Thanks to site sponsor BigBadToyStore.com, we have received the official Hasbro images for the upcoming Reveal the Shield Voyager class figures Solar Storm Grapple, Lugnut, and Strafe.

Although the images are heavily photoshopped, Grapple appears much more orange than earlier prototypes suggested. Additionally, this appears to be the first time we've seen Lugnut correctly transformed. Finally, Strafe is an Autobot repaint of the NEST Global Alliance Mindwipe mold, homaging G1 Technobot Strafe.

Lugnut looks amazing! They all do in fact, but I'm more excited for Lugnut more than anything.

Here's hoping that Grapple is closer to these colors than that bright yellow previously seen. Lugnut looks very menacing, excellent update. Strafe is my least favorite of these three. He looks ok, but I prefer mindwipe.

Same here! He was too small for a voyager. It really impresses me how they revamp original Animated characters into the Reveal the Shield/Generations line. I wonder if they'll do a Bulkhead or a Slipstream sometime in the near future. I'd be interested to see what Hasbro does with those characters.

Wow, those are some nice figures. Grapple is looking quite good, and it's nice to see that he got quite a bit remolded from Inferno. Strafe also looks cool and would be quite nice with Sunspot, but since I already have Mindwipe and Skystalker I won't be getting him.
And finally Lugnut. WOW! Lugnut looks like one nice figure. I don't think this one is going to be a shelfwarmer like his Animated counterpart. It also looks like his colours are a mix of his original ones and his Atomic Lugnut repaint, which looks really good together. Very impressive design overall.

GLORIOUS!!! Not only did Lugnut get to follow his glorious Master to other glorious continuities (vague enough to fit into both Generations and Movie), he also gains glorious articulation for his fingers and neck.
There looks to be a button on his alt mode's tail. Wonder what it does.
How'd they convince Lugnut to hide his 'badge' I'll never know. I'd expect him to be the one with an oversized insignia painted on him, not Strafe.


Grappel is far too blocky for my tastes and Strafe is far too Decepticony to be an Autobot. So I'll only be buying (the glorious) Lugnut.

Grapple is so mine when he comes out. I wish that they woud re-release Inferno with a ladder. All I am in interested in now is classic style figs and WFC. I hope they make some more classics in the voyager scale

There's always the Gears of War set that provides Inferno with a Ladder. I have it and it works great.

My reaction to seeing news of RTS Strafe:

It Is Him... five seconds ago wrote:Oh my god, they're remaking Strafe!? *scrolls down, sees Mindwipe repaint* Ah man. Damn it.

Lugnut is unadulterated sexiness

Initial photos had Lugnut looking awful, but now he is a must have!

Still would have kinda preferred Slipstream as an Animated to Classics crossover though. :-?

The sigils on Strafes' wings are neat, but I don't want two of the mold.

Seeing Lugnut makes me glad I didn't buy the Animated version when I was tempted.

The orange on Grapple looks better. And I second the desire for an Inferno w/ ladder.

From the looks of it I would say that it's a push button release so his tail section folds down his back in robot mode. But I could be wrong.

Not fussed on Strafe (which is a shame because he was one of my favourites as a kid) and the completely yellow crane section of Grapple's needs to be broken up a bit (in my opinion).

BAHAHAHAAA!!! Anyone else notice the big, dumb face in Grapple's stomach?? :P

Seems like Grapple's been hanging out in Venusville with the poor radiation shielding and Kuato's now taken up residence...

Do not be deceived by what appears to be the proper orange on Grapple. All the official pics of Terradive led me to believe he was a beautiful bronze color, only to see him as bright Sunkist orange in person. I honestly think he will be exactly as the first images were, and that the Transformers: United version will hit the mark, and the wallet. :sad:

Grappel...first thing I thought of was Energon Roadblock. Anyone else get that?

Gimme Lugnutz now or I will do severe bodily harm to you.

Strafe is...well...a repaint. meh.

Grapple looks WONDERFUL but I really dislike Lugnut in those "Atomic Lugnut" style colours, well, at least they are more that than original Lugnut. If they re-release him in his "normal" colours I would get him as the mold looks decent. Actually, better than decent. Awesome.
