We got more official pictures coming out of Amazon.com. This round of updates is about wave 5 of Beast Hunters Cyberverse Legion figures. We've got new images of Rot Gut, Bluestreak, Ace Vehicon and Divebomb. These are all redecos of previously released legion figures.

Transformers Prime Legion Class Rot Gut

What he lacks in speed he makes up for with the might of his Affliction Hammer! Autobots beware, because this Rot Gut figure is their worst nightmare! He's a Predacon menace when he's in robot mode, and he'll pound his enemies to scrap with his Affliction Hammer. But when he's in dragon mode, he won't need weapons to win

Transformers Prime Legion Class Bluestreak

What's the most unstoppable thing on the battlefield? The mouth of Bluestreak. He never stops talking! Decepticons beware, because this Bluestreak figure is their worst nightmare! He can attack his Decepticon foes with his Chain Bolter weapon. But when he needs to chase them down or do speedy recon, he can convert to sports car mode!

Unwilling to serve the evil Predacons, this warrior now flies for the Autobots! Predacons beware, because this Divebomb figure is a vicious Predacon-hunter!

Rot Gut looks awesome, and I dig the name too. I probably won't bother with the rest of these, but the Ace Vehicon looks a little better here.

Always loves me some Jet Vehicon.

S-swoop? Is that you? :shock:

Really wish Divebomb had more story to him since a Predacon turncoat who joined the Autobots sounds too interesting to be a mere toy-only deal.

It's really sad that Hasbro wouldn't release Deluxe Air Vehicons and Deluxe Ace Vehicons, but at least we get them in Legion size. Talk about getting the short end of the stick. I couldn't agree more with the one member that refers to Hasbro as Hasblow.

Now if they'd just release a renamed/repainted Hun-Grrr and a renamed/repainted Twinstrike (Sinnertwin) so I can create another combiner.

I too love me some Jet Vehicon.

I just wish his blaster wasn't so very RED. That's an AUTOBOT color! :-x

Still, I'll be picking up three of those buggers.

Well, as someone who generally believes the majority of the Decepticons are the good guys in the conflict... I don't disagree with your statement.

In entirely unrelated news, I will rub the lotion on the skin. I do not want the hose again.

Rot Gut is simply divine in all his snotty ogre glory! I think I may get him, even though I don't generally buy repaints. Interesting how he's got two distinct eyes instead of the single visor his mold-mate Blight had.

Divebomb's hands are even more obvious than Cutthroat's (or whoever his name is) was. I also wish his face and eyes were a different color, to further differentiate him from Cutthroat/whoever.

I hope we see new character repaints out of Sinnertwinstrike (Doublecross is the obvious choice) and Hun-Gurrr. I'd love to see new Predacon molds (Laserback and Ripclaw, particularly) but I imagine it's too late for that.

A bit odd how Cons generally have red eyes while the Bots have blue, then.

Check the Prime Cyberverse line. In the initial waves, each of the Legion scale figures had either a red weapon for Autobots or a purple weapon for Decepticons.

In addition to this, throughout the Aligned continuity, the generic troops for Autobots have tended to be red, and the generic Decepticons have tended to be purple.

Hence why I associated red with the Autobots.

Not liking the colours on either Rot Gut or Divebomb.

Rot Gut reminds me of the Green Guy from MTMTE. The "It's raining Autobots" bit. I like this.

Unless we get a HunGrr repaint as Doublecross, Divebomb is loosing his Autobot logos. And possiby being redubbed Ravenous...

I really want to get in on some Vehicons, but I can't do it. Even saw the jet vehicon...

Rot Gut looks toxic, and I love that. Divebomb....using a Predacon name for an Autobot seems like a reversal of the trend of using bot/con names for Preds. Not that I mind. I love his color scheme, and I hope he keeps his painted hands on the final release.
Also, Rot Gut makes Blight the most used Legion Predacon mold.
Blight mold: 5 uses. Blight (single), Blight (Abominus), Blight (Preds Rising 2 pack), Rot Gut, and Burara
Rippersnapper mold: 4 uses. Rippersnapper (single), Rippersnapper (Abominus), Cindersaur (Preds Rising 2 pack), and Jurara
Windrazor mold: 4 uses. Windrazor (single), Windrazor (Abominus), Divembomb, Barara
Twinstrike mold: 3 uses. Twinstrike (single), Twinstrike (Abominus), Garara
Hun-Gurrr mold: 3 uses. Hun-Gurrr (single), Hun-Gurrr (Abominus), Dorara

We need redecos of Twinstrike and Hun-Gurrr so we can make 3 complete Abominuses (and Goradora, with one Blight standing solo) and have more mix and match possibilities.

Swoop has been called Divebomb a few different times times in G1 media.

Marvel G1 Comics wrote:On Cybertron, Swoop was once a member of the Autobots' Elite Flying Corps and named Divebomb. After disobeying orders from Optimus Prime he came into battle with a Predacon, who defeated him and stole his name. The Autobot formerly called Divebomb set out to find the Predacon and steal his name back, but he was once again defeated. Only the intervention of Optimus Prime saved Swoop's life, a fact that Swoop hid from his peers in shame.


Dreamwave G1 Comics wrote:Swoop was an Autobot once named Divebomb, though the circumstances surrounding his name change are unspecified.



So it's still an Autobot name used for a Predacon. This Pred just happened to end up on the same side as usual... So he's SG Sideswipe. :lol:

Swell, repaints of Predacons that never appeared here originally at retail. All I've seen anywhere is Hun-gurrr and Twinstrike.
