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.

While I liked the Cybertron versions, I think I am going to wait and see if I can find these on clearance.

I think I'm gonna maybe get the Jetfire redeco(that's saying alot for a pointless repaint)

However the green on the Wing Saber redeco is enough to turn me off to it.

Still, if you missed him first time around, I realy do recomend him.

Dude, you can be assured that that will not happen. No exclusive or limited repaint has gone to clearance in a while... :-(

i took the liberty of Photoshopping an old picture of my Sonic Wing to illustrate (theoretically) what would the WIngblade recolor look like Powerlinked to Cybertron Optimus

Between the two I like Wingblade, but not sure I'll get him.

I take it all back...
I just noticed he doesn't have hands... That's stupid (imo).

I'll pass on both for sure.
More $$$ for the Animated line!!!!

Even though it has meant cleaning up extra messes, I haven't let the family dog out in 3 weeks for fear that she'll be snatched up by Hasbro, repainted and released in the new movie line. They seem to be doing it to everything else that isn't nailed down.
