I like the Thundercracker repaint of FoC Starscream, but he should have been released as a FoC figure; he doesn't fit in with this group.

The Hoist remold/repaint is great! :APPLAUSE:

What the hell?! I know it seemed obvious, but had it even been confirmed that we were getting Thundercracker?

'Course he does. ;)

It is now! :D

We had seen the Clayton Crain artwork, and I believe at Toy Fair it was said that all the Spotlights would get their toy. But I'm not sure. :-?

Trailcutter actually has the forcefield face! :x

Thundercracker (and Hoist, to an extent) is the only new one here.

And he is FLIPPIN' GORGEOUS! =P~

So glad I picked up Fall of Cybertron Starscream. Thundercracker would look fantastic next to Starscream. I really hope Hasbro decides to pump out Skywarp in the near future to complete the set.

I keep saying these two things over and over:

1) As IDW repurposed FoC designs as G1 Cybertronian form, what we have here is G1 Cybertronian Thundercracker.
2) Nobody is stopping you from repurposing. ;)

That I agree with. I don't know what I would do with Orion and Bumblebee though...

I plan to pick up Orion, but not Bumblebee. Even though the mold looks boss, it would seem repetitive of me if I were to get this one, as I already have the original Classics toy. But mark my words, if there is to be a redeco/retool into someone else (Bugbite, perhaps?), then I would be happy to pick it up.

Loving Forcefield Face and his green repaint (greepaint?) and Megatron is pretty good. Shame he's not a Voyager. I like Orion's gun, but that's it for the rest of them. I shan't be pre-ordering the wave set of 4 just to get 2 of them.

WOW! This whole set is solid. Amazing repaints and retools. Bravo to Pax's weapon as well. Way to meet and exceed expectations. Classics is back strong... and the G2 retool of that stealth jet is going to be a home run as well. Better make a little room on the neo-G2 shelf.

Forcefield face is also for the win. That was a great comic.

FoC Thundercracker!!!!! Yes, I've been waiting for this guy. I've got Takara Starscream and Skywarp on my shelf already and they've been missing their blue buddy :).

All things considered, Orion Pax might make a good Ironhide/Ratchet/Kup in Cybertronian mold. I

Wouldn't it be awesome if we got one where you could alternate modes with the chest over the face — shifts from chest to blast shield like the old War Within appearance?

Gads, I lurved the War Within.

Wow, that Thundercracker fits the mold way better than Starscream does.
This entire set of toys are all great. Though I might skip on Bumblebee, considering how that mold looks awkward, and it would fit Trailbreaker better.

Bumblebee looks like Trailbreaker.... whaaaaa?

The logic in this is beyond me. :HEADHURTS:

Trailbreaker and Hoist are so want. Hope Hoist is really not an exclusive.

I'm fairly certain that Hoist not be an exclusive.

The Hoist looks great, but it looks like Hasbro can't decide on what Trailcutter's shield is going to look like. The shield Trailcutter is holding is a lot shorter than the one on the roof of his alt-mode.

Anyone know what color Dreadwing is going to be?

I hate how Trailcutter/Hoist has a HUGE barrel chest/upper body and a teeny tiny waist. It reminds me of FoC Jazz. I'll likely still snag Takara's versions of these bots, but I suspect I'll be displaying them in alt mode for the same reason I keep FoC Jazz and Sideswipe in their alt modes (the bot modes look kinda crappy).

I think some were confused by the fact that it was previewed first in the Collectors' Club magazine even though it was clearly advertised as a 'Generations' figure not an upcoming 'Exclusive' figure or anything.

It will be a retail release and there has been no indication from Hasbro or the Club up to this point to indicate otherwise.
