    Hi Everyone,

    Picked up my set of TF Prime Beast Hunters wave 1 today. Picked up deluxe Soundwave, Wheeljack, Bumblebee and Laserback. Great figures.
    And as i was admiring the figure i turned Soundwave's packaging around and i realised they got the wrong filecard/backing.

    Instead i see Deluxe Class Ripclaw. Picture attached for proof. Not sure if this was announced before but a quick search of the forums didn't show any.


    Hope this is news for everyone!

    To answer some boardies questions
    - The tech specs is Soundwave's. The tech spec is the inset sheet/cardboard inset which shows soundwave's name. The cross sells are all wave 1
    - The front of the packing card is generic, just shows the series name and has a picture of Predaking.
    - all the paragraphs on the back of the packing card for everyone are now 1-2liners, not the full paragraph from before. I haven't opened up any yet so not sure if there is more info on the instruction sheets.
    - hmm not sure if production errors such as these ever go up in value.

    Also added a new larger picture zoomed in of Ripclaw.

    Enjoy

    Hahahaha what? That's a pretty big screw up. Figure looks cool though. Nice to have a female character that isn't a twig.

    I had a feeling Ripclaw was a fembot.

    EDIT: She looks a helluva lot like Ser-Ket.

    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!

    Reminds me of ser-ket from the comic, think a ser-ket repaint and new head in robot mode is on the way :)

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
