History Lesson - We decided to change it up this week and start off with your listener questions! We received two questions that brought us down memory lane and even made us put our thinking caps on! The Windblade comic has finally came out and the response from the fans seem pretty good... but what does the cast think? Next up we dive into the latest Age of Extinction galleries that have been posted to Seibertron! We also have some awesome news that just came from the Takara camp ... a G1 deco Slug! Does this mean more G1 deco dinobots are in the works? New images of Takara's "Movie Advanced" line have surfaced and we discuss our thoughts on this new figure line. Closing out our toy talk...we saved the best for last... it's TANKOR! Photos were taken at JoeCon 2014 that showed us some of the new head sculps for this year's club toys. We are pretty excited for one of these guys, but you'll have to tune in to hear what we thought of the rest! Now, is anyone surprised that subscription figures have been delayed until late May? We close out talking about some bragging rights.

New Gallery: Age of Extinction Generations Deluxe Crosshairs

Crosshairs - Our newest Seibertron.com gallery features one of the newest movieverse recruits: Crosshairs! His beautiful vehicle mode is based on a modified Chevy Corvette C7, dressed in a snazzy looking black and green deco. His robot mode looks like a cross between a spy and spec ops with the cool 3-D looking goggles adorning his head on top of his already sneaky and sleek design. Let our gallery whet your whistle while you wait for this figure to be released. Click here for the gallery and to join our discussion.

This Deluxe-class fella, along with fellow Dinobots Slash and Strafe, is a new entry to the universal Dinobot roster, transforming into a red Spinosaurus with a optics of a homicidal maniac heroic Dinobot.

Seibertron.com Feature Article: To Parts-form or Not to Parts-form

Posted 16 hours ago by Burn - 5,623 views

One of the things I saw being discussed in the Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-22 Ultra Magnus thread was the fors and againsts of parts-forming. For those unsure of what parts-forming is, it requires one or more parts to be removed from a Transformers mode and reattached to create the other mode. G1 figures are the main example, from having to attach fists (Seekers, Optimus Prime), a complete disassemble and reassemble (Omega Supreme) or feet, fists and chest pieces - Read More
