    Wait... weren't these gonna be Zellers exclusives?

    I'm trying to remember what was said at TFCon - Hasbro Canada DID confirm them IIRC.

    i'm pretty sold on the "Aerial Rivals" set. not so much the Leaders but thats probably cause i have those molds and none of the repaints are that exciting. The Thrust and Ramjet are pure win though.

    Why must there be one mold in each pack that I have already and don't want again? Ah well, if they show up this side of the pond I'll buy them.

    Do we have names on these guys?

    I can sort of guess the "team leaders," but as for the Aerial Rivals, I can't tell which characters' color schemes were (slapped on legends figures that look nothing like them) er... I mean..chosen as homages.

    NM, Answered my own question:


    The Special Team Leaders pack contains Razorclaw, Scattorshot, Silverbolt, Hun-Gurrrr, and Autobot Hot Zone (formerly Hot Spot).

    The Aerial Rivals pack contains Autobot Blades, Air Raid, Skydive, Thrust, and Ramjet.

    Both are mine. Oh yeah! Hopefully my Zellers stops sucking long enough to get these in.

    Can anyone tell me who the ariel rival characters are?

    I know that the two SS moulds are Ramjet and Thrust, and the Evac is Blades. Who are the others?

    Jetfire is repainted as Air Raid, but using Skydive's G2 colors.

    Soundwave is repainted as Skydive, but using Air Raid's G2 Cyberjet colors.

    Yeah...I know :/

    They are all repaints, and not the first for those molds.
