Generations Leader Jetfire is looking slick as heck

And then from upon high, he descended towards them, glistening white and exemplifying power and grace.

In-hand photographs of Generations Leader Jetfire surfaced today and they make this toy look REALLY GREAT!!!  The chrome is still pretty un-necessary but we can give it a pass.  The non-armored mode is SCREAMING G1 Skyfire!  So good!  Check out some comparison shots below, or see the rest at TFW.

ROTF powered-up Optimus Prime finally gets his day, albeit 3rd party style

Fans Want It Powered up Optimus Prime

Tubby-no-more!

Collecticon.org begrudgingly reports on 3rd party non-Hasbro non-Takara items, but today there was an announcement for one that kind of deserves some praise.  Back at the transitional period between Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon, TakaraTomy teased an amazing looking group of figures under a line named “Unite for the Universe.”  Two major figures were promised but never saw the light of day: a nice silver -painted voyager Megatron, and power up armor attachments for voyager Optimus Prime.

The power up armor looked so good, and so close to the movie representation, that of course it was cancelled, never to be seen on store shelves.   A few years later, we have a leader-sized rendition of the same upgrade kit by Fans Want It.  The ever-revealing Planet Iacon Singapore Facebook Group broke the news, as they typically do, and showed us the first images of the set.  It brought more tears to my eyes than the actual ROTF film, yet this time tears of joy.

So now in my glee, I present a smattering of all the renditions of Upgrade or Jetwing Optimus from the movie-verse up till now.  Enjoy!

War For Cybertron character recap

A lot has happened since my last post. Two more characters for War for Cybertron were revealed yesterday, Autobot Warpath and Decepticon Barricade.  This is beefing up the roster quite a bit, although we already knew about Warpath (we just hadn’t seen his pretty face yet).  Barricade is another cross-generational character jumping into G1 canon from the controversial movie-verse just like Demolisher from Armada.

So I think it’s time for a little recap of the cast thus far.

Transformers War For Cybertron Autobots roster

What a fine looking group of individuals

Autobots

  • Optimus Prime
  • Bumblebee
  • Ratchet
  • Ironhide
  • Warpath
  • Air Raid
  • Silverbolt
  • Jetfire
  • Jazz
  • Omega Supreme
Transformers War for Cybertron Decepticon roster thus far

Yeah, my money is probably going on these guys to win the war, err, game.

Decepticons

  • Megatron
  • Starscream
  • Skywarp
  • Thundercracker
  • Soundwave
  • Breakdown
  • Barricade
  • Shockwave
  • Demolisher
  • Trypticon

Exciting, exciting! If you look at the roster images above, you can see that a few characters are from the same body model – Starscream and Skywarp are the same, Ironhide and Ratchet share the same vehicle mode, and Barricade and Breakdown are in the same stance and could possible share the same model as well. There are many similarities, including their stance.

Warpath and all of the exclusive pre-order characters have complete unique stylings which is great to see. We can all expect to get a nice smattering of character designs this Summer.

So who wants to make some more predictions on characters we will see? I already guessed Lockdown, so it’s time to make some more guesses!

– I’m going to guess we’ll see Cliffjumper on the body style of Bumblebee.

– Super special unlockable Nemesis Version of Optimus Prime in black

– I still think we are going to see Onslaught as a Decepticon.
Feel free to share your own guesses by leaving a comment!

War For Cybertron Jetfire revealed

Transformers War For Cybertron Jetfire screen capture

"Jetfire's mah name!"

Italian gamer site multiplayer.it has hosted a plethora of new images from War For Cybertron featuring some new characters and some pretty cool armaments for our favorite bots. Included in the photos are images of Optimus and Bumblebee brandishing some new melee weapons and a great shot of Starscream.

Transformers War For Cybertron Starscream

In this game, Megatron apparently transformers into a club instead of a gun for Starscream to hold.

And once again, the mystery Decepticon appears again. So far, we have pretty much just concluded that this is Onslaught but there is no confirmation yet.

Transformers War for Cybertron Onslaught?

Onslaught, is that you?

Anyway, feast your eyes and check out the full gallery at multiplayer.it.
