Ripclaw has a different symbol located on the chest. It looks more like a Unicorn, really. Maybe they denote different clans?

If it helps, lazerbacks bio mentions that he hates Decepticons and Predacons equally; so perhaps there are different factions.

Lazerback and Twinstrike had the same symbol before it got changed on the final product. That was the prototype for the Predacon symbol earlier in the production.

Oh yes!! =P~ And Hasbro comes out of nowhere with a knockout blow! Smokescreen looks fantastic whether or not he can be de-beasted. It'll require a bit of work and a bit of paint, but it has to be do-able. I'll be getting two of this guy. I knew it'd be worth holding off on AM Smokey. Thanks Hasbro.

Then again, I suppose Takara could still do something better with it. :BANG_HEAD:

Bulkhead's not too bad either, but a deluxe sized version of the big guy is a 'no-no' for me. If he gets an upgrade in the show then hopefully a 3rd party will provide said upgrades as a set.

Thanks to ACToys we get a closer look at Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Deluxe Wave 2's Smokescreen. This set of images give us a clear look at the figure's head sculpt and Shadow Quill Armor, which appears to be removable. It looks like Smokescreen fans may finally be getting the figure they've been craving since he made his debut last season. Images mirrored below.

Orange light-piping?

Nothing a little paint or Sharpie can't fix...

There's quite a few things on him that a little paint won't fix. I'm still not completely sold on the idea that his armor is removable. I suspect, at least for vehicle mode, that it won't work without it. I don't think there's a front end of a car hiding somewhere under that blue armor.

Well we now can see that the chest is fake as there's a hinge for it to move around.

Thank you Hasbro for cutting corners on the FOC line, so you can waste all that "pricey" plastic on this god awful line of figures that will seriously shelf warm worse than the Bee hives of DOTM. :BANG_HEAD:

Welp, I'm sold. I know it's a fake chest and all, but i prefer that to making them less accurate to the show (wish they did that with Knockout). I also look forward to Reprolabels adding a little color to this guy. He looks really spot on other wise :D

It looks like the hood of his car form folds up onto his forearms.

I dunno what you guys are all complaining about, I like the look of this figure, and the fact that he's got removable armor and no crazy ass spikes everywhere.

The door decals aren't spot on, and some of the paint apps are bad, but that sculpt is incredible. Nothing a little paint & Reprolabels can't fix. Muahahhaha.

Now, I'll quote a fellow Seibertronian so I don't have to say it myself.

Looks like there might be a good Smokescreen figure in there if you take the armor off!

You can. They wouldn't give it a name and list it as an accessory if you couldn't. >:oP

Well, I hope the armor is removable. That would be a nice feature. Plus it would prove to me that Hasbro's not only smart, but sneaky. Which would earn them mucho respect in my book.

Either way, though, I still have no regrets about buying the AM Smokescreen. I'll gladly keep it with or without this one.

Won't know that until we find out what kind of head connection this has. If it's a ball joint we should be good.

I'm considering doing it as well. Although, my only worry is that Takara's head is too big, or otherwise oddly proportioned. Or it doesn't transform right with the new head. In any case proving faulty, I'll hope Reprolabels does something about this head.

Going by these pics, and if the armor is removable, I may pick this one up so I can have a Smokescreen on my Prime shelf. If the armor can't be removed, its a No Deal moment.
