Thanks to ACToys we get a closer look at Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Deluxe Wave 2's Smokescreen. This set of images give us a clear look at the figure's head sculpt and Shadow Quill Armor, which appears to be removable. It looks like Smokescreen fans may finally be getting the figure they've been craving since he made his debut last season. Images mirrored below.

Orange light-piping?

Nothing a little paint or Sharpie can't fix...

There's quite a few things on him that a little paint won't fix. I'm still not completely sold on the idea that his armor is removable. I suspect, at least for vehicle mode, that it won't work without it. I don't think there's a front end of a car hiding somewhere under that blue armor.

Well we now can see that the chest is fake as there's a hinge for it to move around.

Thank you Hasbro for cutting corners on the FOC line, so you can waste all that "pricey" plastic on this god awful line of figures that will seriously shelf warm worse than the Bee hives of DOTM. :BANG_HEAD:

guess who will be painted right out of the box? good thing i have clear blue paint. and he needs some red and black and reprolabels.

Welp, I'm sold. I know it's a fake chest and all, but i prefer that to making them less accurate to the show (wish they did that with Knockout). I also look forward to Reprolabels adding a little color to this guy. He looks really spot on other wise :D

It looks like the hood of his car form folds up onto his forearms.

I dunno what you guys are all complaining about, I like the look of this figure, and the fact that he's got removable armor and no crazy ass spikes everywhere.

The door decals aren't spot on, and some of the paint apps are bad, but that sculpt is incredible. Nothing a little paint & Reprolabels can't fix. Muahahhaha.

Now, I'll quote a fellow Seibertronian so I don't have to say it myself.

Looks like there might be a good Smokescreen figure in there if you take the armor off!

You can. They wouldn't give it a name and list it as an accessory if you couldn't. >:oP

Well, I hope the armor is removable. That would be a nice feature. Plus it would prove to me that Hasbro's not only smart, but sneaky. Which would earn them mucho respect in my book.

Either way, though, I still have no regrets about buying the AM Smokescreen. I'll gladly keep it with or without this one.

Won't know that until we find out what kind of head connection this has. If it's a ball joint we should be good.

I'm considering doing it as well. Although, my only worry is that Takara's head is too big, or otherwise oddly proportioned. Or it doesn't transform right with the new head. In any case proving faulty, I'll hope Reprolabels does something about this head.

Going by these pics, and if the armor is removable, I may pick this one up so I can have a Smokescreen on my Prime shelf. If the armor can't be removed, its a No Deal moment.

Re: In-Package Images: Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Deluxe Smokescreen (1453631)
Posted by Gearslide on January 10th, 2013 @ 12:49am CST
So it seems that the main questions for this figure are:

1. Does the armor really come off?
2. Can the head be switched out for Takara's version?
Re: In-Package Images: Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Deluxe Smokescreen (1453635)
Posted by PrymeStriker on January 10th, 2013 @ 1:27am CST
I'm positive the answer to question #1 is yes; otherwise giving the armor a name and putting it on the back of the box's list of accessories doesn't make any sense. What I'm waiting on is an answer to question #2, which won't matter if Reprolabels fixes the problem.

All in all, I'm sold on this fella.

Lazerback and Twinstrike had the same symbol before it got changed on the final product. That was the prototype for the Predacon symbol earlier in the production.


I swear I saw the first symbol on the package in EmGo's review of Lazerback. :-?

EDIT: I checked! It's also on the figure itself! 8-}




But back on topic, I might pick this one up. Still not sure.
I'm sure there's a reviewer out there who is getting ready to solve the armour issue for everyone. (Even though that's not my concern.)

Rampant speculation on my part, but if Screens' BH-Vehicle kibble ends up being removable, I wonder if he was intended as a PRID mold all along?

Makes a nice alternative to the AM one, cheaper too, however I await some out of package and even side-by-side comparison shots before I take the plunge...

Just so we're clear, you meant this symbol is on the figure, right?

If you meant the prototype, then where is it? :???:

We now have a few in-package images of Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Deluxe Wave 2's Bulkhead. This figure will be Bulkheads debut in the Deluxe range, he features a new helmeted head sculpt and a color scheme similar to Roadbuster or perhaps Brawn. We also get another look at "Beast Hunters" Deluxe Starscream from the cross sell. Check out the images mirrored from ACToys below.

Here's Hoping the paint the Blue Dots on his helmet. To me it looks like Those are his eyes and his Visor is a big Goofy Blue grin. And While I'm not too excited about this line other than maybe the Preds themselves and Smokescreen, I might get this one to be a Brawn...

His head reminds me of Cybertron Scattorshot.

This is the official product. They're not going to paint over what they already released, unless there's a variant somewhere down the road.

Courtesy of ACToys we have our first in-hand images, and yes, the Shadow Quill Armor is completely removable leaving a nice clean figure. Smokescreen fans rejoice, and enjoy the images mirrored below.

Smokescreen looks pretty good, but man does he have a lot of missing/wrong paint apps. Oh well, this is Hasbro we're talking about, we're lucky enough to be just getting the figure in the first place. Judging by these pics, I'm pretty sure the armor is removable, which means he's a buy for me.

Bulkhead is a pass because I have the FE one and Bulk's meant to be a voyager. He looks alright though, aside from the smiley face.

Edit: HOLY CRAP, THAT WAS BREAKING NEWS. :shock:

SO BOUGHT. He's got a lot of car kibble on his arms but he still looks good. And even the net is removable from the gun! YYYEEEEEESSSSS. This figure just went from 'looks potentially good' to 'MUST BUY'. :BOWDOWN:

I'm also really glad I didn't buy the AM version when I had the chance.

Is Smokescreen's head on a Ball joint that's the same size as Knock Outs/AM Smokescreen?

That's how he should have looked from the get-go.

I'd buy him, even thought I hate this series. I'd ditch the dumb Road Warrior armor and just leave him plain.
