TFW's Generations Windblade In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 08-31-2014 at 04:35 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
WindbladeRobot48 Next up in our series of gallery updates, we have a look at the Fan-built 'bot herself, Windblade! She's billed as "the first fan-built bot" as well as being the 30th in the series of 30 special edition releases to commemorate 30 years of Transformers. She's also something quite rare in modern Transformers - a complete new character rather than a homage or a reference to someone in the past lore.

Windblade has evidently had a lot of time spent on her toy. From her detailed paint apps to her sword complete with scabbard and removable fan in her "hair", Windblade really does live up to the billing of being a bit special. She's got a cool design with a few nice touches, including the ability to angle her VTOLs forward, the aforementioned removable fan, and the sword, which can be sheathed in a scabbard with a variety of different posing options. The scabbard has tabs on either side which can fit into any of the "cuts" for the swivel joints as well as groves on the jet nosecone, so Windblade can wear her sword on her back, her hip, and so on. The scabbard also has a 5mm handgrip allowing you to do some nifty poses involving Windblade drawing her sword - we quickly found she could do a lot of fun samurai poses.

We really like Windblade and hope that we can see more toys with her standard of design, detail and "nice touches" come along soon enough. Check out our gallery and see if you agree:

TFW's Generations Jhiaxus In-Hand Gallery

Posted on 08-30-2014 at 12:53 PM by Sol Fury under Generations / Classics
JhiaxusRobot67 We've got another new Generations toy to share a look at with you today! The next wave of Generations will shortly be arriving at US retail and one of the four new toys being released in the new assortment will be Jhiaxus!

Generations Jhiaxus is the second time that the main antagonist of the 12 issue Marvel Transformers Generation 2 series has got a toy, but this is the first one to have been molded to look like his comic incarnation - that said, he's got the colors of his previous toy release, a store exclusive in the Robots in Disguise line. Either way, it's the first time Jhiaxus has has a mass retail, non-exclusive release!

Jhiaxus is a remold of the Generations Armada Starscream, an extensive remold that sees him gain not only a new head but a completely reworked chest / upper torso, jet nosecone, wings, tailfins and weapons. A new transformation step is also added, with the nose of the jet now folding into the chest instead of just hanging in front of the robot's waist. There's plenty of details in the design too, though the bright orange colors - and it really is a garish shade - does make it hard to properly appreciate the level of detail worked in.

Check out our gallery and see what you think!

Rattrap Transformers concept artist Emiliano Santalucia is at it yet again, posting up a new Generations Rattrap piece on his blog. In addition, he also has this to say:

"Yet another of my Transformers Generations figure designs!
Transformers Generations Rattrap! This was done shortly after Rhinox, Waspinator and Cosmos, and I got to do only the Robot mode. But it's one of my favorite sketches and I love how the toy turned out!"

Generations Sky-Byte Found at US Retail!

Posted on 07-30-2014 at 08:23 AM by StayingInTheBox under Generations / Classics
HPKdlWS Let the hunt begin for the next round of Transformers Generations figures! Earlier today it was reported by TFW2005 boards member alkamist that everyone's favorite shark, Sky-Byte, was found at a Target in Pinole, California! No sign of case mate Roadbuster (TFW2005 gallery here), but the Wrecker should be out in the wild too given this Sky-Byte sighting. If you're still on the fence with buying this Predacon or just want to see more, check out the TFW2005 gallery of Sky-Byte for several highly detailed images.
