TFW's Generations Waspinator Gallery Now Online

We're back with our next gallery from the upcoming Generations IDW Deluxes Wave 3, and this time we've got a Predacon for you. We're not talking about the dragons from Beast Hunters or the original five from Generation 1 either, we're talking about the Beast Wars Predacons and Hall of Fame Fan's Choice winner Waspinator!

Waspinator is one of the two complete new molds in this assortment of Generations Deluxes. He is an excellently done little deluxe toy, and very accurate to the look of the CGI model of the character in the show in robot mode. The beast mode suffers a little with exposed robot hands, but is otherwise an excellently realized beast mode. In beast mode, Waspinator's insect legs can be adjusted to allow him to balance on them - which was something very few insects from the Beast Wars era could accomplish. In both modes Waspinator's wings can be made to flap at the push of a button, which is a cool feature but I'd have liked a way to lock them in the "up" position for flying poses. In robot mode, Waspinator's knees are a little restricted, which does limit his poseability a little.

Overall though these are very minor flaws which are easy enough to overlook. Waspinator is a solid release with an excellent design and a brilliant likeness to the show design of Waspinator. If you're a fan of Beast Wars or just a fan of Waspinator as a character, this is one toy that you will want to pick up. As always, open up the link below to see our gallery and judge for yourself:

IMO, best Waspinator toy ever!

Love the Happy Pose, looking forward to getting this guy!

OK, here's my money, take it already.

The robot mode looks amazing, but my god, the beast mode is terrible. I do not know what the hell it is, but Hasbro has NEVER been able to recreate the beast modes to look to good since the original toys.

Same thing happened with the newer Dinobot. He has a great show accurate robot mode (despite being the wrong colors) but the beast mode left a lot to be desired.

If it weren't for Cheetor sucking on both accounts (or as I called him, The Hunchback of Notre Tron), I would say that Hasbro seems to only get either the robot mode right OR the beast mode, but not both. You might as well have the original toy for the beast mode and the new toys for the robot modes.

You don't like the new Cheetor's Beast mode?

Now they need to do a Rattrap. TM version with backpack that flips around, removable wheel shield..

Ooh...Agent want Waspy figure.
Darkryt
Waspinator RULES!

Toy of The Year, no contest! Well, maybe Rhinox, but that's the only feasible competition.

IMO, the new Rhinox figure absolutely nails BOTH the beast mode AND bot mode. The rhino mode looks EXCELLENT.

Waspinator is the number one figure on my xmas list. I'm going to have to get Santa clause more booze if I want the figure.

Right character, wrong look! I want a show accurate, hairy little bucked tooth rat with a box of waspinator parts!!
Autovolt 127
Man Hasbro is now doing the Beasties right.

Just in time, it's believed his wave is now starting to get released.

That beast mode looking as bad as it does is making me consider passing on it.

Rumor has it a Rattrap is in the works!... but considering his wave mate is a Tankor... we should be prepared for a (hopefully properly done) BM Rattrap verses BW/TM versions of him..

It will be season 1 body, just like in the IDW comic that it will come with

I haven't seen that many good pictures of Rhinox yet, so I cannot say either way.

I hated that Cheetor. I bought him, opened him up, and went back to RYU 20 minutes later to return him he sucked so much. I even told the employee I was returning it because it was one of the worst Transformers I ever bought.

Comic distribution hear is spotty at best with IDW.. so I did not know how he looked in the comic.. and was just a 30th edition.. what does Tankor look like?
ORIO
post Skids' gallery already Simon!

Saving the best for last eh?

I love the "classics pic". I need a Henkei Dinobot.
Spider 001
The alt mode looks absolutely horrible! What the hell were they thinking???
NemiMonkey
YES!!! He can wield himself.

These tantalizing pictures are making me want Waspy more so than I already did before. Come on HTS list these guys already so I can give you my monies.
moreprimeland
Amazing, will have to add this one to my BW collection for sure.


Kudos to the Gallery folks...very nice pix!!

I don't think it's too bad. The only flaw (and yes it is kind of a big one) is the fact that you can see his robot arms in beast mode.

He's next on my to do list, so hopefully all being well I can share some pics of him in the not too distant future

Not so much a case of saving as my Skids came with two left hips so I've been doing the others first while getting that sorted out. Fortunately my good friend Shockscream was able to hook me up with a right hip (which arrived in an envelope marked "don't let them take Skids!")

Tankor hasn't shown up yet to my knowledge. I'm a couple of issues behind myself so he may have appeared already. Thing with Tankor though is that it is a name which sometimes gets used as a workaround for other names that are unavailable, so it might be an alternative to one of those for all we know. Time will tell - him and Rattrap are meant to be Wave 9, which is the next one out after the Starscream / Skywarp / Scoop of Mini-Cons wave (which is up next). We'll probably see them at Toy Fair.

I want this and Rhinox. They both look incredible

Waspinator will be my number one figure on my Christmas list.

Haha yes pretty much! There was a temptation in another gallery I was doing to have bits flying off too, but my worry is always that I'd break something in the process. I'll leave the glory of doing a "destroyed Waspinator" pic to another

Novaburnhilde
Both Rhinox and Waspinator look amazing. Both in robot and beast modes. The only small thing I can think of, is the fact that I feel like Waspinator's eyes should be purple-ish, but that can be easily fixed.
LegendAntihero
Wasp looks beautiful. I'm glad I held out on getting Wasp until his Generations toy came out
Jetstorm
Was this ever available on the Hasbro Toy Shop? Just wondering if I missed out or not, or if he hasn't been for sale yet.

Otherwise I'll just keep an eye out for him in the stores.
LegendAntihero
Waspinator is awesome and he hardly looks robotic

No, at least not yet. He has been reported to be seen at both Target and Walmart stores.
Stepper
Waspinator finally,am happy.

Ok cool. Because I just saw all the Rhinox stuff being posted and I was lucky that he was still on HTS so I could order him, thought I'd get Waspinator too. Hopefully soon, I'd rather just get it online (for a fair price) than drive around looking for him at the stores.
Verno
If BBTS could hurry up and get Waspinator 'in-stock', that would be great.
bsutton1
Anybody think that the mold could be used for Venom or Ransack?
Sol Fury
The thought had crossed my mind - I'd like to see him as Ransack personally, since it's such a different deco. I have a hunch that we'll see Buzzsaw out of this sooner or later - probably with an update of the alternate head - my gut tells me that'd be a Club / Botcon thing. though.
