The Official Transformers Facebook page has updated with more new images of upcoming Transformers toy releases. Shown off here are the IDW comic pack Deluxes from the Generations series. Along with the wave containing Orion Pax, Megatron, Bumblebee and Trailcutter, they have uploaded images of Thundercracker and Hoist from Generations Deluxe Wave 6. Thundercracker is a redeco of the Fall of Cybertron Starscream who along with the Takara-Tomy Skywarp rounds out this particular set of Seekers while Hoist is a fairly extensive remold of Trailcutter with a new head and new weapon that becomes his crane in vehicle mode. Check out the new images attached to this post or at the link above.

So Thundercracker and a higher quality shot of Hoist. cool
BenjaminXavier
Yeah, i'm digging the colors on TC. Hopefully Hasbro will put out Skywarp eventually, but I already have the Takara one on pre-order Just in case
WoundSave
They all look real good
soymonk
Hoist looks awesome.

ThunderCracker:


edit - please please please please do Skywarp too.

Please, Hasbro, I beg of you!
Cal
Yay! Finally a pic of Sandstorm's copter mode!

It looks significantly bulkier than the box art pic, but I'm okay with the design overall. I'm surprised to see that the tail isn't removable. I thought it would become a secondary weapon like Springer copter blades. Pity.

Not really feeling Thundercracker because of the ungainly Seeker design. Hoist still whets my appetite.
Knightdramon
Hoist is meh, Thundercracker will probably be purchased just for my love of the character.
MechaV
That Trailbreaker mold works a lot better for Hoist I think.

Hasbro really knocking it out with the remolds in this Generations line, between Sandstorm, Hoist, and now Dreadwing.
Digilaut
Both look cool. I kinda wish Thundercracker would be a different shade of blue, his ingame model is lighter, but I'll take it.

Weird to see the shape of his nosecone - didn't they make that shorter on Starscream for safety reasons?
ex dtw2003
I LOVE Hoist's color scheme, but something about him just ain't right IMHO.
Stryker055
That Thundercracker has some nice blue, by the looks of it. Shame he has that ugly face, but I expected that. Still will get him out of character obligation. Hoist looks fantastic, too, aside from that dopey-looking crane.
Blastimusprime
hoist and Tcracker, nice. but where is hasbros version of skywarp, i need to finally complete my seekers. just a few more bots and my classics/generations 1984-85 lineup will be somewhat complete.
Transmetal
I think it's the vehicle mode imo. Where the gun hand?
Grimlock_13
Now I officially couldn't care less about ever getting the latest issue of the Club magazine. I'm sure these pictures of Hoist here are better than whats in the mag anyway.

But I digress...Hoist looks awesome! Even better than Trailbreaker! Thundercracker looks awesome too, I'm always happy when they go with the darker toy colors for him rather than the lighter shade from the cartoon

Doubt we will see a Skywarp. Hasbro passed on the Legends class Skywarp and DOTM Skywarp while both saw release overseas. We only got a Classics Skywarp through the Target exclusive two-pack. Makes me wonder what they have against our favorite teleporter?

Yes, yes he does. I've been waiting for a classics-verse Hoist ever since I picked up Grapple. Cant wait to have the pair together on my shelf.

Just like Blaster, Hoist is the winner in the mold's second release (not to say that Soundwave and Trailbreaker aren't nice). Be cool if they'd figured out a way to get him his wings, but he still looks terrific.
Rexidus
I want that Hoist and LOVE Thundercracker.
MrFX
Another Seeker? Purchased.
The Swordsman
I like the look of Hoist, and the more I look at him and Trailcutter the more I think the mould would make a great Ironhide. But then again that's probably because I DESPISE the Universe 2.0 Ironhide/Ratchet and wish Hasbro would make something better.
Rattrap Primal
at last a proper Hoist!

It's interesting that we're getting more Thundercracker's now than Skywarp (and with that I have restarted the 2007 Botcon Storm over Thundercracker)
Cyber-Scream
I really like Hoist's alt mode. Thundercracka looks nice too.
aptkane
Well color me In LOVE with both...actually REColor me in love (see what I did there?)
Cadbane
This wave will be the best wave ever, I want to order a full case of it.
Mechafire
Nice
GreyFox787
I want them all...I haven't seen a Generations figure from the 30th anniversary line-up so far that I don't want...
worldruined
Love them both, especially Hoist.

But why no Skywarp, Hasbro?! </3

I was thinking the same thing.

I've wondered this myself. You know what I really think it is, although this may sound weird and maybe a little raciest. It's because his black. While Hasbro doesn't completely ignore the color black nearly all the figures that have been black were either just sold in Japan or were exclusives in the US.
Matty
Hoist looks fantastic. They did good with him.

Skywarp: "Hasbro is the man, keeping black seekers down. Help a brother out?"
Soundwinder
Aaaaaaaaaaand probably getting TC. I am a sucker for TC.

And the Generations Deluxe is just flawed enough (and the movie Deluxe is wildly different enough) that I want another Deluxe of G1 TC for my collection.
Sovietbot
I'm surprised at expense of WFC / FOC Skywarp. How Takara could not do it as from WFC? I hope that on mold Thundercracker to be accurate like of the first game.
rosewater
I am absolutely loving that Hoist! Some third party company needs to step in and make a set of add-ons that include his wings and a couple of gun hands to give him and Trailcutter!
cheetor71
Ok. They are both on my must have list.
Ratchets Hatch
In just two years, we've seen Generations Thundercracker, Masterpiece Thundercracker, Legends Thundercracker, and now FOC Thundercracker.

Now just put them all in a box and you know what I'm implying.
Onslaught24
A few more paint apps here and there and TC will be perfect. Now I just gotta order Skywarp
Powersa
I like both.
Obsidian X
Hoist looks so great! oh and Thundercracker will be bought though not as excited as for Hoist (already have classics, Masterpiece etc of him).

When it comes to deluxes, we rarely if ever get all 3 released in the same line on this side of the ocean. One of them (either SW or TC) always ends up as some TRU JPN exclusive. I'm betting that's what happens again. Get ready for the $37 BBTS pre-order.

Hoist is faburous
plowking
Do want that Thundercracker!!
Stygian360
Hoist is a must, but less so TCracker. Just worried that both Hoist and his brother mold Trailblazer will be hollow and flimsy seeming. I've been less than impressed with the FOC aesthetic done in toy form- with huge gaps in quality, appearance, and overall flimsiness. The biggest offenders thus far being Jazz and Sideswipe IMHO. Here's hoping that Hoist/Trailblazer surprise me by breaking with this rather dubious tradition.
slugslinger2004
Both look great, but not sure I can fit them in my budget since they are repaints.
Autovolt 127
Thundercracker looks great. the deco and the mold choice meshed perfectly. I hope i can still get a FOC Starscream before he comes out. I want the seeker trio once more.

Hoist is a brilliant retool. Seriously this year Hasbro is knocking these things out of the park.

Well Hoist will be bought on sight anyway but ues, I share the worry that TB and Hoist will be hollow and flimsy a.la the FOC deluxes.

I hope not.
