Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Deluxe Class Ripclaw

Holy packaging errors Batman! Thanks to an error-packaged Beast Hunters Soundwave picked up at retail by 2005 Boards member Yobuster, we have confirmation of our third Predacon in the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters mainline! Ripclaw, a character previously featured as a Kre-O building set release, will also be getting a Deluxe Class toy as a part of what is assumed to be Beast Hunters Deluxe Wave 2. Ripclaw features a pretty nifty looking dragon mode, and in robot mode, she features a pretty awesome battle claw on her right arm. Yes, you read that right - Ripclaw's bio, shown on this cardback, also confirms she will be a female Predacon villain for the Autobots to fight.

Check out the cardback scan by clicking on the thumbnail attached to this story, with massive thanks to Yobuster for sharing it with us all!

Whaaaaaaaat?
Deceptigtar
lol whooops!

did you open it yet? maybe they put ripclaws instructions in there too.
Bountyan
Hahahaha what? That's a pretty big screw up. Figure looks cool though. Nice to have a female character that isn't a twig.
bignick1693
Cool looking figure. Will pick up when wave 2 comes out.
jackgaughan
His colours remind me of the Dinobots' colour scheme, Hmmmm.
Spiderus Prime
Ripclaw is a Girl?
Shatterpoint
I had a feeling Ripclaw was a fembot.

EDIT: She looks a helluva lot like Ser-Ket.
Chris McFeely
"HER"? Did we know that? I didn't!
Noideaforaname
Wow, is it just the back? Wonder how that got thru?

And yay, a fembot that doesn't look totally supermodel-ish.

Hey that's the character from Rage of the Dinobots with a different color scheme for some reasons. And she's a femme? Interesting I thought Ripclaw was a male in the comic.

EDIT: Never mind the character that's in the comic is Ser-Ket. Although she does look a lot like him. Maybe she's his twin sister?

Quick! Retcon every character ever named Ripclaw to female on the wiki!

Oh wait, there's not any. Continuity is safe after all!
AutobotMirage
That looks awesome!!! Great to see more fembots, cant wait to get this one!
Soundwavedotm
Reminds me of ser-ket from the comic, think a ser-ket repaint and new head in robot mode is on the way :-)

Different character but similar design, the comic guy is ser-ket

Ripclaw looks great! At least from the pics a lot better looking than Laserback. That's a pretty cool error there. Looking forward to wave 2 now.
blackout501st
Well I'll be damned! That's a pretty amazing factory error. Ripclaw is looking really good. Looks a ton like ser-ket from ROTD. Wonder if she's a repaint of him? Either way, pretty stinking cool we've got a fembot predacon. I dig it!
Sockie
Wait, what's that IDW thing on the back of the box?
Sol Fury
Whoo-hoo! Very nice! Thanks for sharing this with us Yobuster! I love finding out about new toys like this, there's a thrill of discovery you just don't get when it's all official press releases or poor, blurry photos of stolen test-types.
Grimlockimus
What about the instructions? Were they Soundwave's as well? And any new figures listed on the little "Also Available" thing on the bottom?

Ripclaw looks like a halfway decent figure too, I'm curious to see who her wave-mates are.
Sumner Sturgeon
Colour me interested! Always happy to see more of these new Predacons, even more so one that's a girl AND has a cool design.
JetFormers
Huh..I might actually pick this one up when it gets released.
Secretcode
Looks like I made the right decision deciding to only get the beasts in this line, digging the aesthetics in robot mode.
Veloxiraptor
I wonder if these characters are going to have any speaking parts...
Metroplex79
At first glance I thought it was the alien creature that hatched from the asteroid egg in G1's "The Secret of Omega Supreme".



HeroicC300
Anyone notice that she's Deluxe No. 6 in the line?

Smokescreen as No. 5?
Driskull98
Finally a female Predacon/Decepticon that's NOT a Mary Sue Spider Bitch.
Digilaut
Hey, that's a character (model) used in Rage of the Dinobots! Yay.

I have to say, these beasts actually look pretty cool. Way cooler than the spikey Autobots, who are just the same figures but with added stuff.

These are great news for people who love Beastformers. Not sure if I will ever pick any up, but if I would, I could see myself just go for the beasts and not the Bots & Cons.

I know, I can't stand Blackarachnia.
Smasher
Aside from the obvious Photoshop, that's a good looking figure.
Yobuster
Just to answer a few questions of fellow boardies:
- no i haven't opened Soundwave up yet, the inset sheet is the Soundwave sheet, the cross-sells at the bottom are just the wave1 cross-sells.

- Yes Ripclaw is #6 in the set.
BaltMatrix
Very interesting. Thanks for sharing!!!

Stupid question though. Are all the Perdicons going to be based on dragon-like beasts?
citoria
Are we sure this line is Beast Hunters and not Dragon Hunters?

Not that I am complaining, I would love a Predacon team of just dragons! So far we are up to 3!
ssjkazer
Another dragon please let there be more i would love a team of dragons
Kaijumaster
huh, so Far Beast Hunters has not been that impressive to me personally.
Guess I'll just bypass the majority of this line for the time being, just as well, I've repainted too many wheeljacks for my Con shelf to have much more space.
The Swordsman
Now that is cool, she looks much better than Lazerback and I definitely hope she's in the show.
Grimlockimus
We'll hopefully hear more about her and the rest of wave 2 at Toyfair in February.

What I'm predicting though is this:

Deluxes Wave 2
-Smokescreen
-Ripclaw
-Spikey Arcee

Voyagers Wave 3
-Spikey Bulkhead
-Insecticon
-Grimlock (I can dream)
Lord Zodiak
can't wait for that!!!
MechaV
Nice, a lady dragon.

She looks almost exactly like the Predacon Ser-ket in that Rage of the Dinobots mini-series that's out right now.

Bought on sight.
Grimlock_13
Cool, nice to see more Beasts coming out since they're the only releases in BH I'm interested in.
Foster
Not bad. I am still hoping for more G1 Terrorcon homage toys though.

One question, does it have the tech specs of Soundwave or Ripclaw?
Anguirus
Why it's a goil! That's always nice to see (listening Hasbro?).

Funny that Ser-Ket borrows a character model from a toy (show?) character without being her. Making you wonder if he's going to escape his comic series alive. Grimlock isn't a merciful sort.
Niv3k
That's unexpected!
Does the front show Soundwaves name and such?
Karhukjnsi
That is Ser-Ket's body!
soundwaverulls
Wow, that's a pretty big error. While this isn't the best picture I'm judging by, this might be the coolest looking new mold, after Weaponizers Predaking.

Wait, "she"! So we finally get another female TF who doesn't look it. I hope she's in the show. A big, black and yellow female Transformer. Not a pink one or a tiny bike.
Shatterpoint
Was Ser-Ket's gender ever specified in Rage?

I mean "he" is named after the egyptian goddess Serket.
shroobmaster
That is the best fembot design ever and I need it.
Thundershot
What are the cross sell figures on the package??
Grimm
WOW, very intersting...
