    Ultra Magnus

    Springer

    Ratbat

    All were displayed at Hasbro's booth at Auto Assembly 2008, they were very kind and allowed me to get pictures of the bios to add to our resources section. One thing to note, the Springer Ratbat set is classed as "War Within" series, so we might just get another toy or two released under that banner down the road.

    Having them be "War Within Series" makes me worry that we won't get to see Ratbat return in the Club fiction in that body... Ratbat was a major character in the G1 Marvel comics (which is continued in the club comic).

    Also note that Roadbuster vs. Dirge is "G1 Series". NOT "Classics Series". The reissue Prime is the only other one with the "G1 Series" designation..

    Ratbat's dead. Scorponok killed him. Bringing him back would just cheapen his death.

    Springer isn't exactly "The War Within" in design.

    They allowed close up photography, but you didn't get pictures of both of Ratbats insignias? :confused:

    It was sealed in box, I don't think they'd have appreciated me opening it up to get a pic of the other symbol.

    Ratbat is only as dead as Thundercracker and Skywarp, too. And the Seacons.

    I'm pretty sure Astrotrain was killed too.

    Also, Ratbat was killed by Scorponok's stinger blast. The ones who have survived were killed by Starscream, and had to have been a bitch to rebuild (after all the crap the Autobots went through with the chips and Nucelon and such).

    So it's entirely possible that Scorponok stuffed Ratbat's body wherever Thundercracker and Skywarp were stashed, just waiting to be reactivated...
