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.

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.

Thanks to TFW2005 boards member vproject
, we've got our first retail sighting for a few Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Figures! Spotted in Manila, Philippines were the much anticipated Jazz and Sideswipe! Hopefully this sighting means good news for the rest of the world that we'll be seeing them soon as well.
Also purchased were One-Step Changers Fracture and Thunderhoof. Autobots may be dominating the Warrior Class to this point, but these Decepticons even the odds just a bit.
Be sure to use our sightings forums

PREPARE FOR DEVASTATION!!! New images have come to us from Planet Iacon's Facebook Page
of the SDCC/STGCC Exclusive Titan Devastator! This exclusive is sporting chrome paint, as evident on Mixmaster's cement barrel, and box design is awesome as well. It features a slip cover with Devastator's face on the front, and box's cover has Scrapper's shovel as the front flap!
The back of the box features a cool bio for Devastator:DEVASTATOR is a raging hammer of chaos, battling conflicting voices in his head one nanoklik, then crushing his targets the next. He is the perfect weapon, held back by one imperfection: the circuit-clogging conflict caused by bots unable to wield the very power that they themselves bring to life. The CONSTRUCTICONS struggle to successfully merge their thoughts into one cohesive action, making it difficult to focus the wrath of their combined form. Were they able to harness the full force of their collective power, they would give the DECEPTICONS a weapon capable of pounding entire civilizations into dust. As long as that threat exists, DEVASTATOR will loom as a shadow across the universe, an enemy the Autobots - and all the worlds they protect - must fear.
"Prepare to meet your doom. Nothing can withstand the might of DEVASTATOR!"
