Cybertron.CA member Pascal found some interesting new information.

It appears that we will be getting more Cybertron toy line repaints as movie toy line figures. The next molds to get the repaint treatment are the Wingsaber mold as Wingblade, and the Jetfire mold as Jetstorm.

You can check out the in package images below!

Cool. Are they supposed to the planes that fired on Scorponok? I'd like to see picks of their robot modes, but I imagine it's just the same colors but with that AllSpark blue.

These guys are a big dull on color, but I did the math and I think they are the biggest Autobot and Decepticon in the movie yet. If Wingblade is an A-10 jet he would stand 50 feet 9 inches in robot mode. If Jetstorm is an An-225 cargo jet, he would stand 204 feet tall in robot mode! He could pick up Blackout like a little kid.

This is a tough call for me...I really don't like the Cybertron Jetfire mould, but the drab colour is pretty slick for a Decepticon. Wingblade, now, I love the figure, but I already have one, so I dunno.

I already have both the figures, and I normaly do not like repaints, but I'm liking these alot, and may just put them on the list.

Looks like I will finally have to get a Wing Saber for my Cybertron Optimus. I never found him initially, so this is a good thing. Looks like TRU is going to get a little bit of my money.

DO you suppose Wingblade will still have the combiner feature? That could look awesome on Cybertron Prime... :-?

Actually Scaleface it's the Lockheed AC-130H Spectre and Lockheed AC-130U Spooky not the An-225 cargo (That's Russian) plane. The Spectre and Spooky is the bastard child of the C-130 Hercules, Fairchild AC-119 and the AC-47 Gunship (Old Vietnam Gunship)...

I certainly hope so, otherwise I will be quite pissed off when I get it. Considering they have not remolded any of the S7 stuff, I wouldn't count on them removing it.

I'd really need to see bot mode pics to form an opinion on these guys. I already own Wingblade's mold and he's nice but I never picked up Jetstorm's.
:BOT:

I looked at pictures of the Lockheed AC-130s and I just don't see the resemblence. Wings are not swept back, the tail only has one fin. He's definitely not Jetfire (unless I'm not looking at the right jet of course, throw me a picture if you can find a good example).

The AC-225 has Jetfire's wing shape. It's not perfect, but it's the closest I've seen. See the attached picture.

Well aren’t I lucky, these were two molds I missed from the Cybertron line, I like the paint schemes too!

If this is true ill be picking up wingblade. When ever i was looking for him during cybertron i coldnt find him.

I think the realistic colors look great!

Can't wait to see what the robot modes look like. And Jetstorm's head looks like Soundwave so that's pretty slick.

Posted by Vectorshot on January 12th, 2008 @ 4:20pm CST
I truly hope that this truth. I did not get a chance to pick up the original of Wing Blades mold during Cybertrons run, and that paint job is nice. I will keep both eyes open for this one.

Jetstorm is a Decepticon?


Anyways I never did get him so I will pick him up

Dude, those are freaking sweet. Wal-Mart did the right thing and remolded those 4 Cybertron Deluxe Figs, and now Toys'r'us has also done a great thing and remolded these 2 Voyager Figs!

Ironic how there was a Cybertron Jetfire hoax inside of a Movie Line Box, and now in the end, Cybertron Jetfire will be inside of a Movie Line Box!

I'm happy with my originals thanks.

They have colour on them.

Excellent news! I haven't been able to find Wing Saber for a reasonable price and he was definitely the one figure from Cybertron that I said "I gotta get me one of those!"

I won't pick up both, though; they look similar enough in vehicle mode and I'm running out of shelf space as it is.

Yea I think these repaints look ok, but I agree they could use some more color or at least different grey camo scheme.

Not too bad looking for the ones that missed them the first time around. Not intrested myself but theres one more at least for someone elce to snag.

Jetfire to Jetstorm and Wingsaber to Wingblade. Am I the only one thinking that it isn't a coincidence that they still start with the same first syllable?
Re: RUMOR: TRU Exclusive Movie Jetstorm and Wingblade (602163)
Posted by Smokescreen85 on January 12th, 2008 @ 7:06pm CST
I like Jetstorm a lot and I don't already have the mold so I'll get him. But, I'm not very impressed with Wingblade, so I may pass on him.

wingblade rocks man :grin:

going to pick him up, but i'lll pass on jetstorm

Posted by DISCHARGE on January 12th, 2008 @ 8:58pm CST
Wow, I'm really surprised at all the people saying they will pass on
the Jetstorm. The Jetfire and Sky Shadow versions are selling for around 75 dollars on ebay these days and I love my Sky Shadow.
I can't wait to see the robot modes.

Now these are repaints I can live with. i definitely getting these two should they show up in my TRU. I wanted Jetfire of my own since I finished viewing TF Cybertron. I just might get Wing Saber too.
Hasbro may milking the Movie line with Cybertron repaints, but at least TF enthusiasts like me who skipped Cybertron can get the chance to have Jetfire and Wing Saber figs of their own. :grin:

that jetfire repaint looks ok. wingsaber's repaint sucks, but since i dont have the cybertron version, ill try to get him also.

Sweet repaints and tie-in to the movie! Will pick up! :APPLAUSE:

Posted by Valandar on January 12th, 2008 @ 10:25pm CST
I have Wingsaber, but not Jetfire. The paint scheme is pretty realistic for the alt mode, so I might go ahead and pick it up.

JETSORM'S HEAD REMINDS ME OF A decepticon that i know.......Jetstorm superior!!!! wingblade inferior!!!!

Actually Scaleface it's the [b:287iw1re]Lockheed AC-130H Spectre[/b:287iw1re] and [b:287iw1re]Lockheed AC-130U Spooky[/b:287iw1re] not the An-225 cargo (That's Russian) plane. The Spectre and Spooky is the bastard child of the C-130 Hercules, Fairchild AC-119 and the AC-47 Gunship (Old Vietnam Gunship)...
Its actually a C-5 Galaxy, the largest cargo plane in the world, just with a different tail section.

Posted by zemper on January 13th, 2008 @ 9:34am CST
meh, i'd take my Cybertron versions over these any day. colors are much better. plus you'd still need Cybertron OP to make that Wing Saber get it's money's worth (i'd be more interested in seeing how Sonic Wing mode looks like using this version of Wing Saber though). i wonder how will they price the Wing Saber, seeing as it's an Ultra, and there are no Ultra-class figures in TFTM.

original versions over repaints any day.

i pass big time, and my wallet thanks me gratefully for it.

:MAX:
