Courtesy of a TaoBao auction we have in-package images of Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Deluxe Wave 2's Bulkhead and Smokescreen. That's right folks, Hasbro is releasing a Deluxe Class Smokescreen! It appears we may even be able to remove his spiky "Beast Hunters" armor for a more traditional looking vehicle, we need to see some in-hand images to know for sure. Bulkhead is also making his debut in the Deluxe Class featuring Roadbuster inspired new paint job. Check out the images mirrored below.

Smokescreen looks fantastic! Im hoping the armour is removable but its not super exagerated so he may be okay with it left on. That Bulkhead just screams Brawn to me, not so much Roadbuster.
I do notice though that Smoke is number 008, and Bulk is 007, and if Ripclaw is 005, that means we still have one BH Deluxe wave 2 006 figure unaccounted for... my money's on a spiky Knockout or Arcee

Bulkhead actually looks pretty good! I didn't think they'd be able to pull him off in Deluxe form when I clicked on this story. Nice homage too! His size doesn't really allow him to be Bulkhead, but for what he is I think he looks really cool. I wonder if his deco will actually change in the new season?

I don't really like how Smokescreen looks, but I'll give him a chance and not pass judgment before some better pics show him off.

Ripclaw is number 006, so who's number 005? :???:

Looking good so far, but I'm skipping them, unless we actually see the armor in the show.

I may be wrong but it looks like the chest parts with the lights are from the car, but then the middle part and the piece underneath are a separate panel...so it might be a 'half' fake chest XD

Who would've ever thought Takara would be the ones to cheap out and give us a repaint (I say repaint, theres hardly any paint on the thing)...
And yeah i noticed the blue sigil as well but it looks kinda nice XD Im kind of getting a Fast Action Battlers vibe from these two though :L ...

Hmph.

Oh well...it's a new mold nonetheless. I'm surprised. >:oP

Wait...the armor comes OFF!??!?!



HASBRO WON! SUCK IT, TAKARA! HAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!! :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK:


Sorry. :oops:

Now...all he needs a few changes in that color scheme; mostly the knee caps and head. That's where you come in, reprolabels. The question remains, who's #5? If Ripclaw's #6, Smokescreen's #8, and Bulkhead's #7, who's #5!? At least this means we're getting larger waves than last time. :APPLAUSE:

Definately not interested in anything Beast Wars/Beast Machines/Beast Hunters or whatever Hasbro wants to call this rehash this time, but that Bulkhead doesnt say Roadbuster but screams Brawn in my opinion, so a head swap and he could possibly be a Classics Brawn stand-in?

Comments seem keen on Smokescreen, but I thought we where getting a Knockout repaint as Smokescreen, not this beastly thing? :???:

Smokescreen looks like his armor is all detachable. That makes him a win. Bulkhead looks interesting. It isn't something I need but I'm tempted. The Animated chest is a cool nod.

Just noticed the dragon face on Bulkhead's saw XD Bulk looks like he may have a visor as well. I also laughed when I saw that Hasblow has left Smokescreen's kneecap whole entire shin facing sideways in the official pic :APPLAUSE:

this news would show up the day before my Takara Smokescreen is expected to arrive. still I also hope the armor is removable. at least it will make a nice comparison for review time

I really don't know why people are pissing all over the TakaraTomy Smokescreen. He works really well. (In person's much better than pics.)

If the armor comes off of this one, then he might be a must buy on my list. Might. If it doesn't, then he's a definite pass and I'll gladly stick with the AM version I have.

If the armor comes off and it's a straight forward Smokescreen figure, well then, Hasbro, I'm impressed with your sneakiness. Very. I'm still not a big fan of the figure, however. That fake chest looks terribly fake. (Fakes are fine when they're done right. This one screams "I'm not real") Plus, from what I can tell, he does not have his door wings. The AM, once the Micron is attached, has wings.

I'll have to see more before I make a decision, but uh...as of now, AM Smokescreen is fine with me.

It looks like has some sort of wings in the package. I'm fairly impressed. If the armor comes off, it will be a purchase. I also hope his alt mode isn't further shrunken from the PRiD line...

Bulkhead looks pretty cool but I don't need any more Bulkheads, and I certainly don't need one in deluxe class.

Bulk's deluxe size now? Oh how the mighty have fallen!

Nice that there's actually a Smokescreen on the way, just wish it was before this Beast Hunters stuff started. If the spikey stuff is removable great, but I wouldn't count on it.

Wouldn´t mind getting a spiky Nockout, but I really hope 005 is a new beast.
I love the Smokescreen, but Bulkhead is an easy pass for me.
So far Beast Hunters seems like an awesome line.

im glad theres a new mould of this guy as i already have knockout. think smokescreen's the only major character i have left to get. not keen on the animals but i might stump up for leader class predaking.

wonder if we'll see a prime shockwave

I think I like AM Smokescreen better than this one.

Bulkhead shouldn't be a Deluxe, but I like the mold and the paint scheme so I might get it and just consider it a Roadbuster.
Re: In-Package Images: Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Deluxe Wave 2 Smokescreen and Bulkhead (1452393)
Posted by PrymeStriker on January 6th, 2013 @ 2:14pm CST
I might buy the AM version if this Smokescreen is capable of doing a head-swap. Otherwise, I'll wait for the possible Reprolabels set. Some of the colors are atrocious.

kirbenvost wrote:It looks like has some sort of wings in the package.


It's the doors. You can see some of the red in the same place on the vehicle mode's doors. One reason this version is superior; door wings instead of micron wings.

If the armor has removable capabilities, this may be the only Beast Hunters figure I get. If not, oh well, better luck next time, Hasbro. >:oP

Seeing as how SS has the removable BH armor, the only issue I have with him is the blue details on his head. Hasbro simply used the wrong colors. The crest should have been white and the eyebrows and beard should have been red (which is used on the figure's knees and elbows). I don't get the reasoning.

And that Bulkhead shall take his rightful place on my shelf as a Prime Brawn (seeing as how his GDO figure died before production).

A proper Smokescreen? I knew Hasbro was getting back on the ball with Beast Hunters!!!!
THANK YOU HASBRO!!!!

Shame Bulkhead isn't a voyager, thought it's better than just having a cyberverse figure. I really like his buzzsaw as well.

Bulkhead has monkey arms.

Smokescreen doesn't look that bad. Better if the armor comes off.

If and I mean IF Smokescreens armour does come off. It smells to me that Hasbro had this guy read for the last waves of RID, but just held him back and added some clip on armor so he would fit in aesthetically with the rest of the BH line.

I'm not sure which Smokescreen you're talking about, but:

He clearly has a white crest (the middle thing), red "eyebrows" (the things to the left and right of his crest), and a red "beard".

All three of those things are blue on the toy.

From what I understand about the term "crest" or "comb", it just refers to the central part. You couldn't say the feathers on the left and right of a Cockatiel's crest are part of the crest, would you?

Yes, but these red parts are not detached from the crest. They extend backward from it. My point is they aren't eyebrows; they don't move depending on expression.

Well I do think it would be awkward seeing BH being a deluxe, but it does homage Brawn more than Roadbuster. I mean, look at this:

Oh, wait...they both resemble him. ;)

And SS does look nice as well, so good job Takara and Hasbro, you just made yourself a more decent mold.

I think what Gearslide is talking about are the two very thin lines above his eyes, which have a vague red tinge to them.

The figure in the photo seems to have inverted the colouring, with the crest left white, and the side crest bits coloured (albeit in blue). Fixable.

Mmm. Okay.

Well, if Reprolabels makes a set for this (which he desperately needs), not only would I like stickers to fix some of his atrocious paint, but also include some Elite Guard insignias. Maybe even take the extra step to include stickers that turn him into his Cybertronian scheme entirely!

I don't know how I could thank Hasbro enough for giving him his own mold. :KREMZEEK:

Don't bother. No middle man i know ships tabao orders to the us. Shipping to singapore alone is actually rather costly. If you somehow mannage to get this into the us, i assue you it would take over 2 months and cost around $50usd for both. I'll just wait. :P

Okay, colour me impressed... BH does look pretty awesome, but I'll pass as I've got the PRID Voyager. SS is 100% buy - his flaws are nothing that clippers and paint/labels can't fix.

I really wonder though, the more I see these Beast Hunters figures, if this isn't just a gimmick that is toyline only (ala Mechtech)... I'm not doubting that we'll see Predaking and *possibly* some other Predacons in-show, but I'll be really suprised if the Autobot cast gets a "Mad Max Makeover", let alone all their fancy beast-hunting weapons for a shorter season. From the preview of Season 3, it looks like Predaking is the "Autobot Hunter" and not the other way around... I guess time will tell though!

Regardless... I don't see myself picking up any cast members from the BH line that I have from FE or PRID, but since Smokescreen doesn't fit in to either of those categories I will buy him even if the armour is permanent!

Thank GOD Smokescreen gets a new mold and isn't just a repaint of Knockout. I hope that armor is removable like others have said. I can also see myself turning that net gun into a regular blaster but removing the web parts. Bulkhead looks freaking awesome. I'm glad there's gonna be a deluxe version of him.
