On topic, Cyclonus looks amazing, but all that white-ish plastic makes him look unfinished.

Now THERE we go. Cheetor looks MUCH better. He went from Star Wars Transformers-quality to Cybertron right there.

Cheetor's arms look really spindly and weird in the initial tests shots.

In these newer ones they look buffer.

That Brawn figure looks pretty good too. I wonder how much it'll cost?

I meant he's not a gun like over-run, coz no one could hold him. If safeguard did have a handle...

I like the new shots. They seem more accurate to what the real colors will look like. Cyclonus: Must have and sweet looking. Hound: Must have and WAY better photos this time around. Starscream: Already have Classics, might have to pass, looks too white. Cheetor: Might actually have to think about this one, the new photos looks MUCH better than the others.

I still don't like the green on Hound... still seems way too bright. And those comedy tyres still look like, well, comedy tyres. Ravage looks a bit... snapped as well - maybe they're meant to be posed so Hound's stamping on his spine?

Still going to buy, though.

This wave looks like it has more in common with Classics 1.0 than 2.0. That's just the impression I get. They look like they went with a simpler Transformation that is more solidly engineered (like Bumblebee, Prime) rather than a little overly complex and fidgety (Ironhide, Galvatron, Sunstreaker, Prowl).

Hopefully that is the case.

New official stock photos including packaging for Cyclonus, Hound and Cheetor.

Currently only with ugly TFormers watermarks. Let's hope TFW2005 get watermark-free versions soon.

I hope that's the case too. Not that I don't like Uni/Cla 2.0, I like them very much, but I think they're much more complicated than Classics 1.0. Simpler transformations with solid figures is what I like.

Cheetor now at least looks better than previous pictures have done. Still, why not have a tail gun instead of that... whatever his tail is supposed to be there. The battle discs will likely go to the same place Animated Prowl's traffic light went. (in a drawer, unlikely to see the light of day again) I want Cyclonus yesterday, now.

It's a Legends Class figure so probably ~$5-7, depending on how much they charge for legends in your area.

Sadly, Legends are becoming pricy...

In package, ravage's spine seems to be 'straighter', for lack of a better word. Maybe there's a joint somewhere? I doubt it's meant to be stamped on. (btw, great idea).
