    Found this on tumblr so I doubt it's very reliable but it looks pretty real. Source should be fourth one down right after Strafe.

    Pretty sure those (as well as the others in the link provided) are customs.

    Glad to finally see pictures of this set. Not really interested in the Protectobots that were listed, but here's hoping this wave's not canned.

    Prowl and Soundwave are legit as well...they showed up on the Hasbro Transformers site not too long ago.

    Now, if any of them actually gets released, that's another story entirely. :)

    Both of these. Can't wait for both sets as they're my two favorite teams. Too bad Vortex doesn't appear to be an actual helicopter.

    What mold IS Vortex?

    The Vortex reminds me of Powerglide a bit. I can't see Blast-off very well though.

    I like the custom Longhaul - that is the sort of direction Hasbro should have gone instead of making the other kinds people seem less keen on that the original designs.

    If I'm not mistaken, I think he's a remold of Powerglide. But he appears to have a set of helicopter blades on top of his alt mode. But from the angles given, it's hard to tell.

    Blast Off looks to be a Jetfire repaint. I would've rather they'd used Powerglide because of the faceplates and all.

    Vortex looks like a new mold to me.

    Fingers crossed these get released. I just got the last three-packs in today so that has my Bot Shots appetite running again. I still want to track down an Aerialbot five-pack and the Warpath launcher.

    I dunno... those are ugly and don't really look much like the Combaticons. No face plates for Blast Off and Brawl, and the optic colors are wrong. The only one I like, in fact, is Vortex.

    Wow those actually look really good. Not exactly like their G1 versions, but I can live with it. Especially if Onsalught and Vortex turn out to be all new molds. Now the question is will I actually be able to find this for a good price. Already gave up on warpath for that reason.

    Ironically: I think Onslaught's a Warpath repaint. The heads look exactly the same.

    You might be right. If I squint I can actually see that now. No biggie, still close enough of a resemblance to really care.

    Wonder if this'll be the same helicopter mold they use for Blades. Cause, y'know, missiles and all that.

    Right. And I'll definitely be going over him with some paint. Replace the gold with silver and the red with orange and maybe add some green as well.

    Another nice set of Bot Shots.
    These 5 packs have been the strongest releases from this entire line for me.
