    Is that Skywarp in the background?

    So I have one Optimus Prime and One Cyclonus CW version, and Alpha Bravo and Offroad.
    So with four more limbs, I can make Optimus Maximus out of Optimus Prime and Wave 4 deluxe. That leaves Alpha Bravo, Offroad, and Cyclonus.

    Rook and replacement Combaticon may be the ones to help Cyclonus form Galvatronus.

    I heard we are getting CW deluxe Wheeljack, Tracks, Trailcutters, and one more? If yes, I am getting Voyager Optimus Maximus, if not, well, why bother?

    Nice find, Nevermore! Your thread and contributions are AMAZING, so keep up the great work! :D  :thumb 


    That said, I don't really care about this. The art is nothing like the final product, so it does little to excite - rather it inevitably disappoints. When you think about it, it's all hype, and once you get the actual product, there's buyer's remorse. Considering this guy is a bunch of repaints (with maybe some new heads), it's hard to get too excited. And the Optimus/Motormaster gestalt doesn't function as nicely as depicted - he's missing a pelvis and his legs aren't nearly that functional (sadly).

    I was honestly hoping for an Autobot Masquerade team (a la G1), but it seems this will be more IDW stuff I haven't read. Total meh.

    I really do hope we get those so either CW Prime or Maximus aren't just spare core bodies.

    What can we really see here that we didn't already know?

    Wow, I will actually have use for a shameless repaint for once. The Autobot-nee-Stunticon limbs can go on red Prime for the sake of my OCD. White Prime can be the body for Alpha Bravo, Rook, Offroad, and one other unwelcome new character they try to sub into one of the classic teams.

    Disappointed Ironhide doesn't have his WFC grill. Would have looked neat in leg mode.


    Yeah, I don't really want Maximus but that rifle is nice looking.

    It looks as expected I don't see the need for doofus.

    What did you think Hasbro was "grabbing" for before this wave?

    They are a large global money making corperation, their goal is to earn as much profit as they can, not giving out free toys.

    What you meant to say is I don't like the aesthetics on this guy he looks like a doofus.

    So another repaint wave in the form of Victorion parts before we go to Combaticons and Technobots?

    Who knows when this artwork was made. There's no guarantee the final product will look anything like this.

    If the order followed by the names being discoverd is followed it looks something like this

    Dec 2015: Combaticons, with all four original limbs Onslaught Link 12th Feb Limbs Link 24th April

    Feb 2016: 1984/5 Autobobots Wave 2 Link 24 April

    May 2016: Victorion - no names found yet

    There's a Scattorshot listed with the Onslaught Voyager but no Technobot limbs yet Link 12th Feb

    In addition there's another 3 Legends that were found 1st June Link and the leader Skywarp listing Link

    Personally, I'm hoping Hasbro uses the Motormaster version of the mold with Prime's head and combiner parts. That'd atleast make Maximus somewhat unique.

    I've said this before, I'll say it again:

    3P companies: I have money for a blue Ultra Magnus super mode head, to replace the combined mode Prime head, and a blue/red chest shield that mounts on the docking pegs for Rodimus/Blackjack and can also be used as a hand held shield by the Voyager robot. Make it happen.

    My one disappointment about the Leader Magnus is that it seems to have prevented Hasbro going down this route with the white Prime

    I'll probably get Ironhide (and the rumored Ratchet later) since the Universe update was less than great (though they need to replace the damn axe already, it has been with two figures in two consecutive waves already). Maybe Prowl, depending on how much I like Streetwise. The other two I'll probably skip unless Walmart or Target runs a sale this fall to bring them to around $10. Not really interested in the Optimus repaint either, unless I can get it cheap.

    It's on the side of the packaging for Combiner Wars Hot Rod.

    Eh... I doubt that part. The artwork was probably just done from the prototype with the 3 peg holes. I expect that that doesn't exist as actual tooling.

    Ditto and what he said.

    I will patiently wait until the Combaticons thank you very much!

    Cool, thanks.
    I guess that will make sense when I get caught up on the books.

    How can you tell there is retooling or not from that picture?

    That would be great.
