The-Arker is the first to acquire boxed Revenge of the Fallen Voyager Mindwipe and Defender Optimus Prime. Images were taken of their packaging, showing off their face-art, stats and biographies. An unexpected rivalry between the two figures is established by the N.E.S.T. Global Alliance. Check out each figure's information below.

Voyager Mindwipe
With the power to mesmerize other robots, Mindwipe might be a match even for Optimus Prime. The Matrix of Leadership renders the Autobot leader immune, but Mindwipe has a host of other robots totally under his control. He stays safely in the air, while Optimus Prime struggles against a horde of hypnotized minions.

Voyager Defender Optimus Prime
Since the battle in Egypt, Optimus Prime has outfitted himself with the gear he needs to take out airborne opponents. Unfortunately, Mindwipe attacks on two fronts, taking cheap shots at the Autobt from from the air, while his hypnotized flunkies assualt him on the ground. Optimus Prime struggles desperately, searching for a way to take out Mindwipe without harming any of the innocents he's brainwashed.

They really need to stop repainting that voyager Prime.

It's getting ridiculous. :roll:

The toy's head reminds me more of Tigerhawk (then again, the Tigerhawk toy was redecoed into a Razorclaw character, so... yeah). :-B

:-P

Anyway, that's a pretty cool paired bio. I can't wait for Mindwipe to throw down with Stratosphere. Giant gangly robot jets beating the tar out of one another for the win.

I do like Mindwipe. Will pick it up if it comes over here.

I actually like his artwork. In fact, he and other toy characters from the movie lines look a lot cooler than the bots we get in the films. In ROTF, we got Demolisher, the Twins, Wheelie and Jetfire in the forefront while the cool ones like Sideswipe and Soundwave are pretty much background characters.

When I look at Mindwipe, Wreckage, Divebomb and Dirtboss, I wish they were characters in the movies. A lot of the toy only charcters look much better than the movie bots.

I even prefer Payload and Swindle.

But yes, will definitely pick up Mindwipe.

Also agree with the Prime repaint issue. At least give us Ultra Magnus and Nemesis Prime.

Bumblebee could give us Glyph, Tap Out, Wasp and High Beam.

Damn...looks like they ran outta red plastic to make another Prime repaint. At least paint him in green or orange so it will be something different...

Im lovin Mindwipe though...

I love the G1 Mindwipe, and I already love this ROTF version as well - I think he is one of the best movie-inspired Jet bots; definitely being cooler-looking than Starscream and Jetfire.

Though I'm a bit disappointed with the bio - there should be an explanation for those cybertronian symbols on his wings! I'm expecting something like, those symbols are the marks of the dead Decepticons' ghosts, or maybe the names of the Autobots he killed and sacrificed for those said ghosts. That'll make him something like a psychopathic serial killer who kills other robots for his own twisted beliefs, following the voices of those 'ghosts' he heard inside his head. That'll make him much more terrifying, while connects his personality with his G1 namesake.

That Prime should be cancelled, and no one will care.

MindWipe is Superior!!! :twisted: :twisted:

Would like to see Skystalker dock or combine with Mindwipe and also find out what the both of them have in common with their bio's



Defender Prime is Inferior

I wasn't even aware Mindwipe was a Voyager...I kept thinking he was just gonna be a Deluxe.

Prime looks cool, I like the gray and blue.

Its good Mold and I'd probably like to pick up a second version of it (already have First Strike Prime). But the amount of repaints is getting ridiculous. This is about the 5th repaint of this guy.

Not like Deluxe BB which is already beyond ridiculous, with repaints, retools, remolds and head changes.


Mindwipe pure awesome.
