The galleries of Seibertron has updated with the BotCon 2014 Pirates Vs. Knights box set. Pirate Scorponok is a repaint of Energon Scorponok with a newly added headmaster feature. That headmaster is Olin Zarak who is a retool of Spike who is the headmaster unit for Cerebros who is the headmaster unit for Fortress Maximus. Got that? Good. Next up is Pirate Cannonball who is a repaint of Transformers Prime Ratchet with a new head. Knight Devcon is a repaint of Generations Scourge with a new head. Knight Ginrai is a repaint of Classics Optimus Prime. Last but not least is Pirate Ferak who is a repaint of Universe Cyclonus while his target master Pirate Tornado is a repaint of Nightstick.

No joke, no lie, Tornado right here is the biggest reason I wanted this set, being the character/figure I was looking forward to the most. :mrgreen:

Is there a toy gallery for the Ginrai on the right?

I really need to stop looking at this picture. It makes me want to drink orange Sunkist and eat Starbursts.

I've almost completed the gallery! Hopefully I'll have the photography done this weekend. It's what I'm planning on working on this weekend.

Nice galleries as always.

Has anyone recieved their non attendee set in the mail yet from funpub ? Im still waiting. I called them almost 2 weeks ago and they said they had not "unloaded the truck" yet. Why were "non attendee" sets loaded in the truck in the first place ?

i have a trip to make to the post office today for a couple parcels, unless its one of those then i havent received mine yet. i seem to recall when i ordered mine that it said it would be shipped out in august. seemed excessive, but waddya gonna do eh?

as always, galleries rock! even turned me around on cannonball and devcon. only figure i was "meh" about was cannonball but he looks pretty kickass. and while i liked devcon, i heard some negativity about the head sculpt. i dont see anything wrong with it! cant wait to get my set!

You question my news post?! :-x

:P

I did not know that, I could go fix it. I might, later. I will.


they're repaints. No need to change the news story. All you have to do is swap the rear fenders for the Dread Pirate Crew Clones.

Is that doable? I considered trying it myself, but I wouldn't know where to start or even if it can be done.

And is the Hasbro Car Vehicon rear fender compatible with the Takara Jet Vehicon mold?

They're swapped in the Seibertron.com galleries. All you have to do is pop them off and put it on the other one.

I may try that, thanks.

The first instance I noticed something was wrong with the Jet's fender was when I noticed how it wouldn't fold all the way down behind its back as far as the Car's fender would. There were little plastic notches behind the Jet's shoulder that kept it from folding all the way back, and which were not present on the Car's shoulders. I hope swapping them will make some better difference.

I was reading somewhere else that something else is wrong with that part to make it compatible with the Jet Vehicon mold but I didn't really figure out what needed to be fixed or modified. If someone wants to point us in the right direction, I'm all ears!

In the meantime, I took care of the simple swap to get them close enough to how they're supposed to be.

Is it just me, or has there been an abnormal count of QC issues this year? Switched parts on Cannonball and the Vehicons, weak plastic on some figures (like two Cannonballs and a Flareup in Japan)... :-?

Nah, it's just me.

Misassembled, yet easily fixable, shoulders on Scorponok.

I'm sorry, but Midnight_Fox is still correct. There are 3 versions of the rear fender for the Prime Vehicon mold:

1. Hasbro version (Left) and the retooled TakaraTomy Arms Micron Version (Right)


3. TakaraTomy Jet Vehicon:


The Jet Vehicon version has no exhausts, and a diamond-shaped pattern. The Dread Pirate Crew uses both car versions (RiD and AM), but not the jet version.

As you know by now, Club Subscription 2.0 Thrustinator is beginning to ship to subscribers, which we reported on right here, we also have a preview gallery of him right here and even a video review here!

And now, we have the full Thrustinator gallery for your perusal. Thrustinator is a merging of Beast Wars Waspinator and Beast Machines Thrust. An homage to the BM storyline where it's revealed that Vehicon General Thrust is powered by the spark of Waspinator. The original figure was known as Dirgegun, from Beast Wars II (a Japanese exclusive line and TV show.) and now, Hasbro's take on the mold is finally available to the fans!
