I'm a child of the 90's who has almost little-to-no real interest in the post-1987 G1 characters who neither appeared in any of the cartoons (American or Japanese) nor had any particularly notable role in the comics (Marvel, Dreamwave, IDW, etc.), but of the four Deluxes in this wave, it is Scoop who I find myself looking forward to the most. 8)

That doesn't look right. Shouldn't tail rotors all be equidistant from each other, a perfect X? Looks like it's missing two blades or something.

The way the legs are show hollow spots on the sides of the upper legs but the upper legs look much better when turned around 180 degrees. Just the knees are awkward as are the feet when you do this.

What it's looking like to me is they had to compromise for the inverted legs and chose to sacrifice the upper legs of the robot mode for looking better in vehicle mode. Any other side would have been the top/side of the upper leg piece in vehicle mode or the front in robot mode, so they chose to ignore it being on the outside in robot mode rather than redesign the thigh... which would have probably necessitated a game of "Which side do we put the screws on" ... actually I think the whole thing could have been solved if they designed the waist/hips piece to be rotatable 180 degrees in its slider (basically ending up with it "upside down" in one configuration. Really you can't see it in robot mode anyway, but it would reverse which side of the thigh is "outward" in robot mode and all we'd lose is the landing skiff c-clip points being on the outside... If I'm picturing this right in my head)


Solvew the issue once and for all: Waist flaps like Energon Bulkhead had... Its the only strike I have angainst Whirl, the sides of an otherwise amazing NOT Apache helicopter cockpit look like mechanical thighs. Somethi ng that could've folded over or around them, even something like how PRID Magnus' wheel assembly worked around his calf would've made a HUGE difference for me and could've covered or allowed for relocating the screw holes.

No... just no. I've used and printed Wet Transfer/Waterslide for model trains, and it won't work for TFs. the intended market is A) too young and/or too rough on them for the decals to work B)not gonna buy or have the sealcoat needed to protect the decals and C) not gonna have the patience or interest in masking their TFs to apply the decal sealer. And you HAVE to apply the sealer, water wo;t magically not activate the decals just because they're on Whirl and not the paper. "Optional" detail arguments won't work either, just ask the Arms Micron guys how much they love their naked figures.

Dry Transfers would be infintately better than wet, but they still takr more patince than aa 10 yea old is gonna spend on a toy, and even the 4H kids and young modellers who do kits and RC and Pinewood and whatever else won't do this to a toy like Whirl. And yes, kids will be buying Whirl, even if he is an homage to 80s fans, if he were a collector piece Wal-Mart wouldn't be carrying him!

Not everyone is a Customizer, nor should they be. Heck, I paint my own trains, I even have a Beast Hunters Hun Grr in a drying rack halfway to looking like Doublecross, (The lower half, if you were curious, I;m still working on his necks) and I wouldn't bother decalling Whirl if they weren't stickers.

Hasbro should be sending product samples to Ryan before their release for him to photograph. His photos make the figures seem so much more appealing than the standard stock photos. There have been so many figures that I hadn't planned on buying until I saw the Seibertron gallery.

I thought about doing this ... I wouldn't mind having 2 more sets. That seems to be my happy troop builder number. 3 Sweeps. 3 Sharticons. 3 of each Vehicon mold/version. Basically ... a leader and two troops.

Thanks for the compliment, GuyIncognito. It's nice to hear things like this.

I wish Hasbro would do this also! Mattel does it for some of their products. Licensed companies such as Shout! and Kids Logic have sent me early samples for review purposes. The catch with Hasbro is that they seem to treat all of the fansites the same, regardless of their popularity (i.e. if they do it for one site, they do it for all ... no favorites, which I'm assuming came out of the whole Orson's World ordeal 10 years ago). Great for the little guy, but not so great for the big sites like Seibertron.com.

If Hasbro's reading this ... I'd love to get early samples so that I can photograph them to help with promoting upcoming products!

Well they're missing out on a great way to get their products promoted for free! You'd get more traffic for your site, and Hasbro would get free advertising. It would be a win-win situation.

Nice galleries. They have reconfirmed my disinterest in the minicons, but are making me get my hopes up for a cool Jhiaxus. Thats not a bad Starscream mold from what I see. Anyone able to tell me if the shoulder intakes/canons can be positioned in a halfway point? I think that would be ideal for the Jhiaxus version. The jet mode seems to have the intakes at an angle that doesn't go with the rest of the jet... Why is that?

Thanks, I must have missed that one. It looks like the wing arrangement can also be altered to suit a more contained body opposed to the wide shoulder look.

That's scary. This new softer plastic Hasbro is using is very problematic. I've broken four deluxe class Transformers Generations figures so far ...

#1 - Bumblebee ... a tab broke off first time I transformed him.

#2 - Orion Pax (Takara) ... one of the wheels snapped off first time I transformed him.

#3 - Megatron ... severe stress marks on sides of black plastic where his head pops through because his head was mis-positioned when transforming his chest area and pushing his head through the hole.

#4 - Skids ... ball joint for upper left leg snapped right off his crotch when I tried popping off the leg to swap the upper leg parts that are misassembled from the factory.

That's four out of 14 deluxe class Generations figures that I've had problems with. Very distressing (pun intended)!!!

Adding to our expansive galleries, Seibertron.com presents Takara's answer to Hasbro's IDW-inspired Generations Bumblebee, Generations Bumblebee Goldbug! Despite the figure's name, Bumblebee Goldbug does not share the same head sculpt that Hasbro's Goldfire (an homage to Generation One Bumblebee's upgraded form, Goldbug), rather using a nigh-identical deco with the exception of the head, weapon(s), and forearms. Check out the suped-up Autobot scout below!

I great prefer the Hasbro decos to the Takara one, as the Hasbro ones are more media-accurate as opposed to Takara's deco that looks more like it's trying to evoke the colors of Movie Bumblebee (minus the blue head).

Like the yellow plastic colors and the gunmetal grey, but nothing else. So that's basically 3 Bumblebees out of the same mold so far without even a hint of a possible re-use as... well ANY of the multitude of characters who share his body type.

I despise Hasbro's Bumblebee.

I adore Hasbro's Goldfire.

Takara's Bumblebee Goldbug falls somewhere in the middle.

Wow the exact same thing happened to me on the same leg on the same ball joint when I was trying to fix the misassembly issue.... was a bitch to find another one. ended up paying 20 bucks for him at a comic book shop.

The latter is a repaint and remold of triple changer, triple faced Blitzwing, with a new blue colour scheme and head; Rhinox, on the other hand, is an entirely new mold, upgrading his Beast Wars look on a design by Emiliano Santalucia.

Doubledealer is a big waste of that mold. Flywheels was perfect for it. Even that Megatron custom someone did with it was a better use.

Looks like Powermasters are going to be one line that Hasbro won't homage during the Generations line... I wonder if Brainstorm is going to be a proper headmaster?

The Torca thing is more of a deep fandom desire rather than anything concrete. I'd say go for the mold now if you want it, rather than waiting for something that may not happen later.

I agree, and I think Springer with a new head might work OK for Battletrap, but the Blitzwing mold is a dead ringer for Flywheels.

I doubt it. Hasbro doesn't want kids to lose the heads of Transformers! (though I don't know what difference it makes with all of the ball jointed heads that are missing in collections I buy).

I really really thought about it but decided against it since I know the Takara one will have paint apps and I'd like to show off the differences between the two molds. Would love to see what it looks like if someone else does it.

Also, wasn't Sandstorm the original design, and Springer the retool? :-?

Seibertron.com is proud to present not one, not two not three but four new Generations galleries! The Deluxes are here to help you in your recreations of the events in Dark Cybertron, if so you wished: Waspinator, Skids, Dreadwing and Goldfire. The first two are entirely new molds, while the latter are retooling and repaints of previous Generations Deluxes Megatron and Bumblebee; we've also made sure to show them off next to previous incarnations of the characters!

Great galleries as always, Seibertron! (Seriously, I think you could sell me the ugliest piece of plastic crud out there. Image )

I have to ask a question: did you have trouble with Skids falling over backwards? I don't know if I have him mis-transformed or something, but he seemed very back heavy. Some of your pics had him leaning quite a bit forward, but I didn't know if that was to get his guns all lined up or if you also had stability issues. With feet as big as Skids has, I'd think he would be more stable.

Thanks!

Many of them have been mis-assembled. Look at the figure's gray upper thigh pieces. If the left one has an "R" on it and the right one has an "L" on it, that's your problem. Luckily they pop right off so you can switch them without unscrewing anything or removing any pins. HOWEVER, even when they're assembled correctly, he's still a bit back-heavy due to his lack of "heels".

Play around with his legs some more; they have stiff joints and may bend more than you think. if you can get him into a sort of chicken-leg stance with his feet back as far as possible and his torso out over his toes, that helps.

He really just needs a piece of plastic to fold down on the backs of his feet; so many other figures have this I'm surprised they overlooked it on Skids.

Ah, I forgot Smokescreen was once a jet!

I have to ask a question: did you have trouble with Skids falling over backwards? I don't know if I have him mis-transformed or something, but he seemed very back heavy. Some of your pics had him leaning quite a bit forward, but I didn't know if that was to get his guns all lined up or if you also had stability issues. With feet as big as Skids has, I'd think he would be more stable.

Thanks!

Thanks for the compliments about the galleries. I'm glad you are enjoying them, Agamemnon.

As for Skids, unfortunately he has stability issues. :(

Man I so want to finish G2 Dreadwing and Smokescreen's galleries. They're two of my favorite Transformers and are amongst the first Transformers to be poseable like action figures. One day ... maybe later this year.
