A pair of threads on the 78dm BBS site have given rise to some in-hand images of the two "bad guys" from Beast Hunters Deluxe Wave 2. There's a pair of images of the Deluxe Starscream, showing him in comparison with the First Edition Seeker mold in the form of Thundercracker and Skywarp. There's also a slightly more extensive look at the female Predacon Ripclaw, again showcasing her with other Prime toys. There's also further images available for the Starscream via HK-TF. We've mirrored a selection of the images with this story, open the links above to check out the original threads.

Nice!
NemiMonkey
Woah a lot smaller then I thought he'd be!

The back of the legs sorry me though. Hollow legs plus less plastic makes me wonder if there will be reports of breakage. Still have no plans on getting him though.

*Edit*
Missed the Ripclaw pics, but I must say she is looking mighty tempting now.
orangeitis
Really? They can't even keep heights consistent within size classes?
Thundershot
I will totally buy that mold...

...if it's redone as a different character. I'm very happy with my FE Starscream.


Oh and to all the people who thought he was a remold...
Mechafire
Still think Starscream looks like trash but Ripclaw is pretty cool.

Wings take up a lot of plastic. So jet formers tend to be a little on the short side.

Ripclaw looks great. Thats a surprisingly articulated tail shes packing. I was expecting maybe two or three hinges and a swivel. Not what looks like multiple swiveling hinge joints.

Have they ever?

Ripclaw looks great. So far him and Predaking are the only beasties I like.

I was talking about compared to the height of FE Starscream... who was also a jetformer.

Starscream and Bulkhead seem to be the only ones that have BH figures shorter than any previous non-Cyberverse version of themselves.

I see what you mean, between the same characters. Yeah, its weird to see two deluxe Starscreams of vastly different heights. :/

Ripclaw looks awesome.

Starscream...not so much.
bobbyjack
Ripclaw is an easy buy. Starscream is an easy pass.
Shatterpoint
Already have my Ripclaw preordered.

Starscream I'll wait for a review on, I still like he way he looks though.
Thundershot
Logic dictates that Ripclaw be repainted into Ser-Ket.



Which means Hasbro won't do it..

Agreed. Looking forward to my Ripclaw pre-order, and looking forward to saving some money by not getting Starscream.
Bossguy
When I saw this I was thinking, "wow, this is great!" Then I got to Starscream. Even though I love Starscream I'll have to pass. That just looks hideous. Ripclaw looks great though! Even though I don't have rage of the dinobots (I could never find them) I hope they do a Ser-ket repaint. That would look beautiful.

Did anybody else notice that most of Ripclaw's sea-foam green is painted on top of red plastic?
fake
Starscream is the only reason, I am not able to preorder the set of 4.
Ra88
That Starscream is just horrible.

Ripclaw looks like a must buy though.
Gilgamesh
Ripclaw looks fantastic and is a must buy now.

Starscream... yeah I need to se more but I'm not liking it so far. Is it mistransformed? If I end up liking it I might repurpose him as another character, but still, I won't buy it unless it's on discount.
shroobmaster
Ripclaw is amazing. Bring on more beasts Hasbro! I'm digging all the dragon fellas.
RatTrap1985
It is turbo ugly, but I am in love with that beast hunters starscream.
The F.N.G.
Ripclaw is possibly gonna be a buy on sight for me. Neat looking figure, maybe the best of the Beast Hunters figs, IMO.

It looks like to be just her dragon head. The red really makes the mouth pop, though.
Noideaforaname
There's actually a lot more pics of Ripclaw here:

Ripclaw looks gorgeously repugnant. I may have to buy her, even though I absolutely detest the basic, stand-up transformation that every Prime Predacon has.

Starscream is just absurdly tiny. And hollow-looking. And I can't stand the fact he just wears the entire jet like a poncho instead of being made of it.
OOSnake
Starscream shrunk in the wash.
TFtoycollector
Here's some more pics of Starscream.

Easy pass for me. Smokescreen's the only one i'm getting from wave 2. Might get Ripclaw if i see her at retail.
Mister Gone
Hmm getting a little tired of the figures that only look good at a certain angle, especially at $17 for a deluxe.
Reaper Cloud
Those extra photos for Starscream made me go from a possible buy to a pass. The whole back of him in robot mode looks bad and hollow. Even the missiles are hollow! -_- Plus he is much smaller in size (while the price for deluxe figures continue to climb), and the colors are vomit worthy. At least he isn't diseased with spikes though, lol. Shame, since I really like Starscream...but this figure won't be on my shelf.
Optimus1138
Ugh... Starscream is TINY and those colors are kind of nauseating. Not at all what Starscream should look like.
Snake_eyes1975
Damn that scream' looks unbelievably horrid.

This is the perfect case where another name should have been used.

Ripclaw does not look as bad as I thought.
DoubleYouTeeEff
Ripclaw looks like Omega Supreme
Thenames9
I didn't even know that was Starscream until I read the title. Looked more like one of the Unicron trilogy toys.
charsdc2
Pass! At $15 apiece and this is the best Hasbro can do? SS can take his nut pincher where it belongs!!!!!
bman29
Ripclaw looks cool in a Dragon mashed up with a bat. Starcream has a insect quality to me. Not sure about any of the color schemes for either one.
charsdc2
On a different note, this figure may also make FE SS jump to like $50+ sealed!
Tekkaman Blade
New starscream looks like it would make a better slipstream than the old mold.
slackerforhire
Really liking Ripclaw. Starscream? Nnnnnotsomuch.
CodeXCDM
Is it me... or do most BH non-Beasts require repainting? I mean really... outside BumbleBEAST and Wheeljack... the decos are... gagworthy.

That said... Starscream looks smaller, but he's a bit bulkier... no longer effeminate either. Probably good to repaint him into another seeker or jetformer.
Ceerad
JCthegreat
can starscream's missiles go on his arms?
Brave Magnus
Ripclaw looks pretty bad-ass!!! Mighty girl i say! And Starscream doesnt look that bad, colors are a bit messy but I am digging the mold!
Smasher
FE Starscream was probably the best of all the Prime Deluxes and instead of just retooling the original mold like they did with Wheeljack, Bee, and Soundwave they made an all new mold that's worse in every way and then painted it in the worst colors possible.

Defies logic.
Dinodigger97
Ripclaw is awesome looking. Totally bought.


Starscream...uhh....looks like shit. His robot mode is small, his jet mode is daft, even his ger-walk mode looks bad. And that's just a plane with arms and legs!

that's a matter of opinion, I quite like the new Starscream, sure he has his flaws, but overall I think that he looks pretty cool, Ripclaw too
Transbot90210
Ripclaw yay. Starscream nay.
Ratchets Hatch
I don't why... but I REALLY like that Starscream. And that's saying something, because I have FE Starscream, and he is as close to perfect as possible.

Maybe it's the colors or the sculpting, but there's something about him that just makes him unique-looking and different.

Ripclaw looks... okay.
