We got our first glimpse of this figure last week when a packaging error inadvertently revealed Ripclaw as the latest Predacon in the Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" toy line. Since the cat's out of the bag the official Transformers facebook page has revealed official images of the figure. Check her out in the images mirrored below. As many have pointed out she bears a striking resemblance to the Ser-Ket character who is currently being featured in the Transformers Prime: Rage of the Dinobots miniseries from IDW Publishing.

Am I the only one who thinks her head looks kinda like BW Inferno's?

I thought she was going to be grey, can't say I'm a fan of her real color scheme. Hmmmm, I'm really on the fence about this one. robot mode is okay but in beast mode the limbs look really awkward. I think I'll wait until she gets some reviews in before I decide >:oP

Looks more like BW Wolfang's mutant head, how he looked in the comics.

honestly don't know about some of these beast hunters figures, this one looks pretty interesting, maybe when seeing them in hand will have more of an idea, holding out for the new foc figures in uk too. It's gonna be an expensive year. :lol:

The symbol on her chest doesn't look right. Is it just me?

On another note, I might get all the Predacons, and ignore the spiky vehicles.

Atleast we now know what Ser-ket's figure will look like. If we get him. Ripclaw just doesn't look female enough though.

Ripclaw... the Christmas dragon!

Christmas SCORPION dragon, no less.

Looks alright, better than Lazerback. Still not sold on this line at all. The spiky vehicles are growing on me but I'm not picking them up if they're just new versions of the same figures I already have. So far it's just seeming like a good time for me to bow out of the collecting game for awhile and recoup my finances.

My interest in the candy colored monsters is quickly waning. >:oP

Looks like the dragon's head does drop into back kibble.

Yeah, I hate it when you can't actually look at a toy and visibly TELL it's a female. The proportions need to match up.

That said, I generally hate the head-cowl look on a Transformer anyway. (Makes me think of the wolf and dog Beast Wars era.) It's like the toy line is trying to draw in the superhero-action-figure fans with the mask, proportions, and general spandex-tights look.

I'd rather they look like robots. Bulky, mechy, squared-off, G1-ish, robots... ala the fansproject Swindle bot.

But I digress.

Given, for a younger audience they are fun dragons and monsters. Though they're not for me, I do see that they're good animal designs and pleasing (albeit very bright) color schemes. I can see a lot of Beast Wars fans getting really excited.

No love for Christmas scorpion dragons? :lol:

you mean she doesn't look like another stereotype with boobs and high heels? Sound the alarm! :P

Looks about as decent as any average beast bot from the Beast Era, Cybertron, or Animated has ever looked.

Yay.

Clunky, over-sized hand reminiscent of RiD X-Brawn, colors barely one notch above G2 color schemes. Looks like something spewed forth after a night of Jaeger bombs and Jello Shots.
All the vehicles in this line are nothing more than colorful rip-offs from the Mad Max films. I cannot see one redeeming point in this series whatsoever. I'm sure the 4 to 9 year olds will get a kick out of it but honestly, I cannot see what everyone else finds so appealing about any of these. I try to be open minded as far as the new toys are concerned but this new line just seems like a train wreck in progress. Those who do like them though, feel free to enjoy my share of them.

Not a fan of those colors. :SICK:

Other than that, the mold actually looks decent. Not quite persuasive enough for me to snag her, but close.
