They all look excellent. :D

Based on those covers, the following are guesses as to which comic issues are included with each toy:

Dreadwing - RID #17
Goldfire - RID #18
Waspinator - RID #19
Skids - MTMTE #22

Waspinator is the only one i plan on getting, goldbug & skids look good but unless hasbro changes their ways they're getting very little of my money.

Is it just me or does Skids look to be the biggest out of the lot?

He does look the biggest but I think that is due to the upper torso, those shoulders and wings are quite wide.

Is it just me, or did they change Goldbug's stock photography for his packaging? It looks different to me, I swear.

Waspinator: I can not wait to get him! :DANCE:

Skids: Not crazy about the mold or the color choice, but I need a Classics-verse Skids for my display. :-B

Goldfire and Dreadwing: I already have BB and Megatron, and the molds really aren't that great. I'll pass on these two. >:oP

Not a huge fan of this IDW BB mold, so Goldfire is my least favorite (I already have the United BB w/ Beelzeboss Goldbug Upgrade, which is more Classics-y). I also thing Dreadwing makes WAY better use of this mold than Megatron.

Whatever... gotta catch 'em all!

Skids' shoulder articulation still concerns me. May have to wait until some in hand images or video reviews to consider my purchase.

What's that you say? You like the in-package images, but you would rather see them freed from their plastic prisons? We can oblige! Well, we can for two of the four, but luckily it's the two new molds from the series, Waspinator and Skids! b8921061 of the HK-TF boards has posted the first in-hand images of the eagerly awaited duo. Enjoy the images mirrored below. Waspinator and Skids along with Goldfire and Dreadwing make up the next series of Transformers Generations Deluxes, which will hopefully be showing up at retails sooner than later.

The amount of firepower Skids brings is insane for a Deluxe Autobot. Both he and Waspinator are looking very sharp.

Waspinator's thorax is a mess, but his robot mode is simply divine.

Is Goldfire supposed to kinda look like Movie Bumblebee? The face, I mean.

Those shoulders are worrisome, but I'll still get Skids. I like how his feet have the actual car wheels on the bottom and not fake ones like Hasbro has been known to do lately.

Waspinator is a pass only because I don't collect BW characters. He looks pretty good though.

Why did the photographer rip off the legs of Skids and take a pic of that?
Why didn't he do the same to Waspinator, the bot that gets blown the f**k up in almost every episode he's in?

Waspinator is awesome!

I took the liberty of translating the caption, and guess what: he claims Skids has missassembled hip joints.

Skids looks amazing, tho he suffers from Jazz and Wheelie clown shoe syndrome. Waspinator looks fanfreakingtastic! Only complaint my ONE complaint, they couldn't have found a way for the insect legs to fold up behind his back instead of hanging off his fore arms? Ah well, still will be getting these two. :grin:

Wheeljack wasn't a particularly tall deluxe and Skids looks smaller in both modes. I don't like his legs hollowness either... and those shoulders worry me, too. I SO wanted to like him, but I'm less confident about this figure every time new pics show up...

if you look close at the first laying down pic of skids and the second one (with the legs pulled off) you can see that he's probably reversed the hip pieces... in the first one the slot on the side is much farther back than on the second one - I think whoever did it swapped the left for the right.

Few things: first, I really like this Skids fig...but, he's got some dorky clown shoes. Man are those some big-honking feet! Second does he have swivel wrists? I certainly hope so. I hate it when they leave that feature out of deluxes and up.

Thirdly, I'm not crazy about Waspy's beast mode; I wish it kinda fit together more snugly. But his robot mode is looking sweet!

Skids could certainly be better. Definitely seems to have poor shoulder articulation, and the inside of his legs are a bit of an eyesore.

Waspinator is pure perfect. Both will be bought in some form or Takara.

I like these. However it's aggravating to me how the Voyager figures in this line are really good but the Deluxe class seems kind of cheap. And while they are better, the quality seems close to the relatively poor FOC Deluxe waves(Except for Starscream and Kickback).

See? I said Skids had really limited shoulders but did anyone believe me? Oh no, and now you're all "I don't like the shoulders". It is annoying though, with all that firepower he'd make a great addition.

"You know damn well that Generations/IDWverse is the new classics"


LOL....no its not. That line is dead and this guy taking a pic next to the dead line proves it. That skids looks NOTHING like G1 skids, save the colors. Neither did IDW Hoist or Trailbreaker. To complete your "CHUG" collection you are going to have to either custom your own figures or go 3pt.

Six months ago you were running your mouth about how these were the new classics as well. So, are you trolling or did you genuinely change your mind?

Oh, they're not Classics, yes, but they are still a new kind of G1. "G1" is not limited to just the original cartoon or the 1980s era. If you would just read the IDW comics, you would know this instead of mistaking these for Aligned toys (which they aren't, since the Aligned portion of Generations is dead too).

I am not going to waste my time. Call them what you want. What I observe is a handful of you cannot get over your Classics problem. You think every figure is Classics. I guarantee you that some of you will be shoehorning in TF4 dinobots into your CHUG collection. Am I wrong? LOL......I am right. I know how you operate.

IDW Thundercracker and Skywarp borrowed the designs of their Aligned counterparts. Again, if you read the comics, you'd know this.

I should've said G1 cars. When I think Classicverse, I tend to think of that whole CHUG line, not specifically the Classicverse from the comics.

Nope sorry, but he's right, the Aligned portion of the Generations line is dead for now, it'll likely come back late next year/ early 2015 with the next installment of the Aligned video games.
For now it's idw, with a bit of Movie 4 preview thrown in next year.

That THundercracker is not FOC, as you where told earlier it's idw G1 Thundercracker.
Skywarp is a Takara release, and therefore not part of the actual Generations line and therefore not relevant to this discussion.

Also, it's "you're delusional".

I did read the comic that came with my figure. The IDW Thundercracker looks NOTHING like FOC Thundercracker. Hasbro is just too cheap to create a new mold for it, so they used the FOC Starscream mold. Which is good for aligned fans, because it keeps the line going until the TF3 game comes out, whatever it will be called.

Classics is dead. Hasbro killed it when they went to the new size classes. That is why they hooked up with IDW in the first place. as a new outlet for their new "g1" figure line. At least for now. Personally, I hope it continues because I like the new figures. Unless you want to go 3pt you are screwed on getting figures to fill your holes. And if I collected Classics figures that is exactly what I would do. Either that or custom your own.

LOL....six months later and the same two goons are going on about their G1 crap. Just can't get over it, can you? Keep telling yourselves whatever you want. You, and the few others that creep around this site just waiting for someone like me to say something like I said so you can jump all over it. I have seen your other posts in other threads and that is all you two do in the comments sections. Rail people for having a different opinion about these than you have. Pretty lame.
