    Thanks for the pictures! I kinda like him. FOC Jazz isn't really a good mold, and he kinda has skinny legs, but still...me like!

    A black head seems to mitigate the "floating head" syndrome somewhat.

    If the amount of materials on the arms and legs were reversed, the mold would look much better.

    This would give it smaller arms and larger legs just like the original concept.

    Seems closer to his current WFC/IDW look than the video game.

    Damn, the retools/repaints of this wave really outshine the original figures in which they were repainted from.

    ^ No kidding! Well, except maybe Shockwave and the Aerialbot, who are at least tied.

    Dunno man. Fireflight/Air raid's gun and bayonet combo are pretty awesome. (Don't get me started on the chest and head retool)

    Man oh man. Swipe is looking pretty bad there. I was really hoping the FOC molds would get progressively better. But I guess not :(

    Actually I'm kinda excited for this wave. We finally get ourselves a deluxe Insecticon with pretty good articulation (by Hasbro standards mind you), an Ultra Magnus that's at a deluxe scale and isn't a retool of Optimus, and two other figures, Fireflight (I refuse to call him Airraid) and Sideswipe are not too bad for being extensive retools of Jazz and Shockwave. Hopefully they're continue making more FOC figures because this line seems more interesting than the upcoming Beast Hunters lineup.

    I really want to get Sideswipe and Magnus, but only for the weapons.

    Maybe you just meant to say he's not simply a white repaint, but Ultra Magnus is most definitely a retool of Optimus Prime. They just gave him a new head + paint.

    But it works!

    Yeah you're more than likely right on that one, still this Ultra Magnus actually looks really cool. He's making me want to get the Optimus version as a companion piece. After having Animated Leader Ultra Magnus I never would have have expected to not only see an Ultra Magnus in the next Generations line-up but a voyager for the Prime series.

    Wow,those gun swap pics with the FOC Optimus really show how small of a mold he is.I'm kind of disapointed in Hasbro for that and the basic same mold use of Jazz for Sideswipe. Tsk!Tsk!

    I want the gun, but I hate the knees and elbows on this mold.
    Kinda sucks Sideswipe is stuck with dull surprise face.

    Or the extensive amount of added paint.

    This wave does look very interesting, but I still think Swipe is the weakest of a very decent bunch.

    Heck, the gun could go to either Magnus or Warpath
