Pretty good for a heavy retool.

A relatively minor thing all things considered, but I guess someone missed the memo that Camians don't like to use guns.

Oh well, I'm sure we can count on Dr. Wu or Shapeways for a 3rd party halberd.

The gun is actually Arcee's gun from the G1 movie:



Or at least loosely inspired by it.

Thank god for that, I was looking at the photos thinking that this isn't what Hasbro showed us!

Good spot. Wonder why the Generations Arcee isn't using it?

Still, the point remains that Chromia has been shown most prominently as a melee combatant.

Loving the lightcycle alt-mode. :D Too bad about the completely clear canopy, it looked better when it was transparent smoke/grey. But otherwise, she looks great! This is how repaints should be done.

It might not have been doable on any of Arcee's plastic sprues. So they probably figured people would be getting both anyway, and so found a way to still give us the gun, even if it comes with someone else.

After all, DOTM Megatron's shotgun came with AOE Evasion Mode Optimus. ;)

Yeah, I'm sure that was deliberate when they made DOTM Megs. :P

I just find it funny that they gave her a gun and not a halberd, especially since Generations has been pretty good about giving the right weapons to the right people.

For Spark's sake, Skids comes with a Nudge Gun!

And I just pulled up this site to see if there were any in-hand images of Chromia.

As for her having a gun, didn't she have one in the G1 cartoon? Because I seem to remember her having one there.

I really wish the backpack came off to become her riot shield.

In further Hasbro Transformers Generations news today, we bring you another video review from Seibertron.com board member chuckdawg1999, this time talking us through a Legends figure: Gears and Targetmaster Eclipse! The little guy is a repaint of the Swerve mold, with new headsculpt, while the partner's a simple redeco of Flanker. Check out the embedded clip below!

[quote]One of the fun things with the Generation line is seeing how repaints/remolds can get turned around. Case it point, way back when Gears was the original figure while Swerve was the remold. 30 years later with Swerve being a more popular character we see Gears as a repaint of that Legends figure. Surprisingly the joints are a little bit tighter so take care moving them around, other than that this is a fine figure worthy of your collection.[/quote]

Eclipse is a repaint of Swerve partner, Flanker, not Payload. He is supposed to represent G1 Eagle Eye. No switching partners yet here like with Cliffjumper and Nemesis Prime.

Any time :PEACE:

Swerve and Gears are required purchases for me. I just hope I can find the latter when moving.

What number is Gears out of 30?

He's not part of the "list of 30 randomly picked exclusives and special releases". "Thrilling 30" refers to the line of the year as a whole.

Mmm-mm. Nope. That's the ugliest repaint I've seen in a long time. Swerve doesn't deserve this kind of atrocity for a legacy.

I think the head missing its red paint stripes and outside/top hurts the look. Makes him look like Brawn.

If those were applied and the area surrounding the head were simply blue, I think it would resemble the original character a lot more.

Saying this for customizers out there... and because I plan to paint mine this way.
