Looking a little better, but are their hands molded so the elbows bend inwards when the hands are positioned normally, like on Blackarachnia?

How are those hands?
They're stumps with pictures of hands on them.
Still passing on this set.

I had a feeling that they would end up having hands along those lines. It's not great, but it's not horrible either. I'll end up getting these. The more I see them the more I like them.

I like them...but they REALLY should have painted those "hands" (for both single and combined modes) so it wouldn't look like such a cheap attempt.

I'll end up getting them and just painting the hands orange on Jetfire and gold on Jetstorm.

They look so much better than those previous pics below!

The combined mode actually looks proportional!

THEY HAVE HANDS?! Oh man, then I HAVE to get them.

I'm SO not buying this.

That makes me happier, because i'll save some money for better figures once they come out. It's a refreshing break for someone who has been steadily buying transformers for the last year. Thanks Hasbro for awful figures. They make wonderful blowout sales when the season is off, and i may be getting them if they fall under the ten dollar mark, just to give them to my dog as a chewing toy.

Their looking better to be. Might be finding a way to color the hands to make them stand out a little more, but you never know.

I will be getting these because aside from a few repaints and activators AND of course the battle bumpers and crap along that line, I want to get a complete Animated collection. But I do have to say.... THIS IS ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC! I mean, look at those things! They're not hands, they're a weak attempt at making their nose-cone halves resemble hands! And the combined form looks stupid with the two horribly clashing colours and stupid fists. You can't even give them another figure's weapons to use! They look half-decent apart from this but I wish we got something good, just once.... I want to see a better combined jet form too. Jetfire is disgusting. I would have been okay if his head looked better and the name was changed to something else. I guess those names suit them but to use Jetfire on such a f****d-up toy is crazy. Jetstorm is the better of the two anyway! Damn it, I was hoping for a really good Jetfire movie. Well, with him pretty much confirmed for TF2 (and I have heard that yes, there is a figure of him that has been made although apparently the majoirty of figures are repaints - only some are new molds), hopefully he's a lot better in the movie than in Animated.

IMO this is a horrible toy. The fact that that plastic monstrosity bears the name 'Jetfire' makes me ill..... 8-} How's that for spite? :lol:

You could do better.

I told you guys that they had hands. I noticed them when I saw the first pics.

Still looking like a waste of good plastic.

I guess you can call them hands sort of. When I think of hands for a transformer there not just part of main form they have the ability to hold a gun or some other sort of weapon.

Hundreds of Micromasters, Minicons and Minibots would disagree with you.

TFU Tankor's hands aren't much better.

I really wanted to like this set, But there is going to be so much other product to buy in the next few months that I can easily pass on this 2-Pack.

At least we finally got to see better pictures at least.

Looking better, and looking pretty good in individual robot modes too. Would be nice if they had painted the hands in all 3 robot modes and maybe made the feet neear the combined robot hands disappear a bit better.

Much better though...

Geat! It has hands! What are odds that paint job is just a photo-edit mistake?

Yeah, no new combo jet pics. The real Jetfire's gonna be pissed.
