Firedrive, Blowpipe and Lionizer make up the first wave of Battle Masters which are the new $5.99 price point for the line.

United States Patent And Trademark Office is a wealth of information when it comes to learning what kind of Transformers products, TV shows and even movies that will come out in the near future.
It so happens that Hasbro has applied for two new trademarks at the USPTO few days ago under “Toy action figures, toy vehicles and toy robots convertible into other visual toy forms” category.
Autobot Wheelie (Trademark ID: 86741919)
Backtrack (Trademark ID: 86741920)
We do not know what these trademarks might mean but nearly all of the recently applied trademarks are now Toys/TV Shows/Movies. Therefore we can safely assume that we will see these characters one way or the other.
P.S: It is rumored that we will see a Legends Wheelie for Combiner Wars. But, speculations are all upto you now. Let us know what you think, on the thread associated with this news post.
Now a follow up on a previous story regarding the Generations Voyager Optimus Prime’s hip problem and how Hasbro has resolved them. It has now been brought to our attention that the voyager mold’s very popular reuse, Motor Master, has been given the same treatment! These resolved issues make the figures more stable when combined with the Stunticons in their combined mode, Menasor. Thanks to 2005 Board member Payres for once again providing the heads up.

Hot of the trail of a recent discovery of a sticker sheet from Titan class Devastator, site sponsor Robotkingdom has announced on Facebook their campaign for a sticker sheet for Combiner Wars Wave 3 and 4 figures that you can be obtained from them with a purchase of qualifying Combiner Wars products.
The sheet appears includes stickers for adding details on members of Defensor and Optimus Maximus to make them look closer to their respective G1 counter parts. Unfortunately, a detailed image of the sticker sheet itself is not available just yet; be sure to stay tuned once until then. Checkout the image of the announcement mirrored below, and for more information on the campaign and list of qualifying products, check out their announcement on Facebook here.
Thanks to board member Blindspot77, we learned that the website Toy People News published an article showing some tips and tricks on adding details to Titan Class Devastator. Among the images in the article was one showing an official sticker sheet being used to customize the Titan Class figure for added G1 accuracy, very similar to the sheet designed for Superion and Menasor. The sticker sheet appears to be printed on a metallic background, featuring stickers for all 6 memebers of the Constructicons.
In the article, the author mentioned the sticker sheet was simply included in the box with this release in Taiwan. The instructions printed on the back of the sticker sheet is written in Traditional Chinese, which may suggest its exclusivity to the region. Unfortunately, it is unknown whether this will be available through other means at this time, but be sure to stay tuned for the latest development. Check out some of the mirrored images below, and let us know your thoughts on this apparent Hasbro Asia exclusive item.
Thanks to Facebook user Victor Wong‘s post in the group HK-TF, we got news that Combiner Wars Battle Core Optimus Prime has now been found in Hong Kong. This means that this figure’s release will be coming soon to other markets like Europe, Australia, and North America.
Check out the the images after the break, and let us know if you’re excited for this release on the boards!
As the Transformers: Generations Combiner Wars Devastator is hitting retail, Hasbro has posted a small commercial demonstrating the toy.
“Devastator is a raging hammer of chaos, battling voices in his head one minute, then crushing his targets the next. He is the perfect weapon, held back by a single imperfection: the Constructicons struggle to successfully merge their thoughts into one cohesive action, making it difficult to focus the wrath of their combined form. If they were able to harness the full force of their collective power, they would give the Decepticons a weapon capable of pounding entire civilizations to 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.
This all-in-one Devastator set contains 6 Transformers Voyager Scale figures, 4 weapon accessories, and instructions, and comes with a collectible character card featuring art based on the Transformers Legends mobile game. Each figure converts from robot to construction vehicle and back. It takes 8-17 steps to convert between modes, depending on the figure.”
