Transformers.com Updates to Beast Hunters - new Predacon Vertebreak Revealed

The official Transformers website has updated to its new Beast Hunters theme, and with it comes some rather interesting new material! There is a "choose your own adventure" style game where you jump into the action exploring Shockwave's lab following the "urgent transmission" promo spot, as well as a rather fun Rampage clone where you play as Predaking trashing city blocks. There's also a "beast creator" minigame.

The "choose your own adventure" spot has some fun extras too in the form of character profiles, revealing a new Predacon character. His name is Vertebreak and he is a tiger-striped Lazerback redeco. His bio is as follows:

"The powerful Vertebreak wants nothing more than to smash the Autobots and all who stand with them!"

Other character bios are also revealed as you play the game!

Check this and all the other goodies out at the official Transformers homepage, Transformers.com

Vertebreak is an awesome name.
Nope
That's the best damn name.
kaijuguy19
Wait we saw something like that in the Beast Hunters guide book named Scourge didn't we? Is this a new character or a new name for the same remold?
Chris McFeely
Damn, who says there's no good new Transformer names anymore? That's awesome.
Galvanitro
Posted up the pictures!
Stardust262
Well, that's number 12 of 16.


Though what happened to Scourge?
Thundershot
What about Scourge?
Nope
Very nice! I already have Lazerback, but this guy has great colors.
Mechafire
The figure itself is kinda meh, but I might get it cuz of the name.
Shatterpoint
O hai Bantor.
Noideaforaname
I don't know what I like better, the name "Vertebreak" or that crazy color scheme.
orangeitis
I'm loving these colorful dragons. These can't be on shelves fast enough.
Ironhide1706
Best. Name. Ever. I'll buy that just for the name.
Dinobot Nuva
Bantor-ish = very yes.

Where is Scourge?
Stubot
is he supposed to be some sort of Baboon?
cos he looks sort of Baboonish around about the face
mx-01 archon
Hrm, wish I'd seen this before I bought Lazerback. That's a way cooler colourscheme.
Lbsammills51
Fucking great name all the way, and I like the deco. Very cool.

Is that who its deco is referencing? There was something familiar about it but I couldn't put a finger on it.
MechaV
Woah, wait, where are you guys seeing this on the site?

I can't find it.

Agreed. Lazerback is cool but not a real big fan of the colors. This one is much cooler looking.
kaijuguy19
So I'm guessing this is one of the last 5 deluxes we're getting for BH so far and possibly along with Scourge which makes three left. The last three may be Arcee,Knockout and maybe Hardshell.Vehicon,or Airachnid.

You have to go into the game thing and access the terminal.

Cool seeing all of the Legends/Leigions in there too... Looks like they plan on sticking with them remaining only in that size. Micromaster Predacons!

The lack of Scourge worries me though...
Galvanitro
Updated with bio and signature weapon.

It can be found on Beast Hunter's mini-site:

Perhaps they meant to have this guy instead of Scourge and they accidanlty messed up the guide book.
Maximo Prime
Love the name and color scheme. love bantor. Looks like i'm getting this guy. Plus those are some scary weapons...
Sol Fury


The powerful Vertebreak wants nothing more than to smash the Autobots and all who stand with them!

So, there's one more Predacon thrown into the mix, and not the Scourge redeco after all. Hmm...
General Tekno
AWESOME name.

Makes me curious about the Scourge remold though - maybe they're saving it for down the line?
deliciouspeter
Verteback / Laserbreak
Sideways77
That name. Now that's a fucking BRUTAL name.

I'm buying him.
bman29
That looks sweet! I like that better than the other version. But I can't seem to find it on the site. Whoever they got to voice Ratchet on there sounds like something from a old radio play.
Jetbolt
Works for me, any Predacon is a instant buy for me.
Escargon
Oh god that name.

Awesome. That and he's basically Bantor.
Josh
i think ill name my first born Vertebreak

its that amazing
jop
I believe there is a very strong possibility that someone at Hasbro is a fan of the Vertebreaker.
Snake_eyes1975
Vertabreak?!?!

Give the guy that made that up a raise.

Why all the ?? About scourge? Wasn't that shown in that book as a laserback or ripclaw repaint?
shroobmaster
But I JUST GOT LAZERBACK! I can't buy a repaint s-okay okay I will calm down Hasbro put the gun down.
tusko
Its a dragon with freekin' lazers on it.
SG hailstorm
i think i like vertebrak over laserback
bman29
Somebody with enough gumption, could turn that into a bumblebee motif Waspinator.
soundwaverulls
YES! I was hoping they'd repaint Laserback with better colours and those do look better.
Escargon
The toys of Prime are pretty good, for coming from an (IMO) crappy TV show.

thanks

at least someone bothered their arse to tell me what it is
IaconStargazer
Vertebreak - I've repeated it in my head dozens of times, because I can't get over how crazy-awesome a name that is!
Digilaut
Had to look up what a vertebrae actually is..now that I know, that name is pretty fricking awesome Is it a new name for what could have been Breakneck, similar to how Sinnertwin is now Twinstrike?...
Autovolt 127
Vertebreak. Now that's an amazing new name.

His deco looks real snazzy too. Tigerprint...oh my god. What if he's Bantor out to exact his revenge on Ratchet?
Galaxy Convoy
Awesome name, but meh on the color scheme. Way too similar to Lazerback, color palette-wise. Should've gone for something a bit more different if they expect people to buy this mold 3 times at $17 each.
Galvatron Rage
Apparently, it's an overwhelming consensus that the name KICKS ASS!
Puck Hockey
First impression: Dat name!
Second impression: Meh, a redeco.
Third impression: Woah! Dat deco!
