Thanks to the vigilant eye of SW's SilverHammer, we have been pointed in the direction of eBay seller lena81822, infamous for getting upcoming Transformers and putting them up on eBay. Today's offering from them? The upcoming Generations Deluxe Windblade! The figure is heavily mistransformed in robot mode, but nonetheless, these are our first in-hand images of the fan-built City Speaker outside of Toy Fair and BotCon coverages. The images have been mirrored below!

Oh god, that is a hideous mis-transformation. Otherwise, figure looks great!

I'm guessing these guys are NOT gang-molded, given Nemesis isn't half yellow?


Almost definitely not gang-molded given the release of four of the Targetmasters as campaign "microns" recently. I think they learned their lesson on why gang molding isn't smart with the first 10 minicon teams.

Mis-transformed or not that is by far the ugliest Transformer I've ever seen. The jet mode looks good and I'm floored the sword has a sheath but, it's just ugly.

Maybe it's just the excellent art and personality of Sarah Stone's drawing style, but it seems like no medium other than the Windblade comic matches up her design with her personality. Every other one, the toy included, gives her a generic, aloof, detached look that doesn't help her character stand out as an earnest if naive civil servant.

Hi, I'm new here and from Germany so sorry if my english isn't the best.
To all the people who said ugly Robotmode, I can see that the shoulders of Windblade are not in the right transforming position. I think when it's done the right way it will be look much better. Have nice day.

For this post I had to make an account :x

I have to disagree with you:

This.

I think the body could be a little more petite looking and her features could be less...cold? Sorry, IMHO, Windblade is freaking adorable looking.

Ouch! And I thought Hasbro's photographers were bad! :lol: :lol:

Anyway, I never noticed the scabbard before. That is a NICE touch for a figure.

I hate to say it but it looks like Hasbro just looked at the poll went across the columns and just went with what was there without anyone thinking; gee, will this work?

Looks like few people wont buy her since she is mistransformed.

On a side note, I'm surprised with all the negative fan outcry, no one's added windblade (and fembots in general at this point) to the Ruined FOREVER page of TFWiki

I've been wanting to repurpose one of my TFs as Raiden from the video game, Metal Gear Rising and that sword and sheath remind me of Raiden's.
Nonetheless, I cannot wait to obtain a Windblade! : )

If this figure is still garbage after release perhaps a 3rd Party can improve where our HasTak friends failed...again. Way to go guys. ;)^ Anyway there had to be the one lousy TF among a bunch of great ones..'nuff said! :VEHI:

I just can't wait to see all the repaints and remolds this figure will get, you have to know those are coming since this was a completely new mold and tooling.

I'm telling you guys, Hasbro would be complete and total morons if they don't squeeze a Slipstream out of Windblade. It wouldn't be perfect fit, but it would be a hugely missed opportunity if it doesn't happen.
