Finally, a good look at Kup & Perceptor!

Also, I'm thinking I need to hold out for the Takara version of Lugnut, to get that nice purple animated paint deco.

Thanks for sharing!

Kup looks excellent, though I am guessing the tires aren't properly placed?

Not bad at all.

The wallet is already crying. 2011 is gonna be a busy year....

Not sure what to think about Kup.


Animated Lugnut just looks so much more 'authentic' than the Hasbro verison.

Lack of G1 style flames on Tracks is a minor disappointment.... and i'd somehow hoped for more chrome, or at least silver, on Wreckgar.

I'm really digging Kup, except for his wheel kibble sticking out of his back. Hopefully that's either mistransformed, or that there'll be some alternate way to tuck them away into a less conspicuous place.

Also, I appreciate Hasbro's effort to give Tracks a flying car mode, but man, those wings look distinctly non-wing-like when folded out like that. Don't get me wrong, I still plan on snagging that figure as soon as it's released, but it's just a shame the flight mode doesn't look better.

all will be mine!

Its a pic of the Hasbro version it says. The actual United release may be different.

Looking good. Perceptor looks surprisingly nice ; I see lots of repaint / head sculpt switch potential in there.

About Track's lame wings : I guess you could paint the inside of the doorpanels white to make the wings look more like one solid piece.
Urluck
A nice selection overall, two nitpicks.

1) Kup looks too bulky, I wonder if there's an ironhide remold in future.

2) Baby blue on Straxus?
Ktulu
Excellent imo~
Digilaut
Kup looks awesome! Glad they went with an earth mode, but it's still close to his Cybertronian mode!

Tracks' flight mode is bad though..but I couldn't care less. Never liked 'flying car' anyway.

Lugnut's different pain scheme is tempting...

He was transformed correctly, perhaps.

Is that a rifle or a beatdown stick that Kup is holding? Because it would make an already awesome toy even awesome-er if it was the latter.

And because I must own every Lugnut toy every made, United Lugnut is a go.
Cal
Love the design for Kup. The wheels are probably mistransformed, but it's nice to see they retained a fake hood for the chest design. Jazz looks awesome with his speakers deployed in both modes and I'm impressed Hasbro managed to fit something so bulky in the doors. We finally get a look at Tracks' flight mode, but it's best left forgotten. The wings are just too small to do the feature justice.
Vangelus
Oh god, I need United Lugnut. D: And hooray for Tracks and Jazz's additional features finally getting photos!

Kup looks lovely.
Starscream NZ
Awesome line up. Now all we need is a better Blaster and Ultra Magnus, and a new mold Arcee and we're set for TF:TM Autobots!
Omnius
United Lugnut trumps the Hasbro version, if you ask me. Kup looks awesome as well, turned out far better than I could have hoped. Looks like a busy 6 months ahead for collecting!
TheRhymenoceros
Lovin' Kup, looks great.
Cal
You know, the only thing that dissapoints me about Kup is that he doesn't come with Recoil. I'm crying for more Targetmasters. Another custom for FansProject to consider perhaps?
KA
of all the circuit glitched diode blowing dim wittery...they left a piece out!
Yaujta
The Takara version of Lugnut makes the Hasbro version look poor.
Sad, really. The purple one would probably sell really well in the US. I know if given the choice, I'd take the Takara version 1,000-times over.
KA
oh man, takatomys lugnut blows the hasbro one right out of the water. or air rather.

that all blue straxus looks pretty cool too.

looking most to wreck gar DARE TO BE STUPID WHAT DID I SAY
Superquad7
Kup looks FANTASTIC.
Recall
Kup looks tremendous especially the alt-mode. I wonder if a legend figure would fit in the back of it, stood up of course as if going for a ride
Fit For natalie
Looks like TakaraTomy based their deco on the cover for issue 18, where Straxus is mostly blue.

Damnit, now I'm going to have to track down legends Wheelie!
SharkyMcShark
These toys are not Generations releases. Misleading title.
Thundercrackah
That Kup is awesome. Hell they are all awesome.
Bumblethumper
I would've preferred if they'd gone with a vintage altmode for Kup, but this'll do.

I like what they've done on the shoulders and chest. Nice use of kibble. The colour is also spot on.
Stormcrow
LOVE.

Close, but no Cy-gar?


Kup looks pretty kewl - nice old-man-face. The new toy fits his cartoon design a lot more than the G1 toy did, even with the different alt-mode.

Can't say I care for mostly-blue Straxus.

Jazz continues to look awesome in every photo. Tracks' flight mode is... uh... yeah...

Lugnut looks decent in Animated purple(r), though the Hasbro one looks nice too. I'll have to get a good look at both in the future.
ThaConqueror
Kup's lookin' pretty sweet! Mine!
DarthCrusher
Kup looks phenomenal. I'll be adding a cy-gar, though.

Hmm... I wonder if Perceptor's hands are the right size to hold Blurr's gun...
Smokescreen
Kup looks great IMO. Nice update to his old G1 design.
exclusacon
Generations does not have one weak figure!....
Cal
I'm hoping the blade of Wreck-Gar's axe would be coloured red for the United release. Can anyone tell where it goes in alt mode?

Secondly, it appears that Perceptor's chest can flip down. Just for decoration, or perhaps hinting at a microscope feature?

axe becomes rear wheel so it would be silver

I think hasbro said at botcon it's analysis platform, not microscope.
Toxicon
Kup looks positively excellent!

Lugnut is friggin GLORIOUS.

And Tracks' flight mode, well, I just assaulted a haberdashery and ate every single hat they had. It's not astounding, but hey, at least it's there.

Thanks, those are great.

I like the green they used on Lugnut better than the earlier picture.
optimusfan
"Earth mode" Kup looks very good. I like the faux G1 hood/windshield chest on his robot mode. That, the colors, and the headsculpt evoke the character quite nicely!

Oh? In that case, I don't see why it was painted/molded in red in the first place. It would match the front wheel.
Wollstone
I hope those tires fold back on Kup, other than that he looks great.
G1Wheeljack
Kup's looking great! I do hope his shoulders can move up a bit more, they seem a little low. Lugnut's color choice is interesting and Tracks flight mode is a bit dissapointing but Kup steals the show!

Oops, you are right.
