Three More FABs Toys, Three More Bios

TF08.net, via Seibertron.com, has posted the back of the Fast Action Battler cards for Ratchet, Long Haul (a Constructicon), and Jetfire. Each has a bio that begins with "Around the world, the Autobots battle in secret to destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons. Little do they know that an even deeper threat is about to arise..." then gets specific for that character. Of note is verification of Jetfire's character arc of a reformed Decepticon. Pictures are below the bios. Thanks to Katsuhono for the link.

An additional note, the blog logo has been updated thanks to Eoin. Hope you like it, makes it little easier I hope for people to know they landed in the right place for all their movie inforamtion.

Ratchet FAB Bio:
After learning from Ironhide that more Decepticons had been detected on Earth, Autobot Ratchet immediately began research into how best to upgrade his weapons. After two months in his workshop, he developed a new particle beam blaster. Now he needs to find a Decepticon to test it on.
Long Haul FAB bio:
Long Haul never talks, unless he's going to complain about something. The other Decepticons expect him to carry all their stuff, but he'd rather be fighting than transporting a bunch of missiles and laser cannons. He likes to let other robots' gear bounce out of his truck bed, and then tell them it got "lost" on the way.
Jetfire FAB Bio:
After remaining hidden for years, Jetfire is ready to rejoin the fight! He realized the error of the Decepticon way a long time ago. Now, he fights alongside the Autobots, hoping to use his ancient strength to bring his former comrades to justice!

  2. Very nice for being simpler FAB versions. Is Long Haul getting a regular line toy? And now we've seen Legends Jetfire, and FAB Jetfire, where the heck is Leader Jetfire? Looking forward to it.

  4. so that's why ratchet wasn't on some regular autobot runs (the videos of the autobots driving on some cities), he is on his lab doing works on his new weapon.

  7. I'm a little amazed that Long Haul looks just like the nearly concept art that was released over a year ago, I was hopeful, but I thought it had been debunked.

  8. Cool! I like Ratchets auto upgrade.

  9. It's seeming to unfold that the jetfire story is very similar to that of skyfire from the original g1 cartoons.

    If so Skyfire was a fairly powerful autobot, Lets hope the story follows suite because it's looking like the autobots are going to need all the help they can get!!!

  10. I think the reason we didn't see Ratchet's Hummer on set much is b/c he spends most of the movie robot form fixing all the autobots who get their ass's handed to them!

  14. "It's seeming to unfold that the jetfire story is very similar to that of skyfire from the original g1 cartoons."

    That's because they are one and the same. He was known as Skyfire in the animated G1 series, but in the comics and toy line he was known as Jetfire.

    There doesn't seem to be any really amazing reason for this, but it's probably for the same reasons that "Devastator" somehow showed up in the first Transformers film.

  15. Am i the only one wondering why Jetfire`s box clearly says he used to be a decepticon a long time ago but he got over it. Or something like that. Surely this means he is an autobot straight from the begining of the film!

    Also the head on Jetfire looks too rediculous even worse than ROTF Wheelie

    ReplyDelete
  16. im kinda worried bout the whole look of jetfire so i hope he looks better in the movie.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm thinking that Jetfire, like the Fallen, has been on Earth longer than any of the other TFs. As indicated by his bio, Wheels/Wheelie/Whatever the RC car is called is the traitor.

    Screw you and your Pentagon Vector Prime!!!

    PENTAGON

    It's just FAB, no wonder that he looks so... Simple/uncomplex/stupid...

  24. Regarding Jetfire's looks:
    His stature will look totally awesome in the movie, this is just a simple toy.
    What makes me feel worried is his face. Is it a faceplate or will the lines across his chin move awkwardly when he speaks?
    My inner eye shows me his face moving like he has a mustache (spelling?), and that would be stupid beyond stupidity.

  25. here is josh nizzi's long haul concept art that we saw earlier (i read that it was revealed when the first movie was still rolling in cinemas?)

  26. is Hound in the movie or not ? I read an article where it clearly says he's in the movie.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have been looking at the trailer and the toys and I can't get out of my mind how similar the "Fallen" and Jetfire look the same. Specially in the legs. Jetfire was holding the landing gear to hit Scorpinok and I think he was using his own landing gear.

    I read an article, where they said that Unicron will be in the movie, so, you know...

  29. I like how Ratchet's door just doesn't seem to match his paint job (being all dark green)... It looks like he was in an accident and they replaced the door with another hummer door from the Armies Junkyard...

  33. i hope that is not the final transformation.

    a bit too phallic for me.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Jetfire looks like a frog. They should have used the other guys artwork.

    Anyway i have a competition inspired by Josh nizzi`s artwork for more details and rules go to the following link (10th post down):

    Dude, just say "F*** you" to this FAB figures, and wait for the Deluxe and Leader class... I really don't know, why people care for those simple toys...

    ReplyDelete
  36. The only thing I dont like is that the package for Jetfire says his skill is at a 5. For being old as he is he has to have some kick ass skills.

    ReplyDelete
  37. to above poster,

    yeah i don't care about the small toys either, just hoping that it is really off the mark for how the movie version looks (as the small ones usually are.)

    ReplyDelete
  38. After two months in his workshop, he developed a new particle beam blaster.

    I want to see Ratchet's workshop in this movie.

    Ok, how many type of TF figures are out there?

    New Animated
    Universe
    FAB
    Deluxe
    Leader Class

    These are the ones I can think of as I don't collect them (yet).

    What line would this one belong too?
