I have completely restored all of the galleries on Seibertron.com (just in time for the 5th anniversary of the Seibertron.com galleries which were launched January 4th, 2004). I have spent the better part of the last two days restoring the 57 galleries that have been missing ever since the server crashed back in September 2008. The galleries were restored from a variety of different backups and computers that contained 99% of the original images. Most of the images had to be optimized, watermarked, resized and reuploaded once again in order to be restored. The following is a list of the galleries that were finally restored this past weekend which are available once again for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

Great work Ryan, I was under the impression it'd be a while before you got the galleries back to normal, thanks for proving me wrong!

I am extremely happy to have this monkey off my back at last. Now I can truly focus on moving forward with new galleries, Transtopia and restoring the cartoon screen capture section.

Good on ya Broham. I'm sure your baby momma was thrilled with you spending 48 slaving over a hot camera. Man is she in for a treat :P

No but seriously, I'm extremely relieved to see that you got your green Ramulus gallery back. I'd hate to have wasted the little gem below.

Thanks for getting them all back up-I'm sure it was a big PITA. I'm especially glad for the return of the Botcon Dirge and Thrust galleries. Looking forward to comparing them to the upcoming Henkei releases.

Ahh cool. That Darkwing gallery will be useful for comparing to the upcoming Universe release.

Nice stuff.

Hey everyone. Well, I was fortunate enough to be one of the members of the collector community to have a Green Ramulus carded. I actually picked this up a long time ago at the Hasbro Toy Store (before it closed) in Pawtucket, RI. It was mixed in with a couple other Transmetals 2 on the peg. I had already purchased the Roman Numeral version and the version with the 2 on it, so when I saw this one, I could not believe that there was a completely different variant altogether. I wrapped it up and put it in a box. Years later, I actually sold my entire beast wars collection, but I kept this in a box and actually forgot about it. When I cleaned out my attic, in 2007, I came across the box that contained the Green Ramulus (and a few other toys). I investigated to see how rare it actually was. I really did not find exactly how many were made, but I knew it was rare. I made the decision to get it AFA graded at the beginning of the summer. However, I was so reluctant to even ship it out because I didn't want anything to happen to it. Well, I finally received pictures of the Ramulus in my email today. It truly is a nice looking piece. It was Graded 9.0. I still don't know how many are still out there. If anyone has any information, I would love to know.
