    I could have sworn these images were seen at Botcon.

    They were, except the head turn around.

    Or maybe they were different ...

    These are different pics.

    Rampage is missing the Predacon symbol now, which is good.

    Now I just need to figure out how to get it without giving the club any money directly.

    Those were preliminary mock ups. Used to pitch the ideas internally and to Hasbro. These are the final mock ups that are used as the basis for the production toys.

    I'm actually digging that Rampage's head.
    Shame I'm not exactly a big fan of TFCC...

    Ah, very cool then.

    so even though those images are Digital Repaints, will the final product resemble them pretty closely then?

    I'm digging them so far.

    it would be nice to see the fusion cannon be ditched for Rampage's Trademark gatling gun. :D 

    I love the Transmutate, even though it still looks like Arcee.

    I will actually call Her Elita-1 (Based on the Animated version's Colors)

    Pete, with the way these are molded, won't the hinge for the wing on the leg be solid orange, since the lower spike on the shoulder is orange too? That would disrupt the paint on the leg, with it ending halfway up the hinge, yes? Or is the part layout different, which might avoid that problem? (example: those parts being spread across two sprues instead of one)

    If only Rampage was a voyager. Would have been excellent.

    Darn, I thought Rampage was going to be made from Beast Hunters Sharkticon Megatron since his alt mode looks like a beast.

    If they had done that, then transmutate should have been the freebie with Rampage being the one you had to buy.

    But... Rampage isn't a shark. The fins and everything on that mold would have looked all wrong on him.

    This mold fits Rampage's robot mode much better, and he most likely did not have a beast alt mode before landing on earth.

    Rampage's head looks nice. I'm not convinced that the Prime Megatron mold works for him, though.

    Using the Arcee mold for Transmutate doesn't work at all.

    Rampage
    negative - maybe Prime Beast Hunters Shockwave with the crab parts would have been a better fit.
    Positive - it looks really really nice!


    Transmutate
    Negative - the connection to Transmutate is incredibly weak. The only thing I could think of that is in any way a connection is Arcee's creepy smirk on this toy. (But I guess this is intentionally the character before she got deformed)
    Positive - Whoever it's supposed to be, the color palette is really really really nice.


    Hurray for well-balanced posts!

    Transmutate is a character that should be left alone. The story of this character is one of those golden moments in Transformers history, and this new figure takes a giant shit on that moment. This is not some great tribute or lovely homage. It is crap. There is only one Transmutate, and it died in the same episode in which it was born.

    Doing Transmutate while skipping Terrorsaur, Scorponok, and Tarantulas....."yay". Maybe we'll get a Miko repainted as a neandertal next! :p

    Yep, pre-earth Protoform-X. I think it looks fantastic, easily the best club freebee since Runamuck. I do dig the "what if she hadn't become horribly twisted" transmutate as well, I just with they used PRID Arcee so she wouldn't be taller than X is.

    I imagine these will be alternative-universe versions, rather than straight BW versions.
