Dunno why, but I'm in love with the name "Crocto Claw".

Too bad the Laserback mold didn't get head remolds like that booklet thing implied (with a "Scourge" retool instead of a Vertebreak redeco).

I kinda like this version of knockout, though it may be from what I consider a bad paint job on the original.

i still want that starscream and i would like that arcee to repaint but unless these come with an all new low price point ill have to pass once again. I refuse to pay anymore than $11 for these deluxes, now if they were built like the figures from a few years ago id pay $13 but they're not so ill take my money elsewhere.

Hmmmmmmmm I might settle for Vertebreak instead of buying the Gaidora repaint. I can't tell since I'm reading this from my phone, but is the head different from Lazerback?

I´m dissapointed at Arcee, I thought she would be in black, brown and teal, not blue and silver... not a big fan of BM Nightscream but I thought that was what they were going for.

I'm only interested in Knockout. MAYBE Arcee.

That Croc Out will be MINE. I freaking love that retooling.
Arcee will be mine eventually, and Vertebreak is pretty awesome.

:lol:

Are you serious? Why the heck would she be done up in BM Nightscream colors? She's blue and pink in the cartoon, plus she's been blue since the first time we saw this remold way back when.

Not like I have to explain myself to you, asshole, but the original pictures, or at least the ones I saw, showed her in darker colors.

Also, since Ratchet is an homage to Dinobot and I like to think of Dreadwing as an homage to BM Silverbolt, I thought they would keep the trend, specially since Arcee has bat like wings and some junk on her legs that might represent the wings in BM Nightwing´s legs.

The colors, you see, would serve to make that homage more obvious or maybe to make it an homage at all, since she doesn´t look like anyone else in the colors they´re giving her.

And, albeit Nightscream was a guy, he was originally intended to be a girl, his character model could´ve been used for a female character, in my personal opinion.

Homages to other characters aren´t everything to me, but since I like other versions of Prime Arcee better, that becomes a decisive aspect for me to consider.

Beast Hunters is a great toy line, I like it a lot, but to me getting a non Predacon character is a tough decition to make.

10 years of collecting has taught me that is never late to get a toy you really like or to change your mind about a figure, but making a list makes me feel better about my TF spendings.

Hope you understand now... gee, speaking to idiots is very exhausting, but I still can´t wait for you to tell me that Dinobot was a Predacon, like if I didn´t know, it wll be hilarious.

Calm down buddy, it's a difference of opinion, no need to insult people over it. That kinda talk will just get people angry at you.

That´s not an opinion, he even used an emoticon, you, or him for that matter, can ask for respect as much as you want and you should get it, but you have to pay respect first. Your comment is an opinion, what I think about that won´t make it better or worse and if I decide to express myself and say "dude, you´re right" or "you´re wrong" I most be smart enought to say it in a respectfull way, if I´m not, then I should just shut up and keep it to myself.

That´s what happened here, I don´t see why my first comment was so controvertial that someone felt the need to comment about it in a disrespectful way, it was a simple comment. I don´t see why I have to make my comment "fool-proof", as it is obvious he replied in the way he did because he didn´t understand it. Seriously, I used words as "thought" (meaning I don´t think that way anymore), "not like I´m a big fan", meaning is not something I´m really passionate about, and the word "disappointed", an individual appreciation about something, I´ll probably won´t change my mind just because someine tells me to. That first comment was an opinion, if he had one different to mine he would´ve said it, he didn´t because he was just trying to be obnoxious.

Get mad then, that´s your opinion about it and I respect it.

I wish there was an argument to win. Whatever, I´m sure the appropiate measures will be taken.

VERTEBREAK!! And he comes with a frikkin HYENA CANNON no less! I don't know what that does exactly...... but it sounds radical!

IIRC, the Hyena Cannon can turn people stupid!

Yes, I find the idea of Arcee in Nightscream colors very hilarious. Thank you.

In the original images, there was no indication of any brown or teal colors. Black, sure, but not the other two. It was clearly blue and silver (with pink highlights). Not like it's uncommon for Hasbro to drastically photoshop their stocks anyway.

Janus might have been thinking of the tiny pics of Hunter Arcee from the Go! toyline that we saw back during the Tokyo Toy Show. Albeit, they were rather tiny pics, but she did kinda look a bit darker.

I'll pick Vertebreak up if i see him at retail. He looks fun. Funner than the rest that's for sure.

I forgot these were coming out. :shock: Knockout looks awesome, Prime Arcee is a personal fave of mine, and the Vertebreak looks interesting enough for a pickup. Though, I'd still give up all 3 of these for a proper Hasbro release of Breakdown... :sad:

I'm 100% with you on that, but... eehhh, where are we taking our money??? :roll: I like the way you think, but I don't see the battle plan. :D Unless you mean we should buy only 3rd party products from now on! But then... that's paying even more for often even less plastic (COUGHSTUNTICONSCOUGH!). :HEADHURTS:

I'm not angry at Janus Prime; I support them. I find unnecessary language and ire entertaining. What I DESPISE, however, is the neutrality police! :roll: "CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?!?!" No. We can't. >:oP Let's shout some unnecessary language once in a while and let's all of us take a deep breath and not take the insults so personally. :-B

Nope, passing on all. All of them are not doing it for me.

I'll be passing on all these, me thinks. I quite like the Knock-Out remold, but I don't think I have a place for any of them in my collection.

Knockout is now a Must-Buy for me.

Arcee is now a Won't-Buy, though. It's just kind of boring. They could have at least done something other than blue.

These all look absolutely disgusting; even Knock Out now.

This will be the first wave of the line I'll be entirely skipping.

Yeah, I wonder if the Takara version has a little more punch than the light blue, light gray, light pink interior of the figure. No contrast. :-?

Only one I like is Knock Out, but I'm passing since I already own the original PRiD Deluxe.

actually very disappointed in that Arcee figure, the white plastic everywhere just dosnt work for it. maybe if they went for pink with hints of white instead of white with hints of pink

this line sucks. tf4 and the new show need to go back to quality control. no more cyberverse. and less repaints. i would say no repaints but hey. its hasbro.
Re: In-Package Images: Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Deluxe Wave 4 (1498427)
Posted by gothsaurus on June 27th, 2013 @ 3:40pm CDT
Yeah, hate to say it, but the company would go under if there were no repaints. They recoup their development costs, testing, etc. through multiple releases.

On the bright side, we'd have so Seekers ... or Prowl/Bluestreak/Smokescreen without repaints/minor retools. Necessary evil, sad to say.

I agree with you about this line though. I jumped ship a long time ago. I DO like the cyberverse stuff though. They seem to be better versions of many of the figures. Kinda odd.

A lot of people have been calling him "Crock Out", and I think most of those people came up with it independently. There was also "Knockodile", though that seems less popular.
