Even more rumors have come arrived! TFW2005 member Mr. Chaos reports that his friend had gone digging through a list of product in the product information database at his store (a large supercenter), and came across some new Generations Combiner Wars Voyager names.
First off, it appears as though we will be getting a Voyager Cyclonus! It seems he will be the wave-mate of Protectobot Hot Spot, as both use have similar coding (Hot Spot is B2397, and Cyclonus is B2398), and are one digit off in UPC (Hot Spot is 63050929832, and Cyclonus is 63050929833).
Secondly, the previously-reported
white Voyager Optimus Prime redeco will be named Optimus Maximus, and will will be in wave 4 (his code is B2727, with the UPC 63050932502).
Mr. Chaos also reports having the UPCs for some of the upcoming Deluxe and Legend figures, though it is nothing that we haven't heard of before. The wave 3 Deluxes will consist of the Protectobots and wave 4 will be the Autobot limb retool figures. While we have no definite word on wave numbers, Legends Blackjack, Huffer, Groove, Warpath, Viper, Rodimus and Skywarp are also coming up.
Start getting prepared for New York Toy Fair, as it looks like we'll be seeing a lot of stuff there.Read Replies (0)

Some more concept art from the late Transformers Universe MOTA game has been posted online. Concept artist Oliver Miles has posted some vehicle mode designs - including Bumblebee and Hound - on his Artstation
account, while his 3D Artist Portfolio
has some robot mode designs, including Brawl, Cameo, Drive-By, Frontline, Anomaly, Conduit, Monsoon.
Artist Sam Beattie meanwhile has only posted one piece but it is a good one - it's Adhoc
, and Autobot helicopter from the planned expansion of the game to add flying Transformers, which was ultimately scuppered by the game's closure.Read Replies (0)

Wrapping up our photo gallery coverage of the first waves of the Combiner Wars, we're taking a look at the big bot himself, Optimus Prime! Combiner Wars Optimus Prime
is a Voyager Class version of the Autobot commander with inspirations from the current IDW comics design (as well as taking cues from Transformers Energon Optimus Prime and maybe even the Powermaster Optimus Prime / Ginrai).
Optimus Prime is very much a toy. He's big and chunky, and has that certain "larger than life" feel to him - the kind of feel the Autobot commander usually gets in fiction. Poseability is good, and you can squeeze a bit more lateral arm movement out of the toy by unclipping the shoulders in robot mode. Optimus has two blasters, one based on the iconic Ion Blaster, which combine into a larger weapon that looks good held in two hands, or held by the gigantic Ultra Prime combination.
Ultra Prime is a cool extra for the toy. There's some great points on it, such as Optimus' hands providing 5mm sockets for shoulder mounting weapons, as well as the chest details featuring a very Transformers Energon looking Matrix. On the less pleasing side, the legs are a bit awkward thanks to the way they transform, and while there's scope to adjust them to suit your taste, they are the weakest point on the design.
Overall Optimus is a cool design and worth checking out, either as himself or as one of his upcoming redecos / retools including Stunticon Motormaster. For now though, please enjoy our gallery at the link below:Combiner Wars Voyager Optimus PrimeRead Replies (0)

A new update is available for the Transformers: Robots In Disguise Mobile Game. This update brings several new features including a sneak peek at the upcoming Comic Book and New Characters from the show.
We've noticed that the update is not available for every country yet and is not available for certain devices as well; indicating a staged rollout. Unfortunately after updating, the game progress goes back to the beginning and this is something you need to watch out for. Lots of design features are added, with better performance and shorter loading times.
Cutscenes are added before and after missions so that there is a storyline going on, instead of just going from one mission to another. So, people who are highly sensitive for Spoilers should avoid playing.
The official update description:
***Transmission From Cybertron***
Power ups are now easier to pick up
New languages available (Polish, Turkish, Czech, Slovakian, Hungarian, Romanian, Swedish, Danish, Finish, Norwegian)
Added mission finished sequence
Added comic book story images
Added many more unlock codes. Keep searching!
Minor tweaks and tune-ups continuing to improve the app
You can grab the game from the following locations:
Android: Google Play Store
iOS: iTunes StoreRead Replies (0)

had the opportunity to sit down with Transformers: Windblade writer Mairghread Scott for an interview about the upcoming Combiner Wars comic storyline.
As always, if you want to remain completely surprised and spoiler free, be safe and skip the rest.
The interview dives into the background of Windblade and her mini-series comic, her tie-in to the Combiner Wars
, as well as what lies ahead for the popular fan created character. We've already received confirmation about Windblade's future
, but for even more reassurance Scott once again confirmed what we all want to hear: Comics Alliance: What plans do you have for her going forward? Is it right to say that the book will be continuing onwards as a series, even after “Combiner Wars” wraps up?
Mairghread Scott: It is absolutely right to say. Transformers: Windblade will not only continue after “Combiner Wars,” it will be dealing with the events of “Combiner Wars” for a long time. As far as plans go, I have way more plans than I should, for a lot of characters.
Almost none of them are nice though.
The Combiner Wars
will start in March, who's ready to find out what Scott is hinting at? Make the jump to discuss your thoughts!Read Replies (0)
