    That's awesome. Here's hoping for some more pictures to show up soon. Looks like the head gimmick will be pretty cool. It's hard to tell just from these three shots of him, but I'm getting a Voyager sized toy feel from him. Hopefully he is (though either way I'll be getting him.

    Indeed. The heads look very nice, they might actually pull off that fitting into a classics display deal hasbro said they'd go for with blitzwing.

    blitzwing as a deluxe means classics astrotrain will have a appropriately scaled partner.
    Though I've been using energon sixshot as a good stand in for blitzwing in the mean time.

    I was getting the opposite vibe that maybe he is a deluxe.

    NICE! They NAILED that gimmick flawlesssly!


    Man, it's hard to tell his size class from a headshot considering how many Voyager sized toys have deluxe sized heads nowadays.

    Of course, once we see the whole figure it shouldn't be a problem.

    Looks like the head will be a different shade then the rest of the plastic on the toy.

    That looks really cool, I might have to get one but why aren't they out yet? The cartoon is already far into the story line and yet there are no toys to pick up? Did some body screw up and decide to release the toys after the cartoon? That sucks, cause this toy looks really cool.

    (yay frontpaged lol)

    man my favorite is the Mr. McAwsomepantface (the halloween one lol)

    i just realized this.....will finally we get a gimmick that transformation speed is identical to the toy (what i mean is the heads should flip around really fast, and unlike all transformers, which take forever to transform a bunch in the middle of a game, yea blitzwing will also take time transforming, but i can use his head gimmick more often in the game, just say some words, do the head whirl noise, say words in different voice lol)

    *Drooooool*

    His cannon proportions look wonky though. And we're still not sure if he's deluxe/voyager...

    I do believe he'll end up being a Deluxe, judging from a pre-order offer page from some website I stumbled upon few weeks ago.

    Sorry to be the guy that says no but...

    Yuck! Do not like the look of this!

    The faces look a little cheap, the colouring is a bit too pale, and the turrets are slightly off.

    Does it not look like this is the 'Animated Bumper Activator Bot' version?
    Or is it just me?

    Which is upsetting because TFA Blitzwing may be my favourite TF ever in the world.

    I will still fight you all for the figure, though.
