Following in the footsteps of the Transformers Animatied-inspired, 2009 ROTF N.E.S.T. Lockdown, Hasbro is releasing Decepticon thug Lugnut as an all new Reveal the Shield, voyager class figure in 2011. As the release date gets closer, new images of this figure have surfaces on fansite HK-TF.com posted by Sumsum.com. This gallery give us an even closer look at all the detail on this new figure including its fantastic articulation and somewhat more realistic, drab army green paint scheme, a departure from his signature purple paint that Takara Tomy is using for their pending United release of the mold. The Reveal the Shield release from Hasbro is expected to be released at the end of this year and should starting showing up in stores in January or February. We've mirrored several of the images from original post. Click HERE to see the rest of the gallery on HK-TF.com.

At first, I didn't really care about this figure, but every picture changes my mind. Instant buy on site.

Sold. :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

I liked the animated version, but it was much to sleek for my taste.

RTS version is much bulkier, and just looks way better.

Has anybody else noticed that the figures in the movie line look terrible compared to Generations?

I have to admit, this figure has really grown on me. Still don't know that I will add him to my collection but he's certainly turned out to be a very cool figure and a pleasant surprise.

this does look cool. I've no prior experience of the character, but it seems like a nice solidly designed toy, and I could definitely see him fitting into a Decepticon army in a "big strong thug" role. Something the 'Cons can always do with more of.

the differences between the US and Japan releases are quite strong, enough that if someone had enough money and wanted to, you could easily use them as different characters. Not sure what version I like better, so if I do get one, it'll likely be the cheapest one I can find.

Add a pin up girl painted on the hull and it's perfect!

Not terrible, just different. It's a whole different aesthetic. I always take the advice of the Vulcans in these cases: Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations. In other words, variety is the spice of life so enjoy the differences in everything.

Really excited for this one to come out, though I've preordered the TT version. Solid, bulky, yet sleek in jet mode. A walking brawling jet o' doom.

Excellent photography there. Think I'll still go with the United version though, Lugnut needs to be purple as far as I'm concerned.

Looks like the nose pieces in robot mode are not mech alive, gear driven or what have you... Definite buy for me! Pin up girl would make the figure that much better lol

Lugnut is part of the movie line, and was designed to fit those aesthetics. Reveal the Shield contains both classics-styled characters and a few Bayformers (Mindset, Fallback, etc.)

i hope they do alot more animated figures in generation style. lockdown was cool as hell and id love to see some more. omega surpreme would cool just bcuz the design for him was pretty cool. i liked him as a hude battleship. kinda like the WFC version.

Wasn't the Hasbro version meant to be green and the Takara purple?

I like the figure but if the domestic release wasn't a cop-out grey plastic, then i'd prolly buy him. They at least could have used a colored plastic. Cheap bastards.

The grey is sooooo boring! just like Stratosphere looks boring. He's all grey plastic too.

It was likely an aesthetic choice, not a cost saving measure...
