Update 1/29

Finally found Reveal the Shield Special Ops Jazz. I will have to say that he is one of my top 5 favorite figures. If Tracks and Jazz are any example of how the Reveal the Shield line will be in the future, its going to be a smash hit. Both figures have awesome transform modes and accessories. They really are a great homage to their G1 figures.

I am very excited for the new Masterpiece Rodimus figure. It will be expensive, but he is my favorite character. I have some new pictures of him below.

The new figures were released at some Target stores, so I hope that I can at least see some of the new ones, maybe pick them up in a few months.

The next group

I finally was able to open my new Thunderwing figure. I like the figure for the look of the robot mode and the idea that another comic character has made an appearance in the toy line. However, I feel that it falls short in the vehicle mode and has a simplistic transformation similar to the other Seekers in the line, such as Starscream. Thunderwing does add to my Decepticon ranks and that always helps, with that being said, I would like to see some more original cartoon Decepticons make appearances in the toy lines.

I am still search for Special Ops Jazz and hope to find him soon. After Jazz comes a large number of new figures that will fit nicely in my collection.

List of the new 2011 figures:
Generations Scourge, Generations Sergeant Kup, Generations Thundercracker, and Generations Wheeljack.
Reveal the Shield Perceptor, Wreck-gar, Windcharger (Scout class), and Solar Storm Grapple (Voyager class).

I am sure these are all the new ones coming out in 2011, but these are the next on the list. After rereading the list, it seems like quite a lot in a short period of time.

Finally able to get two new figures for the start of 2011

Picked up Reveal the Shield Turbo Tracks and Generations Thunderwing. Tracks is an awesome figure honoring the G1 Transformer. Looks real good and a great transformation. I haven't had a chance to open Thunderwing, but I'm hoping for tomorrow.

Still searching for Special Ops Jazz (out currently) and will hopefully begin searching for Reveal the Shield Windcharger (Scout sized figure) and Solar Storm Grapple (Voyager size figure).
