Thanks to eBay seller lena81822 we have some in-hand images of Hasbro's upcoming Transformers Generations Deluxe Rattrap. Rattrap, along with Crosscut and Tankor, were originally planned to make up Generation Deluxe Wave 3, however that wave has been cancelled. Luckily all three are still going to be released in future waves. Rattrap and Tankor will be included in an upcoming Generations Wave 2 revision. Check out the images mirrored below:

That is NOT how you transform the thing, lena!

Major fail.

But the figure itself is still a must have.

Ironic, since none of the official photographers could even do that. :P

1) What?

2) I wasn't complaining. I was pointing out that they somehow knew how to transform Tankor correctly as opposed to Hasbro's official photographers.

He has bombs too.

And his gun splits into two separate guns.

But, no, his tail should not turn into a whip. He never had one in that body.

Oftentimes, clear plastic is a sign of such cases as "Because we think it looks cool!" This could be another one of those cases.

One thing's for certain: it's definitely not because Hasbro "couldn't afford" to paint the weapons.

lol so what? whats the big deal? Like putting people down? we know what Lena is about early releases (stolen maybe?? lol whatsup with this?) just means that official release is soonish right? hehe very happy to get any more pictures

EDIT:
if anyone wants this early. don't buy it now. wait like a week and the bids wont go as high. esp when it's front page people will go crazy with bids. i think Generations Rhinox went for over $100 crazy.

the major change that strikes me between the official shots and the in hand product is they moved the maximal symbol and gave him two.

In your comparisons, all I can pick out are the shoulders and the tail, which have both been left hanging down, and I don't see how that's such a big deal.

Of course, there's also the jazz hands, in which case it occurs to me that you might be joking.

Either way, I like this guy and I can't wait to find one.

yeah. I really really really am looking forward to this guy. Rattrap was the first original Beast Wars that I got (after the Prime/Megatron 2pack) so I'm looking forward to him. I don't understand the clear weapons either though, what is up with that?
I have been into transformers since 1984.
While I love G1 I also love new innovations and takes on the characters.
I prefer official Hasbro releases of stuff for the most part
I'm not a huge fan of Japanese original Transformers media or designs.
It's easier for me to say which are my LEAST favorite toy lines: Beast Machines, Robots in Disguise.

Which is great, except I was planning to ship them along with other Generations figures that got delayed. So I now I have to choose between paying more than I wanted to for shipping, or leaving them in my POL for several weeks or months. :-?
