From the pre-order pages, we get to see clearer images of Frenzy & Rumble, Wheeljack as well as Grapple.

As it should be :)

Actually I quite like it unpainted as it looks there. I wasn't that keen on these before but that pic just appeals to me for some reason. Maybe I'll get one and paint it up in dark and gritty colors.

Frenzy/Rumble look top heavy but the head mold/paint job and pile drivers look class, I wonder if they'll be regular deluxes or a bit smaller like Bumblebee/Cliffjumper were.

Wheeljack just gets better and better with every pic, as does Grapple!

I'll say it again, Wheeljack fans this is a great looking figure already - if you're not happy with it then you'll never be happy with anything, :-B this is a great looking figure - looks like Hasbro has done it again in the Generations line. :BOT:

I really want to see him painted.

Well, Wheeljack looks about as good as Wheeljack can I suppose. I don't really like the figure but it's mainly due to flaws in Wheeljack's character design more than anything. The chest and legs just look so basic and don't really convince me that it's a humanoid form rather than just really obvious car bits. Couple of other G1 characters suffer from the same issue in their designs and while it seemed more forgivable back then with the relative simplicity of toy technology I think I've just been so spoilt with a lot of the Movie stuff that most G1 characters just look far too basic, blocky and unconvincing to me now.

Grapple too bugs me cos I think this figure looks absolute crap just like Inferno did. They look like very overweight twins whereas their original G1 figures were at least far better proportioned.

Grapple's colour still doesn't look quite right, but it's definately better than his RTS version.

i REALLY like the fact that they made those head dealies on wheeljack clear! thats such a nice touch :D kinda makes me wonder if they'll be blue or just clear on the real thing, but i'll be happy either way :lol:

Not completely sold on Rumble/Frenzy yet. I agree with the theory that they will be the same mold and that they don't combine. But, I think colored high-quality pictures will do this mold a lot of justice and/or injustice.

As far as Wheeljack goes, even the unpainted prototype is sexy.

Nice to see some clear pictures of WJ & Frenzy/Rumble. I don't see how they'd combine in any way, maybe they don't, but that's okay with me. Really nice sculpts on them, can't wait to see color pics.

Well of course I want them all

I wish they had made a toon about these figures instead of having a brand new one with newer molds

Wow, pictures you can see, it's some kinda miracle.

Looks like Grapple is borrowing Hightower's weapon.

The cartoon was what sold TFs. Without it TF would be nothing like it is today, so Rumble should be blue this time around. Even better, they should put Rumble and Frenzy in the animated series and just keep the names reversed from the toys from now on. Kinda like GIJoe's backwards thumb.

And if they wanna homage the cartoon, all the fans must do is repurpose them as the other. ;)

Knew it was just a matter of time befoer we got clearer pictures. The pile driver "mode" is pushing it a bit but the figure does look good. Wheeljacks not to bad, would like a little more remolding but theres enough to make me buy it plus its Wheeljack. Cant wait to see what they look like painted. I have to say generations has to be the best figure line ever, you can have characters from any series and they always look awesome. My only gripe is that there isnt enough WFC figures.

Yeah, there can never be enough WFC toys imo. All these guys looks fantastic. I especially love Rumble/Frenzy. I wonder if Hasbro will also release them as a 2 pack (I hope so). I only pray that when BBTS gets the preorders for the Hasbro versions I will be lucky enough to snag them :PRAY:

I love the updated Scourge alt mode. The red claws and beard is a great bonus. What's going on with his gun? Is that a Targetmaster?

I like Frenzy and Rumble. The tanks are a pretty cool design. The alt mode looks a little top heavy.

Wheeljack is fabs.

I was hoping for a little more with Grappel paint job. Looks pretty similar to Hasbro's version.

Lots of bulk to F/R-not sure if I'm liking that. I'll still wait to see them in color before making a final decision though. Wheeljack is a no brainer though. I like this use of the mold a lot more than Tracks.

Rumble and Frenzy are the clear losers in this gang of new characters.

Where did those designs go wrong?

Dammit Hasbro. Rumble being the red one? And Frenzy the blue one? Personally, I just think they both look better by the FIRRIB concept #-o
