Seibertron.com members daimchoc and Sabrblade bring us a couple of updates on Takara's recently released Transformers Prime Arms Micron AM-16 Jet Vehicon
First, daimchoc has found a video review by YouTube member doubble80. Check out the embeds below.
Second, Sabrblade brings us some potentially unfortunate news by way of fellow fansite the Allspark. It appears Jet Vehicon may be joining Breakdown and Gaia Unicron as Takara exclusives.
Sabrblade wrote:Remember when we found out that the Transformers: Prime Voyager Breakdown and Voyager Gaia Unicron would be TakaraTomy exclusive figures? Well it looks as though the Deluxe Jet Vehicon figure might be joining their ranks. The Jet Vehicon figure was recently released in Japan, and Allspark.com user Powered Convoy has both acquired one and taken a photo of the figure's copyright information. Much like the Breakdown figure, the Jet Vehicon figure only contains copyright info from Tomy, rather than from both Tomy and Hasbro like the other figures shared between the two.
For comparison, here's Prime Voyager Breakdown's copyright information (also taken by Powered Convoy), which also lacks info from Hasbro.
Below we have reviews of both Transformers Generations Spinger and Cliffjumper from Seibertron.com member TJ Duckett. As you're probably well aware of by now both are currently only available in the Asian market, but they will be domestically this Fall through Toys"R"Us. Springer is repaint/retool of HFTD Tomahawk and Cliffjumper is a retool of Transformers Prime First Edition Cliffjumper. Check out the images and videos below.
We also have a review of Cliffjumper from our friend BM8709:
Our friend BM8709 has shared his review of Transformers Generations Deluxe Swerve, a repaint/retool of Generations Sergeant Kup. For the moment this figure is only available in the Asian market, but it was revealed during SDCC that most of the Asian market exclusive figures will be released domestically this Fall through Toys"R"Us. Enjoy his review embedded below.
Part of my experience at Universal Studios that I couldn't get over was the insane amount of Transformers related merchandise that was available throughout the park. Some of the stores were dedicated ENTIRELY to Transformers products and merchandise. Some of the stores were called "Transformers Supply Vault". I had the misunderstanding that there was only going to be a select amount of Transformers items available (i.e. the Universal Studios deluxes, voyagers, the Allspark cube, and some shirts). I had no idea that there was going to be an onslaught of exclusive products available as well as products that you can find at regular retail stores.
I also was surprised at the amount of merchandise that was G1 themed, not just Movie themed. The pictures below are just a sampling of the products that were available. You can click on any of the images below to view a full gallery of the Transformers stores at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Unfortunately, as one might expect with products and merchandise at a theme park, the prices were on the expensive side. All of the retail Transformers toys were double MSRP, which might explain why you could find so many Vehicons and other popular toys available. The items that were exclusive to Universal Studios I could understand being more expensive, but I didn't understand why everything else was going for top dollar.
Regardless, there should be something for every Transformers fan here. I ended up with an Allspark Cube and a magnet and my sister ended up with a cool NEST hat and shirt. I would love to go back with the intention of getting a few other items. With rumors that Transformers The Ride will be opening up in Florida as well, I'm sure we'll all have plenty of chances to get there while this ride is still hot and merchandise is plentiful.
If you're a Transformers fan, you've got to find a way to get to Universal Studios to check out this absolutely amazing ride as well as all of the insane amounts of Transformers merchandise available at the stores in the theme park. You'll be glad that you did. And if you, make sure you stop by here at Seibertron.com to tell all of your fellow Seibertronians about your experience.
Now if they could only figure out how to do a Transformers convention at Universal Studios Hollywood ... then I'd truly be in Transformers heaven!
Transform and roll out! I hope all of you enjoyed the Seibertron.com tour of Universal Studios Hollywood. Special thank you to Universal Studios Hollywood for our tickets.
YouTube and Seibertron.com member TJ Duckett gives us a look at Transformers Generations GDO Deluxe Wheelie, a repaint/retool of RtS Special Ops Jazz complete with slingshot! It was announced during SDCC 2012 earlier this month that this figure along with most of the other GDO figures will be available domestically later this year at Toys"R"Us. Enjoy his review embedded below.
Seibertron.com member Misterfanwank gives us a look at Transformers Prime Weaponizer Bumblebee in the review below. He has also uploaded a video providing some tweaks and fixes for the figure. Enjoy his embedded videos:
He's a decent TOY, but he has a lot of problems, which prevent him from being a truly awesome figure.
Here's a video where I show how to fix some of his problems:
Here's the one many of you have been waiting for, a review of the SDCC 2012 exclusive Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Bruticus Box Set. Seibertron.com member optibotimus gives us a comprehensive look at the set, including the individual figures. It's a long one, but he was kind enough to list when the review of each figure begins if there's one you're more interested in than the others. Check out his review embedded below.
optibotimus wrote:This is a very long video and i apologize for that. I basically did individual reviews of each robot in my normal style. Ending it with a review of the big guy himself. I included here as well as time stamps in the video description on youtube itself to help you guys out. Enjoy
