Most if not all of the Cybertron bios are up now at transformers.com. Bio page here.
Whoa whoa whoa... the pic for Scrapmetal is YELLOW??! And it is a different box art than the original red Scrapmetal...
Repugnus = d-con? No.
No shoulder cannon in that Scrapmetal art either. Weird.
Why cant they seem to keep any Repugnus straight... Cybertron and Universe versions have problems with factions
Where's Override GTS? Odd that she's the only one missing...
WTF is up with megatron?! lol
Override GTS isn't the only one missing. The entire Cybertron Defense Team isn't there.
And that artwork for yellow Scrapmetal is pretty interesting. Perhaps Hasbro caved and decided to (eventually) give us the Galaxy Force repaints? Because they said at Botcon that they were going to do a unique repaint, but this can't be it.
I'd LOVE them to do a yellow repaint of scrapmetal.....
..with the coby rumble head
I want my blue Scrapmetal!
I got a blue rumble today I hope its a yellow coby body named bumblebee
They didn't even bother giving Skywarp a new bio, they just recycled the G1 bio
Galactic Empire that's Star Wars. That's it *walks away*
Why the hell a yellow one over blue?! There never was a"yellow" Ramble/Rumble/Frenzy/etc.
Bastard. er...I mean, could you get me a blue one? Pretty please, with sugar on top?
Crosswise, Downshift and Thunderblast are also missing.
EDIT: Oh...and Dark Crumplezone.
Swerve's is pretty funny,,,
(BTW Those are their typos, it looks like they missed a line when entering that text)
So he started out looking like Crumplezone and after 16 generations of improvement he ends up looking like,,,,CLOCKER?
I wonder if he's envious?
Oh and Swindle is just nuckin' FUTS!
Also MIA is Quick Mix or whatever the Autobot Gigalonia guy is named.
I have a theory regarding the Yellow Scrapmetal art.
Hasbro probably did have plans to release the three "Rumbles", but the idea was most likely scrapped and they opted for the single red one instead. But they probably got as far as the boxart for the other two, and decided to post the unreleased art on the site.
There is another scout in the Walmart computer named "Hightail" that could go with the yellow Scrapmetal art. This reminds me of when the art for Cannonball was put up on the TFCC website before the toy was announced.
Infosaur's post made me realize something: Hasbro's web team needs some improvement. Swindle and Swerve's "bios" are actually their secret Cyber Key info.
I'm sure a couple there's a couple more like that.
