It's that time again... New Galleries on Seibertron.com!

Our newest gallery roundup consists of the newest wave of Generations Deluxes, which is wave wave 4. The makeup of this assortment is 2x of Crosscut, Jhiaxus, Nightbeat and last, but certainly not least...Windblade!

Crosscut is a redeco and slight remold of the IDW Generations Skids mold from 2013, making this the second reuse of the mold and the first of those remolds to not be tied to movieverse. (You can see Skids gallery here, and info on Rollbar, here.)

Jhiaxus is not only a redeco of an existing mold, but a rather substantial remolding of it, too. (The origin mold, Generations Armada Starscream, can be seen here.) Jhiaxus first made his appearance as a Decepticon villain in Marvel's 1993 comic tie in, Transformers G2. The shortlived run lasted just about a year, but in that short period of time and since then, fans have been wanting a legit Jhiaxus figure and this guy is it.

Nightbeat's another classic character and while this newest version sadly doesn't feature the G1 original's Headmaster gimmick, it does retain that cool flame deco! Nightbeat is a redeco and remold of the IDW Generations Bumblebee/Goldbug (Goldfire) figure mold from 2013. You may note that his comic uses the RTS Jazz design, while the toy does not. (A point of contention for some fans.)

And finally, Windblade. This figure was made for the fans, by the fans! After a poll with various questions, Hasbro was given the criteria the fans demanded out of a figure and it had to be female and she had to be a jet. Hasbro listened and delivered, and Windblade is one of their most unique creations in recent history. From her striking Japanese inspired Kabuiki-esque look, to her curves and sharp edges. Speaking of sharp edges, she touts a killer sword that's just awesome to behold.

Speaking of Windblade, that's where we'll start. Click on any of the images, below, to be taken to that figure's full gallery:

Great galleries as usual. I don't get all the hate for Windblade, I don't really care for the head, too weird looking, I might paint over her facial makeup.

Also, has anybody tried supergluing her heels? I've watched the reviews, they wouldn't look to awful permanently fixed in vehicle mode.

Windblade isn't that bad, I don't like her enough to buy though. If it was the Sarah Stone version of Windblade in figure form that would be a different story. Love Nightbeat though I changed his weapon first thing.

i don't get why they chose the bumble bee mold for night beat when they first showed us the jazz mold even the art work shows that :-?

Why is it that I see Kang from the marvel universe in Jhiaxus? :-? There heads seem very similar. The most resemblance I see is on the comic.

my opinion of nightbeat is a mixed bag. the original mold choice (RTS jazz) is vastly superior, but not for the character. the IDW bee mold suits the character much more. though that bee mold left me really disappointed.

i wont be skipping any figures from this assortment. they all look great!

Seeing Windblade now...

The whole Chinese Geisha look and feel with the face paint is amazing. With AOE having a whole spin of that culture it definitely ties in very nicely. Detailing alone is enough for me... Considering Hasbro's history of missing the fine details... This is probably one of my new favorites...

Hasbro Toy Shop also now has her back available for pre-order / order now. 20% coupon helps!

It's actually Japanese Kabuki theater themed. Far different. :-B

Oh yeah, totally, I'm not arguing with you, just pointing out a fact ;)

I really am excited to get her, hoping a bit of superglue will fix her heels.

Ever tried the Pledge "FloorCare"? I have a bottle about to try on some my ROTF Bruticus and Superion. Other than the shiny parts seems less lethal...

Tried it on ball joints before, multiple coats, but it never really worked (My technique is to use electrical tape). I don't think making the heels permanently extended will make her jet mode too horrible looking.

What about just adding a layer of clear coat to the detachable heel pieces to make it firmer to move those parts?

I just opened up my Gears with "Eclipse" and Acid Storm with "Venin" packs. I'm happy with this printing of the "Flanker" mold. The nosecone and peg handle fold back properly in robot mode on my Eclipse so that he can stand flat footed. My Flanker figure is always tipping forward.
Venin is a rubbery mess! Almost all of the plastic is soft to the point of being rubber. It's like he's half decoy or something.

Even the smallest of Transformers can't escape the galleries of Seibertron.com. These newest subjects include Generations Legends Class Nemesis Prime with Spinister and Cliffjumper with Supressor. They are redecos of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee from the same line only with switched Target Master partners.

Speaking of their Target Master partners, let's take a look at them. Spinister is a redeco of Blazemaster getting his name and deco from G1 Spinister while Supressor is a redeco of Roller. Click on any of the images to see the full galleries.

I wonder how many people gave the rifle that came with Cliffjumper to Nemesis Prime. I'm on the fence myself whether to do it or not.

Nope, I gave it and Spinister to TFSS Scourge and stuffed Nemi into storage. ;)
