The bloom of Transformers news doesn't end yet, as The-Arker provides box images of two Revenge of the Fallen repaints - Strike Mission Sideswipe and Shadow Command Megatron. Strike Mission Sideswipe is a shinier repaint of Deluxe Sideswipe. He features a black strip across the hood and roof. Red windows and a dark grey body cap off the repaint. Shadow Command Megatron is mostly a black repaint of Leader Megatron, with red and copper accents. Check out each figures' biography and packaging images below.

Shadow Command Megatron
Landing thunderously among his assembled warriors, Megatron strikes the ground hard enough to shatter stone, calling his army to order. He has come here to renew his purpose, and reclaim his right to lead the Decepticon army. For too long the Decepticons have been scattered, either fighting as individuals or cowering in hiding. It is time that they all remembered that the word of Megatron is absolute, and no desire exceeds his well.

Strike Mission Sideswipe
Sideswipe is used to working alone, but he's enough of a team player to recognize that younger Autobots can benefit from his experience. What Mudflap thinks is a simple race is actually a training exercise. Sideswipe intends to put the young warrior through his paces, teaching him everything there is to know about offensive driving.

The two figures are set to be released when Hasbro kicks off their N.E.S.T. Global Alliance toy line. They are also up for pre-order at site sponsor BigBadToyStore. Megatron is available separately or with Leader Optimus Prime. Sideswipe is avaliable for pre-order with the three new deluxe molds in Deluxe 2010 Wave 2.

*Sigh* I miss the days when half a dozen repaints of the same mold were at least actual recolors and meant as new characters. Seriously Hasbro, adding racing stripes to Sideswipe A NEW REDECO DOES NOT MAKE. If we start getting a gajillion Sideswipes like we do Bumblebees....

Megatron at least looks good in black .... shame I still can't bring myself to actually getting the Leader version. But it looks nicer at least.

Hm, I think I like the Shadow Command colours better than the actual ones.

On a remotely connected note, I dislike that Bayformer bios are always written not as a description of the character's personality and abilities, but as a description of current events. Hasbro, I want their Myspaces, not their Twitters.

Leader Megatron looks much better in that colour scheme. :)

I already own the voyager and the leader class ones but I really like these colors. Who knows, maybe I'll end up with him if I find the extra cash. lol.

Wonder if Buster Prime will be released in this "Nest Global Alliance" assortment?

Sadly that's just how it is these days. This is Megatron and Sideswipe version 2.0, not a brand new character. Hey, be glad we atleast have Tech Specs. Animated totally k-o'd that in their packaging.

True, but even "new" characters like Dirge suffer this. Besides, it's not like we know what Sideswipe's personality (besides "doesn't like Decepticons") really consists of.

I'm fine with not having the numbers, but I miss the Budiansky days when everyone has 2-dimensional personalities instead of 1-dimensional personalities. At least Animated's "Galactic Abilities" add character and humour to the toys.

Yeah, I could go further into the complaints but... nah, not worth my effort.

Did any one notice the N.E.S.T. sticker on Sideswipe's instructions in side the packaging? Looks like that's for the Mail-in Ravage figure. Great idea to prevent scalpers or getting scalped... Just check if your figure has its instructions!

Speaking of NEST stickers, I just got a Dirge and the only sticker it had inside was that big one on the upper right of the plastic. Is the mail-in Ravage US only product or something?
