1) Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, Sundor (from Sun and Condor) and the retool Ratbat
2) Rumble, Frenzy and the retools Eject and Rewind
3) Ravage and possibly Steeljaw
4) Ramhorn


While spelling it Sundor for the reason you stated above makes sense- that's what the original toy was called/spelled- I thought I'd seen in all the official announcements and listings that his toy was spelled Sunder. I could be wrong, though.


I've checked the galleries of the SDCC 2012 event when the toys were on display, but Blaster's buddies were nowhere to be seen. Steeljaw is indeed a retool of Ravage however.

"Sunder" with an "e" was officially used only once: in the Allspark Almanac II. Aside from that... Hey Hasbro, Sun + Condor = Sundor. Simple as that. Or maybe you'll understand this:

サンドル (sandoru) = Sundor

But:

Sunder = サンダー (sandaa) = Thunder :lol:

Sorry about that, I just hate it when a pun is needlessly lost in translation. >:oP
Well, technically, it only makes the Animated character named "Sunder" while the Kiss Players and Aligned characters get the name "Sundor". ;)

Kinda glad these are turning out better than I thought. I originally believed they'd all be as bad as Ratbat. Red and Blue are pretty bleh but Laserbeak and Ravage are particularly nice.
Beast Hunters is coming. Well played Mayans.

The minions are looking pretty good! For what they are anyway. I hope they're reasonably-priced, especially since I only want Ravage and Frenzy.

Sooo... why won't Hasbro release Breakdown, again? >:oP
