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:

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

Yep. The same guy who guest starred in G1 Smokescreen's G1 cartoon spotlight episode "The Gambler". ;)


Leo Prime's Micron is an homage to Beast Wars II's Moon also.
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). ;)


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.

I love this.
It's like a Deep One version of Megatron's original Voyager mold.

It think it's being reused for the Predacons Rising line. Isn't it on [spoiler]Unicron[/spoiler] Megatron?

^ Is it? Still, I want to see it used on something besides Megatron repaints.

Unicron Megatron is not Predacon Rising, and he has the regular symbol:

Seibertron has been really busy lately, keeping the camera in seemingly constant use, and has provided us with even more new galleries for us to enjoy. This time, we have TakaraTomy's Transformers Go! Bakudora (a redeco and head remold of Beast Hunters Ripclaw, transitioning from female to male), Gaidora (a redeco and head remold of Beast Hunters Lazerback/Vertebreak) and Dragotron (a slight redeco of Beast Hunters Predaking).

Up first:

Transformers Go! Dragotron





Followed by:

Transformers Go! Bakudora





And last, but not least:

Transformers Go! Gaidora





And we end this news note with a teamshot of the Go! figures, followed by a shot of them with their US counterparts:

The Evil Oni Emperor has come himself. As well as two of his Predacon Four Oni. 8)

That Predacon army shot looks sick. I can't wait to have them all displayed like that.

I do prefer the Go! colors on these molds, but I still prefer Ripclaw being female, so she wins. I'd rather she be ugly and a female character, than handsome and yet another male drone.

Bakudora is the best hands down. In the show and in plastic, doesn't matter, he still looks good 8)

Another week, another Seibertron.com gallery. This time, TakaraTomy's Transformers GO! Hunter Ratchet, a redeco of a retool! (The original mold being Transformers Prime: Robots In Disguise Ratchet, of course.) And not only is he sporting a new deco, he's also switched sides!

Transformers Go! Hunter Ratchet


First up, the bot himself:



Rockin' his new vehicle mode with the US Beast Hunters and Movie universe versions:







A few bot mode shots with the other Ratchets:





And last, but not least, the Dark Energon powered Decepticon with his Predacon Oni allies:



(Please note that you can see the Movie universe Ratchet galleries for both Voyager and Deluxe Classes as well as the rest of our extensive galleries.)

Predacons =/= Decepticons. Only the Go! Predacons are Oni, not the Decepticons ;)

As for Ratchet switching sides, I took a look at the bio, and noticed "Dark Energon" being mentioned. Maybe Ratchet had a little mishap with the stuff?

Ah, but I didn't say he was Oni. I said Oni teammates. The Stunticons and Constructicons had Decepticon teammates. Even though their labels are different, they're still the same side.

I went ahead and clarified. Hopefully *THIS* will make people happy... >:oP
