New Galleries: Combiner Wars Legion Class Ultra Magnus, Skywarp, and Cliffjumper

New Galleries: Combiner Wars Legion Class Ultra Magnus, Skywarp, and Cliffjumper

Legends - Another gallery for the weekend, featuring some ambiguously placed Generations Legion figures of Ultra Magnus, Skywarp and Cliffjumper. Why ambiguous? Not only do these go almost hand in hand with the galleries we posted yesterday of Motorbreath and Thundercracker, they also sport the Generations Combiner Wars packaging and logo, though without the Combiner Wars banner. At the same time, they are simple repaints, much like two figures in yesterday's galleries, of the Optimus Prime, Starscream and Bumblebee that were re-released with Age of Extinction. Just to make it clearer for everyone.
New Galleries: Combiner Wars Cyclonus and Galvatronus

New Galleries: Combiner Wars Cyclonus and Galvatronus

Cyclonus - Our latest figure gallery features an unexpected repurposing of a previous wave figure: feast your eyes below on Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Voyager Cyclonus! The figure is a fairly significant remold of the Silverbolt toy, featuring a new head, torso, paint job, wings - and an entirely new combiner head, ready to form an almost Decepticon leader - Galvatronus, nemesis to fan-built Victorion and possessor of mind-bending powers.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"

Character Piece - Welcome to the latest episode of the Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your no-longer-on-the-market host ScottyP, site owner and photographer extraordinaire Seibertron, Not-Optimus RodimusConvoy13, and the late (to the show) Jon3.0. On this episode we start out by catching up on some comic talk. The not-quite latest issue of More Than Meets The Eye kicks things off, as we take a rather long time to catch up on the dastardly(?) deeds of the DJD.
New Galleries: Q-Transformers Optimus Prime, Megatron, Nemesis Prime, Hound and Bluestreak

New Galleries: Q-Transformers Optimus Prime, Megatron, Nemesis Prime, Hound and Bluestreak

Q-Transformers - We have some more exclusive toy galleries, featuring some more superdeformed Takara Tomy Q Transformers!

New Gallery: Transformers Adventures TAV-14 Ultra Magnus

New Gallery: Transformers Adventures TAV-14 Ultra Magnus

Ultra Magnus - Seibertron has been hard at work to bring you new galleries today, first of Transformers Adventures TAV-13 Nemesis Prime and now TAV-14 Ultra Magnus! The figure originates from the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters line, but sports a brand new paint scheme to dazzle the eyes. We invite you take a closer look at this fella and stick around to browse our Galleries, join the Conversations, and keep up to date with all your Transformers News at!
