Can't wait to get Springer.

Don't know who swerve is but I like him.

Cliff just doesn't look right with that.

Wheelie: Kill it before it starts a new hive.

Can't wait to see the voyagers in hand now.

Springer looks amazing. Too bad they didn't retool his feet into something less bayformer.

i'm warming up a bit to Springer but that Wheelie has got to go. i still wish Wheelie was still in legends or scout class or make him about same scale as classics deluxe Bumblebee.

I don't like Swerves head in fact i'm not fussed at all about him the same for cliffjumper.

Wheelie is growing on me i like these photos of him.

Springer should be in my hands in the next week or two .

Classics head on TFP body looks wrong.

Wheelie shouldn't look like an orange Jazz.

Springer shouldn't be yet another helicopter-but-not-car-not-triple-changer.

I see a red Kup.

Springer has the best head sculpt, but still cannot top Warbot Defender.

Wheelie looks cool but did they have to give his slingshot a gun handle ? REALLY ???

So that is how Has/Tak makes good on their promise to re-issue 1st edition figures ? Dr. Wu is gonna make some serious money selling those zombie heads...

Wait until November, that's when the FE figures will be re-released as Toys 'R Us exclusives: Optimus Prime, Bulkhead, Arcee, Vehicon, and believe it or not, Terrorcon Cliffjumper.

And the more I see them, the more I want them, in this order:

1) Springer (I'll have to hunt the BotCon 2007 version for his ground mode)
2) Swerve
3) Wheelie
4) Cliffjumper

As a side note, these will be TRU exclusives as well.

I like them all. I'm wondering if I should get another RiD Cliffjumper and see if I can switch heads with this GDO Cliffjumper, and then give GDO Cliffjumper's head to Classics Cliffjumper. Hmmm....

I'm really digging Swerve. Looks like Wheelie still has Jazz's speakers. Springer's nice too, but I don't have much use for him.

Im not a TF Prime collector, but I do want a 1st edition Bulkhead to go head to head with RTS Lugnut in my classics line. BTW, what does GDO stand for ???

I'm happy to hear that these are coming stateside.

Swerve is repaint excellence. I love the RTS Jazz mold, but Wheelie is kind of a lackluster choice(might he make a sufficient MP Wheelie?), Legends Wheelie fills that Classic role nicely.

Springer looks great, but I think he'll go much better on my G1-homage Bayformer shelf, since the Classics spot is already filled w/Warbot Defender. Ditto for Cliffjumper, he'll probably be better as Prime CJ, since the Classics spot is already filled and modified w/the Devil Horns upgrade.

Either way, they all look pretty good, I'm now eager for late fall. :grin:

I don't get all the Wheelie hate, sure the character was terrible in '88,
but IDWs Spotlight made me like him a bit, and this new toy is a guaranteed hit!


Seriously, the more I see of Wheelie the more I like him, and that Springer is the same. Warbot Defender is cool, no argument, but he's expensive, and honestly, more than I really feel I need from a Springer. He's quite dark looking too, colour wise. This version of the character has the colours right, and looks really good from the waist up, I'm even coming around to liking his legs for what they are, and as far as alt modes, I'm okay with Springer just being a helicopter, for a while at least. There's a lot of Autobot cars.

Swerve looks lovely in robot too, and if I can get him for a good price, I'll take him. I'm not too bothered about the character, and might rename him. Likewise Cliffjumper. These two are maybes, but I want Springer and Wheelie.

Swerve looks surprisingly good but I don't need him.

Same for CJ, especially because I have the FE version already.

I really like Wheelie but he's just too damn big. I can't have him be taller than practically every other deluxe... XD

Springer is an absolute must buy though. I can't figure out where his sword goes in alt mode... between his legs?

My TRU is terrible with exclusives. I'll probably not see any of this stuff tbh. Why can't they give some good exclusives to Wal-Mart since it has to sell the most Transformers in the States? Crazy.
Re: In-Hand Images: Transformers Generations GDO Deluxes Swerve, Wheelie, Cliffjumper, and Springer (1400771)
Posted by craggy on July 14th, 2012 @ 5:01pm CDT
yeah, Wheelie will be super tall, especially compared to any new toys we get, but he looks AMAZING, is made from a great toy, has the slingshot and will be far cheaper than the Legends version, if I could even find it. I'm just gonna run with the it.

Exactly. Other stores like walmart and target can also sell exclusives too. Actualy it would be better for more exclusives to be sold at bigger stores because more people go there and there are just more walmarts than toysrus. Well atleast I'll be able to get them online or drive 150 miles one way.

Cliffjumper: I alsmost wish i didn't get RID Prime Cliffjumper, but seeing as this Cliff doesn't look at all like he did in G1 i'll have to pass. I currently have Alternity Cliff among my Classics and he looks good.

Springer: Don't like the mold, never did those feet look ridiculous.

Swerve: Not liking this, needs his own mold that is appropriate to the carmode he had in G1.

Wheelie: I had to admit i like the headsculpt and the weapon is ok, but why allspark baby blue? I also think he needs his own carmode mold.

Swerve is the only one I'm remotely interested in, but I already have the Chevy Aveo one as my classics Swerve.

Springer and Cliffjumper both look lame as hell, those heads just look wrong on those bodies.

Wheelie's color scheme looks nice, but that mold doesn't fit the character at all.

Posted by Sodan-1 on July 15th, 2012 @ 8:16pm CDT
No, no, no aaaaand no! The problem I have with these is that the characters have some pretty signature design features and these molds irreversibly belong to the original owners. They don't look like who they're meant to be. In Cliffjumper's case that's not such a problem, but at the same time I wouldn't know which collection to put him in.

I like the way Cliffjumper turned out.
Wheelie looks Great.
Swerve is possible.
Springer..................PASS. He's supposed to be a triple changer, Hasbro.....

Seconded. I'm kinda considering this for a Classics stand-in. I'm already using RiD Arcee as my Classics Chromia, and a couple Animated figures (Swoop and Arcee) so design aesthetic is not of high concern. I kinda dig the mixed look. In this case, it would serve to distinguish Cliff even further from Bumblebee, which I like. Someone earlier mentioned Alternity Cliffjumper, I've been considering him for this spot as well. GDO Cliff is cheaper though.

No love for Swerve or Wheelie.

My Botcon 2007 Springer will keep his spot, thankyou.

And what the bloody heck does GDO stand for?

yeah, I'd jump at the chance to get some more weapons on him and a couple of proper legs. They could even...if they were super-sneaky, somehow engineer a couple weapon pods and boots that added on to the vehicle mode...maybe making it a vaguely car-like thing? Not that I'm bothered, Springer is "the mighty helicopter" I'm after, but were he to have some shoes he'd be improved a bit.

Shoes :lol: . Since his feet fold up on his shins i would imagine it been quite an easy task for HR to design some new boots to clip on his legs maybe give him some extra height throw in a laser rifle , rotor sword , new head (even though this head is pretty damn good) i'm sure it would be another must have kit.

:-?
What with the repaint/redeco business that has happened with Ironhide/Kup via the TF Prime molds, I was wondering if anyone would mind seeing the Asia GDO Swerve made up as Classics/Generations Ironhide?

Could the Classics Ironhide head be removed and popped onto the Asia Swerve with perhaps a touch more red paint on his torso?

I just need to track down a Wheelie to complete the Deluxes...

As for GDO, I was under the impression it stood for Generations Direct Order or Generations Distributed Overseas?
