Seibertron.com is proud to present not one, not two not three but four new Generations galleries! The Deluxes are here to help you in your recreations of the events in Dark Cybertron, if so you wished: Waspinator, Skids, Dreadwing and Goldfire. The first two are entirely new molds, while the latter are retooling and repaints of previous Generations Deluxes Megatron and Bumblebee; we've also made sure to show them off next to previous incarnations of the characters! Click on any of the images below for the full galleries.

Great galleries as always, Seibertron! (Seriously, I think you could sell me the ugliest piece of plastic crud out there. Image )

I have to ask a question: did you have trouble with Skids falling over backwards? I don't know if I have him mis-transformed or something, but he seemed very back heavy. Some of your pics had him leaning quite a bit forward, but I didn't know if that was to get his guns all lined up or if you also had stability issues. With feet as big as Skids has, I'd think he would be more stable.

Thanks!

Many of them have been mis-assembled. Look at the figure's gray upper thigh pieces. If the left one has an "R" on it and the right one has an "L" on it, that's your problem. Luckily they pop right off so you can switch them without unscrewing anything or removing any pins. HOWEVER, even when they're assembled correctly, he's still a bit back-heavy due to his lack of "heels".

Play around with his legs some more; they have stiff joints and may bend more than you think. if you can get him into a sort of chicken-leg stance with his feet back as far as possible and his torso out over his toes, that helps.

He really just needs a piece of plastic to fold down on the backs of his feet; so many other figures have this I'm surprised they overlooked it on Skids.

Ah, I forgot Smokescreen was once a jet!

Thanks for the compliments about the galleries. I'm glad you are enjoying them, Agamemnon.

As for Skids, unfortunately he has stability issues. :(

Man I so want to finish G2 Dreadwing and Smokescreen's galleries. They're two of my favorite Transformers and are amongst the first Transformers to be poseable like action figures. One day ... maybe later this year.

I'm a big fan of those figures as well, and i'll be glad to see the gallery :D

On the Subject of skids stability, or lack of there for, have you tried pushing the lower leg behind the knee piece, for an example go to http://youtu.be/E1hAKCf3nZo?t=7m13s

Can't wait to get Waspinator! If only my Target actually had Generation Deluxes (and, incidentally, Legends) in stock...

Thanks to GuyIncognito and SW's SilverHammer. When I get back home I'll check out my Skids.

More props for getting poses that look great in the galleries, Seibertron. Too bad for the stability issues. I like Skids a lot otherwise...

Skids is much better if you have the leg transformation correct. It's not really meant to be a double knee joint. I've had no stability problems with my Skids after I lock in the bottom "knee" joint. its an awesome toy! =D

Courtesy to the big man himself, Seibertron.com is pleased to present our most recent gallery uploads, the much awaited Generations Legends-class Swerve and his partner Flanker, and Cosmos and his partner Payload!

The much-loved chatty bartender is a faithful reproduction in robot mode, while the vehicle mode is a truck with aesthetics resembling a truck from Earth, whereas Cosmos is a new design that reflects his original Generation One self, but with some IDW aesthetics thrown in the mix. Their pack-in partners, Flanker and Payload, are actually homages to Autobot Micromasters Sky High and Blast Master (who no longer forms the back end of a shuttle).

How can I get these, too? There aren't even preorders yet.

Despite being cool, I'm bummed by the micromaster homages. Are these really worth the several extra dollars? Or a better question, are these the best things to be included with Cosmos and Swerve?

I over paid for them on eBay ($68.98 shipped) so that I could bring all of you galleries in time for Toy Fair 2014 and to give me some breathing room with galleries so that I can work on some of the backlog next week (namely Go! and G1 Powermasters).

I bought Cosmos from http://www.ebay.com/itm/310852137789?ss ... 1439.l2649

and Swerve from http://www.ebay.com/itm/370992255160?ss ... 1439.l2649

They arrived very quickly. I bought them on February 5th and had them in had 6 days later on the 11th.

Thanks for putting galleries of these up for us! Swerve is great, but Cosmos is just stunning :x

My only qualm with these new Legends is that not all of them have head articulation. To the extent that Starscream and 'Bee can only look forward, the other articulation is awkward when trying to pose them dynamically.
