Transformers Game Reveals, Viper, Cyclonus Combiner Wars Toys?

TransformersHope is a LieVia Cybertron.ca: The thread Re: Combiner Wars/Generations has images from a new app with Combiner Wars molds which just happen to correspond with yet another list of leaks.

Viper is a blue Cobra Rattler-ish repaint of the recently released Powerglide (nice) with what looks like a Cobra pilot head and Cyclonus appears to be a nice a retooling of the torso combiner Silverbolt.

If you love Robots in Disguise, this dump of images from the RID app shows Legions Fixit and Underbite, in addition to One-Steps Drift, Fixit, Optimus Prime, Fracture, and Thunderhoof, Warriors Jazz and Sideswipe, Hero Steeljaw, and Starter Jazz. So there you go.

New Club Nintendo Rewards

NintendoSoonReminder: Club Nintendo ends soon, so any coins you have must be redeemed in the next few months. New Rewards are available now. Seemingly - the site has been down and buggy since Monday morning's launch of new physical rewards and over 60 digital ones like the hard-to-get Doc Louis Punch-Out!! and a smattering of full retail Wii U and 3DS games in addition to retro titles.

With Super Mario 3D Land, The Wonderful 101, and Earthbound you'll probably find something good here - just dig out all those unregistered games and get yourself something neat. But don't be surprised if things aren't working quite this week.

Goofy! The Four Horsemen Gothitropolis Minotaur the Duck Action Figure is a fine example of the joke figure.

Gothitropolis Ravens - The Trusty Pelican?

KickstarterKickstarterVia Source Horsemen: MORE POSSIBLE NEW VARIATIONS!

A previously revealed Toucan is now being joined by a Pelican. These are possible new heads for another batch of Gothitropolis Ravens figures, the 2013 Kickstarter sensation that basically sold out before the first figure landed on North American shores.

Mythic Legions - 6-Inch Scale, Glyos Compatibility Dropped

ToysToysVia the Glyos News Dump: Mythic Legions: Now 6-inch, No Glyos Compatibility.

Rising costs and the narrowing gap between 4-inch and 6-inch figure prices were cited as the main reason for the switch. If you collect Hasbro toys, the $13-$15 3 3/4-inch figure looks pretty weak next to a 6-inch figure for $20, so it's hard to blame them for the move in this direction.

Kickstarter: Four Horsemen Mythic Legions

KickstarterSoonVia Kickstarter: Mythic Legions Action Figures by Four Horsemen Studios.

The cheapest buy-in is $30 with the fancier figures at $45. You can get 16 different figures for $515. Delivery is expected for March 2016 (13 months), but the Ravens from 2013 took about 16 months. The 6-inch action figures are no longer Glyos compatible and look great, if you like this sort of thing - the sculpting and deco are superb, and the goal is $140,000. They beat 10% in the first day easily and the price-per-figure is largely comparable to the similarly sized Masters of the Universe Classics. At press time it's about 39% funded.

Figure of the DayTakara-Tomy Transformers Sega Genesis MegatronSomething new every day-- unless it's old! Our exciting Figure of the Day continues for you lucky people! Is there anything we won't cover in this column? Probably not!

Yes, I bought this because I own this domain name! The Takara-Tomy Transformers Sega Genesis Megatron is a redeco (and partial remold) of Mega Drive Megatron, only it costs more money and is limited to 1,000 units. Until the knock-offs start, I assume. Read on and come back Monday for more!

Transformers Combiner Wars Vote Names, New Triple Changers

TransformersTestyVia the Allspark: Platinum Edition Blitzwing and Astrotrain Revealed! The deco is nothing like we've seen before, bringing them closer to the toys of 1989-1993 than the originals of around 1985. No US release date or price has been confirmed, but I'd bank on at least $80.

Also new and notable, the Fan Combiner Vote enters its final round with the gender and name up for grabs - and this might make things weird, given the best name (Slammoth) runs counter to the fan desire for an all-woman combiner team. Other names include Victorion and Quakebreak, but let's be honest, Slammoth is the best.
