    Interesting that Thunderwing's transformation is tagged as 2- "Easy" while the others are tagged as a 3 or higher (Intermediate or Advanced).

    Something tells me I'm going to be disappointed with the transformation.

    I'm afraid he might have a similar transformation like Universe Silverbolt does. :(

    With Generations and Hunt for the Ddecepticons they FINALLY started mKing the TF difficulty listing on the package MEAN something, instead of just being default by size class. So Thunderwing is most likely gonna be pretty simple and joining UNi Galvatron in the 'shoulda been a voyager' club....

    Why would Thunderwing be in the "shoulda been a Voyager" club?

    Galvatron should be in there BECAUSE of his complexity. Thunderwing doesn't look very complex, and thus I don't see why he should be a voyager because of it.

    Only reason I could see to make him bigger would be to allow the drone jet to transform, and give him a more leaderlike stature.

    If it was a Voyager, somebody would be complaining because it's not an Ultra.

    Make it an Ultra, somebody will starting complaining because they want Leader class Generations toys.

    Make it a leader somebody will want a Masterpiece.

    Make it a Masterpiece, somebody will complain that it costs too much and that they won't pay more than Deluxe price for it.

    I don't get it. Why do some characters feature "Reveal the Shield" and some don't?

    They want to release more Generations toys than there can be in Generations waves? Instead of only three new classic characters at a time, they can release six.

    Also, Tracks, Jazz and Grapple needed Autobot prefixes to get their names on the packaging. Those three are appearing in RtS with a new prefix. That will probably have something to do with it too.

    Good point! Having the Autobot prefixes, spoils the whole deal with RtS, which is suppose to make the kids guess which faction the figure belongs to. I'm sure kids wouldn't wonder if "Autobot Tracks"could be an evil decepticon. :lol

    Well, it doesn't have to be three. Its sometimes four or even two. Three or four is their usual amount though. You never hear of a wave with five or more new figures in.
