The official Transformers Facebook page has uploaded some nice clear official images of the next two assortments of Transformers Prime Deluxe toys. First up is Wave 4 with the Wheeljack remold Dead End, which features a new head and new mold Airachnid. Shadow Strike Bumblebee, a redeco of wave 1 Deluxe Bumblebee, rounds out the assortment. Word is Airachnid will be shortpacked in this assortment so be sure to get in early when you see her!

Then to follow that chunk of awesome up the Transformers Facebook page is also sharing pictures of the Wave 5 Deluxes, Sergeant Kup and Decepticon Rumble. Both are all new molds - Sergeant Kup is a straight-up redeco of Ironhide, but since Ironhide's not been slated for a release in Deluxe class yet, Kup will actually hit retail first. Amazingly the head sculpt does great double duty as both of the gruff older Autobots, in this fan's humble opinion.

Check out all of the images, then click the discuss link below to share your thoughts on our 2005 Boards!

Rumble looks pretty damn amazing, especially the head sculpt, can't wait to have him in hand!

Kup looks a tad underwhelming, no new head sculpt, just a repaint, but just the fact that it's Kup makes me want to buy him.
wolfe
Rumble looks great.
Sinnertwin
Niiiiiice.
Yaujta
Rumble's chest face is nightmare-inducing.
Lbsammills51
Rumble looks great. He looks like he has a face in his chest though.

Kup's okay...I was hoping for a new head too, but I'll still pick it up.
panzerjedi
Everything looks neat - except for the Bee repaint.
Bountyan
Rumble looks awesome. That's got to be the most blatant example of Prime transformers having faces in their chests though.
Maverick Hunter Christian
So... are we still getting deluxe Ironhide?

Most likely in a later wave. He's an easy redeco choice.
Ra88
That mold looks better as Kup than Ironhide. Not really bulky enough to evoke the latter, but for Kup, it looks great.

And Rumble looks fantastic!

Airachnid, Rumble, and Dead End will look with my other Prime Dcons when they finally are release.

I'd assume it'll come in later, if not, there are solicits in for a Japanese release, so either way, an Ironhide version will happen. In fact it might even be that because Takara-Tomy is doing one version, Hasbro is doing the other, to ensure both get released to collectors in some form.

Rumble is my favourite of the bunch. Definite get for me. The chest head is very Gurren Lagann though, and that yellow bit looks like a tongue hanging out. It's... just a little crazy. But I like it.
Ironhide4
How did the repaint of Ironhide get released first, that is ridiculous.
Scantron
Rumble looks pretty cool, although the figure has a ton of shoulder kibble. Kup...eh, it's not terrible, but the mold is clearly intended to be Ironhide so, unless Kup appears on the show (or the only easy way to get Rumble is in a set with him), I'll probably skip it and just wait for Ironhide. Dead End has a much cooler headsculpt than I expected, but not enough to get me to buy the figure. Airachnid's a little plain, so I'm hoping the Takara version has some additional paint applications or something.
TheTFReview
Kup is a pass. I was not impressed with Ironhide's mold.
Kylehudson14
IMO...
Kup just looks like a green Ironhide, not getting unless Ironhide is made
Rumble actually looks pretty cool, maybe a foreshadowing of the character coming to the show?
Dead end is a maybe, it just looks eh
Bumblebee... hell no! Horrible decision
Few small issues with Airachnid, but she looks really cool, slender like on the show

Looking forward to some reviews
TylerMirage
Rumble is boss and Airachnid is pretty sweet.

This is the wrong line to expect that in-- if anything, Arms Micron Airachnid will probably have even less paint.

I was initially a bit bugged by Kup's lack of a new head, but upon closer observation, it seems that the head works equally well as him or Ironhide.
Mechafire
Holy SHIT! Rumble's head sculpt is fucking sweet.

Want everything here except the Bumblebee redeco.
power3921
I wouldnt mind that Kup looks nothing like Kup if he was blue instead of green. Rumble looks awesome though, and his chest is horrifying.
Kevin XI
Kup looks neat, Rumble looks like a Gunman, and Airachnid... the jury's still out on that one. I usually pass on the repaints, esp. Bumblebees.
Bountyan


Only the dead can know peace from this evil
Jlogano20
nice batch of figures (minus yet another damn BB repaint)
Burnout
That KUP coudl almost be a stand in for a Classics Brawn. will be getting that one since it can fit into the classics line.

Right. This is where my confusion is born from. Especially since we've got an extremely similar looking Cyberverse figure trickling out on to shelves.
crewboy7
Hahaha, silly Hasbro, Short-packing the only non-bumblebee show character AGAIN? You're so silly and crazy and I'm laughing so hard right now...
Optimus1138
Airachnid looks decent. I sure hope we get Ironhide here, because my Universe Ironhide could really use replacing.
Lewa1267
Airachnid's weapons reminds me of one of the relics from the show. But she looks boss, as does Kup and Rumble.

It looks like the null ray Knock Out showed Starscream from "Shadowzone"
Optimus Prime
Shadow Strike Bumblebee looks amazing!
Everything else is an easy pass.
Shockwave9227
Rumble - Bought on sight, it looks sweet.
Airachnid - Looks good, will buy.
Kup - A little dissappointed that there isn't a new head for this figure but the Ironhide head seems to work for Kup decently.
Shadow Strike Bumblebee - Pointless, will not buy.
Young Optimus14
To buy another kup or to not....probably not but i will pick up Ironhide just because the mold looks good

I do believe I detect ye ol' Sarcasm

And have much do you want to bet that Rumble is 1 per case.

Nice, lol. Whose face is in Rumble's chest, is the question? Airachnid looks a bit better than initially shown. Not great but a decent effort given what they had to work with using the CGI show model. Rumble looks cool, even if he's not in the show. Kup, Dead End, and Stealth Bee are just blah.
Shark Jumper
screw wave 4, I want wave 5 already. I love Rumble's creepy ganmen face.
Sharktibolt
Airachnid, Rumble, and Kup look fantastic, especially Rumble. Dead End is okay, but I'm still not sure about him.

The only version of that Bumblebee mold I intend to pick up at this point is Hot Shot.
shroobmaster
Rumble is AMAZING, i love the torso's design.

Airachnid is good too, but Kup doesn't look good to me, he just doesn't feel like a Prime design to me.
Surge
Oh man, I need Rumble. Too bad he probably won't be in the show though.
CelticMutt
I must have that Rumble. And I admit, the more I see of Dead End, the more I like him. Still unsure of Airachnid, and don't care about the Bee.

But that Kup ... one it looks bad as Kup, I'm sorry. At least give it a new damn head. And two, I echo the confusion on how the how we're getting the obvious repaint before the original figure (Ironhide).

I just saw an image of the null ray and you're right, that is what Airachnid is holding. Pretty cool I guess.
meirelle
Is it just me, or does Dead End have a movieverse D-con symbol?
theestampede
Rumble looks pretty cool. I was really wanting kup, but I may end up passing to the lack of a new head. The fact that its kup will probably get me to purchase though and maybe I'll get lucky and the igear kup head will both fit and look alright on the body. Dead End is starting to become appealing just because of how rediculous he looks.

Everything else is probably a pass. Much more interested in cybervere and FoC stuff.
ORIO
I really like Dead End's head sculpt. It's just horrifyingly cool. But I hate the colors. I hope we see another use down the road.

Meh on Kup and Bee. Airachnid and Rumble are must buys though!
SPLIT LIP
Man Airachnid is so terrible. Rumble is boss as fuck. Check out that utterly terrifying face chest.

Kup, despite people saying it's obviously Ironhide, looks like a better Kup than Ironhide. Look at that chest. It's Kup's chest. Remove the cannons and it all says Kup.
Ratchets Hatch
Airachnid is only 1x per case, but Dead End the pointless off-screen character is 2x per case? That's messed up.
Shatterpoint
Well now I know Ironhide isn't in the show, HIS HEADSCULPT HAS A NOSE!
Batman
These all look pretty bad to me.

Rumble looks like the worst figure in the entire line. Dude has half of a car hanging off of his shoulders. It's weird because I actually like the show and most of the designs but the toys just don't do it for me at all.
