Leader starscream info:
Included are shots alongside his Voyager namesake so we can finally compare both in depth in vehicle and robot modes. Especially notable are the chest detailing in robot mode, and the inlets in jet mode.
Wave 9 release date info:
Could the next wave of Revenge of the Fallen Deluxe class toys be just around the corner? This latest piece of information from 2005 Boards veteran Hiro Prime suggests that Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Deluxe Wave 9 is now arriving in Wal-Mart stock rooms, but is not yet being put out as it has a street date of 11/11/09.
Deluxe Wave 9 is the second assortment of Revenge of the Fallen NEST Global Alliance Deluxes and is slated to include Lockdown, Ratchet, Brawn and Strike Mission Sideswipe. What this means for the wave preceeding it who have also yet to be released, containing Dirge along with Tuner Mudflap, Alliance Bumblebee and Armorhide is anyone’s guess. Could it be a mislabelled box, or could both these new waves of Deluxes be reaching retail simultaneously?
There’s only one way to find out the truth. Be sure to check out those Wal-Mart stores on 11/11/09 and see what new Transformers toys you can find!
Ravage re-paint info:
The exclusive mail away Transformer is a repaint of Revenge of the Fallen Ravage, with an updated deco including red “re-entry” paint applications to recreate the scene in the film where he launched off of Soundwave and flew down to Earth. To get Ravage, you have to first buy the NEST Battle set, and then affix three stickers to the enclosed mission guide – the stickers are available with all NEST Global Alliance Revenge of the Fallen Transformers. Those old school fans like myself might recognize this as a partial resurrection of the old Robot Points mail in campaigns!
But wait! There’s more! BWTF has also posted up scans of the catalog that comes with the NEST Battle pack. The new catalog shows off the next two or three waves of Transformers toys, but includes a couple of new toys. First up is Evac, a Generation 1 Blades inspired redeco of Blaze Master. Second is the previously seen Desert Combat Rampage, here just called “Rampage”. This confirms once and for all that the red Rampage will be making an appearance at US retail!
