Guys, he had very obvious wheels. I would have been more surprised if he didnt triple change.

That does look good, I would have expected a flat plate. I wonder if it's thick enough to stop half way through and be faction-less. Talk about cartoon accuracy ;)^

And didn't both alt modes get shown off days ago? Nope, I was imagining things, just helicoptor mode. Still seemed pretty obviously a triple changer.

Not sure if it's been pointed out, but Impactor and Mirage (and other new stuff) are up for pre-order on Hasbro Pulse, for $20. Dangit, why can't they continue the half price trend?

I was pretty critical of impactors face initially but it looks much better in hand. I'm fully on board now. Also omegas face is GORGEOUS!!

I don't care what anyone says, but Impactor looks dope. Omega looks great, glad the face turned out better than the early renders would have had me believe.

And the seekers still just look like this to me.

Will be funny if Astrotrain is a downscaled version of one of the third party MP offerings that used a part as a base thing, can't remeber which one it was but it wouldnt be the first time hasbro has copied 3rd partty stuff.

Springers car mode looks a bit off but still buying anyways.

Aside from housing the wings? My bet is it can house Micromasters as a secondary cockpit.

Looks like hinged trap doors to me. Something tucks into there and it doesn't seem to be any of the transformation bits either.

EDIT: well maybe the head tucks in?

That's my best guess, it's likely spring loaded to close the hole instead of leaving a big empty space behind his head. Aside from that the only other thing his backpack does for sure is collapse on itself in bot mode. He could still hold a Micromaster since the part with the door is far forward of the cockpit.

Looks like springs to me as well. But if you shove a micromaster in there, will you be able to get it out? Could be like a finger trap?

I like Jetfire. I like Omega Supreme. Kind of on the fence with the others. I don't think much of the way the seekers have their legs folded under them in alt mode. I guess it's no worse than we've seen with other jets (cough cough cough TR Starscream).

Cool stuff there. I had speculated those hand peg holes would fold away, but not as clever as that. If they designed it for a TM to ride in him, I wonder if those guys are making a comeback?

I also wonder how long it took him to so naturally say "convert" instead of "transform". I'd bone that up every time.

Springer always had a lame triple-changing gimmick, so this is both toon and toy-accurate. As for Impactor he looks a lot better as an actual figure and not some 3D render.
