    I think it was announced a while ago through some pics someone posted on here but they were asked to take the pics down by the original site the pics came from.

    It looks like we'll never see the name "Slingshot" again. He's been renamed "Airazor" it seems.


    In any case, they're both "must buy" to me. Unfortunately, it's tough to have a nice display when you've got these guys AND the Ultra Silverbolt and Onslaught. Ah well...

    wow, i had forgotten how bad Stormjet/Silverbolt was in bot mode, i haven't un-combined my Energon ones since i got them... and it looks like they made Air Raid an A-10 instead of the JSF mold, wierd (just cuz the other mold more resembles his old self)

    overall though, just not that excited about these, i don't think the decos are better than the Energon versions (Bruticus is actually quite a bit worse) but i think they're good molds Silverbolt aside and nice for anyone who wants 'em.

    Awesome boxes.

    So are these gonna be store exclusives, or wide release? I see no exclusive stickers on them.

    This is the first I've heard of Superion. Too bad I already have the Energon version or I'd definately get him. Bruticus will be mine though :D

    He's called Airazor now. Hasbro hasn't been able to use the name Slingshot since G1...

    G1 series. We've seen the instructions for Bruticus...

    Delicious. I love these molds, and box sets are an automatic win.

    The way Universe 2 has been planned out and carefully orchestrated (G1 Series, Beast Wars Series, Armada Series) is outstanding... and since all the world's yellow paint was used up in Universe 1, we don't have to worry about that issue, either. :p
