Weapon: Sniper Rifle
eBay.com- eBay seller, joeyyamamoto, has a listing up for the soon to be released Transformers Animated two-pack of Jetstorm and Jetfire.

These images show the packaging in great detail, including the characters' bios.

"Created using the most advanced techniques known to AUTOBOT science, JETSTORM and JETFIRE were cloned from tech recovered from STARSCREAM. Brought online in a secret laboratory deep beneath CYBERTRON, they are the first AUTOBOTS created specifically to battle the DECEPTICONS. Though they are young, they are extremely intelligent, working their way through the Elite Guard Boot Camp in record time. Together they are potentially the most powerful AUTOBOTS of all time, especially when they combine into their SAFEGUARD form."


"Galactic Powers & Abiliites:
>The only AUTOBOTS that can fly.
>Youngest Elite Guard members of all time.
>The first robots with the ability to combine."

That's a good idea. I believe they were called Darkwind and Dreadwing like the alt mode combining G1 counterparts.

No, he's referring to the guys from G2: Dreadwing and Smokescreen. The ones you named are from G1 (and completely different molds as well).

I only missed one name, but as you can see from the end of my message, I do know he is not talking about the G1 pair. Thanks for the correction.

You are right, they were called Dreadwing and Smokescreen, and reused in BW Neo/2--Starscream and BB, and also re-released as Target exclusives Dreadwing and Smokejumper, I believe.

You mean Darkwing and Dreadwind, who combined into Dreadwing. "Darkwind" is a new name born out of necessity as Disney still owns the "Darkwing Duck" trademark. I know, confusing... 8-}

And yes, I do see a repaint of Jetfire and Jetstorm as those two next year. Yet again with the clich├ęd "evil clone" bit.

These have been out in Oz for a little while, I picked them up last week.

While I was expecting them to be kinda average, I have to say these guys are pretty cool. Yeah, the hands suck in robot mode, and combined spaceship mode is better just ignored, but the singular spaceship mode isn't as crap as the pictures make it look, and it locks together nicely. The fire/ice bits do come out further to form little wings, but I think they look more sleek if not fully extended.

The singular robot modes look really nice (aside from aforementioned hands) and the headsculpts are full of character The combined bot mode is very nice too.

Quite good articulation in both singular and combined robot modes.

And getting a comic with it is a great bonus.

Too bad it doesn't have their individual bios.

It is doubtful that most collectors will display the two in Safeguard mode, but they look nice enough seperately.

The bonus comic is very tempting too! IIRC this will show Jazz kicking their afts in cyber ninja training! :grin:

Actually it was Dreadwind and Smokejumper. But those two did combine into Dreadwing (which is interesting since it might be the first time that that combined form between those two toy molds had a name. I don't recall the combined form of either Dreadwing & Smokescreen or BB & Starscream ever having a name until the release of the RiD versions.)

No, Cybertron doesn't know about the Dinobots, nor would Sentinel and Ultra Magnus bother to mention them to anyone on Cybertron.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO..... I saw these at my local Farmers the other day. If I had already bought the Universe Special Edition Drag Strip there, I would have got this (had I the money for either, which I didn't). Up close, these things look awesome. Too bad I didn't have a notepad and pen with me because the mobile I used took grainy video footage and pictures. Still... I put up news of these sightings on my website the other day. If anyone is interested, here's what I wrote (to sum it up):

Latest Sighting: New Zealand - Universe Special Edition figures (Optimus Prime, Megatron, Overkill and Dragstrip), Jetfire & Jetstorm entertainment pack and Target-exclusive combiner sets Superion and Bruticus Maximus found at Farmers store in New Zealand.

That's what I found. Oh yea, I will take orders. No profit made on my side. I must get Dragstrip and Overkill first though. :P

I thought I'd point out, all the Universe Special Editions, the Target-exclusive combiners and Jetfire & Jetstorm actually all look fantastic up close. The only 2 out of the lot I cared for was Drag Strip and Bruticus Maximus. I was so wrong to think the rest looked like crap.

I still say the side-to-side combining is a bit fail. But the individual figures (when PROPERLY TRANSFORMED and photographed) are looking decent now.

Not the top of my list, but I will likely eventually pick the pair up.

I picked these up earlier this week too.
Not bad. The combining gimmick is kind of cool, but it could be better. The actual transformation from single robots into halves of the combined robot is fairly interesting though.
