    I wouldn't rush to judgment on the Jetfire and Jetstorm figures yet. Those are some pretty terrible pictures that are out there right now. The pictures I saw way back of the grey prototypes looked really good. And yes, of course they have hands! In both robot modes! The promo pics are just mistransformed. Once they are properly transformed and posed out, they should look pretty cool.

    Great news. The hands were the biggest issue with me.

    Now, if only they had.... I dunno... WINGS. If they had wings, I'd probably end up buying them, even though I only get a few Animated figures.

    Well, that's dandy, but that doesn't really help much about how much of a crapfest these two figures are.

    This is both good and unsurprising news, if the fact that promotional pics are almost always mistransformed on the box and otherwise

    Let's hope mr. Wyatt is right..they'll probably look alot better when transformed right (although the jet modes are still icky). Right now they're a huge turnoff..

    Wings are also confirmed!

    The artist of the comic confirmed that the clear parts along the front of the legs form the wings. You can actually pretty clearly see the hinge on the inner sides of the knees. Also the kneecaps move along with the wings.



    Also, the blue and white wings visible in the box art on the right side are exagerated. They are the dual tiny tailfins visible on the top of the flight modes just behind the cockpit.

    How the heck do you setup and do a photo shoot for two unreleased figures, yet you manage to mis-transform them so badly?

    I'm glad they have hands, but daaaamn.

    that does help, but for the simple fact that its a redo in one package with a different face still makes them look like douches

    Potentially bad news... for my wallet. I guess I'll wait to see if they are cool on the actual show. Can't remember if they were annouced to be season 3 or not

    They're still unappealing, even with hands.

    Repaint them in Purple, White, and Grey, and I'll buy a set. Until then, no dice.
