What's that you say? You like the in-package images, but you would rather see them freed from their plastic prisons? We can oblige! Well, we can for two of the four, but luckily it's the two new molds from the series, Waspinator and Skids! b8921061 of the HK-TF boards has posted the first in-hand images of the eagerly awaited duo. Enjoy the images mirrored below. Waspinator and Skids along with Goldfire and Dreadwing make up the next series of Transformers Generations Deluxes, which will hopefully be showing up at retails sooner than later.

Want to see more of Takara Waspinator before I decide which to get.

The amount of firepower Skids brings is insane for a Deluxe Autobot. Both he and Waspinator are looking very sharp.

Still concerned about Skid's apparently limited shoulders. Need to see more before deciding.

Waspinator's thorax is a mess, but his robot mode is simply divine.

Is Goldfire supposed to kinda look like Movie Bumblebee? The face, I mean.

It's based on G1 Goldbug's head:



And by the by, it's based on the original head design of the G1 Bumblebee toy:

Well, that didn't take very long.

I'm still sold on these and the others.

These are the only 2 hasbro figures i've wanted since Springer & Blitz i like the hasbro waspinator colours myself and i'll wait to see what takara do with skids.

Those shoulders are worrisome, but I'll still get Skids. I like how his feet have the actual car wheels on the bottom and not fake ones like Hasbro has been known to do lately.

Waspinator is a pass only because I don't collect BW characters. He looks pretty good though.

Why did the photographer rip off the legs of Skids and take a pic of that?
Why didn't he do the same to Waspinator, the bot that gets blown the f**k up in almost every episode he's in?

Waspinator is awesome!

I took the liberty of translating the caption, and guess what: he claims Skids has missassembled hip joints.

Skids looks amazing, tho he suffers from Jazz and Wheelie clown shoe syndrome. Waspinator looks fanfreakingtastic! Only complaint my ONE complaint, they couldn't have found a way for the insect legs to fold up behind his back instead of hanging off his fore arms? Ah well, still will be getting these two. :grin:

Wheeljack wasn't a particularly tall deluxe and Skids looks smaller in both modes. I don't like his legs hollowness either... and those shoulders worry me, too. I SO wanted to like him, but I'm less confident about this figure every time new pics show up...

if you look close at the first laying down pic of skids and the second one (with the legs pulled off) you can see that he's probably reversed the hip pieces... in the first one the slot on the side is much farther back than on the second one - I think whoever did it swapped the left for the right.

Few things: first, I really like this Skids fig...but, he's got some dorky clown shoes. Man are those some big-honking feet! Second does he have swivel wrists? I certainly hope so. I hate it when they leave that feature out of deluxes and up.

Thirdly, I'm not crazy about Waspy's beast mode; I wish it kinda fit together more snugly. But his robot mode is looking sweet!

Skids could certainly be better. Definitely seems to have poor shoulder articulation, and the inside of his legs are a bit of an eyesore.

Waspinator is pure perfect. Both will be bought in some form or Takara.

I like these. However it's aggravating to me how the Voyager figures in this line are really good but the Deluxe class seems kind of cheap. And while they are better, the quality seems close to the relatively poor FOC Deluxe waves(Except for Starscream and Kickback).

Do we still have to wait until January for these because I need Skids now. He's the last of the Classicverse Autobot cars.

Waspinator looks sweet too.
