Thanks Va'al!

I added a few pictures this morning to Hoist's gallery. I forgot to do some pics of Hoist with his buddy Grapple (*ahem* Solar Storm Grappel) so those pics were added early this morning. Enjoy!

Finally a Hoist figure! Now I will wait for Hound. Please Hasbro release a new Hound figure.

I'm more interested in Hoist than I am Trailbreaker. He just looks awesome.

I need them. Thundercracker especially.

As much as I want these out now, hopefully it will be another month or two down the road before they pop up. I have yet to see the first wave of the Generations: Thrilling 30 toys.

Welcome to Seibertron.com, ~Oceans Moons~! Hasbro released a Hound figure about 5 years ago.

There already is one, in two flavors:



Left is US Universe 2008 Hound, Right is Henkei Hound.

Anyone disappointed by Trailbreaker? I love the mold design, but the transformation kind of sucks. :BANG_HEAD: It's too tight, and doesn't transform all that clean. Not to mention the general small-ness of the truck. :roll: It's really too bad Trailbreaker couldn't be released years ago, and slightly larger.

But anyway, it does not transform well for me. The arms don't seem to tuck into the truck too well. #-o

Maybe he wants a Commander-class hound? With the new scale on Megatron and Starscream, everything is just screwed up... :BANG_HEAD:

I'm not a big fan of the new scale... It does not merge well with the old toys. #-o

The Seekers do just fine, since the Classics Seekers are so short anyway. :lol:

a generations G1 inspired Arcee would be nice

Cue someone informing you of Energon Arcee some XX years ago... :roll:

I really doubt any G1 character will make the new release list, other than SS, Megatron, BB, and Optimus.

("Correction! Some other G1's were actually previewed at Botcon and SDCC! Heh huh heh huh!" :-B )

Yeah, I know, but my point is that Hasbro has a very narrow focus lately. Remolds of BB and Optimus in 5 more scales is far more likely than a G1 Arcee! :roll: But hey, some loyal Hasbro-ites believe in miracles! :grin: :michaelbay:

The only Generation One inspiration we got in Energon Arcee was her traditional colors, and her feminine build.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Generations Arcee. Hell, the War for Cybertron design is straight-up Arcee.

Hey, gotta keep the kiddos pleased too, you know? >:oP

Never hurts to dream :) In the 6 to 7 years of the total Classics-range (Classics, Universe, Generations) we've yet to see repeated upgrades. And now that Hasbro's dipping into the more risky and obscure, we should get Arcee sooner or later.

Mental Note: Bug IDW until they include Arcee into their current range. Extreme methods may be necessary

uh yeah.. i already know and have energon arcee and that does not fit a generations arcee. the animated arcee makes a better G1 arcee than the energon one. i'm talking like they have done for hoist or springer something along the lines like their doing now... give her figure a damn car mode for once.

The iGear Delicate Warrior is still the best G1 Arcee in my book. It would be nice if Hasbro released one, but I'm not climbing the wall, waiting for her since I picked up the iGear. Plus the Hasbro version will probably be the IDW take which I'm not all that keen on.

Hoist and Thundercracker are already ordered. I have Starscream and Skywarp so it'd be nice to complete the trio without the headaches that came with getting the Classics trio complete.

I do wish Hoist came with a more elaborate towing apparatus that turned into his wings but it's not a big deal. I probably won't pick up the third party wings.

Christ, those Seekers are disgusting. The worst aspects of movie Starscream spliced together with a clunky attempt at a G1 Seeker silhouette. Very nasty.

To Seibertron, JelZe GoldRabbit and Metrosuplex.

Thank you for thinking about helping me. Sorry I didn't specify, but I already know about the two different Hound figures. I was just hoping for a newer one to be released...since well every time I find the older models from 5 years ago they're too expensive. Oh and I'm a girl by the way XD. I apologize for re-posting stuff or anything being posted on a different area here on Seibertron.com. I'm still trying to figure things out on this site. :BANG_HEAD:
