Aye, could you please attach the pics here or photobucket em or sumthing?
Sliverbolt sounds good, more Autobot planes to counter the complete lack of them in animated!
unicronsupreme
I'd really like to see these pics but I'm not going to make an account at that site in order to see them.
Peaugh
Yay. Even if you make an account you have to wait to be approved by an admin. Locked pictures FTL.

Artwork looks *very* G1ish.

Hasbro's really into busting up expectations for combiner teams, aren't they?

Silverbolt looks to have potential, though it's a red & white pointy jet to follow the red & white non-pointy jet that is Powerglide. I think Silverbolt may work a little better as a larger size toy though.
Josh
very nice

im likin that alt mode
Gryph
That's pretty sweet.
Hiro Prime
So the Ultra Autobots are all Jets? That makes the Seekers small by comparison. Still a new Silverbolt in that scale is cool to me.

Thanks to OzFormers members Griffin and Demonac:


Marvel TF Wolverine & Venom:



Possible alternate transformation of Sunstreaker into Sideswipe:





Griffin is notorious for his sick sense of humour - you also have to be an Aussie resident to register on OzFormers to see the pics

SILVERBOLT!? OH god this is just too awesome.
*forgets Powerglide*

Thanks for the pics. I can't wait to find out more about the Marvel Crossovers. So far, I want one of each. Are the green and grey Hulk the same molds? What are Venom and the Human Torch's alt modes? Thanks again for the pics.

Wow. Just wow. The Marvel guys are significantly better at this than the Star Wars guys. Let them do all of the Crossovers from now on. XD

Wolverine looks almost exactly like Cybertron Overhaul. I see lots of people doing that.
Tober
I didn't go to the Toyfair - it's a show run by Hasbro to promote their toys to retailers, so only retailers and select media people are allowed. Wrong city for me anyway... not that that stopped Griffin.

These quotes from the OzFormers thread where I asked about the Corssovers:

I didn't take pics of them though...you'll need to wait for Griffin.

Guess we're waiting for Griffin to return.

Those Marvel TF's are HOT!

SilverDragon
When I think of 'Silverbolt' I think 'OH DARK POISON OF MY HEART'.

Marvel TFs don't look anything more to me than random kitbashes.
Bass X0
so much win. silverbolt is a must buy. definitely better than Classics Jetfire.
Vector Sigma
Hmm, I love the idea of silverbolt, don;t rcall hearing about him before. The crossovers are silly but not as terrible as the last round...
Bass X0
i hope we see new heads for the Marvel toys into actual Transformers characters.
Fort Max
Is it me or are Wolverine and Venom the same vehicle?
Maximo Prime
Silverbolt looks NIIICE.

They are different. Wolvie has tires on his sides where Venom has them on his upper arm. Similar vehicle maybe, but different design. Probably some Sideswipe/Sunstreaker deal with same alt mode, but different transformation and robot mode.

They look completely different to me. Wolverine's front wheels are in his torso, under his arms.

Oh, and that's one awesome jet for Silverbolt.

looks like they are taking ever gestal leader and making them into an ultra....first onslaught...then silverbolt...who's next....motormaster!!!!

man i hope so....it would be badass to run autobots over with him lol

and no hun-grr, center guy to predaking, and no piranaking center (mispelled or whatever it is...you know what i am talking about)

i don't think we will get a update for the constructicon leader cause we already got classic devastator (as a repaint)

Probably just a bad angle or mistransformation (I mean they transformed him into Sideswipe!), because his left shoulder seems to be the right height.

That Venom looks nice.
Although when I think "Venom" I do not think "Jeep".

Hasbro AU evidently weren't provided with prototypes (probably only a few protos exist, anyway).

Companies use cardboard cutouts of toys when there aren't enough protos to go around.
SPLIT LIP
ROFL at Marvel TFs.

Susnstreaker is PIMP.

Silverbolt... it's weird, because I might... just... hrk... get, him.
PopCulturePooka
To me Venom looks like some kind of Muscle Car

Don't forget Skattershot. I want me a gunship.

Cool, i couldn't really see it well in between all the work I'm totally doing.

FFN, you're good at id'ing death machines, what kinda jet is Silverbolt based on?
ZacWilliam
The Good: They did Silverbolt! Awesome to see his robot mode will capture the classic toon look. I wish we could see the head in that picture, he MUST have the classic Silverbolt lips!

The Bad: This pretty much nixes all chances of combining Aerialbots in Classics just as Onslaught did for the Combaticons. Sigh. I know it's looking a gift horse in the mouth and it's spectacular just to get a G1 looking Silverbolt but I SOOOO wish they'd gone combiner for these. I want a Skydive and the rest to go with him.

The Weird: Another big Autobot jet. (Who'd have thought Jetfire would be the runt of the litter ) Lot of focus and the very few flying Autobots here. Hmm.. Other Classic Autobots they could do Ultra Class and have it make sense... Inferno (firetruck with lights and sounds would rule) Grapple, Omega Supreme (obviously, but he may be in Animated), Either of the two Dinobots that didn't make Animated, Roadbuster or Whirl would ROCK, Broadside (though he's sometimes a plane)... anyway lots of choices...

yoooooooooo that is so sold!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Silverbolt looks sweet in that package. Very nice.

for a cardboard cut-out.
Optimus Prime
That looks pretty good, I'll probably get one. I wonder if they'll make all the Combiner "leaders" (non-Constructicon) into figures? So far we've got Onslaught and Silverbolt...who next? I could see them doing Menasor and Hot Spot.
Smokescreen
Silverbolt looks awesome and I'm liking the Wolverine TF. However, I'm not feeling Venom. Don't know why. Maybe I'll like him more when I see some close up shots.
Liokaiser
Even the artwork on the package looks sweet.
Lupis Convoy
SWEETNESS!

If this is what they are seeing at the toyfair, I have to wonder what they are going to show at BOTCON this year! ROCKING!

Silverbolt FTMFW!

Nope. If you look at Venom, he looks like a pickup truck - in fact, he screams movie ironhide - and the hood splits open; on wolvie, his hood folds down it seems. Either way, maybe similar vehicles but definitely different.


Also, Silverbolt is pimpin'! That box art screams G1!
Rotorstorm
Silverbolt looks ace, interesting how they've decided to preview roughly how sideswipe will look.

looks to be a good mold

Bring it!!!

Wow, Silverbolt looks really damn nice. Although seeing him now makes Powerglide's colors look even worse. If you're going to release more Autobot jets as Classics, Hasbro, how about making some of them not white and red?
