Still waiting for Shrapnel here... all these Swerves, Optimuses, and Bees aren't moving.



Gears looks weird, like his head's too small or too low. The package art not even remotely resembling the actual figure doesn't help.

I kinda want that Venin (Bugly!) but I don't have a need for an acid green jet. Why does it seem like I only ever want half of the figures in these things? Partner the little bugs with the big ones, Hasbro!

Anyone else think Gears' head looks like a hybrid between Gears and Brawn? I really hope Hasbro doesn't cheap out and use this head for Brawn.

The only things that really bother me about these mold is that neither has head/neck articulation. It makes it so much harder to make them look dynamic what they have stationary noggins.

Oh well. I'm still gonna get them. I've been really digging the new Legends figures, and I aint stoppin' now!

I think Venin is actually supposed to be G1 Venom. From what I heard, a last minute change from Thundercracker to Acid Storm forced a different color scheme on Venin as well.

sadly, i can easily see them doing this. make him green and yellow and hed be more brawn than he is gears right now.

The one time they get acid storms color right, they use a silly kiddie mold. So glad CHMS knocked it out the park years ago.

It's the lack of red paint on Gears' head. The head was sculpted to have the little red grooves that the package art has, but they were left unpainted in silver, making them barely noticeable and rendering Gears' head as looking less like Gears' head and more like Brawn's head.

Speaking of which,

I have this nagging feeling in the back of my mind that I can't recall for 100% certainty, but it's telling me that I think I vaguely remember hearing about some plan of Hasbro's to redeco this Gears as Brawn using that head.

But, I also have this other nagging feeling that's telling me that I also vaguely remember hearing that said plans for Brawn didn't pan out.

I wish I could remember one or the other, or both, to be sure on either.

That's indeed the case, to offset the amount of blue already in the line. Thundercracker will still be released next year, albeit without a partner.

And Acid Storm oddly appeals to me in this form. :-?

I'm going to see what paint takara puts on Gear's head.

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 the 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!
