The subject of our newest Age of Extinction gallery comes from our friends in Japan in the form of Movie Advanced AD-15 Deluxe Ratchet. Ratchet is a redeco of the Dark of the Moon Ratchet in more traditional Ratchet colors. This particular deco was originally planned for the cancelled Movie Trilogy Series. He also comes with a sword borrowed from the simplified Beast Hunters Deluxe Bumblebee. Click on the images to check out the full gallery.

Not bad at all. Never liked that head sculpt though.

*wants to say something, but spoilers*

I wonder why they even planned both a red-and-white and a white-and-red redeco of the same mold for a minor character in such a short time-span.

His sword isn't a new sculpt, it is actually borrowed from Simplified Bumblebee? :shock:

*checks*

Well I'll be, good eye!

Continuing to pick up on the Dinobot-palooza that is Age of Extinction, we here at Seibertron.com would like to present to the general public galleries of Dinobots! ...and a tiger. These four new entries are Dark of the Moon Dualor, Rav, Triceradon, and Catilla!

The first three are homages to Generation One Dinobots Grimlock, Swoop, and Slag, respectively, and are redecoes of Classics Mini-Cons Terrorsaur, Swoop, and Knockdown, respectively. Catilla is a redeco of fellow Classics Mini-Con Snarl. Check out the preliminary images below, and if they tickle your fancy, view the full galleries by clicking either each toy's gallery link or any of the images!

Dark of the Moon Dualor








Dark of the Moon Rav










Dark of the Moon Triceradon








Dark of the Moon Catilla

If a Dimetrodon and Pteranodon can be accepted into the Dinobot ranks, I don't see why the same can't be true for a Smilodon.

I have Rav, and always wanted to get the others to go with Grimstone, but these guys always go for such ridiculous prices on the aftermarket. (and I thought the $6 I paid for Rav was pushing it...)

Smilodonts were more famously known as Saber-Tooth Tigers (which Classics Snarl is actually not), and like Plesiosaurs and Mastodonts are also sometimes included in the Dinosaur ranks, especially back in the day.

Those are looking very nice. Does anyone know if they got a release in the UK? Just to see if it would be possible for me to track them down for my own collection.

Also are these the same molds that are in the evolution two packs?

Rav and Triceradon are (largely) identical to the ones in the 2-packs. Dualor and Catilla you'll have to get 2nd hand, as all 4 were Dark of the Moon and thus off the shelves.

Ah thank you :) I'll have to keep an eye out for them

Original Megazord, anyone?

I was under the impression there were no differences at all between the DotM and AoE versions of these things other than the DotM ones were sold on their own and the AoE ones came with Deluxes. (And that Rav had some QC issues with his Powerlinx socket that have been fixed for his rerelease as Strafe.) Is that accurate?

With "largely identical" I mean that the differences, if any, are minute and negligible. Rav's Powerlinx socket seems to have affected only a few runs, but I wouldn't expect them here.

Oh you guys know me ... there are minor differences, but mostly it comes down to slightly different shades of plastic. Comparison pics will be posted hopefully later this month as time allows. They're fairly low on the priority list at the moment. Trying to work through BotCon 2014 related galleries at the moment and then it's back to the onslaught of AOE products.

Has anyone ever thought that Dualor should be repainted and retooled as BW Megatron?

Though the wiki tells me they were all blind-bagged Japanese-exclusives. Alas.

Micron Booster Ver. 4, yes.

And their names are Gnashteeth, Chromebite, and Reptix (or Repticus, it's kinda iffy), respectively.
