Hasbro has come out and released a massive batch of high quality images of pretty much all the Transformers characters to be featured in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
These new pictures finally show us all of the Constructicons which act as components that combine to form Devastator. We also get a better look at Soundwave, the Autobot Twins (Mudflap and Skids) as well as as new jet fighter called Breakaway.
It goes without saying that if you consider seeing the ‘bots before the movie spoilers, there are MASSIVE picture spoilers below.
I like the updated versions of the characters from the first movie – I’m glad they’re doing a lot more than just re-releasing those figures. This comes as no surprise as Hasbro is trying to lure the collectors into re-purchasing all the characters they already purchased the first time around.
To start, here is another look at Devastator and a first look at the Constructicons:
Demolisher in vehicle mode
Rampage in vehicle mode
Long Haul in vehicle mode
Hightower in vehicle mode
Mixmaster in vehicle mode
Scavenger in vehicle mode
Scrapper in vehicle mode
Now we know what that thing (Demolisher) at the end of the teaser trailer really is. These pictures also reveal that there are in fact seven Constructicons in the movie.
Next, we have an updated and more detailed version of Starscream as well as a look at several modes that Soundwave transforms into:

Starscream appears to have a new paint design and as a figure, he’s much improved over his version for the first film. The images of Soundwave don’t reveal much new from what we posted here before about his first reveal.
Last but not least, we have the Autobots new and old. The one notable addition here is Breakaway whom I haven’t heard being a part of this movie. If he is, the Autobots will have a flyer of their own to compete with Starscream.

I really don’t get why the twins Mudflap and Skids look like they’re inbred with their distorted and asymmetrical faces. The biggest improvement compared to the toy line from the first movie definitely goes to Optimus and my favorite of the bunch is Ironhide.
Also take note of Optimus’ swords. In the first movie he used his sword only once which didn’t make much sense as he didn’t make use of it in his final showdown with Megatron. This time around, I hope they fix that.
The only characters I can think of that were not included in this release are Barricade, Arcee, Ravage, Jolt, The Fallen, Jetfire, Wheelie and Skorponok. The only ones we’ve not seen at all are Arcee and Jetfire so stay tuned for more!
