    Whoa! These new pictures are very very impressive! Loving the poseability and all the little accessories they come with, and the clip on attachment system that they're using too! Very very nice!

    Minor quibbles would be: that chain looks a tad too long for my tastes but it's definitely not a deal breaker (I'm sure I can find a way to place it more securely on his back kibble there); and I'm a little disappointed that Backfiery's wings don't turn into swords or longer blades of some sort (a bit of a lost opportunity there, but still an awesome looking figure!).

    does Backfiery have 2 swords? If the wings can be swords that would have been uber.

    Looks like they Photoshopped the hell out of them. They are pulling Hasbro tricks to make the figures look better. Not cool, not cool. They tried to make that dull grey plastic look metallic. :rolleyes:

    Yes, they are close. They are larger than warcry and flameblast. I saw them at Botcon and they have a nice size and chunk to them.

    The only thing I wish on these figures is that Thundershred and BackFiery had faces that looked like Sharpnel and Kickback's animation models. Other than that, they look spectacular.

    I'm loving just about everything about these... except I wish their faces matched the G1 better. Even just the decision of full-face VS faceplate (kickback). I know they can't mold factions on them. Will have to count on some stickers for that.

    Accessories, sculpt, color, etc. all FANTASTIC. Gads, they're raising the bar big time.

    No worries. Somebody will make the g1 heads. Hopefully they'll make the guns to go with them as well

    Welcome to the world of advertising. XD Still, the dull gray plastic isn't a deal breaker for me either. Painting those bits silver shouldn't be too hard; either with drybrushing or masking them up and going to town with an airbrush or a can of Krylon metallic paint.

    They don't look photoshop to me at all. Looks like they use good lighting to shoot them.
