Generations Hoist Image Reveals Robot and Vehicle Modes with Tow Winch

Seems like whenever Generations line re-started, I'm fully satisfied. Hasbro previously announced the continuation of the line with Metroplex, Blitzwing, Springer, Orion Pax and Trailcutter

The Titan

TFC SR-71 Blackbird & X-47 Phantom Ray [Project Uranos] - Pictorial Review

Been waiting for quite sometime for him considering that he's going to be the last new mold of Project Uranos (the last 2 are re-tooled of the the first 2 figures). But came across few hick-up with the supplier which resulted in a short delay.

Created alongside with his comrades of Aerialbots, Silverbolt is the commander of the air team that act as a counter-measure for Decepticons' Stunticons. Built from a low-flying cargo transport vessel, Silverbolt face with an uncanny weakness, height which is laughable considering his role. He fight against it, overcoming his fear and become a great commander leading his strike team

His first toy in the 80's is proven to be having (at least proportional and) a great design, especially when comparing him with other Gestalts Commander

In 2008, Hasbro surprised fans with the release of Universe 2.0 Ultra Class Silverbolt with a mold that worthy of the name. It's a shame though him and Onslaught (and Hotspot, in 2012) were released as a non-combiner robot

1st quarter of 2013

In a blink of an eye, 3 months of 2013 has passed, didn't even realize it. Aside of marriage stuff, collection wise, been narrowing down in terms of 3rd party release and focusing more on the leftovers of Henkei/United to complete all the molds.

These (and a few more) are the ones from this pass couple of months

not in pic : United Warpath, United Stepper, Henkei Astrotrain

A good start, won't you say?
