    Those two look very solid, I'm trying so hard not to collect Combiner Wars.

    I've never seen Walmart.com or Target.com have ANYTHING in the way of even remotely hot collectible toys available for purchase. They might have the toys that are common in their stores but almost never the rare ones. Toys R Us sometimes does have the hard-to-find stuff on their site but toys are their specialty. I'm surprised they aren't planning to get them in their stores.

    I have all of the Combiner Wars figures and I can say that Alpha Bravo is without a doubt the best deluxe figure of the whole line so far.

    i think i'd give it to Off Road (no arms blatantly hanging off the vehicle mode), but it is kinda funny that the somewhat hated figures are 2 of the very best of the line...

    Not only is his name changed, but he's a "breacher" now. He used to be a terrorist!

    They're looking good. Think I might pass on these versions though, as I'm happy with Off-road and Alpha Bravo for my Hasbro sets and are getting the Unite Warriors versions which will sate my desire for these two characters.

    If Robotkingdom wasn't sold out I probably would've gone for it though.

    Honestly, Wildrider's excessive amount of red (in car mode) makes me want to skip him.

    Plus it'd be really weird having two guys that look exactly the same, so I'll stick with Offroad.

    Any chance Chosenprime is goinga carry these?

    Still wish Fireflight looked a bit different and they retooled him more before he was released and Slingshot just wasnt a straight repaint of him. I feel the same with Wildrider,they could of done more retooling. Id still like to get them regardless.

    They look sweet! These two guys over Alpha Bravo and Offroad any day!

    I'll probably give my Alpha Bravo to Defensor, even if the team wouldn't be as diverse at least he'd have symmetrical arms, and It'd save me money by not buying Rook.

    Slingshot is a must, I've got my original G1 in the collection. Still on the fence about B-N.

    I love the image in the gallery where AB has his head hanging lowing after being replaced on the team; the walk of shame pose.

    Waiting on BBTS now...

    I'm buying two of each, one MOSC and one to customize, now I need an extra Dead End and Fireflight for parts. Dead End thighs and crotch for Wildrider, and Fireflight thighs and forearms to have hands repainted like the Takara version for Slingshot. That will make them both more toon accurate.

    I've stalked BBTS everyday, several times a day waiting for these...they've never once been available yet for purchase or preorder.

    The Sold Out I believe is only until the pages are active and they get the permission to make them live.

    How dare they replace The Greatest Autobot Of All Time, Alpha Bravo, with some Firefly impostor in his colors???!!!Thx fer nothing Hasblow:( 

    Seriously, great pics. I'm Looking forward to getting this pair. I may still get AB and Offroad as standalones, by virtue of how cool they look as individuals.
