Bound Rogue is a Cybertron warrior in the TransFormers Robot Masters line of toys from Takara. Released only in Japan, this toy includes a weapon that also acts as a launcher for his beast mode and an exclusive silver chrome blaster rifle.
This mold was originally used in the USA for Beast Wars Snarl and then later in Japan for Beast Wars II's Tasmania Kid. The mold has received no significant changes, but the coloring is vastly different-- while the two Beast-era uses were brown, this new one is a striking blue color.
This toy came packaged in regular Robot Masters packaging, which is fairly intricate. Inside a box, there's a couple of plastic inserts and twist ties to hold the figure and its weaponry in place.
Like all Robot Masters, the set includes Generation One-styled TransFormers logos as well as faction symbols similar to that era.
For your amusement, here's the lineup of Cybertron warriors available as of the last revision of this page.
