    Can't say I'm really thrilled with the alt mode yet. Some weird paint app choices, and blue dots on the roof thanks to the mechtech ports.

    But will definitely wait for some more pictures.

    Maybe Jolt is in the movie anyway? Maybe he's just a background character again at Autobot base..would be a bit of a waste to create a full cgi model for movie 2, only use is sparcely and then get rid of it.

    Certainly looks like it. The panel lines are all different.

    Since he isn't in the movie, the liberties they've taken with the altmode look pretty cool. I like the textured thing on the roof but I could live without the light blue lines...but they might look really cool on the robot. I'll probably wait for robot mode shots to decide.

    I hope this means we get a new Arcee mold too.

    Jolt has to be the first extra in the history of extras to get his own toy. Twice.


    ...I would rather a toy of one of the extras walking by as Chekov kindly asks anybody who will listen for a nuclear wessle. But you take what you can get.

    Wow, a new mold? Did NOT expect that, at all! You'd think this would just be another easy repaint to pad out the first wave! Really makes me wonder if Arcee and Barricade get new molds as well.

    Wow jolt gets a repaint to, can't wait to see Jolt back in the movie hopefully he gets to play a bigger role but with that many autobots in the third film I doubt that.

    I sure hope it's a new mold. That first one was not appealing at all.

    I thought Jolt would have been an interesting character to get to know a little more. I like the carbon fibre type hood.

    Whoa, Hasbro pimped their Volt, actually made it look cool. :lol 

    Well that's Deluxe Skids and Jolt with new moulds, certainly bodes well for Deluxe Barricade & Arcee. Deluxe Ratchet, probably not so much.

    And why do you think that Jolt will be in the movie? This is just a toy, not every character that has a toy appears in the movies. :)

    That is a seriously sweet paint job. This is how Electrostatic Jolt SHOULD have looked like.

    If this is jolt, then this sucks. If he isn't in the movie, why does he get a new toy when ratchet gets the same crap voyager. But I think I like the new paint job.

    While I already have a Jolt that I'm perfectly happy with, this here looks cool enough that I might replace him, lol. Though I'll wait for bot-mode pics and maybe a review before deciding. The Mechtech weapon is nice. Hopefully his whips turn out nice too.

    looks like it could be cool, not a big fan of the colours though... I wish the designers would release the reference pics they must have used for Jolt, there are far too few images of his bot design online.

    Looking forward to a new mold Arcee as well. It's a shame that the FAB toy was the best version of ROTF Arcee we got.

    That looks very panel-formerish.
