Well, he hasn't even been officially revealed, but yet, we have a treat for you today. Thanks to an Ebay auction, two Seibertronians have gotten their hands on the upcoming Generations Selects GS-11 Exhaust figure! Regular reviewer Chuckdawg1999 is up first, with a video review that shows off the figure nicely, and has some good comparison shots with Exhaust's perennial mold-mate, Wheeljack.



The other Seibertronian to get this figure was yours truly. Delivered just yesterday, my Exhaust came packed in the traditional cardboard box that all Selects releases come in. I've included several pictures showing off his deco and compared to Wheeljack, he Exhaust comes off looking a little.... spare. He's got a nice bright white plastic, compared to Wheeljack's off-white, with red being his other major color. But besides that, he has far fewer tampographs. Given the legal issues surrounding the release of Masterpiece Exhaust five years ago, it's understandable that Hasbro would want to avoid hewing to closely to that deco.

There are three tampographs that are of particular interest. These appear on his spoiler and on his legs/car mode sides. His name is spelled out, or rather misspelled as "Exhuast".

Given that this figure hasn't been officially announced, it's possible that this mistake might be corrected before then. Also, above, in the second photo, you can see Japanese katakana on his leg. As I can't read Japanese, perhaps someone with more knowledge than me can translate?

And last, but not least, a size comparison shot with a large Siege Deluxe, Ratchet, and Exhaust's fellow Selects figure, Lancer.

I know they couldn't reproduce Marlboro's logo on the front side of the car - both for trademark and "smoking-brand-on-a-toy" issues - yet I was hoping for a bit more "triangular" red, just like the Masterpiece.

In robot mode, I think he ends up looking a little less spare than Wheeljack.
I really hope they change the glazing to blue for the official release.

This came to me in an official Selects box. I think this is likely the final deco, spelling mistakes and all. I agree with you though. Blue windows would have gone a long way to making this figure great.

Why (or how) did you get him?

Haha. And here I thought it was magic. And, I guess it was.

To be fair, I just saw an opportunity to use a sorta qoute from the 2007 movie :lol: In all seriousness though we did report when they first appeared that it was an auction on eBay for this and Greasepit

Nothing special: de-i-se-pu-te-i-ko-n, or Decepticon :P

Interesting in that it's literally "Decepticon" and not "Destron," as one might think they'd put on there. But I'm definitely getting this guy, and definitely replacing the robot wings with something bigger, and bluer (unless, as many have suggested, they add some blue to him).

I bet it's Hasbro being cheeky, it works out as Generations in Japan uses the US names anyway.

I think the "Exhuast" misspellings might be deliberate, like an homage to the old Diaclone misspellings like "Marlboor" and "Citanes".

Good point.

I love the idea of Exhaust as a character, but I feel he needs a more unique deco, as both him and wheeljack are both mainly white robots with black and red as secondary colors.
Maybe have Wheeljack rely more on green for the headlights, with a black windscreen and grey thighs/forearms, with stark white as the main color, while Exhaust uses red highlights, blue windscreen and black thighs/forearms with a yellowed white to imply a smoke damaged white paint.

Really liking that last idea!

They just want us to emphasize the H, Ex-Hwast. ;)

He's tempting,that car mode is nice! But as I haven't picked up any Diaclone repaints so far, I'm not sure I want to start that particular addiction.

As much as I've come to love and appreciate the Wheeljack mold, and as stoked as I am about Exhaust, I don't think I can justify double-dipping on this guy. Vehicle mode looks great but 'bot mode is lacking for me; even painting his wings blue would've sold it.

Then again, Nonnef Prod. is restocking their Exhaust set in July... :-?

Skipping exhaust as I did wheeljack but maybe the Netfllix wheeljack may change my mind if I cave on the mold.

To be fair, both characters were based on mostly white vehicles with differing sponsor logos, and Exhaust hasn't had much of a presence up until a few years ago. But I like your idea!

And since you mention it, I wouldn't be surprised if they release a Wheeljack in Selects with gray forearms/thighs/head as an "animation model" version.
