Meet the latest Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Deluxe, Ripclaw! The Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Deluxe Wave 2 figure has been inadvertently revealed thanks to a packaging error from Deluxe Wave 1's Soundwave. Not only do we get a look at this brand new mold in both robot and dragon modes, we also get a clear look at her bio. That's right, Ripclaw is a female character who will be joining the Predacon ranks along with Predaking and Lazerback. Check out the card back courtesy of Yobuster.

Unquestionably loyal to the Predacon cause, RIPCLAW crushes her enemies and leaves their circuits burning with her mech-venom!

Silly question, I take it S'Wave was packed on the Ripclaw card?

Nice to see some balance with female characters appearing. I still want to see these in the "flesh" tho'....

More fembots are always a good thing. More fembots that don't fit the typical supermodel build are even better.


I do hope there are more than just dragons in the Predacon ranks.

Not a fan of the standard beast transformation but at least the dragon neck splits to become her shoulder plates. Not sure where the dragon head goes though.

She looks like a pretty solid mold, much better than the last Fembot, however that's another subject for another time. Anyhow hope to get her when she comes out, and hopefully wont be short packed.

Thats actually pretty cool, although I'm not digging the flattened heads of the predacons... and I feel this figure is going to have some ugly back kibble, but still, for now it looks cool enough that I might pick up. I like the porpotions in both modes.

Yup. Just him swooping down against Mr. Grimlock. Nothing epic or anything. Image

So excited. I hope this means, since Ripclaw really should be repainted into him, that Ser-Ket will be among the Predacons that actually show up in season three. :DANCE: :KREMZEEK:

Very nice! Now TOMY needs to consider making an "Arms Micron" version of Dragstrip. Preferably a PRIME version of the ANIMATED/Timelines character. :-?

Depends on what you mean and which continuity. ;) Hasbro's has him be from War for Cybertron. Which means that unless he was reformatted, we would have to wait for Flame War to be made. However, Drag Strip was a great Team Stunticon character and would make a great Arms Micron character.

Ergo... If Hasbro is turning an otherwise male character into a female variant, TOMY should one-up this idea with Drag Strip. ;)

Hmm. I dunno. The more I see of these figures, the less I'm liking them. It's been nearly 20 years since Beast Wars and I'm wondering if Hasbro's trying to do with it, what they did with RID. (I.E. revitalize by going in a different direction.) Though, I must say that a lot of the later Beast Wars toys (especially Transmetals) were really nice representations of the characters. I'm hoping the show characters are stronger than the toys. That'll make me want to even buy them.

Sad to say, I'm drawing more and more towards Power Rangers, minute by minute. If it wasn't for the FansProject X-1 (Chromedome), I wouldn't be buying anything TF right now.

Normally, I don't care about beast toys and they usually don't bother me, but this is Prime... You don't drastically change Prime and turn it into Beast Wars. It might work with kids (which is what I know they're aiming for), but I dunno.

I guess it's the simplicity of the beast molds... I do yearn for the days of ROTF/HFTD/RTS toys. Complex, look GOOD, and they're nicely sized.

Interesting. Like the looks of this fig. Her and Laserback are quite decent. The fembot angle seals the deal for me.

Wish it was an Autobot fembot beastie though. I'd like that. (just my imagination coming out in text, sorry)

Before I finally can explain, as I had a major crash on my laptop, let me clear one thing up: I am referring to the fact that the Flame War was not turned into an Arms Micron character, Pryme. And yes, I already knew that she existed, even as an EZ series figure. >:oP

My point is this: I gave kudos to Hasbro by saying "Nice." I also did what the rest of you have done before, and make a wishful thinking-based statement by noting how I would love to see TOMY recreate ANIMATED's Drag Strip into another Arms Micron (again, not EZ) character. Especially since this will be Hasbro's third major female character (4-5 overall), while TOMY has only dished out 2... And neglected others that deserve the Arms Micron treatment.

I would have said this sooner, but as I said... My laptop had a major issue with the fact that my browser chose to freeze up twice. And atop of that, his response statement is one of those moments where the confused makes a confusing response. Plus, I would also point out that if this character is a minor character, we may instead see Ser-Ket be made by TOMY instead of Ripclaw. :lol:

(Oh... And once again, please do not assume anything tied to me. Right now, I am both struggling with my hobbies (as a few have not made any of them truly enjoyable for me) and juggling the idea of both starting a small business and having both a life and financial future that (hopefully) excludes SSI. Thanks.)

Actually, they said that it would only happen if Rated X was to trade all his third-party pieces for nothing but Hasbro and TOMY pieces... And proclaim his undying loyalty and budget to both companies. ;)

This pretty much sums up how I feel about the current works done by both companies, even though "Robots in Disguise" was an English dub of "Car Robots." And if it was not for the treatment I faced on FUNimation's Facebook page in the past, and lack of knowledge on what books I'd enjoy, I would be on the very same page as Autobot032.

However, my "FansProject X-1" is the current Transformers manga series. That, and I yearn for more reissues tied to Headmasters... As well as reissues tied to both Beast Wars II and Beast Wars Neo (as TOMY at least should offer us a reissue of Lio Convoy, seeing how he becomes Leo Prime). :-B

Doesn't matter to me. I only gave kudos to Hasbro for doing this. And if this did turn out to be an error, then their "Revenge of the Jedi" move have made the MOSC pieces very collectible.

Oh, and I still only collect TOMY's line. So there is that 50/50 chance I will get her if they put her out.

PrymeStriker wrote:If she is a character of any superiority at all.


If she is more than a mere concept character, and more than background character, she will have some form of superiority. Then again, she does not have to be a main character to be a major character... As she might be between the Vehicons (minor) and Predaking (main). ;)

PrymeStriker wrote:Is Hasbro not allowed to release Ser-Ket? Is Takara not allowed to release Ripclaw?


Yes to both. No to both. And I am leaning towards no, unless TOMY decides to pull a "Rumble and Frenzy" by making some minor retooling on Ser-Ket. Otherwise, I only expect them to do the two characters separately.

PrymeStriker wrote:Also, we don't even know if Takara will be continuing the Arms Micron gimmick into Beast Hunters.


Just note that TOMY created a history for this line and the only way they will abandon it is if season 3 and beyond have nothing to do with Earth. Because Arms Microns are weapons that were exposed to Earth's energon and mutated in the process. And even then, it looks like they have no intention to abandon it anytime soon. >:oP

We currently have no indication at all about whether or not Hasbro will release Ser-Ket in their markets, or whether this mold will ever see a Takara release in any form. However, being as Ser-Ket is a Hasbro creation, and the toy mold will be released in some form on Hasbro's shores, there's stronger precedent for a Ser-Ket release than Hasbro Ironhide or Frenzy.

They created a gimmick story for the toyline that has little to no bearing in the show, even with the alterations they made to their version of the cartoon. The gimmick was chosen due to the popularity of model-building in Japan, so it seems unlikely they'd drop it now. However, I think a lot of us hope they at least stop with the decals on the main figures and go back to paint apps.
