Warriors of Cybertron,
We are The Huntmasters, and we represent the Bounty Hunting Elite of our world.

We have been watching those amongst you who have shown a thirst for the hunt.

Some amongst you hunt for the bounty, the sporting glory or the thrill of the chase. Others dedicate their time to capturing criminals and lawbreakers in these chaotic times and then there are also those who seek the answers to the universe that rest just out of their reach...
but the undeniable fact is that the skill and the dedication to the task you have shown is unquestionable.

In the past, many hunters have graced the Hall of Fame of Cybertron's Hunter Elite

Now, We offer you the chance to join the ranks of these elite and allow your unique breed of Cybertronian the opportunity to stalk your prey once more as a Heavy Metal Hunter.

The Decepticon among you known to us as Tammuz set you a challenge to test your hunting skills, which continues for another 4 cycles. We who have been watching that challenge and have added our own condition...

SUCCESSFULLY COLLECT THE FULL 12 MEMBERS OF ANY OPPOSITION TEAM AND PASS OUR TEST.

Complete this challenge as part of Tammuz's hunt, or as part of your war for the planet, and you will be granted a hunting licence that will award you the once-lost access codes to the hunter's database, as it is rebuilt. Through this database you will have access to the logs of the Heavy Metal Hunter's alliance and we will allow you to pass and receive payment for your deeds.

Hunters of Cybertron, when you feel you have passed out test post your application for a licence below, and as long as our condition is met you will be granted that previledge.

New opportunities await you Cybertronians; the Autobot neliz, has already proven himself by collecting Fearless Echoes Predacon team, and his name will be added to the Hunters Hall of Fame.
{L_IMAGE}

He is only the first, and will not be the last.



Placing a Bounty

For those of you with energon to burn or an axe to grind, should you wish post a bounty yourselves, here are the rules of the hunt:
[quote="The Huntmasters Creed"">
  • Bounties can be set on individiual Transformers, an entire commander's team, or any combination of the above.

  • To accept a public bounty a hunter must post to say he undertaking it. This does not exclude other hunters from also attempting the bounty. Private bounties must remain private until after completion and then can only be be disclosed at the clients request.

  • In the case of Private bounties, only Licensed hunters can be 'brokered' and all bounty applications must be made through PM's to us, The Huntmasters.

  • Please edit and submit this form if you wish to place a bounty.

It is advised that you read the guidelines regarding costing of bounties

Lvl 2 = €2,000
Lvl 3 = €3,000
Lvl 4 = €4,000

The Universe of the Transformers is vast, and populated by many characters. Their universe is a large tapestry, made up of the stories and points of view of countless experiences that serve the larger whole.

These are some of those stories. This is:

Welcome to the Transtopia Newsletter. We are proud to give you an update for the month of November. Lots of things are happening in this hot forum – from artwork to customs, from updates to upgrades. Our members have been hard at work. To better reflect the community’s artistic talent we have changed the name of this newsletter from “Custom Monthly Update” to “Transtopia Newsletter”. Over the next few months we will be rolling out several new sections to the newsletter. Stay tuned. Until then drop by Transtopia for the latest work. -Stormrider



A Message from Ryan
Hey everyone,

In a few short weeks, an all-new feature section will make its debut on Seibertron.com called "Transtopia". This new section will feature the creative work of the many talented Seibertronians that make up this website. Transtopia will be the place where members of Seibertron.com (we're looking at YOU) will be able to showcase incredible custom figures and kitbashes, beautiful artwork, and amazing fan-fiction.

Transtopia will be dedicated officially to one of the greatest members of the Transformers community, Bill "TFmaster" Koshorek. Bill was the very proud owner of the fantastic Transtopia community that used to reside at tfmaster.com. Bill approached me at BotCon 2006 about moving the Transtopia community over to Seibertron.com. I took over the hosting of tfmaster.com in November 2006 after agreeing to create a new Transtopia here on Seibertron.com that merged the best of the Transformers mega sites with the best of the creative minds within the Transformers community. Before plans and ideas could be completed, Bill had a massive heart attack in March 2007. Sadly, Bill did not make it and it seemed that Transtopia might die with him.

Over the next year and a half, I felt an immense amount of guilt over not completing Bill's dream. That was until 2 staff members on Seibertron.com, First Gen and Stormrider, came along and really started pushing for the creative content in the Transtopia forums to be featured on Seibertron.com once again. Their interest is in making sure that the Transtopia community thrives and breathes life back into the Transtopia project and ultimately Bill's dream. In November 2008, I began programming the new Transtopia gallery section that will feature Customs and Artwork, which was the primary focus of Bill's Transtopia.

Transtopia will be different than any other application on the major Transformers websites. You'll be able to create your own galleries, add images to those galleries, select which categories those images belong within, automatic on-the-fly thumbnail creation, the ability to easily change the sort order of your galleries and images, easy search functionality, view galleries by users, and more!

In addition to the customs and artwork sections of Transtopia, I am also working on an all-new Fan-Fiction section that will allow you to add fiction, chapters and many other similar advanced custom functionality that will be built with writers in mind.

I have three goals that I hope to accomplish with Seibertron.com's Transtopia: 1) Create a fun and easy to use section for fans to showcase their creative talents, 2) bring back some of the incredibly talented Transtopians to Seibertron.com and 3) make Bill very proud. I'll know #3 will happen when #1 and #2 happen. If I can accomplish those goals, I'll be a very happy person.

Check back later this month to check out the all-new Seibertron.com Transtopia! In the meantime, here's Stormrider's monthly update for Transtopia ...

Make sure to submit your custom in the proper subforum. You will see a sticky in each forum saying “Submissions for Monthly Newsletter”. When submitting, give us the title of your custom and a link to your gallery.

Make a Difference, Join the Newsletter Team!
Want to contribute to the Seibertron community? Why not join the newsletter team? We are looking for volunteers to help out consistently each month. Past experience is helpful but not necessary. Roles to fill include editing, design & layout, writing articles, and overseeing sections. If you are interested send me a PM: Stormrider.

Animated Starscream Face Resculpting Guide
First of all thanks to Maximo Prime (of SECTOR70)who's idea it was that i write this guide.

Tools you will need;a modelling knife,a selection of small needle files,some very fine wet & dry sandpaper,
some spray undercoat/primer and most importantly some sculpting material (personally i use Green stuff).

Step one.
Take apart the head and using a file or modelling knife open up the mouth area as wide as possible

{L_IMAGE}

Be carefull to not to damage the "lug" that the screw fits into when the head is reassembled..
{L_IMAGE}

This is how the front of the head looks at this stage..
{L_IMAGE}

Next fill the hole with Green Stuff..
{L_IMAGE}

Trim off any excess with a modelling knife..
{L_IMAGE}

Now using a sculpting tool begin to carve the mouth..
{L_IMAGE}
When you are happy with the shape leave to dry for at least 12hrs.

Now using a wet finger lightly smudge over the green stuff,this smooths out the surface nicely(please note i don't know how well this will work with other sculpting materials).
{L_IMAGE}

Next using a fine grade sandpaper sand down the green stuff as smoothly as you can..
{L_IMAGE}

Now i spray a light coat of undercoat..
{L_IMAGE}
This will show any imperfections or areas that require any additional sanding.

Using VERY fine sandpaper sand again..
{L_IMAGE}
And undercoat again.

Repeat this process until the face is smooth..
{L_IMAGE}

Finally a couple of general tips.
Look in comic books for some great expressions to copy & if you don't have any sculpting tools get friendly with you're dentist,chances are you might be able to scavenge a few of his old sculpting tools.

It is that time again folks.

We were very successful last time, asking some great questions.

So what questions are on the forefront of your thoughts?

*There are some rules to submitting the questions:

1.) Straightforward.

2.) No multi-part questions.

3.) Not all questions will get answered or even officially asked.

4.) Appropriate and important, timely to the brand.

5.) Do not turn this into a criticism of each other's questions or HASBRO, in general. However, if information is already known--and you know it has been answered and have a source-- that would be an acceptable response so as not to have wasted questions.


We may not submit more than 5 questions, and they should have priority rankings (staff will choose and prioritize).

First round of questions will be submitted by a staff member on December 1st.

This is an awesome opportunity to ask questions that you have wanted answered. This privilege also speaks highly of our community and the important ideas we share daily.

A few days after the date of submission, you will be informed of the questions chosen, and then when/if they are answered the news will be shared with our community the following week.

So please, start typing your serious TRANSFORMERS toy questions...


The first round thread of questions on Seibertron is located here, and the links to all the answered questions from all the participating websites can be found here.

Please do us a favor and try not to ask a question that has already been answered. We really want to be able to maximize this opportunity to its fullest.


Let's start thinking and asking more. All questions due by Monday 12:00 AM to be considered.

Happy Thanksgiving!
