Hot on the heels of the "Red Baron Ransack" images, 2005 Boards member Vansch shows us an image of another new Revenge of the Fallen Scout Class toy. This one is a redeco of Dune Runner, done as a homage to the Generation 1 Autobot Beachcomber! At the moment there's only a vehicle mode picture, which you can check out by clicking on the thumbnail to the left.

Beach Comber.... Do want (even if the idea of him having Gatling guns is rolf)
Dinobot Snarl
does Beachcomber ( on page 2) not deserve a topic?! -AND BOT MODE PICS!
G1Wheeljack
Sweet, makes me glad I kept passing of the original. Also, I want that Beachcomber!
Omnius
Must. Have.

PS: Same goes for what is presumably Beachcomber!!

PPS: We also need an Autobot version with an Army Air Corps deco!
eisen
must have beachcomber!

Both Red Baron & Beachcomber look very nice! Excellent repaints! (Wow, You don't hear us praising repaints very often... )

Dear Hasbro,

buhh. you won.

He most certainly does. Awesome choice of mold and colours, although it makes me laugh that the original pacifist Autobot is getting more heavilly armed with each new rendition.
AniProwl
Man, I should've waited til the repaint of Dune Runner.

I wish Red Baron/Ransack mold get an autobot reapint soon.

Yeah.. THIS!


Scattershot from Galaxy Force / Cybertron also comes to mind for some strange reason....
Lucs
These repaints are really looking good. Not that into movie style so I might not get them, maybe Red Baron because I haven't got the mold yet. I'm in the process of making my own BC for my classics though
Paladin
WHo's the bike? We haven't seen that before either have we?

If you mean the mold itself, that's just Knockout, one of the first items in the ROTF toyline. If I'm not mistaken this is the "Road Rocket" redeco that was revealed a few weeks ago.
gargunkle
whoa

Beachcomber is nice but I'm more than happy with my Legends version.
SoundMaster
I'm glad I passed on the Dune Runner and Ransack molds before. These look great.
Houndvoice
I don't find them very spectacular, the original colours were more interesting and fitted the alt modes way better.

The Red Baron deco is just plain boring, and making that Beachcomber out of Dune Runner is halfhearted.
If they made him an open buggy and lost the BFGs I'd be more onboard.
Megatronwp38
Looks good in vehicle mode, however the bot mode of that figure doesn't look like beachcomber to me at all. I will stick with the legends figure.
Takara_destron
Sweeeet. Will probably pick this up.
Bumblethumper
Excellent. Two must-have repaints.

Win.

Same feeling... point for Hasbro.

I normally don't by any repaints (except for seekers and a UM now an then) but Beachcomber will be mine... I'll probably sell Dune Runner. Come on, who am I kidding? It's a scout after all -- not that I will be broke if I had 2...
Otispq
Hmmm, who's the main guy in my funnies...Beachcomber. So I must have one, even if he doesn't really profile very good with all themz weponz!
WhiteMocha
Fantastic repaints. I'm soooo glad Hasbro did the obvious, satisfying repaints with these guys. Otherwise it would have felt like irritatingly missed opportunities.

Hmm, I guess now the only Scouts of whom we haven't seen repaints are Ejector, Dirt Boss, and Scalpel. Wonder if those will show up as well (sure would be nice to see Dirt Boss done in orange as a Spoons homage).
Gingerchris
Prefer the Dune Runner colours.
Dinobot Nuva
Do want. Thought the next use of this mold would be movie 1 Landmine, glad it wasn't.
baggzey23
that red knockout looks nice (reminds me of arcee)

and i still havnt got a knockout so i might get that or reverb

dam why cant there be an autobot ransack

beachcomber looks ok but i prefer the army one (what vehicle that goes on beaches has guns?)
Bgrngod
Yes, this is what I like. More of this.

Do the entire list Minibots as Scouts in ROTF for all I care... please.
Digilaut
Yes yes yes! This mold was too obvious, Hasbro would have been insane NOT to do a Beachcomber repaint.
grimlock1972
bought for beachcomber but the guns on a pacifist don't make much sense unless they shoot flower bulbs or something lol
Tman978
I guess Beachcomber isn't a hippie any more. That bike looks like Gobots Scooter.
eisen
eh, the guns can be taken off easy.

Except for the face, arms, legs and general body proportions, I guess he can kinda not look like Beachcomber. If you don't look at him directly anyway. Heck, Dunerunner's head looks more like G1 Beachcomber then the legends version imo.

Those guns pop off real easy and have no negative impact on the look of the bot.
Anguirus
Dune Runner was kinda meh to begin with, I don't need another one. Also, I guess the Red Baron repaint of Ransack was kinda obvious, but I'm not sure I see myself picking it up. I actually like the dull colors on him.
CaptainChunk
I've held off buying Ransack until now. That Red Baron repaint will be impossible to resist.
Thelbert
Somehow I knew this Beachcomber repaint would happen. I'm very happy!
Red Baron looks awesome too! Wonder what his name is? If they would have made him an Autobot, we could have had a Windbreaker (little Reverb repaint bike) Beachcomber and Powerglide.
Ktulu
Unless he has a new head sculpt I'm out. I almost really dig that mold but the face looks like it's melting or something.
eagc7
yay beachcomber!!
ghowildseven
Sure looks like it.
Mr. Sparklebot
Damn, do want the Red Baron and Beachcomber.

I'll overlook Beachcomber having guns - I'll just pretend they're heavy duty squirt guns, and that he moonlights as a car wash.
Autobot Burnout
Shoot, I have yet to get Dune Runner, but now I need his repaint.

At this rate, I'll have my own little army of S7 Buggies!
Ceasar121
If he has a Beachcomberesque head, he's bought on sight.
Beastbot X
Have always liked Beachcomber's colors, so this is a no-brainer.

Watch him be named something like Prowl.
ORIO
Thats pretty cool. But the only reason I would get that would be to stick with classics and thats what Legends Beachcomber is for
Luxor
wow, Im glad I passed on ransack and dune runner. Biiitchcomber is mine!!!
Sso02V
Dammit, every time I skim past the forums, I read this as "Revenge of the Fallen Bonecrusher" and get my hopes up.
Feralstorm
Not bad, but it's looking more and more like I'll never see an official Beachcomber repaint of Cybertron Hardtop.
Nemesis Liger
*pumps fist* W00t! Looks like my wish for a Dune Runner Beachcomber repaint will be coming true. Awesome, he and "Red Baron" will be bought on sight.

Heh I bet if that mold was a frigging voyager or ultra we would've seen it for Universe, they seem pretty keen on making little guys huge ass Cybertron clones
