Back the truck up a minute. Generations: Fall of Cybertron? So that's an easy ten or so out of our promised 40? I give up.

Generations Voyagers coming in the post-Xmas season!? Argh. You can never find Voyagers then. I was hoping to get Soundwave sooner.

Yeah, I'm not liking the thick disc deal with Soundwave's troops. The circle doesn't lend itself to well shaped robots. The only one that looks decent is Ratbat. I wouldn't mind Laserbeak and Buzzsaw but I'm not buying the Soundwave mold twice to get them.

Why couldn't they do Rumble and co. as Real Gears? Booster is currently my Classics Laserbeak.

Those marketing guys at Hasbro really do suck. Ironically that's the best FoC Bruticus has ever looked. Still a 'no'!

Sideswipe does look better than Jazz, but I can't figure out why that giant weapon come side-car is necessary.

Not happy about the name swap on Autobot Shockwave. Air Raid's WFC design was probably the best flyer in the game, and now his name has been tarnished by this thing. Surely there's going to be a load of kids complaining that this isn't how Air Raid looked in the game.

Get your head-banging emoticons ready as I'm about to say I think Ultra Magnus has too much blue on him.

Starscream I think looks really good. I'm tempted to get a trio of him for Rainmaker repaints.

Kickback and Bruticus' weapon are just complete messes.

It's game-accurate. The FoC figures all come with weapons from the game.

There's no G1 version yet. Just G2, Energon, and game-accurate colors.


By G1, I meant the gold & purple Blast Off, the matte green Brawl, the gold & red Vortex, the matte gold & purple Swindle, & the grey Onslaught. Are they the game-accurate colors you're referencing?

So the SDCC is the G2 version & the Amazon exclusive the Energon version, or do I have that backwards?

One still must wonder why Starscream comes with the X12 Scrapmaker instead of Null Rays. :-(

G1 Onslaught was teal. The retail version of him is G1-esque. Vortex was gray in G1, no G1 version of him yet. I'm willing to bet Takara will give us a gray Vortex though.

SDCC = game accurate colors (grey Onslaught and etc.)
Amazon/BBTS = G2 (yellow Onslaught and etc.)
Retail = Energon (blue Onslaught and etc.)

Sideswipe's looking pretty great. Is it me or does Ultra Magnus look a little too blue? He hardly has any white or red on him, and the colors are too dark... not quite as G1 as I would have liked, but I'll probably still pick him up.

Meanwhile I've been seeing galleries of Bruticus elsewhere, and the mold is capable of looking decent if transformed and posed correctly. As much as the neon pains me, I can settle for the retail version. Ideally, if could get the SDCC Swindle and Brawl that would be great, but it's just not in my budget.

Prime got an upgrade i the game. Megatron is in the same body as WFC. No need for a new toy.

I agree with the comments before me, Megatron does get an upgrade.
But I also insist that the mold is absolutely perfect, in my opinion.

As for fatty Prime: It's Optimus Prime. I'm surprised there's no remold/retool of BB.


I just looked at the gallery again, and the sticker on the Combaticons' package made me chuckle:

Motto: "Everyone has a bad hobby or a bad habit and I'd rather have a bad hobby over a bad habit."
Weapon: Rust Ray Gun
First things first. Sideswipe looks a lot better then Jazz, and it looks like his head is a lot bigger and sits higher up then Jazz' noggin'. Can anyone confirm or comment on that (Seibs, lookin' at you here kid)

I like the look of all of them. I'm not sold that "air raid" is really named "air raid". For all we know "Kickback" is still named "Insecticon" I would love it if he isn't but you know.

Sideswipe, like I said look better then Jazz and I think most agree. Don't like the gun, but that could be a combination of display/prototype/picture.

Magnus looks great, but I'm kinda surprised they don't have him packin' a white gun, a hammer that Hasbro clearly wants him to have, and shoulder rockets. Whatever, Dr. Wu will have something for that i'm sure.

Everyone doesn't like how the Combaticons are put together, but you gotta remember what they show are weak testshots and prototypes. Why do you think SS & UM look so rich and bold compared to say Jazz and Prime? It's because they are the hand painted test shots they use for official photos and often times they look like the have some sort of palsy because of the test shots weak plastics. Times that by 5 for Bruticus (mind you lets face it, that combination kinda sucks and don't look anything like the game model.

It's kinda funny that fans wanted a deluxe combiner forever and when we get one it's not up to snuff and on top of that we now have 4 different versions (so far) of the molds.

I just thought of something, possibly others have had the same idea too:

I think we need (brace yourselves, I'm going to say it) another Bumblebee.
You know, something Scout/Cyberverse Commander size, to scale nicely with WfC OP and consequently FoC Grimlock.

Because WfC BB is too big.

Yes? No? Heresy?

You're right. But we also need a FoC Megatron, Perceptor, Cliffjumper, and the rest of the Dinobots & Insecticons. Also, a Skywarp and Thundercracker would be good.
