The gallery train keeps on chuggin' along! Today's newest galleries focus on Cyberverse figures, the Commander Class, specifically. Both figures in this spotlight are redecos of existing figures, and in the case of Huffer, he's also a remold.

Speaking of which, first up is Huffer. He's based on the Beast Hunters Cyberverse Commander Class figure of Trailcutter, and both redecoed remolds feature a new head, remolded shoulders (to include cannons), plus various blades on their bodies to differentiate from the original mold, PRID Commander Class Ironhide. Decoed up in G1 Huffer orange and blue, he's an homage to the original figure but has become quite the battle ready tough guy, which is where he differs from the G1 original, greatly.

And last, but not least, we end this spotlight on our galleries with Beast Blade Optimus Prime. This figure is a redeco of the original Beast Hunters Commander Class Optimus Prime who is also the basis for the newly released Voyager Class "simplified" Optimus. (Which we reported on here, and have a gallery of, here.)

This Optimus is redecoed in the same color scheme as the Weaponizers repaint Beast Tracker Optimus (which can be seen here.) and comes with the battlewing shield.

To see the full galleries of both figures, click on their respective images, below:

The Seibertron gallery machine just keeps on chuggin' along, bringing you new goodies to feast upon. Our newest galleries involve the Prime universe, more specifically, Beast Hunters and feature the Takara Tomy releases of the following figures:

Hunter Arcee (a redeco/remold of PRID Arcee, which you can see here)

Hunter Bulkhead (A redeco based on an US Beast Hunters mold, which you can see here)

Hunter Wheeljack (a redeco/remold of PRID Wheeljack, which you can see here)

Hunter Soundwave (who is not only a redeco/remold of PRID Soundwave, but he's also partnered with Ravage, instead of Laserbeak. You can see the original duo here)

And now, onto the picture links:

Who else suspects that if the US releases looked like this, they wouldn't be clearancing them for $5 each.
Cobra :lol:

They look too similar to the originals then, so they may actually be worse off with less knowledgeable customers. :lol:

And I'm slowly falling in love with the Beast retoolings, thanks to Go! Ratchet (redubbed Flatline) and BH Dreadwing. I'm looking at Arcee and Starscream now... :oops:

Cobraaaaaaa!
I was going to say Soundwave looks good now that he doesn't look like a macaw, but now I'm disappointed they didn't go full Cobra Commander on him. The screenface would make a perfect metal faceplate.

Are those really GO show, or only GO packages?

Just packaging. The only figures featured in the DVD anime shorts are the Predacons, the Samurai and Shinobi Teams, and Optimus Exprime.

Transformers Go! was a short Japanese animated series that took the place of Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters in Japan and was available on DVD's that came with TV Magazine and TV Kun. The Autobots featured the Swordbot Samurai team and the subject of this gallery-the Swordbot Shinobi team which consists of Gekisoumaru, Hishoumaru and Sensuimaru. This trio of brand new molds combine in three different ways with each bot forming the top of the combined mode.

Also featured is galleries of the promotional Arms Microns that came from certain Japanese retailers with a purchase of 3,000 yen of Transformers Go! product. These Arms Microns are Shou, Sen and Geki. As always click the following pictures to see the full gallery.

Good timing, just got the Kabaiya Samurai team candy toys in the mail.

The Ninja team consists of two of the best figures original to Go!: Gekisoumaru and Hishoumaru; and the absolute worst of the line: Sensuimaru. Ganoh is still my favorite.

I think this is the first time I've really noticed how each Kabuto of the Shinobi Team attaches to each of them in altmode.

Ha, what funny timing! I got the Phoenix and the Shark last week. I enjoy them, but glad I got them on a steep discount. Will probably grab the Lion at some point too.

Any chance of these ever being imported into the US for sale at retail? I dig them!

I'd say no, given their unorthodox price points and (really) Japanese styling.

Steep discount, you say? Got a link to where you got yours? ;)

They've been on Amazon (all of the Go! figures) for dirt cheap for imports.

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss? ... SENSUIMARU

You can get them for less than US retail ($19 shipped for one of them, $22 shipped for the other, I just got an extra Kenzan for $30 shipped the other day from Amazon to fix the problem with mine having a broken pony tail from the factory ... urgh).

Continuing in our gallery offerings here at Seibertron.com, we have a blast from the not so distant past with three Transformers: Prime, Beast Hunters and Go! figures. By clicking on any of the images below you will access the full gallery for the larger incarnations of two faction leaders, Autobots and Predacons, with the latter in both Hasbro and Takara garbs!

Guren Dragotron and Beast Fire Predaking both share the same mold, and come with Infernum Blades, accessories, as well as an impressive wingspan and electronics, but different decos, with red, black and yellow (and the name) replacing the orange, black and silver of the Predacons Rising figure in the Go! version. Optimus Prime, on the other hand, shows off an impressive cleaver sword, shield and rotating Firebreath Cyclocannons and electronics.

I recently got done watching all of Go! not to long ago, and Dragotron's Guren form was pretty cool.

Interestingly enough, before Dragotron assumes this form, the episodes that came immediately before his awakening used the Beast Fire Predaking deco:

Red Predaking is Best Predaking.

Our Transformers Go! galleries continue, as we proudly present Go! Kenzan Kuromusha Version and Gekisoumaru Kurojishi Version!

Gekisoumaru and Kenzan are the latest to step in front of the camera, but these two are the black repaint versions.

Clarification of the purpose of these remolds courtesy of fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade:
Sabrblade wrote:These represent toy-only powered-up forms of the two, after having been enhanced by the powers of the Black Legendisc.


Kenzan was a TRU Japan exclusive repaint of Kenzan, and you can see the original here and Gekisoumaru is a Nemesis repaint of the original mold, which you can also see here.

To see the rest of our Go! galleries, click the following links here and here.

These aren't Nemesis versions. They're still good guys. These represent toy-only powered-up forms of the two, after having been enhanced by the powers of the Black Legendisc.
