If he is dead why give him a Beast Hunter figure. Pretty stupid. Maybe somewhere down the line the mold might make a good Botcon repaint. Other than that, waste.

What an abomination

Because Hasbro needs to sell toys. Why does it matter anyway? They did the same thing with Cliffjumper and Skyquake.

It looks like they've blown up and modified the Cyberverse mold for this guy. The transformation especially looks almost identical, except for the shoulder pads.

This HAS to be an early April Fool's Day joke. Really? A Foghorn Leghorn redeco?

I figure it's because of the small cast. Beast Wars, Animated, and any other Transformers series all had more bots on either side than Prime has. That's why we're getting more of the same characters when really we shouldn't be.

I'd hoped they would have done a Beast Hunters version of Breakdown, but I guess not.

Beast Wars is cutting it close. It's the weekend, so I'm not going to do any maths, but I think the Prime cast is only a few short. It's just that most of the Cons have died and stayed dead pretty quickly, whilst BW tended to replace the casualties.

BW also had quite a few different versions of their different show characters. In many cases it was done in conjunction with the character models in the show changing as well, but there were the various Fox Kids repaints as well as those Transmetals that didn't get Transmetalized in the show. It's just with BW there were dozens of non-show characters made as toys, some of them repaints or retools of show characters, yes, but many not. TFPrime has only had Dead End, Rumble, Hot Shot and Kup in the main line that I can think of as non-show characters, plus a few cyberverse repaints.

On second looks, it seems as though the wings may be able to spread out, too.
Seriously, I think I really like him for the sheer audacity of his existence! :D

The wings do indeed spread out, but my gosh, what a cheap looking figure. I like how Hasbro took the time to paint the edge of the chainsaw parts, but not any of the rest of the weaponary -_-

So for Beast Hunters, Hasbro took one of the most bad@$$ characters of the show... and turned him into a chicken. How ironic. :roll:

Yet with a certain charm...

The kibble in jet mode is bad. I expected to see his feet, but the arms too? Bad Hasbro.

I really hate the feet, but if they were painted blue or gray I might be more receptive. The figure isn't quite as terrible as the stock photo made it look, but it's still not high on my purchase list.

It looks like an enlarged version of the scout figure and was given chicken feet. In all honesty, I think I'll be giving this figure a pass if it makes it's way to the UK.

He's chunky and looks like he has decent articulation. I like him. But I'll wait for a Skyquake.

not sure I'd worry about that. Think Hasbro UK has put out all the TFs they're going to this year, at least til near x-mas.

Not really. The Skyquake and Zombie Cliffjumper figures are show accurate to their brief appearances. Plus they were just repaints. This is a waste of an brand new mold. It's wasted plastic they could have used to make deluxe sized Terrorcons. Thats how Hasbro could sell some serious numbers.
