Seibertron member Primeultimus has posted a photo of Big Bad Toy Store's exclusive Dark Energon Knock Out, in package from BigBadToyStore's facebook page.

We've seen the Powerizers/Voyagers before, but this is the first packaged picture of the Revealers/Deluxe Class.

Dark Energon figures are available for preorder at BBTS right now.

I believe it's Toxitron. Green, purple, skull & crossbones. I'm sold on the homage being that.

It could be a homage to Wasp from transformers animated.

I agree on the Toxitron homage. But I'll be using him as TFP Wreckloose.

He looks like an electric booger.

I thought Toxitron was more of a pea soup green/yellow with purple. And the :CON: and crossbones is the Dark Energon Decepticon faction symbol, as advertised. Likewise, the Autobots are now Autobot Dark Energon Defenders with their own symbol. :-B

Yeah, but how do you get that putrid green coloring with translucent packaging? Either way, I think thing's ugly. It hit every branch on it's way down the ugly tree. Yeesh.

I love the mold, no seriously, I do. I still wouldn't buy this one.

I think you guys are skirting the obvious. This guy is bright green and purple. I'm gonna venture a guess and say his intended homage is to the constructicons.
:BOT:

Toxitron, Constructicons, Wasp(inator), they're all odd choices for Knock Out to homage. You'd think it would be based on Ratchet or some other medic-bot.

It's kinda a touch call since Knock Out has no G1 Counterpart, aside from the unrelated Micromaster:



It couldn't be his repaint Gusher, could it?

Ii think the issue is that as someone already mentioned, he has no obvious prior "counterpart".

That aside, love it; especially the packaging...

So, did anyone notice that the art on the packaging has been modified (asides from the coloration) from the original deluxe's art? Instead of showing him with the saw that he doesn't come with, they actually made him hold the prod that he DOES come with!

Personally, I treat it as Knockout experimenting with the combined effects of Dark Energon (purple) and SynthEn (green)...

I don't need a contrived fiction to explain it. It's a cool toy in cool colors.

Since I'm a sucker for translucent decos and G1 homages... :BANG_HEAD:

Well, Knock Out has prior counterparts; just not in G1. Unless you do count Micromaster Knockout (as I like to).

He had an Armada show appearance and a toy.



Then as a repainted Rollout.



ROTF Knock Out got the comic treatment complete with a toy.



And once more in Speed Stars before Transformers Prime

Which you shouldn't. None them are a red sportscar or a medic, and what's in a name? Would you consider Armada Smokescreen to be a new version of G1 Smokescreen?

Yes, I would. I don't understand, if they don't look the same in every one of their incarnations, they're not worthy of being an earlier incardination?

No, they are not the same character. They're obviously from different continuities. They still have the names of "Knock Out" and "Smokescreen" applied to them.

The word is "incarnation", and no. To me, a name is more than just a monicker, it's part of the character and the traits it should possess. Smokescreen, at least to me. has to be a red and blue race car to qualify, Ratchet has to be an ambulance or medic, Starscream has to be a jet and a schemer, etc.
