First look at TF: RotF Knock Out, in-package

Postby Nekoman » Thu Jan 01, 2009 1:49 pm

Motto: "Think for yourself, and think hard."
Weapon: Star Saber Sword
TF Club reveals a few new images of the upcoming Knock Out figure from the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen toy line. Just after first seeing Roll Bar in-package a few days ago, we may now see Knock Out and his bio here.

And for you’re reading convenience, his bio may also be read below:

"Though he is an incredibly flashy and skilled fighter, KNOCK OUT is also desperately insecure. He practices awesome combat maneuvers constantly in private to be sure that the other AUTOBOTS will notice him on the battlefield. His highest ambition is to be the leader of a special combat team, and to get the combination retrofit everyone has been talking about."

I agree.

This will be a pass, though. This is one of those times where the mold is fairly solid, but the deco is craptacular. This is why I passed on Armada Tidal Wave, and got his Energon repaint instead.

My vote for the HOF goes to my favorite Transformer, Kup, to the Headmasters (who still need new figures that aren't just the characters without their master components) and to seibertron.com for for being the ultimate TF resource.

Yea, he would be better that way. It kind of reminds me of Energon Arcee, a mold which could have easily been improved yet they slacked off on.

Pottermus_Prime wrote:he looks more like a con than a bot

Agreed.

Also of mention, though is the combination retrofit he is trying to get that everyone is talking about. He's completely the wrong colour but perhaps the first form of an Arcee motorbike bot? Perhaps they're 3 individual robots that combine to make Arcee or just one is Arcee but Knock Out starts off not so great and then gets slightly reformatted into one of the Arcee bikes? Taking from his bio, it sounds highly likely.

The mention of the Combination retrofit is very interesting. Also, the side of the package has that "hieroglyph" on it...another interesting tidbit I think. I like this fig too,,,maybe the best motorcycle-former I've seen.

That bottom green band looks very washy in the photos. The version I have is much, much darker and richer - and looks much better for it.

He minds me of the "Cool Rider" from Greese 2.

Now by "special combat team" they seem to mean Generation 1's "Special Teams"!?!! More combiner teams? Is combiner the theme for this toy line? It's Superlink the movie!

Postby Autobot Snake Eyes » Thu Jan 01, 2009 4:06 pm

he looks pretty cool, but what really gets me is the "Combat Retrofit" mentioned in the bio. we pretty much know that the cons will have combining bots in the next movie, bu is this hinting at autobot combiners?

Im starting to think that the final battle being set in egypt is hinting at Egyptian subplot like thousands of years ago, some tfs visited earth and met the Egyptians. And like, the people of egypt like, learned the cybertronian language and such. I dont know, maybe...

I find that trademarked red graphic interesting (the one shown on a side of the package and the top right corner of the cardboard back face.) It's in both packages we've seen lately and it seems to be important enough to the story to include it in packages along the faction logo.

Primus I hope not. That's one of the reasons Superlink sucked, it took the previous 'special' concept of combination and turned it into a cheap parlor trick nearly every Bot could do. A Prime/Jetfire combination and the Arcee thing is fine, but it looses its charm when every-slagging-one can do it.

Got him, but his slagging side panels fall off when you breath on them! Did i just get a poor figure?
Couldn't they have secured the leg-panels so they'd just turn during transformation?
I'm very upset that every time i transform him the panels fall off.

A very simple fix could've made this figure much better.
Then again, mine could have just been a glitch. anybody else run into this problem?
