God, the more and more I see Jetfire the more and more I want him.

Wingblade doesn't look...bad...but I don't know if I want her or not anymore.
MetalStorm
so....Nightbeat is a Bumblebee/Goldfire repaint instead of RTS Jazz, interesting
femmebotfangirl
Oh god, Windblade is magnificent.
Cyclonus79
So far so good... Although seeing the faux cockpit on the underside of the jet is a little off putting.
Sciencefriction
Nightbeat is excellent. I wish they had given him a different weapon, but I'm much happier with him on the Bumblebee body than the Jazz body. Jhiaxus is exactly what I want, he turned out excellent. The remolded parts set him apart and make him unique. I love it. He's my favorite from this wave. Now hurry up with the rest of his team Hasbro...
Mechafire
So glad they used that mold for Nightbeat. It's such a better fit.
worldsgreatest
I'm digging all of these as well as the AoE Generations Deluxes!

That Windblade is SWEET.

I'm glad to see that. The RTS Jazz repaint didn't seem like a good fit, this looks good.
WoundSave
The more I see of Jetfire, the more afraid I am of what leader Megatron is going to do to my body.

Looks amazing, wish I hadn't gotten the classics so recently, but that's collecting some times.
Ayleron
Nightbeat and Skyfire are definite buys for me but of all the things we saw on display I still want Swerve the most!
Novaburnhilde
Awesome images!

They all look great. Nightbeat looks much better than I thought he would, Windblade looks beautiful, and I really love how Jhiaxus came out.
Kevin XI
Poor Nightbeat. I've grown to dislike that mold. Everyone else looks ok. Waiting for my Jetfire.
Ramdomaccess
No i want this but money
General Magnus
Im happy that the mold was changed. I have grown tired of the jazz mold.
Ribieconvoy
So they ended up using this mold for Nightbeat after all! Perfect! Will definitely pick him up to go with Hardhead, assuming the final version doesn't have weird mismatched plastic like Bee and Goldfire did.
Novaburnhilde
Sky-byte's looking snazzy!

And Roadbuster looks awesome.
Mr. Chaos
Well, a lot of them look good and I imagine will look better when properly transformed (I am pretty darn sure that Wingblade's arms are transformed wrong)


Edit: Yup, transformed wrong.
phoenixliger
love this design reminds me of the original figure. bravo Hasbro you've done a fine job.

the clear plastic under the plane I know a lot of folks don't like it but reminds me of the cameras they put into the fighter jets now so fi you need a reason for it being there well now you have one
Ktulu
Some nice looking stuff overall. Sky-Byte is a case where I think the original doesn't really need replacing - but at least this will make the character available again.
Silver_Prime
All are bought on site except Acid Storm, I may have to think about it some more. Still I love Windblade, Jetfire and Jhiaxus. My seeker armada will increase, yesssssssssss!
Sockie
Glad to finally see Nightbeat. He looks good!
SG hailstorm
Roadbuster and sky-byte are hands down mine!!!
roguesaint
Soooo gears' head look more like brawn to anyone else?
phoenixliger
I so see a Bulkhead repaint out of that roadbuster

(Edit) wait am I missing some thing here why does gears look like brawn?
charsdc2
At least this line is more promising!
SPLIT LIP
I'm just gonna say it... Sky Byte doesn't look good. The back kibble may be able to do something other than bundle up, like become shoulder pads, but the chest is just not good. The original figure is better. They STILL didn't fix his hand.
j3
I want to like Jetfire but that fake canopy chest ruins him for me. Roadbuster otoh, DAMN nice. Really like Nightbeat too
Fallout
so what about that jazz repaint as nightbeat? fake or preliminary or what?

nightbeat from bee looks so much cooler. what a sharp headsculpt.

can nobody orient jhiaxus wing's properly? i like how the nose cone folds up now but the lack of fins on it makes him look awful thin. real clever with the RID jhiaxus/BM jetstorm-style mouthpiece as a chin piece, but his open mouth looks a little silly.

someone else who doesn't like this sky byte! the shark mode looks awful and segmented with the teal face and the claw not folding up into a tail looks bad, and his lack of shoulderpads and added kibble don't make the real shark face on his chest worth it. i'll stick to the RID toy for now.
Tecrom Designs
Wow Jetfire is the CLEAR winner on all these, with Roadbuster not too far behind. Wingblade is cool too, but I can care less about the others. Great job on these three HASBRO!!
stormbringer251
Jetfire is the clear winner for the war for my money.
CrockAlley
I love most of them. I'm glad that Nightbeat has a great-looking head. I'm sad that his body isn't very Nightbeat at all. Goldfire or RTS Jazz, neither works. I'd rather have the better toy in RTS Jazz, then.
BWfan86
Not really interested in any of the new generations figures except for the previously announced rattrap. However, Sky-byte is pretty good looking. Even though I have no attachment to the character itself, I think the toy came out pretty well.
spursfan88
NIGHTBEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Orion Pax get's it in one!
FanimusMaximus
I'm guessing the new Sky Byte is Hasbros way of saying sorry we didn't let him in the HOF.
Dinobot Nuva
Yes on Nightbeat, Jhiaxus, Windblade, Sky Byte, Gears/Eagle Eye, and Acid Storm/Venin.

Solid maybe on Roadbuster, just to partner up with Whirl. Leader Jetfire looks fabulous but I'm still satisfied with my 2006 Voyager for now.
Slimaximus
Biggest disappointed is they didn't give Nightbeat a different weapon, I mean come on, Jhiaxus gets new guns why can't Nightbeat

I agree, the robot mode looks off. I especially hate the leg kibble. The shark mode looks like a great representation of his cartoon appearance though, which I really dig.

Only problem is it's not really gonna be able to be displayed as a shark due to the curvature of the mode... should have been sideways like the original toy. Not a bad toy... just not particularly good.
sh002
These I will buy. Movie stuff not a chance.
Shockwave9227
Whew, I thought Nightbeat was gonna be that Jazz retool we saw weeks ago.

I'm really liking all of the Generations figures!
Dinodigger97
I like them all, especially Roadbuster and Jetfire. Those two are perfection.
Lazerwave
Will they be posting official pictures of AOE toys?
BombSquad
Definitely getting Jhiaxus, Nightbeat, Gears, Acis Storm, Jetfire, and Roadbuster. Sky-Byte is a little disappointing considering that the original looks better (IMO). If the back kibble can be rearranged into his wings and the shark eyes changed from all red to white w/ a red pupil, I might consider picking him up. I just don't feel the toy does justice to the original character, but maybe in hand pics will change my mind. Also, Hasbro better deliver on their promise and makes his bio in haiku.

Rexidus
Aw man. I was really hoping that Nightbeat would be the Jazz mold. I wanted to grab a pair of that mold for some customs and would have liked to pay retail for them.

Jhiaxus I'm going to pick up because I'm not getting the Starscream version and I like the way he looks.

Windblade I am definitely buying and might be buying multiples. I could VERY easily see a Slipstream from this. Also I may redo my custom character Patch-Up with a more feminine mold.

Roadbuster looks good to me too. Since I really dislike the powermaster or what ever gimmick this appeals to me far more than Fansprojects. I hope I can say the same for Brainstorm.

Jetfire looks decent in robot mode but the fake chest really kills this for me. There is absolutely no reason it needs to be fake. So since a lot of people are digging this guy I might be able to get a good deal on a Classics Jetfire which I think looks a lot better and doesn't cheat.

skybite is a disappointment, that gorrila arm right wrist, odd shoulders, the weird missile and even more awkward tailfin, and those legs. and on a purely personal note, im not digging the shark mode posture. rid skybite is superior. road buster is almost everything i would want in the character, legs could be a bit beefier, but it's still great. love jet/sky fire, will get nearly all of the classics/generations.
JETFIRE-XL
And I'm sold. The list of Generations toys that I'll be after is too long to list so with that Hasbro what do you want cash,check ,credit,or money order. I'll take 2 Jetfires please.

I don't know. If the new Sky-Byte is MUCH less of a pain to transform than the original, then that makes it a winner in my book.
down_shift
Why the balls does Gears have Brawn's head?

Oh wait, I know why. To reuse the mold half a dozen times. Grrrrr.

I'm also not seeing an Autobot symbol on Windblade...
Cal
Nightbeat is...... WHAAAAAAAAT?!?!?

What happened to that RTS Jazz repaint we saw earlier? Well, I'm glad that Hasbro ran with the Bumblebee mold instead, but I'd rather they go with an all-yellow chest like this custom:



Takara, are you paying attention?
