Packaging Error Reveals Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Deluxe Wave 2 Ripclaw

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Meet the latest Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Deluxe, Ripclaw! The Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Deluxe Wave 2 figure has been inadvertently revealed thanks to a packaging error from Deluxe Wave 1's Soundwave. Not only do we get a look at this brand new mold in both robot and dragon modes, we also get a clear look at her bio. That's right, Ripclaw is a female character who will be joining the Predacon ranks along with Predaking and Lazerback. Check out the card back courtesy of Yobuster.

Unquestionably loyal to the Predacon cause, RIPCLAW crushes her enemies and leaves their circuits burning with her mech-venom!

Silly question, I take it S'Wave was packed on the Ripclaw card?

Nice to see some balance with female characters appearing. I still want to see these in the "flesh" tho'....

More fembots are always a good thing. More fembots that don't fit the typical supermodel build are even better.


I do hope there are more than just dragons in the Predacon ranks.

Not a fan of the standard beast transformation but at least the dragon neck splits to become her shoulder plates. Not sure where the dragon head goes though.
Beast Hunters is coming. Well played Mayans.

She looks like a pretty solid mold, much better than the last Fembot, however that's another subject for another time. Anyhow hope to get her when she comes out, and hopefully wont be short packed.

Thats actually pretty cool, although I'm not digging the flattened heads of the predacons... and I feel this figure is going to have some ugly back kibble, but still, for now it looks cool enough that I might pick up. I like the porpotions in both modes.

Yup. Just him swooping down against Mr. Grimlock. Nothing epic or anything. Image

So excited. I hope this means, since Ripclaw really should be repainted into him, that Ser-Ket will be among the Predacons that actually show up in season three. :DANCE: :KREMZEEK:

Crud, I now have to buy two of Soundwave so I have one MIB since it's a packaging variant. I really like how Ripclaw looks, it has the potential to be a cool toy.

Very nice! Now TOMY needs to consider making an "Arms Micron" version of Dragstrip. Preferably a PRIME version of the ANIMATED/Timelines character. :-?
