Seibertron is at it again! He's made yet another photo gallery for our viewing pleasure. This time, his subject is Fall Of Cybertron Deluxe Wave 1. In this set of galleries, you'll see the newly reformatted Optimus Prime, his lieutenant Jazz, and the shortpacked figure of the case, Shockwave.

We hope you enjoy.

Only bought Shockwave but I'm trying to size up that FOC Prime figure to see if the UltraMagnus mold will be worth buying at least.

Galleries are always great.


I'll be picking up all three.


I like the FOC Optimus better than WFC Optimus. In alt mode FOC has a more authorative look from the front and the back is "cleaner." Grant it from the side WFC looks like the big brother and FOC looks like the 3rd cousin but I usually have my bots in bot mode.
:MAXIMAL:

compared to all the other generations figures we've had these have to be the least impressive, and yet they're the most expensive. I did want jazz & shockwave but after seeing the galleries i can easily pass.

Hmmm i sort of feel like iv'e got these figures already (i haven't) but having seen them for so long now and all the possible poses and what have ya i just hope when i get the chance to get them ill still be excited.

I like these figures. I felt much better about their size when I stood G1 Jazz next to FOC Jazz. Diecast and chrome parts aside, we're still getting a much larger toy height wise than we did for G1.

I was impressed with Optimus as a toy, despite disliking his chest's design. After all the hate that toy had gotten, I think it just needed to be put into some awesome poses for me to photograph, which was my first impression of the figure way back in February when I saw this at Toy Fair. However, the design of the character is flawed. The chest simply looks terrible, which is how I felt about the general shape of the War for Cybertron design as well. Whether you realize it or not, the traditional Optimus Prime chest has a very human like muscular structure where the windshield represents humanoid pecs, and the truck's grill represents a humanoid abdomen. Transformers Animated took advantage of this look best with a super-hero look.

Shockwave is pretty awesome. Just needs to be a voyager class instead!

Seibertron, I don't know if you did this on purpose, but Alternate mode Shockwave is partially mistransformed. The wing tips should face forwards, not back as they are shown in the stock photos.

You have them facing back. It's an easy step to miss.

The size difference isn't as bad as I feared. I wish Shockwave and Swindle's heights were swapped (how does a thin bot end up shorter than a chunky bot?) but as a whole the Decepticons look fairly good scale-wise.

Autobots, on the other hand...
Image
To be fair, the cars should really be a class below the others (trucks, tanks, jets, dinosaurs, etc.).

Nice gallery Seiber :D. Not lying here but to me FoC Optimus is the best and I can say this for sure since I have all 3 of em. FoC Shockwave is cool but he's too thin X_X...

PS : Cant wait for Bruticus gallery. I know people may hate me for this but I think FoC Bruticus is much better than Collosus. Collosus just looks too plain for me and not to mention requires add-ons. I like my combiners without add-ons thank you~

I think the one big turn off on these for me now - seeing them with the WfC figures - is the lack of the energon veins. :( Sure, some parts are painted, like on Shockwave, but it doesn't have the accnts and clear plastic appropriately placed like it was for the WfC guys. Sad face, I'm feeling the hurt now. :(

I thought something looked off. Can't say I like them that way. They look like the vehicular equivalent of Vulcan ears.

The Seibertron.com SDCC 2012 Exclusive "Game Accurate" Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Bruticus Box Set galleries are now live! This set features premium book style packaging with a removable insert that showcases the Combaticons in their combined Bruticus form, plus some very nice artwork.

Just as you would expect everybody gets their own full high quality gallery: Onslaught, Vortex, Blast Off, Swindle, Brawl, and of course Bruticus.

This is just the first outing for this set of molds. They will be released individually at mass retail with alternate brighter decos. They will be getting the G2 treatment in a BigBadToyStore/Amazon shared exclusive box set. Lastly (that we know of) they will be repainted and retooled into the Wreckers with a Ruination combined form.

Enjoy the galleries below:

If I remember right Ryan isn't a big fan of the unlicensed figures. Not to say he doesn't have any but I gather he wants to "catalog" and promote all of the official releases in his photo galleries.

Definitely not a fan of unlicensed figures, but the FansProject Bruticus set was just one thing I couldn't let go of yet. Wanted to use it for comparison pics in this gallery. Pics are there toward the end of the gallery on the last page. You can click on the image below for additional pictures.

I can't be the only person bothered by Vortexes connecter being black instead of purple like the others. It just stands out so much to me and makes it look gaudy or like it's a piece from a different set.

i suddenly dont feel so bad about missing out on this guy. Blast-off and Vortex just seem to bug me looking at both the sdcc and retail release pics, the others look ok either way and im actually liking the retail Onslaughts color scheme as it looks pretty G1. when i get the retail versions i think im gonna give the flyers new paint jobs and hope for the best

Wow, that's pretty soon. I gotta agree with Storm...it's just off a bit. but, I did see a review where the guy moved up something on brawl and it gave the legs a more even look. that way the right wasn't so high up and the left/brawl didn't show the joint so much. Big improvement. Now how to make the arms look better? Individually I think the bots are top notch....just haven't got the combo...well..perfect.

Can't wait for my G2 Bruticus.

Curious as to how this set would look with retail Swindle and Onslaught swapped in. That'd be the G1/game accurate Bruticus, not this nearly all-brown version.

I really wish they used the 'big eyes' head design for Swindle as opposed to the generic visor. Even just something like this:

Or rather the rest shoulda been black, too, because the bright lavender sticks out extra crappy.

I think the whole thing's just been badly conceived from the get-go. There were times in the past where I felt that Takara Henkei repaints were substantial improvements over the Hasbro originals, but in this case, it really feels to me like proper color schemes have been intentionally withheld for a later release. I can't get behind that. Blast Off and Vortex (Razorclaw) are hideous, not to mention Ruination. If they were going to just straight-up homage the RID combiner they should have stuck with the original names. Looking forward to the Henkei release that'll feature a yellow and purple Impactor, a completely blue Whirl, etc.

Awesome gallery Seiber :D. Been waiting for this for weeks now. I gotta say for me the best out of 5 would be Onslaught. The 2nd would be Blast-off and 3rd would be Swindle. I hope Hasbro/TT will release more combiners like this in the future. Bruticus is just so frickin awesome !!!

PS : Yeah it bothers me too that the port for Vortex is black @_@...Kinda wonders why they did that >.<...

Kudos on your dedication to this gallery, it's really something. As for Bruticus. Still ugly. I like Brawl and Swindle, I might get those at retail if their decos haven't been screwed up too much. I also wonder what the Wreckers are gonna look like, and who will get whose mold. If it's gonna happen.

Posted by MeGrimlock! on August 3rd, 2012 @ 1:15pm CDT
I really want to like this set, but the proportions in the combined Bruticus mode just bug me for some reason. The legs are ok, and the Vortex arm looks pretty good; but the Blast Off arm looks a bit too long to me. The torso looks a little too small in comparison to the limbs as well. I think this guy would look much better if they had just bit the bullet and made Onslaught a voyager to help bulk out his torso a bit.

Maybe I'll like this better once I see a few more reviews of the set and grab the retail version (the colors really don't bug me). :CON:

The brand new molds are Starscream and Kickback, while the remolds are Sideswipe, Ultra Magnus and Air Raid who are remolded from Jazz, Optimus Prime and Shockwave respectively. So what are you waiting for? Click away on the pics to see the full galleries.

I have Starscream, Ultra Magnus, and Kickback. All three are very nice figures, and I highly recommend them if you're trying to assemble a neo-G1 cast or a FOC cast.

Ryan, you do such a great job with the lighting on these photos. You almost make them look as good as their Takara counterparts. I wish Hasbro would stay away from off white plastic on future Starscreams. I popped on Hasbro Sideswipe and Magnus. But for the Cons, I had to go with Takara. I stayed away from Air Raid/Fireflight because I considered it to be a crappy attempt to re-purpose the Shockwave mold. They should have just let it be exclusive to Shockwave the same way the classics Galvatron mold was never repurposed.

I actually like Sideswipe a lot more than I expected, despite his scary, soulless eyes.

Starscream, of course, you gotta have to go with the other 'Cons, and Ultra Magnus owns his mold so much more than Prime did before him.

However, Kickback is the true standout, and the best insect-former we've had in years (looking down upon at you Hardshell). Almost the entire wave is worth owning.

Air Raid... uh...

...has a nice sword accessory? ;)

What a great-looking bunch of figures. :)

It's a shame Hasbro went and short-packed Kickback though, there's only 1 per case and local collectors are hoarding them because it's a troop-builder. I've only been able to get ahold of Starscream and Sideswipe so far.

Starscream looks amazing. The transformation's pretty simple but he's defintely one of the best Screamers so far.

Sideswipe is an improvement on Jazz and comes with a cool BFG. Those are probably the best things I can say about him. It's just not a great mold, lol.

I'm working through all 11 Data Disc galleries right now. As much as I love my full time job of working on Seibertron.com, working on galleries like this reminds me that I still have to do things that I don't enjoy even with being self employed. 11 galleries of Transformers that turn into "discs" is not the most exciting thing to do, especially when you take as many pics as I do of these damn things.

At least I get to have a beer while having Avengers on in the background as I'm cropping all of these photos. Beats a sharp stick in the eye ... just not very exciting.
