Some new in package images have appeared on Yahoo Japan auctions of what we can safely say are the next wave of three Reveal the Shield Scouts. These new images show front and back of package images of Demolition Rumble, Downshift and Bodyblock, revealing that they are Decepticon, Autobot and Autobot respectively. Does this mean that Deep Dive, the recolor Bodyblock is colored to match with, will also be an Autobot? Well, possibly not, given that Strafe and Sunspot are Autobot and Decepticon respectively, while also being colored to match each other.

Dang, he's an Autobot. Which probably means Deep Dive is an Autobot too. We need more Decepticons!!

Not necessarily. See Strafe and Sunspot.

But I do agree. Reveal the Shield thus far has a staggeringly disproportionate number of Autobots.

I believe deep dive is an con so your right.
Thundershot
I called it when we first saw him

Does anyone have Deep Dive yet? I just assumed he was a con, but I don't recall anyone with one saying yet...
muffinhunter
Has it been settled yet whether or not Rumble and Frenzy combine in any way? Wasn't that the early talk? I haven't really seen anything to support that lately...
Grimlock_13
Well since it's RtS it won't have any faction symbols. Peel off the rubsign, get some Reprolabels and poof! Decepticon.

Another Autobot? What do they think this is, Marvel Crossovers? Where all the badguys at?
RedAlert Rescue
If Breacher's repaint is an Autobot then any third one they release better be a Decepticon or I will sulk.

Pity as the colours looks like they might be fun with Deep Dive...

I think if Hasbro drop below 1/3rd of what they release being a Decepticon then they are failing... and actually going against their own established product template - this isn't Batman this is a Civil War.

Has anyone actually crunched the numbers yet - if it's really really bad I may have to write & complain.

lugnut rumble and Cyclonus vs. Everybody else.

It would'nt be so disappointing if the mainline wasn't focused around those rub symbols and the entertainment of revealing the faction your figure.

legends megatron will lead us to victory.

I think Lugnut could probably take them all down though
I completely agree. And throwing in "springed" gimmicks is getting old. (Launching missiles, pop out blades, etc.)

Yep, definitely glad I'm keeping my Perfect Effect Rumble and Frenzy for my Classics display. Just don't like that new mold at all.
TCracker
all will be mine. I just love Downshift's colors! Bodyblock is a nice extra and Rumble i MUST have.
prime13
Bodyblock will be my mini-Springer.
Angelwave
I'll probably turn Bodyblock into a Decepticon. Heh...when you think about it, those RTS sheilds have their uses.
Ultrawave
I don't know about you guys, but I'm definitely getting that blue tank.

Demolition Frenzy
D-Unit
They look cool, but I'll only be picking Rumble up. Has anyone even seen Windcharger in their area yet, 'cuz I sure haven't
Railguard
MAYBE Rumble, pass on the others, I haven't seen Windcharger anywhere.

I think the rumble/frenzy look great. I'm very glad that they are scout class figure, it's the perfect scale for them..

however, $8.99 @ most places is outrageous for a scout sized figure. i think $6.99 would be more appropriate. oh well. i only own 3 scout class figures, 4 if the HFTD insecticon ever goes on sale. but i'll definitely be getting frenzy/rumble.
CVprowl
im all about that rumble. sweet!
tide
reveal the shield is turning into reveal the autobot, lol

anyway i hope they put rumble into more than one case assortment because i think he'll be the first to be bought out of these three in most instances.
Chaos Muffin
These are so (*&^%$ cool.
KA
Gee i wonder if rumble is a good or bad guy hmm

An AUTOBOT! Ha! The cons are well and truly outnumbered.
Sepultron
The RTS line needs more STUNTICONS.

OR maybe Hasbro's been holding off on Decepticons so they can throw us the biggest curve ball of all time: Releasing updated versions of all six G1 Constructicons as a Devastator set.

Well of course it's not going to happen, but we can dare to dream.
xanthax
I love this mold. He will definately be on my shelf. The colors on Downshift also look fantastic.
RedAlert Rescue
Oh well if Deep Dive is an Autobot then I guess he does not get to hang out with my other Decepticon boats then.

At least his partner matches... and I suppose it's interesting to give Sea Spray a "Brother" and if they ever make a Legends or Scout Sea Spray they've given themselves a ready made repaint paint pattern for him...

But I have slightly less reason to chase after him if he's an Autobot - I guess I'll have to say pair him up with Seaspray then have them fighting against Superlink Shockfleet & Energon Dreadwing.

I was also hoping he'd be a decepticon as they King Bat's Trident would have suited him much better.
exomega255
why are the autobots the ones in reveal the shield? I didn't know Autobots like to deceive and have that many spies? O.o

When is Rumble due out? You can't even preorder it!

Let's see there are 6 Decepticons (Megatron, Starscream, Lugnut, Rumble, Chopsaw, and Cyclonus) out of a total of 25 figures. Making Decepticons around a quarter of the line-up.
Stune
I wonder if they're going to release Frenzy under RTS.

Given that the movie line starts in two months and we haven't even seen Wave 1 of these Scouts...
