Here we are once again, fresh out of Botcon 2011 with more entries into the Seibertron Galleries. Come join us as we take a detailed look at four more figures in our ongoing quest for 2500 galleries in 2011.

On tap for you today we have DOTM Air Raid. Air Raid is a repaint of ROTF Thrust and is Takara only for now.

Wal-Mart exclusive 2-pack Optimus Prime (in space) and Commetor. These are both also repaints. Optimus is a repaint of the HFTD Battle Blades Optimus Prime but now sports Takara's battle hooks instead of blades. Comettor is a repaint of deluxe Landmine.

Last but not least ROTF Ultimate Bumblebee. You can click on the pics at any time to see the full galleries. Enjoy!

Is it wrong that I think Air Raid is standing in as my Classics Broadside? Needs to be modded to get three modes, but colors, and one alt, and robot mode, look pretty spot on (for an updated version of course). WEll, and of course, he needs to be bigger!

Air Raid : Hated the mould cause of the kibbles everywhere but love the paint apps.

Optimus Prime : LOATHE the mould and the paint apps on him just make me want to crush every single figure of this guy -.-...

Comettor : Very nice paint apps and the mould is not that bad. The only thing stopping me from buying him is that I need to buy Optimus Prime with it...

Ultimate Bumblebee : This is one of those things that makes the fact "More cost,much better figures" seems like a lie...Seriously though,100 dollars for this friggin hideous figure? Even if they sell him for 30 dollars I will never buy this ugly guy...

Really? I like this mold much better than the new Voyager Mech Tech Prime, though I'm not a fan of the new paint applications. He looks like he belongs in the Starlight express or something.

And a question for LOST Cybertronian. How were you able to close the front hood of Prime in truck mode securely? I couldn't close mine because the hinges for his hooks were too thick.

OP In Space: when good figures go bad. Saw this in person a few weeks ago-just awful.

Not even a Seibertron.com gallery can make him look good.

I have my reasons for that.Here's some :-

1)The ugly backpack...
2)The kibble on the arm
3)IMO the arms proportion is small compare to the body.
4)the wheel's placement on the waist
5)the annoying transformation
6)the small feet
7)the feet's proportion. trust me i can explain but it will be too long and no one bothers to read it anyway.

So there. Honestly this mould seems like a knock-off and mini version of the leader mould.Well if anyone else have any objection to my cons of the mould(Like Warbreak did to my cons on the Crankcase mould)...Dont bother.Cause my opinion on the cons will not change...EVER.

I now have this awful image in my head of Astrotrain and the Railbots racing around on stage singing "Pumping Iron". :lol:

This is a question for Seibertron as these are his galleries and he took the pictures. I have never transformed this figure with the hooks. I just wrote the news copy :D .

That Prime IS a shame, but just for the Starlight Princess paint apps.

The darker gray parts and some of the paint deco, like on the tops of the legs and in the abdomen, really work.

I may cobble together a "perfect" version from Blades Prime and him.

Is there a way to get the star/moon paint apps of Optimus, or at least the windows? $18 for a Voyager and Deluxe is far too good a deal, stars or no stars.

I'm actually liking planetarium Prime. He'd be perfect without having the night sky tattooed all over him, but $17.99 for a voyager and a deluxe is too good to pass up, especially with Battle Blades Prime.

In Spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace.


well, someone had to make the refrence. :P
i think its a bit odd what they did with prime.
i mean, on the windscreen, yes, it could be a reflection, but as for the reast?

So it goes alot like this.

I've collected some weird shit over the years. Some decos are so tacky it makes rainbow look in style.

But stars? Seriously? That is a nice play on being in space and having the reflection of stars, but at the same time.. it's just not. This is just awful bonus failure.

You don't like the mold either? I think this is one of the better movie Optimus Prime molds, next to ROTF Leader Class. This actually isn't a bad toy at all if you can look past the childish looking stars and moon painted on the toy. Comettor is a great figure. Can't beat the price either since it costs less than a regular Voyager class for these two figures.

How about $26.98? I felt the same way as you but couldn't say no at that price. Thank you TRU for making a mistake and for honoring it on your website. :D

I always felt that the figure was "too busy" if you catch my drift..
