Yeah finally we got Roadbuster worthy of the name and Leader Jetfire looks amazing, if I could say so and the same for Skybyte, can't wait to get these. :D

Finally! The not horribly simplified AoE toys! I wonder how they achieved Crosshairs' coat's "flapping in the wind" look.

Sorry about the image order, they got messed up in uploading. :(

Wow that evasion mode prime had so much potential, alt mode kills....bot mode :SICK:
hmmmm....maybe we can get an idw retool out of it.

Those Deluxes look great! First-gen F-body TF FTW!!

And Evasion Mode Optimus? Cool! Sounds like a plot device.

Didn't see a name for the Argosy truck, was there one? Actually, I think I put it together with the description in the first post. Great work guys, keep it up.

Now, THOSE AOE figures don't look bad at all.

Holy crap! All that worrying and panic button pushing for nothing. On first glance, these figures actually look rather decent, cool even. I just hope that they managed to pull those off without much transformation cheating.

Ingenious how they used the curves of the car's hood for Crosshair's coattails. Drift looks great, if a little too bulky. Can't wait to see the robot mode on that leader Grimlock.

So, are these the ones that are coming out in under the Generations line? If not, will there be another set of figures that will be even more complex/collector-oriented than these ones?

Wow! That Roadbuster looks fantastic!

Amongst all the awesome Generations reveals, I'm super disappointed at that Mr. Potato Head Grimlock. The first pictures we were shown had him with blue G1 style eyes. This prototype shows him with derp eyes. I was so excited, but if Grimlock has those derp eyes on the production version, there's no situation in which I'd buy it.
Also, these collector versions of the AOE deluxe toys. They look like a substantial size, and I would anticipate them being expensive for that reason. Don't be surprised if their price approaches $20

The Age of Extinction line has the simpler stuff and the Generations stuff. The latter is the more complex, collector geared line. :D

What we see here, other than the ones that look like shellformers and FABs, are the Movie Generations.

Who said Jhiaxus was a new mold and thus those images in the Japanese listing were fake:



Armada Starscream Retool. But where's Nightbeat?

Everything look great, especially our fan favourite Sky-Byte. Hey, I wonder if his bio will be written in a haiku like they said they would for Universe :lol:

That would be Galvatron, yeah! Which also visually confirms the slicing bot from the trailer.

That would be Hasbro. Hrrm. Unless Ryan got his fingers and eyes tangled with the presentation!

And yeah, that does not look like Nightbeat. :-?

That grey car would be Crosscut. I don't see the light blue Nightbeat made from either Jazz or Bumblebee anywhere though. Maybe they didn't have a sample ready?
