The lastest galleries to be featured on Seibertron.com is wave 4 and 5 of the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters figures. They are all repaint/retool of existing figures. Wave 4 consists of Beast Hunters Arcee, Knock Out and Vertebreak which are repaint/retools of RID Arcee, Knock Out and Laserback respectively. Wave 5 is rounded out by Night Shadow Bumblebee and Prowl. Night Shadow Bumblebee is a straight up repaint of BH Bumblebee and Prowl is a repaint of BH Smokescreen with a new head.

Prowl looks awesome, but doesn't make me think of Prowl funnily enough. It'd be better if he'd seen some screen-time. I'll probably get him.

Arcee and Knock Out simply don't impress. Couldn't care less.

Vertebreak is OK, but between Lazerback and Gaidora I think I've got enough of that mold.

Night Shadow Bumblebee is just stunning. He'll be bought and re-purposed.

Just picked up Prowl the other day. I'd prefer him with a white helmet, but not a bad figure, nonetheless.

Paint Arcee the same pale blue/silver all over, change the color of the head crest, and you'd have a decent Prime Chromia. If she can't be blue, at least she can be silver/chrome colored.

Also paint Night Shadow Bumblebee's yellow parts teal or blue and you'd have a decent stand in for a Prime-style Nightracer, since it's a totally different head.

Basically, I want more fembots. :grin:

I just noticed a couple more new galleries on the front page, including for S.2. I hate telling this over and over, but...

S.2's assembly instructions contain a nasty error!

The error's in the rods connecting the backpack to the main body. Put short, according to the instructions, the order is:

1. backpack - 2. middle of rod (stopper) - 3. wings - 4. main body

That is incorrect, the actual order is:

1. backpack - 2. wings - 3. middle of rod (stopper) - 4. main body

The wings actually cover up the stoppers, plus with the wings moving back one position everything locks properly in place (rods going all the way into the main body).

In case you're wondering his GO! repaint Jin's instructions contain the same error.

I figured this out with Jin, but thought that I had just misread the instructions with my inability to read Japanese and all. ;)

I got lucky and had no problems disassembling Jin (surprisingly since he's made of the supposedly more fragile translucent plastic), but didn't have the same luck with S.2 who endured some extreme stress marks to the point of the clips almost breaking. I boiled the stressed parts in water and ran them under cool water after I was satisfied that everything was back to how it should be. I reassembled S.2 after this and had no problems whatsoever. Word to the wise ... just be EXTREMELY careful with taking these guys apart if you attempt to reassemble them.

I guess I got lucky. I read on a Japanese toy blog that described the issue, after I had assembled S.2. Stupid me... I carefully widened the clip using the width of a scissor, in order to extract the rod from the backpack, slid off the wings and reassembled him. Without ill effect.

Does the warm water trick work with clear plastics as well? If so, I wish I had known about that sooner. I actually broke my Shadow C.L. and Shadow Balo, the plastic is really brittle around the clips it seems :sad:

Balo is the one that comes with Skywarp, right? He was the first one I had break when I was doing the galleries last year for the first wave or so. That really turned me off to the whole "build a Micron" bit (and seeing the damaged stickers on many of them simply from transforming them has really turned me off of the whole Arms Micron line). I'm not a fan of spending $30 to $60 on a toy to only have it break the first time I put a clip together or try to disassemble one for the first time.

Boiling water gets rid of most stress marks. It is my preferred way of fixing Transformers and straightening out soft rubber parts like swords, antennas, smoke stacks, cannons, etc. Boiling water won't melt plastic (though it did melt the paint on a vintage MOTU Mer-Man head that I had boiled too long) whereas using a lighter or heat gun can melt the plastic. The only draw back that I've experienced with boiling water is that it has discolored some plastic which is frustrating to deal with, whereas a lighter or heat gun won't discolor it. It's all kind of a gamble and just takes a lot of practice, patience and the willingness to replace a figure if you damage it.

Either way, watching stress marks disappear and feeling the plastic clips on Microns restrengthen after doing this makes it all worthwhile and extremely satisfying.

Does anyone else see the resemblance between Smokesecreen's Micron and Devcon?

And Pral homages Prowl, Jayz homages Jazz, Sais homages (Movie) Sideswipe, and... I think that's all the homaging Arms Microns.

No, I didn't forget O.P. I know many think he looks like Shockwave, but the face doesn't match (in that he actually has one, whereas Shockwave doesn't). ;)

It's that time again, a new Seibertron.com gallery!

This time, our subject is Sharkticon Megatron, an extensive remold of the Prime: Robots In Disguise Megatron mold, from the current Beast Hunters line. This version of Megatron has been released in two versions, with a couple of name changes on the packaging on the second version. We previously reported that running change for Megatron here, and because of that, we'll start off this newsbit with those pictures:





And now, onto the 'con himself, Sharkticon Megatron!




A groupshot of the current and past uses of the Megatron mold, both US and Japanese:


This time in robot mode:


The ever raging battle between Megatron and his nemesis, Optimus Prime!




And you can find the full gallery (197 photos!) by clicking this link: http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... tron/3054/

It's amazing how an epic redeco can dramatically change a figure.

I keep wanting to think Sou is homageing someone as well, but I can't place who!

I just can't stop thinking about how much sicker this figure would have looked in black instead of brown. (Sharkticon Megatron, that is)

This needs to be reused somewhere. Like, for the Sharkticons or Seacons or something besides this retool I have no interest in.

Alright,, I have not watched TF Prime or TF Prime Beast Hunters but man these figures looks just awesome, It makes me want to watch TF Prime, lol, but currently I'm working my way out of The Headmasters.

Again, TF Prime/beast hunters are looking sweet.
