Seibertron.com has posted up links to Jazz, Brawl, Wreckage (?!), and Barricade with Frenzy in their packages. Nice, clear ones, too.


For your viewing pleasure...

Ooooh, I'm really likin' the figs, I got to say, 'specially Jazz. Not kerazy about Brawl, he's a bit too spindly, but the two cars especially are a lot more chunky that I expected. Nice.

From the look of Wreckage, the non-movie characters are looking pretty interesting too.

I like Jazz, but not the bunnny rabbit ears. http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=111306 Seriously, what happened? Bah! I'll probably get the fast action whatever dohickey dealy version. The ears look a bit more subdued on that one . . .

I actually like the look of these. I was convinced the movie would be the end of my TF collecting days but I guess not. There goes my bank balance!

Wow!

:eek:

They all look so great!

It's very interesting to see a Transformer figure designed in the style of the movie, but not appearing in it. I wonder how many we are likely to get?

Barricade, Jazz, Brawl - all musts!

Bumblebee will no doubt fall into the same category. I really want to see more of Skorpy - he looks, erm, interesting...

:p

I thought the Classics line was gonna kick ass but man!!!!
These movie figures are the epitome of Transforming awesomeness!!!!
The "ears" on jazz make him look like a demonic moth :P

Very, very nice. Slurpingly desirable, actually.

But the close-ups of the faces shown on the packaging... They remind me of something. Lawks! I must be getting old, because I can't remember what. It's gonna haunt me until I find out. They are very manga masks, but dunno... Something from a sci-fantasy movie like Krull? Hints of LOTR?

Brawl, I'm sorry, but I've found someone else.

His name is Wreckage.

Please don't take this the wrong way. You rock. No really, you do. But this guy just sweeps me off my feet.

Can't we just be close friends? You can still see the kids on the weekends.

Is it just me, or did Wreckage steal Megatron's head? At least it looks that way from the robot mode pic on the back.

That would explain why Megs got stuck with such a lousy substitute.

Looking good. Jazz is a must, he looks pretty darn chunky. But I'm confused....whats this 'Automorph tech?' Does it just mean they transform or is it a push button gimmick? It makes them sound like Power Rangers.

'Its Automorphing time!'

im just wondering... and maybe its me, but why is it

Autobot Jazz and Decepticon Brawl??? is their orientation part of their name or is this a clue to the possible changing of sides to include a Decepticon Jazz and Autobot Brawl???

maybe it's just that it's late and im reading into this too much

also... why do only some have the automorph on the package?

Autobot Jazz, Decepticon Brawl, etc. are due to Copyright reasons.* I doubt they're going to be traitors.

Automorph means that when you transform one part, another transforms automatically.

I'll probably get those toys, but what the hell is up with those bat ears on Jazz?

Why, fancy Tahu posting a bare-faced lie like that. If there was a lawyer around right now, he'd be dead...

Toys based on the Jazz character have been named "Autobot Jazz" for at least four years straight now. Have you ever seen the reissue? Have you seen toys named "Autobot Ratchet", "Autobot Tracks", "Battle Ravage", "Constructicon Devastator" or similar lately? That's because one word everyday term names such as "Jazz", "Tracks", "Ravage" etc. are difficult to defend as trademarks in court these days. They're too generic. Everyone could call a toy "Jazz" and Hasbro likely couldn't do anyting about it. It's like calling a toy "Robot". So Hasbro call their toy "Autobot Jazz", because THAT name nobody can take away from them easily. Same for "Autobot Ratchet", "Decepticon Brawl" and "Decepticon Frenzy".

It's difficult to trademark dictionary words and make it stick (plus there's a good chance someone already has one in the toys area) so they get prefixed.

He is, to anyone except for the show animators who didn't read their own production notes.
