Seibertron.com is proud present another Transformers holy grail from Super God Masterforce, G1 Overlord! He's always been in high demand among G1 collectors, but his popularity rose to new heights after appearing as the sadistic lead villain in IDW Publishing's fan favorite comic series Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers. Overlord recently received the Classics treatment in this year's BotCon "Invasion" box set as Gigatron, a repaint/retool of ROTF Voyager Class Bludgeon, which featured a new head inspired by his appearance in the aforementioned Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers comic. Full galleries of Overlord and his two Godmasters (aka Powermasters) Giga and Mega can be found below. Enjoy!

Shortly after Hasbro's Transformers brand panel on July 12th, 2012 at San Diego Comic-Con, Seibertron.com's owner Ryan Yzquierdo had an opportunity to interview Hasbro's Jerry Jivoin (Marketing Director of Global Brand Development) and Aaron Archer (VP Creative Director, Brand design IP creation). Jerry and Aaron are well known to Transformers fans around the world. The audio from this interview will be included in our next Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast early next week. In the meantime, I did my best to transcribe the audio for all of you to read. Without further ado, here's Seibertron.com's interview with Hasbro.

Image

Seibertron.com / Ryan: "What can you tell us about Takara Tomy exclusive figures such as Unicron, Breakdown? Are they going to stay exclusive to Japan?"

Hasbro / Jerry Jivoin: "We don't have plans right now really. This is the second time this question has come up. We're definitely evaluating those and one thing that we're trying to do is that you saw with the Year of the Dragon edition Optimus Prime and the China exclusives that we're bringing over to Toys R Us is we recognize that Takara Tomy is working on great stuff that's being released and we want to bring stuff over to the fans here so rather than paying $200 on eBay ..."

Seibertron.com / Ryan: "Yeah, I just dropped $70 on those Legends class toys [from Asia]."

Hasbro / Jerry: "I'd rather us get those into a store and sell it here. All that kind of stuff we're looking at. We don't have any plans right now but not to say that we wouldn't do it."

Seibertron.com / Ryan: "Then again with the Takara Masterpieces, it seems like the smaller scale might be more appealing to American retailers such as Walmart and Target. Are you working with Takara on that or is that too far down the road?"

Hasbro / Aaron: "No we work with them on concept with "here's the next one we're thinking about", "what do you think?" so we do discuss it even though we know on the offset that it's for their market. Doing the smaller cars has helped but it's really about the market for Jerry. Do we do a non-connected high end item as an exclusive or where does it fit?"

Hasbro / Jerry: "The other thing with Sideswipe too is we have to get the Lamborghini license, which they have, which they were able to secure for the Japanese market. We have not [secured that]. If we're going to do that, we're going to need to approach Lamborghini and setup a licensing deal with them to do that. But we've seen them, we love them, we'd love to bring them to the US, there's no plans exactly yet but Masterpiece will continue. You've got Optimus Prime and Thundercracker this year, so we definitely see the value in bringing them over because fans love them."

Seibertron.com / Ryan: "The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the new pictures from Takara is basically this is Hasbro's answer to Mattel with their Masters of the Universe Classics line which has the perfect epitome of all of those characters. That's what I [thought] when I saw that. What can you tell me about the shared exclusive G2 Bruticus set? You guys really went all out with that package so much so that I don't think I've seen you guys put that much work into an Amazon.com or BigBadToyStore.com exclusive before. Was that at one point going to be a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive?"

Hasbro / Jerry: "You know the package, we wanted to make it something special because we realize "hey, you can buy Bruticus in the main line in the deluxe format, we're selling him here at Comic-Con as an exclusive, and we wanted to make it special. We didn't just want to do a redeco and put it in a general package. This was an opportunity to really do something unique with this item. And a lot of it goes to our packaging creative group and art directors. They really had a lot of fun."

Hasbro / Aaron: "They challenged themselves. They went above and beyond, not that we didn't want that. The brief was the brief but they certainly did extra work to take it to a much finer point than may have seemed necessary at the beginning."

Hasbro / Jerry: "They surprised us when they showed it. They had a lot of passion for it. They just dove into it and replicated everything."

Seibertron.com / Ryan: "Please thank whoever. That's awesome I think. Looking at the size of some of the other items that are with the Marvel or G.I. Joe brands, you've got the giant heli-carrier for Marvel, I feel like Transformers is getting the short end of the stick as far as big products. Someone mentioned about Omega Supreme, Metroplex, Fort Max ... some of those big guys ... is there a chance of getting some love for some of those guys?"

Hasbro / Aaron: "I think that we recognize that those other groups have done that and even some other companies have. You know, $300 items, $400 items, in the market place not just for collectors or [conventions]. So it makes sense for us to look at that so we're starting that process because we do have big characters."

Hasbro / Jerry: "And I think you see with Bruticus and having that ..."

Seibertron.com / Ryan: "Well then you have the 3rd party companies coming out with the big figures and I know that's a sore spot."

Hasbro / Aaron: "(sarcasm) Not familiar with that."

Everyone: (laughs)

Seibertron.com / Ryan: "It's obvious that Transformers fans have lots of money to spend when it comes to this stuff. I'd rather give you guys the money than somebody else."

Hasbro / Jerry: "We appreciate that."

Seibertron.com / Ryan: "Alright, one more question. Recently Hasbro trademarked "Transformers Combiners". Is that for the Kre-o line or is that for another future product line that you guys have coming down the ropes?"

Hasbro / Jerry: "Probably for Kre-o. We have our combiners from like the Bruticus combiners from Generations but it's probably from the Kre-os and Kreons that we showed today with those combiners. But it's probably specifically for them."

Seibertron.com / Ryan: "Alright, one more. With the success of some of the big brands that Hasbro owns such as Transformers, G.I. Joe, ... My Little Pony apparently now, is there any discussion within Hasbro of maybe doing an equivalent of a Hasbro-Con or something to that effect?"

Hasbro / Aaron: "A lot of people bring that up, not at Hasbro, just people bring that up. And some at Hasbro. Not yet."

Hasbro / Jerry: "I think between the conventions and Toy Fair, like our collector day at Toy Fair, BotCon, JoeCon ..."

Hasbro / Aaron: "What's great about BotCon and JoeCon is that it's targetted conversation exactly about your brand to the people that care most about the brand. It's an ability to take all that information that goes out around the world."

Seibertron.com / Ryan: "Which we appreciate. I would not be a big fan of going that route just seems like a possibility as these brands keep getting bigger and bigger."

Hasbro / Aaron: "There could be risk of taking away that intimacy in doing that though the Hasbro mark is cool too though. It's not like the fans cross polinate all the time."


Thank you again to Jerry Jivoin and Aaron Archer at Hasbro for taking some time out of your very busy and hectic SDCC schedule to answer some questions for Seibertron.com. We really appreciate it!

While out prowling the K-Mart toy aisles for new Transformers Seibertron came across a couple of notable shelf tags:

Prime Weaponizers - $29.99
Ult Bot Shots Battle - $21.99

Not major news, as we knew the Transformers Prime Weaponizers were on their way, and the Ultimate Bot Shot Battle is likely the "Battle for the Matrix" set that was on display at BotCon, but it's good to know these products are close to being released.

Featured eBay Auction #1
Transformers GRAND MAXIMUS C-311 Headmasters Japanese Exclusive MIB AFA in US MIB C-9.5++

Fellow Seibertronian cybershark-1 is selling his Grand Maximus. This is your chance to get it! Seibertron.com's gallery of Grand Maximus will be going up soon. Get it now before the fandom gets counterpunched!

Check out this item from eBay seller cybershark-1. You can view all of this seller's items by clicking here.

cybershark-1 wrote:BEST GRAND MAXIMUS ON EBAY IVE EVER SEEN!!

Transformers Generation One Japanese Exclusive Super God Masterforce Autobot Cybertron Headmaster Base GRAND MAXIMUS MIB C-9.5+ box is Near Mint and toy is Mint, Complete with styrofoam inserts, Instructions, UNapplied labels, biocards, and all accessories including Headmaster mini figure GRAN(Spike), large Headmaster figure GRAND (Cerebros), Grand's Pretender shell, the GRAND Sword, and ONOMISU +KOKA (Gasket and Grommet) which combine to form COG.

Main Robot:
This is a Generation One Japanese EXCLUSIVE re-color of Fortress Maximus coming with Extra Unreleased parts such as 2 extra swords and a large Pretender shell for Grand to fit inside of. The toy measures at almost 2 feet in height. And it is considered one of the "Holy Grails" of Transformer collecting!! Especially in a box this Solid and Nice. It is definitely AFA Quality and if sent in could probably rate the highest of any graded Grand Maximus.

Accessories:
Complete with GRAN Headmaster (Spike), GRAND Large Headmaster (Cerebros), Grand's PRETENDER Shell (Exclusive to this piece). ONOMISU and KOKA (Gasket and Grommet) which combine to form COG, the MASTER BLADE (small sword, exclusive to this piece), the GRAND BLADE (Giant sword, exclusive to this piece), the Dual Laster Cannon, the Proton Master Rifle, Cogs gun, Grands gun, and Scanner/radar piece, UNAPPLIED Label sheet, Instructions and Biocards.

History:
Hi, This GRAND MAXIMUS I bought directly from a seller in Japan in the mid 90's when I received it, it was MISB but for some reason I opened it. I just had to take a peak at what it looked like inside. Other then that, its only been opened to take these pics now!! The toy is unplayed with, untouched, Everything is NEW. the box on this Grand Maximus is also the NICEST I HAVE EVER SEEN!! Whether it be Ebay or at ANY toy shows I have attended!! It is easily a C-9.5+ (I would grade it even higher at a 9.8 like most sellers would but Anybody can find fault with even a mint box out of a factory) Having only 2 small issues as seen in the pics. Just look at the pics of it opened, NOTHING HAS BEEN REMOVED!! The box is extremely sturdy and square the whites hold up and are not faded ANYWHERE!! It was also stored in a non- smoking temperature controlled environment. The COLORS ARE PERFECT, NO FADING!! Just like new!!Any off colors or spots in picture are from the flash only as I had to use my cell phone for pics!! It does have 1 small crumple on the top left hand side back portion of the box- this is the largest of the issues, and it has an even smaller crumple on the top front right hand side of the box with a small sort of "peel" to it, otherwise the box is AMAZING!! ALL Contents Inside are MINT!!and UNTOUCHED!! Also the sticker sheet is UNAPPLIED!! How often do you see that on a Grand Maximus?? YOU DONT!! However the label sheet does have a Crease running through it from whenever it was boxed up at the factory. It is as it was when I opened it years ago, it was folded. So I unfolded it and have it laying flat against the INSIDE portion of the styrofoam lid that sits on top of Grand Maximus!! This can be seen in the pics!! So here is your chance to own the BEST boxed version of a Grand Maximus I have Ever seen on Ebay!! I have seen a few MISB ones sell but even they have not had boxes this nice. And I have been collecting for over 22 years!! Another Grand Maximus just sold in an Ebay auction last week in an inferior box with stickers applied for $4526 here is that link or look it up under "completed listings":

http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574891718&toolid=10001&campid=5336631220&customid=transformers&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi.ebay.com%2Fws%2FeBayISAPI.dll%3FVi%20...%20416wt_1396%3C%2Fa%3E

That grand Maximus had been used and had applied stickers etc. MINE HAS NOT!!!

Here is your chance to get the closest thing to a "new" Grand Maximus as you will likely EVER get!! Dont let this pass you up!!

Featured eBay Auction #4
Transformers OVERLORD in Hasbro UK box with ENGLISH TEXT + unused labels in US

Check out this item from eBay seller kronos-prime. You can view all of this seller's items by clicking here.

kronos-prime wrote:Item: Transformers Hasbro Decepticon foreign exclusive OVERLORD complete with all accessories and instructions in Hasbro UK box featuring English text in US

Description:
Box general:
- Overall looks great with good color and gloss.
- This piece is probably as close as Hasbro ever came to releasing a "US" version of this incredible toy. Overlord was of course never released in the US.

Box front:
- Upper left hand corner is crumpled with a half-inch long tear and some wear.
- Mild dent/bend on upper right hand side plus bottom of the lower left hand edge.

Box back:
- PLEASE NOTE: I didn't include a picture of the back of the box just in case the winning bidder by chance wanted the contents of the background story and the tech-specs to remain a "surprise" of sorts, seeing as how they are in English.
- Mild scuffing.
- Upper right hand corner is crumpled with creases plus a dent just above the center of the same side.

Box side one:
- Lower right hand corner has a bent tip with wear.

Box side two:
- Top edge is bent with crease and wear.

Styrofoam:
- Complete with brace pieces.
- Overall looks great.

Main robot and accessories:
- PLEASE NOTE: The toy included in this auction is the Takara version. The only difference between the Takara and UK versions of Overlord is the shade of the purple plastic on the toy/accessories (the blue also might be a slightly different shade but to be honest I can't remember). Otherwise they are exactly the same.
- Complete with all accessories.
- The legs on the mini Energon figures (Powermasters, or as they were called in Japan Godmasters Mega and Giga) are slightly loose, but otherwise they look great.
- Everything looks great.

Paperwork:
- Includes the original UK instruction booklet. It's a little worn but is still intact.
- Also includes unused unapplied label sheet. The label sheet is in great shape.

Jim Sorenson (jms98!) wrote:OK, now, this is an interesting one. When Bill and I were trying to sell the book of Transformers animation models that would eventually become Transformers: The Ark, we created these pitch documents to hand out to editors at IDW and to folks at Hasbro. I stumbled across three, and thought that there might be some interest. These are unique items, part of the process of how a book gets made and sold, and I'd love to see them find their way to good hands. You get one of the three items, they're all identical. I'll be happy to autograph it if you like.

Seibertron.com's Transformers and more wrote:The item in the photographs below is the actual item you will receive. The white parts on the toy, as well as the small Headmaster figure, have yellowed a little bit (which you might be able to fix with an H202 bath). The factory applied stickers are worn and it appears to be missing some stickers. It includes the small Headmaster figure which transforms into the toy's head, the large gun, and both small guns (which attach to the helmet, which is unfortunately missing).

DOUBLE PUNCH Transformers Action Master Elite Euro European UK 1991 100% complete

Check out this item from eBay seller Seibertron.com's Transformers and more. You can view all of this seller's items by clicking here.

Seibertron.com's Transformers and more wrote:This item is mint-on-card. It has been removed from the package. Double Punch has some minor paint chips as well as some wear to the toy and minor sticker wear, typical of this particular toy and of a toy of this age. The "arm-flailing"/attack mechanism on his back randomly makes the right arm work. The left arm no longer moves when the button is pushed. A small, barely noticeable polyband was wrapped around the inside of the upper left shoulder joint to increase friction so that the arm can be posed (it used to loosely drop down). These issues are pretty typical of loose specimens of this figure. This item is a very nice display piece as you can see from the pictures below. If you have questions, please let me know. Thanks!

Transformers G1 BLUE Cliffjumper from IGA Mexican Release RARE

Here's one you don't see everyday!

Check out this item from eBay seller de-witte-tornado. You can view all of this seller's items by clicking here.

de-witte-tornado wrote:One of the most exclusive MOSC Transformers of my collection is now for sale.
This is the famous Blue Cliffjumper released by IGA in Mexico.
Some of these Mexican releases were located here in Holland.
Why is not known. So the chance to find this one in this condition is unique.
First the bubble:
The bubble is firmly attached to card.
It is super bright.
There is a crack on the right side of the bubble as can be seen in picture 3.
Then the card:
It is super clean.
It is bright....no fading!
No big scratches or something. (I would have shown that with a pic)
It is not completely flat...there is what I call: a little "wave" in the card.

All original stuff, I do not sell or collect reissue or KO stuff,
and I never will cause its all fake in my opinion.
