Japanese Transformers News site - Autobase Aichi has posted the prototype images of the possible Generations Warpath.

Same as his Generation 1 counterpart, Warpath transforms into a combat tank. Although there is no further information on the size of the figure, but we can assume that Warpath should be at least a Deluxe Class toy.

Bought, wonder who the repaint will be?

Looks great! I like the shorter canon on the chest.

Just hope the head gets a ball joint. Some jointed feet would be nice as well. For that flat footed stance. Those should be a prerequisite in the design process nowadays. IMO.

odds are he might get painted up as the decepticon tank quake or even any of the decepticon micromaster tanks or perhaps even as brawl

brawl would be sweet

Is it just me or does anyone else get a "Jumpstarter" vibe from that picture of him in robot mood with his arms and legs straight?
They did a great job on this one. Same general design as his Legends figure but they bulked him up just a bit without giving him so much bulk that he'd look slow and awkward. Can't wait to get this one.

Sexy. Doesn't fall into one of my categories, so I can't afford to pick it up, but this is my favorite tank in a long time.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! bought on sight :grin:

another instant win from the generations line

am too wondering what the repaint will be - there are some obscure g1 tanks like guzzle and quake and members of the autobot micromaster battle patrol..

now all i need is to win the lotto, so that i can spend my time recreating the g1 cartoon with cell rendered cgi based off the generations/classics toys....

I need two. One for kitbashing into a double-barreled Mammoth Tank.

Day one!!

He looks so awesome and if the paint scheme from that other picture is a representation of what we're getting then that's even more awesome.
Re: Prototype Images of Generations Warpath (1175199)
Posted by rpetras on January 29th, 2011 @ 12:49pm CST
I like it.

I'm hoping it isn't a deluxe. If it is a voyager, it will fit with Seaspray and Powerglide et al as another one of the Super-sized mini-bots.

If he is a scout class, that would just fit with the neo-G1 theme I have going on. :)

With the earlier pics I was a little disappointed they went with an "H" tank design, but these pics seem to show they have hidden that aspect a little in the layout of the alt mode.
Kudos on that!! :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

Posted by RiddlerJ on January 29th, 2011 @ 12:52pm CST
Oh Yeaaaaaaaaaaah. :grin:

Every time I tell myself it's time to stop spending on these, a mold like this comes along.

Maybe he'll be repainted into Gutcruncher like the legends class was (okay, that one was Sparkcruncher but still the same intent)
Re: Prototype Images of Generations Warpath (1175203)
Posted by germismith on January 29th, 2011 @ 12:53pm CST
Yeah, I hope he's Voyager, though I was really hoping for a WFC Warpath. Hehe :-?

Very nice! Good to see Warpath finally getting a great figure. Can't wait to get him.
Re: Prototype Images of Generations Warpath (1175205)
Posted by cannonfodder4000 on January 29th, 2011 @ 12:58pm CST
Yay! he's still an H-tank! for some reason I just love those things! :D, can't say I like the head too much though, mainly because it has a neck (which was my main problem with Universe Onslaught), but I can look past that! :D

RiddlerJ wrote:Maybe he'll be repainted into Gutcruncher like the legends class was (okay, that one was Sparkcruncher but still the same intent)


I would reeally like that! 8) I always thought the Universe Silverbolt mold would work for him, but it would have him transforming into the jet he had as an Actionmaster instead of a tank! :D

Posted by SlyTF1 on January 29th, 2011 @ 12:59pm CST
Man, I thought it would be the WFC version (same with the Arcee one). Oh well, this one still looks awesome!
Re: Prototype Images of Generations Warpath (1175208)
Posted by Mkall on January 29th, 2011 @ 1:04pm CST
damn that looks good.

No question at all this will be bought
Re: Prototype Images of Generations Warpath (1175210)
Posted by Screamfleet on January 29th, 2011 @ 1:08pm CST
he looks really nice. Though, I have to say, I'm getting pretty tired of tanks. I hope he's the last tank for a while.
Re: Prototype Images of Generations Warpath (1175215)
Posted by Optimus1138 on January 29th, 2011 @ 1:16pm CST
This looks extremely awesome! Far better than I could have imagined (not that I was expecting it to be bad or anything). I'll definitely be getting this figure.

Another one bought on sight. :)

And guys, he's a Deluxe. See the hips joints? The openings on the side indicate ball joints, something hardly ever, if ever, found on Voyagers, but are mainly on Deluxes and Scouts. He looks too hefty for a Scout, so...

Looks awesome! Definitely a must-buy. Kinda looks like a scorpion from Halo haha, the way the treads are separated

Posted by GetRightRobot on January 29th, 2011 @ 1:50pm CST
:APPLAUSE: Just wonderful. :APPLAUSE:

So, guzzle, quake, brawl, all of them :x . It may not be WFC, but it's close enough for me!!!

I have a feeling this is going to be reveal the shield voyager. I know the walmart listing said it was gonna be generations but it looks like reveal the shield to me. After all he was in the battle in space comic.

So was Kup, yet he was in the Generations line. I say Deluxe, ball joints in hips.

It would be an extremely well detailed deluxe (the tank trends rock!), but someone mentioned the stress relief slots cut into the top of thigh for a ball joint. It is a deluxe my friend, or we are about to get taken for $10.

Posted by ShardFenix on January 29th, 2011 @ 2:16pm CST
this is a definite buy on site. So going by geneartaions wave design with 2 old and 2 new then he could be part of the following...

THundercracker, Wheeljack, Warpath, and unknown

That is slaggin awesome, all but the firing missile, i hate firing missiles. So far i think generations (all iterations including clssics & universe) is the best tf line ever, every character they've done has been great.

Sadly, because of the sculpted neck I dont think he'll have a balljoint there :-(, and atleast he has forward and backward movement on the feet. <=D

I don't get why the tail has to be so long. im sure its some stupid anti-choking measure for young children...but i am definitely going to shave off the back of that missile. its about as bad as hailstorms.

I guess I forgot about that. My bad.

Fuck yeah. Looks like they've finally gotten it right with a tank.

I just realized that he may have wheels in his feet due to how he has wheels in him arm treads....He's got heelys lol

Wonder when we'll see an Arcee?
Re: Prototype Images of Generations Warpath (1175298)
Posted by puttster3 on January 29th, 2011 @ 3:55pm CST
I was thinking deluxe due to the size of the wheels on the treads compared to the width of the arms.

We could of course have someone doing the math by measuring certain parts of one picture, comparing some of those to another one to tell the difference between the two and etc. yadayada yada.
All assuming that those holes are 5mm.

But then, who would want to do that???

To whom ever tries it, make sure you have insurance against this :BOOM: in all its forms.

Freaking KAPOW awesome! Looks great, love that they used the same retractable barrel as the legends version.

The Legends version had a repaint, so maybe we'll see something comparable to Sparkcrusher...

I don't know about that. I think we could be seeing Decepticon Brawl to go along with the Ultra sized Onslaught we got...that is one name they still have trademark on.

Bought.

On.

Sight.

I need a job...anyone need a licensed RN?
