    I was looking at this case order for Cyberverse Legion wave 2 on HTS -

    http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/new-to-hasbro...;ST=SO&PG=1

    All the bios here are much longer than on the actual toys. For instance:

    The bio on the back of the Vehicon packaging ends at "whatever the AUTOBOTS will do to them". Furthermore, Soundwave actually HAS a bio here, whereas back of the packaging on the retail toy is blank.

    (And, bizarrely enough, the Cyberverse Soundwave product page does have a bio - but it's still shorter than the one on HTS. http://www.hasbro.com/transformers/en_US/s...CADB2E2B2:en_US )

    I remember a theory way back when that all Decepticons start out as Vehicons, and only get their own unique bodies and names after proving themselves worthy. Looks like that theory may prove to be correct!

    Your theory is flawed considering that soundwave starscream and megatron all had separate forms before the destron army was formed

    Somehow, I don't think that was their policy right at the beginning. Could have been something they later implemented.

    Mirage has an awesome bio. Hopefully someday he'll get a decent toy.

    Interesting stuff - I wonder just how many other toys have had longer bios than what was printed on the packaging? I assume it's a typeface / space issue that keeps the whole thing from being used.

    I think that Vehicons are kind of like the Skrall in Bionicle. They all start out without names, but once they prove themselves they get a name and can rise in the ranks from there.

    Kaymac,

    Kinda feel ya on that one. In a military sense, Megatron has no use to grant names and titles to the Vehicons as a whole. Under the assumption, once proven, they get a name, and further goes to the thought that if you serve Megatron well, you will be granted "SOME" form of independence. Also it serves as "motivation" to complete your mission and to keep the Decepticon "fighting spirit" among the lower ranks, something that Megs would appreciate.


    However when Starscream took over, and the Vehicons were asking if we can't conquer Earth under Megs, how can we do it under you, there in lies the issue with the Vehicons, they are mostly mindless drones, without the ability to act on their own, or adapt to the situation at hand.

    They lack initiative, and with that, Fail in the concept of being a true Army for megs.......

    Oh Yea, just got back from my American Military history class

    Very cool -thanks for the post, Monzo.
    With all the effort Hasbro goes through to get these bios printed online or otherwise I wonder why they don't just go back to having actual 'Tech Specs' on the packaging again.

    Not enough space.

    And the European ones have nothing at all listed. So I always have to look them up on Hasbro's site. Since so call sources of info like TFwiki are to busy trying to be funny to actually waste time trying to be informative.
