Windcharger is great!

And what is Brimstone? Las Vegas style?

Pass on the Brimstone repaint, but Windcharger's an instant buy. Though Soundwave was my very first TF back in the day, Windcharger was my firt Autobot TF. His design has come a long, satisfying way since then.

Hey, I like these, might pick up both. But the rubsign on Windcharger makes him look like he's in a gang with Lockdown or somethin! It should have been on top of his roof to be proper old school.

Awesome. CAN NOT WAIT for Windcharger. Definitely looking forward to Generations in 2011. Nice to know I'll have something to collect in the official lines again. These third party stuff is getting expensive. :grin:

I guess I will get Brimstone afterall, this repaint really doesn't look that good. Windcharger on the other hand looks great. Will definitely pick him up when I see him. I wonder if they'll make any more of the smaller bots from g1 into scouts. Brawn would probably look really good as a scout over his legends form.

I'm confused about having a scout class Windcharger. It's part of the Generations line but there are currently no other Scouts planned for the line, nor have there been any scouts under the "Classics" universe. Makes me wonder what other Scouts might be planned.

Windcharger is absolutely beautiful, perfect representation of his G1 self...even with a rub sign!

Posted by adamassc on September 22nd, 2010 @ 7:08pm CDT
that Windcharger's a win for sure. I'm still undecided whether to use him or Hubcap for a Speedbreaker repaint.

More like WIN-charger!!!

Ugh, that was terrible. Anywho, 2011 is looking good, now if we can just get everything from Generations into the stores before the peg space is taken over by Movie 3, we will be in good shape!

A Scout-class figure may not be the largest or most complicated Transformer in the world, but they certainly know how to make a great-looking toy out of it. Windcharger is gorgeous.

If the Brimstone repaint is actually a little more purple and a little less pink than the picture shows, I'm getting a feel of Armada Sideways. But we already have a Sideways in the movie line, right?

Generations Sideways?

Although I like the Cykill idea. That was one of the first things I thought of repainting Brimstone into...

Windcharger's total win.

Brimstone should have been repainted into another Junkion to go with the upcoming Wreck-Gar

These bastards will be released in the HFTD scout line and will include more new scouts and a few repaints like Hubcap into Big Daddy, although they lost the name for it. On of the guys at the design panel said he had more to show us, but they had to trim some out. Personally, I'm chomping at the bit for a scout sized Warpath, Powerglide, NEW Bumblebee done right, Gears, Wheelie or Pipes.

But on topic I think the best thing about Windcharger besides having a great head sculpt, besides having a great bot and vehicle mode that pays crazy homage to the original G1 charager, the best thing is that he comes with his Electro-Magnet. Just the icing on the cake.

So pumped!

I was under the impression that Windcharger would be definitively released under the Generations line rather than the movie/HFTD line.

Windcharger is 100% intended for the Generations line, however Generations will be limited to Deluxe figures only. So figures like Windcharger, Grapple, and Lugnut are being put in the HFTD line as a way to please fans. So far it's working. :grin:

HFTD Lugnutz? I know there's a Voyager class Lugnut coming, so Hasbro might not want to us two similar names, but the paint job still says Lugnutz to me.

Either way, want both. :KREMZEEK:

I love the cartoon accurate head on Windcharger there. Also, the bumper chest works for me. Sweet! He's even got his electro magnetic ray there! (It's on the right arm)

I wonder what the alternate head mold will be? At the very least, we should be getting a Tailgate and Rook repaint out this mold.

Windcharger looks real good.

Hopefully there'll be a Tailgate version of this mold later on.

First thought: 'Junkion?' Second thought: 'Nah.' :lol:

Windcharger's bought! Makes me wish I hadn't trashed my keychain version, and glad I didn't sell my Alternator, even if it's not really him.

lol, indeed. Almost as good as your avatar. :lol:

Also, I wish Hasbro wouldn't go so crazy with the images. The colors are really saturated and very pinkish. Could do with a lot more of a natural look.

That Windcharger is faeces hot! Not a fan of the Scout class typically, but this is an instant buy.

A rubsign on a scout class? Anyway, Windcharger is a buy on sight.

I'm so confused with Brimstone and Grimstone. Oh well, the G one in PCC dino mode looks much better.

Posted by Windsweeper on September 23rd, 2010 @ 11:38am CDT
Anyone else getting a Tarantulus vibe from that bike?

Windcharger looks amazing. He's going to look great along with the likes of G1 Prowl, Encore Ironhide + custom head and Robotmasters Mirage. I know he's meant to be a mini-bot but in the UK comics, most Autobots were drawn the same size.

I love Basic/Scout cars because they look well with my beloved Diaclones.

I will say one thing. The head is great, cartoon accurate but it still reminds me of Megatron's G1 toy. Maybe we could get Megaplex out of this or am I the only one who sees this?

Posted by GuyIncognito on September 23rd, 2010 @ 2:31pm CDT
I still don't care for the Brimstone mold (too skeletal), but I'll HAVE to buy Windcharger since he's a sweet homage to one of my favorite old G1 toys.

Someone help me out on the scale of a "scout" class. In the generations line I've been pretty much sticking to the "deluxe" class I suppose (I haven't paid too much attention to classes) with sunstreaker, sideswipe, prowl, etc.

I wasn't a fan of the legends (too small and simple if you ask me) but where does scout fall in there? midway between deluxe and legend maybe? If you stood that windcharger next to say deluxe hound, where would he reach? Shoulder height? waist?

Scouts can vary a little in height, but most fall around abdomen tall compared to an average deluxe. Give me a minute and I can snap a photo of a few Scouts next to Uni Hound.

With the G2 nostalgia at Botcon, hopefully at some stage we'll get a head remold and repaint of Windcharger as Zap/Windbreaker.

Go with Windcharger. If it helps, go look at Alt. Decpeticharge or even BT Arcee, who has Windcharger's intended head mold.

Windcharger being one of the Very first Transformers I ever got as a kid, I was really excited to see him in the generations lineup, though I'm a little disappointed he's not Deluxe class. I will get him when he comes out without a second thought.
