TFC Toys have released a picture of the packaging of their Uranos F-4 Phantom (aka not-Aerialbot Fireflight) via their Weibo blog. The packaging is in a similar vein to that of their Hercules - the gestalt name in one corner, artwork in the other, and a large window showing off the occupant of the box. There's also a return of the lineart style for the inner box tray artwork. Click on the thumbnail at left to check it out.

Uranus and Hercules are names from Greek mythology.

Just bring on the preorders. I only hope that the release schedule is a bit faster than the Hercules figures were.

I hope the design is better than the Hercules figures.

Not really in the mood to use lube on crotches or add eraser bits to knees.

Well... I don't mind a few months between releases to be quite honest, when said figures are $80-100 each.

Thats why you let the rich kids with money to burn find the problems for you.After they complain about the problems and they get fixed.Then order.I gave Devy almost a year before i got him.Now i don't have to worry about back and forth emails about needing new parts.

Maybe you won't have to lube crotches this time, just Uranus.

The name choice is intriguing- whereas Hercules was a strongman in mythology, Uranus was the progenitor of the Greek pantheon and father of Jupiter.

Uranus also ate all of his offspring save Jupiter, who had been hidden away for safekeeping, as he feared one of them would kill him (which ended up happening).

I think it's just because Uranus was god of the sky. Jets=Sky=Uranus, just as Devastator=Brute force=Hercules. Wonder what will be the name choice for computron... Apollo?
General Tekno
And would Monstructor be Cerberus possibly?

With Bruticus, if they were to ever make him, being Ares?

If these 3rd Party chodes are going to continue offering up stupid, blurred pics, I wish the news sites would just ignore them altogether. Don't bother posting the shit and maybe they wouldn't bother to do the shit.

Really? I guess you live in 2013 then because the last figures to complete Hercules got released earlier this year.

This is actually genius.

I just hope that TFC learned its lesson from Hercules on some of these QC issues. While the jets may offer less quirky overall designs in comparison to the construction vehicles, I can see these guys being a lot more fragile depending on the level of detail TFC incorporates. I fully expect to be blown away by this project, and hope it does not get delayed as bad as the early parts of Herc. Hopefully any major QC problems will be caught before they begin production this time around.

Bring on Superi....er....Uranus!
Megatron31
i would be willing to be they learned a lot form the first combiner and the second one will be a much better product for it. i just hope we see less blocky figures this go around.

Uranus isn't "complete" until CD get their hands on it.

Just updated their facebook page with a shadowy and blurry pic of the first "not superion" figure. http://www.facebook.com/tfctoys

Although Project Uranus? I'd've gone with Hermes or something similarly greek-themed after Hercules, but oh well.

Hercules = Roman | Heracles = Greek
Caelus = Roman | Uranus = Greek

So... Romans = Decepticons, Greeks = Autobots?

Let's start speculating what the other combiners might be named?

Their Bruticus could be Mars or Ares, Piranacon could be Neptune/Poseidon, I want Predaking to be Jupiter/Zeus. Any other thoughts?

Those actually seem pretty good. I would have gone with Apollo or the above mentioned Hermes for Superion though.

I do think they should stick to Greek names rather than Roman. I always preferred the Greek mythology.

Ah, You're totally right on that. And name meaning Sky, yeah, that works. I think Caelus sounds cooler than Uranus though.

Bring plenty of T.P...... The excitement for this has left me wiped out!
