    Over at the Allspark, this was posted which clearly shows Transformers Universe Superion in Revenge of the Fallen packaging.

    Which makes me wonder if Hasbro's pushing back the gestalt release.

    Still, it's a first look at the ROTF packaging.

    Oh - another comment - this got pointed out to me by Ra88. At the top of the window... is that a face?

    I see eyes - could that be the Fallen?

    I can't believe I didn't notice before that one of the Aerialbots was paying homage to Energon Starscream... but that was probably mentioned already. I didn't read most of the combiner news thread.

    ANYWAY. Packaging! That is beautiful! Sure, it's still mostly red, but it's definitely differentiated from both Movie 1 and Universe. Daddy likes.

    Maybe Hasbro's anticipating Superion to shelfwarm, so they're repackaging him already?

    Or maybe they did the Universe packaging first, and decided at some point during production to shift these figs into ROTF's toyline instead.

    Really nice packaging. Digging the symbols on the inside.

    Not really.... there's an "inner box" if you look carefully. It looks to me like the cardboard is an outer "pretender" shell over a clear plastic box inside.

    I dunno, closer look has me thinking that at the end of the day it's just another "pop flap, pull insides". :D  The zigzaggidy stuff looks like it has a clear plastic window-frame right underneath.

    It's definitely eyecatching packaging, so grats there. I can dig it. Liking that the robot mugshot is more of a profile angle than a full-on "HEWWO DERE" deal.

    But what about the set of eyes on the box that look ominous?

    And also... I note that the cyberglyphs are on a surface that makes it look like it's a tablet form ancient Egypt or something (I don't see them as coming from a metal world - plus the layout seems like that as well). Not to mention there's Autobot and Decepticon insignias engraved on it, which suggests it dates to after the war began.

    The art for the head looks almost like a 3d model. I think its done by the same artist who did the head art for the first movie toys, but this time, their drawing them at an angle instead of front view.

    Interesting, very interesting. Looks like we'll get two chances to get the sets, or at least Superion, though I think it's very unlikely that they'd do this to one and not the other. These are also the first official pictures of these figures.

    Gotta get used to the new packaging. Not bad though.

    That might be Devastator or new Megatron's face.
