I like the Thundercracker repaint of FoC Starscream, but he should have been released as a FoC figure; he doesn't fit in with this group.

The Hoist remold/repaint is great! :APPLAUSE:

What the hell?! I know it seemed obvious, but had it even been confirmed that we were getting Thundercracker?

It is now! :D

We had seen the Clayton Crain artwork, and I believe at Toy Fair it was said that all the Spotlights would get their toy. But I'm not sure. :-?

Trailcutter actually has the forcefield face! :x

Thundercracker (and Hoist, to an extent) is the only new one here.

And he is FLIPPIN' GORGEOUS! =P~

So glad I picked up Fall of Cybertron Starscream. Thundercracker would look fantastic next to Starscream. I really hope Hasbro decides to pump out Skywarp in the near future to complete the set.

I keep saying these two things over and over:

1) As IDW repurposed FoC designs as G1 Cybertronian form, what we have here is G1 Cybertronian Thundercracker.
2) Nobody is stopping you from repurposing. ;)

That I agree with. I don't know what I would do with Orion and Bumblebee though...

5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

I plan to pick up Orion, but not Bumblebee. Even though the mold looks boss, it would seem repetitive of me if I were to get this one, as I already have the original Classics toy. But mark my words, if there is to be a redeco/retool into someone else (Bugbite, perhaps?), then I would be happy to pick it up.

Loving Forcefield Face and his green repaint (greepaint?) and Megatron is pretty good. Shame he's not a Voyager. I like Orion's gun, but that's it for the rest of them. I shan't be pre-ordering the wave set of 4 just to get 2 of them.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

WOW! This whole set is solid. Amazing repaints and retools. Bravo to Pax's weapon as well. Way to meet and exceed expectations. Classics is back strong... and the G2 retool of that stealth jet is going to be a home run as well. Better make a little room on the neo-G2 shelf.

Forcefield face is also for the win. That was a great comic.

FoC Thundercracker!!!!! Yes, I've been waiting for this guy. I've got Takara Starscream and Skywarp on my shelf already and they've been missing their blue buddy :).

All things considered, Orion Pax might make a good Ironhide/Ratchet/Kup in Cybertronian mold. I

Wouldn't it be awesome if we got one where you could alternate modes with the chest over the face - shifts from chest to blast shield like the old War Within appearance?

Wow, that Thundercracker fits the mold way better than Starscream does.
This entire set of toys are all great. Though I might skip on Bumblebee, considering how that mold looks awkward, and it would fit Trailbreaker better.

The Hoist looks great, but it looks like Hasbro can't decide on what Trailcutter's shield is going to look like. The shield Trailcutter is holding is a lot shorter than the one on the roof of his alt-mode.

Anyone know what color Dreadwing is going to be?

I hate how Trailcutter/Hoist has a HUGE barrel chest/upper body and a teeny tiny waist. It reminds me of FoC Jazz. I'll likely still snag Takara's versions of these bots, but I suspect I'll be displaying them in alt mode for the same reason I keep FoC Jazz and Sideswipe in their alt modes (the bot modes look kinda crappy).

I think some were confused by the fact that it was previewed first in the Collectors' Club magazine even though it was clearly advertised as a 'Generations' figure not an upcoming 'Exclusive' figure or anything.

It will be a retail release and there has been no indication from Hasbro or the Club up to this point to indicate otherwise.

I suspect similar treatment to Orion Pax and Megatron/Dreadwing.

To be fair though, Trailbreaker and Host don't look that slim around the waist. This would be considered super thin (if they decide to make a another toy out of him).

I kind of want all of them.... i just might if i have the money by then. But i still dont even have springer or blitzwing! and theres more to come....

Man this year is going to suck financially but its going to be awesome transformally. 8)

Finally hasbro is doing what the fans want. I was out of the loop with transformers since energon and only a few months ago i started to get back into it. very glad and lucky and came back when i did. must be the PERFECT time..

TOO many things are happening in the transformers culture right now! but it's just so.... great.

These figures may look nice for my collection, but I need to see the Takara versions first to guess which version is better. And c'mon, TakBro, won't you give some love to Gears, who needs a new toy (he doesn't have much, so to speak, but why would people give some love for him), otherwise, I'd get (or make) something like this:
