Shockwave FTW (you're going into my sig too)

That's a very G2 looking Bruticus there. Definitely a prototype. The interview with designer Lenny Panzica was an interesting read but he doesn't really explain why the decision was made to make Onslaught a deluxe toy as well.

And that'd be Jazz right? It looks like it could kind of be Breakdown too.

It does look a bit like Breakdown but it's Jazz. Lots more pics of Generations figures at TFW and here

Unfortunately Optimus was always going to look terrible based on his FoC design.

Shockwave looks really good. Better than expected but need clearer pics.

Prime looks very mediocre (prefer the WFC release, hate the 'beer gut')

Jazz looks pretty good.

Bruticus - This is now definitely a 'Wait for a Japanese version' category.

Damn Hasbro and their stupid colors...

Agreed. Shockwave looks fantastic. I reckon he would even work with the Classics shelf.

He would since Shockwave technically always had a 'cybertronian' mode.

Shockwave looks awesome.

Bruticus looks surprisingly big. Not keen on the prototype colours and really hope they find a way to mount the guns on his back for that traditional 'Bruticus can shoot the sky' look, but he's looking to be a must-have.

TFW has posted official pics:

http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-...images-174380/

Keep in mind that some pics appear to suffer from bad photography. In some the angles are off making the upper body look too big (like Jazz) which is not apparent from the Toy fair pics. At least Prime looks better there but it may be an illusion.

I am not liking the 'old man' Jazz face. It looks to be sculpted by the same genius that gave us that awful Generations Kup head - Hopefully the 3rd parties will fix that up.

Love the news that the Combaticons are all in one wave. Should make getting the set a breeze (unless they make it a case of 8 not 10).

That photo makes him look really bad. The toyfair pics look even worse. I get what they were trying to do with the face sculpt, but that much detail in a small space makes it look like he suffered an allergic reaction, or you know, "how do you get that much cellulite on your face?".

Awesome, I'll buy ten.

From the toyfair pics, Shockwave looks really good, no complaints. Great silhouette too.

Not really digging Optimus, or Bruticus.
