Coming to us from E-Hobby and Amiami, and spotted by eagle eyed TFW2005 members Type-R and PoweredConvoy, we have our first crystal clear images of UW-07 Bruticus and the rest of the Combaticons in all their cartoon glory. Of note, Blast Off seems to ditch his esoteric looking robot mode and actually looks good, now that we have clear images of him. In addition Vortex is also looking pretty cool as well while Swindle seems to lack any changes at all except for a three barreled blaster. As to if they fixed the waist issues with Brawl, that has yet to be seen, but we can hope! Take a look at the pics and join the dicussion gang!
Thanks to 2005 Board member vproject for posting his latest local finding in the Phillipines – Combiner Wars 2016 Wave 2 Deluxes and Voyagers! This wave will feature a second set of “Classic Generation 1” Autobots, which will include Smokescreen, Wheeljack, Hound and Trailbreaker. The Voyager assortment that is shown with this sighting is only of the single new mold in the entire wave, Sky Lynx. For those curious, vproject did spot the Onslaught in this wave. However, those hoping for a brown/cartoon accurate Bruticus chest may be disappointed as this sighting featured a silver version. However, take that as a grain of salt. We’ll see as the wave reaches worldwide saturation.
Hopefully this sighting indicates a US release within the next couple of weeks. Join the discussion after the jump.

Checkout images of the list of upcoming Takara Transformers figures after the break, and let us know what you’re most excited from the list of reveals.
Staff Edit: A slighter better image of Unite Warriors Bruticus has surfaced. We have mirrored this for you after the jump.
Thanks to Twitter User generator_g1, we have a first look at Combiner Wars Wreck-Gar in package. According to his tweets, this wave of Combiner Wars Legends is scheduled to be release in the Philippines very soon. Hopefully, we will see them released to other regions in the near future. Check out the full image after the break.
Thanks to TFW member Pavol Palat we have the first official retail sighting of Robots in Disguise Legends Class Wave 6 as well as Europe’s first retail sightings of Robot’s in Disguise Mini-Con Battle Packs and Combiner Wars Legends Class Wave 5! These were sighted at an Alltoys store in Slovakia which also had the Combiner Wars Devastator for 60 Euro’s! Hopefully soon these items will make their way to retail stores across the globe.
Thanks board member levandowski, we got a heads-up that a listing for Transformers Titan Returns Leader Class Blaster‘s unpainted prototype has surfaced on Taobao. We have previously seen a painted version of this figure at earlier this years, but this prototype’s image is giving us a clear size contrast between the titan master and helmet feature previously discussed by floor representative during the Hasbro event at NYCC 2015. What are your thoughts on this? Check out the prototype, then sound off with us on the board after the break.
Good news for those who still seek the thrill of finding figures on store shelves because Transformers Combiner Wars Leader Class Skywarp has been spotted in a Target in Tustin, California by board member OCProwl. If you simply cannot wait for packages to arrive during the holiday season, hopefully you can find this for yourself or the person on your list trying to complete the leader size seeker trio. Happy hunting TFW!
As November is finishing its stay on the calendar, the last month of 2015 is knocking on the door, vying for its rightful place. With its mid-December release date fast approaching, the Japanese Hobby publication Dengeki Hobby has posted a gallery full of final product images of United Warriors UW-04 Devastator. This collection of pictures includes additional close up shots of features like face changing gimmick and weapon storage on each constructicon’s vehicle mode that are unique to this 25,000 Yen TakaraTomy release. Thanks for board member Type-R for giving us the lead. Check out these images after the jump, and let us know your thoughts on these on the boards.
Good news everyone! 2005 Board member TM2 Dinobot has let us all know that the next wave of Combiner Wave Voyagers is out at US retail. Get your hunting caps on, as Voyager Scattorshot has been spotted at a Target in Houston, TX. No sign of his wave mate, Onslaught, but one can deduce that he is also out in the wild as well.

Thanks to board members Nevermore & BattleUpSaber, we have news that Amazon.ca has posted new listings for Combiner Wars Legends Buzzsaw, Chop Shop, and Shockwave. You might remember seeing these figures from our coverage after Hasbro’s panel during Botcon 2015, and now we are finally seeing official in package product images.
Some interesting things to note from these images are the sticker on Shockwave’s package denoting him as part of Bruticus’ team (as seen from NYCC), and also Buzzsaw, who bears play pattern from the Titan Returns line, being released under the Combiner Wars banner.
Check out the images and official product description after the break and sound off your thoughts on these figures with us on the boards.
