Awhile back we saw images of a Battlefield Bumblebee and Infiltration Soundwave 2-pack that came with the mail-in offer of an exclusive Ravage. We've got some news regarding the boxset, as Ebay seller TFCToy has put it up on auction. Not only is it the first time we've seen the boxset up on Ebay, it also reveals an alternate packaging. It seems to not include the N.E.S.T. Global Alliance Iron-On Patch and the mail-in offer for Ravage. This box simple touts that these are 'Special Edition Figures'.

This poses a few questions. What in Primus is going on? Is this international packaging? Asia, Europe or Canada only? Does this mean that the 2-pack offering Ravage is an exclusive to one store, and that this style of box is what every other retailer is receiving? Or are there simply two versions of the packaging, and some of them offer Ravage, while others do not?

Simply put, only time will tell. So keep it tuned to Seibertron.com for the fastest Transformers news on the net!

Well it's International Packaging for sure. Hopefully this isn't what Canada is getting or else I'm gonna be fuming.

Given all those languages, I suspect it's European.

Relax, we will see these in the US...it was Americans who created the whole N.E.S.T. concept for the movie in the first place. (not that I liked it, Sector 7 was more realistic) But why couldnt they leave the red off of the Soundwave ???

Looks like I'm beaten to it, it's European for sure: 12 languages (do they even look at the images up close?). This confirms two things:

1. It'll see release in Europe
2. The Mail-In Ravage is exclusive to the US.

No. 1 is a surprise, no. 2 isn't.

So this creates a further question:

Will the European releases include the N.E.S.T. stickers like the US ones do?

Let's get back to that after the holiday season, we still don't have the Deluxe wave 6 with Arcee yet (here I go again...). In fact, checking the lists, we're one wave behind overall, excluding Scouts.

I thought Arcee was Wave 5, with Swerve and Stalker Scorponok. Wave 6 was Gears and Thrust, I think.

Not trying to pick a fight. Just want everyone to be on the same page. If Europe got a different release schedule, I concede we're talking about Apples and Oranges, and I'm probably wrong. But this was the US release schedule for deluxes.

Heres what i say. this is european due to the many bullet points of different languages. the US one will have the patch and the mail in offer. If i am right i definitely want the european one for MISB

Well, the Arcee wave is out in other parts of Europe (the UK included). I've not seen Thurst or Gears yet, though.

Looks like us Euro boys will just have to go via the scalpers if we wnat that Ravage, then. Plus ca change...

Come on Blurrz, since when have we had the packaging with more than 3 languages. This is for non North American.

Now if you are fuming because you want the Ravage promotion, well we'll just have to see about that.

Was in a rush when I had to post it. And I'm too lazy to press the 'edit' button!

No biggie, was just pointing out the obvious, No need to depress Haruhi over this matter.

Not to bust balls, but you're ever so slightly off. Our Robot Replicas have all 12 in size 4 font on the back. None of the other class sizes have it though.

I'm guessing this is the packaging we'll see because Hasbro Canada won't be offering the mail away figure.

I've avoided the replicas as I don't have any need for them. And while those may feature the entire language list, the packaging for standard items usually has differences between the US, North America (sans US) and Euro packaging.

While I will be greatly surprised if we get the Ravage promo, I expect for this pack, we'll get the standard tri-lingual fare.

That is definately a Euro-Box, I should know, I've got enough of them!

I thought you Canadian fans got dual language boxes in english and French? I didn't realise you had to put up with as much clutter on your boxes as we did.

There is a goos article here, complete with some reference pictures.

God knows how much one of those Ravage figures is going to set me back now.....

Trilingual has been diverted into bilingual. I still hate it because it means our bios and stats are on the back of instruction sheets and not on card.
