Default Official pics of Generations Ultimate Giftset

This was first revealed about 4 months ago, with some small grainy photos from an Asian product catalogue, so it's good to finally have some decent pics to see what these four toys will look like (DLX Gen2-mould Optimus, DLX Jazz, Legends Thundercracker, Legends Motormaster)

The inspiration/theme for the Deluxe pair are uncertain. Jazz has a bit of a Gen2 look to him, but has a Gen1 Autobot symbol... while Optimus is all blue (like the pre-TFs Diaclone toy), but has both Gen1 AND Gen2 Autobot symbols on him.

I guess if there is a story on the back of the box, it may shed some light on these.

It is slated as a 4th-quarter release, at Walmart... but BBTS appear to be getting some in.

Those deluxes look great. I like the fine circuit paint on Combat Hero Prime and G2 Jazz has enough paint apps for 3 normal figures (pity Generations Jazz got so little paint ). And the colours, while bold are not glaring and do kind of, look good together.

Unlikely BUT maybe Jazz has the G2 logo on the sides of his wrists like CH Prime does? I say this because the G1 logo is in the same (robot) position so the G2 position could be the same? Adding to that unlikely theory is that Jazz has a mountain of pain, even his rear lower bumper appears to has his name on it.. so add just a little more to make it look like a giftset that is grouped like G1 Decepticon legends v G2ish Autobot deluxes.

ONly Jazz interests me in that set. Not that we'll ever see it here anyways . BUt yeah, those color combinations actually blend well and isn't in your face glaring as was a G2 tradition in colour scheme

Both DX repaints are appealing. It's a good thing that they didnt pair up one super desirable repaint with some other mould that wasn't doing so well. I don't collect Legends, but those two GDO exclusives was a nice touch - they could have easily both been Bumblebees

New pics of the boxed set via Hasbro Toy Shop's website

What's the chance of us getting this here?
I missed out on the original BBTS pre-order

They've reopened the preorder twice already, and it's open right now as of posting.

I ordered 3... for now. :/ Unless anyone wants to split a pack and sell me another Jazz?
