BotCon 2008 - Target Exclusive Comic 2-Packs

Cincinnati, Ohio – In a panel at BotCon Saturday, the Hasbro team unveiled 2 exclusive action figure comic packs available only at Target later this fall. Each of the two sets is themed around a comic book battle and includes a Deluxe figure, a Voyager figure and the comic that inspired the pack.

AUTOBOT ROADBUSTER vs DIRGE

Includes Target 2006 #3
In the comic, AUTOBOT ROADBUSTER fights (and kills) DIRGE in a simulated battle training program. AUTOBOT ROADBUSTER is a member of the Wreckers: an elite AUTOBOT special forces unit. AUTOBOT ROADBUSTER’s mold was chosen because the design team thought it was a perfect match for his original mode—a futuristic off-road vehicle bristling with weaponry.

DIRGE is a redeco of the hard-to-find Voyager STARSCREAM mold from Cybertron, representing DIRGE in his Cybertronian mode.

SPRINGER vs RATBAT

Includes War Within Comic #2
In the comic, SPRINGER confronts RATBAT and berates him for escalating the war on Cybertron by bringing DEVASTATOR into the conflict. Although SPRINGER was originally a triple changer that could change into both a car and a helicopter, design wanted to represent SPRINGER as a helicopter because the Botcon 2007 exclusive SPRINGER converted into a ground vehicle.

RATBAT’s 1986 toy changed from a cassette into a bat. In the comics, he's given a robot mode, converts into a spaceship and is a member of the ULTRACONS, a DECEPTICON splinter faction. RATBAT can also switch his DECEPTICON emblem to the ULTRACON emblem due to the faction-switching ability of the CYBERTRON SIDEWAYS mold for this character.
