I'm sure there will be comments for and against the figures shown, but can we step back and appreciate one thing first?

Knockout has a freaking FLAIL! The last time I recall a Transformer with a flail weapon, it was MP-05 Megatron.

That Knockout is beastly. He even has a tail!

I, for some reason, really like the looks of Knock Out. I'll never buy it, but it looks really good. Maybe it's because the red is the right shade this time? :-?

Finally you can croc out with your Knock-Out.

Is Animated Swoop before MP-05? :-?

And doesn't Takara's AM Bulkhead have a flail Micron?


Sorry, didn't mean to be rude, just curious!


Knockout and Vertebreak both look like straight repaints with very minor tweaks.
They look pretty, I'll give you that! But not for my shelf.

Grimwing looks cool. His bug-buddy reminds me of the companion bugs that came with Sectaurs.

Ahh, I had forgot about him. I think he came afterwards.

I think that's more of a static weapon, no chains involved (IIRC).

Grimwing looks good and Knock Out's OK, but the other two are just meh.

Although it's nice that Arcee final gets a painted head crest. Possible head swap with her PRiD counterpart??

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I actually am really liking this Croc-Out figure. The gator armor is very appealing. However, getting him would break my rule of only buying Beast Hunter Autobots and Predacons. At this point I really don't think anybody will get an upgrade on the show except for Optimus. I could be (and I hope that I am) wrong, but I have been avoiding the ugly BH versions of the Decepticons. This may be my exception, especially since I love Knockout's character so much. We'll see.

Arcee looks pretty cool too. I like how her crossbow is incorporated into her alt mode. Vertebreak's colors are interesting, but not enough for me to get him since I already have Lazerback.

Grimwing looks great! I can't wait to get him!

Vertebreak is, but Knock Out features some pretty extensive new tooling. New grille pieces, new sides of the hood, new arms/doors, new legs, new rear section of the car, new head (the crest curls back more). Only the connecting parts are the same tooling.

Speaking of Knock Out, looks like he's got more yellow on him this time. Let's hope it stays that way. I'm digging the alterations made to him, like the chomping teeth design on the grille area, and his weapon, and they even made some subtle changes to his legs, They have more ridges and whatnot. AND HIS SHOULDERS ARE RED! I might pick this one up. Maybe.
Arcee we've seen before. I probably won't get her. Vertebreak may just be a Lazerback redeco, but I'll get him because I'm getting all the Predacons.

Come on, this is Hasbro's official product photos we're looking at. The actually figure will probably be brown.:-(

He does look good though. Makes me think of a vehicular Fuzor of Terrorsaur and a crocodile. I wasn't going to get any of the returning characters from RiD, but this one might sneak its way in.

Croc Out is just so utterly ridiculous he's awesome. What's not to love about a car wearing a crocodile skin, complete with a tail that turns into a freaking flail (with a face)!

Knock Out's actually one that i am considering. That of course depends on what the end product will look like. i doubt that it will have half the paint apps.

Arcee shows some much interest this time around. I think I'll be picking her out of this bunch. I thought Knock Out would have gotten painted rims this time around but I guess not. :lol: :VEHI:

Croc Out looks gloriously amazing! :CON:

As for Arcee...quick, someone put a Cybershark head on her! I'm seriously curious how it will look. :lol:

I was JUST wondering when we were going to see Knock Out.

The only other Decepticon, so far, that SHOULD be in a Deluxe mold.

Yep again.

I think it's been long enough since we got beastformers (aside from Grimlock) that we embrace this very colorful, varied line. All we need now is a Megatron.

(And a Ser-Ket. C'mon, Hasbro, it's just a straight redeco!)

Convention exclusive and I quit. Don't even go there, Hasbro. You love redecoes. Get on it and leave Lazerback alone. :-x

Knock Out's weapon must be one of the best flails I have seen! Reminds me of TF Collection's Megatron reissue and MP-05! Vertebreak looks like a tiger to me, and Arcee might be a little too spiky for Jack to ride on?

They're not done with Lazerback yet. What about that "Scourge" retool we saw in the advertisements a few weeks back?

Oh Grimbeak, You are going to make one glorious looking BW Silverbolt repaint.

I'm on the fence about Croc-Out... That head sculpt is just PERFECT, but those green armor pieces...

Knock Out looks beast (no pun intended). But I already wasted $16 on his unsatisfyingly small figure, so it's a pass from me.

After seeing the Croc-Out and Batcee retools, I'm glad I decided to skip out on their original versions. I got FE Arcee, so I'm happy with that. Vertebreak's colors look a lot better on the mold than Lazerback's so I'd rather get him as well. Just hope they tightened up those ankles...

I really hope that come mid-season we'll have the Dinobots on the show. Could imagine one of the 'Bots being cornered by Predaking, only for a robotic T-rex to suddenly stomp him from above. And THAT would be the last scene for that episode!

Croc Out is in that glorious category of "So Ridiculous It's Awesome". He shall be mine.

Vertebreak??! That's probably one of the coolest names ever. Backbreaker but less literal and cliche. I'm a big fan of that mold and some crazy loud colours on it make it a possible purchase if it's ever seen at retail.

@Mkall......didn't Animated Oilslick have a flail? More of a beer barrel on a chain but you get the idea. At least it was on a real(plastic) chain. I think it can be construed as a flail.

BatCee is pretty neat to me. All those goofy ass weapons hanging off her in alt mode are ridiculous but those bat wings are intriguing to me. They should have darkened her blue a little bit more if they're going with the bat motif. Just a touch more of the macabre and i woulda bought her on sight. Little too bright for a bat bike if you ask me.

Are you sure Arcee's motif is a bat? I'm getting more of a fish vibe.

Fish eh? I like that better than a bat. Maybe I didn't look close enough either. But I can bet behind the fish concept.

I was trying all day to figure out what the fish was called, but now I'm home and can actually use Google reasonably well. XD

It looks to me like a lion fish inspired design.
