On the day Hasbro launched their Transformers: Hunt For The Decepticons online campaign, they announced names of some upcoming 2-Packs carrying special codes required for the game. Throughout the past few weeks we’ve been seeing the newly announced 2-Packs from various conventions.

Today, we’ll get to take a look at three more HFTD 2-Packs...

Rotorwash Rumble - Arcee & Tail Whip
Hunters Rumble - Sideswipe & Barricade
High-Speed Spy Battle - Autobots Skids/Mudflaps & Sideways

Wow, this makes me happy I skipped on the demolisher 3 pack with the twins. But It also makes me hate that I have to buy a crazy taxi barricade to get a new sideswipe. T.T

BB28
miscreant
That Arcee looks fairly like Takara's Elita 1 (?)
Ethereal
Sideswipe looks cool, but I have to buy that ugly-as-sin Barricade to get it?
MekaGojira3k
All terrible, but atleast those of us in the Americas can choose between Hasbro's Elita-1 and Takara's Elita-1 paint schemes.
Kraken
Oooo, I like the Twins/Sideways pack, the deco on the Ice Cream twins looks awesome, much better than in the pack with Demolishor, and it'll give me a spare Sideways to butcher.

Yeah, all three are a pass for me. I appreciate a new character with Tailwind, but hell, why not swap a new head mold for barricade and make Prowl or homage to Micromaster Stakeout or something?
Scorpion
For some reason, the Barricade REALLY appeals to me. Perhaps he causes me to hallucinate when I look at him. Who's to say?
Deceptigtar
barf. lol.

so that yucky barricade is with another sideswipe. and the twins with sideways which makes sense but sideways doesnt look all that different. and why they would pack another pack with sideways is beyond me since he will be with all three legends bike sisters.

the arcee looks to be a lot like the japanese version. maybe those first pics we have always seen have been of the hasbro version? tailwhip interests me.
Transquito
Deadend
I want that arcee, but not that helicopter. T_T
einis
I really thought that barricade was KO swipe looks nice though
and takara elita-1?wow
springerbee
Holy crap. How can Hasbro put these on store shelves thinking they'd sell?
Grimwing
Hunters Rumble is the only one that I have to grab. Because those two molds
are cool car deluxe varients.

Sideswipe Tries out the Allspark Blue.

Will probably get the others as well. Those Ice Cream Twins look even more Awesomely corroded than the Toys R US version. (Just a note that the TRU demolishor pack had a nice decal sheet for the twins for most of the Autobot snowcone and Optimus Pop details you would want.)
ThaConqueror
I may get the Arcee/Tail Whip pack if I can't obtain either of those molds. Hell, I may get it even if I already have normal Arcee, then I can call Pinkcee "Elita-1" and hope that combination will still be possible.

Bollocks to the other two, though.
Dys
Is that a British Police car deco on Barricade? That's outstanding! If I were into the movie aesthetic, I'd be all over it.
Opticron Primal
Wow, the IC Twins look even MORE accurate then the last time. Ecen more tempting. Could use a new Sideways anyway ....
Thundershot
The only multipack I want is the Sideways (don't own the mold) vs the Legends bike sisters (Legends collector)
Optimus Vader
That ICT looks awesome. Everything else looks pretty boring. Except Barricade--not sure what the deal is there.
Abrogate
The Arcee/Helicopter Guy pack is 2 of the worst molds ever in one box, that's a huge pass. The Sideswipe/Barricade pack is 2 decent molds in awful colors, pass. Sideways/Twins... well, I don't care about Sideways, but at least his colors didn't go to shit. And I do like the Ice Cream Truck, it seems this one's going for the "beat up look" of the film. Not bad.
seeker311
I like all 3 packs
Ra88
I love the Icecream Twins repaint, but that Sideways is really disappointing. Would have been better if it was the same as in the Arcee battlepack, but without the battle damage.
Alooulla
Barricade? In a British police livery? I dont remember wanting a movie toy as badly as i want that.
Jason Blue Boost
I'm glad I didn't pre-order Takara Elita-1 now its coming to the U.S. Really only want one out of each pack. Arcee, Sideswipe, and Sideways.
repair_bay
Oooh damn, those are all some fine looking toys. Especially Barricade. I LOVE Barricade and I LOVE G2-y colors. Also, does anyone know what's really changed with Sideways?

BB28
yeah, i hate that too... i was hoping to have every version of sideswipe, but these barely different versions are annoying... and i surely don't need another Barricade... kinda like the twins, but i got the 3 pack from TRU... but gave my cousin the rusty twins, so i may get this, but i don't need sideways... they shoulda repacked them with dead end... and having two multipacks with barely different sideways (if any difference) makes me wonder if Hasbro took back all those sideways that were warming the shelf and repacked some of them into these packs...

and that Arcee repaint looks cool, and even though i heard its a horrid mold, i kinda want the helicopter... guess it'll just depend on what else is out when these drop...

the combination should still be possible...

...what the heck is Barricade wearings?

I'll need to see better pics of these things before I decide to buy em, but so far the only one I'm remotely interested in is the Twins/Sideways set. Mainly because I <3 Sideways. I wish he could be one of the few to get a new movie accurate updated toy, but it'll never happen )=
Megatronwp38
Wow, HFTD's looking like it's full of repaints.

Its filler until the next movie line. Just buy the new few new molds they created and whatever molds you may have missed originally.
The_Black_Sheep
Urgh. Who gave the ok on these bizarre repaints? Someone deserves to get fired for these shockers... *shakes head*

See I feel the exact opposite. Barricade looks awesome for me, but I have to put up with another version of Sideswipe and I absolutely hate that toy! Want to split the set when they come out?

Barricade is the only one that interests me out of the whole group!
eagc7
if they get a worldwide release then i would buy them all!!
Barricade24
Hmm A closer look would help but the only thing here that interest me are those twins the don't get any more dirty than that.

The Barricade is interesting but is a likely pass.

They are going to have a lot of shelf warmers with these.
xanthax
There isn't a single one of these I like. They should just extend the "double your action" give away than vomit up some nasty looking repaints of these guys.
Ravenxl7
Interesting. Each set has one interesting repaint paired with a kinda-fugly repaint. Arcee, Sideswipe, and Sideways are definitely the highlights of these 2-packs. I'd get the Arcee vs. Tail Whip, but I have absolutely no interest in the Blazemaster mold. One copy of the Sideways mold is enough for my collection, and I have no interest in the twin's IC-truck mold. The Sideswipe vs. Barricade one is really the only one of the three I'd consider getting, and even then I probably won't. While I'd like to have a copy of the Barricade mold, the colors seem odd on him (just too bright and too much contrast). While Sideswipe's repaint doesn't look too bad, I'm ok with the one I have, and don't imagine I'll be getting a second copy of the mold.
squawkbox74
Is it me, or do Skids and Mudflap keep getting more and more rusty?
Brainchild
How is the "Rotorwash Rumble" set labeled as "Most Wanted"? Nobody knows who Tailwhip is to begin with, and it's just an excuse to release what I think is the Takara Elita-1. If I'm not mistaken.

Since when has Sideways, shelfwarmer extraordinaire and bane of ROTF multi-packs, been a highlight in anything? Not including the upcoming four-pack with Legends bike trio?

Yet again, he seems to look unchanged at that, but it is a tiny image.
Autobot Burnout
I want that Sideways/Twins set, if only to actually GET the Twins. I don't have a Sideways, so I might just keep him because of that.

Anytime I need cannon fodder, though, he'll be one of the first in line because that toy is pretty bad.
Wheeljack_Prime
So that Barricade WASN'T a KO? Mind blown. Barricade sure ain't a member of the fashion police.

I can't believe they keep making the twins more and more rusty. That's cool and all, but do they have to keep putting them into multipacks?

I think I'll pass on Garishicade and Allspark Sideswipe. The Twins/Sideways pack is a maybe. Arcee/Tailwhip is probably a definite, if only for the Tailwhip deco.

I was talking within the context of just these three 2-packs.

That makes no sense. Boring-ass figure potentially unchanged in any way from the original is a highlight... how?
Oracle_Aesir
OH MY GOD!

Is that Barricade in a British police car colourscheme??

It's my personal opinion. Don't see why it needs to make sense to anyone else. In comparison to how horrible the Skids & Mudflap repaint looks, Sideways is definitely, for me, the highlight of that 2-pack.
bignick1693
pass
Oracle_Aesir
I only want Sideswipe vs Barricade, plus maybe Tailwhip, on his own I mean
Bgrngod
Pass on all but the new character.
