    Yup! So here is all the promotional/box art for the upcoming toys, you'll notice there are two we didn't hear about. FOC Thundercracker, and even more important Generations Hoist! There is no listing of these toys yet but as you can see its the same artwork that's being used on all of the new toys.

    Hoist, Thundercracker, and orion Pax are listed as TFPACK so feel free to speculate on what that may or may not mean.

    Big thanks to my buddy Hanypa for the inside track on these.

    I see the picture of Hoist, but where's Thundercracker?

    EDIT: Nevermind, there it is.

    Very nice find. Is that artwork for Springer showing him holding his weapons close together OR are they combined like a bayonet?

    Both were inevitable. Should be interesting to see how the toys turn out. With Dreadwing being the most likely candidate for Megatron's repaint, I'm wondering how they'll choose to repaint the Orion Pax and Bumblebee figures. With the right retooling and new weapons, I could see the Orion mold used for Rodimus, and Bumblebee's for Arcee.

    Glad to see proof of Hoist being a redeco of Trailbreaker as he should. I was getting a bit annoyed of what seems like the hopes of a Skids redeco from Trailbreaker.

    All this artwork looks great, and Thundercracker is a definite buy. But jeez, Orion's face scares the hell outta me.

    God I hope they decide to do a Voyager version of the Optimus Prime that they showed the Legends figure for.

    Looking at his chest/torso, I think the best candidate for a Bumblebee retool would be a G1-styled Knockout.

    Also, that "Trailbreaker" is blue; that's TOTALLY really Skids...

    Wow, I think I might keep that Blitzwing box. That looks amazing. Also yay for Hoist.

    Loving a lot of this artwork. Orion and Muscle car Bee's faces look a tad creepy, though.

    Legends Bumblebee art is super cool though. Lots of personality in that.

    I would rage mightily. Unless it was pre-op Arcee.

    Blitzwing looks positively badass. Thundercracker is an automatic buy. I'll probably get everything except for Orion Pax.
