Excellent news! I haven't been able to find Wing Saber for a reasonable price and he was definitely the one figure from Cybertron that I said "I gotta get me one of those!"

I won't pick up both, though; they look similar enough in vehicle mode and I'm running out of shelf space as it is.

They have colour on them.


Yea I think these repaints look ok, but I agree they could use some more color or at least different grey camo scheme.

Jetfire to Jetstorm and Wingsaber to Wingblade. Am I the only one thinking that it isn't a coincidence that they still start with the same first syllable?

I like Jetstorm a lot and I don't already have the mold so I'll get him. But, I'm not very impressed with Wingblade, so I may pass on him.

Wow, I'm really surprised at all the people saying they will pass on
the Jetstorm. The Jetfire and Sky Shadow versions are selling for around 75 dollars on ebay these days and I love my Sky Shadow.
I can't wait to see the robot modes.

Now these are repaints I can live with. i definitely getting these two should they show up in my TRU. I wanted Jetfire of my own since I finished viewing TF Cybertron. I just might get Wing Saber too.
Hasbro may milking the Movie line with Cybertron repaints, but at least TF enthusiasts like me who skipped Cybertron can get the chance to have Jetfire and Wing Saber figs of their own. :grin:

I have Wingsaber, but not Jetfire. The paint scheme is pretty realistic for the alt mode, so I might go ahead and pick it up.

Actually Scaleface it's the [b:287iw1re]Lockheed AC-130H Spectre[/b:287iw1re] and [b:287iw1re]Lockheed AC-130U Spooky[/b:287iw1re] not the An-225 cargo (That's Russian) plane. The Spectre and Spooky is the bastard child of the C-130 Hercules, Fairchild AC-119 and the AC-47 Gunship (Old Vietnam Gunship)...
Its actually a C-5 Galaxy, the largest cargo plane in the world, just with a different tail section.

meh, i'd take my Cybertron versions over these any day. colors are much better. plus you'd still need Cybertron OP to make that Wing Saber get it's money's worth (i'd be more interested in seeing how Sonic Wing mode looks like using this version of Wing Saber though). i wonder how will they price the Wing Saber, seeing as it's an Ultra, and there are no Ultra-class figures in TFTM.

original versions over repaints any day.

i pass big time, and my wallet thanks me gratefully for it.

:MAX:
all the comments above are the HUMBLE OPINIONS of the said user only. 'nuff sed.
