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)

Scoop has a notable role in the IDW comics.. :-?

(By a broad definition of 'notable'.)

Skywarp is out of place next to those overpriced scouts.

Looking forward to the Mini-Cons the most. Love small combiners, and they'll make great rivals to Abominus!


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.

Anyone troop building these minicons? I think I kind of am =X hopefully they'll be enough connections points on them where I can just clip everything into a huge massive ball. :grin:

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.

That's a neat idea. With that many you'd have your small army of Ammonites. 8)

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.

The AH-64 Apache would like to object to your opinion :grin:

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.

:D That would be awesome! I'd love to be able to bring this content to you guys sooner than when it first hits retail.

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?

Yes they can be posed halfway as shown in this picture

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.

Yipe, Whirl may look great but he actually seems to have some problems. The legs I can forgive as you're left with a good choice. This... not so much:

Could be isolated incident, I say be really careful nonetheless.
