    well technically that thread is about the news-this one is about the characters themselves, plus this thread will last longer as its not going to get lost in a torrent of news.

    i like them, but i wish they had transformed them properly and not forgotten the wings in the picture

    While the toys do look a bit iffy, I really like the guys' design, headsculpt and all.

    Plus I'm pretty sure they'll look better when transformed by a fan.

    Eh, I'm kind of warming up to them.

    A couple of things I'm considering about them... first I wonder if they do have hands in both robot modes as it seems possible to have panels they flip out of and such. Second... looking at Jetfire as compared to Jetstorm... I'm wondering if they didn't pull a Sideswipe/Sunstreaker with these two and one of them actually has a reverse transformation where the one's back is the other's front and such...

    Frankly, I'll be looking hard at them over the next couple of months and waiting for someone to give us some early release info (where's Pheugh when you need him).

    I dunno they look okay in vehicle mode, the robot mode just looks plain goofy.

    Undecided at the moment, but my first impression is really not that good.

    I'm wondering what happened to their wings.

    They clearly have them as Safeguard after all.

    My major issue is like most folk the lack of hands but also that I actually like the way the Animation model of the combined mode looks the white half of the face looks better than the orange on the toy but ill get them anyway.

    Welcome to Men On Transformers. Where we look at Transformers...from a Male point of view.

    Antoine: Today we have a wonderful new addition to the new trend of deluxe two packs for the new Transformers Animated Line, the as of now unreleased Jetfire and Jetstorm with the ability to combine in Both modes

    Blaine: Now I personally have been waiting for Hasbro to fully express the beauty of the missionary position as is very artistically depicted in the combined alt. mode.

    Antoine: And I think the combined bot mode gives new meaning to the phrase "joined at the hip", something Blaine is very familiar with.


    Blaine: I'm tellin you, if they each come with their very own personal matching color "light saber" I might just purchase this in advance from Jenny

    Antoine: ooooo, now you done lost yo mind.

    Blaine: I give this future release the around the world and back snap!









    ....If you ask me... I "HAYTED IT".
