New Galleries: Million Publishing Generations Goshooter with Go Shuta

New Galleries: Million Publishing Generations Goshooter with Go Shuta

Head On! - Join us here at Seibertron.com for first Japanese distribution of the Generations Nightbeat mold - in our newest gallery instalment! In the Japanese G1 series Masterforce, GoShooter was originally a Head Master, but in this iteration his human companion Shuta will be playing the part of a Minicon/Targetmaster borrowed from Generations Blazemaster, and the figure was the winner of a Million Publishing fan poll way way back.
New Galleries: Takara Tomy Transformers Legends Arcee, Windblade and Chromia

New Galleries: Takara Tomy Transformers Legends Arcee, Windblade and Chromia

Female Autobots - Seibertron.com is proud to bring you some great new galleries featuring the highly anticipated Takara Tomy Transformers Legends LG-10 Arcee, LG-11 Chromia, and LG-12 Windblade! What's most likely the focal point of the trio is the incredibly G1 faithful take on the recent Generations Arcee mold, followed by the more accurate and intricately painted IDW fan made sweetheart Windblade, and finally the heavily retooled Chromia. There are some pretty big differences between these Takara Tomy ladies and their Hasbro counterparts, which also sport some fun mini-comics as well. You can see everything here!
New Galleries: Legends Class Nemesis Prime with Spinister and Cliffjumper with Suppressor

New Galleries: Legends Class Nemesis Prime with Spinister and Cliffjumper with Suppressor

Legends - Even the smallest of Transformers can't escape the galleries of Seibertron.com. These newest subjects include Generations Legends Class Nemesis Prime with Spinister and Cliffjumper with Supressor. They are redecos of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee from the same line only with switched Target Master partners. Speaking of their Target Master partners, let's take a look at them. Spinister is a redeco of Blazemaster getting his name and deco from G1 Spinister while Supressor is a redeco of Roller.
New Galleries: Movie Advanced AEON Exclusive Wheeljack and AD17 Darkside Soundwave

New Galleries: Movie Advanced AEON Exclusive Wheeljack and AD17 Darkside Soundwave

Wheeljack and Darkside Soundwave - Seibertron.com is proud to present our two newest Transformers galleries: Movie Advanced AEON Exclusive Wheeljack and AD17 Darkside Soundwave. Wheeljack sports a G1 deco and a brand new head that looks like a mix of his G1 self and...the Matrix?? Sadly, all of the accessories have been stripped and it's just the figure, but at least the fans will finally get the figure they were hoping for. Darkside Soundwave takes on a Soundblaster deco, and looks classy doing so. Again, still no accessories, but the figure rocks all on it's own. At first glance, it looks like Soundwave took a dip in a vat of ink, but the black does look good on him and the silver paint apps bring the rest of the look together to sweeten the deal.

Posted March 29th, 2015 at 9:25pm by shajaki - 482 views

NEW! Seibertron.com is proud to present our newest gallery, Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-23 Exhaust! This figure has quite the sorted history, what with legal issues and rumors galore of cancellations. While Hasbro Asia did actually cancel distribution of Exhaust (and sadly his collector coin) it didn't stop Takara from releasing him domestically. Thankfully, he's not impossible to acquire and he's now a part of our vast and growing Seibertron Galleries. He transforms into an officially - Read More

New / better quality images of the upcoming Astrotrain and Blitzwing Platinum G1 reissue

NEW! While we have had stock photos covering every mode of the upcoming polarizing Platinum Astrotrain and Blitzwing G1 reissue set, they have all been rather small. Hobby Brinquedos, the same Brazillian online retailer who gave us high quality images of the upcoming Cyber Battalion figures, has put up some very high quality versions of the photos already revealed as well as a brand new stock photo of the Jet and Shuttle mode where the later is shockingly not mistransformed this time. The new - Read More

A few months ago, an image from an Italian retailer hinted at a Sideswipe that could transform in 3 steps, leading us to believe that a Hyperchange Sideswipe was coming soon. A new listing from Iceland's Toysrus website now exists for TRANSFORMERS Hyper Change Hero Figure Sideswipe. However, there are no images of the product (same with Steeljaw who we know is a reality). Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all news regarding upcoming Robtos in Disguise - Read More

Fellow Seibertronian Tsutsukakushi has brought to our attention some great new images of the upcoming Cyber Battalion line 11 inch assortment. These photos give us a far better idea of the limited articulation we will find on these figures. The 11 inch assortment thus far includes only Optimus and Bumblebee. These images were obtained from Brazilian retailer Hobby Brinquedos which reinforces the Brazilian connection to these toys, since it was a Brazillian Hasbro catalogue which first revealed - Read More

A very different take, perhaps, on the Transformers franchise, was brought to the stage and under the spotlight by Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster, in the IDW Publishing Transformers: Legacy book. Showcasing the art that adorned the packaging of the toys from the early Generation 1, 2 and their Japanese counterparts and continuations, the book has been extremely well received in the Transformers fandom (and outside of it), and you can hear the Twincast Podcast talk to one of its authors here, and - Read More
