Offroad is a newcomer to the established combiner team, and his bio even pays tribute to that fact. He's visually got Wildrider's deco in truck mode, but in robot mode he has a nice shade of turquoise to break up the grey, which works great for him. Offroad also shares a bunch of cues with Generation 1 Crankcase, which some fans have picked up on, particularly in his robot mode.

As a toy, Offroad is good. He's got a full range of movement other than ankles in his legs, including a waist swivel. The arms feature a similar range of movement, but the sides of the truck on his shoulders can catch on the front of the truck on his back - but not as much as you might think, they actually have a very good range of movement. What I particularly love is that the head is on a balljoint, and has enough movement to be posed looking up or down, or even cocked sideways, which together with the wonderful personality captured in the headsculpt really gives Offroad a lot of character.

As you might have guessed, I really like this one, not only as a member of the Stunticons, but as an individual toy in his own right. Even if he gets displaced from my Menasor by an eventual Wildrider, I'm still planning to keep Offroad in my collection display for his own sake. Check out the gallery and see for yourself:

Possible New Subline: Transformers Generations Cyber Series?

Posted on 03-17-2015 at 10:43 AM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
10407988_621604344605739_6423343262987337919_n Courtesy of Snakas (Autobase Aichi), we have ourselves a look at a possible new Transformers: Generations subline - the Cyber Series, which seems to be a new line with simpler transformations intended for younger audiences. The line, thus far, looks to include Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Megatron.

Keep an eye out as there's bound to be more info coming soon!

Update: That was fast! Thanks to TFW2005 boards member Ra88, we have a translation of the Brazilian catalog these images came from:

"In the catalog of the Brazilian distributors for, new series of Generations has been posted.
The listed is the "Generations Cyber series" that new line, pattern of low age for simple deformation items in the motif G1 character. It seems to expand in two sizes.
"Cyber 11 Assorted" is, to catalog the size of the street 11 inches of its name (about 28 cm), Optimus Prime and Bumblebee of G1-style new design has been published.
Another size is a "cyber 7 Assorted", 7 inches (about 18 cm). Megatron to deform in tanks has been posted. Perhaps, the other day Starscream, which was exhibited in special events of the Indianapolis Children's Museum also, I will think or not than a lineup of seven inches size of series.
Pattern of release since autumn."


Update 2: Jalaguy has also uncovered some more Cyber Series photos from Issuu, this time featuring a 7-inch Grimlock and Bumblebee. All of these take inspiration from various different continuities. Plus, a possible Generations Titan assortment was discovered, though we don't have any further info on that as of yet.

Independent Wins Fan Built Combiner Personality Category

Posted on 03-13-2015 at 01:55 PM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
4a051098-9030-454d-aa19-2c125d2633c3_zpsohuo05dr The third and final round of Fan Built Combiner voting came to an end not too long ago, and today we finally get our announcement on one of the winning categories - it's been revealed that the combiner's personality will be independent!

So, let's recap. Thus far we know that we're looking at an independent Autobot combiner hailing from the Sea of Rust. Unfortunately, those are the only winning categories that have been announced; it is expected that the others - including the highly-anticipated gender announcement - will be made public later on at SDCC.

Discuss the results of the vote after the jump!
