Cybertron.CA member Pascal found some interesting new information.

It appears that we will be getting more Cybertron toy line repaints as movie toy line figures. The next molds to get the repaint treatment are the Wingsaber mold as Wingblade, and the Jetfire mold as Jetstorm.

You can check out the in package images below!

Cool. Are they supposed to the planes that fired on Scorponok? I'd like to see picks of their robot modes, but I imagine it's just the same colors but with that AllSpark blue.

These guys are a big dull on color, but I did the math and I think they are the biggest Autobot and Decepticon in the movie yet. If Wingblade is an A-10 jet he would stand 50 feet 9 inches in robot mode. If Jetstorm is an An-225 cargo jet, he would stand 204 feet tall in robot mode! He could pick up Blackout like a little kid.

This is a tough call for me...I really don't like the Cybertron Jetfire mould, but the drab colour is pretty slick for a Decepticon. Wingblade, now, I love the figure, but I already have one, so I dunno.

Looks like I will finally have to get a Wing Saber for my Cybertron Optimus. I never found him initially, so this is a good thing. Looks like TRU is going to get a little bit of my money.

Actually Scaleface it's the Lockheed AC-130H Spectre and Lockheed AC-130U Spooky not the An-225 cargo (That's Russian) plane. The Spectre and Spooky is the **** child of the C-130 Hercules, Fairchild AC-119 and the AC-47 Gunship (Old Vietnam Gunship)...

I certainly hope so, otherwise I will be quite pissed off when I get it. Considering they have not remolded any of the S7 stuff, I wouldn't count on them removing it.

I'd really need to see bot mode pics to form an opinion on these guys. I already own Wingblade's mold and he's nice but I never picked up Jetstorm's.

I looked at pictures of the Lockheed AC-130s and I just don't see the resemblence. Wings are not swept back, the tail only has one fin. He's definitely not Jetfire (unless I'm not looking at the right jet of course, throw me a picture if you can find a good example).

The AC-225 has Jetfire's wing shape. It's not perfect, but it's the closest I've seen. See the attached picture.

I think the realistic colors look great!

Can't wait to see what the robot modes look like. And Jetstorm's head looks like Soundwave so that's pretty slick.

I truly hope that this truth. I did not get a chance to pick up the original of Wing Blades mold during Cybertrons run, and that paint job is nice. I will keep both eyes open for this one.

Dude, those are freaking sweet. Wal-Mart did the right thing and remolded those 4 Cybertron Deluxe Figs, and now Toys'r'us has also done a great thing and remolded these 2 Voyager Figs!

Ironic how there was a Cybertron Jetfire hoax inside of a Movie Line Box, and now in the end, Cybertron Jetfire will be inside of a Movie Line Box!
