Images and review of Hunt for the Decepticons The Fallen with Spear

Posted on 08-10-2010 at 01:29 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)

2005 Boards member Megatroptimus has shared a selection of images and a summary of changes with the new version of The Fallen that is coming soon in the next assortment of Transformers Hunt for the Decepticons Voyagers. The new version of Fallen who comes with his spear also features a new deco of blue and teal, with an extremely detailed and poseable head (mounted on a balljoint). The face can of course be removed, and Megatroptimus has shared with us some nice close up images of both of the new faces. To top it all off, this version of The Fallen has new hands to hold his spear.

Click on the title of this story to check out the images and share your opinions.

Pic added in the first post!
Valkysas
Thanks. That looks so much better than the flipper things the original has.

Awesome, thanks for the review!

is the staff rubbery?
Shadow25
Like all the new additions but this color scheme is so unnecessary. Why is that Hasbro downright refuses to do him in movie accurate colors? Only the Legends class has the gunmetal gray.

Totally agreed, if this was colored liked the Legends class I'd probably buy it, but as it is...I'm thinking I'll pass.

Plus this mold is in dire need of ball jointed hips and ankles.

Btw, slightly related to this character... How come in the movie there were only a certain number of Primes (including the Fallen), yet when The Fallen ends up on Earth, there's quite a bunch of "bad" Primes attacking the humans with him? Doesn't that mean that all early Transformers looked the same, including the Primes?

Based on the differences alone, I might have to pick this up but probably only when it's on sale.

The character models are completely different. Those are just generic decepticons that hadnt scanned earth modes.
megatroptimus
Ok, my memory completely failed this time.
Powersa
why does this thing reminds me of Alpha Trion or whatever his name is
ErechOveraker
That's the way to do a repaint. Had no interest in the previous version of this mold, but those colors and the additional changes make this a buy.
ectoneon
I'll prolly get this one. The changes make it worth buying doubles, and I actually kinda dig the new color layout.

Why does it remind you of the purple, red, and white elderly Autobot with the beard? Uh.... no clue.

Prelude:

I should mention that, as of right now, no one really knows if this figure here is going to come with some kind of fancy new name. I should also mention that I originally bought him in order to canibalize him (hands, head, the staff...) - but I won't do that now.

Alternate Mode:

The Fallen still transforms into the alien dreadnought-type space craft he used to, but now he carries Lugnut-colors, very cool! This alternate mode doesn't have any gimmicks or such and I've yet to find a place to stash his staff, but I'll keep looking.

Robot Mode:

Here I must admit one thing: Hasbro, if you take your time to do something right, you really do it right - WOW!

The new head is a 100 percent match for the one seen in the movie and doesn't spare the details. Also, you can take off the mask, revealing the tormented visage of the Fallen after he enjoyed Optimus Prime's special face peeling technique. Additionally this new Fallen finally has proper, posable hands, able to grasp and hold his new war staff.

Did I mention that the head is fully posable? No? He is! The poses are the bomb, so I will not subject Lugnut... eh, I mean, the Fallen to the custom builder's death.

Friggin sweet. He'll get bought now, tho I may hold out hoping for a more screen accurate paint scheme.
Auto Morph
Need to get rid of the Decepticon insignia, then it'll be in my movie line as one of the Primes.
Dormamu
Excellent pics and review. He needs a black cape very badly, because all he continues to remind me of is the Skeleton King from 'Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go!'.
SLAYERBOT13
Keep the mask on him. Love the colors and new features but the normal head eats ass badly
ThinkTank Customs
Nice, but yours is nor really a Review mote a list of differences, and thank you that you could solve the thing with the staff, thanks!
megatroptimus
I reviewed all the differences.

Took me quite a while to find where and how to store the staff...
ThinkTank Customs
I'll post a Review for Insecticons and Highbrow too, at the last one you've mistransformed his Legs So i can give you a lil' help back.

Thx again, you'r great
megatroptimus
On Highbrow? The legs and feet are correctly transformed.
ThinkTank Customs
No, He has Chickenlegs and Clawfeet, blieve me, i show it to you in a few hours when I'm @ home
Sol Fury
That could be more like Mindwipe then, where both styles were equally possible depending on your preference.

Since we've not seen instruction scans or official images yet, who is to say which of the two variations is correct?
megatroptimus
You just need to look at the toy to realize he has regular legs. The indentations on the hips would have no purpose in a chicken leg configuration, they're there to allow the hip panels to move in closer. Plus, turning the legs around would make no sense as the pale blue paint apps on the legs are clearly meant to be seen in robot mode as they match the chest and forearms. Putting them on the back would mean those paint apps serve no purpose in both modes (under the plane and behind the robot).
Takara_destron
I did not realise his face came off. This is awesome.
MekaGojira3k
Cool additions to the mold, but ugly color scheme.
Mechafire
Looks pretty cool. Might get it and have it be a Prime instead of The Fallen.
encline
THAT IS ONE UGLY COLOR.... but the new hands and face are nice.
Shatterpoint
Best retool EVAR !
shibamura_prime
I know the chances of a movie repaint of this guy down the road are pretty good, but I'll be picking this up anyways because his color scheme is just too awesome for words.
mitchsantona
Wow. It would suck to have this mold in any colors close to the movie. Why? Why? Why?
Bumblebee92
I take back what i said about it before ill buy it!!!!!!!! this is most likely the closest thing we will get to a leader fallen but thats what i said about starscream
jackgaughan
So can i has face?
Nerdicon
i'm digging the "jedi ghost" colors on him. Should've been clear plastic though.
AutoBobby
So we've had the "Burning Fallen",and now we get the "Freezing Fallen".
megatroptimus
His colors = Cybertron Cryo Scourge

1. Why in God's name didn't the first Fallen figure look like this??
2. If they were going to make the figure this awesome, why not paint in in movie-accurate deco?

Seriously, whoever makes the final decisions at Hasbro should be fired.

1. I suspect that they had very little time to design it the first time around. Now they had all the time in the world to perfect it.

2. To avoid confusion with the original version I guess, maybe they think gun-metal grey is too close to dark green from a distance to the casual buyer?

This and stores don't want to oreder the same thing. At least in my area, the first version of the fallen is still readily available. A different color scheme "tricks" stores and casual buyers into thinking its something all new. Stores don't want the same product they ordered last year.
Backscatter
Cyrotek Fallen, at least it's a recolor retool. Dumb but I want it.
tfan123
1: I will get this mold, but paint it more movie accurate.
2: UNLESS this isnt the fallen but a prime. Then i will get two, one for the prime and one for the fallen.

the causual buyert is some 8 yr old's parents. and all parents hear is "mommie i want so and so" and when hasbro releases too many repaints, the parents tend to depend on what the package says and if that doesnt work, their kids favorite color.
jestermon
I love these guys, they remind me of the original Ninja Turtle toy line's Foot Soldiers.

And I still haven't seen any one do the Horatio pose with Optimus and the Fallen's head, that will show up soon I suppose.
Dolza_Khyron
cyro scourge is what i see. or what ever the repaint was called lol
Ironhide9012
i sense many custom repaints of this figure in the near future,quite an improvement from the ROTF fallen but hasbro yet again fails in color and joints,but aside from the color scheme im actually cool with this re-mold. These kinds of re-molds have been used on recon ironhide,cannon BB and the pistol sideswipe,i wonder what other re-molds are yet to come?
