Seibertron.com member Mindmaster dropped by with word of two new potential Generations three-packs to be released in Korea. The listing information comes from Transformer Korea and mentions:

Decepticon Specialists
  • Galvatron
  • Octane
  • Astrotrain

Autobot Specialists
  • Ironhide
  • Mirage
  • Hound

These are said to come in special collector style packaging similar to the recently released Asian exclusive Seekers: Aces and Seekers: Elites sets.

If these are the Classics/Universe molds, Mirage, Hound, and Astrotrain are the only ones worth looking into.

Aside from giving their decos ADOS, I'm not sure how much more could be added the decos of these.

This is good news for me, I'm missing Galvatron, Astrotrain, Hound, Iron Hide and Mirage in the classics line so I will surely get these two sets somehow and they will be a great addition to my classics/generations collection.

So what's the asking price? $120? Or is that too optimistic? :roll:

I like the reissues, but the prices are just exorbitant. It's really too bad Hasbro doesn't release a version of these for around $60-80. But I guess the predominant mindset among collectors is, "Screw the deluxes! I'm selling my collection and getting all MPs!!! :DANCE: "

Bleh. MPs are too big. :BANG_HEAD:

Ooo... Gives me an opportunity to sell my older versions and feel like I have some loose cash before it all gets taken away again.
:HEADHURTS:

But, in all seriousness, I enjoy these Asia Exclusive 3-packs. At least with the Seekers, benefits included:

-Collector friendly packaging: you don't ruin a 'card' when opening them.
-Extension of the above: the box art is really nice/collectible/displayable.
-Due to the high list price, they eventually go on sale anyway (i.e. both Seeker sets are currently available for a more reasonable $90 on TFsource).
-The deco's are really nice - in some cases the best for that particular mold.

Barring the apps being terrible, I'm on board for these.

If you're a bit patient and don't mind waiting a bit after the release some buyers will break up the set and you could get Astrotrain solo and not have to buy all 3.

This will be very interesting on both factions. I personally missed out on Henkei Ironhide so I will possess him. I'm also curious on the price to see if they will be more expensive then that of the Seekers. :VEHI:

I'm really curious to see how they might deco these to be any different... or more show accurate. I could see...

Galvatron - more purple
Octane - chrome tanker
Astrotrain - G1 Toy color (light gray)

Hound - desert version (eHobby style)
Mirage - improved G1 deco OR Diaclone Red
Ironhide - improved G1 deco, or eHobby Diaclone Black

While I doubt they'd do these eHobby/Diaclone decos. I'd REALLY REALLY REALLY like them. If they put them out on the shelf, I'd snatch them up, too. Seriously, a red race car and desert jeep... and a "movie color" Ironhide. Great ideas for the shelf.

I'd also jump at a "G1" Swindle from Hound like they did in Alternators. Would be fantastic.

Corrected. I liked Octane. :roll: I really didn't have a problem with any of the classics line, but maybe I was just too star-struck about G1's coming back into retail. :-?

Unfortunately, I think the Diaclone/Movie colors are a pipe dream. They've historically focused on giving us premium G1 decos.

Posted by gothsaurus on August 19th, 2013 @ 11:38am CDT
Yeah, I'll admit they're unlikely for these sets. Maybe while the molds are on the presses they can squeeze out something for the main line or subscription that fits the bill.

Red Mirage could be a new G1 character for the main line... plus Skid-Z and Machine Wars Prowl for a club store exclusive and the subscription service.

(Skid-Z can hang out with the new versions of Scourge, Side Burn and SkyByte.)

Just sayin'. :grin:

Shattered Glass Ironhide's deco is technically an homage to his Diaclone self, so I could see the Club doing that as a convention exclusive or as a TFSS mail-away...

I wouldn't be interested in these at all, as Astrotrain, Galvatron, Ironhide, and Octane-Kor were some of the least impressive CHUGGUR molds (though Octank was a nice try that could've worked even better as a voyager than Galvy), but there's one issue no one's mentioned:

Does a Hound reissue automatically = a Ravage reissue, as was evidenced in G2 redux? If they are gang molded OSLT, and Ravage is repainted into Howlback or Stripes, I'm gonna' hafta' fork over as much as it takes to get this set, if that's what it takes to convince HasTak to never ever stop with new Masterpiece cassettes. Once we've gotten new molds of every last cassette, down to the 4 combiner pair and an official Autoscout, I might actually forgive the neutering of KOTOYS.com. I'd much rather buy a purple MP Soundwave than those 3 Autobots again, but I'll purchase ANY new cassette-related item, official or otherwise, just to send them the right message.

I wouldn't count on Ravage getting repainted into a new character. In fact, he may as well be completely omitted, despite being gang-molded.

Aw. I liked Astrotrain. He looked pretty good in each mode.

But yeah, same here. You give me a Ravage recolor and I'll be knocking down the door to buy the set.

I like Octane! I even like Astrotrain (who, aside from meh knees) looks amazing, and I like Galvatron too, even if it could definitely be better.

On the flipside, Mirage and Hound are the masterpieces here. Damn are these 2 great, even if Hound's gun is loose'ish.
Re: Asian Market Exclusive Transformers Decepticons & Autobots Specialists Three-Packs? (1512834)
Posted by Bumblevivisector on August 19th, 2013 @ 4:14pm CDT
Well, that is to say, even the worst molds from Classics and Universe 2.0 were at least okay. I have the first Hasbro versions of these 6, but really don't need more than that. Even the awesome Mirage I would only want another of for the purpose of kitbashing him into Tornado (Enemy Within guy who fought Earthquake), and I'd only want to destroy a knock-off for that purpose.

I agree Astrotrain is nice in and of himself, and it is neat how much longer he becomes in train mode, but to me he always stood out as the one guy in the first wave of Classics who was just a lateral-move from his original toy without any major improvements. Maybe it was that his gun didn't store properly, or that he should've been bigger, but even with an improved deco he's a pass for me.

Actually, the common theme for the three 'Cons seems to be that they all would've worked better as voyagers instead of deluxes!

True about them being larger! Galvatron and the triple changers need to get upsized.

Got any pics of Tornado? I'm wracking my brain to place the story and characters. Sounds familiar.

It's all semiotics. The exclusion principle is a natural law of how language evolves. It's the same reason "seeker" kept persisting when it was thought to be a fan term despite the number of fans who adamantly refused to use it. There are hundreds of TFs with aircraft alts who aren't that body-template, so any synonym that included "jet", "plane", "sky", "flight" etc. couldn't effectively stick, leading to seeker becoming THE term by process of elimination.

If you've got a better term that's usable when one's discussing a group of toys that hail from more than one of those sublines, I'd love to hear it. I don't like being reminded of that Thomas rip-off when discussing TFs either.

Thanks for beating me to Tornado Sabrblade. ;) I checked TFWiki, but I still prefer this site:

http://s90690880.onlinehome.us/jhiaxus/ ... ornado.htm

It's not so much that Classics Mirage looks like Tornado beyond being skinny and blue, as that if you untransform his back a bit, he spins around easily at the waist, sort of emulating his power.

Was he given a distinct alt in Last Stand? I had planned to mostly slice Mirage's wheels off, repaint, and say he's some sort of spinning rocket plane...kind of like FoC Blast Off now that I think about it. So yeah, not worth destroying an unbroken official toy for, but I'll get around to it someday.

Transformerasia has unveiled a new promotion for the upcoming Autobot Specialists set. While supplies last, the set comes with a free Autobot symbol earphone cap plug available at select stores in Asia. No word on what retailers will be getting the earphone cap plug or whether there will be one available for the Decepticon set.

A complimenting Decepticon set has not yet been announced as being offered with the K/P/R set. However, you'll remember there were only two ACE sets: Seekers and Coneheads. So, it's possible that more Autobots are coming your way to even the odds. :lol:

Good to know!

Hope Hound's green is the brighter shade in the link versus the more drab, muted green he seems to have in the pics in this thread.

Now to decide whether to take the gamble of selling my original MOSC Hound & Mirage figures in the hope that this set dips below $100 on clearance, much as the Seeker Ace & Elite sets did.

I need Mirage, Perceptor, and Astrotrain.
