Weapon: Sniper Rifle
In a continuation of a previous story here we now have pictures of the back of the boxes showing the robot modes, and some very different than possibly expected colors for these.





You can further discuss these exclusives in bran10's original thread in the Toys Forum.

We'll let you know when there is more information on these new repaint/exclusives. Keep checking here, the Seibertron.com Toy News!

I never got the Cybertron version of these but I might get these IF I can beat the scalpers.

They look interesting. Jetstrom in particular I like the color scheme.

I'm not sure the neon green there works on Wingblade. Still I never really liked the fact that he doesn't have fists, or hands, but machine guns for fingers.

However there is no indication on the back of the box that he can combine with Cyb Prime even though we know he can.

I wonder if they are thinking of re-releasing Cyb Prime as a movie character just so he can combine with Wingblade. Or have avoided any indication of the combiner feature to avoid having to release Prime.

If they do, perhaps he could be Movie Ultra Magnus? I find it Interesting. Hey one can dream can't one?

I was thinking something similar, you do notice they left Wingblade an Autobot while making Jetstorm an Decpticon. I’m trying to think what they could call a green Prime and the only thing that goes through my mind is Toxitron who was a Decepticon but who knows what Hasbro may do.

Regardless, I hope very much that they release Cyb. Prime to go along with this guy, since I missed out on him the first time around.

Hmmm, I never picked up that WingSaber mold before, and my bots could use a boost in troops reinforcements. Sure, I'll get that guy if I see him. I like the colors on him as well. As for Jetstorm goes, already have the GF version and the US Skyshadow, so I'm gonna have to pass on that.

Jetstorm actually looks like Octane this time around. If there wasn't already a Classics 2.0/Universe Octane on the way, I'd pick him up. Wing Saber reminds me of Springer in robot mode. Too bad his alt mode is totally different.

Nope, this is the first look we've gotten of them. no release dates thus far that we know.

But probably not very long.

IMO the blue on jetstorm looks kind of out of place, but i will reserve my judgement until OOP pictures are revealed.

How much were these when they were first released in the Cyb line?

The boxes look bigger than a Voyager but smaller than Leader, so splitting the difference would make them $29.99. Does that sound right?

Their size class is officially "Ultra" which lies between Voyager and Leader. But their price was actually 24.99.

I'll stick with my originals, but both look far better than I was expecting.

Guess Hasbro keeping my expectations so low has paid off!

Oh, I am glad they are making these because I missed most of the Cybertron line, and evilBay scalpers are greedy little imps. So, this at least sparks some chance at getting them at reasonable prices.

I don't know which one I want to get, Wing Saber or Jetstorm? Which is better? And, no, I do not have Cybertron Prime.
