Hey gang,
Slow day at work so was checking out the TFW2005 boards and found mention that RobotKingdom will ship the first wave of Generations Combiner Wars in mid-December this year: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transform ... ember.html

Hopefully other outlets will announce similar dates soon!

Make that two retailers: Kapow Toys also has Wave 1 up for pre-order and expected in mid-December, but has the toys available as individuals. http://www.kapowtoys.co.uk/transformers ... ?limit=all

Yeah, there's a lot of debate about that at TFW. But I find it interesting that an Asian-based retailer has the same ETA as a UK-based retailer.

Leaves me with two questions: 1) when will US retailers get it in stock so we/Zippo can order, and b) when (if) will they arrive in NZ?

I can re-open the Asia orders if there is enough interest to get sets quicker.

March was the date Hasbro gave me, though i'd suspect local shelves could potentially get them in Feburary depending on how quickly they restock after Christmas. Be nice if they were out before then but I suspect there'll be a tonne of AoE overstock to get rid of first.

I figure here's the best place to put this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AW_k_JQ5nQU

It's a short showcase of the combiners (Superion and Menasor)

The combiner joints look interesting, they slide the arms into place instead of the FoC Bruticus or Energon style.

Also, ten points for the obvious "we made the central figure voyager class so they'd be sturdier!"

Y'know, normally packaging doesn't make *that much* of a difference to me, but these photos have pretty much sold me the Aerialbots.

Based on the number of languages - that is the Canada packaging, which may extend to be the Asia/Australia/NZ packaging
Europe has different rules and will need more languages while USA packaging is still rumoured to have an IDW comic

Well there is the rumor of titian devastator being made of 6 voyagers but I take it with huge grain of salt considering

Longhaul in the comics is massive to the other 4 meaning if there is a 6th it will probaly be a legends class, so the 4 deluxes 1 voyager is more then possible adding in the legend.

We have ultramagnus geting a leader class next year as well as 2x megatrons and thundercracker so I put this into consideration when working out that rumor.

In a recent video showing off menasaur and suprion you could see devs and defensor in the back ground which adds to the speculation adding in alpha bravo is perfect for blades as well.

If we do get a gift set titian devastator I will be very happy.
