Default Universe Dirge, Ratbat, Springer, and Roadbuster New Images

http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-...images-165231/

From a well known auction site. These pictures show the colors of the figures much better than the last ones that surfaced. I'm still saying these are a must buy for the Decepticons

Nice to see Roadbuster


I mean, it's nice to see an under-rated character get a run-out. The new toy itself is a piece of shit.

Dirge is nice, but we really need him (and Thundercracker) in Legends scale to go with the other LOC Seekers.

You know, that mould (I don't remember the name for the character it was originally used for. I'm a bit unrehearsed in "The Unicron Trilogy" stuff) works fairly well as a "humanoid" Ratbat. Though personally, I think it would've suited a Banzaitron more.

Sideways was the man.

And, yeah, I'm with you on Banzaitron.

Compared with Ratbat, I do prefer the Cybertron release.

Apart from Roadbuster really calling for a new head, I'm quite impressed.

I'm really liking Dirge and Roadbuster, two molds I don't have, done up in pretty nice colors.

Evac looks a lot better with Springer colors in my opinion, and I already have and like Sideways (though I haven't actually touched it in...it's been at least three months) so it's possible I'll go them as well. I've liked that Ratbat color scheme on him since I first saw it.

Agreed. The head makes it really jump out that he's a repainted Hot Shot, but aside from that he actually looks a lot like Roadbuster (especially in vehicle mode). Ratbat really impresses me too. As soon as Sideways came out I said he'd make a great Ratbat, and I'm glad that someone at Hasbro agreed with me.

Neither one of the larger figures does anything for me, though, and I'm pretty sure I'd have to import these guys anyway (Target exclusives, no?), so m'eh.

Wouldn't mind Having the Springer though...

The more I look the more I'm interested in both Voyagers and Roadbuster. He'll go well with TFU Whirl. Need to dig that one outta wherever I got him.

Hmm... so, if I get these, I'll have a spare Dirge and Ratbat to give out.

I do wish Roadbuster could have had an alternate head, but the look does come off surprisingly well, even after BotCon Springer. Springer, though, is expected, but I HAVE a Classics Springer.. now what do I do?

(I'm weird in that I only like having /one/ iteration of each character... granted, space is an issue.)

If that does happen, please think of me for Dirge.

Not a problem. Just remind me when the buggers actually come out.

Even though I gave up buying repaints a few years back, if they bring Springer and Ratbat out in the UK, I reckon I'm gonna have to pick them up. They are the BIZNESS.
