    Found at an auction site, but with the TF Club watermark, I can't say for sure where those pics originally come from (tried to find a thread at the TFClub boards, to no avail).

    Mod Edit - Bios added:

    Jetstorm Bio
    Jetstorm believes that if he has to set in a fight, he might as well fight dirty. He's spent ages perfecting his fighting style, studying all the cheapest places to blast or stab another robot. He's not the strongest or most dangerous fighter among the Decepticons, but most Autobots would rather go up against anyone else. When Jetstorm fights, he fights to win at all costs, so he does everything he can to hurt his opponent as bad as possible. Even when he loses, it's very rate that his enemies don't go away with shattered optics or limbs damaged beyond repair.

    Wingblade Bio
    Wingblade is the best there is at what he does, and what he does is hunt Decepticons. The only Autobot with more confirmed deactivations to his credit is Ironhide, and that's only because Ironhide has been around longer. He trains constantly in both robot and vehicle mode, and maintains a database of vehicle scans so that he can rapidly train up in the new modes. Where other Autobots are scratched and dented, Wingblade keeps himself meticulously clean. He and his weapons are always clean, sharp, and dangerous.

    Jetstorm's colours are quite close to the real Antonov An-225.

    Kind of the point, though, in the real world vehicles aren't as colourful as they usually are in Transformers.

    "Wingblade is the best there is at what he does" :lol 

    Geek metahumor FTW.

    I thought these were kinda boring at first also...but they're realistic paintjobs which I like--and are appropriate for the movie line. Both molds are solid also.

    Wonder what the price'll be.

    The real movie toys had accurate real world vehicle modes and didn't look extremely boring.
    And the Cybertron toys ain't accurate to real world vehicles anyway so the white white white wasn't needed.

    Man, you're one of the first I've heard to not acknowledge that was a downside of the Movie line. Jazz? Ironhide? Starscream? Bonecrusher? I mean, those are some boring decos.

    I liked 'em, 'cause they were realistic, but they were boring.

    And yeah, the Cybertron molds aren't real-world...but they picked two that were reasonably similar to real-world vehicles. I imagine that was intentional, as were the real-world (if boring) paint schems.

    Cool. While Wingblade looks better in bot-mode now that I can get a better look at him, I still probably won't get him. As for Jetstorm, he looks even better up-close. He'll definetly be my Decepticon's "Soundwave". Also, about the realistic, yet boring, paint-apps, I like them, and don't think there will be any problem with Jetstorm fitting in with the rest of my collection.

    There is something slightly Springer-y about Wingblade. I may get him, if he shows up in regular stores here in Serbia.

    But my favorite color scheme for the other mold is Sky Shadow, whom I just purchased from a fellow board member a couple of days ago. So that one's a no-sell.

    They're close enough to the real world vehicles to look fairly realistic with a realistic paint job.

    Especially Jetstorm. He's basically the same plane with 2 engines moved to the tail.

    Crud, I wasn't going to even bother with these, but Jetstorm is looking like a definite maybe.

    Are those Cybertron keys I see?

    I don't have every movie toy but I can't recall seeing any with keys.

    Yep. They're Cybertron repaints without any remolding, so they've got their keys also.

    They're repaints from the Cybertron line, like a few of the Target exclusives.




    I really want the repainted Wingsaber. :D

    The only ones released thus far with keys have been the Terget exclusive Souts that were originally from the Cybertron line. The upcoming Cybertron Deluxes have Cyber keys as well.

    Edit: beaten badly :lol 

    Gah....I've been seriously trying to pass any bigger mold repaints, but Jetstorm is killing me here....I really like the mold (even though it does have 'empty midsection syndrome' robot mode) and I have Jetfire and Sky Shadow, both of which I really like. BLARGH! I may have to get it if my funds will allow. The Wing Saber mold is great, I'm just not digging Wing Blade as much as I am Jetstorm.

    I like the Jetstorm mold, but not the colors. I already own Galaxy Force Dreadrock, which I think has a better paint scheme.
