Seibertron recently unveiled the gallery for Combiner Wars Computron and now we have his Japanese fraternal twin to share with you in this gallery of the Unite Warriors UW-08 Technobots Combiner Computron Set. This is historically unprecedented in the hobby where both Takara and Hasbro are releasing such different versions of a character. It's not just a change in deco, or head or some extra tooling, but a major change in toys constituting the same combiner. As you will see from the comparisons, the only toy which is the same in both sets is Afterburner, who still has a very different paint scheme and accessories from the Hasbro version. Every other member either has new tooling or is a completely different mold, which is the case for Nosecone, Strafe and Lightspeed. They are all sporting heads never released by Takara yet and all feature their own individual and unique guns which can be combined to give Computron a nice big techno assault rifle (or even a bow).
Enjoy the images below where we compare all the figures. Have you decided which one you are getting yet? If you have both, which do you prefer? Let us know in the discussion!
Seibertron.com is proud to bring to you today our latest gallery, that of Masterpiece MP-25L Loud Pedal! Loud Pedal is a retool of MP-25 Tracks, sporting a new head based on the original Track toy and a black color scheme. His color scheme is based on a very limited edition black diaclone version of Tracks released in Finland. He is not the first black Tracks however toy since the original either, as we have gotten a Lucky Draw Black Tracks back several years ago, though Loud Pedal is closer in deco to the original 1984 toy. Loud Pedal also comes with the Road Rage gun, a holomatter avatar version of Raoul, and a redeco of the Blaster boombox done up to look like original micro change toy. Loud Pedal was an exclusive to the Tokyo Toy Show this past year, with the rest being sold off afterwards.

With Computron's coming out left and right with wildly differing paint work and molding choices, Seibertron.com is proud to bring to you today our galleries of Transformers: Combiner Wars Computron with the Technobots and Scrounge!
Computron himself is comprised of 6 different bots, each from a different mold. The leader, Scattershot, is based on the Silverbolt mold with some new alt mode parts and a new robot mode head. Strafe is a retool of Air Raid, complete with all new jet mode retooling. Afterbreaker is a retool of Deluxe Groove with a new windscreen and robot mode head. Lightsteed is a straight redeco of Streetwise and Nosecone is a straight redeco of Brawl. Rounding out the team is new bot Scrounge and shuttle partner Cybaxx, who are a retool and a redeco, respectively, of Cosmos and Payload and are the first representations of the characters in plastic form.

Welcome to the Seibertron.com Transformers Photo Challenge. Every challenge has a theme and suggested guidelines to follow. To participate, just post your pictures in the discussion below. The TFPC is just about having fun and is for all skill levels. Previous challenges can be found here.
Well howdy, the theme this time around is something that is dear to the hearts of a lot of Transformers fans; Transformers: The Movie. With the 30th Anniversary release just a few short days away, you are tasked with recreating your favorite scenes from the movie. This challenge doesn't require much of a description, so instead we'll leave you with a few pieces of inspiration.
As always, set up your bots and show us what you got
Welcome to the latest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. We're back with another exciting episode that features your host Scotty P along with Jon 3.0, Tigertrack, and xRotorstormx. Sit down, tune in and get excited as we discuss all the latest news and reveals.
The 30th Anniversary edition of The Transformers: The Movie is set to be released in mere days on September 13th but our own Scotty P was lucky enough to *somehow* get it before any of us ("Editor's" Note: Thanks, Shout Factory!) We'll talk through the extra features included with this new version, and look back on previous versions of the movie from years gone by.
By the way, if you want to experience all the details for yourself without a breakdown beforehand, you'll want to skip to about the eighteen minute mark in the audio once you hear the movie talk crank up. If you do that, just be sure to come back after this next Tuesday and catch our thoughts.
Hot on the heels of Masterpiece Inferno, comes the one and only Grapple. The cast grapples with balancing want of a cool toy with indifference of a character. Also, speculation about other upcoming Masterpiece figures is found within. Is Hoist an inevitability?
On top of his reveal, we also got wind of the next two possible Masterpiece figures, starting with, at last, a new Megatron? Put another way, Megatron, is that you!? Our show has a hint.
Masterpiece also looks to be taking a turn down the stone cold highway to hell as the sound of broken glass appears to be ushering in a new era: Shattered Glass Masterpiece, starting with none other than Optimus Prime. You can take a look back at the history of Shattered Glass with our SG Optimus Prime 2.0 gallery. We also talk about SG Megatron, but maybe not in the way you'd expect! Why? Well, the picture below from Seibertronian Mindmaster will help as a visual aid for the speculation heard within this episode.
The topic struggles to come to the forefront for a bit, but we finally get around to talking about popular toy line and show topic, Titans Return.
No, seriously, we just can't seem to get to it for awhile. Even this comes up to distract us along the way!
:ahem: Anyhow, we finally do reach our Titanmaster promised land, and not a moment too soon. Wave 2 of the Generations Titans Return toys have started to hit the shelves and with most of the crew having them in hand, we turn all negative Nancy on a few but we end up balancing those out with some high praise.
An interesting list recently appeared of some rumored future Titans Return toys that may be coming down the pike. You'll have to tune in to find out what we think is real, what we think is wishful thinking, and what names might actually show up on packaging. Shattered dreams within, or just a lowering of expectations? Perhaps neither?
Robots in Disguise looks to be doing its best Transformers Victory Multiforce impression with Combiner Force. The recent app update leads to a conversation so in depth, you'll probably be finished reading this sentence in the time it takes for it to all play out.
Up next, our comic gurus discuss the latest comic issues of TF: Titans Return, MTMTE, and Till All Are One. A quick look at the latest stories and thoughts on where we think things may go from here await. In addition, one cast member just might have been hooked by a recent preview showing more of the potential of the Combiner Wars arc brought back to the forefront.
Up next is a great listener question from one of our news staff members, william-james88. New molds of existing characters, or repaints of existing molds into new characters - which reigns supreme?
To wrap up this episode, we have another exciting round of bragging rights. Tune in to find out what neat stuff we got our hands on since last episode. Find out how friend of the show Flux Convoy lends a hand in this episode's bragging!
Plus: Jon 3.0 wins bragging rights for the remainder of all time forever and ever. Seriously. Most of you know why, but if not, be sure not to miss this!
Hope you enjoyed listening! Check back in about two weeks as we prepare for the Revolution.

The very first Transformers figures for the Titans Return line appeared during the tail-end of Combiner Wars, with Buzzsaw - now, with our newest toy galleries, we delve back into the current line, and its Legends class, with Soundwave's other cassette minions: Rumble, Ravage, and Laserbeak!
Rumble continues the age-old diatribe about the colouring, for some, as is presented in a small, black and red tank and tablet modes alongside his robot one; Ravage also shares a tablet mode, but couples his cat-like stealth to a jet mode; Laserbeak swoops in with another variation of the spy tablet, and a questionable spiky armored vehicle mode. And of course, all of them are compatible with Soundwave by fitting into his chest - check it out by clicking on any of the images below!
Our offering today in terms of new toy galleries - a staple feature of Seiberton.com - is once more from the Transformers Titans Return line: Leader class Soundwave, with Titan Master Soundblaster! That's right, Soundblaster the clone/rebuild of Soundwave from the original cartoon series finds its way into the new toy line in the form of a Headmaster under a new name, though still sporting the blue and grey colours of the bigger robot. As for the Decepticon communications specialist himself, this being the Hasbro version we get yellow visor, and a general retool and redeco of the Blaster mold, complete with base mode, boombox/audio dock hybrid mode and compatibility with the Legends class figures. Check out a sample from the galleries below, and click on any of the images to view the full works!
Having now presented to you our galleries of all the standard Headmaster figures, it's time we delved into the realms of the new and the interesting.
Our latest gallery presented to you today is that of the crazy-as-all-get-out-purple-people-smasher leader of the Decepticons from Season 3 of the original Transformers cartoon and the sometimes leader from the Headmasters cartoon: Legends Galvatron! Galvatron is the Takara version of the Hasbro released Titans Return Galvatron with Nucleon, featuring, among other things, a lighter shade of purple for his paint scheme. He also comes with his Headmaster pal Megatron, who features a much more detailed paint scheme than his Hasbro counterpart, Nucleon.
You can check out the whole gallery by clicking any of the below images. Let us know what you think of this latest iteration of the big bad Decepticon Emperor of Destruction in the comments section, and as always stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your latest Transformers News and Galleries!
Seibertron.com is proud to present to you today our newest galleries, that of Titans Return Wolfwire and Monxo, Titans Return Mindwipe and Vorath, and Legends Skullcruncher! Wolfwire and Mindwipe are 2 brand new molds showing off some nice modern beast-former engineering, with Mindwipe even pulling the very cool trick of making his robot mode legs the Beast mode wings. Skullcruncher, meanwhile, is the Takara version of Titans Return Skullsmasher, and comes with a little vehicle named Batora, who is the same mold as the little dino-creature that came with Crashbash initially.
The time has come. All 4 of the original Autobot Headmasters who weren't city sized have now been released and collected, and it is time to show off a huge gallery!
Seibertron.com presents our latest gallery, that of Titans Return Chromedome, Highbrow, Titan Force Brainstorm, and Legends Hardhead! Chromedome is a brand new mold that perfectly encompasses the leader of the 4 headmasters coupled with a little bit of IDW spice, and includes his partner Stylor. Highbrow is also a new mold that shares some engineering with the wave 1 Titans Return Scourge and includes his partner Xort. Brainstorm is a retool of the wave 1 Blurr figure and includes his partner Teslor, or as we all know him as, Arcana. Finally, we have legends Hardhead, who is the Takara version of the Hasbro release featuring a new face that includes a mouth. This version of the character would not normally have a named headmaster partner normally since in Japan the little heads were the actual characters and the larger bodies were simply extensions of the smaller figures, but the toy name in Japan for Duros was Ros, so that is what is labelled here. He also comes with a cute little tank/jet drone named Tankette to accompany him, which originally came with Terri-bull.
Check out the headmaster quartet below, now labelled as Titan Masters (well, all except this Hardhead) and let us know what you think of this first modern realization of the quartet!
