Once again Amazon brings us high quality official images of upcoming Transformers figures! This morning we have the highly anticipated Transformers Generations IDW Style Deluxe Series 4. This wave features Starscream in his new Armada styled body, Skywarp using the FOC Seeker body, Scoop with Holepunch & Tracer, and the Mini-Con Assault Team. This is the first time we've had an official name attached to the Mini-Con combiner, hopefully the bio will give names to the three individual bots. Check out the images mirrored below.

Who was it that said the minicons might be the Ammonites? Good call, yo. Good call.

But man...I really hope Hasbro gives us a Scrapper redeco/retool of Scoop. I already have a stand-in for Scoop in my Wreckers, but I gots ta have mah favs Constructicon.

Scoop looks better in-package than in the stock photos. :KREMZEEK:

Im not digging the "go go gadget copter" on the Minicons combined mode. What faction are they anyway ? It's not like theyre homages to any of the Armada minicons who were neutral. Scoop looks awesome. Starscream looks better with Takara paint. And I guess Skywarp is cool so you can make the Takara version a Rainmaker. I wouldnt mind getting Acid Storm and Sunstorm in that mold too.

I was thinking of doing something fun for my (eventual) Seekers display. Change up the molds for each of the 3:

Generations Armada Starscream
Fenerations FOC Thundercracker
TF: Prime Dark Energon Starscream (as Skywarp)

As it is, I kind of wish they gave FOC Skywarp the same treatment as the Prime Dark Energon version, but what can you do.

Every single one of these. Bought. No questions asked.

Especially that Armada Starscream. :x

Very cool. I'm loving the designs of all 4 and they shall all be added to my collection but I'm very curious as to how Scoop (and the mini-con team) warrants enough importance to be added to the Generations line when there are so many other characters that have not been given decent attention. Their designs are great, I have to give them that but I still think the resources could have gone to other figures and designs.
Also, while Starscream does look cool in his re-hashed attire, I think that was one design that didn't translate quite as beautifully in the smaller size as it does in the larger versions. Won't stop me from getting it but it's not looking quite as cool as the earlier promo shots made it appear.

I'm curious about the pack-in comics more so than the figures themselves since, excluding Skywarp, they all look to be utterly puny. The labeling for Screamer specifically notes "Armada Starscream" so does that mean there will be a newly made comic for him set in the Armada universe, will it just re-hash an old Dreamwave issue, or will it just be a relabeled Dark Cybertron comic?

It's an issue of Dark Cybertron, since Starscream will be rebuilt into this body. They probably labeled him "Armada Starscream" because that'll be the [strike]second[/strike] third Starscream in the Generations line.

Hold your horses, he's coming. ;) He's predicted to be released during the first quarter of 2014.

Awesome. Scoop looks amazing and I will love to finally have a complete seeker set.

Actually, they seem to be based on another race of diminutive robots in the IDW comics, divided between Ammonites and Terradores. The three belong to the evil Ammonites, and thus would likely be labeled Decepticons in other lines. And this confirms Hasbro will slap "Mini-Con" on any small robot. :BANG_HEAD:

The Ammonites look a little worse in this image than in previous ones, but I'm still intrigued.. :x

It never fails. I'm on the cusp of getting a thorough Minicon faction, and Hasbro steps in to further complicate matters.

Well that's intensely disappointing, as I would rather not associate the IDW/G1 version of the character with the Armada/UT version... especially when it's got "Armada" printed all over the package :BANG_HEAD:

Well, it's not like he's going to be renamed "Armada Starscream" post plastic (metal?) surgery.

It looks as if Armada Starscream is a little smaller than the FOC Seeker. It's what I was anticipating, but its a real bummer. A Voyager version would've been best and the FOC Seeker is as small as I could accept. Yet, I can't just pass him up. :roll:
