    TRANSFORMERS Movie Scout: ARCEE
    Available exclusively! A fast, aggressive warrior, ARCEE is one of the most dangerous AUTOBOTS®*, despite her comparatively small size. She believes without question that the DECEPTICONS®* must be stopped at all costs. That belief, combined with the combat training she received from IRONHIDE® make her a pure warrior, a creature of speed and sudden action, striking the DECEPTICONS* whenever she can and fading away into the depths of space.



    TRANSFORMERS Movie Scout: HARDTOP
    Available exclusively! As an elite tracker and spy for the DECEPTICONS, HARDTOP has come into conflict again and again with AUTOBOT spy BUMBLEBEE™*. What began as a professional rivalry defined by the limits of their allegiances on opposite sides of a war became a full-fledged vendetta over the years. The two robots have played a punishing game of cat and mouse across the breadth of the galaxy; it is a little known fact that it was a shot fired by HARDTOP that took away his AUTOBOT enemy's ability to speak without pain.

    TRANSFORMERS Off-Screen: SIGNAL FLARE
    Available exclusively! Wired more for hard work than the heat of combat, SIGNAL FLARE prefers to remain hidden in the background, rather than on the front lines with OPTIMUS PRIME. On Earth, he stays in his vehicle mode and works secretly with humans to construct buildings capable of resisting even the mighty weapons of the TRANSFORMERS. When duty calls, however, he uses his powerful radar dish to transmit information between hidden AUTOBOT cells in preparation for the coming battle over the AllSpark.

    So, all the scout repaints are Target exclusives? Saves me money.

    Ahh, we're back to BW-era tech spec inconsistencies. I thought it was Megatron who crushed BB's voicebox? Now Hardtop shot it off.

    Well, that's because it's apparently not specified in the movie, so the toy and comics teams each went with their interpretations.

    So, despite them having S7 logos (except Arcee), they are actually part of the two factions undercover? That’s kind of a let down. I was hoping for some mindless, third-faction drones.

    Going back to BM, drones in the cartoon have had personalities on their tech specs. They help sell the toy.

    I think we have seen a scan of the box already but for those who did not read the Bio:

    Robovision OPTIMUS PRIME

    Available exclusively! Blazing down to Earth's surface from outer space comes OPTIMUS PRIME. His protoform mode is ideal for covering the vast distances between stars, and armored to survive the catastrophic descent through a planetary atmosphere. When he arrives, however, his first task is to find an appropriate disguise in which to conduct his search for the Allspark. As his scanning beam sweeps over nearby objects, he sees the world in the deep red that tells him his targeting and scanning systems are active. Then, his gaze settles upon the coolest thing he has ever seen. Yes, this will be his disguise on Earth.

    Kinda chafed about how they already retconned Bumblebee's crushed larynx. Neat regardless.

    Haha

    I find these unnecessary. There's already so much new product being released, do they really need to milk it with repaints of old toys?

    Maybe Hardtop takes credit for the damage in order to prop himself up in the eyes of his fellow Decepticons.

    As far as being a S7 vehicle, he's a spy. So it stands to reason he would try to blend in with the humans holding Megatron in an effort to free him.

    megs did do it

    i read the IDW prequel and the "ghosts of yesterday" novel.
    in both,not only did megs crush 'bee's voicebox,there is no mention of hardtop.
    they're shoehorning in new guys at the last minute.
