Transformers Colombia, a Facebook fan page, has provided the first official in and out of package images of the upcoming Generations Voyagers Roadbuster and Sky-Byte, plus Legends Class Acid Storm with Venin and Gears with Eclipse, courtesy of group member Felipe León Nájera.

Roadbuster has been desired since G1, especially a complete one due to some of his very small accessories being an absolute pain to keep or obtain, so this is big news for a lot of people. He's a nice G1 update figure that's been in high demand and now, our wait is just about over.

Sky-Byte is a fan favorite due to his characterization in 2001's Transformers Robots In Disguise television show, based off of Takara's Car Robots that had aired in 2000. Sky-Byte was originally a redeco of Transmetal 2 Cybershark, but this time he's getting his own brand new mold!

Gears is another fan favorite, but this time, this little guy is scaled to work with Titan Class Metroplex, and is a redeco of the previously released Swerve. (You can see the galleries of Metroplex and Swerve by clicking on their names.)

Acid Storm is a redeco of Starscream, based on a random background character used in one episode of the original Generation 1 TV show. (You can see the Starscream gallery here.)

We've mirrored the images below:

Sky-Byte's shark mode, sigh.
Why can't it be straight, not curved?
Always jumping, blah.

That would be nice, yes.
But this shows him in motion,
Something unique, no?

Man, Roadbuster looks so good, ESPECIALLY from the feet up. As long as he's in the back of my shelf, those clown shoes will remain hidden... FOREVER!!!!!!!!! :KREMZEEK:

So am I the only one who thinks a little silver or white to the shark eyes will let them pop? Plus, it's accurate to how he appeared in the cartoon.

This was seriously the best image I could find. :oops:

A posable tail!
I did not think of that one.
Yes that would be cool!

But, could it be done
In a feasible manner
With the robot mode? :-?

With a different robot head sculpt and and making the shark body more organic than robotic. I can see Sky-bite being repainted as the original beast wars Cybershark (one of my favorite beast wars characters). And even if the shark head doesnt get remolded into that of hammerhead, I still would like it. Since one of my problems with the original BW Cybershark was that the shark mode look to bulky for a hammerhead, but for a Great White I think it will look really nice! I would totally be sold on that!! :DANCE:

If they wre gonna redeco him into Cybershark, it'd be a completely wasted opportunity not to make him into Transmetal 2 Cybershark.

You are totally right!! I was but that would be... how do I say it... Like it would be to easy you know, just a repaint. And dont get me wrong this looks Awesome already, and I would totally buy both. But I think doing some remolding here and there (especially to the original BW) would make the 2 characters look totally different rather than just a repaint. But thats just me haha

First of all, why is Acid Storm's partner called Venin? I thought his name was going to be Bugly. :???: Also I believe that Hasbro has put a lot of money in other toy brands including Transformers (specifically the Prime and Generations line). When they realize that they have little money, Hasbro would make cheap, simplified toys when children claim that "the Transformers toys are too hard." :roll: So once Hasbro is comfortable with the money that they made, they'll make as many toys for the new Transformers cartoon (coming out in 2015) as they can. Simplified or not. :SMUG: :CON:

Don't know where you got that from as he's been "Venin" ever since Toy Fair way back in February.
