We've had a teaser, a promo shot - how about some official stock photography directly from Hasbro of the new Generations Combiner Wars deluxes Quickslinger (the new Slingshot name stand-in, reusing the Firefly mold with a new headsculpt, shared with Takara's take on the character) and Brake-Neck (Wildrider in a new guise, sharing the Dead End chassis)! You can check out the images mirrored below, and keep talking about this reveal in the Energon Pub - see you inside.

In all fairness, we also complained about their stupid hands.

In all fairness, there is as little about the Energon line we didn't complain about. Fatimus Prime, anyone?

Insulting people for their opinions? Yeah, that's real adult. :roll:

Doesn't look like anyone answered this one, which is a bit of a surprise. Maybe they didn't notice the question tucked away at the end of your post?

Anyway, unlike the other two replaced bots, Groove is still a part of Defensor. He is just now a Legends class figure:

Meanwhile, since you can't have a Legends class limb, there is a new guy, named Rook, who becomes a SWAT vehicle:

And poor Groove has been downgraded from limb to chest plate:

Since, even with the downgrade, Groove is still a part of the team, while still slightly bothered I can live with this option. Even if Takara pulls a Deluxe Groove out of their arses, I may still go Hasbro. I'll certainly go Hasbro for this one if Takara doesn't announce their intentions before Hasbro's becomes available for sale.

In more fairness, we also complained about their size.

ps. My gawd, Defensor looks like a beast.

I'm looking forward to getting Defensor.

Not so fussed with Slingshot/Wildrider with new names yet, but the completionist in me will probably compel me to pick them up

At the very least get Slingshot so you're not saddled with Alpha Tossbag.

Ok... spray-on tan looking face with what appears to be a short, beach ready hair cut and permanently pissed-off, stick-up-his-ass expression: He looks like a Jesrsey Shore cast member, ergo a douchebag! Yep, I'd say they nailed slingshot perfectly with this figure. :lol:

as a toy, Alpha Bravo is actually my favourite Wave 1 figure, so that's not a problem for me.

I see it, alt-mode close enough to the move version, though I'd prefer a paint job similar to the animated/ROTF design....

Then Lockdown could finally be part of something

I think someone needs to the point out the psychological reasons for the denial of facts that shouldn't mean anything to adults in the first place.

Who wants representations of two robots who were reduced to quivering piles of slag?

Brake Neck, Wildrider, whoop dee doo.......who cares? The only people who are picking these two up are the people who cried rivers of tears when they found out that they had been replaced due to death in G3 fiction. Crushing their dreams of shoehorning these next generation figures into their "geewun classics" collection, right next to their HFTD Seaspray and FOC Shockwave.

Not me. I prefer Alpha Bravo to Slingshot, but I'll still get him.




Burn, if you want to put me on the list like that other guy, then you'll have to go through my army of Alpha Bravos first!!!!!!!!! [-(

What is this "G3?" The Generations line certainly isn't it.

alpha bravo, offroad, and rook are all amazing. alpha bravo is the best copter tf. looks better than blades too. offroad reminds me of vehicle voltron and looks better than wildrider. rook reminds me of g1 ratchet. you'd have to be really uptight to not enjoy these great figures. your loss.

Am I the only one who would have preffered "brake-neck" to be based off of Brakedown instead of Dead End? Also, while alpha bravo looked fine all along, it seems he had the "quicksilver" colors all along.
