Seibertron.com is proud to present our newest gallery: MP-17 Prowl!

The first of the three Datsun Fairlady Z releases, the one that started it all. Instantly recognizable, Prowl the strategist makes a splash in Masterpiece form for the first time. Much like his brother Bluestreak, Prowl is a highly detailed replica of the Datsun Fairlady Z, with yet another gorgeous paint scheme.

Prowl, as a character, was kinda boring and by the book, while this Masterpiece figure is anything but. Takara Tomy's attention to detail continues to wow with this guy, because he looks like he stepped right out of your screen, and looks like a work of art. Much like the Lamborghini mold (gallery coming soon!), each Datsun figure has their own individual face, making each figure unique and not just a simple redeco like the figures of the past.

If you're still sitting on the fence about these, we hope our galleries will sway you. These beautiful gems will look great in any collection. Want to see more? Check out the pictures below before heading to the full gallery (which can be accessed just by clicking any of the pictures) and then come back and share your thoughts!

Seibertron.com is proud to present our newest gallery: MP-18 Streak! (AKA Bluestreak)

The second of the three Datsun Fairlady Z releases, with Prowl previously released (come back tomorrow for our MP-17 gallery!) and Smokescreen soon to follow. Most people see the Datsuns and recognize Prowl or Smokescreen first due to the former being a police car and the latter being a very bright red, white and blue race car. Both stand out, while Bluestreak looks like your run of the mill automobile and tends not to, but this isn't a weakness, this makes his the best disguise of all!

While Bluestreak, as a character, isn't exactly memorable, except for his attitude and mouth (both of which got him into trouble), his masterpiece figure certainly will be. Takara Tomy's attention to detail really shines with this guy, because not only does he look like his animation model, he also shows off every fine detail of the real Datsun Fairlady Z, with a painstaking paint deco that's deserving of covetous stares.

If you're still sitting on the fence about these, we hope our galleries will sway you. These beautiful gems will look great in any collection. Want to see more?

The Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Galleries roll on! Today we have the latest two figures from the Voyager Class, Ultra Magnus and Grimwing!

Ultra Magnus makes brilliant use of the Transformers Prime Robots in Disguise Voyager Optimus Prime mold with extensive retooling, new colors, and accessories, which include the Forge of Solus Prime. This retool works especially well since so many fans use the First Edition Voyager Optimus Prime in their displays.

Grimwing is the latest addition to the Predacon ranks. According to the Transformers panel at Toy Fair earlier this year Grimwing is an Ursagrpyh, rather than a generic dragon. He comes with Blackbeak, a semi sentient weapon/drone.

During last month's Hasbro Media Day site owner Ryan Yzquierdo had the pleasure of speaking to The New York Times' Gregory Schmidt for an article that was published yesterday titled, "Classic Toys Redesigned to Traverse Generations". The article focuses on Hasbro's continued ability to grow the Transformers brand and expand it into new markets, creating a truly generational franchise. In the excerpt below Ryan explains the appeal of Transformers: Rescue Bots to parents with young children. The full article can be found by clicking here.


That was enough to convince Ryan Yzquierdo, who has been a Transformers fan since he was 7, that Rescue Bots were a good way to introduce Transformers to his 3-year-old daughter.

“Each toy focused on a different motor skill, which was a big selling point for me and my wife,” said Mr. Yzquierdo, who started a Web site, Seibertron.com, devoted to Transformers in 2000.
