Seibertron member Powered Convoy dropped by to let us know that the Allspark's facebook page has shared a nice in-hand gallery of Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Deluxe Wave 1. This wave features Bumblebee, Wheeljack, Soundwave, and Lazerback. Bumblebee, Wheeljack, and Soundwave are redeco/extensive remolds of their "Robots is Disguise" incarnations. Soundwave has the added benefit of coming packed with Ravage. Another interesting feature is the swirl effect used in Bumblebee and Wheeljack's plastic. Lazerback rounds out the wave as the only all new mold. We've mirrored the images below for those without facebook access.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but that Cenobite Bumblebee is kind of doing it for me.

If I'm getting any of these, it'll be Lazerback. The others really don't do it for me. Hope they don't look like that in the show, too...

You know, I might actually get into these Beast Hunters stuff.

The Mad Max makeover looks good on Bee--the spikes kind of distracts the eye from that flap behind his head. New head sculpt's kinda meh, and those swirls on his alt mode's roof makes it look like a bar of soap, though.

Not a fan of Soundwave's new colors, but I like Ravage. Mold-wise, if his previous UAV drone mode was good, it's made even better by the added greeblies on his wings. But again, not a fan of the new, brighter colors.

WJ's looking good, except for the carrot-red blades and green spikes, but that's nothing a can of silver spray can't fix.

Might get Soundwave for Ravage. The rest I can miss.

I'm sure the swirls on his roof is just improperly mixed plastic.

It's clear plastic painted that way. It's meant to look burned/damaged just like Wheeljack's hood with its gray/charred look. I wish they'd done that over their entire alt modes or not at all. Having just certain parts looking like that looks way off.

Still, I'm keeping my preorders for the entire wave. They look too nifty to miss.

I don't think it was ever more than a QC thing. The action on my Terrorcon Bumblebee works beautifully.

I'm still working on finishing PRID, I can't believe these are on the Horizon already!

That said, Lazerback looks like a Playskool gobot in comparison to the rest and although the redesigns don't look too shabby, at current prices they are only retail purchases for me :(

So we've got more plastic and paint... For the same buck? That'd be nice.

Soundwave is diminished. Makes no sense to paint bright colors on a spy drone! lol
It's nice to get Ravage though. Wonder if this BW Ravage will fit on PRiD Soundwave.

Murderbee and Wheeljack both look kinda cool...but I'm more of a fan of elegant/cleaner lines.

I'll pass on these.

Considering picking up wheeljack...but I think I can foresee some nice Barricade customs coming from murder-bee.

Hmmmmmmm :-?

Still only interested in Lazerback, but a little less so.
I'll have to see if other deluxes show up, and whether Leader Predaking is a reality.

Really loosing interest in the Prime toys. Will get Lazerback if he appears in the show, the rest are an easy pass, they be crap :P

Lazerback doesn't look to bad might pick him up eventually but bumblebee looks really really cheap & the others are just spiky versions of the originals. Yeah theres more plastic to them now but still not worth $15 if they even stay that, with all the extra plastic & gimmicks i wouldnt be surprised if the prices get jacked up yet again.

I actually like these remolds, but it is ironic that Hasbro finally starts applying more paint apps and they do it in the form of the partial dirty washes given to these that ruin look of the bots for me. And maybe I am crazy, but does Bumblebee's alt mode look Cheetor-esque with the spotting on his roof to anyone else?

Those cars aren't spiky enough - they'd just blend in with normal cars too much.

Lazerback's transformation is really unique - they haven't done the back-legs-become-legs-front-legs-become-arms-tail-becomes-weapon thing enough.

They actually look good in there pictures. Saw it outside the stores. Packaging for these beast hunter toys are bad. Kind of like a rescue bits packaging. Very cutish cartoonie (in a bad way). The ugly design packaging plus the cheap plastic is a no for me. Maybe the bigger transformers are ok. Bwt. Just opened sound way and the plastic is really light. Quality is not there
