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:

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 ?

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.

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)
Image

3. TakaraTomy Jet Vehicon:
Image

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!

I'm kinda surprised it took this long to create a Thrust-Waspinator hybrid. I mean, it's a very out-there concept, but we've had this cyborg-wasp mold for so long...

I know I asked this before, but how many TFs can do a gunface sort of thing, where the robot head is replaced/covered/transforms into a gun? Not including instances where a bot can shoot/spit things with their normal noggin.

Maybe Dirgegun and BWII cartoon Bighorn were the only ones who can shoot projectiles from their face before Lockdown. I wouldn't count Dinobot or Unicron because they had laser eyes.

By far, the only Transformers toys with gunfaces.

Switched upper arms I believe. Currently there are a lot of QC fails:

- Cannonball has switched upper legs, and weak plastic on the hips of some figures which cracks easily
- The Wingspan Type Pirate has the wrong fender: it uses the car type which causes a gap in vehicle mode. Apparently nobody realised the Jet Vehicon mold has its own fender, separate from both RiD and the retooled AM Car types.

How To Fix Your Scorponok:
Sabrblade wrote:The back pieces of his armpits are each upside-down and on the wrong sides of the body.

To use Energon Scorponok for visual reference, it's the orange armpit pieces seen in these pictures, which are purple on the BotCon toy:

Image
Image

Notice how, in these pics, the pieces each have a slope that runs down the body. On the BotCon figure, since the pieces were swapped and attached upside-down, the slopes run upward on the figure instead of downward.

Thus, the big shoulder pieces are unable to fold outward all the way, making him look like he's constantly holding his shoulders in a mid-shrug position, as seen here:

Image

Instead of like this:

Image

The way to fix this is to simply unscrew both pieces with a small Philips head screwdriver, and reattach them on their opposite sides of the body in their correct positions.

But note that front half pieces of the armpits are NOT swapped (at least on mine, they weren't), so those may not need to be swapped either. Take note of their position in this pic (the blue pieces with the gold outlines behind the translucent yellow side cannons):

Image

This is the correct position for these two pieces, and Ryan's figure seems to have gotten it right for these two pieces as well (which are now orange with a green outline):

Unlike Hoist, though, this one is easily fixable.

yeah... dont really know if im going to tackle hoists shoulders. i can probably live with it.

i have no doubt this is posted elsewhere, but sine its sort of on topic i feel it requires reposting. this is seibs scorponok fixing video. i found it very informative and plan to use it to make sure all my scorpies wont fall to pieces.

My Iacon Package arrived today. So glad to have an extra Scorponok nestled safely away, forever protected from the harsh elements of the world.

While the other Scorponok I bought waits for the arrival of Club Treadshot, to lead him, Botcon 2009 Banzai-Tron and Generations Soundblaster to glory.

As Iacon packages are hitting people's homes from BotCon 2014, Seibertron.com is proud to present another installation, or a redux, if you will, of Transformers Collectors' Club Subscription Service exclusives: the little dude who sees and records everything - Rewind! Remolded from the United Cassetticon figure, we first saw Chromedome's conjux endura in the clip below, directly from a BotCon hotel room, and posted a small teaser gallery too. But head below and click on any image for the new, improved, full gallery!

Cool toy. Any chance for a gallery on Eject? He can't fight alone.

*ahem* The mystery figure's gallery is being worked on. However, in keeping with the Club's wishes, we're not going to disclose the identity of the gallery whenever we showcase it.

Such a shame that this guy is a exclusive, I would have loved to own him. Or any version of the mold, for that matter.

Aww, no photos of him with his FOC counterpart? :-(

Are you ready for another Seibertron.com fully detailed, highly defined gallery? We are proud to present the Transformers Collectors' Club Subscription Service 2.0 mystery figure - and we're making sure it remains so, thanks to a newly implemented feature of the site's galleries!

That's right, we won't be showing you images right here, but rather linking you to the first Members Only gallery on Seibertron.com. You must be logged in to click on the images and reveal what's beneath, so as not to ruin the fun for anyone still waiting for their own new toy. So buckle up, brace for spoilers, and head to the gallery if you're ready for its sheer magnificence. We'll be holding on to some red banners for a while yet.

Oooh!

... uh, any recommended photos? i.e. "image #__ is a good view of bot mode, #___ for alt mode, #___ compared with ____". I'd rather not have to rummage thru 130+ pics...

The first Members Only Gallery? There's going to be more? I thought this was a one time thing. Guess there are going to be more mystery figures in the future. I GUESS.

Have you tried the new image visualiser? It's really easy (and fast) to switch between images with keyboard arrows!

It's the first, not first of many. But it is a feature we may use again! :D

Does this make anyone else wonder if Has/Tak will ever make a Twincast out of that Blaster mold? They already made a Soundblaster, so why not? Also I like this "Secret/Hidden" gallery idea; for some reason, it feels "special". 8)

But in case..

4 for alt mode, 15 for alt mode comparison, 32 for G1 comparison, 45 bot mode, 109 bot mode feature, 116 bot comparison.

Okay this is fine and all, but they aren't showing up for me. I click on the first few pics and I get a white page with technobabble on it. Then later pics just go to blank pages, the same with the image pop up. Just sayin' something's the matter with it.

BTW, will this gallery eventually be available for public viewing?
