    -Frenzy is blue, Rumble is red/black                               in UNITED line.

    UN-19 WHEELJACK(no image)

    Finally, a good look at Kup & Perceptor!

    Also, I'm thinking I need to hold out for the Takara version of Lugnut, to get that nice purple animated paint deco. :drool: 

    Thanks for sharing!

    Kup looks excellent, though I am guessing the tires aren't properly placed?

    Not sure what to think about Kup.


    Animated Lugnut just looks so much more 'authentic' than the Hasbro verison.

    Lack of G1 style flames on Tracks is a minor disappointment.... and i'd somehow hoped for more chrome, or at least silver, on Wreckgar.

    I'm really digging Kup, except for his wheel kibble sticking out of his back. Hopefully that's either mistransformed, or that there'll be some alternate way to tuck them away into a less conspicuous place.

    Also, I appreciate Hasbro's effort to give Tracks a flying car mode, but man, those wings look distinctly non-wing-like when folded out like that. Don't get me wrong, I still plan on snagging that figure as soon as it's released, but it's just a shame the flight mode doesn't look better.

    Its a pic of the Hasbro version it says. The actual United release may be different.

    Looking good. Perceptor looks surprisingly nice ; I see lots of repaint / head sculpt switch potential in there.

    About Track's lame wings : I guess you could paint the inside of the doorpanels white to make the wings look more like one solid piece.

    A nice selection overall, two nitpicks.

    1) Kup looks too bulky, I wonder if there's an ironhide remold in future.

    2) Baby blue on Straxus?

    Kup looks awesome! Glad they went with an earth mode, but it's still close to his Cybertronian mode!

    Tracks' flight mode is bad though..but I couldn't care less. Never liked 'flying car' anyway.

    Lugnut's different pain scheme is tempting...

    He was transformed correctly, perhaps.

    Is that a rifle or a beatdown stick that Kup is holding? Because it would make an already awesome toy even awesome-er if it was the latter.

    And because I must own every Lugnut toy every made, United Lugnut is a go.

    Love the design for Kup. The wheels are probably mistransformed, but it's nice to see they retained a fake hood for the chest design. Jazz looks awesome with his speakers deployed in both modes and I'm impressed Hasbro managed to fit something so bulky in the doors. We finally get a look at Tracks' flight mode, but it's best left forgotten. The wings are just too small to do the feature justice.
