The Transformers Generations: Fall of Cybertron minion two-packs have made their initial retail sighting in Australia. This wave includes the Frenzy-Ratbat and Ravage-Rumble sets. This sighting comes to us via the Australian fansite Ozformers, who just last week reported the first retail sighting Transformers Generations: Fall of Cybertron Voyager Wave 1 (Soundwave and Soundblaster).

I know they won't, but I really wish they would sell Laserbeak and Buzzsaw in a seperate two pack. I want them, but don't see the need for another WFC Soundwave when I have the deluxe.

Is Ratbat a purple Laserbeak with a bat head?

Can't wait for these little suckers. Soundwave especially.

They'd look great on my Classics shelf. :grin:

Hot on the heels of their initial retail sighting in Australia we now have in-hand images of the Transformers Generations: Fall of Cybertron Decepticon Data Disc two-packs courtesy of the Allspark's facebook page. These two sets include Ravage with Rumble and Ratbat with Frenzy. We've mirrored a few images below, the full gallery can be found by clicking here.

The more I look, the more I want them. And the more the little voice in my head says "Make up your mind already!".

Mother of God.... *puts on anti-RIRFIB flak jacket and helmet*

Not sure about these guys. The general idea is cool - I've always wanted to see a non-cassette minion - but these ain't particularly complex or clever. That Ratbat looks extra clunky with its naff disc-wings and tiny head. :-(

Ratbat has a great head sculpt. I think the functionality makes everything about this a compromise. Soundwave is thick chested with a wonky stick in his back, and these guys have their own proportion issues... usually to the tune of being too thick... also partly to contain the spring mechanisms, etc.

BUT I think with them in hand, we may all change our tune a bit because of the playability, launching, auto-transformation. (?)

Guessing we may walk away from the entire FOC line feeling like it was a bit of a compromise. Heh.

Love the bios.

Not sure if I'm buying these guys, but it's cool they not only did a faithful update to the original toy's gimmick but they also did much more than just Laserbeak. While there's technically only ~3 molds, we've gotten Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, Sunder, Ratbat, Rumble, Frenzy, Rewind, Eject, Ravage, Ramhorn, and Steeljaw all within a short period.

From High Councilor to disk-bat. Poor Ratbat. :P

I plan to just grab Ravage and Rumble, I'm not particularity impressed with Ratbat, and I don't feel compelled to pick up Frenzy.

So we're confirmed to get ALL these with FOC? If so, that's cool news. Minions are a good thing. Is this the mold breakdown? Any new heads besides Ratbat?

1. Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, Sunder, Ratbat,
2. Rumble, Frenzy, Rewind, Eject
3. Ravage, Ramhorn, Steeljaw

Almost:

1) Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, Sundor (from Sun and Condor) and the retool Ratbat
2) Rumble, Frenzy and the retools Eject and Rewind
3) Ravage and possibly Steeljaw
4) Ramhorn

Wow. That's a staggering list. (And sorry about the typo.)

They did a great job finding in a way to shoehorn in a LOT of (often rarely-used) characters for the FOC line. The retool with Blaster really is nicely executed, too. I hope they can keep up this kind of well-planned thinking.

As is, our "Classics"/WFC/FOC shelves will be overflowing... and every Decepticon is going to have a bird on his shoulder. ;-)

While I wish Ratbat was a darker purple, I'm pretty satisfied with him, and that mold in general. The Frenzy and Rumble mold is adequate.

Ravage, however, looks like a coffee table with legs and a head. :SICK:

While spelling it Sundor for the reason you stated above makes sense- that's what the original toy was called/spelled- I thought I'd seen in all the official announcements and listings that his toy was spelled Sunder. I could be wrong, though.
