Over on TFW2005, forum member Mr. Chaos is revealing a list of potentially new Combiner Wars figures pulled from the computer listings of an unnamed retailer.
Take this all with a huge grain of salt, as none of it is confirmed, but the rumors certainly are intriguing.
I believe most Transformers fans already knew that Bruticus and the Combaticons were slated for an appearance somewhere within the Combiner Wars line, and these listings confirm that, with four of those Combaticons supposedly slated to appear as Deluxes!
Following the formula of the Aerialbots and Stunticons, I think we can assume some repaints and retools, as well as some re-shelling, which is fine with me, because the cores of most of the Deluxe figures I’ve handled so far are excellent.
But here things get interesting… along with the above wave of Deluxes, a whole separate wave is listed (though no Voyagers appear in the system yet). This other wave consists of:
This certainly raises some eyebrows! Classic Autobots as combiners? Could the three above figures work with some minor retooling and reshelling? Hrmmm…
Along with the above, some Legends figures were listed as well:
Autobot Stripes- b5610
Now, I’ll say right off, I’m not sure I’m “all in” on the Protectobots yet, but I will be all over those Combaticons for sure. And if the classic Autobots look good individually, too? Ouch. It’s looking more and more like my passing fascination with Transformers may not be so passing.
