Seibertron.com is proud to present our newest gallery:
Age Of Extinction Power Attackers Claw Crush Junkheap
Remember Dark Of The Moon? (Of course you do!) Remember the scene when the Decepticons make their appearance in D.C. and everyone wanted that awesome Waste Management garbage truck bot? (It was quite cool, actually.) Well, sadly we didn't get one then, but we're finally getting one now! In a special arrangement with Waste Management, Hasbro has been given the rights to affix the WM company logo on a Decepticon figure and that figure is Power Attackers Junkheap! A few years late, but better late than never, eh?
A different take on the Waste Management garbage truck bot was used in Age Of Extinction, they were created by KSI and the three components formed the garbage truck, in the film and they had an on screen appearance lasting less than 10 seconds. (Sadly.) So, the figure we've been waiting for is actually based off of one component of a three bot vehicle.
Sadly, he's packed one to a case and that case is part of the final assortment of Age Of Extinction figures, so chances are that most retailers probably won't be carrying this assortment of figures, meaning both Junkheap and his wave mate Vehicon (which you can see, here) are going to be extremely difficult to find, and even more so for a good price.
While you search for this guy (and Vehicon), take a moment to check out his gallery here on Seibertron.com and check back tomorrow for our exclusive video review of the figure, so you can see his Claw Crush gimmick in action! We will be posting the review on our front page, so make sure to come back!

My fellow Seibertronians, lend me your listening devices. As News Admin of Seibertron.com, I am always looking for the best volunteers to contribute as part of the news staff, and it is time to open up the call again. With 2015 getting into swing, a new animated series just airing, big toy reveals happened, two toy fairs in the sack but plenty of events to still come, we could really use some extra hands on deck.

You'd be able to tap into your own knowledge pool to present news items, as well as receive support from everyone currently on staff.
But let's take it systematically, shall we?

Must be an active member of the Seibertron.com community - You must be an active member of our community, and you must be willing to continue to post on the forums regularly after joining. Staff members of other Transformers fansites are not eligible.
Good writing skills - What it says on the tin. We are an English resource for Transformers news, and need good writing and reading skills to effectively communicate news to the fandom.
A clean Disciplinary board record - Having a warning doesn't preclude you from applying, but we will be looking over your board history.

The position comes with full News Crew privileges and a Seibertron.com staff email, and will include both a training and a test period for you to develop your skills and for us to assess your abilities. We will not turn down anyone without good reason.
We will not make you wait long to enjoy the full wave 2 of Transformers Generations Combiner Wars - check out below the Seibertron.com galleries for Aerialbot Air Raid, awash in a sea of purple Stunticons: Off Road, Dead End and Breakdown! Each gallery shows the single figure in both their robot and vehicle mode, showcasing accessories and poseability, as well as group shots, comparisons with other figures from the line and the G1 predecessors for each - and of course, the Menasor and Superion combined forms for the Stunticon and Aerialbot team respectively, finally with all the limbs in the right place. Click on any image below to access the full galleries, and happy browsing.
This Friday, Seibertron.com is proud to present some refreshed galleries to older installations for Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Menasor and Superion! The Stunticons, making up most of Wave 2 in the Motormaster Voyager and Offroad, Breakdown and Dead End Deluxes, plus Legends Blackjack, join Wave 1 Dragstrip to form the horned gestalt with a sword, and just in time for next week's IDW Opening Salvo.
Similarly, the last addition from Wave 2 to the Aerialbots, Air Raid, can finally become a limb for Silverbolt's torso mode, and together with Alpha Bravo, Skydive and Firefly, plus Legends Powerglide, become Cybertron's (and Starscream's?) main defence. Click on any image below to view the full galleries, updated and reframed, and now including even more comparison shots with previousversions of the characters from G1!
Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. This episode features your always exceptional host ScottyP, the very metal xRotorstormx, an appearance by the man of many voices Jon3.0, and the latest podcast regulars to join the crew: Spy vs. Spy. No wait, it was Counterpunch! No, that's not right either. You'll have to bother listening to find out who's taken home the top prize in our first ever casting call.
First up we have comic talk. More Than Meets the Eye #38 and The Transformers #38 were released the day of recording. Sit back as we dive in and discuss time travel, treachery, mass shifting and more. Skip to 31:25 in the audio if you wish to avoid spoilers, because the spoiler pants are all over the floor during this segment.
Buster returns to help save G1.
What's our take on Masterpiece Tracks? Is it the same as yours? Did Raoul win the casting call? Does he get a numbered release too?

Rescue and SWAT? How does that work?
We also discuss the new Leader Megatrons, including the G1/IDW and Armada inspired color schemes and molds. Are they good representations of these characters, or is Armada Megatron gonna have to stab somebody? Full galleries of these toys are also available, check here for G1/IDW Megatron and here for Armada Megatron.

After the two sets of Decepticon and Autobot Specialists, Seibertron.com is proud to present new galleries showcasing the Takara Tomy Generations Autobot Warriors trio of Ratchet, Kup and Perceptor!
Differently from the Specialists, the only Henkei! Henkei!/Universe mold redeco is for the medic Ratchet, while grumpy old Kup and the sniper scientist Perceptor were both released under the United line (Japanese counterpart to various Hasbro Generations/Reveal the Shield/Classics monickers). Check out the slick new paintjobs on the three toys, including comparison shots to other versions of the molds, by heading below and clicking on any of the images for the full galleries!
Curious about the Transformers: Robots in Disguise exhibit at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, but cannot make it yourself, and the gallery we posted earlier is just not enough? Check out the embedded video below, then, and bask in almost 40 minutes of walkthrough to the whole thing as site owner Seibertron shows us around the place, and gives his thoughts live as he explores the museum with his family!
A we've been mentioning through today, site owner Seibertron was able to make the trip the Children's Museum on Indianapolis, in order to visit the new, Hasbro licensed, Transformers: Robots in Disguise exhibit we reported on a while ago!
If you head below and click on the images provided, you can take a look at a fairly extensive gallery covering the various parts of the history of the Transformers showcased, from interactive features, the prototypes and models on show (from unused toys to BotShots and more), the Soundwave through the ages collection, the vehicles of Movie Optimus Prime and Bumblebee on display, a Beast Wars diorama, a "design a Transformer" area, cartoons running in a room where kids can play with simplified 3 Step Transformers, an area where you can "become a Transformer" by motion-capture controlling a screen Bumblebee, and much much more than meets the eye!
We have a new entry in the Seibertron.com galleries, and we're working in a slightly different order too. Feast your optics below, by clicking on any of the images, on a full gallery of the recently released Leader class Transformers Generation Combiner Wars Armada Megatron!
Though not a combiner itself, it still falls under the 2015 toyline, and much like deluxe Armada Starscream, homages the Unicron trilogy cartoon of the same name. The toy shares the mold with the more G1esque tank Megatron (stay tuned for more on that!), features a new antlered headsculpt and orange/green/purple deco, plus a firing missile, telescopic arm cannon and a big purple rifle gun. Check it out below!
The newest update in the Seibertron.com galleries brings us QT11 Autobot Meister (Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86), QT12 Sunstreaker (Mazda RX-7 FD3S), QT13 Alert (Lamborghini Countach LP500S), and QT14 Smokescreen (Nissan Fairlady Z 280Z-T) in their homage to the Choro-Q line (which you might know as Penny Racers outside of Japan).
