Hasbro Generations Combiner Wars Thread

I almost want to slap Hasbro. People are buying up third party combiners so Hasbro decides to get in on the action and this is what we get? People would eat up combiners that looked legit.

whats wrong with them Starscream49?.. I looking at them thinking they looked pretty cool... I even liked the dorky move of powerglide as a gun

 

I love these Why is there a helicopter with the Areilbots and Motormasters robot mode is awesome

 

 

Mold reuse for future combiners ?.. Only thing I can think of ...

 

combaticons & defensor both use one

I just think with everyone wanting third part combiners, that's the direction they should have went. If Hasbro put out a legit Menasor and Superion it would kill some third party people.

Mine is also why is Wildrider a Truck? He never was a truck. I like how Deadend,Breakdown & Drag Strip look even Motormaster but Wildrider is a big turn down for me.

I'm in agreement w/you JA....I don't care for how Motormaster turned out & I can overlook Wild-rider but the over all look of Menasor looks kinda wonky...the Arial-bots look promising though....

I like them. I cannot afford overpriced 3rd party combiners sorry. These will do just fine for those of us that have to collect on a "budget".

 

Oh and here they are all laid out for you.

Hopefully they will not be that difficult to find. It used to be easier when guys like us were kids and could walk into a Lionel Playworld and see a whole Isle of Transformers with no problem finding any of them..

I empathize, but Hasbro's just not in the 3rd Party killing business. They like to play it safe with affordable, kid friendly, mass produced and easily repurposed/redeco'd items. And I'm not saying that to criticize them. But I would also like to see them take a more premium approach with Generations sometimes.

 

As for what we're getting, I'm not overwhelmed, but I think they look ok. Superion seems to make the stronger Combiner, while the Stunticons seem to have nice looking individual components (except that pickup truck, meh). I'm not feeling Menasor's combined mode so much. The wide chest area is just too much of a departure from how he's supped to look (imho). Not loving the updated head sculpt either. The whole thing reminds me of a Power Core Combiner for some reason.

Yeah, oddly enough Motormaster looks decent but the Prime he's based on looks quite bad. Or maybe it's the other way around and Prime was based off Motormaster this time.

I had two toy stores near me at the time one was Kiddy Town a toy store that was only in my hometown and Child World..God I remember the aisles with about a thousand transformrs and you didn't have to worry about finding the figures back then

We had child world's other store Children's Palace.. Those were the good old days.

And who knows, maybe Hasbro could give us more accurate Constructicons soon..

Oh, man...Children's Palace. That brings back memories. The store in Independence, MO was literally around the corner from Toys R Us. Keep your enemies close, eh?

I mean, I have this:

But, c'mon.

 

After getting the Make Toys Green Giant(damn I love that thing and yes its 3rd Party) I don't know how big H can top that.

I'd like to say they are in the 3rd party biz in that they have the MP line ... you want 3rd party quality that is where you go & just look at the cost on those ... When /if they ever do combiners all anyone will be doing is complaining about how much they have to spend on them @loll@
