Universe Deluxe Vehicles has Fireflight and Tankor listed. Fireflight is a Basic and Tankor is a Micromaster.

Also, under Universe Mega Vehicles you have Soundwave. He's only an Ultra himself, but he was packaged as a Mega in part of a 2 pack with Spacecase.

On the page for the energon story in the Dreamwave Summer Special there is an error on which characters appear.

http://www.seibertron.com/comics/view.php?comic_id=766

You list Armada Runway, Jetstorm and Sonar as the three Mini-Cons who appear with Kicker, but I noticed that if you look closely in the comic they have a yellow glow and slightly different detailing. They are actually Energon Scattor, Wreckage and Skyboom, the Energon Saber Team. They even turn into the Energon Saber and Kicker wields them. This is the only comic book appearance of these three guys.

I know they are very and hard to tell the difference, but when the combine they start to glow yellow with Energony goodness.

I think you're confused. There are two Tankor's in the Universe line: the Tankor that was released in a two pack with Obsidian, and the Tankor that was part of the Trainbots set. I think the Tankor you're seeing is the first one.

Yes, there are 2 Universe Tankors. One is a Mega Vehicle, one is a Micromaster.

Problem is, on this page of DELUXE sized vehicles, scroll down, and you'll see a guy named Tankor. There is no Deluxe sized Tankor in the universe line.

http://www.seibertron.com/database/list ... oup_id=112

If you click on the link it says the bio of Mega Tanlor, with a picture of Micromaster Tankor, and it says he's a Deluxe! Something got all turned around on this guy.

Oh. I see what you mean. In any event, that's not something I can take care of. I'll contact Ryan later today and have him do something about it.

The Timelines Rhinox page is missing his motto and the bio itself has about 5 spelling errors. Here is the motto and the bio with correct spelling.

http://www.seibertron.com/database/char ... ar_id=3518

"Power in defense of freedom will always triumph over power used for evil."

Looking upon the powerful form of Rhinox, one would imagine he is engineered to be a terrible machine of destruction. However, the truth is, the large MAXIMAL is one of the gentlest souls you will ever encounter. His entire being is focused around the defense of life - from the largest space faring creatures, to the tiniest insect. His function as a defense specialist belies his fearsome appearance, but make no mistake, in combat RHINOX is one of the most brave and potent forces on the battlefield. In robot mode, Rhinox is adept at close quarters hand-to-hand combat, utilizing a brutal style that inflicts maximum damage with minimal movement. His dense armor protects him from most forms of conventional firepower. In vehicle mode, his powerful shovel can lift up to 50, 000 tons. The shovel, composed of a special alloy Rhinox developed himself, reflects most energy weapon's fire back to its source. Often serious, Rhinox does have a congenial sense of humor that is neither mean-spirited nor spiteful. Rhinox is an expert at defensive technology and tactics while also having a vast knowledge of engineering, including weapons development and metallurgy. These are just a few of the reasons OPTIMUS PRIMAL holds Rhinox's abilities and counsel in the highest esteem.

Also, technically he's a "scoop loader" not a "bulldozer". G1 Bonecrusher is a bulldozer. Scrapper is a scoop loader.

This is why I hate having to type these up by hand. Not only does it put a strain on my wrists, but it leads to errors like that. That's why I stopped doing the characters whose bios were part of the Club Comics. (Is there any place out there that's already typed them out?)

Anyways, fixed.

http://www.unicron.com has several of the Dreamwave ones typed in text, mostly Armada.

I checked over a lot of the club/con exclusives, and I spellchecked them. Here are some ones with errors, which I corrected.

Buzzsaw

During the Great War with the Autobots, BUZZSAW was one of Megatron's most loyal and trusted warriors. Whether he was on Earth or working with Shockwave back on Cybertron, Buzzsaw carried out every task with a careful and reasoned approach, dedicated to making sure every operation went as planned. When presented with the opportunity to work on a new "masterpiece", like any fine artist, he jumped at the opportunity. With advanced optical sensors he can pinpoint and record an object as small as one centimeter in width from a distance of just over 35 miles. His stealth-flight ability allows him to quickly get the information he needs and depart before anyone even knows he was there. In robot mode, he wields twin diamond blades which will cut through any opponent in his path. Even in his new form, he continues to approach every mission as he did in the past. He remains committed to the total destruction of the Autobots and their Maximal descendants. Buzzsaw will only stand down when the Maximals are no more!

Cheetor

The youngest of the AXALON crew, Cheetor is enthusiastic, impulsive and brave. A former cadet in the Maximal Command Security Force, CHEETOR left in search of an adventure that would take him to the far reaches of space. Seeing leadership potential in the young MAXIMAL, OPTIMUS PRIMAL recruited him to join the Axalon crew, hoping their mission of discovery would help develop his innate abilities while teaching him way to curb his abundant enthusiasm. At the core of all of Cheetor's actions is his desire to prove himself to the older Maximals that he idolizes, such as Optimus Primal, whom he refers to as "Big Bot." Cheetor, the fastest Maximal aboard the Axalon, can reach speeds up to 550 mph in vehicle form with a range of 1500 miles. His specialty designed engine block converts into a dual barreled Quasar Cannon for offensive strikes. While his Axalon crewmates sometimes express impatience with him, ultimately they all feel a sense of responsibility to help him grow and develop.

Laserbeak

After the Great War, most of the Decepticons who were granted amnesty simply retired, no longer wanting any part of the age old conflict. LASERBEAK, not satisfied with the idea of wasting away on the outskirts of CYBERTRON, found a new calling when he was contacted by Divebomb, a Predacon that was long thought deactivated. Offering both a new form and a new purpose, Laserbeak, along with Ravage and BUZZSAW, accepted the offer and was reprogrammed and rebuilt as a PREDACON. Though Ravage became dissatisfied with his role and left to serve the Tri-Predacus Council, Laserbeak, like Buzzsaw, stayed loyal to his benefactor. In Beast mode, Laserbeak can travel up to 400 mph. His twin crystal blades can slice through 5 inch thick plate steel with relative ease. While more comfortable in beast mode, Laserbeak has become quite adept at piloting different starships through space. With his comrade, Buzzsaw, Laserbeak continues to work in secret towards bringing about the day when the strong elements with the Predacon population will rise up and seize power away from those who have made peace, not war.

Rattrap

His career as a spy for Maximal Command has sent Rattrap traveling from the murky depths of the CYBERTRON severs to the forests of alien worlds. His experiences have forged a deep rooted confidence in the diminutive MAXIMAL, but they have also fostered an attitude that often grates on his teammates. used to working alone and getting his own way, RATTRAP will be the first to whine when someone proposes a course of action he does not prefer. Despite his complaining, Rattrap is a smart and cunning warrior and those who underestimate him often regret it. While his primary weapon in both robot and vehicle modes is a dual barreled machine gun cannon, he carries an impressive array of devices that aid him in his missions including decoy beacons and time delayed explosive bombs. He joined the AXALON crew in hopes of taking a break from his intrigue-filled life, seeing it as a vacation from his normal duties. OPTIMUS PRIMAL recognized Rattrap's rich experience base and was more than happy to accept him into the crew - a decision he sometimes regrets.

Tigatron

The Maximal Command Security Force is a highly trained branch of the Maximal Imperium dedicated to protecting the fragile peace that exists between the MAXIMALS and PREDACONS. Unit 2 is one of the elite members of this unit, charged with protecting many of Cybertron's most heavily guarded artifacts. A highly adept security officer that dedicates himself completely to the protection of any item or person he is assigned to guard, he also possesses an uncanny tracking ability that has helped him recover stolen items in the past. While Unit 2 is one of the most dedicated officers in the Maximal Command Security Force, he often feels out of place among his comrades. His work generally restricts him to the confines of CYBERTRON and its various space stations. From time to time, Unit 2 has caught himself wondering if he came online at the wrong time, and whether his destiny may lie elsewhere in the galaxy.

Waspinator

In his own mind, "Waspinator" is destined for a glorious reign atop the PREDACON hierarchy. Sadly, his actual abilities fall very short of this ideal. It is almost as if the Predacon warrior is cursed. In vehicle mode he can achieve Mach 3.2 and is equipped with the ability to generate a localized anti-gravity field that allows him to stop almost instantaneously with little to no drift. His primary armaments are two machine gun cannons built into the sides of his nose cone. In robot mode, WASPINATOR wields a stun rifle that fires blasts of circuit-disrupting

energy. His optic sensors can emit destructive blasts at any target he is looking at. Despite all this, his comrades do not respect him and his enemies do not fear him. In battle, he is often dispatched in the most gruesome manner possible, however Waspinator is an undeniably stubborn spirit and refuses to give up his dreams. MEGATRON recognizes this quality and seeks to exploit it to his own maximum potential for his own benefit.


And a bonus – Club Landquake.

Landquake

This Classics "Ultra Vehicles" page. The first 2 are deluxes, and the last is a Mega. I don't think there were any "Ultra" classics.

I just realized that there were bonus packs of Deluxe CLassic Optimus Prime and Megatron which came with 2 randomly packged members of the Mini-Con Giant Planet Team (Deep Dive, Overcast and Longarm) with them. So technically those toys are both Cybertron and Classic toys. So maybe they should be listed unfer Classic Mini-Cons?

I would just leave them as Cybertron toys. Just like with the Universe repackages of Energon toys.

I have a problem posting free style reviews. Although, I can enter, submit, and edit sections of my review, and I also appear in the database as having a review, if one clicks on the review you will be returned to a screen that lists the people who have reviewed the item but my name will not appear.

This happens no matter what character I review, no matter what computer or network I'm working on. I even created a second account, and got the same result.

Once I write and submit each section, is there something else I need to do before I can view it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

(The current reviews I have are Movie Dreadwing and Deluxe Movie Arcee)

Pictures of Terrorcons toys

Postby [Lady Starscream] » Sat Jul 28, 2007 9:27 pm

I own three of the five terrorcons toys and I have taken some pictures of them for your site. I have turarounds of Hun-Grrr, Sinnertwin, and Cutthroat. I noticed that these three don't have galleries on your site so I decided to just submit my pictures. I don't know if they are the best quality... I put them on a white background but I can only do so much with my digital camera. If you would be interested in me submitting them could you tell me where to post them?
