Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Autobot032, we found out about this fix for First Edition Optimus Prime's head. Apparently, the head is not properly snapped on to the ball joint. Here's how to fix it:

  • Unscrew the back of the head
  • Separate the front and back halves of the head. Notice the back of the head is on the ball joint, but is not "snapped" on properly.
  • Snap the back of the head onto the ball joint. You will need to use a little pressure.
  • Reattach the front half of the face.
  • Screw the head back together

(As always, you should be careful when modifying your Transformers toys. We are not responsible if you follow these steps and somehow manage to cause damage to your figure.)

This modification will make Optimus' head look a little more proper. His chin is not as close to his neck as it was before plus he gains extra head movement that you would expect from a ball joint. He's now able to look up without his head popping off.

Apparently this fix has been talked about for a while on some forums. If the person who figured this out can step forward, I would be happy to update the news story accordingly to give proper credit for this.

Below are some pictures demonstrating the differences before and after the fix as well as some pictures demonstrating once again how bad ass this figure is. The images below click through to the full Seibertron.com gallery of the Takara Tomy version of Optimus Prime. Enjoy!

It's not every day that one can replicate a figure from scratch, let alone a Transformer that's a holy grail to many collectors. Generation One Unicron was never released back in the 90's when his character was most relevant, and to this day, many have simply come to terms with the other versions of Unicron released by Hasbro/Takara. However one customizer wasn't going to back down from a challenge, as Seibertron.com member calebzammit was able to recreate the behemoth from scratch. Check it out below!

With Pretenders Bludgeon, Thunderwing, and Metalhawk getting love in Classics form, what about that slimy purple Decepticon, Iguanus? Seibertron.com member and customizer aprim decided to bring Iguanus back to life in the 21st century by combining a handful of different figures into one giant, hollow mutant shell. Out of the shell comes a sleek bike, much like the Generation One toy. Check it out below, while the rest of it can be seen in our forums.

What happens when you take Armada Scavenger, 2007 Movie Protoform Optimus Prime, Universe Heavy Load, Energon Megatron, Energon Landmine, Universe Dropshot, and an Armada Unicron? For customizer shenron_customs, you get the Pre-Earth combining behemoth, War For Cybertron Devastator. While Devastator has been a center piece for a couple of third parties, this custom is also a piece of art for the sheer amount of scratch work put into it. Deco'd in the traditional green and purple, and decked out with tons of battle damage, check out Scavanger, Mixmaster, Hook, Long Haul, Scrapper, Bonecruaher, and the combined Devastator below!

Before Transformers, there was Diaclone. In the early 80's, the Insector Robo were released in Takara's Diaclone line well before the birth of Transformers. Then in 2004, the colors were thrust upon the world through an e-Hobby exclusive set. Now Salvo, Shothole and Zaptrap make their way into the year 2011 thanks to customizer xaviercal and his work on FansProject's Casuality 03-05. Decked out in bright red, check it out below!

Not all great Transformers come in the form of plastic! As Lord Libidan, master of stiching, teaches us, Transformers comes in all shapes and patterns. Not only has he stitched up fan-favorites Autobots, Optimus Prime and Jetfire, he's made them 3D. Hey, not only that, but the stiched up Transformers are actually Transformers, as you'll see Optimus and Jetfire in their truck and jet alternate modes. Talk about creativity. Check them out below!

Not happy about the 'regular' Nascar Human Alliance Leadfoot? Wish the figure had more punch to it? Customiser and Seibertron.com member tommy t is thinking on the same brainwave as you and decided to give the newly released figure some love. The figure's decked with an arsenal of weapons and a top notch paint-job, and most important, not out of place with the gunslinging and armored up Human Alliance Roadbuster.

Transformers: Animated Season 4 may never have happened, but that's not going to stop fans from making it happen in toy form. Seibertron.com member and customizer astig was able to take a Deluxe Sentinel Prime and turn it into Ironhide. His earth mode was featured in the Allspark Almanac 2, and astig did a ton of work to get it done. It certainly gives the Cybertronian version a run for it's money. Check it out below!
