Late on Friday afternoon, Hasbro shared new official images of six figures from the highly anticipated Generations COMBINER WARS, which should start hitting online and brick-and-mortar retailers starting in December. This set of images includes robot mode, vehicle mode, and in-package images of the following figures: Optimus Prime, Silverbolt, Firefly, Skydive, Alpha Bravo and Dragstrip. This is the first time that we've seen in-package images of the Deluxe Class figures. While the packaging of the Voyagers sport a sharp looking black and red color scheme, the Deluxe Class figures each sport a very nice piece of artwork. Check out the images below or click on any of the images to view a larger version. Enjoy!

Special thanks to Twitter user yak_face for the heads up!

Well I absolutely love all of the aerialbots, especially skydive, I think that figure would make an amazing Machine Wars Megatron/Megaplex. However, I'm not to keen on Dragstrip. I don't know, I think (?) i'd like it better if Dragstrip were a chick, like the stunticon job boxset. I know it goes against the IDW canon, but still It'd be cool, I want more fembots.

Stupid Question but I would have to wait until wave two to complete one team? I understand why they're doing waves like this but as a reviewer it's kinda annoying.

Wave one there are three Aerialbot limbs, one stunticon limb, and two torsos (Prime and Silverbolt). There's also powerglide, but he's there for accessories. So technically wave one has 5 of 6 arielbots so either way your still missing a limb.

Due too that, it can be safe to assume wave 2 will play out as the Final Aerialbot limb, 3 Stunticon Limbs, 1(?) Torso that being Motor Master, and at least Blackjack or Acer, or whatever their legends class car buddy's named for the legends assortment for wave 2.

I get why they do it, but just a tiny bit of paint could have made the combiner pegs on these deluxes far less obvious. It just looks bad on dragstrip. Also skydive is mistransformed in jet mode the wings move further back.

You could make a little cloth skirt for him.
Change his nsme to Dragqueen.
:lol:
He's kind of curvy though.

Looks like Silverbolt is mistransformed

I originally thought Alpha Bravo would be a redecoed Rotorstorm limb for Bruticus. Looking at this official pic, I can easily see a simple retool into Blastoff as well.
Who will everyone else be?

I want all of these, but I also want all of that rumored Titan Class Devastator made of six Voyager Class Constructicons. I need a new job or a second job asap!

The deluxe figures look way too plain (no pun intended), they could use some more paint and a more refined transformation. It also looks like their articulation is dreadful.

The biggest gripe i have is that there is a helicopter in the Aerialbot team, no just no Hasbro.

Go back a few pages in the thread.
It'll be fun.

Would hate to give you a true combiner in the first wave.

It's called diversity, folks. Instead of four different color planes on the pegs, they have two planes, a helicopter, and an F1 racecar. This looks much better to everyone who isn't familiar with the G1 combiners, which is pretty much everybody in the child target audience and many of their parents. We'll probably get the final "correct" Aerialbot a few waves down the road, or as an exclusive of some sort. Also, retool/redeco potential is important. A helicopter mold can be reused for both Bruticus and Defensor, so by changing one Aerialbot's alt mode they just took care of one limb from three separate combiners. That's a good return on an investment if I ever heard one.

These are looking good so far :) the packaging looks better as well, amazing what a change of colour can do. To join in what others have said I can see a Vortex out of that. As to why there's no slingshot, he's dead in the comics and it seems as though hasbro are sticking close to the fiction in the comics.

Yeah!

Getting all of these, look so awesome. Need more space here.

What's that rumour about constructicons? Trolling?

Also, how many kids could raise $85-100 to complete an entire gestalt in the time that the first wave will be on the shelf? I mean, I'd be ticked if I was scrounging from a meager allowance and lemonade sales or something, and I managed to get three of the jets, only to have them all disappear off the shelves, displaced by a set of cars, before I could get the remaining two.

Honestly, if it'd been up to me, I might have downplayed the actual set team thing, and played up the Scramble City aspect, picked 4 gestalts to do, and then released one component for each gestalt with each wave. Assuming I were willing to shuffle a few alternate modes, and characters, I'd probably plan it like:
[size=85]
First Quarter

Voyager
Optimus Prime (Autobot SemiTruck)
Aerialbot Silverbolt (Autobot Jet)

Deluxe
Aerialbot Fireflight (Autobot Jet)
Stunticon Dragstrip (Decepticon Car)
Protectobot Blades (Autobot Helicopter)
Combaticon Brawl (Decepticon Tank)

Legion
Stunticon Blackjack (Decepticon Car)

Second Quarter

Voyager
Aerialbot Silverbolt (Autobot Jet)
Stunticon Motormaster (Decepticon SemiTruck)

Deluxe
Aerialbot Alpha Bravo (Autobot Helicopter)
Stunticon Breakdown (Decepticon Truck)
Protectobot Streetwise (Autobot Car)
Combaticon Blastoff (Decepticon 'Jet')

Legion
Protectobot Groove (Autobot Motorcycle)

Third Quarter

Voyager
Stunticon Motormaster (Decepticon Semi-Truck)
Protectobot Hotspot (Autobot Firetruck)

Deluxe
Aerialbot Skydive (Autobot Jet)
Stunticon Deadend (Decepticon Car)
Protectobot First-Aid (Autobot Truck)
Combaticon Vortex (Decepticon Helicopter)

Legion
Combaticon Swindle (Decepticon Truck)

Fourth Quarter

Voyager
Protectobot Hotspot (Autobot Truck)
Combaticon Onslaught (Decepticon Truck)

Deluxe
Aerialbot Air-Raid (Autobot Jet)
Stunticon Wild-Rider (Decepticon Car)
Protectobot ???
Combaticon ???

Legion
Aerialbot Powerglide

[/size]
Buyers could complete a hybrid gestalt with the first wave, a full Decepticon or Autobot gestalt by the second wave, and a named gestalt by the end of the year. That'd keep the shelves diverse all the way through the year with at least three characters from each faction, and at least 4 different alternate modes out there. It would also keep customers coming back with each wave.

Why put those two limbs in bold in the "Accessories Class"? There's no reason to. :?
