Site sponsor Kapow Toys has been kind enough to supply us with some nice galleries of Transformers Prime Deluxe wave four's Dead End, Shadow Strike Bumblebee, Airachnid. Dead End is wild repaint of Wheeljack with a brand head. Shadow Strike Bumblebee is a straight repaint of RID Bumblebee in a "shadowy" deco. Airachnid is of course a brand new mold. Images mirrored below.

Wait, is his head sculpted to be in a perma-scream?

Wasn't going to get him, but if that's true, he's bought.

Still up in the air(heh) over Airachnid, still baffled as to here being shortpacked like that.

So, Dark Energon changed Dead End from being like this, eh?

Dead End looks demented, and his bio seals the deal. I will get it.

The others are all pass, apart from Steve.

Same, although it looks like the blades can detach and become a sword, which might not be too bad

Prime isn't in the same universe as WFC.

We can at least agree they aren't consistent with each other, so much to a point where they could easily be taken as separate universes. They do have as many glaring differences as they do striking similarities.

Oh I'm serious.

Are you saying that the G1 cartoon is in the same universe as the comic? Or hell, the Armada anime with it's comic?

While both may be in Aligned, they are obviously separate universes. :-B

Oh I do like him, but I don't like the same mold twice on my shelf.
It's why I have Banzai-Tron and not Bludgeon (that, and the fact that it was easier to get the former in the UK), for example.

LOVE DEAD END! From the first pics, but now he's really a favourite, the whole thing looks great, although the head does look a tad more "movie" than I'd thought from initial pictures.

That Bumblebee isn't half bad actually. That the "black" looks grey-almost silver helps. It makes him look a bit like a bin man. Which is cool.

edit:I acutally held off from Wheeljack in the hopes he'd get a repaint, like the original BB became Hot Shot. The wacky repaints are great in this line. Bring on RAVE MEGATRON!

Holy-crap...it still looks bad ass anyway! But the look of PRID Dead End's head, what gives? Is that his mouth open with all that light piping? :VEHI:

Nevertheless, that is what Dead end used to look like in the Aligned Continuity. The WFC/FOC bodies are what the characters looked like in the ancient past, while the Prime bodies are what they look like in the present.

That's why I keep WFC and Prime separated by applying the concept of Time Streams. Same Universal Stream =/= Same Character.

That makes no sense. The WFC designs are collectively a totally different aesthetic than the collective Prime designs.

Yes, I know they're millions of years apart, but we don't have evidence to show that Transformers in those two universes work that way. It's best not to jump to such conclusions. Until we have confirmed proof that they can look however they want to, or that there has been an in-continuity shift in their species design(not to mention every single TF giving up all those stylish noses), there's no need to claim that they can.

What more proof do you want than Hasbro openly declaring them to be in the same continuity? One has one look, another has another look, yet both are in the same continuity.

The same applies to G1 and Beast Wars/Machines. both are completely different in aesthetics (especially G1 and Beast Machines), yet no one questions their being connected.
